HIGH IN BACTERIA Many cannabis consumers who’ve engaged in group smoke sessions have occasionally wondered about the potential germs involved in sharing a joint or pipe. LA-based Moose Labs recently conducted a study to find out exactly how unclean these shared smoking implements are. The results… were not great. The study found that cannabis pipes, vapes and joints contain “an astounding level of bacteria.” As you probably guessed, the tests yielded much higher-than-anticipated results. According to Moose Labs, the average bowl contains “almost one and a half times more bacteria than a public toilet seat.” Now, level-headed folks might look at these results and shrug. After all, germs are literally everywhere. As a result, your immune system is well equipped to protect you. But on the other hand, eeewwwwww. The report concluded that…

the diversity of dank

“The questions concerning the origin of a given cultivated plant—how it became cultivated, where its original native land was, where the sources of the development of varieties were found, and where the clues to the wealth of forms could be discovered—are not only of general importance for explaining the historical destiny of people, but also of actual and practical importance for the present agronomical work toward the exploration of varieties for plant breeding.” NIKOLAI VAVILOV THE RUSSIAN PLANT GENETICIST quoted above is considered the godfather of biodiversity. His groundbreaking discoveries in the early part of the 20th century, which included naming the subspecies Cannabis afghanica in the 1920s, pioneered the collection and breeding of crops with immunities to pests and diseases as well as tolerance for harsh growing conditions.

unintended consequences

WHEN THE GREAT state of Texas legalized hemp production earlier this year, it looked like the cannabidiol (CBD) industry would get a major boost. The Republican-dominated Texas House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved the bill 140 to 3, and the Republican governor, Greg Abbott, promptly signed it into law, which took effect immediately. What these conservative lawmakers did not realize is that their new law would, in effect, decriminalize weed. This is because Texas House Bill 1325 makes a rather fine distinction between non-psychoactive hemp and marijuana with buzzier levels of THC. Since state crime labs aren’t equipped to tell the difference, prosecutors decided to ease up on charging folks with mere possession. The Texas District & County Attorneys Association saw fit to issue an advisory: “The distinction between marijuana and hemp requires…
