Spray Allows Any Plant to Produce THC?

There is a lot of buzz about a new chemical growth supplement that is supposed to allow growers to produce THC within any plant they grow.

The product was expected to be on sale from a company called Montsaint Genie Tech. Unfortunately since the news hit the streets the product, which was supposed to be coming out earlier this year, has never been released and the company appears to be nonexistent.

Articles posted all over the internet, mostly on stoner news outlets, claimed to have received information that this product was legitimate and legal. Some sites even quote a confident statement from an alleged Montsaint Genie Tech scientist.

“We probably can put the THC segment into almost any plant in existence,” says lead scientist Rebeca Vale.

“It’s a very simple process. We are starting work on oak and maple trees now.”

The idea was that they had already produced a batch of tomatoes that produced more THC than cannabis itself. So that if you dried the tomatoes out, you could smoke them and get thoroughly baked. Unfortunately the way it looks now, the whole thing was probably just a hoax.

The name Montsaint Genie Tech is now commonly thought to be a parody of the infamous seed company Monsanto. The company featured in documentaries from the likes of Michael Moore, and are sited for creating a monopoly on the commercial produce seed industry, and ruining the lives of farmers and the stability of Americas agriculture industry.

So you can be pretty sure the idea of smoking tomatoes is just a stoner dream and nothing more. Looks like we’re all going to have to keep smoking weed. Seems okay to me.

Post-Rapture Marijuana Growing Tips With Jorge Cervantes

Are you a nice atheist or jewish grower of the “devil’s weed” — and have some fears about growing in a post-Rapture world?

Flames, earthquakes, hell on earth — yikes!

In an effort to help growers not partaking in this Saturday’s Rapture — we felt the need to give out some advice from the top growing expert in cannabis, Jorge Cervantes.

So, Jorge, what kind of problems are we going to have with the world on fire, including everyone for that matter?

High heat is a problem. Any infernal temperatures are smoking! Maybe that is what it is about smoking, converting cannabinoids to their psychoactive non-acid state.

Is indoor growing going to be something that everyone will have to do post-rapture?

Probably not. Oxygen is necesary for human life, and plant life for that matter. There is so much CO2 that will be generated it could be the end for humanity. Somebody has a plan, probably Donald Trump. Ask him he always knows what to do.

Since God created cannabis, does Jesus have a special place for those that grow?

Of course, he is the one that multiplies fish and teaches fishing! We think the same about cannabis! In Spain we have San Canuto, the patron saint of cannabis. Jesus is definately front row center of the cannabis oil anointment crew.

What kind of preventative steps should those believing that the Rapture is coming?

I think I would stash as many seeds as possible, collect about 50 kilos of great hash and four times as much cannabis. Then I would sit it out and stay cool, probably in a NSA basement.

And for those that plan on being Rapture-ized?

Tell them to give you everything they have. they won’t need it after Saturday.

For those still interested in learning more about growing in a non-rapture world, check out Jorge Cervantes’ website.

Pot Growing Trailer Stolen From High Times Medical Cannabis Cup

A pot-growing trailer known as the “GrowBot” was stolen from a medical marijuana
trade show in Denver over the weekend, and the owner on Tuesday offered a $5,000
reward for its return.

Greg Childre, who builds custom trailers for a variety of crops at his Georgia manufacturing plan, said the trailer was stolen from the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup in Denver late Sunday night. The 28-foot long “GrowBot” trailer was driven out of the trade show parking lot in full view of security guards, Childre said.

Parking lot surveillance cameras captured the crime, but did not detect the license plates of the Dodge truck that hitched up the trailer and drove off, he said. Childre told Reuters the trailer is computerized, and is stocked with grow lights and  security devices. “Anything you need to grow in a controlled environment,” he said. “It has all the bells and whistles.” Childre said he builds the trailers for other crops, including mushrooms and blueberries, but most of his business is derived from the medical marijuana industry. The trailer is valued at $50,000, and there was no marijuana inside the vehicle, he said.

Could Medical Marijuana Get the Al Capone Treatment?

(Forbes.com 3/30/11) Could the IRS use the tax code to shut down medical marijuana dispensaries?

In 1931, mobster Al Capone was finally put behind bars because he was convicted of multiple tax-evasion charges, and the IRS is taking a similar approach with medical marijuana today. Many dispensaries in California now face audits that could result in their owing millions of dollars in back taxes.

According to Forbes columnist Robert W. Wood, the agency is relying on Internal Revenue Code Section 280E, which “precludes deductions for any business trafficking in controlled substances.” While dispensaries are legal in some states, including California, marijuana trafficking remains illegal on a federal level. The IRS is arguing that normal business expenses that most companies can deduct on their taxes are not applicable to dispensaries.

The Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana in Fairfax, Calif., was the first dispensary to be hit with this ruling earlier this month. Founder Lynette Shaw told the Marin Independent Journal of California that the IRS audited the company’s returns for 2008 and 2009 and disallowed all of the alliance’s business deductions such as buying marijuana, hiring employees, and renting office space. Shaw did not disclose the amount the IRS told her she owes, but she described it as “a staggering sum” totaling several million dollars.

“Every dispensary in the nation, past, present and future is dead if this is upheld,” Shaw said. An IRS spokesperson declined to discuss the case. Shaw is currently planning an appeal.

According to a report from The American Independent, at least 12 dispensaries in California are currently being audited by the IRS.

As columnist Wood points out, the law isn’t completely clear. A previous tax court ruling allowed dispensaries to deduct expenses for activities not directly related to dispensing marijuana, such as caregiving, counseling, education and advocacy.

Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), told The American Independent that the immaturity of the medical marijuana industry could have opened the door for these audits, since dispensaries are trying to take normal business deductions while also asking for special treatment for their product’s medicinal value.

“Not many people show up in the newspapers screaming that they make millions of dollars and don’t want to pay taxes,” said St. Pierre.
