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.

CA Bill Could Make Growing Pot a Misdemeanor

Bill Could Make Growing Pot a Misdemeanor

Legislation would make marijuana cultivation a “wobbler offense”

Growing marijuana could soon be a misdemeanor if the Legislature passes a bill sponsored State Assemblyman Tom Ammiano.

His bill would change marijuana cultivation from a mandatory felony to a so-called wobbler offense, giving district attorneys the option of charging it as a misdemeanor or a felony. The bill made it out of committee Wednesday and will now head to the Assembly floor.

California residents voted against legalizing marijuana last year, but the state has been rolling back criminal penalties for marijuana-related offenses. In October, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a law making possession of an ounce or less of marijuana an infraction, punishable by a $100 fine.

Patrick Goggin, a San Francisco lawyer who has worked on hemp legislation in Sacramento, said Ammiano’s bill has a good chance of passing through the assembly and the senate. The question will be whether Gov. Jerry Brown, who is close with the prison guards union, is willing to sign it, he said.

“It could be a difficult decision for him because of the relationship he has with the prison guards,” said Goggin. “At the same time everything’s about reducing the deficit, and this would be a deficit reduction measure because fewer people would be going to state prison.”

While felonies are punishable with state prison terms, misdemeanors can carry lighter penalties like fines or time in county jail.

The bill, AB 1017, would leave the decision of whether pot growers should be charged with felonies or misdemeanors up to local district attorneys. Under the bill, growing an acre of marijuana could be treated as a misdemeanor.

District attorneys from Humboldt and Mendocino Counties, where marijuana cultivation is one of the leading industries, support the law.

In case anyone forgot, marijuana is still illegal under federal law.
