Granny Storm Crow has been carefully compiling and disseminating this vast collection of information quietly and freely for years, and is a true grassroots pioneer of simply telling the truth about cannabis. And we help support her, by distributing her list equally freely. But I must warn you…it’s now up to 20 honking megabytes, despite being compressed like a bubble hash puck! So if you’re ready, click here.
Once again, I think it’s appropriate to let Granny herself make the introduction:
It’s a cold, foggy day here in northern California, and here I am again, sitting at my computer, figuring out what to say to all of you. Most of the time, the words I need come so easily to me, but not today! I’ve got a good case of writer’s block, but there are a few things I know I need to mention.
Lately, cannabis has become a very hot topic, both in the news and the world of science. It is getting harder to keep up with all of the new information. Yet, it’s still joy-filled work for me and I get to learn so much. I don’t see me stopping doing this.
One major change in the List, all of the recent news articles are now separate from the studies. Between all the news articles and studies, the 2010-2016 “Conditions” section was just getting too darn big — over 1,600 pages of links! I think being able to read the information as news will speed learning for the beginners. And those of you who are “into” the studies, you won’t have to wade through all those news articles to “get to the meat”.
I am hoping that all of you are registered to vote — several states have either medical, or full, legalization coming up later this year. Be sure that personal growing is allowed — otherwise you will be just trading one drug lord for another! The growing and personal use of medicinal herbs should not be a crime!
With legalization comes responsibility. If you grow outdoors near others, try to pick strains with a more pleasant odor such as “Agent Orange”, “C-99”, “Grape Ape” or any good “Lemony” strain. Your home-grown doesn’t need to smell like a road-kill skunk to be good! And consider using a herbal vaporizer if your smoke may drift to another’s home. Vaping is healthier than smoking and easier on your lungs. (See “Methods of Use – Vaporizers” in the “Conditions” section.) We need to respect those who choose not to use cannabis, and should ask for only the same level of courtesy in return.
