          Friday’s NORML NEWS is on the way… until the newsletter arrives here’s the latest from Leafly -

          The first-ever Leafly Cannabis Harvest Report, released today, counted 13,042 cannabis farm licenses in the 11 legal states where retail stores are open. This unprecedented peek into US pot production found farmers growing 2,278 metric tons per year. It’s a mind-boggling number—enough to fill 57 Olympic-size swimming pools, or more than 11,000 dump trucks stretching more than 36 miles.

            Can you imagine what 2300 tons going up in smoke must do for global warming? Sheesh!
            Global warming is for tree huggers!

            That does not include us home growers. If you figure about 3 grows a year the average home-grower will easily add 1 lb per person per year. GWE Members alone easily add an additional 16,900 lbs (conservatively) to that total per year.

            Pretty interesting article. Wild to think that it is no lower than fifth on the list of crops by wholesale value by state… ahead of cotton! As you said, this doesn’t count home grows, black market grows and the stuff that goes out the back door of legitimate grow companies, likely grown in excess of their license.

            I wonder if they are calculating based on dried weight bud, or something else and if it includes trim that can be used in other down stream products like edibles and concentrates.

            No No! Don't go!! You are a great inspiration to me sir and there are so few like you. Your interest in improving the ability for new growers to get good info is very supportive of the original intent in this forum and while I would like to help you continue, I just don't have the energy anymore either to carry this load. I for one appreciate all you have done for the community. You are always the one who calls for everyone to calm down when things go south. As I have gotten to know you personally I have been so impressed with your level of compassion and caring for all but more importantly Your ability to grow phenomenal weed and wanting to share. I feel very blessed to have been able to host you and your lovely wife in my home prior to your doc appointment and the opportunity to get to know you better. Thank you! You da man!

                All praise and respect to this man. BU2B is a hero and GWE is *very* lucky to have him!


                Best wishes Brother.
                I grow exclusively in large pots using soil comprised of the compost I make combined with Foxfarm or other quality commercial soils as an amendment. Appropriate nutes as needed. State of the art LED lighting and an evolving system of environmental controls allows me to pamper my plants and let them tell me what they need.
                My goal is epicurean quality rather than high yield.
                I'm learning how to create cannabis tinctures and hashish and I almost always use a vaporizer to spare my aging lungs.
                Despite my avatar name I'm generally amenable and helpful. So, if there's a question I'm qualified to answer, hit me up!

                  Wow BU2B that is a real kick in the head. I have noticed recently that more people that I know are finding themselves in this state of affairs. We all do battle against entropy to stay here with the people who make a difference in life. I would like you to know that in the short time that I have been able to interact with you there has been a positive change in my life. Your knowledge that you are willing to share is invaluable. The person who shares knowledge with others is to be honored. I have this menace in my history and have been keeping it at bay, so far successfully. Stay vigilant friend. Best wishes for you and your family. Please stay with us. Your inclusion in the world is a good thing to be preserved. Peace.
                  Don't worry, be happy, grow sticky buds.

                    Life has an amazing way of kicking you when you least need it. But you kick back and aim for the nads. Life is dirty. Fight back dirty. Chin up BU2B. We will leave this game only when they drag our bodies off the field.

                        November 25, 2021


                        I hope you and yours are having a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. As we are all about to sit down for a big meal with family and friends, I wanted to make sure you saw our message from yesterday. We have so much to be thankful for as marijuana consumers this year and, as we head into the holiday season, we wanted to take a minute to look back on all our major victories. Together, we're changing marijuana laws around the country. If we keep standing together and fighting as one movement, we will liberate even more states from the grip of prohibition in 2022.
                        Thanks for all you've done and all you will do to help legalize marijuana across this great nation.
                        Onward,
                        Erik Altieri
                        NORML Executive Director

                        and here is the 'message from yesterday':


                        As we reflect back on our many hard-earned victories of 2021, it is apparent that we have much to be thankful for.

                        This year, the possession and use of cannabis by adults became legal in five additional states:
                        Connecticut, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, and Virginia. That means that an additional 42 million Americans have been liberated from the oppressive and failed policy of marijuana prohibition!

                        We are also thankful that more states are taking actions to right the past wrongs of cannabis criminalization. In recent months, state officials in California, Illinois, New York,
                        Virginia, and elsewhere have moved to either seal or expunge the convictions of some 2.2 million Americans who formerly faced the lifelong stigma of having a marijuana-related criminal record.

                        And we are thankful that we are continuing to win the hearts and minds of the American people. A record 68 percent of US adults now say that marijuana ought to be legal nationwide, according to the latest polling compiled by Gallup. This includes majorities of Democrats, Independents, and Republicans – as well as voters of virtually all ages.

                        But while we have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, we must not lose sight of the fact that we still have much more to do.

                        As we begin to look forward to 2022, we see new and important opportunities ahead of us. We see pathways to victory in various statehouses across this country, like Rhode Island and Maryland, and we anticipate voters in several additional states, such as Missouri and Nebraska, to approve marijuana reform ballot initiatives next November. At the federal level, for the
                        first time we have dueling Democratic and Republican-led efforts – such as The MORE Act, the Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act and the newly introduced States Reform Act -- to repeal federal cannabis prohibition and open up pathways to interstate marijuana commerce.

                            Sorry for the confusion. The GWE Growers Forums are indeed NOT GOING ANYWHERE!! And the goal is still to get as many educated growers as possible. As long as I’m around it will always be GWE4ME but The OG Group is pretty close to being history.
