Try growing sativa


no shiat. my last two plants were a very nice sativa, and one plant only yielded about 3/4oz. while the other was a little less than 3oz. very nice stuff, tho.

/i'm allowed to have up to 12oz. at a time, but if i grew the max allowable i'd be WAY over (6 flowering, six in veg over 14", and six in veg under 14").

I just find it ADORABLE that cops believe people weren't already smoking pot anywhere and everywhere except right in front of their piggy noses.

I mean, in the park, on the bar patio, movie theater parking lots. It's literally EVERYWHERE except where cops happen to be looking at the moment.

Let me guess, they are going to enforce this crap but not enforce the mask mandate that might actually save a few lives.

Kinda related. When my state first passed the right-turn-on-red law, i started doing it the next day. But the law would not be in effect for one year. LOL
The delay was so they would have time to put up the no turn on red signs. And other things.
I stopped doing it once i found out the delay. No tickets :)

I'm VT we can grow up to six plants, no more than two flowering at a time.
You can have up to 1 oz on you.
There is no limit to what you can have at home as long as you grew it.
I don't know what the limit is for concentrates on you is.
04/2022 recreational sales become legal of I recall correctly.

The cops were on stage at an unpermitted, maskless Christian concert in the city park a couple weeks ago.  The city *might* fine the organizers.  There isn't a good pic with the cops, but this is a pic from the stage.  Yes, they got to set up a whole concert stage then host a concert and nobody even attempted to stop them.

For reference, it was the Let Us Worship! event at Tempe Town Lake.

Is there a mask mandate in Arizona at all? This was only a few days back:

A statewide mask mandate, a 14-day quarantine for people coming from out-of-state and enforcement on bad actors violating COVID-19 guidelines are among the asks from Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, Tucson Mayor Regina Romero, Flagstaff Mayor Coral Evans and Tolleson Mayor Anna Tovar.

the local mandates are so flimsy I don't see how anyone could enforce them. Phoenix as an example: https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/em-an​d-hs/1353

Those with a medical condition, mental health condition, developmental disability, or are otherwise covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act.Children under two years old [ amended by County Order].
People whose religious beliefs prevent them from wearing a face covering.
Restaurant patrons while they are eating and/or drinking.
Individuals exercising outdoors or while walking or exercising with other people from the same household, if physical distancing of 6 feet from others who are not your family members can be maintained.
People engaging in organized group or team sports, exercise or other physical activities where it is not practicable or feasible to wear a mask or physically distance.
People in settings where it is not practical or feasible to wear a face covering, including when obtaining or rendering goods or services, such as the receipt of dental services or medical treatments.


I can have a mental health condition... it's pretty hard to tell. I can have a religious belief too, without any way for a cop to know that I do. 'exercising' is so vague and to include all forms of activity. If I'm walking, I'm exercising. Yoga is basically just standing, in fancy ways... And that's exercise.

The fact that they give exemptions for eating in restaurants shows pretty clearly that they don't care.

I won't argue that the mask laws are nearly worthless with the number of loopholes they have put in.  However, the police enforce other flimsy laws when they want to.  Some AZ jurisdictions do have a fine penalty and/or consider mask violations a misdemeanor. They could write up tickets or even arrest people if they wanted to. If someone wants to claim an exemption, all a cop has to do is say "I disagree, here's your ticket, pay your $200 or take a day off work to come to court to fight it."

There is in Maricopa County, not statewide, and it's not enforced.  Some cities also have their own mandates (the cities put them in place first, then Maricopa County folded under pressure from the mayors).  But, again, it's not enforced, at all.  The Christian concert I posted a pic of was actively flouting the rules, and the city doesn't even know if they can cite them.
