In 2014 the two veteran Cannabis breeders were experimenting with crossing Chems and Diesels. What followed was described by the part as a lucky accident. It resulted in a triple back-crossed Diesel getting crossed with some Chocolate Thai.

The story goes that the resin caused Joesy’s hand to get glued to a telephone. This was like a scene from a TV ad for the famous glue,  and the rest is history.

His partner, Lone Watty,  died just a year ago on May 23rd 2019

Albania to Legalize Marijuana

legalize marijuana

Long regarded as one of Europe’s biggest illegal trafficking hub, Albania’s Prime Minister Edi Rama has just announced plans to legalize marijuana.

Albania has been one of Europe’s leading producers of illegal weed. It is hoped that by legalizing it,  it will be the end of the black market and all that goes with it.

The country has been taking on the illegal market for years and this is seen as a natural progression. As Prime Minister Rami puts it,  “Illegal cultivation is completely under control. This is the third or fourth year of consolidation. We plan to pass the bill in this session of parliament.”

In one of the weirder stories of the week,  Missouri lawmakers have just voted down a bill for them all to get stoned. This would have required all “members of the Missouri House shall consume a substantial dose of medicinal marijuana prior to entering the chamber or voting on any legislation.”

The bill was intended to get members to focus properly on a focus on a healthcare bill,

State Rep. Andrew McDaniel Wanted Them to Get Stoned

The defeat was not unanimous either! McDaniel said, “It was for the real betterment of all Missourians if some people would chill out. The proposal came up for a voice vote this Thursday, and was soundly defeated, although a few legislators were bold enough to say “aye.”

Whilst it was all but tongue in cheek, it did have its serious side. The State Rep said that he proposed the bill to “get everyone to chill out and get a little chuckle.” In his opinion, other lawmakers were piling “a whole bunch of crap” amendments onto the bill, and he hoped his amendment would “get them all to pay attention” and “quit messing it up.”
