Welcome to episode 42 of Marihuana Television News. The program for cannabis culture! Hi, I’m Rita. Today I’m back with you while my colleagues are traveling to bring you interesting stories. This month, cannabis enters the campaign. By this time of year, people more or less know who they’re going to vote for, or not vote for, in the elections. People who are interested in marijuana are going to look for this issue in politicians’ platforms. But this topic is also becoming more interesting to people who, for example, pay taxes or people who prefer that security forces are used for other matters that aren’t fining young people.
This month, we’re going to Morocco to see how hashish is made in our Concentrates section. In La Barraca de MarÃa, we are starting a new crop with Estela. In Drug Report, the illustrator Uriel PÃ©rez will sketch us a picture of what the situation is like in Mexico. The uncertainty brought about by the Supreme Court’s decision on the Ebers association and the pressure from police continues to cause many clubs to close or stop their activity. In others, they are exercising caution and have stopped accepting new members. This regressive situation can only be changed by the results of the upcoming elections. The RegulaciÃ³n Responsable platform, which now includes nearly one hundred organizations
has counterattacked the Supreme Court with, at the moment, a motion of dismissal on the decision. In other news, the platform has also positioned itself as a tool that puts civil society at the service of politicians in order to advance on the path to regulation. The main reason that we are here today is because we are going to regulate cannabis in 2017. The RegulaciÃ³n Responsable platform presented, in a press conference in the CÃrculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid their initiative for â€œComprehensive Regulation of Cannabis in Spain.â€� with the launch of the campaign for these elections. Representatives of the platform had the support of two important figures
in the world of the fight against drugs and research into medical cannabis: Araceli ManjÃ³n and Manuel Guzman. We have a proposal to make to you. An open proposal, a proposal for a more mature, more intelligent and more just society that is based on not criminalizing people and focusing in a different way on problems or on the topic of cannabis. As cannabis users, as organizations worried about preventing risks as organizations focused on the therapeutic field, we want another way of doing politics. And a campaign for elections is a good moment to ask for this.
We don’t just want to put forth our proposals for regulation. We want to have a voice. We want to have an impact. We want to be able to be present and form a part of the entire process of regulation and of the whole process which will eventually lead us to a change in the way we understand responsible society. In Spain, on this subject, as on others, we are going against what is happening in the rest of the world. In these last few months, or one or two years, we have had more than one warning sign that the traditionally progressive trend in Spain in terms of drugs, that we have for many years now, is reversing. Keeping in mind that the consumption of drugs in Spain has never been a crime, not even during the dictatorship.
This trend is starting to be reversed by judicial decisions, by decisions of the Attorney General’s Office and by legislative decisions the new Law for Citizen Safety which seem to be taking us backwards. For all of these reasons, December 20 will be crucial. We will continue on all fronts and we are going to exhaust all legal channels. But, one of the issues pointed out in the decision is that, the message is that this has to be achieved as it cannot be done in any other way, next door to here, in the Parliament, in the Congress. Nowadays, we have a body of knowledge about science, from the most basics: biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology to more extensive areas: medicine, all the fields around medicine, psychology, psychiatry, among others
VARIEDADES COLOMBIANAS DE CANNABIS
Colombian marijuana varieties are three major Colombian varieties: corinto, punto rojo and mango biche. the Santa Marta golden is characterized mainly by its form of dried, the Santa Marta as variety lost his inheritance pure, Today is a quot;landracequot; very impure.others are known as san Agustin or manizales black but it is the same varieties bred by farmers and than they acquire different shades in effect, while being of the same variety. vegetative: 4 to 5 months. Flowering: between 3 and 4 monthscharacteristic taste and smell hash and stoned immediate, powerful, disorienting, physical.appreciated by farmers because of its high yield and resistance to fungus and mildew. good results in cold weather. fastgrowing plant, much branched from the base, thin and dark foliage.can be identified from germinating by stem red pigmentation, characteristic that disappears in midvegetative stage. the preflowering in the mango biche activates a second phase of growth, during which can double in size while flowering, growing from a modest plant squalid appearance and sparse foliage, to a dense bush of magnificent proportions.its strong, pungent and acid odor evokes the smell of green fruit, immature, quot;Bichequot;. and this from the beginning of flowering, its main attraction.its sparse buds, messy and crowded join together forming large queues that usually ends breaking, yielding to its own weight.when mature, a mango biche in good condition is a chubby monster appearance and production can, in optimal conditions, exceed 3 kilos of dry matter per plant, none surpasses the mango biche productivity. vegetative: 3 to 4 Â½ months. flowering between 3 and 3 Â½ months.variety from Corinth region in Cauca, one of the main producing areas of Colombia. the corinto presents two phenotypes; a sativa tall and branched and other Indica small and conical.on occasion there is a very short stature phenotype sativa and flowers look great, sometimes we find one of equal height that the indica that no branches but it made ??a huge buds like balls in the armpits. shaped Christmas tree, little branched, reaching great heights in a short time of flowering is homogeneous throughout the plant. with buds even, dense and small, slightly resinous aroma without marking or characteristic. although is a large plant, not is a great producer, but has the advantage of more uniform ripening faster than their other mates. the punto rojo has variations depending on their place of cultivation, but it is the same punto rojo here be named:high mountaincentral valleyspunto rojo scorpion
punto rojo purple of highlands.vegetative: between 2 and 4 months. Flowering: 3 to 3 Â½ months.this variety is typical of mountain areas in the highlands at lower temperatures, has been developed to be more resistant to extreme conditions.well, this variety can regulate its size, delaying or accelerating flowering depending on external conditions. has a vegetative growth phase of 24 months, but usually is a plant of medium size and relatively fast maturation. during flowering sharp change to violetblack pigmentation of their foliage, beginning with the ovaries and maturity with small green leaves. this feature has developed perhaps as protection against UVA excess of high altitudes.when the buds are dried, take a striking dark color with a sweet smell and mellow. very good flavor and strong smoked has much CBD, but good combination, making it the favorite in the effects. (Central Valleys)vegetative: 4 to 5 months. flowering: 3 to 4 Â½ months.the punto rojo varies by region of origin, but is known by the same name.is grown commercially for its high productivity. fast growing, highly branched conical and dark foliage and generous. their pistils are red, this feature is more marked where the sun reaches directly flowers and disappears in shadier sites, where they remain white.large outbreaks, rounded, compact and well formed. produces very little resin glands barely perceptible, thus demonstrating that the effect is not always related to the amount of crystals. soft, sweet smell, physical effects, stoned progressive and good taste. punto rojo scorpion (from coffee region)vegetative: 3 to 4 months. Flowering: 3 to 3 Â½ months.plant conical, little branched somewhat pale foliage, with an elongate main flake which tends to bend by its own weight as it gains density.the scorpion has a natural tendency to regeneration and its summit is always in apical growth, even after completely blossomed and matured all the plant and be almost on the floor, his quot;vegetative tipquot; will tend to straighten and . and. grow upright toward the sun, evoking the shape of the tail of a scorpion. with very dense buds and elongated clusters form stacked in long lines of compactness and good resin, pigmentation of their ovaries and some of the smaller leaves indicate its maturity.very little aroma, something citrus. physical stone but not very powerful, allowing delight without exceeding, creamy soft smoking, good flavor but not very tasty. the quot;Santa Marta goldenquot; was cultivated on the northern coast, mainly in the Sierra Nevada and which gave its golden hue and its effect was just the way indigenous drying, was tearing strips of bark from the stems in end of flowering, with the lack of that section of stem, the plant will receive fewer nutrients slowly dying and taking its tone yellow or quot;goldenquot; and get stressed, producing more resin, taking effect that characterizes. after the bonanza marimbera in Colombia the government proceeded to the destruction of this plant, spraying forests with chemicals.those who were in the habit of drying, they stopped and so this variety was disappearing, surviving plants were crossed with other varieties, lost purity as is happening today with the Corinto. there is talk of quot;CRIPIquot;. with this name are designated hybrid varieties and cross developed in countries like Holland.when someone says quot;CRIPIquot; does not refer to national marijuana, Colombian, refers to foreign marihuanas.
Colombian varieties are so popular, that were used for to the quot;hazequot; and quot;skunkquot; SKUNKused plants from Afghanistan, Mexico and the Santa Marta golden Colombian. HAZEused plants from India, Thailand, Mexico and punto rojo Colombian that gives its purple hues.
