An audio interview with Dale Sky Jones, Executive Chancellor of Oaksterdam University.

Five states, all of which currently have medical use laws, are voting on adult use (aka “recreational” cannabis) – California, Nevada, Arizona, Massachusetts, and Maine. Four other states – Arkansas, Montana, North Dakota, and Florida – are voting on medical use.

Under the current regulations an estimated 758,000 patients in the Golden State today are able to obtain medical cannabis to treat a variety of medical conditions and hundreds of legitimate collectives have provided patients with safe, effective and affordable medical cannabis.

High Temperatures will not kill the plants as long as the roots are kept moist. However, it will ruin the flowers, which will be loose and sparse along a stretched stem. Therefore it is essential to keep the room in the low to mid 70′s F (about 24° C) with unenriched air below 82° F (27° C) when the air is enriched with CO2.
