have to break into. This routinely gathers a large number of arrests, but the American
Civil Liberties Union claims illegal search and seizure on all of these arrests and most are
actually dismissed because of their illegal character.13
Another large proportion of the arrestees were apprehended in a public place—21
percent of the adults and 35 percent of the juveniles. Public arrests are often the
consequence of "stop and frisk" procedures, the suspect supposedly having given the
arresting officer "probable cause" to be searched. Obviously, much of the same police
conduct occurs with public arrests as those which take place in the automobile of the
suspect. The remaining third or so (35 percent for adults; 29 percent for juveniles) of the
arrests took place in a private place, most likely a house or apartment.14 Most of the
"systematic" arrests, i.e., those which result from the work of an undercover agent or an
informer, take place in a private establishment. However, probably most of these "private"
arrests are also a result of accident. A common sequence of events is as follows: "... a
person gets in bad company, or ends up at an address where they (the police) have some
information about a loud party, and they go there and they smell marijuana smoke, and
four or five, six, perhaps seven, people are arrested and complaints are issued and these
people are charged with the crime of marijuana."15
Obviously, the tactic used in law enforcement will influence the kind of suspect
arrested; a change in methods will result in the capture of a different sort of person. Who
gets arrested and who doesn't when arrests take place by accident or patrol harassment? It
seems clear that because of their sheer numbers, these methods are likely to result in the
arrest of a great many mere users. The frequent user-petty seller is vulnerable to arrest,
simply because he is around marijuana most of the time, and any random moment he is
approached by the police will find him possessing incriminating evidence. The large-scale
dealer who does not use is highly unlikely to be arrested if random patrol methods are
employed if he disposes of his goods quickly. In fact, since nearly all fairly regular
marijuana smokers have a supply on hand for their own use, the prevailing arrest tactics
are most likely to snare users; medium-to high-level dealers who have marijuana on hand
continuously are only slightly more likely to be arrested than the regular user—who also
has marijuana on hand most of the time, although generally, a smaller amount.
The present enforcement methods, not being designed to arrest the dealer, are unlikely
to make a dent in the source of the drug and will only result in feelings of injustice among
users who are arrested, since the seriousness of the crime bears a scant relationship to
detection and arrest. In fact, since the ratio of undetected to detected crimes i

The Marijuana Smokers - Chapter 11
We use California's data because they are the most reliable, complete and detailed. (In
fact, this chapter could not have been written without this excellent set of yearly
statistics.) We are struck at once by the massive increases in the number of arrests in the
past few years—increases which, by all indications, will continue for the foreseeable
future. The increase from 1960 to 1968 was about eight times for the adults and more than
eighteen times for juveniles. The rise did not begin until 1964 or 1965, and in 1965-1966
and 1966-1967 the rises were enormous. In fact, so recent is the expansion of marijuana
arrests that in a book published in 1965, Alfred R. Lindesmith whose data on marijuana
arrests ended in 1962, claimed that on the federal level, "... the number of marihuana
arrests has steadily declined and by 1960 it was close to the vanishing point...."8 In a
table enumerating an admittedly incomplete count of marijuana arrests, federal, state, and
local, for 1954, a grand total of 3,918 in the United States was listed. In 1967, in the
county of Los Angeles alone, there were over four times as many marijuana arrests. In
December 1967, there were almost as many California arrests on marijuana charges in one
month as there were in the entire country for any entire year prior to 1960.
By any criterion, the number of arrests is enormous—except when compared with the
number of users who are not arrested. The official who claims that marijuana use is
generally tolerated and ignored by law enforcement agents does not have the facts. The
claim that only dealers are arrested, too, is patently false. Included in the arrests are users
of every "size." With these massive arrest figures, let us look at how users and sellers get
arrested and what happens to their cases in court. Keep in mind that we are using
California's data because they are the only useable ones available. We assume, however,
that the California situation pertains in some degree (and in general, to an explicit degree)
to what is valid in other states. California differs principally in the size of arrest figures,
and the close acquaintance of its judges-with marijuana arrestees since they see so many
of them. B (To breed SSH you need to start with a) NL5 Male x Haze female. The main trait(s) you are trying to obtain
from the Northern Lights #5 is the short height and, if possible, the trichome gland production. The only
characteristics you seek from the Haze are the high and flavour.
Once you have a stable version of those two, cross a NL#5 x Haze male with a Super Skunk female, thus
making it "Super". The main reason Greenhouse Seed Co. created SSH was because a little while back quite a
few people were upset with the consistency and potency of the NL#5xHaze. So the Greenhouse breeders
crossed it with a Super Skunk to give it more stability and up the ante on potency. Plus, I'm sure they needed
something "new" to enter in the Cup.
The difference between Jack Herer and Super Silver Haze is the NL#5 is the male in the original cross of SSH,
while Haze is the male in Jack's original cross. From what I can recall reading Jack has a tendency to show a bit
of favoritism towards it's tall, lanky Haze father. The SSH leans more towards an Indica growth pattern due to
the NL#5 daddy.-Geronimo Haze is a late sativa from America, widely agreed by experts to be the best pot in the world. Very popular in
the 70's, it nearly became extinct in recent years as growers switched to easier varieties. We managed to
salvage a few viable seeds from the last crop grown in America and we have used them to produce some
remarkable hybrids. Haze is known for an extreme, almost psychedelic spaciness. The fragrance is complex
and deep with a dry flowery perfume over a base of dark leathery animal tones. When used in a hybrid it adds
fascinating notes of depth and complexity to the taste, as well as a unique addition to the high. While not for
everyone, the most jaded connoisseur will often find haze irresistible.The Seed Bank catalog, 1988 4

ly one color. And each thinks he sees the
whole. The questions of agents of social control are puzzled, anxious questions, revealing
the incredulity that anyone would want to partake of such an activity.
"Why?" indicates that the activity requires an explanation; "Why?" can often be
transformed into, "Why would anyone want to do such a thing?"
Sociologists stand in a different spot, and therefore see a different reality. The "why"
takes many problematic questions for
granted. Social scientists usually start with
more basic questions: "What?" "How?" "Under what circumstances?" The "why" question
assumes that many aspects of a phenomenon are already understood and, given these
assumptions, those who ask it cannot conceive of the outcome which they observe. The
sociologist urges us to take a first look at a poorly understood phenomenon—whether it be
the family, the priesthood, or marijuana smoking.
His basic point of departure is the attempt to understand an activity, a belief, an
institution, a way of life, in much the same manner as its participants. Each has its own
peculiar, unique integrity and vibrancy, its own rules and logic. Each makes sense
according to a set of principles often contradicted by, or irrelevant to, other activities,
beliefs, institutions, or ways of life. To fully understand a social phenomenon, it is
necessary to grasp it empathically, accepting it on its own terms and identifying
emotionally with its central principles. Any social analysis missing this dimension is of
limited value; as ethnography, it must be deemed worthless.
To understand is to
condone, so the aphorism has it. In some sense or another, perhaps.
But not to understand is to condemn without knowing why. As Peter Berger wrote, a spy
ignorant of the enemy's strong points helps only the enemy. It is unfortunate that warfare
analogies must be employed to illuminate the American drug scene, but we only reflect a
scene where the battle lines have already been drawn. And whether we are propagandists

What does this do for our much vaunted objectivity? The mature sciences concern
themselves not at all with their objectivity, never thinking of it as an issue; they know a
fact when they see one. Social scientists are more defensive, almost self-righteous in their
assertion of lack of bias. Like so many other issues, however, objectivity is a bugaboo. Of
course, attempting an insider's view of a group or an activity is adopting a biased view.

The plant is now entering its Pre-flowering stage.
Now is the time when you should be hoping for as many
females as possible and that all your work has not been in vain. You
closely look at the new growths (Calyx) to see if you can identify your
plant’s sex, but it is still too early to tell.
The early stages all look the same you say? What should you
do now? You do not know? You will have to wait and see.
There are three things that can reveal your plant’s sex early
on but these are not 100% accurate. They are more of an educated
So remember these methods can fail to be accurate but most of
the time they are a good indicator.
First Early Sexing Method:
If you have been growing the same strain and all the seeds at
the same time, then you may notice that some plants are taller than
others. This is a sign that the smaller Hollands Hope Thc Amount plants are female and the taller
ones are male.
If you want too, you can separate your plants into two sections
in order to see how good your guesswork was when you do finally
identify sex. The other thing to know is that male plants in general
start to pre-flower before females. If you have taller plants that are
producing new growths before the smaller ones, then the taller plants
are probably male.
Second Early Sexing Method.
A good way to identify plant sex at early date is to look at the
calyx with the aid of a very fine magnifying glass. (See last page of
this book for pre-flowering/calyx illustration)
If the calyx is raised on a small short stem then it is probably
a male. If the calyx is not raised on a small short stem then it is
probably a female.
Third Early Sexing Method.
Force-flowering a cutting is probably the best early sexing
method out there. Simply take a cutting from the plant that you want
to sex and place the cutting in a cup of water or into a cloning medium
such as rockwool.
Give the cutting 12 hours light and 12 hours total
darkness. The cutting will flower and display its sex. Clones will carry
the exact same genetic make-up as the plant it came from, including
These methods are NOT 100% accurate but will help you to
understand more about the visible differences between male and
female plants. In a moment we will explain how to identify sex
properly and completely.
THE PRE-FLOWERING TIME
Your plant will Pre-flower between 1 and 2 weeks and during
this period the new growth regions begin to change shape depending
on whether the plant is male or female. It is during this shape change
that you can properly detect your plant's sex.
WHEN TO FLOWER?
Pre-flowering is a sign that your plant is mature enough to
start flowering. As a grower
Shayana Cannabis you have a simple choice to make. Do you
want to flower now? Or do you want to continue vegetative growth?
Here are a few facts before you make that choice.
- Some cannabis plants can be kept alive for up to 10 years by simply
ntly unanswerable, while others, although
ideally subject to empirical demonstration, are so heavily mired in sentiment that no
amount of tugging is going to get them out. Only the naive think that "proof" proceeds in
the manner of the scientific ideal. "Proof" involves gathering information, however
dubious, which suits one's own biases, and suppressing that which threatens them.
Actually, "facts" are instruments designed for the support of one's biases. These facts may
actually be true, but truth is complex and elusive, and even seemingly contradictory facts
may be "true." Anyone who thinks of marijuana use as evil wishes to attribute "evil"
causes to it, as well as "evil" consequences ( especially ).
No one likes violence, crime, heroin addiction, or "psychological dependence," so
marijuana is charged with generating them. Actually, these are all code words. The
allegation that marijuana causes violence is code for "marijuana use is evil." Today's
allegations have, of course, been retranslated into contemporary scientific metaphors,
because religious imagery does not speak with much practical authority today, but their
meaning is identical. Consider the following quotes ( the emphasis is mine ):
... marihuana is addicting in the sense that it is a dangerous intoxicating
So far as I can see, I do not think it is irrational to legally define
marihuana as a "narcotic drug."23
Although cannabism does not lead to an addiction in the classic sense of
morphinism, the subjection to the drug is fairly serious. To a considerable
extent, it decreases the social value of the individual and leads him to
manifest physical and mental decadence. The tendency to an unsocial
conduct of relaxed morals, of listlessness, with an aversion to work or the
inclination to develop psychotic phenomena, is greatly intensified by

In each case, the reader thinks that he understands the distinction being made while, in
fact, the writer is actually making a very different one: a logical sleight of hand, in a
sense. Notice the transition; we think we know what addicting means, and we feel assured
that marijuana is not addicting. But we know that addicting is bad, and such labels are
useful for persuasion purposes. So, marijuana must be labeled addicting, making it bad.
We know that narcotics are bad, and that narcotic refers to an analgesic, a pain-killer. By
defining marijuana as a narcotic, one quality of the narcotic is isolated out (its image in
the popular mind as evil), and its actual pharmacologic property ( pain-killing ), which
marijuana doesn't share, is ignored. Thus, we have narcotic-evil-marijuana.
Although this procedure might seem strange to the logician, the methodologist, the
scientist, it should come as no surprise to the student of primitive tribes. On such
processes major elements of whole civilizations are built. Consider th
