“Guerrilla planting:” how some pot activists make a statement

The capitol buildings of Vermont are guarded by surveillance cameras and the Capitol Police Department.

On July 4, thousands of people stood on and around the lawns to celebrate Independence Day. The following week, while the legislature was not in session, a tourist alerted an officer that cannabis might be growing in the flowerbeds.

“We absolutely believe they were intentionally planted,” says Matthew Romei, chief of the Capitol Police Department. The state legalized recreational cannabis in 2018, but it still prohibits people from growing the plant in public. Officers expected to find one stray plant, but they dug up more than 30 immature stems.

Canadian and Scottish firms team up to create toxin-free cannabis

As you may already be aware, the medical cannabis that you buy from dispensaries is usually tested for quality assurance before it goes on sale.

As time moves forward, this testing is only becoming more rigorous in the name of our health. CBD Testers has recently reported on how CBD and cannabis products like tainted vape cartridges have landed users in hospital after being contaminated with dangerous ingredients and toxins.
