Illinois: Medical pot farms finally get growing

Multiple marijuana farms have planted crops, and the state is preparing to begin tracking each plant from “seed to sale.”

Five cultivation centers are authorized by the state to begin growing, said Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Kristi Jones.

 

Two downstate operations — Ataraxia, in Albion, and Revolution Cannabis-Delavan, in Delavan — have announced they have begun farming marijuana.

The state, however, won’t say which companies have been allowed to begin cultivating.

It also won’t say how much marijuana has been planted.

Ataraxia said it’s got hundreds of plants going and hopes to have product available by October.

Eustis family nursery seeks marijuana license

USTIS – After 41 years of cultivating lush, indoor tropical plants, the owners of Treadwell Nursery hope to make a dramatic turn to a new crop.

They now want to grow medical marijuana.

Glen and Sharon Treadwell and their three adult daughters appear to be what some lawmakers said they had in mind when they wrote the state's limited medical-marijuana law. The goal was to have old-Florida growers establish the industry.

"My sister Julie likes to say, 'If you'd have asked me if there would be aliens or if mom and dad would have considered growing cannabis, I would have bet on the aliens,'" said Jammie Treadwell of her religiously conservative parents.

How the stock downturn has hit the lives of Chinese investors, not just their wallets

ONG KONG: Farmers turned village community centers into makeshift trading floors. Young workers quit low-paying jobs to play the market full time. Retirees started investment clubs, counseling one another on stock picks.

China fell under the spell of the stock market over the last year, as millions of factory owners, university students, wheat growers and other investors jumped at a chance to strike it rich.

"When we eat breakfast, we think of the stock market. When we sleep, we see flashing red and green screens," said Elizabeth Xu, 37, a customer service supervisor at an electronics company in Shanghai, who invested $2,500 last fall. "This is our new sport."

Marijuana Investing is Ethical Investing

The #1 Reason to Invest in Marijuana Stocks

After my grandfather died, my grandmother’s life was filled with anxiety and stress.

In fact, when he died, the woman I had known as Grandma died, too.

Not literally, of course, but spiritually and emotionally.

She was so overcome with anxiety that her health rapidly deteriorated.      

Make no mistake; few things will wreak havoc on your immune system like stress and anxiety.

Over time, she did concede to getting on anti-anxiety meds, and she regularly saw a psychologist. It helped, but the meds did come with a few side effects that also likely affected her health in a negative way.

Jamaican Growth Forum: Ganja is no silver bullet

Ras Iyah V, president of the Westmoreland Ganja Farmers' Association, says while a well-structured marijuana industry could be a major economic boost to a town like Savanna-la-Mar, ganja alone cannot turn around the fortunes of the town.

"No single industry can solve the problems we have in Savanna-la-Mar, but with an overall agricultural programme, herb is the easiest thing that our people can go into at the moment because we have everything to make this work," the Rastafarian elder said at The Gleaner's Job Creation, Investment and Growth Forum in the Westmoreland capital last week.
