Jorge Cervantes’ “Indoor Marijuana Horticulture” has sold more than 600,000 copies and launched untold thousands of beautiful victory gardens

​The International Cannabis & Hemp Expo (INTCHE) has announced the first U.S. appearance of internationally renowned, best-selling author Jorge Cervantes. Cervantes is scheduled to speak at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 17th on the main stage of the Expo.
Cervantes is a world-renowned expert on indoor, outdoor, and greenhouse cannabis cultivation. With more than 30 years of cannabis growing knowledge and hands-on experience, his numerous books, articles, photographs and instructional DVDs have been sold worldwide.
In 1983 Cervantes penned Indoor Marijuana Horticulture–a book that became an instant best seller, and quickly became known as “The Bible” among growers.  Now in its fifth edition, the book has sold more than 600,000 copies and has been printed in Dutch, English, French, German, Spanish and Italian and will soon be available in Russian.
Cervantes writes regular columns and feature articles in some 20 cannabis magazines written in 10 languages.

​The International Cannabis & Hemp Expo is coming to Daly City, California’s Cow Palace next month. Organizers say no marijuana will be sold during the expo, planned for April 17 and 18.

“It’s mainly to bring awareness and education to the public” on the medical, recreational and industrial uses of cannabis, according to Bob Katzman, the expo’s chief operations officer.
“We want to enlighten people on the fact that we are looking at an estimated $8 billion-a-year industry in California alone,” Katzman said, reports Neil Gonzales of the San Mateo County Times.

Patients are allowed to bring their own medical marijuana to the Cow Palace, according to organizers, but they will need to show valid documentation before they can enter a “safe, secure” designated outdoor smoking area.
​”It will be an area outside the building and only accessible to people who prove to have a valid prescription [he means a doctor’s recommendation]for medical marijuana use,” Cow Palace CEO Joe Barkett told The Oakland Tribune.

​Good news, folks. Preachers, police and politicians in Illinois must have already solved all the real and important problems troubling the state, because now they seem to have time to go after blunt wraps.
Clergy and cops are backing a plan being pushed in the General Assembly to classify blunt wraps — made of tobacco leaves, and often used to roll marijuana — as “drug paraphernalia,” reports Kristen Mack at WGN-TV.

​Potent fake weed, which has created a stir in other locales and actually is banned in Kansas, landed in Miami earlier this month. So far, only one head shop in town is selling the stuff, reports Tim Elfrink at Miami New Times.

The synthetic marijuana, sold under brand names such as Spice Gold, Black Mamba and K2, is sold as “incense” in smokable mixes labeled “Not For Human Consumption.”
You can get it right on the counter at Laughing Buddha, a smoke shop on Bird Road near Red Road in Miami, Elfrink reports.

Up In Smoke

​The pot flick has practically become a genre unto itself. Stoner movies, expressly designed for enjoyment under herbally enhanced conditions, should have their own aisle at Blockbuster.
While we’re waiting for that to happen, though, let’s take a moment to bask in the euphoric glow of accomplishment. Cannabis cinema has established a track record of success and marketability much like the herb itself.
Given the passionate loyalty potheads feel towards their very favorite stoner movies, I’d have to be ape-shit crazy to put myself in the line of fire, subjecting myself to the ire, the scorn and the second-guessing of my blunted but opinionated brethren.
So if you think I’m high enough to even try that… OK, OK. Good point.
Here are my Top 10.

Smoking and marijuana won’t be allowed at the event.
“There’s not going to be any cannabis — but we’re trying to spread the word,” said Cheryl Shuman, executive director of Beverly Hills NORML 90210, a branch of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
