From Pot Edibles To Farming Techniques

California released long-awaited rules Thursday that will govern the state’s emerging legal marijuana industry, while potentially opening the way for larger-scale cultivation that some fear could strangle small-farm growers.The thicket of emergency regulations will allow the state to begin issuing temporary licenses for growers, distributors and sellers on Jan. 1, when recreational sales become legal.
They provide a regulatory road map for business operations, from licensing fees to establishing guidelines for testing, growing and distribution of marijuana in what is projected to be a $7-billion economy, the nation’s largest.As for infused munchies, “edible products cannot be shaped like a human, animal, insect, or fruit,” according to a summary of the rules.And if you are thinking about alternative transportation for that pot, don’t: It’s prohibited to use “aircraft, watercraft, drone, rail, human-powered vehicle and unmanned vehicle.”The regulations have been in development for months and in some cases covered familiar ground: At first, the state will issue only temporary licenses to growers and retailers, provided they have a local permit to open for business.Other changes appeared significant.The state has been trying to determine what should be the appropriate size limit on cannabis farms, a debate that has echoed fights over corporate-scale farming in the Midwest.At one time, 4 acres was under consideration, but preliminary information from the state earlier this week indicated a maximum 1-acre cap would be set on most cultivators.But the regulations issued Thursday did not include that language, instead placing limits on only certain medium-sized growers’ licenses. Beyond those, “there is no limitation for the other categories of licenses,” Steve Lyle of the state Department of Food and Agriculture said in an email.Hezekiah Allen, executive director of the California Growers Assn., an industry group, said the rules appeared to allow large businesses to obtain “as many licenses as they could afford,” opening the way for vast cannabis grows that could threaten the viability of small farms, long the backbone of the state industry.California “could have just opened the door for well-capitalized interests ... to really jeopardize the success of the marketplace,” he said.Source: Associated Press (Wire) Published: November 17, 2017Copyright: 2017 The Associated PressCannabisNews  -- Cannabis Archives

Just a Note
I have been looking for news but haven't found anything to post. I haven't forgotten about CNews but I am so busy with the sudden illness and passing of my sister and dealing with her children that I could miss something. Keep sharing links and hopefully we will get more news soon.

another goodie
Here is another goodie. It is 3 hours long though. It is the last of the Mohicans song, but it originated in Scotland. The producers of the movie Last of the Mohicans liked it so much they used in their movie and now it is a Native American thing. Now it makes you think of them. Earth, Sky, Water, Light, Dark all combine into one. James Fenimore Cooper had no idea what he started.

John Tyler. 
It is wonderful, isn't it? The artist I was hearing that day in Dallas was amazing. I first realized he was playing music I recognized when I heard the Sound of Silence and when I started searching You Tube, I was stunned to see all the beautiful recordings. There is one, I think it's one of the videos for Sound of Silence, that has big cats in it. I have a tamed feral black cat that is just like a miniature puma, in his wild ways and his looks. He likes to watch animal videos. He watched all the girls and the tigers, but when the black cat came on he nearly knocked my phone out of my hand when he slapped at it. He loved the music, too.I certainly feel blessed. If it hadn't been for the coincidence of that day, I might never have discovered the ethereal beauty of this music.Yes, I will listen to those selections. I've already watched some of Last of the Mohicans. I'm just totally impressed at these amazing masters of the pan flute. I'm so glad you like it.

Hope, you got me started on this
That guy is great. Thanks for the tip on him. It just goes to show that a good tune transcends culture and language. He also has a great rendition of the Righteous Brothers Unchanged Melody. . Peruvian Native Americans playing blued soul music. Just wonderful.If you have a few minutes, check this guy out. He is at an outdoor mall somewhere in a traditional Native American costume playing the Last of the Mohicans theme song for the movie Last of the Mohicans that can out in the early 1990’s. Totally fantastic. the heck, this is good too.
Collect a bunch of these videos and plug your computer into your big screen TV. Have some friends in, get you head in the right place, some tea and pastries and have a wonderful tea party.

You're very welcome.
Trying to share the blessing.It occurred to me if this piper was the pied piper... I'd be, "Hold up! Wait for me!" I imagine the ancient shepherds using these and mesmerizing nearly everything around them. Such a beautiful sound.

The man mesmerized me ...
with something surely blessed of I feel this in my soul and spirit. And so deeply. Last night I heard it in the background of several television commercials. The experience I had. The sun. The way the hospital is lit and designed. You could hear him on all floors and from some of the offices as well. It was amazing. He did have some sort of microphone but the sound system was beyond amazing. Not too loud. Not to soft. Enveloping, but you could easily hear other things and talk with others and navigate a busy lobby. I'm permeated with it. It is sweet and the meaning of a blessing. I've listened to at least an hour of it every day since and I'm listening to it now. Edgar Muenala that I am, I didn't take the time to find out who I heard and saw, but I can find nothing, except this man who sounds exactly like him and resembles him.

Oh my. Thank you.
If music is truly healing, then that should be amazingly healing. Amazingly so.I had a beautiful experience at the hospital yesterday. They obviously believe in the healing power of music. A pan piper filled the beautiful building with this amazing music for hours. It was amazing. Including this one: The Sound of Silence, Pan flutes, by Edgar Muenala nw totally qualify as a lover of Peruvian Pan Flute. Wow.He stood there and breathed these beautiful sounds for hours. I was so honored, so blessed, to be there, to hear this.I'm totally hooked.I'm filing it under "Signs and Wonders". Transcendental, indeed.

Thank you, my sweet friend.
Yesterday I had a wonderful experience with listening to an extraordinarily talented Peruvian man play the panflute in the mall of the hospital. Everyone there was blessed. He played for hours. He mesmerized me with his beautiful music.Hallelujah on Panflute | Aleluya by Edgar Muenala | (Official Music Video) IS MARIJUANA LEGAL? PERU THE LATEST COUNTRY TO LEGALIZE

I am so thrilled for you! I am so glad. I know this has to be an unbelievable relief! We just got back from Hospice House. My sister went into the hospital on Saturday and she went into Hospice on Tuesday. She has brain cancer and cancer throughout her whole body. Everyone is home or coming home. Her one son arrives tomorrow from the Philippines. She is unconscious now and getting morphine. She never had any pain.

Completely off topic...
But some of my friends here might want to know. Went for my oncology checkup yesterday. Clear! All clear! Seven years clear now. With the kind of cancer I had... TNBC (Triple Negative Breast Cancer, stage 3) it's amazing to be here and with this milestone... I can expect to be here about as long as anyone can expect to be here. Yay! I'm very, very happy about it all. Be happy with me, good friends!
