Our favorite line:


YEAH, YOU LIKELY MISUSED FEDERAL RESOURCES….just like we’ve yelled for decades now. END PROHIBITION.


Our heart goes out to all of our family members, friends and all beings who have been adversely effected by the misuse of the powers that be. Think of all the patients who needed this medicine, would’ve been cured, found comfort in the worst of times and appetite when going through the thick of it.

So many states have legalized….yet there are many more that need to get with the program. Ahem, Texas. (the place of Ganja Vibe‘s inception)

This fight will continue and if the truth shall set you free, then as GOD as my witness…..We Will Win!

Skeptics take note. To the commercial public,  the freedom fighters in our nation, who are ballsy enough to come out of the underground, are walking on water. We need you to WAKE UP.

Growing marijuana is still by far the most-efficient way to produce THC

Amazing Chemicals Invented by Nature, Rebuilt in Lab

By Aaron Rowe


For some ailments the treatment of choice is medicinal marijuana. But its active ingredient, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is hard to make.

Many researchers have made the psychoactive substance, but their brews were often contaminated with chemicals that are slightly different from THC and don’t have the same properties. Barry Trost and Kalindi Dogra at Stanford University were able to avoid that problem and other pitfalls in building the chemical by using a molybdenum catalyst. They eventually produced the substance successfully.

Their research, funded by Merck and the National Institutes of Health, demonstrated the effectiveness of their catalyst, but growing marijuana is still by far the most-efficient way to produce THC!!!

A sea organ made with Mother Nature herself!

This musical instrument is the first pipe organs that are played by the sea. It is located on the shores of Zadar, Croatia. 35 musically tuned tubes and the movement of the sea are the main players of this incredible thing. The Sea Organ has 70m long with the pipes built under the concrete. The musical pipes are located so that the sea water and wind movements produce musical sounds that are heard by passers by so that it achieves a communication with nature and promotes a unity of architecture and environment. As sea forces and energies are unpredictable in terms of tides and winds, this organ offers never-ending concert of numerous musical variations in which the performer is nature itself.

It is the world’s first musical pipe organs that are played by the sea. Simple and elegant steps, carved in white stone, were built on the quayside. Underneath, there are 35 musically tuned tubes with whistle openings on the sidewalk. The movement of the sea pushes air through, and – depending on the size and velocity of the wave – musical chords are played. The waves create random harmonic sounds.

Each musical organ pipe is blown by a column of air, pushed in turn by a column of wave-moved water, through a plastic tube immersed into the water. The pipes’ musically tuned sounds emanate to the surroundings through apertures in the vertical planes of the uppermost stairs. The 7 successive groups of musical tubes are alternately tuned to two musically cognate chords of the diatonic major scale. The outcome of played tones and/or chords is a function of random time and space distribution of the wave energy to particular organ pipes.

In this part of Croatia the prevailing musical tradition is the spontaneous four-voice male singing, with melodies and chords conforming to the diatonic major scale. The 5 musically tuned pipes of each section are arranged in 1.5 meter spacing. A listener, standing or sitting on a chosen point on the scalinade, should be able to hear 5 to 7 musically tuned pipes play their natural music. Thus, whole five-pipe sections are tuned to one musical chord. The citizens of Zadar are extremely proud of the first natural musical organ driven by the sea waves ever to be constructed. This installation, absolutely unique in the world, was designed to let people enjoy the point where the medieval town of Zadar embraces the Adriatic.

Expert in dalmatian stone carvers and architect, Nikola Basic, created this masterpiece of acoustics and architecture in 2005; recently received the European Prize for Urban Public Space for this project. Many tourists come to listen to this unique aero phone, and enjoy unforgettable sunsets with a view of nearby islands.

Famed director Alfred Hitchcock said that the most beautiful sunset in the world could be seen from precisely this spot on the Zadar quay. That was how he described it after his visit to Zadar, a visit he remembered throughout his life by the meeting of the sinking sun and the sea.

Weed All About It! Linda Runyon, a Wild Chef, Says We Should Veg Out on Crabgrass and Clover
By Dan Chu, Martha K. Babcock

When Linda Runyon talks about lawn food, she definitely doesn’t mean fertilizer. She’s talking weeds. While crabgrass, dandelions and clover are the nemeses of backyard gardeners, Runyon, 52, views them as the very staff of life and adventures in good eating.

An expert on weeds and other wild foods, and a strict vegetarian—”an environmentarian,” she calls herself—Runyon’s mission is to teach people that nutritious edibles are springing up all around us free for the picking. Her sell-published Lawn Food Cook Book offers such delicacies as cattail stem soup, a quiche concocted of dandelions, and a casserole of brown rice and thistle root. With common weeds as the mainstay of one’s diet, Runyon claims, it is entirely possible to reduce the monthly grocery bill to about $30 per person, not counting the time-cost of gathering the pesky produce. Her greatest triumph in transforming weeds into food occurred several years ago. “I fed 200 people off 10 square feet of grass,” Runyon recalls. “I spent 10 or 15 minutes on the lawn every day, and in about three weeks I had enough weeds to rent the town hall at Indian Lake, N.Y., and serve 200 dinners.” Paying just $3 a head, the townspeople were enthusiastic about the event, but Runyon was told she would have to get a restaurant license to do it again.

Giving an example of the wild riches available all around us, Runyon says she gets most of her own protein from just one lowly weed: by dining in clover. “If I don’t eat it raw as salad, I dry the leaves in the oven—bring it to 300 degrees—and later crumble it to powder. It’s the strongest flour there is, so I usually add a little whole wheat flour to dilute the herby taste. Around a campfire we would add some water and cook it on hot rocks to make pancakes.”

Pine nuts, which Runyon calls “the chocolate of wild food,” are her favorite snack. One problem, though, is that a cup contains 816 calories, “so I have to be careful,” concedes the 5’2″ Runyon, “because I gain weight.” But for energy, she advises, “take a couple of pine needles, twist them in the middle and suck out the juice. Pine is loaded with vitamin C—one bough is the equivalent of a couple of crates of oranges. And a large tree theoretically could feed a whole town.” Runyon hastens to add an important caveat for human grazers: Some plants are highly dangerous or potentially fatal. To keep foragers from toxic mistakes, Runyon sells a deck of “Wild Cards” ($10) with photos of the 52 safest common herbs. She’s working on a companion deck of 15 common poisonous plants to avoid, such as mandrake and poison ivy. Plants subjected to weed or insect spray must be strictly avoided, of course, as should plants growing within 100 yards of roadways, because cat exhaust contaminates them with cadmium and lead.

Before chowing down on unfamiliar plants, Runyon strongly recommends that the wild foodstuffs be identified through the use of three separate, reliable field guides. Even after doing that, “I’ll take a small piece, roll it between my fingers, rub the crushed piece on my gum and wait 20 minutes. If it doesn’t get numb, itchy, or burn, I’ll take another little piece of it and make a cup of very weak tea as a toxic test.”

A twice-divorced New Jersey native who is a registered nurse, Runyon first developed an affinity for tasty weeds during childhood summers spent at a 430-acre Adirondack tourist camp owned by her grandparents. In 1972 she chose to return to a life in the wild in upstate New York. For 13 years she homesteaded with her second husband and her youngest child, Todd (her other son, Eric, and her daughter, Kim, remained with their father in New Jersey), in spartan cabins and abandoned logging camps, where the cooking was done outdoors and much of the food was foraged. Out of necessity, Runyon gained a thorough knowledge of edible wild plants, most of them found in all parts of the U.S. The weed lady has written a field guide, and she now lectures extensively on the subject to Boy Scouts and ladies’ garden clubs, among others.

As proof that nature does provide in unexpected ways, Runyon makes 14 varieties of herb vinegar and 18 different wild-food wines. Cattails are good in soup, she says, or can be boiled and eaten like corn on the cob, while the versatile and nutrition-laden lamb’s-quarters leaves make a splendid flour. Even the widely scorned Digitaria sanguinalis—that’s crabgrass—should not be disdained. With its “sweet, mild, oat bran-like flavor,” says Runyon, it’s terrific in cookies. Mrs. Fields, take note.
