Fox News?

15 12 2008

We know one half of the “news” on Fox is made-up and the other half is just too silly to even take serious, but we thought it was necessary to show you this segment of the Bill O’Reilly show. Anyone who has ever been to Amsterdam knows these so-called experts have either never been, are lying or both. Still it is sad that a story as ridiculous as this can be broadcast on American television.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Just some facts to prove that the “naive” ideas the Dutch have, as Margaret Hoover so elegantly puts it, clearly do work.

“The amount of coffeeshops has been on the decline ever since 2000. The amount of 16 to 34 years people that has used cocaine in the last 12 months is about one percent in the Netherlands. Compared with the UK (5.4), Spain (5.2) and the US (3.4) this is very low. The use of cannabis is also low in the Netherlands compared to most other countries. The use of cannabis in Holland is 10 percent, compared to Spain (20), the US (19), France (17) and the UK (16) this number clearly shows the cannabis policy in the Netherlands does work.

It seems that Fox News needs to get it’s facts straight, assuming that they care at all about the facts.

This week we will kick of with a series of marijuana growing guides. Every other day we will have a new post with growing information for you guys (and girls) to enjoy. The goal is to end up with a manual for the breeding of healthy, usable cannabis plants from sprout to harvest. Growing your own weed is fun and absolutely not difficult! In the following posts we will explain in a clear way what you must and must not to do to get the best results out of your seeds. Have Fun!

Growing Cannabis Guide 1/6 – A good start is half the work.

First you will have to figure out where you want to grow your plants. What kind of cannabis strain should you purchase? A good seed shop will offer you the choice between outside growing, inside growing and inside/outside growing.

Every way of growing has it`s own advantage and disadvantage, outdoor cannabis will have to grow and flower for a longer period compared to inside growing cannabis, but the results after harvesting will also be much better. The table below will help you in making your choice.

Factor Inside Outside
Privacy High Low
Harvest results Good Better
Growing time 9-10 weeks 20-25 weeks
When All year Season
Skills More complicated Easy
Costs High investment Low investment
Climate Steady Variable
