Marijuana Seeds New York: The Ins and Outs of Growing From Seed
Times Square, Soho, Greenwich Village, Manhattan, Wall Street, are all famous places and landmarks associated with New York City. But the Empire State is more than just the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty! New York boasts more history, culture, and progress than many states combined, and her diverse geography and climate lend very well to growing what will one day again become the country’s foremost cash crop.
Having gone through rulers of French, Spanish, Dutch, and British origin, by the time of the American Revolution, New York was pretty well established and the rich history of indigenous peoples all but long forgotten. After the Battle of Long Island, the longest and bloodiest battle of the Revolutionary War, the face of New York was changed to suit the more progressive British military and became home to escaped slaves and mercenaries hoping to start a better life with their newfound freedom.
Fast forward a hundred years or so, and New York City was seeing uprisings of street thugs and violent party loyalists fighting for control of the boroughs, as was depicted in Martin Scorcese’s historical opus Gangs of New York. Another few decades would see some major progress along the lines of art, music, politics, and education in the Empire state. New York City is home to the headquarters of the United Nations, the world-famous Broadway Theatre district, and the Tribeca Film Festival. Whereas Times Square was once a magnet for the world’s seediest and was home to masses of opium dens, speakeasies, and red light districts, it is now an entertainment district often associated with progress and prosperity.
New York’s rich art history and culture can be viewed at any number of galleries and museums including, the Guggenheim and the Andy Warhol Museum. Greenwich Village was home to an amazing folk and hippie movement in the ’60s and slam poetry sessions can still be heard echoing throughout the corridors. The entertainment industry also has a super large foothold in New York State. Employing approximately 200,000 people, the film industry is booming all around New York, boasting well over 1000 films, television shows, and independent productions per year. The Bronx, one of the 5 main New York City boroughs is famed as the birthplace of hip-hop. In the South Bronx where the dance culture continues to thrive, the cultural revolution continues promoting and supporting any number of youth hip-hop and dance programs, aimed at improving the quality of life for many inner-city families.
As far as education goes, New York state is no slouch. Columbia University is one of the oldest and most acclaimed schools in the country, famous for its design, business, and IT programs. New York University’s doctoral program houses some of the best and brightest minds in all of the U.S., boasting over 50,000 registered students each year. Though the efficacy of elementary and secondary school systems throughout the state varies greatly, and income and education disparity throughout New York is telltale of a capitalist democracy, New York, in general, has some brains to boast of.
With so much incredible diversity and unique history, it is appalling that New York State is so behind where marijuana regulations are concerned. One would think that, with such an amazing tapestry of art, history, music (and money) that this state would be on top of getting things right. Unfortunately, this is not the case and marijuana regulations throughout the Empire State are still set to cost anyone caught with weed.
