can you mail weed

Legally-Blunt

Posted by Meital Manzuri, Esq. | Jan 20, 2017 | 7 Comments

As the California legal marijuana marketplace grows, both sellers and consumers are increasingly wondering if it is possible to legally mail marijuana within the United States. The answer is a simple and resounding no. Importantly, this holds true regardless of whether the shipment origin or destination have laws legalizing marijuana. Let’s understand why.

Under the federal Controlled Substances Act, cannabis is a Schedule I drug. Schedule 1 controlled substances are those which, in the opinion of the United States government have a high potential for abuse and no currently accepted medical use.

And when it comes to our country’s mail delivery services, federal law trumps all other laws of the land. As a result, mailing marijuana is illegal across all modes of mail delivery. This includes private carriers such as FedEx and UPS as well as the United States Postal Service (USPS).

Marijuana and the United States Postal Service

Using USPS

Because the USPS is a federal government agency, it must strictly obey federal guidelines. Using the United States Postal Service to mail weed — even within the territorial limits of California (a pot-legal state) — is a felony under 18 U.S. Code 1716.

However, as U.S. postal workers are federal government employees, they need a warrant based on probable cause in order to search a package for drugs. According to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, “first class letters and parcels are protected against search and seizure under the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution, and as such, cannot be opened without a search warrant.”

Since the USPS offers some protection against search and seizure, it can understandably seem to be the safest way to ship marijuana. However, if a package seems suspicious, the USPS can get a search warrant. While this might seem like an acceptable risk, the punishment for mailing drugs through the U.S. mail can include up to a year in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

Using UPS or FedEx to Ship Marijuana

Using Third-Party Carriers

Unlike the USPS, private third-party carriers – such as UPS, FedEx and DHL – are not federal agencies. As such, they do not even have to obtain a warrant to search a suspicious package.

Indeed, the Supreme Court has ruled that giving your package to a third-party “removes any reasonable expectation of privacy.” This means that private carriers have the right to open and inspect any package at their own discretion.

Furthermore, large private carriers have affirmed over and over again their willingness to cooperate with federal law enforcement in cracking down on illegal drug trafficking via mail.

For example, in 2014 FedEx was indicted for conspiracy to distribute controlled substances by transporting illegal painkillers and other prescription drugs. And in 2013, UPS paid $40 million to settle a federal probe into shipping drugs from illegal online pharmacies. Though neither of these cases involved cannabis, it shows how big the incentive is for private carriers such as UPS and FedEx to monitor packages for illegal drugs.

Risks of Shipping Weed by Mail

There risks of mailing marijuana are significant. For one thing, you can be charged under either federal law or the law of the state in which the cannabis shipment originated or the state to which it was delivered. Furthermore, charges will be compounded for interstate trafficking as well as based on the quantity of the marijuana. And under federal guidelines, mailing as little as 50 grams or less of marijuana can land in the federal penitentiary for up to five years.

Worsening matters, USPS and private carriers’ employees are offered a “reward” of up to $50,000 for information leading to convictions of persons mailing illegal substances. Even if you are only the recipient of the package, if you knowingly receive marijuana in the mail, your participation in the shipment is enough for you to be charged with conspiracy to distribute an illegal substance.

In sum, postal services are not drug mules. With the rise in the number of states legalizing marijuana, the DEA is now more than ever keeping a close eye on the shipment of packages across the country.

Yes — it is possible to transport your marijuana via mail. It happens every day and people get away with it. But remember, you’re playing the odds. The best advice we can give our clients is not to use the mail to ship your pot. At the very least, mail no more than 28 grams – California’s limit on recreational marijuana possession – and only within the borders of California.

    CURING: What Causes A “Grassy” Smell?

    I’m wanting to learn what can cause drying flowers to take on a “grass” smell. I grew 3 of these: https://emeraldtriangleseeds.co.uk/pr. mon-haze-auto/ They were planted on May 5th & popped up 6-7 days later. Two out of the three grew much faster & developed faster than the other one. The runt of the 3 seemed to be about 2-3 weeks behind the other two. The runt was the last to show sex, etc. When I harvested, I left the runt to mature another 2-3 weeks.

    I am now in the curing process. The first two that I harvested hung for 5 days to dry. A storm was moving in, so I took them down too early. I have been ventilating the curing jars very aggressively. The runt was able to hang & dry for 7 days.

    The first two plants smell like my front lawn until you crack them open. Once the dried flower is broken up, it smells great, but sitting in the jar, it smells like grass. The runt plant does not smell like grass. It smells real sweet.

    So. Did I harvest the first two plants prematurely, or did I not let them hang & dry long enough?

    Hmmmm . “Grass-Gas” . It’s not very pleasant.
    That is the odor of chlorophyll chemically breaking down.
    Yes, It’s possible you harvested a little early on the first two. Did you check tricomes before cutting?
    I strongly recommend that you use Boveda Humidi-Paks in your curing jars. You can find them here: www.bovedainc.com/
    I also wish you Good luck & good grow . GrassDaddy

    I checked the trichomes the best that I was able with a 30X glass, but was not able to discern any color change. The plants seemed to have plateaued for a couple of weeks & according to the seed description should have been done. I was looking for any signs of cloudiness or amber in the trichomes, but just could not tell. They looked clear as far as I could tell. I let the plants grow longer than the description stated. I also grew 3 White Diesel plants. Same date of planting, harvest & curing. No grass smell.

    The grass smell is not as strong as it once was, but it is there. I’d like to avoid it in the future.

    could be the early harvest, but in my experience w autos, ive dun a few but know somebody who has done several they all have a distinct green grassy flavor to em a fall back of the ruderalis ditchweed gene that makes it an auto. earlier harvest and dry time probably accentuates it. not to mention if all were from seed the phenos could vary from plant to plant. also if 1 of the first 2 were main culprit but both plants are cured in same jar the other might not be so bad

    I had this issue when I first started. Takes practice and patients. You want your buds to be dry going into the curing jars. They will rehydrate so make sure the outsides are crispy. It’s been humid here, the last harvest I hung them in a cool dRk place for 10 days instead of 7 and cured them for 2 weeks.

    Greetings all,
    So. Did I harvest the first two plants prematurely, or did I not let them hang & dry long enough?

    Nobody can answer your question just like that, you do not tell at what day you harvested and nobody knows how plants looked like. Could be that your stuff is not dry enough, hard to guess. Could be that your ventilating caused some damage.

    No matter what happened, just keep buds at 62 RH and cure them for some time. If there is smell inside bud, everything could be OK.

    I grow autos, I love them because they do not smell strongly even in flowering, but of course, some of plants which smelled weaker during growth do not smell impressive in jars later on. After 60 days from harvest, they get ready at last, not before, and smell is divine, totally different as was before.

    I dry some jars now @day 12, they do not smell very nice, more grassy as usual, but I know perfectly that they will start to release very pleasant odour after 45 days from harvest and not before. Like always.

    If you cure properly, you will most probably be very satisfied at the end, but takes some time. 2 months.

    @PNW . If the trichomes you observed weren’t showing a little milky/cloudy, then you did a premature harvest.
    I would suggest you not put too much stock in the copy provided by the seed breeder and seed banks.
    Their veg/flower times should be taken as a rough guide.
    It’s highly doubtful that you would be growing the seeds exactly the same way in precisely the same environment, as the breeder.
    Therefore one cannot always expect the same response/grow patterns as stated in the ads.
    It’s important to remember that each and every plant from seed, is an individual and unique personality, with personal needs and schedules.
    LOL . WE don’t run THEM with clocks and calendars . no, they will tell you their needs in their own time .. if you will only listen.

    I wish you Good luck & good grow . GrassDaddy

    cannabis look alikes

    Don’t Let These Marijuana Lookalikes Send You To Jail!

    Did you hear about the guy in Georgia who said police raided his home after they mistook the okra he was growing for marijuana? Okra doesn’t look like pot to me, but maybe it does to a cop hovering 60 feet above in a helicopter.

    The poor guy thought the police were after his okra plants, but they were actually interested in the plant they really thought was Mary Jane — chaste tree (Vitex agnus-castus). Neither he or the cops knew what it was. This just underscores the importance of knowing your plants, so you don’t get hauled off by Miami Vice. Here are four popular plants often mistaken for weed.

    Pot Imposter #1 — Chaste tree

    Yep, this is what got Mr. Perry into deep doo-doo with those detectives. I sure hope it isn’t a giant marijuana tree, because I took this picture in my front yard. (Hey, you kids, stop stripping the foliage!) Without the flowers, chaste tree does indeed resemble marijuana. The leaves of both are palmately compound with chaste tree’s having 5 to 7 narrow leaflets and Happy Plant’s having 7 to 9. Far from getting you high, chaste tree has the opposite effect, as you might guess from its name. During the Middle Ages, an extract from its seeds was used by monks to decrease libido and remain pure. Maybe they should have just smoked pot.

    Pot Imposter #2 — Texas Star

    Right after I graduated from college, I lived in an apartment complex where an Asian lady maintained a little garden. Every morning, she was out there watering, weeding, and cultivating. I marveled at her dedication until I figured out what she was growing — pot! The leaves looked just like it. What foolhardiness, I thought, considering that a least a half-dozen cops lived in the complex. Why, I’ll be she brought the seeds with her all the way from Vietnam!

    Then the plants bloomed. Huge, star-shaped, scarlet flowers opened up atop the stems. Could this be the infamous “Panama Red?” No, it was a species of native hibiscus related to okra called Texas star (Hibiscus coccineus). I called off the DEA.

    Pot Imposter #3 — Japanese Maple

    seedless marijuana

    What Is Sinsemilla?

    Even if you pretty well-versed in cannabis culture, you might be a little hazy if someone were to ask you “what is sinsemilla?” unexpectedly. Some describe sinsemilla as simply prime, seedless cannabis flowers that have been tended to with the utmost care, while others swear that true sinsemillas are pure strains of extremely potent marijuana that that hail from either Amsterdam or the American Southwest.

    What does Sinsemilla Mean?

    The truth is, the name sinsemilla doesn’t refer to a specific cannabis strain. The term originates from the conjunction of the Spanish words “sin” (which means “without”) and “ semilla ” (which means “seed”) to literally mean “without seeds.” The word has been associated with seedless cannabis flowers since at least the 1970s, with the lack of seeds also spurring a reputation for sinsemilla marijuana as being better, high-quality buds with more intense effects than seed-laced samples of the herb.

    In fact, there is evidence to back up this line of thinking, as female cannabis plants that are denied fertilization produce larger amounts of resins with higher concentrations of marijuana’s active compounds since they don’t use any energy making seeds. Many also think that the best sinsemilla marijuana is properly trimmed, dried, and cured so that in addition to being seedless, the flowers look, smell, and taste great. It shouldn’t surprise us then that a decades-long, nation-wide hunt among cannabis users for sweet sinsemilla flowers continues to this day.

    Is Sensimilla Rare?

    Today sinsemilla isn’t so rare a thing because it’s easier than ever for growers to make sure crops of cannabis are entirely female with controlled greenhouses, hydroponic techniques, and the ability to get female clones or feminized seeds. Having an indoor environment to grow sinsemilla cannabis is ideal, as plants grown outdoors can be inadvertently fertilized by male plants growing unknown to you beyond your garden and it’s easier to administer special care.

    To end, the term “sinsemilla” can be used to describe any female cannabis plants that haven’t been exposed to male plants and fertilized. With this better understanding of what a sinsemilla cannabis plant is, you’ll be able to explain the difference to friends and spot excellent samples on the spot.

    There are numerous thoughts about what sinsemilla really is. Find out the truth about the seedless marijuana plants and sinsemilla in this article.

    Bubblers are interesting and a different way to smoke cannabis. A bubbler falls into the category of a bong but is more intricate and is mostly made of glass. Much like the common bong bubblers feature a mouthpiece, bowl, a stem, and a chamber that holds water for the smoke to travel through. These components cool the smoke and improve your hit in so many ways.

    Some bubblers also contain a percolator, an additional water chamber that further cools the smoke. Some models have carb holes that give you a cleaner and faster clearing of smoke. A bubbler can be viewed as a hybrid between a bong and a pipe. These are smaller but have a similar function as bongs, but the shape is similar to a pipe.

    Why use a bubbler at all?

    You may be a beginner or a pro and decided to choose a bubbler. Why is a bubbler more preferred by users over a pipe or a bong? For one, a bubbler is more portable and can be brought just about anywhere, without causing any commotion. However these could be handled with care most especially because most of these are delicate glass models.

    Pipes are indeed very portable but may not be as handy as a bubbler. These don’t offer smokers the smooth and filtered hit of a good smoke because it is processed within a water chamber and a percolator. Another reason a smoker may choose a bubbler is because of the aesthetic design. This is also a factor that makes users turn to bongs.

    Bubblers are effective by firing up some weed and getting high however some models also look amazing enough to be used as a collector’s item. A bubbler can improve the setting of a smoke which is much easier to do compared to a bong or pipe. Bongs also serve as an eye-catching centerpiece of any table and will be a good conversational piece among friends.

    What are the disadvantages of a bubbler?

    There are good sides of using a bubbler and there are downsides as well. The most important thing is maintenance. Unlike bongs, these cannot be taken apart because of the lack of sections and parts. Many bubblers are simple one whole unit. This makes it very hard to clean and cleaning should never be overlooked as this keeps everything hygienic, operational, and aesthetic.

    Without removable parts many bubblers cannot be modified or improved by simply adding new pieces and taking other unimportant things away. On the other hand, bongs can be easily modified to work with your special preferences.

    The many types of bubblers

    There are a number of bubblers that you can purchase online and from a local shop. For instance hammer bubblers have chambers that have flat bases so you can place these steadily to any flat surface.

    There are also pendant bubblers with very creative designs. These can be thread with a piece of string which lets you wear this around your neck a piece of jewelry and a device that lets you smoke cannabis. This unit is ideal for musical events and for camping trips.

    Double bubblers provide improved and smoother hits. These come with two chambers where you will find individual percolators. The smoke that comes out from the mouthpiece is both cool and well-filtered. Another kind of bubbler, and is part of our list is the Sherlock Bubblers are very similar to Sherlock pipes. These come with amazing shapes, colors and parts.

    Conclusion

    You will surely feel the extreme high when using a bubbler compared to other cannabis smoking equipment. Apart from offering distinct flavors and highs, these are also very decorative and even worthy of being placed in a mantle. Basically the simpler the better, the simpler the design the better you will be able to clean one. So shop well and shop for the best marijuana bubbler online or from a local headshop.

    best vacuum sealer for weed

    Does Vacuum Sealing Cannabis Increase Storage Longevity?

    Sunday August 9, 2020

    W ith the coronavirus pandemic still rampant in every state, your best option for staying safe remains sheltering in place. In order to protect your health and the health of everyone around you, this means going out as little as possible, and that includes trips to your local dispensary. When you do go to the shop, be sure to wear a mask, follow all the posted directions, and if you have the budget, you should stock up on as much weed as possible.

    Of course, once you’ve amassed a stockpile of bud, the next question becomes “How do you store it?”

    Increasing the longevity of your bud is an age-old problem. You want every bowl torched or joint lit to have as fresh a flavor of those terpenes as when you first opened the bag. Even if you can accept a little softening of the taste after a bit, no one wants to smoke old weed. Everyone’s dealt with headaches, cough, or drowsiness you’ll experience as the THC molecule has degraded into CBN, and no one is a fan.

    Storing Cannabis Long-Term

    Airtight and out of sight is a pot smoker’s maxim for storing their weed. So it stands to reason that the less air you expose your weed to, the fresher and more potent it will remain. The terpenes won’t dry out, trichomes will stay on the bud, and it won’t burn as hot. Keeping your cannabis from the air will also reduce the humidity, which can cause weed to mold. Store it in a cool place to prevent the cannabinoids and terpenes from drying out further. You’ll want to keep it below 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

    So, does this work? Is all you need a good jar and a closet or drawer to keep your weed in good condition for the long haul? The answer is yes. As with most things, the fresher, the better, so be sure to put aside some of your purchase to enjoy immediately. However, if you want to keep your cannabis flower in the best condition possible and store it even longer, a vacuum sealer is your best bet.

    Vacuum Sealing Cannabis

    Once your bud is vacuum-sealed, some strains can be stored for up to a year without losing a noticeable amount of their potency. Even better, vacuum sealers are relatively cheap online. A quick search on Google or Amazon will give you plenty of options. You can find a home use one for around $50-$75 and a jar sealer attachment is only $20.

    If you do decide to go with vacuum sealing, jars vs. plastic bags is worth considering. The benefit of plastic bags is their cheapness and ease of storage. If you’re vacuum sealing in a plastic bag, your nugs will get a little compressed and some small pieces may get crunched off. However, the quality will still be exceptional and it’s not like you’re putting them in a showroom. You’re just going to burn them anyway. As long as you keep them out of the light they’ll still be good.

    Considerations for Vacuum Sealed Marijuana

    Plastic bags have some downsides though. If you’re choosing to freeze your weed to keep it an extra-long time, you have to be extra careful when handling the baggie. Frozen trichomes can break off and remain in the bag, instead of going into your body where they belong. Allow your weed to come back up to room temperature before using it. However, there’s a lot of debate whether or not freezing weed has any real advantages for storage. Many cannabis consumers will say that room temperature works just fine for storage and that between 60-65 degrees Fahrenheit is the ideal temperature range.

    A final issue to consider with plastic bags is that plastic can get a very light static charge. This won’t zap you like a metal door handle when you touch the bag, but it’s still strong enough to pull delicate hairs and trichomes off of your weed. This lowers the potency.

    Using a jar adapter to vacuum seal your weed is just as easy as sealing plastic and jars have some big advantages over plastic. They’ll preserve the shape of your nugs, you’ll lose fewer trichomes to crunching and static charge, and they’re more earth-friendly.

    With jars, there is the issue of storage. Since glass doesn’t bend or flat pack, you’re stuck needing more storage space.

    Whether you choose jars or plastic to vacuum seal, the final method to long term weed storage is to use a couple of smaller jars or bags rather than one large container. Every time you open the bag or the jar, you lose terpenes and cannabinoids to the air. By having a couple of smaller containers, you can keep the majority sealed from the air and fresh while you work your way through one. Plus it’s easier to portion out your weed if you’re trying to ration it.

    Of course, you don’t need to vacuum seal your weed. Airtight and out of sight works just fine in the short term, as long as it’s not too hot. But it never hurts, especially if you’re regularly buying in bulk. If a small investment is worth having fresher weed longer, vacuum sealing is the way to go. Especially if you’re buying a lot all at once.

    Have you ever vacuum sealed your cannabis? Share your experiences in the comments below.

    Increasing the longevity of your bud is an age-old problem. You want every bowl torched or joint lit to have as fresh a flavor of those terpenes as when you first opened the bag. Click here to find out some of the best ways to keep your weed fresher and more potent for longer!
