Others see negative impacts of legalization, believing that cannabis is harmful and prohibition only keeps citizens safe. But more and more, the consensus is moving toward the former with a new poll suggesting 93% of voters support medical marijuana and 59% support full legalization.

Now a record 60% of the United States’ population live in a state that has legalized in some form.

The temperature of a cultivation room plays a large role in determining how plants grow and the quality of the final yield. For this reason, it is important to have a reliable climate control system and frequently check the temperature of each cultivation room.
