Old World Organics’ State Of Jefferson Description

The famed "State of Jefferson" is an area of Northern California and Southern Oregon that has historically been neglected by both state capitals, due to the remoteness of the region, and the distance from Salem and Sacramento. There have been many movements over the years (although unsuccessful) to split off and create their own state.. The State of Jefferson.

Our Old Oregon Trainwreck has been a regional staple for decades now, and it is one of our personal favorites. By combining this line with our ’79 Nor Cal Afghani, we have created a hybrid that truly embodies the spirit of this free thinking culture.

Expect plants of medium height, and insane resin production. The aromas are of old school, skunky funky, Trainwreck, lemony goodness, and the effect is a blissful, psychedelic, laid back state of mind, coupled with a wonderful pain/anxiety killing body stone.

Flowering indoors: 7-8 weeks
Flowering outdoors: Late September @45 north
Yield : High
Mold resistance: High
Indica / Sativa: 50/50 hybrid with slight Indica dominance

Seed-To-Sale Tracking Alone Won't Stop Marijuana 'Leakage'

Barcodes will help the state track marijuana from “seed-to-sale,” but technology alone won’t keep Washington pot in Washington.

Last August Governor Jay Inslee pledged to enact a “disciplined” and “regulated” legal recreational marijuana marketplace.

“We’re not going to allow distribution of this product in a way that has massive leakage outside of the state of Washington,” he said.

With that in mind, Washington’s Liquor Control Board has adopted strict traceability rules for marijuana businesses. The rules say licensees must track marijuana from seed to sale and report much of that information to the state.

This is where a Florida-based company called BioTrackTHC comes in.

“Every single plant inside your production facility will be assigned its own unique, 16-digit, not repeatable bar code number,” says BioTrackTHC’s director of marketing Anthony Stevens. The company was selected by the Liquor Control Board to customize a tracing system that will allow the state to monitor and track any marijuana plant at any time.

BioTrackTHC wouldn’t talk about its work for the state, but the company is already marketing its off-the-shelf tracking software to would-be marijuana licensees in Washington.

“People always ask me ‘so Anthony are you telling me that if an employee steals from me I can find out on this report?’ Well, actually yeah, you definitely could,” says Stevens.

But will it be that simple for the state?

Colorado had grand plans for a seed-to-sale monitoring system of medical marijuana. But an audit earlier this year found that wasn’t happening – largely because of a lack of money to do the oversight.

In Washington, liquor board deputy director Randy Simmons says his agency will get $5 million a year to administer the state’s new marijuana law.

“Fortunately the initiative writers gave us money to actually run the oversight of this business,” he says. That did not happen in Colorado. So I think we’re way ahead of where Colorado was.”

Simmons says the software system will be built to look for red flags. But Alex Cooley with Solstice Co-Op, a medical marijuana provider that already tracks it product from seed-to-sale, says it’s going to take investigators with real expertise to effectively analyze the state.

“The people that they hire to do this inspection and enforcement need to be very intelligent and capable of easily determining if a license holder is being dishonest with them,” says Cooley.

But is all this time, money and effort to prevent leakage really necessary? Washington’s former pot consultant Mark Kleiman of UCLA is skeptical.

“I think the tracking system is not a very a good solution to mostly a non-problem,” he says.

Kleiman predicts the marijuana that leaves Washington’s borders will be the black market variety, not the stuff that’s regulated and taxed.

“I mean everybody’s fixated on whether the legal system leaks and I understand that concern, but I just doubt that’s going to be the major source of exports.”

Randy Simmons at the Liquor Board tends to agree. But he says the state has to play it safe – after all marijuana is still considered a Schedule 1 narcotic by the feds.

“And I think to get the buy-in from Department of Justice that we needed and wanted, traceability system was part of that,” says SImmons.

Even if leakage isn’t a big problem to start, it could be down the road as the black market shrinks and the price of legal pot comes down. Then there might be a financial incentive to let some product slip out the back door.

American Transmission Co.

Helping to keep the lights on, businesses running and communities strong®

Free ATC Grow Smart® seed packs available at local libraries

Nearly 70 libraries in Brown, Dane, Dickinson, Jefferson, Milwaukee and Waukesha counties are giving away free smooth blue aster and butterfly weed seed packets, while supplies last, courtesy of American Transmission Co.’s Grow Smart® program.

ATC’s Grow Smart® program helps property owners and communities identify low-growing, beautiful vegetation that can be planted in and near transmission line rights-of-way. Trees and shrubs can be an unsafe combination when grown within electric transmission system rights-of-way. The program includes extensive community and public outreach and features horticulturist and gardening expert Melinda Myers.

“We generally give away Grow Smart® seed packets at major garden and lawn shows to encourage people to plant low-growing, native plants under transmission lines,” said Greg Levesque, director of corporate communications, policy and strategy. “Many of these events were cancelled due to the pandemic, so we are giving our remaining inventory to public library systems to help improve pollinator habitat in communities where ATC employees live.”

The seed packets are available at these participating libraries, while supplies last.

  • Brown County libraries – Central, East, and Southwest libraries in Green Bay, Kress Family Library in De Pere, Weyers-Hilliard Library in Howard, Ashwaubenon Library, Pulaski Library and Wrightstown Library
  • Dane County libraries – Twenty locations and the Dane County Bookmobile.
    • Madison’s Alicia Ashman, Central, Goodman South, Hawthorne, Lakeview, Meadowridge, Monroe Street, Pinney, and Sequoya libraries
    • DeForest Area Public Library, Fitchburg Public Library, E.D. Locke Public Library in McFarland, Middleton Public Library, Oregon Library, Rosemary Garfoot Public Library in Cross Plains, Stoughton Public Library, Sun Prairie Public Library, Verona Public Library, Waunakee Public Library
    • The Dane County Bookmobile makes weekly stops in Dane, Blue Mounds, Brooklyn, Cottage Grove, Mt. Vernon, Paoli, Roxbury, Waubesha Heights in the town of Dunn, Westport, as well as Maple Bluff, Owl Creek Park and Shorewood Hills in Madison.
    • Milwaukee’s downtown Central Library and the Atkinson, Bay View, Center Street, East, Martin Luther King, Good Hope, Mitchell Street, Tippecanoe, Villard Square, Washington Park and Zablocki branches

    “Adding just a few native prairie plants to community and residential gardens or landscaping can help pollinators,” said Melinda Myers, ATC Grow Smart® spokesperson and gardening expert. “Wildflowers like purple coneflower, butterfly weed, and smooth blue aster add color to yards and provide food for bees, birds and butterflies. Prairie grasses like little bluestem and prairie dropseed can add interest to landscaping, while also providing food and shelter for pollinators.”

    Free garden information for children and adults – ATC and Myers have created several free plant-related resources for both children and adults, including:

      , which includes a journal and three YouTube videos (Bug Hunt, Build a Toad Abode and Create a Pollinator Paradise) video by Melinda Myers of native plants that can be printed out and taken to local garden centers presented by Melinda Myers

      Promoting pollinator habitat – ATC’s own Pollinator Habitat Program encourages planting low-growing, native flowering perennials within the transmission rights-of-way. This type of compatible vegetation can thrive within transmission rights-of-way, making utility corridors ideal for pollinators who benefit from the right-of-way space as a contiguous flight path. Roughly 40% of the more than 10,000 miles of transmission line right-of-way we manage has been identified as suitable pollinator habitat. The four-acre native prairie surrounding ATC’s Pewaukee, Wis., headquarters has been recertified as a native landscape by the Wildlife Habitat Council since 2018.
