The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws or NORML was founded in 1970 with the mission to “move public opinion sufficiently to legalize the responsible use of marijuana by adults, and to serve as an advocate for consumers to assure they have access to high-quality marijuana that is safe, convenient and affordable. Almost 50 years later that mission is on its way to being completed.
More than anything NORML seeks to change opinions about marijuana using facts and common sense to educate people about the use of cannabis, its potential benefits, and hazards, and to debunk myths. Marijuana is the third most popular recreational drug in the USA following alcohol and tobacco products.
The easing of marijuana laws combined with the idea that it was easier to sell seeds than the actual plant and the advances in mail order shipping technologies made 2018 an excellent time for i49 to emerge as a leading cannabis seed bank. i49 offers a wide array of California marijuana seeds for the marijuana hobbyist and those who need cannabis for medicinal purposes.
It is interesting to note that the sale of California marijuana seeds in the USA originated in the late 1700s with the Shaker Seed Company. The Shakers were a religious sect, and some speculate that their name is an abbreviated version of “Shaking Quakers” because of their extremely demonstrative behavior during their worship services. They did not drink or smoke, so they probably would not approve of the offerings of cannabis-based seed companies today.
There have always been religious battles bordering on the hysterical against any behavior that might be considered sinful, and drinking and smoking cannabis are primary targets. The Women’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) with hatchet bearing leaders like Carrie Nation was important figures in the prohibition movement. In 1937, the Marijuana Tax Act was enacted through efforts led by Harry J. Anslinger who was the director of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (forerunner of the DEA) with a racially charged campaign. Cannabis remains illegal in some states today.
Like any fledgling industry, the sale of cannabis products will have its share of fraudulent and misleading sellers looking to make an easy dollar. Online scams are rampant and the danger of meeting a stranger at an unfamiliar location to “score some weed” still exists. An example of an online scam is when the seller asks for the payment upfront, and after getting your money, you get another email from what appears to be the DEA “explaining” how your dealer got busted and that you need to pay more to get a Marijuana Permit License or face arrest.
At i49 the process of ordering and shipping is worry-free with the use of PACSAFE EXCHANGE, a secured cannabis merchant services provider. The packages are delivered inconspicuously with a discreet label. Before they ship, the care of the seeds is of the utmost importance with storage in cool and arid conditions to maximize shelf life.
