Snooze has been released on both #ios and #android
This concludes release 1.0. Going to fix bugs and clean up the codebase before moving on to charts.
We just received 40 more #hygrometer pcbs from the factory. Waiting on the rest of the parts before shipping. We still have some Sensors in stock for your #greenhouse or #garden . You can order one through our website.
I am also updating the new website with #squarespace and will launch that soon.
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is no fan of legalizing marijuana, but he indicated on Wednesday that he supports letting more people grow it for research purposes.
“I think it would be healthy to have some more competition in the supply,” he said, alluding to the fact that all cannabis used for research in the U.S. is grown at a single farm at the University of Mississippi.
Sessions, testifying at an oversight hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, was responding to a question from Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) about press reports that the Department of Justice is stymying efforts by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to grant additional licenses to cultivate cannabis for medical research.
Last year the DEA enacted a new policy intended to license more research cultivation facilities, a move that came on the same day the agency rejected petitions to reschedule marijuana.
Researchers have long argued that it is difficult to access cannabis from the Mississippi farm, which has maintained a monopoly on the legal supply of marijuana since 1968, and that the product is often of low quality.
The DEA has reportedly received at least 25 applications to participate in the new licensing program but has not acted on any of them. According to the Washington Post, that is because top Justice Department officials have stepped in to prevent the agency from acting.
Hatch, who recently introduced legislation to remove roadblocks to studies on marijuana’s medical benefits, told Sessions that he is concerned about the reports that the Justice Department might be impeding expanding research.
Sessions responded that while he agrees it would be “healthy” to add new cultivation facilities, he is concerned about the cost of needed DEA oversight of any new grow sites.

Talking Shop! This Week our featured article comes from our Prospect Park, PA location! Let's learn about T5 Fluorescent Lighting!
This week we are going to look at high-output T5 fluorescent lighting and the best applications of this technology. Undoubtedly, most growers are familiar with fluorescent lights. With the possible exception of millennials, I would even go as far as to say that most growers’ first attempt at gardening indoors involved using some form of fluorescent light – I know mine did! Fluorescent technology has definitely seen its advances over the years, from the antiquated T12 and T8 shop lights your dad used in the garage all the way to the ultra-efficient High-output T5 lamps which have become the premier option for fluorescent grow lights. High-output T5s vary from their T12 and T8 ancestors in a number of different ways. For starters, T5 lamps have a smaller diameter at 5/8” vs. T8 lamps at 1” and T12 lamps at 1 ½” diameter. High-output T5 lamps also boast higher wattages per lamp (54 watts) and generate more PAR and lumens per watt than their predecessors. Manufactures like AgroMax and Hortilux offer T5 lamps in a considerable variety of enhanced spectrums. All of these lamps are designed from the ground up to be more conducive to horticulture as opposed to what T8 technology currently offers, or what the now discontinued T12 may have ever offered. Although T5 Fluorescent technology has taken a bit of a back seat to the likes of HID and LED systems, there are still plenty of applications where T5 lighting really shines. Pun intended.
