Even though actually possessing and smoking weed is getting easier and easier in these United States of ours, knowledge about weed – horticulture, extraction, even history – isn’t necessarily easy to find in one comprehensive place.
Online forums like ICMag help, but for the most part those who want to get serious about the cannabis business likely still have to teach themselves if they want to know how things like fertilizers, phenotypes, and solvents work.
With current federal laws in place, it’s even difficult for scientists to conduct research on marijuana so that they might know a thing or two about the enchanting plant.
A group of Wikipedia editors feel that, even on the website that has info on everything, knowledge about cannabis is still severely lacking. That’s why they’re launching an organized 420 Collaboration. The effort will be organized around the stoners’ holy day of April 20, but start a little early on April 15 and run until April 30.
As per the project’s site:
“The purpose of the collaboration, which is being organized by WikiProject Cannabis, is to create and improve cannabis-related content at Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects in a variety of fields, including: culture, health, hemp, history, medicine, politics, and religion.
If you are interested in supporting this effort, feel free to add your signature below and contribute to ongoing discussions. There are many ways to help, and all ideas are welcome!”
In addition to expanding existing Wiki links for cannabis information, the project also provides a list of hundreds of red links (links to as-yet non-existent pages). These include such varied topics as Hemp beer, Cannabis eradication, celebrated French poet Charles Baudelaire’s book The Poem of Hashish, Cannabis in Iran, and Cannabis in Burkina Faso.
