    my wife was just going thru [VEGETABLE] seed catalogues and asking the difference between hybrid and organic, and if it meant GMO. Hybrid is a cross-breeding, GMO is a genetic splicing or addition. The post above nails it, same difference. There is nothing but hybrid at this point. Food crop growers been doing it for thousands of years.

    Now when Monsanto applies their evil technology to pot, then you will have GMO. A hybrid Round-Up resistant drought tolerant weed.
    That's a great idea I'm sure.

    Remember the point of the outrage. These are the same overgrown amoral children that have been trying to run this country into the ground for the last 8 years. This is what " that side" looks like...

    Here's what genetic modification is:
    A genetically modified organism (GMO) is any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques (i.e., a genetically engineered organism). GMOs are used to produce many medications and genetically modified foods and are widely used in scientific research and the production of other goods. The term GMO is very close to the technical legal term, 'living modified organism', defined in the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, which regulates international trade in living GMOs (specifically, "any living organism that possesses a novel combination of genetic material obtained through the use of modern biotechnology").

    A more specifically defined type of GMO is a "transgenic organism." This is an organism whose genetic makeup has been altered by the addition of genetic material from an unrelated organism. This should not be confused with the more general way in which "GMO" is used to classify genetically altered organisms, as typically GMOs are organisms whose genetic makeup has been altered without the addition of genetic material from an unrelated organism.

    The first genetically modified mouse was created in 1974, and the first plant was produced in 1983.[1]

    I have not been able to find any reference to pot genetic code (DNA) being added to, taken away from or modified, which would be required for a plant to be truly "genetically modified". Selective breeding, on the other hand, is a well known and natural process, and has been used by pot seed producers and growers to enhance certain desired attributes, like higher THC. That's what the first article you linked to is talking about.
    bud, i'm not going to get into your so-called semantics with you; the bottom-line is it HAS been genetically modified. I have PhD's working for me in my grow's whom have written their dissertation on this very subject, and have presented and defended in front of the highest academic (and by default commercial) Boards, both domestically and internationally.

    Yes, they have modified DNA through splicing of intergenetics, hence, "Genetically Modified Organism's", by your very own thesis. Much of this is protected by pending patents. For instance, spend a few minutes and explore one of the many labs involved in this, www.ebbu.com

    You're looking for a fight, for reasons unknown. Go back to your Mama's knee, and when you're ready to have an adult debate, shuck off your blinders, your academic illiteracy, and shelve your spewing of a few facts into scientific fiction. There is a TON of amazing work being done right now in MJ/MMJ, and you've chosen one-side, hiding behind a few big words, without understanding your own arguments.

    I tell you what; next time you're in Denver, I will personally escort you to several University-qualified, state-sanctioned laboratories to show you what's going on in cross-breeding genetics. Take me up on my offer, and I guarantee you it will blow your mind. They HAVE altered genetic code, both through cross-breeding and by genetic manipulation (the very essence of YOUR definition). PM me when ready to open your eyes and mind.

    Until then, you are unqualified to speak to this subject, and should remain quiet but observant, before you spread further rumor, lies, and misconceptions.

    unbeknowst to the general public, Monsanto has applied for patents for 100's of cannabis-related "creations". And when I say creations, they are simply trying to lock down, by legal standing, what is already out there.

    I stand corrected.

    Bingo! Give them enough rope and they'll hang themselves.
