ered the marijuana cigarettes she smokes by a man, and if she buys, she
usually buys it from a man. A majority of women have never sold marijuana (69 percent),
while a majority of men (55 percent) have.

Women 41 37 25 14 18 12 8 6
One of the more striking differences in the entire study had to do with the number of
people whom the respondent had turned on. A quarter of the men (26 percent) said that
they had introduced ten or more people to marijuana for the first time, while only a tiny
percentage of the women boasted of this degree of proselytization (3 percent). In part, all
of these differences reflect general nondrug and nondeviant differences in gender. The
man, after all, buys alcoholic drinks for his female companion, and he is more likely to
introduce her to alcohol for the first time than she is to introduce him. These parallels
should not be pushed too far, but the use of marijuana, as well as the hallucinogenic drugs,
is a decidedly masculine activity. The male can be seen as somewhat "marijuanogenic"; he
is more likely than the female to use the drug, to "progress" to other, more powerful,
drugs, to buy and sell drugs, and to persuade others to use marijuana. It is from the male
that use spreads. So much is this the case that I would speculate that in milieu in which
drug use is high, as in colleges and universities, the women who interact most frequently
and intimately with males are most likely to at least have tried marijuana, while the
women who are least active and most isolated socially are the most likely to be "drug
The marijuana user is more likely to live in or near an urban environment than is true of
the population at large. Large cities remain the centers of use; in rural areas, marijuana
smoking is relatively rare. To be more precise, the larger the urban center, the greater the
percentage of its inhabitants who will have smoked pot; the smaller the community, the
lower is this likelihood. One of the few exceptions would be in colleges and universities
located in rural or small-town areas, but this only confirms our point, since (1) students in

these colleges who do smoke are far more likely to come from an urban area; (2) it is
generally from the more urban-originated students that use spreads; and (3) in the more
urban-located college, the greater the likelihood of use is anyway.
A very rough measure of the gross relative amount of use of various geographical areas
may be gleaned from official arrest figures (though there is not space here for a critique of
official crime data) and they confirm our impression. We would, of course, expect more
marijuana arrests in urban areas, simply because of their larger numbers, but e
dle of the pack or turn the plant around. It only
takes a day or two for the plant to bend back straight again. If your
plants can not be moved, such as in the case of hydroponics in
conjunction with a ScrOG grow, then you may have to tie your plants
up so that they do not bend.
Figure 11.1 - Here is an example of some tied up buds.
If you are outdoors and you have a massive problem with this
then you may have to cut away some surrounding foliage to allow
more light to get in at your plants. If you can not do this then try to use
a small stake and thread, such as bamboo, to keep your plant upright.
Remember that if your plants are bending then they are trying to tell
you something. They need more direct light!
Many a marijuana cultivator have taken a pair of clippers to
the top of their plant just above the last branch formation during the
3rd or 4th week of vegetative growth. The top is removed by shearing
it away at the stem. This can also be done during the thinning stages.
What happens next is that the main stem may split off in two or more
directions. This creates a V shape at the top of your plant. The end
results after flowering are two or more top colas instead of one. Now,
many a cannabis grower will tell you that this is a great thing to do
and sometimes it is. Two top colas instead of one does sound appealing
but alas it must be said that this TOPPING method of pruning does not
always work out the way you think it will.
Figure 11.2 - The results of Pruning by Chrisesq.
Figure 11.3 - Single cola picture by anonymous.
Figure 11.4 - This is a good example of what a young topped plant
looks like. As you can see the main stem has been clipped to produce 2
new stems. Picture by Strawdog.
Sometimes the plant will produce two small top colas instead
of two big ones. This really depends on the strain and the
environment. Many a grower have managed to bring a plant into
growing more than six top colas by this method. Each strain will have
a threshold for bud production, which can not be improved on. Some
plants when grown fully without pruning do not reach their threshold.
The strain Blueberry is a good example of this. If you grow blueberry
without topping you will not achieve maximum bud production from
that plant, but if you do top the blueberry you will. Other strains are
not so flexible and by topping you will not increase bud production.
The two top colas will simply be sharing the same volume of bud that
a single cola would have produced on the same strain. So pruning for
production is strain related and grow related. You need to find a strain
that responds well to topping.
It is advised that you experiment with this pruning method.
Do this with 2 out of 10 females with every grow you do. You will find
in time that during this vegetative prune you will be able to shape your
plant. Plants are generally pruned 3 - 4 weeks into their vegetative
cycle but can be
