“Take Back the Medicine” fundraising campaign to benefit Medical Marijuana patients by funding our TV show “ Everything Cannabis in E WA.” to premiere early 2017 on CMTV Channel 14 broadcast to over 101K households in Eastern WA.

I have been a graphic and paper artist for as long as I can remember. For 50 years I have been meticulously cutting images from magazines & (yes) books; I have 1000′s of every sort and size.  I also have amassed a huge amount of high-end scrapbook paper and card stock.  I have enough materials, supplies, tools, rubber stamps, everything we need to open a specialty paper workshop making products by hand and donating them to MMJ patients … and parents. Our goal is to raise enough $$ to hire our own lobbyist to represent our interests in Olympia.  Why are politicians and bureaucrats making our medical decisions for us anyway?

More to come.  Check for updates or call Darlene 509.638.5011

Pesticides & Cannabis Consumer Product Safety

A cautionary tale: a cannabis consumer contacted me saying a gram of dab he purchased at 502 recreational pot store in Spokane, WA tasted like “burnt plastic”. He was very curious about what he was ingesting. I suggested he take sample to Trace Analytics for pesticide screening.

The results were shocking. This particular product tested positive for Metalaxyl, a state approved fungicide -however, 200ppb is the “Upper Level of Quantification” (considered acceptable trace amount) but this sample came in at a whopping 94,786ppb! I talked with the grower/processor and they were very cooperative BUT my warning to Medical Marijuana Patients – read the labels, ask about pesticide testing.

No one should be sucking up pesticides or fungicides. Most (good) growers are paying attention and are working to produce safe, clean medical-grade cannabis products.

Consumer Beware!

David Van Scyoc's BlueBerry RIP

My sweet, sweet BlueBerry with David & Bucky 2006 – 2013



By Darlene Brice, Cannabis Consumer Research

Anyone who has ever grown marijuana knows that bugs can kill or damage an entire crop. In a matter of days mold, different types of mites, thrips, fungus gnats, aphids, and other nasty buggers can wreak havoc in the entire garden causing heavy financial loss.

The WA State Liquor & Cannabis Board approved over 200 different pesticides growers can use to keep the bugs at bay. Big problem. Random sampling of cannabis sold in retail stores are testing positive for pesticide residue. Some industry insiders estimate that possibly up to 70% of the pot legally sold in stores have some level of pesticide contamination.

This is becoming a bigger problem as lawsuits flood the courts in WA & CO. No one wants to smoke or ingest pesticides. It is fast approaching a huge disaster for commercial growers when medical marijuana is folded into the WA state recreational system on July 1, 2016.

Casey Connell of Contender Agriculture has the solution.

Adopt a Felon

We are continuing the project activist and master grower David Van Scyoc and we were working on when he died suddenly. He was a felon and we decided that we need to help people caught up in the War on Drugs to get their records expunged of marijuana-related felonies.

Sweet-David-1Mr. Miracle Man “David Van Scycoc” is one of those souls you know you will never cross again. When he passed last year, I could only think of myself. How much I miss him, how much he was teaching me, how many in-siders he introduced me to. Poof!  He was gone and I have mourned him as a Brother. We worked so hard to get to this point. He was a soul I will never cross again. I thought he was handsome and beautiful and kinder than anyone I know.  Good Travels, Dear David.

Ingesting Marijuana Is healthier than ingesting lies!





Keep the Kettle Falls Five Free!!

Update: The Federal trial of the Kettle Falls 5 resulted in a guilty verdict for “manufacture of a controlled substance”. This was expected as the prosecutor had evidence the Kettle Falls 5 were growing marijuana on their own property for medical purposes under WA state Medical Marijuana statutes. The Feds failed to convict them of conspiracy, intent to distribute and weapons charges which have a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years in Federal prison. Not guilty! This is a win for all Americans who find themselves in the Federal justice system for growing plants. Thank you Kettle Falls 5 for making legal precedence.

 Where Will the $$ Go?

” In Washington state, 80% of the taxes that come in from sale of cannabis is earmarked for prevention, treatment, research and evaluation of the implementation of I-502.  Colorado, on the other hand, has targeted the first $40 million in tax revenue for school construction.” Maria L. LaGanga
