First Harvest of 2012 for Wo/Men's Alliance for Medical Marijuana (WAMM)

On September 9th, a single plant in the Wo/Men's Alliance for Medical Marijuana (WAMM) garden, the first of 2012, was harvested and trimmed. WAMM, established in 1993 and based in Santa Cruz, is well-known and widely-respected for being the first medical marijuana collective in the United States. WAMM founders Valerie Leveroni Corral and Michael Corral helped to craft California's Proposition 215, also known as the Compassionate Use Act of 1996, concerning the use of medical cannabis.

Collective members passed pruning shears as they each took at turn cutting off a branch of ripe buds from the Purple Indica cannabis plant. After all the branches ready for harvest were cut, they were brought inside and immediately trimmed.

Charley, a WAMM member who was recently "fired from hospice for not dieing", trimmed the first buds of the season.
