Welcome to our December update. It's designed to give you a bit more insight into what's been going on at 420 Magazine over the last few weeks.

Another busy month has been spent by our worldwide teams of Moderators and Spambot Patrollers. Keeping 420 Magazine free from drama, negative energy and spam is their continued and never-ending purpose, in order to maintain a clean and positive environment where growers, activists, caregivers and patients can all find help, support and information. We are most fortunate in having a mature and sophisticated membership, a great many of whom are genuine experts in various cannabis related fields. We thank you all for being part of Our Mission.

Thanks to those members too who report spambots, spam and other infractions. You are a great help to our busy team. To help both you and ourselves, there's a new 420 Guidelines FAQ. So whether you're a new or experienced spambot spotter, please check it out - Questions & Answers - How To Deal With Spambots. One key point we'd like to highlight is that you only need to report a single spambot once, however many posts it has made. Multiple reports of individual posts by the same bot actually end up adding to our workload. Thanks for your help and understanding.

If you are a fresh face here, please do take a moment and read our Posting Guidelines. They are there to help and protect you and to keep 420 Magazine full of the spirit of knowledge-sharing, friendship and good vibes that we all work so hard to preserve.

We always say that we wouldn't be here without our Sponsors. However it's equally true that 420 Magazine wouldn't be such a great mission without you, our members. We are always grateful for your presence, contributions & positive energy.

New Staff
We are delighted to welcome Amadeus Forzin aka Mr Am4zin to our Moderating team. Amadeus's positive energy and passion for helping others caught our attention and we just had to have him on the team. His first task will be to get us caught up on moving completed and abandoned grow journals.

Brother Amadeus, we are truly grateful for your help in our mission to create Cannabis awareness to the world, so that we may end these laws and get all of our brothers and sisters out of jail.

New Product Reviews
Last month we welcomed two new Product Reviewers to our staff, Ian Bastage and Rich Farmer. They have been busy over the past few weeks.

Rich has had a good time testing and reviewing The IONIX Vaporizer Triple Punch! from our sponsor, Vapor Store. You will find his considered review and links to buy here:

Ian has had his head in books all month. There are two really interesting book reviews he's written. Here they are:
Cannabis For Seniors – A 420 Magazine Review By Ian Bastage
Marijuana Horticulture Fundamentals - A 420 Magazine Review By Ian Bastage

And there are more reviews on the way. Watch out for them over the next couple of weeks.

We are truly grateful to our Brothers Ian and Rich.

Tech Updates
We continue to work on a daily basis with our platform supplier, eradicating occasional bugs in our app. Each bug is being actively addressed and a new app updated is expected soon. We're sorry if you are one who is experiencing any glitches, and we thank you for your patience.
