First bred in 1992, the name suggests the power packed in its dark, resinous, compact buds that bristle with red hairs and glistening trichomes. AK-47 has a spiced aroma bordering on skunk, with a hint of sandalwood, but tastes sweeter and more floral than the smell would lead one to expect. The AK-47 buzz is immediate and long lasting with an alert but mellow cerebral effect. Lab tests have rated the THC content at over 20 percent, making it a &quot;one hit wonder&quot; for many smokers. This variety can be a little spacey, but is great for playing and listening to music, or other social activities. AK-47 helped put Serious Seeds on the map with a 2nd place finish in the hydroponics competition and a 3rd place in the overall category at the 1995 Cannabis Cup in the Netherlands.</span></p> Five Awesome Video Games For Stoners http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/11/five-awesome-video-games-for-stoners <div style="text-align: center;"> <img alt="5-awesome-video-games-for-stoners" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/5-awesome-video-games-for-stoners.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 281px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></div> <div> Gaming and smoking go hand in hand. There are thousands of video games out there. Every gamer likes something different. Some prefer first person shooter, while others like RPGs, where others will be stuck playing puzzle games for days. With new games coming out every few months, it can be extremely difficult to find a game that you like playing without a little bit of guidance in the subject. Hence this list! If you have a favorite video game that you get sucked in to while smoking, hopefully we at least included one that&rsquo;s close! Now light up a joint and grab your controller.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Borderlands</div> <div> This game gets far too ridiculous! There are thousands of weapons combos, I believe it goes up in to the million combination mark. Since you can combine a fire thrower with poisonous bullets, Borderlands will make your head spin just from the weapons choices alone. If that&rsquo;s not enough for you, you&rsquo;ll love the open world style. Plus, you&rsquo;ll be able to change views from an RPG style to a first person shooter, while simultaneously leveling up your character to a massive weapon wielding monster. Did I neglect to mention the alien killing? The whole point of the game is to complete missions, kill Skags, and avoid getting your dune buggy stolen by bandits&hellip; Don&rsquo;t worry, that comes equipped with a gun too.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Little Big Planet</div> <div> Although somewhat of a cuter game, Little Big Planet requires some serious smoking in order to play. As a tiny little burlap bag person, your goal is to run around, collect bubbles, and free the worlds from tyrants that have started terrorizing the Little Big Planet inhabitants. The game can be two player, including levels that can&rsquo;t usually be beaten unless you have a friend. You get to customize your character with outfits too that include zebra stripes, bunny ears, and tutu skirts. The game also allows you to play on line, joining players from around the world in the hunt to collect bubbles.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Super Smash Brothers BRAWL</div> <div> Nintendo nailed it when it comes to Super Smash Brothers Brawl. The game includes characters from all different Nintendo heavy hitters. Play as Kirby, StarFox, or the Pokemon Trainer (which gives you a pick of Pokemon including Charizard, Ivysaur, and Squirtle) and battle your friends or play through the levels, eventually beating the giant evil entity that&rsquo;s been turning all the characters in to tiny little stone statues. This game gets even more fun when you&rsquo;re sitting around smoking and button mashing, as people tend to forget stats once the bong has been hit so many times.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Skyrim</div> <div> Getting high, playing a video game, and forgetting what year it was has never been easier. Skyrim is from the same people who made Elder Scrolls and will drag you in to a world of dragons and fantasy faster then you exhaling a huge hit in the form of a ten minute coughing bender. The open world allows you to go where ever you want and there are thousands of quests to complete. Some people have invested over 200 hours in to this game, only to find that they&rsquo;re still not close to beating it. If you&rsquo;re looking to get lost in an open world fantasy RPG, Skyrim is what you&rsquo;re looking for.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Halo</div> <div> There&rsquo;s a great deal of these games out now. While sometimes, they&rsquo;re kind of difficult to get in to, the Halo series is a great game to play if you feel like getting high and screaming obscenities at people on line. Killing aliens and zooming around the surface of strange planets is sure to waste some time. The game is multiplayer too, allowing your friends to join in on your sprees as well. Getting stoned and saving some planets never seemed this easy!</div> When you're stoned at work ; ) http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/11/when-youre-stoned-at-work-- <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/stoned-at-work-fun-thcf-osdkljfsdkjl.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="stoned-at-work" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/stoned-at-work-fun-thcf-osdkljfsdkjl.jpg" style="width: 449px; height: 298px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> Bill Introduced To Overturn Ban On VA Physicians Recommending Medical Marijuana http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/11/bill-introduced-to-overturn-ban-on-va-physicians-recommending-medical-marijuana <div> <img alt="mmj-for-veterans" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/medical-marijuana-for-veterans.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 210px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />U.S. House Representatives Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), along with ten bipartisan Congressional cosponsors introduced the &ldquo;Veterans Equal Access Act&rdquo; (VEAA) today, marking a concerted federal effort to allow our country&rsquo;s veterans to become medical marijuana patients in states where it&rsquo;s legal. The VEAA would simply allow Veterans Affairs (VA) physicians to discuss and recommend medical marijuana to their patients, a right enjoyed by physicians outside of the VA system.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &ldquo;Post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury are just as damaging and harmful as any injuries that are visible from the outside,&rdquo; said Blumenauer, the bill&rsquo;s author. &ldquo;Sometimes even more so because of the devastating effect they can have on a veteran&rsquo;s family. We should be allowing these wounded warriors access to the medicine that will help them survive and thrive, including medical marijuana, not treating them like criminals and forcing them into the shadows. It&rsquo;s shameful.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The VEAA is cosponsored by a balanced mix of ten members on each side of the aisle, as well as a range of members from states that have, and still have not, legalized marijuana for medical use: Dina Titus (D-NV), Justin Amash (R-MI), Paul Broun (R-GA), Walter Jones (R-NC), Thomas Massie (R-KY), Sam Farr (D-CA), Jared Polis (D-CO), Beto O&rsquo;Rourke (D-TX), Steve Stockman (R-TX) and Steve Cohen (D-TN).</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> In 2011, the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) issued a directive which said, &ldquo;VHA policy does not administratively prohibit Veterans who participate in State marijuana programs from also participating in VHA substance abuse programs, pain control programs, or other clinical programs where the use of marijuana may be considered inconsistent with treatment goals.&rdquo; However, in addition to giving wide discretion to continue discrimination against veterans, the policy also forbids VA physicians from issuing medical marijuana recommendations to their patients.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> For many veterans, their VA physician is their primary care physician and they have no need to go outside of the VA system for health care. In fact, since more than a million U.S. veterans are at risk of homelessness due to poverty, they don&rsquo;t have the option to pay for private physicians in order to meet their health care needs. As a result, veterans are either denied critical pain medication and other pharmaceuticals because of their medical marijuana use, or they are forced by their VA physicians to go without an important and adjunct therapy.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &ldquo;Millions of Americans suffer from PTSD and chronic pain, but our veterans are even more adversely affected by these conditions, and yet we fail to treat them with the same level of respect,&rdquo; said Mike Liszewski, Government Affairs Director with Americans for Safe Access, the country&rsquo;s leading medical marijuana advocacy group. &ldquo;Veterans must be given the same rights and health care options that we give other Americans, especially where medical marijuana is concerned.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Researchers were granted permission earlier this year to study the effects of medical marijuana on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). However, soon after, the University of Mississippi, the sole supplier of research-grade cannabis in the U.S., said it was unable to provide the requested strains, causing delays in the research. More recently, in June, the study hit another snag after the lead researcher, Dr. Sue Sisley, was abruptly fired by the University of Arizona.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> In March, the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs published a study that found participants who used inhaled marijuana reported an average of 75 percent reduction in PTSD symptoms.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Read more:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.theweedblog.com/bill-overturn-ban-va-physicians-medical-marijuana/" target="_blank">http://www.theweedblog.com/bill-overturn-ban-va-physicians-medical-marijuana/</a></div> Black Domina (Hybrid) http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/11/black-domina-hybrid-1 <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/57730_1420_0.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="black-domina-hybrid" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/57730_1420_0.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 338px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/57730_1420_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="black-domina-hybrid-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/57730_1420_1.jpg" style="width: 400px; height: 400px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1420_5.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="black-domina-hybrid-3" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1420_5.jpg" style="width: 423px; height: 750px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1420_2.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="black-domina-hybrid-5" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1420_2.jpg" style="width: 305px; height: 405px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <strong><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strains/hybrid/black_domina" target="_blank">Black Domina - Hybrid</a></span></span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <span style="color: rgb(125, 125, 125); font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;">Black Domina is a powerful smoke. The resinous buds range from a harsh peppery scent to the dark smell of blackberries. Not intended for the sweet tooth, Black Domina buds taste smoky and spicy, leaving some tokers wondering if the pipe contains hashish along with the weed. It embodies the indica high, with overpowering body effects. This strain is a great buzz for a day off or a nightcap when no serious work lies ahead. This multiple cross is basically the result of stacking four of Sensi&#39;s heaviest selected indicas in one hybrid: the Afghani SA, the Ortega hybrid developed in Canada, and a combination of the Hash Plant and the famed Northern Lights, both of which have origins in the U.S. Pacific Northwest.</span></p> Ten Ways You Can Use Cannabis http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/11/ten-ways-you-can-use-cannabis <p style="text-align: center;"> <img alt="10-ways-you-can-use-cannabis" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/10-ways-you-can-use-cannabis.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 300px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></p> <div> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);">Yes, it&rsquo;s for smoking. That&rsquo;s common knowledge, otherwise you wouldn&rsquo;t be reading this article. But as with most things in the world, the wonderful marijuana plant can be used for many different purposes. It is medical and industrial. With the right funding and some smart people who care about the planet, cannabis could be the most used substance in the world. Not only that but it would save us land and help to produce more oxygen, plus it grows far faster as compared to it&rsquo;s bark covered relative, the tree. So how can you use cannabis other than packing it in to a pipe and smoking it? Here&rsquo;s ten ways that cannabis can be used in order to benefit the people of the world.</span></span></span></div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> <ol> <li style="margin-left: 15px; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);">Medicine; the most common use for the cannabis plant is medicinal. After thousands of years of societies using cannabis in order to treat headaches, broken bones, back aches, nausea, cancer, and many other illnesses, people still have trouble accepting the fact that the earth gave us a cure for most health problems known to man. It&rsquo;s time to wake up, however, and take advantage of such a beautiful asset to the human race.</span></span></span></li> <li style="margin-left: 15px; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);">Clothing; by making clothes out of hemp, we could completely eliminate the need for cotton. The hemp plant can be made in to fiber which in turn can be worn. Wearing organically made clothing would be great, plus hemp has numerous other uses and having fields of such a versatile substance could advance our society greatly.</span></span></span></li> <li style="margin-left: 15px; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);">Fuel; surprisingly, the cannabis plant can be used for fuel. Seeing as how oil is a fossil fuel, there&rsquo;s only so much time left until we run out of it. Once gas is gone, we will no longer be able to fuel our cars. We will be forced to find an alternate source of fuel if we want to stay so mobile. It would be smarter to switch to a biodegradable fuel rather than a fuel that&rsquo;s putting huge holes in the ozone and creating smog clouds the size of Los Angeles.</span></span></span></li> <li style="margin-left: 15px; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);">Fiber; in Colonial times, farmers ingested a lot of potatoes since the crop was so easy to grow. Since there was no such thing as fiber bars back then, the farmers had to ingest high amounts of fiber in order to counteract the not so great effects of constantly eating so much starch. Ingesting cannabis nutritionally helped the farmers with this problem.</span></span></span></li> <li style="margin-left: 15px; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);">Pets; rather than putting a nylon collar on your pet, why not use hemp? With a less chance of containing harmful substances, hemp pet supplies are said to be healthier, more durable, and sustainable. While giving your pets pot to eat isn&rsquo;t such a good idea, your furry companion will be happy to nap on a comfy hemp pet bed!</span></span></span></li> <li style="margin-left: 15px; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);">Hempcrete; concrete is a huge pain and is expensive. It wears under pressure and after a long enough time, it will crack. Not to mention, the substance is extremely heavy, so while it is a great building material, it&rsquo;s cumbersome. Hempcrete, on the other hand, is concrete but made from the hemp plant. It is half as heavy as concrete and will stand up to the elements longer. Hempcrete also assists with containing cool and heat, depending on the time of year, cutting down on heating and electricity bills. Additionally, hempcrete is far better for the environment, considering it&rsquo;s naturally made.</span></span></span></li> <li style="margin-left: 15px; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);">Vitamins; hemp seeds contain high amounts of amino acids, providing a great source of vitamins and nutrients to those that consume them. For those that would like healthier alternatives to taking random pills that may contain poison rather than something helpful, hemp seeds are something that should be kept around. There are even cafes in Europe that offer hemp tea, hemp coffee, and even hemp lager!</span></span></span></li> <li style="margin-left: 15px; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);">Rope; historians have said that early man used hemp rope to fashion bamboo stalks together in order to form rafts. So you could say that people have been using hemp rope for a bit. Stronger than what we currently use today, hemp rope is something that people would benefit from using for a multitude of purposes, including maritime purposes. If you&rsquo;re interested in seeing some history on hemp rope, you can join a maritime museum tour and find out all about it (get stoned first, of course).</span></span></span></li> <li style="margin-left: 15px; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);">Food; instead of using butter or lard or even vegetable oil to cook with, using hemp oil is far healthier for you. Instead of putting anything somewhat harmful, use hemp oil instead. Sometimes, you can even medicate said oil in order to give your food a little added kick. But even if you don&rsquo;t want to psychoactive aspect, cooking with hempseed oil will make your food taste better and help keep that waistline small (hempseed compared to butter is ridiculously healthy, especially &ldquo;butter&rdquo; if you know what I&rsquo;m saying).</span></span></span></li> <li style="margin-left: 15px; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);">Paper; reportedly, Ben Franklin owned a hemp paper mill in his day and it&rsquo;s even been said that the original Declaration of Independence is written on hemp paper! It&rsquo;s hard to believe that this wouldn&rsquo;t be true, as most farmers were required by law to grow hemp back in colonial times. Still, hemp can be made in to paper that doesn&rsquo;t harm nearly as many trees while simultaneously growing faster and healthier for the planet. As to why we&rsquo;re still chopping down forests when this simple plant could be used instead, is a mystery.&nbsp;</span></span></span></li> </ol> </div> Purple Urkle (Indica) Strain http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/11/purple-urkle-indica-strain <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3511_7.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="purple-urkle-weed" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3511_7.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 450px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/57730_3511_0.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="purple-urkle-weed-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/57730_3511_0.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/48622_3511_0.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="purple-urkle-weed-4" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/48622_3511_0.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 100px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" />&nbsp;</a><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3511_5.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="purple-urkle-weed-3" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3511_5.jpg" style="width: 140px; height: 140px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <strong><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strains/indica/purple_urkle" target="_blank">Purple Urkle - Indica</a></span></span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <span style="color: rgb(125, 125, 125); font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;">Purple Urkle comes from Mendo Purps pheno and is native to the notorious green triangle in northern California. It is characterized by unusually long orange hairs covering small, dense, purple nugs when properly grown and harvested. The color is a purple much like that found on quality strains of Lavender, although despite common misconception, the two are not related.</span></p> Stoner Bonuses http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/11/stoner-bonuses <div> <img alt="stoner-bonuses" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/stoner-bonuses-thcfinder-article.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 305px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />People don&rsquo;t really think about the bonuses one gets from being a pothead. Of course, these days there are prime examples of successful stoners. These people manage to go about their entire days smoking weed. Most of their friends and coworkers wouldn&rsquo;t even be able to tell that their colleague of ten years is a mega pothead. But even those who are most successful like to get super baked once they get home. There&rsquo;s not a whole lot better than getting baked at the end of the work day. So what are some of the benefits of being super stoney?</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Let&rsquo;s face it; smoking bud makes living a little bit more bearable. These days, with people struggling constantly to pay their bills, smoking weed eases the stress of every day life. Whether it&rsquo;s a nagging boss or an absent best friend, Mary Jane won&rsquo;t let you down during those tough times. By smoking a bowl, you&rsquo;ll manage to ease all of the stress from your job, your girlfriend, your boyfriend, your car&rsquo;s transmission blowing, bothersome parents, or whatever the cause may be.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Suffering from a case of the Mondays? Probably if you&rsquo;ve had a weekend full of partying. Even if you&rsquo;re not hungover from weekend shenanigans, chances are you&rsquo;re dreading work on Monday. Well there&rsquo;s a cure for that dreaded day of the week. It&rsquo;s called weed. Toking up before you go to your dreaded job (or maybe not dreaded, maybe you just like to be high at work) is sure to make the day more bearable. Starting the day the cannabis way will make things a bit easier for you. And if you are in that fuzzy hangover state of mind, the weed will help clear it up if you pair it with a cup of coffee or juice!</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Even with TV releasing new episodes of shows all the time, you do find yourself watching reruns from time to time. While some of those shows might be watched four or five times, even the best episodes get old after a bit. Smoking a bit (or a lot) of weed before watching reruns will not only make them seem new but they&rsquo;ll be way funnier. Futurama high compared to Futurama sober isn&rsquo;t a fair comparison&hellip; Dr. Zoidberg is funniest when you&rsquo;re baked out of your mind.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Suffering from an upset stomach or perhaps a migraine? Not really feeling taking some Advil or Tums (because we all know that shit tastes like chalk)? Marijuana is an amazing (and quick) remedy for an upset stomach, a headache, or muscle pain after a really brutal day at work. Taking a quick bong rip will take away most pain, not to mention settle your stomach if you feel like you need to throw up. With amazing health properties such as pain relief, marijuana is a great substitute for the less desirable handful of pills.</div> That special snack http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/11/that-special-snack <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/that-special-treat.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="special-snack-time" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/that-special-treat.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 370px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> California Attorney General: Marijuana Legalization Is Inevitable http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/11/california-attorney-general-marijuana-legalization-is-inevitable <div> <img alt="legalization-is-ineveitable" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/attorney-general-says-legalization-is-inevitable.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 158px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />Marijuana legalization in California is long overdue. California had the chance to legalize marijuana during the 2010 Election, however, the initiative failed. Since then, there have been many reasons that marijuana legalization efforts haven&rsquo;t happened in California. The main ones I always point out is that California will be by far the most expensive state to run a successful campaign in, and there are too many competing efforts each election cycle. Unless everyone works together, marijuana legalization will be very hard to achieve in California.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> But despite the reasons that California hasn&rsquo;t legalized yet, many believe that legalization is inevitable. This is a view that is even shared by California Attorney General Kamala Harris. Per Buzz Feed:</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> California Attorney General Kamala Harris, a rising star in the Democratic Party, says she&rsquo;s &ldquo;not opposed&rdquo; to her state legalizing marijuana.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &ldquo;I am not opposed to the legalization of marijuana. I&rsquo;m the top cop, and so I have to look at it from a law enforcement perspective and a public safety perspective,&rdquo; Harris told BuzzFeed News in an interview in Washington, D.C. &ldquo;I think we are fortunate to have Colorado and Washington be in front of us on this and figuring out the details of what it looks like when it&rsquo;s legalized.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &ldquo;We&rsquo;re watching it happen right before our eyes in Colorado and Washington. I don&rsquo;t think it&rsquo;s gonna take too long to figure this out,&rdquo; Harris said. &ldquo;I think there&rsquo;s a certain inevitability about it.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> I really, really hope that California legalizes marijuana during the 2016 Election, or even better, during the next legislative session. If the California Legislature legalized marijuana, it would save a ton of money, time, and effort for the reform community, and would give California&rsquo;s Legislature influence over the process. Until California legalizes marijuana, it will always be seen as a &lsquo;top prize&rsquo; for marijuana activists.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.theweedblog.com/california-attorney-general-marijuana-legalization-is-inevitable/" target="_blank">http://www.theweedblog.com/california-attorney-general-marijuana-legalization-is-inevitable/</a></div> Pineapple Express - Hybrid http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/11/pineapple-express-hybrid-2 <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3205_2.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="pineapple-express-weed" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3205_2.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 338px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3205_11.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="pineapple-express-weed-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3205_11.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 504px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3205_3.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="pineapple-express-weed-3" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3205_3.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 253px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3205_5.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="pineapple-express-weed-5" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3205_5.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 450px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <strong><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strains/hybrid/pineapple_express" target="_blank">Pineapple Express - Hybrid</a></span></span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <span style="color: rgb(125, 125, 125); font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;">Descendant of Californias Pineapple, this strain is so good it has a movie named after it.

But for those who still live at home or need to keep their green usage on the down low, there are some clever places to stuff your stash. Even if you don&rsquo;t need to hide your weed at home, traveling with bud can prove to be stressful and any one of these methods will prove to be an efficient way to transport your bud and keep it hidden from the cops, in case you get pulled over for some silly reason like a light out or perhaps you didn&rsquo;t completely stop at a stop sign. Regardless of hiding your bud from cops, parents, bothersome roommates, or fellow stoners who steal your stash, at least one of these methods should work for you.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Coffee</div> <div> If you&rsquo;ve ever ventured in to a candle store where scented candles are sold, you&rsquo;ll notice that most of them contain a little jar of coffee beans nestled among the candles. The coffee beans clear your head of the numerous scents of the candles and allow you to sample more smells without giving yourself too much of a headache. If you bag up your weed (bag it up well, for real, or perhaps stick it in a small jar) and place it inside of a jug of coffee like Maxwell House, people won&rsquo;t be able to smell your weed or find it. Just make sure that no one else is drinking the coffee.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Boots</div> <div> People always ask why I wear combat boots with high socks a lot. It&rsquo;s true, I wear combat boots every single day. One reason is that they&rsquo;re just dope boots. Doc Martin doesn&rsquo;t mess around. Another reason is that they are a great spot to tuck weed in to if you&rsquo;re going to be transporting it for a short time. No one should be getting close enough to your feet to smell weed and the boots will keep it safe from outside assailants. Not to mention that boots always make a great fashion statement for both males and females.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Car Stash Spots</div> <div> If you&rsquo;ve ever messed around with a car in your spare time, you&rsquo;ll probably know that most vehicles are equipped with odd little pieces that pop out, revealing ample space behind the piece. Cars such as the Volkswagen contain many pieces like this, especially in the dashboard. From dummy lights to places to stick switches, these stash spots are great for a quick trip with your bud.&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Your Hair</div> <div> Long hair is a perfect hiding spot for cannabis. Seal it up tightly in a baggy, whether you&rsquo;re a male or female, and tuck it in there somewhere. For girls, a messy bun is a good place to stick weed for a while. For a guy with longer hair (Or dreads!), pretty much do the same thing. Just be aware that you may end up leaving a trail of skunk smell wherever you go. Hopefully your shampoo can overpower the smell of that bag of dank you have nestled in your locks!</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Pet Food</div> <div> Being a pet parent, I know that their food legitimately smells like shit. So if you need a place to hide your weed and you have a cat or dog, putting your buds in a tightly wrapped package and hiding it at the bottom of the pet food bag will surely keep it hidden. And if anyone finds it, say you bought the cat some catnip. Just make sure you don&rsquo;t actually smoke said catnip if you really did buy a bag of it.</div> Master Kush (Hybrid) http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/11/master-kush-hybrid-2 <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3577_2.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="master-kush-hybrid-weed" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3577_2.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 338px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/48700_3577_0.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="master-kush-weed-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/48700_3577_0.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 93px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/47123_3577_0.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="master-kush-weed-4" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/47123_3577_0.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 112px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" />&nbsp;</a><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3577_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="master-kush-weed-4" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3577_1.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 100px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <strong><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strains/hybrid/master_kush" target="_blank">Master Kush - Hybrid</a></span></span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <span style="color: rgb(125, 125, 125); font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;">Extracted courageously from Afghanistan&#39;s Hindu Kush region, the Master Kush strain of marijuana is a variety that stays compact and is forgiving to the inexperienced marijuana gardener.

Now, a new study in mice has found that when combined with radiation treatment, cannabis can effectively shrink one of the most aggressive types of brain tumors.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> In a paper published Friday in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapies, a team of researchers from St. George&#39;s University of London outlined the &quot;dramatic reductions&quot; they observed in high-grade glioma masses, a deadly form of brain cancer, when treated with a combination of radiation and two different marijuana compounds, also known as cannabinoids. In many cases, those tumors shrunk to as low as one-tenth the sizes of those in the control group.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &quot;We&#39;ve shown that cannabinoids could play a role in treating one of the most aggressive cancers in adults,&quot; Dr. Wai Liu, one of the study&#39;s lead authors, wrote in an op-ed earlier this week. &quot;The results are promising...it could provide a way of breaking through glioma and saving more lives.&quot;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> In an email to The Huffington Post, Liu pointed out that while research surrounding marijuana&#39;s cancer-fighting properties is nothing new, his team is the first to document its effect on the disease when used alongside radiation. &quot;The results showed that the final effect was superior to the sum of the parts,&quot; he said. &quot;Hopefully, these results will support calls for formal trials in humans to test these combinations.&quot;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Liu and his colleagues examined mice that had been infected with glioma and subsequently treated with radiation alone or in combination with varying levels of two cannabis compounds: THC, the psychoactive compound associated with the &quot;high&quot; sensation, and CBD, which doesn&#39;t produce psychoactive side effects.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> They found that the tumors were best treated by low doses of both THC and CBD that, when used in concert, made the tumors more receptive to radiation treatment. &quot;Our data suggests a &#39;triple threat&#39; approach using all three may be of value,&quot; Liu told HuffPost.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The researchers also found that together, the low doses of THC and CBD produced a similar effect to a large dose of either compound, which is noteworthy because it indicates that patients may ultimately experience fewer side effects.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> THC and CBD are just two of the dozens of chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. While research surrounding the therapeutic effects of these compounds has been limited, a team of scientists from the U.K. last year found that a combination of six different purified cannabinoids can kill the cancerous cells found in individuals with leukemia.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Meanwhile, when used alone as a form of treatment, THC has been shown to reduce the size of other cancerous tumors and stop the spread of HIV, and CBD strains of marijuana have had a profound effect on children and adults who suffer from debilitating seizure disorders.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Despite these findings, marijuana is still classified as a Schedule I drug in the United States, meaning the federal government believes it has no medicinal value. The federally-funded National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) grows a limited supply of marijuana in Mississippi, which is used for government sanctioned research. While critics have long accused NIDA of only funding experiments that examine the substance&#39;s negative effects, the agency has conducted a handful of studies that look at its potential benefits.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Read more:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/11/18/marijuana-brain-cancer_n_6181060.html" target="_blank">http://www.huffingtonpost.com</a></div> Ready for the Holidays? http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/11/ready-for-the-holidays <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/happyholidaysmerryxmas-holiday-blunts-n-joints-holiday-bjs.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="holiday-time" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/happyholidaysmerryxmas-holiday-blunts-n-joints-holiday-bjs.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 338px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> Oxford Dictionaries Word Of The Year Is "Vape" http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/11/oxford-dictionaries-word-of-the-year-is-vape <div> <img alt="vape-is-the-word-of-the-year" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/vape-is-the-word-of-the-year.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 175px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />Vape pens are very popular right now, both inside and outside of the marijuana world. Everywhere I go I see people puffing on vape pens. I always wonder how many people are using vape pens for tobacco, or how many are like me and are using vape pens for dabs? Either way, the fact remains that they are everywhere and more and more people are using them for one reason or another. The word &lsquo;vape&rsquo; is so popular that Oxford Dictionaries named vape &lsquo;word of the year.&rsquo; Per Oxford Dictionaries:</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> As e-cigarettes (or e-cigs) have become much more common, so vape has grown significantly in popularity. You are thirty times more likely to come across the word vape than you were two years ago, and usage has more than doubled in the past year.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Usage of vape peaked in April 2014 &ndash; as the graph below indicates &ndash; around the time that the UK&rsquo;s first &lsquo;vape caf&eacute;&rsquo; (The Vape Lab in Shoreditch, London) opened its doors, and protests were held in response to New York City banning indoor vaping. In the same month, the issue of vaping was debated by The Washington Post, the BBC, and the British newspaper The Telegraph, amongst others.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> vape graph oxford dictionaries</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Do you own a vape pen? If so, what brand? My favorite vape pen I&rsquo;ve ever tried is the &nbsp;iTaste VV 3.0 combined with The Aquamizer attachment. Just to be clear, I&rsquo;ve never received even one dollar from the company that makes them, although, I did get a free pen :) They just hit so much smoother and plentiful compared to other vape pens I&rsquo;ve tried. It&rsquo;s literally the only consumption device I use these days. Other vape pens require a lot of lung power for not that much payout it seems like.

Privateer also owns Tilray, a 60,000-square-foot property on Vancouver Island, British Columbia that ranks as the world&#39;s largest marijuana grow farm.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Although the blend won&#39;t hit the States where pot is legal &ndash; which now includes Alaska and Oregon &ndash; until late-2015, Marley is now positioned to become the face of a movement to legalize weed not just in America but worldwide. &quot;Bob Marley started to push for legalization more than 50 years ago.

Every day, we are bombarded with advertisements. We sit and watch television and go to the movies with our friends. Movies, shows, commercials, photos. We see it all, every day. Over the last few years, if you&rsquo;ve been paying attention, more and more TV shows and movies have begun to transform the pot smokers from the stupid, silly stoners to the people who are &ldquo;cool&rdquo;, &ldquo;hip&rdquo;, or just downright smart. From cartoons like Futurama to horror flicks like the Cabin in the Woods, marijuana is slowly taking over the media industry one character at a time.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Take for example, the TV show Weeds. Nancy Botwin was a widow that started selling weed in order to help keep her family afloat after her husband died. Her plight seemed to really grab an audience and the show managed to get through numerous seasons before kind of faltering and becoming more about gun running, cocaine smuggling, and Nancy&rsquo;s inability to control her crazy offspring. Not to mention a bummer of a last episode that was so corny, it made cotton candy look sour. But the point is, Weeds was a long running, highly rated show that people loved&hellip; And it&rsquo;s center piece was cannabis.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Cartoons especially seem to focus on the use of cannabis, probably because the writers involved acknowledge the fact that most of their viewers are stoned. Cartoons like Rick and Morty, Futurama, Family Guy, American Dad, the Simpsons, and many more feature weed in at least one episode, with some cartoons making constant references to it throughout seasons. It remains a question, however, if this explosion of positive weed related humor is due to the growing public support of the plant (since TV stations want to play what we want to see so we&rsquo;ll watch it) or if those 420 friendly depictions are liberalizing attitudes about cannabis legalization.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Oddly enough, the General Social Survey (GSS) found some light to shed on this question. The GSS asks about TV consumption by consumers and marijuana legalization in it&rsquo;s biennial academic surveys. Over the last decade, after accounting other variables, support for cannabis legalization has increased almost 20% points among those who watch at least 4 hours of TV a day, which turns out to be 1/3 of the US population. Meanwhile, opinions among those who don&rsquo;t watch as much TV seemed to stay the same.&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> With the results not being 100% definitive, it&rsquo;s still somewhat difficult to say if TV is responsible for the growing support of cannabis. Some Americans could have changed their viewing habits because they don&rsquo;t approve of prime time&rsquo;s portrayal of weed or some depictions could have change to reflect who was watching the most TV. Of course, the most likely scenario is that TV normalizing cannabis use is helping to change the public&rsquo;s opinion of the plant overall.&nbsp;</div>
