It argued that marijuana should remain illegal because of public health problems &ldquo;associated&rdquo; (always a slippery word) with increased marijuana use.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Careful readers will immediately see the White House statement for what it is: A pro forma response to a perceived public relations crisis, not a full-fledged review of all the scientific evidence, pro and con. The White House is actually required by law to oppose all efforts to legalize a banned drug.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Besides, it is hypocritical for the White House, whose chefs brew beer for the president, to oppose legalizing marijuana, which poses far less risk to consumers and society than does alcohol. Two recipes for the White House brew are posted on its website under the headline &ldquo;Ale to the Chief.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The White House lumped its public health argument under four main headings. Before addressing them individually, we should note that there was an enormous upsurge in marijuana use in the 1970s. So far as we know, no one has claimed that it produced calamitous health or societal harm in subsequent decades. The main metric that soared was arrests for possession of marijuana.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Here are our responses to the four main public health contentions made by the White House.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The first &mdash; that marijuana use affects the developing brain &mdash; is a concern for all parents of teenagers. That&rsquo;s why we recommended regulations to keep marijuana out of the hands of young people. The White House cites a study by Australian researchers, published in 2012 in the journal Brain, which found that heavy cannabis use starting while young impairs connections between nerve fibers in the adult brain. It also cites a study which purports to show that heavy use by teenagers can lead to a big decline in intelligence in adult years. That study has been criticized as flawed by a Norwegian researcher who believes that socio-economic factors explain most of the apparent loss of IQ and that the true effect of marijuana could be zero. And remember: no responsible advocate of legalization is urging that marijuana be made available to teenagers.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Read more:&nbsp;<a href="http://takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/07/31/the-white-house-tries-fails-to-explain-why-marijuana-should-remain-illegal/?_php=true&amp;_type=blogs&amp;_r=0" target="_blank">http://takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com/</a></div> Kryptonite OG - Indica http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/kryptonite-og-indica-1 <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/kryptonite-gw-krpytonite-cannabis_weed_thcfinder_thcf-00191.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="kryptonite-og-indica" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/kryptonite-gw-krpytonite-cannabis_weed_thcfinder_thcf-00191.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/3_3700_2.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="kryptonite-og-1" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3700_2.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3700_0.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="kryptonite-og-3" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3700_0.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 226px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" />&nbsp;</a><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3700_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="kryptonite-og-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3700_1.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; 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/kryptonite_og" target="_blank">Kryptonite OG - Indica</a></span></span></strong></p> University Of Arizona Won't Give Marijuana Researcher Her Job Back http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/university-of-arizona-wont-give-marijuana-researcher-her-job-back <div> <img alt="az-wont-give-mj-researcher-her-job-back" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/arizona-wont-give-mj-dr-her-job-back-for-research.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 158px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />Dr. Sue Sisley was supposed to lead a research project at the University of Arizona that explored how medical marijuana affects PTSD. Unfortunately for Dr. Sisley, and those who would have benefitted from her research, the University of Arizona terminated her employment prior to the start of the research project. Dr. Sisley appealed her termination, and this week the University of Arizona denied her appeal.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The private funders of the research project have stated that if she didn&rsquo;t get her job back, that they would pull funding for the project and send their money to a different university. There was a lot of backlash after Dr. Sisley&rsquo;s termination, and I expect there to be even more now that her appeal was denied. Military veterans are leading the outcry. Per NBC News:</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Some of Sisley&rsquo;s supporters argue her dismissal embodies barriers that have long blocked marijuana from the medical mainstream. Those obstacles include, her backers say, a federal &ldquo;monopoly&rdquo; that chooses which scientists can investigate cannabis &mdash; and controls the price for exam-grade pot.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Sisley&rsquo;s loudest fans are veterans who see hope in her planned study. They include Ricardo Pereyda, an Arizona alumnus diagnosed with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder after serving in Iraq. His online petition, dubbing Sisley&rsquo;s firing &ldquo;immoral and unpatriotic,&rdquo; has amassed nearly 100,000 signatures.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> One of my pet peeves when it comes to medical marijuana opponents is when they say that they don&rsquo;t support medical marijuana because there needs to be more research. Then these same opponents do everything they can to thwart any research. This happens way too often. If opponents truly wanted more research, they would allow it to happen and live with the results. But deep down they know that truth and science is not on their side, which is why they do everything they can to prevent research.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.theweedblog.com/university-arizona-wont-give-marijuana-researcher-job/" target="_blank">http://www.theweedblog.com</a></div> Which one would you pick? http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/which-one-would-you-pick <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/which-one-would-you-choose-weed-fun.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="which-would-you-pick" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/which-one-would-you-choose-weed-fun.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 581px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> How To Grow The OG Kush Marijuana Strain Indoors http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/how-to-grow-the-og-kush-marijuana-strain-indoors <h4 style="margin: 0.5em 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 21px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); line-height: 1.1em; font-weight: normal; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">OG Kush General</span></span></h4> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">It&rsquo;s common to hear the term &ldquo;Kush&rdquo; in a conversation about weed. In its base form, Kush is a pure indica strain, but OG Kush is much more of a hybrid than pure-breed. OG Kush marijuana seeds are capable of producing high-quality gardens with high-quality bud. They also have plenty of uses in the medicinal world.</span></span></p> <h4 style="margin: 0.5em 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 21px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); line-height: 1.1em; font-weight: normal; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">OG Kush&nbsp;Smoking Effects</span></span></h4> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">When we think of Kush, it&rsquo;s common to think of a harsh smoke that really deadens the senses. This is because Kush is a pure indica strain. OG Kush, on the other hand, produces the exact opposite effect. It is able to provide you with an immediate boost of energy that makes it perfect for social engagements. It&rsquo;s certainly not ideal if you are trying to get to sleep. The reason for all this is because of the increased incidence of THC on the plant. Although it is an indica-dominant hybrid, the amount of THC negates a lot of the heavy effects you&rsquo;d associate with traditional Kush varieties. The distinct citrusy, sour tastes and aromas work delightfully in concert with your improved mood and energy level.&nbsp;Download my&nbsp;<a href="http://www.ilgm-deals.com/partners/partner.php?id=129&amp;url=http://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/free-download-marijuana-grow-bible" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; text-decoration: none; color: rgb(52, 124, 23);" target="_blank">free marijuana grow bible</a>&nbsp;for more tips about growing marijuana.</span></span></p> <div class="gallery galleryid-35790 gallery-columns-3 gallery-size-thumbnail" id="gallery-1" style="margin: auto; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <dl class="gallery-item" style="margin: 10px 0px 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; float: left; text-align: center; width: 354.078125px;"> <dt class="gallery-icon landscape" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a class="fancybox" href="http://cdn4.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/og-kush-marijuana-strain-12.jpg" rel="gallery-0" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; text-decoration: none; color: rgb(52, 124, 23);"><img alt="og kush marijuana strain 1" class="attachment-thumbnail" data-wp-pid="35791" src="http://cdn6.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/og-kush-marijuana-strain-12-150x150.jpg" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 2px solid rgb(207, 207, 207); outline: 0px; max-width: none; border-top-left-radius: 4px; border-top-right-radius: 4px; border-bottom-right-radius: 4px; border-bottom-left-radius: 4px; box-shadow: rgb(136, 136, 136) 3px 3px 3px 3px;" width="150" /></a></span></span></dt> </dl> <dl class="gallery-item" style="margin: 10px 0px 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; float: left; text-align: center; width: 354.078125px;"> <dt class="gallery-icon portrait" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a class="fancybox" href="http://cdn5.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/og-kush-marijuana-strain-22.jpg" rel="gallery-0" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; text-decoration: none; color: rgb(52, 124, 23);"><img alt="og kush marijuana strain 2" class="attachment-thumbnail" data-wp-pid="35792" src="http://cdn5.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/og-kush-marijuana-strain-22-150x150.jpg" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 2px solid rgb(207, 207, 207); outline: 0px; max-width: none; border-top-left-radius: 4px; border-top-right-radius: 4px; border-bottom-right-radius: 4px; border-bottom-left-radius: 4px; box-shadow: rgb(136, 136, 136) 3px 3px 3px 3px;" width="150" /></a></span></span></dt> </dl> <dl class="gallery-item" style="margin: 10px 0px 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; float: left; text-align: center; width: 354.078125px;"> <dt class="gallery-icon portrait" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a class="fancybox" href="http://cdn4.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/og-kush-marijuana-strain-32.jpg" rel="gallery-0" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; text-decoration: none; color: rgb(52, 124, 23);"><img alt="og kush marijuana strain 3" class="attachment-thumbnail" data-wp-pid="35793" src="http://cdn4.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/og-kush-marijuana-strain-32-150x150.jpg" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 2px solid rgb(207, 207, 207); outline: 0px; max-width: none; border-top-left-radius: 4px; border-top-right-radius: 4px; border-bottom-right-radius: 4px; border-bottom-left-radius: 4px; box-shadow: rgb(136, 136, 136) 3px 3px 3px 3px;" width="150" /></a></span></span></dt> </dl> </div> <h4 style="margin: 0.5em 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 21px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); line-height: 1.1em; font-weight: normal; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">OG Kush&nbsp;Plant Features</span></span></h4> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">Perhaps the single most important factor of the OG Kush plant is its ability to produce large amounts of dense buds. These buds are considerably easy to harvest, which is good for novice growers who don&rsquo;t know much about harvesting. The plants themselves attain average heights of around 40 to 60 inches, although they are generally on the lower end of that spectrum.</span></span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">OG Kush marijuana seeds will produce plants that take about 9 weeks to flower. The plants will exude a distinct piney aroma that will have your grow room smelling like a forest. The yields are relatively low at around 16 ounces per 10 square feet, but the 21% THC content more than makes up for it. With the OG Kush strain, you can also get seeds that are feminized and/or autoflowering to make the growing process easier for you.</span></span></p> <div style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px; text-align: center;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><iframe allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" frameborder="0" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Zcx2wF4r0eI?rel=0" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border-width: 0px; outline: 0px;" width="560"></iframe></span></span></div> <h4 style="margin: 0.5em 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 21px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); line-height: 1.1em; font-weight: normal; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">OG Kush&nbsp;Medicinal Uses</span></span></h4> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">As noted previously, the OG Kush strain has a lot of indications for medicinal use. It can help with everything from depression to appetite loss. Patients on chemotherapy have used OG Kush to lessen nausea associated with the procedures. Anorexia can also be mitigated with the use of OG Kush. Glaucoma patients have seen relief with the use of OG Kush. The strain can also be used as a general pain reliever.</span></span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 16px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 25.600000381469727px;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;">If you want to start growing OG Kush, download my free grow guide and order some&nbsp;marijuana seeds.&nbsp;All&nbsp;<a href="http://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/129-5-3-6.html" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; text-decoration: none; color: rgb(52, 124, 23);" target="_blank">top quality marijuana seeds</a>&nbsp;are available in my&nbsp;marijuana seed shop.&nbsp;We ship seeds to the US, CA and many other countries.

Hillary Clinton called for more research just last month on CNN.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> While existing scientific evidence shows that marijuana is less addictive and harmful than alcohol and tobacco, more research would be welcome and useful to the country. But what most politicians don&rsquo;t acknowledge is that the federal government has made it incredibly hard to perform this research. Researchers have to go through a cumbersome process to obtain approval from multiple federal agencies before they are allowed to obtain and study the drug. Often their requests are denied and some researchers have had to sue the government before their projects were cleared.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> In addition to the Food and Drug Administration, which has to approve all clinical trials, researchers studying marijuana also have to obtain approval from the Drug Enforcement Administration and the National Institute on Drug Abuse, which controls the country&rsquo;s only legal source for research-grade marijuana. Independent researchers who are not funded by the National Institutes of Health also have to obtain approval from a Department of Health and Human Services scientific review panel.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The drug abuse institute says that it has funded and provided marijuana to researchers looking into the therapeutic benefits of the various chemicals found in the plant, and that it had 28 active grants in this area as of January. But it is far less charitable about providing marijuana to researchers who are independently funded. It has agreed to provide the drug to just 16 such projects since 1999.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> One researcher, Lyle E. Craker a professor at the University of Massachusetts, grew so frustrated with the delays in getting access to marijuana that he sought to grow his own plants. But the Drug Enforcement Administration refused to grant him a license and a federal appeals court ruled in favor of the D.E.A. last year.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> A big part of the problem is that marijuana is listed in the restrictive Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act along with much more dangerous drugs such as heroin and LSD. The law says Schedule I drugs have &ldquo;no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.&rdquo; It is no wonder then that the American College of Physicians said in 2008 that marijuana&rsquo;s inclusion in Schedule I &ldquo;raises significant concerns for researchers, physicians, and patients&rdquo; and urged &ldquo;an evidence-based review of marijuana&rsquo;s status as a Schedule I controlled substance to determine whether it should be reclassified.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Read more:&nbsp;<a href="http://takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/07/30/how-the-federal-government-slows-marijuana-research/?_php=true&amp;_type=blogs&amp;_r=0" target="_blank">http://takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com</a></div> Can you fail a drug test because of secondhand marijuana smoke? http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/can-you-fail-a-drug-test-because-of-secondhand-marijuana-smoke <div style="text-align: center;"> <img alt="failed-drug-test-2nd-hand-smoke" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/can-you-fail-a-drug-test-because-of-2nd-hand-smoke.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 282px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></div> <div> Josh Gordon is appealing his failed drug test, and apparently has a pretty good case to stand on when he meets with Roger Goodell on Friday. He is not abandoning his contention that the trace amounts of THC picked up in his system were caused by secondhand smoke. That provoked an important debate in the SB Nation newsroom: can you really fail a drug test from secondhand smoke?</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> David Fucillo of SB Nation and Niners Nation (pictured below) says that you can indeed fail a drug test because of secondhand smoke because it happened to him.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> He later revealed that it was a hair follicle test, which does have a greater level of sensitivity. So is he onto something here?</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> One problem with drug testing for marijuana is the wide variety of variables, ranging from the potency of the weed to the level of use by the testing subject.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The likelihood of testing positive for THC from secondhand smoke is slim. Message boards around the Internet agree that you&#39;d have to be in a small, unventilated space with lots of smoke, a clambake if you will, to have enough THC in your system to flunk a test.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Read more:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2014/7/29/5949445/secondhand-marijuana-smoke-drug-test-nfl-josh-gordon" target="_blank">http://www.sbnation.com</a></div> New York Times To Drug Test Employees Despite Supporting Marijuana Legalization http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/new-york-times-to-drug-test-employees-despite-supporting-marijuana-legalization <div> <img alt="nytimes-drug-testing-employees" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/nytimes-drug-testing-employees.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 187px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />The media world was rocked this weekend when the New York Times Editorial Board came out in support of marijuana legalization. The New York Times is in the midst of releasing a six part series dedicated to marijuana legalization. The endorsement was welcomed by marijuana activists around the world, and got the attention of just about every media outlet on the planet by the end of the weekend.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> While the endorsement is very much appreciated, I still find it troubling that the New York Times plans to continue to drug test its employees. Every drug test that is paid for by the New York Times financially supports companies who have led the fight to keep marijuana illegal, in addition to penalyzing prospective employees for marijuana use. Per the Huffington Post:</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> But the editorial board&rsquo;s new stance doesn&rsquo;t mean incoming Times employees can partake. As Gawker recently noted, the Times is one of several big media companies that require prospective hires to take a drug test. A Times spokeswoman told HuffPost that the paper&rsquo;s policy for drug testing hasn&rsquo;t changed, despite the editorial board&rsquo;s decision.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &ldquo;Our corporate policy on this issue reflects current law,&rdquo; the spokeswoman said. &ldquo;We aren&rsquo;t going to get into details beyond that.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Arbitrary drug testing is wrong. People should be hired based on their skill set, not on the purity of their urine. An impairment based drug testing system is much better, and is more accurate. A drug test shows that someone has consumed marijuana within the last 30 days, but does not indicate if that person was under the influence at work, or even if they are a bad worker. I have had marijuana in my system consistently for over two decades, and I&rsquo;ve always been an exceptional employee, and I know I&rsquo;m not alone.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.theweedblog.com/new-york-times-drug-test-employees-marijuana-legalization/" target="_blank">http://www.theweedblog.com</a></div> The federal governments incredibly poor, misleading argument for marijuana prohibition http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/the-federal-governments-incredibly-poor-misleading-argument-for-marijuana-prohibition <div> <img alt="marijuana-prohibition" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/marijuana-prohibition-doesnt-work.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 381px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />The New York Times editorial board is making news with a week-long series advocating for the full legalization of marijuana in the United States. In response, the White House&#39;s Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) published a blog post Monday purporting to lay out the federal government&#39;s case against marijuana reform.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> That case, as it turns out, it surprisingly weak. It&#39;s built on half-truths and radically decontextualized facts, curated from social science research that is otherwise quite solid. I&#39;ve gone through the ONDCP&#39;s arguments, and the research behind them, below.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The irony here is that with the coming wave of deregulation and legalization, we really do need a sane national discussion of the costs and benefits of widespread marijuana use. But the ONDCP&#39;s ideological insistence on prohibition prevents them from taking part in that conversation.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Here&#39;s what they have to say:</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Marijuana use affects the developing brain. A recent study in Brain reveals impairment of the development of structures in some regions of the brain following prolonged marijuana use that began in adolescence or young adulthood.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The same is true for alcohol and tobacco. This is a great argument for restricting young peoples&#39; access to the drugs (as Washington and Colorado have done with marijuana), but a poor one for banning it completely.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Moreover, the study cited was of a group of 59 individuals who had been heavy marijuana smokers for 16 years, and who had smoked an average of 4.5 joints every single day over that period.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> This is far outside the realm of normal, moderate use. A recent Colorado Department of Revenue report found, for instance, that the majority of users in that state smoked five or fewer times per month. Again, what we have is not an argument against marijuana use, but an argument against overdoing it.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2014/07/30/the-federal-governments-incredibly-poor-misleading-argument-for-marijuana-prohibition/" target="_blank">http://www.washingtonpost.com</a></div> Black Widow - Hybrid http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/black-widow-hybrid <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/black-widow-weed-flowering-black-widow-cannabis-buds-thcfinder-thcf-019x.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="black-widow-hybrid" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/black-widow-weed-flowering-black-widow-cannabis-buds-thcfinder-thcf-019x.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_1152_0.jpg" target="_blank">&nbsp;<img alt="black-widow-weed-3" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1152_0.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 135px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1152_3.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="black-widow-weed-1" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1152_3.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 100px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1152_2.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="black-widow-weed-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1152_2.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 113px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <strong><span style="color:#ff0000;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strains/hybrid/black_widow" target="_blank">Black Widow - Hybrid</a></span></span></span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <strong><span style="color:#ff0000;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"></span></span></span></strong><span style="color:#ff0000;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"></span></span></span><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"></span></span></p> Parents Desperately Seek Medical Marijuana for Kids http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/parents-desperately-seek-medical-marijuana-for-kids <div> <img alt="parents-seek-medical-cannabis-for-kids" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/parents-seek-medical-cannabis-for-kids.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 158px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />California has the oldest and most liberal compassionate care law among the 23 states plus Washington, D.C. that allow the use of medical marijuana.

To be fair, Mr. Baird also indicated some concerns about supply and regulation, but those are issues that can be easily worked out if the Premier is indeed open to the idea. Medical marijuana opponents in Australia are clinging to the &lsquo;we need more research&rsquo; argument, which is one of my pet peeves. For starters, there&rsquo;s overwhelming evidence and research already out there.

Supervisors this week could set a Sept. 9 public hearing on the ordinance, after which they could vote on the proposed law.</div> <div> Jeffries, who represents a district stretching from Riverside to Lake Elsinore, is sponsoring the ordinance to crack down on for-profit marijuana fields. More than 200 marijuana grows are in the Mead Valley, Good Hope and Meadowbrook areas of Jeffries&rsquo; district, according to county officials.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Authorities say solicitors offer thousands of dollars a month to property owners and renters if they let their backyards be used for growing marijuana.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Permits posted near the crops state the marijuana is being grown for medicinal use. Jeffries said he fears drug cartels are involved, though sheriff&rsquo;s officials say they have not received specific reports on such activity. The crops increase the risk of crime, create noxious odors and lead to illegal power and water hookups, according to a county staff report on the ordinance.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Jeffries has said he doesn&rsquo;t want to go after legitimate medical marijuana patients with small crops. Medical marijuana is legal in California, although it remains against federal law and many cities and counties &ndash; Riverside County among them &ndash; have banned dispensaries.</div> <div> Technically, the county already outlaws marijuana cultivation. Jeffries&rsquo; ordinance would spell that out more clearly and impose $10 fines for anyone found guilty of cultivating six or fewer plants.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Those who grow more than six but fewer than a dozen plants would be subject to a fine not to exceed $200. Anyone who cultivates 12 or more plants would be guilty of a misdemeanor could be fined up to $1,000, face a jail sentence of up to six months or both.</div> <div> Lanny Swerdlow, a marijuana legalization advocate from Whitewater, said the ordinance is deeply flawed.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &ldquo;It&rsquo;s nice that they lowered the fines,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;They claim it&rsquo;s to stop large-scale grows ... but it stops little teeny (grows) by patients, indoor or outdoor.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Read more:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.pe.com/articles/marijuana-698088-ordinance-jeffries.html" target="_blank">http://www.pe.com/</a></div> Purple Urkle Bud - Indica http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/purple-urkle-bud-indica <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/purple-urkle-greenworks-frosty-nug-purple-bud-purple-weed-purple-urkle-weed-thcfinder-001x.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="purple-urkle-weed" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/purple-urkle-greenworks-frosty-nug-purple-bud-purple-weed-purple-urkle-weed-thcfinder-001x.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" 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/3_3511_10.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="purple-urkle-weed-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3511_10.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3511_9.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="purple-urkle-weed-3" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3511_9.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><strong><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></strong></span></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.

Worse, the drugs were damaging Haleigh&#39;s organs.</div> <div> &quot;She was maxed out,&quot; Cox said. &quot;She&#39;d quit breathing several times a day, and the doctors blamed it on the seizure medications.&quot;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Cox had heard that a form of medical marijuana might help, but it wasn&#39;t available in central Georgia. So a week after hearing the ominous diagnosis, she and Haleigh packed up and moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado. There, Haleigh began a regimen of cannabis oil: four times a day and once at night.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> By summer, she was down to just a handful of seizures a day. In less than three months, doctors were able to wean her off Depakote, a powerful medication that had been damaging her liver.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Haleigh had never been able to walk or talk. But freed from seizures in Colorado, &quot;She said &#39;Mama&#39; for the first time,&quot; Cox said. &quot;She&#39;s playing with puzzles; she&#39;s walking. She&#39;s almost being a normal child.&quot;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Despite all the good news, Cox is living in limbo. Her husband, a paramedic, couldn&#39;t afford to leave his job and pension; he still lives and works in Forsyth, Georgia. The family is relying on charity to keep their Colorado apartment for the next few months; beyond that, the future is uncertain.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> A bill being introduced Monday in the U.S. House of Representatives could be Cox&#39;s ticket home. The three-page bill would amend the Controlled Substances Act -- the federal law that criminalizes marijuana -- to exempt plants with an extremely low percentage of THC, the chemical that makes users high.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> If passed, it would be the first time that federal law allows any medical marijuana use.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &quot;No one should face a choice of having their child suffer or moving to Colorado and splitting up their family,&quot; said Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pennsylvania, the bill&#39;s sponsor. &quot;We live in America, and if there&#39;s something that would make my child better, and they can&#39;t get it because of the government, that&#39;s not right.&quot;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The bill will land in a Congress that may be open to change. Across the country, highly sympathetic patients and a nonintoxicating product have proved a popular mix. This year alone, 11 states have passed legislation loosening regulation of cannabis strains with high cannabidiol and/or minimal THC content.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> In this atmosphere, Perry says that once members and their staffs are brought up to speed, he expects the bill to attract &quot;overwhelming&quot; support. &quot;In a time of intractability in Washington, D.C., this is something where we can show some progress.&quot;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Read more:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.cnn.com/2014/07/28/health/federal-marijuana-bill/" target="_blank">http://www.cnn.com</a></div> Super blunt Monday http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/super-blunt-monday <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/super-blunt-monday-starting-your-week-off-right-superblunttimefun.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="super-blunt-monday" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/super-blunt-monday-starting-your-week-off-right-superblunttimefun.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 675px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> OG Nugs - Sativa http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/07/og-nugs-sativa <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/og-greenworks-weed-og-frosty-cannabis-nugs-og-weed-thcfinder-thcf-9109xkwi.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="og-weed-sativa" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/og-greenworks-weed-og-frosty-cannabis-nugs-og-weed-thcfinder-thcf-9109xkwi.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_3533_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="og-sativa" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/57730_3533_1.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/3_3533_31.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="og-sativa-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3533_31.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/3_3533_29.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="og-sativa-weed-3" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3533_29.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 450px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <span style="font-size:14px;"><strong><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif;"><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strains/sativa/og" target="_blank">OG - Sativa</a></span></strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <span style="color: rgb(125, 125, 125); font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;">The &quot;Ocean Grown&quot; OG Kush comes from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles and is considered to be the strain that put Southern California buds on par with the flowers coming from up North.
