Some smokers find the buzz to be a very strong body stone, while others report a high with more energetic, cerebral properties as well as a body sensation. THC levels have been reported at 20 percent for this variety, making it a one-hitter quitter. CBD has been measured at .9 percent.</span></a></p> State Lawmakers Cancel Local Pot Decriminalization—But It Gets Worse http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2017/03/state-lawmakers-cancel-local-pot-decriminalizationbut-it-gets-worse <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://3ncb884ou5e49t9eb3fpeur1.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/FedsDropCharges-OneGramWeed-1024x640.jpg"><img alt="" src="http://3ncb884ou5e49t9eb3fpeur1.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/FedsDropCharges-OneGramWeed-1024x640.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 281px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p class="p1" style="box-sizing: inherit; margin: 0px 0px 1rem; padding: 0px; font-size: 16px; line-height: 1.6; text-rendering: optimizeLegibility; color: rgb(34, 31, 32); font-family: Georgia, Times, &quot;Times New Roman&quot;, serif; font-variant-ligatures: common-ligatures; background-color: rgb(254, 254, 254);"> <span class="s1" style="box-sizing: inherit;">Conservative Republicans are conservative, to a flaw.

Nothing wrong with direct democracy: Voter initiative was how medical marijuana first came to pass in California, and the voter initiative is also how adult-use marijuana legalization is coming about. However, making laws that reflect popular support is something elected lawmakers are supposed to do&mdash;you could even say it&rsquo;s their core function.</span></p> <p class="p1" style="box-sizing: inherit; margin: 0px 0px 1rem; padding: 0px; font-size: 16px; line-height: 1.6; text-rendering: optimizeLegibility; color: rgb(34, 31, 32); font-family: Georgia, Times, &quot;Times New Roman&quot;, serif; font-variant-ligatures: common-ligatures; background-color: rgb(254, 254, 254);"> Read More:<a href="http://hightimes.com/news/fear-and-avoidance-tennessee-medical-marijuana-dies-because-lawmakers-are-scared/">http://hightimes.com/news/fear-and-avoidance-tennessee-medical-marijuana-dies-because-lawmakers-are-scared/</a></p> What strain are you smoking on today? http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2017/03/what-strain-are-you-smoking-on-today-461 <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="https://s10.postimg.org/ljz9pl6bd/1798759_415958965255671_8413730512052696226_n.jpg"><img alt="" src="https://s10.postimg.org/ljz9pl6bd/1798759_415958965255671_8413730512052696226_n.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 436px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> These Are the Best—and the Worst—States for Medical Marijuana http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2017/03/these-are-the-bestand-the-worststates-for-medical-marijuana <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://3ncb884ou5e49t9eb3fpeur1.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/lf_medical_delivery-SM-Lochfoot-1024x640.jpg"><img alt="" src="http://3ncb884ou5e49t9eb3fpeur1.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/lf_medical_delivery-SM-Lochfoot-1024x640.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 281px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p class="p1" style="box-sizing: inherit; margin: 0px 0px 1rem; padding: 0px; font-size: 16px; line-height: 1.6; text-rendering: optimizeLegibility; color: rgb(34, 31, 32); font-family: Georgia, Times, &quot;Times New Roman&quot;, serif; font-variant-ligatures: common-ligatures; background-color: rgb(254, 254, 254);"> <span class="s1" style="box-sizing: inherit;">On paper, medical marijuana is more common in America than firearms.</span></p> <p class="p1" style="box-sizing: inherit; margin: 0px 0px 1rem; padding: 0px; font-size: 16px; line-height: 1.6; text-rendering: optimizeLegibility; color: rgb(34, 31, 32); font-family: Georgia, Times, &quot;Times New Roman&quot;, serif; font-variant-ligatures: common-ligatures; background-color: rgb(254, 254, 254);"> <span class="s1" style="box-sizing: inherit;">Forty-four states have medical cannabis laws on the books&mdash;which means that more than 300 million Americans can access legal marijuana in some form if they or a family member is sick.
