Plus, places like Walmart have already started selling Christmas decorations. So us stoners are going to start preparing for Thanksgiving, a favorite of stoners since the whole point is to eat. The munchies are total bother for stoners but with this super easy way to make your turkey this year, you&rsquo;ll solve the issue of getting stoned and the munchies in the same meal.&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> What You&rsquo;ll Need;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 1 tsp thyme leaves</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 1 tbsp lemon juice</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 1 tsp sweet basil</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 1 tsp poultry seasoning&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 1 medium sized turkey</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 1/4 cup chicken broth</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 1/2 cup marijuana butter</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 1/2 tsp sage</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Start by melting the cannabis butter in a small saucepan over low heat until it is melted and then mix in the remaining ingredients. While the contents of the saucepan are simmering, season the turkey with salt and pepper if you wish. Then, make a small incision in the turkey and force a finger between the slit, separating the skin from the meat. Using a meat injector, squirt about half of the butter mix under the skin of the turkey.&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Put the turkey in the oven and cook it the way you like it (everyone likes their turkey differently, you may have a family secret for cooking the bird). Use the remaining butter mix to bast the turkey while it cooks, basting it about every half an hour. Once the timer runs out on the turkey, pull the bird out and let it cool a bit. Then you&rsquo;re ready to enjoy! Pair the bird with your favorite medicated side dishes, such as medicated mashed potatoes, ultimate fried green beans, and THC infused cranberry sauce!</div> Holidays are just around the corner http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/holidays-are-just-around-the-corner <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/tistheseason-xmax-time-is-coming-soon-thcf-fun.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="holiday-blunt-fun" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/tistheseason-xmax-time-is-coming-soon-thcf-fun.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 450px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> New Mexico Governor Candidate Vows To Protect Medical Marijuana http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/new-mexico-governor-candidate-vows-to-protect-medical-marijuana <div> <img alt="new-mexico-gov-says-he-will-protect-medical-marijuana" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/new-mexico-gov-vows-to-protect-medical-marijuana.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 186px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />Gary King is running for Governor of New Mexico. Below is a press release he unveiled involving his views on medical marijuana:</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Statement: A Vote for Gary King is a vote to protect medical cannabis patients.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Caring for our own is a strong New Mexican value and a fundamental King family value. When people are in pain we should do everything we can to lessen their suffering. As your Governor I will use my power to protect and improve the Department of Health&rsquo;s medical cannabis program and improve patient access to this medicine for all New Mexicans who need it by asking my Secretary of Health to make it a priority in his or her department.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> All around the state people come up and tell me what being able to legally access marijuana means to them. I can see the truth in their eyes as they speak to me. During this campaign, patients and their loved ones have given me a deeper understanding of how absolutely critical the medical cannabis program is for thousands of our sickest and most vulnerable patients and their families. Whether a veteran who was exposed to Agent Orange and is undergoing chemotherapy, a terminally ill cancer patient or a victim of violence suffering post-traumatic stress who hasn&rsquo;t slept in 36 hours and cannot rest, I am committed to ensuring that all patients who need medical cannabis have safe and affordable access to their medicine.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Medical marijuana, a history of compassion in New Mexico&hellip;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> I am proud that the New Mexico Legislature passed the Lynn Pierson Therapeutic Cannabis Act passed in 1978 and the Lynn Pierson and Erin Armstrong Compassionate Use Act in 2007. This compassionate response to the desperate needs of patients suffering from cancer, glaucoma and other debilitating diseases paved the way for hundreds of New Mexicans to find relief for their symptoms in a regulated system. Brave New Mexico women advocated for the passage of these laws, which not only provided relief for hundreds of New Mexicans, they also paved the way for 19 other states to enact similar legislation. As Governor I pledge to protect these laws and honor the legacy of the women who stood up for themselves, their families and other New Mexicans in need.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Medical marijuana and overdose death prevention&hellip;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Overdose death rates are at epidemic proportions across the nation and in our state. Medical marijuana is a safe and non-toxic alternative to opiate pain killers. Many people say that medical marijuana helps them abstain from self-medicating with alcohol or using more harmful</div> <div> substances like narcotics to control their pain.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> As New Mexico&rsquo;s Governor I will reinvigorate our harm reduction efforts and will support Department of Health efforts to educate licensed health care providers in New Mexico about how medical marijuana can be an overdose prevention tool and about certifying patients through the New Mexico Department of Health.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Medical marijuana and pharmaceutical drugs&hellip;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Pharmaceutical drugs are helpful for many people, but not for everyone. For many people medical marijuana simply works better than pharmacy pills do to take away their pain, symptoms of post-traumatic stress, etcetera without giving them debilitating side effects, like suicidal ideation, that they have when they take pharmaceutical drugs.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.theweedblog.com/new-mexico-governor-candidate-vows-to-protect-medical-marijuana/" target="_blank">http://www.theweedblog.com/new-mexico-governor-candidate-vows-to-protect-medical-marijuana/</a></div> Super Jack - Sativa http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/super-jack-sativa <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/51354_3558_2.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="super-jack-sativa" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/51354_3558_2.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 244px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3558_6.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="super-jack-weed-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3558_6.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_3558_5.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="super-jack-weed-3" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3558_5.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_3558_4.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="super-jack-weed-4" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3558_4.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 336px; 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/sativa/super_jack" target="_blank">Super Jack - Sativa</a></span></span></strong></p> Wild Growing Pot Plant Gets Axed http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/wild-growing-pot-plant-gets-axed <div> <img alt="wild-cannabis-plants" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/wild-pot-plants-get-axed.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 201px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />Cannabis is a weed. By definition, weeds are plants that are considered undesirable, unattractive, or troublesome, especially one that grows where it is not wanted. Weeds spread fast or take the place of desired plants. They grow naturally and without human interaction. A few examples are dandelions, crabgrass, and vines (which can kill plants and even trees with their brutal grip). The name &ldquo;weed&rdquo; appropriately fits cannabis, as the cannabis plant can grow where ever, when ever. It grows quickly and without help from humans. But even when growing in the wild, on it&rsquo;s own, cannabis isn&rsquo;t safe from human tyranny.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> In Britain, a two-foot-tall cannabis plant was found growing at the mouth of the River Doon, Ayr. A horseback rider came across the plant one day and couldn&rsquo;t believe what she was seeing. Since the summer, the plant has been growing and thriving due to the nutrition from seaweed and weeks of dry heat. Police said that they haven&rsquo;t ever seen anything like this, which kind of shows how in the dark the authorities are of the fact that this plant is what it is; a WEED.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The horseback rider took a photo of the plant and showed it to everyone she knew. All of the people she showed it to knew what it was immediately. The single pot plant stood alone on the beach, leading people to believe that it was dropped there possibly by a bird that had either gotten one of the seeds in it&rsquo;s food or the lucky bird had recently visited a cannabis farm. Unfortunately for the not-so-little trooper, the location of it&rsquo;s grow was given to the police so that the plant could be destroyed.&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> There was recently another incident in which an older woman asked a BBC radio show to help her identify a strange plant that she found growing in her garden. What was the plant? A five foot tall marijuana plant that had taken root in her backyard. Patricia Hewitson was informed of the type of plant on air, with her only response being a shocked, &ldquo;Oh dear.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Hewitson, 65, was confused as to why the plant was giving off such a pungent odor and even put a photo on Facebook, asking her friends what the mystery plant was. No one knew and the plant was eventually named by the radio show as being a marijuana plant.&nbsp;</div> Pre 98 Bubba - Hybrid http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/pre-98-bubba-hybrid-1 <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/57730_2283_0.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="pre-98-bubba-weed" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/57730_2283_0.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_2283_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="pre-98-bubba-weed-1" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_2283_1.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_2283_2.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="pre-98-bubba-weed-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_2283_2.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_2283_0.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="pre-98-bubba-weed-4" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_2283_0.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/hybrid/pre_98_bubba" target="_blank">Pre 98 Bubba - Hybrid</a></span></span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <span style="color: rgb(125, 125, 125); font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;">A very sweet, earthy strain that is almost pure Indica.

A herd of sheep recently made news when they discovered a dump of cannabis on the side of the road. And I&rsquo;m not talking about a single baggie or anything. This pile of plants was huge and the police estimated that it was worth about $5,500. The sheep managed to eat a great amount of the pot before their owner, Nellie Budd (no pun intended but funny right??), stopped them and informed the police.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> When the police arrived, they weren&rsquo;t previously aware of the scene and were baffled as to where such a large amount of cannabis had come from. The plants had been tossed off near one of the grazing areas in large black trash bags. The flock wasn&rsquo;t deterred and managed to chew through the bags and get to the weedy goodness inside. But while they had no knowledge of the pile of pot, the cops assured Budd that they would investigate the case fully. They&rsquo;re still on the hunt for the person who left the weed on the side of the road. There are no leads as of right now.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Ms. Budd inspected the sheep and discovered that there were no ill side effects from the absurd amount of weed that they ate, which is good. Some animals do develop adverse effects when too much bud is eaten. While animals do possess cannabinoid receptors in their brains much like us, they handle the substance much differently. Some animals pass out, throw up, and seize when given too much cannabis. But the farmers said that the flock is fine.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &ldquo;My sheep weren&rsquo;t quite on their backs with legs in the air but they probably had the munchies,&rdquo; the sheep owners said.</div> What are you Smoking today? http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/what-are-you-smoking-today-1 <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/whatsinyourpipe-what-are-you-smoking-on-today-cannabis-thcf-bowls.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="what-are-you-smoking-today" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/whatsinyourpipe-what-are-you-smoking-on-today-cannabis-thcf-bowls.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 483px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> Doctors Testify In Federal Court That Marijuana Needs To Be Rescheduled http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/doctors-testify-in-federal-court-that-marijuana-needs-to-be-rescheduled <div> <img alt="doctors-testify-mj-needs-to-be-rescheduled" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/doctors-testify-marijuana-needs-to-be-rescheduled.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 172px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />The fact that marijuana is a Schedule 1 drug is slap in the face to science, compassion, and logic. For something to be Schedule 1, it has to have no medical value. Marijuana clearly has medical value. This is proven by the fact that the federal government grows and supplies medical marijuana to four federal medical marijuana patients, and has for decades. The federal government also has medical marijuana patents. It may be the most hypocritical policy in government to say that marijuana should remain Schedule 1, and that&rsquo;s saying a lot because the government is full of hypocrisy.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Doctors were in federal court yesterday making those arguments. Per Smell the Truth:</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Doctors Carl Hart, Associate Professor of Psychology at Columbia University, retired physician Phillip Denny, and Greg Carter, Medical Director of St. Luke&rsquo;s Rehabilitation Institute in Spokane, Washington will testify Monday that marijuana &mdash; real name, &ldquo;cannabis&rdquo; &mdash; is not the demon drug the federal government makes it out to be. Accepted science does not justify the listing of cannabis as a dangerous &ldquo;Schedule I&rdquo; substance, many say.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &ldquo;[I]t is my considered opinion that including marijuana in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act is counter to all the scientific evidence in a society that uses and values empirical evidence,&rdquo; Dr. Hart declared. &ldquo;After two decades of intense scientific inquiry in this area, it has become apparent the current scheduling of cannabis has no footing in the realities of science and neurobiology.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> This is an unprecedented hearing, writes cannabis law reform advocate Paul Armentano, deputy director of NORML.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &ldquo;This is the first time in recent memory that a federal judge has granted an evidentiary hearing on a motion challenging the statute which classifies cannabis to be one of the most dangerous illicit substances in the nation.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The testimonies will keep going. I&rsquo;m hopeful that the judge will see the truth, but I won&rsquo;t hold my breath that there will be any action on this area of public policy. If the Obama administration truly wanted to re-schedule marijuana, the administration would have already. Obama knows this and Eric Holder knows this, despite Eric Holder&rsquo;s recent comments that he would be &lsquo;open to the idea.&rsquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.theweedblog.com/doctors-testify-in-federal-court-that-marijuana-needs-to-be-rescheduled/" target="_blank">http://www.theweedblog.com/doctors-testify-in-federal-court-that-marijuana-needs-to-be-rescheduled/</a></div> Blueberry Haze - Hybrid http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/blueberry-haze-hybrid <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3480_5.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="blueberry-haze-hybrid" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3480_5.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 464px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3480_4.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="b-haze-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3480_4.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 351px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3480_2.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="b-haze-3" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3480_2.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 440px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3480_0.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="b-haze-5" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3480_0.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 338px; 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/blueberry_haze" target="_blank">Blueberry Haze - Hybrid</a></span></span></strong></p> Colorado Gov. Says Legalization Was "Reckless" http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/colorado-gov.-says-legalization-was-reckless <div> <img alt="co-gov-says-mj-was-reckless" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/colorado-govenor-says-marijuana-legalization-was-reckless.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 187px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />The whole entire point of democracy is that the people get to vote on ideas that some have proposed&hellip; Right? Politicians are supposed to be the voice of the people, not the voice of their own opinions. And while these days, all politicians just seem to be doing whatever they feel like doing, leaving us normal people in the dust, wondering how did these people get in to office?! We unfortunately elected them. The people who keep cannabis illegal? A lot of them are paid handsomely to back laws keeping the plant thriving on the black market. The worst is when a good law passes, say one that benefits the society as a whole, and politicians have to try to dampen the positivity.&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The Governor of Colorado is one of those Debbie Downer politicians that seems to be trying to back peddle on the cannabis legalization initiative that Colorado passed. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat that is seeking re-election for a second term, was asked in a debate what he would tell other states that are considering cannabis legalization. His response was, &ldquo;I would view it as reckless before we see what the consequences are. I think for us to do that without having all the data, there is not enough data, and to a certain extent you could say it was reckless. I&rsquo;m not saying it was reckless because I&rsquo;ll get quoted everywhere but if it were up to me, I wouldn&rsquo;t have done it, right? I opposed it from the very beginning. In matter of fact, all right what the hell, I&rsquo;ll say it was reckless.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Colorado&rsquo;s latest estimate on tax revenue (released last month) suggests that the state will receive $50 million a year just in taxes on the cannabis sales. With that money, the roads would be perfect, kids would get free school lunches, buildings could be renovated, and the entire state would be better off. But still, Hickenlooper thinks that other states should wait. He stands by his idea that the legalization was reckless, even though the state hasn&rsquo;t seen any negative feedback from the legalization of the plant.

With the majority of Americans backing the legalization movement, saying that the decision of the voters was &ldquo;reckless&rdquo; isn&rsquo;t the best way (IMO) to get re-elected. Colorado has a huge opportunity to be a leader in the marijuana movement, both with the model of business and the way that the cannabis indulgers act!</div> Animal Cookies (Hybrid) http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/animal-cookies-hybrid-3 <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1133_3.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="animal-cookies-hybrid" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1133_3.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/94983_1133_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="animal-cookies-hybrid" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/94983_1133_1.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 113px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1133_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="animal-cookies-weed-4" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1133_1.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" />&nbsp;</a><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1133_0.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="animal-cookies-hybrid-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_1133_0.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 104px; 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/animal_cookies" target="_blank">Animal Cookies - Hybrid</a></span></span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <span style="color: rgb(125, 125, 125); font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif;">This extremely powerful and loved strain is a hybrid cross between the incredibly beloved Girl Scout Cookie strain and the Fire OG strain. The strain is a fast flowering plant, making it extremely popular among growers. It flower in about 9-10 weeks and grows as a dense plant. The strain is incredibly strong, not for the weak lunged smoker, and is highly recommended for patients that are suffering with pain or insomnia. Needless to say, Animal Cookies is a heavy indica strain that you&#39;re sure to love. The aroma of the flowers is sweet, with a tart sour bite. It smells earthy and strong, a strain that you don&#39;t want to be carrying if you&#39;re not going to be keeping it in a sealed container. The buds are a gorgeous hue of green, covered in frost, tipped in a dark purple that resembles the ripest of grapes. Trust me, you&#39;ll be in love with this strain just from smell along but once you smoke the smooth, gorgeous flowers, you&#39;ll be keeping Animal Cookies in your bong for a long time. For patients looking for a good medicine, Animal Cookies assists patients dealing with ADD and ADHD, as well as severe anxiety, asthma, gastrointestinal disorder, and the dreaded cancer. With so many positive benefits of the strain, it&#39;s a wonder that more people aren&#39;t talking about it. In addition the the illnesses listed above, this bud will also make the user feel euphoric and happy. This characteristic is especially important for people dealing with anxiety and depression. Many patients (as well as recreational smokers) should definitely be smoking on these buds.</span></p> Mom Jailed For Giving Son Cannabis Oil http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/mom-jailed-for-giving-son-cannabis-oil <div> <img alt="mom-jailed-for-giving-son-cannabis" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/mom-jailed-for-giving-son-cannabis-oil.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 192px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />When a doctor suggests something to a parent with a sick child, the parent is probably going to take the doctors advice. As did Angela Brown of Madison, Minnesota, when she ran out of options for her son Trey Brown (age 15), who had been struck in the head by a line drive while playing baseball. The doctor that Brown was seeing suggested that the family turn to cannabis oil as a last resort, as Trey had started to harm himself and began to think about committing suicide. The Brown family took the doctor&rsquo;s advice and the oil seemed to give the teen a break from the terrible effects of the accident.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &ldquo;Trey would describe it as reducing the pressure in his head. He didn&rsquo;t have the pressure anymore and his muscles would calm down,&rdquo; Angela said. &ldquo;Everything was great until I opened my mouth to the wrong person and I got turned in. And family services questioned my son at school, the cops came to my workplace.&rdquo;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> After examining the family and their situation, the county family services dropped the case against Brown but the Lac Qui Parle County attorney was gunning for criminal charges against the mother who was just trying to help her suffering son. Angela now faces two gross misdemeanors which includes child endangerment. Hard to believe since all she was trying to do was make her son&rsquo;s life easier after experiencing the blow to the head that really effected the way that he was living.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Angela Brown has gained a great deal of support from the social media crowd. People have been urging the prosecutors to drop the case in forums as well as long petitions for the concerned mother. &ldquo;He is worth every bit of struggle and any bit of time we have to spend in a courtroom,&rdquo; David Brown, Trey&rsquo;s father, told reporters in August when the charges were filed.&nbsp;</div> Parents dealing with their kids on the weekdays http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/parents-dealing-with-their-kids-on-the-weekdays <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/howparentsdealwiththeirkids-on-the-weekdays.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="dealing-with-kids" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/howparentsdealwiththeirkids-on-the-weekdays.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 563px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> Marijuana Opponent Tries To Tie Marijuana To Terrorism http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/marijuana-opponent-tries-to-tie-marijuana-to-terrorism <div> <img alt="marijuana-trying-to-be-tied-to-terrorism" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/trying-to-tie-marijuana-to-terriosim.jpg" style="width: 280px; height: 112px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin-left: 4px; margin-right: 4px; float: right;" />MarijuanReefer Madnessa opponents are getting desperate. Within the last week or so, Dr. Christian Thurstone of Project S.A.M. tried to insinuate that the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri was the result of marijuana consumption. Also, a marijuana opponent at an Oregon debate stated that five babies have died as a result of marijuana in Colorado, which was blatantly false. And in one of the saddest articles I&rsquo;ve ever read, marijuana opponent Cliff Kincaid is suggesting that marijuana is the cause of terrorist acts. Below is an excerpt from his article, which I encourage all readers to leave a comment on:</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Zehaf-Bibeau was an Islamist, as well as a pothead. In another notorious case of jihad, one of the Boston Marathon bombers, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was not only a dope smoker but a dealer.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> It appears that Dzhokhar&rsquo;s brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev was implicated in a Jewish triple murder case in which thousands of dollars&rsquo; worth of marijuana and money were left covering the bodies. All three victims&rsquo; throats were slashed.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> It may be too early to draw a direct connection between jihad, marijuana, and mass murder, but it is worth considering whether consumption of the drug can alter the mind to such an extent that jihad becomes appealing to some mentally unstable individuals.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> We also have the case of Michael Brown, the black thug who was shot and killed in Ferguson, Missouri. An autopsy and toxicology report finds that he had marijuana in his system and had been a user for some time.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> There is no hint of jihad here, only anti-police violence. But the role of marijuana in this violent confrontation deserves extensive coverage, not just a footnote. Trayvon Martin, the black juvenile delinquent shot and killed after he assaulted anti-crime activist George Zimmerman, also smoked marijuana regularly.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The article left me almost speechless. This shows just how dumb some members of the anti-marijuana community are. Michael Brown was not a &lsquo;black thug.&rsquo; Trayvon Martin&rsquo;s murder was not the result of his marijuana consumption, it was the result of a man shooting him. &lsquo;It may be too early to draw a direct connection between jihad, marijuana, and mass murder&hellip;&rsquo; No sh#t Sherlock. It&rsquo;s not just &lsquo;too early,&rsquo; as there&rsquo;s no correlation between marijuana and people getting murdered or murdering others. Mr. Kincaid&rsquo;s article is inaccurate, offensive, and I hope that all TWB readers contact him and let them know what they think of his reefer madness. Shame on you Mr. Kincaid.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.theweedblog.com/marijuana-opponent-tries-to-tie-marijuana-to-terrorism/" target="_blank">http://www.theweedblog.com/marijuana-opponent-tries-to-tie-marijuana-to-terrorism/</a></div> Black Cherry Soda - Indica http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/black-cherry-soda-indica <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3807_3.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="black-cherry-soda-indica" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3807_3.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 479px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/6394_3807_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="black-cherry-soda-weed" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/6394_3807_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_3807_2.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="black-cherry-soda-weed-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3807_2.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 602px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3807_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="black-cherry-soda-weed-4" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3807_1.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 600px; 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/black_cherry_soda" target="_blank">Black Cherry Soda - Indica</a></span></span></strong></p> Could Cannabis Treat Degenerative Brain Disorders http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/could-cannabis-treat-degenerative-brain-disorders <p style="text-align: center;"> <img alt="cannabis-and-brain-disorders" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/could-cannabis-treat-Degenerative Brain Disorders.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 161px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></p> <div> Could Cannabis Treat Sports Injuries?</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Professional athletes suffer from a multitude of injuries in their careers. Everything from broken ankles to fractured skulls to severe concussions, these people get hit hard. Professional football players have been shown to develop certain illnesses later in life that effect their motor skills and memory.&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The most common diagnosis for sports players is Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, also known at CTE. This degenerative brain ailment is found in professional sports players, as well as Hepatic Encephalopathy (HE). HE is a loss of brain function due to liver disease. This results from the pain pills that are given to athletes in order to help with other ailments. Marvin Washington, a former NFL player and a spokesperson for the company funding athlete research, KannaLife, backs the search for CBD based treatments as an alternative to the &ldquo;traditional&rdquo; ones. &ldquo;The pain pills they&rsquo;re taking now, I think they&rsquo;re heavy on your lungs and kidneys. They can eat the lining up out of your stomach,&rdquo; Washington said.&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The company KannaLife has signed a license with the National Institutes of Health in order to develop treatments. These new ideas will be up for the Food and Drug Administration approval within three to five years, hopefully in time to save a few brain cells and livers from the damage that sports lead to. KannaLife isn&rsquo;t going to limit it&rsquo;s reach though. They&rsquo;re not looking to help only athletes but all patients with degenerative brain diseases.&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> A study recently published in the journal Biochemical Society Transactions and published at the National Institute Of Heath has found that the brain&rsquo;s endocannabinoid system has neuroprotective and immunomodulatory capabilities. Not only that but the use of cannabis may lead to the growth of stem cells. This information could really benefit those suffering from all different kinds of degenerative brain disorders.&nbsp;</div> Afghani - Indica http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/afghani-indica-1 <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_2506_6.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="Afghani-weed" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_2506_6.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_2506_3.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="afghani-weed-2" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_2506_3.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 113px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_2506_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="afghani-weed-3" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_2506_1.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_2506_2.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="afghani-weed-4" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_2506_2.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 113px; 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/afghani" target="_blank">Afghani - Indica</a></span></span></strong></p> Medicated Banana Shake Recipe http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2014/10/medicated-banana-shake-recipe <div style="text-align: center;"> <img alt="medicated-banana-shake-recipe" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/uploads/files/medicated-banana-shake-recipe.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 450px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></div> <div> Even though the cold weather is coming, people still crave some chilly beverages. And we all know that bananas are delicious. As well as milkshakes. People love milkshakes. What&rsquo;s better tasting when you&rsquo;re stoned than a milkshake from McDonalds? While this shake is a bit more healthy than the stuff you can get from the drive through, it is medicated and will surely give you a nice buzz. Keep in mind that for this recipe, you will need THC infused milk, which is very easy to make and that recipe is also on the THCFinder website for your convenience!</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> What You&rsquo;ll Need;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 1 large scoop of ice cream</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 2 cups of THC milk</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 1 apple</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 3 small bananas</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The recipe is incredibly easy! First, take your apple and peel it. After it&rsquo;s peeled, be sure to core it and remove all of the seeds. Once you&rsquo;ve prepared the apple, peel the bananas as well. Take most of your ingredients (except for the milk and ice cream) and place them in a blender for 30 seconds or until the mixture is smoothly blended. Add in the ice cream and the milk. Mix everything together with a spoon until it is the right consistency. You can also blend again for another 30 seconds if you wish. Pour the mixture in to a glass and top with whipped cream, nuts, and a cherry. Drink slowly, as to not get a brain freeze, and enjoy the awesome feeling you get from this amazing drink!</div>
