The officers contended they were justified in searching the vehicle because Vasquez was a citizen of Colorado driving on I-70, a &ldquo;known drug corridor,&rdquo; in a recently purchased, older-model car. They said he also seemed nervous.</p> <p class="ap-story-p" 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/laws/court-out-of-state-license-plates-dont-justify-search/">http://hightimes.com/news/laws/court-out-of-state-license-plates-dont-justify-search/</a></p> Pineapple Express - Stoner Kids http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2016/08/pineapple-express-stoner-kids <p style="text-align: center;"> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="244" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/JTTi2bAMQyo" width="433"></iframe></p> Bubblegum (Indica) http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2016/08/bubblegum-indica-8 <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/101519_3500_4.jpg"><img alt="" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/101519_3500_4.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/60539_3500_5.jpg"><img alt="" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/60539_3500_5.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3500_1.jpg"><img alt="" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3500_1.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 100px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strains/indica/bubblegum"><strong>Bubblegum (Indica)</strong></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strains/indica/bubblegum"><span style="color: rgb(125, 125, 125); font-family: &quot;Trebuchet MS&quot;, sans-serif;">The Bubble Gum originated in Indiana in the 1970s. After making the rounds in the States, the genetics were taken to Holland during the 1990s, where a stable interbred variety was developed. Named Bubble Gum from the start, this variety quickly acquired a reputation for its sweetness, so much that the name &quot;Bubble Gum&quot; has been widely borrowed for all sorts of seeds and weed. The winner of many accolades, Bubble Gum has placed repeatedly in the High Times Cannabis Cup: 3rd place in 1994 for best coffeeshop product, 2nd place for best bioproduct and 2nd for the overall Cannabis Cup in 1995, and 2nd place again in 1999 for the overall Cannabis Cup.</span></a></p> City of Portland Cannabis Tax To Benefit Local Communities of Color http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2016/08/city-of-portland-cannabis-tax-to-benefit-local-communities-of-color <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://cdn1.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/portland-or.jpg"><img alt="" src="http://cdn1.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/portland-or.jpg" style="width: 400px; height: 400px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p class="p1" 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: 25.6px;"> <span class="s1" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px;">PORTLAND, OR (Aug, 2016) &ndash; On November 8, 2016, Portland City voters will vote on&nbsp;</span><span class="s1" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px;">the allocation of 3% of recreational marijuana sales tax to a number of causes, including&nbsp;</span><span class="s1" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px;">the support of minority owned businesses and communities of color.&nbsp;</span><span class="s1" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px;">The current state tax on recreational marijuana sales is 25%.

If the vote passes, it will be the first time this type of cannabis tax appropriation to communities of color will be implemented in the U.S. This is extremely important and appropriate, because statistics show that people of color, especially African American men, have born the brunt of prohibition enforcement. A study from the ACLU shows that blacks are arrested at up to 8 times the amount of whites for cannabis possession, despite nearly identical consumption rates. The comparative length of prisons sentences is also dramatically higher as well. This has had detrimental effects on targeted neighborhoods.</span></p> <p class="p1" 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: 25.6px;"> Read More:<a href="http://www.theweedblog.com/city-of-portland-cannabis-tax-to-benefit-local-communities-of-color/">http://www.theweedblog.com/city-of-portland-cannabis-tax-to-benefit-local-communities-of-color/</a></p> Blue Widow (Indica) http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2016/08/blue-widow-indica-10 <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3498_1.jpg"><img alt="" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3498_1.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 600px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/81645_3498_2.jpg"><img alt="" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/81645_3498_2.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a><a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3498_2.jpg"><img alt="" src="http://www.thcfinder.com/strainimg/3_3498_2.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 83px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strains/indica/blue_widow"><strong>Blue Widow (Indica)</strong></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.thcfinder.com/strains/indica/blue_widow"><span style="color: rgb(125, 125, 125); font-family: &quot;Trebuchet MS&quot;, sans-serif;">Blue Widow is Blueberry crossed with White Widow.

The heat from a hot cup of tea or coffee activates special receptors on you tongue that detect heat.

This cooling response lowers you body temperature more than the hot drink heats it up. In a similar way chili peppers also activate TRPV1 receptors and cause the same cooling response.</p> <p 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);"> For this reason hot drinks must have become popular in tropical climates like India where people drink cup after cup of hot tea and eat some of the spiciest foods in the world.

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></a></p>
