BARRY, Ill. - A 75,000 square foot medical marijuana manufacturing and research facility is one week away from growing marijuana and studying the science behind the cannabis.
Revolution Industries CEO Tim McGraw called it the most sophisticated, technologically advanced facility in the world. It's two hours from St. Louis, in a small town of 1400 people called Barry, Illinois.
A long winding road takes you up to the edge of the cornfields that sit across from the warehouse like building. The owners of this cultivation center believe they're in place where progress meets a purpose.
"I never thought I would see this day" said Brenda Partridge.
She cried and clapped as McGraw addressed the crowd.
"43,000 Americans died from pharmaceutical overdoses, and 22 veterans commit suicide everyday," because he said, they were prescribed anti depressants and opiates.

Why Does Cannabis Cause You To Dream Less?

Category: Odd | Posted on Sat, August, 15th 2015 by THCFinder

It is known that cannabis is effective in helping individuals that suffer from insomnia; of the many medicinal applications of cannabis, sleep aid is certainly one of them. What is strange, however, is that many of those that use cannabis as a regular sleep aid report having a loss of dream activity or an inability recollect any dreams at all. Considering the normal effects of marijuana on normal, waking consciousness, why is it that the dream state is dulled while sleeping under its effects? 
To address the question of marijuana effecting REM sleep, “Feinberg, et al. (1975) compared the sleep patterns of experienced marijuana users on tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and a placebo. Feinberg, et al. (1975) reported reduced eye movement activity and less REM sleep in the THC condition. They also reported a REM rebound effect, that is more REM activity, on withdrawal from THC. So,there exists some scientific evidence that marijuana interferes with REM sleep.”  
REM sleep is the stage of sleeping where our dreams occur and our brain begins to function almost as if you're awake, only your surroundings are produced by your mind. These dream states, when experienced excessively, can exhaust the mind much like normal consciousness, which results in grogginess after waking even after a sufficient night of sleep. When cannabis is used as a sleep aid, it drastically reduces the time spent in the REM stage of sleep and actually lengthens the time spent in deep sleep or the slow wave sleep stage. In this deep stage of sleep, the body is able to devote itself to healing and rejuvenating from the physical and emotional exhaustion of the day before. 


Rauner uses veto to call for changes to marijuana decriminalization bill

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 15th 2015 by THCFinder

Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner on Friday used his veto powers to rewrite a bill aimed at decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana, saying the measure that lawmakers sent him would let people carry too much pot and sets fines too low.
Rauner said while he supports the "fundamental purposes" of keeping people out of jail and cutting court costs, such a significant change in drug laws "must be made carefully and incrementally." Sponsors of the bill pushed back, saying the changes are "low-hanging fruit" when it comes to reforming the criminal justice system and contending the governor is working against his own goal of reducing the number of prison inmates.
Under the proposal, people caught with up to 15 grams of marijuana — about the equivalent of 25 cigarette-sized joints — would not go to court but instead receive fines ranging from $55 to $125. Rauner said those standards were too lax and the threshold should be lowered to 10 grams and fines should range from $100 to $200.
