Doctor Reverts To Medieval Marijuana Arguments

There are quite a few industries that would suffer if marijuana was to become completely legal. This includes paper, gasoline, and cotton, among many others. But on industry that not many people think of (probably because most people don't see marijuana as addictive) is "Big Rehab". The groups that work to help "marijuana addicts" would suffer greatly if young kids didn't have to get sent through their rehabilitation programs and adults wouldn't have to tell everyone that they're in rehab for marijuana. If you're one of those people that constantly trolls Instagram, denying the low blows that anti-potters will throw, you should absolutely keep reading.
 
The spokesperson of the medieval marijuana movement? Doctor Stuart Gitlow, the head of the American Society for Addiction Medicine. Gitlow blasted his opinion over the CNN website, stating "but with marijuana, people can also experience long term psychiatric disease and those who use it heavily prior to age 25 are more likely than nonusers to experience a drop in IQ". Gitlow actually repeated that statement just in case we didn't understand it the first time. Basically, all he's saying is that marijuana makes you stupid, a myth that has long been thrown out of the door. Underage (18 and under) use of the plant is not recommended (and no one's really pushing for 16 year olds to start toking up anyway).
 
The credentials that Gitlow referred to weren't that solid either. He quoted a study from New Zealand that said teen pot smokers lose 8 IQ points in adulthood. But what he neglected to mention in his radical opinion piece is that the study was debunked later by a researcher who actually discovered that socioeconomic factors were the cause of the drop, not cannabis. Additionally, IQs have been on the rise since the 50s, along with the explosion of marijuana support. The only correlation that I see here is that weed is making people smarter, not more stupid.
 
"As with tobacco, a significant number of people who try marijuana will become addicted. Research says that one in six teens who start using marijuana will become addicted. Will you die young, as with tobacco? We'll have to wait a generation to find out, just as we did with tobacco. Our children will be the guinea pigs," Gitlow also babbled in his opinion piece.
 
Hold up... Marijuana smoking has been around for years and years. While celebrities like Amy Winehouse, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and Peaches Geldof overdose on drugs like heroin and cocaine, people like Cheech and Chong are still toking... Hard. Those that have stuck to that green only diet have definitely showed that smoking weed won't kill you... In fact, Chong beat prostate cancer using the plant and where have been studies released saying that there are far more health benefits to cannabis then we know as of right now.
 
Gitlow also suggested that making no money from marijuana is better than making any money, making it seem like the taxed revenue is blood money. He suggests that as a society, we will ultimately lose money in order to regulate the sale of marijuana. He compares them to alcohol and tobacco but again, I think Gitlow forgets what substances are really harmful. Alcohol and tobacco cause liver damage, lung cancer, drunk driving, deadly fires, and many other problems within society. Seeing as how Colorado and Washington haven't collapsed under the weight of the marijuana industry (maybe a little bit but only because of all the money they're raking in), it would appear that it's safe to say that Gitlow and his buddies are just genuinely worried about not getting that new Cadillac

Cops In Trouble For Destroyed Plants

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
cops-in-trouble-for-destroying-weed-plants
Cops can be real jerks when it comes to marijuana. They really enjoy nothing more then messing with completely innocent potheads who are just trying to get by. Even those that are totally and 100% compliant with state laws aren't safe from the police. Many patients risk their freedom to grow their own medicine, a right which they have voted on and passed. There should be no raids on grow operations anymore but they're still happening. Thankfully, patients are beginning to fight back and the law, for once, is on their side.
 
Cops bust down doors with battering rams, tear plants out of their pots, and break equipment during a raid. The damages that they can cause to a grow and to the premises themselves can stretch in to the millions of dollars, money that the patients want to get back. Patients who get in trouble and are then acquitted or have the charges against them dropped are fighting back with this illegal treatment and seeking the satisfaction they deserve; compensation for hard work and income spent that was destroyed by a bunch of cocky "enforcers".
 
Thanks to the new laws, cops are held accountable for the damages that they cause during raids. Now, police are a little more careful when they come storming in... Rather, walking in now. In place of the once violent "take down" tactics, some police forces are even just taking photos and taking leaf clippings as evidence of alleged "crimes" in order to avoid steep lawsuits. Legal experts everywhere say that as cannabis continues to gain support and the laws change in favor of patients and users, officials are going to have no choice but to use caution when dealing with cannabis related offenses. "Law enforcement is going to have to think more carefully about what their procedures are and how those procedures might need to change in light of change in the law," says Sam Kamin, a law professor at the University of Denver, to the Associated Press.
 
Colorado law says that police have to return all seized medical marijuana back to those who are found not guilty. This gives patients a little bit of comfort, knowing that even if the cops decide to throw weight around, they will get their compensation. At least, that is in Colorado. California is a different story, where even the court orders don't guarantee that a patient will get their hard work back after the terrible journey through the court system. There was an issue in Pasadena earlier this year where the cops refused to return $8,000 worth of medical marijuana to a man named Charles Pollard, even though the Los Angeles Superior Court ordered them to.

Hemp Could Be Used To Make Better Batteries

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
hemp-could-help-make-better-batteriesThe hemp plant never ceases to amaze me. It’s so versatile. Hemp can be used to make medicine, clothes, paper, and many other things. One thing that hemp can apparently also be used for, which is very cool and I didn’t know about, is to make better super-batteries. Per NBC:
 
Industrial hemp, the non-psychoactive cousin of marijuana, can play a role in manufacturing super-powerful supercapacitors for energy storage at a cost that’s far cheaper than graphene, researchers report. The hemp-based technology took center stage Tuesday at the American Chemical Society’s national meeting in San Francisco. A team led by David Mitlin, an engineering professor at Clarkson University, heated up hemp fibers to create carbon nanosheets that can be used as electrodes for supercapacitors. Compared with graphene, the hemp-derived carbon is “a little bit better, but it’s 1,000 times cheaper,” Mitlin told NBC News.
 
How cool is that!? Not only does hemp make better batteries, it’s far cheaper. While the article didn’t specifically state it, I’d imagine that the hemp used for the process is much safer and easier to dispose of than what is currently being used. Is there anything that hemp can’t do?
 
It sounds like the engineer behind the research has started a company trying to bring this technology to the marketplace. He is looking for partners, and I’d imagine he won’t have a hard time finding any. What he will have a hard time with, by his own admission, is getting around hemp laws which make it hard, if not impossible, to get the raw product he needs to make the super batteries. Reform hemp laws, allow this guy to make super batteries, and the world will be a much better place as a result. This is a no-brainer.
