Colorado Governor Calls For Over $7 Million To Fund Marijuana-Related Research

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
calling-for-mj-moneyIn his 2014 budget proposal Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper is calling for over $7 million in funding for “legitimate” studies examining the medical benefits of cannabis. Under the proposal, grants sized between $500,000 and $1 million would be distributed to universities, research hospitals, foundations and so forth, in order to study cannabis’ effect on conditions such as epilepsy, and post-traumatic stress disorder..
 
“The impetus is that we have about $13 million in the Medical Marijuana [Program] Cash Fund, and it needs to be used for purposes that relate to the people who paid for their medical-marijuana cards,” says Henry Sobanet, Director of the Governor’s Office of State Planning and Budgeting. “And the impetus really was that now there appears to be ways where legitimate research can be conducted on the use of cannabis or marijuana for medical purposes.”
 
If the state’s legislature approves this portion of the budget, the program – which consists of a full time administrator to oversee grant distribution – will begin in July of next year.

Green Is Green

green-is-green-mbotwinMost stoners work hard to make the money that lines their pockets. The economy in America is rough and not all countries are financially stable so the way that people make money varies. Some stick to the traditional jobs. A 9am-5pm, maybe? Or it seems that smokers tend to gravitate towards service industry jobs and wind up being a server or a bartender. Even then, there are some that don't get those jobs and have resorted to selling marijuana in order to make their way in the world.
 
It's not just in America that this issue is apparent.  Nigerian fisherman named Yoto Seibokuro, 27, was arrested with six other people for dealing marijuana. Seibokuro stated in his newspaper interview that he started selling cannabis in order to support himself. when the income from fishing just wasn't cutting it when it came time to put food on the table for the man's large family. Since cannabis is so easily renewed, selling it can be an extremely good way to make money when there's no jobs available.
 
If you can't get a job to support yourself, there's a strong chance that just giving up and living in your car is not an option. Most people would never even consider letting it get that bad. Selling marijuana is a fast and easy way to make money and people will take advantage of that. Money and bud are both green. Smart people know that. When all other options have been exhausted, what exactly is a person going to do? Cannabis, while having a lower street value than most other illegal substances, isn't as dangerous as other drugs. Plus it's medical value allows the seller to not feel guilty about giving the plant to others.
 
It's amusing to think that the government shuns cannabis when there are so many people that are profiting from it. People make their lives around cannabis and use it to feed their children. With so few options and the cost of living going up every day, how are people supposed to survive? Resorting to selling cannabis is an easy way out, providing you're located in a place that doesn't allow easy marijuana access. While the risks associated with selling marijuana are high, people are willing to risk their freedom in order to provide for their families.
