Federal Government To Grow 30 Times More Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
fed-goverment-to-grow-30-times-more-mjThe federal government has been growing marijuana for multiple decades at the University of Mississippi. The marijuana is grown ‘for research’ and to supply four federal medical marijuana patients. The federal government also owns several patents for marijuana. The sad irony of course being that the federal government prohibits all forms of marijuana outside of their monopoly, and actively enforces marijuana prohibition, even in states that have legalized it in various forms.
 
Recently the federal government decided to ramp up production of marijuana at the University of Mississippi. And they are not just ramping it up a little, they are increasing production more than 3,000%. Per the Federal Register:
 
The DEA received one comment on the notice with request for comments. The commenter supported the adjusted 2014 aggregate production quota for marijuana. The DEA appreciates the support for this adjusted 2014 aggregate production quota for marijuana which will provide for the estimated scientific, research, and industrial needs of the United States.
 
The DEA has taken into consideration the one comment received during the 30-day period and the Administrator has determined, pursuant to Section 306 of the CSA (21 U.S.C. 826), based on all of the above, and for the reasons stated in the May 5, 2014, notice, that the adjusted established 2014 aggregate production quota for marijuana to be manufactured in the United States in 2014 to provide for the estimated scientific, research, and industrial needs of the United States, and the establishment and maintenance of reserve stocks, expressed in grams of anhydrous acid or base, shall remain as follows:
 
Previously established 2014 quota – 21,000 g. Adjusted 2014 quota – 650,000 g.
 
There isn’t a clear reason why the federal government is ramping up production. For a government who’s official stance is that marijuana doesn’t have any medical value, they sure do plan on producing a lot of marijuana for medical research. It’s beyond time to give up the sham, and reschedule marijuana, or even better, eliminate marijuana prohibition altogether.

Emmys 2014: Sarah Silverman's pot-filled e-cigarette brings marijuana into the 21st century

The world now has the munchies for Sarah Silverman.
One day after the comic showed off her pot-filled e-cigarette on the Emmys red carpet, the future of marijuana moved from the back of a VW microbus to the cutting edge of technology.
It all started in an apparently unscripted moment with E! hostess Giuliana Rancic when Silverman — in a pot colored dress, no less — revealed more than her ample cleavage.
"This is my pot," she said. "Liquid pot."
With that the internet exploded. “Live your life girl!” tweeted actress Anna Kendrick to her nearly three million followers.
It’s no surprise that Hollywood partakes of the wacky weed — after all, celebs from Cheech and Chong to Snoop Dogg to the makers of “Weeds” have been high on pot for decades — but Silverman’s choice of delivery system got everyone buzzed.
 
"Seeing her Monday night was pretty awesome," says Christian Rado, whose L.A.-based company Vaporous Technologies makes the J-Pen vaporizer that Silverman prefers.
He touted the Jetson’s-like joint because it enables pot users to openly enjoy the popular and increasingly legal recreational drug yet waft very little smoke and almost none of the tell-tale scent of ganja.
With the e-cig, he said, pot lovers don’t have to "slink off somewhere secluded."
This being Hollywood, he also put in a plug for his liquid gold: "We make a high end product for the connoisseur."
Vape pens work by heating up and vaporizing a concentrated marijuana oil that is inhaled. The results are the same — go ask a teenager what they are — as smoking, but advocates for e-cigarettes say it is much less harmful on the lungs.
 
It's also a lot more discrete — unless you pull out your vapor pen on national television. Then again, Silverman has a medical marijuana prescription, so she can ride Puff the Magic Dragon anywhere in California except public places.
That means she could have been #HAF — the internet hashtag for, well, being tagged by hash — at the Emmy Awards. Silverman denied it, but when she accepted her award for outstanding writing for a variety special, she offered a monologue straight out of “Dazed and Confused,” mentioning how “we're just all made of molecules, and we're hurling through space right now.”
Silverman is not the only celebrity whose pen is mightier than the bong.
Earlier this year, Whoopi Goldberg wrote a column for The Cannabist called "My vape pen and I, a love story."
"When I show her to a friend, the reaction 99% of the time is: 'Holy s---, where did you get this and how can I get me one?'"

Sensi Star - Indica

Sensi Star is a great indoor plant, producing powerful, resinous, and very compact buds. Although mostly indica, she retains a complex high that affects the mind as well as the body. This headstrong indica produces rock hard colas that have a lemony scent and taste. Some smokers find the buzz to be a very strong body stone, while others report a high with more energetic, cerebral properties as well as a body sensation. THC levels have been reported at 20 percent for this variety, making it a one-hitter quitter. CBD has been measured at .9 percent.

Marijuana Use Lowers Risk Of Domestic Violence In Married Couples

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, August, 26th 2014 by THCFinder
mj-lowers-domestic-violence-in-married-couplesPast research has indicated that couples who abuse substances are at a greater risk for divorce, in part because substance abuse often leads to an increase in domestic violence.
 
However, new research has found that when it comes to marijuana use, the opposite effect occurs: couples who frequently use marijuana are actually at a lower risk of partner violence.
 
Researchers from Yale University, University of Buffalo and Rutgers recruited 634 couples from 1996 to 1999 while they were applying for a marriage license in New York State. After an initial interview, the researchers followed the couples over the course of nine years using mail-in surveys to measure the effects of marijuana use on intimate partner violence (IPV).
 
The study defines IPV as acts of physical aggression, such as slapping, hitting, beating and choking, and it was measured by asking couples to report violence committed by them or toward them in the last year.
 
At the end of the first year, 37.1 percent of husbands had committed acts of domestic violence.
 
Marijuana use was measured by asking participants how often they used marijuana or hashish (defined as pot, weed, reefer, hash, hash oil or grass) in the last year. Participants were also asked about other drug use including alcohol, because, as the researchers explain the study, marijuana and alcohol are often used in conjunction.
 
What the researchers found surprised them: due to the fact that alcohol and other substances are known to increase domestic violence, they hypothesized that marijuana use would have the same effect. But that was not the case.
 
"More frequent marijuana use generally predicted less frequent IPV for both men and women over the first 9 years of marriage," the researchers wrote. Not only that, couples who both used marijuana frequently -- compared to one spouse using it more than the other -- had the lowest risk for partner violence.
 
Why would marijuana be different than other substances? Researchers hypothesize that the positive side effects of using marijuana may actually reduce conflict and aggression. They note that previous research has found chronic marijuana use to blunt emotional reactions, which could in turn decrease violent or aggressive behavior between spouses.
