New Mexico Employers Discriminating Against Patients?

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, August, 14th 2014 by THCFinder

The older you get, the less worried you become about things like epilepsy, seeing as how disorders like that tend to develop earlier in life. This wasn't the case for Robert Pack, a manager of ticketing and audience services at the Monterrey Symphony Orchestra located in Carmel, California. It was at this time as a manager that Pack discovered that he had adult onset epilepsy after he had a seizure at work one day.
 
Of course, Pack was immediately prescribed multiple medications, non of which seemed to work except one. This particular drug gave Pack severe nausea, extremely bad anxiety, and insomnia. These effects began to have a toll and Pack's doctor recommended utilizing the cannabis plant in order to stem the bad side effects. When Pack started using marijuana, he noticed an incredible difference in how he felt. "Let me just say that cannabis is the absolute best anti nausea medication in the world. Absolutely the best. It immediately mitigated the nausea. It immediately took care of the anxiety and my appetite improved. It became more normal," he says. Pack used cannabis twice a day, every day without fail, since then. And because he lived in California, he was a medical marijuana patient. But he still didn't inform his employer of this new medicine and instead, kept it quiet while he wrestled with his health issues.
 
When Pack's mother died, he was driven back to Carlsbad, New Mexico where he was offered a job at Hastings bookstore as an assistant manager. The catch? He had to pass a drug test. But when Pack informed the regional management at Hastings about his medication, they didn't really say anything other than to go ahead and take the test. "They were kind of giving me the wink to go and get a masking kit and cover it up," Pack said. But as a proud medical marijuana patient, he didn't want to cover up his cannabis use. So he failed the test. "They withdrew the job offer because I did test positive for cannabis use and I pointed out to them that New Mexico was a legal state that didn't matter. I pointed out to them that I had no criminal record. That didn't matter. My work record. My experience. None of that mattered," he stated.
 
There are five states in the US that have implemented laws against employers discriminating against cannabis using patients. New Mexico still hasn't put those laws in to place. For now, Pack has retired but not by choice. He refuses to stand down and lives off of the family farm. He spends the majority of his time advocating employee rights in New Mexico, working to get employers to accept the medical marijuana users in to the empty jobs. It's sad to see patients be so discriminated against and hopefully, the laws adapt soon to protect patients from terrible employers that just don't seem to care

Five Heroic Stoners In Movies

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, August, 13th 2014 by THCFinder

Stoners are pretty much always portrayed as lazy bums. Even though we've been pushing the successful stoner idea for years, people still think we're just sitting around eating chips and watching cartoons. I mean, we like to do that more than most people but we still get shit done as well. Stoners should be recognized for their incredible efforts, especially in the film world. While most people see some goofy comedy, us potheads understand the stoner struggle and the challenges that come with being a pothead.
 
1. The Half Baked Trio
The guys from Half Baked should be honored for their efforts! Their friend gets taken off to jail and these three friends create a super elaborate plan to bust him out. They get the plan set up, put it in to action, and get it done, managing to not only get their friend out of jail but accomplish basically every goal for each of the friends. Hell yeah, you potheads.
 
2. Pineapple Express
Staying high and busting the bad guys? Seems legit and Seth Rogan and James Franco nailed it in this flick. Plus, the added hilarity of Danny McBride? The two start off as just dealer-buyer and end up being best buds by the end of the film, having stayed stoned and (mostly) safe throughout the entire movie. They get rid of the bad guys and even McBride makes it out alive... Kind of.
 
3. Cabin In The Woods
In this creepy, brutal, gore filled horror, Fran Kranz plays a "typical" stoner. He becomes dismissed about halfway through the film and you think that his witty comments are at an end but he reappears later, killing monsters like a boss. Since the end of the world is inevitable, there's no "day saved" moment for this pothead. But he proved to the masses that the dumb stoner isn't always the first one to die and may actually be the smartest one in the group.
 
4. Scooby & Shaggy
They may not seem that heroic but they definitely do help out a lot. Even though they spend a lot of time eating their munchies, they still work hard with the group to track down the bad guys. A scruffy hippy and a talking dog are an odd duo but they seem to work out pretty damn good.
 
5. How High
Silas P. Silas and Jamal King bust their asses to get through college... Kind of. They are pretty smart and manage to outdo all of their rivals, managing to even plant weed that can make you see dead people. I definitely haven't tried that strain yet... But these two guys are definitely hardworking to say the least and manage to provide a comedic laugh in there as well.

When Will Florida Legalize Recreational Marijuana?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, August, 13th 2014 by THCFinder
florida-and-recreational-cannabisOn Election Day 2014, Florida voters will get the chance to legalize medical marijuana. Because the initiative is a constitutional amendment, the initiative will need at least 60% of voters to vote ‘yes.’ The battle in Florida has been fierce, with both sides raising millions of dollars. Polls show that the initiative is winning, but polls don’t always translate to reality on Election Day. However, I’m confident that victory will be achieved in Florida in November.
 
With marijuana reform on people’s minds in Florida, a question that I get quite a bit these days is ‘when will Florida legalize recreational marijuana?’ Unlike states like Texas and New York, Florida has an initiative process which boosts the odds of full legalization. States that have to rely solely on their legislatures to approve legalization face a much tougher fight. But just because Florida has an initiative process doesn’t mean it’s a slam dunk that legalization will happen soon.
 
Florida’s initiative process, and what it takes to win on Election Day, is one of the toughest in the nation. In order to qualify an initiative for the upcoming election, organizers have to get enough valid signatures to equal at least 8% of the last Presidential vote in Florida. For the 2014 Election, this worked out to 683,149 signatures. And considering that not every signature is valid, a campaign would have to gather significantly more than that to ensure there are enough to survive the verification process. That’s a ton of signatures. Compare that to my home state of Oregon, which requires less than 90,000.
 
To make matters even tougher in Florida, there are district requirements for where signatures have to be gathered from. For the 2014 election, at least 68,314 valid signatures had to have been gathered from at least 7 different Congressional districts. Compare that to my home state of Oregon, where signatures can be gathered from anywhere in the state. It makes it much tougher to meet initiative qualification requirements. It’s hard to find seven different parts of any state that are sympathetic to a political cause, marijuana or otherwise.
 
But there is good news for Florida. Signature requirements are tough in the state, but the 2014 medical marijuana effort proves that it can be done for marijuana reform. Also, the 2014 medical marijuana campaign has shown that there is significant financial support for a marijuana reform campaign. Last I heard the campaign had raised over five million dollars, which is a very large amount for a campaign.
 
The last poll I saw from Florida showed 55% support for legalization. That’s enough for almost any other state to get funders on board, however, because Florida requires a 60% ‘yes’ vote, it could signal that Florida may have to wait until polling shows even higher support. Due to the signature gathering requirements, polling, and the 60% ‘yes’ vote requirement, I think Florida may not be a sure shot for 2016. 2018 is a mid-term election year, which is hard to get funders and organizations on board with. I think Florida’s best bet for legalization is 2020, but I’m hopeful that federal reform will have been acheived by then, which would make a Florida legalization effort unnecessary. I would LOVE to be wrong about 2016, but I think Florida will have to wait awhile before recreational legalization becomes a reality there.
