DOJ Restricted From Interfering With Medical Cannabis

DOJ Restricted From Interfering With Cannabis
 
It's enraging for stoners to see their friends, family, and fellow smokers to get thrown in jail for simply enjoying a plant. There's nothing wrong with utilizing nature... Why are people getting so severely punished for it? It's definitely not fair and definitely needs to change. This week was a great one for medical cannabis patients everywhere, providing that the House vote is respected by the people conducting these ridiculous raids.
 
The US House Of Representatives spent the majority of a day debating this subject, not leaving until after midnight. But the lower chamber of Congress changed the game when they cast their vote of 219 to 189 in favor of restricting the Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Administration from using taxpayer money in order to interfere with the state-approved medical marijuana programs. Erik Altieri of NORML Communications said that "the approval of this amendment is a resounding victor for basic compassion and common sense". Patients can now rest with a little more assurance that they'll be able to get their meds without government interference.
 
The incredibly conflicting laws between the state and federal government regarding marijuana leaves the patients in a tense situation. On one hand, they are told by their doctors that cannabis is a positive, helpful treatment for a disease that they're suffering from. But on the other, they stand to lose their entire lives because of this medicine, just because the federal government can't manage to tear themselves away from harassing sick people. The Feds should have absolutely no right to get involved with patient medicine and invading the clinics where this medicine is available is definitely an interference.
 
The amendment that passed also says that the DOJ and DEA cannot use taxpayer funds to shut down hemp operations as well. The hemp products will be state sanctioned and will drastically improve the overall wellbeing of the states that approve it. More than a dozen states have enacted pro-hemp cultivation amendments, allowing farmers to grow one of the most useful plants in the entire world.
 
The amendments still must be approved by the Senate and then signed by the President. Hopefully, they make it all the way through and the world of cannabis will begin to really change for the better.

Are Marijuana Dab Hits Safe? First Ever Scientific Review

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, June, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
taking-dabs-safeHave you ever taken a dab hit? If so, then you are not alone. Dab hits are becoming more and more popular everyday. I remember five years ago only the most dedicated marijuana fans on the West Coast and in Colorado were hip to the dab scene. Now I know people on the East Coast and all over the Midwest that can’t get enough dab hits to keep them satisfied.
 
One of the first questions people ask me when they have never taken a dab hit before is ‘are dab hits safe?’ It’s a question that was previously hard to answer because there wasn’t a solid scientific review out there. However, a recent scientific review was conducted by Mallory Loflin and Dr. Mitch Earleywine. Below is an overview of how they approached the study, and the conclusion:
 
Abstract
A new method for administering cannabinoids, called butane hash oil (“dabs”), is gaining popularity among marijuana users. Despite press reports that suggest that “dabbing” is riskier than smoking flower cannabis, no data address whether dabs users experience more problems from use than those who prefer flower cannabis.
 
Objective
The present study aimed to gather preliminary information on dabs users and test whether dabs use is associated with more problems than using flower cannabis.
 
Method
Participants (n = 357) reported on their history of cannabis use, their experience with hash oil and the process of “dabbing,” reasons for choosing “dabs” over other methods, and any problems related to both flower cannabis and butane hash oil.
 
Results
Analyses revealed that using “dabs” created no more problems or accidents than using flower cannabis. Participants did report that “dabs” led to higher tolerance and withdrawal (as defined by the participants), suggesting that the practice might be more likely to lead to symptoms of addiction or dependence.
 
Conclusions
The use of butane hash oil has spread outside of the medical marijuana community and users view it as significantly more dangerous than other forms of cannabis use.

The Cannabis Bars

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, June, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-cafes-and-bars
Most people that are looking to have fun on a Friday or Saturday night are probably going to end up at a bar. There will probably be really loud music, a lot of drinking, and a lot of people... Which may end up leading to other issues later in the night. Some people can deal with the bars and of course, drink. Stoners, on the other hand, seem to gravitate towards the more calm places. A lot of people who smoke don't actually drink, or drink very little, leaving them to either be stuck as the designated driver when they go out or leading them to not go out at all. The cannabis industry has been taking huge strides this year, leaving many stoners hopeful for a place of their own.
 
In the legal/medicinal states, there are some places that have been springing up labeled as private clubs. These establishments cater specifically to stoners. Instead of walls lined with bottles, there are walls lined with bongs and rigs, ready to be rented, hit, and enjoyed. The bartender, rather then pouring drinks all night, checks to make sure that the patrons are using the equipment correctly and safely. And while there's music and a fun atmosphere, there's far less of a chance that you'll end up in the middle of an alcohol/testosterone fueled fight. The clubs are bring your own medicine, mostly, but there are some spots in Colorado that are beginning to push the limits.
 
The law in Colorado states that there can be no public or open consumption of marijuana, while the law in Washington states that marijuana cannot be consumed in view of the public. However, like most private clubs like Elks Lodges and such allow their customers to smoke cigars and cigarettes inside and there are cannabis clubs that are following that model. As long as there's less than three employees and the club is not open to the public, cannabis can be consumed inside of it. In Washington, the loophole would be a place having an enclosed patio or blacked out windows; as long as the public can't see marijuana being consumed.
 
For the stoners that don't like to drink and party like others, the future of cannabis cafes and bars is bright. There are hundreds of entrepreneurs that are working on getting licenses to run these sorts of businesses. As the business evolves, more shops will spring up, giving the more anti-social of the stoners a chance to get out of the house and be with other, like minded people. They won't be in an environment that makes them uncomfortable, but rather a place where they'll be able to relax and unwind, much like those who enjoy having a beer after work.
