Job Opening: California Looking for Pot Czar

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

It is not your normal help wanted ad, but California Governor Jerry Brown’s office is spearheading a state-wide search by the California Department of Consumer Affairs to fill the post as head of the soon-to-be-established Bureau of Medical Marijuana Regulation (BMMR), that is, Chief of Pot, according to the Sacramento Bee.

It sounds like the dream job to get in on the ground floor of California’s push to regulate medical marijuana. And the pay is not bad either – between $115,608 to $128,808 per year.

The job will entail dealing with the interminable rules and regulations, as well as everything from writing legislation for permits for growers, sellers, and buyers, to disciplinary actions for those that don’t abide by the rules. 

The successful applicant, or pot chief, will be the face of the BMMR to the media and consumers.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made international headlines when he campaigned on a pro-marijuana platform. He continued to make headlines when he won running on the platform, and all eyes in the marijuana world have been on Canada ever since. I have heard the question, ‘when will marijuana be legalized in Canada?’ asked a lot lately. Justin Trudeau recently issued aletter giving mandates to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada. Among many mandates was the following in regards to marijuana:

Working with the Ministers of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness and Health, create a federal-provincial-territorial process that will lead to the legalization and regulation of marijuana.

I have to pinch myself every time I read it. I can’t even imagine how excited Canadian cannabis supporters are right now. Here you have a sitting Prime Minister mandating marijuana legalization as one of his first acts after taking over the job. I wish that more leaders were so sensible!

To the South, I know that many marijuana reform supporters are hoping that Bernie Sanders will follow in the same footsteps. I would say that Justin Trudeau’s mandate is actually even more progressive than Bernie Sanders’ stance, in that it mandates regulation in addition to ending prohibition. Bernie Sanders’ plan would just end federal prohibition, leaving it up to the states to decide their own marijuana policies, which is still a fantastic political position.



Weed Myth: Do Blunts Get You Higher Than Joints?

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, November, 16th 2015 by THCFinder

Because there’s no need to argue about this every time you smoke with your friends anymore, we answer the question – do blunts get you higher than joints?

There may be reasons why you feel higher when you smoke a blunt, but due to other circumstances. So it’s time that the myth was busted – there is a chemical reaction happening in your body when you smoke a blunt that does not occur with a joint. But this doesn’t necessarilymake you higher.

What’s the difference between a joint and a blunt?

There are some very key differences between a joint and a blunt that might be affecting how stoned you feel. Firstly, you would usually roll a joint with a regular paper. Sometimes you can buy papers made out of hemp, but most of the time what you are using is paper. The paper itself does not contain an intoxicating substance, and so the only thing you are consuming when you smoke it is marijuana.
