Why People Don't Believe In Cannabis

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, December, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
why-people-dont-believe-in-cannabisAside from the fact that people have been continuously brainwashed, medical marijuana is a very tough medicine to back up. It's getting easier, as more states want to make the plant legal. However, it's extremely difficult to prove the validity of medical marijuana if there aren't enough medical studies presented to make people believe that the plant is an amazing medicine and cure for many of the disease and illnesses that exist in the world today.
 
The media is a very powerful aspect of our society. Anti-cannabis propaganda has been blasted on TV, radio, and in magazines since the plant became illegal. Some are immune to the message that these ads portray, wile others aren't so lucky. They are totally susceptible to the messages that cannabis is a negative thing. Since they believe everything that they're told, the ability to accept that a negative may be a positive when used in the correct context. Another example of this is the swastika. While most associate that symbol with Nazi Germany, it has been used as a positive symbol for far longer. More specifically used by Hindu and Buddhist religions. The symbol literally translates in to "it is good". But since the symbol was adopted by such a negative party, it is always associated with negativity.
 
It is unfortunate that marijuana, like the swastika, is grouped in to this dark category. But without the ability to think for themselves, the people really don't know any better. With the plant being illegal, there is very little opportunity for medical studies to be conducted. Since medical institutions can't really research federally illegal substances, it's extremely difficult to get information about the benefits of cannabis. Thankfully, there is more information being gathered, studied, and released.
 
So between the fact that the majority of people are brainwashed and that marijuana has always been grouped as a negative thing (Besides the good old days where you had to grow hemp or it was punishable by law), people just don't believe. But as stated above, cannabis is beginning to make a serious splash. More studies means an easier time convincing the non-smokers that we're not just super stoned. We have medical studies, scientific studies, and enlightened minds. There should be no reason that people can deny the powers of cannabis.

Cannabis Can Treat Osteoarthritis

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, December, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-can-treat-osteoarthritis
A new study published in the journal PLOS One, as well as by the National Institute of Health, has found strong evidence that activation of our body’s cannabinoid receptors – something done naturally by cannabis – can treat osteoarthritis (OA), which, according to the study’s researchers, is “a prevalent disease accompanied by chronic, debilitating pain”. It’s the most common joint disorder.
 
While studying the effects of cannabinoid receptor activation on OA-related pain, researchers found “new clinically relevant evidence that joint damage and spinal CB2 receptor expression are correlated combined with converging pre-clinical evidence that activation of CB2 receptors inhibits central sensitization and its contribution to the manifestation of chronic OA pain.”
 
They conclude that; “These findings suggest that targeting CB2 receptors may have therapeutic potential for treating OA pain.”
 
The study was funded by Arthritis Research U.K., as well as the National Institute of Health.

How Authorities Plan To Find Pot

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, December, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
how-they-plan-to-find-weedThe authorities seem to have a real issue coming up with ideas of how to catch those who indulge in smoking the reefer. From sobriety checkpoints to drug sniffing dogs, nothing really seems to work that well for them. Now this new method of tracking down bud smokers is a little odd but apparently, seems to be all the rave in order to catch smokers. This invention is called the Nasal Ranger and allegedly can track down a pot smoker in a public place.
 
This device is placed over the user's nose and detects the potency of certain odors, like pot. The Nasal Ranger (Am I the only one that laughs at the name?) produces an odorous baseline gas that compares unwanted odors to itself, thus allowing the user to figure out how near or far the odor actually is. Not only that, but this tricky little machine comes with a tool to calibrate itself to different "sniffers". Pretty crazy right?
 
If a stoner gets busted smoking in a public place, the fines reach up to $2,000. This includes states such as Colorado, where it is illegal to smoke in public places. Authorities seem to think that by using the Nasal Rangers, they can keep public pot use to a minimum. Possible, but have they really taken the vaporizers in to consideration? And why is it not allowed to smoke pot in public but people can rip cigarettes where ever and whenever they want. At least marijuana smoke smells far better than the awful smell of cigarettes.
 
Smoking in public should not be a worry of the authorities. There are other things that could be bought with the money that will be poured in to supplying police departments with the Nasal Ranger. While it is quite a funny contraption, they're not cheap. As they develop more, the price tag will probably increase, which is another factor to take in to consideration. Whatever the case, if you're smoking in public, it's best to carry a smoke buddy or spoof with you. I realize that this resorts us back to being 16 years old in our parents house but it is what it is! Stay sneaky, my fellow stoners!
