United States House Passes "No Welfare For Weed" Bill

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
no-welfare-for-weedApparently the United States House of Representatives thinks there is an epidemic of people using welfare money to buy recreational marijuana. I personally haven’t heard of anyone doing it in Washington and Colorado. Welfare money is always a hot-button issue in Washington D.C. and throughout America. Late yesterday the House of Representatives passed a bill that would make it harder for people to use welfare money to buy marijuana. Per ABC News:
 
The House passed a bill Tuesday that could make it a little harder for people to use government welfare payments to buy marijuana in states where the drug is legal.
 
Supporters call it the “no welfare for weed” bill.
 
The bill would prevent people from using government-issued welfare debit cards to make purchases at stores that sell marijuana. It would also prohibit people from using the cards to withdraw cash from ATMs in those stores.
 
A 2012 federal law already prevents people from using welfare debit cards at liquor stores, casinos and strip clubs.
 
The bill is limited in that it only prevents someone from withdrawing money or making a direct purchase at a marijuana store. To get around the law, all someone has to do is withdraw money from an ATM that is not located at a marijuana store. I have a much more solid way to ensure people aren’t using welfare money to buy recreational marijuana – legalize marijuana cultivation for all Americans. If people could grow a few marijuana plants themselves, the need to buy marijuana at stores (with welfare money or otherwise) would be reduced dramatically. But I don’t think Congress will go for that. This bill targets marijuana consumers and those on welfare, two areas of American society that politicians love to go after. I don’t see them giving up on that anytime soon.

Marijuana ad campaign promotes responsible consumption

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
mj-ad-consume-responsibleA new campaign urging responsible marijuana use is being rolled out Wednesday to counter hyperbolic anti-drug advertisements of the past — which were mostly blowing smoke.
 
"Consume Responsibly" is the first-ever comprehensive public education campaign about using — and not abusing — the drug.
 
"For decades marijuana education in this country has been based on scaring adults away from using marijuana. Now that marijuana is becoming legal in states around the country, it's time for a more realistic and honest approach," Mason Tvert, a spokesman for the Marijuana Policy Project, told the Daily News.
 
MPP, the nation's largest pro-marijuana legalization group, is sparking the campaign in Denver with a billboard of a distraught woman and a warning for tourists.
 
"Don't let a candy bar ruin your vacation," it reads, alluding to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd's column about eating a bit too much of a pot candy bar in a Denver hotel.
 
People interested in trying edible marijuana products are encouraged to start with a low dose of THC and only take a small bite at first. The effects can kick in up to two hours after swallowing — but you wouldn't know that from the anti-marijuana ads from the past that were filled with scare tactics and misinformation.
 
Those advertisements — often produced by agencies are organizations dedicated to maintaining marijuana prohibition — warned that pot use will make you fry your brain, hurt your children, disappoint your dog and even support terrorists."These are essentially abstinence-only campaigns, which we know don't work when it comes to behaviors that millions of people choose to engage in," Tvert said.
 
Like many others, Dowd probably saw plenty of these zero-tolerance War on Drugs or Just Say No advertisements, but not a single one about how to safely engage in the marijuana consumption if that is one's choice as an adult in a state where the drug is legal.

Sour Grapes- Hybrid

A hybrid of Grape Ape and the legendary Sour Diesel, this strain is gaining more and more popularity. The buds are medium-sized, light-green and astonishingly coated with sticky trichromes. The aroma from these near-perfect nugs is fragrantly similar to white wine, citrus and fruit, with undertones of sour dank. The buds are somewhat fluffy and noticeably soft.

Northern Lights - Indica

Northern Lights is renowned for its ability to be grown very easily. The strain's reputation also comes from the fact that it has won competitions such as the Cannabis Cup. The #5 strain was first entered into competition 1989 when several seeds were mailed from the U.S.A. to Amsterdam. The strain quickly dominated the Cannabis Cup, winning in 1989, 1998, and again in 2009. It is a cross of Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa.

Marijuana Infused Frozen Pizza Is Every Lazy Stoners Dream Come True

Each six-inch pie is laced with 250 mg of THC
 
Earlier this year, a pizzeria in Vancouver began offering pies with pot baked into them. Genius, yes, but what about the people who want to enjoy special pizza without having to leave their homes? What about them?
 
This is where frozen weed-laced pizzas come in. Los Angeles-based company Stoned Oven Gourmet Medibles is now peddling what it calls Stoned Oven Gourmet Pizzas, LA Weekly reports. Started by 24-year-old “ganja entrepreneur” Henry Mark, the company sells these six-inch personal pizzas — which contain 250 mg of ethanol-extracted THC — to dispensaries scattered around LA for $10 each.
 
“You cannot taste one bit of marijuana in there,” Mark tells LA Weekly. “This pizza is really dangerous, because you can trick anyone!” (We do not recommend using these pizzas to trick anyone.)
 
Mark’s advice is to eat a quarter of the pizza, drink some water, wait for a half hour and then assess the situation. Might be a good idea to have some marijuana-free frozen pizzas on hand too, so you can tend to your munchies without getting even higher. Your call.
