Alaska Might Become The Third State To Legalize Marijuana
Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, January, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana In Alaska turned in roughly 46,000 signatures this week to put marijuana legalization on the 2014 ballot. At least 30,169 of those signatures would have to be valid in order for the initiative to gain ballot access. That’s not an unheard of validation rate, but then again it’s not exactly low either. It should be enough to get approval, but only time will tell.
If the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana in Alaska gets past the validation hurdle, Alaska voters would get the chance to make Alaska the third state to legalize marijuana, joining Colorado and Washington State. There are many other states trying to be lucky number three, however, since Alaska’s primary is in August, it would get the chance to vote before other states that also get marijuana legalization on the ballot.
Alaska has a great shot at winning on Election Day, since demographics are very friendly up there for marijuana reform. Alaska has the youngest population of any state by far, and younger voters are much more likely to support marijuana legalization. From what I’ve been told by friends that have lived in Alaska, the attitude up there is ripe for reform. Below is a summary of the initiative, taken from the campaign’s website:

Strain Review; Love Potion
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, January, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
Even the name of this strain of weed is enough to interest people. Love Potion is a sativa strain that carries a sickly sweet pine smell with it, with large dank nugs that are extremely sticky. While the price that it carries may be slightly more than what people want to pay, this strain has an extremely high rating from everyone who dares to smoke it. And dare you shall. This sativa is extremely potent and not for the novice stoner.
Those that smoke Love Potion report a very pleasurable visual experience, as well as the sharpening of certain senses. This is a very good strain for people to listen to music to. Artists will absolutely love this strain, as it drastically increases the creativity needed to make a masterpiece. Along with the intense creativity aspect, LP gives the user a very uplighting feeling, pretty euphoric actually and can provide a great escape for a bad day sufferer. However, those suffering from depression and anxiety should stay away from the Love Potion, as the emotional effect is intense.
With such positive effects, Love Potion would be very good mixed with a heavy indica for those in pain but still need to function throughout the day. As said above, it's also good for those who need that added creative boost, perhaps for a paper or to get a big project done. Whatever the case, this strain will lift your spirits and your mind so that the bummers of every day life won't seem as bad. Highly recommended by THCFinder!

New York Next For Legalization?
Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, January, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
The state of New York has been under the watchful eye of the stoner community for a while, since the battle for legal cannabis has been going back and forth here for a while now. The governor is currently drawing up plans for a legalization bill that would make NY the third (or fourth depending on how you take Portland, ME) place in the US to legalize the plant.
Andrew Cuomo, the current Democratic governor in NY is working on allowing the plant to be used for medical purposes, in hospitals all over the state. Although the plant will be allowed for medical purposes, it's not expected that NY follow Colorado in the recreational aspect, keeping the plant only for medical benefits. Of course, we all know that that's how the process begins. Decriminalization, medical legalization, recreational legalization. Plus, the patients that really need the plant will have access to a natural, less dangerous kind of medicine.
If passed, cannabis would be used in twenty hospitals statewide to treat serious illnesses such as cancer and glaucoma. Even the proposition of this measure is shocking, considering that New York has one of the highest possession charge rates, charging 450,000 people between the years of 2002 and 2012. That's a lot of people in trouble just for possessing marijuana.
The most worried about aspect of the cannabis legalization is driving while under the influence, as there's a great deal of controversy on this subject. Of course, it seems that no one wants to spotlight the studies that are being released. Specifically one titled "Medical Marijuana Laws, Traffic Fatalities, and Alcohol Consumption", done by two gentlemen in November of 2011, shows that a higher marijuana consumption rate among adults led to a decrease in alcohol related traffic incidents in states that have allowed medical marijuana. This study alone should be enough to convince people that there is a definitely higher level of safety when it comes to driving while under the influence of marijuana. However, there have been others done to prove that driving while stoned is as dangerous as driving while taking allergy medicines.
It is looking like New York will be the next state to permit medical marijuana. As said above, this is definitely a step in the right direction and can only bring a positive change in this state. Patients will now get the medicine that they need in order to feel/get better and we will be one step closer to marijuana legalization in every state in the country.
