Uncle Sam Spends $715,000 on Marijuana App

In an effort to convince the youth of America that continued prohibition is in the interest of public health, the federal government is now paying researchers to develop an app that persuades kids to work out rather than smoke weed.
 
The National Institutes of Health recently awarded a $715,000 grant to the University of New York at Buffalo to begin working on study cleverly titled “Use of exercise to reduce young adult marijuana use there is an app for that.” The goal of this research is to create a smartphone app that appeals to the teenage wasteland and encourages them to get into physical fitness as an alternative to getting stoned.
 
Despite marijuana being legal for medicinal and recreational purposes in half the United States, Uncle Sam remains driven to convince the public that weed is turning kids into out-of-control marijuana addicts. “Currently, marijuana (MJ) is the most popular illicit drug, with prevalence studies indicating increasing use among young adults,” according to NIH’s project information. “Even so, there are few effective interventions to help MJ users reduce their intake to avoid negative consequences, including MJ dependence.”
 
Not surprisingly, federal lab rats have found evidence that suggests marijuana cravings can be hindered with moderate exercise. “Our research also has shown that short (i.e., 10 minute) bouts of moderate or intense exercise reduce craving/urges to use MJ,” writes the NIH. “Exercise interventions have successfully reduced use of licit substances, such as tobacco and alcohol, but have not been adequately tested for MJ use.”
 
Last year, R. Lorraine Collins, PhD, who has been assigned to lead this waste of tax dollars, said, “This newest NIDA grant to develop the smart phone app has evolved out of our use of cell phones to collect data in real time, as well as our plan to develop an effective intervention that can make a difference in the lives of young people who want to cut down on their marijuana use.”
 
Ultimately, researchers are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to research and develop a useless smartphone app aimed at curbing marijuana addiction, a disease, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, that only effects nine percent of its users.

Strawberry Kush - Indica

Strawberry Kush (Strawberry Cough x OG Kush) is a California sensation and a growers dream as the OG Kush helps to hulk out the notoriously finicky and low yielding Strawberry Cough. The smell is very fruity (like Strawberries) with earthy and chemy overtones from the OG. The taste of more typical of Chemdawg, with a fruity aftertaste. The effect is a very uplifting sativa high.

Judge Refuses To Jail Cancer Patient For Growing Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, September, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
judge-refuses-to-jail-patient-for-growing-marijuanaCancer is a very horrible thing. My step father is currently suffering from cancer, and it hurts my heart more than words can express. He beat cancer once four years ago, and I’m confident that he will beat it again. Marijuana has been a very helpful thing for him and his fight. It helps him deal with his ailments and helps him eat, which are both very important things.
 
A cancer patient in the UK was caught growing marijuana for the second time and faced criminal charges as a result. However, I’m happy to say that the judge has refused to jail the cancer patient. Per Mirror:
 
A judge today refused to jail a cancer victim who has twice been caught growing cannabis – saying he would ‘not be able to live with himself’ if he locked him up.
 
Jonathan Yates, 65, whose throat has been badly damaged by radiation treatment for tongue cancer, says cannabis is the only effective pain killer he can find.
 
Although he was caught cultivating the drug in 2011 he went on growing it in his home in Brockworth, Gloucester, and was arrested again in April.
 
I wish every judge was like the one in this story. No one should ever have to go to jail for marijuana, especially someone who is growing it to help treat their cancer. My heart goes out to Mr. Yates. I hope that he is able to beat his cancer, and can continue to find pain relief in the marijuana plant.

Florida mom to treat child with medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, September, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
florida-mom-to-treat-child-with-medical-cannabisTAMPA – A Bay area mother will start treating her cancer-ravaged daughter with whole plant medical marijuana even though we are two months away from the amendment two vote.
 
10 Newstold you earlier this year how Moriah Barnhart sought legal counsel to somehow get her daughter access to use medical cannabis under Florida's medical necessity doctrine based on a 1991 ruling.
 
Barnhart said she had success while treating her daughter with cannabis in Colorado, but decided to move back to Florida to be closer to family and her support system.
 
In Jenks v. The State of Florida, the court ruled that patients suffering debilitating diseases have the right to consume, possess and cultivate marijuana, provided they can establish they have a legal medical necessity.
 
Recently, Barnhart and Christopher Ralph from Health Law Services in Jacksonville shows us the paperwork issued by a physician who evaluated Dahlia Barnhart and deemed medical marijuana a necessity.
 
"I'm not in any way shape or form uneasy about the law," said Barnhart. "The process for me is easy with regards to the paperwork."
 
According to Ralph, she will have to carry the paperwork with her at all times.
 
It includes information from the doctor, details on the Jenks v. State of Florida ruling and an identification number for law enforcement to verify its authenticity via a website.
 
"Our statutes allow for a physician to order the use of a schedule one controlled substance," said Ralph.
 
Earlier this year, state lawmakers legalized a non-euphoric strain of marijuana called Charlotte's Web.
 
Ralph says for that reason, he is not in full support of amendment two.
 
"Once amendment 2 passes, all we're going to have is low-THC cannabis run by 5 organizations throughout the state," he said. "Which was preempted by our current legislature… that's what they did because they didn't want amendment 2 to pass."

Lemon Kush - Hybrid

Lemon Kush is an amazing strain known for excellent flavors, especially when grown organically. The breeder remains mysterious, but there is nothing to be questioned about these dense, frosted buds that provide a long-lasting, lung-destroying high. This bud is a cross of Master Kush and Lemon Joy, providing a potent indica-dominant effect.
