I like to think that my home state, Oregon, is a generous state. Every place I have ever worked at has pooled together donations around the holidays to help needy families. So I was very disturbed to read about how the State of Oregon is rejecting Thanksgiving Day baskets for needy families if they come from the marijuana industry. Per Oregon Live:

Earlier this month a group of women in Oregon’s marijuana industry came up with a plan to donate baskets complete with turkeys and the fixings for a Thanksgiving Day meal for 20 needy families in Eugene.

At first, an agency employee based in the Eugene office welcomed the gift, said Lindsey Jacobsen, a founder of the group. But a few days later, the state reversed course, saying staff was spending too much time making arrangements for the gift.

“It was related to the fact that it was a marijuana-related business and the discomfort by the DHS office that it would give the appearance of some kind of endorsement,” said Gene Evans, a department spokesman.

Report: War on Drugs Creates More Bad Than Good for Children

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

While the War on Drugs has been fought for the past several decades in the name of protecting the youth of America, a recent report has found that this “What About the Children?” approach to combating the insurgence of illegal substances in the United States has all been a ruse intent on sucking kids into a cesspool of addiction and incarceration.

new report published by global drug-reform group Count the Costs reveals that 50-years worth of enforcement-based controls on illegal substances has spawned nothing but ill results. 

The report finds that in forcing the drug trade underground, Uncle Sam has enabled a sickening environment that perpetuates attitudes of discrimination and racism. To make things worse, the whole rotten system is insistent upon spending billions of taxpayer dollars to maintain this ridiculousness.

It goes on to explain that under the guise of public safety, youngsters have been sabotaged and violated by a War on Drugs, which has done nothing but promote street violence, create struggles for families and give way to a land where a non-violent criminal record can cripple any opportunity of achieving what is left of the American Dream.

Latest Studies Confirm Medical Marijuana Is Safe Long-Term

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

The latest Canadian study has confirmed that medical marijuana is a safe option – at least for those that are using it to treat chronic pain. It is, thus far, the largest study to be conducted in regards to the safety of using medical marijuana long term.

Effectively, they found that there are not really any serious adverse effects from using medical marijuana over a long period –  Canadian research gives medical marijuana a thumbs up!

“The largest study of the long-term safety of medical cannabis”

The team at Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) in Montréal, Canada, have been doing research on the long-term safety of medical marijuana. They collected together a group of 215 people with whose chronic pain they were going to treat with marijuana to use as their test group. They had a group of 216 as a control group, whose non-cancer pain was not being treated with marijuana.
