First Legal Marijuana Purchased In Seattle Donated To Museum

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, August, 20th 2014 by THCFinder
seattle-mmj-donated-to-museumLegal cannabis sales started in Washington on July 7th. The first legal purchase in Seattle was made by 65 year old grandmother Deb Greene at Cannabis City. Rather than consume some of the cannabis she purchased, Deb Green instead donated some of the cannabis to Seattle’s Museum of History and Industry. Per Time:
 
She purchased two bags of legal weed, one for personal use and another that was signed by Cannabis City owner, James Lathrop, so it could be “saved forever,” Greene told the Seattle Times. “You don’t use history.”
 
It’s pretty heartening that the Seattle museum will display cannabis, yet another demonstration that cannabis is moving out of the shadows and into the mainstream. The first legal purchase in Colorado was by a military veteran named Sean Azzariti. It is tremendous that the first purchase in Colorado was a military vet and that the first purchase in Seattle was a grandmother, not your stereotypical “stoners”. As far as we know, Azzariti consumed his cannabis, that he uses to combat post-traumatic stress and none of it made it to a museum, making Ms. Greene’s cannabis at Seattle’s Museum of History and Industry all that much special. It would be fun to be a fly on the wall at the museum to see what people have to say about the cannabis display. A time-lapse audio recording would be amazing, as the novelty wears off and decades from now, future generations are amazed that marijuana prohibition was a policy in the first place.
 
These are truly historic times. Future generations will certainly look back and wonder what the big fuss was about, just as we are amazed that alcohol prohibition was even implemented in the first place and that racial segregation was the law of the land. Historians will look back on prohibition and wonder why such a harmless plant led to so many harmful public policies prohibiting it. Let’s keep up the fight, keep spreading the word and put cannabis prohibition into the dust bin of history, so it will be a relic of the past, partly commemorated by a few cannabis flowers in a museum donated by a loving grandmother.

Children And Legalization

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, August, 20th 2014 by THCFinder
children-and-mj-legalization
Kids and cannabis is one subject on it's own. So when it comes to children and the idea of legalization, things are a little different. While the parents in their lives may support the legalization of the plant, kids are still being taught in schools that the plant is no good. Not only that but that health risks are a very apparent issue for anyone under the age of 21. Children are being told one thing at home and another thing at school, making the whole process extremely difficult for their little minds to comprehend.
 
Parental responsibility is to explain the world as best they can to their child while still letting the child make their own choices about the world. A parent should not control but rather guide. Kids are creative and incredibly smart for being so small and we take their intelligence and innocence for granted. Parents try harder then ever before to control their kids constantly, monitoring their text messages, online time, and sometimes even drug testing. While it is important to listen to your parents, parents need to remember that kids need to grow in to their own person. A person that must also function in the world of 2014, which most of us know can be an unforgiving and unkind place. Sheltering a child will do nothing more then cause the child to live a very scared and unprepared life.
 
When it comes to cannabis legalization and children, it's not a hard choice to make. Kids deserve to know about cannabis. Period. If a parent doesn't hide the fact that they use Xanax or drink beer and wine, then they shouldn't have to hide the fact that they use cannabis. Kids should understand that the plant is beneficial to the human race and that it acts as a medicine for those that are sick. It promotes a peaceful environment and a positive life, something that has been made difficult to obtain by the government and others bent on keeping marijuana illegal. Kids especially need to be educated on the benefits on the plant, while simultaneously not smoking it themselves.
 
Why might you ask? Well although cannabis does help the sick and improve the lives of many humans around the world, the information available on how THC effects the growing mind should definitely deter children from ingesting the substance if not under the direct supervision of a doctor. When children with undeveloped brains smoke, the THC prevents the brain from being fully coated in myelin, the chemical in our bodies that protects brain tissue from harm. If this protective layer isn't formed, there will be openings for other neurologically related issues down the road. The brain needs to develop correctly for the child to have a healthy life and ingesting cannabis while the brain is still forming can have negative consequences.
 
Programs like DARE are not effective and the numbers still prove that not only is alcohol still more easily obtained by kids but that less teens are using cannabis after the plant was declared legal in Colorado and Washington. With these numbers alone, people should realize that it's not about sheltering but educating. Without knowledgable adults or adults that don't share cannabis with their kids, the children of today will just put prohibition back on when they become adults. It's so important to talk to your kids about cannabis, explain the situation and prohibition, and tell them to make their own choice about it, after they've heard an educated opinion on it.

His arrest is the highest profile drug bust in recent history.
 
Arrested For Marijuana, Jackie Chan's Son Could Face Execution
 
Both younger Chan and Ko can and probably will be charged and punished for drug consumption. It's implied that consumption carries a lesser punishment compared to possession. A police statement, however, says that younger Chan is currently held for suspicions of harbouring suspected drug users. Younger Chan may face anywhere from mandatory rehab to three years in prison for the hundred grams of marijuana police found. During CCTV's broadcast they mention that the Younger Chan can face other charges including selling drugs. Drug dealing in China is technically an executable offense.
