Does TV Effect Cannabis Support

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, November, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
does-tv-effect-cannabis-supportThe media is an extremely powerful tool that I really can’t stress enough. Every day, we are bombarded with advertisements. We sit and watch television and go to the movies with our friends. Movies, shows, commercials, photos. We see it all, every day. Over the last few years, if you’ve been paying attention, more and more TV shows and movies have begun to transform the pot smokers from the stupid, silly stoners to the people who are “cool”, “hip”, or just downright smart. From cartoons like Futurama to horror flicks like the Cabin in the Woods, marijuana is slowly taking over the media industry one character at a time.
 
 
Take for example, the TV show Weeds. Nancy Botwin was a widow that started selling weed in order to help keep her family afloat after her husband died. Her plight seemed to really grab an audience and the show managed to get through numerous seasons before kind of faltering and becoming more about gun running, cocaine smuggling, and Nancy’s inability to control her crazy offspring. Not to mention a bummer of a last episode that was so corny, it made cotton candy look sour. But the point is, Weeds was a long running, highly rated show that people loved… And it’s center piece was cannabis.
 
 
Cartoons especially seem to focus on the use of cannabis, probably because the writers involved acknowledge the fact that most of their viewers are stoned. Cartoons like Rick and Morty, Futurama, Family Guy, American Dad, the Simpsons, and many more feature weed in at least one episode, with some cartoons making constant references to it throughout seasons. It remains a question, however, if this explosion of positive weed related humor is due to the growing public support of the plant (since TV stations want to play what we want to see so we’ll watch it) or if those 420 friendly depictions are liberalizing attitudes about cannabis legalization.
 
 
Oddly enough, the General Social Survey (GSS) found some light to shed on this question. The GSS asks about TV consumption by consumers and marijuana legalization in it’s biennial academic surveys. Over the last decade, after accounting other variables, support for cannabis legalization has increased almost 20% points among those who watch at least 4 hours of TV a day, which turns out to be 1/3 of the US population. Meanwhile, opinions among those who don’t watch as much TV seemed to stay the same. 
 
 
With the results not being 100% definitive, it’s still somewhat difficult to say if TV is responsible for the growing support of cannabis. Some Americans could have changed their viewing habits because they don’t approve of prime time’s portrayal of weed or some depictions could have change to reflect who was watching the most TV. Of course, the most likely scenario is that TV normalizing cannabis use is helping to change the public’s opinion of the plant overall.

Will Guatemala Legalize Marijuana In 2015?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, November, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
guatemalan-mj-legalizationOne of my favorite places I’ve ever visited is Guatemala. I went there on a ten day missionary trip in 2009, and it’s a trip that will forever be in my heart. The people there were so nice and the country was so beautiful. I love fresh fruit, and I’m not that tall, and there’s fresh fruit everywhere there and everyone’s my height. But despite it’s beauty and amazing citizens, Guatemala is very poor. Guatemala is also plagued by the same problems that come with marijuana prohibition that other countries in Latin and South America face. Cartel operations are all over the place, and there’s a lot of misery as a result.
 
It’s time that Guatemala changed it’s marijuana policies to help defeat cartels, and help improve the economics of the country. It sounds like 2015 might be the year for that. Per teleSUR:
 
In an exclusive interview with teleSUR, Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina said that his government would follow the example of Uruguay by taking a decision on legalizing marijuana in early 2015.
 
Guatemala would greatly benefit from marijuana legalization. Like I said, there is a strong cartel presence in the country, and legalizing marijuana would no doubt hurt those cartels. Jobs are very much needed in Guatemala, and a booming marijuana industry would bring many jobs no doubt. Local economies in Guatemala would thrive. The climate in Guatemala is ripe for marijuana farms, which would instantly make Guatemala a leader in the global marijuana market.

Medical Marijuana Patient Stabbed & Charged With Possession

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
mmj-posession-chargedOn October 8th of 2013, Scott Waselik, 24 was stabbed in his home by his roommate, Kevin Rios, 22. Suffering a stab wound to the chest, Waselik managed to drive his car to the police station in his town of Sparta, New Jersey, and tell the police about the attack. Reluctantly, Waselik gave his address to police in order to get custody of his roommate. While Waselik was transported to the hospital for treatment, police headed to his house. When the cops arrived at the house, the saw Rios standing near his car, with a bag of cannabis in the open trunk, the report said. After cuffing Rios, one of the officers at the scene went in to the house to “clear” it and saw more marijuana and paraphernalia. After leaving the scene and coming back with a warrant, cops returned and seized the plant and the paraphernalia.
 
 
Both Waselik and Rios had cards, allowing them to consume the plant in allowance with their state’s law. The police, however, said that the marijuana found wasn’t from a state approved dispensary, as is required by the law in New Jersey. Waselik, a patient who suffers from Crohn’s disease, wasn’t even given a chance to defend himself before being slapped with the possession charge. For the last year, he has been arguing his case that he had a right to have the marijuana found in his home.
 
 
On Friday, Waselik caught a break and the judge hearing the case did him a huge favor. The judge ruled that the police had no authority to enter the house in the first place. Which means that both the cannabis (totaling at 74 grams) and the paraphernalia can’t be used as evidence. But the judge ruled that the police had no emergency need to enter the house, seeing as how Rios was already in custody and Waselik was on his way to the hospital. 
 
 
Targeting a medical marijuana patient is a low blow by the police. With the judge throwing out the evidence of the plant and the paraphernalia, Waselik will be able to consume his marijuana in peace. As a patient dealing with Crohn’s, he is definitely someone would could benefit from using the plant as a medicine. Those patients that need the plant should not be targeted, especially when they are complying with the laws regarding possession.
