Marijuana; Schedule One
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, November, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
By rating the level of danger in a drug, the government can use it to scare people in to steering clear. Or so they think. While they may be attempting to do this for the right reasons, they are so wrong. Cannabis, a drug that has been proven by many studies and backed by many doctors, is a schedule one in the Controlled Substances Act. Most people are aware that this schedule also includes heroin, LSD, MDMA, and peyote.
There is no possible way that marijuana is more dangerous than MDMA and absolutely not more deadly than heroin. This classification means that cannabis has zero medical value. Weird, considering the amount of amazing qualities this plant seems to have for people with cancer, depression, arthritis, etc. Scheduling cannabis is completely unnecessary, seeing as how harmful the other drugs in this category. Not only that but studies show that cannabinoids drastically reduce the size of tumors in mice, if not completely curing the furry rodents of the tumors all together. Does that really sound that dangerous?
If the government wants to categorize marijuana, they should be categorizing as the most beneficial medicine available to people. Even though the plant is illegal, there are pharmaceutical companies that produce synthetic cannabis pills that are supposed to rival the effects of the plant. However, a plant like this is only the most effective in it's raw form. Synthetic cannabis doesn't effect the body the same way as the natural buds and has been found to be pretty ineffective.
The truth is that marijuana has been considered a negative thing for so long that some people have closed their minds to the possibility of a medicinal value. By keeping the plant in the Schedule 1 category, the negative stigma remains. There is a medical value to this plant, whether or not the government will admit it (we all know that they know it's beneficial). As more studies come forward and the positive message surrounding marijuana grows, more people will detached from that negative image that has been associated with cannabis for so long. There is no way that the government or anybody else can deny the power of this plant for long. Now, it is only a matter of time before the movement becomes too big to ignore.

Sam Hurd: I smoked pot all day, shared it
Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
Sam Hurd will be sentenced Wednesday for his role in a 2011 drug trafficking operation, and now that he’s meeting the prospect of a life in prison head on, the former Cowboys and Bears receiver is opening up about everything from his role in the process to drug culture in the NFL.
Speaking with The MMQB, Hurd said he spent the last few years of his career — which began in 2006 as an undrafted free agent out of Northern Illinois — smoking high-grade marijuana “all day, every day.”
“Whatever was considered the loudest weed in California — I wanted a notch above that,” Hurd told the site, saying he would import two to 10 pounds at a time from the West Coast. “I had educated myself on different strains and potencies and growing techniques. I was very selective. It was like wine.”
Hurd also said he smoked marijuana and sold it at cost to several friends during his time in Dallas, including “20 to 25” teammates on the Cowboys.
Hurd didn’t mention any players by name, aside from former Cowboys safety Patrick Watkins, but according to his estimate, which he called “conservative,” at least half of the NFL smokes weed during the season and can avoid testing positive for the substance by knowing when the annual sample will be collected.
“Early in his career,” Michael McKnight wrote for The MMQB, “Hurd had been entrusted with a secret known by only a few of Dallas’s veterans: Tests for marijuana occurred at roughly the same time each year.”

For those patients that work 8 hour days or just don't have time to sit around and smoke, it can be difficult to mediate properly. Sometimes, people just can't get enough weed in to their system to feel better, such as some people that are afflicted by PTSD. Some are beginning to discover a better way for extreme sufferers to mediate. A patch, put on one's skin, that puts THC and CBD in to the bloodstream via transdermal delivery.
As with smoking or eating cannabis, the amount of patch used depends on the patient using it. Everyone has a different tolerance to THC and CBD so the size of the patch depends on the user. The cannabinoids in the patch are directly delivered to the bloodstream, creating extreme relief. The patch releases the stored cannabinoids over the course of 8 hours. Even after the 8 hours are up and the patch is removed, the effects are still felt. This benefits people who work long hours yet still need to medicate or patients that deal with extremely high tolerances and apparent resistance to smoking THC.
Not only is cannabis effective in the patch form, but other methods are equally effective in treating symptoms by transdermal delivery. Soaps and lotions are very effective for people with joint pain and arthritis. The lotions especially are good for specific areas of pain, due to the anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis. The patch is recommended for patients that need higher doses of medicine continuously. This method is extremely fast acting and effective, allowing the patient to go about their day normally.
Basic medicine, such as using cannabis as a topical treatment, would be so beneficial to people. Not everyone can afford health insurance or to even go to the doctor in the first place. Having a plant like cannabis that can grow virtually anywhere would save thousands, if not millions, of dollars that people are forced to spend on costly medical care. Cannabis medicine can be virtually free to people who need it. Products like topical cannabis can help immensely and it's so sad that it's not being utilized to it's full potential.
What strain is packed in your blunt today?
