Hippies Vs Hustlers
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, March, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
There are many different kinds of stoner out there. From the lazy stoner to the successful, everyone is beginning to smoke pot. It's more rare to find someone who doesn't smoke these days. Although it seems that lately, according to the social media world, there are two main categories that are springing up. On one side, there are stoners who are more earthy, more environmental and on the other, are the stoners that "hustle" and are focused on money making rather then anything else.
The hippie of today is not the usual tie-dye wearing, flowering throwing pothead of the 60s and 70s. While these people may not appear to be hippies on the outside (I only own one thing that's tie-dye and it's black, grey, and white tie-dye...), on the inside, they're very in tune with themselves and the environments around them. Usually, these stoners are the ones who do the juicing (which everyone should be doing because of the amazing health benefits), yoga, and use crystals to help calm themselves in addition to weed. Hippies today may not seem like their long lost ancestors but their goal is the same; to just chill!
While the hippies are hanging out doing yoga and taking bong rips, the motivated is off getting shit done! These people are goal orientated and ready to take on the days challenges but only after smoking a great deal of bud. Usually, the hustler stoners like to show off a bit much, making them slightly ostentatious but their intentions are good. They just want to make money and be a success. Can't argue with that! Hustler stoners are sure to provide a fun time if you hang out with them as well, seeing as how their bombastic personalities seem to attract positive attention. The hustlers also tend to have extremely good taste in bud, making sure that their strains are as great as their paychecks!
There will always be subcategories in the stoner community and they will always be compared. Whether you're a hippie or a hustler, it's all about the fact that we're smoking. Patients, recreational users, or those who just support but don't smoke can agree that the cannabis community (for the most part) is a great movement to be a part of. Full of positive people working towards an even more positive goal of having cannabis accepted everywhere, the marijuana industry will only grow from this point on, regardless of these cliques we always seem to fall in to!
Marijuana May Reduce Brain Damage From Alcohol
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, March, 4th 2014 by THCFinder
The battle between cannabis and alcohol is a harsh one. Most people acknowledge the fact that alcohol is probably the more dangerous of the two, with it's high risk of a fatal car crash if driving while drunk or the possibility of an overdose. Cannabis still to this day has zero deaths attributed to it. Alcohol also has the potential to seriously damage the human brain, causing problems with memory, cognitive functions, and speech. But due to a study released by the University of Kentucky and the University of Maryland, it is now apparent that cannabis may reduce the brain damaging effects of booze.
CBD is the substance that assists with this repairing of the brain. The study showed that the effect of the CBD on the alcoholic patients showed that CBD could definitely be considered a cure for this affliction after more research and trials. CBD is a strong antioxidants, along with the other substance that's found most commonly in cannabis, THC. These two antioxidants work together to repair the brain's neuro degeneration that's due to over ingestion of alcohol. The study went on to state that "it has been suggested that the neuro protective effects of CBD observed during binge alcohol induced neuro degeneration are due to it's high antioxidant qualities".
The study consisted of rat models being given both a skin patch and an injection of CBD. In the findings, it showed that both methods produced serious results, with the CBD rats showing "similar magnitudes of neuro protection", approximately 50% more. So either method of CBD ingestion has been shown to reduce the amount of alcohol brain damage and more studies will be conducted in order to progress to human trials. This is a huge breakthrough in the cannabis community, seeing as how there are no treatments available today that can reduce the effects of alcohol on the brain. CBD is a bright future for those who have managed to binge drink themselves to a point where they need help to fix the damage.

New Development In Attempt To Destroy Medical Cannabis Law In Washington
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, March, 4th 2014 by THCFinder
House Bill 2149, the proposal to gut Washington State’s medical cannabis law, failed to receive a public hearing in the Senate Ways and Means Committee yesterday, which was the deadline for the bill to receive one. This means that the proposal, in its current form, won’t be advancing. However, according to staff of the committee, the proposal will be implemented into an upcoming budget bill, which will be voted on in the coming days (sometime before the session ends on March 13th).
It’s now more important than ever that those in Washington State contact their lawmakers and urge them to oppose the regressive changes that this move would bring. Some of these changes include:
Creating a mandatory patient registry
Shutting down all collective gardens
Drastically reducing patients’ possession and cultivation limit
Putting medical cannabis under the same tax structure as recreational cannabis (25% at three different levels).
