2014 To Be A Green Year

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, December, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
2014-cannabisColorado and Washington have pioneered the way for states looking to legalize marijuana and basically tell the Feds to screw off (even though the Feds don't actually listen). Now, as the ball starts to get rolling, other states are paying close attention to what these two states are pocketing. In Colorado, Amendment 64 was said to be able to save the state $12 million a year in reduced criminal costs, as well as generate $32 million in revenue. Washington projects even higher numbers, as they took cannabis tourism in to account. The revenue projected for Washington is $530 million. With that much green involved, who wouldn't want to keep an eye on what's happening?
 
There are numerous states who are working on passing medical marijuana, decriminalizing the plant, and some are simply trying to get the current laws to ease up. After all, being jobless for years because you got caught with a roach doesn't really seem fair or productive to the economy, right? It's the western states, such as Ohio and Illinois that are hating on cannabis, where in Ohio, there was a House Bill introduced that completely repealed medical marijuana.
 
On the other hand, there are other companies that are getting in on marijuana industry while it's still young. Most people are familiar with the banks and their disregard for cannabis based revenue but in Washington, Bank Of America has said flat out that they will take money from the sale of marijuana. This is definitely a smart move on the part of the bank, who stands to make a good deal of money once the sales of legal cannabis take off in 2014.
 
2014 will probably bring the legalization of cannabis in at least one country; Uruguay. President Jose Mujica has made his stance on marijuana very clear and believes that by legalizing it, the crime rate in his country will drop, His country is set to vote on the passing of the measure that will establish a regulatory group as well as controls to for the legal use and sale of cannabis is Uruguay. This country is the first to be developing a model for full cannabis legalization. Let's keep our fingers crossed that other countries will do the same! Even if no one legalizes in 2014, we're sure to see more states giving way to leaner laws regarding our favorite plant.

Cannabis Can Successfully Treat Epilepsy In Children, Says New Study

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, December, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-childrenA new study published in this month’s issue of the journal Epilepsy Behavior has found that many parents with epileptic children are turning to cannabis-based medicines to treat their seizures, and in a large majority of instances, it’s successful in doing so.
 
“Severe childhood epilepsies are characterized by frequent seizures, neurodevelopmental delays, and impaired quality of life. In these treatment-resistant epilepsies, families often seek alternative treatments”, begins the study’s abstract. “This survey explored the use of cannabidiol-enriched cannabis in children with treatment-resistant epilepsy.”
 
For the study, researchers at the Department of Neurology at Stanford University examined 19 parents who have epileptic children, and who use cannabis-based medicines (such as tinctures and oils) to treat their child’s seizures. The average number of antiepileptic drugs tried before using cannabis was 12.
 
Researchers found that; “Sixteen (84%) of the 19 parents reported a reduction in their child’s seizure frequency while taking cannabidiol-enriched cannabis. Of these, two (11%) reported complete seizure freedom, eight (42%) reported a greater than 80% reduction in seizure frequency, and six (32%) reported a 25-60% seizure reduction.”
 
In addition, they found that; “Other beneficial effects included increased alertness, better mood, and improved sleep.” The only reported side effects were “drowsiness and fatigue”.
 
With this data, researchers conclude that “parents are using cannabidiol-enriched cannabis as a treatment for their children with treatment-resistant epilepsy”.
 
Recently the U.S. Federal Drug Administration gave approval to several studies intending to test the effectiveness of cannabis-based medicines on the treat of epilepsy in children.

Canadian Officer Has Uniform Taken Due To Cannabis Use

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, December, 20th 2013 by THCFinder

Smoking cannabis should not get you fired from a job. It's not smart to smoke cannabis while on the job when at specific careers, such as police officers and such. But being stripped of your job and title because you lit up a joint might be taking it a little too far. Cannabis is still illegal but more people are accepting it's use for medical purposes and let's face it, cops need to smoke just as much as any of us.
 
For Cpl Ronald Francis, in New Brunswick, had his uniform taken by fellow officers at his home. The man's cousin shot a video of the other officers taking anything that had to do with Francis' service in the RCMP. They took shirts, pants, jackets, gloves, and other items from the home. The red serge uniform that Francis owned was not seized, as it was at his girlfriend's house but he was ordered to turn it in. However, Francis refused to return his 20 years of exemplary service medal, which he rightfully deserves.
 
Francis spent 20 years working in the service for his country. To take away this from him is completely unfair, especially since most people are beginning to accept marijuana use. The cause of the uniform seizure was when a photo surfaced of Francis smoking a joint in his red serge uniform, something he was told to refrain from doing. While he probably should have listened to the warning, taking away such an honorable title is sure to have a severe emotional toll on the man.
 
Being punished for smoking a joint is like being punished for drinking a beer. While in uniform, it's probably not a good idea to be lighting up a joint. But as said above, the emotional toll of something like this is sure to have a negative effect on the poor man. He still possess his police badge but has been on medical leave. He doesn't feel mentally stable enough to return to work. I do believe that after being warned about smoking in uniform, a punishment should be issued but possibly a suspension. But not something as intense and as severe as this.
