Marijuana ad campaign promotes responsible consumption

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
mj-ad-consume-responsibleA new campaign urging responsible marijuana use is being rolled out Wednesday to counter hyperbolic anti-drug advertisements of the past — which were mostly blowing smoke.
 
"Consume Responsibly" is the first-ever comprehensive public education campaign about using — and not abusing — the drug.
 
"For decades marijuana education in this country has been based on scaring adults away from using marijuana. Now that marijuana is becoming legal in states around the country, it's time for a more realistic and honest approach," Mason Tvert, a spokesman for the Marijuana Policy Project, told the Daily News.
 
MPP, the nation's largest pro-marijuana legalization group, is sparking the campaign in Denver with a billboard of a distraught woman and a warning for tourists.
 
"Don't let a candy bar ruin your vacation," it reads, alluding to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd's column about eating a bit too much of a pot candy bar in a Denver hotel.
 
People interested in trying edible marijuana products are encouraged to start with a low dose of THC and only take a small bite at first. The effects can kick in up to two hours after swallowing — but you wouldn't know that from the anti-marijuana ads from the past that were filled with scare tactics and misinformation.
 
Those advertisements — often produced by agencies are organizations dedicated to maintaining marijuana prohibition — warned that pot use will make you fry your brain, hurt your children, disappoint your dog and even support terrorists."These are essentially abstinence-only campaigns, which we know don't work when it comes to behaviors that millions of people choose to engage in," Tvert said.
 
Like many others, Dowd probably saw plenty of these zero-tolerance War on Drugs or Just Say No advertisements, but not a single one about how to safely engage in the marijuana consumption if that is one's choice as an adult in a state where the drug is legal.

Sour Grapes- Hybrid

A hybrid of Grape Ape and the legendary Sour Diesel, this strain is gaining more and more popularity. The buds are medium-sized, light-green and astonishingly coated with sticky trichromes. The aroma from these near-perfect nugs is fragrantly similar to white wine, citrus and fruit, with undertones of sour dank. The buds are somewhat fluffy and noticeably soft.

Northern Lights - Indica

Northern Lights is renowned for its ability to be grown very easily. The strain's reputation also comes from the fact that it has won competitions such as the Cannabis Cup. The #5 strain was first entered into competition 1989 when several seeds were mailed from the U.S.A. to Amsterdam. The strain quickly dominated the Cannabis Cup, winning in 1989, 1998, and again in 2009. It is a cross of Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa.

Marijuana Infused Frozen Pizza Is Every Lazy Stoners Dream Come True

Each six-inch pie is laced with 250 mg of THC
 
Earlier this year, a pizzeria in Vancouver began offering pies with pot baked into them. Genius, yes, but what about the people who want to enjoy special pizza without having to leave their homes? What about them?
 
This is where frozen weed-laced pizzas come in. Los Angeles-based company Stoned Oven Gourmet Medibles is now peddling what it calls Stoned Oven Gourmet Pizzas, LA Weekly reports. Started by 24-year-old “ganja entrepreneur” Henry Mark, the company sells these six-inch personal pizzas — which contain 250 mg of ethanol-extracted THC — to dispensaries scattered around LA for $10 each.
 
“You cannot taste one bit of marijuana in there,” Mark tells LA Weekly. “This pizza is really dangerous, because you can trick anyone!” (We do not recommend using these pizzas to trick anyone.)
 
Mark’s advice is to eat a quarter of the pizza, drink some water, wait for a half hour and then assess the situation. Might be a good idea to have some marijuana-free frozen pizzas on hand too, so you can tend to your munchies without getting even higher. Your call.

Teen Marijuana Use Continues To Decrease As Marijuana Reform Increases

Category: News | Posted on Wed, September, 17th 2014 by THCFinder
teen-marijuana-use-down-mj-reform‘What about the children?’ That’s a slogan that Kevin Sabet should wear on a T-shirt every time he travels to speak against marijuana reform for political purposes. Marijuana opponents like Kevin Sabet try very, very hard to make it sound like once marijuana is legalized and regulated, an epidemic of teens using marijuana will immediately follow. While Kevin Sabet can try to make that claim, math and logic don’t support it. Per the Washington Post:
 
Opponents of legalization often argue that it leads to a declining perception of risks associated with marijuana use among teens, which in turn leads to increased rates of adolescent use. But while the latest NSDUH data shows a continued drop in perceived risk of marijuana use among adolescents, overall teen use rates have actually trended slightly downward.
 
Moreover, teens are also more likely to say that marijuana is difficult to obtain today than they were ten years ago. Taken together, these numbers suggest that evolving public attitudes toward marijuana use haven’t made adolescents more likely to use the drug, nor have they made it easier to obtain.
 
These findings come from the 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), an annual, nationally-representative survey of roughly 70,000 Americans aged 12 and older. Because of its large sample size the survey is considered an authoritative account of the nature and scope of drug, alcohol and tobacco use in the United States.
 
You may notice that those excerpts came from the Washington Post, the same Washington Post that earlier this week made the following claim in an anti-marijuana editorial urging readers to vote no on marijuana legalization in Washington D.C.:
 
It’s not been a year since Colorado became the first state to allow recreational marijuana use and, as the Smart Approaches to Marijuana has catalogued, there have been negative consequences, including increased instances of impaired driving and increased use by youth.
 
Fortunately for logic and reasoning, but unfortunate for the editorial staff at the Washington Post, teen use has not increased in America since two states legalized marijuana, and specifically, teen use has not increased in Colorado after legalization, which by the way was in 2012, not less than a year ago as the Washington Post stated in the second article I reference. Legalization and regulation makes it harder for teens to get their hands on marijuana, just as legalization and regulation makes it harder for teens to get their hands on tobacco and alcohol. Opponents can try to refute those facts as much as they would like, but when challenged with math and logic, marijuana opponents look quite stupid in doing so.
