Government Workers And Cannabis
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, December, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
With legal marijuana becoming more and more apparent in the near future, there are a lot of things to work out. Laws, rules, and regulations are constantly being in place to try to harness the immense power of cannabis but as we all know, trying to control nature is impossible. A big issue that definitely needs to be addressed by law makers is the allowance of cannabis use by government employees, including officers of the law.
If you ask a lot of police officers, they will tell you that they would rather deal with a stoned person as compared to a drunk person. Not only that but there's always the joke that cops only take weed so that they can smoke it themselves, claiming that it's located in the "evidence locker". You have to wonder how many officers would love to be smoking a joint once they've gotten off the clock. I'm sure the number is higher than a lot of people think. It's only fair that if marijuana is legal, cops can smoke too. If cannabis becomes legal, all jobs that test for THC and turn away potential employees because of it will have to stop testing for THC. It would make no sense if jobs continued to be "THC-free" if the plant was being legally used.
Other government workers, including court officials, judges, etc should also be able to use cannabis as they see fit. They obviously should avoid smoking before going to work, as their jobs are incredibly important to society. However, if they're allowed to drink alcohol outside of work, they should be able to smoke. It wouldn't be a crime in the plant was legal, therefore there really wouldn't be an issue... Right?
Of course, jobs are always allowed a way around the law. By adding "policies", jobs can pretty much turn away whoever they deem "unfit" to work at that place of employment. So while marijuana may be on the brink of becoming widely accepted and legal, not everyone will be able to get the benefits, even if they are a patient. Problems like this are what awaits the cannabis community once the votes are counted and the laws are official. Working matters like this out is the next step and we're on our way there!

Can Animals Sense When You're Stoned?
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, December, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
As most people are aware, an animal has far better senses than their human companions. Some people are left wondering if their animals know when they've been smoking. After doing a bunch of reading on the topic, there really isn't scientific information on the subject but there does seem to be an abundance of people who report odd happenings when they've been smoking around their animals.
A lot of stoners with dogs seem to experience their best friend acting funny around them when stoned. The dogs will bark or possibly even growl at their owners when they're smoking! Cats seem to stare down their owners much more than normal, sometimes meowing when they hear the lighter light. Some people argue that the animals are just reacting to the overpowering smell of the smoke, since their sense of smell is much more intense than ours. It is also possible that the animals can smell the marijuana odor in our sweat or on our bodies in general.
Animals might also want to be around when you're stoned because you're definitely more apt to give them people snacks from the plate of munchies you have in front of you. Even if you're not giving them food knowingly, you can trust that they're circling under you, waiting for the stray crumbs to fall in to their waiting mouths. I can imagine that animals find humans interesting when stoned, wondering what makes their master sit on the couch and watch cartoons all day.
It's not a sure thing if animals know when you're stoned or not. There's no official research on this subject, saying if our furry friends know for sure or not. The individual stoner reports, however, do seem to point in the direction that our pets know when we're smoking weed. From dogs who sniff stoners and slowly back away or cats that feel compelled to cuddle only when you're stoned as hell. Whatever the case be, it's always important to love your animals!
Cannabinoids May Help Revive Individuals After Cardiac Arrest
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, December, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
An intriguing new study being published in next month’s issue of the journal Critical Care Medicine, and published online early by the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabinoid-based medicine administered through IV may provide a method of helping an individual resuscitate from cardiac arrest.
According to researchers, who examined rate models of cardiac arrest, “Blood temperatures decreased from 37°C to 33°C in 4 hours in animals in WIN55, 212-2 [cannabinoid receptor agonist] hypothermia group.. There was a significant improvement in myocardial function in the animals treated with WIN55, 212-2 hypothermia beginning at 1 hour after start of infusion.”
They continue; “WIN55, 212-2 hypothermia group was associated with significantly improved neurologic deficit scores and survival time when compared with placebo control group and WIN55, 212-2 with normal body temperature group.”
They conclude that; “In a rat model of cardiac arrest, better postresuscitation myocardial function, neurological deficit scores, and longer duration of survival were observed by the pharmacologically induced hypothermia with WIN55, 212-2. The improved outcomes of cardiopulmonary resuscitation following administration of WIN55, 212-2 appeared to be the results from its temperature reduction effects.”
