Colorado Shops Are Running Out Of Legal Marijuana
Category: News | Posted on Wed, January, 8th 2014 by THCFinder
What happens when you only have a little over 20 places to buy legal marijuana in Colorado, but have everyone and their grandma traveling there to buy legal marijuana? It doesn’t take an Economics major to figure out that supply won’t be able to keep up with demand, especially with a seed-to-sale model like Colorado’s. Multiple media reports are suggesting that Colorado marijuana stores are running low on supply, and in one Case (The Clinic) they actually ran out for a day.
Colorado has a very tightly regulated recreational marijuana model which makes it impossible to get non-regulated marijuana into stores. I remember a handful of years ago when Colorado didn’t have the 70% grow rule for medical marijuana dispensaries, and dispensaries were running out of supply and supplemented it with marijuana from wherever they could get it. A lot of my friends from Oregon were running a lot of pounds to Colorado during those times. But those days are gone.
Now that demand is clearly outweighing supply, Colorado marijuana stores are rationing their supplies and/or raising prices. The price raising has drawn some criticism, but mainly from veterans inside of Colorado and on the West Coast where marijuana prices are very cheap. I haven’t heard anyone buying legal marijuana in Colorado that is from a non-marijuana friendly state complain about prices. To quote my cousin from Idaho, “I’d LOVE to pay those prices for that quality of marijuana. It’s a far better deal than we have here in Idaho!”
The shortage of legal marijuana and high prices will be short-lived. More marijuana is being grown to meet the demand, and as more stores open up, the prices will come down with competition. Well, at least in theory. When all 136 stores are open, if people are still coming out in the numbers they have been so far, it might surprise people just how much marijuana people can smoke and/or eat in the form of edibles. Hopefully it will lead to even more retail licenses being issued so that the consumer can get the same price or better at a retail establishment than they can on the black market.

J1 is a cross between Jack Herer and Skunk #1. A great strain for relaxing and stress relief, it embodies the best qualities of its parent strains. Very peaceful effects.
Down The Stereotypes
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, January, 8th 2014 by THCFinder
As cannabis users, we work extremely hard to disprove the annoying stereotypes that still stick with us to this day. No one seems to view Tommy Chong as a man who beat cancer with cannabis oil or as one of the leading cannabis activists, has brought the community much farther than we ever could have gotten without him. No they see him as some spaced out pothead that drives around in an ice cream truck full of weed. I think it's safe to say that marijuana has come a long way from "Dave's not here, man". While we recognize the foundations of the stoner community, it's important to show the world that we are not just a bunch of boring, lazy bums with no real goals in life.
While digging through the endless piles of junk on the internet, I stumbled across an article written by David Brooks, a writer at the New York Times. It was titled "Weed; Been There. Done That" and I felt compelled to see what a former smoker had to say about the status of cannabis these days and why he'd made the choice to not smoke any more. As with most, this choice just sort of happened. Marijuana is either for you or not, kind of like the idea of tattoo addiction. You either really like it and continue to indulge or you don't and you get a couple and call it quits. Brooks and his buddies just sort of let their cannabis use dwindle out. There's definitely nothing wrong with it but the portrayal of the stoner was more than offensive.
In the piece, Brooks stated that stoners are not interesting and that being a smoker is not something one should be proud of. I'm not sure if he's just been ignoring social media or cannabis just isn't as apparent as I thought but stoners are really proud of their smoking... Really proud. From stickers to sweaters to hats, stoners will wear anything that has cannabis related symbols on it. Entire companies are based off of sales of pot related clothing. If people are buying it, they must be wearing it. I myself am currently wearing a very comfortable pair of weed leaf printed socks and don't plan on changing when I go out later. Stoners are proud to smoke. And we are definitely interesting. Since the more widespread acceptance of cannabis, people of all different careers and backgrounds are being more open with their cannabis use. Doctors, teachers, police officers, and former military are all people who use cannabis. The weed smoking pool has extended past the drug rug wearing high school senior.
The article that Brooks wrote went on to say that stoners do stupid things. While it is true that stoners can be slightly goofy, we are not stupid nor do we do stupid things more than other people. In this day and age, stupidity is basically a birthright and being stoned makes it easier to cope with the absurd amount of stupidity that seems to have overtaken the human race. I can't stress it enough; "if you were stupid after smoking weed, chances are you were stupid before you smoked". That statement could not be more true. Being a functioning, upstanding stoner is something that pot users are extremely proud of.
Stoners work hard and you never know who might be a secret stoner. Your banker might be lighting up when she gets home from work or your dentist maybe packs a bowl after he's done drilling cavities out of your mouth. You don't know who smokes so there is really no reason to say "stoners are stupid" or "smoking pot makes you do stupid things". It's the choice of the individual to do stupid things. Marijuana doesn't make you do them, it's just a scapegoat.

Strain Review; Fire OG
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, January, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
With a name that contains "fire", this strain has some seriously high standards to live up to. Luckily, it makes the cut. The Fire OG strain is a highly prized bud to have in your jar and is a huge part of the cannabis scene in California. With a high price and an even higher effect, this strain is something that you definitely should keep around for that one awesome strain that's needed to pick your day up out of the gutter. Fire OG even lives up to it's name in it's scent, providing an odd charcolish smell, rather than the traditional weed smells like lemon and earth.
The buds of the Fire OG strain vary in appearance depending on who grew it and where. Depending on who grows it, the strain can look like two completely different plants. But when grown the correct way by an experienced grower can yield buds that sell for over $70 an eighth. The trichomes on Fire are amazing and are sure to get you extremely baked. The buds are sticky and at first contain the smell of lemon but that quickly vanishes once the buds have been broken open and stuck in to the grinder.
Fire OG has an amazing muscle and pain effect. This makes it perfect for patients dealing with migraines, arthritis, and other pain related injuries and illnesses. Any patient that has tried Fire OG knows that it contains incredible relief, much better than any pill that is sold at the drug store. The emotion effects consist of euphoria and tranquility, making Fire OG another amazing strain for patients in need of a mental leg up. The strain works quickly and is perfect for an immediate fix.
