Obama And Marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, January, 28th 2015 by THCFinder
obama-and-cannabisWith the recent 2015 State of the Union speech, people are wondering why there was absolutely no mention of the most popular plant in the news today. While cannabis has been proven to not only be a benefit in a medical sense but also in an industrial one, the President didn’t even mention marijuana once in his speech, leading many marijuana supporters to be disappointed. The speech contained many topics that could benefit from marijuana, much like the following quotes.
 
 
“That’s what middle-class economics is - the idea that this country does best when everyone gets their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules. We don’t just want everyone to share in America’s success - we want everyone to contribute to our success.”
 
 
Cannabis is legal in a number of states and medical in many more but the White House has repeatedly tried to stop the growth of this new industry. If everyone is to get their fair share, why not allow those in the cannabis industry to contribute as well? Provided they follow specific rules and guidelines, they should be just as well respected as other industries.
 
 
“So no one knows for certain which industries will generate jobs in the future.”
 
 
Many people are aware of the fact that legalizing marijuana would create hundreds if not thousands of jobs for people. From growers to trimmers to dispensary workers, marijuana would not only rake in revenue but prove people with employment in good environments. In a recent estimate, the marijuana industry was expected to add 200,000+ jobs to the workforce in 2015. And as marijuana expands and begins to grow as a business, there are surely only more jobs to be created. 
 
 
“When what you’re doing doesn’t work for fifty years, it’s time to try something new.”
 
 
This part of the speech was enraging to activists of marijuana everywhere. For the last fifty years, the government has worked their asses off to prevent people from ingesting a harmless plant. They’ve spent millions of dollars on propaganda, most of it nonsense, along with “educational programs” designed to teach kids about the dangers of the plant, not to mention the people that are serving jail time. Marijuana prohibition has done nothing but hurt this country and for Obama not to mention it during this part of the speech is astounding and shocking.
 
 
“As Americans, we have a profound commitment to justice.”
 
 
There are thousands of people that are in jail or have a record because of a nonviolent marijuana related offense. From possession of a resin stained pipe to cancer patients that tried to grow their own medicine, no one is safe from prosecution because of marijuana. While these people have done nothing to hurt anyone and have simply just been in possession of a plant, they suffer life-long consequences that can prevent them from living life normally. Justice? Not so much.

Study: Patients Get More Relief From Medical Marijuana Than Painkillers

Category: News | Posted on Wed, January, 28th 2015 by THCFinder
more-relief-from-marijuana-than-pain-killersI always say that the best medicine is the medicine that works and is safer. That is almost always the case when it comes to medical marijuana compared to pharmaceuticals. Pharmaceuticals almost always come with harmful side effects, and have led to a lot of death and misery across the globe. Sadly, marijuana opponents would rather have patients using those harmful pharmaceuticals than using medical marijuana, even in states where medical marijuana is legal.
 
The results of a study were recently released which found that Australians who were suffering from chronic pain found more relief from using marijuana than they did using other conventional pain killers. Per the Sydney Morning Herald:
 
Australians suffering from chronic pain may get more relief from their symptoms using cannabis than they do from some conventional medications, researchers have found.
 
A large study of people suffering from chronic problems such as back pain, migraine and arthritis has discovered many are turning to cannabis to relieve their symptoms, despite already being prescribed heavy-duty opioid medications such as morphine and oxycodone.
 
In a finding that is likely to further intensify the debate about medical marijuana use, the National Drug and Alcohol Centre researchers found people who used the illegal drug said it was more helpful than the highly addictive and potentially dangerous opioid medications.
 
I have had multiple friends die from overdosing on pain killers. I have never, ever had a friend die from using medical marijuana. If patients get more relief from medical marijuana, whether it’s in Australia or beyond, they should be allowed to use it. Any politician or opponent who says otherwise doesn’t have a heart or soul.

Cigarette Use Among Teens Is Down

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, January, 28th 2015 by THCFinder
teen-smoking-is-downSince 2013, teenagers have been using cigarettes less and less, while marijuana use continue to be used at rates similar to past years, says a study recently released by the National Institute of Drug Abuse revealed. Additionally, the survey also measured the use of e-cigarettes among teens, which is reported to be increasing significantly. This study, part of the NIDA’s 2014 Monitoring the Future survey, monitors the drug use and attitudes among 8th, 10th, and 12th graders. It was conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan and funded by the NIDA.
 
 
Among eighth graders, those who smoked marijuana stayed around 6.5%. Tenth graders were at about 16.6% and twelfth graders were at 21.2%. But the survey showed that the use of electronic cigarettes is high. In the past month, 8.7% of eighth graders were using them, 16.2% of tenth graders, and 17.1% of twelfth graders. But the smoking of actual cigarettes over the last five years has decreased by nearly 50% across all of the grades studied. 
 
 
With more educational programs available about the use of marijuana, more kids will learn to use the plant responsibly. By just teaching them scare tactics, they become more curious as to what the effects actually are. This leads to them trying it. And while I absolutely have nothing against smoking marijuana, I do believe that people should wait until they are at least 18 years old to begin smoking it, especially regularly, unless directed by a doctor. By teaching kids about marijuana early, with the facts rather than lies, it is more likely they will be smart about when they begin smoking.
 
 
And while the decrease in cigarette smoking is definitely a great thing, the rise in electronic cigarette use is something to keep an eye on. While it is said that these new pieces of technology are supposed to be healthier, the long term effects aren’t really known and can possibly be just as bad as cigarettes. Unfortunately, this is something that we’ll know until later in our lives. Along with that, just because kids are using electronic cigarettes doesn’t mean they’re not hooked on nicotine, which definitely isn’t a good thing either.
