Cannabis; the Cure For Cancer?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, October, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-the-sureColorado and Washington legalized weed. Everyone knows this by now. It's been huge news and a giant step for the movement. Now that it's legal, we're definitely going to see how the plant gets used in positive ways, for the good of patients. This is now happening in Colorado Springs, where a mother has decided that her son will not undergo chemotherapy for his leukemia, but will undergo cannabis treatments to combat the cancer.
 
The boy is only three years old and has already tried chemo, which he didn't do so well with. How could he? A three year old is supposed to be playing and enjoying their new life. Not hooked up to cell killing machines that may or (more likely) may not cure him. The boy's mother said that within the first three months of her son being on chemo, she could see him dying.
 
The subject of children and marijuana is a complicated one. Some doctors are okay with it and some are not. Since Colorado allows both medical and recreational, the choice was an easy one for Sierra Riddle. Doctors are able to give the young boy marijuana capsules that are filled with liquid. He takes these pills four times a day, rather than the numerous different kinds of pills that people in chemo are put on. Thanks to these pills, Landon Riddle is now in remission.
 
The negative side of this news is that someone who clearly doesn't believe in the power of cannabis ended up calling CPS on the family. This is absolutely insane, as the medicines that are given to children every day are far more dangerous than cannabis. As an adult, I have taken both Zoloft and Ativan as prescribed by my doctor. Those two pills alone were enough to make me feel like I was trying to swim through molasses. I've also taken Adderall, which most kids are on these days and that makes me freak out. I can't imagine the effect it would have on a child. Marijuana should be the first treatment tried, not the last.
 
More studies are needed on the relation of cannabis that is ingested by children. I do believe that children can benefit from cannabis that's high in CBD rather than THC if they are ill and need medicine. At least cannabis is a nonaddictive substance. Most pills that you can get at the pharmacy are addictive. Trying a natural cure first wouldn't hurt anybody, would it?

Fun Stoner Halloween Costumes!

Category: Fun | Posted on Sat, October, 5th 2013 by THCFinder

STONED-HALLOWEEN

It’s October. This is the best time of year. Halloween is by far my favorite holiday. While I’m definitely too old to trick or treat, it’s still a dope holiday with an extremely interesting history. I wish that my little brother was younger because I’d be sending him to get candy for me though. The stoner part of me thinks that it’s almost worth Trick-Or-Treating at age twenty two just to get my hands on all of that candy. If you’re not going out for candy, chances are you’re going to a party. Parties on Halloween require a costume. So here’s some dope Halloween costumes that you can do alone or with a friend!

1. Cheech And/Or Chong

cheech-and-choong6

Whether you go with someone or by yourself, everyone knows these two. They have that classic stoner look that’s easy (and cheap) to pull off! I definitely recommend this one for a duo but as I said, you can pick one and totally go solo!

2. A Bong

It’s a pretty simple costume that can be bought or make yourself with some foam and paint! Just make sure that you air it out first. There’s a few for sale on eBay. People are sure to get a kick out of the dancing bong at the party. Just make sure that no one tries to light your bowl. Maybe you should wear a sign that says “No Smoking…”

3. Weed Leaf/Weed Princess

This is something that could work for both genders. If you’re a guy, you can decorate with foam, green clothes, and spray paint. It’s a pretty simple costume. But for ladies, Halloween is definitely about less being more. Since places like Spencers sell weed leis, you can purchase some of these and glue them to some booty shorts and top. Get some cool green body paint and go to town! Also, don’t forget the crown! ;)

4. Scooby & Shaggy

Here’s another duo one. Or you could go as just Shaggy because his character is fairly well known in the stoner community. Definitely much better as a duo. And plus, you can go around asking everyone for Scooby Snacks and hopefully some of those snacks have bud in them!

5. The Dude

People definitely know the Dude! The sweater can be found on eBay and Amazon and his baggy pants and sunglasses are everywhere. Not only that but you know that the Dude can handle whatever happens and so can you this Halloween!

As always, be safe and don’t get in to trouble! It’s supposed to be about having fun! I don’t need any of my fellow stoners getting hurt! <3

Poll: Majority Supports Legalizing Marijuana In Maryland

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, October, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
poll-support-legalization-in-maryland-thcfIs it just me, or does it seem like every time I turn around there is another state coming out with a poll where a majority of those polled support legalizing marijuana? It’s only a matter of time before those numbers translate to Election Day victories across the nation. It’s truly an exciting time for marijuana reform supporters. Below is information about the poll, along with a link to donate to the Marijuana Policy Project, which I encourage all readers to consider:
 
A new poll jointly commissioned by MPP and the ACLU of Maryland shows that a majority of Marylanders support legalizing marijuana for adults and regulating it similarly to alcohol! If you live in Maryland, please let your legislators know that you are among the 53% of voters who believe adults should be allowed to use a substance that is objectively safer than alcohol.
 
In 2014, representatives in Annapolis will be considering several bills that propose a more sensible approach to marijuana policies. Voters are fully behind all of these reforms. In addition to showing majority support for making marijuana legal, our poll also found that 68% of Marylanders support a civil penalty for the simple possession of up to an ounce of marijuana. This is up 11 percentage points since our poll just two years ago!
 
Replacing jail time with a fine — or no penalty — would free up police, prosecutor, and court resources to focus on serious crimes. In 2011, there were 24,298 arrests in Maryland for marijuana, 90% of which were for mere possession! Legislators need to know what their constituents know – that is time to stop arresting adults for the possession of a substance that about half of all Americans have used.

The Problem with Edible Strengths

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, October, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
marijuana-edibles-dose-issies
If you've never eaten anything with weed in it, stop reading this article right now, go find a bud brownie, and eat it. Then come back and continue reading. Eating your pot is one of the best ways that you can get stoned. It's a completely different high, not to mention you kill two birds with one stone by curing the munchies before you even get them.
 
I've never been in a dispensary. I make my edibles by dumping whatever amount of bud butter I feel like. I have no labeling system and from what I've heard, neither do the dispensaries. This is somewhat of a bummer because everyone should be using the same system to rate the strength of their weed food. Not everyone wants to sink in to their couch for hours. Some people really do need just the right amount of weed to make the pain that they feel go away.
 
My knowledge of the current system of rating the potency of edibles goes something like this: sometimes, something is a XXX. Other times, it's a 10X. You might see 1000X. I have no idea what any of that means. Why is there a need for X's? Salvia and spice are labeled with X's so someone needs to explain to me why the medical weed for patients is labeled with the same letter as the fake, dangerous trash that is sold at the corner gas station that may or may not be a heroin front.
 
What's wrong with keeping it simple? A scale of 1-10 has never really failed before so why not have a universal way to label the edibles on that scale? An edible at a 1 level would be the weakest strength. Now, I understand that everyone who makes the edibles makes them with different amounts of weed. So say that there's a banana bread loaf at the dispensary with a label of 1 on it. Now, on the label, it should say that there's y-amount to x-amount of grams under the one. If it's a weak loaf, let's say 7-10 grams. That would be labeled with a 1. Makes sense right? Then, the 2 label would be 10-15 grams or so, you know?
 
A system like that would be a much easier way to tell patients what they're going to get out of their medicine. And as I said before, putting the same letter rating on my weed as that crappy spice is just disrespectful, am I right? ;) Having a universal system will make selling the edibles so much easier to the patients who aren't exactly sure of the doses they're getting rather than having to refer to an absurd amount of x's. Patients need to know how much medicine is in their food and I think that a simple number system would be perfect for that!
