Is Marijuana Shaming A Real Thing?

Category: Odd | Posted on Sat, October, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

raskal og marijuana strainWith the social justice movement gaining more and more momentum, the word “shaming” continuously gets thrown around a lot. There is fat-shaming, skinny-shaming, slut-shaming, virgin-shaming, tattoo-shaming, shame-shaming. Shame-shaming-shaming, and everything else under the sun. While shaming people for their ways of life or their appearance is certainly something that is completely unnecessary and immature, is marijuana-shaming really a thing?

A high school student from Ohio, Hank Sigel, accused the administration of marijuana-shaming when his friend, Hayden Long, commit suicide after being caught with marijuana by the school. According to Sigel, the school was negligent in their dealings with Hayden, and said that the threats by the school were overboard.

However, is this really shaming? I mean, isn’t shaming downplaying what is going on here? To shame someone means to demean or embarrass someone for a choice or appearance, but that isn’t what is going on here. The student was threatened with suspension, criminal charges, a driver’s license suspension, and sports suspension. Furthermore, most public universities won’t accept him, and he is immediately disqualified from most student loans.

This isn’t shaming. This isn’t just embarrassing or demeaning a person (which, yes, is still certainly wrong). This is physically and actively destroying their lives. This is treating a high school student as a gang member. This is treating a kid as an adult. This an active injustice on the part of our legal system, not some kind of social injustice done with unkind words or gestures.

New Poll: Swing States Support the Legalization of Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

Some of the more gutsy 2016 presidential candidates may soon take a more pot-friendly position in regard to their campaigns after seeing the results from the latest Quinnipiac University poll. The survey found an impressive majority of voters in the swing states of Florida and Ohio support the elimination of prohibition in the United States, while the voting population in Pennsylvania remains divided on whether tax-paying citizens should be allowed to use recreational marijuana.

Although there is a lot of focus these days on women and weed, there are apparently more men in swing states that support the legalization of marijuana than women, according to the poll. But despite the gender gap, most of the respondents agree on one thing: they probably wouldn’t even smoke weed “recreationally” if it were legal.

"If men are from Mars and women are from Venus, then the Red Planet might be the more spacey place," Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a statement. "That's because men are more likely than women to support legalization of marijuana for recreational use. Not surprisingly support for the change is linked to age, with younger voters more likely to see personal use of pot as a good thing."

3 Bills Signed by Gov. Brown Create New Rules for Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 9th 2015 by THCFinder

Nearly two decades after Californians legalized marijuana for medical use and a year before they may also approve it for recreational purposes, Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday approved statewide rules on the growth, transport and sale of the drug.

Signing a trio of bills, the governor created a regulatory system that could be adapted to widespread cannabis use if voters make it legal by passing a ballot initiative next year.

Marijuana advocates have proposed multiple measures for the ballot, and several groups are working to find one they believe will most appeal to voters.
