Sam Hurd: I smoked pot all day, shared it

Sam Hurd will be sentenced Wednesday for his role in a 2011 drug trafficking operation, and now that he’s meeting the prospect of a life in prison head on, the former Cowboys and Bears receiver is opening up about everything from his role in the process to drug culture in the NFL.
Speaking with The MMQB, Hurd said he spent the last few years of his career — which began in 2006 as an undrafted free agent out of Northern Illinois — smoking high-grade marijuana “all day, every day.”
“Whatever was considered the loudest weed in California — I wanted a notch above that,” Hurd told the site, saying he would import two to 10 pounds at a time from the West Coast. “I had educated myself on different strains and potencies and growing techniques. I was very selective. It was like wine.”
Hurd also said he smoked marijuana and sold it at cost to several friends during his time in Dallas, including “20 to 25” teammates on the Cowboys.
Hurd didn’t mention any players by name, aside from former Cowboys safety Patrick Watkins, but according to his estimate, which he called “conservative,” at least half of the NFL smokes weed during the season and can avoid testing positive for the substance by knowing when the annual sample will be collected.
“Early in his career,” Michael McKnight wrote for The MMQB, “Hurd had been entrusted with a secret known by only a few of Dallas’s veterans: Tests for marijuana occurred at roughly the same time each year.”

For those patients that work 8 hour days or just don't have time to sit around and smoke, it can be difficult to mediate properly. Sometimes, people just can't get enough weed in to their system to feel better, such as some people that are afflicted by PTSD. Some are beginning to discover a better way for extreme sufferers to mediate. A patch, put on one's skin, that puts THC and CBD in to the bloodstream via transdermal delivery.
As with smoking or eating cannabis, the amount of patch used depends on the patient using it. Everyone has a different tolerance to THC and CBD so the size of the patch depends on the user. The cannabinoids in the patch are directly delivered to the bloodstream, creating extreme relief. The patch releases the stored cannabinoids over the course of 8 hours. Even after the 8 hours are up and the patch is removed, the effects are still felt. This benefits people who work long hours yet still need to medicate or patients that deal with extremely high tolerances and apparent resistance to smoking THC.
Not only is cannabis effective in the patch form, but other methods are equally effective in treating symptoms by transdermal delivery. Soaps and lotions are very effective for people with joint pain and arthritis. The lotions especially are good for specific areas of pain, due to the anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis. The patch is recommended for patients that need higher doses of medicine continuously. This method is extremely fast acting and effective, allowing the patient to go about their day normally.
Basic medicine, such as using cannabis as a topical treatment, would be so beneficial to people. Not everyone can afford health insurance or to even go to the doctor in the first place. Having a plant like cannabis that can grow virtually anywhere would save thousands, if not millions, of dollars that people are forced to spend on costly medical care. Cannabis medicine can be virtually free to people who need it. Products like topical cannabis can help immensely and it's so sad that it's not being utilized to it's full potential.
What strain is packed in your blunt today?

Denver Investigators Use Nasal Ranger Smelling Device To Find Marijuana Odors
Category: Odd | Posted on Wed, November, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
Have you seen someone using the device that is shown in the picture in the upper right hand corner of this article? If so, did you wonder what in the world is that person doing? Apparently, a person is walking around Denver, Colorado using a device similar to that one trying to hunt down marijuana odors. Yes, it’s a real job that someone does, and yes, there is a device that can give you superhero-like smelling abilities.
According to the Huffington Post:
In Denver, when a complaint is filed about marijuana odor in an area, the Department of Public Health’s Ben Siller is called out with his field olfactometer to sniff around and see if the law has been broken.
Siller, who has been investigating odor complaints for 26 years, uses the department’s Nasal Ranger device to determine how strong the odor is and if a violation has occurred — which it turns out is rare. The Denver Post reports that the odor has to reach a level of 8:1 or greater which can mean a fine of up to $2,000. But that hasn’t happened since 1994.
The fact that government money is being spent to fund a guy with a smelling device who is walking around looking for marijuana odors is kind of weird to me. I personally think that money could be better spent elsewhere. If a fine hasn’t been handed out since 1994, how do they justify keeping this position? How do you feel about it? If there was a ‘Nasal Ranger’ operating in your area, how would you react? Given, there hasn’t been a fine handed out in almost 20 years, but isn’t that reason enough to just get rid of the position? I look forward to your comments.
