Cannabis Food Truck In Seattle?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, May, 28th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-food-truck-in-seattle
These days, everything is fast and on the go. Food, friends, jobs, everything. The internet has made everyone extremely impatient, not to mention the massive amounts of people that are just... Everywhere! So say that you work in a busy city, where traffic is always an issue, and you need to find a good spot to grab a bite to eat while still being able to get out of the office. For workers in Seattle that need some food (and maybe a little afternoon pick-me-up), there's the possibility of a cannabis food truck starting to patrol the streets, selling delicious cannabis treats.
 
The Seattle based company is called Magicalbutter.com. While the company spokespeople say that they're not quite ready for business, the truck is definitely in the works. The law in Seattle still bans public marijuana consumption as well as saying that cannabis businesses must have a set location and a legitimate address, neither of which a food truck would posses... Unless it was part of a storefront? The plan still needs work and the laws may make it difficult for the truck to become reality but the motivation of MagicalButter.com isn't going to stop any time soon!
 
In addition to the laws in Washington, there have also been reports of edible-related deaths in Colorado, causing an uprising of caution when it comes to ingesting cannabis in food. The reports say that the deaths were "related", not actually "caused" so there is still some speculation as to the events leading to the deaths, as there has never been a death caused by cannabis in the history of our society. There has also been an increase in child visits to the ER, having ingested food containing cannabis. Of course when the plant is put in to things like cookies, gummy worms, and peanut butter, it's extremely important to keep them far out of reach of children.
 
The truck is still in the works and may not appear on the streets for another few years. But don't worry, the company will host private events on private properties so those stoners that are interested in cannabis infused peanut butter and jelly sandwiches won't be let down! Even though a mobile cannabis eatery sounds great, the ideas of these companies are starting to exceed the development of the laws. Hopefully, politics will catch up with these innovative ideas sooner rather than later!

Five Lies About Cannabis

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, May, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
5-lies-regarding-cannabisCannabis has had a bad name since 1906. There are hundreds of lies about the plant, when it reality, the only bad thing about it is getting caught with it! Cannabis benefits all different kinds of people, from recreational users who just want to unwind to cancer patients suffering through chemotherapy. Of course we couldn't include all of the lies that people have made up about cannabis so we picked a few to debunk!
 
1. It'll kill you.
Chances are, you're not going to die from cannabis consumption. You have a higher chance of being eaten by a shark and even those odds are low. Most people who ingest a good amount of cannabis end up passing out on the couch or eating all of the food that you just bought at the grocery store. No, cannabis is less dangerous then most of the stuff you find in your medicine cabinet.
 
2. Cannabis is the gateway drug.
No, it's a person's inability to say "no thanks" that is the gateway. Cannabis has been given a negative name and is then associated with other negative things (people assume that every person that sells weed must also deal coke, heroin, and meth). This terrible misconception is taught at a young age, deterring young people from even giving the plant a chance. Cannabis is NOT a gateway drug but instead is used as a scapegoat for people who have no backbone.
 
3. It's illegal for a good reason!
What reason exactly? In all of my time blogging about cannabis, I have never heard a legitimate argument as to why the plant should be illegal. In fact, the hate towards cannabis makes me think that everything should be illegal. Did you know that 100% of people that drink water die? We should probably ban that shit too!
 
4. It's bad for you.
While smoking anything is sure to have a somewhat negative impact on your throat and lungs, there are many other ways to ingest cannabis that don't involve smoking it. Cannabis has actually been shown to improve brain function, the digestive system, and help manage pain relief in a safe, non-addicting manner. Not to mention that cannabis doesn't have the awful side effects that pills give certain people.
 
5. People who smoke weed are lazy, stupid, and unmotivated.
Absolutely not true! There are hundreds of upperclass people that are ripping bongs in their free time! Recently, there was a huge hype about the FBI having trouble finding computer hackers to fight cyber terrorists... Why? Because people that sit behind a computer all day, reading HTML and binary, are also smoking a joint at the same time. Since the FBI's policy states that an employee must be cannabis free for three years prior to their hire, they're having a huge issue finding employees and may be forced to remove cannabis from their policy or face falling victim to cyber terrorists. And if the FBI has to change their policy regarding pre-employment, hopefully other places will as well (including Wal-mart, CVS, and Sears).

Study: THC Reduces Methamphetamine-Induced Brain Damage

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, May, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
thc-reduces-brain-damageA new study published in this month’s issue of the journal PLoS ONE, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found that THC (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol) can reduce and even prevent brain damage caused by methamphetamine intake.
 
According to the study, titled Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol prevents methamphetamine-induced neurotoxicity, “Methamphetamine (METH) is a potent psychostimulant with neurotoxic properties. Heavy use increases the activation of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS), production of peroxynitrites, microglia stimulation, and induces hyperthermia and anorectic effects.” 
 
It continues; “Preclinical studies have shown that natural (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol, Δ9-THC) and synthetic cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptor agonists exert neuroprotective effects on different models of cerebral damage. Here, we investigated the neuroprotective effect of Δ9-THC on METH-induced neurotoxicity by examining its ability to reduce astrocyte activation and nNOS overexpression in selected brain areas.”
 
Using rat models, researchers discovered that; “Our results indicate that Δ9-THC reduces METH-induced brain damage via inhibition of nNOS expression and astrocyte activation through CB1-dependent and independent mechanisms, respectively.”
