Should NFL care if Broncos star Von Miller smokes marijuana?
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, July, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
OK, call Broncos linebacker Von Miller a knucklehead. If he indeed is suspended four games for use of recreational drugs, Miller has let down his teammates and fans who pay hefty ticket prices to watch Denver play football. The Post has received documentation that Miller had multiple positive tests for marijuana dating back to his rookie season in 2011.
But nobody counts marijuana as a performance-enhancing drug. If the NFL has cared so little for so long about the long-term damage caused by concussions, why should the league care how Miller chooses to relax? So long as it doesn’t adversely affect Miller’s performance on the field, I don’t think it should be any of the NFL’s business. Peter Burns of Mile High Sports Radio isn’t so lenient.
From the DUI arrest of front-office executive Matt Russell to Miller’s suspension, pending appeal, is this a serious football issue for the Broncos, or merely an image problem?

California Dems Say "No!" to Medical Marijuana Crackdown, Federal Interference in CO, WA
Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
SoCal activist Lanny Swerdlow recently notified us that the California Democratic Party passed two historic resolutions on the issue of marijuana at its Executive Board meeting in Costa Mesa on Sunday, July 21.
“The first resolution called on President Obama to (1) respect the voters of Colorado and Washington and to not allow any federal interference in the enactment of their marijuana legalization initiatives, (2) end the federal raids on patients and providers in medical marijuana states and (3) appoint a commission to look into the reform of our nation’s marijuana laws.
“The 2nd resolution calls on our state legislature to enact statewide guidelines for medical marijuana distribution that respects the rights of local municipalities to regulate and license but will also provide marijuana 'to all patients in all areas of California, rural as well as urban.'
“These are now official positions of the party and add another level of mainstream approval for medical marijuana and marijuana law reform - approval that will hold us in especially good stead when speaking with Democratic elected officials and candidates,” Swerdlow wrote.
US Attorney General Eric Holder has never said how the feds will respond to Colorado and Washington ending pot prohibition.

Best Treatment for Migraines? Marijuana
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
Marijuana is the best treatment for migraines, writes the father of internal medicine, Dr. Sir William Osler in “The Principles and Practice of Medicine” first published in 1892.
“Cannabis indica is probably the most satisfactory remedy [for migraines],” Osler wrote, agreeing with Edward Constant Seguin – the president of the New York Neurological Society and Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons professor.
Such stunning endorsements for pot come courtesy of a new online medical cannabis study program initiated by TheAnswerPage.com, which is sponsored and accredited by the Massachusetts Medical Society – the oldest continuously-operating state medical society in the United States.
Founded in 1998, TheAnswerPage began offering Continuing Medical Education (CME) courses on medical marijuana July 9. While the information on TheAnswerPage is designed mainly for physicians and healthcare professionals, a daily Q&A on medical marijuana is written for the lay person.
For example, The Answer Page asks: “How many overdose deaths have occurred from cannabis?”
The answer? “Zero. Cannabis, even in concentrated forms, is incapable of causing overdose in humans.”
