Marijuana Ads Threaten Anti-Herb Protesters
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, November, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
While cannabis gains more support from the citizens, the media is becoming an outlet for pro-marijuana ads. Since 58% of Americans support legalizing the plant, it's become the proper time to begin promoting through advertisements that are put on blast for everyone to see. Now that the ads are being put out, those against the plant are beginning to worry... For all the wrong reasons.
The argument that protestors give against the ads being published is that they will increase the use of marijuana among young users. If this was, in fact, a valid argument, then the beer ads should be pulled off the air as well because those are far more pushy about using the product advertised than the cannabis ads. While alcohol commercials depict either classy lifestyles or fun times at the beach, the cannabis ads look more like something that would be seen on a doctors office wall.
Since the ads are being run to promote citizens voting "yes" on certain bills passing cannabis, they are protected by the First Amendment. Thankfully, the ads are designed to change a low and they have to be allowed since freedom of speech is still one of the rights we have left. But again, the protesters have some rebuttal. Instead of seeing the positive change, all their eyes portray is the allowance of an illegal substance that they really know nothing about. They always come back to the fact that they feel that they're defending their kids.
Marijuana may not be good for child consumption. There's definitely more research needed on that topic for sure. However, by blocking out the world for children will prevent them from developing the coping skills needed to survive in the world today. If the parents think that by not allowing their children to see the opposite opinion will "save" them, they're very wrong. Kids are extremely smart. Whether they are sheltered while growing up or not, when they are old enough, they will make their own choice, regardless of what the parent thinks.
Utah Doctors Endorse Legalizing Medical Cannabis For Childrens Epilepsy
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, November, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
Three Utah doctors, including a neurologist from the University of Utah, have announced their support for allowing medical cannabis extracts (such as tinctures) and oils to be used by children who suffer from seizures.
In a letter sent to the state’s Controlled Substances Advisory Committee, pediatric neurologist Dr. Francis Filloux said that liquid forms of medical cannabis high in cannabinoids are a promising option for treating children with epilepsy. He says that refusing to legalize the substance would be “making the decision to limit access of our children to a potentially life-improving therapy”.
State Representative Gage Froerer, a Republican from Huntsville, will be introducing a measure in the upcoming legislative session which would legalize medical cannabis extracts for children with epilepsy. His proposal would allow cannabis products such as cannabis oils to be imported and exported in the state, as long as they have relatively low levels of THC.
Advocates in Utah should be contacting their lawmakers – which they can look up by clicking here - and urge them to support this commonsense move towards allowing children with epilepsy to use a natural, nonlethal and nonnarcotic treatment to their condition.

Thanksgiving Canna-Recipes; Pumpkin Pie
Category: Recipes | Posted on Tue, November, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
The main meal of Thanksgiving is the most important but it's not a holiday without dessert. Pie is the most popular choice, plus some whipped cream and some eggnog. The following will give you a delicious recipe for cannabis pumpkin pie that's sure to make everyone ready for a second take on the dinner you all eat earlier.
What You'll Need;
1 cup half-and-half
1/3 cup melted Cannabutter
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 cups canned pumpkin, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp ground ginger
Whipped cannabis cream, for topping
1 (9-inch) unbaked pastry shell
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grab a large mixing bowl and add in the cream cheese. Beat it with a hand mixer and then proceed to add the pumpkin. Continue to beat until the two are combined. Add in the sugar and salt. Continue to mix thoroughly. Once the salt and sugar are mixed in, add the eggs, melted cannabutter, and half-and-half. Gradually add in the cinnamon, ginger, and vanilla. Beat all of the ingredients together until they're very well combined and pour the filling in to the pie crust. Put it in to your preheated oven for about an hour, or at least until the center of the pie has set. Remove the pie from the oven and allow it to cool. You can even make cannabis whipped cream to top it with! Or just regular cream. Either way, you'll love it!
