How to Get High featuring Cheech Marin
Northern Lights (Indica)
Northern Lights is renowned for its ability to be grown very easily. The strain's reputation also comes from the fact that it has won competitions such as the Cannabis Cup. The #5 strain was first entered into competition 1989 when several seeds were mailed from the U.S.A. to Amsterdam. The strain quickly dominated the Cannabis Cup, winning in 1989, 1998, and again in 2009. It is a cross of Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa.
New Medical Marijuana Study on Executive Functioning Lauded as First of Its Kind
There are already over 1.2 million medical marijuana users in the United States who seek treatment for a variety of debilitating symptoms from pain to epilepsy. That number may grow on Tuesday when voters in a number of states will decide whether or not to legalize marijuana possession for medicinal purposes. This may feel like a modern-day issue, where generations of Americans are afforded legal access to medical marijuana for the first time. And beyond legalization, this move may validate marijuana’s medicinal utility to many individuals.
But of course, this is not a new idea.
From 1851 to 1942, marijuana was included in the U.S. Pharmacopeia, which identified and standardized the identity, strength and quality of medicines. Regular submissions detailing the medicinal utility of marijuana were made until pressure from the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (an early predecessor of the DEA) forced its omission. Then, all was quiet.
Lemon Diesel (Hybrid)
Bred by Green Lantern Seeds, Lemon Diesel is the child of California Sour and Lost Coast OG. This cannabis strain grows tall with dense buds, and usually fills in most during the last couple weeks of growth. Its leaves are long and broad with purple-gray color during maturity. Flowering time is generally 9-10 weeks with a THC content up to 14% and CBD of 0.23%.
Why Marijuana DUIs are a Problem Right Now (For You)
Far from being the ideal companion for a long road trip, cannabis is currently one of the least-best friend for motorists—and will remain to be regardless of what happens with the recreational-marijuana legalization measures on the ballot in five states tomorrow.
Like it or not, stoned driving is a thing. Those neat studies that show stoned drivers are safer than drunk drivers are indeed neat, but for the moment, they don’t matter. (As it is, a lot of things are better than a drunk driver—which doesn’t necessarily make them great.)
Police and prohibitionists like to point to a study, conducted by our friends at the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, that revealed a big jump in the number of drivers involved in fatal crashes testing positive for marijuana in Washington state.
