Washington state approves rules for legal marijuana sales

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 18th 2013 by THCFinder
mj-wax-rules-for-selling-marijuanaIf you're looking for a new line of work, consider a rewarding career in pot in Washington state, where regulators officially opened the door Wednesday to selling marijuana legally.
 
The state Liquor Control Board adopted rules that will let 334 retail marijuana stores open across the state after almost 11 months of research and discussion since voters approved the legalization of possession of up to an ounce of pot for recreational use.
 
Applications to run the stores will be accepted starting Nov. 18.
 
The months of negotiation were needed to figure out how to balance creating a "tightly regulated and controlled" recreational marijuana market while at the same time protecting it from out-of-state imports and illegal trafficking on the so-called gray market, the board said in a statement.
 
Washington is the second state to issue rules for legal marijuana markets. Colorado approved similar rules last month.
 
Left undetailed is just how the legal market will work. The ballot initiative that Washington voters passed in November legalized private possession — but it didn't legalize public display or use.
 
And while the U.S. Justice Department has said it won't sue either state, it has made its opposition to legal sales abundantly clear. As with medical marijuana dispensaries, federal policy is to look the other way.
 
That has raised doubts — still open — that the federal government won't change banking regulations that ban banks from handling proceeds  from marijuana sales.

Five Stoner Slang Terms

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, October, 18th 2013 by THCFinder

FIVE STONEDAYS STONER TERMS

Stoners seem to have their own language sometimes and if you’re not familiar with it, we can be a little confusing. I’ve put five of the most common stoner slang terms together, along with their definitions, for your enjoyment.

1. Beat/kicked

beat/kick stonerdays terms

 

Everyone knows what a bowl tastes like when there’s no more weed left in it. So what do you say when the person after you in the rotation tries to reach for the bong? “Nah it’s kicked.” This (or “beat”) refers to a bowl that’s been completely smoked. At this point, you’re just smoking ash and resin. It tastes disgusting and everybody always dreads getting the hit before the bowl kicks.

 

2. Duckass

Have you ever smoked with a newbie smoker that slobbers all over the end of the joint or bowl? That’s what is referred to as a “duckass”. Everybody has a friend that does this or has done this in the past. Don’t slobber on the joint or the bowl please. Also, refrain from putting chapstick on until after you’re done smoking. It’s super annoying to get a soggy pass during a smoke sesh!

3. Perma-fried

In my personal experience, I am this friend. I look and act high even when I haven’t been smoking. I’m sure that most of you have a friend that does this as well, kind of like a Spicoli situation. This is what is referred to as perma-fried. The friend doesn’t even need to smoke weed at this point because they must have backup reserves of THC somewhere. Lucky us!

4. Robobaked

ROBOBAKED STONERDAYS STONER TERMS

Ever get so high that you could only do basic actions? Like maybe you could only move enough to reach for the bag of chips or your bottle of Mountain Dew? That’s called robobaked. You have officially smoked yourself to the point where your brain is on a totally different level and you can only do enough to keep yourself comfortable until the robot feeling wears off.

5. 8:40

840-STONERDAYS-STONER-TERMS

Everyone ends up missing 4:20 at some point so what do you do for your next universal smoking time? Easy! Smoke at 8:40 instead! This is the time to smoke at if you’ve unfortunately missed 4:20… Or I mean, 4:21 is acceptable as well. ;)

There you go! If you want, feel free to email your own stoner slang word and definition to me at missbotwin42o@gmail.com and if I get enough responses, I’ll make a second stoner slang! Now light up and get blazed!

Hysterical Media Dub Dabs "The Crack of Marijuana"

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 17th 2013 by THCFinder
media-calling-dabs-the-crack-of-cannabisNo article I have written generated as much controversy as one I originally entitled “The Danger of Dabs” (reprinted in HIGH TIMES May 2012 issue as “The Dawn of the Dab”).  My thesis was “The danger of dabs isn’t so much physical as it is a public relations nightmare.”  A theme that has developed from just a few news reports reveals how the media are framing butane hash oil as the latest dangerous drug endangering our teenagers.
 
ABC15 in Phoenix ran a story on a Monday entitled “‘Dabbing’ the new drug of choice for teens?“.  Following a brief explanation of what “butane hash oil” is without ever mentioning it is essentially marijuana, the bulk of the story features Shane Watson, a rehab counselor and recovering addict explaining how awful his life became because of BHO.  The story even warns parents what to look for if their child is “making ‘dab’” without mentioning the marijuana needed to make it.  The entire construction of the article is to separate hash oil from marijuana conceptually, to paint “dab” as some different drug entirely.
 
By Tuesday, ABC2 in Baltimore, ABC7 in Denver, and ABC5 in Cleveland are re-airing the story.  On Wednesday, ABC23 in Bakersfield and ABC10 in San Diego repeat the story.  The “dab” aired all over the country as any ABC affiliate needing a sensational filler story out of Arizona played the footage.
 
By Thursday, the ABC15 story made leap into the internet media as a screen grab for a story “‘Dabbing:’ Dangerous New Drug Seized in Maryland” appearing in the Towson Patch.  This story features the subtitle, “‘This is the crack of marijuana,’ one official quoted a user as saying of the concentrated butane hash oil.”  The official, Sgt. Mike Conner of the Maryland State Police, goes on to say, “It’s so potent.  It is dangerous.  People claim you can’t overdose on marijuana. In fact, you can. It’s so strong, they are passing out.”
 
“The crack of marijuana” quote then gained traction when it was re-printed in the Baltimore News Journal on Saturday.  Then, in a story called “The Best, Worst Marijuana in the World is Spreading Like Weeds” in the Fredricksburg Patch, “the crack of marijuana” quote is followed by a lead that read “A powerful, concentrated form of marijuana is quickly gaining popularity along the East Coast—but unlike typical marijuana, it may carry the risk of overdose.”
 
For reference, the story then cites California NORML’s Dale Gieringer writing in O’Shaughnessy’s (the journal of medical cannabis) that “increased use of BHO has led to an increase in hospitalizations for cannabis overdose.”  And I can attest to the fact that I’ve never seen people pass out and get wheeled away on stretchers for smoking flowers like I have at events with dabs.  There is also my own personal experience with a too-big dab that left me retching my guts all over a Los Angeles sidewalk.
