Colorado Traffic Fatalities At Historic Lows

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 12th 2014 by THCFinder
colorado-traffic-fatalities-down
Among the arguments for keeping weed illegal, there was one that went on about how dangerous drugged drivers are. People were worried about us stoners getting all potted up and driving like the crazy maniacs that marijuana turns us in to... When reality, the only problem with stoned drivers is that they forget that stoplights don't actually turn green and that the drive-thru doesn't stay open until 3am. Stoned drivers are (for the most part) pretty harmless. The main goal of their adventure? Get to where they're going without getting pulled over. Which means that a stoned driver will do whatever they can to avoid police interaction, which also means following all of the traffic laws.
 
Anti-cannabis groups may try to throw weight around with statistics like in 2001, there was a surge in the number of drivers that were found to have smoked weed. They also go on to quote studies that show an increase in the number of drivers testing positive for cannabis that were also involved in fatal accidents. In addition, there was also information released that even before Washington opened the first legal cannabis store that the number of stoned drivers jumped by a third. Don't be scared of these numbers though... The testing process for these drivers only includes marijuana metabolites. That's different than inebriation. Marijuana Metabolites can stay in the human body for days after marijuana's effects wear off. Those same metabolites can stay in the system for weeks, throwing these statistics way off. All these tests mean is that the user has smoked some weed at some point over the last couple of days/weeks.
 
The fatalities in Colorado are lower than the 13-year average and researchers are saying that it's the safest year so far on Colorado highways since 2002. The thought is that drivers are substituting their alcohol for cannabis instead. Since cannabis doesn't have the same blinding effects as alcohol, there aren't as many accidents because there aren't as many people drinking. Hopefully, the number of accidents will continue to decrease, only showing that cannabis isn't contributing to problems but actually solving them.

Las Vegas Sees Plenty Of Applications For Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Tue, August, 12th 2014 by THCFinder
las-vegas-dispensariesThe medical cannabis industry is about to dramatically expand in the State of Nevada. The State of Nevada is currently accepting applications for medical cannabis businesses. The largest market for medical cannabis businesses in Nevada will obviously be Las Vegas. Las Vegas will allow 12 medical cannabis dispensaries to receive licenses and operate. So far, competition has been stiff. Per Marijuana Business Daily:
 
Roughly 47 groups have thrown their hats in the ring for dispensary permits. Given that Las Vegas will ultimately allow just 12 dispensaries, at least 35 applicants will be rejected. The city received a total of 63 applications by last week’s deadline for medical marijuana business licenses.
 
There’s a lot at stake for the medical cannabis industry in Las Vegas. Whenever there are so many more applications for medical cannabis businesses than there are licenses available, I get leery. The criteria for a business to get a license likely won’t be who is going to do the best job, it will be either who is willing to pay the most money, or who wins a lottery.
 
When that happens, people that would be best at operating the business and have the most applicable knowledge may not get picked, and could get passed up for someone that is simply lucky, or has deep pockets without any past experience in the cannabis industry. With Las Vegas dispensaries recognizing the medical cards of other states, business will likely be booming for yet another industry in the vacation destination.

Cherry Pie - Indica

Cherry Pies parents are Grand Daddy Purple and OG Kush. With buds that are dense and full or orange hairs and a touch of purple, the scent of this strain smells of sweet and sour cherry pie. The high has been known to come on in minutes and stick around for a couple hours. Great for stress, pain relief and depression.

Marijuana In The States

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, August, 12th 2014 by THCFinder
marijuana-in-the-states
The cannabis industry stands to make people a whole lot of money, once it is allowed to be a regulated substance. With the amount of taxes to be made, plus the revenue itself from sales, the plant has the potential to pull us out of a massive amount of debt. Not only that but the release of non-violent marijuana offenders would save states millions on prison money and law enforcement, letting police and jailers spend their time attending to actual criminals, not a bunch of stoned out youths. But how badly is the government really screwing up by not allowing this plant to flourish?
 
Let's talk money... After all, the language of green is one that everyone speaks. In this case, each state would make money from legalizing cannabis. Some states stand to make far more than others because of their heavy density of cannabis usage. For example, California stands to make $105 million in tax revenue due to legalized weed. All of that money going to help schools, roads, and public programs, not to mention the massive amount of jobs that would come from a legal marijuana industry. Following not-so-closely behind California is New York, which comes in at a staggering $65 million (California, what are you DOING?!). Imagine all of that money going towards better roads and nicer schools, free lunches for kids and hundreds of jobs? Not to mention the positive effects that cannabis has on society as a whole.
 
There is someone getting arrested for cannabis use once every 38 seconds. So by the time I finish writing this blog, at least ten people will have been arrested for smoking a plant. Doesn't that just seem a little messed up? In addition, there will be $14,100,000,000 spent on preventing marijuana use per year. That includes the money that Feds need to raid dispensaries, grow houses, and homes of the people that it should be protecting. Plus the money that is spent on housing these "criminals"? Absolutely ridiculous. All of that could be spent elsewhere, on making the world a better place for the ones that will follow in our footsteps.
 
Marijuana has been here for thousands of years. It was here long before us and it will be here long after we've killed ourselves off. It is a part of this planet and is not to be treated like some man made monstrosity, like cigarettes, alcohol, and pollution. Arresting innocent people for smoking a plant is just simply a waste of time, We can only keep our fingers crossed in hopes that the government will just let marijuana go and study it for the miracle plant that it is.

Bubba Kush - Indica

A very sweet, earthy strain that is almost pure Indica. Bubba Kush provides an intense and relaxing high that starts in your head and moves down into your body. It is a cross between the two popular strains Bubble Gum and Kush, and distinct enough to earn its own name.
