Police Donate Stolen Lamps To Sports Team

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder
police-donate-grow-lights-to-schoolWhen cops raid a cannabis grow op, they usually take everything. And by everything, I really mean everything. The plants, the pots, the lights, the irrigation systems. Everything is tarn and categorized as evidence, leaving the grower to struggle to come up with food money, forget rent and lawyer fees. But as always, the cops use this to their advantage and try to make themselves look good at the disadvantage of others. 
 
 
Take, for example, the police in Rochdale, who confiscated grow lights and then donated them to Spotland Stadium in order for the field to grow better grass. Sgt Andy Fern was the man behind the “donation” and the idea was formed after a similar situation in Notts County, who also used stolen grow lights to improve their sports playing field. Lights such as this are expensive, running almost $13,000 for this particular model. The heat from the lamps will assist the grass growth and replicate warmer conditions. 
 
 
While the head groundskeeper, 24 year old Oli Makin, has nothing but kind words to say about the donation from the police, the article which reported the story said nothing of the devastation that befell the original owner of the lights. “I can’t thank the police enough,” Makin said, truly showing how little people know (or care) about the people who are growing cannabis in order to keep a roof over their heads and food in their bellies. Growers spend thousands upon thousands of dollars in order to keep their plants healthy and happy, providing to regular citizens or patients. But inevitably, the cops break in to these grow sites, take everything that isn’t bolted to the floor (and sometimes, they even take those things as well), and leave the grower strapped for money and most of the time, in jail.
 
 
So while the Rochdale Hornets rugby team will have a beautiful field of grass to play on, the person who actually paid for those lights is sitting in a jail cell, awaiting a trial for simply growing a plant. The police on the other hand, look like heroes in the community, donating expensive equipment to people who “need” it. But in reality, the equipment is stolen and unjustly given away to sports fields. To some, the police are heroes. To those who know better, they are thieves giving out stolen merchandise… Which was a crime, last time I checked.

White Fire OG - Indica

Widely regarded as the most potent of the OG strains, Fire OG Kush delivers some of the most frosted buds known to the medical marijuana community. Pristinely crossed with the original OG Kush strain and the F2 hybrid, San Fernando Valley OG Kush, Raskals OG has truly gifted the MMJ industry with one of the best medicinal strains around. These buds look like snow-covered mountains with dancing flames of wildfire sparsely strewn about the foliage.

Could Second-Hand Pot Smoke Make You Fail a Marijuana Test?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, October, 22nd 2014 by THCFinder
2nd-hand-mj-smoke-and-drug-testsMany people assume that simply being around pot-smokers and marijuana smoke isn’t likely to result in trouble during a drug test, and that has been the general scientific consensus.
 
But as weed has gotten more potent, scientists decided to investigate if secondhand smoke from strong strains of cannabis could lead to positive drug test results.  
 
Urine tests look for a metabolite, or bodily by-product of THC, the chemical that accounts for many of marijuana’s psychoactive properties. In recent years, many strains of marijuana have been bred to contain more THC.
 
So researchers paired several regular pot smokers and nonsmokers and put them in a sealed compartment together for an hour, while one smoked a joint containing a relatively strong strain of marijuana.
 
The 12 nonsmoking participants were then tasked with peeing into a cup 13 times over the next 34 hours. Their urine was tested for 9-carboxy-THC, the marijuana metabolite commonly measured in standard drug tests.
 
The results, published this month in the Journal of Analytical Toxicology, gives nonsmokers with weed-using friends reason to breathe easy. The scientists found urine levels of this metabolite surpassed typically detectable levels (50 nanogram per milliliter) in only one experiment participant, and this happened during a brief window four to six hours after exposure.
 
Using a more sensitive test, however, which is not usually employed in the workplace, scientists could detect blood THC levels above the 20 nanogram per milliliter in several participants in the hours after exposure. But these concentrations dipped below this threshold for all participants within 24 hours, according to the study, conducted by researchers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and elsewhere.
 
Positive tests are “likely to be rare” from secondhand smoke, the authors concluded, “limited to the hours immediately post-exposure, and occurring only under environmental circumstances where exposure is obvious.” Like, for example, sealing yourself in a car with several smokers for several hours and then peeing in a cup shortly thereafter.
 
When researchers ventilated the smoking chamber, thus making the smoke fumes less concentrated, the urine levels of THC’s metabolite did not come close to reaching the 50 nanogram per milliliter threshold for any participant.

Missouri Will Start Accepting Hemp Production Applications

Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 22nd 2014 by THCFinder
accepting-hemp-applicationsHemp can be used for all kinds of things. Articles that came out this year show that hemp can be used to make super efficient batters. Hemp can also be used for building materials that absorb pollutants and insulate better than petroleum products that are currently being used. Hemp can be used as a bio fuel, and of course, hemp can be used to make clothes and paper. The hemp plant is probably the most versatile plant on the entire planet. The State of Missouri is going to start accepting applications to grow it. Per STL Today:
 
Missouri officials announced Friday they will begin taking applications from people seeking to use hemp extract to treat severe seizures, although it could be awhile before the plant is distributed.
 
The state health and agriculture departments issued procedures and guidelines to begin enforcing a new state law that allows people with severe, persistent seizures to use an oil derived from cannabis plants as a medical treatment.
 
Residents seeking to use the oil can apply through the Missouri health department. In order to use the oil, a neurologist must certify that an applicant had already tried three other treatments.
 
But hemp production for the treatment is still a ways off. The Agriculture Department announced Friday it will begin taking applications from growers on Nov. 3. The application window will be open for 30 days after which the department expects to grant two licenses.
 
I look forward to a day when Missouri will allow more than two licenses. I also look forward to a day when Missouri legalizes all forms of medical marijuana so that all patients can use it if they want to. Eventually, Missouri will legalize recreational marijuana as well, which will help the show-me state considerably by saving tax payer dollars, and generating jobs and boosting the state’s economy.

King Kush - Indica

With its background of OG Kush and Grape Ape, King Kush contains flavors of citrus, pine and kush. With a gradual but powerful high, King Kush is famous for its potency and shiny trichromes during flowering. This strain comes across as sweet and sour with its powerful and tangy grape scent, and some hints of lavender.
