Study finds marijuana buffers against negative psychological effects of social exclusion

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, May, 17th 2013 by THCFinder
Research published online May 14 in Social Psychological and Personality Science has uncovered that marijuana buffers people from experiencing social pain.
 
“Prior work has shown that the analgesic acetaminophen, which acts indirectly through CB1 receptors, reduces the pain of social exclusion. The current research provides the first evidence that marijuana also dampens the negative emotional consequences of social exclusion on negative emotional outcomes,” Timothy Deckman of the University of Kentucky and his colleagues wrote in the study.
 
The four-part study, which included a total of 7040 participants and three methodologies, was based on previous research that found an overlap between physical and social pain. Acetaminophen, which is used in over-the-counter medications like Tylenol, has been found to reduce physical and social pain.
 
Aceteminophen and marijuana both affect cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain and both drugs are used to treat physical pain.

Patrick Dempsey Talks Seattle Coffee Chain: "The Next Step Is Selling Marijuana"

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Fri, May, 17th 2013 by THCFinder
"Neighborhood coffee shops are an important part of people's lives—it's a part of your everyday ritual," the charming actor said. "I want to become a certified barista and work in the stores."
 
And we certainly wouldn't mind ordering our morning coffee from McDreamy.
 
The father of three also confessed he downs five (!) cups of joe a day, but said the caffeine "doesn't really affect" him anymore.
 
NEWS: Read Dempsey's original plan to purchase the coffee chain
 
"Coffee is good for your mind—it's basically a legalized drug," he explained. "The next step is selling marijuana, of course." 
 
Well, we certainly weren't expecting the marijuana market to be Dempsey's next business venture. But would he actually consider a pickup window for your morning pot?
 
"There's a business model there," he said. "You could present it in a beautiful, elegant way: a Michelin-starred coffee shop where you can get marijuana," he quipped. 
 
Talk about taking your coffee to the highest standard.

Category: Nugs | Posted on Thu, May, 16th 2013 by THCFinder

Platinum OG - Indica

100% Indica phenotype. This strain is called Platinum due to the silvery crystal formation on GIANT buds! Anything but subtle describes the distinct odor of lemony citrus and Pinesol. Definitely full of earthy flavor, although you can certainly detect kushy notes. Very similar to True OG! Characteristic for an indica, an initial slight rush transitions to great mental and body relaxation. This Strain has an intense %u201CCouchlock%u201D effect ! Great Strain for Acute and Chronic Pain, Insomnia, Nausea and Headaches.

Congressman Tears Into AG Holder Over Marijuana

Category: Politics | Posted on Thu, May, 16th 2013 by THCFinder
During a Wednesday House oversight hearing with Attorney General Eric Holder that overwhelmingly focused on the invasive government search of Associated Press phone logs and the IRS, one House member took the opportunity to grill Holder on another Department of Justice issue that has provoked criticism from the left. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) tore into Holder over his approach to marijuana, asking why his Justice Department is “continuing to put people in jail,” even as polling shows a majority of Americans believe the plant should not be illegal:
 
One of the greatest threats to liberty has been the government taking people’s liberty for things that people are in favor of. The Pew Research Group shows that 52 percent of people do not think marijuana should be illegal. And yet there are people in jail, and your Justice Department is continuing to put people in jail, for sale, and use, on occasion, of marijuana.
 
That’s something the American public has finally caught up with. It was a cultural lag. And it’s been an injustice for 40 years in this country to take people’s liberty for something that was similar to alcohol. You have continued what is allowing the Mexican cartels power, and the power to make money, ruin Mexico, hurt our country by having a Prohibition in the late 20th and 21st century. We saw it didn’t work in this country in the 20s. We remedied it. This is the time to remedy this Prohibition, and I would hope you would do so.
