Tempe gets 1st medical marijuana dispensary

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Mon, May, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
The name, Harvest of Tempe, on the modest storefront in a south Tempe strip mall might suggest it is home to a food bank or perhaps a fresh-produce shop.
 
If you make it inside, though, your first impression might be of a secure bank.
 
That’s just what the owners want. Harvest of Tempe is the southeast Valley’s first medical-marijuana dispensary and is among a handful of dispensaries to open since Arizona voters approved the Medical Marijuana Act in 2010.
 
To enter, customers must pass through a magnetically locked door controlled from the inside. At that point, they must show their medical-marijuana card and other state-issued identification before they can pass through another locked door to the area where they meet with Harvest employees to discuss the type of marijuana needed.
 
Bulletproof glass protects the employees who handle money and dispense marijuana. Cameras record each transaction.
 
There are some samples of marijuana on display in that portion of the facility, but the rest is kept locked in a vault.
 
A large flat-screen monitor serves as a menu board, informing patients of the varieties of marijuana and edibles — brownies, cookies and candy containing the drug — that are available.
 
Reinforced concrete pillars have been installed at the rear of the building, at 710 W. Elliot Road, and similar planters have been placed in front to discourage any attempt to ram the facility with a vehicle to gain access.
 
Cameras cover the parking lots in the rear, side and front of the building, and capture anyone who enters.
 
The Ariz. law allows for the use of marijuana in the treatment of certain medical conditions, such as cancer or chronic pain.
 
“We’ve worked hard to make sure it’s not what most people would expect,” said Steve White, a member of the dispensary’s management group. “We’ve worked really hard with (Tempe) and the Police Department.
 
“We have safety precautions that are unlike any other place you’ll find in the state. We have taken it upon ourselves to create the nicest possible storefront.”

Smoking lots of marijuana lowers risk for bladder cancer, doctor says

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, May, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
A new study that spanned 11 years found that smoking marijuana may lower the chances of getting bladder cancer.
 
The study’s not been peer-reviewed yet, USA Today reported. It involved 83,000 men who smoked marijuana, cigarettes or both, Raw Story reported.
 
The findings, presented at the American Urological Association, found that men who smoked cigarettes increased their risks of bladder cancer, but that men who smoked marijuana only actually decreased their risks, Raw Story reported. Further, the study found that men who smoked both still have a higher chance of bladder cancer, but it was still a lower chance than those who smoked only cigarettes, Raw Story said.
 
“Cannabis use only was associated with a 45 percent reduction in bladder cancer incidence, and tobacco use only was associated with a 52 percent increase in bladder cancer,” the study’s author, Dr. Anil Thomas, said, Raw Story reported.
And smoking a lot of marijuana brought the greatest positive results.
 
Those who smoked marijuana more than 500 times a year had even less risk of bladder cancer than those who smoked the drug only once in a while

8 in 10 Kentuckians support medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, May, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
Nearly 8 in 10 Kentuckians think residents should be able to purchase marijuana for medical purposes if their doctor recommends it, according to the 2012 Kentucky Health Issues Poll.
 
More than 4 in 10 adults in Kentucky support having lawmakers make the decision on whether the drug should be legal for medical uses, according to the poll. About the same number say voters should decide the issue.
 
The findings have some health officials concerned.
 
“The Food & Drug Administration lists marijuana in the most restricted category of the Controlled Substance Act, meaning it has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, and is not safe for use, even under medical supervision,” said Mary Francis, director of the Assistance for Substance Abuse Prevention Center. “Marijuana plants contain over 400 chemicals, some of which are known carcinogens.”

Weed Smoking Mummies & Half Baked Monstrosities

Category: Fun | Posted on Mon, May, 13th 2013 by THCFinder

The Top Movie Monsters with a Cannabis Twist

A Mummy’s crypt dug up in central Asia recently threw up a few new ideas about cannabis use in ancient history. There are a lot of theories that get thrown around pretty regularly about how the ancient emperors of China extoled the virtuous healing properties of cannabis for everything from rheumatism to gout, but it seems to overshadow so often the fact that it was clearly used for recreation in many areas.

What the real question is however, is not whether this mummified connoisseur had arthritis or just wanted to party in the afterlife. Oh no… the real question is: what would the horror films have been like had the antagonistic ghouls and ghosts been as big fans of the reefer as this mummified fellow? The movies would certainly have been a shade different…

The Mummy

How would you feel if you woke from a 3 thousand year slumber to find that someone had made off with your dank? Well… first of all you would wonder how much you actually smoked that night 30 centuries ago, and then you’d go in search for some breakfast. But after that you would be pretty steamed about the whole affair.

Of course in the films the mummy goes in search of a reincarnation of his past love, but we now know the truth about these stoner mummies. After waiting 3 thousand years he would have no doubt set about finding a fresh batch of weed and chilling out.

Now… does anybody have any wraps?

The Mummy’s Weed Choice:

Without doubt his favourite seedbank would have been Pyramid Seeds.

Frankenstein

Perhaps if Victor Frankenstein had decided to study botany instead of chemistry and alchemy he might not have created the monstrosity that went on to terrorise him throughout his life.

During his creation of the monster, he spent a great deal of time digging up bodies, mixing chemicals and generally being surrounded by gigantic seemingly useless tesla coils (if the movie adaptations are anything to go by.)

Now, if Frankie had taken the time to RELAX then I’m sure all would have gone far more smoothly for him. Replace the chemicals with natural fertilisers and the tesla coils with grow lamps and his genetic tinkering could have resulted in something beautiful. Like a new high THC strain.

The Doctors Weed Choice:

Perhaps the good doctor would have been a fan of DNA Genetics seeds.
