Marijuana Blamed For NASCAR Drivers Death

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 26th 2014 by THCFinder
mj-blamed-for-nascar-drivers-deathA very tragic thing happened in NASCAR recently when driver Kevin Ward Jr. was killed after he was hit by a car driven by another driver, Tony Stewart. The facts are that Kevin Ward Jr. got out of his car in the middle of a race to confront Tony Stewart, and Tony Stewart’s car struck Kevin Ward Jr., killing him in the process. After an investigation was conducted, a grand jury decided to not press charges against Tony Stewart. Mainstream media, and the district attorney overseeing the investigation, used the tragedy as an opportunity to blame marijuana. Per USA Today:
 
Toxicology reports revealed Kevin Ward Jr., was under the influence of marijuana on the night he was struck and killed by a sprint car driven by Tony Stewart, Ontario County (N.Y.) District Attorney Michael Tantillo said Wednesday.
 
At a news conference to announce that a grand jury had declined to indict Stewart in Ward’s death, Tantillo said the level of marijuana in Ward’s system was high enough to impair judgment.
 
The exact level of marijuana in Ward’s system is not known, and never may be known. But regardless, I think it’s safe to say that marijuana was not to blame for this tragedy. I have consumed A LOT of marijuana in my time on this earth, and have been VERY high many, many times. However, not once have I jumped out in front of a car moving over 100 MPH in an aggressive fashion. According to reports, Tony Stewart revved his engine while other cars were breaking. But is he to blame? Of course not, because Mr. Ward had marijuana in his system, and despite no proof of when that marijuana entered his system, marijuana is to blame. What a sad, sad scenario on so many levels. My heart goes out to Kevin Ward Jr.’s family, who has to deal with the fact that their family member’s death is being ruled as being his own fault for consuming marijuana.

Seattle's second marijuana retailer plans to open Tuesday!

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 26th 2014 by THCFinder
seattles-second-mj-storeFinally! Seattle’s second I-502, legal marijuana retailer is getting ready to open at 23rd Ave. and E. Union St. in Seattle next week.
 
Ian Eisenberg, the owner of “Uncle Ike’s” at 2310 East Union St., confirmed today that his shop is licensed and while they have “a million things that have to all come together in the meantime” they’re planning on opening Tuesday.
 
And, well, that’s all we have for now. We’ll be talking with them next week and will fill in all the details then.
 
So, for now Seattle … You’ll soon have Uncle Ike’s to buy legal weed from in addition to Cannabis City. There are of course retailers in Bothell, Tacoma, Bellingham and more. Check out the gallery above for what’s open and where.
 
The revenue picture
 
Meanwhile, according to the latest published figures from the Liquor Control Board, legal weed in Washington has grossed more than $16 million with more than $4 million in taxes going to the state.
 
There are 233 growers licensed so far, exceeding the state’s goal of 2 million square feet of canopy. While there have been supply issues over the summer, most expect the legal cannabis market to have a solid supply chain — including infused products such as edibles, drinks and hash oils — by Thanksgiving.
 
The state’s goal for this first round of licenses is to capture roughly a quarter of the marijuana market. Seems we’re slowly but surely heading in that direction … though there’s plenty of black and grey market growers, sellers and buyers who insist the legal stores won’t knock them out of the market, especially Seattle’s essentially open market.

Pa. Senate Approves Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, September, 25th 2014 by THCFinder
pa-senate-approves-medical-marijuanaThe Pennsylvania Senate on Wednesday passed a bill permitting medical marijuana in the state — despite the objections of Gov.Tom Corbett.
 
Here’s what they’re saying about the event:
  
CBS Philly:
 
The Republican-controlled Senate voted 43-7 in favor of medical marijuana. The measure was championed by state senator Daylin Leach, a suburban Philadelphia Democrat.
 
“This is going to help people who are in desperate situations,” he said.
 
AP adds:
 
The chamber's debate had been propelled by parents who believe a marijuana oil extract can help their children who suffer from seizures so debilitating that they worry about whether their child will survive another day. But proponents talked about the wider possibilities it has for treatment of other people, such as veterans suffering post-traumatic stress disorder.
 
"It is cruel and heartless to deny people the best medicine that is available," Sen. Daylin Leach, D-Montgomery, said during floor debate. "And it's time to stop treating this irrationally and saying, 'we're not going to let you have this, we're going to instead make you take far more dangerous and less effective drugs.' That's just not how we would want to be treated; it's not how we want our families to be treated."
 
The Patriot-News:
 
Children are at risk of death every day they can't access a medical-marijuana oil that has been effective in treating intractable epilepsy, said Dana Ulrich, a Berks County mother whose 7-year-old daughter has been diagnosed with the condition.
 
But she said mothers who've lobbied for medical marijuana aren't only concerned about seizures, and Wednesday's victory was bittersweet because the bill has been amended to remove a majority of the conditions the original language would've allowed for treatment.
 
"We don't want to give off the impression that this is a whole victory," she said after the vote. "There are patients all over Pennsylvania who are still going to be ignored if this becomes law."
