Uruguayans Can Now Register To Grow Marijuana At Home

People in Uruguay who want to grow their own marijuana at home were able to register to do so Wednesday as the government launched the latest phase in its first-of-its-kind legalization program.
 
Under a law that went into effect in May, citizens of Uruguay or legal residents who are at least 18 can grow marijuana for personal use if they register. There is a limit of six female plants, with an annual harvest of up to 480 grams.
 
Few people appeared to be rushing to register with the government on the first day. Juan Vaz, a well-known cannabis activist, said he registered and found the process easy but can understand why some might be reluctant.
 
"There are some people who might feel persecuted," Vaz said. "For many years, they grew plants in secret and it's hard to break from that way of thinking."
 
Uruguay is the first in the world to attempt to regulate the cultivation and sale of marijuana on a nationwide scale.
 
The law, passed by Parliament in December 2013, also allows for the formation of growers and users clubs and the sale by pharmacies of 40 grams of pot a month to registered users.
 
So far, no club has yet completed all the requirements to begin operations but at least four have started the process. President José Mujica has said the sale through pharmacies will be postponed until next year.
 
Presidential and legislative elections are scheduled for October and the major opposition candidates have signaled that they intend to repeal all or part of the law if they gain the presidency or a majority in the parliament.

NFL Upholds Josh Gordons 1 Year Suspension For Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 28th 2014 by THCFinder
josh-gordon-suspended-for-1-year-from-nflThe NFL suspended Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon for an entire year after he ‘failed’ a drug test, testing positive for marijuana. I say ‘failed’ because he took two tests. The first one he barely passed, and the second one he barely failed. The NFL has a very low threshold for a positive marijuana test compared to other sports. The NFL considers anything over 15 nanograms per milliliter to be a fail. Josh Gordon’s first test was 13.63 ng/ml, and his second was 16 ng/ml.
 
Josh Gordon appealed his suspension with the NFL, and rightfully so. Why should someone be suspended at all for having 1 ng/ml more than the threshold, especially for an entire year? To put the test result into perspective, the Olympics allow up to 150 ng/ml – ten times what the NFL allows. To say that the NFL has reefer madness is a huge understatement. Per NFL.Com:
 
“Appeals officer Harold Henderson has upheld the suspension for the 2014 NFL season of Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. The suspension is effective immediately,” the league said Wednesday in a statement.
 
Josh Gordon’s suspension is insane, especially when compared to the suspension of two games that Ray Rice got for assaulting his then fiance to the point that she was knocked unconscious. As many Josh Gordon fans and marijuana supporters pointed out, Ray Rice would have to knock out 7 more women to get the same suspension as Josh Gordon. Even more if you include preseason and playoff games. I don’t say this to be mean or insensitive, I say it to highlight the insanity that is the NFL’s marijuana policy. Shame on the NFL.

Marijuana compound may slow, halt progression of Alzheimer's

Neuroscientists found that extremely low doses of a compound found in marijuana may slow or halt the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
 
A study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease reported that neuroscientists using a cellular model of Alzheimer's found low doses of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) reduced the production of amyloid beta, and prevented abnormal accumulation, which is one of the early signs of the memory-loss disease.
 
“Decreased levels of amyloid beta means less aggregation, which may protect against the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Since THC is a natural and relatively safe amyloid inhibitor, THC or its analogs may help us develop an effective treatment in the future,” said lead author Chuanhai Cao, a neuroscientist and PhD at the Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute and the University of South Florida College of Pharmacy.
 
Neuroscientists also found THC enhanced mitochondrial function which is needed to supply energy, transmit signals and maintain a healthy brain.
 
“THC is known to be a potent antioxidant with neuroprotective properties, but this is the first report that the compound directly affects Alzheimer’s pathology by decreasing amyloid beta levels, inhibiting its aggregation, and enhancing mitochondrial function,” Cao said.
 
The research noted that the therapeutic benefits of THC at low doses appear greater than the associated risks of toxicity and memory impairment.  
 
“Are we advocating that people use illicit drugs to prevent the disease? No,” study co-author Neel Nabar said. “However, these findings may lead to the development of related compounds that are safe, legal, and useful in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.”
 
As many as 5 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, with the numbers projected to reach 14 million by 2050, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
