Feds: Tribes Can Grow And Sell Marijuana On Tribal Lands

Category: News | Posted on Fri, December, 12th 2014 by THCFinder
growing-on-tribal-landsI will never forget the first time I heard the story of the Oglala Sioux Nation’s efforts to grow hemp. The Oglala Sioux tribe is a recognized sovereign nation by the United States government, yet the feds prevented the Oglala Sioux people from growing hemp. I remember tearing up when I heard Alex White Plume speak about how the feds came and essentially stole the tribes hemp harvest at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. It was a harvest that the tribe was relying upon as a cash crop, and without it they suffered many economic hardships.
 
Zoom forward to today, where a historic position was taken by the United States government. Per the Los Angeles Times:
 
Opening the door for what could be a lucrative and controversial new industry on some Native American reservations, the Justice Department on Thursday will tell U.S. attorneys to not prevent tribes from growing or selling marijuana on the sovereign lands, even in states that ban the practice.
 
The new guidance, released in a memorandum, will be implemented on a case-by-case basis and tribes must still follow federal guidelines, said Timothy Purdon, the U.S. attorney for North Dakota and the chairman of the Attorney General’s Subcommittee on Native American Issues.
 
This of course is not true legalization, as it’s just guidance from the federal government via a memo, which can change at any moment without notice. This isn’t the first time this administration released a memo in regards to loosening marijuana enforcement, and that didn’t prove to be as sincere as people first thought. However, today’s news is still significant nonetheless. How many tribes will take advantage of the new policy is unclear, but it could potentially lead to legal marijuana being grown and sold within state borders that many thought (myself included) would never allow legal marijuana. Yes, technically a state like South Dakota is not a nation, it’s a state, and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is separate, but it would still involve legal marijuana within the borders of South Dakota should the Oglala Sioux people proceed to growing marijuana.
 
From reports I’ve read, Indian tribes were responsible for lobbying for the new policy. There was a lot of confusion when the news broke, with many activists scrambling to see who was working on it. I’m glad that Native Americans took the lead on this issue, and that it got results. I have to assume that just because marijuana is grown and sold on a reservation, it doesn’t mean that the marijuana will be allowed off the tribal land. So if/when sales begin, be aware of this fact. I am now dreaming of the day when I can go to the Grande Ronde casino near where I live, buy some legal marijuana, and enjoy a concert or two.

Five Golden Rules For Cannabis In Illegal States

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, December, 12th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-golden-rules
1) Try to avoid selling cannabis. While it may seem like a good idea to get extra money, there’s a lot of serious consequences that can come from selling bud. If you do choose to sell it, at least make sure that you’re being careful. Only sell to people that you know and avoid taking new customers that aren’t someone you’ve dealt with personally before. In the age of technology, it can be tempting to sell weed via social media. Terrible idea. You never have any idea of who’s sitting behind the other screen.
 
2) Don’t share bud with minors. Giving minors cannabis has serious penalties and shouldn’t be done. An adult giving cannabis to a minor is a serious offense. Plus, you don’t want to be held responsible if something else happens to the minor. Children do not handle cannabis the same way that adults do. Be sure that you’re only giving cannabis to those that are over the age of 18.
 
3) Avoid crossing borders with cannabis in your possession. Having bud with you in the car is risky enough but carrying it across state lines adds another charge on to your sentence if you get caught. Especially the international borders… Be sure that the car is clean!
 
4) If you happen to be driving, do not smoke in the car. If you get pulled over, the first thing the cops will smell is cannabis and in most places, that will give them reason to search your car. While some cops will let you go with a simple “No I don’t have marijuana on me”, some will push the matter. It’s best to avoid smoking in the car and be sure that you’re not leaving empty bowls and roaches laying around either.
 
5) Growing cannabis has very serious consequences. If you get caught with a grow, you can go to jail for a long time. Only states that legally allow for the growing of marijuana should be grown in. If you live in an illegal state, at least be sure to take serious precautions when setting up your grow room.

Stoner Christmas Songs

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, December, 11th 2014 by THCFinder

stoner-christmas-songs

Christmas carols are some of the worst songs ever. Mostly because they’ve all be overplayed in pharmacies and corner stores since before most of us can remember. Yes, celebrities release new songs for Christmas every year but they’re usually remakes and they all sound the same. Not a huge deal but as stoners, we should get our own Christmas songs, am I right?

 

  • “Vaporizer For Christmas”

YouTube Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KkfT2pGsWg

 

Super obnoxious, somewhat trippy, this video will definitely make you laugh. Not only that but they actually explain the benefits of vaping your weed in the video. It’s pretty funny, a bit educational, and better than 75% of the Christmas songs playing today.

 

  • “Carol Of The Buds”

YouTube Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KuUy6tuyBw0

I actually laughed out loud while watching this one. The costumes are on point, the song sounds good, the lyrics are funny. These guys put a lot of time and effort in to making this video and it definitely deserves some recognition.

 

  • “Oh Chronic Tree”

YouTube Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oA9Hm3zcH5k

It’s by Afroman. So there’s your first clue as to why this song is awesome. If you need more convincing, the song is done in the classic Afroman style. Lots of coughing, laughing, and ridiculous lyrics. 

 

  • “12 Days Of Ganja Christmas”

YouTube Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFbeg6DxpuQ

Based off of the 12 Days Of Christmas song, this catchy jingle caters to what a pothead might want for Christmas. Blunts, bags, and calls from the weed man? Yeah it sounds pretty accurate. Watch the video and you’ll find yourself saying “Oh damn, I want that”.

 

  • “Jingle Bell Rock (Marijuana Paradoy Christmas Song)

YouTube Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=laY67grUmNU

Even though the video claims that no marijuana was used in the making of the video, that’s kind of hard to believe. These two chicks execute this song perfectly, with clever lyrics and pretty decent singing. They even wore costumes to record the video and stood in front of a Christmas tree.

Outdoor Marijuana Cultivation Bans In California Are A Bad Idea

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 11th 2014 by THCFinder
outdoor-marijuana-cultivation-bansOutdoor marijuana cultivation, or ‘sun grown’, is cheaper than indoor cultivation, and if done properly, is much more environmentally friendly compared to indoor cultivation. There are parts of California that are perfect for outdoor cultivation, which is why so many people have done it over the years. However, outdoor cultivation has been under attack from local governments in California. There are more and more proposed bans on outdoor cultivation popping up these days. Per Marijuana Business Daily:
 
More than 300 people, mostly medical cannabis patients and growers, attended a meeting in Yuba County, California, as supervisors considered a ban on outdoor marijuana cultivation.
 
About 45 people spoke during the event in which supervisors considered three ordinances from other counties – Sacramento, Shasta and Fresno – that all ban outdoor grows in the wake of court rulings allowing them to impose severe restrictions on cannabis cultivation, according to the Appeal-Democrat.
 
Patients told county supervisors a ban on outdoor grows was a bad idea during a three-hour workshop, while others were in favor of the moratorium, saying they’ve seen their neighborhoods turned into a “war zone,” the newspaper said.
 
There are many growers in California that cannot afford to grow marijuana indoors due to high equipment costs. There are also other growers that simply don’t have an adequate facility to cultivate marijuana indoors. Banning outdoor cultivation will essentially shut them down, leaving them without medicine, and leaving other patients that rely on them without medicine. That is unacceptable.
