Advocates eye legalizing marijuana in Alaska

Category: News | Posted on Sun, April, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
JUNEAU — Alaska, known for its live-and-let-live lifestyle, is poised to become the next battleground in the push to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.
 
The state has a complicated history with the drug, with its highest court ruling nearly 40 years ago that adults have a constitutional right to possess and smoke marijuana for personal use in their own homes. In the late 1990s, Alaska became one of the first states to allow the use of pot for medicinal reasons.
 
Then the pendulum swung the other direction, with residents in 2004 rejecting a ballot effort to legalize recreational marijuana. And in 2006, the state passed a law criminalizing possession of even small amounts of the drug — leaving the current state of affairs somewhat murky.
 
Supporters of recreational marijuana say attitudes toward pot have softened in the past decade, and they believe they have a real shot at success in Alaska.

Cannabis Time Capsule, 1876: Marijuana as a medicine

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, April, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
Here's a pretty interesting and surprising positive story about cannabis being used as a medicine from the Colorado Banner out of Boulder County from July 1876 -- making this the oldest Cannabis Time Capsule piece we've run.
And though the mention of marijuana is brief, it illustrates how cannabis might have been perceived differently by the public and the press before paranoia and fear over this complex and amazing plant took over.
 
The item is basically a re-write of a Boston Globe obituary about Ruth W. Burgess, who died at the age of 64. The write-up talks about how Burgess suffered from a wide range of conditions in her life starting around the age of eight. Over the course of her life, she battled seizures, paralysis of her right eye and edema (then called "dropsy").
 
But the article says she found a cure for the ailments through cannabis. Apparently, her brother was in what is now Guyana when he met a French doctor who gave him an unlabeled bottle of tincture. It turned out to be cannabis (called "Indian hemp").
Burgess saw improvements for some time and regained the use of her eye; she was also able to walk again. But her seizures eventually became much worse and her condition deteriorated.
 
Still, the article mentions that Boston doctors continued to use cannabis to treat dropsy with great success for many years.

The Ten Biggest Signs That Times Are Changing And Marijuana Legalization Is Inevitable

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, April, 27th 2013 by THCFinder

If you haven’t noticed, marijuana legalization is a mainstream issue, and the majority of Americans believe it’s the right path forward. After decades of absurd propaganda, draconian laws, and a public that believes marijuana to be the devil’s weed, it’s increasingly refreshing to see the winds of change take place. In many parts of the country and world, marijuana laws are as harsh as they’ve ever been, but no where is the situation hopeless, and it’s hard to see widespread legalization as anything less than inevitable.

 

Here’s a list of what we feel to be some of biggest signs that legalization is here to stay, and times are changing.

 

Laws are being reformed, all around the world. Countries like the Czech Republichave recently legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes, others like Uruguay are considering recreational legalization, and over half of America has either decriminalized marijuana or legalized it for medical purposes (with legislation pending in numerous states across the country), etc.. The revolution is here, and in places where it’s not as prevalent – it will be soon.
 
The majority of Americans support legalizing marijuana – a few decades ago, support was around 12%. Polling from the Pew Research Institute found that not only did 52% of Americans support legalization, but 72% feel that, despite their views, it’s inevitable. An even more recent poll, conducted by the Huffington Post and YouGov, found support among Americans to be at 57%.
