Colorado Is Funding A Marijuana Breathalyzer

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
funding-a-marijuana-breathalyzerMarijuana opponents act like when marijuana becomes legal, our roads will instantly become so unsafe that everyone should fear for their lives. The fact is, traffic fatalities are at an all time low in Colorado after they legalized marijuana. But never mind that pesky fact, clearly there is a need to find ways to fix this problem that doesn’t exist (sarcasm). That’s why the State of Colorado recently granted $250,000 to a company that creates alcohol breathalyzers to see if they can develop a similar device for marijuana. Per The Cannabist:
 
The grant, which requires matching funds from the company, will allow Lifeloc Technologies to speed development of a tool that will be marketed to law enforcement, corrections, schools and workplaces.
 
“There is no equivalent of a marijuana breathalyzer today. Law enforcement does not have a fast, reliable and non-invasive THC impairment test available at roadside,” Lifeloc president Barry Knott said in a statement.
 
The fact of the matter is there will likely never be a device that can accurately measure current marijuana impairment. Yes, a device can detect if someone has marijuana in their system, but since marijuana stays in a person’s system for weeks and weeks at a time, there’s no way to determine if that individual had recently consumed marijuana, or had done so safely weeks before being pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence. This grant is a waste of money, but I’m sure there are political motivations behind it, which is why I wouldn’t be surprised to see even more money thrown at the idea if/when it fails to succeed.

Cannabis Vs The Ebola Virus

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, October, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-vs-the-ebola-virusAn outbreak of Ebola has begun across the ocean in West Africa but the threat of the virus is very close to everyone. With a high mortality rate and a devastating effect on the human body, the virus has claimed more than 4,500 people in this latest outbreak and officials fear it will effect far more in the near future if a vaccine isn’t produced that will control or kill the virus. With no cure as of yet, people are worried that the virus will become a global pandemic and people are beginning to look to cannabis as a potential assist to stopping Ebola in it’s tracks.
 
 
Cannabis boosts the immune system and also contains anti-inflammatory properties. According to Brad Morehouse, founder of NewCure.org, cannabis may be used to control the virus and decrease the number of deaths, as well as improve clinical use. Morehouse went on to state the fact that research regarding cannabis’ ability to fight Lyme rises is “overwhelming”. There is also information about cannabis fighting HIV, as the boost of the cannabinoids in the system greatly improves the human body’s ability to ward of disease. But since the plant remains illegal in many parts of the world, research is halted simply because of negative stigma.
 
 
Around the planet, researchers have indicated that cannabis has significant medical potential. The Ebola virus kills by cytokine storm, meaning that the virus attacks the human body’s immune system, proving to be extremely deadly. Those that study cannabis believe that the anti-inflammatory properties combined with the fact that cannabis also contains antiretrovirals means that the plant may be able to reduce the severity of cytokine storm that Ebola causes.
 
 
With such a high fatality rate, a virus like Ebola could have a severe impact on the planet as a whole. The virus isn’t limited to West Africa. Even politicians are backing the study of cannabis as a cure, such as former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson, who is now the CEO and president of Cannabis Sativa, one of the world’s largest cannabis companies. Dr. David Allen also agreed with Johnson, in the cannabis may be the one thing that is able to put a stop to Ebola once and for all, as well as a multitude of other diseases that plague the human race. With proper research, the cure for Ebola could be found in a matter of weeks.

The "Ocean Grown" OG Kush comes from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles and is considered to be the strain that put Southern California buds on par with the flowers coming from up North. Developed over three generations and years of stabilizing as well as developing the perfect fertilizer / food for this particular strain, resulted in a phenomenal kush, said to be the strongest indica today. OG Kush, when properly grown, has the highest THC content of all kushes.

Diamonds Or Bud?

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, October, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder
diamonds-or-bud
We all love cannabis. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this and I wouldn’t be writing it. The plant helps a lot of us get through our daily grind, whether helping us eat, ease pain, laugh, sleep, or just deal with people in general. But most of us probably wouldn’t steal a $160,000 diamond from a UPS plane and trade it for $20 worth of bud… But Walter Earl Morrison, age 20, did just that and got caught, go figure.
 
 
Morrison was working to UPS while unloading planes in the cargo area of Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, Arizona, when he stuffed one of the packages under his shirt. He believed that the package contained cash but instead, he discovered that the box held an extremely valuable hunk of diamond. Instead of buying a ton of cannabis, Morrison allegedly traded the single stoned (again, valued around $160,000) for $20 worth of cannabis. The quality of the cannabis purchased wasn’t stated in the report but we can assume that it was probably substandard and not nearly worth what the diamond was.
 
 
According to the owner of the House of Diamonds, Brent Taubman, any single stone worth more than $100,000 is a very sought after piece. Imagine even holding a single piece of geographical fragment that was worth such a staggering sum. Most stoners would be too afraid to even touch such an object but Morrison didn’t think so. The diamond was recovered from the person Morrison traded it to and returned to the original recipient. UPS fired Morrison and he is being charged with felony theft. 
 
 
If faced with such a choice, which option would you choose? The diamond worth enough to buy three brand new Mercedes plus a trip to Las Vegas for a weekend or maybe a gram of marijuana? Whatever you would choose theoretically, please be sure to avoid stealing $160,000 diamonds and trading them for things that are valued at far less.
