Official Bob Marley Marijuana Blend On the Way

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 19th 2014 by THCFinder
official-bob-marley-blend-on-the-wayThe world's most famous reggae singer is on the verge of becoming the Marlboro Man of Marijuana: The Bob Marley estate has licensed the Legend singer's name and likeness to create a special blend of herb dubbed Marley Natural.
 
Marley's widow Rita Marley and children Cedella and Rohan have teamed up with Privateer Holdings, a private equity group specializing in the legal marijuana market, to exclusively mass-produce those "heirloom Jamaican cannabis strains" that Marley himself smoked to make the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer the face of the herb revolution. Privateer also owns Tilray, a 60,000-square-foot property on Vancouver Island, British Columbia that ranks as the world's largest marijuana grow farm.
 
Although the blend won't hit the States where pot is legal – which now includes Alaska and Oregon – until late-2015, Marley is now positioned to become the face of a movement to legalize weed not just in America but worldwide. "Bob Marley started to push for legalization more than 50 years ago. We're going to help him finish it," Privateer Holdings CEO Brendan Kennedy told NBC News.
 
"It just seems natural that Daddy should be part of this conversation," Cedella Marley, 47, the reggae legend's first-born daughter, told NBC News in a taped statement. "As Daddy would say, 'make way for the positive day.'" Son Rohan Marley added, "Herb is for the healing of the nation; herb is for the meditation; herb is for the higher vibrations."
 
Rita Marley, who was once a member of Marley's backup singing group the I Threes, said in a statement, "You can depend on Bob, too. He’s 100 percent behind what is happening. He's happy because this is what we dreamed of," referring to marijuana legalization. "It was unruly for them to call it weed or drugs. We saw it as a spiritual thing, given to us by God." The Marley family also shared a commercial for the Marley Natural, as well as the blend's logo, a dread lion positioned between two pot leaves.
 
Marley finished ninth on Forbes' most recent list of the top-earning dead celebrities, with annual earnings of around $20 million for his estate (not including all the bootlegged clothing and paraphernalia featuring the singer's likeness). With the release of Marley Natural Fine Cannabis, and with the legal weed industry in America already at $50 billion and climbing with every state that decriminalizes marijuana, Marley's estate can expect to rocket up the posthumous earnings list in the near future.

Does TV Effect Cannabis Support

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, November, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
does-tv-effect-cannabis-supportThe media is an extremely powerful tool that I really can’t stress enough. Every day, we are bombarded with advertisements. We sit and watch television and go to the movies with our friends. Movies, shows, commercials, photos. We see it all, every day. Over the last few years, if you’ve been paying attention, more and more TV shows and movies have begun to transform the pot smokers from the stupid, silly stoners to the people who are “cool”, “hip”, or just downright smart. From cartoons like Futurama to horror flicks like the Cabin in the Woods, marijuana is slowly taking over the media industry one character at a time.
 
 
Take for example, the TV show Weeds. Nancy Botwin was a widow that started selling weed in order to help keep her family afloat after her husband died. Her plight seemed to really grab an audience and the show managed to get through numerous seasons before kind of faltering and becoming more about gun running, cocaine smuggling, and Nancy’s inability to control her crazy offspring. Not to mention a bummer of a last episode that was so corny, it made cotton candy look sour. But the point is, Weeds was a long running, highly rated show that people loved… And it’s center piece was cannabis.
 
 
Cartoons especially seem to focus on the use of cannabis, probably because the writers involved acknowledge the fact that most of their viewers are stoned. Cartoons like Rick and Morty, Futurama, Family Guy, American Dad, the Simpsons, and many more feature weed in at least one episode, with some cartoons making constant references to it throughout seasons. It remains a question, however, if this explosion of positive weed related humor is due to the growing public support of the plant (since TV stations want to play what we want to see so we’ll watch it) or if those 420 friendly depictions are liberalizing attitudes about cannabis legalization.
 
 
Oddly enough, the General Social Survey (GSS) found some light to shed on this question. The GSS asks about TV consumption by consumers and marijuana legalization in it’s biennial academic surveys. Over the last decade, after accounting other variables, support for cannabis legalization has increased almost 20% points among those who watch at least 4 hours of TV a day, which turns out to be 1/3 of the US population. Meanwhile, opinions among those who don’t watch as much TV seemed to stay the same. 
 
 
With the results not being 100% definitive, it’s still somewhat difficult to say if TV is responsible for the growing support of cannabis. Some Americans could have changed their viewing habits because they don’t approve of prime time’s portrayal of weed or some depictions could have change to reflect who was watching the most TV. Of course, the most likely scenario is that TV normalizing cannabis use is helping to change the public’s opinion of the plant overall.

Will Guatemala Legalize Marijuana In 2015?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, November, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
guatemalan-mj-legalizationOne of my favorite places I’ve ever visited is Guatemala. I went there on a ten day missionary trip in 2009, and it’s a trip that will forever be in my heart. The people there were so nice and the country was so beautiful. I love fresh fruit, and I’m not that tall, and there’s fresh fruit everywhere there and everyone’s my height. But despite it’s beauty and amazing citizens, Guatemala is very poor. Guatemala is also plagued by the same problems that come with marijuana prohibition that other countries in Latin and South America face. Cartel operations are all over the place, and there’s a lot of misery as a result.
 
It’s time that Guatemala changed it’s marijuana policies to help defeat cartels, and help improve the economics of the country. It sounds like 2015 might be the year for that. Per teleSUR:
 
In an exclusive interview with teleSUR, Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina said that his government would follow the example of Uruguay by taking a decision on legalizing marijuana in early 2015.
 
Guatemala would greatly benefit from marijuana legalization. Like I said, there is a strong cartel presence in the country, and legalizing marijuana would no doubt hurt those cartels. Jobs are very much needed in Guatemala, and a booming marijuana industry would bring many jobs no doubt. Local economies in Guatemala would thrive. The climate in Guatemala is ripe for marijuana farms, which would instantly make Guatemala a leader in the global marijuana market.
