Obama Admits Marijuana Is Less Dangerous Than Alcohol

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 20th 2014 by THCFinder
obama-mj-and-alcoholAn interview was released by the New Yorker today in which United States President Barack Obama had some interesting things to say. It was a lengthy interview covering many areas of public policy, with a specific Q & A session about marijuana. When asked asked about marijuana, Barack Obama stated the following:
 ”As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”
There are two ways a marijuana reformer can look at these sentences. One way to look at it is ‘Obama just said that marijuana isn’t more dangerous than alcohol.’ This is a significant statement for the President of the United States to make about marijuana. The other way to look at it is ‘Obama is such a hypocrite. Why the F doesn’t he just legalize it like alcohol then!?’ Both ways to look at Obama’s statements are definitely valid. Obama went on to say:
“Less dangerous, he said, “in terms of its impact on the individual consumer. It’s not something I encourage, and I’ve told my daughters I think it’s a bad idea, a waste of time, not very healthy.” What clearly does trouble him is the radically disproportionate arrests and incarcerations for marijuana among minorities. “Middle-class kids don’t get locked up for smoking pot, and poor kids do,” he said. “And African-American kids and Latino kids are more likely to be poor and less likely to have the resources and the support to avoid unduly harsh penalties.” But, he said, “we should not be locking up kids or individual users for long stretches of jail time when some of the folks who are writing those laws have probably done the same thing.” Accordingly, he said of the legalization of marijuana in Colorado and Washington that “it’s important for it to go forward because it’s important for society not to have a situation in which a large portion of people have at one time or another broken the law and only a select few get punished.”"
I agree with Barack Obama that marijuana legalization in Colorado and Washington is important for going forward. Everyday that marijuana is grown and sold legally, and tax revenue piles up, is a day that the world gets to see that legalizing marijuana is a great thing. Everyone wins, no one loses, no matter what Kevin Sabet says.

Purple Urkle - Indica

Purple Urkle comes from Mendo Purps pheno and is native to the notorious green triangle in northern California. It is characterized by unusually long orange hairs covering small, dense, purple nugs when properly grown and harvested. The color is a purple much like that found on quality strains of Lavender, although despite common misconception, the two are not related.


How To Conserve Weed

Weed may be a plant but that doesn't mean that it's easy to get a hold of. For a lot of people, marijuana is still something that is bought on a street corner, rather then the dispensary down the road. So for those stoners who are stuck in places where bud might be hard to come by, I've come up with five ways to conserve your weed or at least have backups stored in case you run out and need an emergency nug. Even if you can get your hands on weed easily, that doesn't mean you have the money. So these tips work for people in legal states as well!
1. The E-Nug
Most stoners do this no matter what. They have a secret stash stored somewhere so that when they run out of bud, they have something to smoke on. Usually this nug is stored in a small jar, container, or grinder and stashed away until needed. Definitely a recommended step because you'll be able to get high while you wait for the lagging weed man!
2. Master The Corner
Cornering a bowl should be considered an art. If you know how to conserve weed, cornering your bowls like a pro is how you make a little bit of weed last a long time. A small bong pack can be four good sized hits in a straight tube. Trust me, I've had to conserve weed like crazy before in those broke college days.
3. Save All The Keif
Don't smoke all of your keif at once. It's usually a good idea to save a bit every time you empty out that chamber in your grinder so that once you actually do run out, you have some awesome keif to get you baked until you can get some more bud/dabs/whatever you're smoking.
4. Stretch It Out
Don't smoke unless absolutely necessary. Bad day, headaches, etc are definitely good reasons but if you're low on weed and just wanna smoke to be high, you should probably refrain. Save the bud for when you really need it!
5. Buy A Little Extra
Sometimes, it's a good idea just to throw on a few more grams. While it may cost a bit extra, having the ability to smoke when you want is just that nice. It's worth it t spend that extra bit so if you're ever debating, it's usually better to buy more than less if you can afford it!

Smoking Weed Doesn't Make You A Bad Person

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, January, 17th 2014 by THCFinder
It's extremely unfair that stoner stereotypes are still part of the smokers every day experience. Whether you live in a place where marijuana is legal or not, stoners always seem to face some kind of difficulty when making their way through life. Those who choose to broadcast their smoking habits by wearing cannabis clothing or even just simply speaking up about their plant beliefs are more often than not met with some sort of snide remark or rude comment. Which isn't fair, considering some of the most successful people around these days seem to be smoking the reefer. There are two kinds of people that are against marijuana when it comes down to the bottom line.
The first group of people who strongly speak out against cannabis is the religious type. A lot of people who strongly believe in some sort of religion like to preach about how marijuana is bad for you and that it's the "devil's plant". People definitely still use that term, I would imagine mostly those who come from the deepest parts of the south. Now there's nothing wrong with believing in religion but if you do believe in some kind of creator, a supreme being that brought life in to the world, then you have to accept the idea that cannabis was put here for a reason. It seems unlikely that the plant's main purpose would be to be hated by the human race, especially since it occurs naturally and without human interaction. Some stoners even argue that marijuana is mentioned in the Bible and there are numerous other religions that use the herb in rituals and refer to it as an extremely powerful thing.
As for the second group, it's purely those who refuse to accept change. They are the ones who have believed that cannabis is wrong for such a long period of time that there is just no convincing them otherwise. They will argue with you until they're blue in the face but will never actually produce any legitimate information. So most of the time, they repeat the same few phrases; "it's a gateway drug", "it's bad because it's illegal", or "it's a severely mind altering substance". When arguing with one of these people, that's pretty much all you're going to hear from them. They don't have solid evidence and they refuse to listen to yours. The best way to deal with this kind of person is to just say what you need to say and let them talk until they run out of hot air.
Bottom line; marijuana use doesn't make you a terrible person. Stereotyping someone for smoking marijuana DOES make you a bad person. Just because someone likes to light a plant on fire and inhale it means that they're a terrible person, probably a criminal or a gang member? No. The stereotypes associated with cannabis need to fade out and disappear because we all know that they're not true. It's key to remember that all stoners should act the way they want the cannabis industry to be viewed.
