Life Hack: Smoke Weed to Beat the Summer Heat… Really

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, August, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

Unlike other substances, smoking weed actually does make you cool. Literally. Don’t let yourself roast in your AC-deficient apartment, just get baked and you’ll find it helps you stay cool when you most need to. That’s right, getting high lowers your body temperature.

Did you know hot drinks cool you down and cold drinks heat you up? Some remedies for the heat don’t seem to make sense, but others, like cannabis, are downright unexpected. You read that right, hot drinks cool you down. The heat from a hot cup of tea or coffee activates special receptors on you tongue that detect heat. These TRPV1 receptors communicate with the rest of your body and activate a cooling response from the inside out. This cooling response lowers you body temperature more than the hot drink heats it up. In a similar way chili peppers also activate TRPV1 receptors and cause the same cooling response.

For this reason hot drinks must have become popular in tropical climates like India where people drink cup after cup of hot tea and eat some of the spiciest foods in the world. Guess what other substance is also quite popular in India: cannabis.

Scientists Tell Time Magazine Their Marijuana Research Goals

In the wake of the DEA’s refusal to move cannabis from the list of the most addictive and non-medical drugs,TIME Magazine sought opinions on the future of canna-science from experts currently conducting research with marijuana.

The casual statements about the safety of cannabis made by the experts are noteworthy.

Scientists argue that studying marijuana is safe, and researching it shouldn’t be such a difficult process. “A question that is not on the lips of researchers is whether or not the consumption of cannabis-based medicines is safe,” says Gregory Gerdeman, an Assistant Professor of Biology at Eckerd College. “In the biomedical research community, it is universally understood that cannabis is a very safe, well-tolerated medicine.”

Justice Department: People Cannot Be Held in Jail Because They Cannot Afford Bail

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

It is not unusual for a minor drug offender to be held behind bars simply because he or she does not have the financial resources to afford bail. However, last week, the Justice Department denounced this action in court, saying that it is unconstitutional to keep defendants locked up in jail because they cannot raise the money required for their release.

“Bail practices that incarcerate indigent individuals before trial solely because of their inability to pay for their release violate the Fourteenth Amendment,” the Justice Department wrote in a first-of-its-kind amicus brief filed in federal court on Friday.

The decision comes in light of a case involving a 54-year-old Georgia man by the name of Maurice Walker, who was busted by the Calhoun Police Department in 2015 for being a “pedestrian under the influence.” The filing indicates that Walker, who has a “serious mental health disability and limited income with no assets,” was told that he would have to remain in jail until his court date unless he could pay the fixed bail amount of $160—the amount set for the offense of being a pedestrian under the influence.
