Weed Puns Take Over The News
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, August, 4th 2014 by THCFinder
With cannabis taking over the US (and pretty much the rest of the world), the headlines about the plant are everywhere! Every news station has at least one marijuana related story a day and some of the headlines were definitely made to make stoners laugh... Or perhaps they actually were made by stoners. Either way, enjoy this list of awesome cannabis related news headlines from the last couple of months.
- Case Of The Munchies
Seattle Cops Giving Stoners Bags Of Chips
At Hempfest in Seattle last year, stoners were given bags of Doritos by police officers that were present at the event. This is a perfect example of how cops should be acting, as compared to how they're acting.
- State Blazes New Trail, Legalizes Pot
Vote Puts Washington to the left of Netherlands on marijuana law, sets up potential fight with the Feds
This was one of the headlines that was in a Washington paper when the state passed the legal marijuana initiative that would allow those over 21 years of age to purchase and smoke marijuana legally in the state, without a doctors recommendation or any sort of card other than state issued ID.
- Zoinks! Marijuana Substitute More Potent Than Pot... And Legal!
Finally, people began to catch on to the awful effects of the legal weed known as "spice". This terrible plague is a legal "herb" that may or may not be lawn trimmings sprayed with chemical compounds that resemble (but are not the same) as marijuana. The effects of the product are unknown in the long run but can cause severe panic attacks, violent episodes, and even suicide in some cases. But this paper managed to play on words a bit and liven up such a dreary story with a little Scooby reference.
- An officer of the law managed to make and eat pot brownies and when he realized what they were, he was a little freaked out. The officer called 911 and this was what he said to the operator, "I don't know, we made brownies. And I think we're dead. Time is going by really really really slow."
- Weed Catches Fire; Witnesses Say A Dragon Did It
When a group of Columbian police managed to intercept some bales of bud, they turned their backs and when they weren't looking, the bales lit up and started on fire. Witnesses didn't feel like helping much though... They claimed that a blue dragon has swooped down, spit fire on the weed, lit it up, and took off. The dragon was never found.
- Police Jail Man After 80 Call To 911 For Kool-Aid, Hamburgers, and Weed
A good life lesson? Don't call the cops and ask for munchies. Better yet, don't call them multiple times, asking for munchies. This guy learned this lesson the hard way when he was arrested for harassing the cops, asking for the cure to his hunger. Don't be that guy. Just call Dominos.
The White House Tries, Fails to Explain Why Marijuana Should Remain Illegal
Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 1st 2014 by THCFinder
No sooner had the Times published its opening editorials advocating legalization of marijuana than the White House fired back with an unconvincing response on its website. It argued that marijuana should remain illegal because of public health problems “associated” (always a slippery word) with increased marijuana use.
Careful readers will immediately see the White House statement for what it is: A pro forma response to a perceived public relations crisis, not a full-fledged review of all the scientific evidence, pro and con. The White House is actually required by law to oppose all efforts to legalize a banned drug.
Besides, it is hypocritical for the White House, whose chefs brew beer for the president, to oppose legalizing marijuana, which poses far less risk to consumers and society than does alcohol. Two recipes for the White House brew are posted on its website under the headline “Ale to the Chief.”
The White House lumped its public health argument under four main headings. Before addressing them individually, we should note that there was an enormous upsurge in marijuana use in the 1970s. So far as we know, no one has claimed that it produced calamitous health or societal harm in subsequent decades. The main metric that soared was arrests for possession of marijuana.
Here are our responses to the four main public health contentions made by the White House.
The first — that marijuana use affects the developing brain — is a concern for all parents of teenagers. That’s why we recommended regulations to keep marijuana out of the hands of young people. The White House cites a study by Australian researchers, published in 2012 in the journal Brain, which found that heavy cannabis use starting while young impairs connections between nerve fibers in the adult brain. It also cites a study which purports to show that heavy use by teenagers can lead to a big decline in intelligence in adult years. That study has been criticized as flawed by a Norwegian researcher who believes that socio-economic factors explain most of the apparent loss of IQ and that the true effect of marijuana could be zero. And remember: no responsible advocate of legalization is urging that marijuana be made available to teenagers.

University Of Arizona Won't Give Marijuana Researcher Her Job Back
Category: Contests | Posted on Thu, July, 31st 2014 by THCFinder
Dr. Sue Sisley was supposed to lead a research project at the University of Arizona that explored how medical marijuana affects PTSD. Unfortunately for Dr. Sisley, and those who would have benefitted from her research, the University of Arizona terminated her employment prior to the start of the research project. Dr. Sisley appealed her termination, and this week the University of Arizona denied her appeal.
The private funders of the research project have stated that if she didn’t get her job back, that they would pull funding for the project and send their money to a different university. There was a lot of backlash after Dr. Sisley’s termination, and I expect there to be even more now that her appeal was denied. Military veterans are leading the outcry. Per NBC News:
Some of Sisley’s supporters argue her dismissal embodies barriers that have long blocked marijuana from the medical mainstream. Those obstacles include, her backers say, a federal “monopoly” that chooses which scientists can investigate cannabis — and controls the price for exam-grade pot.
Sisley’s loudest fans are veterans who see hope in her planned study. They include Ricardo Pereyda, an Arizona alumnus diagnosed with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder after serving in Iraq. His online petition, dubbing Sisley’s firing “immoral and unpatriotic,” has amassed nearly 100,000 signatures.
One of my pet peeves when it comes to medical marijuana opponents is when they say that they don’t support medical marijuana because there needs to be more research. Then these same opponents do everything they can to thwart any research. This happens way too often. If opponents truly wanted more research, they would allow it to happen and live with the results. But deep down they know that truth and science is not on their side, which is why they do everything they can to prevent research.
