Legalize Or To Not Legalize

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, October, 8th 2014 by THCFinder
legalize-weedWhen one begins to ponder the thought of cannabis legalization, it seems like a really good idea. Right? No more going to jail for possessing a plant, people will be able to make hemp products, and sick people will feel better with the help of a natural medicine. The economy will benefit, new jobs would be created, and the states would make bank from the tax revenue. But as more states pass initiatives in order to legalize, it seems like there are more laws put in place to prevent us from enjoying the cannabis plant. So is legalization something that we can expect to see in our lifetime?
 
It is highly likely that we will see the legalization of cannabis in the near future, in the majority if not all of the states. Legalization meaning that the plant will, by law, be allowed. But if the laws say we can have it and city ordinances say that we can't, is that really legalization? Many stoners fret over the fact that some states are putting bans on edibles, while others are banning the cannabis concentrates. The legal state of Washington is trying to make it illegal to have cannabis in the car, trying to mimics the open-container laws regarding alcohol, even though the two substances don't even exist in the same form. But with the way that things are going, the legalization of the plant does, in fact, seem likely. Will we benefit from it? That's kind of hard to say at the moment, seeing as how these bans are just now beginning to pass and make an impact.
 
Another worry of the modern day stoners; sub standard strains. With the allowance of marijuana, the mom-and-pop operations are flourishing. However, we all know what happened the last time mom-and-pop stores were doing well. This multi-billion dollar company named Wal-Mart showed up and put them all out of business. Imagine a Weed Wal-Mart, where eventually, it would be the only place that would carry cannabis and related products, at cheap prices but with a small percentage of THC, as compared to the high content of the buds that are grown today. The weed would not be as lovely and the smaller scale stores would surely go out of business, taken over by a corporation that will ruin the locality of the cannabis community.
 
Substandard bud would mean a hit for both medical and recreational users. Medical users wouldn't be able to get the high doses of THC that they might need, say for cancer. Recreational users wouldn't be able to flex on Instagram as much... Or get as stoned as they usually do. Of course, we may never even see that happen if the lawmakers keep giving us a little and taking back a lot. It's hard to tell where cannabis legalization will go from here. But just keep things like this in mind while we fight for at least some generalized acceptance of the cannabis plant.

Australia On It's Way To Legal Bud

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, October, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
australia-on-its-way-to-legalizing-weedUraguay legalized cannabis, at rock bottom prices, to help control the black market and illegal drug trade. Although their program isn't solid, it's working and people seem to be following suit. While the down under continent won't be fully legalizing the use of the plant, Australian support for legal medical cannabis is growing and there is a bill going before the federal Parliament next month that will push legal medical cannabis in to effect in the country.
 
The bill will be introduced this month by the chairman of the Parliamentary Group for Drug Policy and Law Reform, Richard Di Natale. Prime Minister Tony Abbott also endorsed medical marijuana publicly last month, according to SMH. "I have no problem with the medical use of cannabis, just as I have no problem with the medical use of opiates," Abbott said in a letter written to Alan Jones, a radio host. "If a drug is needed for a valid medicinal purpose and is being administered safely, there should be no question of its legality."
 
After witnessing the suffering of a 24 year old cancer patient, the NSW Government agreed to perform clinical trials for medical marijuana use. The young patient uses cannabis to cope with the disease and Premier Mike Baird was influenced by the toughness and resilience of someone so sick and still so supportive of what is believed to be a cure for cancer. These clinical trials must be presented to the Therapeutic Goods Administration in order for medical marijuana to be approved in Australia.
 
If the bill gets approval, the federal government would oversee the production as well as the distribution of cannabis. Patients with chronic pain and illnesses would be able to access this lifesaving medicine. The federal government already oversees such production of opiates for patients. Di Natale's bill encompasses the regulation and and processing of cannabis, as well as coordinating who is allowed to grow as well as maintaining the quality of the weed.

Marijuana Lowers Mortality Rate Among Patients With Traumatic Brain Injuries

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, October, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
mj-helps-traumatic-brain-injuriesI know people that have had traumatic brain injuries from sports, car crashes, and other accidents. My cousin recently had to have brain surgery as a result of a traumatic brain injury that he experienced while playing football. It was a very scary time, but I’m happy to say, he has made a full recovery. A new study was released which found that marijuana use lowers the mortality rate among patients with traumatic brain injuries. Per Science World Report:
 
The study, led by researchers at Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute, surveyed emergency patients for levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), an active ingredient present in marijuana. They found that those tested positive for THC had a lower mortality compared to people who tested negative for the illicit substance.
 
According to the researchers THC plays a key role in protecting the brain in case of a traumatic brain injury.
 
The researchers looked at 446 patients with a traumatic brain injury. Urine samples were collected to test the presence of THC in their body. It was observed that 82 of the total patients had THC in their system and out of these 2.4 percent patients had died compared to 11.5 percent deaths of patients who had tested negative for the illicit substance.
 
“Previous studies conducted by other researchers had found certain compounds in marijuana helped protect the brain in animals after a trauma,” said David Plurad, MD, an LA BioMed researcher and the study’s lead author. “This study was one of the first in a clinical setting to specifically associate THC use as an independent predictor of survival after traumatic brain injury.”
 
Do you know a patient with a traumatic brain injury? Have you recommended marijuana to them? It’s a sensitive subject, but it might save their life. If you suffer from a traumatic brain injury, I recommend you give marijuana a try, and if you already have, please post something about it in the comments section so that others can hear your story.
