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
az-wont-give-mj-researcher-her-job-backDr. 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.

How To Grow The OG Kush Marijuana Strain Indoors

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, July, 31st 2014 by THCFinder

OG Kush General

It’s common to hear the term “Kush” in a conversation about weed. In its base form, Kush is a pure indica strain, but OG Kush is much more of a hybrid than pure-breed. OG Kush marijuana seeds are capable of producing high-quality gardens with high-quality bud. They also have plenty of uses in the medicinal world.

OG Kush Smoking Effects

When we think of Kush, it’s common to think of a harsh smoke that really deadens the senses. This is because Kush is a pure indica strain. OG Kush, on the other hand, produces the exact opposite effect. It is able to provide you with an immediate boost of energy that makes it perfect for social engagements. It’s certainly not ideal if you are trying to get to sleep. The reason for all this is because of the increased incidence of THC on the plant. Although it is an indica-dominant hybrid, the amount of THC negates a lot of the heavy effects you’d associate with traditional Kush varieties. The distinct citrusy, sour tastes and aromas work delightfully in concert with your improved mood and energy level. Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about growing marijuana.

OG Kush Plant Features

Perhaps the single most important factor of the OG Kush plant is its ability to produce large amounts of dense buds. These buds are considerably easy to harvest, which is good for novice growers who don’t know much about harvesting. The plants themselves attain average heights of around 40 to 60 inches, although they are generally on the lower end of that spectrum.

OG Kush marijuana seeds will produce plants that take about 9 weeks to flower. The plants will exude a distinct piney aroma that will have your grow room smelling like a forest. The yields are relatively low at around 16 ounces per 10 square feet, but the 21% THC content more than makes up for it. With the OG Kush strain, you can also get seeds that are feminized and/or autoflowering to make the growing process easier for you.

OG Kush Medicinal Uses

As noted previously, the OG Kush strain has a lot of indications for medicinal use. It can help with everything from depression to appetite loss. Patients on chemotherapy have used OG Kush to lessen nausea associated with the procedures. Anorexia can also be mitigated with the use of OG Kush. Glaucoma patients have seen relief with the use of OG Kush. The strain can also be used as a general pain reliever.
