58 percent support marijuana legalization, poll says
Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, October, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
The times, they are a-changin.
With marijuana now legal in two states (and perhaps more to follow), a clear majority of Americans - 58 percent - say marijuana should be legalized, according to new poll from Gallup.
The results mark the first time since Gallup began polling on the issue in 1969 that a majority have voiced support for marijuana legalization.
In 1969, only 12 percent supported legalization. By 2000 that number had jumped to 31 percent. And while support has generally increased steadily over time, it seems to have jumped dramatically since 2012, when only 48 percent of respondents supported legalization.
In this latest poll, 67 percent of young adults between 18 and 29 years of age support legalization - the highest of any age group - and majorities of every age group except those over 65 also support legalization.
But ask grandma, and she might surprise you - even 45 percent of seniors think marijuana should be legal.

Why Kief Pucks Are Worth The Wait
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, October, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
It's that golden powder that falls to the bottom of your grinder after you shred a dank nugget. The stuff that every stoner covets and probably has a jar of somewhere in their collection of pot products. It's kief and it's awesome. It's the crystals off of the cannabis buds and it gets you seriously baked! Whether you're putting it in food or smoking it or turning it in to hash, kief is an all time favorite.
Recently, there has been a small explosion of popularity with kief pucks. These are large amounts of kief compressed in to little hockey pucks. Made by putting pressure on the cannabis crystals by adding the golden powder to a pollen press, getting stoned off of these is a great way to get high and stay that way all day. It's best to keep them under pressure for as long as two days. The longer the puck stays in the pollen press, the better it will stick together when it is removed.
It seems that the most common and efficient way to smoke these pucks is to either break them up and place them on top of packed bowls or just place the whole thing on top of the bowl. There are quite a few different ways that are recommended however. These methods include hot knifing, adding the puck in to a joint, vaporizing, and just smoking the puck how it is by placing it in a piece. Putting the pucks on top of green seems to be the best way, however. Be careful when smoking kief, as it is extremely strong.
This product of cannabis is excellent for those in a lot of pain, as the effects of kief are incredibly stronger than just bud. Collecting kief for some people can be a long process and kind of a pain, especially if you constantly run of out weed and smoke all of your bud. Smoking kief is sure to help keep you stoned until you can get your hands on some weed. Even if you're not out of flowers, a kief puck will put you to sleep or keep you on cloud nine for hours. It may take a while to get a lot of kief together to make a puck big enough to enjoy, it's a process that's worth the wait.
FDA Approves Trials For Marijuana-Based Epilepsy Medicine
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, October, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
The U.S. Federal Drug Administration has given unprecedented approval for two separate trials of Epidiolex, a liquid medicine made entirely of cannabis; the substance contains 98% cannabidiol, a nonpsychoactive compound found in cannabis – the remaining 2% consist of various trace amounts of other cannabinoids.
The studies will be led by Orrin Devinsky, MD at New York University’s School of Medicine, and Roberta Cilio, MD, PhD, at the University of California.
Each study will involve 25 participants, all children.
Epidiolex is manufactured by GW Pharmaceuticals, the company behind Sativex, a cannabis-derived medicinal spray which has been approved for treating multiple sclerosis in multiple countries, including Canada.
According to Geoffrey Guy, MD, chairman of GW Pharmaceuticals, cannabidiol is more than just an anti-seizure agent. “It’s anti-inflammatory, neuro-modulatory, and has been shown in animals to counter neonatal hypoxic ischemia [oxygen starvation during delivery] —an important problem you see after seizures in these children.”
