Girl Scout Profits From Dispensary Spot
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, February, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
We all know that Girl Scout cookies are a hugely craved munchies snack among stoners. Thin Mints? Hell yeah, sign us up! A little girl in Phoenix discovered how much pot smokers love the Girl Scout cookies when she set up shop outside a dispensary. The 8-year-old, Lexi Menees, was given the idea by her mother, Heidi Carney, who was following the idea of a teenager who sold a ton of cookies at a dispensary in San Francisco a few days prior.
When the little girl showed up at TruMed Dispensary with her parents, she had somewhere between 100-150 boxes of cookies. In the few hours that they were out there, the little girl got rid of more than 50 boxes of cookies. Justin Menees, Lexi's father, said that this amount was far more then they would've sold outside of a grocery store, a valid point seeing as how you can just buy cookies inside the grocery store. A Girl Scout selling cookies right outside a dispensary gives patients a one stop shop for their meds and a snack.
While some people see an issue with this, the president of TruMed Dispensary and oncology nurse Lauren Gooding, says that she hopes that the presence of the Girl Scouts will help to eliminate the negative stigma attached to marijuana dispensaries. There was also a security guard on site to make sure that no one consumes or broadcasts a marijuana purchase, ensuring that Lexi was never exposed to the plant and it was pretty much just like selling at Walgreens or CVS.
The feelings of the Girl Scouts vary state to state. While some states, like Arizona, have had their spokesperson claim that as long as the child is safe, the parents have the choice of where to set up shop, others like Colorado have strictly prohibited members from selling at marijuana stores. The organization said that while the "recognize these are legitimate businesses, but we don't feel they are an appropriate place for girls to be selling cookies in Colorado".
National Epilepsy Foundation Calls For Increased Access To Medical Marijuana

The National Epilepsy Foundation issued a release calling for federal and state-level policy changes to increase access to medical marijuana. Citing the injustice that patients in some states are being denied treatment that is available to patients in other states, the foundation called for changes to state and federal laws to increase access to medical marijuana. In New York, the legislature is considering the Compassionate Care Act, which would alleviate the suffering of seriously ill New Yorkers by allowing them access to a small amount of medical marijuana under the supervision of a healthcare provider. The bill has passed the Assembly four times but is stalled in the Senate, where Senate Co-presidents Skelos and Klein have thus far refused to allow the bill to the floor for a vote.
The announcement by the Epilepsy Foundation adds to the growing momentum in New York for passage of the Compassionate Care Act. This week, two cancer support groups – 1 in 9: The Long Island Breast Cancer Action Coalition and the Breast Cancer Network of Western New York – endorsed the Compassionate Care Act, joining national organizations and more than 60 organizations across New York that support the bill, including the New York State Nurses Association, the New York State Psychological Association, the Pharmacists Society of the State of New York, the New York State Breast Cancer Network, the Latino AIDS Commission, the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester, the, Multiple Sclerosis Resources of Central NY, Capital Region Action Against Breast Cancer, Physicians for Compassionate Care, and many more.
Earlier this week, a Quinnipiac poll found that 88% of New York voters support medical marijuana, including super-majorities of Democrats and Republicans. And two Republican Senators, Maziarz and Grisanti, this week declared their support for the Compassionate Care Act and called for a vote in the Senate.
Geri Barish, President of 1 in 9: The Long Island Breast Cancer Action Coalitionsaid: “Like dozens of other organizations across the state, we are supporting the Compassionate Care Act because it will help to alleviate the pain and suffering of, not only the cancer patients we see on a daily basis, but other seriously ill New Yorkers. It will provide proper access to medication to give some relief to those we love, and those who suffer from pain have waited too long. We ask the Senate to vote yes on this bill.”
Even as momentum is building, patients with serious and debilitating conditions continue to suffer. Some patients and their families are even forced to leave New York and relocate to one of the twenty states where medical marijuana is legal. “I am extremely moved and thankful that organizations like the Epilepsy Foundation are supporting the implementation of comprehensive medical marijuana laws that can help our children,” said Kate Hintz of North Salem whose daughter Morgan has a severe seizure disorder. “I strongly agree with the Epilepsy Foundation that having access to relief for seizures should not be determined by one’s zip code. I am currently left with no other option than to give my child prescription medications that I know are not effective and that grossly impair her ability to function. There is overwhelming evidence that certain preparations of medical marijuana are not only effective anti-convulsants, but have far less negative side effects. Unfortunately, we are not able to try medical marijuana, even with our doctor’s support, because it is not yet legal to do so in New York. I refuse to uproot my family and move thousands of miles away when I know that this treatment is overwhelmingly supported by the majority of New Yorkers. It is imperative that the NY Senate follow the example and recommendations of the Epilepsy Foundation by creating safe access to medical marijuana for patients with severe epilepsy, like my daughter Morgan.”

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, February, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
This extremely powerful and loved strain is a hybrid cross between the incredibly beloved Girl Scout Cookie strain and the Fire OG strain. The strain is a fast flowering plant, making it extremely popular among growers. It flower in about 9-10 weeks and grows as a dense plant. The strain is incredibly strong, not for the weak lunged smoker, and is highly recommended for patients that are suffering with pain or insomnia. Needless to say, Animal Cookies is a heavy indica strain that you're sure to love.
The aroma of the flowers is sweet, with a tart sour bite. It smells earthy and strong, a strain that you don't want to be carrying if you're not going to be keeping it in a sealed container. The buds are a gorgeous hue of green, covered in frost, tipped in a dark purple that resembles the ripest of grapes. Trust me, you'll be in love with this strain just from smell along but once you smoke the smooth, gorgeous flowers, you'll be keeping Animal Cookies in your bong for a long time.
For patients looking for a good medicine, Animal Cookies assists patients dealing with ADD and ADHD, as well as severe anxiety, asthma, gastrointestinal disorder, and the dreaded cancer. With so many positive benefits of the strain, it's a wonder that more people aren't talking about it. In addition the the illnesses listed above, this bud will also make the user feel euphoric and happy. This characteristic is especially important for people dealing with anxiety and depression. Many patients (as well as recreational smokers) should definitely be smoking on these buds.
