Marijuana May Reduce Brain Damage From Alcohol

The battle between cannabis and alcohol is a harsh one. Most people acknowledge the fact that alcohol is probably the more dangerous of the two, with it's high risk of a fatal car crash if driving while drunk or the possibility of an overdose. Cannabis still to this day has zero deaths attributed to it. Alcohol also has the potential to seriously damage the human brain, causing problems with memory, cognitive functions, and speech. But due to a study released by the University of Kentucky and the University of Maryland, it is now apparent that cannabis may reduce the brain damaging effects of booze.
 
CBD is the substance that assists with this repairing of the brain. The study showed that the effect of the CBD on the alcoholic patients showed that CBD could definitely be considered a cure for this affliction after more research and trials. CBD is a strong antioxidants, along with the other substance that's found most commonly in cannabis, THC. These two antioxidants work together to repair the brain's neuro degeneration that's due to over ingestion of alcohol. The study went on to state that "it has been suggested that the neuro protective effects of CBD observed during binge alcohol induced neuro degeneration are due to it's high antioxidant qualities".
 
The study consisted of rat models being given both a skin patch and an injection of CBD. In the findings, it showed that both methods produced serious results, with the CBD rats showing "similar magnitudes of neuro protection", approximately 50% more. So either method of CBD ingestion has been shown to reduce the amount of alcohol brain damage and more studies will be conducted in order to progress to human trials. This is a huge breakthrough in the cannabis community, seeing as how there are no treatments available today that can reduce the effects of alcohol on the brain. CBD is a bright future for those who have managed to binge drink themselves to a point where they need help to fix the damage.

New Development In Attempt To Destroy Medical Cannabis Law In Washington

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, March, 4th 2014 by THCFinder
wa-mmj-in-jepordyHouse Bill 2149, the proposal to gut Washington State’s medical cannabis law, failed to receive a public hearing in the Senate Ways and Means Committee yesterday, which was the deadline for the bill to receive one. This means that the proposal, in its current form, won’t be advancing. However, according to staff of the committee, the proposal will be implemented into an upcoming budget bill, which will be voted on in the coming days (sometime before the session ends on March 13th).
 
It’s now more important than ever that those in Washington State contact their lawmakers and urge them to oppose the regressive changes that this move would bring. Some of these changes include:
 
Creating a mandatory patient registry
Shutting down all collective gardens
Drastically reducing patients’ possession and cultivation limit
Putting medical cannabis under the same tax structure as recreational cannabis (25% at three different levels).

The Employment Problem

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, March, 4th 2014 by THCFinder
job-issuesAs cannabis acceptance spreads, more issues are beginning to present themselves. One that has been apparent for a while but is just now being fully acknowledged is the employers and their pain in the ass drug testing. Stoners everywhere know the difficulty of trying to pass a pre-employment drug test and there are other jobs that randomly screen employees throughout their career to make sure that no drugs are being ingested. But since Colorado allows legal pot, does that change anything for tourists?
 
Unfortunately, no. The laws aren't exactly moving quickly and if you fly to CO to get stoned and you have a job that tests for cannabis, it's a smart idea to refrain from smoking the reefer. Even though the laws in Colorado let you smoke, you might run in to a surprise test when you get home. Since marijuana can stay in a person's system for as long as three months, people can suffer the consequences long after they smoked and even though they are able to do their job.
 
Since cannabis is now legal in Washington, Colorado, and Portland, Maine, pot tourists are traveling from all over the states to sample a bit of the legal cannabis trade. There should be no reason that someone's weekend trip should cost them their job when they return home, even weeks after they've come back. If employers want to keep their businesses afloat, it would be a good idea for them to completely remove THC from the list of drugs that would prevent a person from getting or keeping their job.
 
Employers will eventually adapt their policies to accept marijuana use. If approval of the plant continues to spread and legalization, there will be a lot of people that will be smoking and I believe that there will be no choice but to allow employees to consume THC. As of right now, even medical patients from California can be fired for failing a drug test so hopefully, these policies are revised soon. It's not fair for a tourist to lose their jobs just because they wanted to have a good time. Do jobs fire people for alcohol consumption on the weekends? No.
