Cherry Pie - Indica

Cherry Pies parents are Grand Daddy Purple and OG Kush. With buds that are dense and full or orange hairs and a touch of purple, the scent of this strain smells of sweet and sour cherry pie. The high has been known to come on in minutes and stick around for a couple hours. Great for stress, pain relief and depression.

Marijuana In The States

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, August, 12th 2014 by THCFinder
marijuana-in-the-states
The cannabis industry stands to make people a whole lot of money, once it is allowed to be a regulated substance. With the amount of taxes to be made, plus the revenue itself from sales, the plant has the potential to pull us out of a massive amount of debt. Not only that but the release of non-violent marijuana offenders would save states millions on prison money and law enforcement, letting police and jailers spend their time attending to actual criminals, not a bunch of stoned out youths. But how badly is the government really screwing up by not allowing this plant to flourish?
 
Let's talk money... After all, the language of green is one that everyone speaks. In this case, each state would make money from legalizing cannabis. Some states stand to make far more than others because of their heavy density of cannabis usage. For example, California stands to make $105 million in tax revenue due to legalized weed. All of that money going to help schools, roads, and public programs, not to mention the massive amount of jobs that would come from a legal marijuana industry. Following not-so-closely behind California is New York, which comes in at a staggering $65 million (California, what are you DOING?!). Imagine all of that money going towards better roads and nicer schools, free lunches for kids and hundreds of jobs? Not to mention the positive effects that cannabis has on society as a whole.
 
There is someone getting arrested for cannabis use once every 38 seconds. So by the time I finish writing this blog, at least ten people will have been arrested for smoking a plant. Doesn't that just seem a little messed up? In addition, there will be $14,100,000,000 spent on preventing marijuana use per year. That includes the money that Feds need to raid dispensaries, grow houses, and homes of the people that it should be protecting. Plus the money that is spent on housing these "criminals"? Absolutely ridiculous. All of that could be spent elsewhere, on making the world a better place for the ones that will follow in our footsteps.
 
Marijuana has been here for thousands of years. It was here long before us and it will be here long after we've killed ourselves off. It is a part of this planet and is not to be treated like some man made monstrosity, like cigarettes, alcohol, and pollution. Arresting innocent people for smoking a plant is just simply a waste of time, We can only keep our fingers crossed in hopes that the government will just let marijuana go and study it for the miracle plant that it is.

Bubba Kush - Indica

A very sweet, earthy strain that is almost pure Indica. Bubba Kush provides an intense and relaxing high that starts in your head and moves down into your body. It is a cross between the two popular strains Bubble Gum and Kush, and distinct enough to earn its own name.

Alcohol Vs. Marijuana; Fair Fight?

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, August, 11th 2014 by THCFinder
alcohol-vs-marijuana
People spend a lot of time comparing cannabis to alcohol. Fair enough. The two substances do have a couple things in common. They both get a lot of hate from people, they both suffered through long years of prohibition, and they both alter the way we see the world. But putting the two up against each other in a one-on-one comparison? It may seem like a good idea but are these two substances comparable enough to actually have that be a fair turnout?
 
Alcohol has been around for a really, really long time. Fermentation and distilling and the process of making alcoholic beverages is considered a craft, something that not everyone can do. Which is true. The process of making beer and liquor is long and arduous, not for those who aren't motivated. And the substance can definitely be enjoyed in moderation, as is the case with most things that exist in our world. The alcohol industry rakes money in, creates jobs, and produces a product that is one of the top selling consumer items on the market, especially with the economy being where it is. All of these things seem great but is booze really that fantastic? With a high rate of overdosing, maybe not. Alcohol's effects are also far more potent as compared to marijuana, causing double vision, impaired judgement, and terrible coordination. And when someone experiencing these effects gets behind the wheel of a car or does something else that may cause harm to the user and others, the situation has the potential to get really bad.
 
In the US alone, there are 88,000 deaths a year that are contributed to excessive use of alcohol. This legal substance that is sold at almost every corner store is the third leading lifestyle related cause of death in the nation. Over consumption of alcohol has lead to 2.5 million years of potential life lost annually or in other words, each person who died from alcohol consumption could have lived an average of 30 years after their death, had they not consumed the alcohol. In the year 2006, there were 1.2 million emergency room visits and 2.7 physician office visits that were found out to be caused by excessive consumption of alcohol. Additionally, the economic cost of excessive alcohol consumption in 2006? An estimated $223.5 billion.
 
So after reading those numbers, alcohol looks pretty terrible. It's also legal, which makes the fact that it's so dangerous even more appalling. Compared to marijuana, alcohol looks like the monster that hides in every child's closet. Seeing as how there are no ACTUAL recorded deaths that were directly caused by cannabis (at least none that my half hour scour of Google showed me), it would appear that cannabis should clearly be legal and alcohol should be the one that's outlawed. Cannabis causes no deaths, it's virtually impossible to overdose on the substance, and it doesn't produce the same mind altering effects that alcohol does. There is no double vision, no abundance of over-sociableness, and no random urges to punch the stranger next to you in the face because he likes the Raiders instead of the Patriots.
 
But while cannabis doesn't have any deaths chalked up to it's use this far, there are scattered reports that since the legalization began, there have been a handful of deaths that were a direct effect of marijuana ingestion. Relating mostly to edibles, these stories are pretty scary and leave some people wondering if there may be some kinds of brain that don't handle THC the same as others. Perhaps certain underlying causes contribute to this incredibly violent psychoactive behavior? Or maybe just the low tolerance of these users is what causes the reaction. Or perhaps the person was ready to snap and these incidents are just coincidences. The reasoning behind the incidents is unclear but seeing as how an overdose of marijuana would involve ingesting 1,500 pounds in around 15 minutes, it's highly unlikely that these deaths were caused directly by cannabis consumption.
 
In regards to driving while under the influence of cannabis, traffic accidents in Colorado are actually down from the normal yearly average. And while that in no way means that you should be getting baked and driving, it does show that people aren't being dumb about the new laws. The citizens of Colorado are showing that with legalization comes the concept of moderation, the key to using any substance, legal or not. In addition, teen use of the plant is also on the decline, compared to outstanding amounts of teen alcohol use.
 
What is the bottom line? Cannabis and alcohol cannot really be compared. The two substances produce different effects for the person using them. For example, if two college kids are playing shot for shot (or hit for hit, in the case of cannabis) and one kid passes out and the other doesn't because one drank or smoked a little too much, is it the fault of the substance? No. User error. Substances will exist whether we create them or not. Nature creates plants and animals (referring to some toads that apparently can make you trip out if you touch them? May be a myth... Don't touch toads regardless) that get other animals intoxicated. You don't see deer and bees running their little cars off of the road, do you? Or perhaps rabbits that eat pot plants geeking out and jumping off of buildings? The odd human desire for "more" takes over, creating issues that can lead to serious injury or in some unfortunate cases, death. People do not know how to moderate their substance intake, creating the few problems outlined above. If the human race could learn how to moderate, only take what they need and nothing more, then substance abuse would no longer be an issue.

Marijuana Edible Sales Officially Start In Washington

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 11th 2014 by THCFinder
mj-edibles-in-waThe rollout of recreational marijuana sales has been a bumpy ride in Washington. It took more than half a year longer for Washington to start legal sales compared to Colorado. Many people provide the explanation for the delay as involving the fact that Colorado had a well regulated medical marijuana framework already in place, compared to Washington that has a semi-legal medical marijuana retail industry at best. As of this week, recreational marijuana edibles are now finally available in Washington, although on a limited basis. Per The Bellingham Herald:
 
A representative of Top Shelf, one of the first legal retail marijuana outlets in Washington, said Wednesday, Aug. 6, the store will become the first in the state to sell edible marijuana.
 
Top Shelf had about 500 packages of edibles – from Green Chief of Granite Falls – available starting at 10 p.m. Wednesday, which should make some customers happy.
 
The three types of edibles available are a trail mix, a ‘party mix,’ and ‘crazy carnival nuts.’ I’m told by people in Washington that the prices for the edibles are ‘astronomical’ as one person stated. The price for the trail mix is five times what it’s going for at medical marijuana outlets in Washington. But, if people are willing to pay the higher price tag, so be it I guess.
