Five Famous Writers That Smoked Weed

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, November, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
five-famour-writersEven though there are studies debunking the “cannabis makes me creative” idea, stoners everywhere will say otherwise. There are a good amount of people who smoke that are some sort of creative, whether that be a tattoo artist, a graphic designer, or a social media specialist. It’s kind of like a “chicken or the egg” saying. Do creative people just like to smoke weed or does the weed enhance a person’s creativity? Cannabis is said to be a mind expanding substance, allowing people to come up with better ideas and to transfer their thoughts to paper more easily. This theory is backed by the hundreds of famous creative people that have brought us entertainment over the years. From newer names like Seth Rogan to the not-so-known tokers such as Shakespeare, it’s clear why people assume that weed and creative people just go together like peanut butter and jelly. Especially when it comes to writing, those who have a lot to write down usually have a bit of bud to help bust through that writer’s block. As a writer myself, I do find that weed makes it easier to type. While this list only contains five names, there are surely many writers out there that utilize cannabis when working.
 
  1. Since we already mentioned him, we’ll start with Shakespeare. Although the famous writer didn’t ever admit to smoking the reefer, it was reported that pieces of pipes were found near his garden. When researchers tested the pipes, they were found to contain traces of hallucinogenics as well as cocaine. Add in the fact that in Shakespeare’s time, Elizabethan England was using the cannabis plant in fabrics as well as paper. Even if Shakespeare wasn’t smoking weed, it’s thought that he was using drugs to enhance his play writing abilities. If you read some of his works, it’s fairly easy to see that the man must’ve been using a substance, as one of his plays even contains a character that makes pies out of people.
  2. As a horror writer, Stephen King has a lot of ridiculous thoughts floating around in his head. After his car accident, things got even weirder and his somewhat scary stories got terrifying. You ever read “It”? Ever read it stoned? King is a master writer and has admitted to smoking weed in the past. Plus, his entire book Tommyknockers was based on his fight with cocaine addiction, I believe, if I’m remembering his words from “In Writing” correctly. King has even said “I think marijuana should not only be legal, I think it should be a cottage industry. It would be wonderful in the state of Maine. There’s some pretty good homegrown dope. I’m sure it would be even better if you could grow it with fertilizers and have greenhouses.”
  3. Hobbits, wizards, dragons, etc. You know that JRR Tolken was smoking something when he wrote the books on Middle Earth. With such a wide range of landscapes, characters, and plots, Tolken’s imagination is something to cherish. Even now, his books are being made in to movies and creating splashes in movie theaters everywhere. If the movies are watched carefully, you’ll notice that the hobbits love to get together and smoke “pipe weed”. Even Galdalf indulges in the smoking!
  4. Dr. Hunter S. Thompson was a well known drug connoisseur so it’s no surprise that he’s on this list. However, his work is so respected, it would probably be offensive to not mention him. In addition to being very in depth in drug culture, Thompson was also a novelist, journalist, and occasionally, a politician. Thompson reportedly told High Times, “I have always loved marijuana. It has been a source of joy and comfort to me for many years. And I still think of it as a basic staple of life, along with beer and ice and grapefruits… And millions of Americans agree with me.”
  5. A poet, a writer, and a painter. Jack Kerouac is a well known name in the free spirited community. He wrote the book On The Road and the novel is practically a bible for those who enjoy drug culture. Kerouac created the term “beat generation”, characterized by a generation of people with respect to native cultures, sexual revolution, negative feelings towards war, as well as the acceptance and decriminalization of marijuana.

AK-47 (Hybrid)

AK-47 - hybrid

Despite its aggressive name, AK-47 has many peaceful tendencies. First bred in 1992, the name suggests the power packed in its dark, resinous, compact buds that bristle with red hairs and glistening trichomes. AK-47 has a spiced aroma bordering on skunk, with a hint of sandalwood, but tastes sweeter and more floral than the smell would lead one to expect. The AK-47 buzz is immediate and long lasting with an alert but mellow cerebral effect. Lab tests have rated the THC content at over 20 percent, making it a "one hit wonder" for many smokers. This variety can be a little spacey, but is great for playing and listening to music, or other social activities. AK-47 helped put Serious Seeds on the map with a 2nd place finish in the hydroponics competition and a 3rd place in the overall category at the 1995 Cannabis Cup in the Netherlands.

Five Awesome Video Games For Stoners

Category: Fun | Posted on Fri, November, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
5-awesome-video-games-for-stoners
Gaming and smoking go hand in hand. There are thousands of video games out there. Every gamer likes something different. Some prefer first person shooter, while others like RPGs, where others will be stuck playing puzzle games for days. With new games coming out every few months, it can be extremely difficult to find a game that you like playing without a little bit of guidance in the subject. Hence this list! If you have a favorite video game that you get sucked in to while smoking, hopefully we at least included one that’s close! Now light up a joint and grab your controller.
 
Borderlands
This game gets far too ridiculous! There are thousands of weapons combos, I believe it goes up in to the million combination mark. Since you can combine a fire thrower with poisonous bullets, Borderlands will make your head spin just from the weapons choices alone. If that’s not enough for you, you’ll love the open world style. Plus, you’ll be able to change views from an RPG style to a first person shooter, while simultaneously leveling up your character to a massive weapon wielding monster. Did I neglect to mention the alien killing? The whole point of the game is to complete missions, kill Skags, and avoid getting your dune buggy stolen by bandits… Don’t worry, that comes equipped with a gun too.
 
Little Big Planet
Although somewhat of a cuter game, Little Big Planet requires some serious smoking in order to play. As a tiny little burlap bag person, your goal is to run around, collect bubbles, and free the worlds from tyrants that have started terrorizing the Little Big Planet inhabitants. The game can be two player, including levels that can’t usually be beaten unless you have a friend. You get to customize your character with outfits too that include zebra stripes, bunny ears, and tutu skirts. The game also allows you to play on line, joining players from around the world in the hunt to collect bubbles.
 
Super Smash Brothers BRAWL
Nintendo nailed it when it comes to Super Smash Brothers Brawl. The game includes characters from all different Nintendo heavy hitters. Play as Kirby, StarFox, or the Pokemon Trainer (which gives you a pick of Pokemon including Charizard, Ivysaur, and Squirtle) and battle your friends or play through the levels, eventually beating the giant evil entity that’s been turning all the characters in to tiny little stone statues. This game gets even more fun when you’re sitting around smoking and button mashing, as people tend to forget stats once the bong has been hit so many times.
 
Skyrim
Getting high, playing a video game, and forgetting what year it was has never been easier. Skyrim is from the same people who made Elder Scrolls and will drag you in to a world of dragons and fantasy faster then you exhaling a huge hit in the form of a ten minute coughing bender. The open world allows you to go where ever you want and there are thousands of quests to complete. Some people have invested over 200 hours in to this game, only to find that they’re still not close to beating it. If you’re looking to get lost in an open world fantasy RPG, Skyrim is what you’re looking for.
 
Halo
There’s a great deal of these games out now. While sometimes, they’re kind of difficult to get in to, the Halo series is a great game to play if you feel like getting high and screaming obscenities at people on line. Killing aliens and zooming around the surface of strange planets is sure to waste some time. The game is multiplayer too, allowing your friends to join in on your sprees as well. Getting stoned and saving some planets never seemed this easy!

Bill Introduced To Overturn Ban On VA Physicians Recommending Medical Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
mmj-for-veteransU.S. House Representatives Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), along with ten bipartisan Congressional cosponsors introduced the “Veterans Equal Access Act” (VEAA) today, marking a concerted federal effort to allow our country’s veterans to become medical marijuana patients in states where it’s legal. The VEAA would simply allow Veterans Affairs (VA) physicians to discuss and recommend medical marijuana to their patients, a right enjoyed by physicians outside of the VA system.
 
“Post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury are just as damaging and harmful as any injuries that are visible from the outside,” said Blumenauer, the bill’s author. “Sometimes even more so because of the devastating effect they can have on a veteran’s family. We should be allowing these wounded warriors access to the medicine that will help them survive and thrive, including medical marijuana, not treating them like criminals and forcing them into the shadows. It’s shameful.”
 
The VEAA is cosponsored by a balanced mix of ten members on each side of the aisle, as well as a range of members from states that have, and still have not, legalized marijuana for medical use: Dina Titus (D-NV), Justin Amash (R-MI), Paul Broun (R-GA), Walter Jones (R-NC), Thomas Massie (R-KY), Sam Farr (D-CA), Jared Polis (D-CO), Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), Steve Stockman (R-TX) and Steve Cohen (D-TN).
 
In 2011, the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) issued a directive which said, “VHA policy does not administratively prohibit Veterans who participate in State marijuana programs from also participating in VHA substance abuse programs, pain control programs, or other clinical programs where the use of marijuana may be considered inconsistent with treatment goals.” However, in addition to giving wide discretion to continue discrimination against veterans, the policy also forbids VA physicians from issuing medical marijuana recommendations to their patients.
 
For many veterans, their VA physician is their primary care physician and they have no need to go outside of the VA system for health care. In fact, since more than a million U.S. veterans are at risk of homelessness due to poverty, they don’t have the option to pay for private physicians in order to meet their health care needs. As a result, veterans are either denied critical pain medication and other pharmaceuticals because of their medical marijuana use, or they are forced by their VA physicians to go without an important and adjunct therapy.
 
“Millions of Americans suffer from PTSD and chronic pain, but our veterans are even more adversely affected by these conditions, and yet we fail to treat them with the same level of respect,” said Mike Liszewski, Government Affairs Director with Americans for Safe Access, the country’s leading medical marijuana advocacy group. “Veterans must be given the same rights and health care options that we give other Americans, especially where medical marijuana is concerned.”
 
Researchers were granted permission earlier this year to study the effects of medical marijuana on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). However, soon after, the University of Mississippi, the sole supplier of research-grade cannabis in the U.S., said it was unable to provide the requested strains, causing delays in the research. More recently, in June, the study hit another snag after the lead researcher, Dr. Sue Sisley, was abruptly fired by the University of Arizona.
 
In March, the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs published a study that found participants who used inhaled marijuana reported an average of 75 percent reduction in PTSD symptoms.

Black Domina - Hybrid

Black Domina is a powerful smoke. The resinous buds range from a harsh peppery scent to the dark smell of blackberries. Not intended for the sweet tooth, Black Domina buds taste smoky and spicy, leaving some tokers wondering if the pipe contains hashish along with the weed. It embodies the indica high, with overpowering body effects. This strain is a great buzz for a day off or a nightcap when no serious work lies ahead. This multiple cross is basically the result of stacking four of Sensi's heaviest selected indicas in one hybrid: the Afghani SA, the Ortega hybrid developed in Canada, and a combination of the Hash Plant and the famed Northern Lights, both of which have origins in the U.S. Pacific Northwest.
