Members Of Congress Tell Obama To Remove Marijuana From Schedule 1

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 13th 2014 by THCFinder
obama-congress-marijuanaToday 18 members of the United States Congress sent a letter to President Barack Obama calling on him to remove marijuana from Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act. This issue has drawn a lot of press lately and there has been a lot of debate about what such a move would mean. On one end you have people like me that want it removed because it’s sound science. On the other end of the spectrum you have people like Kevin Sabet who think it will have zero impact, yet still want to keep things how they are.
 
The language of the letter is as follows:
 
We are encouraged by your recent comments in your interview with David Remnick in the January 27, 2014 issue of the New Yorker, about the shifting public opinion on the legalization of marijuana. We request that you take action to help alleviate the harms to society caused by the federal Schedule I classification of marijuana.
 
Lives and resources are wasted on enforcing harsh, unrealistic, and unfair marijuana laws. Nearly two-thirds of a million people every year are arrested for marijuana possession. We spend billions every year enforcing marijuana laws, which disproportionately impact minorities. According to the ACLU, black Americans are nearly four times more likely than whites to be arrested for marijuana possession, despite comparable marijuana usage rates.
 
You said that you don’t believe marijuana is any more dangerous than alcohol; a fully legalized substance, and believe it to be less dangerous “in terms of its impact on the individual consumer.” This is true. Marijuana, however, remains listed in the federal Controlled Substances Act at Schedule I, the strictest classification, along with heroin and LSD. This is a higher listing than cocaine and methamphetamine, Schedule II substances that you gave as examples of harder drugs. This makes sense.
 
Classifying marijuana as Schedule I at the federal level perpetuates an unjust and irrational system. Schedule I recognizes no medical use, disregarding both medical evidence and the laws of nearly half of th estates that have legalized medical marijuana. A Schedule I or II classification also means that marijuana businesses in states where adult or medical use are legal cannot deduct business expenses from their taxes or take tax credits due to Section 280E of the federal tax code.
 
We request that you instruct Attorney General Holder to delist or classify marijuana in a more appropriate way, at the very least eliminating from Schedule I or II. Furthermore, one would hope that that (sic) your Administration officials publicly reflect your views on this matter. Statements such as the one from DEA chief of operations James L. Capra that the legalization of marijuana at the state level is “reckless and irresponsible” serve no purposes other than to inflame passions and misinform the public.

VSOG - Sativa

The "Ocean Grown" OG Kush comes from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles and is considered to be the strain that put Southern California buds on par with the flowers coming from up North. Developed over three generations and years of stabilizing as well as developing the perfect fertilizer / food for this particular strain, resulted in a phenomenal kush, said to be the strongest indica today. OG Kush, when properly grown, has the highest THC content of all kushes.

Cannabis Jolly Rancher Candies

Cannabis Ranchers Candy
 
Most stoners are familiar with Jolly Ranchers, the tough to chew candy that a lot of people love. I always preferred the green ones but of course there was a grape flavor, watermelon, etc. Even today, it's tempting to buy these candies at the store when they're spotted. What's even better is that you can now make these yourself at home and even add in cannabis so you have a medicated candy that's extremely easy to make.
 
What You'll Need;
3/4 cup natural flavoring
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
Hash (the amount it up to your discretion)
 
Take the hash, corn syrup, and sugar and mix them all together until the sugar has dissolved. Every batch of this stuff varies so you'll need to have a food thermometer. Put the mixture in the over until it reaches 295 degrees. Pull it out of the oven and mix in the flavoring that you've chosen to use. Grab a mold that you'd like to use or just put them all together in one pan but be sure that it's non stick. Put the candy in the freezer until they've hardened, usually about an hour or two. Remove them and wrap them in either wax paper or something along those lines. Now you're ready to chow down on some awesome medicated candy that you made yourself!

Cannabis And the Flu

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, February, 12th 2014 by THCFinder

cannabis-and-the-flu

Cold season is still upon us, even though most people are itching for their summer clothes. The flu in particular seems to be a real problem this year and many people have suffered that terrible sickness already. But for those who have managed to stay healthy (or those that are over it and want to stay that way), it seems as if marijuana can help with that. Since getting a flu shot creeps some people out, many are seeking alternative methods to keep their bodies in good shape this season.

The substances that fight the flu and strengthen the immune system are known as flavonoids. They are found in all kinds of plants and are responsible for plant colors, including red, orange, blue, green, etc. There are twenty different varieties of flavonoids found in the cannabis plant as well. But while there are only a few varieties of these flu fighting agents in some plants, the cannabis plant contains flavonoids that are not found in other plants, like the cannaflavins. This is also what acts as part of the anti inflammatory effects of the cannabis plant.

If you're getting sick a lot, it means that your body is lacking in the important flavonoid department. Marijuana can help to fix that imbalance. The plant helps to protect blood cells from rupture, as well as increase the power of your body's vitamin C supply. Benefits of cannabis in this aspect also include the anti-inflammatory agents and it also functions as an antioxidant. As you can see, the plant has amazing benefits when fighting the flu, with the last one being that it provides the body with antibiotic activity and disrupts the function of microorganisms, such as viruses like the flu and bacteria.

On the off chance that you do end up getting sick, try to avoid smoking. Medicate by ingesting your cannabis through edibles. If you smoke, you're only going to further irritate your throat and lungs. You want to be getting better, not worse. You can also make tea, which can always make a person feel better when they're sick. Stay high and healthy!
