Washington DC Council Bans Pre-Employment Marijuana Testing

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 4th 2014 by THCFinder
pre-employment-marijuana-testing-banned-in-waThe pre-employment marijuana test has plagued job seeking marijuana consumers for many, many years. There have been numerous jobs in my life that I would have been great at, and that I desperately needed at the time, but I couldn’t pass the pre-employment drug test because I knew I had marijuana in my system. I know that I’m not alone. Fortunately for Washington D.C. residents, arbitrary pre-employment drug testing for marijuana was banned by the D.C. Council this week. Per the DCist:
The D.C. Council unanimously passed temporary legislation yesterday that will prohibit an employer from drug-testing potential employees for marijuana before a conditional job offer has been made.
The bill, the “Prohibition of Pre-Employment Marijuana Testing Emergency Act of 2014″ was introduced by Councilmember Vincent Orange (D-At Large) in March of this year, and explicitly states that an employer cannot test a potential employee for marijuana use until after an offer for employment has been made. After an employee has been hired, however, they “must still adhere to the workplace policies set forth by their employer.”
The bill still allows employers to require a drug test after employment has been offered, so applicants still run the risk of not getting the job. However, that denial of employment due to a failed UA will only come after the job has been offered. I’d love to see how many employers get as far as screening applicants, determining which one is the best fit, offering the position to what they feel is the best candidate, then have to grapple with a failed UA by said candidate. The candidate will have risen above everyone else, and employers will be forced to face their reefer madness fears and balance that against what seems in every way to be a qualified employee and the decision to retain that employee. From my experience, marijuana consumers can be very excellent employees. They shouldn’t be discriminated against solely because they choose to unwind with a substance that is far safer than alcohol or tobacco, two substances that most employers don’t deny employment for.

Five Cannabis Facts You Should Know

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, December, 4th 2014 by THCFinder


1.     Marijuana and hemp are not the same thing! Some people think that hemp should be kept illegal alongside marijuana, even though the hemp plant won’t get you high if you smoke it. The two plants are used for different purposes. While marijuana is used for medical purposes, hemp is used for more industrial purposes like building, clothing, and paper.

2.     Americans used to consider it patriotic to grow hemp. When the states were still just 13 colonies, the law in 1916 required settlers to grow up. It was used for rope, sails, and clothing and both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned hemp farms. There was even a draft of the Declaration of Independence written on hemp paper. Not only that but Betsy Ross sewed the flag with hemp made products!

3.     In ancient China, Ma (marijuana) was used for clothing, medicine, fuel, and food for as far back as 6,000 BC. But the use of the plant in a medical sense dates back even further to 2737 BC. The Red Emperor Shen Nung is credited with writing a document called the Herbal, which is a list of various herbs, which includes marijuana. Additionally, in 2 AD, Hua T’o used the female plant (so probably flowers) and red wine as an anesthesia while he preformed painful surgeries including loin incisions and organ grafts.

4.     A group of 5,000 smokers were examined by UCSF ad University of Alabama showed that people who smoke a few joints a week actually have a stronger external blowing stronger lung capacity than non-users. In 2005, UCLA released a paper that shows marijuana may actually help to prevent the formation of lung cancer, unlike tobacco. Tobacco contains nicotine and is a known carcinogen, while cannabis contains cannabinoids and THC, which help to defeat and prevent cancer.

5.     Hemp is an extremely versatile product that could actually save the world if used correctly. As humans, we are wasteful and the packing that contains most of what we consume ends up in landfills. It rarely gets recycled and contributes to the growing waste problem that the world faces. Hemp can be made in to clothing, canvas, rope, paper, food, and the seeds can be turned in to fuel. This would eliminate the need for cotton, gasoline, nylon, and the destruction of trees. After the hemp plant is harvested, the soil is actually in better condition then before the hemp plants were there, unlike tobacco. Legalizing hemp and cannabis would produce thousands of jobs, another thing that is needed in such a suffering economy.

Afghan Kush - Indica

Tons of dull orange hairs gives this indica a orangish brownish tint. Soft green color that is overpowered by the thick hairs. Afghan Kush smells like a mango orange farm with a hint of funk to it that is comparable to an old musty basement. Does not have the trademark Kush smell, but it does have its own unique odor and it works well for night time use. Provides an energetic burst of energy right off the bat. After a few minutes it provides a very relaxed focus feeling. Keeps you right on the edge of energetic and couch locked. Great for anxiety and relaxing.


Eight Edible Rules

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, December, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
edible-rules-article-thcfEdibles have been in the negative spotlight for a while now, following a few reports that suggested the tasty treats had been the cause of murder and suicide. But are edibles really that dangerous? No. Not if you know what you’re doing. While ingesting THC and passing it through your digestive system does actually increase potency (from Delta-9 to Delta-11), edibles don’t usually make people freak out. But if you’re worried about taking too much, here are eight rules for ingesting edibles.
  • Body mass, gender, body chemistry, metabolism, and age all effect how an edible will treat you. When buying edibles, ask your bud tender what they would recommend for your body type and age. THC effects everyone differently and it’s important to know how strong something might be before you eat too much.
  • If you’re a heavy cannabis user, an edible won’t effect you the same as someone who’s a newbie. If your bud tender isn’t asking you if you’ve smoked before, ask them what they think and if they have a different recommendation. 
  • Eating edibles on an empty stomach can have negative consequences. It is recommended that you treat edibles much like Vicodin or Percocet. 
  • Measure your edible doses in milligrams. For example, if you get a 100mg bar of chocolate and it splits in to 10 pieces, each piece will roughly contain 10mgs.
  • Taking less right off the bat is better than eating the whole edible. If you think it won’t effect you like others, you’re probably wrong. While you can always eat more of the edible, you can’t make yourself eat less. As a newbie edible eater, you need to pay attention to this kind of thing. 
  • Every edible making company has different dosages, which can prove to be difficult when you’re trying to find one you like. The best suggestion is to try multiple different companies until you find one that you like and that gives you the feeling that you’re looking for.
  • Don’t expect the same high that you get from smoking a bowl. Edibles effect the mind differently and also because of the small amount of membranes that you have in the stomach. The THC doesn’t absorb in the same way in your stomach as it does in your lungs.
  • Always remember that as of right now, there is no mandatory THC testing when it comes to edibles. Edibles are extremely hard to dose and Colorado hopes to have an edible testing department soon. Edible companies jump all over the place with their dosing information. As said above, find something that you like and stick with it!
