Reality vs. Movies
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, September, 25th 2013 by THCFinder
Stoners love their movies just as much as they love their weed. My boyfriend has the most extensive DVD collection out of everyone I've ever seen. And trust me, we've watched them all in the company of each other and a big jar of weed. Half Baked, Dazed And Confused, and High School are only a few of the great pothead classics. Movies, however, seem to really exaggerate the effects of pot on the people that smoke it. What's the real deal on getting high as compared to the movie version?
High School is a dope stoner flick that I suggest everyone check out! This A+ student gets stoned with a childhood friend after getting accepted in to Yale (I think?) . Unfortunately for him, a young girl at his school recently got stoned before a spelling competition and ended up getting busted. While the two buddies toke, the principal makes an announcement that they will be drug testing the whole school to expel all of the "druggies". In an attempt to save their asses, the two friends steal a jar of kief from the most f-ed up dealer in town to put in some pot brownies that they plan on giving to the entire school via the traditional school bake sale. So basically, they get the whole school high. Like... Really high. But they portray it like the kids are all zombies. They stumble, mutter, and one ends up spending the whole movie trying to find the administration office. The movie is hilarious but I can't agree with how they show the stoners.
Here's how I am when I'm stoned; I smile a lot, I pay attention to things, and I don't get mad when some dude cuts me off on the highway. I don't stumble around and mutter like the kids they show on TV. I've also never felt like I'm flying or tried to feed a horse a ton of munchies. Most of the time, I sit on my couch and watch TV or end up writing a bunch of articles or possibly just smoking more weed. I can't lie though, the flying feeling would be pretty dope if it actually happened. No stoner that I've ever spoken to feels like they're legitimately flying. While you may be up in the clouds, you're not actually up there... As much as we would like to be!
Basically, the movies exaggerate because it's definitely funnier to see stoners act silly. At the same time though, there's the issue of people thinking that that's what stoners are actually like. Which we're not. Potheads have come a long way since just goofing around smoking pot. All stoners go on adventures and eat munchies and have good times but not all of them spend a whole night just trying to snag some burgers. I know that when I'm stoned and going to get a late night snack, I get to my destination... FAST! ;)

S. Jersey Medical Marijuana Site Poised to Open
Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Wed, September, 25th 2013 by THCFinder
There are no signs out front, but people still show up at a drab beige warehouse outside Atlantic City to ask whether medical marijuana is available.
Inside the cavernous building, 1,500 plants are growing beneath glowing fuchsia, yellow, and white LED lights inside a makeshift room. Soon, the sweet-smelling, leafy plants will be harvested. They now stand 18 inches tall, each in a three-gallon pot, after three months of nurturing.
Growers in white lab coats fussed over them last week, culling out unwanted half-male half-female specimens while three New Jersey health inspectors watched.
In about two weeks, the cannabis will be gathered, dried and packaged. William Thomas, Compassionate Care Foundation's hands-on CEO, told The Philadelphia Inquirer that the bar-code number on each seed will be checked again when the final product is placed in a vial. Then, on Oct. 15, CCF hopes to open, becoming South Jersey's first dispensary.
But don't envision patients lining up at the clinic's entrance at the front of the warehouse, in an industrial park in this suburban community, nine miles from the ocean. No walk-ins are allowed.

Wash. state shops for a bank to handle marijuana money
Category: News | Posted on Wed, September, 25th 2013 by THCFinder
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Wanted: A bank for state government. Must offer attentive customer service. Must be able to handle several deposits a day, with drop-offs of up to 40 bags at a time. Must allow an account to be overdrafted during the day by more than $1.2 billion.
Oh, and must accept proceeds from the sale of marijuana.
As Washington shops for a bank, that last demand might not be as hard to meet as it sounds.
The state's current banker has already agreed to it, according to the state treasurer, who says despite federal restrictions Washington shouldn't face reprisals for banking and spending the revenue that is coming soon from pot taxes and fees.
"I'm not too worried about it," Treasurer Jim McIntire said. "It's actually one of the advantages of having Bank of America as your contractor. It's unlikely, I think, that the federal government would raid them. . And they're big enough to look out for themselves on this."
Bank of America's seven-year contract to hold the state's main account runs through June 30, and the state asked for bids this month in a request that specifically calls out deposits of marijuana revenue as a must-have.
In the meantime, the state expects to start depositing revenue from Initiative 502, which legalized the recreational use of marijuana. The Liquor Control Board will receive its first fees in November from applicants asking the board for licenses to grow and sell the drug, and the Department of Revenue starts collecting taxes as soon as March after the first licenses are awarded.
Much of the revenue could arrive in the form of cash, since banks are reluctant to do business with pot dealers without changes in federal policy that treats banking of marijuana proceeds as money laundering.
Handling all those bills presents a hurdle for the state Department of Revenue. But some had suggested a bigger problem would be trying to store and spend the money.
