Things Stoners Learn On Road Trips
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, October, 1st 2014 by THCFinder
Taking a trip across the country can seem like a lot of fun. And it can be. Depending on where your route takes you, you can witness some pretty amazing sights and places. Moving around a lot also gives you the chance to meet people who you never would've met otherwise. The world is a big place and traveling it is something that most people should try to accomplish at some point in their lives. Although it may seem super glamerous, there are things that should be known before embarking on such a journey. It's best to be prepared for things such as this before you leave so you know what to expect.
- Money disappears quickly. Whether you're paying for gas or food, it adds up quick! Be sure that you take that into account when planning your trip. Depending on how long you're on the move for, food cost can definitely reach well above $500 and gas is even more expensive, seeing as how most places in the US are at least $3.20 a gallon.
- People aren't nice everywhere. And people who know that you're living in a vehicle traveling around the country can be very rude. They'll try to deter you from making your trip as much as possible and can be downright mean about it. While some people may be a Debbie Downer, don't let their negative attitude influence your trip. This is supposed to be a growing experience, not a negative one.
- It can strain your relationship.. Big time. If you leave without your significant other, the distance can really hurt you two. Long distance is tough and it's important to remember that cell phone service isn't available everywhere. You may go days without speaking and that can wear nerves thin. If you decide to go with your significant other, you also run the risk of fighting. Living on the road can be extremely stressful and full of bad days. It's important to be patient and tolerant of each other in this tough time. You're in it together.
- Cell phones don't work everywhere and that can be scary for some people. Expect to have a super high phone bill at the end of your trip due to roaming costs (yes that's still a thing... Roaming) or be smart and pay your bills in advance if you know how long you're going to be gone for. If possible, carry a backup pre-paid phone with loaded minutes just in case your phone goes out of service. When on the road, you need to make sure that you can get a hold of help if needed.
- Showers aren't easy to come by. Hotels may seem like a damn good plan but they're expensive and some are just downright gross. Be sure that you pack dry shampoo and baby wipes, just in case you find yourself going a few days without seeing a real bathroom.
- Most importantly, be 420 prepared! Have a few clean pipes hanging around (stashed appropriately of course) or maybe a few packs of papers. Be sure that you bring enough bud or concentrate to keep you high and happy for your trip. Without bud, the road life gets very nerve wracking, From traffic to blocked roads to bad weather. There are so many things that happen on the road that will drive you crazy. Don't let it get you down! Just remember to pack all the weed you think you'll need and if you don't pack it, plan to stop at friend's houses that have it.
New Michigan Marijuana Rules Being Debated Today
Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 1st 2014 by THCFinder
A proposed set of rules altering the nature of the Michigan Medical Marihuana Program (MMMP) will be considered by a Joint Committee today in Lansing.
The rules met stiff resistance from medical marijuana community members during a hearing on the proposed changes earlier this year. Members of Americans for Safe Access- Michigan, Cannabis Patients United, Michigan Moms United, The Michigan Cannabis Cancer Project, The Human Solution and others raised concerns regarding the proposed fee changes- and a first-in-the-nation all electronic registration process.
Current fees to enroll in the MMMP are $100 for two years and $25 for two years for people receiving federal assistance under the SSI program. The proposal would change the fee to $65 for two years for everyone, eliminating the discount for those financially disadvantaged ill and injured Michigan residents.
Also proposed: eliminating all paper records and creating an all-electronic database. All supporting documents- driver’s license, medical records- would have to be scanned into a computer and then transferred to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), the branch of government charged with the administration of the MMMP. Currently those records are photocopied and sent in via traditional mail delivery.
Activists complained that the most rural and most impoverished of the MMMP participants would find this standard a hardship. Others pointed out that LARA and their predecessor in controlling the MMMP, the Department of Community Health, had never competently managed to administer the issuance of cards and the conducting of background checks while using paper records. To entrust a totally new system to the people that couldn’t manage a paper records system that the state has been using for years seemed overly optimistic to the hearing participants.

Have you ever tried eating your marijuana rather than smoking it? By this point, the answer is probably yes. Majority of stoners have tried pot brownies at least once in their lives or perhaps some other type of medicated treat. And up until recently, there was really no reports of people freaking out and doing unsafe things after ingesting edibles. But since the legalization in Colorado and Washington, there seems to be more and more confusion surrounding these THC infused goodies.
First off, the argument that edibles are geared towards children is completely ridiculous. Recently, I posted to my Instagram that the fact that candy cigarettes are still sold in stores as well as the fact that Four Loko cans (the same ones that had to be recalled and rereleased because people were dying from caffeine ODs) strongly resemble Arizona Iced Tea cans. Additionally, companies like Kellogg's and Viacom have been threatening with lawsuits because their packaging entices children to eat unhealthy foods, which has caused a spike in childhood obesity. If parents want to complain about bad products being geared towards children, perhaps they should first look at what's on the grocery store shelves because it's certainly not edibles that are the problem... That box of high fructose, sugar saturated trash on the shelf at Stop And Shop is.
When a young teen jumped to his death from a hotel balcony in Colorado after allegedly eating too many edibles, people reeled. According to the coroner, Levy Thamba, age 19, was "intoxicated with marijuana" at the time of death. For spring break, Thamba and three friends went to Denver to hang out and ended up getting their hands on some edibles. After ingesting the cookies, the friends claim that Thamba started acting differently, tearing things off of the walls of their hotel room and speaking erratically. The investigation report states that the friends calmed the boy down temporarily and left him alone in his room to chill out. But as soon as the friends turned their backs, Thamba jumped up out of bed, ran to the hotel balcony, and threw himself over the railing from the fourth floor. Even now, it is hard to find the solid findings of the case, as the last update in the Denver Post states that "it remains unclear how many cookies Thamba ate or how much time had passed since he ingested them". Although some people speculate that cannabis can cause people to have psychotic episodes if predisposed to such incidents, new studies released say that it's possible that people with mental health issues are drawn to cannabis because it reverses the imbalance in their brains, rather than enhances it.
Edibles are not bad. What is bad is the fact that people feel compelled to blame a brownie for their own mistakes. Colorado has placed a billboard up, which reads "Don't let a candy bar ruin your vacation. With edibles, start low and go slow" which enforces the idea that it's not the food that's bad but the people ingesting it. Much like the incidents with the alcoholic beverage Four Loko, the issue isn't the product but those using it. Some people just do not know their limits and find it silly to try to moderate, whether they think they're tough or trying to impress someone. Edibles are a very important part of the cannabis community, especially for those patients who are not able to smoke. By labeling edibles as "super dangerous" and turning them in to a negative thing, organizations, police, doctors, and the government are just undermining the hard work that the cannabis community has put in to making the industry a positive movement.

A sativa-dominant hybrid, Super Sour Diesel has a candy-like smell and a very distinct taste. Great for energy and focus, and works well in the daytime when you have to get things done.
