Poll Finds Texans Ready To Legalize Marijuana
Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, October, 9th 2013 by THCFinder
Voters in Texas are among the latest to hop on board the marijuana legalization bandwagon, according to a poll released this week. The Public Policy Polling survey had support for marijuana legalization at 58%, support for medical marijuana at 58%, and support for decriminalizing small-time possession at 61%.
The poll was commissioned by the Marijuana Policy Project. The survey of 860 randomly selected Texas voters was conducted September 27-29 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.3%.
“Marijuana prohibition has been just as big a failure as alcohol prohibition,” said MPP executive director Rob Kampia, a part-time Austin resident. “Most Texans agree that marijuana sales should be conducted by legitimate businesses instead of drug cartels in the underground market.”
The poll’s legalization question — “Would you support or oppose changing Texas law to regulate and tax marijuana similarly to alcohol, where stores would be licensed to sell marijuana to adults 21 and older?” — was the only question that allowed respondents to qualify their support as “strongly support” or “somewhat support.” Some 41% strongly supported legalization, with another 17% somewhat supporting it.
Unusually, support for legalization was stronger among women (59%) than among men (56%). Also going against the grain, support was stronger among blacks (61%) and Latinos (60%) than Anglos (56%). In most polls across the country, men and whites are more likely to support legalization than women, blacks, or Latinos.
By political affiliation, legalization won strong majority support among Democrats (70%) and independents (57%), while even nearly half of Republicans (48%) also favored it. Legalization also won majority support across all age groups, with even those 65 and older coming in at 52%.
The poll also found that 61% of state voters support removing criminal penalties for possession of up to one ounce of marijuana and replacing them with a civil offense punishable by a fine of up to $100 with no possibility of jail time. Only 30% said they were opposed to that. Under current Texas law, it is a criminal offense for a person to possess a small amount of marijuana, and he or she can be sentenced to up to a year in jail and fined up to $2,000.

Strain Review; Trainwreck
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, October, 9th 2013 by THCFinder
The name really says it all. This strain will knock you on your ass after you cough up both of your lungs. You'll be stoned within the first few seconds of that first hit and is a strain that you can smoke whenever you feel like. It's an enjoyable high that will allow you to be productive and go about your day. Just be careful... This is one of the stinkiest strains on the market!
Wreck is good for pretty much anything. It depends on the person smoking it. Some say that this bud makes them highly social and extremely creative. Others state that it's a great bedtime bud and will relax you off in to dream land. It's a popular strain and also very stinky. Bagging this will not prevent people from smelling it. Make sure you're carrying it in a smell proof container.
The negative side to Trainwreck would probably be the overwhelming creativity that some people experience. While sometimes, it's good to have a lot of thoughts in your head, it becomes hard to focus occasionally in conversations because the weed causes far too many interesting ideas. It also may hinder sleeping, as a lot of people have issues when they try to sleep and have too much going on in their head. The first time that you try Trainwreck, do it during the mid-afternoon so that you know how it will effect you. If you end up taking a nap, it's not the end of the world. And if you start writing a story, chances are it'll be a good one!
Trainwreck is a Hybrid sativa-dominant cannabis strain that hits you as hard as a freight train that you don't see coming. Burns quick and produces thick smoke that will almost certainly get you coughing.
