CNN Trying to Stop Strain of Marijuana Being Named for Dr. Sanjay Gupta

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
gupta-kushA medical marijuana dispensary in Colorado is being told by CNN that its lighthearted humor in naming a strain of weed after Dr. Sanjay Gupta is no laughing matter.
 
The cable news giant, owned by Time Warner (TWX), spoke with the Boulder dispensary and asked that they rename the pot in honor of something other than their chief medical 
 
“We may have to change the name,” dispensary owner Jeff Kless told Animal New York. “CNN phoned us and asked us to remove it. I think we’ll leave it alone for the weekend and see what happens.”
 
CNN has not yet issued a cease and desist letter — which will likely cite copyright infringement.
 
For the time being, though, the Sanjay Gupta Kush is selling at Helping Hands Herbals Dispensary  for $35 for an 1/8 and $12 a gram. In the world of medical marijuana sales, it’s supposedly a deal.
 
According to the dispensary’s press release, “By naming a cannabis strain after Dr. Gupta, this is our way of tipping our hat and honoring him for taking such a firm, science-based stance on behalf of marijuana as ‘real’ medicine. He is confirming what our patients have been saying for years. Marijuana is hardly folk medicine.”

Should marijuana be legalized in Texas?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, August, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
texas-mmjIn 2012, two states, Colorado and Washington, passed laws legalizing marijuana for recreational use. For many years, pro-marijuana groups have promoted and encouraged legalizing it in every state, claiming it harms no one and it can only benefit humans. Should Texas also legalize it for recreational and medicinal use?
 
Medical research about marijuana’s effects on the human body suggests mixed and inconclusive results. Because of its chemical compounds, some studies show marijuana’s positive health benefits for relieving pain and reducing discomfort. However, other studies suggest it produces injury to health, including psychotic disorders and dull apathy in users.
 
As modern society slowly accepts marijuana use, some states allow doctor prescriptions for medical marijuana. Cancer patients and people with terminal illness use it to soothe pain and stimulate appetite. Rather than patients suffering and agonizing with intensive pain, marijuana use relieves and lightens it.
 
People who have glaucoma, a serious eye disease, benefit from smoking marijuana. It reduces the intraocular pressure on the eyeball, giving an individual comfort and relief. However, recent research suggests that users must inhale marijuana smoke every three hours for effective treatment, leading doctors to conclude that treating glaucoma with marijuana stands as a poor choice.
 
While other recreational drugs have questionable value for humans, marijuana has some consumer advantages and practical utility. Not only does it remain inexpensive to grow, but also businesses can make clothing, produce paper products, and extract dermal medicine oil from it. It can replace more expensive goods, substitute for traditional medicine, and provide cost-effective products.
 
Legalized marijuana supporters, who view the issue as simple economics, claim the government can tax the product to raise funds, bringing local and federal economic relief. This act would raise millions, perhaps billions, of dollars quickly for government spending, investing in social programs, repairing the nation’s roads and bridges, helping the unemployed, disabled, homeless, and poor people. Clever government leaders can quickly transform poverty, penury, and debt to wealth, affluence and solvency.

Boulder dispensary names pot strain for CNN's Sanjay Gupta

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
gupta-kush-mmjMove over Willie Nelson, there's a new strain in town.
 
Boulder's Helping Hands Herbals dispensary, 1021 Pearl St., is now carrying a variety of medical marijuana named for CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
 
The "Gupta Kush," is a strain of cannabis that Helping Hands named in honor of the renowned neurosurgeon and cable news personality after earlier this month he reversed his long-held beliefs on the subject and publicly supported exploring the medicinal benefits of marijuana.
 
Gupta wrote an editorial for Time magazine in 2009 about why he would not support medical marijuana research, but after spending the last year working on a documentary on the subject, he changed his mind.
 
"(Marijuana) doesn't have a high potential for abuse, and there are very legitimate medical applications," Gupta wrote in an article posted to CNN.com on Aug. 8. "In fact, sometimes marijuana is the only thing that works."
 
"Our take is, 'We told you,'" Helping Hands marketing director Daniel Taras said. "But for the folks that are uninitiated, having someone with (Gupta's) level of his prestige and position coming out and saying 'I support the use of medical marijuana,' really lends a lot of credibility in the mainstream consciousness."
 
Gupta, whose was previously considered for the post of U.S. surgeon general, joins a select group of celebrities and public figures with cannabis strains named after them, including President Barack Obama and rapper Snoop Dogg.
