Colorado Marijuana Industry Gets $1 Million From Investor Group: It's 'The Next Great American Industry'

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
co-investors-pushing-millions-into-cannabisInvestors looking for high returns took to Colorado this week and poured more than $1 million into the burgeoning legalized recreational marijuana industry in the state.
 
In Denver, more than 60 investors from The ArcView Group met with 22 startup marijuana companies -- including several directly involved in marijuana sales or cultivation, which was a first for the investment group -- seeking capital. By the end of the meetings, the investors committed "well over $1 million" to Colorado marijuana companies, ArcView CEO Troy Dayton told The Denver Post.
 
And it may have been even more, however, due to Colorado's marijuana laws which requires investors to qualify as state residents for three years before making equity investments in a marijuana business, some investors had to cap their deal pens.
 
ArcView president Steve DeAngelo told Bloomberg Businessweek that more than 90 percent of ArcView's investors at the meeting came from out of state -- meaning the overwhelming majority of them could not invest.
 
“Colorado has an opportunity to claim a—if not the—leading role in the cannabis industry, if it’s properly financed,” DeAngelo said. “It’s an opportunity to build the first big companies and the first big brands. But it’s going to be difficult for them to do that if they’re unable to get the financing that’s available to every other industry.”
 
Cannabis business is "the next great American industry," ArcView CEO Dayton said when opening the investment meeting this week and despite the red tape that kept many investors from jumping in, it still certainly seems to be off to a strong start. It has only been about a month since Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the Department of Justice would let the new legal marijuana laws in Colorado and Washington go into effect.

What do you think about the D.A.R.E program?

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, September, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
dare-to-tell-the-truth-about-marijuanaMost of us remember being in the lower grades and having to take D.A.R.E. To be completely honest, I don't remember what they actually taught us. I know that it was about drugs and how they would ruin our lives if we ever tried them. I've heard that in some classes, the cops brought in actual drugs to show the kids. They didn't show us drugs in ours. I don't remember them ever mentioning individual drugs to be completely honest. I was in fifth grade when I went through the D.A.R.E. program so either I wasn't paying attention or I partied the memories away when I was in college.
 
D.A.R.E. stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education. Their mission statement is to help kids lead substance free, violence free lives. Since we live in an unfortunately violent world, protecting us from violence when we're children only gives us the inability to combat it when we are older. Fortunately, we have substances (marijuana) that we can use to at least make certain life issues a bit more bearable. 
 
In my opinion, the D.A.R.E. program introduces kids to drugs at a younger age. Not only that, but it should be parents speaking to their kids about the dangers of the worlds. Schools these days resemble jails more so than educational institutions. At least information from the parents might be a bit more honest. I don't know what D.A.R.E. is like now. Like I said, I don't remember my specific program being very in depth. I think it was more about teaching us how to fight someone if we were ever attacked but again, growing up with two parents who are heavily in to fitness, martial arts, and law enforcement taught me that long before the police officer did by showing us a diagram on a piece of paper.
 
Teaching kids about drugs, alcohol, and violence is definitely an important part of their growing up. However, there is a right way and a wrong way to do it and I believe that D.A.R.E is the wrong way. While they do present some facts to the kids in the classes, I do feel that they are biased because (obviously) they're cops. It's their job to tell you that pot is bad because they have to arrest you for it anyway. Someone very close to me is a police officer and he told me that he fully supports the legalization of marijuana and would rather deal with a high person rather than a drunk person. When police officers start backing an illegal substance rather than the legal one, I'd say it's time for change. Wouldn't you?

National Cancer Institute: Cannabis Has Antitumor Capabilities, Is An Appetite Stimulant And Painkiller

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, September, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-has-antituor-capabilitiesIn claims that are in vast contrast to those of the Drug Enforcement Administrationand other government entities, the government-funded National Cancer Institute has a report published on its website which proclaims several benefits of cannabis and cannabinoids, citing numerous scientific studies to back their claims. The page was updated last month.
 
The report starts by explaining what cannabinoids are;”Cannabinoids are a group of 21-carbon-containing terpenophenolic compounds produced uniquely by Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica species”, the report continues, “These plant-derived compounds may be referred to as phytocannabinoids. Although delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the primary psychoactive ingredient, other known compounds with biologic activity are cannabinol, cannabidiol (CBD), cannabichromene, cannabigerol, tetrahydrocannabivarin, and delta-8-THC. CBD, in particular, is thought to have significant analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity without the psychoactive effect (high) of delta-9-THC.”
 
The report then goes on to talk about the potential antitumor capabilities of cannabis and cannabinoids.
 
“One study in mice and rats suggested that cannabinoids may have a protective effect against the development of certain types of tumors.” They continue; “Cannabinoids may cause antitumor effects by various mechanisms, including induction of cell death, inhibition of cell growth, and inhibition of tumor angiogenesis invasion and metastasis. One review summarizes the molecular mechanisms of action of cannabinoids as antitumor agents. Cannabinoids appear to kill tumor cells but do not affect their nontransformed counterparts and may even protect them from cell death.”
 
The NCI clearly doesn’t agree with the government’s stance that cannabis has “no accepted medical value”.
 
According to the report; “An in vitro study of the effect of CBD on programmed cell death in breast cancer cell lines found that CBD induced programmed cell death, independent of the CB1, CB2, or vanilloid receptors. CBD inhibited the survival of both estrogen receptor-positive and estrogen receptor-negative breast cancercell lines, inducing apoptosis in a concentration-dependent manner while having little effect on nontumorigenic, mammary cells.”
 
In addition, the report states, “both plant-derived and endogenous cannabinoids have been studied for anti-inflammatory effects.”
