U.S. Government Funding $1.86 Million Study In Attempt to Link Cannabis To Domestic Violence

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-makes-people-happyThe National Institute on Drug Abuse is funding a nearly $2 million study in an attempt to find a link between cannabis consumption, and domestic violence: We have little doubt that it’s going to backfire, and conclude that cannabis reduces violence among partners.
 
For the study, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is granting the University of Buffalo$1.86 million to conduct 4 years of research; the study will be titled Proximal Effects of Marijuana in Understanding Intimate Partner Violence.
 
According to a university press release; “[Maria Testa, Ph.D, lead researcher for the study] says that despite the commonly held belief that marijuana suppresses aggression, many studies have found a positive association between marijuana use and intimate-partner violence.”
 
This statement has no legitimate science to back it up; in fact, a recent study published in the journal Neuropharmacology has found that cannabis reduces aggression (as well as improves social interactions).
 
All-in-all, this study – at least to us – is an indication of how desperate prohibitionists are becoming, as they attempt to find any negative effect that cannabis might have, in order to use when debating against legalization.
 
We hate to say it NIDA (actually, that’s a lie, we enjoy saying it), but you’re never going to be able to legitimately use the argument that cannabis causes domestic violence.

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.
