Cannabis and Depression
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, November, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
Cannabis is usually linked strongly with people who have depression issues. This isn't because the cannabis is causing the anxiety, but instead from the outward factors surrounding the individuals. It is true that regular to heavy marijuana smokers are more commonly diagnosed with this disorder but it is not because they're smoking... They're smoking because they're depressed.
Depression causes a person to feel extremely isolated and alone. The individual begins to draw inward, loosing friends and family in the process. A lot of people these days suffer from depression. The stress of every day life is hard on a lot of people and it can really take a toll on someone's mental psyche. With marijuana acting as almost a wall against those negative feelings, people who suffer from depression are more apt to smoke heavily. Marijuana begins to offer the most calming escape from the emptiness that people suffer from.
The relationship between depression and marijuana is a strange one. There's no concrete evidence that says marijuana causes depression but there are some strains designed to treat it. While some users express a relief from their symptoms, there are others who say that their symptoms get worse. It seems to depend on the user and the strain that's being smoked. The reason for the heavy marijuana use by those who suffer from depression seems to be that the effects of the marijuana only last so long against the ever pressing annoyance of the illness.
When someone is constantly using marijuana and the factors surrounding them continue to be negative, the person will begin to lose their positive energy. If there aren't enough positive things in the person's life, their symptoms will continue to get worse. Smoking cannabis seems to help relieve the symptoms, if only for a short while. The more negative factors, the more a person will smoke.
More studies need to be done on the correlation of marijuana and depression. If it's not safe for those with depression, then those people should be aware. Depression can get very serious, leading to hospitalization and death. It's important to discover what's going on between these two. If you're one of these people, remember that it's good to get your feelings out in some way other than smoking. While marijuana may make you feel better temporarily, getting out and doing things will make you feel better. Exercise and social activities will help you to feel better. Smoking alone constantly will only add to the negative vibes that you're giving off.
Family Sues After Man Dies In Jail After Marijuana Possession Arrest
Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
I have always said that no one should have to go to jail for marijuana possession. There are real criminals out there that need to be locked up for violent offenses. So why are we reserving jail beds for marijuana possession? Future generations will look back on marijuana arrests one day, and they will wonder why we got it wrong for so many decades.
Everyone knows that Washington and Colorado legalized marijuana possession in 2012. What a lot of people don’t know about is that a man died in a Washington jail while serving time for a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge. Michael Saffioti, 22, had turned himself in to the jail for an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for marijuana possession in July of 2012. Michael Saffioti suffered from extreme food allergies, and died after jail staff assured him his food was OK to eat, even though it clearly wasn’t.
The jail staff are clearly to blame, but marijuana prohibition itself is also to blame. Michael Saffioti should have never been in that jail in the first place. Had Michael Saffioti been caught possessing a personal amount of marijuana today in Washington, he would have been let go. But because his arrest was before the 2012 Election, he was considered a criminal. How is that right?
Video footage has surfaced from the jail on the day that Mr. Saffioti died. You can view it here. Be advised that it’s footage of a man dying from a food allergy. It’s extremely sad and painful to watch. My prayers are with the family. I hope that they win their lawsuit for the full amount of $10 million dollars, although it will never be enough to get their family member back.

Canna-Caesar Salad Recipe
Category: Recipes | Posted on Thu, November, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
Being healthy is a huge part of the stoner's every day quest. Most stoners know that there are dangerous chemicals in most of the food that we eat and do their best to stay healthy and avoid the not-so-great food that stores are selling these days. Eating salads is one of these healthy snacks that stoners love. Here's an awesome recipe for a cannabis infused Caesar salad!
What You'll Need;
1 Clove Minced Garlic
1 Cup Croutons
2 Tblsp Marijuana Olive Oil
1/4 Tsp Of Each Salt And Pepper
4 Bacon Strips, Cooked And Crumbled (Optional)
1/4 Tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tsp Dijon Mustard
2 Tsp White Vinegar
2 Tblsp Parmesan Cheese
2 Tblsp Light Mayo
It's recommended that you make the dressing first so you can stick it in the fridge to make sure that it's cold while you put together the salad. In a bowl, mix together the olive oil, mustard, garlic, vinegar, cheese, salt and pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Make sure that you stir them together extremely well, until the substance is smooth and creamy. This is what's going to make you salad medicated so take good care. As always, you can add more marijuana to the recipe if you feel it's necessary but be sure to know your limit.
Wash your Romain thoroughly. Shred the lettuce to your desired lettuce size and put it in a bowl. Add the croutons, bacon, extra cheese if desired, and lettuce together and mix in the dressing. You've now made a delicious medicated salad. You can also add chicken or steak to this if you'd like. This is a great recipe because there's no heat involved so there's no worry of dissipating the THC in the olive oil.
