Venom OG - Indica

While the buds that come from Venom OG are not particularly dense, they are chock-full of potent trichomes. Venom OG has exotic flavors of Kush, orange and freshly upturned soil, giving it quite a delicious flavor combination. The smell is of Kush and citrus. One of the things Venom OG has become most notorious for is its ability to cause couch lock in even the most seasoned of smokers. Venom OG was created by using a Rare Dankness #1 male to pollinate a Poison OG female that the breeder took over a year in selecting.

VA parents push for access to medical marijuana for kids

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -
Some Virginia parents are making the heartbreaking decision to split up the family, so their sick child can get access to medical marijuana. 
 
It may sound unorthodox, but these families say they are desperate and it's the only treatment making a difference. 
Three little Virginia girls, Haley, Jennifer, and Lucy, share three different stories of families in the fight of their life. Haley is a curious 13-year-old, who shakes uncontrollably through the night. She had more than 800 major seizures last year alone. 
 
"I'll get compliments, or when we go out in public they'll think, 'well you keep her nice' or 'she seems so happy.'  Well, it's like, 'You don't see her in this state,'" said Lisa Smith, Haley's mother. 
 
The Smith family lives in the Northern Neck.  Haley started having seizures at 5-months-old.  She has Dravet syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy with no clear treatment.  Haley functions at the level of a 3 to 5-year-old.  She's been through 21 different medications. 
 
"These are life threatening seizures and one day one of them will take her life," said Smith. 
 
Jennifer Collins, 14, has a different form of epilepsy, and she's been through 13 different drugs. Some of them aren't even approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
 
"We have no other options in terms of existing medications. One of them she's on now is clearly experimental," said Jennifer's father, Patrick Collins. 
 
The side effects of her pharmaceutical drugs leave her fighting, "depression, suicidal thoughts, waking cognitive issues, anger, hair loss," said her mother, Beth Collins.
 
These symptoms from legally prescribed medication can be just as bad as her 300 seizures each day. She was falling behind in school. 
 
"She's going to go one of two ways," her father said. "If we stick with where we are now, she'll never be the person that she could be." 
 
The Collins' made the painful decision to split up the family.  Patrick and his other daughter stayed behind in Fairfax.  Beth and Jennifer moved 1,700 miles away to Colorado, where medical marijuana is legal. 
 
"It was terrible.  It was terrible," Patrick said, choking back tears.

Marijuana usage won't disqualify U.S. vets for healthcare

Category: News | Posted on Fri, May, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
war-vets-and-cannabisDENVER — War veterans in Colorado seeking relief in the form of legal marijuana will not face any resistance from the Veterans Administration Eastern Colorado Healthcare System, a spokesperson confirmed on Wednesday.
 
“Use of state-approved marijuana does not disqualify a veteran for healthcare, and it will not result in any sort of retaliation or denial of services,” VA spokesperson Dan Warvi said in an interview with FOX31 Denver.
 
Warvi’s statement squashed long-running speculation that veteran’s might have their federal health plans revoked if any marijuana was found in their system, considering the drug is still illegal at a federal level.
 
Trying to dissuade those fears, Warvi urged vets that VA doctors in fact want them to disclose any marijuana usage, as some prescribed medications can react violently with THC, the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.
 
“We want to sit down with veterans and say, ‘Look, you told us you’re on this. What can we do for you now? We want to help you get better.’” Warvi said.
 
That was apparently big news for a growing number of veterans, who say marijuana can ease the pain of injuries and post traumatic stress disorder.
 
On Thursday, a day after Warvi’s interview with FOX31 Denver, Roger Martin said he got an avalanche of interest in his nonprofit, Grow4Vets, which offers free marijuana to veterans, along with equipment to grow marijuana plants.
 
Martin started Grow4Vets to offer a way to get around medical marijuana requirements that have restricted veterans in the past. He called Warvi’s statement on Wednesday a “watershed moment.”
 
“To have someone from the VA tell veterans in Colorado that they’re not going to lose their benefits if they use medical marijuana, it was huge,” Martin said. “We had over 300 veterans contact us by email and sign up online for our program after they heard your interview with the VA.”

Football Hall Of Famer Applies For Medical Marijuana Dispensary License

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Fri, May, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
hall-of-famer-applies-for-mj-dispensary-licenseJonathan Ogden, retired Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle, has applied for a medical marijuana dispensary license in Nevada, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. There are a limited number of licenses available in Nevada, so it is still unclear whether or not Ogden will own a dispensary.
 
One hundred and nine other companies have filed applications, and only 66 will be licensed this year, 40 of which will reside in Las Vegas (Clark county) where Ogden has applied. Applicants must also show they have $250,000 in liquid assets and have a licensed physician as the medical director to apply.
 
Hopefully, the NFL will feel the pressure of having Hall of Fame leaders like Ogden publicly support medical marijuana. The NFL’s stance on medical marijuana hasn’t evolved to the same extent as that of the nation at large, and the organization still imposes strict laws on players via steep fines and suspensions. However, with the NBA and NCAA rethinking their marijuana-use policies, perhaps, the NFL will move in the direction of acceptance.
