Congressional Spending Bill Blocks DEA Medical Marijuana Raids

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
bill-blocks-dea-raidsWhat a wild day yesterday. As I was sitting in my cubicle reading tweets earlier in the day, it seemed that Washington D.C.’s  marijuana legalization bill was going to be entirely scrapped in a backdoor deal between Democrats and Republicans. As the day progressed, it appeared that possession and cultivation of marijuana in D.C. would move forward, but that Congress wouldn’t approve marijuana sales. Ultimately, the language that was agreed upon in the spending bill that will determine D.C.’s legalization implementation was somewhat vague. Some belief there’s wiggle room to implement legalization in some fashion, others don’t. There will no doubt be a battle over implementation, as there was with medical marijuana in D.C., so activists need to keep the pressure on as much as possible.
Something that was included in the spending bill’s language was a ban on using funds for federal medical marijuana raids and hemp enforcement. Those provisions brought praise from Tom Angell of the Marijuana Majority, who sent me the following message:
“Congressional leaders seem to have finally gotten the message that a supermajority of Americans wants states to be able to implement sensible marijuana reforms without federal interference. This legislation greatly reduces the chances that costly and senseless DEA raids will come between seriously ill patients and the doctor-recommended medicine they need for relief. Now that Congress has created political space by taking this important legislative step, there are no remaining excuses for the Obama administration not to exercise its executive power to reschedule marijuana immediately. The attorney general can begin that process today with the stroke of a pen.”
Below is the actual language regarding hemp and medical marijuana from the spending bill, also provided by the Marijuana Majority:
“Sec. 538. None of the funds made available in this Act to the Department of Justice may be used, with respect to the States of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin, to prevent such States from implementing their own State laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of medical marijuana.”
“Sec. 539. None of the funds made available by this Act may be used in contravention of section 7606 (“Legitimacy of Industrial Hemp Research”) of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (Public Law 113-79) by the Department of Justice or the Drug Enforcement Administration.”
“Section 538 prohibits the Department of Justice from preventing certain States from implementing State laws regarding the use of medical marijuana.”
“Section 539 prohibits the use of funds by the Department of Justice or the Drug Enforcement Administration in contravention of a certain section of the Agricultural Act of 2014.”
Yesterday was a bitter sweet day. Medical marijuana aids were de-funded, but Washington D.C.’s marijuana legalization is in limbo. Please contact your members of Congress and tell them to respect the will of D.C. voters. Tell them that vague language is far from good enough – we need full assurances that D.C. residents will be allowed to possess, cultivate, and gift marijuana as Initiative 71 outlined. Or even better – approve taxing and sales of marijuana.

Denver Cannabis Tours

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, December, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
denver-cannabis-toursLegal weed has hit Denver Colorado in full force and people are ready to get the tourism ball rolling. My 420 Tours has done just that. The company sprung up after legalization passed and offers tourists a five hour long ride around the city, stopping a head shop, two different dispensaries, a grow operation, and a restaurant. The price tag is steep at $150 but to get carted around in a limo smoking weed? Some people definitely deem it worthy.
Companies such as My 420 Tours offer tourists not only a round of the city to see the cannabis sites. Some of the tours even offer a bit more with a weekend package. It includes four days and three nights, staying a vaporizer friendly hotel downtown. You also get a cooking class (with cannabis of course) and a visit to the Denver Botanic Gardens for the Chihuly glass exhibit. For someone who’s never really been in to the cannabis industry, a tour like this could definitely open their eyes to how the business of weed works.
The tours usually contain information about what you should eat and what you should smoke, suggesting limits for those that are new to weed. Edibles especially are addressed, with newbie dosing suggestions available for those who don’t want to have a bad experience. Tourguides also talk about the differences between smoking, vaping, eating, and the other ways that you can get marijuana in to your system.
So is the price of the tour worth what you get? Yes. Even though there may be some points where things get boring and you may have a newbie on the bus who eats too much of a brownie, the trip is definitely fun. There’s not a lot that can compete with riding around a bus full of weed in Denver all day long. With so many companies popping up that offer tours of the newly legal state, Denver is definitely America’s Amsterdam.


How The Weed Guy Saved Christmas

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, December, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
It was a dark and snowy Christmas Eve. The roads were covered in a sheet of fluffy precipitation and the trees sagged under the weight of the flakes that just kept falling. No one was out driving, no one was outside shoveling, not even the plows were going by. On a night like this, one would definitely require the help of cannabis. But the jars were all empty, keif catchers were scraped clean, and the only thing left in the house containing THC was a small bit of resin that no one really wanted to smoke.
So the four friends sat, watching cartoons sober, wishing that someone would respond to their desperate texts to find weed. They waited and waited but no messages came. At least the power was still on for the time being. They still had their TV and music to listen to, as well as power to charge their phones that they were constantly checking in the hopes that a weed man was coming. But alas, nothing.
Minutes turned in to hours and the friends were starting to fret that their Christmas eve would be spent trapped in the house with nothing to smoke. But suddenly, a jingle chimed out over the sound of American Dad and one of the stoner friends jumped up, shouting, “He responded, he responded!” The friends crowded around the phone, grappling to see what the weed man had said. “He said he can make it!” the holder of the phone said. The friends all cheered and asked when he would arrive.
Meanwhile, the weed man was suiting up. He donned his boots, a heavy jacket, and two pairs of mittens. He placed the bag of weed inside of his jacket and made sure that it was safe. It was a big bag, so at least the trip would be worth it in the long run. If he could even make it there! The snow wasn’t showing signs of slowing and he hadn’t seen a car in hours. The weed man opened the door to the outside, looking at the blanketed world. He sighed and shut the door behind him, dragging his heavy feet through the snow around his buried car to the bike that he had posted up against the side of the house. He brushed off the bike quickly and got on, pushing the pedals extra hard as they dipped in to the snow. 
The trip was only a mile but now, it seemed much longer. He couldn’t see the road and the streetlights weren’t helping much, as they were blotted out by the driving snow. He pedaled hard, wishing that it wasn’t snowing but at the same time, enjoying the quiet of the night. It had only been snowing for three hours but at 6pm, it felt like 3 in the morning. Pedal, breathe, pedal, breathe. He kept on pushing, hiding behind the brim of his hood.
Suddenly, the front wheel of the bike slid out from under him. He tumbled off the bike, landing in a small snowy ditch on the side of the road. For a second, he didn’t get up. Was this really worth it? The trip never seemed so bad in the car. Sure, these people were his friends but really? He got up and brushed the snow off of his jacket. The bike was buried in the snow and he tried to just grab it, falling over again. He frustratedly kicked at the snow, cursing it for falling so heavily. Digging at the snow, he located the handlebars of the bike and pulled with all his might, freeing the bike. Slowly, arduously, he climbed up the side of the ditch back to the road and got back on the bike. Before pedaling away, he made sure the bag of weed was still safe inside of his jacket. Once he knew it was still there, he started pedaling again.
He pedaled for what seemed like hours. That is, until he looked up to see that he had made it to the house. He threw up his hands in silent relief and pulled the bike in to the driveway, leaning it against the side of the house. He removed his mittens and knocked on the door. After waiting for a minute, he started to get angry. Did they just stand him up? Just when he was about to walk away and begin the journey back, the door flew open. Four smiling faces were staring back at him and what was this? A cup full of cocoa, topped with whipped cream.
The weed man smiled and kicked off his boots, making his way in to the warm house. His friends crowded around him, congratulating his perilous journey. He took a sip of cocoa and pulled the big bag of weed out of his pocket. The friends cheered and one of them pulled out a bong and a grinder, offering it to the weed man. He plucked a bud from the bag and ground it up, letting the smell of weed fill the house. He packed the bong and took the first hit, letting the smoke trail out of his mouth while he handed the glass piece over.
“Thanks, dude,” one of his friends said, slapping him on the back. “You really saved this Christmas."

The Agent Orange strain of marijuana is a three way cross between Space Queen, Jack's Cleaner and Orange Velvet Skunk that delivers its wonders within just 55 and 65 days when cultivated indoors. AO is a hybrid mix of Sativa and Indica the develops very heavy buds, coated with white crystals and blazing orange hairs.

The buzz is trippy; mixing feelings of calming body stones with energetic mental lucidity.


How long would it take you to smoke all of this Cannabis?
