Rhode Island For Legal Cannabis

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, November, 13th 2014 by THCFinder
rhode-island-for-legal-cannabisNew England really isn’t on the map when it comes to cannabis. Some of the states allow medical marijuana while others are still pretty short when it comes to even talking about the topic (i.e. New Hampshire governor Maggie Hassan won’t even acknowledge press when questioned about the plant). Portland, Maine has even legalized the use of the plant, letting those who live there and those who visit the chance to smoke pot legally. But the ever-so-small state of Rhode Island is on it’s way to really putting New England on the map with an initiative to legalize cannabis in the state in 2015.
 
 
Even though Portland managed to pass the legalization ballot, I’d say about 75% of stoners thought that the news headlines were talking about Portland, Oregon. I can’t tell you how many people gave me trouble for posting a photo of Maine when that measure passed, telling me “that’s not what Oregon looks like”. Portland, Maine just got a little bit confused with Portland, Oregon. Understandable but two totally different places! Rhode Island now currently allows medical marijuana and plans to open up more dispensaries over the course of 2015. 
 
 
Regulate Rhode Island is putting together a coalition of citizens as well as organizations that will make the push in 2015 to become the fifth state to fully legalize cannabis. Marijuana prohibition is on its way out and Rhode Island hopes to be one of the next states in 2015 to pass laws taxing and regulating the plant. Jared Moffat of Regulate Rhode Island, said that at least five more states will probably legalize by 2016. “Americans are fed up with wasteful and ineffective laws that punish adults for using a less harmful substance than alcohol. The results are particularly encouraging since voter turnout during a midterm election is typically smaller, older, and more conservative. Clearly, support for ending marijuana prohibition spans the political and ideological spectrums.”
 
 
With the help of social media, smaller elections are becoming an outlet for the youth to voice their opinions. Since the younger people are the ones that are more apt to support cannabis legalization, our opinions matter. Rhode Island residents are urged to push for legalization with the Regulate Rhode Island group. With the help of the internet and the support of thousands of cannabis users across the globe, this tiny New England state has high hopes for becoming one of the next states that will legalize cannabis.

Smoking Etiquette

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, November, 12th 2014 by THCFinder
smoking-etiquetteWhen smoking with a bunch of friends, there are certain rules that stoners should follow as to not appear rude or new to smoking. There are just some things that you don’t do while sharing a joint/blunt/bong with friends. Most seasoned (and every the unseasoned) smokers know these rules. They’ve been embedded in our brains after years of getting told “Don’t bogart!” or “Pass it to the left, what the hell are you thinking?” We’ve all been yelled at for making one of these mistakes at one time or another. So this list will remind you of what to do while you’re smoking in a group, just in case you got too high and forgot!
 
 
Do NOT EVER torch the bowl! 
This could be considered the worst of the rude things you could do in a smoke session! If someone packs up a fresh bowl and you happen to be the first or second hit, don’t just jam the lighter in to the weed and blast through it all in one hit. Weed is not ice cream; you don’t smoke it from the top down. Weed is like a cake. You take pieces. Corner the bowl. Torching it not only makes you look like a newbie smoker but it also is incredibly rude and wasteful, as now a new bowl needs to be packed if anyone else in the circle wants to smoke.
 
 
Don’t double hit the bong!
While a joint may be “puff puff pass”, bongs are a bit different and should only be hit once, especially in a large group. And especially if you didn’t pay for the bud! Take your hit and pass the glass. Just remember that joints are supposedly okay to hit twice but hitting the bong or bowl twice can be seen as rude if the group is large (or even a small one).
 
 
Pass to the LEFT!
No one wants to smoke in a pentagon formation, alright? Pass the smoking apparatus to the left, in a circle, rather than going from Person A to Person D to Person B to Person… You get the point. So pass whatever your smoking to the person on your left. Keep things simple, no need to create a headache of a smoking group!
 
 
Try not to drool on the smoking piece!
We all know that you can hit a piece and cough so hard, you wind up drooling. This happens. It’s accepted. But what’s not cool is when you drool in to or on the thing that you’re smoking. Don’t duck-ass the joint and don’t leave your spit covering the mouthpiece of the bong or pipe. At least drool on a napkin or something. Never leave any on the glass, that’s just gross.
 
 
Don’t pass a beat bowl!
If there’s no more weed left, most people can tell. It’ll taste bad, look bad, and smell bad. In the unfortunate case that you take the last hit, don’t pass a beat bowl to anyone. By doing this, you can definitely be seen as rude. Plus, people will think you’re a noob if you’re constantly passing kicked bowls around. Same goes for a roach. Don’t pass it if it’s impossible to grab.
 
 
Use a grinder.
Some stoners don’t like using a grinder but when you break it up with your hands, you run the risk of wasting a lot of pot. While some people will claim that the grinder is what wastes the weed, it’s actually the bigger chunks of bud that are the waste. The weed will look cashed before it’s time, leaving the inside of these larger pieces unscorched by the lighter. Use a grinder to make sure that all of the smokeable weed gets smoked.

Supplying Marijuana Grow Equipment Now Illegal In The Netherlands

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 12th 2014 by THCFinder
marijuana-grow-equipment-now-illegal-in-ne
I remember when I was a teenager growing up in the 90’s, Amsterdam (and the Netherlands in general) was the Mecca of marijuana. I always wanted to come visit there, visit their stores, and smoke their world class marijuana. While marijuana has technically been illegal in the Netherlands since that time, back then it was very loosely enforced. Things have changed quite a bit since then, with the Netherlands taking a harder stance against marijuana, while some states in the U.S. have loosened their marijuana laws.
 
It sounds like it is now illegal to even supply marijuana growing equipment in the Netherlands. Per The Stoned Society:
 
Today a majority of the Dutch Senate voted for the so-called growshop law, essentially prohibiting the supply, preparation and facilitation of illegal cannabis grows. Growshops will now have to operate more discretely if they want to continue their business.
 
It is already illegal to grow cannabis in the Netherlands, but now also supplying (even water cans and regular soil) and preparations (electrical construction for example) is illegal and punishable, depending on the size and personal vs commercial grows, by jail sentences up to 3 years.
 
Have you been the the Netherlands lately? How is the ‘cannabis scene’ there? If you have visited there in decades past, how has it changed? Is Amsterdam still considered to be the Mecca of marijuana to you?

White Widow - Hybrid

White Widow buds are covered in crystals, giving it an almost sugared look. A relatively new strain developed in the early 1990's, it has been the subject of many rap songs and was frequently mentioned in the television show Weeds. It is a very potent and powerful variety of cannabis, available on the top of all Dutch coffee shop menus. The buzz is powerful and energetic yet social, be prepared for a strong high.
