The Boston Bust

The east coast is never really known for doing anything related to cannabis, good or bad. However, with Portland, ME legalizing marijuana, the east coast is finally getting put on the map. Too bad this event went the other way. On November 22, when a fire started in a three story house. When firefighters fought out the blaze, they discovered $1 million worth of cannabis plants in the basement of the home.
 
The basement of the house contained roughly 176 flowering plants, some over 4 feet high. That's a lot of plants, especially on this side of the states. There are very rarely large busts in this chilly area so when one that does happen, it's a really big deal. Lt. Robert Merner, the head of the drug unit, said that this is the biggest marijuana find he's ever seen in Boston and he's been on the force for 28 years.
 
Apparently, these weren't just ordinary plants. Specially bred to never produce seeds, these plants are thought to be an extremely high end strain of cannabis. Lt. Merner stated that this particular grow could be worth up to $500 due to it's breeding and potency. There were supposed to be two residents in the home but there haven't been any arrests as of yet.

Chocolope - Hybrid

With Chocolope, DNA Genetics continues their project of creating tasty short-flowering sativas and reviving the classic features of old school Thai stick. The strain's father, Cannalope, is a sativa line backcrossed for fast finishing. DNA refined this feature still further, then crossed a Cannalope male with an Original Chocolate Thai female. Tasting is believing: the result retains the special flavors and effects of the OG Chocolate Thai, and lives up to the nickname Chocolope in flavor as well as genetics. It brings back a chocolate edge that was more common among good weed of the 1980s, mixed with the fruity sweetness of the Cannalope.

2014 To Be A Green Year

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, December, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
2014-cannabisColorado and Washington have pioneered the way for states looking to legalize marijuana and basically tell the Feds to screw off (even though the Feds don't actually listen). Now, as the ball starts to get rolling, other states are paying close attention to what these two states are pocketing. In Colorado, Amendment 64 was said to be able to save the state $12 million a year in reduced criminal costs, as well as generate $32 million in revenue. Washington projects even higher numbers, as they took cannabis tourism in to account. The revenue projected for Washington is $530 million. With that much green involved, who wouldn't want to keep an eye on what's happening?
 
There are numerous states who are working on passing medical marijuana, decriminalizing the plant, and some are simply trying to get the current laws to ease up. After all, being jobless for years because you got caught with a roach doesn't really seem fair or productive to the economy, right? It's the western states, such as Ohio and Illinois that are hating on cannabis, where in Ohio, there was a House Bill introduced that completely repealed medical marijuana.
 
On the other hand, there are other companies that are getting in on marijuana industry while it's still young. Most people are familiar with the banks and their disregard for cannabis based revenue but in Washington, Bank Of America has said flat out that they will take money from the sale of marijuana. This is definitely a smart move on the part of the bank, who stands to make a good deal of money once the sales of legal cannabis take off in 2014.
 
2014 will probably bring the legalization of cannabis in at least one country; Uruguay. President Jose Mujica has made his stance on marijuana very clear and believes that by legalizing it, the crime rate in his country will drop, His country is set to vote on the passing of the measure that will establish a regulatory group as well as controls to for the legal use and sale of cannabis is Uruguay. This country is the first to be developing a model for full cannabis legalization. Let's keep our fingers crossed that other countries will do the same! Even if no one legalizes in 2014, we're sure to see more states giving way to leaner laws regarding our favorite plant.

Cannabis Can Successfully Treat Epilepsy In Children, Says New Study

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, December, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-childrenA new study published in this month’s issue of the journal Epilepsy Behavior has found that many parents with epileptic children are turning to cannabis-based medicines to treat their seizures, and in a large majority of instances, it’s successful in doing so.
 
“Severe childhood epilepsies are characterized by frequent seizures, neurodevelopmental delays, and impaired quality of life. In these treatment-resistant epilepsies, families often seek alternative treatments”, begins the study’s abstract. “This survey explored the use of cannabidiol-enriched cannabis in children with treatment-resistant epilepsy.”
 
For the study, researchers at the Department of Neurology at Stanford University examined 19 parents who have epileptic children, and who use cannabis-based medicines (such as tinctures and oils) to treat their child’s seizures. The average number of antiepileptic drugs tried before using cannabis was 12.
 
Researchers found that; “Sixteen (84%) of the 19 parents reported a reduction in their child’s seizure frequency while taking cannabidiol-enriched cannabis. Of these, two (11%) reported complete seizure freedom, eight (42%) reported a greater than 80% reduction in seizure frequency, and six (32%) reported a 25-60% seizure reduction.”
 
In addition, they found that; “Other beneficial effects included increased alertness, better mood, and improved sleep.” The only reported side effects were “drowsiness and fatigue”.
 
With this data, researchers conclude that “parents are using cannabidiol-enriched cannabis as a treatment for their children with treatment-resistant epilepsy”.
 
Recently the U.S. Federal Drug Administration gave approval to several studies intending to test the effectiveness of cannabis-based medicines on the treat of epilepsy in children.
