Is This a Secret Loophole in the NBA and NFL’s Pot Bans?

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, December, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

Steve Kerr’s tenure as Golden State Warriors head coach has been brief but extremely memorable. He won a championship in his first year, and the Warriors set an NBA record for wins in his second—and now in his third year, Kerr is making waves for his recent “admission” that he used marijuana to deal with the pain from several back surgeries.

During a conversation on changing perceptions about cannabis use among professional athletes, Kerr expressed hope that pro sports would allow marijuana to be used as a pain treatment. He also told CSN Bay Area’s Monte Pool in a podcast on Friday that he’d tried the drug a couple of times over the preceding 18 months—and it didn’t work.

“I’m not pot person. It did not agree with me. It did not agree with me at all,” said Kerr, who said that he’d tried in twice during the last “year and a half.”

New Study Maps Which Countries Are Smoking The Most Weed

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, December, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

A new study concludes that the British government should definitely legalize marijuana.

The exhaustive research, titled “The Tide Effect: How the World is Changing its Mind on Cannabis Cannabis Legalization,” brought about an alliance of British Parliament Members (from opposing parties) who all agree on the study’s logic—the current prohibitionist approach to marijuana has failed miserably.

The report, done by the the non-partisan Adam Smith Institute, stated that current drug strategy “has failed in its core aims to prevent people from using drugs, manufacturing drugs, and to put a stop to the crime, corruption and death that is taking place on an industrial scale around the world.”

Cannabis Concentrates: Why Potency Doesn’t Equate to Preference or Pleasure

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, December, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

This piece is brought to you by the founder of the Global Drug Survey, consultant psychiatrist and addiction medicine specialist, Dr. Adam R. Winstock. 

Global Drug Survey (GDS) is so happy to have partnered with HIGH TIMES for GDS2017. That the oldest, wisest and hippest of all cannabis publications has seen fit to partner with the world’s biggest drug survey is just fab. But I also worry that I better be careful what I say, since I don’t what to upset people by saying anything that might go against a tide that is turning in many places for the better.

So, I’ll start off positive. Americans use cannabis more smartly than anyone else in the world. In most countries, 80 percent of people who smoke cannabis mix it with tobacco. In the U.S., its 7 percent.

Where Marijuana Plants Flourish Under Energy-Saving LED Lights

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, November, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

TUMWATER, Wash. — Behind the covered windows of a nondescript two-story building near the Olympia Regional Airport, hundreds of marijuana plants were flowering recently in the purple haze of 40 LED lights.

It was part of a high-stakes experiment in energy conservation — an undertaking subsidized by the local electric company. With cannabis cultivation poised to become a big business in some parts of the country, power companies and government officials hope it will grow into a green industry.

The plants here, destined for sale in the form of dried flowers, joints or edible items, were just a few weeks from harvest and exuding the potent aroma of a stash room for the Grateful Dead. But the energy-efficient LED lights were the focus of attention.

The CannaSociety Soirée Takes Cannabis Parties to a Higher Level

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, November, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

Cannabis events aren’t just for warehouses anymore! The CannaSociety Soirée in Portland demonstrated how stunning a cannabis event really can be…and I was lucky enough to be invited.

As more states legalize cannabis, social consumption becomes more of a topic of discussion. In fact, Denver recently passed a social consumption ordinance just a few weeks ago. Much like a fancy dinner party or small reception at a home in the West Hills of Portland, the CannaSociety Soirée was stunning.
