Pot Matters: Marijuana Use Up on Campus—But Binge Drinking Is Down

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, September, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

Marijuana use by college students has spiked in the last decade, a new survey shows.

Monitoring the Future (MTF), a continuing study of American youth, reports that nearly four in 10 college students—38 percent—had used marijuana in the past year. That’s up from three in 10 in 2006.

Daily and close-to-daily use—20 or more times a month—went up as well. In 2014, 5.9 percent of college students report frequent use, up from 3.5 percent in 2007.

That represents “the highest level of daily use measured in the last 34 years,” the report says.

Why There's a Push for Diversity in the Marijuana Industry

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, September, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

America’s legal marijuana industry has a huge diversity problem—and it couldn’t be more ironic.

The Drug Policy Alliance estimates that less than 1% of the market to grow legal weed is owned or operated by people of color, a startling statistic considering millions of African-American and Hispanic men have been sent to prison for selling the same drug. This has been a trend since thenational war on drugs began more than 40 years ago.

Pot Matters: Pardon Tommy Chong

Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, September, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

It’s time to petition the White House to give a pardon to Tommy Chong.  Go on, click the link and do it now, then come back and read more about it.

Tommy Chong was arrested on federal charges in 2003 for selling bongs and served a nine-month prison sentence. In court, the prosecutor argued that he “used his public image to promote this crime” and that, in turn, marketed his products to children. The nine-month sentence was part of a plea agreement.

The White House has a web-feature for citizens to file petitions on subjects of interest. If they receive 100,000 signatures in 30 days, the White House will answer the petition. They won’t necessarily grant the required action, but they do take note when enough people sign the petition to get their attention. Chong’s petition raises an issue that deserves the attention of the White House and political leaders.

Nobody wants to use pesticides on their pot plants. Check out this simple method of releasing and maintaining a healthy population of ladybugs that will kill and prevent spider mites in your indoor garden.

It doesn’t matter if you grow the cannabis for yourself or for sale to dispensaries, nobody feels right inhaling even a little vapor off some chemicals after they burn in a joint or get extracted into hash oil. Ladybugs are generalist predators, meaning they feed off many pests. However, the most common pest people introduce ladybugs to kill is the dreaded spider mite. They voraciously eat spider mites and work excellently at quelling their infestations.
