A Medicinal Pot Patch For Pets Coming Soon

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, August, 25th 2011 by THCFinder
A Seattle company has developed a marijuana pain patch for use on dogs, cats and horses suffering from arthritis, cancer, and other chronic pain. The company, Medical Marijuana Delivery Systems (MMDS), acquired a patent for the patch which was developed in 2000 by Walter Cristobal of the Santa Ana Pueblo Tribe of New Mexico. According to Culture Magazine, Mr. Cristobal created a marijuana skin patch to ease his mother's arthritis discomfort and was ultimately awarded a patent.
This patch allows the trans-cutaneous (through the skin) delivery of the marijuana instead of the traditional smoking, inhaling or eating of the drug and as an alternative to traditional pain medication. The patch will be sold under the trademark Tertacan, and should be available in the United States by the end of this year. Jim Alekson, a spokesperson for MMDS, called the pot patch a "mellow alternative to traditional pharmaceutical painkillers, which have proven harmful, sometimes fatal in animals". The patch will also be available for humans.
Many state laws will have to be amended to allow the purchase of medical marijuana, to allow veterinarians to legally prescribe it, and to allow people who are legally allowed to have medical marijuana to give it to their pets.
Clearly, proper prescribing and dosing are critical, as is the case with any pain patch issued for humans and animals, and abuse can be quite serious.  Pets have had serious reactions to pot accidentally ingested or deliberately given to them as a prank. Reactions can include listlessness, uncoordinated physical movements, disorientation, incontinence and other symptoms consistent with the toxicity of an overdose. Most state laws consider illegally providing, or negligently allowing a pet access to pot a crime.
Don't try this at home yet.

Who Says Bongs & Pipes Aren't Art? High-End Smokeware in LBC

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, August, 22nd 2011 by THCFinder
Very few artists come up with art that is actually funtional, if anything that alone should be enough to showcase the skill that glass blowers must have to make some of the amazing pieces that we see today.
There's a special spot deep in the heart of the LBC that offers brilliant, intricate sculptures. While you may not be in the market for home decor, perhaps you are perusing the sprawl for new additions to your marijuana paraphernalia collection. GooseFire Gallery in Long Beach is a spot you may want to add to your checklist.
Doubling as high-end smokeware, these artistic pieces not only spice up your living space but serve as pipes and bongs.
Exhibiting around 75 pieces of "controversial glass art," GooseFire Gallery showcases the work of 15 artists, reports Press-Telegram. Though marijuana isn't for everyone, Owner Matt Abrams, 29, feels that anyone can appreciate the items as art.
"I think even people who don't enjoy the marijuana see the time and effort and the artistic elements put into these pieces," Abrams said. "You can't deny that. They look at it and go, `I don't appreciate that it's a pipe, but I do appreciate that it's a beautiful piece of work.'"
The functional artworks range in price staring at $500 to $10,000, excluding a $45,000 glass bamboo-climbing lemur. The piece consists of about seven pipes hiding among the bamboo shoots.
"There's nothing else like that out there," said Abrams of the lemur work.
Aside from practical art, Adams also dabbles in medical marijuana. His family owns One Love Long Beach, the collective across the street from the gallery. Adams serves as the managing director and handles the legal work.
While the gallery is well-received by many, others are not impressed.
"Drug paraphernalia labeled as smokeware is no more art than vomit is," Calvina Fay, Executive Director of Drug Free America Foundation. "Drugs have destroyed many lives and families and there is nothing beautiful or fascinating about it. ... Peddlers of smokeware who recklessly promote drug activity and contribute to this health problem just to make a buck, even under the guise of art, are repulsive, not artistic."
Art or vomit, L.A.?


125 Year Old Pot Smoker Claims Weed Was Her Secret To Longevity

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, August, 20th 2011 by THCFinder
A 125-year-old woman, said to be one of the oldest women in India, died at her home in Orissa, her family said Sunday. Fulla Nayak claimed that smoking cannabis every day was her secret to long life.
Fulla Nayak, a resident of Kanarpur village in the coastal district of Kendrapada, died of old age complications Saturday.
According to her 72-year-old grandson, Fulla was 125. But as per a voter photo identity card issued by the government in 1995 she was 120 years.
The grand old woman lived in a small mud-walled thatched house in Kanarpur, about 25 km from the district headquarters. She is survived by two of her four daughters and around two dozen relatives.
Her eldest daughter, Jamuna, 92, lives in the same village. Her husband died at the age of 50.
Fulla was in the news when her grandson Narayan Nayak claimed last week that she could be the oldest woman living in the world. He had said that he would write to the Guinness book authorities to record the claim.
Fulla was known for her love of smoking ganja and cigars and palm juice. She also loved steaming hot tea.
She had never suffered any debilitating ailment throughout her life. Except for her weak eyesight, Fulla maintained good health and used to walk without support.
