Marijuana Infused Frozen Pizza Is Every Lazy Stoners Dream Come True

Each six-inch pie is laced with 250 mg of THC
 
Earlier this year, a pizzeria in Vancouver began offering pies with pot baked into them. Genius, yes, but what about the people who want to enjoy special pizza without having to leave their homes? What about them?
 
This is where frozen weed-laced pizzas come in. Los Angeles-based company Stoned Oven Gourmet Medibles is now peddling what it calls Stoned Oven Gourmet Pizzas, LA Weekly reports. Started by 24-year-old “ganja entrepreneur” Henry Mark, the company sells these six-inch personal pizzas — which contain 250 mg of ethanol-extracted THC — to dispensaries scattered around LA for $10 each.
 
“You cannot taste one bit of marijuana in there,” Mark tells LA Weekly. “This pizza is really dangerous, because you can trick anyone!” (We do not recommend using these pizzas to trick anyone.)
 
Mark’s advice is to eat a quarter of the pizza, drink some water, wait for a half hour and then assess the situation. Might be a good idea to have some marijuana-free frozen pizzas on hand too, so you can tend to your munchies without getting even higher. Your call.

People are auditioning for a new marijuana reality show. Its called "The Marijuana Show"

Nearly every industry has a reality show dedicated to it.  Shipping stuff? Yes. Dog whispering? Check. Bounty hunters named Dog? Of course. Now, prospective legal marijuana tycoons can get in on the action.
 
As Fox 31 Denver reported, 200 people showed up Saturday in Denver to audition for a new, Web-based marijuana reality show named “The Marijuana Show.” (No pot puns here, folks.)
 
Here’s how it works: People pitch their marijuana business ideas to investors, who will back projects by investing $25,000 to $1 million or more, co-creator Wendy Robbins told the Fox affiliate.
 
In their online pitch, show co-creators Karen Paull and Robbins describe their project as “The Shark Tank” meets “The Apprentice,” but emphasize it’ll be more like a dolphin tank rather than shark tank. They also have a higher vision in mind: to combat negative connotations around marijuana use. “It’s really an important and potent herb and medicine and it needs to be legal,” Robbins told Fox 31. “That’s why we are doing this.”
 
“We’re the puff the magic dragon of reality pitch shows. Basically, we don’t wanna be rude,” Robbins told 303 Magazine. “It’s really about educating, and us getting educated too, the world about the whole industry.”
 
On Saturday, people pitched ideas to a panel, which will then choose six winners to head to a boot camp in New Mexico. From there, the contestants will prepare for October, when they will pitch investors back in Denver, the Fox affiliate reported. Audition pitches ranged from movie projects to a woman who wants to use cannabis in her flower shop designs, and the show will air online in November, CNN reported.

Survey: 58 Percent Of Americans Say Treat Marijuana Like Alcohol

Nearly 60 percent of Americans support regulating cannabis in a manner similar to alcohol, according to an analysis of over 450,000 online responses collected by the online polling data company CivicScience over a nearly two-year period.
 
Fifty-eight percent of respondents said that they would support “a law in [their] state that would legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana like alcohol?” Thirty-five percent of respondents said that they would oppose such a change in law.
 
An analysis of responses provided within the past three months found even stronger support for legalization, with 61 percent of those polled endorsing marijuana law reform.
 
Democrats, men, and those respondents between the ages of 25 to 34 were most likely to support regulating cannabis.
 
Though the CivicScience survey is not a scientific poll, its findings are similar to those previously reported by Gallup in 2013. In that poll, 58 percent of respondents similarly backed legalizing marijuana. More recently, in April, national polling data published by the Pew Research Center reported that 54 percent of Americans support legalizing the plant.

Police chief: Legalize marijuana, use tax revenue to fund drug treatment

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, September, 15th 2014 by THCFinder
legalize-mj-says-police-chiefMadison Police Chief Mike Koval endorsed the legalization of marijuana last week, saying the drug should be regulated and taxed, with revenues used to fund treatment programs for harder drugs.
 
The comments came during an interview with the State Journal Wednesday about data showing African-Americans in Madison were arrested or cited for marijuana offenses at about 12 times the rate of whites in the city.
 
Koval called efforts to enforce laws against marijuana an “abject failure,” and said the same about the broader war on drugs. “We’ve done such an abysmal job using marijuana as a centerpiece of drug enforcement, that it’s time to reorder and triage the necessities of what’s more important now,” Koval said.
 
Referring to the states of Washington and Colorado, which have legalized the drug for recreational use and sell it at state-regulated stores, he said it was time for Wisconsin to consider doing the same.
 
Koval said he would like to see the state “acknowledge the failure” of marijuana prohibition and instead focus on the “infinite amount of challenges” posed by drugs such as heroin. Taxes from the legal sale of marijuana, he said, would create state revenue that could then be used to fund drug treatment and expand the capacity of drug court programs that divert addicts from the criminal justice system.
 
Once relegated to the fringe of the political spectrum, proponents of marijuana legalization have seen their numbers swell in recent years. Along with Washington and Colorado, 23 states have legalized marijuana for medical use.
 
The cause has not advanced

How To Get Rid Of Pests And Bugs On Marijuana Plants

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, September, 10th 2014 by THCFinder

Cannabis or marijuana, is a flowering plant growing up to 13′ tall and are either male or female.  Cannabis is an annual plant, meaning it grows from April through September. Marijuana grows well in warm climates.  It is the female plant that produces flowers.  Flowering is best achieved in the cannabis plant when it receives equal amounts of light and darkness.  Marijuana can be grown indoors in ‘grow rooms’ under artificial light, or outdoors in natural light conditions.  They require little fertilization other than nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium and sulfur.

As a flowering plant, cannabis is susceptible to pests just as any other garden flora.  It is not recommended to use pesticides on marijuana plants, not only for environmental purposes, but due to the harm that can be caused to humans once ingested or inhaled.  If you are not willing to apply organic treatments or deterrents to control pests, use only those pesticides marked ‘safe to use on food crops’, as cannabis is considered such due to its end use. Make sure to download my free grow guide and learn what pests are harmful for marijuana plants and how to fight them. Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about getting rid of pests and bugs on your marijuana plants.

Most pests affecting cannabis growth are insects, while slugs, rodents, birds and mammals can be attracted to the plants during certain growth periods.  Over three hundred types of insects have been noted on marijuana plants, however very few actually cause crop damage.  In fact, cannabis is known to be pest tolerant; nevertheless, no life on this earth is immune to pests and/or disease.  We will examine the detrimental pests and what you can do send them on their buggy way later in this book.  First we will offer some advice on overall protection you can provide through simple measures taken at the time of first planting your crop.

There are some techniques you can apply when planting your garden that will naturally resist many types of pests through Mother Nature’s implementation of cause and effect.  These tips should be utilized to save you time and trouble in combating uninvited guests into your cannabis crop, or any garden for that matter.  Since pests rarely occur indoors naturally but are carried in from the outside, our discussion will concentrate on marijuana grown outdoors and the possible threats you may encounter.

When preparing the soil for planting, mix organic compost with the existing soil.  This will create heat at the root system, promoting growth and will provide a home for worms which work hard to make the soil nutrient rich.  Let the amended soil conjoin for a few weeks before introducing plants or seedlings, so as to avoid ‘burning’ the plants.  Once in place, cover the newly planted area with a three to four inch layer of mulch.  This promotes water retention and gives frogs and toads a hidey-hole haven to call home during the day.  At night, these beneficial reptiles will emerge to feast on nocturnal bugs.  By implementing this procedure at the outset, you will spend less time watering and have a built-in pest patrol.

Another natural pest deterrent is to intersperse marigolds throughout the cannabis crop.  Many pests are naturally repelled by marigolds.  They require little care which saves time in the long run.  Marigolds give off a pungent smell which repels many insects normally attracted to flowering plants and vegetables.  Flying insects, beetles, spider mites and even rabbits do not like the smell and will steer clear of your crop.  Additionally, marigold roots release a chemical called alpha-terthienyl which damages and repels nematodes.  Nematodes can cause severe crop-loss.

Companion planting, meaning adding plants with like growth patterns and nutritional needs, will not only help to disguise your crop, but will encourage beneficial insects to help combat those that serve as a detriment.

These preventative planting tips will aid in avoiding damaging pests, but will not totally keep your cannabis garden from harm.  We will now look at which critters are more likely to invade your crop in order of severity, and offer natural or organic methods you can implement in order to save your plants.

If you want to start growing, download my free grow guide and order some marijuana seeds. All top quality marijuana seeds are available in my marijuana seed shop. We ship seeds to the US, CA and many other countries. For any growing related question please visit the marijuana support page.

The N.F.L.s Absurd Marijuana Policy

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, September, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
nfl-mj-policy
LOS ANGELES — VIRTUALLY every single player in the N.F.L. has a certifiable need for medical marijuana.
 
The game we celebrate creates a life of daily pain for those who play it. Some players choose marijuana to manage this pain, which allows them to perform at a high level without sacrificing their bodies or their minds.
 
I medicated with marijuana for most of my career as a tight end from 2003 through 2008. And I needed the medication. I broke my tibia, dislocated my shoulder, separated both shoulders, tore my groin off the bone once and my hamstring off the bone twice, broke fingers and ribs, tore my medial collateral ligament, suffered brain trauma, etc. Most players have similar medical charts. And every one of them needs the medicine.
 
Standard pain management in the N.F.L. is pain pills and pregame injections. But not all players favor the pill and needle approach. In my experience, many prefer marijuana. The attitude toward weed in the locker room mirrors the attitude in America at large. It’s not a big deal. Players have been familiar with it since adolescence, and those who use it do so to offset the brutality of the game. The fact that they made it to the N.F.L. at all means that their marijuana use is under control.
 
Had marijuana become a problem for me, it would have been reflected in my job performance, and I would have been cut. I took my job seriously and would not have allowed that to happen. The point is, marijuana and excellence on the playing field are not mutually exclusive.
 
A good example is Josh Gordon, the Cleveland Browns wide receiver who led the league last year with 1,646 receiving yards, despite missing two games for testing positive for codeine (for a strep throat, he said). He was suspended again late last month for the entire season after testing positive for marijuana. (At least five others were also suspended last year and this year for marijuana, according to the magazine Mother Jones.)
 
Most players are tested once a year under the N.F.L.’s substance abuse policy, between April 20 and Aug. 9. But players who test positive for a banned drug are placed in the league’s substance abuse program, where the testing is more frequent. It is in this probationary program that players tend to falter.
 
Gordon had marijuana in his system. He broke the rules. I understand that. But this is a rule that absurdly equates marijuana with opiates, opioids and PCP. The N.F.L.’s threshold for disciplinary action for marijuana is 10 times higher than the one used by the International Olympic Committee.
