Weed Puns Take Over The News

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, August, 4th 2014 by THCFinder
weed-puns-take-over-the-news
With cannabis taking over the US (and pretty much the rest of the world), the headlines about the plant are everywhere! Every news station has at least one marijuana related story a day and some of the headlines were definitely made to make stoners laugh... Or perhaps they actually were made by stoners. Either way, enjoy this list of awesome cannabis related news headlines from the last couple of months.
 
- Case Of The Munchies
Seattle Cops Giving Stoners Bags Of Chips
At Hempfest in Seattle last year, stoners were given bags of Doritos by police officers that were present at the event. This is a perfect example of how cops should be acting, as compared to how they're acting.
 
- State Blazes New Trail, Legalizes Pot
Vote Puts Washington to the left of Netherlands on marijuana law, sets up potential fight with the Feds
This was one of the headlines that was in a Washington paper when the state passed the legal marijuana initiative that would allow those over 21 years of age to purchase and smoke marijuana legally in the state, without a doctors recommendation or any sort of card other than state issued ID.
 
- Zoinks! Marijuana Substitute More Potent Than Pot... And Legal!
Finally, people began to catch on to the awful effects of the legal weed known as "spice". This terrible plague is a legal "herb" that may or may not be lawn trimmings sprayed with chemical compounds that resemble (but are not the same) as marijuana. The effects of the product are unknown in the long run but can cause severe panic attacks, violent episodes, and even suicide in some cases. But this paper managed to play on words a bit and liven up such a dreary story with a little Scooby reference.
 
- An officer of the law managed to make and eat pot brownies and when he realized what they were, he was a little freaked out. The officer called 911 and this was what he said to the operator, "I don't know, we made brownies. And I think we're dead. Time is going by really really really slow."
 
- Weed Catches Fire; Witnesses Say A Dragon Did It
When a group of Columbian police managed to intercept some bales of bud, they turned their backs and when they weren't looking, the bales lit up and started on fire. Witnesses didn't feel like helping much though... They claimed that a blue dragon has swooped down, spit fire on the weed, lit it up, and took off. The dragon was never found.
 
- Police Jail Man After 80 Call To 911 For Kool-Aid, Hamburgers, and Weed
A good life lesson? Don't call the cops and ask for munchies. Better yet, don't call them multiple times, asking for munchies. This guy learned this lesson the hard way when he was arrested for harassing the cops, asking for the cure to his hunger. Don't be that guy. Just call Dominos.

How To Grow The OG Kush Marijuana Strain Indoors

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, July, 31st 2014 by THCFinder

OG Kush General

It’s common to hear the term “Kush” in a conversation about weed. In its base form, Kush is a pure indica strain, but OG Kush is much more of a hybrid than pure-breed. OG Kush marijuana seeds are capable of producing high-quality gardens with high-quality bud. They also have plenty of uses in the medicinal world.

OG Kush Smoking Effects

When we think of Kush, it’s common to think of a harsh smoke that really deadens the senses. This is because Kush is a pure indica strain. OG Kush, on the other hand, produces the exact opposite effect. It is able to provide you with an immediate boost of energy that makes it perfect for social engagements. It’s certainly not ideal if you are trying to get to sleep. The reason for all this is because of the increased incidence of THC on the plant. Although it is an indica-dominant hybrid, the amount of THC negates a lot of the heavy effects you’d associate with traditional Kush varieties. The distinct citrusy, sour tastes and aromas work delightfully in concert with your improved mood and energy level. Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about growing marijuana.

OG Kush Plant Features

Perhaps the single most important factor of the OG Kush plant is its ability to produce large amounts of dense buds. These buds are considerably easy to harvest, which is good for novice growers who don’t know much about harvesting. The plants themselves attain average heights of around 40 to 60 inches, although they are generally on the lower end of that spectrum.

OG Kush marijuana seeds will produce plants that take about 9 weeks to flower. The plants will exude a distinct piney aroma that will have your grow room smelling like a forest. The yields are relatively low at around 16 ounces per 10 square feet, but the 21% THC content more than makes up for it. With the OG Kush strain, you can also get seeds that are feminized and/or autoflowering to make the growing process easier for you.

OG Kush Medicinal Uses

As noted previously, the OG Kush strain has a lot of indications for medicinal use. It can help with everything from depression to appetite loss. Patients on chemotherapy have used OG Kush to lessen nausea associated with the procedures. Anorexia can also be mitigated with the use of OG Kush. Glaucoma patients have seen relief with the use of OG Kush. The strain can also be used as a general pain reliever.

New York Times To Drug Test Employees Despite Supporting Marijuana Legalization

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, July, 30th 2014 by THCFinder
nytimes-drug-testing-employeesThe media world was rocked this weekend when the New York Times Editorial Board came out in support of marijuana legalization. The New York Times is in the midst of releasing a six part series dedicated to marijuana legalization. The endorsement was welcomed by marijuana activists around the world, and got the attention of just about every media outlet on the planet by the end of the weekend.
 
While the endorsement is very much appreciated, I still find it troubling that the New York Times plans to continue to drug test its employees. Every drug test that is paid for by the New York Times financially supports companies who have led the fight to keep marijuana illegal, in addition to penalyzing prospective employees for marijuana use. Per the Huffington Post:
 
But the editorial board’s new stance doesn’t mean incoming Times employees can partake. As Gawker recently noted, the Times is one of several big media companies that require prospective hires to take a drug test. A Times spokeswoman told HuffPost that the paper’s policy for drug testing hasn’t changed, despite the editorial board’s decision.
 
“Our corporate policy on this issue reflects current law,” the spokeswoman said. “We aren’t going to get into details beyond that.”
 
Arbitrary drug testing is wrong. People should be hired based on their skill set, not on the purity of their urine. An impairment based drug testing system is much better, and is more accurate. A drug test shows that someone has consumed marijuana within the last 30 days, but does not indicate if that person was under the influence at work, or even if they are a bad worker. I have had marijuana in my system consistently for over two decades, and I’ve always been an exceptional employee, and I know I’m not alone.

Can you fail a drug test because of secondhand marijuana smoke?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, July, 30th 2014 by THCFinder
failed-drug-test-2nd-hand-smoke
Josh Gordon is appealing his failed drug test, and apparently has a pretty good case to stand on when he meets with Roger Goodell on Friday. He is not abandoning his contention that the trace amounts of THC picked up in his system were caused by secondhand smoke. That provoked an important debate in the SB Nation newsroom: can you really fail a drug test from secondhand smoke?
 
David Fucillo of SB Nation and Niners Nation (pictured below) says that you can indeed fail a drug test because of secondhand smoke because it happened to him.
 
He later revealed that it was a hair follicle test, which does have a greater level of sensitivity. So is he onto something here?
 
One problem with drug testing for marijuana is the wide variety of variables, ranging from the potency of the weed to the level of use by the testing subject.
 
The likelihood of testing positive for THC from secondhand smoke is slim. Message boards around the Internet agree that you'd have to be in a small, unventilated space with lots of smoke, a clambake if you will, to have enough THC in your system to flunk a test.

Is Alaska The Next Legal State?

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, July, 25th 2014 by THCFinder

alaska-next-weed-stateWith the pioneers in Colorado and Washington, people have really been wondering who will be next in the list of states that allow recreational marijuana. While a lot of people are pointing towards states like Oregon or perhaps California, Alaska is working diligently to bring recreational cannabis to it's citizen. And while Alaska may be a bit out of the way, that doesn't mean that they won't be a hotspot for cannabis tourism.

Alaska was actually supposed to vote on the subject next month in August but the vote has been pushed back to November. The reason for the pushback? The August election will be a state primary election while the November one will be a general election. According to history, these general elections have a greater voter turnout and it is highly anticipated that the state will pass the legal cannabis ruling.

The campaign to get people to vote for the plant is a simple one that provides what people need; information. The Alaskan Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol aims to argue that the legalization of the plant will boost the economy of Alaska, where life is tough for a lot since the state is so barren and cold, not to mention the issues that are discovered with drinking in this state. Not only that but a booming cannabis tourism industry will bring in new people, new money, and create new jobs for the people who already live there. Legal cannabis in Alaska would follow the same basic model as Colorado and Washington, where adults 21 and older would be able to purchase cannabis simply by showing their ID, much like tobacco or alcohol. This change would allow law officials to as always, deal with real problems that need attention and no longer target non-violent stoners.

Although the bill is backed strongly by numerous parties, there is always some sort of opposition. In the case of the Last Frontier State, Big Marijuana Big Mistake is a grassroots coalition dedicated to keeping the plant illegal in Alaska. The group states that this ballot would industrialize and commercialize marijuana and the other products associated with it, including edibles and concentrates. BMBM uses the fear of edibles and concentrates that has been instilled since reports started surfacing that people were dying due to over ingestion of marijuana edibles. However, both incidents of the deaths haven't been directly linked to marijuana and could have been caused by underlying problems. The group also goes on to state that corporations would take away local farmers business and cause problems with mass marketing and advertising. Unfortunately, we already live in a world that's full of media and marketing so it's unclear as to why the group would pick this as one of their main arguments.

The Wall Street Journal reports that not only does Alaska have legal cannabis in their plans but so does Oregon and the District of Colombia for this coming November. California, Vermont, and Nevada all plan to vote on cannabis legalization in 2016 and there are high expectations (haha) that the bills will pass in these states. So be sure to wish luck to those in Alaska and if you're located there, be sure that you get out and vote Yes On 2!

What To Do When Your Marijuana Grow Room Gets Hot

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, July, 25th 2014 by THCFinder

What to do when you’re marijuana grow room is very humid? The grow space will naturally be humid because the marijuana plants emanate moisture that collects in the garden space. To get rid of that moisture, the easiest thing you can do is ventilate the room and replace the moisture with drier air.

For gardens that are closed systems, a dehumidifier must be used. Dehumidifiers have cold tubing that will condense the moisture in the air and make it less humid. Of course, they do release heat and can make the grow space too hot if you’re not careful. To avoid overheating, just affix some air vent tubing to the dehumidifier’s exhaust so that the heat is pointed outside the grow space.

If the room is both hot and humid, an air conditioner could work toward removing the moisture while cooling the garden. Download my free marijuana grow bible and learn more about growing marijuana.

What to do when your marijuana room is too hot? There are plenty of ways to cool down an overheated grow room. See what suits you best:

-It can be ventilated to remove the heat.

-An air conditioner can replace the hot air with cool air.

-Prior to flowering, an air cooler that evaporates water to lower the temperature can be beneficial. These coolers won’t add too much moisture to the air and are ideal and extremely efficient during vegetative growth. They are, however, not good for plants in the flowering stage because they create too much moisture.

-If the temperature drops drastically at night, you could solve the heat issues by running the garden’s lights at night instead of the day.

-Hydroponically-grown plants can shift temperatures based on how hot or cold the water is. You can keep the plants cool even if it’s technically hot outside. If the room temperature is somewhere in the 80′s (27-30*C), try to keep the water temperature in the 60′s (15-20*C). Growers can install aquarium water coolers to keep the water cool automatically.

-Any heat producing equipment should be taken out of the grow room is at all possible (e.g. light ballasts and large pumps).

-Avoiding heat starts from the beginning. Take preventative measures to ensure that heat will not be an issue with your crop. Air- or water-cooled lights keep the lamp’s heat from entering the garden. A series of tubes takes the heat from the lamps to the outside without affecting the temperature in the grow room itself.
