Cannabis Refugees Increase

cannabis-patients-getting-their-meds-on-their-own
For those patients who are suffering from epilepsy that aren't in legal states, getting their hands on the seizure stopping plant can be extremely difficult, not to mention illegal. Most citizens don't want to illegally obtain the substance, especially those who are using the CBD to treat epilepsy. This particular disorder calls for concentrated cannabis oil, which considerably decreases seizures and allows the brain to develop and form in a healthier way. There are more and more parents that are beginning to jump on the cannabis wagon for the treatment of their children's epilepsy, since the drugs administered by doctors can be numerous with extreme side effects.
 
Beth Collins is one of these parents, caring for her 14 year old daughter Jennifer. Jennifer was suffering from 300+ seizures a day. It was so bad that there where days that Beth literally could do nothing but pray for her daughter's condition to improve. "There were days where I just laid in bed with her and prayed," Beth said, "and watched her because I wasn't sure what would happen." Any parent witnessing their child go through such absolute pain and suffering would be apt to give medical cannabis a try, especially if it would help their child to live a normal life.
 
Jennifer and her mother are originally from Fairfax, Virginia. Unfortunately, the laws there don't allow for the life improving cannabis oil that Jennifer is using to combat her epilepsy. In order to get her medicine, Beth moved herself and her daughter from their home in Fairfax to a small two bedroom apartment in Colorado Springs. And they're not the only ones. Another mother-daughter pair moved to Colorado with Jennifer and Beth, in order to obtain this medicine, after trying so many doctor prescribed pharmaceuticals. Dara Lightle has had to watch her 9 year old daughter go through seizures, plus the added stress of extreme anger episodes, where the young girl would kick and scream at her mother, who was simply trying to help.
 
The best part? "I feel better," Jennifer says, "I can focus more and I'm doing better on tests in school. My memory's improved a lot." Not only that but Lightle and her daughter stated that they are "happy to be here (Colorado)." Even though the move can be tough, these parents are set on getting the best medicine for their children. Patients all over can only hope that the cannabis laws continue to reform, allowing the medicine in all states, instead of making people move 1700+ miles for a medicine that works.

Cannabis Causes Stink In Colorado

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, April, 15th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-causes-stink-in-co
Stoners love the smell of their marijuana. Some people love it so much that they have actually created perfumes that resemble the smell of the flowers. However, the perfumes differ from the traditional stink of marijuana, which usually resembles a skunk. This bittersweet aroma is getting people really upset, especially those who don't want to smell it. There are even some businesses, such as a small barber shop in Colorado, who are deciding to turn away customers who carry the smell of cannabis with them.
 
Hugo Corral is the owner of the barber shop and he's gone as far as to hang a sign in the window of his shop that says "Please do not come in if you smell like marijuana, there are families here who don't want to smell it. This is a business, not your home". Corral went on to tell the Guardian Daily that he feels that people who smell like weed are disrespectful, especially to the families that come in to the shop. Some customers have complained that the smell can get so bad that it seems as if someone is smoking right in the chair while they're getting a trim.
 
This situation has definitely begun to cause waves in the community, with Corral being categorized as discriminatory but because smelling like marijuana doesn't fall under race, sex, religion, or sexual orientation, and other constitutionally protected categories, those who say they feel discriminated against have almost no ground to stand on. Extremely unfortunate, seeing as how apparently this business was making money off of these weed smelling smokers and the plan to ban them may eventually effect business.
 
If people smell like marijuana, there's really no reason to bar them from entering places (unless that place is perhaps a preschool). While some people claim that the smell is "offensive" and "rude", the same could be argued for the person who is blowing out a lungful of cigarette smoke while simultaneously pushing open the door to a business. Not everybody smokes cigarettes and it can be offensive to those who don't smoke when someone passes by them, reeking like tobacco. The same could be said for alcohol. If someone is drinking and then goes to a store, the smell of booze carries with them. Alcohol could also absolutely be considered an offensive smell. While not everyone wants to smell it, it seems like these rabble-rousers only have a nose for marijuana and not the other offensive smells that people can carry with them.

Colorado Reveals Marijuana Vending Machines

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, April, 14th 2014 by THCFinder

There are more then a few memes that circulate the internet showing candy machines full of nugs. Usually the captions read something like "wishful thinking" or "someday", giving stoners everywhere the hope that one day, they'll be able to buy their buds out of a vending machine. Of course, with the legalization of cannabis in Colorado, hopes rose even further that weed would be available whenever, where ever. And recently, those dreams came true as Colorado unveiled the very first cannabis vending machine, a situation that most stoners only imagined that they would see.
 
The machine idea was released last Friday night in the town of Avon. The machines, called "ZaZZZ" will provide not just weed but edibles as well. American Green's chief operating officer, Stephen Shearing also said that the machines are great for "shy folks" who aren't really apt to walk in to a pot store and say "why yes, I'd like your finest cannabis please". Remember that there are still people who hide their pot smoking and not everyone is as open about it as others. While the machines will be convenient, it is said that they will only be able to be accessed by bud tenders, meaning that you will need the proper license and ID to use the ZaZZZ.
 
This idea is extremely soon, considering that weed has only be legal in Colorado for six months. But while the idea may seem forward, it will definitely benefit the patients who are seeking some secrecy, as well as others who know what they want and don't need to wait in line at dispensaries and shops. As of right now, the machines are being installed inside of the Avon medical marijuana dispensary and there are hopes that it will be operational by 4/20 this year. This is a great step for medical and recreational marijuana. We can only expect more innovative ideas such as this one as the cannabis industry continues to gain momentum.

Marijuana Bud & Breakfast

Legal marijuana was bound to bring in new ideas. Especially as the industry evolves, new and awesome ideas are undoubtedly going to pop up. With the introduction of the cannabis vending machines that are being installed in the state of Colorado, there is a new bed and breakfast idea that is also sure to take off as more people begin to find out about it.
 
The MaryJane Group Inc purchased a one-year lease with the owners of Adagio Bed and Breakfast. This new venture is the pilot project of a business like this and is thought to be the pioneer in the cannabis lodging industry. When someone checks in to the lodge, they will receive the package plan that will include unlimited food, drink, and of course, marijuana. The lodge will also have an onsite chef that will prepare gourmet foods for the guests that are cooking to order, as well as luxury transportation around the city of Denver.
 
The lodge and company will also help out growers that are in debt with financing as well as helping other marijuana related businesses. This is great and will hopefully shed positive light on the cannabis community, as small businesses helping other small businesses. In addition, the company states on their website that they offer cannabis related tours as well as a partnering with a marijuana friendly radio station.
 
There are other food establishments that have been working on incorporating food and weed in to one place. There is Hapa Sushi Grill & Sake Bar, which is located in both Denver and Boulder. They introduced the pairing of sushi and weed earlier this year. Although the bed & breakfast has no set open date, Joel C. Schneider, President of the company that is starting this venture, says that if successful, more of these marijuana friendly lodgings will be opened. It will be a great spot for cannabis tourism, especially those who are unfamiliar with the cannabis industry. It will hopefully be an extremely positive spotlight in the community!

Most Americans Say You Can Smoke Marijuana And Be A Responsible Adult

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, April, 11th 2014 by THCFinder
responsible-adults-can-smoke-weedOne of my biggest pet peeves is when a marijuana reform opponent automatically assumes that because someone smokes marijuana that they are some lazy loser that lives in their parents basement. Not all marijuana consumers are lazy. Not all marijuana consumers live with their parents. In fact, most marijuana consumers are hardworking, responsible adults that just happen to choose a product that is safer to consume than alcohol.
 
According to a new poll released by YouGov.com, most Americans agree with me. According to the poll, “The latest research from YouGov shows that most Americans (59%) think that it is possible to occasionally smoke marijuana and still be a responsible adult, though 28% disagree.”
 
Do you consume marijuana? Are you a responsible adult? I have always felt that people that are lazy and unproductive are that way regardless of if they smoke marijuana, or really anything else. Lazy people are lazy. Unproductive people are unproductive. Marijuana consumption doesn’t add to that or take away from it. What do readers think?
 
Stereotyping marijuana consumers as being lazy bums has been a ‘go-to’ tactic for marijuana opponents for a long time. This form of propaganda has been successful for many decades, but those days are gone. Marijuana is mainstream, and people are more educated on the topic than ever before. Marijuana opponents know it, whether they want to admit it or not.

Hydro Marijuana Growing; Better To Use A Reservoir Or Drip System?

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, April, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
hyrdo-marijuana-growingBoth systems will work well in a marijuana garden. With the reservoir system, you’ll use horticultural clay pellets or pea-sized volcanic lava in plastic pots. The containers are put in a tray that contains a water-nutrient solution that is about one quarter of the height of the container. A container that is 10 inches high will have about one inch of soaking rock. A large portion of the medium stays above the waterline. Capillary action keeps the rock moist by drawing up water. All the clay pebbles in the container remain moist as long as water says in the reservoir.
 
As soon as the water-nutrient solution is added to the tray, plain unenriched water needs to be added to keep the water level and strength of the nutrient solution at equilibrium. As water evaporates, the concentration of nutrients rises. Adding water will lower it.
 
Most of the literature suggests that roots should not be sitting in water. There are two reasons why this is occasionally true. First, the sitting water might not have dissolved oxygen. The roots utilize oxygen and will incur diseases without it. Second, some mediums are incredibly dense and take up so much water that there isn’t any air left. The roots then suffer from a lack of oxygen. In a reservoir system, large air spaces are left in between pieces of clay pebbles or lava so that there is enough air and the roots can access the oxygen more easily.

Roots that grow into the water look different than those that grow above it. They won’t have the fine network of root hairs and are denser even in water that has been depleted of oxygen. Other roots appear to supply oxygen to the roots in the water.
 
Marijuana gardeners concerned about a lack of oxygen for the water roots can infuse the water with the gas with a small air-stone attached to an air pump. The column of rising bubbles moves the water around. A larger amount of the surface area contacts the air and absorbs oxygen while releasing CO2.
 
The never ending drip system also utilizes clay pellets or pea-sized lava in containers that are sitting in a tray that drains into a reservoir below. A pump supplies a constant gentle stream of water through the tubing to each container so that a wispy stream of water is always trickling over the stones. This system is rather easy, but it still promotes vigorous growth. Keeping the drain hole blocked with the tubing that raises the drain to the desired height makes for an easy combo constant drip/reservoir system. With this, the marijuana plants are receiving a constant stream of water and the water roots are given space in the reservoir.
