The Conservative Christian Case For Pot Legalization

Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, May, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

Feed the hungry, heal the sick—and free the weed.

There’s a Bible verse for every situation and a teaching of Jesus interpreted to justify just about anything, however tortured. But as Buzzfeed recently reported, more and more conservative Christians in the Deep South—exactly the kind of people in exactly the kind of place where lawmakers and law-enforcement types have relied on popular support for the “morals” of the drug war—are discovering that church and legalization can co-exist. 

More specifically, they’re discovering that if you’re a true Christian—no fallacies here—the only proper course of action is to agitate for legal medical marijuana. And in the Bible Belt, that means using the Bible to do it.

Lydia Decker is a 49-year-old “nondenominational” but nonetheless staunchly conservative Christian living in West Texas, the place where (for some people, anyway) a border wall makes sense. The front lines of the drug war, in other words.

Demand for Marijuana Trumps Ice Cream

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, May, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

If the United States government would simply allow marijuana to be taxed and regulated in a manner similar to alcohol and tobacco, the population would likely purchase more legal cannabis products than ice cream, according to the 2017 Marijuana Business Factbook.

There is some serious demand for marijuana in the Land of the Free.

Some of the latest data indicates that the need for pot, if you include the underground dealings of the black market, is somewhere around $50 billion. This means there is probably already more people buying weed than ice cream, considering the market for the frozen treat only rakes in a little over $5 billion per year.

To put this situation in perspective, Forbes points out that the sale of legal marijuana alone is blowing away several other lucrative pieces of North American commerce, including national movie ticket sales and snacks, like Doritos and Cheetos.

Everything you need to know about vaping marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, May, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

Joints. Bongs. Pipes. Matches. Lighters. Forget about ’em. Let’s vape instead.

Vaporizers have become the ubiquitous gadget for the modern-day cannabis enthusiast.

What is vaporization? Simply, it is a method of activating raw plant matter without combustion. In other words, get high without fire. You inhale vapor, not smoke.

For most cannabis enthusiasts — especially beginners — vaporizers allow for a milder, easier-to-control high compared to smoking. Added bonus: No smoke!

Vaporizers have been around for decades, but the trend has take off in the last decade or so. As the benefits of vaporization have become known, the variety of devices has been increasing.

Home Testing for THC Potency Is a Viable Option

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, May, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

As anyone with even rudimentary experience using cannabis can tell you, potency can vary. A lot. Sometimes that can be half the fun—learning just what effects a new strain will have and how strongly you’ll experience them.

But if you’re a medical marijuana patient, cannabinoid potency can be a very important factor in your therapy. Cannabis from a MMJ dispensary, if you have access to one, will often be laboratory tested. The results from these analyses can help guide a patient in selecting a strain with the right cannabinoid potency and ratio to give the desired effect.

If you’re growing your own herb, or getting it from a source that hasn’t tested it, there are options available for you to determine its potency. If you live in a state that has legal weed, there may be a commercial lab near you that performs potency, contamination and other tests on samples you provide to them. But lab tests can be costly, running about $40 or more for each potency analysis.

Here's Why Puerto Rico Is the Newest Hot Pot Travel Spot

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, May, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

For many people, Puerto Rico, nicknamed, “The Island of Enchantment,” brings to mind images of sunny beaches, surf and the beauty of El Yunque—the only tropical rainforest in the United States National Parks system. You’re probably not thinking about weed.

One might assume all the good ganja in the Caribbean is in Jamaica, but that would be a mistake. Puerto Ricans love their marijuana, and it doesn’t seem hard to find good bud at decent prices, at least in San Juan.

Puerto Ricans enjoy weed so much that their 4/20 celebrations, events and political rallies spanned four days this year. From the west side of the island to the capital, residents came out en masse to enjoy, educate and fight for access to everyone’s favorite plant. Some of us in the States could use their energy and dedication to the cause as an inspiration.

A Sumptuous Seattle 420 Dining Experience

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, May, 9th 2017 by THCFinder

Since the legalization of cannabis in 2015, entertaining in Washington State has rapidly evolved to include cannabis inspired events.  Due to prohibition of public consumption, people have found unique ways to partake of cannabis legally.  Private, in-home parties lightly skirt the law so guests can use their favorite cannabis products.

I launched Ettalew’s Edibles in 2009 and have been present for the evolution of cannabis from medical to legal. Having witnessed the landscape change from something one consumed in private, to outdoor festivals with public consumption, I have eagerly anticipated cannabis dinner parties, where curators of food and beverage carefully match spices, flavors, and textures with terpenes and cannabinoids to create a mind-blowing experience.

One such dinner was coordinated by a team comprised of Derek Simcik, executive chef of Scout at the Thompson Hotel Seattle, Silas Manlove, beverage manager of the Thompson Hotel Seattle, and from Lux Pot Shop, owner AC Franks and product buyer Shea Hynes. While these gentlemen were the sommeliers of food, beverage, and cannabis, the staff at the dispensary and the restaurant provided amazing support that enabled the evening to run smoothly, with great attention to detail.
