How You Can Help End Cannabis Prohibition

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, December, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
Let's face it, getting your voice heard is pretty difficult in such a loud world. Unless you're involved in politics, there's not a lot of people that are ready to listen to you. A lot of the people that are in power today grew up being told that cannabis was the devil's lettuce and that it made people crazy. While we're pretty sure that doesn't happen, not everyone is quite convinced. There are a lot of incredibly stubborn people in the world and convincing them that cannabis isn't bad takes a lot of patience. On an individual level, it can seem almost impossible to get involved in the industry.
Knowing how to use social media is the best way to get your voice heard. Social networking is a tool, not just something to fool around on for hours. By using social media, a person can gather likeminded people who, in turn, reach more likeminded people. It's a ripple effect but one must actually recognize what they're doing, much like a puppet master. By manipulating the channels of social media, a single idea can grow and spread until it becomes a movement. The sudden spike in cannabis enthusiasm came from somewhere... And with the amazing speed and connectivity of the internet, it could be safe to say that the web has had a large hand in getting people involved.
If you have a local NORML chapter, get involved with that. And if there isn't one around you, start one! They make it fairly easy to get a chapter going. Then you'll be at the head of a chapter and you can really work on getting cannabis to where it needs to be. Talk to people, especially family members, who are the hardest to convince of the benefits of cannabis. By educating other people, we can change their minds ever so slowly. It may take a while but in the end, every person who's mind you change counts! If, at the end of the day, you've managed to convince your marijuana-hating grandmother in to a slightly more accepting woman, then you've helped. It's the little things that really count.

Ready to Run with the Big Dawg? The Chemdawg strain is the very thing that myths are made of.

It's even responsible for several even more highly sought-after hybrids like OG Kush & NYC Diesel. To satisfy the never-ending demand for this power-packed strain, Gorilla Seeds is offering several different versions of Chemdawg including Cali Connection's Chem 91 (£67.99 for 6) and Auto Seeds brand-new Auto Chemdog (£31.99 for 5).


Where In The United States Are You Most Likely To Get Arrested For Marijuana?

getting-arrested-for-weedGetting arrested for marijuana is no joke. Marijuana arrests result in fines, and can result in jail time, loss of driving privileges,  loss of college financial aid, forfeiture of assets, and many other penalties. I’ve only been caught with marijuana one time (half ounce, 2005), but since I live in Oregon where marijuana is decriminalized I only had to pay a fine ($500). I didn’t even have to go to a courtroom. I just had to go to the window at the Clackamas County Courthouse and pay my money.
Obviously had I been caught with a half ounce in Colorado or Washington today, there would be no penalty. I hope Oregon joins those states soon. Other places are not as friendly as Colorado or Washington. In some states you could be looking at serious time for just a dime bag. My cousin in Idaho got caught with a used marijuana pipe and had to serve six months in jail for.
Where in the United States are you most likely to get arrested for marijuana? According to an ACLU report from earlier this year, Washington D.C. had the highest rate of marijuana arrests. The report calculated for population size, so this is not the total amount of marijuana arrests in an area, it’s the highest rate of marijuana arrests per 100,000 citizens. New York State was second, Nebraska was third, Maryland was fourth, and Illinois ranked fifth.
In Washington D.C. if you get caught with any amount of marijuana, even less than one gram, the penalty is six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. That’s a brutal penalty for something as harmless as possessing a dime sack of marijuana. If you live in Washington D.C. and you consume marijuana, watch out. Obviously you want to proceed with caution no matter where you live outside of Washington State and Colorado, but be extra careful if you live in D.C.


Increase In Cannabis Potency

increase-cannabis-potencyMarijuana can range from 3% THC to almost 30% THC and that's just the flowers, not including the concentrates, which are even stronger. But back in the 60s and 70s, the weed wasn't nearly as strong as it is today. Why is that? Are people craving a bigger high or do patients need the stronger medicine due to tougher illness? It's probably a mixture of both at this point, as most Americans want cannabis to be legalized.
Stoners want to get high. That's obvious. For some people, the higher the better. Getting stoned is the only way that other people can go about their day. The potency of cannabis largely dictates it price and the demand for it in dispensaries, as well as with street dealers. Even concentrates are used recreationally, even though the high they produce is so intense. Some people just have an extremely high tolerance to THC, no pun intended.
On the other hand, stronger medicine means more relief for patients. Since there is now medical evidence to support the benefits of cannabis, patients can use it as a medicine. As with pills and the like, there are different ratings of the amount that you're taking. Same with marijuana. The THC percentage depends on how much pain or discomfort the patient feels. With higher THC percentages, the patients can feel more relief, letting them lead much more normal lives.
Seeing as how a THC overdose isn't possible, higher percentages of THC in the bud won't harm you. But it will make you extremely high. Always be sure to know how the different amounts of THC effect you before getting too stoned off of a strain with a higher percentage. Patients and recreational smokers alike can agree that there's nothing wrong with a stronger, longer lasting high. There are even growers who base their entire crop off of getting a stronger bud. So whether it's for fun or for medical, enjoy!


Cannabis Energy Drinks

Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, December, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
In a fast paced world where everyone is always in a hurry, energy drinks are a billion dollar industry. Red Bull makes so much money that they managed to help a guy free fall from the edge of space to earth. That's got to cost a pretty penny! But let's face it, energy drinks are good if you can manage to drink them in moderation. By getting a small pick-me-up like an energy drink, some people can get through their days a lot easier. But a cannabis energy drink seems to be a slight oxymoron, considering most stoners prefer the much less potent coffee or even tea. So what's the deal with cannabis energy drinks?
First off, they do contain hemp seed extract. However, since it's not a psychoactive substance and there is a small enough amount that the drink is legal. It is true that the DEA put an embargo on all food based on hemp as well as oils. But that decision was reversed in 2004. If a product contains hempseed extract, must have a THC count of 10 parts per billion or less. Since the cannabis energy drink contains less, the drink is legal (although not sold) in all states. The hempseed extract, although minute in the amount, does provide health benefits for the body and can make one feel replenished, awake, and focused.
Energy drinks do contain caffeine so it's important to be careful not to drink too many of them if you're trying to avoid getting sick. While cannabis won't cause an overdose, caffeine sure can. But when consumed in moderation, an energy drink containing natural ingredients (the cannabis energy drink is lactose free, dairy free, gluten free, and safe for vegetarians as well. This makes the specific drink much healthier than it's competitors, which pack their drinks as full as they can with absurd ingredients that do who knows what to the insides of a human stomach.
Unfortunately, the drink won't get you stoned but is probably a better choice than drinking one of the other drinks on the market. While not giving users the effects that one would expect, you're getting more benefits from a cannabis energy drink than one of the other ones. It's something worth trying if you see it around and feel like trying something new! And if not, you can always stick to the good old weed tea instead!


Stoner's Rights When Dealing With Cops

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, December, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
Getting pulled over happens way more than we would like it to. It seems as if even the smallest infraction these days merits those flashing blue lights. What do you do if you're smoking or have recently smoked and the cop smells it or suspects it? How do you handle that situation? It's a lot easier than people think, as long as you possess some small amount of self control.
1. Don't be a smart ass and mouth off. If you act respectful to them in the first place, they're not going to have any reason to mess with you. By being polite, you can pretty much avoid any sort of confrontation, even if your car does smell of cannabis.
2. Agreeing to let them search you is totally unnecessary. If you have anything in the car (and even if you don't), do not consent to a search without a warrant. If they find anything without that warrant, you just got yourself in to a whole heap of trouble. If they ask to search your car, say no.
3. Unless they're writing you a ticket or you're getting arrested, they have no reason to hold you. Politely asking "am I free to go?" will make the police office send you on his way if he has no reason to detain you.
4. If you happen to be detained, the first words out of your mouth should be that you want a lawyer. Don't say anything to any cop before your lawyer gets there. Remain silent and quiet. Don't resist or make the situation worse.
Cops are trained to think that everyone is a criminal. So don't act like a criminal and you can usually get let go with a simple warning. Acting shady will only get you treated badly. Following these simple rules will hopefully keep you and your friends out of trouble if you ever have an unfortunate run in with the police.
