"Just Move To A State Where It's Legal": A Marijuana Mom Responds

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, July, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
just-move-mj-stateDiane Fornbacher, Publisher of Ladybud Magazine, recently posed a question online asking how people felt about the advice given to so many activist parents when it comes to having their family’s safety threatened by bad marijuana laws. Oftentimes, these mothers are told to just “move to a legal state.”
 
One detail that struck me during the open and balanced online discussion was a judgmental undertone that appeared to be aimed by dissenters towards the parents who agreed with the advice.
 
Respondents in favor of moving overwhelmingly cited their children and the effect legal consequences would have on them as their reason to move. Some responding have had personal, devastating interaction with Child Protective Services (CPS) already and are suffering the consequences. It is unclear if any of the parents responding in dissent have had CPS experiences.
 
Of the people that expressed disagreement with the advice, a few referenced having special needs children whose care and education would be disrupted by moving. A few expressed a desire to move but lacked the funds to do so. Most responding opined that they would not move cited an activist’s sense of duty to fight to change the laws of their home state. It is unclear if everyone responding had children or personal chronic health issues.
 
Admittedly,  I’m sensitive regarding my decision to move my four children and I to Colorado. Maybe part of me agrees with the sentiments expressed by those that disagree with the advice but I don’t agree with what some responders implied about my decision to move in order to preserve my family.
 
“What’s the point of being an activist if you have nothing to activate for?” was the response from one person.
 
To that I respond, “What’s the point of being a mother without anyone to mother?”
 
What made me, a mother of four, decide to move my children from the unfriendly (and getting unfriendlier by the minute) state of Wisconsin to the legalized marijuana state of Colorado?
 
The most important factor is the immediate safety, well-being and happiness of my family.

Marijuana Art

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, July, 9th 2013 by THCFinder

Smoking cannabis has been known to put you in a state of high that allows you to focus your attention completely, and get lost in a world unbound by time.

art11

Art from a stoners point of view is sure to be unique and colorful in more ways than one. These characteristics make it even more possible for the creative stoner to make magic on the canvas. Strokes of paint and other mediums that help tell the story of Mary the medicinal herb are a gift. Shown in this Marijuana Art feature are some very remarkable artists and even more remarkable depictions of MJ and MJ life. Scrolling through these masterpieces  you’re sure to find one you’d like to add to your marijuana shrine. Just when you thought cannabis couldn’t get any cooler StonerDays presents, Marijuana Art.

To be moved in such a way as to inspire art is a beautiful occurrence, that’s something that’s shown continuously through these visuals.

Not only do these present marijuana in an artsy way, but also shows a bit of humor in some too. Get high and let your stoned eyes take over for this one.

art4

This first photo leaves a lot to be wondered about the inspiration behind the sketch. There could be a number of reasons why an artistic mind might be drawn to show a picture like this.

It seems to say that even though America has experienced the struggle and hardships of witnessing a tragedy, that there is still hope.

Hope that could perhaps be revealed to you through Mary Jane. The artist could have been a survivor or relative of someone lost who gained peace again though smoking weed. Whatever the reasoning behind it, it’s nice to be able to enjoy it now and see cannabis among so many things that we deem respectable.

art9

How many times have you inhaled sweet dank and before you knew it, you were lost in your own thoughts, daydreams, and fantasies.

As you began getting caught up in a world of vivid brightness and face numbness, you are now getting a taste of what is describes as bliss.

Inhale more drags and feel your eyes from across the room staring back only at you. This artist has managed to capture a freeze frame of everything a stoner internally feels while unwinding, a true picture of stoner insights. A mystical look at what our brains really look like while getting blown to Mars, no cracked eggs, only complete awesomeness.

art12

A work of art that screams surrender and let go. Give your body to cannabis and watch the wonders she can do for you. A picture of love being gained and knowledge being shared through inter-dimensional marijuana travel… maybe not the exact thing the artist was thinking but probably close. This is a great example of a picture being worth a thousand words. Whatever feelings this painting evokes on your first look just go with it.

It’s emotional and captivating, seductive and green, pure art eye candy.

There are endless possibilities to create when artist meets medium, and these artists chose to create works of bud beauty to express themselves, now how incredible does that make them? Very!

Hemp flag flying high over the Capitol building

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, July, 4th 2013 by THCFinder

hemp-flag

In a screenshot from the farm bill debate Rep. Jared Polis holds the hemp flag. (Courtesy C-SPAN)The flag flying over the Capitol building on the Fourth of July might look like your typical Old Glory.

But you probably won’t notice the fibers that make it special. It’s believed to be the first hemp flag to flutter over the dome since the government began outlawing marijuana’s less-recreational cousin back in the 1930s.

Colorado hemp advocate Michael Bowman is the man responsible for getting the flag, made from Colorado-raised hemp and screen-printed with the stars and stripes, up there.

He cooked up the idea while lobbying Congress this year to include pro-hemp measures in the farm bill. That legislation failed, of course, but the seed of the hemp flag had been planted.

Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) gave Bowman an assist with the details, which included working with the Capitol’s flag office. (The flag programallows people to buy flags flown over the Capitol, so they rotate in new Old Glories nearly every day.)

o-CAPITOL-DOME-FLAG-facebook
“It’s a powerful symbol,” Bowman says, adding that the red, white and blue flying over the Capitol is a reminder of the role that hemp played in the founding and early days of the country. Betsy Ross’s flag was made of hemp, he notes, and Colonial settlers even paid their taxes in the crop — it was used for all kinds of goods, from rope to fabric to paper. Those Conestoga wagons heading west were covered in canvas fashioned from hemp fibers.

So, he thought having it fly on America’s birthday seemed pretty appropriate.

After its Capitol flight, the flag will make its way back to Colorado, where it will fly over the state capitol building in Denver. After that, Bowman is sending it out on a tour of state houses in states where there’s legislation pending that would legalize hemp. One of the first up: Vermont.

And while advocates are quick to point out that hemp lacks the THC content beloved by stoners, this will still be one high-flying flag.
