The Ten Biggest Signs That Times Are Changing And Marijuana Legalization Is Inevitable

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, April, 27th 2013 by THCFinder

If you haven’t noticed, marijuana legalization is a mainstream issue, and the majority of Americans believe it’s the right path forward. After decades of absurd propaganda, draconian laws, and a public that believes marijuana to be the devil’s weed, it’s increasingly refreshing to see the winds of change take place. In many parts of the country and world, marijuana laws are as harsh as they’ve ever been, but no where is the situation hopeless, and it’s hard to see widespread legalization as anything less than inevitable.

 

Here’s a list of what we feel to be some of biggest signs that legalization is here to stay, and times are changing.

 

Laws are being reformed, all around the world. Countries like the Czech Republichave recently legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes, others like Uruguay are considering recreational legalization, and over half of America has either decriminalized marijuana or legalized it for medical purposes (with legislation pending in numerous states across the country), etc.. The revolution is here, and in places where it’s not as prevalent – it will be soon.
 
The majority of Americans support legalizing marijuana – a few decades ago, support was around 12%. Polling from the Pew Research Institute found that not only did 52% of Americans support legalization, but 72% feel that, despite their views, it’s inevitable. An even more recent poll, conducted by the Huffington Post and YouGov, found support among Americans to be at 57%.

42.0 Facts About Marijuana, And Why It Should Be Legal

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, April, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
The year is 2013. And weed remains illegal. We can’t do anything other than keep pushing, pleading, voting, and smoking the herb we love. There is nothing in this life more powerful than facts-and facts can only be ignored for so long. Here are 42 facts about marijuana:
 
1. No one has ever overdosed or died from smoking too much weed. In the history of mankind.
 
2. Marijuana has been in an “official” state of prohibition since 1937-s Marijuana Tax Act (in the United States). Because, among other reasons, it made white women desire black men.
 
3. Colorado and Washington legalized cannabis for recreational use this past October. They have estimated tax revenues of over $550 Million from this legalization.
 
4. There are more medical marijuana dispensaries than Starbucks in Los Angeles and Denver. Because reefer is safter than coffee.
 
5. There are 26 States with pending marijuana legislation, both medical and legal. 8 of these states have a legitimate chance to legalize recreational use. This is called a “Tipping Point.”
 
6. Over the last decade, the NYPD has spent 1 Million Hours Making 440,000 Marijuana Arrests.
 
7.The first law in America relating to cannabis was a 1619 law that actually required farmers to grow the hemp plant. Once harvested, hemp was useful for clothing, sails, and rope.
 
8. In 1906, cannabis was labeled as a “poison” and states began restricting its sale.
 
9. By the mid 1930s, cannabis was regulated as a drug in every state.
 
10. From 1850 to 1942, marijuana was listed in the United States Pharmacopoeia as a useful medicine for nausea, rheumatism, and labor pains and could be purchased from pharmacies and general stores.

25 People Who Are More 'Evolved' Than Obama On Marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, April, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
On April 20, people around the nation will celebrate the enigmatic 4/20 holiday by smoking, toking and eating marijuana. According to federal law, they could all be arrested for using a Schedule I substance, a classification that also includes drugs such as LSD, PCP and heroin.
 
President Barack Obama supports that law, or at least has done nothing to change it -- and he could, simply by rescheduling marijuana out of Schedule I. Despite his past as a renowned ringleader of the pot-smoking "Choom Gang" while growing up in Hawaii, his administration's current position offers little sympathy for marijuana, regardless of the drug's legal status in various states.
 
According to the White House's official position against legalization, "marijuana use is harmful and should be discouraged." Obama has dismissed legalization as well, and while he's said that the recent pot legalization efforts in Washington and Colorado prove there needs to be a discussion, there have been no signs that he plans to scale back his aggressive enforcement policy.

Boston Bomb Suspect's Marijuana Use Blamed For Terror Attacks

When we marijuana aficionados celebrate 4/20, it’s not because we’re looking for a excuse to party and get high. We’re getting high already; we don’t need a calendar and a watch for that. No, what we are celebrating is our culture and identification as members of an oppressed minority. 4/20 isn’t just our “Stoner Holiday”, it’s also like our “Pride Parade”. It’s our stand against those who seek to keep us second-class citizens. It’s our rejection of being forced to hide in a smoky garage while our friends drink beer openly in almost every public accommodation. It’s our fellowship in shared traditions borne of outlaw status, like taking a furtive toke in a bathroom, blowing smoke through the ventilation fan, using eyedrops and Febreze and a lighted match to disguise the evidence of our “criminal” acts. It’s a collective rememberance of our friends and family who lost anything from a job or scholarship to their freedom or their life because nature’s most human-beneficial plant is banned.
 
As I was finishing up my preparations for my 4/20 presentations tomorrow, I received the embedded picture above from a friend. It is from the Facebook account of Christine Tatum. She is a journalist and anti-pot crusader who I’ve mocked in the past for her over-the-top reefer madness. But this post, on 4/20, blaming marijuana for two young men’s destructive lunacy, moves her from the “mocking” column to “righteous indignation” column on my “To Do” list.
 
Let’s see, there are 26.1 million annual tokers, 17 million monthly tokers, and 2 million daily tokers in America. Two of them are alleged terrorists. That’s literally, at best, a one-in-a-million risk.
