Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, May, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
All competitors at UFC on FUEL TV 9 were tested for performance-enhancing drugs and drugs of abuse, and one failed for the latter.
 
The UFC confirmed Tuesday night that featherweight Robbie Peralta was flagged for marijuana metabolites and suspended following the event, which took place April 6 at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm.
 
Peralta (16-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) dropped a unanimous decision to Akira Corassani (11-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) on the event's main-card, which aired on FUEL TV.
 
"The UFC organization has a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance-enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents," the UFC's statement read.
 
Peralta is suspended six months retroactive to the event. Additionally, he has agreed to attend drug rehabilitation classes and will be required to pass a drug test prior to his reinstatement, according to the statement. The negative drug test will be reported to the Association of Boxing Commissions.

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%.

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.

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.
