Hemp History Week

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, June, 5th 2012 by THCFinder

The prohibition of industrial hemp costs the United States billions of dollars every year. You can’t get high on hemp. It is a great food source and is better for making paper and fabrics than any other substance. Yet it illegal for an American farmer to grow it.

 

Manufacturers are allowed to import hemp, so when you look at it, the prohibition of hemp is really a big “F U” to American farmers and companies. The purchase of hemp from a foreign country is legal, as is using hemp in this country. The only thing that’s really illegal is Americans making money off of it.

 

And yet very few politicians talk about industrial hemp. That may be because they don’t hear about it often enough from their constituents. Elected officials have to know that people are tired of silly laws that stifle our economy.

 

The video below features a group trying to do just that. The nonprofit group Vote Hemp is trying to raise awareness on this issue and they say progress is being made on the state and federal level. The time for this ridiculous prohibition on an absolutely harmless product is brought to an end.

Marijuana Wine Now on Sale in California

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, May, 31st 2012 by THCFinder
People who love wine are called oenophiles.
 
There’s no equivalent word for connoisseurs of marijuana, and “stoner” doesn’t have the right association with elites and haute cuisine. But there’s a new recipe for wine on tap that leverages the love of both intoxicants – wine aged with marijuana.
 
The recipe, according to an article in the Daily Beast, is a pound of marijuana in a cask of wine. It works out to about a gram and a half of marijuana per bottle. The better the wine and the more potent the weed, the better the product it is said.
 
The chemistry is straightforward. Fermenting wine produces alcohol. The active ingredient in marijuana is soluble in alcohol, along with other “flavoring agents” that might be extracted. Leave it to extract out the goodies for the better part of a year and the result is a product that is gaining popularity with the wine sipping crowd.
 
The article doesn’t mention if drinking a whole bottle of the stuff would be equivalent to smoking 1.5 grams of marijuana, and it shouldn’t be. Marijuana that is eaten produces a different dosing profile than the quick high from smoking. And then there’s the added alcohol content from the wine.
 
Traditionalists in both camps probably aren’t impressed. Marijuana smokers might consider it a waste of good dope. Wine drinkers aren’t usually fond of playing around with tradition either.
 
On the other hand, there’s a bit of a mystique here – after all, it would be illegal for most people to drink it, especially when exported to other states that aren’t as lenient on marijuana as California.
 
Still, it might be a look into a future if marijuana gets fully legal status. And from reports, the product is actually pretty tasty.

Jamaican Flowers is the next great cult classic.

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, May, 30th 2012 by THCFinder

Jamaican Flowers is the next great cult classic. Outlandish characters and chronic humor are sure to satisfy even the most intense craving of the literary munchies. It's a psychedelic adventure!

 
Full Synopsis:
Sonny Flowers is pure, charming genius when it comes to biochemistry and genetics–specifically, marijuana and its potential to make the world a more joyful place–but he still has a lot to learn about fatherhood, guilt, women, happiness and himself, and very little time to learn it in.
 
Sonny has already lost one daughter and will lose the other unless he can win her back–and do it before he literally loses his mind.   With the Feds about to shut down his Stateside marijuana farm and laboratory, Sonny finds himself in Jamaica working for a self-proclaimed Rastafarian Deity whose wife has overdosed on the very hybrid plant Sonny and his daughter, Summer, are struggling to perfect as a cure for what has become a world epidemic: Bipolar Disorder. 
 
A crooked general, determined to make a splash in the world, has other ideas for the hybrid's properties.  Faced with sharks (the salty kind), a plane crash, a tongueless henchman, the haunting memories of those he's loved and lost (and why it was probably his fault), not to mention his own blooming psychosis, Sonny finds help wherever the universe is willing to provide it:  Dehlia Storm, a nineteen-year-old voodoo priestess, and her two-timing boyfriend, are for some reason willing to help Sonny save the two women he loves. 
 
Time running out, Sonny not only has to decide which characters in this crazy story he's living he can trust, but also what is real and what decidedly is not.
