Alcohol, Not Marijuana, A Gateway Drug

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, July, 11th 2012 by THCFinder
While it may not settle the debate over how drug use begins, researchers found that alcohol, not marijuana, is the gateway drug that leads teens down the path of hard drug use, according to a new study that will be published in the August edition of the Journal of School Health.
 
"By recognizing the important predictive role of alcohol and delaying initiation of alcohol use, school officials and public health leaders can positively impact the progression of substance use," Adam Barry, study author and an assistant professor at the University of Florida, said in a statement.
 
Researchers looked at data from over 14,500 students from 120 public and private schools in the United States to evaluate whether students had used any of 11 substances, including alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, LSD, amphetamines, tranquilizers and other narcotics. They found that more often than not, alcohol was the first substance students tried before moving on to other drugs.
 
"I am confident in our findings and the clear implications they have for school-based prevention programs. By delaying and/or preventing the use of alcohol, these programs can indirectly reduce the rate of use of other substances," Barry said in a statement.
 
Alcohol was also the most commonly used substance, according to the study. More than 70 percent of students reported using alcohol at some point during their lifetime, compared to only 45 percent who reported using tobacco and 43 percent who used marijuana.

A Phoenix Tears Story

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, July, 10th 2012 by THCFinder

The story of Rick Simpson is well-known among many in the cannabis community, but his story and what he did needs to be known by everyone.

 

Run out of Canada by law enforcement because he grew marijuana, Rick Simpson made hemp oil and cured many people with cancer with the oil, as evidenced by dozens of testimonials like the one below.

 

“On November 25th, 2009,” Rick says on his website (http://phoenixtears.ca), “one day before I was crowned the Freedom Fighter of the Year at the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam, I received word that I have been raided again by the RCMP. I contacted Tim Hunter at the Amherst detachment and asked if I was being charged. Of course, he refused to give me straight answer. All he would say was that the RCMP wanted to talk to me.

 

“After openly growing hemp in my backyard this past summer and announcing this fact to the public on Tom Young´s open line talk show in June, how could the RCMP not be aware of my activities? The truth is they knew exactly what I was doing. RCMP officers were even sending people that needed help to me. I can only surmise that the purpose of this raid was to keep me from returning to Canada.”

 

So Rick is exiled for being a healer. Spread the word about hemp oil.

Jodie Emery at Vancouver Cannabis Day 2012

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, July, 9th 2012 by THCFinder

Marc Emery’s wife Jody continues her husband’s work, speaking out whenever and wherever she can. Marc is currently serving time in U.S. federal prison for the crime of selling marijuana seeds over the internet.

 

In reality, his arrest was politically motivated. “The day of Emery's arrest,” says Marc’s Wikipedia page, “American DEA Administrator Karen Tandy admitted reasons behind the arrest were politically motivated by releasing the following statement, which praised blows dealt to the legalization movement:

 

‘Today's DEA arrest of Marc Scott Emery, publisher of Cannabis Culture Magazine, and the founder of a marijuana legalization group -- is a significant blow not only to the marijuana trafficking trade in the U.S. and Canada, but also to the marijuana legalization movement.’”

 

The U.S. Government is big and slow and cumbersome, and can do little in the way of good. But they do not tolerate dissent on a large scale. Fringe movements can be easily isolated and strangled; large movements can sway elections and topple tyranny.

 

So Marc Emery was taken out of the equation for the most part, for 5 years. In his place his wife Jodie waves the banner of freedom, and speaks through the bullhorn of justice. We will never forget Marc or what he means to the movement.
