Woody Harrelson quit; What happens to your body after a stoner quits smoking weed

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

Ask an expert about the effects of marijuana withdrawal and the conversation quickly turns to the cognitive.

After all, marijuana is a hallucinogenic drug that alters the brain, how a person thinks and perceives the world, research shows. Experts then can identify with actor Woody Harrelson and his decision to quit marijuana a year ago because it kept him from "being emotionally available."

It's true. Real feelings are among the things that return to a person coming off years of marijuana use. But so does anxiety and the realization of the drug's consequences.

Town Votes to Reduce Weed Possession Charges to Less Than $1

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

The police chief in Monona, Wisconsin seems like a very chill guy.

“If the community values are, ‘Marijuana is not that serious of an offense’ and they want to have a $1 fine, or no fine, that’s their opinion,” Chief Walter Ostrenga said after the town council voted to scrap all weed possession charges.

Under the new ordinance, possessing marijuana in public or in private spaces is no longer subject to a fine, as long as the person is over 21.

Smoking weed in a private residence is also exempt, although toking in public is still subject to a $200 fine.

After a year and a half of discussion, the Monona City Council considered reducing weed possession fines of $200 to a mere $1.

But then they decided even a dollar was too much.

Reefer Madness Hits Nepal

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

The number of drug-related offenses is “higher than any other heinous crime in Nepal and is increasing at an alarming rate,” according a none-too-objective March 17 account in Kathmandu’s the Himalayan newspaper.

The article credulously regurgitates the claims of a new report from the country’s Narcotics Control Bureau, breaking down crime figures since 2011. The total for drug offenses rose to around 1,800, while those for murder and rape remain in the hundreds, and abduction in the two-digit range.

And what kinds of drugs are at issue here? We are luridly told that “cultivation of genetically selected strains have [sic] led to increase in cannabis harvests. As a result, cannabis cultivation is increasing even in the hilly areas, posing a grave threat to security, according to the report.”

Legal Pot Hasn't Resulted in More Teens Smoking Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

Although some of the marijuana industry's biggest opponents feared legalization would lead to more teens smoking pot, teenagers aren’t using cannabis any more than they did five years ago. In fact, in the state of Washington, which legalized recreational use of marijuana in 2012, teen cannabis consumption has barely changed since adult pot shops opened up in 2014, according to Washington’s 2016 Healthy Youth Survey.

The survey, which is conducted every two years, analyzed the monthly marijuana use of more than 230,000 students from 1,000 schools and found only 6 percent of eighth graders, 17 percent of 10th graders and 52 percent of seniors had used marijuana within a month in 2016, which was the same figures for teen use in the state back in 2014.

We Need More Weed: Booze and Opioids Causing More Veteran Suicides

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

Rather than allow veterans to participate in medical marijuana programs in states where it is legal, the United States government has continued to encourage active and retired members of the military to self-medicate with dangerous prescription drugs. Sadly, a new study finds that this policy may actually be causing more of America’s soldiers to commit suicide.

The latest research shows that veterans with drug or alcohol dependency issues are twice as likely to kill themselves than the ones not plagued by those demons.

The study, which was published in the latest issue of the journal Addiction, suggests that medical marijuana could be a salvation’s wing for a number of vets who mostly rely on sedatives and opioid medications to alleviate the debilitating symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and chronic pain.

San Diego County Supervisors Vote to Kill MMJ Dispensaries

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 22nd 2017 by THCFinder

Last week, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to ban medical marijuana dispensaries and cultivation in the unincorporated areas of California’s second most populated county.

The two dispensaries already licensed to do business and three more in the process of opening would be allowed to operate for five years in order to recoup the investments made in accordance with current regulations. At the end of that time, the businesses will be forced to close. The decision does not affect businesses located within the 18 incorporated cities of the county.

The action of the board went against the wishes of the county planning commission, which recommended allowing medicinal dispensaries and cultivation-only facilities. The planning commission also suggested outdoor cultivation be allowed on county agricultural land beginning in 2018.
