Little known locally about earwax marijuana
Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
This is a perfect example of a dumb ass kid who doesn't know what the hell he is doing. It's just like someone who's never really drank alcohol before and starts taking shots of Parton. The media loves to exgerate by calling Cannabis Concentrates "very dangerous" but yet have you ever heard of it harming someone? I didn't think so, it may cause people to get sick or feel anxious and have other symptons that you could relate to drinking too much but it's not something that can harm or kill you.
Two minutes after taking a five-second hit from a vaporizer, Josh felt the effects of the earwax marijuana rushing over him.
"I felt like I was gonna die," the 17-year-old recalled. "The movie we were watching started to look 3-D. I kept seeing lights."
What the others in the group Josh was with had failed to tell him when they offered the drug to him, was that earwax marijuana can include up to 90 percent THC.
In short, it's highly hallucinogenic. And, knowledgeable sources say, it can be very dangerous to certain people.
Officials on Solano County's Alcohol and Drug Advisory board, say they know little about earwax marijuana "Cannabis Concentrates" -- its nickname derived from its appearance -- or its potential dangers.
The night Josh was under the drug's influence, someone telephoned Rhonda, Josh's grandmother. She picked him up and drove him to the hospital -- where his hands were handcuffed to the bed rails and he was later arrested.

Vet recommends medical marijuana for pets in pain
Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
LOS ANGELES — Until she introduced “magic cheese” to her sick and aging bulldog, Laura Bugni-Daniel watched him suffer for two years. He’d spend his days lying down or throwing up.
Today, at age 12, he plays like a puppy through the day, his fur is soft and he sleeps at night, soothed not by magic, but by the dose of marijuana in that cheese.
Bugni-Daniel is part of a growing movement to give medical marijuana to pets in pain. Many urge caution until there’s better science behind it. But stories abound about changes in sick and dying pets after they’ve been given cannabis — even though it isn’t a proven pain killer for man or mutt, and it’s an illicit drug under federal law despite being legal for people in 19 states and the District of Columbia.
Leading the charge is Los Angeles veterinarian Doug Kramer, 36, known as the “Vet Guru,” who felt it was his duty to speak out while he has no family that would feel a verbal or financial backlash.
“I grew tired of euthanizing pets when I wasn’t doing everything I could to make their lives better,” he said. “I felt like I was letting them down.”
Pot eased his Siberian husky’s pain during her final weeks, after she had surgery to remove tumors. Not only did Nikita stop whimpering while using cannabis, but she started eating, gaining weight and meeting him at the door again.
It gave him six extra weeks with his dog before he had to euthanize her, he says. It wasn’t a cure, but he thinks it freed her of pain and improved her last days.

Despite Colorado's marijuana laws, employers allowed to ban it's use
Category: News | Posted on Sun, July, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
Although Von Miller plays professional football in Colorado, where marijuana is legal, he still has to play by the rules of the NFL.
Amendment 64, which was approved by Colorado voters in November 2012, is now enacted as Article 18, Section 16 of the state constitution. The amendment allows those 21 years of age or older to use and possess marijuana.
However, the amendment states: "Nothing in this section is intended ... to affect the ability of employers to have policies restricting the use of marijuana by employees."
In short, even though the law permits marijuana use, private businesses don't have to. Marijuana is one of the drugs banned by the NFL.
Miller is appealing a four-game suspension for an unspecified violation of the NFL drug policy. The Denver Post received documentation that showed Miller tested positive for marijuana multiple times during his 2011 rookie season.

Australian Marijuana Has The Highest Levels Of THC...We call BullSh*t
We have worked with dozens of labs across the country who test Cannabis on a daily basis and we have never seen one test every reach 40% THC or higher from the actual buds. Concentrates are a whole other category but for the flower itself it's extremely rare to even seen above 30% THC for flowers. Someone is making these numbers up or using equipment that has not been properly calibrated and cleaned. What we have found is most strain test in the 13% - 15% on average with some high end strains in the 20's and rarely anything in the upper 20's let alone 30's for the THC% unless it's a form of concentrate being hash, wax, oil etc... So with that being said we are calling shenanigans!!! We would love to see these "test results" that produced a 40% THC level but I doubt those will ever come to light.
Marijuana's strength is measured by its THC content, the drug's active ingredient. The level of THC has been steadily increasing in marijuana over the past 10 years. Data indicates that in America, marijuana contained an average of three percent THC in 1993, while in 2008 THC levels nearly tripled to nine percent. However, this isn't even close to the THC levels in Austrailia.
A new study by the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre indicates that Australian marijuana is by far the strongest in the world. In measures of THC content, much of the marijuana seized from people on the streets there contains an average of 15 percent THC, and can go as high as 40 percent THC.
This study provides the first comprehensive Australian data on street-level cannabis potency, through analysis of cannabis seizures obtained from New South Wales (NSW), Australia's most populous state.
The use of such high levels of THC can force users to suffer serious adverse events. These events include seizures, dependence, and even anxiety. In fact, the use of marijuana with such high THC levels ends up undoing the drug's "therapeutic" effects.
Researchers were interested in where the Australian marijuana was grown, as location may have an effect on THC content. They found that regardless of indoor or outdoor cultivation, the marijuana coming from Australia's NSW region tended to have levels of THC that were out of control.

Mail-order marijuana operation busted
SACRAMENTO, California (KCRA) -- Postal inspectors have busted a marijuana mail-order operation in the Sacramento region, according to court documents uncovered Wednesday.
A federal criminal complaint revealed that postal inspectors found more than 400 Express Mail packages -- with money inside -- sent from 16 states to the Sacramento area.
The complaint indicates these packages were part of a large drug-trafficking operation that shipped marijuana out of California.
Two people were arrested in connection with the operation: Matthew Gillum, of Loomis, and Jolene Chan, of Roseville.
Gillum and Chan face charges of marijuana distribution, the unlawful use of mail, and avoiding currency transaction reporting.

Pro-marijuana ads pulled from NASCAR's Brickyard 400
Maybe NASCAR and marijuana don’t mix, after all.
Under pressure from anti-drug groups, the company that owns the Jumbotron at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has pulled a pro-marijuana ad from this weekend’s Brickyard 400 NASCAR race.
The ad, which extols marijuana as being "less harmful than alcohol," was produced by the Marijuana Policy Project and had been scheduled to air dozens of times from Friday through Sunday on the Jumbotron
The ad targeted beer drinkers, claiming that marijuana is not as fattening or dangerous as alcohol.
"Our goal is to make this weekend's event as educational as it will be enjoyable," Mason Tvert, director of communications for the Marijuana Policy Project, said in a statement. "We simply want those adults who will be enjoying a beer or two at the race this weekend to think about the fact that marijuana is an objectively less harmful product.”
After the Drug Free America Foundation, Inc. found out about the ad, they complained to Grazie Media, the company that owns the large screen located at the entrance to the raceway, who announced on Friday that they were pulling the spot.
"Grazie Media does not, in any way, shape or form, support the use of marijuana nor the promotion of illegal drugs at a family event," Vanessa Wojtala, CEO and director of programming at Grazie Media, said in a statement.
