Former NFL players call for medical marijuana to be taken off banned list

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

To understand football, Nate Jackson says, you need to remember one inherent truth about the game: a human body was not made to absorb that kind of punishment.

“There’s no safe way to get hit by a truck,” Jackson puts it.

Jackson, author of the football memoir Slow Getting Up, spent six seasons playing tight end for the Denver Broncos. Recounting a lifetime of football-related injuries is nearly impossible, because, as he put it: “You’re always kind of battling with something.”

To hurry players back from injury, a cocktail of pain pills and anti-inflammatory injections are typically dispensed. Hydrocodone, Vicodin, Percocet, Toradol, Celebrex, Vioxx (before it was recalled for increasing the long-term risk of heart attacks and strokes) and so on. The widespread use of highly potent prescription pain drugs, some argue, has allowed the NFL to become the multibillion-dollar industry that it is today, but at a price.

Is Shopping At An Indoor Garden Store Enough To Establish Probable Cause For A Marijuana Raid?

My dad’s apartment was raided by a SWAT team in 1989. It was a very traumatic experience (I was there). The cops kicked in the door, came in brandishing guns, and screaming so frantically I didn’t know what anyone was saying or what was going on. I know quite a few people that have had their homes raided by police, and it’s an experience that will no doubt haunt them the rest of their lives. It doesn’t take much for cops to raid your house when marijuana is potentially involved. An example of that is the case of Robert and Addie Harte.

Robert and Addie Harte are a middle class married couple that used to work for the CIA as analysts. One day Robert and his son went to an indoor garden store to purchase equipment to grow tomatoes as part of a class assignment. Little did they know that there was a state trooper sitting in the parking lot, compiling license plates that frequented the store in order to start investigations into whether or not the customers of the store were growing marijuana.

After further investigating the Harte family, members of Kansas law enforcement went through the Harte family’s garbage and found ‘saturated plant material.’ Via an unreliable field substance test, the material tested positive for marijuana. A later, more accurate lab test result was released which found that the substance was actually tea, but that test result wasn’t received back before a SWAT raid was conducted on the Harte family residence. Guns were put in kids’ faces, and the family was put through a traumatic experience, yet nothing was found. No marijuana plants, not even any marijuana paraphernalia.

Travel Guru Rick Steves Has The Best Advice For Fighting ‘Big Marijuana’

Category: News | Posted on Sat, January, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

grow your own weed‘Big Marijuana’ is like the boogeyman in the marijuana world right now. Marijuana opponents warn of the imminent demise of American society due to the threat of big marijuana. Those claims are nothing more than scare mongering. Many people in the marijuana movement and industry fear a corporate takeover of marijuana, and those fears are well founded in my opinion. Travel guru Rick Steves has some stellar advice to combat the corporate takeover of marijuana – grow your own.

Rick Steves offered up that advice in an interview he did with KUOW a few weeks back. The comments came as Rick Steves was discussing the need for Washington State to add a home cultivation provision to its marijuana legalization law. As it stands right now, Washington is the only state to legalize marijuana but yet not allow home cultivation. Per KUOW:

Rick Steves doesn’t think Big Marijuana should control your pot. That’s one reason people in Washington state should be able to grow their own weed, Steves told KUOW’s Jeannie Yandel.

“I don’t want marijuana to go the route of tobacco and have Joe Camel and Big Tobacco and Big Marijuana” dominate the industry, Steves said. “If there’s money to be made, it’s going to attract big corporate interests and they’re going to have the clout. I like the idea of having home grow because it gives people an option to having to buy something from a giant organization. They can just have a few plants on the window sill, and it’s not a big deal.”

Marijuana industry building a buzz

Category: News | Posted on Sat, January, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

DENVER — Snoop Dogg has his own line of marijuana. So does Willie Nelson. Melissa Etheridge has a marijuana-infused wine.

As the fast-growing marijuana industry emerges from the black market and starts looking like a mainstream industry, there’s a scramble to brand and trademark pot products.

The celebrity endorsements are just the latest attempt to add cachet to a line of weed. Snoop Dogg calls his eight strains of weed “Dank From the Doggfather Himself.” Nelson’s yet-to-be-released line says the pot is “born of the awed memories of musicians who visited Willie’s bus after a show.”

Marijuana gap divides Colorado towns that sell pot, those that don't

Category: News | Posted on Fri, January, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

LOG LANE VILLAGE — An interesting David-and-Goliath dynamic is taking shape across Colorado's burgeoning commercial cannabis sector, with tiny communities friendly to the sale of recreational marijuana living in the shadow of large — and totally pot-shop-free — neighbors.

Manitou Springs, just a few miles from Colorado Springs, is the only place within a reasonable distance of the state's second-largest citywhere you can buy recreational weed. On the Eastern Plains, Log Lane Village plays the same role vis-…-vis Fort Morgan, a city 10 times its size.

Garden City, which weighs in at less than 1 square mile, has four recreational pot businesses. On the other side of 25th Street lurks Greeley, with more than 96,000 residents. It has none.

DEA Eases Restrictions on CBD Research to Benefit Big Pharma

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 31st 2015 by THCFinder

There was speculation last week that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration might be on the verge of downgrading the Schedule I classification of the cannabis plant. Unfortunately, the end result proved the implications behind the rumors were somewhat overstated, as the agency simply moved to ease the restrictions surrounding one of the herb’s most infamous non-intoxicating compounds in an effort to abridge the research process for Big Pharma.

Last Wednesday, Tom Angell with the Marijuana Majority revealed that he had obtained a letter from Congressman Earl Blumenauer that suggested the Food and Drug Administration and DEA were finally working together to reclassify marijuana under federal law. Although the details were vague,the document, which was sent to Blumenauer by the Justice Department, clearly states that the “DEA is currently reviewing two petitions to reschedule marijuana in accordance with the [Controlled Substances Act].” 

The news of this development generated a great deal of excitement in marijuana advocates across the nation. The consensus was that regardless of how small the reform, if the federal government did finally decide to change the Schedule I status of the cannabis plant, it would be a big step in the right direction. An article published in SF Weekly suggested, “The drug is in a good position in Schedule I” because “there’s nowhere to go but down.”
