Idaho Replaces Mile Marker 420 With 19.9 To Thwart Stoners

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, August, 20th 2015 by THCFinder

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- If you're looking for milepost 420, you won't find it in Idaho.

Idaho transportation officials say the mile marker has been replaced with 419.9 signs to curb thieves eager to own a number associated with marijuana enthusiasts.

Turns out, Idaho isn't alone in this problem. States like Washington and Colorado have also replaced 420 signs with 419.9 after consistently having to replace them after thefts by supposed sticky-fingered stoners.

Adam Rush of the Idaho Transportation Department says officials have replaced the old sign along U.S. Highway 95 with "MILE 419.9," just south of Coeur d'Alene.

Rush added that this is the only 420 sign the department has replaced in Idaho, a state known for its strict anti-marijuana laws despite being nearly surrounded by states with relaxed pot regulations.

Why Does Cannabis Cause You To Dream Less?

Category: Odd | Posted on Sat, August, 15th 2015 by THCFinder

It is known that cannabis is effective in helping individuals that suffer from insomnia; of the many medicinal applications of cannabis, sleep aid is certainly one of them. What is strange, however, is that many of those that use cannabis as a regular sleep aid report having a loss of dream activity or an inability recollect any dreams at all. Considering the normal effects of marijuana on normal, waking consciousness, why is it that the dream state is dulled while sleeping under its effects? 
 
To address the question of marijuana effecting REM sleep, “Feinberg, et al. (1975) compared the sleep patterns of experienced marijuana users on tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and a placebo. Feinberg, et al. (1975) reported reduced eye movement activity and less REM sleep in the THC condition. They also reported a REM rebound effect, that is more REM activity, on withdrawal from THC. So,there exists some scientific evidence that marijuana interferes with REM sleep.”  
 
REM sleep is the stage of sleeping where our dreams occur and our brain begins to function almost as if you're awake, only your surroundings are produced by your mind. These dream states, when experienced excessively, can exhaust the mind much like normal consciousness, which results in grogginess after waking even after a sufficient night of sleep. When cannabis is used as a sleep aid, it drastically reduces the time spent in the REM stage of sleep and actually lengthens the time spent in deep sleep or the slow wave sleep stage. In this deep stage of sleep, the body is able to devote itself to healing and rejuvenating from the physical and emotional exhaustion of the day before.

Meet The Organization Behind The Viral Pro-Marijuana Letter That DARE Accidentally Published

Category: Odd | Posted on Tue, August, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

Drug Abuse Resistance Education, America’s most controversial substance abuse prevention group, accidentally posted a pro-marijuana legalization letter on its website Friday.

Carlis McDerment, a former deputy sheriff from Ohio who has since joined up with Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), wrote a letter titled “Purchasing marijuana puts kids at risk,” which the Columbus Dispatch published in response to another letter written by Dr. Johanna Said.

In the letter, McDerment argued that enforcing the current prohibition against marijuana actually puts kids at greater risk than simply legalizing the drug.

DARE quickly picked up and posted the piece on its website, and after a reporter at the Washington Post sent in a query wondering if DARE was softening its anti-drug stance, the organization pulled the article several hours later. The piece still went viral. A spokesperson clarified that the organization does not, in fact, support legalizing marijuana.

Farmer Offers 10 Acres of Pot for Malia Obama's Hand in Marriage

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, July, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

A Jamaican farmer has offered President Obama 10 acres of marijuana for Malia Obama to become his daughter-in-law. 

According to Kenya Today, Roy Chambers of St. James Jamaica believes that Malia and his 17-year-old son would be the "perfect couple," and to prove it, he is willing to give up his "most valuable possession"—his marijuana farm. 

"I tried to approach President Obama with my offer while he was in Jamaica a few months ago but the security prevented me," Chambers told the Jamaican website 18 Karat Reggae Gold. "I have sent him a regular mail to the white house and also an email so I hope he will reply soon."

Believe it or not, this is not the first marriage offer that the president has received for his teenage daughter. 

A Kenyan lawyer recently offered Obama 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats for Malia's hand in marriage—an offer dismissed as "a sign of bad luck and bankruptcy" by a second Kenyan suitor, Jeff ole Kishau.

New Study: Honeybees Will Replace Drug-Sniffing Dogs

Category: Odd | Posted on Fri, June, 26th 2015 by THCFinder

While the marijuana laws across the United States continue to change at an impressive rate—not to mention the advent of major drug overhauls in countries like Portugal and Uruguay—it has become increasingly more difficult for the soldiers of the drug war to use dope-sniffing dogs to effectively take down cartel mules trying to squeeze illegal narcotics into the black market.

However, a group of scientists believe they have found a solution to the diminishing K-9 narcotics infantry—honeybees that have been trained to detect illegal substances.

Researchers at the University of Cologne in Germany recently published a study in the journal Plos Oneentitled “Detection of Illicit Drugs by Trained Honeybees,” which details their success at pinpointing how insects will replace the drug-sniffing hounds of the world. The team began by testing the sniffer capabilities of three particular insects: the grapevine moth, the hissing cockroach and the western honeybee. Ironically, it was the honeybee that scientists determined was the best possible candidate for conducting drug stings because of its unprecedented ability to individually alert on every substance from cannabis to caffeine.

Police: Woman Reports Drug Deal Rip-Off, Ends Up Charged

Category: Odd | Posted on Sun, June, 14th 2015 by THCFinder

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a South Florida woman who called 911 to report that she was getting stiffed in a drug deal ended up reporting on herself: She now faces charges including drug possession.

The Broward Sheriff's Office reports that 19-year-old Daneshia Heller told a 911 operator Tuesday that she went to a Fort Lauderdale home to buy marijuana, but a man there took her $5 without giving her the drugs.

Officials say a deputy checked a white substance in Heller's pocket, which tested positive for alpha-PVP, a psychosis-inducing street drug known as flakka.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that Heller was charged with drug possession and misusing the 911 system. Jail records show Heller was in custody without bond for violating the terms of her release on an unrelated misdemeanor battery charge. Jail records didn't list an attorney who could be contacted for comment on her case.
