Weed Enthusiast Can't Change Name To "NJWeedman.com"

Category: Odd | Posted on Wed, September, 7th 2011 by THCFinder

The man just wants to change his name, we say let him, who cares...

NJ-born Robert Edward Forchion is a staunch and dedicated marijuana activist who has participated in just about every weed-related activity there is: he's a practicing Rastafarian who has opened up his own temple, he's been a "marijuana smuggler," he's operated a medical marijuana dispensary, and he's run for political office several times unsuccessfully with pot platforms. More recently, he's been fighting to legally change his name to NJWeedman.com. But The Man won't let him!
 
Forchion, who lives in California now, filed a petition to have his name changed legally to "NJWeedman.com" after his website. You can read all about the case here, but ultimately, the courts decided against him for three reasons: domain names aren't forever, and people would be confused if he ever lost the domain; Forchion's legal name would be forever associated with a website that advocates a currently illegal activity; and NJ already rejected Forchion's requests to change his name.
 
But wouldn't a Ganja Dwarf strain by any other name still smell as sweet?

How To Fight Obesity? Maybe Try Smoking Marijuana

Category: Odd | Posted on Sun, September, 4th 2011 by THCFinder

After reading the title you are probably thinking, those guys must be high! Well think again, apparently the study down shows that people who smoke marijuana are less likely to be obese than those who don't... who would of F!ucking thought?

The rapture is still right around the corner, but even if we somehow get past that cataclysmic event, America has other problems—like the fact that half the population will be obese by 2030. But there may be a solution: start smoking marijuana!
 
That's what new research out of France suggests, although researchers decidedly do not recommend that course. Because marijuana increases appetite, researchers hypothesized that users would be more obese than non users. But they discovered the opposite: "We found that cannabis users are less likely to be obese than non-users. We were so surprised, we thought we had [made] a mistake. Or that our results were due to the sample we studied. So we turned to another completely independent sample and found exactly the same association," says Dr. Yann Le Strat, a psychiatrist at Louis-Mourier Hospital in Colombes, France and co-author of a new study in the American Journal of Epidemiology.
 
Obesity rates among participants in the two surveys who didn't smoke pot were 22 percent and 25.3 percent; those who do smoking pot at least three days a week had obesity rates of 14.3 percent and 17.2 percent. Le Strat warns that there could be "confounding factors"—pot users might exercise more, be outdoors more, eat more fruits and vegetables—and doesn't think the take-home message should be 'smoke cannabis, it will help you lose weight.'
 
But Andrea Giancoli, a Los Angeles-based registered dietitian and spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association, says that maybe it's time we started thinking differently about the typical pot head: "I know when we think about smoking pot, one of the jokes is that it gives you the munchies and dry mouth so you drink a bunch of water and eat a bunch of Cheetos. Maybe we need to adjust the stereotype." And while neither Le Strat nor Giancoli recommend people start smoking pot to lose weight, we can't help but wonder what might happen if a certain overweight Governor stayed away from the helicopters, fatty foods, and beaches for awhile and got in touch with his inner Snoop Dogg.

N.Z. woman arrested trying to reclaim lost weed

Category: Odd | Posted on Thu, September, 1st 2011 by THCFinder

Not one of the brightest people i've read about but atleast she tried to get her weed back, so points for that I guess?

WELLINGTON (AFP) - A New Zealand woman who lost a bag filled with cannabis was arrested when she tried to reclaim it as lost property from the local police station, it was reported Wednesday.

The bag, containing about 20 grams (0.7 ounces) of marijuana separated in tinfoil wraps, a cannabis pipe and a mobile phone, was found at a ferry terminal in Picton on August 16, the Marlborough Express reported.
 
After it was handed over to police in the South Island town, the mobile phone rang and a male caller enquired about its whereabouts, so officers informed him it was at the Picton police station, the newspaper said.
 
Patricia Wright was arrested when she turned up at the station to reclaim the bag, immediately admitting the drugs and cannabis pipe were hers.
 
The 61-year-old received a six-month supervision order and was told to undergo counselling when she appeared in the Blenheim District Court on Monday.
 
Judge Peter Hobbs said Wright had a history of drug convictions, the newspaper said.

Woman pulls out bag of weed when asked for ID

Category: Odd | Posted on Tue, August, 30th 2011 by THCFinder
CLEARWATER — When asked for her identification, a 27-year-old woman also pulled out a bag of marijuana, according to police, leading to her arrest for possession of that drug and an assortment of pills.
 
Danielle Rae Shockey was sitting in a car in the parking lot of the La Quinta Inn Clearwater Central at 21338 U.S. 19 N just before 3 a.m. Saturday when a Clearwater police officer approached the car and asked Shockey what she was doing.
 
Shockey, of Clearwater, said she was talking to her boyfriend and considering renting a hotel room, an arrest report shows.
 
The officer asked Shockey for her ID. She reached into her purse and removed her ID along with a bag of marijuana, police said. Shockey tried to conceal the bag, according to the report, but was unsuccessful.

Illegal as of today: synthetic marijuana & "bath salts"

Category: Odd | Posted on Mon, August, 22nd 2011 by THCFinder
HARRISBURG, Monday, Aug. 22, 2011 - Possession of synthetic marijuana, bath salts and salvia are now against the law in Pennsylvania.
 
"These poisons are called 'fake drugs,' but the danger they present to young people and the burden the use of these 'fake' drugs puts on our police departments and hospitals is all too real," said Rep. Jennifer Mann, D-Lehigh, who helpd pass the law earlier this year. "As of today we're giving our police officers the tools they need to get these drugs off the street and out of retail stores."
 
Under the law, the first offense for delivery or possession with the intent to deliver carries a penalty of up to five years in prison and a $15,000 fine. Simple possession of the drug carries a penalty of up to a year in prison and a $5,000 fine.
 
"The biggest problem with these drugs was access - a 17-year old couldn't walk into a mini-mart and buy cigarettes or walk into a bar and buy alcohol without severe repercussions for the teenager and for the business doing the selling," Mann said, "but before this law that same teenager could walk into a smoke shop and buy a synthetic version of cocaine that's been called even more intense and dangerous than the real drug by addicts."
 
Pennsylvania is now 21st state to ban these drugs, she said.
 
"There are already reports of a new 'fake' drug they're calling 'Jewelry Cleaner' replacing bath salts on shelves," Mann said. "While this new law is an important tool, it's equally important for parents to be aware of what their children are bringing home and for community leaders to be aware of what's being sold in their towns."

Mounties let honest pot-smoking driver go

Category: Odd | Posted on Tue, July, 12th 2011 by THCFinder
A Yarmouth driver who smoked a joint while an RCMP officer chatted with drivers a few cars ahead of him at a roadside checkpoint last week fessed up when asked if he had smoked any dope recently.
 
Yup, he said. Like, 30 seconds ago.
 
But was the 20-something man’s seatbelt securely fastened? Absolutely.
 
Was he co-operative? Yes.
 
And was the odour of that freshly smoked joint still wafting through the air as the cops waved him up? Yeah, but he seemed fine, so after he put his small stash of dope into the outstretched hand of a Mountie, he was on his way.
 
But smoking a joint while waiting in line at an RCMP checkpoint may not be the smartest thing to do, said Cpl. Andy Hamilton of the RCMP’s western traffic services.
 
"I don’t know the exact distance, but it wasn’t very far (back in the line)," Hamilton said.
 
"I can’t get into this guy’s mind, but he felt comfortable enough to light a joint within eyesight of the police, probably figuring he’d finish it off before he gets there and no one will be the wiser."
 
When he got to the front of the line, the joint was gone but the Mounties noticed other evidence.
 
The mellow man was detained for a while but eventually sent on his way.
