Can Someone Fail A Drug Test For Simply Touching Marijuana?

Category: Odd | Posted on Sun, September, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

marijuana jointEveryone knows that a person can fail a drug test for consuming marijuana. A lot of people are surprised to find out that you can also fail a drug test for being around too much second hand marijuana smoke (for an article about that, click this link here). A scientific study was recently conducted which found that even breaking up marijuana can result in a failed drug test. Per Culture Magazine:

A recent study conducted in Germany proves that even something as simple as breaking up cannabis and having residue on your fingers can cause a failed drug test.

This study was conducted by the University of Freiburg. The science behind the idea was simple: ten participants had to role one joint a day, and take a urine test every day. The study showed that by the middle of the study, most of those involved tested positive for THCA and THC, and four weeks after the test, the THC levels were still noticeable when hair was tested. This means that a month after touching cannabis, you can still test positive in some ways for the substance.

It takes quite a bit of marijuana handling to fail a drug test, but it is definitely possible, as proven by this case study. This is very significant for people that work in the cannabis industry, but think they can still pass a drug test because they don’t consume marijuana. People that are on probation or are required to be involved in some type of diversion program are who I think of off the top of my head. If you handle marijuana too much, you will absorb THC via your hands. Moral of the story – make sure to wear quality gloves if you have a need to handle a lot of cannabis but also need to pass a drug test.

Drone Deliveries are Making Cannabis Rain from the Heavens

Category: Odd | Posted on Mon, August, 31st 2015 by THCFinder

Drones are becoming a hot topic in the news lately, and it seems as if everyone is trying to slice themselves a piece of sky pie. Amazon has considered using drones to deliver packages via Prime Air, and North Dakota just passed a law that would allow police forces to use drones armed with non-lethal weapons such as stun guns and beanbag rounds. Not to be outpaced, the cannabis industry is also getting into the drone game.

 

A San Francisco-based startup called Trees Delivery wants to use drones to deliver its subscription-modeled bud, extract, or "beginner" boxes to its eager customers. Unfortunately, the Federal Aviation Administration has yet to come on board with the idea of Amazon dropping packages out of the sky, let alone Trees Delivery parachuting bundles of cannabis to outstretched hands. Furthermore, the potential to rob a cannabis delivery drone seems all-too easy.

Has there ever been a successful drone delivery of cannabis? Well, earlier this month a drone was caught delivering heroin, cannabis, and tobacco to an Ohio prison yard. A brawl broke out as inmates fought over the bounty, but instead of sneaking some drugs into their jumpsuits, they got pepper-sprayed, strip-searched, and nine prisoners were placed in solitary confinement. Maybe the sender should try pigeons next time (or not, as we all know how well that tends to turn out).

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.
