What Is Schedule I and Why Is Marijuana on the List, Anyway?

Category: Tokers | Posted on Mon, July, 3rd 2017 by THCFinder

Almost every media report on marijuana legalization at the state level references the fact that cannabis remains listed as a Schedule I illegal drug in the U.S.

In another words, despite 29 states legalizing medical marijuana and eight states legalizing adult-use marijuana, the United States government still considers marijuana an illegal drug with no health benefits and a high potential for abuse.

But what exactly is a Schedule I illegal drug? Who does the scheduling and why? What are some of the other drugs on the list?

 

The following answer those questions and provides an overview of the five federal government drug schedules -- including the fact that the U.S. ranks marijuana as having a higher potential for abuse than cocaine, Vicodin and methamphetamines.

People Line Up to Buy Recreational Marijuana in Nevada

Category: Tokers | Posted on Mon, July, 3rd 2017 by THCFinder

Hundreds of people lined up in the middle of the night to be among the first to buy legal marijuana in Nevada, which became the fifth state to allow recreational sales on Saturday morning. Tourists and locals alike were in the often-long lines celebrating the first sales that came after voters in Nevada approved legalization in November.

Now anyone who is 21 and older can buy up to an ounce of marijuana in Nevada. And while tourists are expected to make up a big percentage of the customers, marijuana can only be consumed in a private home. That’s why dispensaries seem to be banking on the popularity of edibles, particularly in Las Vegas.

New Research Shows Potential on how Cannabis can Reverse Brain Aging

Category: Tokers | Posted on Thu, June, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

Cannabis Use Among Senior

As research uncovers more and more health benefits of cannabis, it is clear that the stigma of cannabis use is steadily falling away, a fact which is reflected in the increasing use among the senior population. One study found that between 2006 and 2013, rates of cannabis use in people age 50 to 64 increased by 60 percent, while use among those over 65 increased by a whopping 250 percent. In light of recent research, this could be greatly beneficial for those in this age range – a new study reveals that cannabis can reverse brain aging.

One of the most noticeable symptoms of brain aging is degrading memory performance. And, while a decrease in cognitive functionality is expected with aging, more alarming symptoms could signal the onset of dementia, a devastating condition that greatly reduces a person’s quality of life due to its impact on memory, awareness, and mood; in fact, many seniors with dementia require a caretaker to help carry out daily activities. Furthermore, Alzheimer’s, a type of dementia, is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States.

Budtending Is a Real and Important Job

Category: Tokers | Posted on Tue, June, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

Budtenders working in weed dispensaries have a lot of influence over their customers, especially those who aren’t sure what they need, want or are looking for.

Thankfully, most budtenders are knowledgeable and very helpful.

While many started off behind the counters when the industry was still operating in the so-called “legal gray” area, they have learned on, and off, the job.

One young woman told LA Weekly that with widespread legalization, budtending has become a job to be taken seriously.

Canada Issues Guidelines for Safer Use of Marijuana

Category: Tokers | Posted on Sun, June, 25th 2017 by THCFinder

As many countries move toward legalizing pot, officials in Canada are releasing guidelines for how people can lower the health risks that may be associated with the drug if they choose to use it.

The guidelines, which were released today (June 23) by the Canadian Research Initiative on Substance Misuse, are meant to educate marijuana users so that they can make choices that could modify the risks from the drug. The researchers likened the new pot guidelines to recommendations that already exist to help people lower the risks associated with drinking alcohol.

What Happens If I’m Charged with a Marijuana DUI?

Category: Tokers | Posted on Wed, June, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

While there are some major differences in the way police handle cannabis-impaired driving and drunk driving, most court systems hand down similar consequences for both offenses. If the court convicts you for driving while under the influence of marijuana, you can expect the ramifications to include a license suspension, a drug and alcohol awareness class, fines, probation and even jail time.

However, the way the prosecution will build their case against you is very different with stoned driving. They cannot simply conduct a breath test after pulling you over to determine if you used cannabis recently.

For example, in Washington State, police have two options for proving a driver is under the influence of marijuana. These options are:

  • Observing signs, conducting field tests, and bringing in an officer trained in drug recognition; or
  • Conducting a marijuana blood test to determine whether the driver is over the per se limit of 5 ng/mL.
