Medical Marijuana for PTSD

Medical Marijuana for PTSD

Use of Medical Marijuana for PTSD

According to discoveries by the Israeli scientist Dr. Mechoulam, marijuana treat those with PTSD by aiding in memory extinction. The canabinoid system is directly connected to memory extinction, which is the healthy loss of memory related to stimuli (loud noises or stress).

During a study, mice were introduced to a loud noise accompanied by an electric shock. Mice that were introduced to a cannabinoid system forgot about the shock after hearing the noise again (without the shock). Mice no introduced to a cannabinoid system never forgot.

How to Pass a Drug Test

How to Pass a Drug Test

How to Pass a Drug Test for Marijuana

Marijuana can stay in your system for 30 to 90 days or more. The first step you will have to take to pass a drug test is to stop using any weed in any form. If you have a hair test, you will have a much harder time passing a drug test. Marijuana can stay in your hair for up to a year. Although there are products for hair, they are not as effective. If you need to pass a drug urine test, you have more options depending on how much time you have.

How to Pass a Drug Urine Test in 24 Hours

If you find yourself in a situation that requires you to pass a drug urine test in the next 24 hours, your options are limited. The only real solution is using a temporary flush or cleanser. This works to remove toxins from your urinary tract to give you a small window of about 6 hours of drug free pee. After the 6 hour window, the toxins will start to re-enter your urine.

Dabbing Weed

Dabbing Weed

Guide to Dabbing Weed

If you consume marijuana or plan on doing so very soon, then you are most likely familiar or at least heard about the notion of Dabbing Weed. But what does this mean and does it have a positive or negative impact on your health? Let’s find that out right away!

What are Dabs?

Dabs are highly concentrated doses of weed. These are created via the extraction of cannabinoids like THC with help from carbon dioxide and butane. The result will be a very sticky oil named either wax or BHO. THC is most of the time the main product that helps boost the effect and efficiency of dabs to begin with.

Washington Pot Stings

Washington State Underage Pot Stings for Retailers

Underage consumers of pot? Yes, they still do exist. With the goal in mind to reduce underage marijuana sales, Washington State is starting a sting operation.

Earlier this month, on May 12, Washington State announced that officials will go undercover on a sting to make sure that legal pot retailers are not selling to minors. These officials will be sent by the Washington State Liquor Control Board Enforcement and Education Division. The division’s mandate is to enforce state liquor and tobacco laws and regulations, and pot falls under their responsibility.

Police Get Town High

Police Get Whole Town High

 Indonesian Police Get Whole Town High

Still seeing marijuana as an illegal substance, Indonesian authorities routinely destroy piles of pot by burning them. Those Indonesians who are convicted of crimes involving drugs are invariably detained and may even face the death penalty. These include the 13 individuals that Indonesia's National Narcotics Agency has arrested since January on charges of drug smuggling.

Keeping up with their traditions, Indonesian authorities recently burned tons of weed in West Jakarta, Indonesia. The cannabis had previously been confiscated by the authorities after they raided multiple places for manufacturing and smuggling cannabis, including an airport where customs officers found large quantities of more serious drugs like crystal meth and ecstasy.

The unnamed 11-year-old enrolled at Connecticut’s Bedford Middle School, who was enrolled in a gifted program at the middle school, was suspended recently when the Assistant Principal found a leaf in his backpack and misidentified it as marijuana.

Pot Tax Goes to Schools in CO

Pot Tax in Colorado

Colorado Schools Enjoy New Pot Revenue

Public schools in Colorado will be receiving a significant amount of money generated by legal marijuana. The funds have been accumulating since Jan. 1, 2014, when pot was first legalized in the state.

Over $15 million tax dollars ($15.6 million to be exact) will be put toward the Building Excellent Schools Today (BEST) grant program, as confirmed recently by Colorado’s Department of Education. Additional money for BEST will come from lotto-related interest and excess proceeds.

DC's New Marijuana Law

Washington DC Marijuana

DC’s New Marijuana Law Explained

Washington DC joins other cities that have decriminalized marijuana, and it’s quite interesting to see how the political elements are shifting. Right in the nation’s presidential area, people can now purchase and use what was once a criminal element. The legalization of possession and recreational use has now been in place thanks to a new local DC law. The concept is simple, you can now “legally transfer” marijuana from one person to another, with some issues still needing explanation. What does that really mean, and what do the law makers really consider the law to be? Explaining it is simpler than you may think.

Giving It Away

In some ways, the easiest way to understand the law is in regards to giving things away. Recently, magazine journalists have gone to the streets to understand this. One such option came from “High Times” in which less than an ounce of marijuana was given away, for free, in full legality of the new law. You can give it away, transferring it to another without cost. Recreational use, and possession is now legal, albeit not in public view. You cannot light up in front of the Whitehouse, but it’s still a big step forward.

Weed Vs. Liquor - Risk Analysis

Smoking Vs Drinking Risks

Smoking Marijuana vs. Drinking Alcohol: What’s Safer?

As the public and politicians continue to debate marijuana legalization, there is new research that suggests perhaps another discussion should be had. This recent study’s results point to smoking marijuana as considerably safer than drinking alcohol.

Yes, you read that last line correctly. Nature’s Scientific Reports journal reported recently that study researchers analyzed the association between substances such as tobacco, heroin, meth, cannabis, and alcohol. The substances were then listed in order of how much danger they were, from most to least risk.

DEA Warns of Stoned Rabits

Stoned Rabbits and DEA

Rabbits and Marijuana: What the DEA Has to Say

In light of the recent approval of recreational use of marijuana in a few of the states, and the subsequent tax revenue windfall, has many changing their position on the drug. State lawmakers across the country are proposing more lenient marijuana usage laws, even in conservative strongholds like Utah. Those resistant against marijuana usage are still trying to come up with whatever excuse they can to change lawmakers’ minds against such legislation. A Utah Senate panel considering a bill that would allow the use of medical marijuana for debilitating diseases heard testimony from both sides of the issue, but critics of marijuana usage have started to run out of material it seems. A Drug Enforcement Agency officer made some rather bizarre comments in favor of blocking the legislation in Utah.

The Environmental Case

While bearing testimony to many of the marijuana cases he has helped on over the years, the officer said he saw the environmental damage that can be done when pesticides are sprayed on the sides of mountains with illegal production of marijuana. While this may be true, agricultural production of all types use pesticides to increase yield . Also the point is mute once legislation allowing medical marijuana is approved, because it would allow lawmakers to place regulation on the production and distribution of the drug. While those who are illegally selling the drug now do their best to hide it from law enforcement, growers under the law would be subject to a certain set of criteria since the drug is intended for human consumption. If approved lawmakers and the local EPA can decide on the environmental standards that those that grow and sell the drug must meet in order to do business in the state. This testimony seemed somewhat irrelevant in light of the bill that was the topic of discussion, but the argument was one that could hold water better than the officer’s next point.

Origin of Pass it to the Left

Pass it to the Left

Why Pass it to the Left?

In terms of marijuana smoking etiquette, when a group is in a circle it is proper to pass the joint to the left. But, where did this rule come from and why to the left?

To Avoid Confusion

One reason to pass it to the left is to avoid the confusion. If each person does this every time, then it becomes routine. That limits the time spent wondering who to pass the joint to next. When your group keeps this pattern, then everyone is equal, and there is no favoritism involved with who you pass it to next. Nobody gets left out either.
