Pot Mumblings: Medical, Police Corruption, Legalization
Is There Anything CBD Can’t Do? Then Why Is It Illegal? [NORML]
Here is an article simply listing the many things that marijuana has been proven to help: Antiepileptic, Sedative, Anxiolytic, Antipsychcotic, Antidystonic, Antioxidative, Neuroprotective, Antiinflammatory, Cardioprotective, Action on diabetes, Antiemetic, Anticancer, and many other things. I won’t sit here and act like marijuana is the cure all. However, I can’t sit here and act like it doesn’t help either. Don’t take my word for it. These are independent and unbiased scientists and doctors around the world telling us the truth about marijuana. They’re not the DEA trying to save their jobs. They’re not paid-off politicians either. And, drug dealers lose money if marijuana is legalized.

Here we go with another case of large scale police corruption.
Clay Adams, 36, who lives near Altamonte Springs, will likely be sentenced to at least 15 years in prison. He pleaded guilty to five federal charges, including conspiring with his wife to grow 2,200 pounds of marijuana.
And, this is NOT anything special either. This is more typical than most people are willing to admit. The United States spends $70,000,000,000 yearly to fight drugs only to have the people they trust with eradication end up somehow selling it back. Every time you hear the DEA or local police say they eradicated a field of marijuana, think harvested as in a farmer who harvests his crop. It does look good to the fringe anti-marijuana folks when the news reports that another field has been eradicated.
Question: Am I the only who wonders why they don’t show the actual burning of the marijuana as well?
The Big Question: Is it time the world forgot about cannabis in its war against drugs? [The Independent]
It seems the British are making the right move in regards to marijuana legalization or decriminalization by taking their argument to the United Nations. Here’s my favorite part of the article:
Why does the report suggest cannabis should be legalised?
It argues that although cannabis can have a damaging effect in health and on mental health, it is actually far less damaging than alcohol and tobacco. “Historically, there have only been two deaths worldwide attributed to cannabis, whereas alcohol and tobacco together are responsible for an estimated 150,000 deaths per annum in the UK alone,” the report alleges.
Cannabis Q&A: New Suppliers and Pink Bunnies
How does one go about actually getting marijuana?The great thing about marijuana is that it’s everywhere. Your best bet at finding a dealer is to make connections with other users. First start with who you know – friends and family. Find out if they smoke as well. The best way is to start this conversation from a point of naivete. Ask a friend what they think about marijuana reform. Make sure to admit that you don’t have a problem with it. Then, gently ease the conversation toward usage. Would you try it if you had some? Admit that you’d try it without admitting that you’ve already tried it. Chances are you may come across a friend or family member who also uses or at least knows someone who uses. Now, do what you can to connect with the dealer.
The trick is getting people to reveal themselves as opposed to you trying to uncover them.
In cases where you don’t know anyone else that smokes, you’re going to have to open your world a bit. Attend some parties, go back to college as a grad student (cover for the parties), go to marijuana-related events and rallies, join some groups, and so on. The idea here is to network, find more friends, and then mine them for users. This is something we should all be doing more anyway. Just be patient and don’t push too hard.
As far as police interference is concerned, do not to take (get caught physically holding) marijuana from anyone until they’re approved by either you viewing them smoking or they were introduced to you by a friend who you’ve seen smoking. Never deal out in the open (hand to hand) either.
What kind of experiences have you had while under the influence?
My first real intense experience with marijuana was in the days when I was smoking a lot of the cheap stuff. I made what’s called a godfather out of some mexibrick weed. A godfather is a cigar that’s emptied, not cut or split open, and refilled with ground marijuana. Packed in appropriately, you can fit about 10+ grams of marijuana. After I smoked this godfather entirely, I did begin to hallucinate. I laid back on my bed staring at the ceiling and became hypersensitive. The lights from the tv and laptop became too bright. I turned everything off. As I sat in this now dark room, I started seeing flashes of pink light. It started becoming more like a flickering show where pink bunnies began to form. Now, it wasn’t so vivid to make me think they were really there. I did very much know what was going on and it was hilarious. I think this is where most people become paranoid because they don’t expect that level of mental activation so it scares them. But, I knew it was coming so I enjoyed it.
This is how I came to truly understand and appreciate the difference between indica and sativa.
Another experience occurred from some freshly grown marijuana. Let me tell you, the fresher, the better! I hadn’t smoked in a few months opting to lower my tolerance before the harvest (I knew about it). I rolled a 2-gram joint from this marijuana. About 10 min after I finished smoking this joint, I began to feel that hypersensitivity. I thought, “Here I go again!” But, it was different this time. It started with a feeling of waves along the sides of my head. It felt like a light massage of my brain. Eventually, it began to grow in intensity emanating from my forehead to the back of my head like deep brain massage. It was an awesome feeling. I laid down and just let the good vibrations take me. I don’t remember falling asleep but I remember waking up about an hour after I took the first puff. That’s the last time I looked at the clock. I know I wasn’t sleep for that long. I felt really good and relaxed and a little energized as well.
Those examples were the most intense of many great experiences I’ve had with marijuana.
Green Tip of the Week: Stay hydrated
Any kind of smoke will tend to dry out the mouth and throat. Drink plenty of water while you smoke marijuana. If I remember right, marijuana is also a diuretic which helps remove excess water from your body. So, don’t worry about getting bloated.
