Is Cannabis Far Safer than Pokémon Go?

It’s a drug so insidious, its oblivious users fall from cliffs

 

It’s a drug so insidious, its oblivious users fall from cliffs, walk directly into major highways at the peak of rush hour, absentmindedly stop their cars in the middle of the road — or wrap vehicles around trees — and become the ‘unwitting’ victims of armed robberies and stabbings. But despite government propaganda criminalizing one ‘drug’ as a dangerous narcotic with no redeeming qualities or medicinal value, the substance in question isn’t cannabis — it’s Pokémon Go

Every one of the aforementioned incidents — and likely an untold number more — are the real-life consequences the phenomenally popular app’s users have subjected themselves to while in the drug-like haze of game play.

Though an actual death has yet to be attributed to Pokémon Go, the app is already far more dangerous than cannabis. Yet cannabis, in most states, can lead to your imprisonment, extortion, and tarnishment of your permanent record, thanks to the State’s sham war on drugs.

At this point, it’s virtually inevitable we’ll see a headline marking the first Pokémon Go fatality — something the State can’t even officially ascribe to its politicized Schedule I villain — no matter what propaganda would have you believe.

“Death by Pokemon is coming,” Gerry Beyer, Governor Preston E. Smith Regents Prof. of Law at Texas Tech Univ. School of Law, dystopically warned.“Pokemon users will have all sorts of accidents as they use the program while walking, biking, driving, etc.”

Firefighters performed a harrowing rescue on Wednesday in Encinitas, California, after two twenty-something spellbound Pokémon Go fanatics tumbled “several stories” from a crumbling sandstone cliff. The Los Angeles Times reported,  Read more

Democrats Call for ‘Pathway’ to Legalization

Democrats call for ‘pathway’ to marijuana legalization

The Democratic Party endorsed a "reasoned pathway to future legalization" of marijuana and called for the drug to be downgraded in the Controlled Substances Act, in a tense and unexpected victory for supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Going into the platform committee meeting, Sanders's campaign had no new language about marijuana. The senator from Vermont had favored state-to-state legalization efforts, and the language approved by the drafting committee called for "policies that will allow more research on marijuana, as well as reforming our laws to allow legal marijuana businesses to exist without uncertainty."

But on Saturday afternoon, the committee brought up an amendment that would have removed marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act. David King, a lawyer and Sanders delegate from Tennessee, argued that marijuana was added to the act — giving the drug the same legal classification as heroin — during a "craze" to hurt"hippies and blacks." The amendment, however, was headed for defeat, with some committee members worrying that it went too far and undermined state-by-state efforts to study decriminalization...

The text of the marijuana amendment:

Because of conflicting laws concerning marijuana, both on the federal and state levels, we encourage the federal government to remove marijuana from (continue reading)

Is 7/10 the New 4/20? Some Say Yes

For those who enjoy concentrates, Happy Oil Day! 


Most people who are familiar with cannabis recognize 4/20, either via its definitive history or the myths surrounding it. The number "420" has roots in cannabis more than 30 years deep, but a more recent cannabis holiday is taking the cannabis community by storm: 7/10, also known as Oil Day or, more affectionately, Dab Day. 

"710" is the number associated with cannabis oils and extracts for the plain and simple reason that if you turn the number upside down, it looks an awful lot like the word “OIL.” (Go on, try it on a calculator, just like how you used to type in 5318008 in math class and then giggle with your friends when you turned it upside down.)

Unlike the 4/20 holiday and celebrations, the 7/10 holiday is a recent phenomenon with debatably vague origins. 710 celebrations were first noted in 2013 after Colorado and Washington legalized cannabis, and may have resulted from the sudden abundance of legal cannabis oils.  (Read more)

Do You think 7/10 will become the new 4/20?

Over the last month we've taken a much needed vacation and also relocated our business. 

Now we are rested and ready to go with new graphic designs. 

What Walgreen's Wants You to Know about MMJ

"Research has also shown marijuana provides pain relief in ways traditional medicines don’t." -Walgreen's

Walgreens wants you to know the difference between a vaporizer and an edible — the marijuana kind.

In a post on the company’s “Stay Well” Tumblr blog, Dahlia Sultan, a pharmacy resident at the University of Illinois and Walgreens, wrote about the benefits of medical marijuana. (The post notes that Walgreens isn't a licensed provider of medical marijuana and advises customers to consult their doctor for information on cannabis.) 

“Research has also shown marijuana provides pain relief in ways traditional medicines don’t,” Sultan wrote. “Medical marijuana can improve appetite and relieve nausea in those who have cancer and may help relieve symptoms such as muscle stiffness in people who have multiple sclerosis.” The article cites medical studies from the National Cancer Institute and the National Center for Biotechnology Information.(Read more)
