710 Pen Sets the Standard ...

When it comes to receiving new products, presentation is everything – and the 710 vaporizer pen did not disappoint. Upon receiving the vaporizer, I was immediately enticed by the sleek matte black case with the signature 710 logo printed across it. As everyone knows, the number 710 turned upside down reads ‘oil’ and in the case of the 710pen, it’s presented beautifully in thin block white and...

How to butcher the America...

The American dream has been an inspiration to many people; some even cross perilous deserts to sneak into America’s back door for a mere sip of its splendor. However, if you ask the majority of Americans today whether the “American Dream” is alive and well, most would only stare down at the rotting corpse of its former glory. It seems that more and more Americans are in debt, it seems that...

United States the First Do...

Cannabis legalization is only a stone throw away. Every single day we can see more people jump on the legalization train and every day we see governments all over the world open their minds to the idea of legalization. While the subject has become very popular, there still is some resistance to the idea and there is a reason for this as well. Why Prohibition Lasted so Long Prohibition has been going on for...

Exploring one’s own consci...

Have you ever wondered where an idea comes from? How your imagination can dream up a plethora of crazy and wild ideas seemingly from ‘nowhere’. The origin of thought has stumped philosophers, scientists and intellectuals for centuries and while we can all assume no one will ever know the origin of thought. Your mind is a magnificent biochemical mechanism that processes a plethora of information and...

Debunking Prohibition Rhet...

How many times have you heard about “the children” as an excuse for prohibition? I’m sure many times over. But if we actually take this claim at face value and compare it to the obvious failure of the War on Drugs then we begin to question whether the motives for keeping drugs illegal are truly about the children, or whether there are other reasons at play. Drug War Failures Essentially the drug war...

Bank of America will recei...

The war on marijuana came from all fronts and for the legal marijuana industry the lack of financial institutions willing to accept funds from marijuana businesses was one of the greatest threats. However, Bank of America has decided that in Washington they will accept revenue from thus said businesses taking one gigantic step in the right direction to bringing the black market to light and legitimizing...

How to “Chill out” a Hooli...

In Lisbon Portugal 2004 England was facing France in an epic battle in the Euro Cup 2004 opening game. For those of you who don’t know the English soccer fan, or really soccer fans in Europe…they get violent. They drink, they chant, the win or lose…names are spouted, fingers are shown and suddenly…a brawl breaks out. One punches the other, a kick to the face here, elbow to the testicles there and...

How “High” is a Marijuana ...

Recently a Kansas marijuana Advocacy group “Fire It Up Kansas” attempted to adopt a highway. Firstly, I would like to mention that this is an amazing idea and more advocacy groups should look into it. Not only would you have the ability to own a space where you publically can advocate the legalization of cannabis you’d also be doing a “solid” for society. Sadly however, they were denied their...

Marijuana and Professional...

Professional sports and cannabis have had their clashes throughout history. Many champions have had sponsorship deals removed, titles revoked and medals taken away. But the entire view on cannabis and sports is really distorted and doesn’t make too much sense. Cannabis doesn’t “enhance” your ability Unlike steroids or enhancement drugs, cannabis really doesn’t work in your favor. For competitive...

How Legalizing marijuana w...

The black market only exists because the substance is illegal. IF the substance was legal then the black market would simply be the market. Any non-market operations would have a difficult time competing with the lower prices of the market and not to mention advertisement space, quality, diversity and approachability. Advertising the Black Market away When I can walk into a store and buy an ounce without...

The Rise of Marijuana Bill...

The Marijuana Policy Project is pushing the boundaries with what is “accepted” in society by putting up some real cannabis billboards. Their recent endeavor once more caught media attention as they placed a 14-by-48 foot sign along the main boulevard to the Denver Sports Authority Field. The sign was directed to the NFL and their “anti-marijuana” policy begging the question; “Why are they driving...

Hemp Making Noise on the P...

Hemp is by far humanities greatest crop and still highly illegal in many places in the world. We often hear stories about Marijuana while Hemp is usually hidden in the dark. In the US hemp was bundled along marijuana and is a Felony offense despite the fact that Hemp does not get you high. Hemp is purely industrial in nature, it is one of the fundamental building blocks to society. In fact, if marijuana is...

Law Makers milking the Mar...

By clear definition Marijuana should no longer be listed as a Schedule I substance due to extensive medical research and countless patient testimonials received by those with medical marijuana cards. The empirical evidence in favor of marijuana legalization leaves us only with one question; Why hasn’t it been legalized yet? To answer this question we must look at those who benefit from the current state...

Why Marijuana Decriminaliz...

Some people argue that full scale legalization is a bit extreme and therefore advocate Decriminalization. Essentially what decriminalization means is that the drug remains illegal but consumption is tolerated. But while this would create some more wiggle room for consumers, it still fails to address the serious issues surrounding drug prohibition. In order to acquire a safer society full scale legalization...

Legal Marijuana- A Weapon...

Poverty is something that affects all nations however there are certain nations that suffer extreme poverty. Countries such as Swaziland and Haiti, to name a few, are limited with the natural resources at their disposal not to mention the lack of technological advances limiting their possibilities tremendously. In many cases these types of countries turn to the illicit drug trade to generate their income...

Why Growing Marijuana Shou...

By now we all know that cannabis has curative properties and if this isn’t reason enough to allow each and every human being to grow their own cannabis then there is something extremely wrong with the current state of affairs. Nature should never be against the law. When a specific plant has the ability to cure even 1 disease, that plant should be automatically permitted to be grown by anyone. If a plant...

A brief Analysis of Prohib...

According to Prohibitionists there are several reasons as to why or several “logics” that dictate and support the efforts of prohibition. We’ll take a brief analysis of these logics and debunk every single one of them with reason. Let’s get at it then; Marijuana is a Gateway Drug and should remain illegal Marijuana is not a gateway drug and if we wish to come to argue those points the same could be...

Are you being charged for ...

There is something wryly peculiar about marijuana laws specifically relating to the part of “Intent to distribute”. What this essentially means is that according to current drug laws if you have more than X amount of drugs on you, automatically you’re a drug dealer. A Review of Law I’m no lawyer that’s for sure but there is something incredibly off about the law. If you were to drive with guns in...

When the Rich and Famous G...

There has been a trend of late among celebrities being more “open” regarding their cannabis use. In some cases the mere fact that they are admitting to cannabis use increased their overall public acceptance. A recent story about Robin Thicke admitting to his expensive Marijuana habit has gone somewhat viral on the internet. His claim of spending $500,000 on marijuana (probably per year) has shocked...

Marijuana is a Social Drug

Since Washington and Colorado legalized marijuana almost a year ago people thought that the Marijuana model would be up and running in no time. They found however, they were wrong. For decades the government presented a binary option in terms of marijuana; yes or no. But as it turns out, legalizing marijuana impacts more than just a “yes and no” criteria. For instance; if marijuana is legal, how legal...
