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...

Social Hypocrisy over Cann...

How is it that the supposed “moral majority” can deem alcohol advertisement “safe for kids” whereas marijuana advertisement is deemed “irresponsible”? If you were to look at statistics comparing the two substances you’ll find that on all accounts marijuana is safer than beer. A Bigot’s Claim to Morality Beer drinking morality-mongers believe that any “pro cannabis advertisement”...

Medical Marijuana Lobbyist...

Within the movement of cannabis reform there are those who you believe would be in favor of full scale legalization but then at times turn out to be standing alongside prohibitionists. Some people call this “Big Marijuana” in the attempts to point out similarities between “Big Pharma”, “Big Tobacco” and so on. Who is Big Marijuana? Big Marijuana relate to a few medical marijuana dispensary...

What could happen when Ame...

America has been manipulated for more than seven decades now being convinced that “drugs are bad”. This hasty generalization categorized “all drugs” as bad however seemingly forgot about “pharma drugs”. The progression of drug prohibition eventually led into what is known as the “War on Drugs” which has cost the US more than 1 Trillion dollars and has placed millions behind bars for a...

What to do with the Federa...

It seems that the American people have spoken and that the majority are in favor of legal marijuana with obvious opposition from religious political conservatives that pride themselves on “morals and American values” and of course Big Corp stonewalling progress. However two states pioneered into the world of Recreational marijuana and for roughly 18 months there has been little involvement from the...

Imagining Global Cannabis ...

Right now it might be difficult to envision a world where cannabis is openly traded in shops, grown on farms and processed in factories. I’m talking about Cannabis in all forms of course; the global cannabis trade; one of the most lucrative industries on the planet. We all know that hemp has thousands of uses and Marijuana is one of the most beneficial plants to humanity however we have obvious political...

Marijuana Use Linked To Lo...

Studies have shown that marijuana users are no more likely to deal with weight issues than non-smokers. In fact, researchers found that marijuana may have properties which can work to control blood sugar, helping diabetics keep their condition in check. In a recent may 15th study conducted by the American Journal of Medicine, regular marijuana use was linked to significantly lower levels of fasting...

The Cannabis Culture – The...

Throughout history we have seen the atrocities of man manifest itself in different ways whether it was the purchasing and selling of slaves or mass genocide in the name of God. We have seen figures in history rise up upon the fears and paranoia of the masses convincing them that a “specific group of people” is the cause to all their problems. While we have managed to “end slavery” and promote...
