Does Marijuana Enhance Creativity?

Does Marijuana Helps Get the Creative Juices Flowing By Sean – Herbal Incense | Spice Incense We marijuana smokers often attribute many benefits to our beloved weed.

Cigarette Smokers Need To Quit Stealing My Marijuana Lighter

Do You Have A Tobacco Smoker That Steals Your Lighter? I smoke marijuana all day long. I do not smoke cigarettes. As a result, I am the victim of lighter theft on a daily basis.

It’s always the same story – thorough smoke session occurs, I don’t realize the lighter is [...]

I really hope that people get active in support of that effort. Below are the current Kentucky marijuana laws, courtesy of Kentucky NORML: Decriminalized? — No. Possession of less than 8 oz (first offense) is a misdemeanor, punishable by 1 year in jail and a $500 fine.

Tips For Avoiding Getting Caught Growing Marijuana

Are You a Smart Marijuana Gardener? While you may think your system is unbeatable, the chances are that you may have missed something. Germinating cannabis seeds is indeed illegal and unless you live in a country where it isn’t, you need to never forget it. The tragedy of this is that you probably grow just enough for yourself and aren’t harming anyone with your private (probably indoor) garden packed with your favourite strains. The police possibly won’t see it this way, so you are best to do all you can [...]

I sent out e-mails across the nation, and even to some international Students for Sensible Drug Policy chapters, with interview questions in order to write articles like this one to highlight their efforts.
