Jimmy Buffett Endorses Medical Marijuana In Florida

Jimmy Buffett is very popular, especially in Florida among older voters. So when he publicly endorses medical marijuana in Florida, it’s a big deal. My grandma was on the fence about marijuana legalization for a long time, and what pushed her over the top was a video that I showed her where Willie Nelson endorsed marijuana legalization. ‘If it is good enough for Willie, it is good enough for me!’ she exclaimed. Below is a video in which Jimmy Buffet expresses his support for Florida Amendment 2 and various other initiatives in Florida.

Federal Evidentiary Hearing Regarding Marijuana Scheduling Concludes

By Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director United States District Judge Kimberly Mueller heard testimony over the course of the past five days in regard to the constitutionality of the federal statute designating marijuana as a Schedule I Controlled Substance. At issue in this evidentiary hearing is whether the scientific literature provides a rational basis for the federal classification of the plant as a substance with “a high potential for abuse,” “no currently accepted medical use,” and a “lack of accepted safety” for use under medical supervision. The federal government’s position was articulated in testimony provided by Dr. Bertha Madras, Professor

Ten Reasons OMMP Patients Should Support Measure 91

By Dr. Richard Bayer, Co-Chief Petitioner of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act OMMP Stays the Same. Measure 91 doesn’t impact the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program. Measure 91 explicitly states that the rights of OMMP cardholders won’t be impacted. Research. This law allows state money to be used for research on the benefits and appropriate uses of marijuana. Keeping marijuana illegal has prevented much-needed medical research and clinical trials. Money has already been appropriated for that in Colorado. Privacy. Legalization means patients won’t have to get an OMMP card unless they want to. Many patients have privacy concerns about their medical

Raskal OG Marijuana Strain Review And Pictures

Raskal OG Cannabis Strain Review And Pics The Raskal OG marijuana strain is one of my favorites to smoke because while it’s dense, it burns thoroughly. I take a lot of waterfall hits, and having a consistency like that is important so that the nugs don’t burn too fast or slow. The Raskal OG marijuana strain is a cross between Fire Kush and San Fernando Valley OG Kush, and was originally bred by Cali Connection. The THC levels for Raskal OG is roughly 17%. The nugs are light green, and the smell is very piney, as is the taste. Check out the Raskal
