Why Is Cannabis Still A Schedule I Drug? Political Magic 101 - Misdirection

I was sent a very interesting e-mail from the father of medical marijuana in America – Dennis Peron. See his essay below: By John Entwistle & Dennis Peron Medical marijuana was the new face of the evil weed when we wrote the Compassionate Use Act of 1996. It was new to a nation under the influence of a 60 year long reefer madness campaign. It was new to all but the very old. The rest of us were too young to know that from the time before the pyramids right [...]

Frequently Asked Questions About Purging BHO

No one wants to consume BHO that is not properly purged for health reasons, and because it tastes horrible.

But where a rookie BHO maker is separated from an expert BHO maker is during the purging phase. If you want to step up your [...]

How To Grow Big Bud Marijuana Indoors

By Robert Bergman Although growing indoors might limit some people, Big Bud marijuana seeds can produce high yields in a minimum of space. One of the best things about Big Bud is right in its name. The buds are obviously large, but the smoke is one that will stick with you as well. The strain calls Skunk one of its antecedents, making it a distinctly indica-dominant hybrid. Big Bud offers a lot of good things that will be valuable to any grower, novice or otherwise.  Big Bud Smoking Effects Despite the [...]

By Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director Lawmakers in four states — Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, and Utah — are poised to enact legislation in the coming days/weeks aimed at providing patients, primarily children with forms of intractable epilepsy, with strains of cannabis and/or cannabis extracts high in the compound cannabidiol (CBD). I have previously written why, in theory, these proposals will likely provide only limited relief for patients. A closer look at the text of these proposed laws indicates that, in fact, they are largely unworkable and will most likely provide no tangible relief or [...]

Do You Name Your Marijuana Smoking Device?

Stoners take a lot of pride in their glass collections, going to great lengths to keep their pieces shining, sparkling, and ready to hit. Not only is keeping them clean extremely important but some stoners believe that pieces should always have names. Sometimes, the names are funny and other times, they’re just a reflection of their owner’s interests. Why do some stoners believe that this process is vital to their smoking experience? When a piece is named, there are some stoners that believe the chances of it breaking go down. [...]

Help Save Oregon Patients' Medical Marijuana Edibles

Under the first draft of Senate Bill 1531 rules, the Oregon Health Authority effectively prohibits licensed state facilities from providing any sweet medicated edibles to patients. This initial rule seems to incorporate a flawed interpretation of SB 1531, as all of the debate surrounding the need to regulate medicated items  during the legislative process always revolved around the marketing of items towards children, just as Joe Camel is no longer an acceptable marketing tool for Big Tobacco and just as Colorado and other jurisdictions have mandated. However, never has any [...]
