Over 100,000 Rape Kits Go Untested While Marijuana Users Get Arrested

Here is a ridiculous question – would you rather cops focus on catching rapists or marijuana users? Obviously the answer is police should be focusing on catching rapists. Marijuana users are not harming anyone, while a rapist can ruin numerous lives in a short amount of time. Every minute that a rapist is loose on the streets is a minute that could result in another violent crime being committed by them. I understand that catching a rape suspect is not easy. One of the biggest tools that law enforcement has to help catch rapists is testing rap kits which contain

Florida Governor Signs CBD-Only Medical Marijuana Law

2014 has been a big year for CBD-only legislation. States that aren’t normally associated with medical marijuana reform efforts have passed CBD-only medical marijuana legislation. These states include Utah and South Carolina. You can now add Florida to that list. Florida Governor Rick Scott signed a CBD-only bill into law on Monday. Per Reuters: Florida Governor Rick Scott signed a law on Monday allowing for the limited use of a special strain of marijuana to treat epileptic seizures and other diseases. State lawmakers passed the measure this spring with bipartisan support after impassioned appeals from parents seeking access to the

Melissa Etheridge Fights To Help Legalize Medical Marijuana In New York

One of my biggest pet peeves is when famous people are featured in the media talking about how much they love marijuana, yet do nothing to help support marijuana reform. It’s great that they can smoke marijuana in freedom, but that’s simply not the case for most ordinary people. That’s why when Miley Cyrus lights up a joint and says something about marijuana on stage, I don’t write an article about it. I don’t care about how much marijuana Justin Beiber smokes on his jet plane, or what Rihanna is doing with a blunt while on vacation. Until those celebrities

Parents Coalition For Rescheduling Medical Cannabis Ramps Up Efforts

Marijuana is a Schedule 1 substance according the federal government. Schedule 1 substances are considered to have ‘no medical value.’ Marijuana has medical value, proven by so many scientific research studies that it’s almost impossible to count them all. Many, many doctors have come out in support of medical marijuana after they saw first hand how well it works for some patients. The fact that the federal government’s official stance is that marijuana has no medical value is a slap in the face to science, logic, and compassion. Because marijuana is a Schedule 1 substance, research is limited. That is

Comprehensive Hospice To Provide Medical Marijuana To Patients

Comprehensive Hospice in Phoenix, Arizona is the first care provider in Arizona to offer medical marijuana to patients in its care. The new service has resulted in the staff of Comprehensive Hospice being licensed and trained to handle medical marijuana. I have heard of a few places in other states that allow medical marijuana to be consumed by patients being cared for by hospice providers, but this is the first time I have heard of hospice staff getting involved at this level. From ABC 15: “I’ve tried medications and that don’t help,” a patient named Samaniego said. Now, as a patient

Join New Approach Oregon On Thunderclap And Help Legalize Marijuana

New Approach Oregon has a campaign running on Thunderclap right now, and I encourage everyone to join it. I love social media activism, because it doesn’t cost any money! Broke bloggers unite! What is Thunderclap? Below is an explanation from Thunderclap: Social media is an easy way to say something, but it’s a difficult way to be heard. Thunderclap is the first-ever crowdspeaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be mass-shared, flash mob-style, so it rises above the noise of your social networks. By boosting the signal at the same

Windu OG Marijuana Strain Review And Pictures

Windu OG Cannabis Strain Review And Pics The Windu OG marijuana strain is a cross between Master Kush and Hindu Kush I’m told. The Windu OG strain is an Indica-dominant hybrid. As is the case with most Indicas, the Windu OG strain gives a great body high and calms the soul. After consuming some Windu OG, I was ready for a long nights sleep. The nugs look like green popcorn pieces, with some pieces being the size of golf balls. The strain I got was light green and covered in trichomes. I’ve heard of some samples out there that have purple

How To Stop Snails And Slugs From Eating Your Marijuana Plants

By Robert Bergman Snails, slugs and Cannabis We all know what they look like.  Slugs are slimy creatures about an inch long with long probing antennae.  Snails are slugs in a mobile home.  Their shells are spiral shaped.  The snail can completely withdraw inside the shell when threatened. You know you have a slug or snail problem, even if you don’t see them, by the tell-tale glistening silvery trail they leave behind when passing through the area.  These slimy nocturnal mollusks attack seedlings and carve holes in older leaves. Providing a mulch layer to house frogs and toads offers a

Do Health Insurance Companies Cover Medical Marijuana?

A question that I often get asked is ‘does my health insurance company cover medical marijuana?’ Unfortunately, the answer is no. Medical marijuana has been proven to be an effect form of treatment for numerous conditions. There are well over 20 states in America that allow some form of medical marijuana. Exactly how many states allow medical marijuana depends on your definition of a medical marijuana program. Some states allow many forms of medical marijuana, while other states only allow CBD-only forms of medical marijuana. In the case of Minnesota, smoking medical marijuana is prohibited – you have to vaporize
