Fighting Stigmatization Of Drug Users In Denver

By Phillip Smith In many ways, ours is harsh, moralistic, and punitive society. One need only look at our world-leading incarceration rate to see the evidence. We like to punish wrongdoers, and our conception of wrongdoers often includes those who are doing no direct wrong to others, but who are doing things of which we don’t approve. We label those people of whom we don’t approve. When it comes to drugs and drug use, the labels are all too familiar: Heroin users are “fucking junkies;” alcohol abusers are “worthless drunks;” [...]

New Milder Marijuana Edible Options For Rookies

By Alizeh Siddiqui According to 9news.com, marijuana product manufacturers in Colorado are making an effort to accommodate inexperienced adult marijuana consumers. Several companies have begun offering edible products with very small dosages of THC in order to allow people who have low tolerance or little experience with the substance to be able to use it without the potential for becoming overly impaired. This move comes following the launch of MPP’s “Consume Responsibly” campaign, which urges caution when consuming marijuana edibles and other products in order to avoid an unpleasant experience.

How To Dry Outdoor Marijuana Plants

Once the marijuana plants have been harvested, they have obviously ceased to produce new cannabinoids and resins. The main changes to the potency will be negative, but effective drying and storage can help mitigate the effects. Most of the weight contained in the plant is water and drying will cause the liquid to evaporate, ensuring that the marijuana will burn evenly and smoke well. lf you were impatient, and tried to quickly cut, dry, and smoke a bud prior to your harvest, you probably noticed how poorly it smoked. This [...]

In a debate last night between the two major party candidates in the hotly contested U.S. Senate race in Colorado, there was really only one issue Sen. Mark Udall (D) and Rep. Cory Gardner (R) agreed on: the federal government should get out of the way of the state’s legal cannabis industry. When debate moderator Brandon Rittiman of 9NEWS asked the candidates if they believed Colorado’s legal cannabis businesses should be granted an exemption from federal laws regarding marijuana, both candidates responded positively. “We need to work together as a [Congressional] [...]

Woman Used Marijuana To Treat Her Cancer 2,500 Years Ago

I absolutely hate cancer. Right now my dad is fighting prostate cancer, and my cousin’s grandma is fighting cancer in multiple parts of her body. Cancer is a horrible thing.

Fortunately the two relatives I previously named were open to the idea and are using medical marijuana to compliment their other treatments. Medical marijuana has been used for a long time to help treat cancer. In fact, it was recently discovered that a woman who lived 2,500 [...]

Can You Bring Your Medical Marijuana To Other States?

By John Knetemann Would you believe me if I told you that your medical marijuana permit or card is constitutionally valid in every state you enter? That if you have a medical card from Colorado that you have a constitutional right to bring your marijuana into Wyoming? You probably don’t believe me because it is only technically true, but not true in practice. If you are familiar with the Constitution of the United States you may be familiar with Article IV Section 1 of the Constitution, also known as the Full Faith and Credit [...]
