Do Women Build Up Marijuana Tolerance Faster Than Men?

Some of the hardest hitting marijuana consumers that I know are women. I know a few women that can out smoke any guy I know. They can eat more edibles, they can smoke more flower, and they can take more dab hits. For a long time I just thought that they were more hardcore than my guy friends. It turns out, science may be playing a role in their tolerance level. Per the Huffington Post: Researchers at Washington State University have found evidence indicating that females may build up a [...]

'The 420 Games' Planned For Golden Gate Park

I have always wanted to see a marijuana based competition. I am a big fan of the movie ‘Beer Fest.’ At the end of that movie the main characters of the movie run into Willie Nelson who was supposed to be meeting up with Cheech and Chong for ‘Weed Fest.’ I always thought there would be a follow up movie, complete with marijuana competitions similar to the beer competitions in ‘Beer Fest.’ Unfortunately a movie like that hasn’t been released yet. I was even more hopeful that a real marijuana [...]

Florida Medical Marijuana Initiative Still Leads In Latest Poll

It wasn’t that long ago that a poll was released showing that the Florida medical marijuana initiative was winning by a landslide. A poll was released earlier this year showing the initiative winning 88% percent of the estimated vote. While the lead has shrunk in recent polls, the latest poll still shows the initiative winning. And not only is it winning, it’s getting more than the required 60% ‘yes’ votes to pass on Election Day. Per Public Policy Polling: Florida’s medical marijuana amendment is still receiving more than the 60% [...]

Nevada District Attorney Wants To Change Marijuana DUI Laws

Per se marijuana DUI laws fly in the face of science. Marijuana can stay in someone’s system for over a month. So if someone is pulled over and it’s determined that there is marijuana in their system, in no way does that automatically mean that they were under the influence when they were operating the motor vehicle. All it means is that the person consumed marijuana at least once in the last month. DUI laws involving marijuana need to be impairment based. There needs to be additional evidence that someone was [...]

Why I Support Marijuana Legalization And Regulation

I had an interesting talk with an anti-marijuana fan recently. The person, unaware of my blog or frequency of marijuana consumption, asked me how I felt about Oregon Measure 91, which would legalize and regulate marijuana in Oregon if voters approve it during the 2014 Election. I told him that I planned on voting ‘yes’ on Measure 91. That’s all I said. Yet, somehow he acted like I said all kinds of things because he went off on me. He claimed that I only want to legalize marijuana because I [...]

When Is The Best Time To Harvest Outdoor Marijuana Plants?

Finally, after months of preparation, work, and careful maintenance, the time to harvest your marijuana will arrive. Harvesting is not as easy a task as just cutting down your marijuana plants, waiting a week or so for them to dry, and then getting as high as a kite. There are still signs to watch for and critical mistakes to avoid, or you risk nullifying all of your hard work over the preceding months. The most important of these is getting the timing right. Watching the weather and paying close attention [...]

Santa Fe County Commission Votes To Put Marijuana Decriminalization On Ballot

New Mexico is seeing a lot of local marijuana reform victories lately. Recently the Santa Fe City Council voted to decriminalize marijuana, after activists gathered enough signatures to put the issue to a vote. Albuquerque was about to do the same thing, until marijuana hating mayor Richard Berry vetoed it. Mayor Berry used the ‘it is illegal federally argument’ when vetoing the measure. Apparently Mayor Berry wasn’t paying attention during civics class when they were explaining the difference between cities, counties, states, and the federal government. Santa Fe County Commissioners [...]

Jodie Emery Files To Run For Federal Liberals In Canada

Jodie Emery has been one of my heroes for a long time. She fights hard for marijuana reform, even when it isn’t easy. Even when she had to fly from Canada to visit her wrongfully incarcerated husband in America, she was still able to be one of the most active marijuana reformers on the planet. Canadian politics are heating up, as Jodie Emery has announced that she is running for office. Per the National Post: Jodie Emery, the wife of notorious marijuana activist Marc Emery, officially filed her nomination papers [...]

Alaskan Mayors Donate To Anti-Marijuana Legalization Campaign

Alaska voters will get the chance to vote on marijuana legalization this November during the 2014 Election. Alaska is joined by Oregon, Washington D.C., and multiple cities in Michigan and Maine in voting on marijuana legalization this year. Out of all the local and statewide elections involving marijuana legalization, Alaska is the only one I have seen trailing in the polls so far. With that being said, polling is very hard to do in Alaska due to the spread out population, rugged terrain, and size of the state. The opposition [...]

Albuquerque Mayor Blocks Marijuana Decriminalization From The Ballot

Marijuana decriminalization was recently passed by the Santa Fe, New Mexico City Council. Rather than arrest people and jail people for marijuana possession, people will now be fined $25 for possessing personal amounts of marijuana. A similar proposal was supposed to be on the ballot in Albuquerque, New Mexico this November. The Albuquerque City Council voted to put the measure on the ballot for voters to decide the issue. Unfortunately, the mayor of Albuquerque, Richard Berry, decided that the democratic process wasn’t good enough and blocked the measure from being [...]
