By TheJointBlog.Com A new study conducted by researchers at the Roskamp Institute in Florida, and published in the journal Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience, has found that cannabis can slow the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease, and may in fact be able to halt it entirely.

Super Lemon Haze Cannabis Strain Pictures And Review

Super Lemon Haze Marijuana Strain Pictures And Review The Super Lemon Haze is a superstar.

Don't Let Marijuana Be Taxed To Death In Colorado

One of my biggest fears about marijuana legalization at the state level was that it would come with such a hefty tax that it would never reach it’s full potential. Marijuana legalization opponents know this, and know that the battle isn’t over. We need to keep fighting. Below is a petition urging Boulder, Colorado leaders to not double tax marijuana. I encourage everyone to sign it to help send a message that this is not what was intended when voters passed Amendment 64. You can sign the petition here: Mayor Appelbaum and Members of the Boulder City Council; When the

Advocates Appeal Marijuana's Federal Status To U.S. Supreme Court

I received the following press release from Americans for Safe Access late yesterday. It’s far from guaranteed to work, but it’s a step worth taking: Washington, DC – Medical marijuana patient advocacy group Americans for Safe Access (ASA) filed a petition for writ of certiorari today with the U.S. Supreme Court to appeal a January Circuit Court decision that maintained marijuana’s current federal status as one of the most dangerous drugs with no medical value. In the widely watched case ASA v. Drug Enforcement Administration, petitioners are challenging an unreasonable and unprecedented standard set by the District of Columbia Circuit, which also creates a federal appellate

Michigan House Approves Welfare Drug Test Bill

By Phillip Smith The Republican-controlled Michigan House Friday approved a bill that would allow for the suspicion-based drug testing of welfare recipients.

Court Rules Woman Can Keep Medical Marijuana, But The Sheriff Doesn't Want To Give It Back

The Arizona Supreme Court recently ruled that a medical marijuana patient whose medicine is taken by police is entitled to get it back if the patient was determined to have been in legal possession of it at the time of the interaction. That’s what happened to California medical marijuana patient Valerie Okun, whose medicine was taken nearly two years ago near Yuma, Arizona (Arizona recognizes out of state patients). She was never prosecuted, and wanted her medicine back. The Arizona Supreme Court ruled in her favor, saying that the police need to return her medicine. Case closes right? Wrong. The

Rain-Soaked And Oil-Soaked At The 710 Cup In Denver

I’m in Denver for something called “The 710 Cup”.  It is a festival for the celebration of cannabis concentrates, which are the extracts of oil from the cannabis plant.  Concentrates are, as the name implies, highly potent forms of marijuana, known also as hash oil or “errl”.  (See, OIL rotated 180 degrees reads 710, clever!) However, the 710 Cup was blasted with a July monsoon leaving most of the vendors to tarp up or pack up.  The collected oil aficonados, or “dabbers”, all rushed inside one of the two pavilions set up for the event.  Shoulder to shoulder, rain-soaked attendees
