Missouri Rep Tells Marijuana Patient To "Get A Job And Get Off Dope"

A Missouri State Representative named Bill Lant is a Republican who represents Missouri’s 159th District.  It’s a small, rural district dominated, if you can call it that, by the little town of Anderson, population 1,998. Aarden Gross is a 27-year-old constituent of Bill Lant’s, just 26 miles away in tinier unincorporated Rocky Comfort.  Aarden is interested in having Missouri’s marijuana laws reformed and decided to email his state representative, Bill Lant, to express his feelings. Aarden’s not a professional lobbyist or even an amateur activist.  His writing skills aren’t the best and his emails are a bit long.  But he

Eric Holder 'Satisfied' With Lack of Action On Rescheduling Marijuana

Recently Eric Holder was quoted as saying that he would be willing to work with Congress to look into rescheduling marijuana. Currently marijuana is a Schedule 1 substance according to the Controlled Substances Act. This means that according to the federal government, marijuana has no medical value, which is a slap in the face to science and logic. There have been petitions, letters from elected officials, and countless other attempts to get the Obama Administration to get on the right side of history and science on this issue, but the administration has failed to do anything except stand in the

DFW NORML Unveils First Pro Marijuana Billboard In North Texas

DFW NORML is one of, if not the most active NORML chapter in America. I have been a big fan of their work even before I co-founded this blog in 2010. Texas is in desperate need of marijuana reform, and DFW NORML is leading the charge. Below is information about a billboard that they just launched in Texas, which is a strategy that I hope other chapters do too: The Dallas / Fort Worth chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (DFW NORML) is unveiling what might be called a “sign of the times” for marijuana legalization

  Blueberry General When growing Blueberry marijuana seeds, you’re going to end up with plants that are pleasing to the eye. You’ll also wind up with a smoke that is pleasing to the mind and body. The name, of course, comes from the “blueberry” flavors and aromas that the plant can produce. It also comes from the way that the plant grows, with distinct blues by the end of its life cycle. It comes from several different varieties including some Afghani and Thai ones. The indica-dominant hybrid is a favorite of many growers and users.

Enactment Of Medical Marijuana Laws Not Associated With Higher Crime Rates

By Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director The enactment of medicinal cannabis laws is not associated with any rise in statewide criminal activity and may even be related to reductions in incidences of violent crime, according to data published online in the journal PLoS ONE. Researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas tracked crime rates across all 50 states between the years between 1990 and 2006, a time period during which 11 states legalized marijuana for medical use. Authors reviewed FBI data to determine whether there existed any association between the passage of medicinal cannabis laws and varying rates of statewide criminal activity,

AC Greebs Smoking Steel Is A Must For Gravity Bong Hits

If you have followed The Weed Blog for awhile, then you know that I love a good gravity bong hit. In Oregon, my friends and I take ‘liters’ as we call them. It’s not the same as the traditional water-in-a-bucket style where you cut the soda bottle in half. We merely poke a hole in the bottom, which is much easier to operate, and the hits are massive. A lot of people refer to them as ‘aqua lungs’ or ‘waterfalls.’ For a step-by-step tutorial on how to make one, check out this link here. If you are like me, you

White Widow Feminised Marijuana Seeds Review

The best marijuana I ever smoked was a White Widow strain that my friend obtained in the late 90’s. He had to pay $25 per gram, and only got three grams of White Widow, but it was the best purchase he ever made in his life. The White Widow nugs were so coated with crystals that it looked like the nugs were dipped in sugar, then sprayed with that ‘fake snow in a can’ people use on their Christmas trees. I will never forget the first hit that I took of White Widow. Literally as soon as the smoke traveled
