The nearly $4 billion US medical and legal weed industries use ‘lots’ of electricity, and as East coast and midwest states change dated laws the consumption of electricity will skyrocket. Our electrical grid infrastructure in America is a mess, even inferior to some third-world nations.

To Roll Or Not To Roll

There is no shortage of ways to consume cannabis. Bowls, blunts, brownies, pumpkins, apples, vaporizers, bongs, joints, the list keeps getting bigger as creative and often unprepared consumers invent even more methods. Hey look, there is a pop can over there. In my opinion a joint burns better, retains flavor longer, and allows you to best control your lung capacity. …

Billionaire Trucking Mogul Hijacks Michigan Medical Marijuana Act

Senator Steve Bieda, testifies before the House Criminal Justice committee 9/17/14, to discuss bipartisan legislation he and Senator Rick Jones (left) have put forward which would criminalize “cyber revenge”. Senate Bills 924 and 925  would make it illegal to post sexually explicit images on the Internet without the consent of an individual, but also including images given through consent within the confines of a private relationship.

However judges, prosecutors and police, unwilling to give up control and revenue, steered the law elsewhere. These three groups, the Axis Powers, knowingly and purposely sidestepped the will of 63% …

Instead of explaining the long history of this plant, and its acceptance as a medicinal and recreational vise for thousands of years, or tally the number of deaths attributed to cannabis (zero), I can only conclude that the prohibition of cannabis is one of the biggest scams perpetrated against society.

Marijuana Prohibition: The Union Versus The Confederacy

The Confederate flag is seen next to the monument of the victims of the Civil War in Columbia, South Carolina on June 20, 2015. The racially divisive Confederate battle flag flew at full-mast despite others flying at half-staff in South Carolina after the killing of nine black people in an historic African-American church in Charleston on June 17. Dylann Roof, the 21-year-old white male suspected of carrying out the Emanuel African Episcopal Methodist Church bloodbath, was one of many southern Americans who identified with the 13-star saltire in red, white and blue. AFP PHOTO/MLADEN ANTONOV        (Photo credit should read MLADEN ANTONOV/AFP/Getty Images)

Much debate currently exists around the Confederate flag. Opponents claim the flag is simply a symbol of hate and that it has no place in society, while a handful of supporters view the Confederate flag to be a symbol of southern culture. I, for one, do not believe the rebel flag should ever fly on government property, however, an individual …

Can marijuana cure osteoporosis?

michiganpatient

Yes! The active component of marijuana, Delta(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol, activates the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors, thus mimicking the action of endogenous cannabinoids. CB1 is predominantly neuronal and mediates the cannabinoid psychotropic effects. CB2 is predominantly expressed in peripheral tissues, mainly in pathological conditions.
