In 2008 and overwhelming 97,800,000, or 39.8% of the American population age 16 and up, admitted to trying marijuana at least one time. There really isn’t a good reason that marijuana hasn’t been decriminalized in the United State.
First I will explain the medical benefits, then the financial benefits, and finally tie it all together to prove that marijuana should be legal. First it is important to understand how marijuana compares with other substances. Every year more and more American’s become addicted to smoking cigarettes. Cigarettes cause a variety of problems not limited to chronic lung disorder, stroke, and cancer. Despite the government’s efforts to curb tobacco abuse with a huge tax hike, cigarettes still kill 440,000 people a year. To put that in perspective, that is the equivalent of three 747 jets packed to full capacity crashing without a survivor EVERY DAY. But tobacco isn’t the only controlled substance annihilating the population daily. Alcohol abuse is a huge problem. It causes depressed immune system and liver failure while claiming 47,099 lives per year. In a recent study, 68% of the American public age 21 and up admitted to drinking at least once a month.
Cocaine is not legal in the US for obvious reasons but still claims 11187 lives yearly while causing seizures, cardiac arrest, and heart failure. Marijuana on the other hand causes daydreaming, dry mouth, and short term memory loss. Not only are these symptoms near harmless, marijuana has some seriously positive effects. It is prescribed as medication in the state of California to treat glaucoma, anxiety, cancer, and nausea. It seems pretty obvious that marijuana should not be illegal, but it is even more important to note how much the government is spending to repress it. Continue reading...
As some topics seem to explode, not much is said about natural mind-alterants. There are several different natural mind alterations and natural mood enhancers such as stimulants, mood brighteners, brain boosters, relaxants, inebriants, and aphrodisiacs.
Some effects are shared among the natural remedies but each remedy seems to have its very own unique attribute. Many are still in question in North America, especially the Western society. Natural mind alteration causes a confusion and resistance among some public and political representatives.
Stimulants, also known as excitants, are substances that increase action of the central nervous system. This leads to improved alertness, higher ability to concentrate, and increased physical and mental endurance. Caffeine is the most popular stimulant in the U.S. found in drinks such as coffee and soda. Several caffeinated herbs such as green tea have additional ingredients that prove to be a healthier source of caffeine. Even though ephedrine contains no caffeine, its effect on the brain is the same. Ephedrine is a bite more potent, and as a result a very controversial topic in the natural herb world. Certain amino acids, primarily phenylalanine and tyrosine, can also provide an energy lift. Continue reading...
To get a license of medical marijuana is very sensitive issue. Medical marijuana is very helpful who are suffering from glaucoma, epilepsy and cancer also. Before 30 years, medical marijuana was banned for everyone.
But now, still November 2010, fifteen states in United States that have produced use of it legal which are Alaska in 1998, Arizona in 2010, California in 1996, Colorado in 2000, Hawaii in 2000, Maine in 1999, Michigan in 2008, Montana in 2004, Nevada in 2000, New Jersey in 2010, New Mexico in 2007, Oregon in 1998, Rhode Island in 2006, Vermont in 2004, Washington in 1988 and recently Washington D.C. legalized its use in 2010.

There are many different ways to get medical marijuana license for every state. If you want to get a medical marijuana license then you need an application, a letter from your physician, your medical records, Photo ID. If you want medical marijuana license then I have some suggestions for you.
There were still 12 states that had pending legalization include Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Oklahoma and West Virginia. Continue reading...
One question I see around is will you test positive for second-hand hemp smoke. Yes, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the principle. If THC tetrahyrdacanibinal enters your body in any way or from any distance you risk it showing up on screens or tests. Risk is the keyword here, because you were maybe around someone smoking marijuana doesn’t mean it will show up 100% of the time. If your exposure was only a brief and was at a very low content meaning your friend was smoking pot across the room and you walked by in and out, it may not show up, but if you had a large enough exposure it can be noticed. If you are worried sick about testing positive it might help to know that there are many detox products available to get. I have not studied any of them in detail but
If you are worried sick about testing positive it might help to know that there are many detox products available to get. I have not studied any of them in detail but basically, a word of caution is not to rely on them. If you think it will help yes get some and use it but just understand sometimes tetrahyrdacanibinal has shown up still. Should be noted I guess that the detox products will only save you from the blood and urine drug tests and not the hair and nail.
Your doctor can tell if you had exposure to marijuana or smoked or ingested pot in any way by many means so here is some things you can try to do If the test is recent and upcoming try to delay it even for a day or two just to give that extra amount of time. If you are required to get drug screening try to get urine or blood rather than other methods as these two will be better and have a maximum of around 30 days that weed can show up.
Use a detox drink that can be bought almost anywhere. Many people say they work. Some of the products even claim to work that day. Let’s face it, drug screening or tests are scary and although you cannot change the fact that you have tetrahyrdacanibinal in your body because you smoked weed. You can try to change the results.

Now we have all been here, wanting to smoke a joint but just cant figure out how to. Either you always had someone rolling it for you or you always smoked bongs, there comes a time where you will be all by yourself with no bong and only weed and a couple papers. Here I will teach you how to roll a joint the easiest way there is.
Before we get started make sure you have a couple papers handy just in case you dont get it right the first time, dont worry though everyone needs to practice this at one point in their life, remember practice makes perfect.
First step your going to need to grind up your weed, since this is just a practice joint were not going to roll a joint thats huge nor is it a pinner joint either. So grind up about half a gram for now, grind up more if you think that its not enough. Now take your paper and hold it at the side where the sticky part is at the top like the picture on the left.
Now you want to fold the bottom part of the paper in half, line the bottom with the middle crease and fold it. This will make it easier for keeping the weed in the paper. Continue reading...
Now take your ground up weed and start sprinkling it in the paper til you have all your weed in it or until you have your desired amount in the paper. Now that fold that you made earlier will also help with this part too. Fold the bottom on the paper into the middle crease. Now turn the joint around where you can roll towards you instead of rolling away from your body. People may say that its rolling backward but if you just learning this is much easier for beginners.
Now that you have the bottom part rolled into the middle, slowly roll the joint up, its easier if you roll it up and down then back up again this will spread the weed evenly throughout the joint but be careful not to let too much weed fall out or you will end up with a pinner. After you have rolled it almost to the sticky part turn the joint around, so the sticky part faces you again, now lick the sticky part and finish rolling it up then light it up.
Remember if this is your very first time rolling a joint, it is probably going to take you a couple tries to get it right but don’t worry we have all been there before, no one was born with How to roll a joint in their head. If you cant roll a joint this way there are other methods you can try, like using a rolling machine which will help you in those desperate times. Continue reading...
4If a head-shop does not have them then head elsewhere as this is not a place you should do business with since they are not making the effort to bring you the best smoking equipment possible. Buying online is easy and secure, But the only problem is you will have to wait 2-4 weeks for delivery. This time delay is normal and to be perfectly honest “is well worth it” Because you have thousands of styles available to you at your fingertips. You will be able to buy the exact one you like at a reasonable price.
There are literally thousands of types and hundreds of bong manufacturers to choose from so when it comes to deciding what kind to buy, You may have to think a while. If you have never used a perc bong before…. you will be in the dark about which style you want or how it will affect your smoking experience, But worry not because no matter what kind you choose from the design of these kinds of bongs are very slimier involving the percolator part anyways.
Frost gr 3
This is an upgraded frost percolator bong. Featuring a wicked inset percolator and encased in 5 mm Pyrex glass this bong will make your friends jealous. Comes with a glass on glass bowl as well and of course free screens.
Not much different than a regular bong regarding purpose ( inhale smoke), But functionality and aesthetics are completely kicked up a notch. A percolator is an added chamber which is separated from the base by glass. Not only will water be present in the base, But also in the extra chamber. Some have one to even 4 or dare I say more each with water in them. Many manufacturers claim by having more smoke pass through more chambers; This will enhance your smoking experience by cooling and filtering the smoke. “Filtering, “the pl,” you say? Yes but not these plant junk that accompanies the THC or trying to hitch the ride with the THC. Obviously your goal isn’t to combine ones self with plant matter, But to simply get buzzed right?. By adding additional sections will allow the smoke to cool down and additional filtering will give you the best smoking experience from your bong. The filtering process can be noticed very well with a percolator bong that has 2 or more chambers. You will notice as you go up through the sections, Each chamber will have clearer water. What does this mean for you? It means a more enjoyable healthier smoke.
This percolator bong is one of the best in class for it’s price. Made of Pyrex glass of 5mm virtually unbreakable. Also included is the awesome bowl also made of Pyrex. If that wasn’t enough you also get free screens with your purchase and other goodies when you spend over 29.00 dollars.
So what is a percolator bong really?
A percolator bong is a regular smoking bong with added features, Giving some nice eye candy and adding filtration of the cannabis smoke. Some have stated they do not prefer smoking out of perc bongs because they are harder to pull through (Which is true), But this cannot and should not be slated across the whole industry, Because each manufacturer differs and each percolator bong on it’s own will be different ( Obviously they are not all the same). It is true that by adding a choke point via the Perc and then adding water on top will increase the effort of drawing smoke through it, But this should not make that big of a difference, Continue reading...
