    I figured there would be adjustments to the laws to allow the police to arrest those who are driving whilst high on cannabis...

    What Type Of Stoner Are You Based On Your Zodiac?

    Aries, “The Group Dealer”
    So, we’re not saying you’re a literal dealer here but that you’re the person in the group who is always good. You’re a natural born leader, and there’s no better way to take charge of a smoke circle than to have it be your product the circle is smoking. Anytime someone suggest it’s time to blaze, you’re right there with your own little baggie, dictating exactly the best method by which you should smoke it, and ensuring that you get greens because Stone Etiquette clearly dictates that the weed owner always gets to smoke first, unless it’s like, somebody’s birthday or something.

    Taurus, “The Productive Stoner”
    Given your work ethic and stellar resume, most people would be surprised to learn that you’ve been high since roughly the year 2005. You’re the type of person who is somehow able to both live a productive life and smoke weed every day. You’re basically like a stoner unicorn. Budicorn, if you will. Just make sure you’re careful with your non-Taurus friends today. Sure, you can wake, bake, and give a killer presentation at work an hour later, but most people do not have this superpower. So when your friend tells you that they absolutely cannot smoke this bong and still be okay to meet their boyfriend’s parents in an hour, believe them. Laugh at them in private, but believe them.

    Gemini, “The Weed Innovator”
    Geminis are always looking for the next best thing, meaning that you are the person in your friend group who is always on top of the latest and greatest in weed trends. You’re the person who rolls up to the party with some kind of crazy-ass mega-vape, or actually said “yes” when your bestie’s weird cousin pulled out some giant rube-goldberg dabbing contraption and asked who wanted to smoke it. And sure, sometimes you get so high off these newfangled devices that you blackout and wake up on a marijuana farm in Mexico, but that’s all part of the fun, right? ….Right??

    Cancer, “The Active Stoner”
    As far as weed smoking goes, just zoning out to a Netflix and zoning back in 17 episodes later with no clue what the main character’s name is is just not your vibe. You much prefer getting high and doing something, even if that something is just folding socks for two hours or finally painting that one wall in your room (both of which you will have to completely do over BTW). The point is, you need to keep yourself busy while high to avoid going deep into your brain and remembering every single embarrassing thing you’ve done, starting with the time you peed during reading circle in Kindergarten, and ending 20-something years later with the anxiety attack you are about to have right now. Before packing up to go to your 420 celebration, make sure to pack some kind of crafty thing or snack recipe to keep you busy when the weed hits. Knitting and cookies are always a good option.

    Leo, “The Insta Stoner”
    Leo is “The Performer” of the zodiac, meaning that you really don’t really see a point in smoking unless people know you’re smoking, nah mean? So either because you have those privacy settings on lock, or because you DGAF, your Insta story is nugs on nugs on clouds of smoke. And on 420, your extra-ness is about to get a whole lot more extra, thanks to all of the weed related clothing items you’ve stocked up on all year just for the occasion. You’re no stranger to an amazing photo op, so be sure to head out into the best possible lighting to display your new “420 BLAZE IT” shirt across social media, where your friends will appreciate the subtle addition of not one, but two, lit blunts. Just make sure to double-check that you blocked your boss on everything.

    Virgo, “The Woodland Stoner”
    Virgos love nature, and what better way to really get in touch with nature than by smoking tree all day? Sometimes, you miss the good old days of sneaking out into the woods behind your parents’ house, crouching behind a bush, and smoking shitty dirt weed out of an apple. Now that all your friends have their own residences, it’s all nice-ass bongs and sitting comfortably on a couch. Lame. If you really want to honor your Virgo spirit this 420, roll yourself up a fat J (with those herbal, sustainable papers of course) and head for the trees. If you can’t find any friends who want to join you (allergy season, etc…) just take a couple of puffs of the dank shit and try talking to a nearby squirrel. You two will be besties in no time.

    Libra, “The Social Stoner”
    As far as weed goes, it’s something you prefer to do in the company of friends, meaning 420 is the perfect day for you to get really into it. While sitting around alone in your underwear stoned out of your mind seems pretty fucking boring to you, sitting around in your underwear stoned out of your mind with your friends sounds amazing. Maybe you’re not smoking weed on the daily, but you do maintain a small stash so that you can be ready whenever the opportunity for a smoke circle presents itself, and you’ll never say no to something that is being passed around a group. Basically, your ideal smoke situation is every episode of That 70s Show, Ashton Kutcher and all.

    Scorpio, “The Philosopher Stoner”
    Scorpios are intense. This you already know from having to be yourself. As a stoner, Scorpios are the people who want to get high and think about shit. Lots of shit. Like how the Earth is just like…hanging there…in space. They’re the ones who take one bong rip, look to their left and ask, “How do we know that the blue I’m seeing is the same as the blue you’re seeing?” You’re also not opposed to just sitting back and watching Planet Earth for five hours. The Earth is fucking crazy, man.

    Sagittarius, “The Classic Stoner”
    Sags are notorious for their great senses of humor without the aid of a drug that is literally known for making everything hilarious. Get a few puffs in you, and you can’t help but turn into the classic image of a stoner, rolling on the floor laughing your ass off at something that you can’t really explain to everybody else. Sags are also intensely curious, so weed will open you up to all the classic stoner dilemmas like “If someone could tell you the exact date and time of your death, would you want to know?” and “Do I hate you because you’re fat, or are you fat because I hate you?” Also, you’re going to want to keep some eyedrops with you. Your eyes look fucking terrible.

    Capricorn, “The Cannabis Connoisseur”
    As a Capricorn, you like to know everything about everything. So once you get into weed, you like really get into weed. You’re the type of person who can look at a nug and tell you its entire life story. You know every strain so well that when your dealer tries to sell you some bullshit called “Blueberry Kush Dog” you’ll take one look at it and say “If this was really Blueberry Kush Dog, it would have defined nugs, visible crystales, and a defined, fruity odor. This strand you have here has an earthy aroma, strands of red, and is sticky AF which leads me to believe it’s Girl Scout Cookies. I’ll take an ounce and don’t ever come around here without knowing your shit again.”

    Aquarius, “The Marijuana Activist”
    Legalize it! Aquarians are known for their social activism and liberal agenda (how you holding up these days, BTW?) making you the type of stoner who get like, legitimately heated when talking about marijuana legalization. You’ll sign any Change.Org petition that rolls your way regarding legal weed, and one of the surest ways to get your vote is to put medical marijuana on the ballot. You’ve probably been to Colorado like 20 times, and had no problem telling your horrified grandmother over Thanksgiving Dinner about how Denver made so much money on legal weed taxes they were able to invest more money into public schools (that’s true). And don’t even get you started on the way marijuana was used to help bolster the prison industrial system—seriously, don’t get started. Just relax enjoy the holiday for once, Aquarius. It’ll give you the energy you need to make the giant pot leaf protest banner you’ve always dreamed of.

    Pisces, “The Festival Stoner”
    Pisces are the artists of the zodiac, so you’re basically a natural weed lover. It like, gets you in the zone and shit. Pisces are also music lovers, meaning that once you toke you want nothing more than to put on your fav album and just like, chill. And what place combines rampant marijuana use, artistic expression in the form of body paint and glitter, and basically non-stop access to your favorite musical acts? Festivals, duh! Pisces are perfect for the festival scene. In fact, they thrive. Coachella? You’re there. Both weekends. Bonnaroo? Fuck it you can hang with the hipsters for a weekend.

    Study on cannabis chemical as a treatment for pancreatic cancer may have 'major impact,' Harvard researcher says
    The specific drug, called FBL-03G, is a derivative of a cannabis “flavonoid” — the name for a naturally-occurring compound found in plants, vegetables and fruits which, among other purposes, provides their vibrant color. Flavonoids from cannabis were discovered by a London researcher named Marilyn Barrett in 1986, and were later found to have anti-inflammatory benefits.

    But while scientists long suspected that cannabis flavonoids may have therapeutic potential, the fact that they make up just 0.14 percent of the plant meant that researchers would need entire fields of it to be grown in order to extract large enough quantities. That changed recently when scientists found a way to genetically engineer cannabis flavonoids — making it possible to investigate their benefits.

    Enter the researchers at Dana-Farber, who decided to take the therapeutic potential of one of these flavonoids, FBL-03G, and test it on one of the deadliest cancers through a lab experiment. The results, according to Wilfred Ngwa, PhD, an assistant professor at Harvard and one of the study’s researcher, were “major.”

    “The most significant conclusion is that tumor-targeted delivery of flavonoids, derived from cannabis, enabled both local and metastatic tumor cell kill, significantly increasing survival from pancreatic cancer,” Ngwa tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “This has major significance, given that pancreatic cancer is particularly refractory to current therapies.”

    Ngwa says that the study is the first to demonstrate the potential new treatment for pancreatic cancer. But on top of successfully killing those cells, the scientist found FBL-03G capable of attacking other cancer cells — which was startling even to them. “We were quite surprised that the drug could inhibit the growth of cancer cells in other parts of the body, representing metastasis, that were not targeted by the treatment,” says Ngwa. “This suggests that the immune system is involved as well, and we are currently investigating this mechanism.”

    The significance of that, says Ngwa, is that, because pancreatic cancer is often diagnosed in later stages, once it has spread, and the flavonoids seem to be capable of killing other cancer cells, it may mean the life expectancy of those with the condition could increase.

    “If successfully translated clinically, this will have major impact in treatment of pancreatic cancer,” says Ngwa.

    So what if rolls of pot smoke is coming out of one's car, like in a Cheech and chong movie?...lol

    Judges Agree That Weed Odor Doesn't Justify Police Searches

    Now that the vast majority of US states have some form of legal cannabis, judges across the country are ruling that the odor of cannabis is no longer probable cause for a police search.

    This week, two judges in two different states ruled that police can no longer use the smell of cannabis alone as probable cause for a search.

    In Massachusetts, the state Supreme Judicial Court (SJC) ruled that the odor of unburnt cannabis does not constitute probable cause for a search. This ruling was handed down in the case of Gregory Long, who was arrested in 2017 and charged with co-running an illegal cannabis grow hidden in an Amherst warehouse.

    After raiding the illegal grow-op, police charged Long with trafficking over 50 pounds of weed. In his defense, Long's attorneys argued that police had no legitimate way to identify whether “the odor emanating from the windowless, 11,000-square-foot, cinder-block warehouse was the product of the legal marijuana use, possession, or cultivation,” according to the Boston Globe.

    The court agreed with the defense, ruling that “our appellate courts consistently have held that the odor of marijuana, burnt or unburnt, without more, is insufficient to establish probable cause that a crime is being committed.”

    Cannabis butt lube is coming!...:eek:


    CBD Butt Lube Is Coming, and There’s Nothing You Can Do to Stop It

    [​IMG]

    Cannabis-infused lubes may be one of the most tantalizing innovations the weed industry has ever produced. And now there's a lubricant specifically for your rear-end, appropriately titled "Boof."

    There’s a new cannabis-infused sexual lubricant, and it’s made to go right into your keester.

    Fort Troff, a company that designs sex products and toys for gay men, recently partnered with cannabis-sex-lube manufacturer Foria to create “Boof,” a CBD-infused “butt shot” that promises to help bottoms and switches “take XL cocks and more.”

    However, there is still disagreement regarding CBD’s efficacy when it’s taken alone. A growing body of research suggests that CBD works best when combined with THC – the intoxicating component of cannabis – which means lubes that contain THC may ultimately offer far more promise than Boof’s “butt shots.” Besides, CBD lubes, like pretty much every other CBD product, won’t get anyone buzzed, especially in the nether regions.

    There’s some evidence that CBD can help people relax and stave off stress, two excellent ways to facilitate great sex. And there’s still more evidence that CBD can alleviate pain and inflammation, two (usually) undesired consequences of all-night bedroom romps.

    Is thc the same as lsd? Does anyone know the chemical formula for tetra-hydra-cannabinol? Trying to figure out if the plant is basically laced hemp because of its smell. This took bravery to say... I think most plants are real plants... but some may have been synthesized 2000-3000 years ago...

    The chemical Tag you are looking for is C21H30O2 tetrahydrocannabinol

    [​IMG]

    It's interesting you bring this Up, As THC Is a mild derivative of Acid. However, you can't risk using synthetics For instance. Here we have C24H23NO Otherwise known as H2.

    [​IMG]

    " I didn't use to know a lot of chemistry, It turns out, It's pretty handy in physics and math. lol"

    H2, The Synthetic Cannabinoid, Notice the very slight lattice differences, Even such a slight change can be devastating, THe synthetic is known to change the rhythm of the heartbeat and sometimes cause the organ to even stop. Dangerous stuff.

    chemical forumla for YHC - Google Search

    I recommend not tampering with tetrahydrocannabinol, Synthetics have proven dangerous and even deadly in some cases, It's best to get some real herb and role some up. I'm not saying it can't be synthesized, I'm just saying, It's almost never as pleasant when one does brother, It's hard to trick the brain with synthetics. One can always tell and it's never quite as good.

    So how do we know the tetra-hydra-cannabinol wasn't synthetic in the first place and it wasn't added to the original plant, meant to grow in accordance? My experience with marijuana is that it caused a lot of paranoia, after some time smoking it. I've also heard the hospitalization rates went way up.

    To some extent, it is "engineered" The weed we smoke to get high today, Didn't always exist in the powerful forms it does today, It's been bread over the last hundred years or so to be more potent. But the main way to look at this is, Naturally grown weed that was properly cultivated indoors or a greenhouse so there was no need to use pesticides, That stuff is safe and sports a nifty Zero Death toll, While synthetic marijuana is still racking up the coffins. The way to know that weed is natural and not tampered with is something one learns from experience. An experienced smoker can tell if his weed has been laced with something. Be cautious, Some people don't care what they sell you, or how it affects you, The safest way to buy weed is the same way it always has been, A dispensary, Or a trusted source. None of those shady, Meet me in such and such parking lot for the exchange BS, If you have to do that, And you can't trust the source, Don't do it. :) And here are some analytics about Weed, And weed Death, Here's How Many People Fatally Overdosed On Marijuana Last Year | HuffPost You will note that in recorded history no one has ever died from completely natural non laced weed. If someone dies from smoking weed, It is always because they smoked something that was laced.
