Roseanne’s Marijuana Episode Part 2

More Parents Smoking Marijuana Around Children, Study Says « CBS Denver

NEW YORK – As regulations crack down on the dangers of cigarette smoke, a new study is warning that many parents are undoing all of this progress by exposing their children to secondhand marijuana smoke. A study says more parents are smoking marijuana around their children. Researchers point to the decriminalization of marijuana for the change. The study warns that children are being exposed to more secondhand smoke because of higher marijuana use. According to researchers from Columbia University, the number of cigarette-smoking parents who said they used marijuana increased from 11 percent in 2002 to over 17 percent in 2015. 

Researchers found that tobacco cigarette use has fallen by seven percent during the decade-long survey. Some of the credit for the decline likely goes to stricter laws on cigarettes, which have reduced the places smokers can light up and cut down on nicotine within the products. The study adds that as tobacco laws increase, states have loosened the laws governing marijuana use. Dr. Karen Wilson says the ability for more parents to smoke pot legally could create a dangerous environment for children breathing in secondhand smoke. 

Whether marijuana smoke is as addictive as tobacco smoke may be up for debate, but the damage from inhaling it has already been studied. A recent study by biologist Matthew Springer found that marijuana smoke is three times worse for the arterial walls than cigarette smoke.

The Inner Monologue of a Guy Smoking Weed for the First Time

Every time a group of men under the age of 25 gathers for long periods of time, you can bet your last two cents that one of them will be smoking weed. Whether it’s a road trip, a concert, or a day spent playing Halo 3, someone is eventually going to bust out the green. Most of your group is used to this, but there’s always the odd time a fresh face appears who may not be as chronic-minded as the rest of you, so you, being the good host that you are, decide to let the newbie take a hit of the bong, just so he doesn’t feel left out. The following is exactly what’s going through his mind as he smokes weed for the first time. Huh, I thought it would look more like those leaves I’ve seen on Dr. 

Dre albums; this stuff just looks like little nuggets. Holy shit look at that stucco ceiling, it’s got like faces in it. I should say something, I’ve been quiet for like 20 minutes looking at this ceiling. Okay well let’s take a walk to see what this guy has in his kitchen. I’ve been leaning on this kitchen counter for like 5 minutes, the nachos are starting to mock me from the bowl. 

WAIT! Why haven’t I ever seen this before, raw nachos are just chips! Note to self: tell everyone you know about the nacho fraud. I should see what everyone else is doing, maybe they want some nachos. I really think weed makes me smarter, I just talked in-depth to that guy about how Iron Man could totally beat up Batman in a fight.

So your done doing your very first harvest on your produce, you harvested all of your buds and now you are all left with a huge pile of leaves. There are a few ways you could use your cannabis leaves after your harvesting of buds is done. If you want to smoke your leaves yes you can, it can give you a slight buzz but wont get you that mind bending experience like buds can do. The problem with leaves is that you cant just get rid of them for they have little THC left in them too, they are too precious just to throw away. So thinking of alternative ways to get rid of the leaves from your harvest is to make extra money out of your leaves. 

One good way to do this is to make cannabutter out of your leaves. Of course your leaves, mash your leaves into small bits as you place your butter into your pan. Let it sit beside the butter as it melts and let the THCs transfer from the leaves to the butter, just let it simmer for about thirty minutes. After you have done this you can now use a sieve in get those green bits out of your butter, or you can just leave them be. After youre done with the combining of leaves and butter, let it sit for an hour before using it. 

On the other hand you can always make hash from your cured leaves and make extra bucks from pure resin. There are a dozen ways on how to use your cannabis leaves just after harvesting, just look on the right places to have guides on what to do.

Best Weed Movies of All Time

Today, stoner movies is a separate subgenre in cinematography. The image of cannabis culture differs from movie to movie-sometimes stoners are represented in a positive way, sometimes they are shown comically. Either way, many movies that revolve around people smoking weed are funny and professionally made. Reefer Madness may be the first movie to not only picture the use of marijuana but to be also completely dedicated to this topic. The movie tells us a story of innocent teenagers, marijuana dealers, crazy parties with jazz music, and, of course, reefers-weed cigarettes. 

Though the movie’s depiction of the cannabis community may be highly exaggerated and shown only from a stereotypical perspective, Reefer Madness is a movie that every cannabis enthusiast should watch. It is a movie where academics and weed are combined in 90 minutes of fun. Alongside the famous comedy actors, the movie stars Snoop Dogg as a scavenger smoker. Harold & Kumar is not just a stoner movie that you can watch once and forget about. Despite the ongoing debates about the quality of the movie, the series has been a financial success. 

This duo is famous for their hippie movies and stand-up routine. The duo starred in more than nine movies that were recognized as the most iconic stoner comedies including Up in Smoke, Cheech&Chong’s Next Move, Nice Dreams, Cheech&Chong’s Animated Movie, and many others.

Podcast: Bill Nye sciences the heck out of marijuana for Netflix

Venerable entertainer and mechanical engineer Bill Nye – famous for his schtick as ‘the science guy’ – returns to Netflix Dec. 29 for season two of his Emmy-nominated series Bill Nye Saves the World. The season debuts with an episode centered around marijuana. I also didn’t really know the history of marijuana becoming schedule 1 and I didn’t really know how the medical profession feels about marijuana. People use marijuana for everything medically and there’s questions about how it affects you when you’re young, like drinking like alcohol. So we investigated this and the upshot is if anybody tells you he knows all about marijuana and how it works he really doesn’t. 

You would buy and sell the marijuana species as the reefer of the realm. There’s no question that men’s sperm is affected by marijuana smoking. I will say also as a taxpayer and voter I hope it doesn’t become so readily accepted that people smoke all the time the way they used to smoke cigarettes and the smell of marijuana smoke is in everything the way it used to be when I was growing up. It’s not detectable in your blood whereas marijuana is in your blood apparently for two weeks at least. In California, there’s marijuana dispensaries everywhere. 

We’re passing laws or not passing laws because of presumptions and assumptions about marijuana – some of which have just got to be wrong. Whereas marijuana laws are passed because of certainty about the science of marijuana.

mi amor, porque te vas – dj hatfield

It turned out that the song the faki mentioned was not an uruguayan song after all, but one that had shared meaning in the context of the relationships that formed in port. True to form, he can weave the hook into an evening of ‘amis songs as he plays Am until dawn. Once one sings the hook, more than a few other people will recognize it, this song about a boat leaving uruguay. He sings part of the song as he remembers the lyrics, the words about a boat leaving. Curious about the song, i later discover that the song as he sings it is a parody of an internationally popular song with spanish, french, and english language versions. 

The song was first performed by jeanette, a singer active in spain in the mid-1970s. The song became popular in 1976 because of its appearance in a critically acclaimed film. Because w faki never mentions that the song circulated on the radio or on recordings-odd, because he does talk about listening to vinyl records and consuming music in live music venues in capetown-he is likely only to have heard it performed live in uruguay. The musical form is compelling, but the song circulated among ‘amis musicians in the context of the far ocean fishing trade. Today, it still signals the cosmopolitan outlook of men who took to the boats. 

As the faki plays the song, he tells me about performing at a club in capetown. A sonic trace of his travels, it also indicates the circuits in which ‘amis musicians absorbed latin musics.

Governor Deal: No medical marijuana for AIDS patients

State Rep. Allen Peake’s medical marijuana bill is the talk of this year’s legislative session-well, along with this other little bill that’s gotten a little press. Heck, the Macon Republican’s proposed legislation is literally House Bill 1. We want the cannabis oil to be available for the children. I think law enforcement and district attorneys that have expressed opinions on this believe that if it’s not drafted very, very tightly and can’t be enforced with certainty, it lends itself to a situation where we cannot control it I share those concerns. 

That’s why it is difficult to draft this kind of legislation. The law enforcement and district attorneys that Deal is referring to are the Prosecuting Attorneys Council and the Georgia Sheriffs Association, who have voiced their objections to the longer list of conditions. He pumped his brakes a bit now that the governor has had his say on the list. I’m very confident that the rigorous legislative process will provide a final version of HB 1 that will bring relief from pain and suffering for many Georgia citizens that are hurting, and meets the needed criteria to obtain the signature of Governor Deal. I wholeheartedly share the Governor’s concerns that we not pass a medical cannabis oil bill that could lead to abuse of the medicine, and we will be working with our law enforcement officials to insert safeguards in the legislation that protect against potential abuse.

Medical Marijuana Dispensary Licenses Delayed in Ohio

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy said that it has delayed the announcement of medical marijuana dispensary licenses for the state. The board had expected to make the information available on Wednesday and name as many as 56 licensees in 28 geographic areas. State regulators now expect to award provisional licenses to successful applicants at its monthly meeting scheduled for June 4-6. Cameron McNamee, a spokesman for the board, said in an email that it is taking longer than expected to process the applications. In November of 2015, Ohio voters rejected a ballot proposal that would have legalized cannabis for medical and adult use. 

Only one year later, support for medical marijuana in the state had swelled. Under the law, patients with one or more of 21 serious medical conditions will be allowed to use medical cannabis. The law also bans home cultivation of medical marijuana. The Board of Pharmacy plans for patient registration to begin in July. The Board of Pharmacy’s delay may be an attempt to avoid problems similar to those experienced with the issuance of licenses to cannabis cultivators. 

A spokeswoman for the Board of Commerce, Stephanie Gostomski, said the board approved applications based on data provided. All provisional licenses would be verified before they became permanent.
