Should Marijuana be Legalized

CannaSpeak - News from across the internet on cannabis -  Cannabis connections for information about cultivation and cannabis culture - Where to find best medical cannabis treatment and supplies 7

by Charlie Naylor,

I believe that marijuana should be legalized. I believe that if the government did so the National debt would be greatly decreased by the money it would make from the taxation of marijuana and also from the decrease in law enforcement and jail cost that is caused by the “criminal” aspects of marijuana. I believe that the use of marijuana would be more likely to go down than up with the legalization of it. I believe this because half the reason some people use it is the appeal of doing something illegal. I think that marijuana is no more harmful that alcohol or nicotine and these are perfectly legal “drugs” in today’s society.You have never heard of someone overdosing on Pot but you do hear of people get deathly ill from alcohol poisoning. People all over the country whine and complain about the use of Pot but at the same time hold George Washington, Ben Franklin, and the rest of our founding fathers in such high regard. Do these people not realize that these men both grew and used this “drug” they hold in such disgust.

Today you see commercials on the TV about how bad marijuana is and how it impairs your judgment and can cause car accidents. A researcher at the University of Toronto by the name of Alison Smiley in March of 1999 showed that people who use marijuana in moderate dose are more cautious drivers than those who have a moderate amount of alcohol. She found that the marijuana users are more aware of their impairment therefore they drive slower than those under the influence of alcohol. Even the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Bureau of Mortality Statistics studies show that more people have died do to the use of aspirin (500) than those of marijuana (0).

As for the cost of what it takes to deal with the “criminals” in reference to marijuana it would baffle most people if they knew the facts. The facts are this, in California only in 1998 marijuana accounted for 14,344 felony and 46,600 misdemeanor arrests for a total cost of some $100 million to the state. Over the past 20 years there has been a 2000% increase in prisoners due to marijuana while some serious criminals or paroled due to overcrowding. It has also been shown that CAMP (Campaign Against Marijuana Planting) has destroyed a 1/4 of a million marijuana plants in 1999 alone. The value of the crop was estimated at around some $1 billion lost to foreign smugglers rather than gained by local growers. It has also been shown that Californians consume about $3-$6 billion of marijuana per year, which would yield between $250-$500 million in sales taxes. So to me the economical pluses are enough.

Advocates against the legalization have also made many other claims on why it should not happen such as; It’s a gateway drug, That it weakens the Immune system, That it make it’s users sterile, That it causes birth defects, It cause brain damage, It’s addictive, It decrease the drive to excel and succeed, and once again It cause car accidents. In a paper published in October 1995 through The Hindemith Center; which was written by Lynn Zimmer, an Associate Professor of Sociology at Queens College and John P. Morgan, a Professor of Pharmacology at the City University of New York Medical School these myths are proven untrue.

A few facts that they state are; Over the years no matter if “hard” drug use has increased or decreased marijuana use has almost always done the opposite or stayed the same, In a 1988 study marijuana users showed an increase in responsiveness of white blood cells when exposed to immunological activators, In scientific studies there has been no link to marijuana use and being sterile, Researchers have found no difference in the IQ of those who were born to mothers who used marijuana while pregnant, Rodents and monkeys had to be given 200 times the amount even a heavy user of marijuana gets to cause brain damage.

In 1993 a study show that among Americans 12 years old and above 34% had tried marijuana in their life but only 9% of that had used it in the past year,4.3% in the past month and 2.8% in the past week, In studies it has been shown that ,among High School students, there was no difference in GPAs of users and non-users and ,among college students it was shown that users had higher GPAs than non-users. In another study it showed that users would work more hours and be more productive than non-users, In a study sponsored by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration it was shown that out of 2000 accident analyzed that only 6.7% were positive for marijuana and of that more than 2/3 were positive for alcohol also.

In closing I would like you to think about these two things 1) Why is it that many countries in the world have legalized marijuana and have, by most accounts, far less problems than the U.S.? and 2) Why is it that you can buy rolling papers, pipesArticle Submission, and bongs that are typically used for marijuana use at stores all over the country but it is illegal to smoke it?


 

Federal Government Is Impelled to Support Medical Marijuana by the American Medical Association

suit top

by Amelia Simpson,

The American Medical Association, which is the largest doctors’ organization in the USA, has reconsidered its position towards medical marijuana and currently supports exploration and medical research on marijuana for medicinal use. On Tuesday, the group has persuaded the federal government to re-evaluate its controlled substance categorization of marijuana in Schedule I, which unfairly maligns the plant alongside with some of the most hazardous narcotic substances, such as LSD and heroin.

AMA officer of board, Dr. Edward Langston specifies that just a least number of controlled, casual tests have ever been maintained on ingested marijuana in spite of medical research in by medical marijuana doctors and other experts, which encompasses more than thirty years. As for now, the group encourages new researches on medical marijuana’s effectiveness in spite of its support for the classification of marijuana in Schedule I, since 1997, because more and more  medical marijuana doctors appear over time.

This year, Obama’s administration has also ordered federal narcotics agents to stop prosecuting people who use and distribute medical marijuana (including medical marijuana doctors) in the states that have legalized it, which indicated an alteration of the course from past administrations’ stringent opposition to the use of medical marijuana, even for people that have medical marijuana cards in the states that have legalized the plant for medical use. At the moment, fourteen states lawfully permit the use of medical marijuana and around twelve other states have started to think about doing so. The American Medical Association is interested in study, which takes in account alternative methods of using medical marijuana, apart from therapeutically smoking it. Lawyers for medical marijuana speak about other helpful modes of medical marijuana use, involving the THC-rich cannabis oil extraction, which is claimed to be able to heal cancer patients. Today, no one is persecuted for the use of cannabis if a legal medical marijuana card  is present.

The reaction of the federal government to the AMA’s stance has been pretty silent in spite of loosened federal prosecution of medical marijuana use and medical marijuana clinic workers. DEA – the Drug Enforcement Administration – repeated the status of marijuana as a Schedule I substance and the FDA – Food and Drug Administration – refused to give any commentaries on the situation. The American Medical Association was one of the sole groups to object the first federal limitation on cannabis, which were established back in 1937. It still persists to decline casual idea that medical marijuana is a myth, in spite of its past support of Schedule I narcotic classification. The organization even objected an offered amendment, which would have settled its managerial policies in resistance to ingested marijuana as a safe way of use for medical marijuana treatment. In fact almost any medical marijuana clinic provides edible products of medical marijuana for patients with medical marijuana cards.

Marijuana support groups are joyous about the new stance of the AMA and the extending change of attitude towards medical marijuana and everything related to it – medical marijuana doctors, medical marijuana clinics, etc. While federal administration still resists against the medical marijuana legalization, referring to the FDA consideration in objection to its secure use as medicine, popular belief persists to change in favor of further study and medical use of marijuana. Last year, the second largest doctor group, the American College of Physicians has uttered similar support for improved research and reassessment of medical marijuana. AlsoComputer Technology Articles, the California Medical Association passed its own opinions that referred to marijuana criminalization as a “failed public health policy.”

The moods are changing towards frank research of the medical marijuana benefits. The attraction for further proof-based study by acknowledged medicinal organizations is a step in the proper direction on the way to legalizing medical marijuana for legal and safe medicinal purposes.

The vapors that are released do not contain any tar or particulate matter. Also, it contains considerably lower concentrations of harmful gases like carbon monoxide.

The vapors are extracted through various different forms of extraction chamber like sequential venture or venture, straight bore, and are made from several diverse materials like glass and metal. The vapors thus extracted are then inhaled through the pipe or hose directly with the vaporization water tools for maximum activity.

•    By thermal radiation
•    By convection
•    By thermal conduction

If we consider the conduction method of heating, the substance in this method is placed over a metal plate for heating it to result release of active ingredients.

Hydroponics gardening offers many advantages to the cannabis grower. In fact hydroponics gardening is probably the number one source all cannabis that is cultivated in the U.K. It seems these days that even though cannabis is still illegal in the U.K. most people know at least one person that grows their own cannabis.

Also as you are not using soil to grow the plants with, you see a massive reduction in the pests that may try to infest your plants and make them unhealthy. Hydroponics gardening also produces some of the strongest weed you’ll ever find. THC levels have raised to very high levels over recent years. What are the advantages of growing organically?Well, first off, the nutrients that are used to grow the cannabis hydroponically can be harmful to the environment if it is not disposed of properly.

SecondlyScience Articles, sometimes the hit that you get from hydroponic weed is just so strong that it can blow your head off and you literally can’t get it together to do anything.

Vaporization is a very good substitute for the people who are addicted to smoking. Instead of setting the herb on fire and thereby producing irksome, poisonous and carcinogenic substances as by-products, a good vaporizer heats the substance in an efficient and controlled way that makes the compounds, which are active ones and which are contained in the herb, to get boiled into vapors.

The vapor perfectly contains nearly zero particulate stuff or tar, and considerably minor concentrations of deadly gases, to name one carbon monoxide (CO). Vapor can be filtered and further cooled through the means of water and ice attachment or a water pipe. This vapor is there after inhaled through direct means with the help of a pipe or a hose for achieving highest activity, or making it to store for succeeding inhalations in a vessel for instance in a jar or may be in a bag.

With less production smoke, lesser temperatures, and of course less material is required to attain a specified level of outcome, the irritating and harmful outcomes of smoking are reduced to a great extent or eliminated as well, along with the used smoke, by making the use of a vaporizer. This feature makes vaporizers more useful in those places where there is no permission to smoke or smoking is banned and under those conditions in which a more clinically valid, delivery means are given priority.
