Gallipolis bans sale of synthetic cannabis

Category: Politics | Posted on Sun, November, 7th 2010 by THCFinder

 

The sale of the synthetic cannabis known as K2 or Spice was banned in the City of Gallipolis after the passage of an emergency ordinance on Tuesday night. During a city commission meeting the commissioners received a report from  a City Solicitor Adam Salisbury about the substance popularly known as K2 or Spice. During the meeting, Salisbury brought an ordinance before the commission in regards to the sale of the substance. European countries and as many as 16 U.S. states have banned the substance K2 or “Spice that is reportedly supposed to be five times more potent than marijuana.

 

 

The City of Gallipolis is one of a handful of municipalities in Ohio that have passed legislation that illegalizes the use, possession and sale of the substance known as K2 or Spice. Ohio legislatures are expected to take action in regards to the use and sale of the substances in 2011. This is just one more city to go against the long lasting struggle to legalize marijuana in many countries as well as many other cities.

License Cannabis Sales Expert Says

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 6th 2010 by THCFinder

Policymakers should consider allowing the licensed sale of cannabis for recreational use, says one of the UK's leading researchers of the drug. Professor Roger Pertwee is going to speak his mind at a speech at the British Science Association in Birmingham. He is expected to say amazing solutions have to be considered because he believes the current policy of criminalizing cannabis is ineffective. But the government continues to insist that decriminalization the drug would not work and only make things more difficult.

 

 

The dismissal last year of Professor David Nutt as the previous government's leading drugs adviser showed it was in no mood to consider relaxing the status of cannabis as an illegal class B drug. It is a view which is also shared by the United kingdom’s current government. But Prof Pertwee, an expert on cannabis-like chemicals, is to tell scientists that he, like Professor Nutt, believes it is a policy that is doing more harm than good Professor Pertwee discusses legalizing certain forms of cannabis. "I'm talking about harm minimization," Professor Pertwee said. Professor Pertwee continued to say "At the moment there is an awful lot of harm caused by what we have at the moment, with children going to a drug dealer or they try and grow it themselves and then they get into troublewith the law."

Cannabis Laws To Be Strengthened In The UK

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 6th 2010 by THCFinder

“Cannabis is to be reclassified as a class B drug”, Jacqui Smith commented. The home secretary said that she wanted to reverse Tony Blair's 2004 downgrading of the drug because of "uncertainty" over its impact on mental health. The move from class C means the maximum prison sentence for possessing cannabis rises from two years to five years. Her statement to MPs came despite the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs' review commissioned by Gordon Brown saying it should stay class C.

 

 

Since cannabis was downgraded there has been widespread concern about the increased prevalence of stronger "skunk" varieties. Ms Smith said this now accounted for 80% of the cannabis seized on the streets and the drug was nearly three times stronger than in 1995. She also added that the government's change of heart which is subject to parliamentary approval was part of a "relentless drive" to try and get the many pot smokers to alternatively quit or risk getting longer and much harsher sentences.

The 5 Biggest Marijuana Myths Debunked

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, November, 5th 2010 by THCFinder

 

 

As marijuana quickly becomes more and more socially acceptable, millions of Americans are beginning to understand the lies that they have been told about pot. Here are the five biggest myths about weed that have prevented any kind of legalization movement from getting on a roll.

1. Marijuana Causes Cancer

Many have said that smoking pot and smoking cigarettes is the same thing and, therefore; marijuana must cause cancer, as well. Not only have countless independentstudies disproved this, but some have actually found that marijuana decreased tumor growth by as much as 50%. (Sorry, cigarettes will still kill you.)

2. Marijuana Is Addictive

While prolonged use has shown to leave signs of dependence, marijuana does not actually contain a “nicotine-like” compound that causes it to be addictive. (This is similar to being “addicted” to soda.) There are little to no withdrawal symptoms, especially when compared to the withdrawal effects of drugs like cocaine or heroin – or even an alcohol-induced hangover.

3. Marijuana Is a Gateway Drug

Simply put, numerous studies have unequivocally disproved the idea that using marijuana leads to use of harder drugs. Marijuana has actually successfully been used to reduce hard drug users’ dependence on drugs. So, in reality, it is the exact opposite of a gateway drug.

4. Marijuana Causes Brain Damage

Another myth where the exact opposite thing is true: Not only have studied disproved the ideathat marijuana damages your brain, they have found that it actually protects your brain from the damage that heavy drinking can cause.

5. Marijuana Has No Medical Uses

The government has often defended its marijuana policy by citing their own studies that say that marijuana does not have any therapeutic effects. Not true. Aside from the uses listed above, marijuana have been proven to have beneficial effects on people suffering from migraines, glaucoma, AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, epilepsy, stomach disorders, and dozens of other health problems.

And, most recently, even the American Medical Association called for the government to remove its restrictive Schedule 1 status.
