Filed under: DrugsScience!

smoking weed in high school bad for health

The results from a 20-year study from New Zealand were just released.

And The Best Weed In America Is…

Filed under: DrugsEtc.

Is the Federal Government just ignoring things like this?

And by 'things like this' we mean a 'highly organized, official competition for marijuana… one that didn't tear down the fabrics of society by happening.'

How can the Feds NOT look at a turn out for something like the 2012 Bay Area High Times Cannabis Cup??

It was a two day harmless cannabis celebration!

Not only that, but it was a competition — and the best weed in the nation was given a title.

That title went to Larry's OG Kush, which is grown from the Cali Connection Seed Company.

Congrats on having the best illegal thing in the country!

Something needs to change, Feds!

Amsterdam Bans Foreigners From Buying Weed!

Filed under: DrugsLegal Matters


Oh no!

Sad news for all you dope smokers out there.

A Dutch judge upheld his government's plan to introduce a "weed pass" to prevent foreigners from buying that sweet sweet chronic from coffee shops in the Netherlands.

The problem is that this will literally destroy Amsterdam's tourism industry. Eberhard van der Laan, the city's mayor, wants to work out a compromise.

A lawyer for coffee shop owners said he'd file an urgent appeal against the ruling.

Soon, if the plan goes into effect, as is planned next year, only Dutch residents will be able to join the coffee shops, which will be reclassified as private clubs.

Why would anyone want to do this?

Was it because foreigners kept O.D.ing on all the sticky icky?

Oh wait… that's impossible. Hmmm. Maybe they hated all the weird looking foreign money?

They say it's because Belgians and Germans cross the border, buy tons of legal weed, then smuggle it home and sell it for a profit.

How is that a Dutch problem?

What's good for all you pot fiends out there is that the coffee shops have said they actually plan to just totally disregard the new law.

They hope they get taken to court so they can see how the law will hold up in a real trial.

So, if you really want to go smoke some bud in Amsterdam you better go soon before the new law bans foreigners from blazing up or munching on some space cake.

Teen Brains More Prone To Drug and Alcohol Damage

Filed under: DrugsFamilyAlcoholAddiction

Alcohol and Drugs may cause more damage to teenage brain

Researchers have announced Monday at Neuroscience 2010, the Society for Neuroscience conference in San Diego, California, that teens are actually more vulnerable to the harmful effects drugs and alcohol have on the brain.

From the perspective that that addiction is a form of learning, it totally makes sense that teens are more susceptible to addiction!

Just like teenagers can learn something like a foreign language much easier than adults, they can also develop an addiction easier, which could damage their developing brain.

A study at Harvard Medical School found that people who began smoking marijuana before the age of 16 and who used it the most performed the worst on a test of cognitive flexibility, meaning the ability to change response to something based on the context of the situation.

To put it simply, they were a bit slower than the rest of the herd.

According to Dr. Frances Jensen of Children’s Hospital Boston:

“Brain development is actively transpiring even in the teen brain, and [if] you throw in a drug on top of that, you could change the trajectory of brain development."

The effects of getting high in the teen brain are longer-lasting than in the adults and cannabis can stay teen’s systems longer, affecting the building blocks of learning and memory.

Just as there are likely more receptors in a teenage brain for drugs to bind to, alcohol may be binding to receptors in the same way, creating more problems for the teenage brain and harming it more profoundly than adults!

This enlightening information makes it more clear than ever that parents need to begin talking about drugs and alcohol with their kids at a younger age or we need to get Scruff McGruff back on the case!
