La France à réellement besoin d'avancer, cette plante à une histoire et mentir n'est pas une solution à long terme, la prohibition marche pas et brise un nombre incroyable de vie et de famille, pour quelle que chose qui nous tue pas et nous rends heureux.

75 ans en arrière, y a bien eu la prohibition de l'alcool et pourtant tout le monde c'est que cela tue, mais c'est légale! Bizarre...
Arrêtons d'être naïf, hypocrite,..
Envers nous, les uns, les autres, voyez par vous même que tout cela n'est qu'un gros bateaux de bobards datent des années 30, au années 60 pour l'interdiction mondiale...


High Times. WeedPornDaily. Global Commission Calls Drug War A Failure - Business News. The drug war has failed. That’s the abbreviated conclusion of a report released today by an international commission studying drug policy. And if governments actually listen to the recommendations of the Global Commission on Drug Policy, resourceful entrepreneurs could find some high opportunities. The 19-member panel that offered its verdict on the fight against illegal drugs is no hippie operation. It's members include former U.N. chief Kofi Annan; entrepreneur Richard Branson; former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker; former Secretary of State George Schultz; and former Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo.

"The fact is that the war on drugs is a failure," Cardoso, who chaired the commission, said at a press conference. The commission said that as governments increased enforcement efforts, the use of illegal drugs also rose. And, if governments followed through on those recommendations, it's fair to speculate that enterprising (and legal) businesspeople would jump into the game.

Study: Intelligence, cognition unaffected by heavy marijuana use. By William J. Cromie Gazette Staff The new study of cognitive changes caused by heavy marijuana use has found no lasting effects 28 days after quitting. Following a month of abstinence, men and women who smoked pot at least 5,000 times in their lives performed just as well on psychological tests as people who used pot sparingly or not at all, according to a report in the latest edition of the Archives of General Psychiatry.

That's the good news. The bad news, not included in the study, is that most heavy users admit that pot has had a negative effect on their physical and mental health as well their functioning on the job and socially. "If there's one thing I've learned from studying marijuana for more than a decade, it's that proponents and opponents of the drug will put opposite spins on these findings," says Harrison Pope, a Harvard professor of psychiatry and leader of the research. Withdrawal produces impairment Unsatisfied lives "It's a chicken and egg situation," Pope admits. Toke of the Town - Cannabis news, rumor and humor.

April 11, 2014 | Like this article? Join our email list: Stay up to date with the latest headlines via email. Opponents of marijuana legalization, particularly members of law enforcement, frequently claim that liberalizing cannabis laws will lead to an increase in incidences of criminal activity, such as burglary, robbery, and driving under the influence. But two recent scientific papers report that just the opposite is true. In the most recent paper, published online in March in the scientific journal PLoS ONE, researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas reported that the enactment of laws legalizing people’s access to medical marijuana is not associated with any rise in statewide criminal activity, and that it may even be related to reductions in incidences of violent crime.

“The central finding gleaned from the present study was that MML (medical marijuana legalization) is not predictive of higher crime rates and may be related to reductions in rates of homicide and assault.

Published time: February 06, 2014 09:18 Edited time: February 07, 2014 12:49 Jose Mujica (AFP Photo / Miguel Rojo) The president of Uruguay has been nominated for this year's Nobel Peace Prize. According to his advocates, José “Pepe” Mujica's much talked-about marijuana legalization is in fact "a tool for peace and understanding. " For the second year in a row, the Drugs Peace Institute, which has supported Mujica’s marijuana legalization drive since 2012, insisting that the consumption of marijuana should be protected as a human right, has endorsed his candidacy, along with members of Mujica's leftwing political party the Frente Amplio, the PlantaTuPlanta (Collective of Uruguayan growers) and the Latin American Coalition of Cannabis Activists (CLAC).

Despite an avalanche of global criticism, in late December Uruguay became the first country in the world to fully legalize the production and sale of the popular herbal drug. AFP Photo / Desiree Martin. Nobel for legalization of drugs: bad joke or pragmatic consideration? In recent years and even decades, the authority of the Nobel Peace Prize was shaken. And its supervisors have nobody to blame but themselves. This one-time serious international prize awarded to the best of the best now more and more frequently depends on political situation and some apparently purely pragmatic considerations. Suffice it to recall the 2009 award, when it was given to the newly elected US President Barack Obama, who just could not physically managed to achieve any success on this post. But he achieved it later, for example, in Afghanistan. In 2012, the prize was awarded to the European Union for the protection of human rights.

Moreover, President of Institute of National Strategy Mikhail Remizov believes that it has never been ranged among authoritative prizes. "It was, in fact, usurped by representatives of the European left-wing liberal intelligentsia, who use very subjective, arbitrary criteria while selecting nominees and winners. FBI 'weed' problem in cyber-war - Gadgets and Tech - Life & Style.

According to The Wall Street Journal, director James Comey has acknowledged strict FBI rules about hiring people who smoke cannabis could have complicated efforts to recruit cyber-security specialists. The agency’s policy prohibits anyone working for it who has used cannabis in the past three years. Unfortunately, hackers like their weed. “I have to hire a great workforce to compete with those cyber-criminals, and some of those kids want to smoke weed on the way to the interview,” the newspaper quoted Mr Comey as saying at the White Collar Crime Institute’s annual meeting in New York.

It added that when one person asked how a cannabis-using friend interested in working for the FBI should now act, Mr Comey replied: “He should go ahead and apply.” “The sort of hackers you want to hire tend to be young; the young tend to have bad habits such as smoking marijuana, and over time you’d expect them to do this less,” Dr Richard Clayton of Cambridge University said.

Marijuana Law Reform - NORML. Will Legalizing Marijuana in Uruguay Trigger a Global Revolution? Updated 03/05/2014, 11:06AM Uruguay is poised to legalize recreational marijuana on Tuesday, an experiment that will force the United States to reevaluate its own international drug policies. The Uruguayan government will oversee the cultivation and distribution of pot, and residents will be able to purchase up to 1.4 ounces of marijuana each month. Along with Uruguay, other nations are considering marijuana law reforms. Last month, Jamaica’s Parliament endorsed decriminalizing pot, and lawmakers in Morocco are drafting a plan to legalize marijuana cultivation. Are these signs that the United States is de-escalating the global war on drugs? When it comes to marijuana, yes. Don’t expect overt policy change from federal agencies yet. “The U.S. is going to be in a weak position to pressure other countries,” said John Walsh, a drug-policy expert with the Washington Office on Latin America.

So the legalization programs in Colorado and Washington aren’t just breaking federal law. The U.N. L'Uruguay va vendre un cannabis légal à 0,75€ le gramme pour lutter contre le trafic de drogue. Les autorités de l’Uruguay veulent mettre en place une nouvelle stratégie pour combattre les trafiquants de drogue. Si le Sénat valide leur proposition, l’État pourrait autoriser dès 2014 la vente du cannabis à 0,75 euro le gramme. Le texte proposé par le gouvernement prévoit trois moyens encadrés de se procurer le produit. L’autoculture d’abord avec six plants maximum par consommateur, la culture dans les clubs de membres avec un maximum de 45 personnes pour 99 plants et enfin la vente en pharmacie pour 40 grammes maximum chaque mois. Les cultivateurs et consommateurs devront s’inscrire sur un registre national. L’exécutif travaillerait déjà aux règles d’application alors que la vente ne devrait être autorisée qu’aux personnes majeures résidant en Uruguay.

Les peines encourues pour la production illégale seront durcies. Les parlementaires ont déjà approuvé le projet de loi le 31 juillet dernier.

See also: A Big Mystery Involving The Origin Of 4/20 Has Finally Been Solved Warren Haynes, the Allman Brothers Band guitarist, routinely plays with the surviving members of the Grateful Dead, now touring as The Dead. He’s just finished a Dead show in Washington, D.C., and gets a pop quiz from the Huffington Post. Where does 420 come from? He pauses and thinks, hands on his side. Depending on who you ask, or their state of inebriation, there are as many varieties of answers as strains of medical bud in California.

The origin of the term 420, celebrated around the world by pot smokers every April 20, has long been obscured by the clouded memories of the folks who made it a phenomenon. The Huffington Post chased the term back to its roots and was able to find it in a lost patch of cannabis in a Point Reyes, California forest. It starts with the Dead. It was Christmas week in Oakland, 1990. But the Cheshire cat is out of the bag. Smokepot. Grass (1999 film) The film presents this map of US states with non-medical marijuana decriminalization laws. State-level but not federal decriminalization of non-medical marijuana No federal or state level decriminalization of non-medical marijuana The film follows the history of US federal policies and social attitudes towards marijuana, beginning at the turn of the twentieth century. The history presented is broken up into parts, approximately the length of a decade, each of which is introduced by paraphrasing the official attitude towards marijuana at the time (e.g.

"Marijuana will make you insane" or "Marijuana will make you addicted to heroin"), and closed by providing a figure for the amount of money spent during that period on the "war on marijuana. " The film places much of the blame for marijuana criminalization on Harry Anslinger (the first American drug czar) who promoted false information about marijuana to the American public as a means towards abolition.

Industrial Hemp (which is not the same as medicinally and recreationally-used marijuana) was grown commercially in the US until the 1950s. Now the US is the only industrialized nation that prohibits growing industrial hemp despite the fact that it’s highly profitable; can be used to make more than 25,000 products, including paper, fiber, plastics, textiles, and rope; and does not require the use of herbicides or pesticides to grow it.

Many communities are aiming to make industrial hemp legal, which would benefit farmers, our economy, and the environment. In the last ten years more than 28 American states have introduced hemp legislation. You can learn from their experiences and join forces. Here are some resources to learn more about the benefits of industrial hemp and get involved in the movement: The North American Industrial Hemp Council, Inc.Industrial Hemp Brochure Videos on Green Building with Hemp: Hemp Is the Far Bigger Economic Issue Hiding Behind Legal Marijuana. From If the upcoming pot legalization ballot in California were decided by hemp farmers like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, it would be no contest. For purely economic reasons, if you told the Constitutional Convention in 1787 that the nation they were founding would someday make hemp illegal, they would have laughed you out of the room.

If California legalizes pot, it will save the state millions in avoided legal and imprisonment costs, while raising it millions in taxes. But with legal marijuana will come legal hemp. That will open up the Golden State to a multi-billion-dollar crop that has been a staple of human agriculture for thousands of years, and that could save the farms of thousands of American families. Hemp is currently legal in Canada, Germany, Holland, Rumania, Japan and China, among many other countries. It is illegal here largely because of marijuana prohibition.

Super High Me. Determined to find out the true effects of marijuana on the human body, stand-up comedian and former Stoner of the Year Doug Benson documents his experience avoiding pot for 30 days and then consuming massive amounts of the drug for 30 days. More than just an amusing story of one man's quest to get super high, this documentary also examines the hotly contested debate over medical marijuana use. Although the film is inspired by a joke which was inspired by Super Size Me, don’t expect to see the same dramatic reactions. Morgan Spurlock’s documentary about the dangers of excessive unhealthy eating was shockingly unhealthy for the filmmaker.

During the thirty days of only eating McDonalds Spurlock vomits, is drained of energy, and ultimately puts his own life in danger. In Spurlock’s television show, 30 Days, one episode features a mother binge drinking for thirty-days, which also shows obviously negative heath risks. Watch the full documentary now - Legalize it?
