Above The Influence of Ignorance

Above The Influence of Ignorance

Cannabis Enhancing plant South African Bushmen have been chewing kanna (Sceletium tortuosum) for hundreds of years to reduce stress, relieve hunger and elevate their moods. Now there are plans to market the exotic plant worldwide as a new over-the-counter drug, according to The first license ever issued to market kanna was given to the South African company HGH Pharmaceutical, who intend to sell it as a dietary supplement. "We're positioning [the product] for everyday people who are having a stressful time in the office, feeling a bit of social anxiety, tension or in a low mood," said Nigel Gericke, director of research at HGH. Though the company intends to produce their kanna product in pill form, the plant is traditionally chewed, smoked or made into a tea. At intoxicating levels, kanna taken alone can cause euphoria and sedation. "It's a product with huge potential," said Ben-Erik Van Wyk, a University of Johannesburg botanist.

To Dab Or Not To Dab? With each passing month, the popularity – and controversy – of butane hash oil (BHO) and the phenomenon surrounding it (known as “dabbing”) continues to grow in the cannabis community. Some hail it as a miracle medicine, a quantum leap forward in stoner evolution. Others criticize it, pointing to the potential dangers involved in both making and ingesting it, as well as possible negative effects on the public’s increasingly favorable attitude toward marijuana. Here at HIGH TIMES, it’s our duty to cover this issue as honestly and responsibly as we can – addressing any genuine concerns and dispelling unwarranted fears. Solvent vs Nonsolvent Extraction The first question to be addressed is: What’s the difference between solvent extracts and traditional hash? “You’re getting a lot of extra goodies that come out in those solvent extracts,” observes Bob Melamede, Ph.D. But there are those who disagree – such as Selecta Nikka T, owner and operator of Colorado’s Essential Extracts.

Stop the federal pot raids A months-long crackdown on medical marijuana by federal prosecutors has reached new heights with this week's raids on Oakland dispensaries. It's time to call off the overboard tactics and deal sensibly with regulating a drug that increasing numbers of Americans feel poses little harm. The latest incident only furthers the tone-deaf image of the U.S. It's a ridiculous stance that mocks a serious issue. But Prohibition Era-style sweeps won't work. Second, easing the availability of medical marijuana also has lowered the public's fear factor of the drug. Finally, the federal raids ignore the core of the issue: bridging the gap between unbending federal controls and growing numbers of states, including California, that want updated consideration of the drug. To be sure, court rulings and legal obstacles make change difficult. Yet this confusion doesn't excuse this week's raids.

Who will be controlling the 30,000 Drones that Taxpayers pay for? The end to privacy as we know it! ~ Liberty Bell Press Is this a mosquito? No. It represents an insect spy drone. These machines are already in production, funded by the US Government. They can be remotely controlled and equipped with a camera and a microphone. They may be able to land on you, and may have the potential to take a DNA sample or leave RFID tracking nanotechnology on your skin. How do they tell wrong from right? So my question is who controls these drones? Why do drones come weapon ready if they are for public use? If an attack by Al Qaeda is imminent why are we arming them openly to fight in Syria?
