Above The Influence of Ignorance

Above The Influence of Ignorance

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.

Drink Marijuana Tea for a healthy heart Tea is a popular drink, and it can soothe the soul, help you sleep, and some kinds of tea are even good for a healthy heart. The popularity of tea has really risen over the last decade or so, with a lot of people choosing to drink it over things like soda, juice, or coffee. Many people may not realize that there is such a thing called marijuana tea. It is made from, you guessed it, marijuana! It is made fairly easily, simply by infusing marijuana into hot water. Since marijuana is fat soluble, marijuana tea does not offer up the “high” that simply smoking or cooking it in butter or oil would. By adding some milk to the marijuana tea, you may get more of the adverse affects from the cannabis sativa plant. Copyright 1999-2006 HempNut, Inc.
