MPP Releases 'Top 50 Most Influential Marijuana Users' To recognize the rising visibility and importance of marijuana policy reform, the Marijuana Policy Project on Thursday released its first annual "Top 50 Most Influential Marijuana Users" list. This collection, MPP says, spans multiple public spheres and illustrates the pervasiveness of marijuana use across all socio-economic groups (although from where we sit it seems to heavily favor pre-fab pop icons). The people on this list have become successful and influential while also being marijuana users, with the greatest threat to that achievement being the possibility of arrest, according to MPP. "In order to have qualified for the list, each individual must (1) have tried marijuana at least once, (2) be alive, and (3) be living in the U.S. or be a U.S. citizen," said Morgan Fox, MPP communications manager. "In sum, we're not concerned with an individual's popularity, or even whether he or she supports marijuana policy reform," Fox said. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. More links from around the web!
Conoce tu sustancia psicoactiva (INFOGRÁFICO) (clic en la imagen para verla en tamaño completo) La organización civil Espolea A.C. es de las pocas en México que se ha dedicado al trabajo en investigación y difusión de nuevas políticas de drogas, entre las que se incluye la Reducción de Daños (Harm Reduction en inglés), enfoque surgido a mediados de los años 80’s como una alternativa al prohibicionismo de drogas, o el enfoque clásico, cuyas campañas de prevención se concentran en la censura sobre cualquier tipo de información respecto a las tipologías y efectos de las drogas consideradas ilegales, así como en la distribución masiva de información visual y slogans que depositan en la imagen de las drogas una suerte de “espíritu maligno” capaz de pervertir los valores de la sociedad. En la punta de cada pico encontramos a las sustancias cuyos efectos son más representativos de cada familia. Al final de la gráfica podemos encontrar una breve descripción de todas las drogas citadas en la imagen, acomodadas también por sus efectos.
How to Make Weed Vodka, aka ‘Green Dragon’ | 7 Deadly The Green Dragon ranks as one of the more elusive DIY methods of getting high. The cannabis tincture is a simple enough concept but the methods of creating this weed vodka varies depending on who you ask. From throwing stems into a half-full bottle of Smirnoff and letting it soak for a few weeks to speeding up the process by heating it in an oven, the recipe for Green Dragon depends on who’s making it. Looking to find the most straightforward, stoner-friendly recipe, we went with the soak-and-wait route. For the extract, use an alcohol that’s at least 60 proof — Bacardi, Smirnoff, etc. We went for Everclear at 151 proof. We suggest enjoying Green Dragon with a healthy dose of Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

10 Facts About Marijuana | Marijuana Policy and Effects Many opponents of medical marijuana make much of the purported link between marijuana use and mental illness. But there is simply no compelling evidence to support the claim that marijuana is a causal risk factor for developing a psychiatric disorder in otherwise healthy individuals. Most tellingly, population-level rates of schizophrenia or other psychiatric illnesses have remained flat even when marijuana use rates have increased. Emerging evidence indicates that patients who have tried marijuana may show significant improvements in symptoms and clinical outcomes (such as lower mortality rates and better cognitive functioning ) compared with those who have not. In fact, some of the unique chemicals in marijuana, such as cannabidiol (CBD), seem to have anti-psychotic properties. Rates of mental illness have remained stable in light of changes in marijuana consumption levels. Some psychoactive substances have been shown to improve mental health functioning and some do not.
Conceptos erróneos acerca de las drogas - Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre LSD Some of the strangest urban legends told are those about lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), a potent psychedelic drug that gained popularity in several countries in the 1960s and 1970s, and experienced a brief resurgence in the mid to late 1990s before declining from 2000 onward. The drug's relation to the 1960s counterculture was likely part of the reason for such legends. Attempted murder "Anyone caught selling LSD can be charged with attempted murder." Babysitter places baby in the oven while high on LSD This is an unverifiable drug-scare story dating to the 60s of a hippie babysitter girl putting a baby in the oven and a turkey in the bassinet. Bad LSD A "bad trip" is easily caused by an expectation or fear of ill effects, which may later be blamed on "bad acid." However, drugs described as LSD in the 1970s occasionally actually contained PCP, amphetamine, or other drugs that have quite different effects from LSD. "Bananadine" LSD Blue star tattoos
War On Drugs: 27 Reasons Why U.S. Doesn't Have The 'Moral Authority' To Lead It In Latin America (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images) Only 7 percent of Americans think the United States is winning the war on drugs, and few Americans are interested in throwing down more money to try to win, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll released in 2012. Mexican authorities seized almost 70,000 weapons of U.S. origin from 2007 to 2011. In 2004, the U.S. Congress declined to renew a 10-year ban on the sale of assault weapons. They quickly became the guns of choice for Mexican drug cartels. Because Most Americans Are Unenthusiastic About It Only 7 percent of Americans think the United States is winning the war on drugs, and few Americans are interested in throwing down more money to try to win, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll released in 2012. Mexican President Felipe Calderón drew international headlines this week when he said the United States didn’t have the “moral authority” to lead a drug war, after the states of Colorado and Washington legalized marijuana for recreational use.

California’s experimental pot culture and medical marijuana dispensaries have forged the path of creative, ganja-laced goodies for decades, with everything from Cracker Jacks-style popcorn and nut treats to chocolate bars and lollipops. Lindsay Jacobsen of Denver’s Dixie Elixers and Edibles, said their most recent innovation is a beverage that contains doses low enough to be consumed in one sitting without too much of a high or negative side-effects. “One of the new products we just launched is specifically for the recreational market and it’s called Dixie One,” Jacobsen said. The first Dixie One elixir is a watermelon-cream-flavored organic soda with just 5 milligrams of THC, which is a very small dose for most regular pot users.

Cannabis: The Central Practice of Terence McKenna’s Life GIF by Dan Stuckey Terence McKenna smoked cannabis for the first time during Easter vacation in 1965 when he was 18 years old. He had inherited “the programming,” as he called it, from his “middle class straight parents” that “the road to hell was paved” with cannabis. But he had also read Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and others who had been more specific, informative, and curious about the plant. It took McKenna “a couple, or three” encounters with cannabis before he figured out what it was doing to him. As an adolescent, he’d been “what they call ‘a nervous child’”; now, as a young adult, it came to him “with the force of a revelation” that: The mere smoking of a small amount of vegetable material could completely invert the structures of my personality and socialize me, as it were, into a reasonably functioning member of the community in which I found myself. He said in “Cannabis Trialogue” (1991): McKenna explained: This conversation would happen: McKenna: Eh, ten to fourteen. 1. 2. 3.
