Some 420 Evaluations

British 420 Evaluations

England is one of the countries of the world, were cannabis is consumed the most. The herb is not only an important part of millions of people’s lives, but it is also an important part of the black market economy. This means that organize crime and other criminals benefit from the production and sales of this plant, which is why some 420 evaluations are currently being realized all over the world, to try and legalize cannabis.

According to some experts from this country, there are around two million marijuana users in their territory and the industry or illicit trade of cannabis is worth around six billion £. Some police reports also show that at least 750000 marijuana plants were confiscated by their officers, during the period of 2009 to 2010. It has also been found by the Independent Drug Monitoring Unit that British people consumer around 1000 tons of cannabis every single year.  

In the most recent studies about cannabis, it has been proven that the current prohibition laws, only promote the illicit trade of this herb, as it yields staggering profits. The plant is grown in many countries of the world and people are now taking these operations indoors, were they are harder to detect and only grow enough for personal use.

The current prohibitionist laws on cannabis have also created an uncountable number of gangsters, criminals, drug lords, contraband and some corrupted cops. These are certainly things that affect our society and that countries were cannabis is now legalized, are seeing much less of.
Some of the latest 420 evaluations have also proven that cannabis is not as dangerous as other drugs, like heroin, cocaine or LSD and that people accept that cannabis is not a start off drug as many consider it to be. The evaluations also proved that the marijuana industry is a lot larger than any of the other illicit drug industries out there and that it generates billions of Pounds every year.

According to the Daily Mail from the UK, consuming marijuana is also a lot less riskier than consuming any other drug, whether they are illegal or not. Some medical studies have also stated that those who consume cannabis have a less chance of suffering from mental diseases and that it is also good for battling cancer.

The British Lung Foundation has released some studies though, were they state that smoking cannabis can be as dangerous as smoking tobacco, which is why it is strongly recommended to cook marijuana edibles or use vaporizers to smoke this herb. This will prevent you from harming your lungs and fully benefiting from the marvels of cannabis.   

Please remember to like and share this article and to leave us your email in the box to the right, so you can subscribe to our newsletter and receive some very interesting stuff about cannabis in your mail. The 420 evaluations will keep proving that marijuana is far better legalized than keeping it illegal and we know that changes will come soon.

Creating The First Marijuana Brand

A Marijuana Brand May Appear In The Market Soon

As you probably already know, there is a green movement going on right now all over the world and there are plenty of entrepreneurs who are already getting involved in the cannabis industry and some of them are really thinking big. Even businessmen who have formerly worked in serious enterprises are thinking of getting involved in the cannabis industry and an ex Microsoft executive is planning to create the first marijuana brand in the United States.

This ex Microsoft executive is not only thinking about creating his own cannabis brand, but he is already getting involved in the industry by having purchasing medical cannabis dispensaries in several States of the US.  The name of this ex Microsoft executive is James Shively and he is certainly not shy about making his business ideas public.

What Entrepreneurs Think About The Marijuana Industry

Just as Shively is thinking of getting involved in the cannabis industry, there are many others who also believe that this will be a great business opportunity and that it is time for those who are interested to get involved. Shively is only 45 years old and he has had an amazing career. Now, he is thinking of getting involved in one of the toughest industries in the market today, but he is certain that his enterprises will be successful and that they have a lot to look forward to.

“It is a great market in search of a brand. We would be happy if we get 40 percent of it worldwide,” said Shively to the press.  Shively also has a plan for importing marijuana into the US legally from Mexico and if this is accomplished, it will certainly become one of the biggest businesses in the world really fast.

Although Shively and other entrepreneurs know that this is still a tough industry to invest in, as cannabis is still not legal according to US federal law, they are willing to take the risk and change the world for good.
Shively also had a few words for federal officers and they were: “If they want to come talk to me, I’ll be delighted to meet with them. I’ll tell them everything that we’re doing and show them all our books.” Shively also told the press, that he plans to have a medical and recreational marijuana brand, which will be effective for different purposes and which will surely be sought by people very much.

A Marijuana Brand Would Change The World

If Shively and other entrepreneurs achieve their goals, we will surely have a very different world in a few years, as having cannabis in the legal market, will open lots of new opportunities and change our communities in many ways.

It will not be long before we start seeing some of the first cannabis products with a brand name on them and this should help you to understand that this industry is one of the most important ones in the world and that it will provide entrepreneurs with tons of profits.

Marijuana Dispansaries May Become A Reality In Nevada

Nevada Might Soon Have Legal Marijuana Dispensaries

As the world starts to legalize cannabis and allows people to consume this herb for medicinal purposes, the State of Nevada now has, a very good chance of having its own marijuana dispensaries and even some growing operations. Just as I have stated in some of my posts in this blog, this proves that marijuana will be legalized soon and that people are reconsidering the effects of this herb.

Clark County, could have up to 40 different marijuana dispensaries, if Senate Bill 374 is accepted, while some of the other counties in the State of Nevada, could have up to ten of these pharmacy like businesses and some rural areas will get theirs too. 

The bill is still not approved and it needs to be accepted by the Assembly, but many are very positive about the results, as recent studies have proven that more people want cannabis legalized and that the number of Americans, who learn about the medical benefits of this herb, is increasing every single day.

Marijuana Dispensaries Will Most Likely Open In Nevada

The people believe that cannabis should be legalized and if this bill is approved, it is very likely that more States will follow and soon, more countries will start following as well. Senate Bill 374, will most likely be approved in the near future and those who live in the State of Nevada, should start thinking about ways to promote this and encourage others to help approve it. 

According to this bill, marijuana dispensaries will be under a very tight control, which means that only people who really need this herb, will have access to it and that there will a dramatic reduction in black market activities.  

Once cannabis is legalized, we will all start seeing the changes in our society and we will start wondering why, we did not end marijuana prohibition sooner.

Israel’s Debate About Medical Marijuana

Medical Marijuana Is Being Analyzed in Israel

Like many other countries in the world, Israel is also considering the legalization of marijuana for medicinal purposes and the debate has recently escalated there. Because the Knesset Health Committee just decided to approve eleven more doctors to prescribe marijuana to their patients, some people have jumped out of their seats to debate about this and this means that there may be some problems trying to legalize this herb.

The last couple of weeks have been very interesting for people interested in medical marijuana in Israel, as there have been several debates about this and even some protests as well. As you can imagine, marijuana is still not legal in Israel, but there are already some farms growing this herb and they are also providing some valuable information about its benefits, uses and how it could change our world.

The Galilee hills are located in the northern part of Israel and they are home to one of the government’s medical marijuana growing operations. It is said, to be the home of one of the strongest psychoactive marijuana strains in the planet and it is also said, that a strain which helps to reduce inflammation in the human body, better than other strains do, is also grown here.  

Israel Will Legalize Medical Marijuana Soon

As you can see, Israel is moving towards legalizing cannabis for medicinal purposes very soon, since they are already growing this herb within their territory, they are studying it and they are also giving doctors the ability to prescribe medical marijuana to their patients.

The growing operation in the Galilee hills is a real technological wonder, as it is temperature controlled, it has its own security system and it also has some of the latest lightning technology available today.  According to some, this growing operation is also seen by some Jewish people as a spiritual thing and many are in favor of legalizing this plant.

While Israel does not have an approved law about marijuana yet, the Ministry of Health in this country, is already issuing some licenses to people who could benefit from this herb and some government employees are also promoting the legalization of cannabis for medicinal purposes as a useful innovation and business enterprise.

Israel Has Been Studying Medical Marijuana For Years

It was in the 1960s, when two professors from the Weizmann Institute of Science studied cannabis and the benefits that this plant could have on the human body.  Since then, Israel scientists and medical experts from this country, have been analyzing marijuana and have found more benefits from this plant.

Today, many Israeli researchers admit that cannabis can be useful in many cases and that it does help people with certain diseases, illnesses and symptoms.  Zach Klein, who was once a filmmaker stated, “Cannabis was used as medicine for centuries. Now, science is telling us how it works.”

A Poll Favors The Legalization Of Hemp

Hemp Poll Proves That People Want This Plant Legalized

There is no doubt now, about the majority of Americans being in favor of legalizing both cannabis and hemp. While some people might think that these are the same plant, the fact is that hemp does not contain the THC compounds that cannabis does, which means that you cannot get high from it and that it does not affect our sense in any way. (Unless you consume over a few acres of it) 

The new poll has found that 56% of Americans are in favor of legalizing hemp and that only 24% of the people living in this country are not in favor of legalizing this plant for industrial purposes. The poll also demonstrated that 20% of Americans are still not certain about this decision and this means that we still have a lot of convincing to do. 

The New Hemp Bill

It was also recently that senators Mitch McConnell, Ron Wyden, Rand Paul and Jeff Merkley proposed a farm bill, which will allow people to grow hemp inside their homes, which would certainly change many things for Americans and the world. 

At the moment, hemp is legally imported from Canada into the United States, as well as from other countries of the world and it is used to produce products like soap, shirts and more. Since cannabis is still considered a "schedule I drug", it is not legal to grow this plant within American territory and even though, hemp has none of the psychoactive compounds of marijuana, it has still not been approved for industrial purposes, which would surely benefit the economy a lot and create tons of new jobs for the thousands of unemployed people in North America. 

Ron Wyden had already proposed a similar bill back in June of 2012, but it did not get voted on and was not passed. "I firmly believe that American farmers should not be denied an opportunity to grow and sell a legitimate crop simply because it resembles an illegal one. I'm confident that if grassroots support continues to grow and Members of Congress continue to hear from voters than common sense hemp legislation can move through Congress in the near future," stated Wyden to the press. 

There are already some States in the US, which allow people to apply for hemp growing licenses, but this is still illegal under federal law, which stops them from commercializing their products freely and to increase their incomes or business size as well. 

Hemp And Marijuana Need To Be Legalized

If polls and studies are proving that both hemp and marijuana are already favored by the majority and that they can really benefit our society, I really see no reason why these plants are still illegal and I know that we will see the legalization of this herb in the very near future one day. 

Please remember to like and share this article and to subscribe to our mailing list, by leaving us your email in the box to the right. I will make sure that you receive more information about hemp and all of the benefits that it could bring to our societies.

The Topic Of Cannabis Is All Over The World

Millions Are Talking About Cannabis

As the title of this post says, the topic of cannabis is all over the world. People are talking about this herb in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and everywhere. They are also talking about it on television, on the newspapers, in magazines, in books, the Internet and in many other places as well. There are experts talking about marijuana, there are politicians talking about it, there are doctors talking about it and many others are also talking about this too. 

This proves that the legalization of cannabis is on its way and that there are millions of people interested in it right now. Recently the OEA or the Organization of American States, made public its results on "the drug problem", in which the scenario has been analyzed and four different solutions have been presented. The study is meant to help countries decided whether or not marijuana is legalized in their territories and what the benefits of this would be. 

The study also describes how the current prohibition laws are not working and how it requires to be improved right away. The study only took about a year and this was due to the fact that there are many people focusing on this topic at the moment. The legalization of possession of marijuana for personal use is recommended in this study and this also proves that people are changing their point of views about this herb.

Cannabis Will Be Legalized Very Soon

According to the study that the OEA made public recently, cannabis is an ancient and cultural plant, which needs to be legalized, as it can provide us with many benefits and is already being used worldwide. The study is filled with scientific knowledge, cultural points of view and much more, which should help people to realize that marijuana is not as bad as other substances and that its laws need to be reformed today. 

People are really doing a lot to help the legalization of marijuana to become a reality and there is no doubt that this study will help others to realize that this plant should not remain banned anymore. I have explained the benefits of marijuana many times in this blog and people all over the world are realizing that these are true. 

Further studies will continue to prove that marijuana is a beneficial plant and that keeping it illegal is simply not the way to solve consumption or illegal trade. The money and jobs that a marijuana industry can create is simply out of this world and it would surely be one of the most profitable industries in the market, which is why governments and communities would benefit from this plant and it is moment for everyone to admit that it would.

Clearview Has Its Own Medical Marijuana Grow Operation

A Medical Marijuana Growing Operation

It has been more than 15 months now, since the medical marijuana growing operation in the town of Clearview in Canada has been operating legally and it will surely get larger very soon. This marijuana grow operation is currently on a leased site and it is known as The Peace Naturals Project, which is owned by Mark A. Gobuty.

Gobuty recently contacted the local newspapers and talked about his operation for the first time. He said that he had taken the decision of going public on his business venture, because he does not believe in hiding it and thinks that it is just another agricultural opportunity. “We are very proud of what we’re doing and there is no shame,” where Gobuty’s exact words.

Since this company opened its doors over a year ago, it also started to take a transparent approach, as they declared to the OPP and have been doing so ever since.  The company has also invited police officers to visit the site whenever they feel like it, as this is a secure growing operation and they are not doing anything out of the ordinary.

Medical Marijuana Growing Operations Need To Open Everywhere

Health Canada has provided a license for this operation and this has allowed them to grow medical marijuana for the past few months.  Health Canada is in charge of regulating these types of operations and it does accept new companies, if these meet the requirements and regulations.

At the moment the marijuana grow operation in Clearview, is providing cannabis to two people, but it has permission to provide for two more. If Health Canada accepts a person’s registration, they will also get the chance to grow their own cannabis at home, which is something that some people prefer and are currently doing.

In April 2014, the federal government will be making some changes to the current laws on marijuana and these will not allow people to grow their own cannabis at home, which is why some growing operations are being established and the permits are being given to them.  According to some experts, this will give the government a better control over this herb and it should make it easier for patients to have access to it as well. A license from Health Canada will no longer be necessary for patients as well and they will be able to get their herb from grow operations, by simply having a prescription from their doctor.

Medical Marijuana Is More Than Just Medicine

The grow operation in Clearview, is also trying to expand if the new laws are approved in 2014 and they have already applied for the permits that they will need.  Thousands of people are already using cannabis as medicine in Canada and there are millions around the world doing the same. They all claim that marijuana helps to ease their pains and that it helps them to eat more as well.

The IRS Does Not Accept Medical Cannabis Yet

The IRS Has A Constant War Against Medical Cannabis

For those of you who do not know, the IRS is the Internal Revenue Service of the United States, which is basically a government office that is in charge of taxing citizens, businesses and making them follow certain types of economic rules.  Because marijuana is still not accepted as a legal substance in most states and countries of the world, it has been difficult for medical cannabis dispensaries and other businesses related to this herb, to declare to the IRS or other similar government agencies and this why they are being raided all of the time.   

It all started back in 1982, when a new code was established by the IRS, in order to prevent drug dealing and trafficking. The name of this tax code is Section 280E and it does not allow someone who has been found in the possession of an illegal substance or selling it, to claim expenses as other normal businesses and people do, when it is time to report their taxes to the government. This tax code was created, because some drug traffickers had been able to recover some of their belongings, after appearing in court and it has surely been useful in many cases, but not allowing medical marijuana dispensaries to declare their taxes as other businesses do, is not allowing legalization to fully take place. 

Medical Cannabis Can Help The Economy

While the IRS is still fighting against marijuana dispensaries and other businesses that are related to this industry, they are certainly letting go on a huge opportunity, which has already been considered by many economic experts and that many believe could be the solution to some of our current economical problems. 

By continuing to use this tax code on medical cannabis, the IRS will force patients to do business in the black market and this will only worsen the situation that we already have with gangs and organized crime. If the IRS and other governments keep avoiding the legalization of cannabis, they will also lose a lot of revenue from taxing this herb, as every medical marijuana dispensary would have to report to them and would have to pay certain amount of money, just like other businesses do. 

If the IRS continues to apply this code to marijuana, it will also cause the disappearance of thousands of very well paid jobs which help to boost the economy in cities and thus in every state. All of this would cause communities to become more dangerous and there would certainly be an increase in crime, since people would still try to find cannabis, just as they are doing today in many parts of the world. 

Medical Cannabis Should Be Taxed Like Any Normal Business

When we allow marijuana to be taxed as any other product in the market and we solidify some of the laws that are already allowing people to consume this herb as medicine and for recreational purposes, we will have a very different world and many communities will have enough money to sponsor other projects, like education, infrastructure and even further studies about the medical benefits of cannabis.

Should There Be Zero Tolerance For Medical Marijuana Patients?

The State Of Michigan Might Charge Medical Marijuana Patients With DUI

We all know that driving under the influence of alcohol or another drug can be very dangerous, to both ourselves and third parties. We are also very aware of the problems that we can get ourselves in to, if we are stopped by the police, while under the influence of a substance and this is why the State of Michigan decided to vote on whether or not medical marijuana patients should be charged with a DUI after having consumed this herb and the results were what most people expected.

It all started back in 2010, when Rodney Lee Koon, was stopped for driving over the speed limit, as he was going 83 mph on a 55 mph zone. After Koon was stopped by the police, he confessed to being a medical marijuana user and to having a pipe in is possession. Rodney also confessed to having smoked cannabis about five hours prior to the event and was even taken to some offices to get his blood analyzed. 

The test results showed that Rodney had a very low amount of THC in his blood and this was proof that he was saying the truth, about having consumed the herb more than a couple of hours prior to the traffic stop. After this, Koon was sent to trial, as he was charged with driving under the influence of a controlled substance and this is not accepted by traffic laws in the State. 

Koon Had Benefits For Being A Medical Marijuana Patient

At the trial, Koon was able to come out victorious, as the MMMA provided a sort of immunity to him, by not defining exactly the amount of "internal possession" of cannabis that an individual can have in their body at a certain time and the MMMA does not define the phrase "under the influence" in their regulations either, which is why Koon was able to beat the charge he was accused of. 

Everything was okay, until the Michigan Court of Appeals decided that the zero-tolerance for driving under the influence of a controlled substance should be valid for this case in 2012 and now Koon might have to appear in front of the judge again and reevaluate his case. 

According to Michigan's court, "while we need not set exact parameters of when a person is under the influence, we conclude that it contemplates something more than having any amount of marijuana in one's system and requires some effect on the person."

Medical Marijuana Patients Might Not Get To Drive

While there are still no studies that prove that driving under the influence of cannabis can affect how the person controls the vehicle, there is no doubt that cannabis can relax our muscles and make us see things around us differently, which is why it might be better if the zero-tolerance for driving under the influence of a controlled substance is applied for people who consume cannabis, just as it is applied for those who drink alcohol and decide to drive. 

Not only will this help us to legalize cannabis around the world faster, but it will surely help to protect people who are out for a drive and those who are just walking on the streets. As you all know, here at Zip 420 we are in complete favor of marijuana being legalized for both medicinal and recreational purposes around the world, but we also think that we should do it in a reasonable way and in a form that it benefits us all the same.

Five Signs That The Legalization Of Marijuana Is Coming Soon

The Legalization Of Marijuana Is Getting Closer Every Day

Few people would of have thought that cannabis would be accepted for medicinal parts in some States of the US a few years ago, but the reality is that almost 20 already do and that there are many others that are thinking about this possibility, just as many countries around the world are doing as well. In this post, I will tell you about five of the signs that the legalization of marijuana is closer than we all think and that it is time for everyone to accept that this herb is really beneficial. 

These five signs can be seen easily and there is lots of proof about them everywhere. If you are still skeptical about the world legalizing cannabis, you should really start to reconsider, because this herb cannot only be used as medicine, but it can also be used for industrial purposes and it is also a great way to provide problem free entertainment. 

The Five Signs That The Legalization Of Marijuana Is Closer Than You Think

  1. Countries all over the world are now changing their laws about cannabis and this can only mean that more countries will follow, after they see the incredible positive effects that legalization has. The Czech Republic and Uruguay are only two examples of countries that have changed their laws on marijuana entirely and that are having amazing success with them. 
  2. Scientific and medical studies are proving that consuming cannabis is beneficial for our bodies in many ways and that it can help to treat certain diseases, without causing the secondary effects that other drugs do. Recently, a new study on cannabis proved that consuming this herb can help to prevent diabetes, which has been one of the hardest diseases to treat worldwide and this is only one example of what this herb can do for us. 
  3. Marijuana dealers in Washington, are now being given warning letter by local police and this proves how authorities are no longer making cannabis their primary objective, as there are plenty of other crimes that are much more harmful to society and that really affect a lot of people. 
  4. Important people such as politicians and celebrities are now showing their love for cannabis worldwide and this is helping societies to reform the laws on this herb as they are today. Governors and actors are all saying how good this herb is for them and have given statements about how it has helped others as well. Some are simply showing how cannabis is not as dangerous as alcohol or tobacco and how people can have fun consuming this herb, without harming anyone at all.
  5. Some of the companies that deal with marijuana related products, are now in the stock market and they are legal to invest in. This can only mean that the legalization of marijuana is closer than we all think and that we might very well be getting ready with our grow rooms and equipment. 

The Legalization Of Marijuana Is Sure To Happen One Day

If there is one thing that I am certain about and that I am willing to risk a lot of my money in, is that marijuana will be legalized in almost every country of the world one day and that we are very likely to see this happen in our lifetimes. 

The five signs that I have described above are facts that are happening right now all over the world and they truly show that we are closer to legalizing this herb than what many people think.

Talking About The Effects Of Marijuana

What Are The Real Effects Of Marijuana?

It has been a while since I shared some of the documentaries about cannabis that I really enjoy and that I believe can also help people to realize more about the real effects of marijuana and how this herb affects our world. I found this documentary in YouTube and although I have no idea of who uploaded it, I know that it is a documentary that we can trust, as it comes from BBC, which is one of the most important television channels in the UK and the world. 

The video in this article, is from a series that was broadcasted by BBC in 2011. While some of the things on this documentary might be outdated, there are several interviews that I thought were very important and which have some very interesting ideas about the legalization of this herb. 

In this documentary, you will also get to see some of the things that cannabis users are doing in the UK, the US and other parts of the world. It shows how some teenagers have decided to grow their own, even though it is illegal, because they believe that it is much better to grow our own, than to give our money to organized crime members and towards buying low quality marijuana. 

There is even an interview with a family, who admits to having given their teenage son his first joint and they even appear smoking the herb together. They admit that this is a thing that society should accept and that they do not see any harm from the effects of marijuana, which is why they have decided to allow their son to smoke this herb when he does not have school the next day.

There Is No Need To Be Scared About The Effects Of Marijuana

In the video, you will be able to see how people from the UK and the US get their cannabis and how some use medical cannabis legalization to get this herb for recreational purposes. The video also shows how some people who actually need marijuana as a medicine, are living in places were the herb is not legal yet and this should be enough to convince anyone that it is time for the world to legalize cannabis. 

There are several interviews in this documentary, which show what people think about breaking the law, in order for their children to have this medicine and what they think about the current laws that prohibit this herb. One of the most interesting interviews in this video is one made to an ex British government employee, who proved that the effects of marijuana are not dangerous at all and who was even fired, for telling everyone that the biggest risk this plant has on people, is a criminal record.

Can You Lose Weight Smoking Cannabis?

Cannabis Can Help To Keep You In Shape

Recent studies have proven that consuming cannabis, can actually help you to stay slim, even if you do get the munchies and eat a lot of snacks. There is no doubt about most people who consume marijuana being slimmer than those who don't and this is why those who want to lose weight should consider it or at least favor the legalization of this herb.  

The studies were based on over 4000 people and it became obvious for researchers that those who cosume marijuana, were able to maintain lower insulin levels, even if they consumed alcohol, tobacco or some types of foods. 

The amount of marijuana that a person consumes, has nothing to do with how slim they are, but the studies did prove that those people who have lighted up in the past, tend to be in better shape and slimmer than those who have not. The studies even found that those people who smoke marijuana regularly are not the ones that lose the most weight, but that those people who only smoke every once in a while, can keep their waistlines in shape. 

Why Does Cannabis Help Us To Lose Weight?

The researchers who conducted these studies, are still not very certain about why marijuana helps people to stay slim, since it is known to help increase appetite and to make people want to eat extraordinary amounts of foods. Researchers believe that the compounds in cannabis are what causes people to stay slim, even though they eat a lot of munchies and spend most of their day eating unhealthy snacks. 

The results in these studies, were not based on many scientific facts, but instead on averages and statistics, which prove that those who consume this herb every now and then, tend to stay much slimmer than those who do not consume marijuana at all. 

There is no doubt about some of the compounds in marijuana being healthy for our bodies and how they help to ease anxiety, nerve pain, glaucoma problems and people who suffer from cancer as well. This is why some governments are deciding to legalize medical marijuana and why more people are becoming aware of the true benefits of this herb.

Cannabis Is A Useful Herb

Tommy Chong Is In Favor Of Legalizing Cannabis

Legalizing Cannabis Will Benefit Us In Many Ways

As you can probably already imagine, Tommy Chong is one of the people who is in favor of legalizing cannabis all over the world and some of his points of view are really smart and I do agree with almost everything that he has to say. While most people might not take this counterculture comedian very seriously, the fact of the matter is that he has made some very wise comments lately and he can surely help us to legalize this herb.

It was just yesterday, when Chong was interviewd by The Christian Science Monitor and where he talked about the legalization of marijuana and why he believes that ending prohibition will benefit us all in many ways. Chong talked about how legalizing marijuana can help to boos up the deeply affected economy that we have today, as taxes could be charged and would really help everyone out a lot.

Some Of Tommy’s Views On Legalizing Cannabis

According to Chong’s interview, growing marijuana is not as expensive as growing other herbs and this could be a great advantage for farmers as well. “There’s little manufacturing cost. You don’t have to do anything except watch it grow and get a couple of hippies to cut it and then put it in a bag,” said Tommy. This means that farmers could increase their revenues very easily by growing this plant and that the government would benefit as well, since they would charge these farmers taxes, charge for certain permits and much more.

Chong also talked about the medical benefits of cannabis and how the market for this herb is growing more every single year. Because there are now nearly 20 States in the US that have approved marijuana for medicinal purposes, Chong believes that the herb will start helping more people as well and that everyone will soon realize how legalizing cannabis can help us a lot more than not allowing people to consume it.

In past interviews, Chong had talked about not being in favor of legalizing marijuana and taxing this herb, but today he says that it is our best option and that he is already planning to use cannabis oil, to treat the cancer that he is suffering from.  Chong described how the oil made from cannabis has helped him to lead a better life and to eliminate the treat of cancer in his life. “I also treated the condition with hemp oil. With the diet, the supplements and the hash oil, plus a session with a world-renowned healer, Adam Dreamhealer, I’m cancer-free. That’s right, I kicked cancer’s ass!” said Tommy.

Legalizing Cannabis Is Something That More People Should Try For

As you can see, cannabis does benefit people in different ways and it can benefit our economy as well. It is time for everyone to admit that legalizing cannabis is the right choice for us and that keeping this herb under strict rules, will only make people desire it even more.

Should Medical Marijuana Be Allowed For Children Too?

Medical Marijuana Can Certainly Help Some Children

There are many people who argue that marijuana should not only be legalized for adults only, as it can also help some of the children who are currently suffering from some very painful diseases and it is certainly much healthier than many of the drugs that these poor kids are already taking right now.

Medical marijuana has lots of benefits and there are plenty of cases, where parents have decided to give this herb to their children and have seen some positive results immediately.  The problem comes when governments decide not to legalize cannabis for children, as it has recently happen in Illinois.

Medical Marijuana Needs To Be Legalized For Everyone

There are many children who suffer from epilepsies and other similar diseases, which can be treated with marijuana and this is why many parents are outraged right now, as they found out that the new bills do not allow children to consume this herb.

Even if the current medical marijuana bill has not been passed in Illinois yet, it is only waiting Governor Pat Quinn’s signature to be accepted and it may become a law very soon. Parents who have children, who can benefit from this herb, will surely continue to fight for their rights and it is something that we need to help them do.

Some politicians are arguing that children should not be exposed to cannabis, but the reality is that it can be as effective as it is for adults and it is not nearly as dangerous as some of the drugs that are currently being prescribed to them. Standford University conducted a study, where they analyzed the results that some children with Doose syndrome, Dravest syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome reacted to medicines that come from the cannabis plant and the results were magnificent.

At least 80% of the children that consumed this cannabis infused medicine, reduced the amounts of seizures that they suffered from in a given period of time, which is certainly a life changing factor, that some of the other prescribed drugs are not accomplishing.  Some of these are even dangerous for kids health and they have proven to have side effects, which can harm a child’s life even more.

Medical Marijuana Has A Lot Of Benefits

Cannabis does not have any side effects and because it is a natural herb, it provides no health risk for the patients and this is why it needs to be legalized for everyone. Children who suffer from epilepsies, could benefit a lot from this herb and it has already been proven that it works many times. There is really no reason for anyone to deny this medicine to a child that is suffering and if we do not do something about this, we are only making our world even worse than it already is.

Medical Marijuana Laws In Australia

Australia Is Making Some Changes To Its Medical Marijuana Laws

It will be this next Friday, when a parliamentary committee inquiry from New South Wales in Australia, will present its results and opinions about changing the current medical marijuana laws in this region of the world and it is very possible that this herb might be legalized on this date.

The local government of New South Wales and other Australian authorities, held many meetings and hearings throughout the month of March and prior months, which will certainly lead to a wiser decision about legalizing cannabis for medicinal purposes here and many are certain that the results that will be announced on Friday will be positive for all of us who support the legalization of cannabis around the world.

MS patients are amongst the people who are most interested in legalizing cannabis for medicinal purposes in New South Wales, as this herb helps to alleviate the pain that they suffer from this disease, which makes their muscles very stiff and is certainly something very hard to live with. At the moment, some of these patients are getting their medicine from the Therapeutic Goods Administration, which is an Australian company that has registered the Sativex brand in this country, which is an alternative to cannabis, but does not work as good as the natural herb does.

Sativex is still on a clinical trial period and if medical marijuana laws are changed on Friday, this trial will surely end or lose importance, as MS patients and other people who can benefit from this herb, will have the opportunity to ease their pains with the real stuff.

Australians Want Medical Marijuana Laws Approved

As you can imagine, there are plenty of people in Australia and New South Wales, who are in total favor of the legalization of cannabis and this will surely help to have a positive result on Friday. While there are many opinions about how this herb should be legalized in Australia and other parts of the world, there is no doubt that it would really help us all. Lesley Brydon, who is the chief executive of Pain Australia, also believes that this herb needs to be legalized for medicinal purposes, but is not in favor of selling it in a bud form. Layney believes that the herb should be sold in a spray or pill form, as this will allow patients to control the amounts of cannabis that they consume, which is something that cannot be done when you smoke this herb or eat it, according to some.

Cancer Voices, is another advocacy group in favor of the legalization of cannabis and they want this herb legalized because they know that it can help patients with cancer to overcome vomiting and nausea that is caused by certain treatments and medications.

Friday Is An Important Day For Medical Marijuana Laws In Australia

As you can see, there are plenty of people who want marijuana legalized around the world and it is more than obvious that it does help patients who suffer from certain diseases. If New South Wales decides to approve marijuana for medicinal purposes on Friday, it will join Canada, Israel, New Zealand, 14 countries in Europe and 18 States in the US, which have already legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes and this proves that we will see medical marijuana approved all over the world very soon.

Marijuana Vending Machines Are A Reality

We Now Have Some Marijuana Vending Machines Ready To Start Working

Believe it or not, we have finally come to a time, where marijuana is being accepted around the world and there are now plenty of cities that allow this herb for medicinal and recreational purposes as well. Today, there are also many entrepreneurs who are thinking about ways to earn money through the upcoming legalization of cannabis and there are now some marijuana vending machines ready to be established in the market. 

You read right, vending machines that will offer marijuana will be available very soon all over the world and there are plenty of entrepreneurs who already have the designs for these machines and there is even one company that already has a few of these machines built and ready to start working. 

The name of this company is Medbox and its main goal is to set up some of their vending machines all around the US in a very short period of time. Their marijuana vending machines cost $50000 USD per unit and they are certainly some of the most secure and well designed vending machines out there. The vending machines cost so much, because they are armored vending machines, they are refrigerated and can sell different types of products, which include cannabis infused brownies, candy made out of pot, green buds and more.

The Marijuana Vending Machines Will Change The World

As you can probably imagine, having vending machines that sell marijuana, would certainly change many things and it is certainly a huge step towards legalizing marijuana. Bruce Bedrick, who is the CEO of Medbox, recently told Businessweek "We are planning to literally dominate the industry...We're a retailer's wet dream. We're the leading player in an industry that's ready to explode" and he is certainly right about the marijuana industry getting ready to explode in the next couple of years. 

While we still need our governments to accept medical and recreational marijuana in most parts of the world, for ideas like the one Bedrick has to flourish, there are already many places of the world were these marijuana vending machines might start working soon and these include the US, Uruguay and Portugal.

The world is changing their view on marijuana and soon we will see more interesting business ideas related to this herb, as legalization is sure to happen one day and it is definitely not very far away.
