Check out this great episode of TYT’s “The Point” —
From the video description: “What is behind the war on cannabis (both medicinal and recreational) and will marijuana ever be legalized? What are the effects of smoking weed? Where does President Obama stand? John Fugelsang (Political Comedian) leads this week’s panel on ‘The Point’ to discuss these issues and more with Cornell Reid (Comedian), Dave Brian (Editor – The 420 Times), and Sam Humeid (Owner – Perennial Holistic Wellness Center). Special thanks to Steve Elliott (Author – “The Little Black Book of Marijuana”), and Dr. Igor Grant (Professor of Psychiatry – UC San Diego) for sending in points.
Thanks to townsquare for posting the video.
Check out this FULL LENGTH documentary, A NORML LIFE (2011) – all about the state of medical marijuana in the US today.
From the description: “A NORML LIFE documentary on the current state of medical marijuana in America. Personal stories from patients, doctors and caregivers verify its medical effectiveness while leading activist rally support to end prohibition.
Chris Burry …. associate producer
Peter Darling …. associate producer
Rod Pitman …. executive producer
Doug Ross …. producer
A NORML Life, goes beyond the recitation of facts and figures to capture the beating heart of the legalization movement, in all its passion, its commitment and its excitement.
It’s an extraordinary job by Pitman, producer Doug Ross and a rich cast of cannabis characters including Seattle Hempfest founder Vivian McPeak (who, near the beginning of the show, rightly says America’s marijuana laws are “fixing a problem that never existed,”), and it wastes no time in going for the emotional resonance which is the reason many of us are involved in this movement.
The documentary, which compellingly tells the proud story of advocates fighting for the legalization of marijuana, was released by Cinema Libre Studios on DVD last week. The film presents a strong case that the use of medical marijuana is effective, and that it is a safe alternative to pharmaceutical medicines.

Recently, Republican Vice Presidential candidate, Paul Ryan spoke out that he personally believes that the legalization of medical marijuana should be handled by the states. Will President Obama follow suit and support his original pre-elected stance to leave medical marijuana legalization to the states? Coming into office, Obama made many promises to leave the state programs alone, but as we all know, his administration went ahead attacking California and Colorado dispensaries, as well as others. This created very little safe access to cannabis for patients. We all hope Obama makes good on his original promise!

I’m back with one of the most popular and best performing vaporizers out there – the Silver Surfer Vaporizer! I got mine a few weeks ago and wanted to give it a lot of solo practice before giving you all a review, as I’d previously only tried it a few times. Although this is meant to be used to tobacco or other herbs, I think it is perfect for medical marijuana patients to use as a cannabis vaporizer. Extremely customizable from the graphics to the hose to the baseplate and even the heat cover – it’s hard to not drool over this thing. With great warrantees, extremely durable aluminum housing and a quick-heat ceramic heating element, this vaporizer is definitely among the top vapes out there.

That’s a good question. I’m sure you’ve all seen the Obama/Harold & Kumar ad floating around. Here is a great answer to that ridiculous ad – what if Obama called an actual marijuana user and not fictional movie characters? This is how one person imagines that conversation would go.
From the video description: (Thanks goes to sidepocketimages for posting the vid!)
On September 3, in what President Obama’s press secretary described as an attempt to appeal to “the youth vote”, the Obama campaign released an ad featuring fictional potheads Harold and Kumar. The President asks them for their support and they agree, mindlessly gobbling junk food and chuckling at cartoons. But the Obama administration has waged a war on marijuana users at a faster pace than President Bush, even attacking state-legal medical marijuana at nearly every turn.
This video shows how a call to a real-life marijuana user might have gone.
