Sanjay Gupta says Feds didn’t address everything re: marijuana

Dr. Sanjay Gupta reacts to the Justice Department’s announcement that it won’t block laws that have legalized marijuana in states like Washington and Colorado.  The primary concern is that the US Government has failed to speak upon rescheduling cannabis or changing laws to allow for easier access to begin studies, as well as provide safe access for patients.


If you have not yet seen CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s documentary about cannabis, please check it out on my page – just a few videos down 🙂

 

Linda rambles about some issues regarding Cannabis

I thought I’d do something a little different and just speak on some issues regarding cannabis.  Warning, I am totally rambling!


The first issue is re: Fairness in re: to access to meds and how cannabis is portrayed.  A lot of patients have issues dealing with money-grubbing cannabis dispensaries, as well as fraudulent review sites that mislead patients into purchasing from some of these sketchy dispensaries, when they otherwise wouldn’t.  I then go into a more specific issue of balance of usage and make a note that cannabis, although we love it, does have some negative side effects if you “over use” it.  I support cannabis wholeheartedly, but I also realize that there are some negatives that really need to be explained and discussed.  I touch on a few things that I haven’t really heard any other activists talk about.  Tell me what you think!

An update from Linda :D

Hey, it’s Linda here! I know I have been slow on getting reviews done, mostly as I have been slow in acquiring new pieces. I wanted to at least make a video to say hello and give you all an update as to what’s been going on here lately.


I believe I mentioned the Cannabis Cup but forgot to mention the Medical Cannabis Cup here in the Bay Area in June – if you’re around, you should make plans to attend!

Either way, check out the video and don’t forget to head over to my Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/itsweedandbombs) for my most updated posts 🙂

Marijuana has quite a history, watch it on this History Channel documentary

Here is “The History of Marijuana” – a documentary as seen on the History Channel.  I am not sure if I’ve posted this already, but this is a fantastic documentary that I’ve watched a few times now – something great to show anyone you know who may not have all of the right information regarding marijuana!


This doc is about an hour and a half long and here on YouTube in its entirety.  I like this one as it features celebrities chiming in, giving a better look into how most people really use marijuana.

Also, for other documentaries and great videos on cannabis and the history of marijuana, feel free to browse through my page as I have tons of videos!

A little cannabis each day keeps a stroke away!

Check out this news clip from earlier this year. A former heart surgeon speaks on the benefits of cannabis to prevent strokes.

Though the description of the original video mentions “eating a bud a day”, we all know eating straight cannabis is pretty gross, and if anything, you’d have to at least bake it into something 🙂

The Point discusses all things cannabis :)

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.

 

 

 

A NORML LIFE – Full length documentary about medical cannabis

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.

Produced by
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.

Disclaimer: This documentary and information is for entertainment only. Marijuana laws vary from State to State and Country to Country. In many growing and possessing marijuana is illegal. By no means is this an endorsement to break or violate any laws.”

Will Obama follow Paul Ryan on his stance on medical marijuana?

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!

Thanks to TheBigPictureRT for posting the video, and The Daily Take for creating it.

Linda reviews the Silver Surfer Vaporizer (SSV)

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.  Check out more information at http://www.silversurfervap.com

And as always, don’t forget to check out my website for all of my video reviews, medical marijuana news, live chat and more!

Obama DEA Has Raided OVER 4 TIMES As Many Medical Marijuana Dispensaries As Bush Did In 8 Years

As much as I would support Obama over Romney – the fact remains that the DEA under this administration has raided over four times as many medical marijuana dispensaries as the DEA under Bush in his entire 8 year term.  This is a direct contradiction of Obama’s promise to leave states alone.  Hopefully, if elected for a second term, we will see more humane treatment of patients and get safer access.  The video goes into it more.  Thanks to MOXNews.com.
