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.

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!
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 🙂
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!
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.
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.”

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.
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.

It’s about time! After two years of waiting on the State to make a move after NJ residents overwhelmingly voted to pass medical marijuana in the state, the registry has finally gone live! State Health Commissioner Mary O’Dowd was the center of attention as the much anticipated medical marijuana registry went into action. About 150 doctors around the state who have registered for the program have had access to the website for a couple of months now in order to familiarize themselves with the process. August 13th was the first day potential patients were able to log on. Although NJ is only allowing patients with debiliating, life-threatening illnesses become patients, we can only hope that future legislation allows ALL patients to participate.
This is a great video I found from Reason.TV about Aaron Sandusky.
From the video description: “This is a Constitutional battle, and we’re going to defend our rights,” says Aaron Sandusky, the owner of a medical marijuana dispensary in Upland, California who now faces federal drug trafficking charges even though he was operating within California state law.
Reason.tv first profiled Sandusky in late 2011 in the midst of a federal crackdown on marijuana dispensaries across California, which occurred despite repeated promises from the Obama administration to lay off operators compliant with state law (Incidentally, the city of Upland, which initiated the legal action against G3, admitted in court that Sandusky was operating within state law). During the production of that video, Sandusky’s storefront and grow house were raided, his assets seized and his product destroyed. But Sandusky was undeterred and joined a lawsuit with several other dispensary owners, challenging the right of city governments to outright ban dispensaries. After a favorable ruling from an appellate court, Sandusky re-opened, and the city of Upland was powerless to stop him. But the Feds were not happy with this outcome.
Sandusky was arrested and charged with six counts of drug trafficking, some of which could carry a life sentence. He’s spent the last seven weeks in a county prison, just awaiting a bond hearing. He finally was granted bail last Friday and is now out on house arrest, where he awaits an October trial to decide his fate. He agreed to sit down with Reason.tv for an interview to discuss his case, the state of medical marijuana in this country, and why this is a cause for which he’s willing to risk it all.
“If I have to go to jail for 20 years defending this, then so be it,” says Sandusky.

This clip is a great segment from Richard French Live – a political commentator who featured the topic of whether it is time to legalize marijuana. This is a great clip to show anyone interested in the subject. There is not only lots of money to be made from marijuana/cannabis, but millions of people that it can help medicinally! LEGALIZE CANNABIS NOW!
