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 🙂
As I’m sure a lot of you know by now, this past week, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta surprisingly made an about-face on his stance on cannabis, specifically using it for medicinal purposes. CNN aired a fantastic documentary on Sunday in which Dr. Gupta meets with various patients around the country who have used cannabis to treat their ailments, most of which showing that cannabis is truly the only thing that helps. It’s a fantastic episode and well worth the watch. For more information, also check out this great article on CNN about the headlines this documentary has made this week – let’s keep this conversation going!
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 guys!! Sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything – I’m working on a redesign here and a whole lot of other stuff. Find me on Facebook (click to the right) and follow me there and on Twitter for the most updated news/info 🙂
Still working on a way to populate my site here with my Facebook posts so that it can be more seamless 🙂
A lot has been going on, so I haven’t had a lot of time to keep everything updated, but I’m still here!
I am in love with this beautiful HBG inline bong! So easy to clean, and packs a real punch! This is made of thick, high quality glass (I want to say Schott Duran like the other great pieces) – made in America – “CALI CERTIFIED”! 😀 I paid less for this piece as I got a deal, but you can find similar inlines of this brand at local headshops or online for probably around $250. I take a few big puffs with this, but must say I love using this mostly with my KO Titanium Domeless nail. Either way, it’s a great piece that is easy to clean and very sturdy and will last you a long time! That is, if you’re not a bong murderer 😉
I love my Incredibowl i420, and someone recently asked about mine and I realized the old review I did for the Incredibowl i420 was hosted on a site that no longer exists, so I thought I’d share it with you again!
This is one of my very first reviews – as you can see my hair grew a lot and I lost some weight since then 🙂
I still absolutely LOVE my Incredibowl – it still packs a punch, still easy to clean and use, and is just.. well, phenomenal! I still use my mini (the m420) as well. Great pipes!

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!
“Selling Weed Legally” is a great documentary put out by VICE (first a magazine, then a fantastic site, go check them out at http://www.vice.com)I have been a huge fan of VICE magazine for most of my life, and here is another great documentary filmed by them. In this video, the VICE peeps visit Otherside Farms, a dispensary in California, and show an explanation of medical marijuana in California.
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 🙂
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.
