interesting, the State only got about a third of what they expected ... maybe it is because it is price too high and people can grow their own f
for free ... ya think :roll:

Falling short: Colorado recreational pot revenues not as high as expected
September 03, 2014 20:43



High hopes in Colorado concerning the revenue generated by the state’s legalized marijuana rules might have been nothing more than a pipe dream. Officials now say pot taxes are bringing in only a portion of what was expected.

Adults in Colorado have since January 1 been able to legally purchase weed for recreational purposes, and the state initially protected that it would pull in at least $33 million in taxes during the first six months. The release of new figures this week shows that the state fell short, however, earning only a comparably meager $12 million between the first of the year and the end of June.

The latest news contrasts heavily with reports from early January when sales in Colorado far exceeded expectations and netted over $1 million on the first of the year, and around $5 million during the first week. That high demand apparently didn't last long, however, and sales have since slumped to well below what was expected.

State Rep. Dan Pabon (D-District 4) told CNN Money that “it’s too early to be worried” about the financial shortcoming just yet, but meanwhile some experts say they’ve already put their finger on why figures are only a fraction of what they had hoped for: Colorado’s legal weed rules indeed allow retailers to sell marijuana in licensed establishments, but high taxes are keeping many customers away from pot shops in lieu of the street dealers that peddle without a permit.

Only 60 percent of potential pot buyers in Colorado will go through legal channels in 2014, according to an estimate from the Marijuana Policy Group, and a Denver, CO Fox News affiliate says high taxes will likely continue to keep those customers out of retail shops, where the state collects an additional 27 cents on every dollar.

Although state-approved shops provide buyers with a legal, sanitary and safe alternative to the black market, Colorado laws allow for adults to grow up to six plants apiece for personal user — which may end up being sold on the street, albeit illegally — and marijuana sold for medicinal purposes is taxed only 2.9 percent. According to the Marijuana Policy Group, around 23 percent of marijuana users in the Rocky Mountain State carry prescription cards that allow them to make those comparable cheaper purchased.

Others, on the other hand, say the relatively lax laws in place for growers are still managing to limit how much weed can be produced, and a limited supply lends to surge in selling prices: the likes of which is also believed to be an impetus in the poor retail store sales.

“Right now we are pretty significantly under what should be produced,” Ron Kammerzell, the deputy senior director of enforcement for the state Department of Revenue, told the Post Independent over the weekend.

“What that does is raises the prices and if the price is too high, then we can’t compete with the black market, and that was our ultimate goal with Amendment 64 — we wanted to eliminate the black market,” added Kammerzell, referring to the bill that brought Colorado the first legal recreational dispensaries for non-medicinal purposes in the United States.

Earlier this year, the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division predicted that residents and visitors will use a total of 130.3 metric tons of pot during 2014, but only 77 metric tons — or around 59 percent — will come from legit sellers.

Although Colorado has the most lax weed laws in the country, selling pot without state approval remains a felony there. Washington became the second state in the US to allow recreational sales earlier this year, and the governor said in February that the state hopes to receive $107 million in revenue through marijuana taxes during the first 12 months the legislation is on the books.

I find it completely amazing, that there are still people taking KEMO ... when it has been proven - since 1974 that Cannibis oil (when eaten - not smoked) KILLS Cancer ... maybe if you actually see it happening, you will be able to get over the programing ... I know its a big step, because this is not the only lie that the medical industry has promoted, to sell their products ... to make sure we STAY sick, so that they can continue to charge outrageous fees for TREATMENTS that don't cure any thing, ... please educate yourself, and don't fall for their lies any longer... eat ORGANIC and use pot to cure your ills ... you don't need the Medical industry - except perhaps to set bones and stitches ... I guess it all boils down to "who do you trust?" your creator or Korporate America - who has not ever "cured" even one disease, but only managed to mask symptoms

Watch as the active ingredient in marijuana, THC, kills cancer cells.

Since 1974 studies have shown that cannabis has anti-tumor effects. The results of the 1974 study, reported in an Aug. 18, 1974, Washington Post newspaper feature, were that cannabis's component, THC, "slowed the growth of lung cancers, breast cancers and a virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives by as much as 36 percent." In 1975 an article in the Journal of the National cancer institute titled "Antineoplastic Activity of Cannabinoids," they reported that "Lewis lung adenocarcinoma growth was retarded by the oral administration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabinol (CBD). Mice treated for 20 consecutive days with THC and CBD had reduced primary tumor size."
In 1998, a research team at Madrid's Complutense University Led by Dr. Manuel Guzman discovered that THC can selectively induce programmed cell death in brain tumor cells without negatively impacting surrounding healthy cells. They reported in the March 2002 issue of "Nature Medicine" they had destroyed incurable brain cancer tumors in rats by injecting them with THC. And in 2007 even Harvard Researchers found that compounds in cannabis cut the growth of lung cancer. There is also an organization called The SETH Group that showed compounds in cannabis can stop the growth of human glioblastoma multiforma (GBM) brain cancer cells. The SETH Group says "No chemotherapy can match this nontoxic anti-cancer action." Even last year in 2012 a pair of scientists at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco found THC stops metastasis in many kinds of aggressive cancer.

HERE is some breaking new that will greatly impact the millions who suffer from HEPATITUS C in the US (and around the world) !

Marijuana can cure Hepatitis C, WIT research shows
By Dr. Matt Stone on May 31, 2014


Press Release

Dr. Matt Stone, PHD
Chief of Staff, Wyoming Institute of Technology
June 1st, 2014

For Immediate Release

Cheyenne, WY – Hepatitis C has negatively impacted millions of lives, and medical researchers have tried for decades to develop a vaccine with no luck. But today, our team at the Wyoming Institute of Technology is pleased to announce that, with the help of our pharmaceutical partners, we’ve cracked the code and can deliver a cost-effective vaccine and cure to the world within the next 14 to 18 months… and we owe it all to cannabis.

Our research into the field of hepatitis C vaccination began last fall, after one of our interns had alleged that she had completely “cured” herself of hepatitis C by edifying and vaporizing a strain of cannabis that she herself had invented, which she calls “Chunky Crimson.” Upon further investigation, we found that she had not actually cured herself completely, but her initial findings prompted us to launch a full study, which began in our facility in Denver, Colorado in January of 2014.

In May, the WIT team, working closely with a medical marijuana dispensary in Denver and also with a team from GlaxoSmithKline, developed a trial medication based on “Chunky Crimson” which is consumed three times daily, and coupled with a suppository admitted once daily. Human trials showed that 99.8% of recipients of the test drug were fully cured of Hepatitis C, while the remaining 0.2% showed signs of reversal, and could theoretically be cured with continued administering of the rectal suppository alone.

Pending FDA approval, WIT hopes to begin human trials on a needle-administered vaccine shot later this year. Meanwhile, the FDA is also reviewing our existing tested drug, which GlaxoSmithKline hopes to begin selling on the market in 2015. Both drugs should hopefully be available globally in 2016.

WIT does not endorse the illegal production or sale of marijuana. However, those with legal access to medical or recreational marijuana, in states where marijuana products are deregulated, are encouraged to administer at-home trials using legal marijuana. The marijuana should be smoked, edified, and/ or inserted rectally once per day. Please email us at feedback@witscience.org and describe any reactions you may encounter while attempting this.

Initiative to Legalize Cannabis Receives Approval from Mississippi Secretary of State

Featured Posts of the Week, News

December 31, 2014

by TheJointBlog

The group Mississippi Mississippi for Cannabis has received approval from the Secretary of State to begin collecting signatures on their initiative to legalize recreational cannabis. The group will be required to collect 21,233 signatures from registered voters in four different districts by October 2nd to put the initiative to a vote of the people in the 2016 general election.

If placed on the ballot and approved into law, the initiative would legalize the possession and private cultivation of cannabis for those 21 and older, without setting any limits on how much a person can possess or grow. Cannabis retail outlets would also be authorized.

http://thejointblog.com/initiative-legalize-cannabis-receives-approval-from-mississippi-secretary-of-state/

it is so great for me to see other states "saving themselves" by getting closer to Nature ... can you imagine how tall Cannibis will grow in Mississippi

Activists have bud2.com collected more than enough signatures on an initiative to decriminalize cannabis to put it to a vote of the people in the April, 2015 election in Wichita, Kansas, according to the group Kansas for Change. The group plans to submit the signatures to city officials on January 7th.

If approved into law, the initiative would make the possession of up to 32 grams of cannabis a criminal infraction of $50, rather than a misdemeanor which carries with it the potential of up to a year in prison.

Kansas for Change attempting to put a similar initiative to a vote in last November’s election, though they fell less than 50 signatures short. This time, however, the group focused heavily on gathering signatures from registered Wichita voters; in total they plan to submit over 4,000 signatures, with 2,928 being required to put the initiative to a vote.

Wichita is the largest city in Kansas, and is the 49th largest city in the United States.

Legislation to Legalize Cannabis Filed in Arizona

Featured Posts of the Week, News

January 3, 2015

by TheJointBlog

Quote:
Arizona State Representative Mark Cardenas has filed a proposal to legalize cannabis, as well as a proposal to decriminalize cannabis, both of which will be discussed in the upcoming legislative session which begins on January 12th.

House Bill 2007 would legalize the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis for those 21 and older, and would allow them to purchase the substance from state-licensed cannabis retail outlets. Cannabis would be taxed at $50 an ounce; according to a report released in December, a $50 an ounce tax on cannabis could bring in over $48 million in taxes annually for the state.

In case House Bill 2007 doesn’t gain traction, Representative Cardenas has also filed House Bill 2006, which would decriminalize cannabis possession, making the possession of up to an ounce a simple ticket rather than an arrestable misdemeanor.

According to polling released in 2013, 56% of Arizona residents support legalizing cannabis.

Washington State Garners $16 Million in Taxes from Legal Cannabis in 2014Image

Featured Guest, Featured Posts of the Week, News

January 2, 2015

by TheJointBlog

Quote:
With less than100 stores operating throughout the state, and despite sales not taking starting until July, Washington State garnered over $16 million in excise taxes from over $64 million in cannabis sold in 2014, according to recent figures released by the state’s Liquor Control Board.

In total, 99 cannabis retail outlets have been licensed to sale cannabis in Washington, though not all of them are currently operating. The Liquor Control Board plans to eventually distribute licenses to 334 cannabis stores. Of the stores currently operating, New Vansterdam in Vancouver brought in the most sales, with $2,748,875 sold. Herbal Nation ($2.6 million) and Cannabis City ($2,469,905), both in Seattle, were the second and third in total sales.

Taking all cannabis sales into consideration, including sales from growers to retailers, there was $64 million sold in 2014, equaling over $16 million in taxes for the state. The highest sales day was the day after Thanksgiving, with roughly $1 million sold on that day alone.

The amount of cannabis sold, and taxes earned, is expected to increase substantially in 2015, as more outlets open, and more growers and processors are licensed.

Study: No Longitudinal Association Between Cannabis Use and Depression
Guest Articles, News, Studies

December 21, 2014

by TheJointBlog

By Paul Armentano, NORML

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL — Cannabis use is not associated joint with increased incidences of major depression, according to longitudinal data published online ahead of print in the Journal of Affective Disorders.

An international team of investigators from Israel and Canada assessed the association between cannabis use, major depressive disorder (MDD) and bipolar disorder (BP) in a three-year prospective study.

Authors determined that future incidence of MDD was not higher among cannabis users compared to nonusers. They reported: “Our results show no significant association between cannabis use and the incidence of major depression.

Conversely, MDD was found to be associated with increased incidence of cannabis use. Regarding BPD, though crude associations were found between cannabis use and consequent mania/hypomania as well as baseline BPD and consequent initiation of cannabis use, in both cases these associations were not maintained in adjusted models of analysis.”

Investigators concluded, “Our results do not support a longitudinal association between cannabis use and increased incidence of MDD; rather, they indicate an inverse relationship between the two, which may be attributed to self-medication factors.”

Full text of the study, “The association between cannabis use and mood disorders: A longitudinal study,” appears in the Journal of Affective Disorders.

The Miracle of CBD- Now Legal in All 50 States

With all the talk of Medical Marijuana and it’s many benefits, and state after state legalizing and/or decriminalizing Marijuana use both medically and for private use, it’s a wonder that CBD oil is still in its infancy in the US. In fact, most people don’t know there are very potent forms of CBD derived from the hemp plant that have incredible impact on human health and are legally available in all 50 states. So, if current reports and studies are correct, CBD Oil from the hemp plant will be the king of the Hemp and Cannabis world very soon, and it looks like we’re all going to be a lot healthier because of it. Read on…

CBD Endorsed by Dr. Sanjay Gupta of CNN

medical-cannabis-sanjay-gupta

CBD Oil is simply the most exciting development currently coming out of the new thinking on Hemp and Cannabis. The new thinking that sees these substances not as negative or to be made illegal… but, as substances that should be cultivated, embraced, and used for their many proven health benefits.

It’s this new thinking that made Dr Sanjay Gupta of CNN do a series of documentaries and completely change his stance on medical marijuana, Cannabis and Hemp. Dr. Gupta’s reports on CNN have been a game-changer ever since he featured CBD miracle stories in his special documentary series called “Weed” that first aired in 2013, and the world was simply astonished at the stories he profiled and the positive effects CBD Oil has proven to have on human health.

Ailments that CBD seems to help

It’s incredible what our research for this article has shown… as more and more people use CBD, and more research, studies and reporting are done it seems that the vast majority of people who use CBD are claiming amazing and sometimes almost instant relief from a wide range of common ailments. We’ve listed several of them below;

Cancers
Epilepsy, and other neurological disorders
Anxiety and depression
Insomnia and sleep disorders
Pain and inflammation
Arthritis
Spasms
MS
PTSD
And much, much more!


In fact, CBD Oil has so many health benefits to the human body we are already starting our research on this for an article to appear in March 2015, and hundreds of people have already offered to give us their testimonials. If you use CBD and want to let us know the results you are getting please contact us. Perhaps we can add you to our featured article mentioned above.

CBD Oil is also proving it should be part of everyone’s daily health regimen

canadians-cbd-oil-04-14-720x340In addition to helping treat serious health issues, CBD Oil is also proving to be the ultimate “anti-disease”supplement that can boost the immune and human endocannabinoid system… helping to promote better health and fend off disease and illnesses. To top all of this off, there are no known side effects, drug interactions, or other negative aspects to taking CBD Oil and many health minded people are adding CBD Oil to their daily routine and reporting great benefits in doing so.

Now legal in all 50 states

Because CBD Oil from the Hemp plant does not contain illegal amounts of THC it is legal in all 50 states. This is very important to people all over the US who are in need of CBD but can’t get it locally. In addition, legal CBD is available for home delivery in all 50 states meaning many people don’t have to relocate to a state with legalized Medical Marijuana. Also in states where medical marijuana is legal, consumers using this hemp plant form of CBD don’t have to go through the hassle, and for some the embarrassment, of getting a medical marijuana card.

What our research showed

Throughout our research for this article we found that claims of CBD’s health value was very well documented and valid, and everyone that we spoke to currently on a CBD regimen was very happy with the results they were getting… and we heard of zero negative side effects. In fact, many of these satisfied and very relieved people mentioned they got their CBD from the leading source HempLife Today™ (www.HempLifeToday.com)

We checked out many different brands and HempLife Today’s brand CannazALL™ seemed to be the most potent and best priced

When we research a story and find something we feel has the capacity to be life changing for our readers we pass along the information, and in this case we are extra enthusiastic about what we discovered…Specifically a company called HempLife Today™ and their CBD product CannazALL™.

CannarALL LogoHempLife Today™ prides itself on the award winning purity and quality of its CBD oil. CannazALL™ is 24% CBD which is about as high a percentage as you can get with a concentration of 247mg of CBD per gram, and a quick call to their main office convinced us of their commitment to this new and exciting therapeutic regimen. HempLife Today™ offers discounts on all sizes of their CannazALL™ CBD from small to extra large, and even offers an additional free gram on their large and extra large sizes.

This, along with their other discounts, free shipping, and the quality, makes HempLife Today’s CannazAll™ the best value for CBD Oil that we found while researching this article.

To learn more we recommend you check it out yourself at www.HempLifeToday.com today.

WEED 2 is on You-tube now ... millions of views of the 1st "WEED" CNN report demanded more information ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2qFDb8LExo

I cried all the way through this docu - for JOY ! ... finally these innocent children will get what they need to cure them ... they never had to suffer in the first place, and all the people who have died from cancer - didn't need to die ... we don't ever "need" to be sick again ... if that doesn't make you cry for joy - nothing will


to me --- this is what the LTO meant, when they said to re-establish our relationship with Nature - and release our dependency on the Hierarchies

Marijuana smokers now have a new place to put on their bucket lists: Alaska, which on Tuesday became the third state to officially OK marijuana use.

Following Colorado's lead, voters passed the Alaska Marijuana Legalization ballot measure in November. Legalization became official on Tuesday, which means that now "the use of marijuana (is) legal for persons 21 years of age or older."

There are limits to this law, as there are in similar ones in other states. People still can't legally have more than 1 ounce of marijuana on them. Nor can they harvest more than 4 ounces in their home. And consuming marijuana in public and driving while high are no-nos.

Then there's the fact that the law isn't fully implemented yet. The regulatory structure allowing for entrepreneurs to set up shops like those found in Colorado is still in the works, so right now no one can legally make a living selling the drug.

Not to mention that, under federal law, marijuana is classified as a Schedule 1 narcotic. That makes its use a federal crime.

Is weed legal in your state?

Still, as in many states, there seems to be movement in Washington on that front. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder told CNN in October he is "cautiously optimistic" on the subject of marijuana legalization. Holder said the Justice Department is focused on marijuana distribution to minors, interstate trafficking and drug violence, not incarcerating "low level people who are simply there for possessory offenses."

In the absence -- some might say in defiance -- of any sweeping federal change on marijuana, some states have taken the initiative.

Twenty-three states still prohibit cannabis outright. But the rest of them have either legalized medical marijuana or decriminalized marijuana possession.

Colorado became the first to go one step further in legalizing pot, followed by Washington state. And now there's one more in Alaska

Washington DC has become the latest place in the United States to legalise the possession of small amounts of marijuana.

As of midnight on Thursday (05:00 GMT), people who use the drug in private no longer face prosecution.

The change has created tension between the city's mayor and Congress.

Washington DC joins Alaska, Colorado, and Washington state as the only places in the US that allow the use of the drug for recreational purposes.

Residents and visitors to the city over the age of 21 can possess as much as 2oz (56g) of cannabis, and may grow a few plants at home.

Buying and selling the drug remains illegal, as does smoking it in public.

The plan was overwhelmingly agreed in a referendum last November.
Jason Chaffetz Representative Chaffetz warned the city's mayor against legalising the drug

But the vote revived tensions between local officials and Congress.

Washington DC - a federal district, not a state - is required to seek congressional approval for much of its legislation.

In a letter sent on Tuesday, two members of Congress warned Mayor Muriel Bowser that she would be breaking US law by proceeding.

They said that a national budget bill passed in December prevents the legalisation of marijuana in Washington.

But Ms Bowser and other officials believe that the legalisation is still valid since it was approved by voters before Congress passed the budget bill.
Muriel Bowser Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has defied a warning from members of Congress

In the letter, the congressmen warned her that by enacting the new rules she would "be doing so in knowing and wilful violation of the law".

Speaking to the Washington Post newspaper, Representative Jason Chaffetz, one of the letter's signatories, warned that she could face "very severe consequences", adding: "You can go to prison for this."

Ms Bowser said: "We do disagree on a matter of law. There are reasonable ways to resolve that without us threatening him or he us."

While any criminal prosecution would have to come from the US Department of Justice, Congress could withhold Washington DC's funding for other initiatives to pressure Ms Bowser.

Boldest Move Against the Drug War to Date Just Came Out of Texas, from a Republican

By Jay Syrmopoulos on March 4, 2015

The state’s immoral war on drugs is now bipartisanly opposed


Austin, Texas – In a bold piece of legislation, Rep. David Simpson (R) filed a bill that would delete any mention of marijuana from state law. It would completely deregulate it and treat it as any common crop.

In a press release, Simpson said he supported regulating marijuana like the state regulates “tomatoes, jalapeños or coffee.”

Everything that God made is good, even marijuana” said state Rep. Simpson. “The conservative thought is that government doesn’t need to fix something that God made good.”

A recent poll by Pew Research has shown that 63 percent of Republicans under the age of 34 support legalization of marijuana (vs. 77 percent of Democrats of the same age.)

This information indicates that both major parties are coming around to the realization that the drug war has done significant damage to the social fabric of U.S. society, and a systemic change is necessary.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Simpson said that may of his Republican colleagues were in support of repealing prohibition and also considered the War on Drugs to be an “abysmal failure.”

Currently, the U.S. has more non-violent drug offenders incarcerated than any other country on earth. A staggering 25 percent of all people incarcerated worldwide, are being held in a U.S. jail or prison. This fact becomes even more disturbing when combined with the knowledge that the U.S. represents only 5 percent of the world population.

In a break from the approach of taxation and regulation, taken in all of the numerous other states that have reformed their marijuana laws, the Texas bill would offer no regulation or taxation.

Simpson told KETK that he would like to “reframe the current marijuana discussion” by focusing on prohibition repeal in terms of conservative values such as deregulation and less government.

The issue was hotly contested at the Texas Republican Party convention in Fort Worth. Numerous delegates supported legalization but ultimately voted to oppose legalization in the official party platform.

“It’s the official party position that we don’t favor legalization of marijuana, however it should be noted that a sizable minority voted in favor of allowing medical marijuana usage,” Steve Munisteri, chairman of the Republican Party of Texas, told the Houston Chronicle. “It was hotly contested by a sizable number of delegates on both sides.”

In typical police state fashion, spokesman for the Sheriff’s Association of Texas, AJ Lauderback said, “we’ll oppose [Simpson’s] bill and any bill that wishes to legalize marijuana in the State of Texas.” He said that marijuana is a “gateway drug,” and that society bore high costs such as drug rehab programs and users driving under the influence.

These statements are simply outright lies, as the true cost to society is locking up non-violent drug offenders and criminalizing citizens that committed a crime against no one.

“The conservative approach, the liberty approach, is to recognize force and violence is not a good way to deal with drug abuse,” Simpson said. “Putting people in prison and teaching them a whole lot about crime, separating them from the family, taking away the breadwinners simply for possessing a plant that God made—that’s wrong.”

Rather than treating people suffering from addiction as criminals, with enormous associated costs of incarceration, addiction should instead be regarded as a public health issue. This approach could be done so at a fraction of the cost of incarceration.

For his part, Simpson believes in a small government that plays a very limited role.

“We should use our resources in law enforcement to deal with murder, with rape, with theft, but just possessing a substance that God made is not wrong,” he said.

Almost half of states in the U.S. have legal medical marijuana and four states have legalized recreation marijuana. There are two bills in Congress that would completely legalize and regulate federally. The winds of change in the drug policy debate are blowing strongly in favor of ending prohibition.

The approach outlined in this bill should be used as a model for all marijuana legislation going forward

well, it has become apparent that the Pharm cos are feeling threatened by MMJ .. because they have just made CBD (the active ingredient in medical mj ) ILLEGAL --- so apparently it DOES WORK ! and is cutting into their profits ... even though the CBDs do NOT have any noticable effect (won't get you high - useless for "recreaction") they start to work IMMEDIATELY to repair damaged cells ... and right up until now - it was legal to get this CURE, on line - in all fifty states - for a reasonable price ... here's a vid to explain the new laws

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=278&v=COUgoJU4u3g

this is a huge step backwards ... and I really feel sorry for those who are using this cheap and effective cure - especially for children - where it's use has made such huge strides ... not to mention how it has boosted our economy (here in Colorado)

interesting side-note - Trump approves MMJ's use and says that it should be a State issue and the feds should back out of trying to legislate it.(and so did Dr Ron Paul)

Runner’s high: the athletes who use marijuana to improve their training

Stoned marathon runners may seem like walking contradictions, but there are hints the drug and long-distance running could go hand-in-hand
Avery Collins is one of the many runners who say smoking or ingesting marijuana reduced pain, fatigue and anxiety during long runs.

Josiah Hesse in Denver

Monday 2 May 2016 07.00 EDT

Avery Collins speaks with the snow-bro drawl typical of many young Coloradans.

With his bloodshot, blue eyes peeking out from under blond curls and a low-slung hat, he could easily fit in with the stoners at a 4/20 festival.
But Collins isn’t talking about the effects of marijuana. He’s talking about the runner’s high. The 25-year-old ultramarathoner is a marijuana user, just not the stereotypical couch-locked stoner living on junk food and video games. In the last three years, he’s completed 30 ultramarathons – five of which were a hundred miles each – and a 200-mile race through the Rocky Mountains, which he won with a time of 65 hours.

Avery says that eating cannabis edibles before and during a run, instead of slowing him down, as one might think, actually enhances the experience.

“It was amazing,” he recalls of his first time combining pot and running. “It helps me stay in the moment and embrace what’s going on right then and there.”

Collins is quick to state that while he enjoys running high, he never uses it during races and doesn’t think his success should be credited to pot. Currently, the World Anti-Doping Agency lists marijuana as a banned substance in competitions, and many high-profile marathons test runners for pot. Which raises the question: is marijuana a performance-enhancing drug?

Despite the prohibition, running on weed has become an increasingly popular trend among athletes, who use it either as a way to avoid fatigue, boredom or anxiety during long runs, or as a pain-reliever and anti-inflammatory medication during recovery periods. Another leading ultramarathoner, Jenn Shelton, told the Wall Street Journal that she uses cannabis in her training, as does triathlete Clifford Drusinsky. And who could forget Arnold Schwarzenegger ripping a joint in the documentary Pumping Iron.

Meanwhile, the legal cannabis industry has been carving out a place in the world of long-distance running. Marijuana edibles company Incredibles and bong manufacturer Roll-uh-Bowl have sponsored Collins, and the cannabis cultivation company Cresco Labs recently sponsored the Chicago marathon.

Two years ago the 4/20 Games began touring the US, hosting runs and concerts to promote athletics among marijuana users. Online communities such as Cannafit and Norml athletics are connecting stoner athletes, along with running groups like Run On Grass in Denver.

Neurobiological research

While this dynamic may contradict the stoner stereotype, recent research in neurobiology suggests that marijuana and long-distance running may have more to do with each other than many think.

“The runner’s high, as it’s been traditionally described, has been presumed to be caused by opioid peptides like endorphins,” says Gregory Gerdeman, assistant professor of biology at Eckerd College who has studied the effect of exercise on mood and brain chemistry. But endorphins don’t cross into the blood-brain barrier, he explains, so the natural euphoria that long-distance runners experience is likely not caused by endorphins, but by the brain’s endocannabinoid system.

When Collins (or anyone) consumes marijuana, it is the brain’s cannabinoid receptors that receive the THC in marijuana and deliver the psychoactive effect. This endocannabinoid system also plays a part in regulating appetite, pain-sensation, emotions, memory, and much more.

Dr Johannes Fuss, researcher at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, authored a study that, as he puts it, “investigated the neurobiological mechanisms that mediate the emotional benefits after acute exercise, often termed as a runner’s high”. Fuss’s work found that the endocannabinoid system plays a central role in the emotional aspects of running.

“Some researchers argue that long distance running might have evolved in our ancestors when forests were replaced by open savannas in Africa,” Fuss said. “This land conversion allowed the chasing of prey by endurance running. Reduced sensation of pain and less anxiety through long-distance running would have been a benefit for running hunters.”
Is the euphoria long-distance runners experience linked to the brain’s endocannabinoid system?

“When volunteers exercise for 30 minutes, the level of the endocannabinoid anandamide in their bloodstream goes up,” says Gerdeman. “In one study, we found that the increase of feelings of wellbeing in patients was tightly correlated to levels of anandamide in their bloodstream. So we started talking about anandamide as a neurobiological reward for running. It makes you feel good ... And anandamide acts like THC in many ways. It gets its name from ananda, which means bliss in sanskrit.”

A performance-enhancing drug?

So far there have been no definitive studies on how marijuana and long-distance running work in concert. In her Wall Street Journal interview, Jenn Shelton said she never consumed marijuana during competition, because she believed it did enhance performance. It’s not inconceivable that if the human brain’s endocannabinoid system regulates fatigue, that an artificial stimulation of this system with marijuana could further reduce both physical and mental exhaustion, thereby bringing it ever closer to the designation of a performance enhancing drug.

The World Anti-Doping Agency declined to be interviewed for this story, but said in a statement that in 2013 they raised the levels of acceptable marijuana in an athlete’s system so that out-of-competition use would not disqualify them. Yet any use just before a sporting event remains prohibited.

The Anti-Doping Agency are not alone in their distaste for pot. The NFL have often been criticized for their ban on bud, as many football players argue it’s a healthy alternative to painkillers. Last week Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee was immediately drug tested after tweeting out a few pot jokes on 4/20. The NCAA also has long-held a zero tolerance policy with marijuana, but is currently looking at softening their approach, under the argument that it is not a performance enhancing drug.

Gerdeman warned that for anyone new to running (or marijuana, for that matter), it would probably be unwise to go mixing the two.

“It’s conceivable that cannabis could benefit someone who is just starting an exercise routine,” he said, but “cannabis use elevates the heart rate, so for someone who isn’t used to exercising, it could make them lightheaded and have a spike in blood pressure. It could be dangerous for someone who is older with emergent cardiovascular disease.”

Whether marijuana is harmful, a performance enhancement, or somewhere in between, there is still a social stigma against cannabis that makes athletes reluctant to be associated with it.

“I’d say 50% of the runners I meet are avid cannabis users, whether it’s at night or all day or just during or after runs,” Collins said. “I’d say almost none of them are open about it.”

“I know a lot of long-distance runners that are in the closet about their cannabis use,” says Chris Barnicle, a former professional runner turned marijuana advocate who promotes himself as “The World’s Fastest Stoner”.

“There is an ignorant stereotype about people who use marijuana not being athletic, but that’s because they aren’t often represented. The public only sees a misrepresentation of people who do [hash] dabs all day long and aren’t active.”

Pennsylvania takes states allowing medical marijuana to new high

Keystone state is 24th to legalize cannabis use for health reasons
‘What we’re doing today is the healer’ says state Republican senator


Associated Press in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Sunday 17 April 2016 15.21 EDT
http://www.theguardian.com/society/2016/apr/17/pennsylvania-legalizes-medical-marijuana

Pennsylvania on Sunday became the 24th US state to legalize a comprehensive medical marijuana program.

The Democratic governor, Tom Wolf, signed the bill into law in the afternoon, surrounded by a jubilant crowd of supporters at the Capitol building in Harrisburg.

“Marijuana is medicine and it’s coming to Pennsylvania,” said Democratic state senator Daylin Leach, the bill’s cosponsor.

The bill’s drafters say it could take two years to write regulations and get retailers opened, but a provision allows parents to legally administer medical marijuana to their children before the bill takes effect in a month.

The bill sets standards for tracking plants, certifying physicians and licensing growers, dispensaries and physicians. Patients can take marijuana in pill, oil, vapor, ointment or liquid form, but will not be able to legally obtain marijuana to smoke or grow.


“Opioid abuse has no party, has no color, has no religion,” Vereb said. “Let’s face it, that’s the killer. What we’re doing today is the healer.”

Among those celebrating the victory was Dana Ulrich, who has fought for legal access to the drug in the belief that it would help her eight-year-old daughter Lorelei, who has numerous seizures every day.

“I never doubted for one second that this day would come,” she told the crowd, thanking patient advocates and caregivers as well as lawmakers and the governor.

“When you get a group of truly dedicated people together that have the same goal and the same mind and the same hearts, you can achieve anything.”

Wolf called it “a great, great day for Pennsylvania, but more important, a great day for Pennsylvanians”. He said he and lawmakers were responding not to a special interest group or to campaign contributors, but to “a real human need”.

“When you have people who represent a cause as eloquently and in as heartfelt a way as the advocates for this have done, it shows that we can actually get something done that means something,” Wolf said.

After Legalizing Recreational Weed, Colorado Has Lowest Teen Use in the Country
Carey Wedler

Friday, June 24, 2016

https://fee.org/articles/after-legalizing-recreational-weed-colorado-has-lowest-teen-use-in-the-country/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

Cannabis prohibitionists have long cautioned that legalizing the plant will inevitably lead to increased use among teens, couching their restrictive beliefs in concern for the youth. While some of these concerns may be genuine, a recent survey from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment demonstrates — for the second year in a row — that youth in Colorado do not use cannabis any more than teens in other parts of the country. In fact, by at least one measure, they use less.

The Healthy Kids Colorado survey is a “voluntary survey that collects anonymous, self-reported health information from middle and high school students across Colorado,” according to the initiative’s website. Over 17,000 middle- and high-schoolers throughout the state were randomly selected to participate. The survey is conducted every other year, and the 2015 version, released this week, confirmed the 2013 findings that marijuana use among teens in Colorado had fallen flat.

As the Denver Post reported:

“The 2013 version of the survey found that 19.7 percent of teens had used marijuana in the past month. The 2015 version puts that number at 21.2 percent, but Larry Wolk, the executive director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, said that increase is not statistically significant — meaning it could be a wiggle in the data and not a meaningful increase. In 2009, at the beginning of the state’s boom in medical marijuana stores, the rate was 24.8 percent.”

The survey analysts found 78 percent of teens, roughly four out of five, had not used cannabis in the last month.

In addition to the survey’s conclusions that cannabis use among youth failed to skyrocket — as detractors from legalization predicted it would — the survey found cannabis use among teens in the state was actually lower than teens around the country, solidifying prior research that has found teen use does not increase with legalization. Whereas 21.7 percent of teens across the country currently use cannabis, 21.2 percent do so in Colorado. While the difference is small — and therefore attributable to statistical variables — at the very least, the rates are nearly identical, indicating legalizing the plant does not create a cavalcade of teenage stoners wantonly puffing dope on the streets.

Everyone in Colorado may get a pot tax refund
by Katie Lobosco @KatieLobosco

http://money.cnn.com/2015/03/02/pf/taxes/colorado-pot-tax-refund/

Thanks to Colorado's new pot tax and a quirky state law, residents may get a special one-time tax refund next year.

The total could be about $59 million. That's how much the state expects to collect from taxes on the sale of recreational marijuana, which Colorado legalized last year. Some of that money was slated for schools, but it may go back into taxpayers' pockets instead.

The reason for the refund: Colorado is expected to collect more in total tax revenue than it thought it would this year. That's not permitted in a year the state rolls out a new tax, which this time was the 28% pot tax.

The pot tax itself didn't generate as much money as expected.

But the state is poised to take in $219 million more in total revenue than it thought it would during the current fiscal year, which ends June 30.

Here's what happened.

Whenever a new tax is implemented, a law in Colorado aimed at protecting taxpayers' rights goes into effect.

It requires the state to estimate its total annual tax collections, and that number effectively serves as a cap on the amount of taxes it can keep.

Colorado issued such an estimate when it introduced the pot tax, and now it looks all but certain that total state taxes will surpass that threshold.

"We would have to experience a pretty significant economic downturn between now and June not to be in excess [of the cap]," said Phyllis Resnick, an economist at Colorado State University.


That means a refund is likely in order. And under the law, the state will have to give back the money collected from the new tax -- the $59 million or so it expects to collect on pot sales.

When I used to run 5 miles a day through rain, sleet and snow for some years, I found that I didn't need anything other than running itself at that time, to experience runners high for the natural endorphins produced from such aerobic activity, not to speak of how much more energetic I felt for going to University back then and working otherwise. It was a natural high, no outside stimulus required.

don't knock it, til you've tried it Shay ... the fact that our bodies have 5 "Receptors" designed specifically for the CBDs found in Cannabis, reveals, that our Creator intended for us to use this plant - that is available freely (unconditionally) from Nature, and Science has not found a degenerative disease, that it can not cure, is pretty convincing evidence that it was designed to enhance our state of being - because it doesn't just mask the symptoms it CURES the source of our dis-ease - I suggest you do some research, with an open mind.

it really just reveals how programed an individual has been, when they reject what Our Creator designed Nature to provide - UNconditionally - Jame gave us the "formula" to (self)realize the Sovereign Integral state of consciousness ... that will allow us to experience the Independence that we are destined to achieve, to fulfill the purpose of our creation, in the PCI, in several places

James' answer to question #3: Earth/Nature + Individual Preparation = Sovereign Integral Realization.

in answer to question #4 : I believe Earth/Nature are the primary catalysts that First Source is orchestrating to support humanity’s realization of itself as Sovereign Integrals.

Answer 12 from James: The transition of the Earth is not dependent whatsoever on any savior or technology. Bear in mind that the human family, dimensional beings, Earth, Nature, and Universe are all unified in the Tone of Equality (as described in the WingMakers philosophy). This equality is precisely why separation is not real. Anything that is of separation exists in deception or the HMS.


Answer 16 from James:Only the Self, the Sovereign Integral, operating in harmony with Earth/Nature can stand-up to the Elite and usher in the era of transparency and expansion.

The Earth is conducting itself in this equality and that is all that is required.

I don't have to try poison to know its effects, I have no desire to prove it by taking it. And I am not saying cannabis is poison either. I am more an advocate of , "if we can do it naturally from within without any outside dependencies the more free we are." It's not easy to say the least and for those who chose otherwise, fine, its not for me to judge. Smoking dope, which you have long advocated on this forum for years now even before you got Lymes Disease, is a very weak argument for running or for any athletic activity for that matter. Its the use of the oil that is advocated for various bodily conditions and afflictions and is much more potent than your smoke and the medical stuff doesn't make you high like you like to be. I ran 5 miles a day for years without ever doing any kind of drug. What for? Runners high has nothing to do with your drugs its what the brain naturally produces from aerobic activity not to speak of what it does for the body. Science is proving that the brain naturally produces everything you smoke your dope for, minus any pesticides or herbicides in commercially grown brands which is most definitely NOT good for the lungs in particular. Just be aware of how the plant is grown and whether chemicals are used against bugs and weeds etc.
It's a matter of knowing how to access those cannabinoids naturally. Why are you so stuck on drugs which make you addicted to them when there are other more natural ways of attaining the same thing?( moreTHC content has been bred into the plant unbalancing the overall effect of the plant in giving optimal benefits) The WMM is full of various techniques and info to train our consciousness which is the foundation for every cure there could possibly be for any disease or condition of the human body, emotions, and mind. It's the HMS that keeps people distracted and diverted and dependent on drugs, alcohol and whatever else, to keep them ignorant about the Sovereign Integral they are and what that can naturally do. I am not judging you or those who do depend on medical marijuana until we learn that everything we need is within us and that is why after the Grand Portal discovery, disease will disappear and all other HMS inflictions meant to keep us distracted and diverted from knowing the powerful co-creators we are naturally within.

Endocannabinoids

“Research on its psychological effects [that of the cannabis plant] led directly to the discovery of a new chemical signaling system in the human body which is now recognized as playing a crucial role in regulating our neurology and physiology (Werner, 2011, p. 9).” Would it surprise you to know that cannabinoids exist in the human body? They also exist in most living creatures, and possibly even in single-celled-organisms. Endocannabinoids are produced in the human body to help govern the physiological process of:


~ pain modulation
~immune function
~newborn suckling
~appetite reward
~thermoregulation
~memory
~inflammation regulation (Abrams, 2011)

This is where the pharmocological properties of cannabis reside.

Cannabidiol (CBD)

CBD is the second most common cannabinoid in medical marijuana and the most common in hemp plants (Russo, 2011). CBD rich cannabis provides potent therapeutic benefits without the euphoria or lethargy of many high THC varieties. CBD and THC are believed to have synergistic effect meaning that when they are both present at therapeutic levels they are more effective together than they are alone. While THC is widely known for its psychoactive properties, CBD may be best known for its ability to counterbalance anxiety, tachycardia, hunger and sedation caused by THC (Russo, 2011).


CBD, along with other cannabinoids was once considered a minor cannabinoids under the shadow of THC. What we know now is that CBD is as beneficial and versatile a cannabinoid as THC in addressing many hard to manage conditions such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, epilepsy, antibiotic-resistant infections, alcoholism, PSTD and neurological disorders (O’Shaugnessy’s News Service, 2011). CBD is different however in that it does not have a strong binding affinity for the CB1 and CB2 receptor, thus it works in the body through different direct and indirect pathways. For a more thorough explanation of how and why CBD works in the body, read the article CBD: How it Works by Martin A. Lee. The following is a basic list of how CBD can benefit the human body:

Potent anti-oxidant that is stronger than vitamins C and E. The combination of THC and CBD make an even stronger anti-oxidant (Lee, 2011).
Powerful analgesic that seems to work especially well for traditionally difficult to treat neuropathic pain (Lee, 2011).
Neuroprotective agent that is thought to help prevent Alzhiemer’s and other age related neurodegenerative disorders (Lee, 2011).
Serotonin balancing agent which acts as an antidepressant, and has a positive impact on reducing anxiety, addiction, appetite, sleep, pain perception, nausea and vomiting (Lee, 2011). Serotonin also affects your ability to rest, regenerate and find serenity (Eric Braverman, 2004, p. 138)
Regulates blood pressure.

While there is so much more to learn about CBD and how and why it works in the body, there is enough compelling evidence that leads researchers to believe that whole plant cannabis therapeutics offers great promise for society. One day, CBD will likely become a powerful and widely accepted healing agent used for many different ailments.

Unfortunately, CBD has largely been bred out of much of the cannabis available in the U.S., U.K. and Europe while THC content has been increased because of past emphasis on recreational use. Thanks in part to a group called Project CBD and its supporters, we now know that about one in every 750 samples being tested in California are CBD rich strains (Project CBD, 2012). CBD rich strains are those with 4 percent or higher CBD content. This information makes it possible for the pendulum to swing the other way towards more therapeutic balance or at the very least makes it easier to breed and grow plants that are rich in CBD. As more data becomes available, cannabis breeders/growers around the world are striving to grow marijuana with higher CBD levels to create better medicine.

And most of the people I know who smoke dope it's not for any medical advantage so much as a relief from stress and anxiety and boredom. A good question to ask is why would the more recreational and addictive components of cannabis be bred into the plant and the more medicinally helpful aspects be bred out in Europe, UK and US???? And is that not unnatural and more like closer to being genetically modified????? Is that what the hybrid plants are about???? I have tried marijuana when much younger and it really didn't do much for me because, despite my challenging life, I feel pretty good for the most part most of the time. I look for solutions more than allowing anxiety and stress to paralyze me into helplessness or inaction when action is called for. And I must say that having studied and practicing various techniques of these WMM in particular over the years, and my own techniques, and HeartMath, among other things, have helped tremendously in learning how to cope with this fast paced world. I love the challenges because I love finding solutions and being open to new things. I love following my heart. I find it all very exciting. I am also aware that we are all somewhat time shifted with each other and not everyone has the same interests or are at the same level of understanding. But, there are some things that we do understand when actually following the resonance in our hearts and that applies to everyone whether aware of living a heart centered life or not... :? }

educate yourself Shay ... you have been lied to about Cannabis by the Pharm cos ... please take a minute and listen to this and consider how many people have suffered (and died) needlessly because Cannibis has been demonized and you have been betrayed by your government and quit judging people us use it recreationally - because of the lies that you have been told - no one has ever died or ODed from using pot.... keep in mind that the LTO has advised us to REJECT NOTHING- experience gives you personal KNOWledge ... and we came here to gain and share knowledge of ALL THAT IS - that will assist our fellow man... certainly you can recognize our Creator's concern for our well being, when he created this plant that grows freely everywhere on the Planet to CURE our dis-ease, by the fact that our bodies have receptors for it, and produce it as well.

PS, when you grow your own (from seed) you are not contributing to the mafia, or getting some GMO ... and you will never need to depend on the Medical industry again - that has NEVER CURED anything and that kills more than it heals and needless keeps them dependent upon products they push that only mask the symptoms, which keeps them addicted to their useless, long-term, expensives "treatments" .
