10 Things You Didn’t Know About Marijuana

Marijuana has been legalized in two states and approved for medical use in a whole bunch of others, the drug has become a much more typical topic of conversation. Here are 10 things to talk about.

Dude. Since recreational marijuana has been legalized in some states and approved for medical use in a whole bunch of others, the drug has become a much more typical topic of conversation.

Here are 10 not so common facts about cannabis you can use to dazzle your friends at your next gathering.

Number 10. It hails from a celebrity family. Marijuana — or, cannabis if you’re so inclined — and beer-making hops come from the same plant family. And yes, people have experimented with making beer out of marijuana. Many say the best route is to follow a dark ale recipe.

Number 9. Pot has been to space. Last year a weather balloon hauled 95 seeds, a clone plant, and a joint 19 miles up into the air. As far as real space, the verdict is still out. Rumors that NASA researchers threw a couple of weed seeds into zero gravity growing chambers have been alluded to by one of the agency’s former agricultural team members.

Number 8. Cannabis is legit. There are by some estimates 2000 slang terms for marijuana — weed, mary jane, pot, ganja, and, according to purists, marijuana itself is an unofficial and pejorative street lingo. Prior to it being vilified in the 20th century, it was referred to as cannabis.

Number 7. Marijuana accounts for many arrests despite an increasingly liberal public policy. According to the FBI, legalization has done little to decrease the pot-related arrest rate of 1 every 42 seconds as of 2012.

Number 6. Medical marijuana has been around since at least 2737 BC when its use was first recorded by Chinese Emperor Shen Nung. He enlisted its help in treating gout and managing rheumatism pains.

Number 5. Canada was the first modern country to offer medical marijuana. They began dispensing it in 2003.

Number 4. Up until 1942, the US dispensed it as well. Prescribing pot to relieve nausea, rheumatism, and labor pains began around 1850. Producers even had ads printed boasting the cost effectiveness and purity of their locally produced goods.

Number 3. To overdose would take a superhuman ability. It’s estimated that to pose a deadly threat to one’s health 1500 pounds of weed would have to be consumed in a 15-minute period.

Number 2. Presidents sometimes inhale. On the issue George W. Bush said, “I wouldn’t answer the marijuana questions. You know why? Because I don’t want some little kid doing what I tried.” President Obama kept his response more succinct, saying about inhaling, “That was the point.”

Number 1. They sell marijuana smoothies in India. The drink is a simple yogurt and cannabis blend. Reportedly, it tastes horrible, but considering the dancing that follows, it seems to go down easily.

Swaziland: Gold Mine of Marijuana (Part 1/2)

Check out more episodes of Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia here: http://bit.ly/1p4lfu9

Swaziland is a landlocked country sandwiched between South Africa and Mozambique. Despite Swaziland’s small size, it boasts more hectares of land dedicated to growing Cannabis than all of India. It is also home to Swazi Gold, the legendary sativa strain.

Hamilton Morris travels to Swaziland hoping to chemically analyze the cannabinoids present in some of the local strains. Instead, he finds a country steeped in political corruption and economic turmoil. Cannabis is viewed by many growers, users, and politicians as a drug that will cause insanity, but it may be Swaziland’s only hope for economic stability.

Drivers stoned on marijuana test their driving skills

If you watched this video and liked Addy, you can watch outtakes of her here: http://kiro.tv/WFNEMZ

CNN may have just posted their best piece of investigative journalism in years. In the following video, three drivers of varying ages got incredibly high on marijuana and test-drove cars around a course. A driving-ed instructor accompanied them to avert any chance of an accident, and police watched from the sidelines to spot any visible ‘signs’ of inebriation in their movements.

The volunteers — a young daily smoker, adult weekend smoker and elder infrequent smoker — proceeded to test escalating levels of stupor against the new baseline ‘legal limits’ in Colorado and Washington state. They had to reach excesses of 5 times the legal limit before their ability to drive became impaired. In most cases, the danger they presented was driving too slowly or with frequent hesitations.

Although hardly scientific, this test does offer some insight into a specter which has haunted us for years: marijuana legalization. Last November, the country watched tame and good-natured celebrations sweep Colorado and Washington after their pro-marijuana ballot passed. The sudden and complete lack of tension between public smokers and police was wonderful to see; it was like two opposing armies finally laying arms to rest. It was as if a part of America had leapt into a progressive future, giving the rest of us a glimpse into what might be. Could anyone deny that this was a microcosm of the future most have been waiting for?

Despite resounding state level calls to end to the war on drugs, the DEA and federal government still loom overhead with murky legal gray zones. When asked by Barbara Walters what his current stance on the issue was, Obama said he would not make it a priority to go after recreational users in states that have passed legalization initiatives. This evasive, political response is to be expected: we aren’t permitting drugs, but we won’t fight the states on the issue.

Perhaps it would be too much to ask for the president to fully legalize marijuana and end an obscene prohibition that imprisons millions of Americans. But if the political PR can be ignored, it is undoubtedly the right thing to do. For now, maybe the best tactic is to keep harassing citizens federally, so they demand protection from their states and take the issue off Obama’s plate.

So back to our drivers, and the issue many mothers are now concerned about: children having a new intoxicant to afflict their driving skills. How did the ‘impaired’ volunteers actually do? Well at a certain point, the substance had an undeniable effect on their ability to navigate a vehicle sensibly. But they all maintained surprising control, even at incredibly excessive levels of marijuana consumption. Moreover, unlike drunk drivers, they were very much aware of their state and agreed they were not on top of their game. Without over-indulging, it seems people’s critical thinking can be trusted more with a few hits than a couple of drinks.

When it comes to marijuana in America, there’s still a long road ahead to change laws, perceptions and behavior. But it’s progress worth making, as long as it gets us away from misinformed stereotypes like this.
