Being uncomfortably high is enough to turn even the most seasoned cannabis consumer off the stuff for years, if not for life. Well, my friends, you probably have a simple solution stocked in your kitchen that can subdue paranoia and help you breathe a sigh of relief back into a calm pool of stress-free euphoria..... https://www.leafly.com/news/cannabis-101/this-everyday-household-item-could-counteract-your-cannabis-induc
  2. 5 Ways Cannabis Helps Keep The Peace Suck it, Jeff Sessions. November 18, 2017 Mark Miller Attorney General Jeff Sessions believes that legalizing pot increases crime and violence. The evidence proves that he’s wrong. Here are five ways cannabis helps keep the peace. 1. Dispensaries Keeping the crime rate down in America’s second-largest city is no mean feat; however, that’s exactly what medical pot dispensaries have accomplished in Los Angeles. After a 2013 ballot measure closed hundreds of pot shops, the crime rate in neighborhoods that were deprived of their dispensaries actually increased: Larceny, property crimes and auto break-ins all went up after the dispensaries went down. 2. Border Crime A report from the Economic Journal in June 2017 found significant decreases in both theft and violent crime in states sharing a border with Mexico...... https://hightimes.com/culture/5-ways-cannabis-helps-keep-peace/

  10. How To Filter Out Fake News On Youth And Marijuana Are recent headlines making you confused? Do you feel bombarded every day with conflicting information? You need a course on how to filter out fake news. November 17, 2017 By Chris Roberts In our current social and political climate, we need to know how to filter out fake news. But before we get into that, below is one of our very favorite things in the whole world: A cop tweet. See here—it’s as clear as day. According to the Salt Lake City Metro Narcotics task force, Colorado’s children and teens started smoking more weed after the state’s adult voters legalized marijuana. Look at the charts. It’s in the data! Forget for a second that the chart didn’t actually say anything of the kind and had nothing to do with youth use at all. Surely it stands to reason: More legal marijuana means more kids using it. Let’s take a look at other states, where....... https://hightimes.com/news/filter-fake-news-youth-marijuana/

Couple Handcuffed, Placed In Police Cruiser For Hours After Insurance Agent Mistakes Hibiscus Plants For Marijuana November 16, 2017 6:31 PMBy Paul Martino BUFFALO TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A Buffalo Township couple says they were handcuffed and placed in a police cruiser for hours while police searched their property after an insurance agent mistook the couple’s hibiscus plant for marijuana. The incident started back in September when a large tree from neighboring property fell onto the side of Edward and Audrey Cramer’s home, causing damage to the house and an antique garden tractor. (Photo Credit: KDKA) A press release alleges that when the Cramers’ insurance agent, Jonathan Yeamans, arrived at the home to assess the damage, Yeamans took photos of flowering hibiscus plants in their backyard and sent the photos to police, believing the plant was marijuana.

  13. Marijuana Pro-Tips: 5 Ways To Figure Out THC Dosage With Cannabutter A good recipe starts with correct dosing. By: Jessie Moore Nov 17, 2017 Marijuana edibles can be a little like Forrest Gump and his box of chocolates: you never know what you’re gonna get. On the one hand, this cannaball might stone you out of your gourd; on the other hand, this pot brownie might have you scratching your head and wondering “is it working?” Making cannabutter is easy; figuring out the proper dosage, however, can prove tricky in a home kitchen. Even with the same amount of ounces of weed used per batch, there are many variables which can affect the potency, including the amount of heat you apply, the strain of weed, and individual tolerance. However, I’d like to offer some handy anecdotal tips that I’ve picked up along my cannabaking adventures. While wouldn’t say that I get it right 100 percent of the time, following these tips and tricks has made my dosage far more reliable...... https://thefreshtoast.com/food/5-tips-for-figuring-out-thc-dosage-with-cannabutter/
