Marijuana Nation : National Geographic (2/5)

361 ratings | 253945 views
http://www.nirvana-shop.com/ POT HEAD NATION Reporting from secret farms and not-so-secret grow houses of marijuana cultivators, where marijuana is not just a drug but a way of life. Marijuana is the most widely used illicit drug on the planet. Intertwined with culture, economics, law enforcement and perhaps medical miracles, this plant holds both peril and promise. * Marijuana use can be traced as far back as the Neolithic era (8,000-5,000 BC), where charred remains of cannabis seeds have been unearthed in ancient braziers of present day Romania. * Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were known to grow Cannabis on their plantations in the 1700s, most likely for the production of hemp. * THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the principal psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. The potency of THC in marijuana determines the strength of the substance. * THC is stored in fatty tissues in the body, including the brain. * The most potent form of marijuana is called sinsimilla, and is produced by preventing the female plant from being pollinated. This keeps the plant seedless to produce a high resin content, allowing for a higher content of THC. * Medicinal marijuana is currently legal in 12 states: California, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Mexico, Nevada, Montana, Colorado, Maine, Oregon, Alaska, Hawaii and Washington State. However, According to federal law, marijuana use is illegal regardless of whether it's used medicinally. * Marijuana is used medicinally to fight chronic pain, spasticity from multiple sclerosis, nausea and vomiting in HIV patients, as well as the nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy. * According to the Department of Justice, the principle source of foreign-produced marijuana in the U.S. is from Mexico. However, production appears also to be on the rise in Canada and domestically in the U.S. * According to the FBI, 800,000 people were arrested on marijuana charges in 2006 in the United States. Nearly 90% of these arrests were for marijuana possession. * A 2006 survey reported that marijuana usage among males was twice as high than among females of the same age groups. * According to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug in America.

and i hate the whole arguement about cannabis being related to schizophrenia, when cannabis only brings it on if you have a genetic predisposition for schizophrenia.

No, no, no...He said "potent"! "30 to 50% more potent" That's complete bullshit! (my first cigarette early in the morning is 100% more potent, than the last, late at night! And there is no such thing as "Skunk" in my tabacco!).

I know, its disillusioning and just sad.
rsohlich1 (6 years ago)
yep and COCAINE is schedule 2....haha. These laws are really off and pot is fine to use. Painkillers are killing masses, and also alcohol, yet they are legal. Pot kills no one. Seems to me pot is about life and booze and chemicals are leaning to darkness and deceit.

the'll hurt your teeth as in the feeling of drinking coffee or something, then dumping ice water in your mouth and swishing. the smoke itself is no more damaging, actually less damaging 'cause you might only have to smoke a 1/3 - 1/2 gram to get baked as opposed to 1.
Preben Hundven (6 years ago)
I've never heard of strains like that... What'd happen if you made concentrates from it? You could probably not even smell on it without getting high... But why do you say that strains with THC levels above 25-28 % will hurt your teeth? Makes no sense, in my opinion... The smoke itself does hurt your whole mouth, that's why smokers are estimated to lose about two teeth every ten years.
Ready2Run1 (6 years ago)
there are strains that produce thc levels that high but it is extraordinarily rare to find them. the plant's yields are low and to get access to genetics the cost is ridiculous: $10,000 to $12,000 for ten seeds.bc storm trooper is a good example: slightly lower thc levels than some at around 45%-46% but yields high. you'r right about the bullshit he spun about skunk that strong, anything above 25-28% will hurt your teeth while smoking to put things in perspective. skunk is usually 15% or less

Im 16 years old and a marijuana user. I dont understand why not legalize weed like they did back with alcohal which decreased crime rate -.- I want weed legalized for fuck sake because I plan to go into the military but this means I will not be able to use weed.
Arariel3 (6 years ago)
exactly. I agree that this is what the guy said.
cgrfc1 (6 years ago)
Marijuana should be legal that's a fact if u smoke it all day everyday after a while it's obviousely going to have an effect on you if you limit the use like alcohol on weekends for example it's harmless
achie712 (6 years ago)

Fadhli Erlanda (6 years ago)
so marijuana was used for industrial purpose, including for making papers? oh maybe it is better to make papers from marijuana that will be more environmentally friendly rather than chopping trees. so we still have more trees that provide oxygen for the planet and nests for animals

Only in America would substances that kill 450,000 people in the US every year (Tobacco and Alcohol) be legal and other medical substances, that to this day, have not caused a single overdose (Marijuana), be illegal. I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

ScuderiaBull (7 years ago)
@xMalicious , I believe he meant 30-50% higher THC level THAN OTHER plants (not 30-50% of THC in a plant... that would be ridiculous)
Preben Hundven (7 years ago)
50 % SKUNK WEED?!?!?! Give me some? No but seriously, there's no marijuana with THC levels as high as 50 %, come on! Loving the documentary, but jeez.

None of those side effects of cannabis are proven, cannabis can also help cure psychosis, its all how you use it, and it should be compared next to all pharm drugs.

@NormanCameron4U fuck Ronald Reagan...
Stubbledmouse (7 years ago)
it should be legalized in all countries even in the bible there is data of this plant !!!!
Dan Satler (7 years ago)
@mattmar619 Dude Skunk is sativa dominant and known for its soaring high. Just because they use it in alot of indicas doenst change the fact that almost all varieties of it are sativa dominant. Thats the only thing I argued with 01bletsch about so calm down. mmj rec or not any stoner should know that
Dan Satler (7 years ago)
@mattmar619 not over 20 comments talking shit im responding to peoples replys to me, and I buy bud from the streets also most of my friends sell- but they cant compete with my top shelf 8ths delivered 4 grams for 50 bucks of the most exotic strains that can be grown. And all the choices I have.

@whoopla1095 yes Ron Paul fucking rocks!!! Most states would make weed legal if they knew they had the power to do so- so we need more candidates like ron paul speaking the truth
Dan Satler (7 years ago)
@01bletsch dont forget sweet island skunk also you moron
Dan Satler (7 years ago)
@DansFishChannel widdow skunk, grape skunk, critical mass skunk,
Dan Satler (7 years ago)
@01bletsch Shkunk is never usually sativa dom??? look up the original 3 skunks. Skunk#1, skunk#2, and super skunk are all sativa dom. Im a mmj cardholder and im trying more strains per week than most people do in months. I never see skunk strains on the indica side of the menu unless its a skunk hybrid that is not skunk dominent, so instead of telling people to go around copying and pasting shit for you just look it up yourself lol. don forget shiva skunk, lemon skunk,skunk haze
Dan Satler (7 years ago)
@whoopla1095 best example i could give you is the "war on drugs" which was nixon and his child. Bold face lying resulting in all sorts of death and hardship and robbing us of the funding to do it.
Dan Satler (7 years ago)
@01bletsch No man the afghani used in skunk is for bud structure, yeild, and early flowering and usually nothing else. The effects, smell and taste all come from the acapulco gold and the columbian gold strains which are basically hazes. so shut your mouth, its usually sativa dominent too with only 25% indica
Notmyrealname (7 years ago)
@DansFishChannel Got any examples? I take it your a ron paul fan cuz you think he wants to legalize weed? Well he doesnt. He said the states can legalize it if they want to. If your state doesn't well your fucked.
Dan Satler (7 years ago)
@01bletsch sorry man. I live in san diego and our dispensaries rarely get seeds from companies. Most of the shit is indica dom too so we get super shiested on the rare sativas. Yes I do feel dumb
Dan Satler (7 years ago)
@whoopla1095 terrible comment. Reagan could never be prez now and days. We have better liars like obama and Romney nobody would fall for the HUGE lies reagan got away with in this day and age
Dan Satler (7 years ago)
@hurbangrower skunk is not kush. Its a sativa and it is nothing like kush
hurbangrower (7 years ago)
Skunk. That's such an old skool name its funny to hear those morons saying it. Are they talking about Kush? All the medical herb from the US is considered to be the best in the world.

From where does a corporation derive it's right to use theft, coercion, defamation, fines and imprisonment to enforce it's own administrative rules and regulations against another, on private property, not bound by oath to uphold them?

CamRxn Mhore (7 years ago)
Ronald Reagan really believed that marijuana was the most dangerous drug because more people were arrested for it than for other drugs? In Russia, it was illegal to own Beatles' records and Bibles. No-one has ever died from using any of those things. Unlike Tobacco, which kills more people than anyone. meanwhile the prison-industrial-complex, their lobby, the pharmacuetical industry, their lobby, the Tobacco industry and the politicians they pay profit. If there is a Hell RonaldReagan is there.

I'm so sick of the U.S and their drug war that include's this MIRACLE plant put here by God,not man!This has affected so many of us,even up here in Canada because our leader's think this plant is a problem.The problem isn't pot,it's the new drug of choice which is made by our government's,prescription drug's and their killing to many people,it's unreal and they should know,their the one's that make these drug's.They need to listen to the people who use this drug for the good and

@obrad79 I live in the Netherlands and I do have to say that I have seen some increasing schizofrenic symptoms in people that are heavy users of marijuana. However I believe that these things were always present in these people and the marijuana only catalyzed it, as it does with most emotions. I'm a heavy user as well by the way...
john doe (7 years ago)
@obrad79 Do some research, you will find the truth. By the way i'm pro cannabis all the way!
57worldwide (7 years ago)
@obrad79 Nah bro. Cannabis doesn't cause schizophrenia, but a person may have a mild form of mental illness, and cannabis use can cause this to worsen. It's psychoactive. It's the only negative to cannabis I know of.
