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.
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!).
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
@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
@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.
@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
@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
@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.
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?
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.
like this if you just have a pure unconditional passionate love for marijuana and always will always respect it and treat it right regardless of the status quo or the mass view on this gorgeous amazing sublime plant
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
weed is not a drug, its a plant..just like if u pick some mint, boil it and drink it..except weed u smoke...still entering ur body same way.....they just made it illegal to make money....so those are the people who on drugs
@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...
@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.
