What’s up vape tempers and welcome to another episode of Marijuana Monthly.
It’s that time of month again so let’s break out our best vaporizers set that perfect vape temp and let’s see what is happening in the world of weed this month!
Happy Belated 4-20 everyone!
First off Willie Nelson is launching his own brand of weed. I am not so sure this stuff is going to be safe. I mean the man has probably built up quite a tolerance over the years and I don’t want to end up like this guy ( Show picture of a guy who is fried.)
According to a new poll from CBS News, a majority of Americans support the legalization of recreational marijuana. It is in fact the highest percentage in support since CBS started asking the question in 1979. It showed that 53 percent of Americans are in favor of marijuana legalization.
To date, 23 states have legalized marijuana for medical purposes, and four states, along with the District of Columbia, have legalized recreational use. Yet, the federal government continues to ban the plant, classifying it as one of the “most dangerous” drugs alongside heroin and LSD.
In other news New Jersey governor Chris Christie claims that Marijuana is a “gateway drug.” You know what else is highly addictive and is dangerous to your health, desert. I know the real gateway drug, breast milk. I mean almost every heroin addict I have ever seen started off with breast milk.
North Carolina general assembly strikes down the proposed medical marijuana bill. FYI you also can’t buy alcohol on Sundays there.
A new bill has been introduced to Congress that would prevent the federal government from interfering with state marijuana laws. The Respect State Marijuana Laws Act of 2015 would amend the Controlled Substances Act to create immunity for people and businesses in compliance with state marijuana statutes. This bill resolves the issue entirely by letting states determine their own policies.
Here’s a fun fact: Did you know that many of the big pharmaceutical companies originally sold medical marijuana. Eli Lilly, Parke-Davis (now owned by Pfizer) and Squibb of Bristol-Myers Squibb. In a 1919 medical catalog, these companies listed several cannabis products.
Almost 6% of all manufactured drugs back then contained cannabis in one form or another. They sold cannabis in powder form, tablets, fluid extracts and tinctures.
The cannabis was prescribed for a variety of ailments including epilepsy, female problems, migraines, stomach worms, mental illnesses and addiction.
