Disney World in central Florida has long banned items such as weapons, skateboards, drones and alcoholic beverages. With the legalization of medical marijuana in Florida last year, Disney has taken action to clear a cloud of confusion surrounding the drug — by banning it at the premises. “Although some states have legalized marijuana for medicinal or recreational use, marijuana remains illegal under federal law,” a Disney spokesperson told WESH-TV. “We are revising our rules to clarify that marijuana is not permitted on our property.” Matt Morgan, one of the attorneys who helped pass the amendment on election day, understands why Disney created the policy, but doesn’t want a person being disciplined for something that is now legal in the Sunshine State. To the extent that they’d go through someone’s personal belongings to search for that, I think that’s when the public might start having an issue with it,” Morgan said to the station. “All businesses are going to have to adapt and amend with society as this issue plays out.”
Scientists believe that our gastrointestinal tract is essentially a second brain. It's deeply linked to the brain in your head by a large network of neurons, and they both pass a flood of chemicals and hormones back and forth constantly. The gut is filled with just as many complex nerves as the spinal cord, and can operate independently from our central nervous system. Researchers from the University of Connecticut shed a little more light on the remarkableness of the gastrointestinal tract when their recent study discovered that the gut has receptors that react to hot chili pepper ingestion by creating a compound called anadamide. This chemical works to regulate the gut immune system and bring it into balance, and is also related to the cannabinoids found in marijuana. The brain similarly has anadamide receptors, and these are what get activated and make you feel high when marijuana is used. This allows you to imagine ways the immune system and the brain might talk to each other. They share a common language,” said study author Pramod Srivastava, M.D., Ph.D., professor of immunology and medicine at UConn School of Medicine. Anadamide is that link and the researchers also found that it, when created, works to make more anandamide and spurs another receptor to make macrophages, which are immune cells that tamp down inflammation. Eating hot peppers and using marijuana could effectively help those with gastrointestinal inflammation like colitis, Crohn’s disease, and even diabetes. So, we suggest perhaps ordering up some jalapeño poppers next time you take a toke, and eschewing the pizza. #Cannabis #Marijuana #CannaFamily #Reefer #ReeferClub #ReeferSociety #WeShouldSmoke #WeedLikeToSmoke #IWillMarryMary #InstaWeed #Weedstagram #420Daily #CannabisHeals #CannaCulture #CannabisCommunity #Marijuanamovement #WeedSociety #Dank #Dabs #Dabaholic #CBD #710 #420

With passage of the Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (“MCRSA”) in 2015, California took a huge step towards comprehensively regulating its medical cannabis industry after more than 20 years of little to no such state government oversight under Proposition 215. Under the MCRSA, California medical cannabis businesses can expect a bevy of regulations spanning packaging and labeling requirements, mandatory quality assurance testing, advertising, seed to sale tracking, environmental impact restrictions, plant canopy and potency limitations, and financing and ownership restrictions. The same level of regulation and government oversight can also be expected under the Control, Regulate, and Tax Adult Use of Cannabis Act (“AUMA”), California’s legalization of recreational marijuana initiative that passed in 2016. Other states that legalized and regulated both medical and recreational cannabis have taken a variety of approaches to handling these two somewhat different industries, ranging from dual regulation and licensing to essentially snuffing out medical cannabis by forcing patients to visit recreational stores. California is now confronting how it will deal with its parallel licensing and regulatory systems for medical and adult use cannabis. Though the AUMA and MCRSA are similar, there are distinct differences between them that will impact how licenses are obtained and how businesses are run and operated. Among other things, the AUMA and MRCSA differ on licensing timelines; priority licensing; mandatory distributorships; license categories and types; local approval prior to licensure by the state; ownership restrictions; residency requirements; and traceability systems. In addition, the MCRSA limits vertical integration of licensees, generally allowing cannabis licensees to hold licenses in no more than two separate categories and only in certain combinations while the AUMA has no such vertical integration restrictions. #Cannabis #Marijuana #CannaFamily #Reefer #ReeferClub #ReeferSociety #Dank #WeedSociety #WeShouldSmoke #WeedLikeToSmoke #IWillMarryMary #InstaWeed #Weedstagram #420Daily #710 #420 #420LifeStyle #CannabisHeals
Although the state of California has given adults the green light to smoke weed recreationally and approved a limited amount of home grow, Angelenos who rent their residence may still have one big hurdle to jump: landlords. Under Proposition 64 and reigning landlord-tenant policy, rental leases can ban smoking on the premises, tobacco or otherwise. Even if the contract doesn’t explicitly address marijuana, there are a number of other pre-fabricated stipulations — including a “no illegal drug” policy, a nuisance clause and a rule banning tenants from violating state or federal law — that can be invoked to put the kibosh on your cannabis, experts say. Even Angelenos with a therapeutic need for weed may have few rights to it, as medical marijuana users are not a protected class, attorney Eric Shevin, general counsel for cannabis private equity investment firm 7th Point LLC, said in an email. This is true even under the Americans With Disabilities Act due to the current federal scheduling, which denies any and all medical use,” he said. “The only classes of people who cannot be discriminated against are those in protected classes: race, gender, age, sexual orientation and alienage.” More often than not, landlords aren’t looking to interfere with what you do in the privacy of your own home. But in a multifamily dwelling with nearby neighbors, smoking weed can lead to complaints, said Debra Carlton, senior vice president of public affairs at the California Apartment Association. Even before recreational pot was legalized last year, issues began to arise with the proliferation of medical marijuana prescriptions. “Quite frankly, cards are not that hard to get,” said Carlton. “So it became still a problem and a nuisance for neighbors, who complained to the landlord.” The issue of smoking in multi-unit homes began years ago with cigarettes, she added, forcing landlords to serve as the referee between tenants and address concerned residents with asthma or children who were inhaling the smoke. Lease agreements began including clauses that prohibited smoking, and now, many shared spaces have simply banned the practice on the premises entirely, Carlton said.
Weed’s got a dirty little secret: It holds the power to transform our sex lives. Our ancient ancestors believed it (hello, tantric sex rituals), researchers in the 70s and 80s tried to prove it, and today, savvy "potrepreneurs" are attempting to capitalize on it. Cannabis-laced lube is only the beginning. What can pot do in bed? With the right strain and dosage, it can slooow down time, making every touch feel more intense, every kiss more passionate. For some people with sexual dysfunctions, it can make the unreachable reachable. And as with medical marijuana, those who stand to benefit extend beyond, say, whoever’s signing up for that new dating app for pot lovers. As states move to legalize marijuana, the drug is poised to enter the bedroom in weird and wonderful ways—potentially changing the way we mate forever. We spoke with experts and advocates about the little-understood aphrodisiac’s potential between the sheets. Here’s what we learned. Is pot really a love drug? Many, many years before “potheads” and “munchies” were a thing, pleasure-seekers in ancient India used cannabis (known as “bhang”) in tantric sex. Nineteenth-century Persian prostitutes were also well-known users of ganja, and in 1930s Russia, young brides were advised to partake on their wedding night as a way to make having sex for the first time more pleasurable. But it wasn’t until the 1970s and 80s when pot was making a comeback into American culture that U.S. researchers James Halikas, Ronald Weller, and others conducted multiple studies that seemingly proved marijuana’s aphrodisiac effects. Participants in these studies reported enhanced touch, heightened intimacy, stronger orgasms, and better sex in general. Since then, the research has gone flaccid. “Very little has been done on this topic since the 1980s,” said Mitch Earleywine, a professor of psychology at the State University of New York at Albany who has researched marijuana for years. “There's no funding for it, and everybody tends to treat it as fact.” As more states legalize the drug, pot researchers and advocates hope funding will follow. What’s the science behind it?
To curb drug use, these police officers have turned to what they know best: doughnuts. Iowa State University and Ames police departments launched a campaign to encourage students not to smoke weed by giving out free glazed doughnuts. The police departments busted out a “Donutmobile” emblazoned with “Donut Disrespect” on the hood Thursday at the campus in Ames, Iowa. “Donutmobile will be out soon. Donut come baked (or fried),” Ames Police Department wrote on Twitter. Using hashtags such as “ #GlazeItDontBlazeIt,” the department also got the word out on social media. In a viral video on Twitter, the officers promise donuts to anyone who “donut disrespect, donut discriminate, donut harass and donut hate.” “Respect each other, and donut make bad decisions and we will give you free donuts,” Iowa State University police officer Anthony Greiter said. Funniest article I've come across all year. Would you pass up a Tasty #Joint of some really good #Kush or your favorite Hybrid for a glazed doughnut? #Marijuana #CannaFamily #Reefer #ReeferClub #ReeferSociety #Dank #WeedSociety #WeShouldSmoke #WeedLikeToSmoke #IWillMarryMary #Cannabis #CBD #CannabisHeals #420Daily #InstaWeed #Weedstagram
The 19-year-old muggle with the same name as The Boy Who Lived was stopped on his moped on January 19 when a police officer noticed a strong smell of cannabis. He was searched and Potter, of York, was found with three wraps of cannabis and £70 in cash on him. He pleaded guilty to possessing a class B drug with intent to supply at York Magistrates Court yesterday. His solicitor Jane Maloney said he had not gained financially from dealing cannabis but had instead been buying the drug for himself, along with extra that he would pass on to his friends at York College only charging them the same amount he had paid. #Marijuana #Cannabis #CannabisCommunity #cannabisculture #marijuanamovement #Ganja #Reefer #WeShouldSmoke #InstaWeed #weedstagram #weedsociety #WeedLikeToSmoke #calibud #ReeferSociety #ReeferClub #WeShouldSmoke #CannaFamily #CannabisHeals #Californian #California
What’s happening in the California cannabis scene? And why should we care in Oregon? There are literal tons of cannabis-related activities in our neighboring state of California, and Oregonians should care because California is both influential and flipping enormous. California is the most populated US state. And with a GDP exceeding $2.4 trillion, the Golden State has the sixth largest economy in the world—greater than the entire country of France! As much as bitter Oregonians might hate to admit it, California is a global trendsetter in many ways, including culture, politics, technology, real estate, methods of highlighting your hair—and cannabis. If you’re interested in cannabis, you should keep an eye on what happens in California. California is the most populated US state.

Oxford University will begin a 10-million-pound research project into the medical benefits of marijuana, the prestigious institution said on Thursday. The project is a partnership between the university and private equity firm Kingsley Capital Partners, who are investing the funds in an effort to create a global centre of excellence in cannabinoid research. Neil Mahapatra, the Indian-origin managing partner at the firm, said the strategic partnership with Oxford University would support the development of "innovative new therapies to help millions of people around the world". "Medical cannabis and cannabinoid medicine is already helping patients with some of the most distressing conditions across the world. However, research into the specific pathways and mechanisms that create this benefit is limited and long overdue," he was quoted as saying by the Financial Times. Kingsley Capital Partners claims to be the only Europe-based company to make a concerted effort in the field and has also set up Forma Holdings in the US to work on medical marijuana in the region. The UK study will source cannabis from Europe to examine the role of cannabis medicines in treating pain, cancer and inflammatory diseases. It follows calls from MPs in Britain for legalisation of cannabis on medical grounds. #Marijuana #Cannabis #marijuanamovement #CannabisCommunity #cannabisculture #ReeferSociety #ReeferClub #CannaFamily #CannabisHeals #WeedLikeToSmoke #WeShouldSmoke #weedsociety #weedstagram #InstaWeed
Distillates are made through a process called molecular distillation. Commonly used to make acetone, gas or diesel fuel from petroleum, molecular distillation is just starting to emerge as a cannabinoid extraction method. Distilling hash requires taking winterized concentrates — butane or Co2 hash oil refined with alcohol or ethanol and then chilled at extreme temperatures — and then distilling them to concentrate the THC further. Think of it like distilling wine into brandy: You’re taking an extracted substance and refining it even further for higher purity. Commercial extractors use a machine called a “wiped film evaporator,” which takes advantage of the different boiling points in cannabinoids to thermally separate them. First, the wiped film evaporator separates the cannabinoids from the terpenes by boiling the concentrate at a high pressure but at a relatively low temperature. The process is repeated to remove any impurities, such as leftover solvents or lipids, in the concentrate. The result: a clear, odorless concentrate virtually free of solvents. #Marijuana #Cannabis #CannabisCommunity #cannabisculture #marijuanamovement #Ganja #Reefer #ReeferSociety #ReeferClub #CannaFamily #CannabisHeals #WeedLikeToSmoke #WeShouldSmoke
Gov. Jerry Brown has made his wishes clear: He wants the conflicts between California's medical and recreational cannabis laws resolved by the end of the year. On Tuesday night his office published a 92-page document offering up recommendations for how to settle key differences in laws regulating both segments of the industry, with the governor choosing sides on everything from how many licenses marijuana business owners can hold to how weed should be distributed statewide. #California #Californian #DontTreadOnMe #Cannabis #Marijuana #GrowYourOwn #marijuanamovement #CannabisCommunity #cannabisculture #ReeferSociety #ReeferClub #CannaFamily #CannabisHeals #WeedLikeToSmoke #WeShouldSmoke #iwillmarrymary
Remember when cannabis had a not-so-healthy image? (Think red eyes and munchies.) Well, those days are fading fast, as the potent plant’s healing powers have started to attract some serious interest from wellness brands in all categories—food, beverage, beauty, and beyond. You could say that this 2017 wellness trend is lit—and it’s clear why: Although much more research still needs to be done on the health effects of marijuana use, several studies have indicated that extracts from the plant, in particular cannabidiol or CBD, could be a legit remedy for mood disorders, inflammation, chronic pain, and more modern ills. (Here’s a primer on how its compounds help people heal by working with the body’s endocannabinoid system.) #CannabisCommunity #cannabisculture #marijuanamovement #Ganja #Reefer #ReeferSociety #ReeferClub #CannaFamily #CannabisHeals #Marijuana #Cannabis #GrowYourOwn
