We know that the United States Constitution is a document with built-in provision for change. That’s what all of these amendments are for in the first place. Rarely, though, has this been on display as rapidly as during the 14-year swing between the passage of Prohibition in 1919 and its repeal in 1933. The text of the Twenty-first Amendment is reads (in part):
Section 1. The eighteenth article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.
With it, our national experiment in banning liquor, beer, and wine was over. Though individual states were still welcome to make whatever laws they wished regarding booze, the United States itself would not get involved. Prohibition was considered a failure, and over time various state laws too began to change in a more freeing direction.
The idea of Prohibition was an interesting one which had noble goals. Unfortunately, however, it…

Given the amount of damage that marijuana is perpetrating on NJ communities and the relatively recent influx of adolescents into addictions treatment as a result of marijuana use, the lax attitude many parents and the general community at large has toward marijuana continues to surprise me.
Marijuana is a drug, it’s dangerous and if your teen is using then it is reasonable to be concerned and take action.
The Office of National Drug Control Policy put out a reallygreat pamphletexposing many common myths about marijuana use. No. There are no pop culture icons or really cool conspiracy theories referenced ….just science and solid research.
The XLVIII Superbowl showdown is taking place Sunday, February 2nd at the Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey but many are left wondering what to call the event. Should they call it the smoke bowl, the weed bowl, salad bowl, 420 bowl? Ultimately it doesn’t really matter as smokers and potheads everywhere (and by everywhere we mean Colorado and Washington) are commemorating the event via marijuana usage along with the usual excessive alcohol consumption and trans fats overdosing.
In order to know how many people plan on doing this we started a poll! Fill out our quick survey below and tell us how you will celebrate the upcoming Superbowl!
In another inch forward for Barack Obama’s stance on marijuana, the U.S. president revealed in a new interview that he finds the drug no more dangerous than alcohol.
“As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol,” Obama told The New Yorker’s David Remnick.
However, Obama clarified his comments, discussing both the societal impact of marijuana arrests, as well as the legal implications for comparing various drugs and legalizations.
“If marijuana is fully legalized and at some point folks say, ‘Well, we can come up with a negotiated dose of cocaine that we can show is not any more harmful than vodka,’ are we open to…

But the findings shouldn’t send patients rushing to buy pot: the levels used in the research appear to be too high to obtain through smoking. And there’s no sign yet that the approach works in laboratory animals, let alone people.
Still, the finding does suggest that more than one compound in marijuana might boost cancer treatment, said study author Sean McAllister, an associate scientist at California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute in San Francisco. “Combination therapies might be more appropriate,” McAllister said.
Researchers have long studied the compounds in marijuana known as cannabinoids, which are thought to hold possible health benefits. One, known as THC, is well known for its role in making people high when they smoke or eat pot. Researchers have been testing it as a treatment for the brain tumors known as glioblastomas.
In the new study, researchers tested THC and cannabidiol, another compound from marijuana, on…

In both states (beginning in CO after Dec. 31st, 2013) it is legal for anyone — 21 and over, to purchase weed without worry or a MMJ card.
Although there continue to be many people that are still vehemently against any so-called “drug” use — let alone the prospect of legalization, there are growing numbers of cannabis supporters speaking up and when it comes to America’s voters, they are striking a blunt blow to the naysayers.
There is much speculation as to which State will be next to openly light-up, but all indications show the voters of California and New York are not far from rolling-up a fat one while they watch Colorado prepare to toke…
