Marijuana Drug testing; when should you avoid it?

March 13th, 2012

Marijuana, also known as Cannabis Sativa, is considered to be one of the most used stimulants next to coffee and tobacco since marijuana is also safer than the two. Experts say that marijuana is the easiest detectable drug in a drug test because of the fact that marijuana is not a real drug and so it acts unlike it. As we know, marijuana can stay up to a minimum of days and a maximum of months and so the last thing you need at this point of time is a drug test. Marijuana is the least known substance to be harmful but it also the most likely reason why you will fail your next drug screening.
Marijuana Testing
If passing the test means keeping your job, then you have to be a hundred percent sure that you will pass. Always try to estimate the time marijuana will be expelled from your body from the time you used it. Several factors can contribute to the timeline of marijuana in your system, some of which are your diet and daily exercise. » Read more: Marijuana Drug testing; when should you avoid it?

November 3rd, 2011

Presidential candidate and marijuana supporter Gary Johnson still feels good despite poll numbers.
Gary Johnson Legalize Medical Marijuana
To many Gary Johnson is quickly becoming another Republican also ran, but not if you ask him. Despite being left out of the New Hampshire debate, he feels that he has the momentum. His pro-pot Libertarian views have not been received as well in the GOP as fellow Libertarian Ron Paul. He is currently polling at just one percent, while Paul is around ten. Front runners Bachman and Romney have been consistently around twenty-five percent. Johnson is not deterred. As he put it, “there are 126 candidates on the Republican side of the ticket right now.” While that is a bit of an exaggeration, the numbers will whittle down to Johnson’s benefit. Johnson compares his campaign to his successful campaign for Governor. Less then six months before the Gubernatorial primary, Johnson was polling with only two percent of the vote. Despite this he went on to win not just the primary, but also the election. » Read more: Gary Johnson Still in the Race

Former Candidate for California Governor Targeted by Police

September 27th, 2011

Steve Kubby who ran for Governor of California in 1998 was arrested for possessing medical marijuana. In jail, he nearly died from lack of access to the drug.

Steve Kubby

In the 1960, Steve Kubby was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called pheochromocytoma. This disease is normally terminal and his doctor Vincent DeQuattro was amazed to find him still alive in 1996, not to mention in good enough condition to run for the Governor’s office. Kubby ran and lost as the Libertarian Party candidate for Governor of California. Following his loss, he went on to craft what would eventually become Proposition 215 that legalized medical marijuana in the state. In 1999, however, he was raided by police. When he was put in prison, he was denied access to medical marijuana. Even this short break from his medication caused a disease he had lived with for forty years to almost kill him.

Legalize Canadian Marijuana
The drug war has long made a mockery of the American Justice System.  In Canada however, the Justice System is making a mockery of the War on Drugs.  Canada has had a system of medical marijuana in place for several years. On April 12 of 2011, Judge Donald Taliano of Ontario heard the case of R. v. Mernagh.  Matt Mernagh is a Canadian medical marijuana patient who has been treating his fibromyalgia and seizures for years.  Unfortunately he was unable to find a doctor who was willing to sign the paperwork to allow him to legally use marijuana.  The police then raided Matt’s house and seized all the plants he was growing for his own use and charged him for growing without a license.
