Best MJ of 2014!

Over the weekend, lots of folks celebrated 4/20 at the 2014 High Times Denver Cannabis Cup. This was an exciting year for Denver and for High Times – it’s the first year High Times had the opportunity to host their event in a state where recreational marijuana use is actually legal. They go balls to the wall in Amsterdam. Now they get to do it in Denver too!

Toke of the Town:

According to the Daily Chronic, the Marijuana Policy Project’s campaign in Texas includes three new bill proposals. The MPP hasn’t been shy about their intentions, obviously, but the Daily Chronic article posted this week indulges a little more detail about their plans. The new bill proposals cover three goals – first, the decriminalization of marijuana; next, allowing it to be used for medical purposes; and eventually, legalizing it with regulations similar to alcohol.

Step by step.

So, the details – many thanks to the Daily Chronic for posting!

First up, marijuana decriminalization. The proposed Civil Penalty Bill will reduce penalties for possession of marijuana in amounts of one ounce or less.


 
Marijuana Addiction – Real or a Myth?

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), marijuana can be “addictive, harmful, and a gateway drug.”

A corresponding study was published in June, and has been a popular topic of conversation in light of legalization efforts across America. The lead author of the NIDA report is Dr. Nora Volkow, who is also the head of NIDA. In High Times’ response to the study, they deftly point out that NIDA’s staffing and budget would be severely curtailed if marijuana were legalized nationwide. This makes the study a little unreliable, doesn’t it?

The study talks about marijuana withdrawal symptoms like anxiety, insomnia, and irritability, disregarding that many are using cannabis to self-medicate these very symptoms (meaning they aren’t so much withdrawal symptoms as they are regular life without marijuana).

40 Years of Inhaling Deeply

We congratulated High Times on their 40th anniversary just a little while ago, and now we’re happy to have the occasion to congratulate them again – this time, on the publication of a new coffee table book in honor of this anniversary. “High Times: A 40-Year History of the World’s Most Infamous Magazine” is, as the New York Times says, “a coffee table book for low, sticky coffee tables.” We can get behind that.

While we try to keep up with the happenings of High Times’ magazine, which exploded in the 1970s and 80s with its centerfolds featuring sexy photographs of bud, this book promises to provide a wealth of interesting stories. Even the New York Times book review contains some great little factoids – for instance, did you know that in 2004, High Times tried to nix its marijuana coverage and become a strictly literary magazine? Not really sure why they
