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.

In our last post, we talked about the mystery of the cannabis plant . . . and by mystery, we mean, all the things we don’t know because the government won’t let scientists research it. And why won’t they let scientists research a plant? Great question! Think about it.

Anyway, scientists have always found a way to work around stupid government-imposed limitations on knowledge, so research DOES happen. Here’s what it looks like, according to the Washington Post:

A fantastic article recently published by Mint Press News addresses cannabis science vs. politics, starting with the question all pot smokers secretly ask themselves, “Is this better for my lungs than cigarettes?”

According the the article, researchers used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys and found that adults between the ages of 18 and 59 who smoke one joint per day had the same lung function as someone who didn’t partake in the plant.

We know that some regular joint smokers report bronchial symptoms from rolling papers that folks who use vaporizers don’t experience as much. But what does that say about cannabis, or about marijuana smoke, or about rolling papers?

Where’s the Weed in Obama’s State of the Union?

Pro-marijuana advocates are a little disappointed after President Obama’s State of the Union address last night. Many cannabis blogs have pointed out the glaring lack of comment about legalization, especially in light of the growing public dialogue about the failing “War on Drugs.”

Business Insider writer Anthony Weiner points out that this point of our President’s tenure marks the point at which he should start “securing his legacy.” For instance, he’s taken action on immigration, improved America’s relationship with Cuba, and announced a huge community college plan.

Typically when we see a topic taking up as much air time in the media as marijuana is, executive action follows. Weiner made some common sense suggestions to President Obama that we thought we’d share with y’all:
