Does early pot use make you dumb?

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

According to a newly presented study conducted by Harvard researchers, people who began smoking marijuana before the age of 16 score significantly lower on a standard test of intelligence than those who began smoking after 16. What does this study mean? Maybe the earlier onset smokers were more likely to be stoned while they were evaluated. In any case, check out the data yourself here at WebMD.

Did you smoke in your younger days? Let us know whether you think it made you dumber by commenting below.

LSD and the Spirit World

Sunday, November 14th, 2010

Hidden in a dense green forest sits the remote village of a close-knit tribe. They are a simple people, one of the few remnants of ‘uncivilized’ culture not yet blemished by well-intentioned travelers. They all work as one to hunt, gather or cook food, tend to the young and elderly and perform all the various daily tasks any tribal village must. They sing together, eat together, dance together, tend to each other’s wounds and share in every aspect of life. But there is one person whom they all must turn to, someone who possesses a quality unlike any other member.

Prop 203 has passed. Medical Ganja now allowed in Arizona!

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

It turns out that not every marijuana-related ballot initiative has to face the disgrace of being voted down this electoral season. As of this Friday Arizona approved a measure which allows medical access to marijuana. For more information on this one I’ll defer to the journalists over at the Examiner: With passage of Prop 203, Arizona becomes 15th medical marijuana state

We would love for you to comment on this development, especially if you live in Arizona.

The layman’s perspective on a LSD trip circa 1953

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

LSD trip

My 12 hours as a madman is the name of an essay–which is a fancy term for TRIP REPORT. Written in 1953 by the aptly-named Sid Katz, a Canadian journalist who had a thing for covering the mental health scene. The main part of the essay is Sid’s best, and very creatively told, recollection of an acid trip at a mental hospital, all for the sake of science. Sid takes 200 ug of very good acid and has a strong trip. By employing a variety of Ph.D. mental health professionals as trip sitters, Sid managed to keep a very good record of the trip even though he abandoned his “notebook” after the first entry! Very interesting read if you’ve never taken LSD or a psychedelic before, and probably a story you can identify with if you have. Clicking the trippy photo above this text will also take you to the essay.

LA Times article on Prop 19

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

prop 19

Pot legalization advocates are undeterred by the defeat of Prop. 19.

Everything but the period in the above sentence links to an LA Times article covering the response by various legalization bodies to Prop. 19′s defeat. A heartening read for the disappointed armchair cannabis legalization activist in all of us. Check it out and please leave feedback on this article or the site in general by commenting below!

First Drug Legislation to Make me Chuckle Instead of Cry

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

As anyone with experience will know, Four Loko seems unlike almost any alcohol drink. And as anyone who has looked at the ingredients will know, it is the alcoholic equivalent to a speedball (a bit hyperbolic, of course). Well, thanks to this caffeinated (and usually guarinated and taurinated) malt beverage, I am reminded just how forgetful people are about prohibition.

If you click this link here, you will learn about Michigan’s new law banning Four Loko (and, as I understand it, all alcoholic caffeinated malt beverages) from sale in the state. It should be noted that a probable major contributing factor here is this incident, in which nine college freshman were hospitalized after drinking Four Loko. Because, you know, college freshman never get hospitalized for any other alcoholic beverage.

Expect other municipalities, states and hopefully not the Federal Government (don’t hold your breath) to soon follow suit.

Yeah, This Post is About That

Well, what can I say America? You are, once again, a complete disappointment. I became disillusioned with American politics in general long ago, so to be honest it wasn’t too surprising or upsetting to find that one of the most important pieces of drug legislation was shot down by voters today. Even though I privately assumed this would happen months ago, when I first learned about Prop 19, the possible failure was an unspeakable opinion for most marijuana reform advocates.
