Marijuana is Safest Substance on Earth, Says Prince of Pot Marc Emery, the infamous drug trafficker and one of the top 50 most-wanted in the world, feels ganja should be legalised

Dubbed “The Prince of Pot” Emery is a powerful influence in the global ganja culture. Currently facing extradition to the United States, Emery told MiD DAY in an exclusive online interview from Vancouver, British Columbia, that the Dalai Lama and Martin Luther King Jr are two of his greatest influences and he seek to emulate them.
Emery who has been twice to India in 1992 and 1997 said he procured marijuana easily in all the places he stayed “a lovely kilo of cannabis from an Ayurvedic doctor in Trivandrum,” from the tuk-tuk wallah in Mysore, smoked with the first generation of silicon computer nerds just starting in those days and Mehrangargh Fort in Jodhpur, and in the desert sands beyond Jaisalmer in Rajasthan.
The pot activist says coconut toddy and methylated alcohol would kill more people in India this year than cannabis would over the next century. According to him Mumbai and Bangalore are the most open and transparent communities in the country and could be considered for legalising marijuana in India.

¦¦¦¦¦ Cannabinoid Factoid ¦¦¦¦¦

Does Marijuana Reduce Your Social Anxiety Levels?

“Studies show that the Endocannabinoid System – the body’s natural Cannabinoid System – plays a major role in regulating anxiety. Cannabinoid Receptors – the binding sites of Cannabinoids – are highly concentrated in certain parts of the brain that are responsible for anxiety, including the amygdala and hypothalamus.”

“Interestingly, studies show that patients experience higher levels of anxiety when Cannabinoid Receptors are blocked by drugs such as rimonabant. Likewise, regular cannabis users report that marijuana helps to reduce their anxiety levels.”Image

Gopal Manuka’s point of view on the eve of National Education Day

It’s 11th of November 2013 and the birth anniversary of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad remarked or celebrated or observed as National Education Day in India. “Each One, Teach One” is the SLOGAN for the mark of remembrance.

Indian schools do not provide sex education and cannabis awareness to their students due to some obligations by the Government. Sex apart, but Gopal Manuka is all set for answering all the questions asked by teenagers especially those who think that “Marijuana” is a drug.

In our previous posts we have already discussed about how the people blindly follow the government regarding the social status of “Marijuana”. In Hindi, “Marijuana” used for smoking is called “Gaanja” (गाँजा ). Frankly speaking no body, even the potheads hate this word because it sounds too cheap and kwirky. While on the Facebook, We met across many boys and girls who enquired about the negative aspects of “Marijuana”. There aren’t any in reality but This bad headache and some times a deep cough will irritate you, but not for a longer time. THERE NO RECORDS WHICH CAN PROVE THAT SOMEONE HAS DIED OF CONSUMING MARIJUANA. So, naturally it’s not gonna harm you. You may wanna taste “CHARAS” or Hashish but it’s too mainstream. Cocaine is out of boundary, what we talk about is Marijuana.

So, people if you get any kind of problem ! Rush to us…!

Now that America is changing its mind on cannabis its time for India to do the same

Smoking cannabis is getting more acceptable around the world. In 2003 Canada became the first country to allow medical marijuana; 19 US states allow medical use. Chile, Guatemala, Columbia and Ecuador have decriminalised personal use. Uruguay has legalised it.
The Netherlands has always tolerated it. In America, Washington state and Colorado passed laws in November 2012 legalising the consumption and sale to adults over the age of 18. Both states set up regulatory systems to license and tax marijuana growers and retailers.

There was only one problem though. Lawmakers weren’t sure if the federal government would continue to prosecute cannabis crimes under federal statutes.
Last month, all doubts were laid to rest when America’s Department of Justice announced that the federal government would not prosecute marijuana crimes in those states.
This is not all. Legalisation bills have been introduced in Maine and Rhode Island; Massachusetts and Vermont are in the process of discussing possible bills and there is talk of ‘ballot initiatives’ in California and Oregon.
In April thousands smoked pot openly at a pro-marijuana concert-rally at Civic Centre Park in Denver.
Change
In Colorado, marijuana retail stores are expected to open as early as January 2014. People above the age of 21 can buy an ounce while non-residents will be able to purchase up to one quarter of an ounce.
These are welcome winds of change. For far too long governments have wasted precious resources on criminalizing and fighting a soft drug that is used by millions – 162 million adults use marijuana once a year; 22.5 million use it everyday.
In Sri Lanka, according to one estimate, one out of three people smoke the aromatic weed. It’s taken time but realisation has finally seeped through that cannabis use is far less harmful than alcohol or tobacco consumption.

Cooking with weed

Even for experienced smokers, eating foods containing marijuana can be a whole new experience. It might the perfect solution for those who don’t want to smoke, or have trouble smoking, i.e. people with asthma. There are virtually no health risks, as you are not smoking and there is no subsequent damage to your respiratory system.

Cooking with Marijuana

Most weed-related recipes call for the making of a certain quantity of “Marijuana Butter” or “Bud Butter”, which is then used as a replacement for standard butter in a cooking situation. To prepare pot for eating it has to be heated in some way. It won’t work if the weed is eaten without preparation, because the digestive system is unable to digest THC directly. When cooking with weed, it is very important to use fat (oil, butter, milk) because THC (the stuff that gets you stoned) is fat soluble and not water soluble. It is therefore impossible to get high from pot tea, for example, without adding some milk.

How to make Bud Butter

Cooking with weed offers an alternative to inhaling marijuana smoke to get high. By using “Bud Butter” in your recipes you can consume the marijuana in a tasty way.

Here’s one recipe for Bud Butter:

Ingredients
1 lb. of butter (not margarine!)
1/2 ounce of finely ground marijuana

Method
Melt the butter in a sauce pan until it’s simmering.
Add the marijuana and let simmer for 30 minutes or so until the butter has turned green from the marijuana.
Pour butter through a strainer to remove all the pieces of marijuana.
Chill until solid.

What are the effects?

It can take anywhere from 20 minutes to even up to 4-5 hours for the effects to set in. The biggest problem here is to find the right amount. When smoked, the effects set in almost immediately, so it is easy to judge how much you need. After eating some weed, some users are too impatient, and they think they need more. While it is not possible to overdose on weed, the effects of eating too much cannabis are not pleasant. You may feel sick, confused, unable to move or talk, and your coordination may be heavily affected. These effects may last a long time, much longer than when smoked. It is therefore important not to eat too much. Start with a low dose, and increase it the next time, if needed. Experiment to find the right amount. If you eat too much, a high dose of vitamin c (200mg or more) may help to make you feel better.

When eaten, pot takes longer to work, depending on: the amount and quality of the weed/hash, the rate of your digestion system, and the amount of food you’ve eaten beforehand. For best results, we recommend not eating anything at least 2-3 hours before eating your marijuana.

How much weed do I use?

Since weed is not an “officially regulated” product it’s hard to recommend an amount to use as the strength of the weed will vary greatly. Many people prefer to use “cabbage,” or the leafy, low quality type of weed, in their cooking. Buds are usually reserved for smoking, but of course you’re free to cook buds, but any cooking disasters will be a lot more expensive!

Trial and error is your guide here. If you’re making bud butter, you might go through a few saucepans full of cabbage before the butter is green and smelly enough to be useful for cooking. It’s a good idea to note down how much you’ve used so you know for next time. 

As a general guide, a mild dose using high quality cannabis, extracted properly into butter or oil, would be 0.5g. To get really high use 1g. So – 7 brownies=7 grams of cannabis. 

So for a 14 brownie batch that gets everyone pretty high using 1g per person would be a half ounce. 28 brownies at .5 a gram, or buy a 1/4 of cannabis, make 7 1 gram brownies for 7 people, or 14 .5gram brownies. Image
