3 Myths about Teen Use of Marijuana Debunked

Edit Article |

Posted: Jun 27, 2009 |Comments: 0

]]>

It is not uncommon for parents of a teen abusing a variety of illegal mind altering substances, to attempt to make a deal with the teen; “that if they quit everything else, they will be allowed to just use pot.” This is not surprising given that Marijuana is the most commonly abused drug in the world, primarily because of the euphoric effects it provides its users and the comforting false information spread worldwide about the drug. Here are three myths about marijuana use, every parent should know.

Myth #1: You cannot get physically addicted to marijuana.

On the contrary, you can become addicted to marijuana. People who use the drug on a daily basis, will usually experience withdrawal symptoms such as fatigue, poor sleep, poor appetite, and they can also become aggressive.

Myth # 2: Marijuana is Natural, so it must be good for you.

There are plenty of plants which are poisonous to human beings, so just because something is natural does not mean is safe for you. The negative effects of marijuana on the human body, primarily affect cognition. While subtle, the effects of marijuana, if used consistently over time can prove challenging to reverse. Some of the negative effects that marijuana has on the cognition are, loss of short term memory, and a slower processing speed, subsequently slowing down the brain’s ability to solve problems. In the case of adolescents, prolonged marijuana use will also slow or stall cognitive maturity and neuroplasticity.

Myth # 3: Marijuana is Mother Nature’s Natural Healer for Illnesses Which Cause Pain.

There is some truth to this, however the primary chemical in Marijuana, THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) has been supported by numerous studies, as the main factor for patients suffering from AIDS, to gain weight and slow the process of wasting away. THC is also a primary factor, that prevents cancer patients from experiencing chronic nausea. As a result of these findings the FDA has approved a number of THC pills, in which the primary chemical, THC has been filtered and extracted from marijuana. This is because, actual marijuana has over four hundred cancer causing chemicals, besides THC, and when these chemicals interact with THC in the body, the costs far outweigh the benefits of euphoria.

In any situation which involves oppression, school bullying, racism, sexism, ageism, tribalism, “pick your ism” there always exists a subtle yet significant gray area where the oppressor and the oppressed work together to maintain the status quo.

Must Knows About Starting a Marijuana Dispensary

Edit Article |

Posted: Jan 29, 2011 |Comments: 0
|



The use of marijuana today is not as strict as during the last decades. Presently, there are 15 states in the United States (Arizona being the latest) and other countries like Canada and Finland made the use of marijuana legal. This is only true if the drug will be used for therapeutic purposes and by qualified patients who possess a medical marijuana identification card. They can get their weeds from several licensed medical marijuana dispensaries.

Marijuana dispensary laws cover the rules and regulations that a medical marijuana dispensary should follow. Although laws are different from state to state, the bottom line is safe distribution of the drug to eligible patients and their primary caregivers. When starting to open a medical marijuana dispensary there are things that you need to follow.

1.      Know the rules. It is important to know the marijuana dispensary laws in your state since we are dealing with a prohibited drug. Federal laws still classifies marijuana as schedule I drug which means that physicians cannot prescribe it as well as pharmacies cannot distribute it. It is important to have a sufficient knowledge to prevent legal liabilities.

2.      Next is to know your clients. Marijuana dispensary laws in the 15 states assert the distribution of the drug to patients who have a valid medical marijuana card saying that they are fitted for marijuana treatment. Aside from the dispensary laws that you should be familiar with, you should also be well-informed about the requirements on how to be a qualified patient.

3.      Lastly, get the necessary documents for licensing in the department that is responsible for licensing in your state. If you still have matters to clarify, be sure to ask them before filling.

Because medical marijuana dispensary is a new business, these establishments are unique in approaching their clients. Be sure that you will leave a good impression to your customers. You can also have free consultation services or discounts.

How do you start the conversation with your teen about turning down drugs and alcohol?

By admin On November 7, 2010 No Comments

I know I am a big influence in my child’s life. Like many parents, I want to make sure my son is equipped to make healthy choices. Research from the Partnership for Drug-Free America shows that kids who learn consistently from their parents about the risks of drugs and alcohol are up to 50% less likely to use than those who don’t. What helpful parenting tips can you share?
As the parent of a teen, I agree parents should talk to their children at an early age about the risks of drugs and alcohol. Research from the Partnership for a Drug-Free America shows kids who learn about the risks of drugs at home are up to 50 percent less likely to use drugs, yet only 31 percent of kids report learning about the risks of drugs from their parents. We as parents should actively seek out and use vital resources provided, such as TimeToTalk.org, be creative about approaching the ‘drug talk’, and discuss what works and what does not with other parents. Talking with your kids about drugs and alcohol is one of the most important conversations you can have with them. Take the time to research, reach out to other parents and get comfortable about having the conversation and then take the plunge. Best wishes.

What are the rules about drugs in a Fraternity house in California?

By admin On September 29, 2010 3 Comments

I have heard that if there are unclaimed drugs in a California Fraternity, that all members are jailed for 15 days and assumed to be guilty. I have not been able to find any information on this online.

Does anyone have any additional information? Obviously, getting caught with drugs is a big no-no, but if a brother is not himself a drug-user, is he still liable for the use of others in the house?
