Some call it the demon weed some call it just plane fun well here is the official statistics on the plant known as Marijuana. For starters we?ll go with the health part of the plant. Many ?Educational? and or other health videos in school have you believe that Marijuana is going to ruin your life and leave you brain dead, but there has been no known proof that it has had any long term brain damage to the human brain. The only damage suggested by American Medical Association (AMA) is that it effects the short term memory and they only believe your memory will be affected as long as you smoke it in large amounts afterwards when you quit they say memory should return to normal. The AMA also states that the drug is better in your lungs than Tabacco in the way that it does less damage because people smoke it less to get the effects needed. They also say that you still shouldn?t smoke it and it would be healthier to ingest the drug. There have also been false reports made on the drug to scare people away from using it. For instance Dr. Gabriel Nahas was fired for falsifying reports that the drug did kill humans by experimenting on monkeys. He put the animals into a room and exposed them to proportionally more Marijuana than a human would smoke in a life time to prove his point, but he hid the fact of the amount of smoke used. The AMA supports the legalization of Marijuana because its applications to medical use in many ways.

Hashish is defined in the websters dictionary as a narcotic derived from hemp that is chewed, smoked or drunk for its intoxicating effects. Well… I guess that is about the best way you could put it. Hashish is most widely used in the Netherlands and Germany in places called well… Hashish Bars. There you can purchase it and use it which is very uncommon for most countries because it is illegal every where else. Hashish Oil is pretty much the same thing but it is in an oil form therefor making it more potent.
The first known use of marijuana is in 8000 B.C. where it was used for clothing and other useful little items. The first known time that marijuana was smoked was in the year 2700 B.C. in the country of China for religious purposes. Famous people that are have said to smoke the drug were Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, and yes it was even rumored that John F. Kennedy Jr. was to have smoked it because it remedied his back problems.
There are many different ways that people have invented to smoke it. The three main ways are the Joint, the Bowl, and one of the most liked styles the Bong. Joints are one of the most commonly used types of ?weed? smoking. It involves using a small sheet of paper called rolling papers these can be bought at any local convenience store. You roll the Marijuana by hand into the paper like a cigarette.
Another common way of taking in the smoke is through a small pipe or ?Bowl?. This is the easiest version of smoking it in that you only have to put the drug into a relatively small container like you would stuff Tabacco into a pipe. These are usually found in Cigarette and The least common but ?healthiest? way to smoke the drug is through what the inventive, yet scientifically smart smokers have come up with called a ?Bong?. This device has many features to it, for instance you use water in this device to filter out the worst part of the smoke and leave nearly all THC. Some Bongs and Bowls come with what smokers call a carb which increases the hits intensity and volume. The governments standing on Marijuana seems to be constantly changing. Most States spend millions of dollars in trying to control the substance and stop its use and distribution. Some people think that its a waste of time to spend the money and time on doing so but others seem to feel differently about it ( probably because they never used it before ) and try to futile stamp out its use. Just recently California pass a law saying that it was legal to have the possession of and smoke the drug but only for medical use and even then the law is very strict on the people that smoke it legally.
INTRODUCTION: There is an ongoing debate on whether drug testing of welfare recipients is legal in many of the local state governments. Welfare is suppose to meet the basic needs and drugs are far from the basic human needs. If recipients on using drugs get all the benefits they are more likely to take their check and spend it on drugs rather than their needs. Drug testing people randomly who ...
Drug testing for Marijuana is relatively simple yet kind of odd. A doctor will walk up to you with a small plastic disposable cup and he will ask you for a urine sample. Now do not take offense at this, this is what you have to do for the test hes not some weirdo asking for a urine sample for his collection back at home. He will then take the sample to a lab and go through the gruesome progress of seeing if you urine sample has traces of THC in it the average test will take about a day. There are a few good but extremely odd ways of defeating the test if you now your going to test positive one of which is a pill called Golden seal not much is known about how it does it but it does flush your system of the drug. Another way is a little more odd than the first you drink lots of vinegar (yuk!) I know what your going to say I wont do that ever! Well your wrong when it comes down to it, if you nice paying job is on the line well… chug chug chug away cause that is There is another way to test for Marijuana and that is though hair sampling. This process is allot more expensive than urine sampling but it is more effective in detecting the drug. In fact the only way to not get detected is to shave every single hair off your body, and that means EVERY hair including eyelashes, eyebrows, armpit hairs, leg hairs, arm hairs, and yes even down in the spot where it counts. If you do know your going to take a hair test well kiss the job goodbye cause well I think they will know when you come in for the test with out a single Well I?m going to cut things short hope you dont mind but I?m going to pass out otherwise. Its been fun ta ta.
