Real Girls Smoking Pot… Are Hot

Stoner Chicks are the hottest girls on the planet. Right above women with iPads and girls who like listening to Nikki Minaj. Not to mention it’s awesome seeing people like us doing stuff that we do. And the more people we see, the more we realize everyone really is just like us.
This is our third post sharing photos from fuckyeahstonerchicks.tumblr.com. Go see Part 1.

California Getting Closer to Banning Medical Marijuana Collectives From Opening Within 600 ft. of a Residence

On Wednesday, the LA Times reported that a California Senate Committee approved a proposed restriction that if passed would ban all medical marijuana collectives in the state from operating within 600 feet of a residential area (SB 847).  The bill is not law yet, but could become law soon.  “If you are considering opening a medical marijuana collective, you should consider this bill and try to position yourself at least 600 feet from a residence, if possible,” said medical marijuana lawyer Damian Nassiri.  “If you are a collective that is within 600 feet of a residence now, there are still legal arguments that can be made on your behalf, which could result in you being able to stay, although there is no guarantee of this.  We will have to wait and see if this law does pass and whether the law applies retroactively.”

Marijuana Allergies May Be More Common Than Thought

Marijuana hypersensitivity might be more common than previously thought, according to the results of a case series.

Though there are only a few case reports in the literature, “Marijuana allergy, I think, is fairly common,” said lead investigator Dr. Gordon Sussman, acting division director of clinical allergy and immunology at the University of Toronto. Even so, “It’s something physicians don’t really generally ask about. People should consider it in the diagnosis of rhinitis [and other allergic symptoms], and even in people that have asthma and anaphylaxis.”

The 17 patients who were included in the series reported that marijuana gave them runny noses or other problems; all ended up having positive marijuana skin prick test results, he reported. One patient in the series had an anaphylactic reaction after drinking marijuana tea.

That was the first patient in whom Dr. Sussman diagnosed a marijuana allergy. “I asked him in a detailed history what it could have been, and he actually had drunk marijuana tea. We knew at that point he had an IgE-mediated reaction to marijuana,” he said.

Curiosity piqued, and Dr. Sussman began asking allergy patients about marijuana use and reactions. A significant percentage reported symptoms from both contact and inhalation.

To confirm the diagnosis, he and his colleagues did skin-prick tests on the 17 patients between 21 and 58 years old, mostly men. They extracted buds or flowers in 5 mL of water for 15 minutes and pricked beneath drops placed on patients’ skin.

After 15 minutes, the 17 patients had wheals of 4-19 mm and surrounding flares. Fifteen presented with inhalation symptoms, including rhinitis and conjunctivitis, periorbital angioedema, wheezing, sinusitis, and throat swelling. Thirteen also reported hives from contact.

The anaphylaxis patient presented with anxiety, chest tightness, wheezing, GI cramping, and vomiting after drinking the tea.

“I don’t think it’s a contaminant; I’m pretty sure it’s an allergen in the marijuana they are reacting to,” Dr. Sussman said, adding that such reactions shouldn’t be a surprise because “marijuana is a weed, and weeds are generally known to be allergenic.”

Asking about marijuana use and past reactions should be a routine part of allergy work-ups, especially with expanding medical marijuana use. “People could actually be sensitized to marijuana and have a serious reaction. It’s important for people to recognize this,” Dr. Sussman said.

The researchers’ next step is to identify the actual allergens responsible for the reactions using a marijuana extract from a U.S. federal laboratory, serum from positive patients, and Western blot assays.

There was no outside funding for the study. Dr. Sussman said he had no disclosures.

What the Hell is Up With This Marijuana Leaf, Anyway?

http://www.howtogrowbud.com/2011/02/what-the-hell-is-up-with-this-marijuana-leaf-anyway/#axzz1IaKiv3Fk

By: Steve Elliott

Ever since I started writing about marijuana, every time I look for related images online I keep running across a pot leaf photo that just doesn’t make sense.

Unfortunately, it seems to be one of the most popular “marijuana” photos on the web, and, in fact, is the top result for a Google image search on the term “marijuana.” Annoyingly, it’s also the top image result for “marijuana leaf.”
But there’s something just wrong looking about that leaf, and it doesn’t take long to figure out why.
This photo — which Discovery Health says it sourced from Marijuana.com — seems to show what looks like a female cannabis flower coming out the base of a marijuana leaf, where the leaf blades meet the leaf stem.
Now, I know Marijuana.com isn’t known as the best place for accurate weed info. In fact, it’s covered with those maddening “fake marijuana” ads for “legal buds.” But are they really the source of this photo? I’ve not been able to find it on the site.

I’m not saying the photo is absolutely impossible, but I believe it’s just inaccurate — at least, I’ve never seen that happen. Have you? If so, do you have a photo?
Cannabis flowers, as all know, occur either at the very tips of stems, or right against the main stalk of the plant. This is true for both males and females. And while leaves often grow out of buds, buds don’t grow out of leaves — buds grow only out of stalks or stems.
This photo is all the more irritating because of its ubiquity. Seemingly no matter where one looks on the web, there it is, again and again, displaying its botanical unlikelihood as a supposedly representative picture of marijuana in article after article.
It seems to be a real favorite whenever a “mainstream” site is doing a “marijuana article” and looking for a royalty-free photo.
If the bud were down at the base of the leaf stem, rather than at the base of the leaf blades where they meet the stem, I would be more inclined to accept it as genuine. But since I’ve never seen a bud grow at this particular spot on a leaf, I’m skeptical.
There’s only the one photo, seemingly everywhere, showing this phenomenon. I’ve never been able to uncover another one like it.
Who took — or faked — this photo? Why does it depict a bud growing out the base of the topside of a leaf? And why is this inaccurate photo — or, at least, very atypical photo — the most popular marijuana photo on the Web?

Cannabis flowers typically grow out of stalks and stems, not out of leaves.

This is the first contest we’ve held at PENCIL METHOD since our inception.

Less than two months after the competition was initially announced, online interest for the Miss Medical Marijuana competition has surpassed what anyone at the popular Marijuana news magazine even thought was possible. The contest is taking place as part of ongoing efforts by the Marijuana Legalization movement to gain mainstream support for the cause.

Web site visitors will be given the chance to select who they think should be crowned Miss Medical Marijuana, starting the first of April and ending on the 20th, also known as 4/20 or International Weed Day. Anyone can log on to the web site at PencilMethod.com and vote for whoever they feel is the best candidate.
“It is our belief that through fun, innovative and interactive campaigns such as this one, we’ll be able to more effectively spread vital knowledge to young adults, many of whom already support our struggle without truly understanding why it’s important,” a representative of the PencilMethod.com staff said.
