Cannabis Stash (2700 Years Old)

The world’s oldest weed stash was found in a 2,700-year-old grave in the Gobi Desert in 2008.

Nearly two pounds of the still-green plant material was found. A barrage of tests proved the marijuana possessed potent psychoactive properties and casts doubt on the theory that the ancients only grew the plant for hemp in order to make clothing, rope and other objects.

Yes, they used it for getting high too.

The stash was found lightly pounded in a wooden bowl in a leather basket near the head of a blue-eyed Caucasian man who died when he was about 45. Researchers believe he was a shaman from the Gushi people, who spoke a now-extinct language called Tocharian that was similar to Celtic.

What is still in question is how the marijuana was administered, since no pipes or other objects associated with smoking were found in the grave. It is currently believed it was ingested orally or fumigated. (Source)

IMAGINE RUNNING OR RIDING SWEATY,NAKED IN A FIELD OF WILD MARIJUANA

Imagine running or riding sweaty, naked in a field of wild marijuana: That’s how they harvest the good stuff

Picture-810Merkhat Sharipzhanov/ www.rferl.org, –– Kyrgyz officials announced on August 29 that 4.5 tons of marijuana had been confiscated from illegal drug traffickers in the last seven days. It was specifically mentioned that the majority of the marijuana was confiscated in Kyrgyzstan’s northern Chui Valley (known as the Chu Valley in Kazakh).

Shared between southern Kazakhstan and northern Kyrgyzstan, the Chu Valley has been one of the most infamous sources of marijuana in the former Soviet Union for as long as anyone can remember.

The Chu Valley’s wild marijuana — well known among drug users in the former Soviet republics as “dichka” — was always of the “highest quality.”

It was prized throughout the vast territory of the Soviet empire, which stretched from Brest (Belarus) to Vladivostok (Russian Far East) and from the Russian town of Salekhard in the north to the Turkmen city of Kushka in the south.

The Soviets did a lot to eliminate wild “dichka” plantations in the region. They burned the fields, used all possible and impossible pesticides, but it grew even better after all those measures.

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Chu’s “dichka” continues to be in demand on both the territory of the former Soviet Union and beyond.

August is the month for marijuana harvesting in the region, as that is when the marijuana starts producing the resin that has such a narcotic effect on the human brain.

For mass producers of marijuana, the easiest way to process the drug is to cut the buds in August, dry them, and then sell them as “grass.”

Sweating To Make Hash However, the most concentrated and popular form of marijuana is so-called “plastilin” (plasticine), and the way it is harvested and produced has not changed for centuries.

It begins with a freshly showered person riding naked for hours on a clean, washed horse inside a two-meter-high “forest” of marijuana.

Afterwards, the human body and that of the horse are covered with a thick layer of resin mixed with sweat.

(It only takes a few tiny pieces of “plastilin” to get high.)

This produces a substance that is usually dark brown in color, which is then thoroughly scraped off the human and horse’s bodies.

The mixture is subsequently pressed, molded into bars, and dried.

The “plastilin” that results from this process effectively comprises very concentrated marijuana bars.

A couple of small, pinhead-sized pieces from one of these bars added to a regular cigarette is enough to make the smoker happy.

This sort of marijuana is also very easy to carry or stash and is therefore very popular among drug users.

But it is a lot harder to produce this form of the drug because you need more time to make it.

Imagine 10, 20, or 30 individuals running or riding naked in a field of wild marijuana. It goes without saying that they are more exposed and it is easier to catch them. Nonetheless, people do it and they have been doing it since time immemorial.

And, of course, in Central Asia, there are people who can easily make local law enforcement officials “keep their eyes shut” during the harvest season, sharing with them either “plastilin” or the money earned from its sale.

For former Soviet citizens, it calls to mind a famous quote from the popular communist-era film “The White Sun of the Desert”: “The east is a strange place, Pete!” (“Vostok — delo tonkoe, Petrukha!”).

NH Man Arrested After Police Find 35 YouTube Videos Detailing Pot Growing Business

By WBZ-TV’s Michael Rosenfield

January 10, 2013 6:38 PM
 AUBURN, N.H. (CBS) – A 40-year-old Auburn, New Hampshire man is accused of growing marijuana in his home.

Kyle Berry allegedly made 35 videos of his grow operation and published them on YouTube.

A tipster told authorities about the videos and investigators raided Berry’s apartment this week.

They found 16 marijuana plants and about one pound of loose marijuana.

Berry is charged with two felonies of illegal manufacture of a controlled drug and possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute.

In most of the videos Berry cannot be seen, but his reflection can be made out in one of the shots, police said. He also allegedly used his initials in his YouTube channel name “beginnergrowerKTB1.”

 “He’s not the brightest person in the world,” said Rockingham County Sheriff Michael Downing. “There’s indications that he was selling the product. This isn’t the first grow he’s had.”

Berry was bailed out of jail by his mother but there was no sign of him at his basement apartment.

The neighbor upstairs says he never saw or smelled anything suspicious.

“I don’t know anything about it,” said neighbor Wayne Haggie. “I’ve known him for seven years.”

In the videos, the narrator proudly shows off the equipment, lights and air filters. He also talks about the plants, the seeds he imports from the United Kingdom, and the fertilizers and chemicals used.

Investigators are testing the chemicals and depending on how hazardous they are, Berry could face more charges.

Authorities say Berry is “well-known” by law enforcement and has a lengthy criminal record which includes arrests for shoplifting and driving without a license.

According to court documents obtained by WBZ-TV, Berry told investigators he had been growing marijuana for about 8 months.

Cannabis farm found after note on police car

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

  FOLLOW  

POLICE discovered a cannabis farm after being tipped off by an anonymous note left on the windscreen of a patrol car, Lincoln Crown Court has been told.

Officers acting on the information subsequently visited a property in the hamlet of Bloxholm just off the A15 near Ruskington and immediately smelled cannabis.

Julia King, prosecuting, said that Raymond James, who was living at the property at the time, claimed the smell was from a cannabis spliff he had just thrown on the fire. But the strong aroma led officers to query his response and James then took them into the cellar where they found cannabis plants being grown. Miss King said 75 cannabis plants were found in electrically heated trays with special lighting installed.

A search of the property and outbuildings led to the discovery of more sophisticated cannabis growing equipment as well as nearly £3,000 cash.

 

James, 41, formerly of Bloxholm but now living at Margam, West Glamorgan, South Wales, admitted producing cannabis on January 10 this year. He was jailed for 18 months.

Judge Michael Heath told him “In my judgement the only justifiable sentence I can impose is one of immediate custody.”

Jonathon Dee, defending, said James was homeless when he was offered accommodation at the farm. He said that at the time James was in debt to a loan shark and agreed to grow the cannabis to clear his loan.

Mr Dee said: “He is a nervous and anxious individual who has lived a fairly wretched life with spells of homelessness and spells of alcoholism. He had been out of trouble for nearly 20 years but he was in a fairly desperate situation.

“He owed money and was told he could repay it by doing this.”

TOP TEN CANNABIS STUDIES THE GOVERNMENT WISHED IT HAD NEVER FUNDED

Top 10 Cannabis Studies the Government Wished it Had Never Funded

 

 

10) MARIJUANA USE HAS NO EFFECT ON MORTALITY: A massive study of California HMO members funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) found marijuana use caused no significant increase in mortality. Tobacco use was associated with increased risk of death. Sidney, S et al. Marijuana Use and Mortality. American Journal of Public Health. Vol. 87 No. 4, April 1997. p. 585-590. Sept. 2002. 

9) HEAVY MARIJUANA USE AS A YOUNG ADULT WON’T RUIN YOUR LIFE: Veterans Affairs scientists looked at whether heavy marijuana use as a young adult caused long-term problems later, studying identical twins in which one twin had been a heavy marijuana user for a year or longer but had stopped at least one month before the study, while the second twin had used marijuana no more than five times ever. Marijuana use had no significant impact on physical or mental health care utilization, health-related quality of life, or current socio-demographic characteristics. Eisen SE et al. Does Marijuana Use Have Residual Adverse Effects on Self-Reported Health Measures, Socio-Demographics or Quality of Life? A Monozygotic Co-Twin Control Study in Men. Addiction. Vol. 97 No. 9. p.1083-1086. Sept. 1997 

8) THE “GATEWAY EFFECT” MAY BE A MIRAGE: Marijuana is often called a “gateway drug” by supporters of prohibition, who point to statistical “associations” indicating that persons who use marijuana are more likely to eventually try hard drugs than those who never use marijuana – implying that marijuana use somehow causes hard drug use. But a model developed by RAND Corp. researcher Andrew Morral demonstrates that these associations can be explained “without requiring a gateway effect.” More likely, this federally funded study suggests, some people simply have an underlying propensity to try drugs, and start with what’s most readily available. Morral AR, McCaffrey D and Paddock S. Reassessing the Marijuana Gateway Effect. Addiction. December 2002. p. 1493-1504. 

7) PROHIBITION DOESN’T WORK (PART I): The White House had the National Research Council examine the data being gathered about drug use and the effects of U.S. drug policies. NRC concluded, “the nation possesses little information about the effectiveness of current drug policy, especially of drug law enforcement.” And what data exist show “little apparent relationship between severity of sanctions prescribed for drug use and prevalence or frequency of use.” In other words, there is no proof that prohibition – the cornerstone of U.S. drug policy for a century – reduces drug use. National Research Council. Informing America’s Policy on Illegal Drugs: What We Don’t Know Keeps Hurting Us. National Academy Press, 2001. p. 193. 

6) PROHIBITION DOESN’T WORK (PART II): DOES PROHIBITION CAUSE THE “GATEWAY EFFECT”?): U.S. and Dutch researchers, supported in part by NIDA, compared marijuana users in San Francisco, where non-medical use remains illegal, to Amsterdam, where adults may possess and purchase small amounts of marijuana from regulated businesses. Looking at such parameters as frequency and quantity of use and age at onset of use, they found no differences except one: Lifetime use of hard drugs was significantly lower in Amsterdam, with its “tolerant” marijuana policies. For example, lifetime crack cocaine use was 4.5 times higher in San Francisco than Amsterdam. Reinarman, C, Cohen, PDA, and Kaal, HL. The Limited Relevance of Drug Policy: Cannabis in Amsterdam and San Francisco. American Journal of Public Health. Vol. 94, No. 5. May 2004. p. 836-842. 

5) OOPS, MARIJUANA MAY PREVENT CANCER (PART I): Federal researchers implanted several types of cancer, including leukemia and lung cancers, in mice, then treated them with cannabinoids (unique, active components found in marijuana). THC and other cannabinoids shrank tumors and increased the mice’s lifespans. Munson, AE et al. Antineoplastic Activity of Cannabinoids. Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Sept. 1975. p. 597-602. 

4) OOPS, MARIJUANA MAY PREVENT CANCER, (PART II): In a 1994 study the government tried to suppress, federal researchers gave mice and rats massive doses of THC, looking for cancers or other signs of toxicity. The rodents given THC lived longer and had fewer cancers, “in a dose-dependent manner” (i.e. the more THC they got, the fewer tumors). NTP Technical Report On The Toxicology And Carcinogenesis Studies Of 1-Trans- Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol, CAS No. 1972-08-3, In F344/N Rats And B6C3F Mice, Gavage Studies. See also, “Medical Marijuana: Unpublished Federal Study Found THC-Treated Rats Lived Longer, Had Less Cancer,” AIDS Treatment News no. 263, Jan. 17, 1997. 

3) OOPS, MARIJUANA MAY PREVENT CANCER (PART III): Researchers at the Kaiser-Permanente HMO, funded by NIDA, followed 65,000 patients for nearly a decade, comparing cancer rates among non-smokers, tobacco smokers, and marijuana smokers. Tobacco smokers had massively higher rates of lung cancer and other cancers. Marijuana smokers who didn’t also use tobacco had no increase in risk of tobacco-related cancers or of cancer risk overall. In fact their rates of lung and most other cancers were slightly lower than non-smokers, though the difference did not reach statistical significance. Sidney, S. et al. Marijuana Use and Cancer Incidence (California, United States). Cancer Causes and Control. Vol. 8. Sept. 1997, p. 722-728. 

2) OOPS, MARIJUANA MAY PREVENT CANCER (PART IV): Donald Tashkin, a UCLA researcher whose work is funded by NIDA, did a case-control study comparing 1,200 patients with lung, head and neck cancers to a matched group with no cancer. Even the heaviest marijuana smokers had no increased risk of cancer, and had somewhat lower cancer risk than non-smokers (tobacco smokers had a 20-fold increased lung cancer risk). Tashkin D. Marijuana Use and Lung Cancer: Results of a Case-Control Study. American Thoracic Society International Conference. May 23, 2006. 

1) MARIJUANA DOES HAVE MEDICAL VALUE: In response to passage of California’s medical marijuana law, the White House had the Institute of Medicine (IOM) review the data on marijuana’s medical benefits and risks. The IOM concluded, “Nausea, appetite loss, pain and anxiety are all afflictions of wasting, and all can be mitigated by marijuana.” While noting potential risks of smoking, the report ad
