Howdy readers!

A jolly time we are having in Colorado’s Wild Wild West. So good in fact, that “High Times” Magazine, and all Cannabis based print media, has been labeled as “Porn” by the Colorado legislature, and must be kept behind newsstand counters. Kush magazine used to be free at 7-11; High Times used to be visible up front. Now I can’t even find them most places. But weed stories are on the news almost every night. Crazy times…UPDATE: Colorado has just thrown out this law and my nug porn will return to normal places J

I was sent a link to an Italian Government sponsored study on “Future Cannabis Medications” that cited Rick Simpson’s method twenty times! I want to emphasize, the study does not focus on if Phoenix Tears Cannabis Oil works, but on what the best way to extract the cannabinoids from cannabis is. People in the world know it works! Is Naphtha really best, as Rick has always said? Check out the study results for yourself at the link at the bottom of this post/e-mail. I have said before Rick Simpson will win a Nobel Prize for re-releasing the phoenix tears formula. If he keeps getting cited by official government studies like Italy’s, it is going to happen. And he deserves it, I might add!

Speaking of Rick Simpson, he looks incredibly young, vibrant, and healthy in the movie American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny, by Kevin Booth. I saw the film at Cherry Creek Mall Cinema in Denver, a rare pot event in upscale Cherry Creek, but it was great to see it on the big screen. Did you know there are no cannabinoid receptors in the part of the brain stem where breathing and cardiovascular function is controlled (medulla oblongata), and that is why it’s impossible to overdose and die on cannabis? Its information like this, along with Cash Hyde’s incredible story, that make me say everyone should see this movie. Prohibition is going by the wayside, and its films like Kevin’s that will help push it into the fire. I spark one up for Cannabis Destiny – go see it!!

A study in Israel also determined Cannabis is effective in protecting the brain both before and after traumatic brain injuries. There seems to very little this plant is not effective at. Treating dogs can be another use of Cannabis, a veterinarian in CA reports. I have seen this and can verify the effects of the oil on dogs can be as amazing as on people, and it usually takes less oil. Another web posting describes Mango’s and its ingredient Myrcene, and their effect on “getting high” with cannabis. Reportedly the mango extract can make the high “higher” if used an hour before, and can lengthen the high if used while already high. Mango in the raw may be even better than the extract. Mango Smoothie, anyone?

In local Colorado news, Rev. Brandon Baker of the THC Ministry, which put on my film premiere in Denver and subsequent screening in Colorado Springs, is suing the State of Colorado for the illegality of the blood draws in the new THC DUI law. I applaud Rev. Baker for his efforts, and would like to add Olympic athletes can win Gold medals and have 149 nanograms of THC per ML of blood, but in Colorado we are considered “impaired” at only 5. That doesn’t make much sense – the limit should be much higher or determined on a person’s actual roadside sobriety and ability to drive a vehicle. Let alone the issue of a cop forcing you to a hospital to have your blood drawn and its blatant unconstitutionality. The law will probably stay on the books, though…sad.

On a happier note: HEMP IS LEGALIZED IN COLORADO! As is recreational Cannabis, of course. But all Colorado residents can apply for a permit to grow 10 acres of industrial Hemp. I’m gonna try and do it :-) I was able to be in the Governor’s office for the signing of the Hemp Production act in Colorado, and a video of the event can be viewed below. I also did a short “History of Hemp: Hemp for Victory!” Video documenting how hemp became legal in our state. A third video released the past month also shows the complete press conference and signing of our recreational marijuana regulation bill, which will allow pot shops to open in Colorado in January of 2014, and sell to anyone 21 or over. It’s gonna be awesome :-)

We also have a special “Batch Two” of Vitamin Cannabis with a much higher CBD content, and it is wonderful to be in a position to have such a blessed medicine. Fight for your Cannabis rights, folks – it will mean the world to you in the future!

 

Positive thoughts your way
