Myth Busted: Marijuana Overdose

2

In a small suburb of New York City, today it was proven that it is impossible to overdose on marijuana. It has been a common myth among many recreational cannabis consumers and medical marijuana patients that marijuana overdose can occur if a smoker can manage to smoke his or her own weight in marijuana in one day. However, this in and of itself is impossible…

1. When you smoke marijuana, you get the munchies.

2. When you get the munchies, you eat food.

3. When you eat food, you gain weight.

4. So, the act of smoking marijuana causes you to gain weight.

Now, when you smoke a gram of marijuana it is more than likely that you will increase your weight by much more than just one gram. The munchies will cause you to eat, and the cotton mouth will cause you to quench your thirst. Both actions will lead to an increase in your body weight. And, you will now have to smoke the same weight in marijuana as the food and water you just ingested.

This process is often cyclical, but will never lead to an overdose. Eventually you will simply go to sleep.

Additionally, if you can afford your weight in marijuana or possess your weight in marijuana, please contact us immediately.

Hemp and Flag Day

7

Don't you wish Betsy Ross made this the first American flag?

Well, I know we’re a day late. I’ll blame it on being high, but yesterday was Flag Day in the United States. It is believed by many historians that the first American flag was made from hemp. It is undoubtedly one of the most versatile materials known to man and was widely used during the colonial period. In fact, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew hemp, so did Henry Ford, heck even us at MJMB have even dabbled in the world of cannabis cultivation. Everyone does it, or should try to at the least. But, moving on to the next point we’d like to make. As many of you may know, Betsy Ross was commissioned by three members of the Continental Congress to make the first ever American flag. George Washington showed her a design that included 13 six pointed stars. Betsy Ross showed Mr. Washington how to cut a five pointed star with one snip of the scissors from a rectangular piece of cloth. Because of this amazing ability, Betsy was chosen to be the creator of our nation’s first flag. God bless America, and we know he does because he gave us weed.

A few things you need to know about hemp.

Just a few uses of hemp.

First of all there are over 25,000 well known and documented uses for hemp, for matters of time we will focus on a small percentage of those uses. But, before we begin. What is hemp?

Hemp is the fiber that is obtained by growing certain strains of marijuana. The strain of marijuana that is used to produce hemp is not good for producing herb to smoke, its an either or kind of thing. However, because it is a strain of cannabis it is illegal in the United States. The United States is the largest consumer of hemp products and we are the largest importer of hemp in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, China is the world’s largest exporter of hemp.

The seeds of the plant are highly nutritious, and growing hemp could help fight world hunger. The oil from the seeds, just like petroleum, could be turned into plastic and used for anything that is made from plastic. The stalk of the hemp plant can be used to make paper, and rope, and clothes. Hemp can be turned into ethanol, which can power a car. Hemp is the best biomass to use for making ethanol, because it is the most productive and grows the fastest. Henry Ford advocated the use of ethanol to power cars. The inventor of the car, in essence, wanted his invention to be powered by marijuana. But, back to paper. Since marijuana grows every year, no tress need to be cut down, and no one needs to wait 25 years for them to be ready. By using an acre of land to grow hemp instead of trees, you could generate 4.1 times the amount of paper. Hemp can be used to make soap, which is biodegradable.

Now, keep in mind. While hemp is a type of marijuana you can’t get high from it. The government used to tell people to grow hemp. George Washington grew hemp, so did man of the other Founding Fathers. During WWII farmers were ordered to grow hemp in order to make parachute cables for the troops fighting in Europe. That’s right hemp is strong enough to use for parachute cables. In the early days of America, when we were just colonies, farmers HAD to grow hemp. And, another thing I forgot to mention.

Henry Ford. Actually made a car out of hemp. The frame was made of hemp, and guess what? It was ten times stronger than a steel frame. The seats were made of hemp. The stick shift was made of hemp resin, and turned into plastic. Better yet, based on what I already told you. Guess what the car ran on? You got it, hemp. Hemp, and the whole marijuana family of plants, is one of the best discoveries throughout the course of human history. Seeing as hemp can be used to power a car, let me drop this statistic on you. If we planted 6% of the total United States land area in hemp, we could power the whole country on biomass fuel. A measly 6%, thats like what you pay in sales tax, that’s nothing. In fact, the sales tax off of all the products we could make from hemp would generate millions of dollars in revenue. We could more equally balance are imports and are exports.

As Jack Herer has preached for decades, hemp can save America, if we let it.
