As a celebration of cannabis culture and medicinal/recreational inhalation of psychoactive smoke, Some Wicked put together a podcast dedicated to the lovely angiosperm we know as marijuana or cannabis. The plant was originally native to Asia but has since been cultivated and consumed throughout the world.
The principal active ingredient inducing a ‘high’ is known as Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol, or simply THC, which binds with endogenous receptors to alter neuronal activity and send the brain into a hazy state of enhanced sensory experience.
Although cannabis is widely consumed in many countries, it remains illegal for most of the world. In recent years, advocacy calling for reform of drug laws has increased exponentially, primarily focusing on decriminalizing or legalizing cannabis. There is a vast wealth of literature available that details the pharmacology and action of cannabis as well as the myriad of economic, political and medicinal potential benefits that could be attained through more liberal legislation. While bumping this podcast, take some time to bust up some high grade and feed your mind, or simply take a look around for some more information about the substance.
May 5th marks the annual international Marijuana March taking place in hundreds of cities across the world. A quick google search for Marijuana March 2012 + your (nearest) city will let you know any details for relevant gatherings. Enjoy the music, and to my blunted warriors… remember to not only stay faded, but stay educated.
