Davidsen, Dana. “Wendy Davis Supports Medical Marijuana.” CNN, Cable News Network, 11 Feb. 2014, politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2014/02/11/wendy-davis-supports-medical-marijuana/.
Wendy davis is a big supporter on the legalization of medical marijuana. Medical marijuana can be used to treat sick patients or keep them moving throughout the day.She believes the medical marijuana would be good for the states as well as being able to have small amounts of the drug in possession. The drug can be helpful to those who need it. Instead of fighting the drug war we can taxing and let it be helpful to our world. She wants twitch how the legalization plays out in others states first before she can make and ultimate decision for her state. Her standpoint expresses the need for the legalization and that it will not hurt but help others in the long run. As well as helping the state because taxing the drug will help the eliminate the people who sell drugs on the side and make a profit. Her belief could be good for the state of Texas but she wants to eat to see how it works out for others first.

Pursell, Robert. “Studies Claim Medical Marijuana May Reduce Suicide Rates, Traffic Fatalities.” PBS, Public Broadcasting Service, 6 Feb. 2014, www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/studies-claim-medical-marijuana-may-reduce-suicide-rates-traffic-fatalities.
According to the article studies have shown that the legalization of marijuana has reduced suicide rates as well as traffic fatalities. Since marijuana has been legal the suicide rate of males between 20-29 has decreased by 10.9 percent. For males between 30-39 it has decreased by 94 percent. Traffic fatalities have fallen between 8 and 11 percent due to the legalization of weed. These numbers are coming from the first year of data since the legalization. Not only have suicide rates and traffic fatalities declines but so have beer consumption rates. The beer consumption has dropped 5 percent post legalization in the states. This is good for the states that have legalized it and could be a deciding factor for the other states trying to adopt this law. The best way for the states to look at this is to look at the positive things that are coming from the legalization. Reducing the rates of serious and deadly thing is. great way to help out nation as a whole.

Blumenauer, Earl. “Blumenauer Highlights Failed Federal Marijuana Prohibition.” YouTube, YouTube, 13 Feb. 2014, www.youtube.com/watch?v=EI3z6VWXQPw.
The legalization of marijuana is not being taken care of in the proper way. As shown in the video we are not going into this with a good set of ideas instead we are just trying to so no marijuana. The author of this video is telling us that just like tobacco we have found a way to decrease the number of users by showing the facts so that numbers will decrease. We need to look at this marijuana prohibition the same way we looked at tobacco use and try to narrow the number of users. The use of marijuana now is being abused by people who don't obey the laws such as dealers and others. If we put a tax on the marijuana and show the effects that it has on you maybe people will look at it like they looked at tobacco use. Blumenauer tells us that it is not marijuana that is killing our people but it is the other drugs such as heroin and pills that cause deaths. We spend millions of dollars on stoping the drug but it is not helping anything when it should be "reversing the trend". It is time that we come up with a solution on how to slow down the marijuana use and trade in ways as we did for tobaccco.

Clark: NFL players use pot for pain, stress

Ryan Clark says NFL players, including some of his Pittsburgh Steelers teammates, turn to smoking marijuana for a variety of reasons, especially as a means to relieve pain and manage stress.
theraw420's insight:

This is absolutely ridiculous.  Yes, there are NFL players that smoke, for whatever reason.  But what's worse...a bud or a steroid?  I'm sorry....the hypocrisy that goes on with weed is just stupid.  I am pretty sure the NFL knows about the weed, just like they know about the steroids, coke and whatever other RX drugs that players take. 

 

It is a shame that corporations (think NFL here) want to dictate how you kill your pain.  If a player is more comfortable smoking weed versus taking hydrocodone what is the problem? And tell me hydrocodone, which is routinely prescribed for pain (aka Dilaudid), is better than weed? Really? I'm guessing, but whatever prescription pain killers players are getting have to be strong enough to kill NFL type pain, and hydrocodone comes to mind for that kind of pain. 

 

I would really rather see NFL players have a choice in what they use to kill their pain. After all, it's their pain.

NFL players are using marijuana because it relieves pain and stress. Players are not using this drug to be cool as people would say, they are using it so they don't have to use pills or other legs drugs that they can become addicted to. Players look at smoking weed as the most natural way they can heal themselves instead of becoming a everyday pill user or even other hardcore drugs. Drug test are very rarely given to the players about one time during the offseason and they know when it is. Players can use the drugs the whole time they are nothing tested and never get caught. But what if they do test at a random time and over half of the NFL doesn't pass? They are not going to banned all of these players for this so what is there to do. People who work for the NFL believe there should be random drug test and the drug should not be allowed. They believe it is a bad substance that is harmful to the players as wells their health. Marijuana use in the NFL is not wanted by the corporation but is still being used by players today.

Before pot goes to polls, Tampa gets its first college of cannabis

Before pot goes to polls, Tampa gets its first college of cannabis | The legalization of marijuana | Scoop.it

I TAMPA — On the first day of class at cannabis college, the professor gave a quick survey of a long history: from a Chinese emperor's writings on hemp to the founding of High Times magazine.

theraw420's insight:

I like the idea of starting "cannaversities".  I think it shows the rest of the world that people are taking this seriously.  Of course, there will be those that will say people like Mr. Bufford are just jumping on the band wagon trying to make a buck in the marijuana industry without actually being "one of us".  But who says that everybody that participates has to blaze up? All of us don't drink, but we probably know as much about alcohol as any drinker.  I think it's a good thing that even those outside of the "blaze-up" want to provide us with choices.  It is definitely worth watching how cannaversities evolve. And cheers to Tampa for pushing towards MMJ!!
