The Truth About Marijuana

So today, I decided to do things a little different. Since the legalization of marijuana for recreational use, the number of people I come across who are interested in knowing how this works is ncreasing day by day. It’s in light of this that I would like to share a video of how a little girl was able to change the mind of world renowned doctor Sanjay Gupta on the use of marijuana to treat and cure terminal illness.

Pot Smoking Beiber And Father Abuse Flight Attendant

Pot-Smoking-Beiber-And-Father-Abuse-Flight-Attendant© dawn.evil14_joergerick

Last Friday, teen singer Justin Beiber, his father and a group of ten friends boarded Justin’s leased Gulfstream jet bound for New York. With the upcoming Superbowl, the singer had intended to spend the weekend chilling and watch the big game from a private suite in Metlife stadium before sampling the big apple’s vibrant nightlife.

However, things did not go according to plan. This pot smoking gang terrorized the flight attendant so much that the pilot had to ask the flight attendant to stay with him in the cockpit. Reports from the incident that have surfaced said the the luxurious Gulfstream IV jet was full of marijuana smoke to the point where the pilots had to wear their oxygen masks.

In the report, the flight attendant who remains anonymous said Beiber and his father “were extremely abusive verbally and she would not work another flight with them.”

A number of local authorities including the DEA, customs and border agents and police  were there to receive the plane when it landed in Teterboro and reported that there was still marijuana smoke in the cabin. When questioned, Beiber admitted to taking alcohol and smoking marijuana.

Now, here is the irony. Despite Beiber and his friends putting the career of the pilots at risk (pilots had to wear oxygen masks during the flight to avoid inhaling the weed and have their licenses revoked for failing a drug test), they were unwilling to press any charges against them. So they walked  off scott free.

However, karma always has her way. Things had to average out and Beiber paid for his actions when he was turned away from New York City Club 1 Oak and 4 other Superbowl parties. So our question to you is, though many of you are in favor of legalizing cannabis – at least for medical and recreational use, would such a move be a good idea?

Personally, I feel that this case should be treated as an isolated one, however, this is not excusing Beiber’s actions. They were wrong, and should be punished regardless of whether Beiber is a star or not.Do you agree? Share your thoughts and comments below.

Can Cannabis Cure Cancer?

can-cannabis-cure cancerThe evidence so far suggest that “the non-hallucinogenic parts of cannabis are potentially highly effective cancer drugs.”  This is according to a study by the Anticancer Research Institute. So if you thought that doctors and nurses were pulling your leg on this, you are wrong cannabis can cure cancer.

For some time now researchers have been studying the effects of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) on the brain and they are in agreement that this psychoactive ingredient in the cannabis plant contains healing elements that can treat and in some cases cure diseases and conditions once thought incurable.

Dr. Wai Lui of the department of Oncology, Division of Clinical Sciences at the St. George’s University of London explains:

“The cannabinoids examined have minimal, if any, hallucinogenic side effects, and their properties as anti-cancer agents are promising.”

“These agents are able to interfere with the development of cancerous cells, stopping them in their tracks and preventing them from growing. In some cases, by using specific dosage patterns, they can destroy cancer cells on their own.”

Dr. Wai Lui was one of the participating scientists in the study and his remarks are very encouraging. Of course, though THC acts against cancerous cells and kills them, the disadvantage of this psychoactive element is that it is a powerful hallucinogen. With a lot more funds being poured into research of cannabis and society becoming more open to the thought of this herb being used as a healing agent,  Dr Wai Lui and his team have been able to further their research and test a variety of non-hallucinogenic cannabis derived compounds with very positive results especially against blood cancer/leukemia.

This statement from Dr. Lui on the treatment of leukemia with cannabis on St George’s website reads:

“Of six cannabinoids studied, each demonstrated anti-cancer properties as effective as those seen in THC. Importantly, they had an increased effect on cancer cells when combined with each other.”

“This study is a critical step in unpicking the mysteries of cannabis as a source of medicine. The cannabinoids examined have minimal, if any, hallucinogenic side effects, and their properties as anti-cancer agents are promising.”

Now that is it very clear that cannabis can cure cancer, it remains to be seen whether more and more nations around the world will become more open to the legalization of marijuana.

Vaporfection viVape Vaporizer

Vaporfection ViVape Herbal Vaporizervaporfection-vivape-vaporizer

The Vaporfection viVape Vaporizer is an advanced second generation version of the highly acclaimed viVape Vaporizer. Vaporfection made a lot of improvements to this device to guarantee you the cleanest, purest and most flavorful vapor. Some of the major improvements to the viVape Vaporizer include:

  • Improved dual voltage
  • Updates touchscreen
  • Updated heating element
  • International certification
  • New internal heating control

It’s in light of this that I decided to test the viVape Herbal Vaporizer to find out if it is a vaporizer I would recommend. What I really liked about this vaporizer was its enhanced features. The viVape vaporizer has a dual delivery bag and whip method which I found to be a good option especially for people who are starting to get their feet wet with vaporizers and are looking for a good delivery method.

With the bag option, the viVape is capable of filling its balloons with vapor using its internal fan unlike other forced-air vaporizers. This actually makes it very quiet and discreet. The whip option on the other hand will give you a hands free vaporizing experience due to its innovative design. It is made of very flexible medical grade oxygen tubing and ground glass . Both the mouthpiece and the opposite end which holds the blended material are also made of glass.

The new updated and easy to use touchscreen on the viVape will not only allow you to set your temperatures accordingly but it will also let you control the delivery method and length of time you use the vaporizer. Thanks to the new updated heating element, the viVape vaporizer has a quick heat up time of less than 2 minutes. As if that’s not enough, the LED glass heating chamber will glow to alert you once you have reached your desired heating temperature.

Probably the most innovative feature I liked about the viVape was its Vapor Sense technology. Vivape is the first vaporizer to be fitted with this unique feature which uses automatic temperature sensors and a digital microprocessor temperature controller wired to a thermo coupling temperature sensor that will regulate and guarantee you a seamless and exhilarating vaporizing experience.

The glass on glass technology for both the heating element and the heating chamber will also guarantee you the highest quality vapor unlike most vaporizers that use plastics and metals on these components and produce substandard vapor. For its innovative features and performance, the $290 price tag on the viVape is a steal! In terms of performance, The Arizer Extreme Q and the Volcano vaporizer come close however, the viVape performs better because of its glass on glass technology.

Bottom line, I would not hesitate to recommend this vaporizer to anyone. It has a great performance and is quite affordable.  If you are looking for a vaporizer that utilises both bag and whip delivery methods, is easy to use, produces superior quality vapor thanks to its glass on glass feature then the Vaporfection viVape Vaporizer is the right device for you.

Pinnacle Pro Vaporizer-Portable Marijuana Vaporizers

Pinnacle Pro Herbal Vaporizer

 

The Pinnacle Pro Vaporizer by VaporBlunt is a portable marijuana vaporizer. The Pinnacle Pro herbal vaporizer has been out since 2013 and it’s certainly an upgrade from the Pinnacle Classic. The Pinnacle Pro marijuana vaporizer is slim and convenient for a portable marijuana vaporizer. You can easily slip this herbal vaporizer in your pocket, something we’re all looking for in a portable vaporizer.

The Pinnacle Pro Vaporizer runs in the middle of the vaporizer world, not a high quality vaporizer but not a slouch either. VaporBlunt made great improvements when they came out with the Pinnacle Pro. If you owned the Pinnacle Classic, you probably found out that it had a weak heating element compared to other weed vaporizers. The heating chamber is more improved and the Pinnacle Pro Vaporizer features a 5 heating settings. Overall, vaporizing is at a much higher quality then before. This Pinnacle Pro Vaporizer has two built in heat settings – Level 1: 375°F & Level 2: 390°F

I believe one of the best features about the Pinnacle Pro marijuana vaporizer is the fact that you can burn both herbs and oils. Most herbal vaporizers are only able to burn herbs or just oils, not both. The Pinnacle Pro allows you to burn oils and herbs. It’s simple, just drop it in, turn it on and you’re ready to rock-n-roll. Another awesome feature is the heating chamber in the mouthpiece, much easier to vape.

You have to love the size and accessibility of the Pinnacle Pro Vaporizer. You can easily access and store it away. As for portable vaporizers, the Pinnacle Pro Vaporizer is a heavyweight. It has the power to get the job done in a quality manner. For its size, the Pinnacle Pro herbal vaporizer packs a punch. You can also add extra features to the Pinnacle Pro, which is another plus. I also like the design, which is a small upgrade from the Pinnacle classic. I know most of you don’t care about design, but I do. I want my vape to be stylish, I’m stylish. Stylish and powerful, sounds like a win-win.

One of the negatives about the Pinnacle Pro Vaporizer is the battery life. Compared to other herbal vaporizers, it’s at the lower end in battery life. Although this isn’t a big deal, it’s still a concern. Perhaps you’ll always be around a plug in, but if you aren’t, better make sure she’s fully charged before taking off. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not terrible but not as strong as the competition.

Some people believe that the $200+ price tag on the Pinnacle Pro Vaporizer is a little high, but after considering everything, I believe the price tag is more then fair. Again, you have a high powered portable vaporizer. You have the ability to burn both herbs and oil. Now, if you don’t burn both herbs and oil, it could be a different story. If you do burn both, this is a fair price tag for the Pinnacle Pro. In closing, if you’re a fan of the Pinnacle Vaporizer, you should get the upgrade. If you’re looking for a powerful portable vaporizer, this does the job. I get good burn and cooling, no issues there. I would certainly recommend the Pinnacle Pro Vaporizer.

 

miniVap Vaporizer Review

minivap-with-bag

Having heard so much about the miniVap vaporizer, I decided to try it out to see what it’s all about. The miniVap Vaporizer is a new portable vaporizer that is stylish compact and very efficient. Unlike other vaporizers that are made of  weak material, the miniVap vaporizer is built with only the highest-quality materials to guarantee you the highest quality of vapor and the best efficiency.

What I really liked about this vaporizer was its compact design. This vaporizer is not only portable, but it is also very lightweight, easy to use and has been built to last. It feels great and will rest gently in your palm during walks or when you are out and about. Moreover, the heating of material and extraction occurs only when the user inhales. This is done through the innovative heating by demand feature.

This vaporizer is ideal for heating herbs. The front LED will allow you to monitor temperatures and help you avoid burning your material. Essentially, the miniVap’s key function is to extract the key elements from your herb whilst limiting the amount of harmful substances that are emitted.

The miniVap’s performance is superior and can only be compared to the Arizer vaporizer or the Volcano vaporizer. After heating my herbs to 400F, I was able to produce a very clean and flavourful vapor something I found a bit hard to achieve on other portable vaporizers. Moreover, the battery performance is quite good.

Depending on how you use it, the battery power on the miniVap will last you 4-6 hours before you need to recharge. This vaporizer comes with a docking station and accessory kit for replacement of the screen and other components that can get damaged or worn out.

If you are looking for a portable  vaporizer, that is stylish, very efficient and are willing to dig a little deeper into your pockets, you would want to consider getting the miniVap. For the performance and functionality that you will get, the miniVap vaporizeris worth every dollar it costs.

Is there a vaporizer that you would like to know more about, or do you have any burning questions concerning vaporizers? We would love to hear your thoughts and views. So feel free to share them with us through the comments.

Extreme Q Vaporizer

 

It’s no secret that the Arizer Extreme Q Vaporizer has become one of the best herbal vaporizers on the market. The Extreme Q Vaporizer is one of the very few herbal vaporizers to run with the iconic Volcano vaporizer. The Arizer Extreme Q Vaporizer is a high quality vaporizer with an affordable price tag. Smoking with this vaporizer, there’s nothing quite like it. This herbal vaporizer can be used by both veteran and rookie smokers. It has features that are easy to use and convenient.

Arizer’s Extreme Q Vaporizer comes with a quality LCD screen that allows you to adjust the cooking temperature to exactly the temp you want. It comes with a handy remote control that allows you to adjust the settings without getting up. The Extreme Q Vaporizer allows you to smoke from the bag and whip. If you’re not familiar with herbal vaporizers, usually you have to smoke from a tube, mouthpiece or bag. It’s actually a pretty cool feature.

Although the Extreme Q is a top herbal vaporizer, there’s a few issues that I must address. Come to find out, one of its coolest features is actually one of its flaws. The whip gives you a whole new vapor experience but the resin build up from the whip can become an issue. f you vapor from the whip, you’re going to have to keep it clean. This is nor a big issue, but it’s still an inconvenience.

Volcano Vaporizer

 

In terms of herbal vaporizers, it doesn’t come anymore iconic then the Volcano Vaporizer. When it comes to features and quality in a vape, the famous Volcano Vaporizer ranks supreme. The Volcano Vaporizer is considered to be the best herbal vaporizer on the market and has been for years. The Volcano is a leading high quality brand in the vapor world and there’s several different variations and types. When it comes to features, the Volcano Vaporizer has several.

The Volcano Vaporizer is very easy to use and many people consider it to be one of the best tasting vapes on the market. The Volcano does give off a great taste and I must admit, this vaporizer impressed me. Another big complaint that I’ve experienced is vapes burning my weed. The next thing you know, your buds are all burnt up and you’re pissed. You don’t see this with the Volcano Vaporizer. When it comes to the best herbal vaporizers, the Volcano doesn’t disappoint.

The only downfall to this herbal vaporizer is the price. I know for a fact that I’m not the only one. However, if you want a high quality herbal vaporizer, it’s worth every penny. If you’re new to vapes, you want a quality vaporizer that isn’t burning your marijuana up. The price tag may be hefty but quality is very important to a herbal vaporizer. I have yet to see a vaporizer review that says otherwise.

Both the Extreme Q Vaporizer and Volcano Vaporizer are among the best herbal vaporizers in the world. Both vaporizers are high quality and have great features. I would recommend either one. If you can afford it, why not both?

 

DEA Agent Joins Lucrative Legal Marijuana Industry

latest-marijuana-news

Ever since Colorado legalized marijuana for recreational use, there has been a lot of interesting stories making the rounds. Everyone from the president to the average Joe on the street have been quick to give their two cents on the whole issue.

With the pot industry exploding,  a lot of people are looking at cashing in on the windfall. Believe it or not, the marijuana industry has now snared the very people who were strongly against it. Just this week word broke out that former DEA agent Patrick Moen who quit his post last year has now been recruited by a private equity firm that specializes in acquiring businesses in the marijuana industry. Surprisingly, Moen not only has a law degree, but also a strong background in law enforcement. He was once a police office in New York City

Moen becomes the second DEA agent after Paul Schmidt one of the highest ranking DEA agents in Oregon did the unthinkable by joining the marijuana industry. Of course,  a lot of people especially Moen’s colleagues are not happy with his switch. He however, maintains that his move was basically due to the fact that he was seeking a new challenge.

“There was no Aha moment,” Moen said when interviewed by the Seattle Times. “I had been contemplating career moves, looking for new challenges. It was partly a reflection of the general dysfunction of the federal government. Gridlock in D.C. has trickled down to affect every employee. It hurts morale. I’ll leave it at that.”

When asked why he left the DEA an agency he had at one time in his career characterized as the cream of the crop, Moen said that he realized that targeting marijuana was not an effective use of federal resources. How about that.

Schimdt on the other hand said that he saw marijuana as the least of the evils when compared to other drugs like heroin, meth and cocaine.

In fact in an interview with the Oregonian, he revealed the irony behind his move. “A lot of people say, “How could you be so against it on Monday then on Tuesday, you are all for it ?” he said. The truth is, as more and more information becomes readily available concerning the uses of marijuana, a lot of people’s resistance to the herb will start to decrease.

So far, we have seen the President speak on marijuana and the NFL Commissioner positively comment on the whole cannabis debate. The question, is the world ready to legalize marijuana?

How Does Marijuana Affect The Brain?

marijuana-brain-effects© Ars Electronica

Since the recreational use of marijuana became legal in the state of Colorado, one of the most frequently asked questions I get is “How does marijuana affect the brain?“.

To begin, it is important to understand how the brain processes THC.  Typically, after inhaling cannabis smoke or vapor, the chemical properties in the smoke/vapor are dispersed throughout your body.

THC the psychoactive element in the vapor/smoke will immediately reach your brain and begin to work. This explains why a simple puff can get you high. Most users describe this commencing feeling as relaxing and mellow which produces a feeling of obscurity and light headedness. Afterwards, feelings of paranoia and panic might be felt by the user. The interaction of THC and your brain is the major cause of these feelings.

Now that you know how your brain processes THC, you need to know which parts of your brain are affected by THC to have a clear understanding of its effects. The major things to know are:

  • Neurons-the cells that process information in the brain
  • The path on which these cells communicate is the neurotransmitters
  • Alien chemicals like THC can block actions of the neurotransmitters

Your brain’s functions depend on the effective interplay of the neurotransmitters whose major job it is to carry information between the cells.

THC or tetrahydrocannabinol will combine with the brain proteins referred to as the cannabinoid receptors in the brain. These proteins exist in large volumes in key areas of the brain where learning, pain perception, memory and reward processing occur.

So how will marijuana affect these areas of your brain? The truth is, you will need an experts opinion on this, however, what I can tell you is this, excessive use of cannabis during adolescents can generate lasting processes in your brain function especially in people who are at a greater risk of getting mental disorders.

Science has now proven that the continual use of cannabis especially during teen years can increase the risk of psychosis, decrease adulthood IQ amongst other problems.

Though it will take some time for marijuana to be accepted as an alternative treatment to chronic conditions, a lot is being done to educate the public on the positive aspect of this herb.

If you have any opinions or questions on how marijuana affects the brain, feel free to put them in the comments below and I will get back to you.

 

 

Obama On Marijuana Use

Obama On Marijuana Use

barack© gllorensb

President Obama has finally been dragged into the marijuana debate. In an interview with the New Yorker Magazine, Obama not only confirmed his use of marijuana as a kid, but he also made a rather startling remark.

According to the president marijuana is no more dangerous than alcohol. He could not have said it better.

“As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol,” the president said.

President Obama however made it clear that smoking marijuana is not something he encourages.

“Smoking marijuana is not something I encourage, and I’ve told my daughters I think it’s a bad idea, a waste of time, not very healthy,”  Obama said.

If you have been reading my posts these past couple of days, you will notice that we have taken a slightly different approach with our content.

Not only are we focusing on vaporizers and everything related to it, we have also been taking the time to demystify some of the common myths surrounding cannabis, hemp, CBD and THC.

So why do I say Obama is right in his comparison of alcohol and marijuana? As you know by now, there is a lot more to Cannabis than just the blissful high feeling you get. Cannabis actually has healing properties and is used to treat chronic illnesses and conditions. I actually did a post on CBD as a cure for seizures and other illnesses.

So will the president’s remarks determine how quickly the medical and recreational use marijuana laws get passed in other states still debating the issue? I don’t see how. However, it does give an idea on the kind of If the president does give an idea of how open this subject has become.

Of course, a lot of opponents of this law did not like what the president had to say. Many question whether the new laws will raise concerns about public health and whether the easy availability of this drug would leas to more under age use and increase in the levels of crime.

Marijuana and Hemp – What’s the difference?

medical-marijuana-oil©morgan200

There is a lot of confusion surrounding marijuana and hemp and their benefits and I thought it best to shed some light on what these two herbs are. Both marijuana and hemp are forms/subspecies of the cannabis plant. They both contain essential elements (cannabinoids) found in the cannabis plant. The most popular of these cannabinoids is tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. Marijuana however, contains a higher THC and cannabinoid content than hemp.  Now that you know about these two varieties of the cannabis plant, it is best if I explain the difference between medical marijuana oil and hemp seed oil. Medical marijuana oil is also known as hemp oil. Hemp seed oil on the other hand is the oil that is released when seeds of the hemp plant are pressed together. Hemp seed oil is abundant in fatty oils that contain essential elements beneficial to your body. Hemp seed oil is easily accessible and can be purchased from health food stores. It’s easy to confuse hemp seed oil and hemp oil as most stores don’t differentiate on their labels. That said it is important to remember that medical marijuana or the real hemp oil is made from the buds of the female marijuana plant and it contains THC and cannabinoids that have essential healing properties. Its worth remembering that medical marijuana is also referred to as hemp oil, cannabis oil or hash oil just so you don’t get confused.

So what are the benefits of hemp oil/ medical marijuana oil?

Before I let you know about the benefits of hemp oil, here are a few things to ponder over:

  • Prescription drugs kill about 100,000 people in the world
  • There are no known recorded cases of death arising from cannabis use
  • Over ingestion of cannabis can actually save your life rather end it
  • Medical marijuana actually treats conditions that conventional medicine doesn’t

Pretty amazing don’t you think. The major benefit however is the enormous health conditions hemp oil is able to treat. Alzhemiers, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, depression, hepatitis c, cancer, AIDS and morning sickness are just a few of the diseases and conditions medical marijuana can treat. So as the debate rages on we would like to ask for your opinion on the continued legalization of medical marijuana across the nation. Do you think it is a good move?

Zephyr Ion Vaporizer Review

zephyr-ion-vaporizer

The Zephyr Ion Vaporizer is one of the latest entrants into the market and has been causing such a huge storm that we had to see for ourselves if it was worth all the hype. This herbal vaporizer is actually a new and improved version of the first Zephyr Ion which entered the market in 2009.

Understanding vaporizer is not as easy as many people think. You have to take the time to seriously analyze to judge whether it is a good vaporizer or not. I spent 7 days with Zephyr Ion and arrived at a few conclusions that I would like to share with you.

The truth is, when I first got my hands on this herbal vaporizer, I was more than impressed. It’s unique features really sets it apart and was among the first things I noticed. It has an eye catching stainless steel design that gives it a stylish look and a ceramic fully enclosed ceramic heating element with 32 heat and air channels for separation of airflow from the heating coils. Not only is this feature not available in other vaporizers, but it will also guarantees efficient heating that will ensure you only get the active ingredients of the material you are vaporizing.

Of course, the design is only one of the stand out features of the Zephyr Ion, this marijuana vaporizer also has a USB port that will allow you to connect it to a computer and allow you to install the latest versions of the Zephyr firmware, record message amongst other cool things. The software however is still in beta testing and is scheduled to be released later on this year.

Zephyr Ion Performance

The Zephyr Ion is very easy to use. Once plugged in, the digital display will grow red signalling that the device is ready to be used. Push the on button and set your preferred temperature using the + and – signs. The light will automatically change to green once the optimum temperature has been reached and you can then begin enjoying your material.

The vapor I got was extremely top quality. It was flavorful, tasty, clean and very rich.  So what didn’t I like about this vaporizer? Well, I found the loading, bagging, sucking and redoing a little bit cumbersome but other than that, it is a pretty decent vaporizer. In fact personally, the Zephyr Ion Vaporizer can give the Arizer Extreme Q and the Volcano Vaporizer some very good competition.

Would I recommend the Zephyr Ion Vaporizer? You bet! If you would like to use this vaporizer for medical purposes or you are a moderate vaper looking for an affordable vaporizer, this vaporizer is definitely a good choice.

Marijuana For NFL USE?

mrijuana-for-nfl-use© Football Ivan

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is the latest public personality to add his voice to the ongoing cannabis legalization debate. Ever since the controversial cannabis law allowing the recreational use of the herb came into effect on January 1st in the state of Colorado, a lot of hype has surrounded the topic with many people the world over still coming to terms with the shocking news and now marijuana for NFL use is looking more like a reality.

Though it is legal to buy cannabis in some states, smoking marijuana is illegal under the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement. Wanting to get Goodell’s take on the whole matter, ESPN asked whether a time will come when players will be allowed to use medical marijuana is states where it is legal. This is what he said:

“I don’t know what’s going to develop as far as the next opportunity for medicine to evolve and to help either deal with pain or help deal with injuries, but we will continue to support the evolution of medicine”.

His remarks come in the wake of more and more states laying the ground for legalizing the use of medical marijuana. So far, two states Colorado and Washington allow recreational use of marijuana with Alaska close to becoming the third. Twenty one other states including: Arizona, New Mexico, California, Oregon, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland, Delaware and New York allow the use of medical marijuana,

The question is, “Will the sports world embrace medical marijuana?” The truth is, the benefits for medical marijuana are enormous especially for sports like football and soccer where breaking bones is part of the game. In these sports the pain that is endured by players is unimaginable. Former Denver Broncos tight end Nate Jackson knows the pain all too well and his vivid description can be reason enough for the sport to start using medical marijuana.

“You never live pain-free in the [National Football League],” Jackson was once quoted as saying. “You don’t discuss it. But you manage pain on a daily basis. Every morning there’s this moment – especially when you wake up in training camp — when you’re like, what the f— am I doing? How am I going to make it through this practice? Even getting out of bed is hard. How you deal with it is your own personal thing.”

With Goodell’s recent comments it seems like pain will be a thing of the past for most players – at least in states where the use of medical marijuana is legal. That said, do you think marijuana for NFL use is okay and more importantly, where do you draw the line between medical marijuana use and recreational use?
