    Marijuana, Botanical name: Cannabis sativa ANSWERS

    in Health

    Marijuana is a green, brown or gray mixture of dried, shredded leaves, stems, seeds and flowers of the hemp plant Cannabis sativa. Marijuana is used as a psychoactive (i.e. mind altering) recreational drug, for certain medical ailments and for religious and spiritual purposes. Sinsemilla, hash/hashish (resinous form) and hash oil (sticky black liquid) are stronger forms of marijuana.   Do you think that those who want to make it legal are doing a favor for you, or, would you like to understand how those who want it legalized are going to be contributing to the increase in harsher drug edictions?

    in Science

    This program is presented for informational purposes only. We do not advocate illegal activities. We do believe in the right of the individual to have free access to information and ideas. We strongly recommend that the reader learn about applicable local, federal  and global laws regarding possession, sale, and purchase of any psychoactives they intend to purchase, possess or use.
    Cannabis is a leafy plant which grows wild in many of the tropical and temperate areas of the world. It is cultivated both indoors and outdoors for the production of its flowering tops. The most commonly used form of cannabis are the leaves and flowering tops (buds) which may be either smoked or eaten; It also comes in a more concentrated resinous form called hashish, and as a sticky black liquid called hash oil. There are three or four distinct species of cannabis: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, Cannabis afghanica and Cannabis ruderalis, though there is some argument as to whether these should be considered varieties rather than species. Most recreationally used cannabis is the result of interbreeding between these three types. The term 'hemp' is generally used to describe low-thc varieties of cannabis which are grown for industrial uses.

    US DOSSIER ON KENYA DRUG LORDS

    in Social Networking

    A report prepared by the US Department of State details drug trafficking and money laundering activities in Kenya.
    The report could have formed the basis for the banning of five Kenyans from visiting the United States.

    The report seen by the Nation says Kenya is not only a significant transit country for cocaine, heroin and hashish, but also a money-laundering hub.

    “Quantities of heroin and hashish transiting in Kenya, mostly from Southwest Asia bound for Europe and United States have markedly increased in recent years,” the report adds.

    The International Narcotics Strategy Report, that reviewed 2009 drug trafficking and money laundering in Kenya, blames lack of resources and rampant corruption for the two vices.

    Kenya’s financial system, the report adds, may be laundering more than Sh80 billion ($100 million) each year, including an undetermined amount of drug money and Somali piracy earnings.

    It indicates that money laundering continues unabated, despite Parliament passing the Proceeds of Crime and Anti-Money Laundering Law, 2009, which was signed by President Kibaki on December 31, 2009.

    However, the law has not come into force because the Ministry of Finance has not gazetted its commencement date although the Act indicates that such date shall not exceed six months after the date of assent.

    The failure by the government to gazette the commencement date of the law comes at a time when there is a tug-of-war over the reopening of Charterhouse Bank, which was closed by the government following allegations of money-laundering.

    US ambassador Michael Ranneberger has opposed reopening of the bank, saying that more than Sh60 billion was lost through financial malpractices.

    There is growing concern that there is no real medical treatment avaialble for the masses of people seeking help. At the same time there are challenges to misinformation regarding it's usage and effects as a drug.
    Granting Agency: National Institutes of Health
    Purpose: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health, solicits new or competing renewal Research Project Grant (R01) applications from institutions/ organizations that propose to conduct preclinical and clinical research directed towards the identification, evaluation and development of safe and effective medications for the treatment of Cannabis Related Disorders (CRDs) and their medical and psychiatric consequences. They include the Cannabis Use Disorders (CUDs) such cannabis abuse and dependence, the Cannabis Induced Disorders (CIDs) such as intoxication, psychosis, and anxiety, as well as the comorbidity of these disorders with other medical and psychiatric disorders (e.g., depression). Cannabis use includes marijuana, hashish, and other tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) containing substances. NIDA is encouraging research in this area because there is a high prevalence of marijuana use in the general population accompanied with an increasing misperception that its use poses low health risk, there is limited research in this area, and there are no effective pharmacological treatments available for these disorders.

We invite forward thinkers, entrepreneurs and solutions oriented talkers to engage in meaningful problem solving.
    GRANT OPPORTUNITY
    Purpose. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to issue a Request for Applications (RFA) to support research studies that focus on the identification, and preclinical and clinical evaluation, of medications that can be safe and effective for the treatment of cannabis-use and -induced disorders, as well as their medical and psychiatric consequences. The studies can be preclinical or FDA-defined Phase I, Phase II or Phase III clinical trials.
    Cannabis-related disorders (CRDs) including cannabis abuse or dependence and cannabis induced disorders (e.g., intoxication, delirium, psychotic disorder, and anxiety disorder) are a major public health issue. Cannabis use includes, marijuana hashish, and other tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) containing substances.
    Nearly one million people are seeking treatment for marijuana dependence every year and sufficient research has been carried out to confirm that the use of cannabis can produce serious physical and psychological consequences.

Only recently have clinical trials been conducted testing medications to treat these disorders.
    Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. It is anticipated that a total of 6 awards will be funded for a total of $3,000,000.
