Plain Jane Hemp Cigarettes

The other day I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and say a sponsored ad for CBD hemp cigarettes. I thought wow this is cool. Must be legal now because of the farm bill that passed.

So I ordered a back of 8 for the discounted prices of 10.99 USD. The pack comes with matches and a striker on the bottom of the pack.

It took about 3-5 days for them to arrive.

When they did I lit one up and tried it. Didn’t taste like anything really. I noticed a small anxiety changed from it.

I did notice that the website says each hemp cigarette is 50mg CBD but the package said each one was 60mg CBD. Could just be a typo.

All in all good product. Would buy again at the discounted price of 10.99 USD.

Farm bill

On May 18th, 2018 the $867 billion farm bill failed in the House of Representatives with a vote of 198 yea to 213 nay. All Democrats and 30 Republicans voted against the measure.

The bill “largely continues current farm and nutrition policy”, and does not include new requirements for SNAP (food stamps) recipients. Incorporating some of the text of the Hemp Farming Act of 2018, the farm bill descheduled some cannabis products from the Controlled Substances Act for the first time. One estimate put the U.S. CBD market at $2.3 billion to $23 billion by the 2020s, enabled by the 2018 farm bill. U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell was such a proponent of the hemp provision that American Military News reported that McConnell coined the hashtag #HempFarmBill

Additional revenue to farmers and processors is expected from textiles and other hemp products. The Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act of 2018 was passed as part of the bill.

Casualties of the Drug War

How many people do you know that have been arrested for drugs? I bet you or someone rather close to you has at least been hassled with by police over a small amount of cannabis. If you were born into a legal state ask your parents. Im sure they have a story or two for you.

These non violent drug offenses clog up our legal system. They disrupt and often ruin the lives of the offender. There are many times a person who is convicted of a low level drug offense will have to wait seven or more years for a expungement to even be heard.

When you’re convicted of a drug felony or any felony for that matter, all your rights are stripped from you. You can no longer own a firearm. You can no longer vote. In some states won’t let felons hold public office. On top of having your rights removed. Now when you are filling out a job application or a apartment application you either have to lie when they ask ‘have you ever been convicted of a felony’ or you have to check ‘yes’ and almost certainly be denied.

Lastly, you have probation or jail costs. The court might have even fined you.

None of this is helping rehabilitate the person. This only makes their life more difficult then it already was. We need to find a way to fix this broken system.

#NoSmokeIsAJoke

Since medical cannabis passed in Florida in 2016 raw flower has been unavailable and illegal to have even by a registered medical marijuana patient. Now isn’t that just funny. The state says “you can use cannabis for medicine but the way we want you too” .

What is noticeable about medical cannabis in Florida is that the state wants all the money. Yes you read that right, they want it all. They will say “its for the public safety”. If that were true California, Colorado, Washington State, and even the District of Colombia would be in chaos. Thats right, our nations capital has the full spectrum of cannabis products….for adult use. From flower to isolates and there has been no danger to the public like the Florida government would like you to believe. This means the only reason that they want to regulate it so tight is so they can ever single penny.

Fortunately, we have a big fish backing flower in Morgan & Morgan. There has been a court date set of Jan. 8 for his #NoSmokeIsAJoke campaign. We can only hope that the judges of the great state of Florida will up hold what the people of Florida voted for.
