Anxiety is a state of being uncertain which results in a real or imagined event or situation. When we get anxious, the body releases a stress response, which causes a number of psychological and emotional changes. In other words, when we over-think a situation, our bodies make it worse and make us anxious. Anybody whom suffers from anxiety knows what it is like to be trapped inside of your own mind with no escape route in sight. It’s almost like your mind is a coffin and you are being buried alive, soon it gets hard to breathe, everything goes dark and fades out. Anxiety disorder is very common and effects more than 40 million American adults. Anxiety can become so much that it depletes your normal life and relationships. Panic and anxiety disorders go hand in hand, having extreme anxiety can cause panic. Continue reading “AnXiEtY”
From my own person experiences and what I have found through validated research, it takes at least six months or more to actually know somebody – but even then you still can never be completely sure about anybody. It takes time to know what makes to people click, to know the little quirks about your partner, to know the simplest things such as their favorite food, favorite color, or favorite animal. You wouldn’t just move in with somebody you just met, not knowing anything about them, right? You want to know if they have a stable foundation and if they are able to help support you and the foundation you two stand on, especially if children are involved.

With the new year ringing in and bringing a storm of new opportunities and adventures, history is also changing.
Three states have accepted the recreational use of marijuana since he ballot passed in 2016. In 2015 a new ballot came about and five more states had the option to reconize the use of recreational marijuana. Those five ballots passed after so many weed activists fought for it and more profound medical testing proved the benefits of cannabis. Massachusetts, Arizona, Maine, California, and Nevada are now on the list of states where recreational pot is acceptable.
All marijuana laws vary by state, some you can smoke pubicly, and some you cannot. Some states you can walk into any dispensary and buy any amount, and in other states you can’t and you are regulated on how much you can purchase.
I reside in Nevada, so I am going to share what I learned about Nevada’s marijuana laws, and I will get into the other states and regulations at another time.
Since new laws for the world are in place starting today, the one almost everybody has the most questions about is the pot. In Nevada, if you are over the legal age of 21, of if you are 18 and older with a legal Nevada medical marijuana card, you are en able to legally blaze up.
Persons of the legal age can purchase up to 1oz of buds or an eighth of an ounce of concentrates. Persons 18 an nd older with a Nevada medical marijuana card can purchace up to 2.5 ounces of anything marijuana including flowers, edibles, creams, etc. Here is the catch, you will only be able to purchase these amouts over a two week period. you can mix up your Ounce with anything. For example, if you go and buy three 250 milligram brownies, you will be able to prchase the remainder of the weight in herb or concentrates. The purchases that you make are monitored and tracked on a live feed daily to prevent people from purchasig over their legal limit. The number of dispensaries to open to the public for recreational use varies by the counties here in Nevada. Clark County is a much wider county and can house up to 80 dispensaries. Washoe County could house 4, and 2 in the other remaining more rural and smaller counties (14 in total). The areas that have a larger population will have the most dispensaries.
The laws of Nevada NRS CHAPTER 435A states that cannabis is to be consumed privately, meaning in your own home and on your personal property, although smoking weed in your car is still illegal and is a misdomeanor and punishable by up to 6months in county. it is also illegal to smoke in the pubic or on any federal lands, such as schools and the post office. Nevada is overrun by casions, and while the casions may allow the use of tobacco, they still do not reconize marijuana due to the federal law regulations. If you are caught violating any of the consumption laws, it is a misdomeanor and could have you locked down for up to 6 months or a fine up to $1,000, or in the worst case scenario you could be slammed with both jail time and fees. In some cases, the ruling judge may accept a sentence of community service in lieu of the jail time and or fines. Driving whil stoned is also illegal (or sitting in the car while smoking) and is punishable by law. The officers can determine if you are under the influence of marijuana by doing one of 3 tests, urine test, blood test, or a field sobriety test. If you get pulled over and the officer does a test on you, you are considered “hgh” if:
The blood test comes back with 2 nannograms of marijuana per Ml of blood; The urine test comes back with at least 10 nanograms or more of marijuana per mL of urine
Just like the regulations with smoking in public, most cases can be contested in court when it comes to failing a marijuana sobriety test during a traffic stop. It is illegal to trasport marijuana across state lines, even if the next state over reconizes the use of marijuana. When driving within county lines with your weed, it must be in a sealed container and away from the driver’s reach and any minors that may be in the vehicle. Failure to follow these regulations can get you an “open container” charge. Minors in the state of nevada (anyone under 18) are able to use and acacess marijuana, as long as they have a valid Nevada medical marijuana card. Growing the beautiful plant is banned anywhere that is within a 25 mile radius of a dispensary.
So, as it is legal per-say to consume weed in Nevada, there are still rules and regulations that are in place and need to be followed so we can continue to have our freedom. With the new year comes many new exciting things, Nevada being on the list of sates to accept marijuana use recreationally, is just the tip of the iceberg.
This is the most personal blog that I have written thus far into my journey. The last few months have been very rough for me and life is just extremely tough and stressful, being an adult is nothing that I thought it would be! This post is going to be about the use of marijuana to combat chronic depression and anxiety, but instead of throwing all facts from the internet and wherever, this is my personal story, so here goes… Continue reading “Pot For Depression”
Every smoker has their favorite time they like to light up. Here are a few ideas, of you haven’t tried them yet, I highly suggest you do!
The wake and bake. Lighting up right after you wake up, whether it be in the morning aor after a nap, it it’s one of the best times to smoke. Now here is the catch, if you are a true smoker you obviously know the difference between sativa and indica plants. For a wake and bake, a sativa strain is the best option. Sativa gives more of an uplifting and energetic effect, perfect for waking up. So grab that cup of coffee and roll up your favorite sativa blend and enjoy your next morning, it will become a ritual!
Smoking in a hot shower or bath. A hot shower in itself will make anybody feel relaxed, and depending on the mood and the time of day, smoking in the shower can have many positive benefits. If you choose to smoke in a nice hot shower in the morning to jump start your day, try a nice sativa bud such as blue dream. If you choose night time before bed, try a relaxing indica bud to help you sleep at night.
Blazing after sexual intercourse. Smoking after some good sex can have an extremely euphoric feeling. Feeling full of relaxation and in a sedated state, it will have anybody feeling ready for a hard nights sleep. The best bud in my opinion to smoke on after intercourse is anot indica, due to the relaxed state indica leaves you in. Some good strains to try are Hindu Kush, Skywalker, or LA Condidential.
Here in Nevada, its not a ‘white Christmas’ but more of a rain and wet Christmas!
So where are you from? What is the weather like there? As much as I hate the cold, I would much rather be sitting in the mountains of Colorado, smoking a J, watching the snow fall… Ahhh sounds enticing, right!? Continue reading “Christmas Thoughts”
