Thumbs up New Hampshire House passes recreational marijuana bill

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) New Hampshire's House has given preliminary approval to legalizing up to 1 ounce of marijuana for recreational use for anyone age 21 and older.

The House voted 170-162 Wednesday to send the bill to its tax committee. The bill proposes taxing the drug when it is sold at retail at a rate of $30 per ounce and letting people grow up to six marijuana plants in a controlled environment.

Supporters said the bill was modeled after one approved by Colorado voters last year and is similar to one Washington voters passed. They said New Hampshire could receive $30 million in tax revenue.

It's happening.

I mean everyone knew it was inevitable, anyway.

Should all those things be banned? And if not, what criteria should be used to decide?

Point is people are being told that marijuana has no negatives to it. The George Soros money spreading the lie that marijuana is safe, and natural. But tobacco is also natural. Some leap as well to saying it should be banned. Where have I ever posted that here? Duh.

Our brains create chemicals! Should we lock our brains in prison for doing these things?

September 15, 2004 Mother Nature created a way to "tune in, turn on" long before pot-smokers rolled their first joint, Stanford scientists have found.

Eavesdropping on the conversations between brain cells, the research team found that neurons make their own marijuana-like chemicals called cannabinoids, which indirectly alter the way that information is received and filtered.

When the chemicals are released, "neurons have a harder time deciding which are the relevant things to pay attention to," said investigator John R. Huguenard, associate professor of neurology and neurologic sciences at Stanford University School of Medicine.

For a long time, scientists thought that marijuana altered the mind in a messy and random way that didn't involve any particular part of brain chemistry.

Now they've identified an elegant modus operandi. It adds to a growing body of research that explains the mechanism behind getting "high." Marijuana mimics the cannabinoids made naturally by our brain - chemicals that influence a smorgasbord of body functions including movement, thought and perception.

The research sheds light on a powerful neurochemical system. Researchers hope that when they understand the job the chemical does in the day-to-day running of our bodies, they can design new therapeutic drugs.

In their Stanford lab, Huguenard and colleagues David Prince and Alberto Bacci injected electric current into rat brain cells, then watched the chatter between the brain's two major types of cells.
