Who got D.A. Funk Hashville got D.A.Funk
The district attorney in Nashville has demanded that low-level cannabis crimes no longer be treated as crimes because it is unfair how cannabis prohibition statutes are disproportionately and often selectively enforced
Nashville DA to stop prosecuting minor marijuana possession offenses immediately
Nashville’s District Attorney’s office will no longer prosecute marijuana possession charges for less than half an ounce.
District Attorney General Glenn Funk announced the change Wednesday, effective immediately.
"Marijuana charges do little to promote public health, and even less to promote public safety," the DA's office said in a statement.
"It's incumbent upon all of us in the criminal justice arena to look for ways to make sure the system is fair, and this seems to me a pretty obvious policy change that needed to happen. We all need to be introspective about our policies and procedures," Funk said in an interview.
Cannabis and hemp are more than patriotic there how the country was founded and the reason why people came to the continent hampers used earlier and everything from clothing to sales and Rob covered the wagons it was the food for the livestock truly an amazing plant
Hemp was used to create the first two drafts of the Declaration of Independence, as well as the first American flag made by Betsy Ross
Cannabis is as American as apple pie and baseball.
No matter what people think or say about marijuana, it’s hard to deny that the herb has helped shape American culture and history. Don’t believe it? This Fourth of July holiday weekend, we give you 7 reasons marijuana is patriotic af . Happy Hemp Day!
- Farmers Required To Grow Hemp
Back before independence, this country relied heavily on cannabis — not the psychoactive drug we smoke today, but industrial hemp.
Regional governments encouraged farmers to grow hemp in the 17th century for the production of rope, sails, clothing and other textile products.
In 1619, the Virginia Assembly passed legislation requiring every farmer in the state to grow hemp.
If citizens did not have paper money, hemp was accepted as legal tender in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Maryland.
- The Founding Fathers Grew Hemp
George Washington and Thomas Jefferson grew hemp. Washington grew hemp on his plantation in Mount Vernon, Va., and Jefferson on his estate in Monticello, Va. Both Washington and Jefferson wrote often about the glories of the crop. Washington’s diaries indicate that hemp was cultivated at all his five farms.
- The Declaration Of Independence And Hemp
No, the actual document declaring our independence from Great Britain was NOT printed on hemp paper. The historical document was printed on parchment made of animal skin, which was the common at the time.
However, the first two drafts of the Declaration of Independence were written on hemp paper. The first draft was written on Dutch hemp paper on June 28, 1776. The second draft was written on hemp paper on July 2, 1776.
- Betsy Ross, The American Flag And Hemp
The first American flag made by Betsy Ross was made from industrial hemp, according to some experts. Of course, there is still a lively debate on whether Ross even made the original flag.
“Many of the very first American flags were made from hemp cloths. So there’s a real tie in to our country’s history and the important rule industrial hemp played in agriculture in our country,” said Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo.
In 2013, hemp flag was flown over the Capitol for the first time in more than 80 years on July 4. Former DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart, an ardent anti-marijuana drug warrior, said the lowest point in her 33-year career at the agency was when she learned they’d flown a hemp flag over the Capitol on July 4.
- Hemp For Victory!
In 1942, the U.S. Department of Agriculture produced an informational film called “Hemp for Victory.” The movie, which was seen by most farmers during the height of World War II, extolled the virtues of the industrial hemp crop, detailed its history, showcased its myriad of uses and provided tips and methods for growing it.
- Hemp Saved A President’s Life
In Jack Herer’s seminal book “The Emperor Wears No Clothes,” he writes: When the young pilot George Bush bailed out of his burning airplane after a battle over the Pacific, little did he know:
Parts of his aircraft engine were lubricated with cannabis hemp seed oil.
100% of his life-saving parachute webbing was made from U.S. grown cannabis hemp.
Virtually all the rigging and ropes of the ship that pulled him in were made of cannabis hemp.
The fire hoses on the ship (as were those in the schools he had attended) were woven from cannabis hemp.
Finally, as young George Bush stood safely on the deck, his shoes’ durable stitching was of cannabis hemp, as it is in all good leather and military shoes to this day.
- Hemp Saves The Lives Of Those Who Served Our Great Nation
As we send our young men and women overseas to fight for our national interests, more and more of them are suffering not from bullets, but from post-traumatic stress disorder. An estimated 8,000 veteran commit suicide a year — that’s 22 a day.
A number of studies show cannabis users helpful to humans because it supports the Endo cannabinoid system which directly results and somebody having a week or healthy immune system and therefore more or less able to fight off diseases and viruses and sickness, maybe Kyle Turley is owed an apology
If you’re someone who struggles with an autoimmune disease or a hyperactive immune system, CBD could be a helpful option.
Like most things cannabis, the endocannabinoid system is not wholly understood. Data shows that CBD and other properties of cannabis have anti-inflammatory properties, acting as an immunosuppressant and an immunomodulator. These are very technical terms that basically mean that CBD suppresses the functions of your body’s immune system and keeps it active when underperforming.
Cannabinoid-induced apoptosis in immune cells as a pathway to immunosuppression
Endocannabinoids have emerged as versatile modulators of synaptic transmission and can act as retrograde neurotransmitters. As they cannot be stored in synaptic vesicles, endocannabinoid signalling is believed to start “on-demand”, via a stimulus-dependent synthesis from membranous precursors at the postsynaptic site. After synthesis, endocannabinoids bind presynaptically to cannabinoid type 1 receptors (CB1Rs), leading to a short- or long-term suppression of neurotransmitter release. CB1Rs are present in a plethora of different synaptic connections in the brain. Electrophysiological and behavioral analyses of mutant mice lacking CB1Rs, and of pharmacologically treated rodents with CB1R antagonists, have established multiple functions of endocannabinoids as modulators of memory processing
Those snitches at weedmaps get low (as per usual)
…just another person, on along list, that they need to apologize to.
