Melvin McDonald is a former judge and US Attorney under President Reagan. And now, he is a surprisingly outspoken supporter of medical marijuana.
McDonald stated: “I was a leader in the drug wars in the 1980’s…I’d been appointed by President Reagan as the US Attorney. Our number one priority in Arizona was drugs and we battled drugs all the years I was US Attorney.”
Since then McDonald has had a change of heart towards marijuana used for medical purposes. It all started when McDonald’s son’s brain was injured in an accident and left him with epilepsy. McDonald’s son takes epilepsy medication that causes nausea. The only thing that helps with the nausea is medical marijuana.
Medical marijuana is beginning to receive the support it deserves.

Billy Ray Cyrus said it best in his song, “All gave some and some gave all and some stood through for the red, white and blue and some had to fall, and if you ever think of me, think of all your liberties and recall, some gave all.”
No one deserves more of our liberties and your respect than our veterans. Generation after generation of brave souls laid their lives on the line so you and I can enjoy liberty, prosperity and the privilege to pursue happiness.
We honor those who laid their lives down for us every time we vote, enjoy liberty or exercise our responsibility to care for the wounded, the orphans and the widows. There’s an old saying, “If you won’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.” Don’t you think it’s time we all make a stand for Veterans for Medical Cannabis Access (VMCA), and don’t fall for marijuana prohibition again? We’ve come too far to take our liberties lightly. There is not a better time for you to get involved and help promote this precious American liberty.
Veterans for Medical Cannabis Access (VMCA) fight for veteran’s rights to access medical marijuana for therapeutic purposes, and is working to end all prohibitions associated with such use. VMCA is working to preserve and protect the long established doctor-patient relationship including the ability to safely discuss medical cannabis use within the V.A. healthcare system without fear of punishment or retribution.
In 2012 the VMCA has petitioned the president to legalize medical marijuana access and help victims of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and also to protect many veterans who lose their Veterans Affairs Department “medical coverage,” if they get caught medicating with cannabis.
The irony is 17 states and even the District of Columbia allow marijuana use for medicinal purposes, but it remains illegal under federal law. The president and his administration elected to ignore the overwhelming scientific evidence proving cannabis is a safe and beneficial medicinal herb.
The fight goes on, government protected medicine (Big Pharma) gives Washington billions of dollars to keep cannabis from veterans, the very people who made it possible for these same corrupt politicians to get rich from the medical lobbyists in the first place. Get more involved, whether or not you are a veteran or a medical marijuana user; help us persuade the American Medical Association (AMA) to Reschedule Marijuana @ http://www.veteransformedicalmarijuana.org/ and help make freedom legal for everyone!
A bong is simply a tube, usually at least 1 to 3 inch diameter sealed at the bottom. It could be made of bamboo, acrylic, metal, wood or glass, it doesn’t really matter- it just has to hold water. A real bong will typically have a base, to make it free standing. Most bongs are straight tubes, but some are custom with a slight back angle, so you don’t torch your eye brows off or catch your hair on fire when lighting. The bowl is attached to a down-stem, which inserts into the face of the bong near the bottom. Generally a stem will be about 4 to 6 inches long and a ¼ inch diameter. The stem reaches down into the bottom of the bong tube to reach below the water level and is sealed by a watertight rubber grommet at the hole on the front of the bong tube. The external part of the tube protrudes a couple more inches upward, outside the bong tube, where you screw on a bowl.
You hit a bong at the top of the bong tube, drawing the smoke through the bowl and down stem into the water. The smoke cools and rises through bubbles into the empty bong chamber above the water, filling with smoke. When your bowl is cashed, open the carburetor hole or remove the chillum and take your bong hit Note: a “bubbler” is just a name for a mini-bong.
Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a bong and a water pipe?
The first water pipes were made out of gourds. The top was where you put the bowl or chillum, which is on a down-stem reaching the bottom, below the waterline. A water pipe has a straw or pipe coming out at an upward angle from the side. Drawing on the straw pulls the smoke through the down- stem, into the water, up into the body of the gourd and out the straw or pipe. Many water pipes today are made of glass, ceramic or plastic.
There other types of water pipes, some are just one piece glass worked pipes with the water or bubbler chamber under the bowl. Then there’s the Persian hookah or huqqah, which is clearly a water pipe. Hookah is a single or multi-stemmed pipe for smoking flavored tobacco called shisha . The smoke is passed through a water basin before inhalation. So there you go, now you know the difference between bongs and water pipes, now smoke on!
Did you know according to reports published by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC), more than 120,000 Americans are killed by properly prescribed and administered pharmaceuticals every year?
According to the propaganda put out by drug monopolies “only drugs can treat, prevent or cure disease,” which is an ingenious marketing campaign when you think about it. Imagine if you owned a company and could make it illegal for any “alternative products” to compete with yours.
This is exactly what government protected medicine has done. Lobbyists pay off policy writers to make cannabis illegal, simply because they can’t make as much money selling non-patentable, “natural” treatments, preventions and cures. The result is they’ve financed a violent political machine that attacks anyone marketing Alternative Complementary Medicine (CAM), e.g., medical marijuana.
Exposing the corrupt policies of the medical industry only addresses the tip of the iceberg, there’s a much bigger, more complex political machine lurking deep below the surface, but that’s another story for another day.
On a brighter note, have you looked at the overwhelming medical evidence for cannabis? In a nut shell, cannabis has been clinically proven to help with Alzheimer’s, depression, diabetes, fibromyalgia, hepatitis C, HIV, hypertension, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer and more.
Do you have any idea how many profits Big Pharma will lose once the word gets around and the left loses their stigma against medical marijuana? It will mean hundreds of billions of Big Pharma stock holders’ profits will plunge, but isn’t that what a free market is supposed to be all about? Isn’t that how we evolve and produce better products and services to enhance the quality of life for everyone? Isn’t that how we can save billions of dollars in lost revenue to healthcare and lost productivity due to illness? The answer is yes, yes and yes!
Let’s look at one example of evidence-based science supporting medical marijuana, starting with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurological disorder characterized by a progressive loss of memory and learned behavior. It’s estimated more than 4,500,000 Americans already have AD. No approved treatments or medications are made available to stop the progression of AD, and only a few drugs have been FDA-approved to treat AD “symptoms.” A review of the recent scientific literature reveals “cannabinoid therapy” may provide relief to people with AD, while also slowing down the disease.
Medical researchers from the Madrid Complutense University and Cajal Institute in Spain published successful results in the February 2005 issue of the Journal of Neuroscience that cannabinoids prevent neurodegenerative damage caused from AD. The Scripps Research Institute of SoCal reported in 2006 that THC inhibits the enzyme that causes the buildup of (amyloid) plague, which is the main marker for AD. Plus in 2007, Ohio State University’s Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, reported rats treated with a cannabinoid compound (WIN 55,212-2) experienced a 50% increase in memory and a 40% to 50% reduction in inflammation. You’ve heard all the recent hype about the benefits of anti-oxidants from everything from blueberries to raspberries and red wine, right? Previous clinical studies proved “cannabinoids prevent cell death,” because of its powerful anti-oxidant qualities.
Expert medical researchers from all around the world have demonstrated cannabis can help treat, prevent and perhaps even cure AD, which is one of the most devastating brain diseases anyone can get.
Bottom line is every one of the degenerative diseases I mentioned here are in some way related to inflammation. We have medical libraries stacked with published, independent peer reviews, clinical trials and evidence-based studies, which show cannabis is “pointing the way” to a new medical model of health care and wellness. The science is in and the evidence is out, the world is experiencing a “self healing revolution,” which threatens the medical establishment’s bottom dollar and they’re just pissed off as hell because they can’t patent the real weed.
Stay high and tune in next time for more fun cannabis facts to live and smoke by.

Do want to learn the best way to clean a pipe?
Everyone has their own technique for cleaning tar and resin from their favorite pipe and no one needs advice on how to clean an old stone, wood or brass pipe, that’s what paper clips where invented for. However, these days more people own expensive fumed glasswork pipes, costing anywhere from $50 to $350 or more. The most common mistake when cleaning a fine glass pipe is to use excessive hot water on your expensive borosilicate type, Schott, Duran or Pyrex glass pipes.
You may get away with it for a while, but small fractures can make it weaken over time. Always use lukewarm water when cleaning your glass pipes. Another bad habit is using stiff bristles or chemical abrasives on your fine glassworks. Micro-scratches will create more hiding places for tar and resin to harden and create deep stains. Most all chemical pipe cleaners risk leaving behind toxic residue, contaminating your pipe and compromising the medicinal qualities of your smoking experience.
There are as many ways to clean your glass pipe as there are ways to skin a blue iguana. So over the last 12 months we’ve tested more than 37 formulas until we found one pipe cleaning formula we can confidently call the “Gold Standard” for delicate glass pipes. We wanted a pipe cleaning solution that would leave ZERO RESIDUE and contained NO VOCS (volatile organic compounds) and yet easily and quickly dissolved the most stubborn pipe stains, whether from molds, fungus, mildew, tars, oils, or resins from virtually any ceramic, glass, metal, or plastic surfaces.
We were shocked to discover most 420 pipe cleaning formulas, which claimed to be non-toxic, had chemicals proven to be harmful to life. The ONLY 100% non-hazardous, green, and biodegradable botanical (Plant Based) soap formula we found is made with de-ionized water, fatty acids, organic alcohol, folic acid, and mineral based surfactants.
That’s why we recommend Kleen Green Gold. You simply dilute Kleen Green Gold 7 to 1 with distilled water for mild to moderate pipe cleaning and only 3 to 1 for heavy duty pipe cleaning, making it very affordable too! Simply, add Kleen Green Gold, secured with your pipe in a sturdy zip lock freezer bag and shake. When clean, gentle rinse with lukewarm water and you’re as good as new.
Do you want to know the best way to clean a bong? The inevitable evolution of the bong has gone from the Paleolithic, straight tube and shot gun carb, to stellar, handcrafted glassworks of art, complete with all-glass slider bowls, ash catchers, delicate multi-armed percolators and diffusers.
Any true cannabis connoisseur will stop at nothing to create the finest smoking experience possible. The challenge is as glass blowers create wilder, more imaginative and aesthetic smoke-ware, they use the highest quality borosilicate, Schott, Duran, or Pyrex glass available, not to mention adding amazing gold and silver fumed glass works or dichroic effects, which will cost you big time should you break her while cleaning.
Fact is “über” expensive glass bongs have hard to clean nooks and crannies that can crack easily, and break trying to clean out tar and resin stains. So here’s the right and wrong way to clean your prized glass bong: The first thing you don’t want to do is leave behind a chemically toxic residue or use anything abrasive, which might scratch your expensive borosilicate glass. For example, do NOT use toxic scrubbing bubbles, brake or carb cleaners, acetone, kerosene or “quats” as found in Formula 420.
The most popular means for cleaning glass bongs is using Isopropyl alcohol and rock salt, called “salting out.” Because isopropyl alcohol will mix with water by adding inorganic table salt, it makes the alcohol less soluble, creating a “solvent layer” that works quite well on dissolving resin and tars. The only drawbacks are you need a larger salt crystal to “scrub” the glass well enough and isopropyl is toxic.
Bottom line is any kind of “scrubbing” scratches quality borosilicate, Schott, Duran, or Pyrex glass, both weakening your glass bong and creating micro-scratches where more tar and resin can build up, PLUS hot rinsing risks cracking delicate glass parts. To cut to the chase, the best way to clean your glass bong is with a concentrated 100%, non-hazardous, green, biodegradable alternative to all other harmful cleaners. We highly recommend Kleen Green Gold.
Kleen Green Gold easily mixes with distilled water to create a new environmentally and biologically safe technology, whereby microscopic energy fields of negative ions create a unique molecule, which is non-abrasive even to the finest bong glass works. A team of organic scientists specifically developed Kleen Green Gold to be the gold standard of SAFE and EFFECTIVE glass bong cleaners.
Kleen Green Gold leaves ZERO RESIDUE, is made with NO VOCS (volatile organic compounds) and quickly removes stains from molds, fungus, mildew, tars, oils, and resins on virtually any ceramic, glass, metal, or plastic surfaces. INGREDIENTS: 100% Non-Hazardous, green, biodegradable Botanical (Plant Based) Soap Formula made with de-ionized water, fatty acids, organic alcohol, folic acid, mineral based surfactants.
