Marijuana:

(Budding Marijuana Plant)
external image Marijuana-3.jpg

Background Information:
  • THC, a highly lipid soluble molecule, is found in both the male and female marijuana plants[1]
  • THC is found on the resin glands of the plan that are produced during the maturation process. These glands are the protective shield for the seeds from the sun's searing heat. Thus, these glands are essential to the plant in a hot and dry atmosphere, rather than a humid one. In order to maximize the resin production of the plant, the plant should be grown in an atmosphere with low humidity during the flowering stage. [2]

Growing Marijuana:

  • With medical marijuana becoming decriminalized in a number of states, it is now possible for these patients to grow their own medication.
  • When the plant progresses to the flowering stage, the female plants will begin to create buds, and the males will begin to create pollen. [3]
    • During the vegetative phase of the plant, it will need 18 hrs. of light and 6 hrs. of darkness[4]
    • Once the plant progresses to the flowering stage of its life, it will need 12 hrs. of light and 12 hrs. of darkness[5]
  • For prescribed users, it is important for them to separate the male and female plants in order to maximize their treatment effect. [6]
    • Not properly separating the sex of these plants will produce buds that are very “seedy.” If the plant is forced to use excess energy to produce these seeds, it cannot focus its energy on producing THC; a seedy bud is essentially useless. [7]

Female Flowers

  • “If a genetic female that has only the xx chromosome produces a male flower, it can only transfer the x chromosome. If this pollen is collected and another genetic female is pollinated with this exact pollen, then the offspring (seed) will only have the xx chromosomes and it will produce almost all females. This is one of the ways how seed companies produce the famous feminized autoflowering cannabis seeds. There is always a small possibility that a feminized seed will become a hermaphrodite but it is far more likely to get a female than a hermie.”[8]
  • The female marijuana plant produces the bud that the patient seeks. The female buds contain the highest amount of THC and thus produce the most effective medicines.

Male Flowers


  • The male marijuana pollen is so potent that it has the ability to pollinate the female plant up to 10 miles away.
  • The male marijuana plant is essentially useless, but there have been recent discoveries of uses to these plants.
  • These plants can benefit the growth of consumable vegetation. The male plant, because of its pungent smell and high tolerance to droughts, possesses the ability to attract beneficial insects while deterring harmful insects from other plants.[9]
    • While these plants possess little benefits in regards to smoking, the THC that is generated by these plants can be cooked down with butter or oil and then be used to create edible medication.[10]
    • When these plants reach maturation and begin to die, their stocks can be used as a climbing source for vining vegetables or legumes. At maturation, these plants can grow up to nine to ten feet in height. [13]
    • By collecting the pollen produced by these males, a patient can place this pollen on a low hanging bud (one that does not get much light and thus is not as potent) and get a self-sustaining crop. [14]
  • It is important to separate male from female plants as soon as possible. Because once the male pollenates the female plant, the female plant will use some of its energy to create seeds. Thus it is taking energy away from the bud that would increase the patient’s medications potency. [15]

Hermaphrodite Plants


  • Female plants, possessing xx chromosomes, and male plants, possessing xy chromosomes, can sometimes create a hermaphrodite plant called a “hermie”. [16] These “hermies” are plants that are technically one sex, male or female, but generate both male and female flowers.[17]
  • Typically you will find female plants that are “hermies,” meaning the produce male flowers as well as female flowers. [18]
    • When you find a male plant creating both female flowers and male flowers, this is called a “backward hermie.” [19]
  • “Backwards Hermie’s”o Plats will become “hermies” for two reasons
    • “Backward hermaphrodites are also a good thing and some growers say that with these backward hermaphrodites you can produce the most potent and most resinous females and also get a better female to male ratio of those backward hermie seeds. These weird hermies are very rare appearance and there is not much information about their positive and negative traits but the potential of these male hermaphrodites are huge and we need to do more research to fully understand these plants.”[20]
  • 1. Genetic Hermaphrodites: These plants have been genetically designed to become “hermies.” [21]
  • 2. Stress Induced Hermaphrodites: This will happen to plants that are pure males or females but are stressed in such a way that they will become a “hermie.” These stresses include: [22]
    • a. Rapid changes in the light cycle
    • b. Fluctuations PH levels in the soil or water
    • c. Introducing the plant to a temperature shock
    • o You can collect the pollen from a female “hermie” to pollinate some of your other plants and thus produce a self-sustaining crop. [23]
      • This is a good and cheap way to obtain auto flowering-feminized seeds.
      • If a “hermie” plant pollinates himself or any other female there is a 50 % chance of these next generation seeds to become hermaphrodites[24]

external image 0YbnqG2.png



  • Sativa
    • Tall thin plant with narrow leaves with a light green color to them. These plants grow very quickly and can reach heights of 20 feet in a season.
    • Indica originally came from Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and Southeast Asia. [27]
    • Once these plants reach the flowering stage of their lives, they will be fully mature in 10-16 weeks.[28]
    • These plants give the user a cerebral and energetic high often described as a “head buzz.” [29]
      • Consumers describe the high as being associated with: [30]
        • Hilarious fits of laughter
        • Long discussions about nothing
        • Enhancing audio and visual senses
    • These plants will create tastes ranging from earthy to sweet and fruity. [31]
    • Indica has lower THC levels but higher CBN/CBD levels. [32]
      • Effects
        • Indica generally is more physical than cerebral (however, the relief of physical symptoms can have a positive psychological effect)
        • Sedation, pain relief and relaxation
        • Best for later in the day and bedtime
        • Perhaps better for anxiety than depression
        • Reduces pain
        • Muscle relaxant
        • Relieves spasms, reduces seizures
        • Reduces inflammation
        • Aids sleep

external image Sannies_Jack_F5-3.jpgexternal image 10101053134390044_big.jpg

  • Indica

    • Indica hails from hash producing countries like Afghanistan. Morocco, and Tibet.[33]
    • These are short dense plants with broad leaves that produce a much darker green color than Sativa's do. Their buds tend to be thick and dense resembling the rest of the plant. [34]
    • Once sativa plants reach the flowering stage they will be mature in 6-8 weeks. [35]
    • These plants produce a flavor and aroma that may range from pungent skunk to sweet and fruity.
    • These plants give you a heave “body buzz” causing the user to feel lethargic, tired, lazy, laid back and unwilling to attend to everyday tasks. The users of this plant say that when using the plant, they want to be left alone to sit in deep intellectual thought and enjoy the pain relief effects of the plant. [36]
      • The user say you may find it very hard to stay awake as well.[37]
    • “This is the best sort of “high” for easing pain and most of the other symptoms these conditions.”[38]
    • These plants will yield their maximum medical potency if grown indoors.[39]
    • Indica’s have high THC levels but low CBN/CBD levels[40]
      • Effects
        • More stimulating and uplifting
        • Energizing and thought provoking
        • Increases focus and creativity
        • Supports immune system
        • Best for use in daytime

external image sativa-l-indica-r-003.jpg

  • Rudelaris
    • These plants can typically be found growing wild in parts of Eastern Eurpoe and Russia. Because these plants are native to colder climates, they will typically be used to produce hybrids between themselves and either Indica’s or Sativa’s.[41]o These plants will flower faster than their sister plants, Indica and Sativa, but will not grow as tall. [42]
      • Today you can find this plant in almost any region that currently or formerly grows hemp, such as:
        • Midwest regions of North America, Canada and the Himilayas.
    • These plants are very advantageous to medical growers because: [43]oo Ruderalis was used by the Soviets to describe the different varieties of hemp which adapted the surrounding region after it had escaped cultivation. [44]
      • Shortened grow period
      • Discreet size
      • Naturally auto-flower’s
      • Do not require a change in lighting schedule once they reach the flowering stage.

How Marijuana affects humans
  • Since 1970, the US Federal Government has classified cannabis as a schedule one substance. [45]
  • When something is identified as schedule one, this mean the government finds no accepted medical use of the plant and it has a high potential of abuse. [46]
  • Cannabis’s primary psychoactive component is delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol (THC) and it is a potent psychotoxin. [47]
    • There are at least 80 derivatives of THC which have been synthesized and studied pharmologically. The effects of the drug typically range from euphoria to anxiousness.
    • These synthetic forms of THC are categorized under the names: [48]
      • Synhexyl
      • Pyrahexyl
      • Parahexyl

Medical Studies

  • In 1990, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) identified the cannabis receptor in the brain: CB1
  • “CB1 receptors are mainly found in specific areas of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system. Within these areas, high density binding occurs in the cerebellum, basal ganglia, hippocampus and cerebral cortex, while low density binding occurs in the brainstem. CB2 receptors are found mainly in the immune system on the spleen, tonsils, B cells, minocytes, natural killer cells, T4 cells, and T8 cells. All cannabinoid receptors belong to the superfamily of G-protein coupled plasma membrane receptors.”[49]
  • “One of the first therapeutic uses of marijuana in the modern era has been its effects in suppressing nausea suffered by anti-cancer chemotherapy patients. The controversy in this case is whether or not marijuana needs to be smoked in order to achieve the full benefits. Unlike THC capsules or other legal nausea suppressors, smoking marijuana in the joint form allows the patients to have control over the dosage. This also allows patients to feel as though they have some sense of control over their bodies while suffering from cancer, a life-threatening illness that they have no control over.”[50]
  • In 1997 the US National Institute of Health (NIH) and the British Medical Association, released a report claiming that cannabis had potential therapeutic uses. These reports concluded that cannabis could be useful as analgesics, antispasmodics, anti-emetics, appitite stimulants, and in the treatment of epilepsy and glocoma. However, as a result of these studies it is still highly debated whether there is a medical beneficial difference between oral consumption of THC and smoothing the plant.
      • “On March 17, 1999, the US Institute of Medicine (IOM) said that smoking marijuana has benefits for the terminally ill. The study concluded that cannabinoids can be useful in treating pain, nausea and appetite loss caused by advanced cancer and AIDS. D-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) also acts as a sedative and reduces anxiety, which in itself may have therapeutic effects. The results of the studies done by IOM also stated that there was no evidence for marijuana being a "gateway" to harder drugs, or that it is addictive.”[51]
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS): [52]
    • Marijuana seems to bring relief to sufferers of MS like no other painkiller can.
    • People who suffer from this disease typically experience burning sensations in their limbs, particularly at night. Patient claim that by consuming the drug prior to sleep is the difference between a good nights sleep and staying awake due to the pain.
    • MS sufferers also experience intense spasms, as a result of nerve damage, and marijuana has shown to help reduce or control the incidence of these spasms.
      • Epilepsy sufferers and patients suffering from spinal cord injuries also have reported marijuana’s beneficial effects.
  • “A study by Keith Green, of the Department of Ophthamology at the Medical College of Georgia, was conducted to see the clinical effects, including toxicological effects, of marijuana and it's many constituent components on the eye and the remainder of the body. The conclusions derived from this study yielded mixed results. In the case of glaucoma, it is widely accepted that the elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) that causes damage to the optic nerve is greatly reduced in 60 to 65 percent of users when marijuana is smoked. That is why until 1991, America's Food and Drug Administration (FDA) permitted ophthamologists to prescribe marijuana to patients for whom all other treatments had failed. However, more recent research shows that the continued use of marijuana at the high dose that is required to control glaucomatous pressure would lead to substantial systemic toxic effects (i.e. increased risk of lung cancer). Concurrently, new glaucoma drugs have been produced. These drugs act at different biological pathways to help reduce the IOP. Yet, no approved drug so far actually makes the eyes' drainage system more efficient than marijuana. In order to circumvent the systemic toxic effects, Keith Green says that "development of drugs based on the cannabinoid molecule or its agonists for use as topical or oral antiglaucoma medications seems to be worthy of further pursuit."[10]
  • Negative medical findings:
    • The University of Buffalo in New York recently released a report showing that after 30 years of heavy marijuana use in males, their can be a drastic effects of sperm production in the testis. [53]
    • Human sperm contains receptors for cannabinoids
    • This study showed that marijuana could affect the sperm in three key ways.
      • Preventing the sperm from binding with the egg
      • Regulation of sperm swimming activities
      • Inhibition of acrosomal reaction- the normal release of sperm enzymes to allow the sperm to penetrate the egg.
  • To date, the deemed status of marijuana being a “gateway drug” to other illicit drugs have proven inconclusive. “Studies have shown that there are more benefits to smoking marijuana than there are risks.

Cannabis in history


  • The oldest known record of cannabis use is from about 5000 years ago. Though the exact origins of the plants usage remain unclear, it has been hypothesized that it originally originated in central Asia, north of the Himalayas.[54]
  • “Central Asiatic nomads may have been the agents for cultural dispersion of the hemp plant throughout Asia. Warlike equestrian pastoralists inhabiting Scythia, a large ancient region in southeastern Europe and Asia used the hemp plant for textiles and intoxication. Herodotus, a famous Greek historian, stated that the "Scythian passion was inhaling the smoke of burning hemp plants." This was done by burning portions of the plant in metal censers beneath small tent structures that enclosed the vapors, which were then inhaled for ritualistic and euphoric purposes. Later it was discovered by Russian archaeologists that hemp fibers were used by the Scythians for certain types of clothing's.”[55]
  • “In the Mediterranean region, there is strong evidence that hemp intoxication was a popular social practice. In the first century of the Christian era, Dioscordes, a physician, wrote a book on medicinal herbs. He was unaware of the "dioecious nature of the hemp plant and therefore listed a separate species for both the female (Kannabis Emeros) and the male (Kannabis Agria)." He indicated that for females, cannabis could be used for strong rope, relieving earaches, and inducing menstrual flow. For the male, on the other hand, cannabis could be used for muscular ailments.”[56]

Wild Card: Medical marijuana as an employee and college student
How will employers deal with employees who are legally prescribed this medication?
    • US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC): Disability Discrimination
    • “Disability discrimination occurs when an employer or other entity covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended, or the Rehabilitation Act, as amended, treats a qualified individual with a disability who is an employee or applicant unfavorably because she has a disability.”[57]
  • Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), employers are forbidden to discriminate again employees based on their disabilities.[58]
    • If these patients are prescribed this medication, then their prescribing physician has qualified this ailment as a disability needing treatment
  • The two recent cases – one in Georgia and the other in Tennessee – involving prescription drug use and disability show very clearly that an employer violates the ADA when it tests employees for legal drugs and then fires them based on those test results.[59]
    • Atlanta, Georgia[60]
      • The Case:
        • The patient was a lab technician. While on the job she had an adverse reaction to her oral medication.
          • The employer forced the defendant to submit to an immediate drug test
          • "The EEOC filed this case because the evidence indicated [the defendant] was terminated because her disability required her to take medication…"Making employment decisions on the basis of stereotypical assumptions about disability-based medications is one of the problems the ADA was designed to combat." –EEOC Atlantis district attorney
          • Findings:
            • The case was settled outside of court for the sum of $50,000.
    • Nashville, Tennessee[61]
      • The Case:
        • The employer required mandatory screening of all its employees, screening these individuals for 12 substances.
          • 5 of them were illegal substances
          • 7 of them were legally prescribed medications
          • If the employee tested positive for any of the medically necessary drugs, the employee was forced to disclose why the medications were being consumed. Furthermore, the employee was not allowed to return to work until the consumption of this medication had stopped.
            • Regardless of if the medication affected the employees performance at work or not.
          • Findings:
            • "The EEOC's Guidance on Disability-Related Inquiries and Medical Examination of Employees provides that asking an employee whether he or she is currently taking any prescription medications may be considered a medical inquiry."
            • The case was settled outside of court for the sum of $750,000.
  • What about employees in states that have legalized the use of marijuana?
    • Denver, Colorado[62]
      • The case:
        • Defendant is 33years old, working for a local cable company in Denver.
          • Fired for testing positive for merijuana
          • Legal medical marijuana user since 2009
            • Paralyzed as a teenager in a car accident
          • Findings:
            • The Colorado Court of Appeals found there is no employment protection for medical marijuana users in the state since the drug remains barred by the federal government.
            • "For an activity to be lawful in Colorado, it must be permitted by, and not contrary to, both state and federal law,"- Court of Appeals
            • "This case not only impacts [the defendant], but also some 127,816 medical marijuana patient-employees in Colorado who could be summarily terminated even if they are in legal compliance with Colorado state law," –The Defendants Lawyer
  • “Because federal – as opposed to state – law does not recognize the medical use of marijuana, current use of marijuana, even if permitted under state law and prescribed by a physician, would still be considered illegal drug use under federal law and an employer would be free to fire an employee for that reason,” -EEOC lawyer.[63]
    • Example: An employer learns that an employee is using prescribed marijuana for pain associated with their cancer treatments. Here, “if the employer ‘takes no action against other employees who are recreational marijuana users, that would be an illegal, disability-based employment decision,” explains the attorney. But, adds the attorney, as long as the employer treats all marijuana users the same, the fact that one was using it for a disability would not protect her under the ADA from being fired, ‘as he or she would be considered a current user of illegal drugs under federal law.’”[64]

What about a student, who lives in a campus dormitory, and is prescribed medical marijuana for their ailment?
  • University of Colorado at Boulder[65]
        • Nope. Marijuana cannot be possessed or used on any University property.
        • If the student possess a medical marijuana registry card prior to attending the university, they may submit a request to the executive director of Housing and Dinning Services asking to be released from the obligatory on campus living contract.
          • If the student obtains their registry card while attending the university, they too can submit this request. They may be pardoned from the contact without financial penalty.

  • University of Rhode Island[66]
    • NO. Their policies are very similar to Providence College’s.
      • Limited Administrative Search
        • A hands-off search limited to what is in visible sight. The investigator may briefly look in the fridge and under and around surfaces.
        • Full Administrative Search
          • The University must obtain credible information that the student is involved in criminal activity or is in serious violation of community standards.
          • A formal search warrant from the Director of Res. Life, Dean of Students or V.P. of Student affairs.
            • These individuals will then conduct and monitor the search.
            • Campus police are not involved.
          • Other Searches
            • Federal, state, or social law enforcement in conjuncture with campus police are involved in the search.
            • These searches will be preformed within the standards of typical police searches of private residencies.
            • Any and all information obtain can and will be used in the court of law and can result in the student dismissal from the university.

      • “Brown University prohibits illicit drug activity and/or paraphernalia used in illicit drug activity by any of its students, on its premises, or as part of any of its activities.”
      • If for any reason the university assumes that a student poses a danger to themselves or the Brown community, this student will be released from the university and may receive additional actions from the school.
        • These decisions are by the President, VP or Campus Life and Student Services, the Dean of the College, Dean of Graduate Studies or the Dean of Medicine and Biological Sciences.
