Toronto Dispensary Raid “Project Claudia”

Toronto Dispensary Raid



Thursday May 26th in Toronto Dispensary Raids took place in Kensington Market and on the Danforth. With warrants on locations, police officers forcefully gained access, confiscating  269 kilograms of dry marijuana, as well as other THC products. police charged 186 people as well as making 90 arrests.  Complaints had been made that these shops were causing a “broad impact ” on the neighboring area close to location. The target was on dispensaries that were claimed to have been distributing marijuana products that did not comply with the  marijuana-for-medical-use regulations.

While some bystanders made commits indicating that this was a good thing to have happen, others were not happy to have witnessed the Toronto raid take place.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion in regards to this situation. Whether you agree or not, personally i dont think it was necessary to make a scene by smashing shop windows.  For those that used these shops to get their medication from, they are now forced to go else where. Having these shops open to the public allowed marijuana users to get their THC from a safe and reliable source. Having a place to be able to get your medication from is crucial for many people, not just marijuana users.

In these kind of scenarios its been voiced by citizens that this is a waste of authorities’ time. That they’re not putting their resources to any good. Some people believe that there are more serious things happening in Toronto that should be addressed before taking action the way the have . Actions like these have left some people with disappointment.

Before the Dispensary raid to place, Notices were given earlier on this month to 78 property owners out of the 83 known medical marijuana dispensaries. Contravening the city’s zoning bylaw, these dispensaries were informed in the notice.

If it wasn’t for events like 420 protests or people gathering to voice  their preference towards marijuana,  we wouldn’t have legalization. This is going to be a long going process to have legalization, as well as a costly matter. This is worth speaking up, and fighting for!

I have a strong opinion towards marijuana, and the good it brings to people. It has so many things to offer and not just smoking and getting high, the marijuana can bring so much more to the table!






Using Marijuana Helps Migraines And Headaches

Using Marijuana For Migraines & Headaches

History shows that cannabis has been used for hundreds, if not thousands, of years for the treatment of migraines. Does a blunt a day take the migraines away? The cannabis plant contains over 100 unique chemical compounds, known as cannabinoids, that work together to help relieve migraine symptoms. Cannabis has anti-inflammatory, pain relieving and anti-nausea properties. It also affects blood vessels; it relieves muscle cramps that can accompany migraines; and it lessens anxiety which can worsen the symptoms of migraines in some patients.

Treating Migraines With Marijuana?

Migraines can also be treated with marijuana, sometimes better than actual migraine medication. When consumed or smoked, retrograde inhibition will help to slow the rate of neurotransmitters in the brain. This is wonderful news for people who suffer from migraines—all too often, these horrific headaches are due to an overload of neural stimulation. Retrograde inhibition also relieves the pain and other symptoms which attend a full-blown migraine, including nausea and sensitivity to lights. Additionally, migraine medication has been flagged for dangerous side effects, including increased blood pressure. Migraine medication can also be rather debilitating to take, as it makes the user feel very tired and only want to sleep. Marijuana can make some users feel slightly sleepy but the doze can be adjusted so that the migraine sufferer will still experience relief from pain, nausea, and hyper-sensitivity, while not becoming as drowsy as they would with the alternative.

Cluster headache is a rare type of headache that affects about 1 to 2 people in every 1,000. It is one of the most painful conditions an individual can experience, described as excruciating and even more debilitating than migraine. Tension headaches are the most common type of headache with muscle tension or inflammation in the muscles of the head, neck, and face may contribute to, or cause, tension headaches. Cannabidiol, or CBD, has been proven by numerous clinical studies to contain properties that relieve inflammation. Along with reducing inflammation, CBD has been shown to reduce anxiety in patients which may lead to a reduction in stress or tension in a tension headache sufferer.Historical records show that marijuana has been used for centuries to treat headaches. Its calming effect and ability to reduce, or eradicate, the symptoms of a headache were accepted by the medical community well into the 20th century. More recently, clinical studies have shown that medical marijuana affects a brain substance known as anandamide. When the THC in marijuana reacts with anandamide, it produces a calming, relaxing effect that permeates the entire body in much the same way that traditional anti-anxiety or anti-depression medications work. Marijuana however, does not increase serotonin levels as do many prescription medications used to treat tension headaches.

Weed and Nausea

Weed and Nausea

Weed and nausea come into mind as we all have been in front of the toilet on our knees a few times.  Marijuana can help settle your stomach very quickly.

Some chemotherapy regimens are notorious for causing terrible bouts of nausea and vomiting, and marijuana has been found to be an excellent anti nausea medication. Smoking marijuana does give the desired effect in a matter of minutes and could, therefore, relieve the symptom quickly. There are literally hundreds of articles that appear in the peer reviewed medical and scientific literature that discuss marijuana’s effects in control of nausea and vomiting. Antiretroviral (ARV) drugs are used to treat HIV positive patients. When these chemicals enter the bloodstream upon ingestion, then the vomiting centre of the brain detects certain changes in the bloodstream in the form of those chemical substances.

They immediately send signals to the stomach to reject the contents, which is what the nauseating feeling is basically. Nausea and vomiting may prove to be more harmful to the body in prolonged cases. It may cause severe dehydration as well as loss of appetite thus leading to malnutrition. Excessive vomiting may also prevent the drugs from being in the system long enough to be absorbed. An antiemetic is a substance that gives some relief from nausea or vomiting. Marijuana contains THC which binds with the endocannabinoid receptors in our brain and causes relief or relaxation of the nauseating tendencies. There are other antiemetics which can be used for patients with severe cases of nausea and vomiting but sometimes, such cases are so severe that traditional antiemetics fail to provide any relief. Marijuana, when smoked, has proven to be highly effective in the harshest cases.
