Magic Flight Launch Box – MFLB

magic-flight-launch-box_1There’s hundreds of ways to make the jump from combustion to vaporization, and the Magic-Flight Launch Box is probably one of the most approachable.

It’s a hand-held, battery-powered, easy-bake oven for cannabis flowers that’s really easy to master and comes with a lifetime warranty. There’s no clicking buttons five times fast to turn it on. Just load in a layer of ground herb, slot in the special battery, press, hold, and sip cool vapor. Available in Cherry, Walnut, and Maple wood with or without engravings, Launch Boxes are made with love by hippies in San Diego, and Smell the Truth adores this unit.

PROS:

Cool, Huge clouds: If you can be patient and softly sip, you can take very, very large lung-fulls of vapor with no irritation. Vaporization results in faster peak THC levels in blood plasma than smoking, and lasts just as long as burning weed, without any of the carcinogens.

Small, light, portable: The Magic Flight is stealthy and fits in the palm of your hard. It’s really easy to pre-load a bowl and launch as needed.

Earthy and approachable: The Launch Box has a really robust design. It’s a beautifully crafted wooden box (ours came in Maple) that feel familiar in-hand. It doesn’t put people off like a big vaporizer lightsaber (vape-saber).

Healthy: Made of non-fuming material, the Launch Box gently heats herb to the point where the psychoactive molecules boil off. But that’s well below the point of combustion, when the reaction would start making nasty byproducts like polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).

Lifetime Warranty: The Magic Flight is downright a bargain when you consider vaping is more efficient than smoking and the Launch Box comes with a lifetime functional warranty.

CONS:

Learning curve: Hitting the Launch Box is almost the opposite of a bong or a joint, where the harder you rip, the bigger the toke is. You want to softly sip the Box to keep the temperature up in the chamber. Hard drags just pull in cool air and stop the vaporization process. It’s easy to learn, but takes a day to master.

Batteries: You risk a potential short-circuit if the unshielded battery makes a circuit from the positive anode at the top and the sidewall, which is part of the negative anode. Keep the safety caps on when not in use.

Batteries 2: You’re going to need to buy an extra set of batteries, and keep them charged up. But the upside is re-chargeable batteries are really good and cheap nowadays, and you’ll find other uses for them in cameras, wireless keyboards and whatnot.

Batteries 3: You’re going to have to remove third-party replacement battery sleeves yourself, which is pretty easy to do.

OTHER FACTORS:

The rugged Magic-Flight is suitable for hikers and other outdoorsy types. One battery should last one person one day’s moderate Launch Box use, so pack accordingly.

Pro-Pot Push: The Next Gay Marriage

USA — The image makes supporters of marijuana legalization cringe: a zoned-out-looking, T-shirt-wearing Grateful Dead slacker, his hair long and unwashed and his brain cleansed of any ambition or coherent thought. The caricature is not dissimilar to the distorted images and stereotypes once attached to gay couples. Within the space of just a decade, those unrealistic images of same-sex partnerships quickly disappeared as more Americans embraced their gay colleagues and family members. And with startling alacrity, the law has followed with states adopting same-sex marriage statutes and courts across the country striking down bans on same-sex unions.

Marijuana legalization, its backers say, is the new gay marriage, on an unstoppable path to social and legal acceptance. “It’s turned quite quickly,” says Erik Altieri, communications director for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. “More and more Americans are waking up to the failure of marijuana prohibition.”

Just as gay marriage is becoming the norm, decriminalization and legalization of marijuana is likely to be the law in a majority of states in the near future, Altieri predicts. Decades ago, such a statement would have been laughable.

Jeb Bush Opposes Florida MMJ Initiative

Florida — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) is urging Floridians to vote against a medical marijuana ballot measure, according to a statement published Thursday by the Tampa Bay Times.

“Florida leaders and citizens have worked for years to make the Sunshine State a world-class location to start or run a business, a family-friendly destination for tourism and a desirable place to raise a family or retire,” the prospective 2016 GOP presidential candidate said.

“Allowing large-scale, marijuana operations to take root across Florida, under the guise of using it for medicinal purposes, runs counter to all of these efforts. I believe it is the right of states to decide this issue, and I strongly urge Floridians to vote against Amendment 2 this November,” he added in the statement.

After Legalization, Hempfest More Celebration

Washington — Seattle’s very own “protestival” is back — without much to protest. Hempfest 2014 has the usual tie-dye T-shirt-wearing, dread-headed, high-minded attendees, but with marijuana now legal in Washington state, the tone of the 23-year-old festival has shifted from dissent to celebration.

Still, the festival’s guide urges activists to “soldier on in the struggle for full legalization.” “This is the one plant that can revolutionize the world,” said Seattle resident Jacob Junkman, who spends much of his time volunteering at medical dispensaries and was wearing a T-shirt that read “Marijuana is safer than alcohol.”

Similar to beer gardens at other public festivals, this year’s Hempfest hosts two areas that allow consumers of legal age to light up (away from underage attendees including babies in strollers).

But the festival’s official efforts to follow the law didn’t stop attendees from smoking as they strolled from booth to booth, examining the glass, vapes and other hemp-related products for sale. Other vendors are local companies like Kush Tourism, which offers “rent-a-vape” services for $10 an hour.

While many locals were marked by their Seahawks gear, a contingent of the festivalgoers came from out of town. Dezon Dalberg, owner of a dispensary in Bend, Ore., trekked up to Hempfest from CannaCon, the marijuana industry’s first convention that is also taking place this weekend in Tacoma.

“We’re at the beginning of an industry, even though it’s been around forever,” said Dalberg, who is in the process of opening three more dispensaries in Oregon. Read More..

Connecticut Growers Tending Marijuana Crops

Connecticut — For months, Advanced Grow Labs LLC — one of Connecticut’s four medical marijuana growing companies — slogged through the process of competing for a state license, securing local zoning approvals, and outfitting a building to state regulations that are as a tough as those at any pharmaceutical manufacturer.

Now, managing partner David Lipton knows his West Haven company is getting close: He planted his first marijuana seeds almost three weeks ago. “I did my own tray, the D.L. tray,” Lipton said last week. “My tray is looking pretty good; they’re about 3 or 4 inches high now. Finally, we’re not just buying stuff, we’re dealing with something that grows.”

Nearly two years after the state legalized it, the first medical marijuana is expected to go on sale next month. About 2,000 residents with qualifying chronic illnesses have registered with the state and with one of Connecticut’s six dispensaries.

The four medical marijuana manufacturers are at varying stages of growing pot. It remains unclear which company will be the first to market, turning the raw plant into medicine that is smoked, used in a vaporizer, eaten or rubbed on.

Connecticut’s six licensed dispensaries have fielded calls from potential clients for months, and at least one has passed the final state inspection and is consulting with clients to map out treatment plans with pharmacists on its staff.

In South Windsor, Prime Wellness of Connecticut last week met with as many as 50 people suffering with some of the 11 illnesses covered under the law.

“There are patients that are really, really in need, and so they have been waiting for two years,” said Tom Nicholas, chief executive of the Prime Wellness dispensary. “We’re almost at the end of the tunnel, but not quite.” Read More..

Teen Marijuana Use Remains Flat Nationwide

By Matt Ferner, The Huffington Post

USA — As marijuana’s national popularity continues to grow and more states have legalized either medical or recreational use of it, a new federal survey shows that those shifting attitudes have not produced a surge in teen use.

The biennial High School Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed that the rate of marijuana use among U.S. high school students remained virtually unchanged from 2011 to 2013. It’s also about 3 percent less than the peak of teen marijuana use in 1999, when nearly 27 percent of teens said they had recently used marijuana, according to the CDC data.

In 2013, 23.4 percent of American high-school-aged teens used marijuana one or more times in the 30 days before the survey, the data show. That’s nearly even with 23.1 percent in 2011.

From 2011 to 2013, five more states — Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Illinois and New Hampshire — legalized marijuana for medical use. Currently, 22 states and the District of Columbia have legal medical cannabis programs. Also during that period, Colorado and Washington state became the first two states in the nation to legalize recreational marijuana.

The CDC’s findings are similar to those in a recent report published in the Journal of Adolescent Health, which compared 20 years of CDC YRBS data about high school teens’ marijuana habits in states that have legalized medical marijuana compared with neighboring states that continue to ban the plant. It found that legalization of marijuana for medical purposes did not result in greater illicit use of the substance by high school students. Read More..
