HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup Raided in Amsterdam

Early this morning, Dutch authorities raided the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam.  UPDATE from HIGH TIMES Magazine:

According to representatives for HIGH TIMES magazine, sponsors of the 24th Annual Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam, the event will continue tonight with a scheduled concert at the Melkweg concert hall (Lijnbaansgracht 234), followed by a full day of the expo (including voting) at the Borchland (Borchlandweg) on Thursday, the final day of the competition. An additional voting station will be set up starting at 2PM on Thursday at the Melkweg, which will remain open until the beginning of the official Cannabis Cup awards ceremony at 8PM. (read more)

According to the East Bay Express:

…police in Amsterdam are in the process of raiding the 24th annual High Times Cannabis Cup Expo. Possession of marijuana has been decriminalized in the Netherlands. But according to tweets on the scene, “everyone will have their buds confiscated, but no one will be charged or fined. This is the first time this has happened in 24 years.”

We broke the news on NORML SHOW LIVE this morning and spoke with Tim Martin of John Doe Radio, who has been in contact with numerous attendees in Amsterdam, including Scott from Rare Dankness Seeds, who called in live to the show (listen here).  According to Scott, much of the Dutch concern is over the concentrates – butane hash oil, for instance – that is considered a “hard drug” in Holland.

“They herded everybody toward one exit, like you’re getting on a ski lift at Vail… then one by one they had about 40 cops there for a little talk and search… People were dropping grams and grams of hash on the ground… baggies littering the floor… people were smoking it if you had it because you weren’t rolling out with it!”

According to Scott there has been one arrest of a vendor who was caught with a lot of “shake” (leaves and stems) which, according to Dutch law, are to be immediately disposed of.  Other reports indicate that there were checks of individuals to ensure they weren’t violating the 5-gram personal possession limit and checks of vendors for compliance with the 500-gram vendor possession limit.

It should be noted that none of this is precipitated by any change in Dutch law.  These limits on personal and vendor possession, disposal of trimmings, and prohibitions on cannabis concentrates have existed throughout the 24-year history of the Cannabis Cup.

What has changed is a new, more conservative government in the Netherlands that seeks to “send a message” about cannabis use.  They began with the closing of border coffee shops to all but Dutch, Belgian, and German passport holders, claiming that “foreign drug tourism” was leading to a host of social ills.

Marijuana Worsens Depression in High Doses

Marihuana is a potent antidepressant in low does, but worsens symptoms in high venereal infections , granting to a new study.

THC , the active ingredient in marijuana , increases serotonin when smoked in low venereal infections , similar to SSRI antidepressant drugs, such as Prozac , according to researchers from McGill University and Le Centre de Recherche Fernand Seguin of Hpital in Quebec and l’Universit de Montral in Montreal.

But at higher social diseases , the outcome turns itself and can actually exacerbate imprint and other psychiatric conditions like psychosis.

During the study, printed in the October 24 event of The Diary of Neuroscience, science lab rats were injected with the synthetic cannabinoid WIN55,212-2 and then screened with the Forced Swim test a trial to measure imprint in creatures .

]]>

The investigators discovered an antidepressant consequence of cannabinoids and an increased action in the neurons that create 5 hydroxytryptamine. Nevertheless , increasing the cannabinoid Venus’s curse beyond a set point completely undid the benefits, said Dr. Gabriella Gobbi of McGill University and Le Centre de Recherche Fernand Seguin of Hpital Louis-H. Lafontaine.

“So we really attested a forked outcome : At blue social diseases it increases serotonin , but at higher venereal diseases the consequence is ravaging , wholly changed by reversal ,” she pronounced in a news tone ending.

The antidepressant and intoxicating results of ganjas are due to its chemical substance similarity to natural substances in the head known as “endo-cannabinoids,” which are ejected under statuses of high tension or pain , said Gobbi. They interact with the head through body structures sent for cannabinoid CB1 receptors .

The study marched that these sense organs have a direct impression on the cells getting 5 hydroxytryptamine, which is a neurotransmitter that regulates the mode , she said.

Because controlling the dosage of natural marihuana is hard peculiarly when it is smoked in the form of cannabis joints using it directly as an antidepressant drug would be hard, enunciated the research workers .

“Excessive marihuana exercise in peoples with depressive disorder positions high hazard of psychosis,” said Gobbi.

Gobbi and her fellows are concentrating their enquiry on a new class of drugs which enhance the results of the brain’s natural endo-cannabinoids.
