He also claimed that he did this for their supporters to get closure on the matter asking them to learn from it and be the change required to end the violence.

10.Young Thug

Young Thug acknowledged the upcoming star’s talent and asked fans to tag him because he wanted to work with him because he was a dope writer. X only responded with an eye emoji.

11. Jermaine Dupri

Jermaine is great at sporting talent and he sure noticed Triple X’s great artwork. The So-So Def founder says he talked to usher about his music and that he was saddened by his untimely death as he thought the rapper would make it big in the industry.

Cannabis and Anger: Can Cannabis Make You Angry?

Cannabis and Anger - Can Cannabis Make You Angry?

After lighting up a joint, most people feel relaxed, mellow, calm, and chill. However, several studies suggest that weed consumption has short-term, residual, and long-term effects on the brain, meaning it can affect your emotional behavior. 

So, yes, marijuana can make you feel angry, grumpy, irritable, and even rage that can sometimes escalate to violence. Some people experience cannabis-associated anger shortly after using, while others experience it as a result of withdrawal. The point is, if you feel anger bursts after lighting up a joint, you are not alone. 

In 2014, researchers at Yale University’s Department of Psychiatry and Pennsylvania State University’s Department of Psychology collaborated to study the effects of the use of cannabis on “impulsivity and hostility in daily life.” The study involved 43 recreational marijuana users with no substance dependence who were told to self-report their weed, tobacco, and alcohol consumption for two weeks.

The data revealed that impulsivity and interpersonal hostility increased on the days when the participants used weed. The researchers linked the anger outbursts to the fact that the consumption of marijuana affects the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), a part of the brain that helps with emotional control and response to other people’s behavior.

Another study by researchers at the University of Buffalo linked the ACC to aggressive behavior during marijuana withdrawal. However, the study participants had a history of violence. 

The Unit Chief of Psychiatry at the Zucker Hillside Hospital in New York, Scott Krakower, told WebMD that “Cannabis use can be linked to anger, rage, and aggression in certain individuals.” He added, “It is proposed that the alterations in the endocannabinoid system may be the cause of these symptoms.

However, as Leafly notes, these studies are not without flaws, mostly because the sample sizes were small. So, like with all marijuana-related findings, more research is needed.

How to Get Rid of Weed Smell

How to Get Rid of the Smell of Weed

While using weed is not as illegal and immoral as it used to be, most users still prefer to keep the habit private. Unfortunately, that can be difficult because it smells, especially when smoked. 

In this post, we have outlined some of the best ways to get rid of the smell of cannabis. 

What are Best Ways to Get Rid of Weed Smells?

  1. Get Some Fresh Air into Your Home

Ventilation is critical to getting rid of any odor. Start by emptying ashtrays and taking out the trash. Then open the windows and doors. If you have a fan, rotate it to face the windows. If possible, get the fan close to the window.

  1. Use Air Freshener

How to Get Rid of the Smell of Weed

A good air freshener can help conceal the smell after smoking. If you smoke regularly, consider a plugging air freshener. 

Alternatives to air freshener include scented candles and incense. In fact, there are scented candles made explicitly for concealing the smell of weed, such as the Cannabolish Smoke Odor Eliminating Candle. Nag champa, sai baba, and agarbatti incense are effective in eliminating the smell of cannabis. 

  1. Use a Strongly Scented Spray to Clean Surfaces

The smell not only settles in the air and fabrics but also on surfaces. Therefore, you should consider cleaning surfaces with strongly-scented sprays regularly. 

  1. Store Your Stash in an Airtight Container

Weed has a strong smell even before you light up. You can conceal the smell by storing your stash in an airtight container, like a mason jar or Tupperware container. Alternatively, you can use a zip lock bag; use two to be safe. 

  1. Invest in an Air Purifier

A good air purifier will eliminate the skunky smell of weed and neutralize other odors in your home. There’s no scent, so no one will accuse you of trying to conceal a particular odor. 

An excellent alternative to an air purifier is a smoke filter, a portable device that eliminates smoke. You could also place an odor-absorbing gel in front of your vents. 

  1. Exhale into a Sploof

Perhaps the easiest way to get rid of weed smell is not to let it escape in the first place. A convenient way to do that is to exhale into a sploof, a device that converts smoke into clean air.

Is Marijuana Legal in New Jersey Yet? Can You buy Weed Locally in 2021?

Is Marijuana Legal in New Jersey Yet? Can You buy Weed Locally in 2021?

In the November Election, about 2.7 million New Jersey residents voted to legalize marijuana. January 1, 2021, was the day the “Constitutional Amendment to Legalize Marijuana” was supposed to take effect. But it appears New Jersey potheads will have to wait a long time before they can locally buy weed legally. 

In an op-ed on local news outlet NJ, Paul Mulshine details the marijuana legal grey-area situation in New Jersey. On New Year’s Day, Mulshine spoke to an elderly woman who traveled all the way from Atlantic Highlands to Trenton (about 60 miles) to find a business openly selling pot, a dispensary owned by a man who goes by the alias “the NJ Weedman.”

Is Marijuana Legal in New Jersey Yet? Can You buy Weed Locally in 2021?

So, he posed the question: “When will she and the 2,737,681 other people who voted for the measure have a chance to buy pot locally?”

According to Mulshine, that question should have a straightforward answer by now. Both houses passed the legislation that would allow the implementation of the amendment. However, Governor Phil Murphy is yet to sign the bill because he feels it is too harsh on underage usage. 

But according to state Senator Nick Scutari, who sponsored the bill, the governor’s concerns could be easily fixed. He hopes both houses will soon meet to address the issue and amend the bill.

Even then, it still won’t be easy to find pot locally. The bill states that only marijuana dispensaries approved by the Marijuana Regulatory Commission can sell weed. The approval process can take up to 18 months. 

In short, even after the governor and the legislators agree on the bill, New Jerseyans will have nowhere to buy weed legally. 

That said, the NJ Weedman and other shops that had acquired medical marijuana licenses might start openly selling for recreational purposes.
