Does Marijuana Boost Creativity?

For quite some time, numerous highly acclaimed artists, scientists, writers, musicians, and creative people of all sorts have claimed that marijuana holds enormous potential to enhance creativity and inspire the imagination.
Now, new scientific studies are beginning to confirm these claims, and researchers are starting to understand the psychological mechanisms behind how cannabis can improve the creative process.

There’s a common myth, perpetuated by the mainstream media, that people often mistakenly think that they’re brilliant and creative while under the influence of cannabis, only to find that their creations are worthless, or that their insights are meaningless nonsense, upon returning to normal everyday consciousness.

Let’s dispel this pervasive myth about cannabis right now, by taking the many anecdotal reports to heart, and looking at what the scientific studies have to say.

From Charles Baudelaire to George Carlin, Shakespeare to Carl Sagan, Louis Armstrong to Paul McCartney, Norman Mailer to Jack Nicholson, the list of accomplished creative people who have claimed a positive influence from their use of cannabis is truly impressive.

Marijuana helps relieve pain caused by MS

SAN DIEGO, California – Patients suffering from the nervous system disorder Multiple Sclerosis (MS) receive positive effects from smoking weed. A new study presents objective evidence that confirms earlier hypotheses on its results.The results can be found in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

The researchers conducted a placebo controlled experiment. Half of the patients received cannabis cigarettes, whereas the other half received an identical placebo cigarette. The groups would switch after a short wash-out period. It turns out that the smoked weed worked better than the placebo cigarettes in reducing symptoms such as spasms and muscle contractions. These symptoms are hard to top with regular medication, which as a consequence will have a large influence in the quality of life of the patient.

Up until now there were signs of possible positive effects from cannabis, but that was nothing more than just anecdotes or oral intake, instead of smoking it. This is the fifth study of the University of California center for Medicinal Cannabis Research into the effects of marijuana usage on disease. Up until now all of these studies have found a positive effect.

When can Police Search your Car?

While police generally need a warrant to search you or your property — during a traffic stop, police only need probable cause to legally search your vehicle. Probable cause means police must have some facts or evidence to believe you’re involved in criminal activity.

In other words, an officer’s hunch without evidence of illegal activity is not enough to legally search your car. Before searching, he must observe something real. Common examples of probable cause include the sight or smell of contraband in plain view or plain smell, or an admission of guilt for a specific crime. The presentation of any of these facts would allow an officer to perform a search and make an arrest.

Be aware that minor traffic violations (e.g. speeding, broken tail-light, or expired registration) are not considered probable cause.

Okay. So how can I keep police from searching my car?

Simply understanding the legal definition of probable cause probably won’t be enough to prepare you for the pressure and confusion of a real police encounter.  

The Fourth Amendment 
to the Constitution of 
the United States of America

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
