Chickens could end up being the major beneficiary of the relaxation, as scientists in Chiang Mai have begun testing to see if cannabis could replace antibiotics in commercial farming.

Do they make chicken bongs for direct delivery?

The government of Thailand just removed cannabis from its list of narcotic substances, which they hope will benefit the tourism and pharmaceutical industries.

Chickens could end up being the major beneficiary of the relaxation, as scientists in Chiang Mai have begun testing to see if cannabis could replace antibiotics in commercial farming.

Their findings, which have not yet been published, are that cannabis-supplemented chickens on an organic chicken farm suffered from fewer cases of avian bronchitis, and the quality of meat was judged to be superior, based on the amino acid and lipid profiles, as well as its tenderness, compared with non-supplemented chickens.

It all started when Ong-ard Panyachatiraksa, a farm owner in the north of the country licensed to grow medical cannabis, was trying to brainstorm what to do with all the extra leaves from the cannabis plants. He started giving them to his chicken brood, and then invited scientists to have a look.

Mass-use of antibiotics in commercial chicken production, is, just like in hospitals and schools, leading to the rise in antibiotic-resistant pathogens. The cannabis would offer a different avenue of biological support, without contributing to the already rampant problem.

The scientists from Chiang Mai University found, after studying 1,000 of Ong-ard’s chickens, that cannabis could help reduce farmers’ dependence on antibiotics, according to research lead Chompunut Lumsangkul, an assistant professor at the University’s department of animal and aquatic sciences.

Their working hypothesis is that the cannabis could be improving the chickens’ gut health. One of the major communicators with the immune system, a healthy, flourishing gut microbiota is key to staying fit for all lifeforms.

While it doesn’t necessarily mean the gut microbes, or cannabinoids are killing bacteria and viruses that cause salmonella or avian flu, a healthier, fitter chicken can better defend against those with its innate immune system.

CB2 receptors cover many cells in animals. These receive cannabidiol, or CBD, which interacts with the immune-system. This was shown to increase protection against viral infection and replication COVID-19 better than the vaccine in some cases, as well as effectively reversing the overreaction from the immune system itself that was the leading cause of death in COVID-19 infections, the so-called “cytokine storm.”

House passes legislation decriminalizing marijuana
The question remains: Will it all go up in smoke when it heads to the Senate?

The House of Representatives voted Friday to approve legislation that would decriminalize marijuana at the federal level and remove criminal penalties for certain cannabis-related offenses by a vote of 220-204.    

——————————————

That is a narrow vote.   Should we expect this kind of legislation to pass the Senate now or is 2030 to 2040 a more realistic time line?

The discovery prompted a swift operation by groundskeepers to find, uproot and destroy the plants sneakily seeded in the Parliament’s garden in the capital, Wellington.

“We are weeding out the weed,” Trevor Mallard, the speaker of Parliament, assured New Zealanders in a statement.

Selenium, as I have long understood its importance as a supplement, is the required catalyst needed to help or unlock the full benefits of other supplements such as Vitamin E and some others.  I have taken it for some 30 odd years or so since I learned of its purpose for that reason. I used to know the full details off the top of my head but would have to look it up now.  Just one of those things.  Other supplements still taken since this enlightenment are zinc and Vitamin C.  I have long ago quit taking E as an oral supplement due to problems with its sourcing and certain side affects.

Selenium
Vitamins C, D and K
Zinc

Magnesium is another tricky one, with lots of quality issues.

The thing about trace nutrients is that you have to hit the sweet spot between too little and too much.

Here ya go westslope for an example of my point about making regulations.

 

 kurtster wrote:
I would just say that as with voting, it is not about who votes, but who counts the votes.  Same with "rules".  It is more about who writes them and why than what they actually are.  I would say where there is a "rule" that means someone else has the last word, unless you are the one writing the rules.

The same applies in commerce.  They are called entry barriers.  The ones writing those rules make it as hard as possible to start up a new business to compete with their existing businesses.  Happens everywhere, federal, state, county, local levels.

kurtster, I think we can agree that legislated regulations are necessary for public safety and for creating a fair level playing field for producers and service providers.
 
In principle, yes.
The ambiguity is over 'rules'.    

Norms?  Social conventions?  Legislated regulations?  Laws?  
 
Any of those / all of those ?  It's an analogy of an observation of "the system".  How about this ... rules are only for how to play the game, not how to win the game.  The rules are made so complicated that you spend all your time just trying to figure out what they are and how to comply and never end up playing the game.  A fools errand / Gordian Knot

You mean Ohmsen made a second language mistake with a popular slang expression such as gang bangers?   Oh.

Yes, we have lots of gang bangers up here in Canada-land — in part due to our immigration policy and the slow, difficult 'integration' that results.  They are mostly no longer involved in weed.  For what remains of the black market, volume and some expertise is required.   US hip hop culture helped glorify the gang banger culture up here too.  There was, perhaps still is, a big influence on First Nation gangs.  The USA, always a great neighbour and friend, also helped with the illegal exportation of firearms.  

The great thing about criminals going up scale?   Less violence.  Less threat to the security of the public. 

And you are right that gang bangs appear to always involve alcohol.  


In so much as American lack of legal gun control and extreme interpretation of second amendment rights are entrenched in government policy, the exportation of guns, violent culture, and attacks on allies, even if by non-government groups are illustrations of how the US is engaged in terrorism.
