This March Madness Let the Colors Be Your Guide

By | Blogs | No Comments

March maddness kush bottles child resistant packagingMarch Madness is upon us and if you’re like 50 million working Americans, you’re participating in an office pool. So what’s your strategy?

Picking winners in the NCAA division playoffs has become a science, with experts christened “bracketologists,” who analyze wins/losses and strength of schedule to pick the best of the best.

Here at Kush Bottles, we’ve added the science of “colorology” to the work of bracketology to help you in making your March Madness selections. Since colors are one of the things that makes our child-resistant marijuana containers pop, we wondered if color might have a thing or two to say about what makes a team pop during the NCAA division playoffs. Here is what we found.

Since 1970, more winners of the NCAA championship title have worn light blue as their primary color while holding up that trophy than any other color. Now admittedly, UCLA accounted for a long string of that with their seven consecutive wins between 1967 and 1973. And then you have Duke popping up in ’91, ’92, and again in 2001 and 2010. Seems there is a lot of repeat business when teams sport light blue jerseys on the court.

Red beat out dark blue as the second most popular color to produce a winner. Sixteen of the last 55 games were won by teams donning red in all its shades—cardinal, crimson (Kansas Jayhawks) and even maroon (Loyola Chicago Ramblers in 1963). Dark blue was a close third sending 14 winners to the victory circle.

Teams that wear orange or green are underdogs according to this system. Cheer for them if you must, be realize, the odds are against you.

Here are the breakdowns:

Light Blue won 36% of the games

Red 29%

Dark Blue 25%

Orange 7%

Green 3%

So if you’re looking for a “system” to guide your team selections this year, feel free to use our colorology. Let us know how you do.

 

Safety in Numbers—Polls Show It’s Time to Legalize Marijuana

By | Blogs | No Comments

safety in numbers kush bottles child resistant marijuana packagingA third major survey taker has reinforced what we already know but what some legislators refuse to believe—a majority of Americans now support marijuana legalization.

The General Social Survey (GSS), considered by many to be the nation’s most reliable poll, indicates that 51.7 percent of Americans support marijuana legalization, with 41.7 percent opposed and 6.6 percent undecided.

That’s a hefty upward climb from the first survey results in 1973 when only 19.2 percent of Americans favored legalization, and the lowest show of support in 1987 at 15.6 percent.

The times—they are a changing.

The General Social Survey is in good company right up there with the Gallup which reported 51 percent of Americans back legalization in 2014 and the PEW Research Center whose 2014 survey showed 52 percent in support.

They say there is safety in numbers—guess it’s safe to move ahead with marijuana legalization!

Kush Bottles Salutes the Original Mr. Spock

By | Blogs | No Comments

Mr. Spock Kush BottlesLeonard Nimoy, who is synonymous with the cult-worshipped Mr. Spock of Star Wars fame, died this past week. Since Spock was often the voice of reason on the Starship Enterprise, we thought we’d honor Nimoy’s passing with a few of Spock’s best quotes, shedding light on what’s happening today in the marijuana industry.

“Change is the essential process of all existence.” Spock would not be surprised by the shift in public attitudes on marijuana or the legalization movement—rather he’d see it as an essential evolution.

“Most illogical.” We imagine that’s how Spock would respond to the fact that families are being forced to move so they can get access to the medical marijuana their sick children need. Or that marijuana remains on the Schedule 1 drug list, making it difficult and expensive for research into its therapeutic effects to take place, even though the American Academy of Pediatricians has called for its reclassification.

“In critical moments men sometimes see exactly what they wish to see.” Spock’s wisdom could explain why the marijuana debate goes something like this: “Just because other states have taken this step doesn’t mean we should legalize another intoxicant, especially one that has been proven to be the first step toward abusing the hard drugs that are claiming so many lives through overdoes.” – Pau Chitwood, executive director of Kentucky Baptist Convention on proposed medical marijuana legislation in his home state.

AND

“This is not recreational marijuana; it is medical marijuana, and they should hear the stories from people who say it has benefitted them and their families.” – Kentucky House Speaker Greg Stumbo, who filed the bill to legalize medical marijuana

“Fascinating.” Certainly Spock would have raised one of his eyebrows to each of these facts:

  • Legalized marijuana sales brought in over $60 million in taxes to Colorado government in 2014
  • Seven out of ten Americans believe alcohol is more harmful to a person’s health than alcohol (with recent research backing that up showing marijuana safer than previously thought)
  • The Rhelm of Caring that works with people who want to use Cannabinoid products reports that 85% of their epileptic clients who use the marijuana medicinal oil called “Charlotte’s Web” show a decrease in the number of seizures.
