Study Finds Cannabis Use Linked to Lower Body Mass Index

Category: Tokers | Posted on Sun, September, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

According to a new study published this month in the Journal of Mental Health Policy and Economics, and published online by the U.S.National Institute of Health, cannabis use is associated with a lower body mass index (BMI).

Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Adolescent Health, researchers estimated “fixed-effects models to more rigorously study the relationships between marijuana use and body mass index over time.” Their analyses include “numerous sensitivity tests using alternative estimation techniques and at Wave IV we investigate the relationship between marijuana use and an alternative measure of body size (waist circumference).”

According to researchers; “Results show that daily female marijuana users have a BMI that is approximately 3.1% (p<0.01) lower than that of non-users, whereas daily male users have a BMI that is approximately 2.7% (p<0.01) lower than that of non-users.”

North Dakota to Get Armed Police Drones

Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

National Public Radio’s The Two-Way blog reports that North Dakota police forces are about to get the nation’s first weaponized drones, following passage of a bill allowing them earlier this year. Ironically, this is coming about in spite of the legislation’s main sponsor, Republican state Rep. Rick Becker. While the law limits the type of weapons permitted to those in the “less than lethal” category—tear-gas, rubber bullets, beanbags, pepper spray and Tasers—the original bill would have entirely barred weapons from police drones. According to The Daily Beast, Becker told a hearing in March: “In my opinion there should be a nice, red line: Drones should not be weaponized. Period.” The original intent of his bill was to require police to obtain a search warrant before using a drone to gather evidence, as well as prohibiting weapons from drones. But to get the provision requiring search warrants passed, Becker had to drop the provision barring weapons.

Medical Cannabis Legalization is Up for Vote in 4 States: Here’s How you can Help!

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, September, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

On Tuesday we published an article detailing how you can get involved with the five cannabis legalization initiatives up for a vote this November. However, there are four additional states voting this November on the legalization of cannabis for medical uses.

Below is how you can get involved with each of these efforts:

Florida

Florida’s Amendment 2 is in good position at the moment, with polling from July showing that 77% of voters in the state support the measure. However, polling was similarly high in 2014, when an almost identical measure failed at the ballot despite receiving over 50% of the vote (as with this measure, it requires 60% to pass). This makes it vital for proponents of medical cannabis legalization in Florida – and those outside of the state – to get involved in making sure that the 60% threshold is met this time.
