As More States Legalize Marijuana, Adolescents’ Problems With Cannabis Decline

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

Teen Age Dope SlavesA survey of more than 216,000 adolescents from all 50 states indicates the number of teens with marijuana-related problems is declining. Similarly, the rates of marijuana use by young people are falling despite the fact more U.S. states are legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana use and the number of adults using the drug has increased.

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis examined data on drug use collected from young people, ages 12 to 17, over a 12-year span. They found that the number of adolescents who had problems related to marijuana — such as becoming dependent on the drug or having trouble in school and in relationships — declined by 24 percent from 2002 to 2013.

Over the same period, kids, when asked whether they had used pot in the previous 12 months, reported fewer instances of marijuana use in 2013 than their peers had reported in 2002. In all, the rate fell by 10 percent.

Those drops were accompanied by reductions in behavioral problems, including fighting, property crimes and selling drugs. The researchers found that the two trends are connected. As kids became less likely to engage in problem behaviors, they also became less likely to have problems with marijuana.

Urge D.C. Judiciary Committee To Improve Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, May, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

washington dc decriminalization marijuana possessionI received the following alert out of DC:

While D.C. has an effective medical marijuana program, there is still room for improvement. Two bills are pending to do just that, but they’re stalled in the Judiciary Committee. Click here to urge all the Judiciary Committee members to make sure these bills move forward NOW.

B21-192 would require lab testing so that patients know what they are getting and that their medicine is free of contaminants, while B21-210 would allow reciprocity for out-of-state patients and remove the arbitrary cap on the number of plants a cultivation center can grow, alleviating shortages and driving down prices.

Unfortunately, Judiciary Committee Chairman McDuffie has not scheduled either bill for a hearing or vote, although one of the bills has been before the committee for seven months. Other members of the committee also have the authority to request that the bills be considered at a special meeting. Please ask your council members to support these bills and expand compassionate access to D.C.’s program.

Colorado Prosecutor Says Legal Marijuana Causes Majority of State’s Murders

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

While many Colorado officials have come forward over the past few months to declare that legal weed is working better than they ever imagined, some prosecutors across the state believe the legal cannabis industry is responsible for the majority of the state’s murders.

In a recent interview with Fox 31 Denver, Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler said nearly two-thirds of the homicide cases he has overseen in recent years have had a blatant connection to marijuana. This uprising in murder, he said, could be traced back to a legion of small time dope dealers who are slinging the herb on the street with rabid enthusiasm because legal weed has made it easier for the black market to thrive.
