New Report Finds Most Cannabis Treatment Is Court Ordered

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 8th 2015 by THCFinder

It is not uncommon for the opposing forces of marijuana legalization to use rehabilitation rates as ammunition to suggest that the end of prohibition would bring forth an increasing legion of pot junkies. However, some of the latest evidence surrounding drug treatment for cannabis addiction shows that the majority of the people involved with these types of programs have been court ordered and are not trying to rid themselves of stoner demons by their own volition.

recent study from Uncle Sam’s Department of Health & Human Services indicates that over half the people who undergo treatment programs to remove the dreaded marijuana monkey from their backs are only doing so because the criminal justice system gave them the option of rehab or jail.

Want to take a bite out of the American obesity epidemic? Legalize medical marijuana.

That's the counterintuitive finding of a new study in the journal Health Economics. Researchers from San Diego State University and Cornell University found that at the state level, passing a medical marijuana law (MML) "is associated with a 2 percent to 6 percent decline in the probability of obesity." Over the longer term, this effect could be even larger. Tally it all up and according to the study's authors, "we estimate a back-of-the-envelopeper-person reduction in MML-induced obesity related medical costs of $58 to$115 per year."

Taken at face value this doesn't exactly make sense: Marijuana is a well-known appetite stimulant. Smoke a joint, and before you know it you're reaching for the Funyuns. Or, as the study's authors put it in reseacher-ese: "randomized control trials provide evidence that marijuana use leads to increased appetite and caloric intake."
