Legalizing Medical Cannabis Increases Workplace Participation Among those 50 and Older

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, October, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

The legalization of medical cannabis increases workplace participation among those aged 50 and older. This is according to a study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

According to the research, “health improvements experienced by both groups (older men and women) permit increased participation in the labor market”, which led to a “9.4 percent increase in the probability of employment and a 4.6 percent to 4.9 percent increase in hours worked per week”.

The paper – titled The impact of medical marijuana laws on the labor supply and health of older adults: Evidence from the Health and Retirement Study – concludes by stating that; “Medical marijuana law implementation leads to increases in labor supply among older adult men and women”, and that “These effects should be considered as policymakers determine how best to regulate access to medical marijuana.”

New Report: 1 Pot Arrest Occurs Every 49 Seconds

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

Despite the fact that medical marijuana is now legal in 25 U.S. states and weed legalization is on a tear across the land, the FBI recently released its Uniform Crime Report revealing that one person still gets arrested for weed possession every 49 seconds.

The FBI report shows that of the 1.5 million drug busts in 2015, nearly 39 percent were for weed (more than 600,000); heroine arrests were barely 19 percent, and coke only five percent.

While the number of pot possession arrests in 2015 was the lowest since 1996—and certainly a drop from 2007 when arrests peaked at nearly 800,000—these numbers still seem way too high, especially knowing what we know about cannabis.

Cannabis: A Future in Treating Cervical Cancer?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, October, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

Recent research from South Africa has highlighted the potential cannabis has to treat cervical cancer, a disease that kills over a quarter of a million women annually. This latest study was not conducted on humans, but is the first of it’s kind and shows promising results.

Cervical cancer used to be the leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States, but those rates have gone down by almost 50 percent due to the widespread use of the Pap test for cervical cancer. In South Africa, however, over 80 percent of the population still relies on medicinal plants, which begs the question: do these women have the same access to the Pap test as American women do? Not likely.
