Study Finds Marijuana Grow Operations Do Not Significantly Affect Child Development
Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, July, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
A new study found that the health of children is not significantly affected by living in houses where marijuana is grown, a conclusion that challenges current child care policies.
The University of British Columbia study examined the effects of living in cannabis grow operations on about 180 children and did not find significant differences between the children living with marijuana and the children in a controlled setting, according to The Weed Blog.
The study aimed to analyze the merit of the laws that enable child protection services to strip parents of their children, founded in the belief that the presence of marijuana can harm a child’s health, according to the International Journal of Drug Policy.
Parents have lost custody of their children — both temporarily and permanently — because of contemporary marijuana laws relating to child care, according to the Daily Mail.
Some parents and marijuana rights advocates have claimed that even the possession of small quantities of weed have allowed law enforcement officials to move children to foster care and to entangle parents into child-neglect cases, according to the New York Times.
Advocates have said parents who lose their children to foster care for different time periods sometimes face no criminal charges for possession, just those for child neglect.

ANAHEIM – Courier services were immediately banned from delivering medical-marijuana to prescription holders living in Anaheim, under a so-called urgency ordinance unanimously adopted Tuesday night without discussion by the City Council.
Medical-marijuana dispensaries moved their businesses to the streets after the state Supreme Court ruled in May that cities and counties can ban storefront operations, despite a statewide ballot measure that legalized the practice 17 years ago.

Anaheim's City Council prohibited dispensaries from operating in 2007, but waited for the court ruling .
