New Medical Marijuana Study on Executive Functioning Lauded as First of Its Kind

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, November, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

There are already over 1.2 million medical marijuana users in the United States who seek treatment for a variety of debilitating symptoms from pain to epilepsy. That number may grow on Tuesday when voters in a number of states will decide whether or not to legalize marijuana possession for medicinal purposes. This may feel like a modern-day issue, where generations of Americans are afforded legal access to medical marijuana for the first time. And beyond legalization, this move may validate marijuana’s medicinal utility to many individuals.

But of course, this is not a new idea.

From 1851 to 1942, marijuana was included in the U.S. Pharmacopeia, which identified and standardized the identity, strength and quality of medicines. Regular submissions detailing the medicinal utility of marijuana were made until pressure from the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (an early predecessor of the DEA) forced its omission. Then, all was quiet.

Why Marijuana DUIs are a Problem Right Now (For You)

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

Far from being the ideal companion for a long road trip, cannabis is currently one of the least-best friend for motorists—and will remain to be regardless of what happens with the recreational-marijuana legalization measures on the ballot in five states tomorrow.

Like it or not, stoned driving is a thing. Those neat studies that show stoned drivers are safer than drunk drivers are indeed neat, but for the moment, they don’t matter. (As it is, a lot of things are better than a drunk driver—which doesn’t necessarily make them great.)

Police and prohibitionists like to point to a study, conducted by our friends at the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, that revealed a big jump in the number of drivers involved in fatal crashes testing positive for marijuana in Washington state.

New Study Suggests Cannabis Improves Night Vision

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, November, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

As we all know, weed can have some strange effects on our minds and bodies. New research now suggests an added benefit we could all use—better night vision.

This theory is not totally new but proof has been lacking.

Twenty-five years ago, a pharmacologist at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica noted that a local fisherman who smoked weed and drank rum made from cannabis leaves and stems seemed to have “an uncanny ability to see in the dark.” And back in 2002, a team of researchers from the U.S. and Spain set out to confirm rumors that Moroccan fishermen and people living in rural mountain areas who smoked hash had an extraordinary ability to visibly see objects in the near dark.
