New Study Shows Pot Can Help Kick Tobacco and Other Habits
Canada recently concluded a study on the benefits of medical marijuana and found that it was not only effective in pain management but that it also helped overcome addiction to more harmful vices.
The study, published in the International Journal of Drug Policy, found that marijuana use can diminish a user’s dependency on tobacco, alcohol and, in some cases, painkillers.
The researchers said this study was the first comprehensive survey of patients enrolled in Canada’s MMJ program.
The study, which involved 271 participants, is also viewed as one of the first major studies to make the connection between cannabis and substance addiction.

New Coalition Wants to Protect Workers From Being Fired Over Marijuana
Over half the nation has now legalized the leaf for medicinal and/or recreational purposes, putting millions of working class citizens in a position to consume the herb without any legal repercussions.

It is for that reason there is now a push in legal marijuana states to pass protections for employees that feel threatened by no-tolerance drug policies. The national marijuana legalization advocacy group NORML is said to be spearheading these efforts in a number of jurisdictions, which it hopes will pave the way to new laws that prevent workers from being sent to the unemployment line for simply using a substance that has been deemed legal in the eyes of the state.
