Iceland Figured Out How to Stop Teen Drug Substance Abuse—Can the Rest of the World to Do the Same?

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

In Iceland, teenage smoking, drinking and drug use have been radically cut in the past 20 years. Emma Young, of Mosaic Science, writes how they did it, and why other countries won’t follow suit. An abridged version of that article was written for HIGH TIMES by Maureen Meehan.

Twenty years ago Icelandic teens were among the heaviest-drinking youths in Europe. Today, it is exactly the opposite.

Oregon rakes in $60 million in state sales taxes from marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 22nd 2017 by THCFinder

Recreational marijuana sales in Oregon produced $60.2 million in state tax ­revenue in 2016, the first year of state-taxed pot sales.
