Connecticut Hospice Hopes to Set New Standard for End of Life Patients with Medical Marijuana
The nation’s first hospice center plans to study how medical marijuana can help its dying patients.
Officials at the the Connecticut Hospice in Branford, established in 1974, said on Monday that they are hoping to improve pain management while reducing opioid use in palliative care.
They also want to decrease nausea and vomiting, while improving patients’ appetites and overall well-being.
The focus of this groundbreaking medical marijuana study will be to ease end of life patients’ pain and improve their quality of life, said Dr. Wen-Jen Hwu, professor of medical oncology at the MD Anderson Cancer Center, in a news conference announcing the research.

Homeless Across Country Fall Victim to Synthetic Marijuana
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The nation’s homeless are proving to be especially susceptible to a new, dirt-cheap version of synthetic marijuana, which leaves users glassy-eyed, aimless, sprawled on streets and sidewalks oblivious to their surroundings or wandering into traffic.
Nearly 300 homeless people became ill last month in St. Louis due to the man-made hallucinogen that experts believe is far more dangerous and unpredictable than the real thing. Other outbreaks have occurred in New York City, Los Angeles and Austin, Texas.
“It was common for us to see reactions where they were violent, incoherent, sometimes catatonic on the ground,” Austin police Lt. Kurt Thomas said.
Berry White (Hybrid)
Berry White is a cross of BlueBerry x White Widow. The effects start off all cerebral with a mixture of warm, tingly fuzziness combined with light pressure. Before you break them open, the buds have a nice fruity fragrance. Once you break the buds open you get a massive whiff of a sour berry smell. This strain could be very good for those who suffer from migraines and also good for muscle spasms and restlessleg syndrome.
