Marijuana May Make Us Thinner, Even with the Munchies

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
getting-thinnerIt sounds counter-intuitive, but marijuana may help people be thinner. The illegal drug known for causing the munchies was at the heart of a recent study (published in May's Journal of American Medicine) that examined its effect on metabolic processes. The results, though certainly not conclusive, show a correlation between smaller waist circumference and marijuana use. Not only were users thinner, but they also appeared to be healthier overall than those who have never used marijuana. 
 
 In the study, comprising of more than 4,600 people, 12 percent of participants said they were current marijuana users and 42 percent had used it in the past, but not in the last month. Scientists assessed waist circumference and other weight-related factors in all participants. Studies conducted before this one had shown that marijuana users had lower prevalence for diabetes and obesity. However, this was the first study to also test insulin and glucose levels and insulin resistance in regards to marijuana usage.

Marijuana: Proposed federal bill seeks to give pot businesses banking access

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
potbanking-accessEven though medical marijuana businesses are legal at the state level, they still are illegal under federal law. And while this raises the spectre of federal law enforcement coming down on Colorado businesses, the bigger concern revolves around banking. Since banks are monitored federally, they do not like to do business with enterprises that are not legal on the federal level. This means that the millions of dollars coming in from the marijuana industry in this state are usually coming through cash transactions.
 
Senator Pat Steadman proposed a bill last year in the Colorado Legislature aimed at correcting this growing problem, but it met with no success. And there's been no proposal at all on the federal level -- until now.
 
U.S. Representatives Ed Perlmutter (who represents Colorado's seventh district) and Denny Heck (Washington), along with a bipartisan group of sixteen other Republicans and Democrats (a complete list is at the bottom of this post), submitted a bill this morning to update federal banking rules.
 
"We need to address the public safety, crime and lost tax revenue associated when these legal and regulated businesses are operating in a cash-only system," Perlmutter said in a release. "We also need to provide financial institutions assurance that they can make their own business decisions related to legal, financial transactions without fear of regulatory penalties or criminal prosecution."
