Drexel University receives NIH grant to study medical marijuana use among LA young adults

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 16th 2013 by THCFinder
grant-to-study-mmjDrexel University has received a grant for a five-year study of medical marijuana and its impact on drug use and physical and psychological health among young adults in Los Angeles. It is the first large-scale NIH project funded to directly investigate medical marijuana use among young adults aged 18 to 26.
 
The study, "Medical Marijuana, Emerging Adults & Community: Connecting Health and Policy," is being led by Dr. Stephen Lankenau, an associate professor in Drexel's School of Public Health, who was awarded an R01 grant from the National Institutes of Health for $3.3 million over five years, beginning July 1. Ultimately, Lankenau hopes the study's findings can guide medical marijuana policies at local, state and national levels to result in the most positive health outcomes for young adults and communities.
 
Lankenau aims to determine the impact of medical marijuana policies in Los Angeles on young adults' physical and psychological health. A core focus is understanding the significance and influence of dispensaries - storefronts that sell medical marijuana - on health.
 
"Dispensaries are a relatively new and unusual institution, and they haven't been studied much," Lankenau said. One study hypothesis is that dispensaries, which often provide social support in addition to medical marijuana, may provide the basis for better physical and psychological outcomes for medical marijuana users, compared to non-medical users who purchase the drug on the black market.
 
The study emerged out of preliminary findings from an earlier NIH-funded project, which examined non-medical prescription drug use among high-risk young adults in two cities. Among Los Angeles participants, Lankenau observed key differences in patterns of drug use and health between those who had a physician recommendation for medical marijuana, and those who used marijuana without a recommendation.

Portland voters to decide whether to legalize marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, July, 16th 2013 by THCFinder
portland-votersmmjPORTLAND — Proponents of legalizing the recreational use of marijuana in Maine’s largest city evoked the controversial George Zimmerman verdict during a Monday news conference in Portland and said laws against pot are used to unfairly target blacks.
 
“Our justice system is failing us,” said Regina Phillips, an executive board member of the Maine NAACP, during the event. “It does not treat people equally.”
 
The news conference was held to rally support for a proposed ordinance change that would decriminalize possession of the drug in Portland just hours before the city council effectively voted to place the ordinance amendment on the Nov. 5 citywide ballot.
 
Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch coordinator, was found not guilty of murder last week in the Feb. 26, 2012, shooting death of black teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida. The high-profile case has been been protested by many civil rights groups as an example of racial inequality, first because Zimmerman was not initially charged in the shooting, and subsequently after a jury found him not guilty.
 
Zimmerman claimed self-defense in the case, but critics have pointed to the fact that Martin was unarmed and that police subsequently reported that there was no indication the teen was involved in criminal activity at the time of the shooting.
 
On Monday, legalization advocates recalled the flashpoint case and said the enforcement of anti-marijuana laws is another illustration of the criminal justice system targeting blacks.
