Legalized Medical Marijuana Doesn't Increase Teen Usage, Study Finds

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, June, 16th 2015 by THCFinder

One of the biggest worries about legalized medical marijuana was that teenagers would smoke more pot, but it turns out those fears were wrong. A study just published in The Lancet Psychiatry showed no significant difference in adolescent marijuana use in the 21 states with medical marijuana laws.

 

This exhaustive study using over 24 years of data from over a million teenagers in 48 states found no evidence that legalized medical marijuana led to teenagers using pot more. Deborah Hasin, Professor of Epidemiology at Columbia University Medical Center in New York, reviewed data on teenagers between the ages of 13-18 and during the years 1991-2014. “Our findings provide the strongest evidence to date that marijuana use by teenagers does not increase after a state legalizes medical marijuana. Rather, up to now, in the states that passed medical marijuana laws, adolescent marijuana use was already higher than in other states. Because early adolescent use of marijuana can lead to many long term harmful outcomes, identifying the factors that actually play a role in adolescent use should be a high priority,” said Dr. Hasin.

Colorado Supreme Court: Employees Can Be Fired For Marijuana Use, Even Medical, Even If Off The Clock

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, June, 16th 2015 by THCFinder

fired marijuana jobA fear that many marijuana consumers have to live with is the fear of being fired from their job for marijuana. That fear is very real, even for medical marijuana patients who only use medical marijuana while off the clock in the privacy of their own homes. It’s a fear that I have had to live with throughout my adult life. A lot of people e-mail me asking if they can be fired for using legal marijuana, both medical and recreational. Each time I have to give them the sad news that yes, you can be fired for using legal marijuana, at least according to case law. There have been a handful of legal challenges to the firings, and every single time those challenges lose in court.

Today there was another case that was ruled in favor of the employer, this time in Colorado. PerThe Denver Channel:

The Colorado Supreme Court issued a ruling Monday affirming a lower court’s decision to uphold the firing of an employee for using medical marijuana off-duty.

“Employees who engage in an activity such as medical marijuana use that is permitted by state law but unlawful under federal law are not protected by the (lawful activities statute),” the justices concluded.

The case involved 35-year-old Brandon Coats, a quadriplegic medical marijuana patient who was fired from his job at the Dish Network after failing a drug test in 2010. Coats said he needed the drug to help with violent spasms and seizures he has suffered since he was paralyzed from the chest down in a car accident.

Cops Eat Pot Brownies, Make Fun of Disabled Patient During Santa Ana Raid

Category: News | Posted on Tue, June, 16th 2015 by THCFinder

Last month, a gang of masked police officers from Santa Ana, California stormed into a neighborhood medical marijuana dispensary. Then, after disconnecting the video surveillance system positioned throughout the dispensary, officers unleashed a disgusting fury against the business, even suggesting violence against a disabled patient—all under the assumption that there would be novideo evidence of their behavior. 

However, the cops overlooked a single camera—a proverbial nail in their coffin—which appears to reveal police officers consuming marijuana edibles and making jokes about kicking an amputee in her “nub.” The video, which was obtained by OC Weekly, even shows officers playing darts behind the counter of the dispensary during the raid.

Once the cops believe they have successfully managed to disabled all of the security cameras, they gather around the main display counter, laughing, perhaps even daring each other to sample the goods. Then, the footage shows one of the officers shoving what appears to be a pot edible into his mouth before handing something else to a cohort who asks, “What flavor?”

The video hits disturbing heights, however, when a female officer begins to tell her colleagues about how she wanted to kick medical marijuana activist and patient Marla James, an amputee confined to a wheelchair, in her “fucking nub.”
