Why is Big Pharma Funding the Fight Against Legal Weed?

Category: News | Posted on Mon, September, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

A prescription drug company just got caught making a massive donation to oppose legalizing marijuana in Arizona.

A massive cash donation from a prescription drug company to fight against marijuana legalization has cannabis activists charging that Big Pharma has it in for legal pot.

This fall Arizona will be one of five states voting to legalize recreational marijuana, and campaign finance reports recently revealed that the pharmaceutical company Insys Therapeutics has donated $500,000 to Arizonans For Responsible Drug Policy, the primary group fighting a recreational marijuana legalization measure in the state.

Typically the face of such campaigns have been religious conservatives or tough-on-crime politicians, but as medical marijuana has begun to take a bite out prescription drug sales, those with financial skin in the medicine game have begun to take a more public role in keeping pot illegal.

Radical Rant: 60 Days to Marijuana Election Night 2016

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, September, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

Can you believe we are just 60 days away from the 2016 election? Never before has there been so much marijuana on the ballot to cover—believe me, I know!

In 2010, I inaugurated my Marijuana Election Night™ coverage on “NORML SHOW LIVE,” the live podcast I produced for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws from 2008-2012. California had Proposition 19 on the ballot to legalize marijuana. I was joined by my co-host, Karri Gallaugher, and my friend, Jason “RoLLaJaY” Rivera, at Oakland’s Oaksterdam University.

We streamed live from the campaign headquarters all throughout the day. Karri went to the street to interview the No on Prop 19 protestors who had gathered outside, inaugurating the “Stoners Against Legalization” phenomenon I’ve reported on ever since.

Study Finds Cannabis Use Linked to Lower Body Mass Index

Category: Tokers | Posted on Sun, September, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

According to a new study published this month in the Journal of Mental Health Policy and Economics, and published online by the U.S.National Institute of Health, cannabis use is associated with a lower body mass index (BMI).

Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Adolescent Health, researchers estimated “fixed-effects models to more rigorously study the relationships between marijuana use and body mass index over time.” Their analyses include “numerous sensitivity tests using alternative estimation techniques and at Wave IV we investigate the relationship between marijuana use and an alternative measure of body size (waist circumference).”

According to researchers; “Results show that daily female marijuana users have a BMI that is approximately 3.1% (p<0.01) lower than that of non-users, whereas daily male users have a BMI that is approximately 2.7% (p<0.01) lower than that of non-users.”
