Are Smartphones Keeping Kids Away From Drugs?
Ever since a federal study was published last year showing that teenage drug use is on the decline across the country, researchers have been on a mission to find out exactly what has caused America’s youth to lose interest in the feel good effects of illicit substances.
According to a recent report from the New York Times, some of those scientific minds have formulated a theory, one that suggests that teens may not be doing as many drugs these days because they are too preoccupied with their smartphones and other electronic devices.
Indeed, while it may sound utterly ridiculous to consider that smartphones are what is keeping a growing number of teenagers on a sober path, it is a concept that Nora Volkow, the director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, does not believe is too far fetched.
Denver Mayor: Marijuana Legalization Has Been Good
Like most leaders of big cities in states where voters did not go for Donald Trump, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock has a lot to lose.
Denver’s population is one-third Latino, with as possibly as many as 130,000 undocumented immigrants in the greater Denver metro area. Following ICE raids in other metro areas in February, fears of mass immigration raids are so palpable that Hancock has had to spend time reassuring residents that even though Denver is not a sanctuary city, immigrants and their families can go about their lives feeling safe (even as Hancock himself admits he has no idea what Trump and his gang of documented ideologues plan to do, even as they telegraph their xenophobic intentions).
Hancock is also mayor of America’s current capital for legal adult-use marijuana. Cannabis rescued Denver’s real-estate sector, cannabis is keeping cities in the Denver area solvent, cannabis is keeping people employed and also competitive in a tightening housing market.
Death Star (Indica)
Sour Diesel cross with Sensi Star, Death Stars effects are a building pressure in the eyes and around the back of the head and temples to start off, with an increase in heart rate and some perspiration happening at times. The body started buzzing early on and this keeps up throughout the experience, though it turns to more of a warming feeling as it goes on.
