Teens who smoke marijuana do better in school than cigarette smokers, study shows

Students who smoke marijuana do better in school than their cigarette-smoking classmates, according to a new study.
 
Canadian researchers surveyed nearly 39,000 Ontario students in grades 7, 9, and 11 between 1981 and 2011 on their marijuana and tobacco use and their academic performance.
 
The study found that students who only smoked marijuana performed better in school than students who smoked only cigarettes or those who smoked both cigarettes and marijuana.
 
 
However, the researchers said their findings reflected the fact that fewer teens smoke today compared to 30 years ago.
 
Those students who do currently smoke make up a very “marginalized, vulnerable” population, said the study’s lead author, Michael Chaiton, assistant professor in epidemiology and public health policy at the University of Toronto.
 
“Now there is a distinction between marijuana use and co-use with other substances, and it’s an indication of the changing social norms,” Chaiton said. “So it’s not an absolute that they do better; it’s that social norms have changed and the population of people who use marijuana are more like the general population.”
 
About 92 percent of tobacco users also smoke marijuana, the researchers found, but only 25 percent of marijuana users also smoke cigarettes.
 
When the study began in the 1980s, far more students smoked tobacco than marijuana, which few teens used, but that ratio has reversed in the intervening decades.
 
Researchers said anti-tobacco messages have been effective in cutting smoking rates for young people, but Chaiton said those remaining teen smokers were highly vulnerable to other risky behavior such as vandalism and theft.
 
“This is not that tobacco is causing this, it is something that has changed socially in the role of tobacco in society,” Chaiton said.
 
A recent U.S. study found that smoking, the leading cause of preventable death in the country, was largely a habit of poor or working class Americans.

Study: Medical Marijuana Legalization Doesn't Increase Crime

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, March, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
mj-legalization-doesnt-increase-crimeAn argument that marijuana reform opponents almost always cling to is that legalizing marijuana (recreational and medical) will lead to more crime. It’s an argument that has been used since the dawn of reefer madness. I actually had someone e-mail me recently to tell me that when people smoke marijuana, they will do whatever they can to get more, including assaulting people and robbing them of their money. I had to explain to the person that we are talking about marijuana, not meth. I didn’t receive a response.
 
According to a study released yesterday, legalizing medical marijuana does not increase violent crime. The study was conducted by PLOS One. The study relied on U.S. state panel data, and analyzed the association between state medical marijuana laws and state crime rates collected by the FBI. The concluded the following:
 
Results did not indicate a crime exacerbating effect of medical marijuana laws on any of the Part I offenses. Alternatively, state medical marijuana laws may be correlated with a reduction in homicide and assault rates…
 
I wonder if Kevin Sabet and his friends saw this? It’s going to be very hard for them to try to spin this study in a way that favors their opposition to medical marijuana reform. People like Kevin Sabet want to throw you in rehab for using medical marijuana. That’s going to be a lot harder as the truth continues to slap them in the face.

Long shot: California may yet vote on marijuana legalization in 2014

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, March, 27th 2014 by THCFinder
2014-legal-ca-marijuana
A California initiative that has failed once this year to collect enough signatures to put recreational marijuana on the ballot in November has been resurrected … but its future looks grim.
 
On Monday, California’s Secretary of State approved language for the “Marijuana Legalization. Initiative Statute”:
 
Legalizes under state law marijuana and hemp use, possession, cultivation, transportation, or distribution. Requires case-by-case review for persons currently charged with or convicted of nonviolent marijuana offenses, for possible sentence modification, amnesty, or immediate release from prison, jail, parole, or probation. Requires case-by-case review of applications to erase records of these charges or convictions. Requires Legislature to adopt laws to license and tax commercial marijuana sales. Allows doctors to approve or recommend marijuana for patients, regardless of age. Limits testing for marijuana for employment or insurance purposes. Bars state/local aid to enforce federal marijuana laws.
 
The sponsor of the initiative’s earlier incarnation, Berton Duzy, tried and fail in February to turn in enough signatures. On the California Cannabis Hemp Initiative website, he stated:
 
CCHI did not qualify for the ballot, but is entering a pledge drive phase to attempt to qualify for 2014. CCHI is the legalization vision of Jack Herer and allows more freedom for Cannabis patients, users, and providers than any other proposed law.
 
Taking a cold look at the prospects for this revised version or any of the competing version of legalization initiatives to hit the ballot this year is the LA Weekly:
 
CCHI has nowhere near the $3 million in cash it takes to get professional signature gatherers on the streets. Duzy said the group has less than $100,000 on-hand.
 
“We’ll have to have a million dollars to get it done by paid professionals by April 18, the last day to qualify, the last day to turn in signatures to make it to 2014,” he told us. “If we didn’t raise the money, then we could still try to qualify for 2016.”
 
The last proposed initiative apparently standing, the Marijuana Control, Legalization & Revenue Act, is also looking at April 18, with basically none of that $3 million or so it would take to make the ballot.
 
Backer Dave Hodges told us, “We’re still looking for a miracle.”
