Pot use, abuse more likely in states with medical marijuana laws, study shows

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, April, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

DENVER — People living in states with legalized medical marijuana are more likely to use and abuse cannabis than people living in states where pot remains completely illegal, says a new study that cautions policymakers.

Sixty-four percent of Americans now live in states permitting medical marijuana use for a variety of conditions, from chronic pain to PTSD. That includes the newest state, West Virginia, which approved a legalization plan on April 19. An estimated 205 million Americans can now seek a recommendation from a doctor to use marijuana despite it remaining illegal at the federal level.

The study, published online Wednesday in JAMA Psychiatry, says marijuana use by people without a doctor’s note increased in states with medical marijuana laws from 2001-2013, as did the number of people considered to have a marijuana use disorder. While most people who use marijuana suffer no ill effects from casual use, heavy users can become dependent, and some people can experience psychosis, according to emergency room doctors and drug treatment experts.

What Really Needs to Happen for Marijuana to Be Made Fully Legal Nationwide?

Category: News | Posted on Sun, April, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

In theory, the process of getting a marijuana bill passed into law is relatively simple; it involves a handful of meetings, votes and ultimately final approval from the President of the United States. Anyone who has ever seen the old School House Rock segment “I’m Just a Bill” has a basic understanding of the legislative grind, but the reality is many complicated variables must fall into place for any bill to prove successful.

Pot Companies and Consumers Connect at Farmers Market

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, April, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

Cultivators and makers of concentrates and other marijuana products had direct access to their customers at the San Diego Cannabis Farmers Market. The event was held outdoors at a Four Points by Sheraton hotel in California’s second largest city.

In order to comply with current regulations, a doctor’s medical marijuana recommendation was required for entry, but it was evident the crowd was also eager to celebrate recreational use with the passage of Prop. 64, as a party atmosphere prevailed.

It didn’t take shoppers long to get in the right frame of mind, with free hits and dabs available at every turn. The reggae rhythms were dropped down only long enough for special events, such as giveaways and competitions.
