University Of Colorado Launching Marijuana And Pregnancy Study

Marijuana PregnantThere are not a lot of studies out there that deal with marijuana and pregnancy. It’s a very touchy subject. However, it’s something that definitely occurs, and I think that it would be better to take an objective approach to the issue instead of trying to keep it taboo like many cannabis opponents would prefer. There are a lot of unfounded claims on anti-cannabis websites ran by cannabis opponents. Whenever someone looks for something more objective, most roads lead back to astudy that was conducted in 1991 that looked at Jamaican children who had mothers that consumed marijuana during pregnancy. The abstract of that study is below:

This research provides data on the development of 59 Jamaican children, from birth to age 5 years, whose mothers used marijuana during pregnancy. Approximately one-half of the sample used marijuana during pregnancy and were matched with non-users according to age, parity, and socioeconomic status. Testing of the children was done at 1, 3, and 30 days of age with the Brazelton Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scales and at ages 4 and 5 years with the McCarthy Scales of Children’s Abilities. Data about the child’s home environment and temperament were collected from direct observations as well as from standardized questionnaires. The results show no significant differences in developmental testing outcomes between children of marijuana-using and non-using mothers except at 30 days of age when the babies of users had more favourable scores on two clusters of the Brazelton Scales: autonomic stability and reflexes. The developmental scores at ages 4 and 5 years were significantly correlated to certain aspects of the home environment and to regularity of basic school (preschool) attendance.

Legal Hemp Production Making a Comeback after 80 Year Ban

Category: News | Posted on Sun, March, 13th 2016 by THCFinder

It has been eight decades since U.S. drug laws made growing hemp in American soil illegal. 

Today barely one percent of Americans are farming hemp. Before it was prohibited in 1937, that number was 30 percent and our hemp was consider among the best in the world.  

Hemp is finally beginning to make a comeback after President Obama signed a provision in the 2014 farm bill that removed hemp grown for research purposes from the Controlled Substances Act. 

Many are finally recognizing that hemp can help restore our agricultural economy, have a positive impact on climate change and help our struggling farmers. According to a report in the LA Times,Canada already knew that and is raking in a billion a year on its hemp production.

Study: Marijuana’s Influence On Driving Performance Differs Significantly From That Of Alcohol

Category: News | Posted on Sat, March, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

By Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director

Cannabis-influenced driving performance is significantly different from alcohol-induced driving behavior, according to driving simulator data published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology.

Investigators with the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the University of Iowa evaluated simulated driving performance in subjects following their consumption of vaporized cannabis, alcohol, or placebo.

Researchers reported that cannabis administration was associated compensatory driving behavior, such as decreased mean speed and increased mean following distance, whereas alcohol administration was associated with faster driving. Their findings are similar to those of other driving studies, like those here and here.

Investigators also reported that cannabis dosing in combination with low quantities of alcohol “mitigated drivers’ tendency to drive faster with alcohol” – a finding that contrasts with prior data acknowledging that the two substances combined typically possess an additive adverse effecton psychomotor performance.
