Colorado Moves to Eliminate Black-Market Internet Pot Ads

DENVER (AP) — Weed on Craigslist? It is widely for sale in Colorado, but legislation moving through the state Legislature aims to crack down on those who sell marijuana illegally using online ads.

The Joint Blog took note of a study published in the European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery that examined the results of 302 lung transplants over a six-year period. Medical researchers at the UK’s largest lung-health institution—part of the country’s publicly funded National Health Service, cough-cough single-payer healthcare, cough-cough—found that there was no appreciable difference in short and medium-term outcomes between the 19 donors who had smoked weed and the 283 that hadn’t.
