Tests for Driving While Impaired by Marijuana Have No Scientific Basis AAA Study Says

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

Six states that allow marijuana use have legal tests to determine driving while impaired by the drug that have no scientific basis, according to a study by the nation's largest automobile club that calls for scrapping those laws.

The study commissioned by AAA's safety foundation said it's not possible to set a blood-test threshold for THC, the chemical in marijuana that makes people high, that can reliably determine impairment. Yet the laws in five of the six states automatically presume a driver guilty if that person tests higher than the limit, and not guilty if it's lower.

As a result, drivers who are unsafe may be going free while others may be wrongly convicted, the foundation said.

“Cannabis Saved My Life” Says Ex-NHL Enforcer Larry DePalma

While music thumps and people laugh in the background, tough guy Larry DePalma talks about how he tried to kill himself several times since leaving the National Hockey League in a new video called, “Cannabis and Concussion.”

In the YouTube video, DePalma, who played professional hockey for teams in San Jose, Pittsburgh and Minnesota, lays out the facts of his traumatic brain injuries and how the medical use of marijuana stopped him from thoughts of suicide and halted his addictions to alcohol and pain pills. He joins fellow Detroit Red Wing, Darren McCarty, in supporting the current medical marijuana system while also advocating for the legalization measure offered by the MILegalize organization in Michigan. DePalma’s interview was taped during one of the MILegalize fundraisers in Detroit.

DePalma and McCarty had reputations as enforcers on the ice, and both men still look like they could put Claude Lemieux face down in the face-off circle with a single punch. McCarty was famed in Detroit as a member of the Grind Line; DePalma is featured onHockeyfights.com with an amazing 12 notable fights in a single year while he skated for the Minnesota North Stars.

In the video DePalma explains how he suffered “eight major concussions” and numerous minor ones during his 11-year hockey career; he has been diagnosed with Traumatic Brain Injury and CTE, another head injury. In a 2012 video for a treatment program, DePalma explained the severity of these injuries.

Ohio House Passes Medical Marijuana Bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, May, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

The Ohio House of Representatives passed a medical marijuana bill Tuesday, sending the proposal to the Senate for a final vote. Ohio officials have said they expect the legislature to enact the law by the end of the month, and the program to be up and running in two years.

The bill gives a commission two years to come up with licensing rules and distribution regulations, and does not allow the smoking of medical marijuana.  

Despite the legislature’s apparent plan to legalize medical marijuana, activists working to put their own proposal on the November ballot say lawmakers’ plan is too restrictive.
