Most Anti-Pot Claims Supported by Weak Science

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 14th 2015 by THCFinder

The majority of the anti-pot claims that pop up in your newsfeed on a daily basis, like marijuana is as addictive as heroin, or that weed causes lower IQ points, are supported by weak science, according to a new report released by the International Centre for Science in Drug Policy.

In the study entitled “State of Evidence: Cannabis Use and Regulation,” researchers paint a comprehensive portrait of the most common claims made in regards to cannabis use and the power of their supporting evidence. 

Interestingly, researchers found that most of these declarations are cherry picked in a manner intended to bamboozle the public – contributing to policies supposedly drafted in the interest of public safety that are rooted in misinformation.

Researchers say that claims about marijuana often “confuse correlation and causation,” and that just because “scientific evidence may find associations between two events, this does not indicate that one necessarily caused the other.”

Marijuana Users Should Be Outraged Over This New Dangerous Trend

Category: News | Posted on Thu, August, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

Let’s be clear about this. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), “Synthetic marijuana is a designer drug that does not contain marijuana but rather contains any of a variety of plants sprayed with laboratory-produced chemicals.”

Known by various names, including synthetic cannabinoids, Spice, K2, Black Mamba and Crazy Clown, these drugs are responsible for an increasing number of harmful and dangerous reactions.  

“The most commonly reported adverse health effects associated with synthetic cannabinoid use were agitation, tachycardia [elevated heart rate], drowsiness or lethargy, vomiting, and confusion,” the CDC reports.

These drugs have become popular because consumers have been duped into thinking they are a legal form of marijuana. Often sold over the counter as herbal products, many forms of these chemical-laced products have been banned. Nonetheless, they remain available in the illicit market and in some legal forms due to different chemical compositions.

Marijuana users should be outraged over this slanderous and fraudulent reference to the cannabis plant. These drugs do not contain cannabinoids, natural or synthetic, and are in no way related to marijuana and/or the cannabis plant.

mint chocolate chip cookies marijuanaToday, the Colorado Cannabis Chamber of Commerce urged against a culture of dangerous potential overregulation of legal cannabis edibles in Colorado.

At the HB13-1361 and HB14-1366 Work Group Meeting on August 11, the Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) of the Department of Revenue (DOR) discussed with various stakeholders the creation of new rules surrounding all edible cannabis products.

The Chamber also stands behind the consensus at the meeting regarding standard measurement procedures and the need for public education to always be the number one priority.

However, many proposed new regulations on edible products could create a strong negative impact not only on legal, licensed, compliant marijuana business throughout Colorado, but also on public safety for adults and children alike.

“The more we encourage overregulation, the more we risk pushing marijuana activity back onto the black market and into home kitchens without oversight or any regulation whatsoever,” said Tyler Henson, President of the Cannabis Chamber.
