The NFL Bans Synthetic Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

The National Football League has updated its drug policy to include synthetic marijuana as a banned substance. The decision to begin testing for synthetic pot—commonly known as K2 or Spice—was arrived at during an annual drug and steroid policy negotiation between the NFL and the Players Association. Synthetic marijuana joins cocaine, PCP, cannabis, opiates, opioids, MDMA and amphetamines on the NFL’s standard drug testing panel.

Two high profile incidents involving NFL players and synthetic marijuana might have led to the current policy change. Last October, former Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman admitted to smoking “Spice” prior to a hit and run car accident that left the other driver with a broken collar bone. In January, former New England Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones was briefly hospitalized after a bad reaction to synthetic weed caused him to wander to a police station shirtless and disoriented.

EATON, N.Y. (AP) — A lush field of cannabis growing on a secluded hilltop in central New York may look and smell like marijuana, but its myriad uses don’t include getting high.

New York’s first legal hemp farm in decades has taken root under a pilot program that’s part of a national resurgence of a plant that’s prized for making food, clothing and shelter but long banned along with its smokable cousin.

“The versatility of this crop is amazing,” said JD Farms co-owner Mark Justh, who left an international finance career to grow organic hay and pastured beef cattle and pigs on farmland 170 miles northwest of New York City. He added organic hemp to the mix this summer under a research partnership with Morrisville State College.

Legalizing Medical Cannabis Increases Workplace Participation Among those 50 and Older

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, October, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

The legalization of medical cannabis increases workplace participation among those aged 50 and older. This is according to a study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

According to the research, “health improvements experienced by both groups (older men and women) permit increased participation in the labor market”, which led to a “9.4 percent increase in the probability of employment and a 4.6 percent to 4.9 percent increase in hours worked per week”.

The paper – titled The impact of medical marijuana laws on the labor supply and health of older adults: Evidence from the Health and Retirement Study – concludes by stating that; “Medical marijuana law implementation leads to increases in labor supply among older adult men and women”, and that “These effects should be considered as policymakers determine how best to regulate access to medical marijuana.”
