Can Medical Marijuana Help Aging Parents' Insomnia?
If an aging loved one in your life complains about not being able to sleep well, that older person is not alone. According to a , 39% of older people were likely to say they wake up a lot during the night. My mother in law, Alice, now 95, is one of them. For the entire time I have known her, over three decades, she has complained of insomnia. She reported trying every kind of remedy out there: prescription sleeping pills, over the counter aids, herbal concoctions, etc. Consistently, she said none of them worked. She could sometimes fall asleep but could not stay asleep.
Her family thought it was time for her to try marijuana. Living in California where medical use of marijuana has been legal for years, it was not much trouble to get a doctor's recommendation. It was done by video conference with an M.D. He asked Alice some good questions, discussed what products might work and recommended a specific type of weed in elixir form. She was not looking to get high. She just wanted to stay asleep for the night. She was all in favor of trying something new. We got the drops the doctor recommended for her.
Alaska Regulators to Hear Comments on Onsite Pot Use
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — State regulators plan to take comment through Oct. 27 on a proposal that would allow authorized retail marijuana shops in Alaska to provide a place for people to consume cannabis products they buy.
Alaska’s Marijuana Control Board has gone back and forth on the onsite consumption issue.
But it agreed last month to once again advance for comment draft rules for allowing onsite use. The formal notice of the proposed rules and the comment period came out this week.

Prices Shoot Up 200 Percent in Nevada as Weed Flies off the Shelves
When legal weed sales went into effect on July 1, the excitement was palpable. Now, weed shortages and spiked up prices are also becoming palpable, verging on untenable.
Between distribution issues and much larger than expected sales, dispensaries and producers alike are freaking out; there’s not enough weed to go around, aggravated by the fact that there are only two distributors for retails outlets. Serious understaffing.
The market simply cannot keep up with the demand, which as we learned in Econ 101, has resulted in an increase in the price of marijuana—a 200 percent increase in just one month.
