'Hangover' effects the morning after marijuana smoking

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, January, 2nd 2012 by THCFinder

Ever get a weed hangover? Well apparently you just might be getting one and not even know about it...

Thirteen male marijuana smokers participated in a study to determine whether marijuana smoked in the evening would result in measurable subjective or other behavioral effects the following morning.

Subjects smoked either active (2.9% delta 9THC) or placebo (0.0% delta 9THC) marijuana cigarettes according to a standardized smoking regimen. Smoke inhalation was monitored by measuring expired air carbon monoxide (CO) levels before and after smoking.

Acutely, active marijuana produced significant changes in heart rate, CO level, various measures of subjective effects, and behavioral tasks of card sorting, free recall and time production. When the test battery was repeated the following morning (approx. 9 h after smoking), significant changes were observed on two subjective effects scales and on the time production task after active, but not placebo, marijuana.

These apparent 'hangover' effects were different from the acute effects of marijuana. The findings suggest that marijuana smoking can produce residual (hangover) effects the day after smoking. The precise nature and extent of these effects, as well as their practical implications, remain to be determined.

Do you consider marijuana riskier than alcohol or tobacco?

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, December, 22nd 2011 by THCFinder
More than half of British Columbians believe marijuana use is less harmful than alcohol use, according to a new Angus Reid Poll.
    
Of the poll's 800 respondents, 59 per cent said they believe regular marijuana use is less harmful than regular alcohol use. It also found that 54 per cent believe marijuana is neither dangerous nor addictive. Moreover, 51 per cent said they do not think marijuana is a gateway drug that could lead to the use of other dangerous drugs like heroin.
 
The poll was commissioned by Stop the Violence BC, an advocacy group for the legalization of marijuana, with a focus on "broadening the public's understanding of the link between cannabis prohibition and gang violence."
 
The poll results coincide with another report that found funding for anti-marijuana law enforcement in both Canada and the United States has failed to decrease the marijuana supply.
 
According to the report, also released by Stop the Violence BC, at least $260 million has been spent in anti-drug efforts since 2007, but there has nonetheless been a 70 per cent increase in arrests for cannabis-related offenses.
 
Dr. Evan Wood, founder of Stop the Violence BC, also said that B.C. youth currently has easier access to marijuana than to tobacco and alcohol.
 
When we asked the CBC Community "Should marijuana be legalized?" in an unscientific survey, 90 per cent of over 25,000 responses answered "Yes."
