Florida Cops Take Softer Stance on Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, September, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

Law enforcement officials in Florida are not nearly as opposed to medical marijuana as they were back in 2014, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

Although many police groups remain against the idea of legalizing marijuana for medical use in the Sunshine State, a shift in public opinion has allowed some of these law-fighters to calm down a little with respect to the issue.

But make no mistake about it—none of these cops are prepared to come out in support of legalization.

What’s Really to Blame in Those Studies That Link Marijuana to Pregnancy Problems

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, September, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

A new “study of studies” in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology drills down on the data behind claims that marijuana can cause adverse affects on pregnant women and their unborn children.

The verdict: Tobacco did it.

Researchers from Washington University conducted a detailed analysis of more than 30 studies to ascertain whether marijuana use can cause low birth weight or premature delivery.

Although lead researcher Dr. Shayna Conner and her colleagues initially discovered that women who smoked marijuana while pregnant did have an increased risk for such problems, they also found that once a mother’s tobacco use was entered into the equation the relationship vanished.

Stoners Are Thinner: Science Says Smoking Weed Is Linked to Lower BMI

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

For anyone who has had to fend off the inevitable or uncontrollable munchies, it is not easy to believe that regular pot smoking is actually linked to being thin.

How is this good news possible?

Researchers from the University of Miami, who published their findings in the Journal of Mental Health Policy and Economics, say they found pot smokers had a generally lower body mass index (BMI)—a measure of body fat based on height and weigh—than those who don’t.

Research Conflicted When It Comes to Marijuana and Brain Function

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, September, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

With voters in five states preparing to hit the polls this November to decide whether marijuana should be made legal—putting the United States in the position of possibly having more legal marijuana states than not—some reports have suggested that one of the biggest concerns right now is how all of this legal weed will impact the overall intelligence of the great American populous.

It seems that since federal government has remained hell bent throughout the years in refusing to allow any significant research to take place to study the therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plant, there are still those people out there who are convinced that the consumption of cannabis could have negative consequences on the human brain.

Medical Cannabis Laws Do Not Increase Adolescent Consumption

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, September, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

A Columbia University study published in the journal Lancet Psychiatry has found that medical cannabis laws have not increased cannabis consumption in adolescents—one of the major bugaboos that opponents of legalization in its various forms have used against even medical marijuana laws.

Using data from a national, annual survey called Monitoring the Future, researchers from the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York say that enactment of a medical cannabis law does not increase adolescent cannabis consumption.

The study is based on interviews with more than 1 million adolescents over a 14-year period in states with medical marijuana laws.

Medical Cannabis Legalization is Up for Vote in 4 States: Here’s How you can Help!

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, September, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

On Tuesday we published an article detailing how you can get involved with the five cannabis legalization initiatives up for a vote this November. However, there are four additional states voting this November on the legalization of cannabis for medical uses.

Below is how you can get involved with each of these efforts:

Florida

Florida’s Amendment 2 is in good position at the moment, with polling from July showing that 77% of voters in the state support the measure. However, polling was similarly high in 2014, when an almost identical measure failed at the ballot despite receiving over 50% of the vote (as with this measure, it requires 60% to pass). This makes it vital for proponents of medical cannabis legalization in Florida – and those outside of the state – to get involved in making sure that the 60% threshold is met this time.
