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.

Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Law: Here’s What You Should Know

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, September, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

Although Ohio’s newfound medical marijuana law will officially hit the books on Thursday, this means very little for patients needing immediate, legal access to the herb. In fact, no cultivation sites or dispensaries are expected to get down to business for another two years, which, unfortunately, puts those residents who are interested in participating in the program in a tough position: Do we wait out the system, or engage in the dangerous practice of smuggling in marijuana from a legal state?

When Governor John Kasich put his signature on House Bill 523 earlier this year, making Ohio the 26th state in the nation to legalize a comprehensive medical marijuana program, it came with a provision that allows the would-be-patients of the Buckeye State to obtain cannabis products from legal states—like neighboring Michigan. But the language of the law has confused many of the state’s residents (at least those without a law degree), which could potentially lead to some people catching some heat from the federal government.

The American Legion Wants Marijuana Reclassified to Help Treat PTSD

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, September, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

These aren't your filthy hippies and stoners looking for an excuse to toke (not that there's anything wrong with that!): The American Legion is calling for the federal government to reclassify marijuana to acknowledge its potential benefits as a medical treatment.

As Jacob Sullum previously noted, The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is stubbornly refusing to change the federal classification of marijuana as a drug that has no "accepted medical use" until science proves them wrong. Fortunately they're easing off on the Catch-22 situation that has resulted in this classification making it extremely difficult for researchers to perform the very scientific testing that could determine marijuana's medical value.
