San Jose leaders eye changes to medical marijuana rules
SAN JOSE -- With just weeks to go before a December deadline for compliance, medical marijuana providers are still balking at some of San Jose's rules and city officials are offering to ease them.
Nineteen pot providers have been seeking to meet San Jose's regulatory requirements by December 18. The rules, adopted in June 2014, restrict pot stores to select industrial and commercial areas away from schools and parks and impose a host of security, tax payment and other requirements. Dispensaries that fail to meet the requirements by the deadline face closure.
But one rule in particular requiring pot stores to demonstrate that their marijuana is cultivated locally and not from collectives around the state remains a sticking point. City officials planned to ask the City Council to ease the rules Tuesday, allowing another five months for shops to sell through products obtained from "third-party" vendors and letting San Jose pot clubs buy and sell to one another.
Does High-Potency Marijuana Do More Damage To The Brain?
There’s been a long and heated debate about whether marijuana actually triggers long-term changes in a person, both neurologically and psychologically. Some research has found that pot is linked to psychotic symptoms, and it’s certainly been linked to schizophrenia across multiple studies. However, it’s a bit of a chicken-or-egg problem, since it can be difficult to tell which is the pre-existing “condition,” the pot smoking or the psychological/psychotic symptoms. Now, a new study from King’s College London finds that smoking skunk, a high-potency variety of pot, is linked to changes in the white matter connections between the two hemispheres of the brain. And this seems to be true whether a smoker experiences psychosis or not.
