U.S. Women Increasingly Using Pot During Pregnancy, Study Finds

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

CHICAGO (AP) — U.S. women are increasingly using marijuana during pregnancy, sometimes to treat morning sickness, new reports suggest. Though the actual numbers are small, the trend raises concerns because of evidence linking the drug with low birth weights and other problems.

In 2014, almost 4 percent of pregnant women said they’d recently used marijuana, up from 2.4 percent in 2002, according to an analysis of annual drug use surveys.

Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, said the results raise concerns and urged doctors and other health care providers to avoid recommending the drug for pregnant women. Volkow commented in an editorial published online Monday with the study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Maine can (Finally!) Celebrate Their Legalization Victory!

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

As you may have read in our election coverage article about Maine and it’s legalization measure, it wasn’t one that we could call on election night.  In fact, the opposition for Question 1 just finally dropped their request for a recount just this past Saturday, December 16th.

The recount was 2 weeks into the process and they had counted about 1/5th of the total number of ballots so far.  The recount that had been conducted so far showed that the tally would not change significantly and the “yes” votes still seemed to have it.

According to the Press Herald:

Homeless Across Country Fall Victim to Synthetic Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The nation’s homeless are proving to be especially susceptible to a new, dirt-cheap version of synthetic marijuana, which leaves users glassy-eyed, aimless, sprawled on streets and sidewalks oblivious to their surroundings or wandering into traffic.

Nearly 300 homeless people became ill last month in St. Louis due to the man-made hallucinogen that experts believe is far more dangerous and unpredictable than the real thing. Other outbreaks have occurred in New York City, Los Angeles and Austin, Texas.

“It was common for us to see reactions where they were violent, incoherent, sometimes catatonic on the ground,” Austin police Lt. Kurt Thomas said.

Maine’s Marijuana Opponents Back Down on All of That Recount Business

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

Although the controversial ballot recount that has been taking place in Maine concerning whether or not the state actually legalized marijuana was expected to conclude sometime during the early part of 2017, it seems the anti-legalization forces that have been jamming up the state’s progress for the past month have officially thrown in the towel.

Over the weekend, the Maine Secretary of State’s office announced that the lynch mob gunning to discredit the validity of the ballots in support of the state’s recreational marijuana ballot initiative (Question 1) had backed off its mission to try and prevent legalization.

“We promised folks that if we came to a point where we could not see any chance of reversing the result, we would not drag the process out,” Newell Augur, legal counsel for the No on 1 campaign, told the Portland Press Herald. “We are satisfied that the count and the result are accurate.”

Colorado Offers Pot Czar to Help with Legal Weed Transition in Massachusetts

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

A lot has changed since Colorado voted to legalize recreational weed four years ago when Governor John Hickenlooper humorously told anxious pot advocates “don’t break out the Cheetos or goldfish too quickly.”

It was a brave new world, and Colorado faced unheard of challenges. Things were a bit, well, chaotic for a while. Not everyone knew what was legal and what was not or which government agency was meant to solve the many issues that arose.

Thankfully, Hickenlooper had the presence of mind to appoint a brilliant pot czar—Andrew Freedman, who famously said back in 2014, “We’re making the plane as we fly it.”

Colorado Health Department Grants Millions for Cannabis Research

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

Colorado’s Health Department has announced that it will be providing researchers with millions of dollars in order to study cannabis.

According to the department, $2.35 million will be spent on researching cannabis and its impact on driving – both individually (how it effects individual drivers), and societally (how it effects accident rates).

“This research will be invaluable in Colorado and across the country,” says Dr. Larry Wolk, executive director of Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. “The findings will inform our public education efforts and give people additional information they need to make decisions about marijuana use.”

According to Wolk, funding will also be spent on researching cannabis’ impact on breast milk, including how long it stays in the milk of mothers who are nursing.
