Marijuana legalization was a mistake...

I admit, I'm not interested so much now that it is legal

But any kind of substance taken into the body too early must have som adverse affect on the mind or emotional development

...Highly concentrated pot is destroying my son's life.

Aubree Adams 13 hrs ago

I absolutely loved living in Colorado.

Family-oriented Pueblo is the state’s best-kept secret. Lake Pueblo, Pueblo Mountain Park and Devil’s Canyon are perfect places to hike. We lived in an old Craftsman home in the historic district, with a beautiful garden and wonderful neighbors. I felt like I was living in a dream.

And then legalized marijuana came, and everything changed. It has taken nearly a decade for Colorado’s elected leaders to understand the damage pot is doing to our children. I saw it years ago.

My eldest son entered eighth grade in 2014, the year recreational marijuana stores opened in Colorado. Soon, his behavior changed. He became irrational and repeated things that didn’t make sense. I dismissed it as adolescent mood swings. He had just broken up with a girlfriend. That’s all it was, I told myself.

By his freshman year, I realized he was using marijuana. I was still in denial, though, until he attacked his younger brother and then tried to kill himself. The hospital treated him and sent him home. A few days later, when it was clear he was still suicidal, I took him back to the emergency room. Don’t worry, they told me. It’s just marijuana.

Marijuana legalization wa... (msn.com)

Pot was made legal in Canada in 2018. When I say "legal" that means for adults over the age of 18. I'm not sure what the age is in the US, but it has never been legal for kids in grade 8 or anyone under the legal age. Same goes for alcohol, but teenagers alwasy seem to get access to both and many other drugs as well. It's very sad indeed, but when so many powerful people worldwide are making billions from the drug trade, how do you stop it?

It's illegal for kids just like cigarettes, alcohol where you have to show ID to buy it.

California’s legal weed industry can’t compete with illicit market

By Alexander Nieves 10/23/2021

LOS ANGELES — California’s cannabis market is booming nearly five years after voters legalized recreational weed. But there’s a catch: the vast majority of pot sales are still underground.

Rather than make cannabis a Main Street fixture, California’s strict regulations have led most industry operators to close shop, flee the state or sell in the state’s illegal market that approaches $8 billion annually, twice the volume of legal sales.

Local government opposition, high taxes and competition from unlicensed businesses are complicating California’s push to build a thriving legal market. Many of those factors are baked into California law, including rules allowing city leaders to shut out licensed cannabis enterprises. Meanwhile, the state has relaxed penalties against illegal operations in the name of racial justice.

Infighting between industry groups and lobbying dysfunction in Sacramento have stalled potential legislative fixes, with no clear end in sight. The scale of those problems has California’s iconic cannabis industry — the legal side, at least — lagging behind other states that have regulated the market.

“You don't have a real cannabis industry if the dominant portion of it has no interest in being legal,” said Adam Spiker, executive director of the Southern California Coalition, a cannabis trade association. “There's no other regulated industry in the world that I know of that operates like that.”

...

California’s legal weed... (msn.com)

California’s cannabis law lets local officials decide whether to open the door to cannabis or slam it shut. So far, most are opting for the latter.

Weed withdrawal: More than half of people using medical cannabis for pain experience withdrawal symptoms

Lara Coughlin, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, University of Michigan 1 day ago

In stark contrast to the overblown fears portrayed during decades past, these days, most people think cannabis is relatively harmless. While weed is indeed less dangerous than some other drugs, it is not without risks.

a close up of a tray: The use of cannabis, though safer than many other drugs, is not entirely without risk.

In a study published Jan. 5, my colleagues and I found that 59% percent of people using medical cannabis for chronic pain experienced moderate to severe withdrawal symptoms if they stopped ingesting weed for hours or days.

Most states in the U.S. have legalized cannabis for medical purposes and 15 have legalized it for recreational use. More people are using cannabis, especially older adults, and the perceived harms from weed...decreasing. While many people report therapeutic benefits or enjoy recreational use of cannabis, it is important people understand the potential risks of cannabis use too.

What cannabis withdrawal looks like

Cannabis withdrawal symptoms can include both physical and psychological experiences that emerge when someone comes down from being hig...ithout use.

When people use cannabis regularly – such as daily or nearly daily – parts of the brain become reliant on cannabinoids, the psychoactive chemicals in cannabis. Cannabinoids are naturally produced in the body, but at a much lower level than is available in most cannabis products. Among those who don’t use weed for a period of several hours or days, cannabinoid levels drop and they experience withdrawal symptoms. ...

Medical Cannabis For Chronic Pain: Global Task Force Develops New Protocols And Guidelines

Javier Hasse 17 hrs ago

Chronic pain affects close to two billion people worldwide. The use of medical cannabis to help alleviate the symptoms of chronic pain is increasing rapidly, aided not only by legalization but also by positive trial outcomes, improved quality of life, daily function and opioid-sparing.

However, there is limited scientific data to guide in terms of dosing and the administration of cannabis-based medicines.

To help support physicians in meeting the needs of their patients, Canopy Growth (NASDAQ: CGC) recruited a group of 20 physicians who leveraged a modified Delphi process to develop three practical protocols for the oral administration of medical cannabis to treat chronic pain.

These recommendations will help fill a knowledge gap and will support clinicians and patients in achieving safe and effective dosing.

It was concluded that patients with neuropathic, inflammatory, nociplastic and mixed pain could be considered and would likely benefit most from treatment with medical cannabis through three treatment protocols outlined within the publication.

In addition, the global task force concluded that, when treating a patient with chronic pain, dosing should be individualized for each patient based on their goals, side effect profile, drug interactions and affordability.

Dr. Alan Bell, family physician and assistant professor at the University of Toronto, is one of the lead experts in the task force.

“As a taskforce, we believe it’s incredibly important to bring medical cannabis to patients looking to treat chronic pain and the gap that exists around dosing and administration guidance is a barrier to physicians adopting this pathway as a viable treatment for their patients,” Bell explained. “These dosing

recommendations and guidelines will function as the backbone for treatment regimens, allowing physicians to suggest medical cannabis as an ongoing, safer alternative to opioids.”

Of course kids shouldn't use it, that's a no-brainer.

One thing few talk about (Joe Rogan does though, I see you 2freaky, LOL) is the difference between smoking and edibles. Edibles can affect people in ways that smoking never does. When eaten, delta9-THC is metabolized into 11-hydroxy-THC which has a much more psychedelic effect than delta9-THC. The effect can be a much more intense high and for some the experience isn't that far from what some who use psychedelics refer to as "tripping".

This means that people that are experienced in smoking cannabis should be very careful with edibles and those without much experience and/or with much lower tolerance should be very wary.

So some might think it's no big deal for teens to consume weed because they did it themselves and no harm came from it, but not only is high potency cannabis more common and available today, but the easy availability of edibles is really something to watch out for with kids.

  • Sensations of extreme ner...or anxiety
  • Disturbances with sleep that can include insomnia or very disturbing dreams and even nightmares
  • A decrease in appetite that may or may not be associated with a significant loss of weight
  • Feelings of restlessness and general malaise
  • The onset of feelings of depression
  • Physical symptoms that causes significant distress, such as abdominal pain, fever, chills, sweating, headache, and/or tremors or shakiness.

Compared to withdrawing from the likes of heroin, cocaine, alcohol, or nicotine, the symptoms are mild and usually only last a week or two. Staying hydrated, exercising and CBD can minimize most of it.

If you think I'm in any way against the medical use of cannabis, or ANY responsible adult use, you are sadly mistaken. lol

I've been prescribed EVERYTHING on the market that's recommended for migraines and tried them all except for the botox injections which I will not be trying. At best they did nothing, at worst they did nothing except cause bad side effects. Cannabis is the only thing that works. I live in a state where it's not legal even medicinally and have no intention of moving. Luckily I have no regard for government's opinion concerning how I choose to treat my own personal medical issues.

Not with whether I can use weed for chronic migraines and not with how I deal with covid.

Is hemp the hero we’ve been waiting for?

Hafsa Khalil 23 hrs ago

Ask anyone what they know about hemp and you can almost guarantee they’ll mention cannabis. While they wouldn’t be entirely wrong (hemp is of the same species), it doesn’t provide the psychoactive sensation we associate with marijuana.

cannabis0107a.jpg

Having hit the headlines over recent years due to its use in CBD oil and skincare, hemp’s newly discovered benefits to the environment - such as phytoremediation, the removal of toxins from soil to improve its quality for other crops - has encouraged its farming.

Industrial hemp is a fast-growing crop largely known for its carbon sequestration capabilities. For every tonne of industrial hemp stems grown, 1.6 tonnes of carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere, making hemp a natural ‘carbon sink’.

What does an email have to do with anything? The article doesn't actually list any side effects doess it? You can't cut and paste one can you?

ufo, it's nothing personal. But I've had my full of posting things(in other places FB groups my fb page) where I post as much as I can, just to have people ask me to explain the article or post more of something, and those I can tell those who skim the headline and then respond. right before you I posted a video of a M/F situation and one of my friends said she didn't watch but could I 'sum it up' a 30min vid

.

I cannot cliff notes lol until I recharge

.

I already said they list some things in the article. It's not a breakdown like 1 2 3

.

So you should email the author who might be able to highlight what you need

Do you realise that when people are adding to what you say, that this normally means that they are are not disagreeing with you?

.

The withdrawal symptons are minor compared to many illegal or illegal drugs. The destructive nature of prescription opioids should come as no surprise to people on this site.


lol Do you realise that when you automatically disagree with and attack everything a person says for years on end that when you finally agree with them on something they may think it's a mistake? lol

.

When you automatically reply, you never think.

.

I have only ever disagreed with you when you are wrong - it just seems to you that that is a lot but then you make so many mistakes.

I may not agree with what you say, but I will never seek to cancel you with an anti-free speech signature

I'm referring to this article you linked: https://onlinelibrary.wil.../add.15370

Which I can cut and paste for you below. That is what I am asking about, or noting does not actually list any of the side effects:

Abstract

Background and aims

Research from cohorts of individuals with recreational cannabis use indicates that cannabis withdrawal symptoms are reported by more than 40% of those using regularly. Withdrawal symptoms are not well understood in those who use cannabis for medical purposes. Therefore, we prospectively examined the stability of withdrawal symptoms in individuals using cannabis to manage chronic pain.

Design, Setting, Participants

Using latent class analysis (LCA) we examined baseline cannabis withdrawal to derive symptom profiles. Then, using latent transition analysis (LTA) we examined the longitudinal course of withdrawal symptoms across the time points. Exploratory analyses examined demographic and clinical characteristics predictive of withdrawal class and transitioning to more or fewer withdrawal symptoms over time.

A cohort of 527 adults with chronic pain seeking medical cannabis certification or re-certification was recruited between February 2014 and June 2015. Participants were recruited from medical cannabis clinic waiting rooms in Michigan, USA. Participants were predominantly white (82%) and 49% identified as male, with an average age of 45.6 years (standard deviation = 12.8).

Measurements

Baseline, 12-month and 24-month assessments of withdrawal symptoms using the Marijuana Withdrawal Checklist–revised.

Findings

A three-class LCA model including a mild (41%), moderate (34%) and severe (25%) symptom class parsimoniously represented withdrawal symptoms experienced by people using medical cannabis. Stability of withdrawal symptoms using a three-class LTA at 12 and 24 months ranged from 0.58 to 0.87, with the most stability in the mild withdrawal class. Younger age predicted greater severity and worsening of withdrawal over time.

Conclusions

Adults with chronic pain seeking medical cannabis certification or re-certification appear to experience mild to severe withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms tend to be stable over a 2-year period, but younger age is predictive of worse symptoms and of an escalating withdrawal trajectory.

Detroit Becomes the Second-Largest U.S. City To Urge Tolerance of Psychedelic Use

Voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot initiative that makes "entheogenic plant" possession the city's "lowest law-enforcement priority."

Detroit Becomes the Second-Largest U.S. City To Urge Tolerance of Psychedelic Use

.

Detroit voters this week overwhelmingly approved a ballot initiative aimed at protecting people who consume "entheogenic plants" from arrest and prosecution. Proposal E, which was supported by 61 percent of voters, makes "personal possession and therapeutic use" of natural psychedelics by adults "the city's lowest law-enforcement priority." Detroit is the second-largest U.S. city to adopt such a policy.
.

Just a month ago, the Seattle City Council unanimously approved a resolution that likewise urged cops to leave psychedelic users alone. That measure covered "any living, fresh, dried, or processed plant or fungal material, including teas or powders, that may contain currently scheduled or analog psychoactive indolamines, tryptamines, or phenethylamines, including, but not limited to, psilocybin mushrooms, ayahuasca tea, mescaline, and iboga." While the Detroit measure does not define "entheogenic plants," an analysis presented to the Detroit City Council suggests the intended meaning is similar. Unlike Seattle's resolution, Proposal E does not cover "cultivation" or "sharing."

The Beautiful Molecular Relationship Between Cannabis and Caffeine

Jeremy Glass 10/19/2021

Few mind-altering substances pair together as harmoniously as coffee and weed.

The Beautiful Molecular Relationship Between Cannabis and Caffeine

Whether you’re brewing one of the few THC-infused coffee brands actually available on the market or lighting up a joint with your afternoon espresso, nothing hits quite like a coffee buzz punctuated with a cannabis high. It’s known colloquially as a “Seattle Speedball” in some parts of the country (I’ll let you guess where).

There’s science here: Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant that blocks the neurotransmitters in your brain from making you feel sleepy. That caffeine high is the work of chemicals like cortisol and adrenaline that elevate your blood pressure and boost your energy supplies, causing feelings of power and euphoria. Weed, as it turns out, works similarly.

“Cannabis, like caffeine, enters your system through the blood/brain barrier,” explains Michelle Mendoza, Head Buyer at the Los Angeles dispensary Sweet Flower. “It binds to receptors in the endocannabinoid...
