A new paper published in the journal Frontiers in Psychiatry examines marijuana use information from 2002 – 2011 and gives lie to the hypothesis that increased access to marijuana will doom America’s teens. It turns out it is people eligible for AARP – aged 50 and older – who are driving the recent popularity of weed.

Portland Democrat Diane Russell is going to try once again to move her bill for statewide marijuana legalization through the Maine legislature. Lining up to oppose her is the usual cadre of drug rehabbers, police organizations, and… medical marijuana advocates?
Senator Leach is revising his attack by abandoning efforts to help patients in need of the THC in cannabis in favor of pushing a bill to legalize only CBD-rich cannabis for medical use.
The latest slate of polls shows that even in some red states, there is majority support not just for medical marijuana, but taxed and regulated marijuana even for healthy people.
