The legalization of marijuana in Washington and Colorado has had no impact on road fatality rates, according to a new study published by the American Journal of Public Health.
 Study Finds Road Fatalities Unaffected by Marijuana Legalization


Anthony Martinelli
Researchers at the University of Texas evaluated motor vehicle crash fatality rates in the first 2 states with recreational marijuana legalization and compared them with motor vehicle crash fatality rates in similar states without recreational marijuana legalization.

They compared year-over-year changes in motor vehicle crash fatality rates per billion vehicle miles traveled before and aft....

 FDA Seeking Public Comments On CBD


Justin Strekal

The agency will consider these comments prior to preparing a formal response to the World Health Organization, which is considering placing the substances within their international drug scheduling code. Now, to be frank, its a little silly that the FDA is seeking public comment on a topic that would normally be judged based on the merits of evidence....

Most people have strong feelings about marijuana`s distinctive dank odor. Suspicious landlords sniff for it. High-school hot-boxers roll down all the windows of their cars and drive around for hours trying to get rid of it. Mainstream candle and soap companies seek to recreate it for high-end, non-psychoactive mood settings. And now, it`s quietly becoming clear that the powerful smell of legal cannabis could become its ultimate undoing the thing that causes the entire legalization experiment to disappear in a poof of smoke.

A federal report has determined that there is currently no evidence-based method of detecting marijuana-impaired driving, despite numerous states having laws in place that find someone guilty of a DUID if they test above a certain THC level.
 Federal Report: No Evidence-Based Methods to Detect Marijuana-Impaired Driving

This per se limit appears to have been based on something other than scientific evidence. Some recent studies demonstrate that such per se limits are not evidence-based. In addition the report also calls into question sweat, hair, saliva and urine testing, stating that there are currently no ....
