Medical Cannabis benefits and Opioids crisis

Over the last few years use of prescription opioids in USA has strongly increased. An over reliance to treat disease and pain that creates some problems to public health.

Maine ready to legalize recreational use of cannabis

As everybody knows, in Maine citizens will decide on recreational marijuana legalization in November 2016. A very important ballot, because it would legalize adult use and possession up to 2,5 ounces. Announcement has been given last April from Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, and now campaign to legalize marijuana is growing day by day. Last 27th of June Matthew Dunlap declared that the initiative to regulate marijuana will appear on the state ballot as question n.1; and that’s because usually first question gets more votes having an higher chance to be approved. Cannabis legislation in Maine is currently a little outdated: law criminalizes use and possession of marijuana, while many other US states are approving permissive laws.

Marijuana Kills Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria

Forum: International Cannabis News Posted By: Katelyn Baker Post Time: 07-22-2016 at 07:54 AM When antibiotic drugs were first discovered in 1928, they revolutionized healthcare. By the end of World War II, their production had exploded. And then things got a little out of hand. Today, according to an estimate from the CDC, about half of antibiotic prescriptions in the United States are totally unnecessary. The effects of that over-prescription are disastrous. According to the World Health Organization, common bacteria are evolving against common medications to become catastrophic once again. As a result, 2 million Americans suffer from antibiotic-resistant bacteria each year. 23,000 of those people die. That number is destined to rise as bacteria becomes more and more resistant. Bottom line – we’ve dug ourselves into a real hole here. If only we could come up with a way to dig ourselves out ...
