Most marijuana vape products quarantined by Mass. Health Officials

A quarantine was ordered for most marijuana vaping products in Massachusetts Tuesday, extending the state's efforts to control vaping products amid a nationwide epidemic of lung injuries.

Exempt from the quarantine are medical marijuana products designed specifically for devices for medical marijuana flower vaping, the state Cannabis Control Commission said. Massachusetts' ban on vape-related products for medical marijuana users was lifted as the quarantine went into effect.

What is the best time of day to eat an edible?

When edibles become available in storefronts sometime after mid-December, users are going to try to get the most of their bud. So, should you gulp down your pot-infused treats in the morning, mid-day or for supper?

The answer is not that simple.

It’s important to remember that edibles take longer to kick in and last longer because they’re digested like regular food. It could take up to four hours before you start feeling the effects.

Therefore, it’s better to plan an edible high rather than do so impulsively. If users aren’t careful, they might start feeling the effects when they least expect it.

‘Synthetic marijuana’ is a dangerous misnomer that people need to stop using

Synthetic cannabinoids do not taste like cannabis, do not provide the same high, and in a frightening number of cases, cause nasty side effects, including psychosis and death.

Lab-made cannabinoids — molecules meant to mimic natural compounds found in cannabis upon the body — are a relatively new group of drugs. They found their way out of research labs and onto the streets, starting to notably appear in the 2000s. Going by many names, including early brand “Spice,” it is also unfortunately referred to as “synthetic marijuana” by law enforcement, legislators, media, and the public.

Fact is, the name is a dangerous misnomer, as synthetic cannabinoids do not taste like cannabis, do not provide the same high, and can even be life threatening.

DEA says Kentucky has the most illicit cannabis plants per capita in the Country

One of the 17 states that has yet to legalize recreational or medicinal marijuana is the site of some of the most Drug Enforcement Administration raids in the country. Last year, DEA officials seized and destroyed 418,076 cannabis plants in Kentucky.

But where Kentucky really stood out was the proportion of those plants to the state’s residents. A recent analysis by the American Addiction Centers found that the DEA had busted a hearty 9,356 cannabis plants per 100,000 people living in the state.

California had the second most per capita DEA busts, but at 4,572 plants per 100,000 state residents, it’s hardly keeping up with the Bluegrass State.

The race to create faster-acting edibles

A few years ago, edibles started showing up in the last place anyone wanted to see them. The obituaries. 

First, 19-year-old student Levy Thamba Pongi visited Denver during spring break of 2014 and jumped off a motel balcony after eating a marijuana cookie. Less than a year later, also in Colorado, a seemingly happy 23-year-old named Luke Goodman died by suicide on a ski vacation in Keystone -- a tragedy his family blames on cannabis candy. Earlier that day, he’d tried a couple of pieces, and when he didn’t feel anything, popped a few more -- four peach tarts and one red velvet in all, five times the recommended dose.

Florida University developing program to teach school kids about medical marijuana

It would go to figure, with the growing number of states where cannabis is legal, that educators are grappling with how to talk about marijuana with students in school. After all, the transition from the era of “Just Say No” messaging about how drugs are bad to this brave new world where cannabis products are available in the mall and corner pharmacies takes some explaining, even for the grown.
