The combination of adderall and marijuana

More people are embracing the Adderall and weed combination, but we don’t know much about how they really interact.

A way to level up, or a dangerous drug cocktail? There’s lots of enthusiasm and skepticism out there about the weed and Adderall, aka “weederall,” combination, and plenty of misleading and concern-trolling information about taking the two together.

And that makes learning actual, useful, credible info about the combo difficult. But don’t worry, we’ve done the digging for you. Depending on who you ask, Adderall and weed are an ideal combo, a perfect pair of stimulant and depressant. Yet others who’ve combined the two have had unpleasant and sometimes distressing experiences involving racing hearts and shallow breathing.

Black market marijuana is a big problem, and this new survey proves it

California's cannabis market is leading by example. However, it's not a good example.

The marijuana industry is just over a month away from making history. Following the passage of the Cannabis Act by Parliament on June 19, our neighbor to the north, Canada, is set to become the first industrialized nation to legalize recreational marijuana on Oct. 17. When fully legal, adult-use weed is expected to add billions in annual revenue to the industry.

A recent survey found that three out of four communities in Michigan do not want cannabis businesses in their area.

The survey was conducted by the University of Michigan’s Ford School of Public Policy. Township officials were polled about whether or not they’ve opted in or out of Michigan’s medical cannabis program. The survey found that 75 percent of officials had opted out of the program.

The survey was conducted online for the majority of communities and some by mail. There was a 70 percent response rate according to Tom Ivacko, the associate director of the Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy at the Ford School of Public Policy.

The first country to legalize pot is taking it slow

The first country to legalize recreational marijuana is still going through growing pains in setting up its market.

Uruguay, which legalized the drug nationally in 2013, is in no rush. The Latin American country wants to do it the right way, and that means, at least initially, a lot of restrictions.

"They're very aware that they're the first in the world to do this," said John Walsh, director for drug policy and the Andes at the Washington Office on Latin America. "They've run with a tightly controlled model to show the world that they have control over the system."

3 Top marijuana stocks Wall Street expects to drop at least 25%

The green rush may soon have investors seeing red.

The big day is rapidly approaching. In just over a month, on Oct. 17, recreational marijuana will go on sale in licensed dispensaries throughout Canada. When fully legal, the sale of adult-use weed is expected to usher in high demand and big dollar figures for the industry.

In anticipation of this legalization -- and the big profits that are projected to follow -- marijuana stock investors and Wall Street have pushed the valuations of many pot stocks into nosebleed territory. Some of these marijuana stocks are still valued modestly below Wall Street's consensus price target per share.

Marijuana use is suddenly "booming" with this group of people

This is what you call "turning over a new leaf".

The green rush is officially on. In 32 days, Canada will lift the curtain and allow recreational marijuana to be legally sold in licensed dispensaries. Although Uruguay became the first country in the world to legalize adult-use pot, Canada is set to make history by becoming the first industrialized nation to do so. And with this legalization comes the expectation of billions of dollars in annual sales flooding into the industry.
