Compound in Marijuana Appears Safe and Nonaddictive, WHO Says
A compound in marijuana appears to be relatively safe and nonaddictive, according to a new report from the World Health Organization (WHO).
In an initial review of existing research, the WHO found that the compound, called cannabidiol or CBD, is "generally well-tolerated with a good safety profile," according to the November report. In addition, the compound appears to have "no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential," the report found.
Still, the report added that although "CBD has been found to have relatively low toxicity … not all potential effects have been explored." A more extensive review of the compound will be carried out in 2018, according to a WHO statement from Dec. 13.
Man Settles In Lawsuit Against Cops Who Forced Him To Eat Weed
In a lawsuit against cops who forced him to eat weed, a man accepted a generous settlement. Although the victim was vindicated, it’s a bizarre and sickening case from start to finish. Worse still, it’s just one piece of the horrifically widespread issue of police brutality in the United States.
This lawsuit against cops who forced him to eat weed has weighed on Edgar Castro for over a year now. But what exactly happened?
According to the lawsuit. back in September 2016, police officers pulled over Castro, then 19 years old, for speeding in Phoenix, Arizona at 3:58 a.m. The officers, Jason McFadden and Michael Carnicle, saw a small amount of cannabis in Castro’s vehicle. Some of the cannabis was in packaging from a medical marijuana dispensary.
Walmart Has Been Selling Marijuana Christmas Trees
O’ Christmas tree, that looks like weed
It’d be cool if it had real buds
O’ Christmas tree, you don’t come with seeds
But you look great in my apartment
Seven leaves and O’ so green
Will it fit in my rolling machine?
O’ cannabis, for the rest of us
We want to smoke it all day long.
It’s the magical time of year again when we decorate everything we own with colorful, flashing lights in hopes that the big man in the red suit will spot us from the sky on Christmas eve and leave us tons of goodies and worthless gadgets to disconnect us even further from the real world in the new year.
Ah, but if you really want to impress the one called Santa Claus, you might want to skip the traditional Tannenbaum from your local Boy Scout troop and get to trimming a corner of your living room with a plastic perennial that will have the fat man saying, “Merry Christ-buds!”

Store Installs Special Lighting to Deter Drug Use
Have you heard about this special lighting to deter drug use? If not, check out this Sheetz! Or rather, take a look at this measure one Pennsylvania-based convenient store has taken to quell the trend of using their restrooms to get high.
Drug addicts are apparently shooting up on the toilets of one Pennsylvania convenient store. And the store owners and employees have had enough. They are reportedly experimenting with a special lighting to deter drug use. What’s so special about this lighting? It’s tinted blue. And apparently, this lighting is designed to make it more difficult for intravenous drug users to locate their veins.
A recent report published by the Tribune-Review reveals how the Sheetz gas station in New Kensington, Pennsylvania has just installed some new lights in its restrooms—intended to deter drug use.
Dispute Erupts Over New Policy On ‘Cannabis Smell’ Police Stops
A controversial new drug policy in England and Wales has casual weed-smokers breathing a sigh of relief, while police officers are left scratching their heads.
Officers Advised To Discontinue ‘Cannabis Smell’ Police Stops
Dissension has broken out amongst UK police forces due to recent advice that warns arresting officers NOT to stop and search people simply because an officer smells cannabis.
The change in policy was actually brought to police’s attention last year but was just recently reiterated in a Tuesday report by the HM Inspectorate of Constabulary.
The guidance suggests that smell alone doesn’t constitute a stop and search, and other factors, such as behavior, should be considered before any action is taken. The report also noted that frequent stop and searches do not necessarily increase the likelihood of a conviction.
