Facing a March election when the mayor and eight council seats will be up for grabs the Los Angeles City Council repealed their very own ban on medical marijuana dispensaries in an 11-2 vote. Now that according to the latest Zogby Polls pro-cannabis voters are the national majority and outnumber the prohibitionists by 56% to 38% in California the politicians are starting to back pedal. Expect to see a lot more of this in the next few years.

"The Impact Of Smoking Marijuana Regularly On Your Lungs, According To Science"

"“Lifetime marijuana use up to 20 joint-years is not associated with adverse changes in spirometric (exhalation strength) measures of lung health,” the study, featured in the medical journal Annals of the American Thoracic Society, concluded...“The distinction the Emory University study makes is not new,” Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws, told ThinkProgress. “It’s ripe with citations from Donald Tashkin who has spent more than 40 years trying to answer the question of what happens to people when they smoke tobacco and marijuana. This new study took things further; today these products aren’t being smoked [in a way] that the product is carbonized and there’s ash."

Vermont's Attorney General Bill Sorrell Predicts Legislature Will Legalize Marijuana In 2016

"Let me put it this way, I will be surprised if marijuana is not legalized in this next legislative session," he said. There are enough votes for legislation to pass in the Senate, he says, and outgoing Gov. Peter Shumlin has said he would sign a bill.

Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin tells state lawmakers to craft bill to legalize recreational marijuana. Vows to work with legislature and sign bill into law. This would make Vermont the first state to legalize through the legislative process rather than by referendum. Marijuana could be legal as early as this summer.

Cannabis ‘Doesn’t Lower IQ Or School Grades’ – But Smoking Tobacco Does

Previous studies may have been skewed by the fact that teenagers tend to smoke the two together.

Researchers used data on 2235 children – mapping tobacco and cannabis use against IQ at age 15 and educational performance at age 16.

After full adjustment, those who had used cannabis 50 times did not differ from never-users on either IQ or educational performance.

The scientists say that there is a ‘robust’ link between smoking cigarettes and lower achievement in education – even when cannabis is excluded.

Study: Alcohol Is The Real Gateway Drug, Not Marijuana

Alcohol is typically the first substance consumed by individuals who report polydrug use later in life, according to data published this month in The Journal of School Health.

Researchers from Texas A&M University and the University of Florida, Gainesville evaluated drug use patterns from a nationally representative sample of 2,835 12th graders.

Authors found that youth use of alcohol most often preceded the use of tobacco or marijuana. They also reported subjects’ age of alcohol initiation is the strongest predictor of later polydrug use.

“Alcohol is the most commonly used substance, and the majority of polysubstance using respondents consumed alcohol prior to tobacco or marijuana initiation,” they reported. “Respondents initiating alcohol use in sixth grade reported significantly greater lifetime illicit substance use and more frequent illicit substance use than those initiating alcohol use in ninth grade or later.”
