Actor Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s disease foundation, The Michael J.

The MJFF public policy team is tracking these bills and working to educate members of Congress and their staff on their importance to the Parkinson’s community.” The MJFF believes that more research into marijuana and cannabidiol (CBD) could lead to trea...

U.S. Authorities Narrow Search to One (Illegal) Vape Brand

By Michael R. Blood, Associated Press (AP) — It’s a widely known vaping cartridge in the marijuana economy, but it’s not a licensed brand.

The suspect Dank vapes are a familiar product in the underground marijuana economy — it’s not a legal, tested brand. It’s merely a name on a box or a cartridge, packaging that’s easily obtained o...
