New Study Aims To Learn If Cannabis Can Help Treat Autism

The United States Department of Defense and GW Pharmaceuticals are collaborating on a new clinical trial at the Montefiore Medical Center in New York. The study examines the effect of the cannabinoid Cannabidivarin, more commonly referred to as CBDV, on irritability and repetitive behaviors in children with autism spectrum disorder. Researchers are hoping to discover if CBDV is a viable solution for treating the symptoms typically associated with this disorder. CBDV is a non-psychotropic compound (meaning it does not affect a person’s mental state), making the chemistry and benefits of CBDV more similar to those of the cannabinoid CBD than those of THC (which is best known for its euphoric effects). “In some of the animal models that are similar to autism, it was found that CBDV had import...

Presidential Candidate Says He Used Marijuana and Wants it Legalized

By Michelle Price, Associated Press (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said that he’s used marijuana “a handful of times a long time ago,” and that it’s time for the U.S. to legalize marijuana.

A handful of times a long time ago,” he said. He added that he knows people whose lives have been “shaken” by its criminalization and the so-called “war on drugs.” Buttigieg said people still have an image of the marijuana industry and dispensaries that’s based on outdated stereotypes. “When you go into a place like this, it almost reminds you of an Apple store how tidy and carefully it’s laid out, knowledgeable employees an...

Mexico to Vote On Marijuana Legalization by End of October

Mexico’s lawmakers are expected to vote this week on a bill to legalize marijuana. In 2018, the Mexico Supreme Court told lawmakers they had until Oct. 24 to legalize marijuana, VOANews reported. The Supreme Court ruled in multiple cases that the country’s prohibition of the recreational use of marijuana violated the constitution. Mexican law says that if the Supreme Court issues the same ruling five times, those rulings set a precedent that allow the court to order the creation of a new regulatory framework. Some lawmakers have proposed that the Mexican government tightly regulate the future marijuana market, while others propose a more open, free market. Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has shown signs of support for decriminalizing marijuana.
