US MI: Mich. Lawmakers Weigh Saliva Tests For Marijuana

Marijuana (MAP) - Tue, 04/22/2014 - 07:00
Livingston County Daily Press & Argus, 22 Apr 2014 - Under a bill proposed in Lansing, Michigan could become the first state to adopt a roadside saliva test that aims to tell police whether a driver is impaired due to consuming pot. Saliva testing is being pushed by a bipartisan group of Michigan legislators and championed by the Michigan State Police. But researchers who've studied the test method said results are inconsistent and especially misleading when applied to regular users of cannabis, such as the more than 100,000 Michiganders who are allowed to use medical marijuana.

US OH: OPED: Legalizers Ignore Pot's Dangers

Marijuana (MAP) - Tue, 04/22/2014 - 07:00
Columbus Dispatch, 22 Apr 2014 - Marijuana has now been legalized or decriminalized in 17 states and the District of Columbia, with Maryland joining the list just last week. What's unhealthy about this trend is that it coincides with a declining awareness of marijuana's dangers - especially among young people. Fewer than 40 percent of high-school seniors think marijuana use poses a great risk, down from 55 percent in 2003. Cigarettes are dangerous, more and more adolescents have come to realize, but they don't believe marijuana is. (In fact, they're both unhealthy.)

The Herald, 19 Apr 2014 - LOS ANGELES (AP) - Social media has been buzzing for weeks with jokes about how, this year, Easter Sunday shares the calendar with the pot-lover's highest holiday: April 20, or 420 in stoner lingo.
