That was the message marijuana industry officials had for a full house of farmers and other attendees Tuesday at the Williamsburg Lodge during the Virginia Farm Bureau’s annual convention. The three-day event continues through Thursday. Though illegal in Virginia, medical marijuana is…

Johann Hari: The Lessons of a Failed War on Drugs

The 2015 book Chasing The Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs, is a New York Times bestseller.

What he realized on that 30,000 mile journey is that almost everything he thought he knew about addiction was wrong. "Drugs are…

Study Explores Chemical Links Of Cannabis, Exercise, And Sexual Bliss

ShutterstockScientists are homing in on biological reasons for the age-old "cannabis makes sex better" theory, though there'll need to be plenty of further research to come.A new study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine has seemingly uncovered a chemical link between human orgasm and the cannabis plant, the latter of which has long enjoyed a reputation for enhancing or enabling the former. Being aware of the association between weed and good sex, researchers sought to determine whether our brains showed similar behavior along a certain set of neurochemical pathways we all have, known as the "cannabinoid system," in response to chemicals called cannabinoids.These can either be introduced to our systems from outside the body as phytocannabinoids, found in plants like cannabis, or activated naturally from within the bo…
