  1. “Ban the box” legislation, pay equity laws, and support across the country for legalized marijuana use are forcing new rules and policies in the workplace. https://www.forbes.com/sites/alonzomartinez/2020/01/06/from-marijuana-mandates-to-ban-the-box-rules-2019-laws-and-legal-decisions-force-big-changes-in-hiring/#10e7861817f4
  2. Continued use of marijuana is also associated with development of tolerance. So, marijuana is addictive and National Institute on Drug Abuse also considers it an addictive drug. However, some people are more likely to develop addiction than others. https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/research-reports/marijuana/available-treatments-marijuana-use-disorders Currently, the FDA has not approved any medications for the treatment of marijuana use disorder, but research is active in this area. https://www.addictionrehabcenters.com/drug-addiction/marijuana-abuse-addiction/
  3. In a study of patients with autism researchers have shown that cannabis as a treatment for autism spectrum disorders appears to be beneficial.
  4. We don't think cannabis is killing people, but we don't think it's saving people also. Legalizing medical marijuana does not reduce the rate of fatal opioid overdoses, according to researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Medical marijuana and fatal opioid overdoses can be cause of death. But there is no correlation between opioid overdose mortality and the level of restriction.

  6. Studies have found that when you’re high on marijuana, you can have psychotic symptoms. The effect goes away as the high wears off. If you already have schizophrenia and use the drug, your symptoms may get worse. Researchers also have found that if you carry certain types of specific genes that affect brain chemistry, marijuana use can raise the chance you’ll have schizophrenia.
  7. The federal Cannabis Act will allow Canadian adults to grow up to four cannabis plants at home, but it need additional restrictions on home cannabis cultivation. See the rules here- https://www.theleafnews.com/dearherb/will-there-be-security-requirements-for-legal-home-cannabis-cultivation-476157823.html https://www.leafly.com/news/cannabis-101/home-cannabis-cultivation-laws-a-state-by-state-guide Heroin or Marijuana use which were undetected by other people but when it came to the brain mapping of the addicts, it lightened up with activities. There are two components to the brain. One is the Limbic system which is considered far more primitive and the other one is the Neocortex which is comparatively modern. The human survival instincts are controlled by the Limbic system whereas Neocortex is all about imagination, learning, behavior, conscious or subconscious mind etc. Therefore Neocortex has a greater control over the mind and the body. When a human being comes in contact with addiction, it goes on to manipulate the brain by creating a new operating system. When a person is addicted, it develops a vague perception of survival and the only reward a brain can expect, is through drugs and that is crucial in the process of survival. The addict develops a conception that he / she has to continue using drugs or consume alcohol. The modern system is quite reliable and robust. The component of brain that keeps the heart beating and the organs functioning now needs drugs and the urge or craving for narcotics becomes severe. At this particular stage, addiction seems to have taken the form of a disease or condition that has completely taken over the physical and chemical structure of a brain. Now everything comes down to chemistry. Source- http://www.addictionrehabcenters.com/addiction-treatment/marijuana-addiction-treatment-and-rehabilitation/
