Marijuana users get high at work in states with legal weed – survey (US)

first_imgThe Seattle Times 13 March 2019Family First Comment: “One in four marijuana users who are employed admit to doing this within the past year, according to a new survey of cannabis consumers in Washington, Oregon and Colorado, three states where recreational weed is legal… The survey shows that after legalization, many cannabis consumers increased their usage.”Read our Fact Sheet on this issue in four marijuana users who are employed admit to doing this within the past year, according to a new survey of cannabis consumers in Washington, Oregon and Colorado, three states where recreational weed is legal.One in four also said they’ve gotten high before work — I’m guessing it’s the same one in four, but the survey doesn’t specify. The marketing communications firm Quinn Thomas, which has offices in Seattle and Portland, funded the survey, which was conducted by polling-and-opinion outfit DHM Research. A representative sample of 900 cannabis consumers were interviewed — 300 in each of the three states — from Jan. 8 to 14. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percent.“There is a lot of information out there about the cannabis industry and its regulatory structure, but not much is known about consumers,” said Zach Knowling, vice president at Quinn Thomas, in an email. “We felt our experience researching and reaching unique audiences could build greater understanding of who they are.”Washington and Colorado both legalized recreational use of marijuana through voter initiatives in 2012, becoming the first states to do so. Oregon followed in 2014. The survey shows that after legalization, many cannabis consumers increased their usage. In Washington 44 percent of respondents said they are now regular consumers of pot (daily or a few times per week), compared with 36 percent who said they consumed that much prelegalization.… While the survey shows that getting stoned at work is a fairly commonplace activity, so is drug testing. Twenty-one percent of respondents said they’ve been subjected to a drug test that checked for cannabis within the past year. And just about the same number said they stopped getting high for a while in order to pass the test.READ MORE: read more

Duterte, Misuari agree to set up peace coordinating body

first_img Duterte has earlier mulled the creation of a coordinating committee between the government and MNLF in a bid to maintain lasting peace in Mindanao. “In resolving the Muslim rebellion in Mindanao, every undertaking that may lead to a lasting peace and prosperity to that region must be tried and tested until its fruition,” he said. “We can do less as a people, and President Rodrigo Roa Duterte will walk the extra mile to bring harmony to the country and the nation,” he said./PN According to Go, the agreement was reached after President Duterte met up with Misuari at the Malacañang Palace recently. The two will meet again next month in Davao to finalize things. MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte and Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) founding chair Nur Misuari agreed to form the government and MNLF panels that will serve as the foundation of the peace coordinating committee, Sen. and former Presidential aide Bong Go said. “This coordinating committee will serve as a venue to seek for the cooperation of the MNLF to achieve immediate peace in Sulu by, among others, helping in combatting the Abu Sayyaf Group and convincing MNLF relatives to return to the folds of the law,” Presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said.center_img President Rodrigo Duterte met anew with Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) founding chairman Nur Misuari in Malacañang on Monday night. Both leaders have agreed the creation of a coordinating body between the government and MNLF. ABS-CBN NEWS The government has a peace pact with the MNLF in 1996, consequently establishing the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao where Misuari became a governor. The Palace spokesperson added the committee could “expect the full support of the Office of the President as we move towards our common goal of resolving the conflict that have caused deaths, suffering, and dislocation among the Muslims and Christians alike.”last_img read more

Report Reveals Some Species That Are Vanishing

first_imgThe monarch butterfly (Image: Dendroica cerulea/Flickr.)INDIANAPOLIS – It’s a case of the common becoming uncommon in a new report from the Endangered Species Coalition. The report lists 10 species that have been documented as declining, and at a rate that could mean the next generation may not get to see them in the great outdoors.Leda Huta, executive director of the Endangered Species Coalition, says the list includes the monarch butterfly, which has seen a population decline of more than 90 percent.“Our kids may not see them anymore,” she says. “Certain kinds of butterflies. Monarch butterflies, a lot of different species of frogs, different kinds of bees, bumblebees. Signs show may all be gone soon.”Researchers estimate there are about 33 million monarch butterflies this year, compared to more than a billion a few years ago.For those who want to preserve wildlife and take action, the report recommends making a call to Congress about reducing climate change pollution, or planting more native flowers, trees and shrubs in a yard – even in a balcony planter. Huta says everyone can help.“We still have hope. This is a call to action,” she explains. “We have an opportunity right now to turn things around to ensure that our children do get to see these species.”Other species the report says are vanishing include the little brown bat, the greater sage grouse and the great white shark.Troy Wildelast_img read more

Mug’s game for Valencia

first_img Valencia has five goals to his name since moving to Upton Park last summer and has reportedly attracted attention from the likes of Chelsea having impressed in his maiden season in England. But, with Cole and Carroll also sidelined, Allardyce’s attacking options consist of top goalscorer Diafra Sakho and recent arrival Nene. Nene did not travel with his team-mates and nor did Alex Song,who stayed behind whilst the squad travelled to Dubai to work on his own fitness and overcome a slight knee complaint. But for those who did make the trip, Allardyce is hoping it pays dividends after seeing the Hammers win just once in their last 11 league outings. “Everyone enjoyed the break,” he said. “The lads enjoyed the quality of the training sessions and what Dubai has to offer. I think a little bit of rest, both mentally and physically, will help us to win more games in the last 10 games of the season. Obviously we’re all looking forward to the games and picking up as many points as possible “I’ve done it every season for 13, 14 seasons. The research by the LMA shows the benefits of having a break and the evidence shows the risk of injuries decreases.” Sam Allardyce has confirmed Enner Valencia is a doubt for Saturday’s London derby against Arsenal after cutting his toe on a broken mug. With the Hammers free of FA Cup commitments having slipped to a 4-0 fourth-round exit at the hands of West Brom, Allardyce took his side off to Dubai for some warm-weather training. Although the 60-year-old believes the trip could see an upturn in form for West Ham, the toe injury suffered by Valencia upon their return will be seen as another setback. Valencia required emergency hospital treatment with the club confirming he had suffered a “deep laceration” after stepping on a piece of broken porcelain having dropped a teacup on the floor. It is the latest injury blow for Allardyce, who is already without fellow forwards Andy Carroll and Carlton Cole, with Winston Reid also missing for the trip to Arsenal. “Enner has had an accident at home and has cut his big toe quite severely on a broken cup,” Allardyce said. “We’re not exactly certain but we think it will be too soon for him be considered for the game at Arsenal on Saturday. “It was a freak accident at a time when we could have done without it due to our lack of available strikers.” The Hammers confirmed the nature of the accident with a short statement on their website, which read: “Enner Valencia sustained a deep laceration of his big toe on Tuesday evening in an accident at his home. “The number 31 trod on a piece of teacup, which he had dropped, and the resulting wound required emergency hospital treatment to clean and stitch the wound. “The forward was joined at hospital by West Ham United medical staff, who oversaw the surgery required.” Press Associationlast_img read more
