The Food and Drug Administration, for the first time, imposed far-reaching regulations on e-cigarettes, cigars and other tobacco products, barring sales of the items to anyone under 18 years old and requiring manufacturers to apply for government approval of their products.
So most of you know I have MS. I have always wanted to retire to Colorado even before legal weed there. So I now work from home and my family situation is such that moving there might be in the cards soon. I only know Denver and Colorado Springs and only from short visits. The moving budget will be smaller than I prefer and I know I won't be able to afford Denver, does anyone who knows the state know some good communities that are maybe a bit cheaper than Denver but still nice for raising teenagers? Just starting the research now and thought I would see what people know.
I get it. You didn't want to believe Trump was a serious candidate. No one did. Well, almost no one. But whatever, it's not a competition. Ideally, between his near-sweep of the Super Tuesday primaries and finally hearing a British dude say we have cause for concern, you've come to terms with the fact that he's definitely getting the Republican nomination, barring some kind of brokered convention fiasco. Still, there's no way Trump will ever get elected, and even if he is, he'd never be able to accomplish all the crazy things he says he wants to do. That's what everyone wants to believe, anyway. But I'm not so sure.
American political leaders around the country are casting about for a policy response to the widespread abuse of opioid painkillers that doesn't replicate the mistakes of past punitive approaches to drug use. Now, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has thrown her clout into that push for solutions -- and in a way that underscores the injustices of the War on Drugs over the past several decades. Warren is asking the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to research how medical and recreational marijuana might help alleviate the opioid epidemic. In a letter sent Monday to CDC head Dr. Thomas Friedan, Warren urged the agency to finalize its guidance to physicians on the dos and don'ts of prescribing oxycodone, fentanyl and other popular drugs in this category.
