Smoking dope linked to heart disease: Study

women working out

There’s a bit of bad health news on the horizon for dope smokers.

A study published shows a strong correlation between smoking marijuana and heart issues.

THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive component of marijuana that makes you high) binds to cannabinoid receptors in the vasculature and is implicated in cardiovascular disease.

NBC News reported that the study, done among close to 160,000 people (courtesy the UK Biobank), compared the health of 11,000 who smoke marijuana at least once a month to two other groups: 122,000 in the same age group (40 to 69) who do not smoke cannabis at all and 23,000 who smoke it less than once a month.

Age, gender and body mass index (things that also affect heart disease risk) were taken into account.

Canadian border agents seizing more cannabis than ever before

Canadian border

 

The CBSA is reminding Canadians that bringing cannabis into or out of Canada is illegal. The memo comes as international mail centres across the country are experiencing processing delays due to cannabis imports without valid permits.

Seizures of cannabis at Canada’s border crossings have soared through the pandemic.

That's prompted the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to issue a notice to Canadians that although the drug has been legalized and regulated in Canada, and some parts of the United States, it remains illegal to carry or ship it across the border.

It was supposed to make billions upon billions as an industry, and the investors were chasing millions of their own. Instead, thousands of Canadians were left holding empty bags, having lost jobs, savings and opportunities to the promise of fast money and an industry that could never have possibly matched the hype.

How did (almost) everyone get the weed industry so wrong? And what happened to those Canadians who bought into the hype?
