Marijuana makes you paranoid? Study suggests your genes are to blame

Weed makes me paranoid. I ate an edible once and became super panicky and I never want to use cannabis again. Marijuana’s supposed to calm you down, but it always makes me feel the opposite.

You’ve probably heard such remarks ⁠— or said them yourself ⁠— in recent years as cannabis inches closer to becoming a mainstream recreational activity. While we’ve leapt forward considerably in our understanding of how cannabinoids interact with out endocannabinoid system and how cannabis can positively impact various medical symptoms, we haven’t yet cracked why marijuana makes some people chillax and others not so much.

UFC Champ Henry Cejudo talks cannabis, UFC, and legalization & stigma in Mexico

If you’ve never seen Henry Cejudo fight, don’t worry, you are not alone. After the blitzkrieg of blows Cejudo delivered in UFC 238, even other fighters like Marlon Moraes can hardly claim that they have. 

Depending on what sport you follow, Henry Cejudo has either been a household name for close to 15 years, or a relatively new addition to the elite tier of UFC fighters. In 2006, while still in high-school, Cejudo won the American Wrestling Federations National Freestyle Tournament at the most elite level. Within two years, Cejudo represented America in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games and brought home the gold, making him the youngest ever Mexican-American Freestyle Wrestling Olympic Champion.

Put simply, Independence Day staples like burgers and beer might have a new friend in bud. As data collected by Akerna Corp shows, each day leading up to Fourth of July experienced above-average sales spikes when compared to national averages for the day in question.

Hawaii has decriminalized marijuana

Hawaii on Tuesday decriminalized marijuana, making it the 26th state to decriminalize or legalize the drug.

The new law removes the possibility of jail time as a penalty for up to three grams of marijuana, but maintains a $130 fine. Hawaii’s Democrat-controlled legislature approved the bill and sent it to Democratic Gov. David Ige in May. Ige didn’t sign it, but he also didn’t veto it, effectively letting it become law on Tuesday. The new law will take effect on January 11, 2020.
