Doctors in Canada argue that “Cannabis Edibles” are not as safe as we think. They argue that consistent users have too many misconceptions about weed edibles. Actually, just after the first intake of weed edibles, users find it good for themselves. 

In October 2018, Canada has fully legalized the use of cannabis. Even the cannabis edibles were made legal as well. Meanwhile, Illinois, U.S has become the 11th state to legalize cannabis. 

But just because cannabis is legalized in most of the U.S states, doesn’t mean it’s completely harmless. As still due to its usage people are heading towards the emergency room because of anxiety and vomiting. 

Edible Cannabis symptoms are not Life Threatening but definitely be distressing 

Lawrence Loh, a clinician, and public health researcher told that edible cannabis causes the potential harm. As the body acts differently with edible cannabis or when the drug is smoked or vaped. 

We cannot say the symptoms of edible cannabis life-threatening but it is actually distressing. It’s distressing when people coming down to the doctors for anxiety issues, racing hearts, and even psychosis. 

The other concern regarding edible cannabis is its consumption by children or pets. Loh said, children, resemble it with the non-cannabis treats like gummies or brownies. 

Loh’s suggestion

According to LOH and his co-authors, people believe that these edibles are risk-free. They think of them as a wonder that it helps to boost mood, lowers anxiety or helps with better sleep.

Loh suggested that now doctors must start asking people regarding their cannabis use history. The way they asked about our history of smoking or drinking. And then counsel people about its risk and to take it carefully keeping it away from the kids or pets.

(Reuters) – Eleven-year-old skateboarder Sky Brown, who is hoping to become Britain’s youngest Olympian next year, fractured her skull and broke bones in her left hand after falling from a ramp during a training session in California.

Brown posted a video of the accident on Instagram and reassured supporters that she was doing fine and was going to work even harder when she returns.

“I don’t usually post (videos of) my falls or talk about them… but this was my worst fall. I just want everyone to know that it’s ok, don’t worry, I’m ok,” she said.

“I’m going to push boundaries for girls with my skating and surfing. I’m going for gold in 2021 and nothing will stop me.”

The BBC reported that Brown was taken to hospital by helicopter and was unresponsive on arrival but is expected to make a complete recovery.

“Sky landed head-first off a ramp on her hand,” her father Stewart was quoted as saying by the BBC.

“When she first came to hospital, everyone was fearful for her life… Sky had the gnarliest fall she’s ever had and is lucky to be alive… (she) remains positive and strong, the whole medical team is shocked to see her positivity.”

At the 2021 Tokyo Games, Brown is hoping to eclipse the record set by swimmer Margery Hinton, who was 13 years and 43 days old when she competed at the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam.

Five sports, including baseball, skateboarding and surfing, will feature in Tokyo as part of the International Olympic Committee’s revamp of the Games programme to attract younger audiences.

Celtics' Poirier joins Floyd protests with team mates

PARIS (Reuters) – Celtics center Vincent Poirier says he took part in a protest with NBA team mates Marcus Smart and Enes Kanter in Boston on Sunday over the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis last week.

“Even as someone who is white this must concern me,” Poirier told French sports daily L’Equipe on Tuesday.

“It touches me since I have black team mates, black friends, my wife is of mixed race.

“I can walk the streets freely and I want it to be the case for everyone. It bothers me that it’s not the case,” the Frenchman added.

Video footage showed a white Minneapolis police officer kneeling on the neck of Floyd, 46, for nearly nine minutes before he died on May 25, triggering outrage and protests across the United States.

Poirier added that there had been similar issues in France, highlighting the case of 24-year-old black man Adama Traore, who died in 2016 while being driven to a police station following his arrest over an altercation.

The circumstances of Traore’s death are still under investigation by justice authorities.

Poirier, who signed for the Celtics in 2019, said he wanted to use his standing in the sports world to bring attention to such issues.

“At the time of Adama Traore, I did not have this recognition but now that I have it, I try to use it. The fact that I play for Celtics has an extra impact,” he said.
