Tight regulation of marijuana needed in Massachusetts to protect youth

first_img Read Full Story There’s reason for both enthusiasm and caution when it comes to the state law that will legalize marijuana for those for those age 21 and older that was approved Nov. 8, 2016 by Massachusetts voters, according to a Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health tobacco expert.While it’s good that there should be fewer drug-related arrests because of the law— along with the racial disparities that sometimes accompany those arrests —Massachusetts needs strict marijuana regulations to protect youth, Vaughan Rees, director of the Center for Global Tobacco Control and lecturer on social and behavioral sciences at Harvard Chan School, said in a Nov. 14, 2016 Boston Magazine article on the law’s public health implications.“I’m delighted that we’re going to see an end to young people being criminalized and facing jail sentences or prison sentences, and having a criminal record which will impact them, perhaps for life,” Rees said.However, he noted that without tight regulation, the marijuana industry, like the tobacco industry, could “target the youth of Massachusetts with their products to get them hooked, so they will become good customers and use their products, potentially to the detriment of their own health.”last_img read more

The 23-year-old struggled to make an impression in Spurs’ central midfield and was hooked at the interval after an anonymous first-half display against Burnley. Mourinho had some brutal advice for struggling Ndombele Spurs made a remarkable improvement in the second half, with Ndombele’s replacement Giovani Lo Celso starring as one of the best players on the pitch and the Argentine played a part in the build-up to the penalty. Ndombele, a £65 million arrival from Lyon in 2019, has been plagued by injury and has spent most of his time under Mourinho on the bench. And the Portuguese tactician made it abundantly clear the France international must improve his level with a brutal assessment of his performance. “I was expecting players who were not tired to give more to the team,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.center_img Loading… last_img read more
