Synth repairman accidentally gets high after touching old LSD on a vintage ’60s synthesizer
"After opening a red-paneled module on the synth, he noticed there was “a crust or a crystalline residue on it.” Naturally, he did what any person tasked with fixing up an old instrument would do: spray some cleaner on it, pick at the residue with his finger, and try to dislodge it by scratching it off. But 45 minutes later, he started to feel some tingling. It was the start of a nine-hour acid trip."

Facebook’s newest ‘fact checkers’ are Koch-funded climate deniers
In its latest disastrous move to fight the online epidemic of fake news, Facebook’s fact-checking effort announced last week that it was teaming up with CheckYourFact.com — an arm of the conservative, anti-science media site The Daily Caller.

The Daily Caller, which has published misinformation about climate science for years, was co-founded by the science-denying Fox News host Tucker Carlson and is backed by major conservative donors, including Charles and David Koch, the billionaire fossil fuel barons who are the single biggest funders of climate science misinformation.

“It is appalling that Facebook has teamed up with a Koch-funded organization that promotes climate change denial,” leading climatologist Michael Mann told ThinkProgress. Mann, whose own work has been misrepresented by The Daily Caller, added, “Facebook must disassociate itself from this organization.”

Dicksons take a Walk in the Wind
In 1992 musicians Reg and Lynne Dickson had lived at their beloved Davis Bay home for 20 years. One of their favourite activities was a brisk walk along the beach, whatever the weather. When they were asked to write a song for an album that would raise funds for cystic fibrosis research, they wrote about what they knew. Walk in the Wind was the title track. Forty local businesses chipped in to cover the costs of recording, and though the Dicksons wrote seven songs for that album, Walk in the Wind became one of their most popular.

“We’ve been singing that song ever since,” said Lynne. “People sing along – they like it.

This month the prestigious Cypress Choral Music company has arranged the song for choirs and the company’s own choir recorded it. The music is now available to other choristers across the country.

The Dicksons are delighted with the result. “They’ve added extra parts,” Lynne said, “really made it nice and it makes for a richer harmony.”

Plans revealed for new $3.5bn ski resort just 45 minutes from Whistler
Developers in British Columbia have proposed to build a new resort, currently known as Garibaldi at Squamish, on Brohm Ridge on Mount Garibaldi, just north of the town of Squamish. Total investment is expected to reach $3.5 billion (£2.67 million).

The plans are for an area just 45 minutes drive from North America’smost popular resort Whistler Blackcomb. Like many of British Columbia’s biggest resorts, Garibaldi would be located off the Sea-to-Sky highway, the main connecting road from Vancouver, an hour's drive away from Squamish.

The original concept for the development of Garibaldi dates back to the mid-Nineties, however, according to the resort’s website, plans have now entered the master planning stage. By 2020 it is hoped the project will have the full support of the local government, after which it will be able to enter a final design stage before construction can begin in 2023, with a projected opening date of 2025.

The Hunt for Stoned Drivers
"Turning on the radio increases the risk of accident almost twofold," NORML's Paul Armentano says. "Driving with more than two passengers in the car increases one's risk of accident more than twofold. Obviously, texting while driving dramatically increases one's risk of accident. On the spectrum of risk, being under the influence of marijuana is at the low end. Public safety campaigns and the law need to provide that kind of perspective."

Given the relatively small hazard posed by marijuana, legalizing it would not necessarily lead to more traffic fatalities. To the extent that marijuana serves as a substitute for alcohol, legalization might even improve road safety by replacing severely impaired drinkers with modestly impaired cannabis consumers.

Study Finds Marijuana Motivates People To Exercise, Smashing Lazy Stoner Stereotype
Researchers at the University of Colorado surveyed more than 600 marijuana consumers in states where it is legal to assess how people use cannabis in relation to exercise. Their results, published this month in the journal Frontiers in Public Health, poke yet another hole in the lazy, couch-locked stoner stereotype.

Almost 500 participants said they endorse using marijuana one hour before, or up to four hours after, exercising. And based on data from the questionnaire, those who did use cannabis in that timeframe worked out longer than consumers who didn’t pair the activities. Specifically, those who engaged in co-use worked out an average of 43 minutes longer for aerobic exercise and 30 minutes longer for anaerobic exercise.

What’s behind the trend?

There are a few known barriers to exercise that researchers have identified: a lack of motivation, difficult recovery after working out and low enjoyment of the activity. Cannabis seems to help lift those barriers for some individuals.

Seventy percent of respondents said they agree or strongly agree that “cannabis increases enjoyment of exercise,” 78 percent said that marijuana “enhances recovery from exercise” and just over 50 percent said that it “increases motivation.”

Under right circumstances non-cannabis users can become legally impaired
"Chirico says a non-user in a room with people smoking cannabis could end up legally impaired just because the person was breathing in second-hand smoke.

Chirico says the size of the room, the amount of ventilation, the number of people smoking cannabis, the concentration of THC in the drug and the length of time to exposure are all factors that determine if the drug ends up in your system.

Chirico adds another factor is the non-user’s own tolerance level.

“So under the right conditions, second-hand cannabis smoke can result in you becoming legally impaired as if you really smoked it,” he said.

“You may not feel the effect of the drug, you may simply have the drug in your system and that’s the problem.”

Chirico uses an example of a non-user who is driving and a friend in the vehicle decides to smoke cannabis.

He says if the windows are rolled up and the level of THC in the drug is high “that’s a good example of how the person being exposed could be considered to be legally impaired.”

Chirico says compounding the issue is current testing doesn’t differentiate if the person actively smoked the cannabis or happened to be in the same area where it was being smoked."

Meet the Pro Athletes Advocating for CBD
In his younger days, Ryan VandenBussche lived a life others would consider a dream. At just 19 he was already playing professional hockey, first in the minor leagues and then moving on to the big time in the NHL. Over 14 years, he became known as one of the toughest enforcers in the league.

But that badge of honor came with a price. Nearly two decades worth of big collisions, battles for loose pucks, and bare-knuckle brawls resulted in broken bones, surgeries, and more than 20 concussions. Scars healed, but the pain lingered.

The dream could have become a nightmare for VandenBussche if he chose to go down the painkiller rabbit hole. But he didn’t. He found cannabidiol.

U.S. firm plans $5.8 million factory to produce ‘HempWood’
A Maryland, USA company says it will invest $5.8 million in a factory in Kentucky to produce HempWood, an “eco-friendly timber” that uses hemp fiber to create a wood-like material.

The company, Fibonacci LLC, said it has secured a lease on an 11,000 sq. ft. facility in western Kentucky and plans to begin production this summer. Fibonacci owner Greg Wilson said he has contracted for delivery of more than 800 tons of hemp stalks from Kentucky growers to get operations up and running.

‘Mimicking’ oak

The processing is based on an algorithm that mimics the growth cycle and attributes of an oak tree, according to Wilson, and determines hardness, density and stability.

Advantages of hemp over wood include a much quicker growing time and greater density in the material which can be used for a wide range of applications which usually are based on wood, such as furniture and flooring.

HempWood products will be in the form of blocks, pre-cut boards, flooring, cutting boards and skateboards at prices cheaper than those for oak products, the company said.
