Where have I been, what have I seen?

I realized I haven’t blogged in about a month. Where have I been?

I discovered an app called periscope. It lets you live stream and talk and others can type and chat. The few people who have came to my “scopes” are pretty shy, so I feel like I am talking to myself, but it is fun.

In the news:

There was a recent study on marijuana use and health



Teen marijuana use not linked to later depression, lung cancer, other health problems, study finds

Study contradicts some prior marijuana research

“Chronic marijuana use by teenage boys does not appear to be linked to later physical or mental health issues such as depression, psychotic symptoms or asthma, according to a new study.”

One of the researchers stated:

“We wanted to help inform the debate about legalization of marijuana, but it’s a very complicated issue and one study should not be taken in isolation,” Bechtold said.

New Project:

MentalHealthJustice.net (has twitter and facebook pages) is collecting videos of people’s stories with mental illness.. They can be about 3-5 minutes

  1. I’ve developed an addiction to The Experience Project….

    As for the marijuana study, the majority of the literature points in the other direction. There was a recent study that suggested that the theory of relativity was wrong. I am not about to change my mind because of either of these studies.

  2. Glykeria Identicon Glykeria

    Genetic linkage makes a lot of sense (and it might explain why one study wouldn’t find a link and others would – perhaps the study that found no link happened to have fewer subjects with the risk factor genes).
