Maine Poll Has Support for Legalization at 55%. A new Critical Insights tracking poll finds solid majority support for pot legalization six months before Maine voters head to the polls to vote on the legalization initiative from the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol. A question asking whether respondents whether they favored a law allowing marijuana to be "legalized, taxed, and regulated by adults 21 and over" got the 55%, but a second, more generic question, scored even higher at 59%. These poll results are similar to a March poll that had support for legalization at 54%.

Toronto Looks to Crack Down on Pot Shops. Mayor John Tory this week sent a letter to the municipal licensing committee looking for options to regulate the hundreds of pot shops that have opened in the city since the Liberals announced they were moving ahead with plans to legalize marijuana. Only two other Canadian cities, Vancouver and Victoria, both in British Columbia, have moved to regulate the dispensaries. "Left unaddressed, the number of these dispensaries will only increase," Tory wrote. "This proliferation brings with it potential health risks for individuals who patronize dispensaries where the substance for sale is completely unregulated."
The discovery of the properties of CBD oil has given rise to a new form of alternative medicine. Unlike the medical community, which has been struggling to create a viable formula to treat serious and life-threatening ailments, CBD oil has been around for several years. There are a variety of different forms available in the United States that contain the CBD oil benefits of an organic plant. The most popular form is known as CBD hemp oil, this is made by steeping CBD Cannabidiol in hemp plants for a long period of time in order to extract the plant's CBD and other important nutrients. The result is a highly potent product, which contains the highest amount of the healing properties of the CBD oil benefits to offer.
The human body is designed to use various nutrients for healing purposes. Many of these nutrients are derived from plant sources such as CBD oil. As humans we have been eating plants since the beginning of time for the purpose of providing health benefits. Even though this has been the case, today's western diets are lacking in the essential nutrients we need to maintain our optimal health.
For centuries human beings have relied on plants to provide these natural nutrients to us. In today's modern world however, there is nothing natural about our diets. Most of our foods contain only the artificial additives and preservatives necessary to help keep them from decaying or rotting away. This can be very detrimental to our health in the short and long term.
