Marijuana Consumers Work Out More Than Non-Consumers, Are More Likely to Have Full-Time Jobs

Those who consume marijuana work out more often than those who don’t, and are more likely to have a full-time job, according to a study of California marijuana consumers conducted by BDS Analytics.

The study separated people into three categories: Those who have consumed marijuana in the past six months, those who have not consumed marijuana in the past six months but are open to it (“acceptors”), and those who have not consumed marijuana in the past six months and aren’t open to doing so (“rejectors”).

The study found that the average age for marijuana consumers is 39. The average age for acceptors is 49, with the average age of rejectors being 56. Among consumers, 43% say they work out outdoors multiple times a week. This is significantly higher than acceptors (35%), and drastically higher than rejectors (just 25%).

This trend is continued among those who work out multiple times a week at a gym; 40% among consumers, 30% among acceptors and 27% among rejectors.

The study also found that marijuana consumers are considerably more likely to have a full-time job. Among consumers, 53% have a full-time job, compared to 44% for acceptors and just 33% (less than 1 in 3) among rejectors.

Colorado Legislature Approves Measure Allowing School Nurses to Administer Medical Marijuana

Legislation designed to allow school nurses to legally administer medical marijuana has been passed by the Colorado Legislature, and sent to Governor John Hickenlooper.

House Bill 1286 “provides a school nurse or the school nurse’s designee protection from criminal prosecution if he or she possesses and administers medical marijuana to a student at school.” The measure has been passed by both the Senate and House of Representatives, sending it to Governor Hickenlooper; he can now sign it into law, allow it to become law without his signature, or veto it.

Under current law, a primary caregiver may possess and administer medical marijuana in a nonsmokeable form to a student while the student is at school. However, nurses are not allowed to do the same. House Bill 1286 would change that.

Filed by Representative Dylon Roberts, the measure was passed by the 47 to 17, and by the Senate 30 to 5.
