A new study has found there may be a major side effect to smoking marijuana: Impairment while driving. Researchers from AAA found that people who drank alcohol and then smoked marijuana were more likely to commit violations such as running red lights, speeding and distracted driving. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss this urgent news: Here's How You Can Catch COVID Even If You're Vaccinated.The Cannabis and Alcohol Combo Can Lead To People "Driving Distracted," Study Finds"If you choose to use cannabis and use alcohol, generally you tend to be the type of person who takes more risk while driving, like running red lights, speeding, and driving distracted," said Skylar McKinley, Regional Director of Public Affairs for AAA Colorado. That's what KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs, Colorado, reported yesterday afternoon. According to the Colorado Department of Transportation and Mothers Against Drunk Driving, in 2019 there were 49 traffic fatalities in Colorado involving someone with THC above the legal limit. The following year, the Colorado Springs Police Department arrested 1,652 people for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol."We think these stories are powerful," said Sam Cole, Regional Communications Manager of the Colorado Department of Transportation. "When cannabis users hear them, we think it may change some perceptions and beliefs, and get them to understand the dangers of impaired driving better."According to the National Institutes Of Health, the use of cannabis has been linked to an increased risk of motor vehicle crashes. "Some people who use cannabis develop cannabis use disorder, which has symptoms such as craving, withdrawal, lack of control, and negative effects on personal and professional responsibilities," the NIH says.This has not stopped several states and localities from legalizing marijuana in the past few months, with the most visible being New York. The New York Times reported this month that New Yorkers are permitted to smoke cannabis in public wherever smoking tobacco is allowed, excepting schools, workplaces or inside a car. In New York City, it is banned in parks, beaches, boardwalks, pedestrian plazas and playgrounds, where tobacco smoking is banned.

After months of hammering at the door and demanding that they be allowed to increase their capacity limits, cinemas in New York got news from Gov. Andrew Cuomo that COVID restrictions would be loosened from 25% audience capacity to 33% audience capacity starting April 26. But one of the state’s top theater owners and industry lobbyists says that’s not enough. “We’re glad that we haven’t been completely ignored and that a step towards progress has been made, but we have made it very clear that theaters need to have the audience limit raised to 50% by Memorial Day weekend to survive financially,” Joe Masher, COO of Bowtie Cinemas and head of the National Association of Theater Owners’ New York division told TheWrap. “What New York is doing to us right now is simply doing damage to a worldwide industry.” Prior to Cuomo’s announcement, New York was one of the last two states in the country, along with Pennsylvania, to require 25% capacity limits for all of its counties. While some states enforce such a limit on a county-by-county basis — including California, Colorado and Oregon — major cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco raised their limits to 50% earlier...Read original story New York Movie Theaters Demand Capacity Rise to 50% by Memorial Weekend At TheWrap

Despite the fact that coronavirus vaccines are being administered, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has said: "Now's the time to double down" on public health measures "because you don't want to let your guard down thinking that vaccines are going to come to the rescue." With cases and deaths rising nationwide, he's got a point. Read on to see how to avoid COVID at this moment—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss this urgent news: Here's How You Can Catch COVID Even If You're Vaccinated. 1 If You Don't Get Your COVID-19 Vaccine As Soon as You Can, You Could Catch COVID-19 Now every adult who is qualified to get a COVID vaccine is eligible. Once 75% or more of us have it—or so, Dr. Fauci says don't get too hung up on the number—"we'll create a veil of protection in our country that we'll be able to put an end to this outbreak," says Fauci. "So it's a very critical period." Is the vaccine safe, you may be wondering? It was developed so quickly after all. "Was that reckless speed? And is that dangerous?" said Fauci. "And the answer to that is absolutely not because the speed is merely a reflection of the extraordinary advances in the science of vaccine platform technology, which has allowed us without compromising safety and without compromising scientific integrity to do something in a matter of months that would normally have taken years." 2 If You Delay Getting Your Vaccine Because You Worry Over Lasting Side Effects, You Are At Risk Fauci reiterated that the vaccines are safe and effective, with only mild side effects, like a pain in the arm or tiredness, if any, despite the possible connection between the Johnson&Johnson vaccine and blood clots. "If you look at the history of vaccinology, there have been virtually no adverse events that are realized years after you've taken the vaccine," he said. "I mean, it's just unheard of…Before a vaccine is even allowed to be put into someone's arm," thanks to testing, "you're already beyond the point where almost all of the history of adverse events have occurred. So although it's not a hundred percent chance that you're not going to have a late effect in some people, it is extraordinarily that you're going to see that." 3 You Must Adhere to "Universal Wearing of Masks" "The idea about having everyone for at least 100 days—at least—wear a mask. Everyone uniformly, so we don't have disparities where some people are adhering to public health measures and others are not," Dr. Fauci has said of President Joe Biden's desire for everyone to wear masks. Because you may spread COVID even after vaccination, it's important to wear a mask. 4 You Must Keep "Physical Distance" "Social distancing, also called 'physical distancing,' means keeping a safe space between yourself and other people who are not from your household," said the CDC. "To practice social or physical distancing, stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms' length) from other people who are not from your household in both indoor and outdoor spaces." 5 You Must Avoid "Crowds in Congregate Settings" Fauci has wanted against crowds but also groups of people gathering indoors. New York had once capped get-togethers at 10 people. "Ten may even be a bit too much," Fauci has said. "It's not only the number, it's the people who might be coming in from out of town. You want to make sure you don't have people who just got off a plane or a train. That's even more risky than the absolute number."He says indoor dining is still risky. So is travel.RELATED: Most COVID Patients Did This Before Getting Sick 6 You Must Wash "Your Hands as Frequently as You Can" If you touch anything that might have COVID on it, wash your hands. That's more important than washing, say, a bag of groceries. "I do have a bag that I bring into my house. Instead of worrying about the bag, I'll open the bag, and then I'll just wash my hands thoroughly, which is what you should do," Fauci told Yahoo Finance's All Markets Summit. "If you look at the transmissibility, the epidemiology that we have a lot of experience with now, that is very likely a very, very minor, minor aspect of transmissibility. We can't say it's zero, it certainly is real and is finite, but it's minus," Fauci said. 7 How to Stay Safe During This Pandemic "Now we're on the threshold of the vaccine coming to the rescue at the same time, we have a terrible burden of infection and disease," says Fauci. "That's the reason why the one thing we don't want people to say as well, 'vaccines are here, we can just relax public health measures.' You can't—we have to even more so double down now on things….Ultimately vaccines will come to the rescue, but it will take several months before they do."

It's 4/20, a day that has become synonymous with marijuana usage, so what better time to consider the medical benefits of marijuana, according to doctors (as well as the many risks). "Medical marijuana is available as an oil, pill, vaporized liquid and nasal spray, as dried leaves and buds, and as the plant itself," say the experts at the Mayo Clinic. "The herb is typically used to treat nausea and vomiting associated with cancer treatment, loss of appetite and weight loss associated with HIV/AIDS, epilepsy, chronic pain and muscle spasms. Research on the use of marijuana for specific conditions shows" the following. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss this urgent news: Here's How You Can Catch COVID Even If You're Vaccinated. 1 Marijuana Might Help Your Glaucoma "Marijuana might reduce the pressure in the eye caused by this eye condition," says the Mayo Clinic. "However, the effect appears to last only a few hours. Some findings indicate that marijuana may decrease blood flow to the optic nerve, increasing the risk for vision loss in people with glaucoma." 2 Marijuana Might Help Nausea and Vomiting Associated with Cancer Treatment "Research has shown that an active ingredient in marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), effectively reduces nausea and vomiting in people undergoing chemotherapy," says the Mayo Clinic. 3 Marijuana Might Help With Your Pain "Marijuana use might reduce the intensity of shooting or burning pain often due to nerve damage (neuropathic pain) caused by HIV, diabetes and other conditions," says the Mayo Clinic. 4 Marijuana Might Help With Your Spasticity "Marijuana use might reduce muscle stiffness or spasms and urinary frequency caused by multiple sclerosis," says the Mayo Clinic. "It's not clear if marijuana effectively treats seizures."RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers 5 Final Word From the Doctors—"Use Caution" "Evidence has shown that marijuana can effectively treat chemotherapy-induced nausea. It might also reduce muscle spasms associated with multiple sclerosis and decrease the intensity of neuropathic pain," says the Mayo Clinic. "However, marijuana use can cause cognitive impairment and should be used with caution if you have a mental health condition. In many places marijuana use is considered illegal for any purpose."They note that "medical marijuana use is generally considered safe" but can also cause these extensive side effects:HeadachesDry mouth and dry eyesLightheadedness and dizzinessDrowsinessFatigueNausea and vomitingDisorientationHallucinationsIncreased heart rateIncreased appetiteFor more warnings from the Mayo Clinic, see here, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise.

A Government watchdog agency has issued an "urgent" warning about Peleton's treadmill after many incidents of children—and a pet—being injured, 39 in all, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Peleton itself had previously announced at least one child had died. In a statement released over the weekend, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission "staff believes the Peloton Tread+ poses serious risks to children for abrasions, fractures, and death," the agency said in its announcement. "In light of multiple reports of children becoming entrapped, pinned, and pulled under the rear roller of the product, CPSC urges consumers with children at home to stop using the product immediately." Read on to find out more about the controversy—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss this urgent news: Here's How You Can Catch COVID Even If You're Vaccinated.The "Urgent Warning" Came After a Child's Death, Says the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission"The urgent warning," says the agency, "comes less than a month after Peloton itself released news of a child's death by a Peloton Tread+ and CPSC's announcement of an investigation into that incident…. It is believed that at least one incident occurred while a parent was running on the treadmill, suggesting that the hazard cannot be avoided simply by locking the device when not in use. Reports of a pet and objects being sucked beneath the Tread+ also suggest possible harm to the user if the user loses balance as a result."RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" CancersThe Peloton CEO and Co-Founder Refused to Recall the TreadmillJohn Foley, Peleton CEO and Co-Founder, responded to the Commission by refusing to recall the product. You may "have read news reports suggesting that CPSC believes that we should stop selling or recall the Tread+," he wrote in a blog post. "I want to assure you that we have no intention of doing so. The Tread+ is safe when our warnings and safety instructions are followed, and we know that, every day, thousands of Members enjoy working out safely on their Tread+.""But I urge you to stay vigilant," he continued. "Remember, the Tread+ is not for children under 16, and children, pets, and objects need to be kept away from the Tread+ at all times. When the Tread+ is not in use, store the Safety Key away from the Tread+ and out of reach of children. Our Tread instructors remind us at the beginning and end of each class to keep these safety instructions top of mind. In addition, many of you have chimed in on social media in recent weeks to share helpful tips, such as working out during naptime, having someone watch the kids while you work out, or using a baby gate to keep children, pets, and objects away. Thank you for sharing those suggestions with our community.""Our hearts go out to Members who have had an incident where a child or pet was injured and who want their privacy at this time," he added. "As a parent myself, I hope that our Peloton community continues to treat each other with respect and compassion."
