Quotes

For more information, please contact Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director, at: paul@norml.org . Full text of the study, "The effect of medical marijuana laws on crime: evidence from state panel data, 1990-2006" is available from PLoS ONE
"One of the great mysteries to my mind is: why did herbivory not happen before and why did it happen independently in several lineages?” he said in a statement. That's what's fascinating about this event. It's the first such occurrence, and it resulted in a colossal change in our terrestrial ecosystem."

"In any case, Samson said, an added boost in cognition certainly gave apes and humans an evolutionary edge."
