Democrats Ask Drug Policy Office to Do More to Combat Opioid Epidemic
Twenty Democratic senators are asking the Office of National Drug Control Policy to do more to combat the opioid epidemic, according to the Associated Press.
A new application for the Apple iPhone called Cannabis uses mapping technology to help marijuana users find the nearest source for buying the drug, the Guardian reported July 20.
The application, which has been approved by Apple and costs $2.99, won't point users to a local street corner dealer but does provide locations and directions to legal medical collectives, doctors, clinics and other sources for medical-marijuana in U.S. states where the drug is approved for medical use. The Cannabis app also provides information on marijuana advocacy organizations.
iPhone owners are expected to use the application to compare prices on marijuana, and the developers promise updates as the drug becomes more widely available for legal use.
