Monitoring the Future Panel Study from the University of Michigan finds marijuana use among college students at 30-year high

first_imgThe Detroit News 5 September 2018Family First Comment: “Marijuana use among college-age people is at the highest level in three decades and fewer think using it is harmful, according to researchers at the University of Michigan. The annual study found marijuana use among the nation’s 19-to-22-year-olds has increased gradually over the past decade as marijuana becomes more easily accessible and young people view the drug as less risky. Researchers also found that youths who do not attend college are more likely to use marijuana. The study also surveyed other drug use among the age group and found non-medical use of prescription narcotic drugs was at its lowest since the late 1990s.”www.SayNopeToDope.nzMarijuana use among college-age people is at the highest level in three decades and fewer think using it is harmful, according to researchers at the University of Michigan.Months before Michigan voters will decide whether to legalize marijuana for recreational use, the annual study found marijuana use among the nation’s 19-to-22-year-olds has increased gradually over the past decade as marijuana becomes more easily accessible and young people view the drug as less risky.Researchers also found that youths who do not attend college are more likely to use marijuana. The study also surveyed other drug use among the age group and found non-medical use of prescription narcotic drugs was at its lowest since the late 1990s.The federal National Institute on Drug Abuse paid for the survey, Monitoring the Future Panel Study.“In this country, laws are changing, attitudes are changing, people are not perceiving use, even regular use, as dangerous as they used to,” said John Schulenberg, the study’s principal investigator and a psychology professor at the university.“And this could be the problem. On this daily use, the scientific evidence is pretty clear that this gets in the way of things, and it can be associated with, if not contributing to, a decline in mental health.READ MORE: read more

Jamaican Artisan Creates Wedding Rings With Deep Meaning

first_imgA wedding ring has long been an expression of eternal love and devotion for many couples. Choosing the right ring can be daunting, and there are so many options out there for those who seek traditional or contemporary wedding rings. For those who prefer something out of the ordinary, something with a deeper meaning, there’s Jamaican jewelry-maker Anna Ruth Henriques. She creates eye-catching, one-of-a-kind pieces for her clients.Born and raised in Jamaica, Henriques is a multifaceted, award-winning artist and jewelry-maker based in New York. Her custom wedding rings have adorned the fingers of Jamaicans at home and abroad, as well as others around the globe. “I am inspired by people’s personal stories, and what is meaningful to them on a spiritual and energetic basis, particularly,” Henriques says.However, a wedding ring by Henriques is likely to be an out of the ordinary design. “My work is for women who are not really crowd followers. Women who are not conforming to what Western society has imposed on all of us. Women who see that all is interconnected on this planet,” she shares.Henriques’ jewelry comes with light, liberating energy, she says, as she consciously ignites the fires of nature and female empowerment in each of her pieces.Undoubtedly, Henriques’ line of jewelry is art. Each unique piece evokes whimsy, uncanny creative expression, and meticulous attention to detail.Henriques lives a colorful life in New York where she has built success as an all-around artistic wonder-woman—writer, actor, performer, and of course, jeweler.Her artwork is in the permanent collections of New York’s Jewish Museum and El Museo del Barrio, as well as the National Gallery of Jamaica. She is also the author and illustrator of The Book of Mechtilde (Knopf) and is currently working on a novel in prose. She also starred in Eleanor Antin’s film, Man Without A World. Henriques launched her first jewelry collection at Barneys New York and went on to create a top-selling jewelry line, Aayenda, for a post-war Afghanistan-based non-profit, Future Brilliance. Her jewelry can be found in boutiques across the globe.“I grew up in the countryside of Jamaica where I spent a lot of time at my grandparents’ house outside barefoot, running around, playing with animals, including insects. My work is inspired by those times and nature,” she says.Henrique’s jewelry frequently showcases insects, nature and wildlife detailing, which mix seamlessly with spiritual undertones that she says are roused by notions of universality, embracing humanity and love. She describes her work as symbolic narratives, each telling a story that awakens, inspires, or heals.For couples looking for wedding rings that are thoughtfully created with deep meaning, this Jamaican artisan is a good bet.last_img read more
