States Allowing Medical Marijuana Have Fewer Painkiller Deaths

by Soulskill
An anonymous reader writes: Narcotic painkillers aren't one of the biggest killers in the U.S., but overdoses do claim over 15,000 lives per year and send hundreds of thousands to the emergency room. Because of this, it's interesting that a new study (abstract) has found states that allow the use of medical marijuana have seen a dramatic reduction in opioid overdose fatalities. "Previous studies hint at why marijuana use might help reduce reliance on opioid painkillers. Many drugs with abuse potential such as nicotine and opiates, as well as marijuana, pump up the brain's dopamine levels, which can induce feelings of euphoria. The biological reasons that people might use marijuana instead of opioids aren't exactly clear, because marijuana doesn't replace the pain relief of opiates. However, it does seem to distract from the pain by making it less bothersome." This research comes at a time when the country is furiously debating the costs and benefits of marijuana use, and opponents of the idea are paying researchers to paint it in an unfavorable light.

How to Make a Watermelon Grill

by John Farrier

Grilling meat is one of the great joys of summer. But it's also hot. So very hot. Sometimes, you just don't want the temperature to be a single degree higher.

This grill by Sandra Denneler can help. Her fruit bowl is made of a hollowed-out watermelon with wood skewers serving as a grill. The legs are three celery stalks which are soaked in cold water overnight to stiffen them. Blackberries stand in for the charcoal briquettes--except in Hank Hill's version, of course.

AI construct 'Master Control' walks through a turn of Civilization: Beyond Earth in this PAX video

by Darren Nakamura

Steven got to play Civilization: Beyond Earth with the help of an "actual scienceman" not long ago, but the 2K and Firaxis still brought something new to show at PAX Prime this year. Earlier today at the Firaxis Megapanel, the artificial intelligence "Master Control" shows off a faction aligned with the "Purity Affinity."

The Purity Affinity believes that humans are good enough as they are, and so they seek to control the environment through terraforming in order to meet their needs. This contrasts with other factions, who believe that species must advance itself to adapt to alien environments, through either cybernetic enhancement or alien gene splicing.

Of course, "purity" does not imply "peace," as Master Control demonstrates through ruthless domination of a competing faction, as well as unprovoked murder of a majestic alien beast.
