HealthWatch: New Migraine Treatment; Teen Marijuana Concerns Unfounded


WHAT MAY BE NEW RELIEF FOR MIGRAINE SUFFERERS. DR. MARSHAL IS HERE NOW. THIS HAS BEEN A LONG TIME COMING. WE HAVEN’T HAD A NEW CLASS SINCE THE 1990s. A HOT OF PEOPLE USE THEM. BUT NOT EVERYBODY CAN USE THEM. THEY CAUSE SIDE EFFECTS. THIS IS A NEW CLASS OF DRUGS THAT TARGET A SMALL AMOUNT — THAT CAUSE MIGRAINES. 50% OF PEOPLE WHO USED THESE DRUGS HAD PAIN RELIEF IN 12 HOURS. AND IT HAD VERY FEW SIDE EFFECTS. THEY’RE STILL WAITING FOR FDA APPROVAL. BUT THIS IS PROMISING. FOR PEOPLE WHO SUFFER FROM MIGRAINES, THIS COULD BE GREAT. PEOPLE WERE WORRIED WHEN MARIJUANA WAS LEGALIZED, IT WOULD ENTICE MORE KIDS TO SMOKE POT BUT A NEW STUDY FINDS THE OPPOSITE. THERE ARE A LOT OF PARENTS SAYING THIS IS GOOD NEWS. IT IS GOOD NEWS. WE HAVE TO DO MORE STUDIES AS MORE STATES LEGALIZE MARIJUANA. IN THIS ANALYSIS THEY LOOKED AT 1.4 MILLION HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS OVER 25 YEARS IN THE U.S. THEY FOUND THAT LEGALIZING MEDICAL MARIJUANA DIDN’T REALLY SEEM TO HAVE AN EFFECT ON TEEN USE. BUT LEGALIZING RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA ACTUALLY RESULTED IN FEWER TEENS USING MARIJUANA. NOW THE QUESTION IS, IS IT BECAUSE IT’S HARDER FOR THEM TO BUY IT ON THE STREET. BECAUSE DRUG DEALERS ARE BEING REPLACED BY DISPENSARIES. AND YOU HAVE TO SHOW PROOF OF AGE. WHO KNOWS. BUT IT’S GOOD NEWS FOR PARENTS
