  • Medical marijuana policies under fire by top B.C. doctors

    Medical marijuana could cut down on the use of addictive painkillers according to a new paper in the Canadian Journal of Public Health, but some of Vancouver's best known researchers say reluctant doctors and a confused federal government are failing to act. Study co-author Dr. Thomas Kerr says Canada is in the midst of an epidemic of opioid abuse and related overdose deaths, and that numerous studies have shown painkillers such as oxycontin are dangerous and prescribed too frequently. "If we can enhance access to medicinal cannabis for the right conditions it may have the positive effect of reducing prescription opioid misuse and the associated overdose epidemic," says Kerr.

    NASA has responded to worried citizens and conspiracy theorists to confirm that a massive two-mile wide asteroid will pass Earth on Saturday, but poses no threat. The gigantic asteroid is currently zooming through space at nail-biting speeds of 40,000 miles per hour, but the American space agency claims that there is no danger of it hitting Earth.

  • Boy found guilty of pushing fellow high school student to death under bus

    Provincial court Judge Peter Ross dismissed the defence's assertion that the accused was acting like a typical boy his age and was engaged in ordinary horseplay at the time, saying the young man should have known his actions could have deadly consequences.
