Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer Avenatti Arrested for Domestic Violence

Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer Avenatti Arrested for Domestic Violence:  TMZ is reporting that Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti has been arrested in Los Angeles on a felony domestic violence charge against his estranged wife Lisa Storie Avenatti, but she has issued a statement to NBC claiming that Avenatti has “never been violent with her.”  Wow, one way or the other, it sounds like this guy’s gonna need himself a pretty good lawyer.  I’m not sure about this, but I think Michael Cohen is available.  One thing’s for sure, if he does get convicted, I think it’s a pretty safe bet Donald Trump isn’t going to pardon him.

Scientists Spot Possible Giant Impact Crater Under Greenland Ice:  A team of scientists say they’ve spotted a huge 20-mile wide scar hidden below a melting ice sheet in Greenland - which they believe to be an impact crater from a giant iron meteorite.  Meanwhile, Trump officials expressed doubt, claiming these pics don’t look much like a melting ice sheet to them - but more like a massive glob of shaving cream, that some prankster sprayed all over the rocks.

Husbands and Wives Who Smoke Pot Don’t Experience Same High:  According to a new data, it appears females get higher from smoking weed than males and also tend to become addicted much easier.  Now I can’t really speak about female addiction, but I do know my front lawn appears to be heavily addicted to weeds.

"...but she has issued a statement to NBC claiming that Avenatti has “never been violent with her.”..."

If she doesn't testify against him, there will be no conviction....

In fact, without a 'victim'or complainant, charges may have to be dropped....

Ron, this sounds a lot like a right wing setup to me.  Don't forget they also had Stormy Daniels arrested on bogus charges and tried to frame Mueller too.

Desperate times, desperate deeds.

If Avenatti isn't wearing Kevlar he is more daring than any of us could ever pretend to be.

Is marijuana addictive?

Marijuana use can lead to the development of problem use, known as a marijuana use disorder, which takes the form of addiction in severe cases. Recent data suggest that 30 percent of those who use marijuana may have some degree of marijuana use disorder.18 People who begin using marijuana before the age of 18 are four to seven times more likely to develop a marijuana use disorder than adults.19

Marijuana use disorders are often associated with dependence—in which a person feels withdrawal symptoms when not taking the drug. People who use marijuana frequently often report irritability, mood and sleep difficulties, decreased appetite, cravings, restlessness, and/or various forms of physical discomfort that peak within the first week after quitting and last up to 2 weeks.20,21 Marijuana dependence occurs when the brain adapts to large amounts of the drug by reducing production of and sensitivity to its own endocannabinoid neurotransmitters.22,23

Marijuana use disorder becomes addiction when the person cannot stop using the drug even though it interferes with many aspects of his or her life. Estimates of the number of people addicted to marijuana are controversial, in part because epidemiological studies of substance use often use dependence as a proxy for addiction even though it is possible to be dependent without being addicted. Those studies suggest that 9 percent of people who use marijuana will become dependent on it,24,25rising to about 17 percent in those who start using in their teens.26,27 

In 2015, about 4.0 million people in the United States met the diagnostic criteria for a marijuana use disorder;3 138,000 voluntarily sought treatment for their marijuana use.28

I hadn't seen that before, but I suppose its logical that someone can become addicted to most anything.  That said, I don't think we can seriously compare marijuana "addiction" and whatever consequences that implies to the likes of alcohol, tobacco or opioid addiction.

It's possible that newer stronger strains have more severe effects. But people can become dependent on anything. My wife gets irritable if I'm out of town overnight on business trips.
