Social Anxiety is also called social phobia which is an anxiety disorder in which a person has an excessive and unreasonable fear of social situations. Anxiety (intense nervousness) and self consciousness arise from a fear of being closely watched, judged and criticized by others.

As Justin Trudeau’s Liberals prepare to tackle the politics of legalizing weed, one challenge they face is how to crack down on those who light-up before getting behind the wheel. Trudeau has not revealed exactly how he plans to fulfill his election promise and it’s not clear whether Parliament would limit how much someone could smoke before driving. But looking at how states like Colorado and Washington deal with drivers who have smoked marijuana could provide a blueprint. Back in February 17...

To some 420 could mean alot of things such as: It's a police code. It's the number of active chemicals in marijuana. It's Adolph Hitler's birthday (what would this have to do with pot?). It's "teatime" in Holland. It's the numbers in Bob Dylan's song "Rainy Day Women, #12 & 35" multiplied. It refers to Highway 420 in Ontario, Canada, where weed grew freely in the '60s. It's the number between 419 and 421. But for me 420 means more than that, its a lifestyle, a day where us 420 people (fami...

A group of federal researchers commissioned to prove the government’s claim that marijuana has “no medicinal value” may have unwittingly let some crucial research slip through the cracks, forcing the United States to admit that cannabis can kill cancer. Although, at first glimpse, the latest claim appears to be a cruel April Fools' prank from Nora D. Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), but after careful inspection, it seems that the federal government is actually su...

VANCOUVER — Marc Emery's online magazine, Cannabis Culture, encourages marijuana use during pregnancy for relief of nausea, loss of appetite and to help get emotions under control.

In an online article, Dr. Kathy Galbraith, known as "Dr. Kate," writes: "Pot can be safely used durin...

Canadians buying legal marijuana have a much slimmer selection than their American counterparts. That’s because Health Canada-licensed producers are allowed to sell only dried cannabis through the mail to registered patients and must stay away from “edibles” or other forms of the drug that are regulated south of the border. However, like medicinal and recreational pot sold in Washington State, Canada’s 17 licensed producers offer dozens of strains of dried leaves that help patients treat a rang...

The 2011 Global Commission on Drug Policy's opening declaration -- "the global war on drugs has failed, with devastating consequences for individuals and societies ... fundamental reforms in national and global drug control policies are urgently needed" -- could hardly be more definitive. Front and centre is the continued prohibition of cannabis, arresting 57,429 Canadians for simple possession in 2012. On the afternoon of April 20, otherwise known as "4/20," recreational cannabis users from al...

Medical marijuana users could help researchers define risks, benefits Besides pain management, pot is being used to treat things like Crohn’s disease, chronic seizures. The number of Canadians authorized to use medical marijuana has skyrocketed, even as medical experts warn that not enough is known about its risks and benefits. Now some are calling for researchers to tap into that growing pool of users to help answer some of those questions. In 2002, a year after the government first permitted...
