Marijuana has been given the green light when it comes to some form of legalization (medical or recreational), in more than half of all U.S. states. Undoubtedly, marijuana has some benefits to human health, such as pain management, but it can also influence the way people move. Researchers at the University of South Australia found pot smokers walk differently than non-smokers.

There were subtle differences in how each group walked, and there were long-lasting changes in certain elements of a person's gait. The marijuana group, who were moderate-to-light users, moved their knees faster when swinging their leg forward to walk, but tended to move their shoulders less. The researchers did not find a difference in walking speed or balance.

  The Internet Gave Hilarious Step-By-Step Instructions On How To Eat Pizza In addition to being everyone's main source of distraction and a vast collection of cat memes, the internet is a depository of how-tos. For those unfamiliar, Quora, a destination that offers up everything from the mundane to the must-know, is a place where users can post questions. Well, someone asked, "What should I do if I got a pizza?" and the site's vast network responded with a slew of different options, but the first one is a real-life, step-by-step guide on how to consume a pizza.

In the marijuana group, the velocity of a person's knee during the swing phase of gait was greater by seven percent than in non-drug users. The velocity of the knee during a swing phase of walking is a sign of increased cadence. Verity Pearson-Dennett, corresponding author of the study, believes the main take-away is that marijuana use can lead to subtle changes in the way people move.

"The changes in walking were small enough that a neurologist specializing in movement disorders was not able to detect changes in all of the cannabis users," Pearson-Dennett told PsyPost.

To examine the effects of marijuana use on gait, researchers observed 22 participants who did not use drugs and 22 who had a history of pot use, but no history of illegal stimulant or opioid use. They underwent a series of screening tests, a gait and balance test, which included a motion capture system, and a clinical neurological exam of movement. 

If You Call Your SO Your "Roommate," Your Relationship Is Doomed

  If You Call Your SO Your In the midst of a bar-hopping boozy weekend, a good guy friend of mine and I were discussing relationships over coffee as we nursed our hangovers with sleepy eyes and uneasy stomachs. In the midst of a bar-hopping boozy weekend, a good guy friend of mine and I were discussing relationships over coffee as we nursed our hangovers with sleepy eyes and uneasy stomachs. He was going on and on about a s--- night where he ended up being the listening ears for a drunk ex-girlfriend. Taking a breath only to sip on her vodka soda, she was nonstop complaining about her relationship and how she wanted out . . . FAST. Yikes.

Similarly, a 2008 study found increasing levels of THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, was linked with increased body sway. Meanwhile, a 2006 study noted high-potency marijuana (13 percent THC) has led to small motor deficits, like changes in balance. It seems marijuana dosage and frequent use are influential factors that can affect overall motor functioning.

The new study, published in the journal of Drug and Alcohol Dependence, does have some limitations. First, it's a small sample size, meaning there are still a number of questions that need to be addressed. For example, does frequent pot use mean there's a greater level of impairment? Pearson-Dennett also admitted, "the physiological mechanisms that underpin changes in movement are not well understood.”

It's known marijuana can significantly impair judgement, motor coordination, and reaction time. Specifically, when it comes to driving, studies have found there's a direct relationship between blood THC concentration and an impaired ability to drive. Moreover, marijuana may cause orthostatic hypotension (head rush or dizziness on standing up), possibly raising danger from fainting and falls, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

Indonesia Doesn't Know How Many Islands It Has

  Indonesia Doesn't Know How Many Islands It Has Indonesia Doesn't Know How Many Islands It HasBy last count, according to a study conducted by the Indonesian Geo-spatial Information Agency in 2010 and verified by the UN and CIA in 2012, Indonesia is made up of 13,466 islands, 922 of which are permanently inhabited. This is a few grand below a 2002 survey that put the number at 18,307 or a 1996 estimate of 17,508. Now, as a member of the ministry's counting team (dream job alert!) told the BBC, they are looking to add at least 1,700 new islands at August's meeting, based on extensive geographical surveying and following stringent UN rules as to what constitutes an island.

As the decriminalization of marijuana accelerates in the U.S., there still remains more research to be done related to the risks of marijuana use on the body and mind.
