Marijuana prevents people from doing ‘hard’ drugs, claims study

Cannabis might still be illegal in the UK, but new research has found that the leafy substance might not be the vilified "gateway drug" it’s widely thought to be.

The five-year-long study involved 125 participants, all of whom were suffering from chronic pain.

83 were taking cannabis as a prescriptive pain mediator, whereas 42 chose to abstain.

They found that 34 per cent of the cannabis users stopped taking their medication, in comparison to just two per cent of the non-smokers, with 98 per cent continuing to take their prescribed drugs.

Catalonia referendum: EU won't intervene in regional independence crisis in Spain

Angela Merkel embroiled in refugee scandal in huge blow days before German election

A LEAKED internal German government report appears to condemn Chancellor Angel Merkel for opening the country's borders to refugees without first gaining parliamentary approval.

The admonishment comes two days before she seeks a fourth term in power in Sunday's general election - with 20 percent of voters still undecided who they will support.

The report by the Bundestag Scientific Office - a team of non party political legal experts - stated it is the role of the Bundestag to decide on all "matters of essential relevance to the state".

Experts said the opaque diplomatic language used in it signals parliament should have had the final say on the matter "as the decision led to a change in the proportion of non-Germans to Germans in the country".

Influential news magazine Der Spiegel said: "Bundestag lawyers clearly see an unclear legal situation for the border opening.

"This is an explosive opinion on the refugee crisis shortly before the election."
