Toxins In Marijuana Smoke May Be Harmful To Health, Dana-Farber Study Finds
(CNN) — Smoking weed may expose you to the same type of toxic chemicals found in tobacco smoke, a new study finds.

NH Turkey Sightings Increase Significantly During Coronavirus Pandemic
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – Turkey sightings are on the rise in New Hampshire, possibly because of the coronavirus pandemic. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department said results from its 2020 winter survey reflect 2,309 flocks totaling 40,476 turkeys statewide. That was more than four times as many turkeys counted in 2019 and twice as many as reported in 2018. “With many people spending more time at home last winter, there was an increase in backyard bird feeding as well as bird watching, which may have contributed to the uptick in reports,” said Allison Keating, a state turkey biologist. More than 46,000 peo...
