A scientist is betting his retirement on a new line of medical cannabis products in Michigan.
Steve Goldner,who co-invented liquid methadone in the '70s, just invented a new product that many are going to be upset wasn't around when they were growing up. It's called Parachute, and it's a pill made out of pure CBD that immediately sobers you up if you get too high.
With all the marijuana edibles you can legally buy in some states now, a lot of people who aren't used to marijuana are getting way too high and some even freak out. So this new invention sounds like it could prevent a ton of freakouts and ER trips. It can also help people think twice about driving under the influence.
It sounds super simple to use as well. You just put one under your tongue, it dissolves, and within five minutes you'll feel right again.
For now, the pills are just available in Michigan, but they should expand to other states where marijuana is legal soon.
