Through my eyes: Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome (CHS)

There is a new condition that is affecting marijuana users at a growing rate, and it’s called cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome (CHS).

Pune: Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Sunday said it was an insult to Lord Ram that people were being killed in his name as he hit out at the spate of lynchings in the country. “What have we seen in the past six years? It started with the killing of Mohsin Shaikh in Pune. Then, Mohd Akhlaq was killed because he was reportedly carrying beef. However, it was reported later that it was not beef.

Rankings Winners & Losers: Karolina Pliskova closes in on No. 1

“Tennis doesn’t have an idea problem,” former USTA head of pro tennis Arlen Kantarian told a group of our editors 20 years ago. “It has a get-it-done problem.” The question we were discussing wasn’t a new one: Why doesn’t tennis have its version of the Ryder Cup?
