Latvia: Cannabis Butter Is a Legal Spread

Sun, 25 Apr 2004 07:00:00 GMT

The Taipei Times, 25 Apr 2004 - Garlic butter. Peanut butter. Or just butter. All may be household names. Now farmers in the Baltic state of Latvia want to introduce a hitherto unknown butter, cannabis butter, to the world. "I love it, especially like my grandma used to make," Latvian farmer Dainis Lagzdins said as he invited AFP to taste the dark green butter, a local specialty made of cannabis seed, which he calls a "miracle of taste and flavor." "Mmm, the taste is heavenly," he said.



Latvia: Big Jump In HIV Cases

Fri, 11 Jan 2002 08:00:00 GMT

New York Times, 11 Jan 2002 - The number of Latvians known to carry H.I.V., the virus that causes AIDS, grew last year by 84 percent and the number of new infections soared by 73 percent over the previous year, the deputy director of the National AIDS Prevention Center said. Four in five new infections were caused by needle-sharing among drug users, the deputy director, Inga Upmerce, said. Although the number of new infections in the nation of 2.4 million people remains tiny, at 807, and the total number of infections is only 1,765, the rate of increase is worrisome and demands new prevention tactics, she said. Latvia, like some other former Soviet republics, is experiencing one of the world's most rapid increases in infection. - --- MAP posted-by: Terry Liittschwager
