The Huffington Post Is Now HuffPost

Readers already refer to it as the HuffPost, so it was only a matter of time until The Huffington Post officially rebranded to the HuffPost. In her efforts to overhaul the new vision of the company, Editor-in-Chief Lydia Polgreen is changing the name across all 17 global HuffPost editions. Polgreen emphasizes that these changes are not intended to break from the site’s namesake,  Arianna Huffington, as Polgreen and HuffPost are very proud of the legacy she’s created. The rebranding is Polgreen’s effort to grow and appeal to a broader audience, “It seems really clear to me that there’s a tremendous need, not just in the United States but globally, for a news organization that really speaks to the lives and needs of people who feel left out… So HuffPost is really there to reach out and say, ‘We’re here for you.’”


As medical marijuana continues to gain ground across the US, more and more colleges are adding cannabis to their curriculum. In fact, more than half of America's pharmaceutical schools (62 percent) now teach students about medical marijuana according to a new survey conducted by researchers from the University of Pittsburgh's School of Pharmacy. "With more states legalizing medical marijuana, student pharmacists must be prepared to effectively care for their patients who may use medical marijuana alone or in combination with prescription or over-the-counter medications," the study's authors wrote.
