''[[wikipedia:Cannabis|Cannabis]]'' is an interesting domesticated crop with a long history of cultivation and use. [[wikipedia:Cannabis strains|Strains]] have been selected through informal breeding programs with undisclosed parentage and criteria. The term “strain” refers to minor morphological differences and grower branding rather than distinct cultivated varieties. We hypothesized that strains sold by different licensed producers are chemotaxonomically indistinguishable and that the commercial practice of identifying strains by the ratio of total Δ9-[[wikipedia:Tetrahydrocannabinol|tetrahydrocannabinol]] (THC) and [[wikipedia:Cannabidiol|cannabidiol]] (CBD) is insufficient to account for the reported human health outcomes. We used targeted [[wikipedia:Metabolomics|metabolomics]] to analyze 11 known [[wikipedia:Cannabinoid|cannabinoid]]s and an untargeted metabolomics approach to identify 21 unknown cannabinoids. Five clusters of chemotaxonomically indistinguishable strains were identified from the 33 commercial products. Only three of the clusters produce cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) in significant quantities, while the other two clusters redirect metabolic resources toward the [[wikipedia:Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid|tetrahydrocannabinolic acid]] (THCA) production pathways.

"Smart information systems in cybersecurity: An ethical analysis"

This report provides an overview of the current implementation of smart information systems (SIS) in the field of cybersecurity. It also identifies the positive and negative aspects of using SIS in cybersecurity, including ethical issues which could arise while using SIS in this area. One company working in the industry of telecommunications (Company A) is analysed in this report. Further specific ethical issues that arise when using SIS technologies in Company A are critically evaluated. Finally, conclusions are drawn on the case study, and areas for improvement are suggested. Increasing numbers of items are becoming connected to the internet. Cisco—a global leader in information technology, networking, and cybersecurity—estimates that more than 8.7 billion devices were connected to the internet by the end of 2012, a number that will likely rise to over 40 billion in 2020.
