Australia may legalize medical marijuana in August

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, July, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

A Senate committee representing all Australia’s major parties is preparing a Regulator of Medicinal Cannabis Bill to legalize medical marijuana, despite warnings of regulatory complications with both Australian and international law, a report says.

The committee includes the Coalition (the Liberal Party, the National Party, the Northern Territory Country Liberal Party, and Queensland Liberal branch the Liberal National Party), the Labor Party and crossbench senators. They will “strongly recommend” parliament pass a cross-party bill setting up a medical marijuana regulator, the Sydney Morning Herald reports, citing Fairfax Media sources close to the legislation debate.

Today, over two-thirds of Australians support the idea of medical marijuana use and only 9 percent oppose it, a recent survey by Palliative Care Australia has found.

The leader of Australia Greens, Richard Di Natale, initiated the bill in November last year. The committee received the bill in February and after conducting public hearings and attracting nearly 200 public submissions, it is set to present its report on August 10.

Recreational Marijuana Taxes Could Generate $5M-$19M For Alaska

A big reason why support for marijuana legalization is surging is because of the tax revenue potential that legalization would create. Every state in America needs more funding, and marijuana legalization basically creates a new tax revenue source out of thin air. Marijuana sales are going on in every state in America regardless of the legal status of marijuana in those states, so by bringing those transactions out of the shadows and into the daylight, marijuana can help states with funding.

Alaska voters approved marijuana legalization in 2014, and the Alaska Department of Revenue recently released the results of a study that estimates how much money Alaska will make from marijuana taxes. Per Marijuana Business Daily:

A report by the Alaska Department of Revenue estimates that the state will collect anywhere between $5 million and $19 million in taxes from recreational cannabis sales to locals, indicating the huge amount of uncertainty over the potential size of the market.

The state did not provide a revenue projection, though the report estimates annual consumption among residents will range from 102,000 ounces to 384,000 ounces, according to the Alaska Dispatch News.

Based on the state’s figures and average cannabis prices in other rec markets, sales could come in between $15 million and more than $75 million.

Research Shows Cannabis May Help Overactive Bladder

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

The latest research on cannabis shows how cannabigerol, or CBG, may help relieve symptoms of overactive bladder and similar disorders.

Scientists tested bladder contractility in specimens of mouse bladders as well as human bladders, and found CBG reduced contractions. Lowering bladder contractility improves symptoms of those suffering from urinary incontinence. In previous research on cannabis used to treat overactive bladder, a clinical trial on patients with multiple sclerosis and Neurogenic Detrusor Overactivity showed that administration of a high-THC cannabis extract improved urinary incontinence by 25 %.

A 25 % improvement is enough to make anyone’s life noticeably better, but that also came along with the potent psychoactive effect of the high-THC extract. While many cannabis users enjoy the feeling of being high all the time, people who never touched the stuff in their lives may not feel the same way. For this reason doctors have gone to great lengths to investigate other non-psychoactive cannabinoids that are still just as safe and non-toxic as good 'ol THC.
