Jury acquits grower who cited medical need for marijuana

jury-acquits-man-of-growing-mj-for-medical-useIt worked.
 
For the first time in Florida history, a Broward jury acquitted a marijuana grower after finding he has a medical need for the illegal drug.
 
Jesse Teplicki hid nothing from the detectives who showed up at his Hollywood home two years ago acting on a tip that he was growing pot on the premises. And he hid nothing from the jury on Thursday when he took the stand at his criminal trial, even admitting that he smoked a marijuana cigarette earlier in the day to treat the nausea and suppressed appetite that had been plaguing him for decades.
 
Teplicki is the first defendant in Florida to argue medical need in a marijuana case. The jury of four women and two men deliberated for less than an hour before returning its verdict.
 
"You saved my life," a tearful Teplicki told three jurors who stayed in the courtroom after they were discharged by Broward Circuit Judge Michael Ian Rothschild.
 
Manufacture of cannabis is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison. Teplicki, 50, had rejected several plea offers, admitting his actions but referring to the plant as "medicine" he needs to function. Teplicki has suffered from anorexia since age 9, according to trial testimony.
 
Medical need has worked as a defense before, but it's never been tried in front of a jury. In two cases dating back more than 20 years, marijuana smokers have defended themselves at trial before a judge. In each case, the judge convicted the defendants only to see appeals courts overturn their decisions and order not-guilty verdicts.
 
Rothschild warned Teplicki that the verdict does not change Florida law. Marijuana remains illegal to grow, possess and sell. But Teplicki was never accused of selling pot. He did not say how he plans to secure marijuana in the future.
 
Prosecutor Kathleen O'Brien argued that Teplicki had failed to demonstrate the "medical need" central to his defense. She faulted Teplicki for not only self-medicating, but for also self-diagnosing, never seeking alternative treatments that do not involve breaking the law. "There was no follow-up by a treating physician," she said.
 
"This is an historic decision in the state of Florida," said defense lawyer Michael C. Minardi. "Hopefully prosecutors heed the decision and are less likely to prosecute this kind of case in the future."
 
The State Attorney's Office can decline to prosecute cases when it appears the defendant has an argument that is likely to prevail at trial.
 
Minardi said he is considering a civil action to prevent the state from prosecuting Teplicki if he starts growing marijuana again. "We need to protect his right," he said. "The criminal issue was decided by a jury."

Developed over three generations and years of stabilizing as well as developing the perfect fertilizer / food for this particular strain, resulted in a phenomenal kush, said to be the strongest indica today.

Girl's story may lead Idaho to approve marijuana oil

Category: News | Posted on Mon, March, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder
girls-story-may-lead-to-mj-approval-of-oilBOISE - Idaho lawmakers are considering legislation decriminalizing cannabis extract oil while not loosening marijuana laws.
 
"Alexis' Law' was sparked by a Boise family who has watched their 10-year-old daughter struggle to survive with a rare but intractable form of epilepsy marked by seizures.
 
Clare Carey says the oil could change Alexis' life. Carey says that the oil has shown to reduce the amount and duration of seizures in children with epilepsy.
 
Carey is prohibited from possessing the oil because of Idaho law.
 
The family has been lobbying lawmakers for almost two years, putting Idaho in a movement to decriminalize the oil. The oil is legal in 12 states that still ban marijuana smoking.

There Is A Shortage Of Medical Marijuana In Washington D.C.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, March, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder
shortage-of-mmj-in-wa-dcWashington D.C. medical marijuana patients have three dispensaries to legally purchase medical marijuana from. That’s three dispensaries for roughly 2,500 patients, which is up from 800 last summer. That imbalance of patient to safe access point has led to a medical marijuana shortage in Washington D.C.. Per the Washington Post:
 
Operators of Washington’s three medical marijuana dispensaries have struggled to meet the rising demand, frequently limiting the amount patients can purchase and occasionally turning them away.
 
On Wednesday, “we opened without any product to sell or without a delivery expected that day,” said Vanessa West, manager of the Metropolitan Wellness Center in Southeast Washington. “It was a total bummer. We closed early.”
 
West has heard from some impatient patients that the shortage has pushed them back to the pot dealers they relied on before the District launched its tightly regulated medical marijuana network in 2013.
 
There are ten licenses currently issued to grow medical marijuana in Washington D.C. to supply the dispensaries. Only three of those growers have brought crops to the dispensaries so far, so there is room for a lot more growth on the supply side. Now that medical marijuana patients can grow recreational plants, I’d imagine that will affect things quite a bit. Although, there are no doubt quite a few patients that don’t want to, or can’t, cultivate marijuana themselves, so safe access points are still vital.
