Bob Lobel: Medical marijuana saved me from addiction

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Mon, October, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

Boston sportscasting icon Bob Lobel is one of the hundreds of patients in Massachusetts who say they have found an effective substitute for opioids by using medicinal marijuana.

The 71-year-old longtime television reporter and anchor has dealt with chronic pain for years, the result of numerous surgeries: He’s had two knee replacements, two rotator cuff surgeries, four back surgeries and, in separate accidents, fractured the tops of both femurs.

“That was brutal,” Lobel told the Herald, referencing the femur breaks. The constant pain left him taking a variety of opioids.

“My issue was strictly pain,” he said. “I didn’t want to take any more OxyContin or oxycodone or Percocet, for a variety of reasons. The biggest thing I was worried about was addiction. But they also made me tired and it was hard to function and I couldn’t go on TV all drugged up.”

Lobel said pure curiosity led him to check out a medical marijuana event several months ago at the Castle at Park Plaza in Boston. It was there he met Dr. Uma Dhanabalan of the Uplifting Health and Wellness clinic in Natick. Dhanabalan recommends patients for medicinal marijuana certificates in Massachusetts and has been a strong advocate for using cannabis as a way to treat those who might otherwise find themselves hooked on opioids.

US Attorney General Expresses Support For States’ Rights On Marijuana Policy

Category: Politics | Posted on Mon, October, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

loretta lynch attorney generalUnless you have lived under a rock your whole life, than you are aware that the federal government considers marijuana to be illegal in all forms. You also know that some states have legalized marijuana in medical and recreational form. This of course has led to a lot of issues and tension between the feds and states. The Obama Administration has issued some limited policy changes that has resulted in less intervention in states that have legalized.

Has the Obama Administration gone far enough? Of course not. There is still A LOT that needs to be done. But things could certainly be worse. The Obama Administration seems to at least be open to states legalizing marijuana, provided that a lot of issues are mitigated. A member of Obama’s cabinet, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, echoed that stance this last week when she did an interview for NBC. Per an article that legendary activist Tom Angell posted on Marijuana.Com:

The nation’s top cop thinks states should be allowed to legalize marijuana, but believes the federal government has a role to play in keeping cannabis away from kids and stopping interstate trafficking in the drug.

“I think states have to make those decisions on their own. They listen to their citizens and they take actions,” said Attorney General Loretta Lynch, in an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd on Thursday. “What we have said and what we continue to say is that states have to also have a system designed to, number one, mitigate violence associated with their marijuana industries. And number two, and perhaps most importantly, keep young people, children away from the products.”

Cannabis Coming to Uruguay Pharmacies—At Last

Category: News | Posted on Mon, October, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

Uruguay's government announced last week the granting of licenses to two companies to grow cannabis for commercial distribution. 

Juan Andrés Roballo, head of the National Drug Board, said the two companies chosen out of 22 applicants were Symbiosys and Iccorp, both start-ups financed by Uruguayan and foreign capital.

They will each be allowed to produce two metric tons of cannabis yearly—with the plantations to be guarded by government troops. Uruguayans will be able to purchase 10 grams (about a third of an ounce) weekly. Roballo told reporters that cannabis will go on sale in the country's  pharmacies "in no less than eight months from now."

The move has been a long time coming.

In May 2014, Uruguay's cabinet set a six-month deadline for pharmacy sales. But as November came, regulators backed off setting a firm date because of the country's elections, which returned the leftist Frente Amplio (Broad Front) to power. Conservative challengers who campaigned against the legalization policy were soundly rejected by Uruguay's voters.
