Medical Marijuana Patients Deliver Petition Calling For DEA Head’s Firing

dea petition marijuana majorityToday a group of medical marijuana patients and their supporters delivered more than 100,000 petition signatures demanding the resignation or firing of the head of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) after he called the medical use of cannabis a “joke.”

The petition — — has more than double the amount of signatures garnered by an earlier petition that helped lead to the ouster of the previous DEA head, who also opposed medical marijuana. The current petition was started just two weeks ago.

“There is no doubt in my mind that my son Jagger is still alive today because of medical cannabis,” said Sebastien Cotte, who participated in the petition delivery. “Cannabis has tremendously decreased the pain and seizures caused by his mitochondrial disease, while improving his quality of life. For our family, that’s no joke.”

Numerous scientific studies show that marijuana is beneficial in alleviating the symptoms of serious conditions like cancer, AIDS, epilepsy and many others.

“My mom uses medical marijuana to deal with the severe pain caused by multiple sclerosis,” said Tom Angell, founder and chairman of Marijuana Majority, the organization that started the petition. “This issue is not a laughing matter for her and millions of other people who have seen the benefits of cannabis for themselves.”

Uruguay Authorities Discover 'Gray Market' for Pot

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP) — Authorities in Uruguay say the country's legal pot-growing clubs may be selling marijuana and cannabis products without approval, creating a kind of "gray market."

The pot-growing clubs are allowed to have 45 members who can collectively cultivate up to 99 plants for personal use, but they cannot sell the marijuana.

Uruguay became the first nation to approve marijuana legalization and regulation in 2013.

The law also allows Uruguayan adults to buy up to 40 grams of marijuana from pharmacies once a month. But there have been delays in implementing the pioneering plan.

National Drug Board chief Milton Roman said Thursday that the so-called "gray market" is not good for the marijuana legalization program and legal pot-growing clubs are being warned that violations of the law won't be tolerated.



Variety is the spice of life.

Consuming Marijuana During Pregnancy Does Not Make A Mother Unfit

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 20th 2015 by THCFinder

Since 1985 cigarette packages sold in the United States have carried four rotating warnings from the surgeon general, including this one: “Smoking by Pregnant Women May Result in Fetal Injury, Premature Birth, and Low Birth Weight.” Since 1989 the labels of alcoholic beverages have included this government-mandated warning: “According to the Surgeon General, women should not drink alcoholic beverages during pregnancy because of the risk of birth defects.” This week the American Medical Association (AMA) proposed a similar label for cannabis products:  “Marijuana use during pregnancy and breastfeeding poses potential harms.”


The proposed warning represents a concession to political reality by the AMA, which opposesmarijuana legalization but seems to recognize that pot prohibition is inexorably crumbling. The AMA’s wording is notably milder than the warnings for tobacco and alcohol—appropriately so, since the evidence that cannabis consumption during pregnancy can harm the fetus is less clear than the evidence that smoking and heavy drinking can. In any case, providing information about marijuana’s hazards is surely preferable to the punitive moralism of the war on drugs.
