Victorian Parents Overwhelmingly Support CBD For Sick Children

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, September, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder
cbd-cannabis-support2014 could be known as the ‘year of CBD.’ Many state legislatures in America that would likely have never never passed a real medical marijuana program have passed ‘CBD only’ legislation this year. CBD has been proven to be a successful treatment for those suffering from severe forms of epilepsy, including children. A doctor in Australia was treating a dozen children with CBD, which does not cause euphoric effects and is not smoked. The Australian doctor has received a lot of media scrutiny, however, parents in the area are very supportive according to a recent poll. Per the Herald Sun:
 
More than 80 per cent of mums and 67 per cent of dads who did the Herald Sun Primary School Parents’ Survey want the ban overturned.
 
The issue has been hotly debated since the Herald Sun revealed in January the case of Tara O’Connell, 9, who had been given months to live but made a miraculous recovery from severe epilepsy after her mother started giving her liquid cannabis.
 
The Herald Sun also revealed this month “Dr Dope” Andrew Katelaris is supplying cannabis oil and tincture to 12 children around Australia from a secret laboratory, despite the threat of legal action.
 
Critics of the doctor lack compassion. It’s easy for these opponents to hurl accusations and pass judgement because they are not in the doctors, or parents, shoes. I know if my son was sick, and I couldn’t find anything that could help him, I would absolutely consider giving him CBD medicine because as I stated, it doesn’t get individuals ‘high’ and it’s not smoked. It’s less harmful than pharmaceuticals, and in many cases, it’s much more effective. Kudos to this doctor for doing what is right, even when faced with criticism and potential prosecution.

Seattle tosses out marijuana tickets

Category: News | Posted on Tue, September, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder
seattle-tossing-our-marijuana-ticketsSEATTLE – The city has torn up nearly 90 citations given to people accused of publicly smoking marijuana after an investigation revealed a single cop wrote most of them.
 
Seattle officials on Monday dismissed the tickets over concerns Officer Randy Jokela was unfairly and arbitrarily targeting the homeless and African-Americans. On one of the tickets, Jokela wrote a note indicating he had flipped a coin about who to give the ticket to. Jokela was temporarily reassigned and faces an internal affairs investigation.
 
"The police do not write the laws. They enforce the laws," said Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes. "You can't be a legislator out on the street."
 
Seattle has decriminalized simple marijuana possession, and the state of Washington permits both recreational and medical marijuana consumption and possession. Public consumption, however, remains illegal.
 
It's unclear, city officials said, whether Jokela was simply aggressively handing out legitimate tickets or if he was just making up the charges because he objected to the decriminalization and legalization of marijuana in Seattle. Jokela is accused of writing 80% of the marijuana tickets in the first six months of the year.
 
The city formally voided the 86 tickets on Monday morning.
 
Holmes, who backed the campaigns to decriminalize and then legalize marijuana, said Jokela's seemingly arbitrary approach to writing tickets was "abhorrent." He said social justice requires the law be applied evenly, and on Monday announced a new police policy aimed at educating users first before issuing them a ticket.

Denver-area veterans given free marijuana at unusual event

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, September, 22nd 2014 by THCFinder
veterans-give-free-mj-outDENVER - An event targeted at veterans handed out free marijuana to hundreds of people on Saturday, including edibles and medicinal versions of the plant, all in an effort organizers say was designed to help vets in need.
 
The Denver Cannibis Giveaway, gave out pot to the veterans and to the general public, who can now legally possess it in Colorado, as a different approach to treating veterans who have post-traumatic stress disorder, reports CBS Denver.
 
"That's our mission, is to offer veterans a safe alternative to the dangerous prescription drugs that they're prescribed to deal with PTSD, TBI, chronic pain, and all sorts of other ailments," said Roger Martin, Operation Grow4Vets Executive Director.
 
But others objected to the distribution of marijuana publicly to veterans in this fashion.
 
"These people are getting marijuana with varying degrees of potency and THC. That could cause things like paranoia," said Bob Doyle of the Colorado Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM) Coalition. "Obviously things that we wouldn't want somebody with PTSD to be experiencing."
 
Still, the vets who attended the event say marijuana is useful to them as medical treatment because they make more sense than harsher alternatives."I'm allergic to morphine opiates, I can't take them," said Mark Pitt, a Vietnam veteran. "So I don't have much choice other than do that."
