Florida: No Doctors to Prescribe Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, July, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

After spending two long years trying to figure out how to operate a restrictive medical marijuana program, one that allows only a handful of patients to gain access to low-THC strains of the herb, Florida officials announced last week that they were finally in the businesses of selling weed. However, while the news of this development may sound encouraging, some of the latest reports indicate that seriously ill patients are still struggling to get their hands of the state’s version of cannabis medicine because many doctors have simply refused to write recommendations.

In accordance with the Compassionate Cannabis Medical Act of 2014, patients suffering from cancer, epilepsy and a few other severe conditions can get a doctor to certify them to purchase a non-intoxicating brand of cannabis from any of the state’s licensed dispensaries. But, so far, the trick has been in locating a physician willing to sign off on this new therapy. A report from the Tallahassee Democrat indicates that there are currently only 25 doctors in the entire state of Florida that are authorized to make these recommendations.

Since the first official legalization effort passed in Colorado, cannabis businesses have had a cold welcome from online companies. Google still refuses to allow cannabis-related websites from running on any of their advertising platforms. The same rules apply to Facebook’s ad services, as well. Just to make matters worse, the Facebook-owned sharing site Instagram recently purged several major cannabis brands from their site.

The world’s largest outdoor organic medical cannabis competition The Emerald Cup lost their Instagram, Twitter and Gmail accounts on the same day they planned to announce Damian Marley will perform at their 2016 Cup in December.

Prominent Bay Area cannabis analysis laboratory SC Labs also faced Insta-deletion last week, reports from CCTV state. SC Labs had 10,000 followers — a vital form of currency in the social media age.

Big Weed Enters California’s Emerald Triangle

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Consisting of Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity counties, the area known as the Emerald Triangle holds a reputation for its ongoing history as a hub for cannabis cultivation. Now, nearly 20 years after California’s Medical Marijuana Program roll out, the region’s first licenses for commercial cannabis production have been issued.

Mendocino county approved licenses for two substantial grow operations – Honeydew farms LLC and Blessed Coast LLC – seen by some as the start of a new era for the cannabis industry.

Unsurprisingly voices of concern were raised, in particular those of some cannabis advocacy groups concerned the county is catering largely to big businesses.
