New York State to Require Strict Dosing Rules for Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, June, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

When New York State releases the five much-coveted licenses to grow and sell medical marijuana next month, a series of strict requirements on dosing will be part of the package, unlike the majority of states with legal medical cannabis.

“We’ve had legal cannabis for over 17 years in California, and we have zero usable clinical data, because it’s got to be pegged to a dose,” Andrei Bogulubov, executive vice president of Long Island-based PalliaTech, told the New York Business Journal at last week’s Cannabis World Congress and Business Exposition in New York City.

PalliaTech seems to be prepared for New York’s strict rules with its patented PT 1000 medical device—a smokeless, single-dose delivery system, capable of metered dosing of plant and cannabinoid oils. The PT 1000, which cost $2 million to develop, is also designed to ensure the dose never combusts, a key factor for patients, Bogulubov explained.

“Doctors do not give you a bag of heart medicine in powdered form and say, ‘See how this works.’ They have to treat to the dose response curve,” Bogulubov said.

Bogulubov believes that dosage requirements could lead to a new era of marijuana big data that could change the way we think about cannabis.

Study: Breaking Up Nugs Can Make You Fail a Drug Test

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

A recently published study from the University of Freiburg in Germany has found that rolling a joint is enough to fail a drug test. Even indirect contact with cannabis can give you a false positive, with big implications for legal cases that revolve around a drug test as evidence.

Researchers chose 10 lucky participants to roll one joint on five consecutive days, and urine tested them to make sure they didn’t smoke before or during the study. By the fifth day, and the fifth joint, most of the participants had detectable levels of THC and THCA in their hair. Even four weeks after their first exposure hair tests still showed both THCA and decarboxylated THC.

Those who have had to submit to drug tests know all too well about THC’s habit of lingering in the body for long periods of time. This study proves you don’t even need to get high to show up positive; the act of breaking up bud exposes your skin to enough THC to show up on a drug test.

California Senate Moves To End Discrimination Against Medical Marijuana Patients Seeking Organ Transplants

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

california medical cannabisThe California Senate approved AB 258, the Medical Cannabis Organ Transplant Act, earlier today by a margin of 31-1.  AB 258 prohibits discrimination against medical cannabis patients in the organ transplant process, unless a doctor has determined that medical cannabis use is clinically significant to the transplant process. Medical cannabis patients in California are routinely removed from the organ transplant waiting list if they test positive for cannabis use – even legal doctor-recommended medical cannabis.  AB 258 was authored by Assemblymember Marc Levine (D-San Rafael) and sponsored by Americans for Safe Access (ASA).

“AB 258 is about fundamental fairness and compassion. Legal medical cannabis patients should never face a choice between their doctor-recommended medicine and a life-saving organ transplant,” said Don Duncan ASA’s California Director. “AB 258 will help the law catch up with science, which has shown that medical cannabis patients are just as likely to benefit from an organ transplant as other patients.”

On June 15th over 200 patients and advocates participated in the ASA California Citizen Lobby Day, which focused on educating lawmakers about AB 258 and other medical cannabis legislation. During the lobby day ASA began a postcard campaign to encourage Governor Jerry Brown to support AB 258.
