Obama Administration Puts in an Order for 1,430 Pounds of Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 5th 2014 by THCFinder

The Obama Administration needs hundreds and hundreds of pounds of marijuana this year, more than 30 times the amount of pot it originally ordered for 2014.
 
But don’t get any funny ideas. The pot is medicinal, and it’s needed for research purposes.

The Drug Enforcement Administration put out a rule on Monday that adjusts the annual production quota of medical marijuana for the U.S. government. That pot, produced by the University of Mississippi, is used by the National Institutes on Drug Abuse to conduct research on medical marijuana.
 
The NIDA’s research is in demand as states around the country consider legalizing medical marijuana, and as pressure is growing on the federal government to decriminalize it.
 
And that demand means the federal government needs a lot more pot than it thought it needed. The DEA had originally set out a production quota of 21 kilograms of pot for 2014.
 
But the new regulation bumped that quota up to 650 kilograms, or about 1,430 pounds.
 
The price for a kilogram of marijuana varies from state to state, but hovers around $1,000 in many states — using that price, that puts the street value of the government’s order at about $650,000.
 
The DEA rule says the production increase is needed to ensure NIDA has enough product on which to conduct its research.
 
“NIDA recently notified the DEA that it required additional supplies of marijuana to be manufactured in 2014 to provide for current and anticipated research efforts involving marijuana,” the rule stated. “The DEA was unaware of NIDA’s additional need at the time the initial aggregate production quote for marijuana was established in September 2013.
 
“The aggregate production quote for marijuana should be increased in order to provide a continuous and uninterrupted supply of marijuana in support of DEA-registered researchers who are approved by the Federal Government to utilize marijuana in their research protocols.”
 
The rule shows the government can get as much pot as it needs, something most Americans still cannot do given that marijuana is a controlled substance. Many Democrats have proposed legislation that would take medical marijuana off this list, and several Republicans are also on board with this policy change.

Iowa Legislature legalizes medical marijuana oil

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, May, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
mj-oilDES MOINES — Lawmakers legalized a limited form of medical marijuana early Thursday morning giving people who suffer from severe epileptic seizures another option for treatment.
 
The bill allows patients, or their guardians, to possess up to 32 ounces of cannabidiol. Sometimes called CBD, it’s an oil derived from cannabis that has medical applications but doesn’t have a high concentration of THC.
 
Only people who obtain a neurologist’s prescription would be able to obtain the state-issued card which gives them immunity from prosecution if found in possession of the drug.
 
They’ll also have to travel out-of-state to get the drug since it’s illegal to produce it here.
 
“I think it’s important that it’s very narrowly defined,” said Jarad Klein, R-Keota, the House floor manager. The bill passed in the House 77-20.
 
The Senate took up the bill at 4:28 a.m., about an hour after the House vote and passed the bill 38-8.
 
The legislation also requires the University of Iowa to gather research each year on cannabidiol for the General Assembly and Iowa Department of Public Health annually.
 
“What we’re offering today is hope for these families that they can finally get some access to something that can help them,” said Rep. Bob Kressig, D-Cedar Falls.
 
Legalization advocates pushed all year for a bill to loosen restrictions on cannabis, but it wasn’t until the final few weeks of session that real movement began.
 
Credit for pushing the issue is split among a group of mothers of epileptic children who individually lobbied lawmakers on the issue and West Des Moines Mayor Steve Gaer and his wife, Sally. The influential Republican couple, whose daughter, 24-year-old Margaret, suffers from seizures, made inroads with House and Senate GOP members.

What To Consider Before Growing Medical Marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, May, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
what-to-consider-before-growing-cannabisIt seems to be common sense that, once a state recognized marijuana as a medicine, it would then follow up by developing a system to facilitate access to those who need it the most. That, of course, has yet to happen. There are only a few states that officially permits dispensaries to sell the herb. Patients anywhere else have to depend on their own supply, a caretaker’s supply, or the black market to get their medicine.
 
Deciding whether or not you should grow marijuana or have a caregiver do it for you must be thought over carefully. The grower candidate must consider many factors.
 
Is there enough space to grow? Most gardens require a minimum of around 9 square feet (0.8 square meters). This, of course, averages out to a space that’s about 3 feet x 3 feet (0.9 meters x 0.9 meters). If growing outside, a plant can use anywhere between 4 and 25 square feet (0.4 to 2.3 square meters). Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about growing marijuana plants.
 
Do you feel confident in your horticultural abilities? Marijuana isn’t that hard to grow, but it can be tremendously stressful to begin a project pessimistically.
 
Do you use enough medicine to make cultivation worthwhile? If you only uses miniscule amounts of marijuana, it probably won’t make sense to waste all the time and money it requires to grow marijuana. For example, if you only go through a quarter of an ounce per month, then the effort, time, and money probably won’t balance out. Indeed, maintaining a garden could cost as much as $1,000 per year, which is an amount many people aren’t willing to part with.
 
Do you feel uneasy about growing such a controversial plant? In certain states, marijuana cultivation is legal with a doctor’s recommendation. Even in those instances, however, you do run a risk of arrest if their gardens attract adverse attention from neighbors, landlords, cops, or even unfriendly relatives and acquaintances. If you feel wary about having a taboo plant on their property, it might be a good idea to avoid a personal marijuana garden.
 
Potential growers must prepare themselves for the stark reality in which medical marijuana garners far less than benevolence from most law enforcement, even in locales where it’s technically legal. It’s wise to mentally prepare yourself for potential arrest or, at the very least, some legal hassles.
 
Gardener candidates need to also be aware that marijuana has somewhat of a seductive quality. It’s entire lifecycle, from seed (or cutting) to ripeness and senescence, spans only about a quarter of a year. One day is like a year in the marijuana plant’s life. It is also dioecious, meaning that male and female flowers grow on separate plants. Also, unlike most birds and mammals but very much like humans, the female form of the plant is prized for its beauty. It is not particularly rare for gardeners to become obsessed with growing marijuana. From my personal observations of these growers, I have concluded that using marijuana is not addictive, but growing it certainly is.
