Gov. Jerry Brown signs law targeting illegal marijuana grows

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 8th 2015 by THCFinder

Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday signed into law a measure allowing steep civil fines against marijuana farms that damage the environment by dumping wastewater and chemicals, removing trees and killing wild animals.
The measure, one of 16 bills signed by the governor Friday, is meant to expand the powers of the state Department of Fish and Wildlife at a time when illegal marijuana operations are expanding significantly.
Sen. Bill Monning (D-Carmel) introduced the measure based on concern that since California voters approved medical marijuana use in 1996, the number of illegal growing operations in state parklands and forests has increased.
Last year, state agents participated in nearly 250 raids on illegal marijuana operations in which 609,480 marijuana plants were eradicated and 15,839 pounds of processed marijuana was seized.
Investigators found more than 135 dams or diversions in rivers and streams that resulted in the theft of about 5 million gallons of water for marijuana grows.


Reformers To JAMA: Don’t Generalize All Cannabinoid Data To Medical Cannabis

We read with interest the recent review of medical use of cannabinoids (1). As the authors attempt to emphasize, they focus on a heterogeneous collection of experiments that employed a range of treatments, including synthetic THC, CBD, and THC-mimicking drugs.

Lay readers might inappropriately generalize these results specifically to whole plant medical cannabis  But few (only two) of these experiments were conducted using medical cannabis; most of the studies reviewed focused on outcome measures that do not address the plant’s potential advantages over a single, compound agent in pill form.

For example, the authors conclude that evidence of individual, synthetic cannabinoids to help nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy was low in quality. Within hours of the publication of the paper, mainstream media coverage applied these conclusions to medical cannabis per se, not just medical cannabinoids (2). In fact, as the authors emphasize, only 6 of the 28 studies assessing nausea and vomiting used THC, and none of these actually employed vaporized or inhaled botanical cannabis. The dependent measures were also not sensitive to the key advantage of medical cannabis for nausea: speed of onset. (Inhaled medicines can work within seconds. Sprayed extracts require at least a half hour while cannabinoids in pill form can take multiple hours.)  The authors were generally careful about these caveats, but the disparate and inaccurate media coverage suggests that flagship journals in all fields now have to be even more diligent when cautioning readers about the inappropriate generalization of results. Despite increasing popularity, medical cannabis remains controversial and, apparently, newsworthy. As reviews of the effects of cannabinoids proliferate, authors, editors, journal staff, and journalists might welcome a reminder that cautions about interpretation need to be spelled out in more effusive, detailed, and thorough ways.

Arizona Youngster First to Use Cannabis Oil at Summer Camp

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, August, 8th 2015 by THCFinder

An 11-year-old epilepsy patient from Mesa, Arizona is reportedly the first youngster to openly use cannabis oil at Camp Candlelight – a special summer getaway for children who suffer from this debilitating seizure disorder. 

According to a report in the Arizona Republic, Mercedes Gonzales, who was first diagnosed with epilepsy at the tender age of three, is attending the summer camp for the first time this year, all with the help of a high-CBD strain of medical marijuana to help calm the frequency of her seizures. 

To ensure Mercedes is well enough to take full advantage of activities such as: “rock climbing, high ropes course, s’mores around the campfire, paintball, and swimming,” the camp has enlisted the help of a volunteer from a nearby dispensary to provide her with the appropriate dosages.
Family members say Mercedes was dreadfully unsuccessful with 23 different epilepsy drugs before making a triumphant recovery with cannabis oil. In addition to not effectively managing the young girl’s 30 seizures per month, the pharmaceuticals were ripping the life right out her, forcing her to live in a constant state of catatonic despair.
