14-day notice shocks medical marijuana dispensaries

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

The CPC in Georgetown has served thousands of patients since 2010. It works with hospitals, specializing in hard-to-find treatments for chronic disease, cancer, seizures and PTSD.

"We were always going to do this stuff anyways," founder Jeremy Kaufman said while pointing to new security cameras.

Kaufman is making a lot of changes to his building, adding new security cameras, constructing new walls, removing doorways, and clearing out his basement filled with cannabis plants. It's all part of applying for a new marijuana retail license, required by legislation that's combining medical and recreational pot under one regulatory system.

Low Patient Numbers Could Doom Illinois’ Medical Marijuana Industry

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, January, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

Illinois medical marijuana hb 1Once upon a time I talked with a person who was looking at investing in Illinois’ medical marijuana industry. At the time of our discussion, Illinois was still in the process of reviewing applications for the limited number of licenses for dispensaries and cultivation facilities. The numbers he said people were putting up were astronomical, but seemed confident that it would all be worth it to the people that won licenses. He kept pointing to Illinois’ large population as the reason why it would be such a big score for the people that won licenses.

I was very quick to point out that Illinois’ medical marijuana program was too restrictive, and that until more conditions were added to the program, there wouldn’t be that many patients. I urged him to push for expanding the program in his state, not only to increase the patient base for industry purposes, but also because it’s the right thing to do. No one should be denied an effective medicine for political reasons. I could tell at the time the person I was talking to didn’t quite grasp what I was saying, which made me sad.

I just read an article on The Daily Herald which talked about how dispensaries are struggling in Illinois, and the reason why sounded familiar. Per The Daily Herald:

Slow Start for NY's Strict Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, January, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) -- When medical marijuana became available this month in New York, Brittany Barger was one of the first patients to navigate the state's rules and make it through a dispensary door.

"When you're as sick as I am, you'll try anything," said Barger, who has ovarian cancer that has spread through her 27-year-old body.

New York's program - one of the strictest out of the 23 states that allow medical marijuana - has had a widely anticipated slow beginning, but there are signs it's gaining momentum.

The state Health Department says more than 165 patients have now qualified, a figure that's more than doubled in a week but is still just a sliver of the potential patient pool. More than 225 doctors have now taken the state-required training, up from about 150 last week.

As of Saturday, all eight dispensaries that opened around the state Jan. 7 have seen patients, sometimes more than anticipated, operators say.
