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.

State Lawmakers Want Feds To Respect Their Marijuana Laws

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, August, 7th 2015 by THCFinder

State lawmakers agree: The federal government should not interfere with states that set their own marijuana laws.

The National Conference of State Legislatures, a nongovernment organization composed of state lawmakers and their staffs, passed a resolution Thursday urging the federal government to amend the Controlled Substances Act and other federal laws "to explicitly allow states to set their own marijuana and hemp policies without federal interference" and to refrain from undermining state marijuana and hemp laws.

Additionally, the resolution acknowledges that lawmakers in different states will have differing views on how to treat the plant, but the NCSL members agree that "states and localities should be able to set whatever marijuana and hemp policies work best to improve the public safety, health, and economic development of their communities."

The passage of the resolution represents a strong statement from state lawmakers. It was passed on voice vote by a majority of participating lawmakers from 75 percent of the states represented at the conference. Mick Bullock, director of public affairs for the NCSL, told The Huffington Post that 49 member jurisdictions were represented during the vote. Member jurisdictions include all states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories.

Federal Politician Calls On DOJ To Reclassify Marijuana Under The Controlled Substances Act

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 7th 2015 by THCFinder

Earl Blumenauer marijuanaToday, Representative Earl Blumenauer (OR-03) welcomed the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg’s acknowledgement that “heroin is clearly more dangerous than marijuana,” and called on the Department of Justice to reclassify or de-schedule marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act.

In a letter to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Representative Blumenauer wrote:

“We are in the midst of a revolution to reform and modernize marijuana policy in the United States. Four states and the District of Columbia have legalized adult use. Additionally, well over one million patients across the country now use medical marijuana at the recommendation of their physician to treat conditions ranging from seizures, glaucoma, anxiety, chronic pain and nausea. The federal government is woefully behind.

“I fully support and agree with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg’s statement on August 5, 2015, that ‘heroin is clearly more dangerous than marijuana.’ This statement is backed by decades of scientific evidence, and rapidly growing public support recognizing that marijuana has been treated as a highly dangerous substance for far too long.
