Pennsylvania Could Become the Next State to Legalize a Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, March, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

Pennsylvania may be well be on its way to becoming the next state to legalize a comprehensive medical marijuana program.

On Wednesday, following a nerve-racking few days debating additional amendments, the House of Representatives voted 149 to 43 in favor of Senate Bill 3, a measure aimed at legalizing a medicinal cannabis program for patients suffering from around 17 qualified conditions — a major move forward from the nature of the original proposal. 

The bill must now go before the Senate once again in hopes that the body will agree with the House and put its seal of approval on the changes made to the original language. Although the Senate voted 40 to 7 in favor of the measure in May of last year, there are some concerns that the recent amendments could be a deterrent to a majority vote. Nevertheless, reports indicate that the earliest the Senate would possibly deliberate the issue would be next Monday.

New technique could more accurately measure cannabinoid dosage in marijuana munchies

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

As more states decriminalize recreational use of marijuana and expand its medical applications, concern is growing about inconsistent and inaccurate dosage information listed on many products, including brownies and other edibles. But now scientists report that they have developed a technique that can more precisely measure cannabis compounds in gummy bears, chocolates and other foods made with marijuana. They say this new method could help ensure product safety in the rapidly expanding cannabis retail market.

The researchers present their work today at the 251st National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS).

Ohio Medical Marijuana Initiative Resubmitted To AG’s Office

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, March, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

ohioans for medical marijuanaBackers of a proposed 2016 ballot measure to establish a comprehensive medical marijuana program in Ohio resubmitted their initiative petition to the Ohio Attorney General on Tuesday with more than 2,800 signatures.

The office has 10 days to examine the official summary of the initiative and confirm the petition contains at least 1,000 valid signatures of Ohio voters. The petition will then be sent to the Ohio Ballot Board, which will have 10 days to review the measure and confirm it complies with Ohio initiative laws. Initiative backers will then need to collect an additional 305,591 valid signatures of Ohio voters by early July in order to qualify for the November ballot.

Attorney General Mike DeWine notified Ohioans for Medical Marijuana on Friday that he had rejected the group’s initial submission because he found three deficiencies in the official summary of the initiative.

In addition to addressing the attorney general’s comments in the summary, initiative backers amended the initiative to include additional debilitating medical conditions that would be covered by the program. Specifically, the new version includes autism with aggressive or self-injurious behaviors, sickle cell anemia, severe fibromyalgia, spinal cord disease, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury or post-concussion syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy, and Huntington’s disease. It would also make Ohio the first state to allow medical marijuana as a treatment for chronic traumatic encephalopathy, also known as CTE, a degenerative brain disease found in professional football players and others who have experienced repetitive brain trauma.
