Puerto Rico Adopts Regulation for Use of Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, January, 31st 2016 by THCFinder

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Puerto Rico's Health Department has adopted a regulation that will allow for the cultivation, manufacturing and distribution of medical marijuana in the U.S. territory.

Officials say the substance can be used in forms including pills, creams, patches and oral drops. Authorities stress that smoking marijuana and cultivating it for personal use remains illegal.

The Health Department said Thursday that it will implement a seed-to-sale inventory tracking system. It will also award licenses to doctors and to private companies that seek to cultivate and manufacture medicinal marijuana. Officials say samples must be sent to independent labs to ensure they contain the correct amounts of THC and are free of contaminants.

Public Affairs Secretary Jesus Manuel Ortiz says the system should be in place by year's end.

Ex-Bear Jim McMahon: Medical marijuana got me off narcotic pain pills

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, January, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

Former Super Bowl champion and Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon says an unfairly demonized drug helped him recover from the pain of his football career: medical marijuana.

McMahon was in Chicago this week, where he attended Tuesday's Bears reunion marking the 30th anniversary of their Super Bowl victory. He was also featured in an ESPN "30 for 30" screening of a documentary about the team, which includes a focus on his health struggles.

Now 56, McMahon has been plagued by debilitating health problems following his 15-year career and multiple concussions in the National Football League. He has been diagnosed with early onset dementia and has severe headaches, depression, memory loss, and vision and speech problems. He also said he suffered a broken neck.

This is a notice of a conference of significance in the medical cannabis field. The Research Summit will be held on March 22-23 at the Natcher Conference Center on the National Institutes of Health campus in Bethesda, Maryland.

After viewing the advertisement for the event I question the premise, as the cannabinoid system itself has no adverse effects; the phrasing of the event’s summary implies a bias toward finding harm, a charge that Dr. Sanjay Gupta and other have levied against the NIH and NIDA for some time.

The discussions will include a Michigan contingent, as Dr. Christine Rabinak from Wayne State University will participate in the section reserved for Therapeutic Potential: Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Pain, PTSD/Anxiety. 

She was the lead author on a paper published in 2013 regarding marijuana use and PTSD.
