Will Marijuana for Sick Kids Get Government to Rethink Weed?

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

For years, opponents of legalizing medical marijuana have built their case on the most powerful of political maxims: Think about the children. But today it’s the suffering of children that might eventually compel the federal government to relax its stance.


Thousands of kids across the United States are afflicted with Dravet Syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, rare forms of childhood-onset epilepsy that can cause dozens, even hundreds, of severe seizures each day. Conventional drugs have been ineffective.

Last year, however, the FDA approved a clinical trial of Epidiolex, a drug made from cannabidiol (CBD)—one of 85 active chemical compounds, called cannabinoids, in marijuana. The initial findings were promising. After 12 weeks of treatment, 54 percent of patients experienced fewer seizures and 9 percent saw their seizures cease. The trial has already moved to a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. (Read about the new science of marijuana.)

In addition, scientists are stepping up lab research to better understand the mechanisms of CBD, which, unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is not psychoactive. Joseph Sullivan, the director of the University of California Pediatric Epilepsy Center in San Francisco, who was also one of the investigators in the Epidiolex study, says that one of the most significant developments driving this research is that the medical community is no longer lumping cannabinoids together.

Wyoming police officials divided on effects of Colorado's marijuana legalization

Sweetwater County Sheriff Mike Lowell knows people in his community buy marijuana from Colorado.

“When we ask where it came from, without exception, it’s Colorado,” Lowell said. “I assume they’re going across the border, purchasing and coming back.”

But those purchases in Colorado, where marijuana was legalized last year, haven’t translated into an increase in prosecutions for possessing the drug. In fact, marijuana charges in Sweetwater County dropped 18 percent from 2013 to 2014.

Overall, the county has maintained an average of 36 marijuana charges each year for the past three years.

“The change in drug arrests has been nonexistent,” Lowell said.

Law enforcement officials are divided on whether Wyomingites are consuming more marijuana since Colorado decriminalized the drug. Statistics aren’t helpful either.

According to figures released last month by the Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police, nearly 8 percent of arrests in Wyoming last year involved marijuana. But there’s no baseline for comparison because the organization just started collecting data concerning marijuana last year.

Carbon County, Niobrara County and Sweetwater County, in that order, had the highest percentages of marijuana-related arrests last year, according to WASCOP’s data.

“We’ve always got somebody in jail for possession of marijuana, it seems like,” said Carbon County Sheriff Jerry Colson. “Whether it’s always coming from Colorado, I’m not sure. More than it used to be for sure.”

That One Time Alex Trebek Got High For Multiple Days From Hash Brownies…

I am a very big fan of the show Jeopardy!, which of course is hosted by Alex Trebek. My great grandparents got me hooked on the show a long time ago when I was just a little kid. I think we have all seen the show at one time or another, and tried to show how smart we were by seeing if we could get the answers right. My great grandparents were very much products of their generation, and did not support sensible marijuana laws. So I was quite pleased when I saw that Alex Trebek admitted to using marijuana, and from what it sounds like, had quite the experience. Per High Times:

Alex Trebek went on Howard Stern’s radio show for the first time ever this week and ended up discussing his few dalliances with drugs.

The Jeopardy! host explained that he had tried smoking marijuana to help with arthritis in his shoulder, but it didn’t work for him, so he quit. He also admitted to trying cocaine once with his accountant.

But the best story he told involved accidentally eating some hash brownies.

“I went to this party at a home in Malibu and I didn’t know the people who were hosting the party and they had hash brownies,” Trebek said. ”I love chocolate, and I ate four or five hash brownies. The party was on a Friday night… I didn’t leave their home until Monday morning.”

From what it sounds like, Alex did not have the best experience. With that being said, his story highlights two things. Number one, no one should go from zero to hero when it comes to marijuana, especially with edibles. Consume responsibly, and know your limit, as with anything else. The second thing is that Mr. Trebek is yet another example of someone who has consumed marijuana that a lot of people wouldn’t have expected. I’d be very curious to hear what my great grandparents would have to say if they were here. Even if Alex didn’t have the best experience, he was ultimately fine, which is something that I don’t think he could say had he binged on some other legal substances that are generally accepted culturally in America.



Chiilin with my buds.
