Congressmen Want to Know Why Jeff Sessions Is Standing in the Way of Marijuana Research

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

Congressional forces, at least the dedicated few with enough cojones to swing violent haymakers in the name of marijuana reform on Capitol Hill, are working to get U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions to justify his personal decision to squash an expansion effort designed to improve the state of cannabis research in the United States.

Earlier this week, federal lawmakers fired off a letter to Alabama’s own pot-hating boner boy, asking him to provide them with some explanation as to why the Justice Department has stalled a program that would allow more growers, other than the University of Mississippi, to produce research marijuana.

The letter was sent in response to a recent article in the Washington Post, which suggested that the DEA is unable to license any additional growers because the Justice Department has simply refused to give the necessary approval. A law enforcement official close to the situation told the news source “they’re sitting on it… they just will not act on these things.”

Now, the congressmen are demanding answers.

Northern California Deputies Kill Illegal Pot Grower

Category: News | Posted on Sun, August, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

DURHAM, Calif. (AP) — Northern California authorities have shot and killed an illegal marijuana grower they say confronted sheriff’s deputies with a gun.

The Butte County Sheriff’s Office says 56-year-old Mark Jensen died Tuesday night in the community of Durham.

Authorities say code enforcement officers approached Jensen at his home on Monday and told him he was violating the county’s marijuana cultivation law. The enraged grower began making threatening calls to police and code-enforcement officers, who got a warrant to arrest him.

Hearing that he had guns, a SWAT team and crisis negotiators went to his home, where at some point Jensen threatened to shoot a motorist then holed up inside.

Many Americans use Cannabis for Chronic Pain Because it is Better than Opioids

Category: Tokers | Posted on Sun, August, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

CANNABIS FOR CHRONIC PAIN

Currently, 1/3 America suffers from chronic pain, defined as pain that lasts longer than 12 weeks. It commonly coincides alongside secondary symptoms and conditions, from trouble sleeping to a weakened immune system to anxiety and depression. The problem with chronic pain and other health conditions, however, is that many people turn to opioid prescriptions, the reality of which is quite dangerous. Medical marijuana, on the other hand, is a viable alternative to opioids, which you will see in the infographic below.

Apollo Cannabis Clinic aims to offer safe and effective treatment for chronic pain and a variety of other conditions such as PTSD and anxiety via medicinal marijuana. The largest study on cannabis to date found that medical cannabis is effective at relieving not only chronic pain, but also a variety of other conditions, from muscle spasms associated with multiple sclerosis to nausea associated with chemotherapy. Not only is it effective, but it is also highly safe, especially in comparison to opioids. In 2015, 15,000 or more deaths in the United States were the result of opioid overdoses alone – marijuana, on the other hand, caused zero deaths. This is because while it is virtually impossible to overdose on marijuana, the same is not true for opioids.
