Feds to Study Curbing Opioid Epidemic with Medical Pot

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

The underbelly of the capitalist beast that is the United States government is working to get to the bottom of the claims that have surfaced over the past couple of years, suggesting that medical marijuana is effective at reducing opioid consumption in adults suffering from chronic pain.

It was revealed last week that the National Institutes of Health recently awarded a $3.8 million grant to the scientific minds at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Health System to conduct a five-year investigation to determine whether cannabis medicine could be used as an alternative to prescription painkillers.

This is the first time Uncle Sam has ever coughed up a single cent to delve deeper into an increasing body of evidence pointing to cannabis as the trapdoor out of the opioid epidemic.

“There is a lack of information about the impact of medical marijuana on opioid use in those with chronic pain,” Chinazo Cunningham, M.D., M.S., associate chief of general internal medicine at Einstein and Montefiore, said in a statement. “We hope this study will fill in the gaps and provide doctors and patients with some much needed guidance.”

Almost 30 Miles in One Week Touring Portland’s Pot Shops

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, August, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

This week I walked almost 30 miles in one week touring Portland’s pot shops and attending the cannabis events in week 14.  My trek includes Willamette Week’s Best of Portland Party as well as all of the 710 sales (in the Cannabis culture, July 10 is oil day, since 710 spun 180° onto its head reads as OIL).  I will also be continuing my Dispensary Tour north and east of the Willamette River.  Here is how I walked 27.9 miles from Sunday July 9 through Saturday, July 15.

Sunday, 7/9/17, 3.2 miles. As I had discussed in last week’s blog, we are looking at manufactured homes as a one-story option for our living space.  Today we drove south to Palm Harbor Homes in Albany.  After looking around at many of the available options, we took ourselves out for an early supper and returned home.

Can Legal Weed Rescue West Virginia?

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

When a bill was introduced in West Virginia to legalize medical marijuana this past spring, MMJ patients were pleased and so were some Republican politicians who are not normally known for such displays of support.

“I think we all know someone who has benefited from some application of marijuana or certainly could benefit based on the research that’s available today,” said John Shott, West Virginia’s Republican Chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

Another governmental organization that also perked up its collective ears was the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy.

report issued by the center listed the advantages of decriminalized marijuana that could have far reaching benefits for a state that could use some help.
