Congresswoman Lee Joins National Cannabis Industry Association’s Press Conference

Category: Politics | Posted on Sat, May, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

barbara lee california marijuanaToday, Congresswoman Barbara Lee joined several of her colleagues and members of the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) for a press conference on Capitol Hill demanding respect for state laws and fairness for the industry. She prepared this statement:

“Today, I’m pleased to join my colleagues and the National Cannabis Industry Association in making one simple request to Congress: “treat the industry just like any other business.”

It’s past time for the federal government to end its counterproductive overreach into state-legal cannabis markets.

Last week, I was proud to join Harborside Health Center in celebrating the U.S. Attorney’s decision to end its unnecessary case against this health center. While it was victory for Harborside, there are still centers in my district and around the country that continue to face harassment.

Additionally, outdated laws continue to prevent many state-legal businesses from thriving, including our arcane banking laws. These laws serve only to trap these businesses in the cash-only market, restrict their access to capital and prevent them from engaging in simple business-to-business transactions.

Baltimore Ravens' Eugene Monroe Donates $80K to Medical Marijuana Research

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, May, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

Baltimore Ravens’ Eugene Monroe has donated $80,000 to researchers studying the potential medical benefits of “cannabinoid products” for NFL players, CSN reports. The money backs a “When the Bright Lights Fade” fundraising campaign for University of Pennsylvania and John Hopkins University School of Medicine research into whether cannabinoids like CBD can help treat sports-related injuries including pain, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

“What we are looking at is a first stab at documenting cannabis use among current and former players, including the types of cannabis being used,” said University of Pennsylvania's Marcel Bonn-Miller, co-lead investigator on the studies told the International Business Times. “We are also going to document the impacts of cannabis use on players' recovery from injury. We know NFL players get banged up a bit, from concussions to chronic pain to inflammation. There is mounting evidence that certain cannabinoids, like cannabidiol, might have some beneficial effects for these conditions.”
