State Department Says NIDA Monopoly On Research Marijuana Is Unnecessary

The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement at the State Department has gone on record stating that the United States could issue multiple licenses for the cultivation of cannabis for medical and scientific purposes without violating the United Nations Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs treaty. The statement came in response to a direct request from Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) regarding whether issuing multiple licenses to grow medical marijuana was a violation of the Single Convention. The State Department’s interpretation is at odds with that of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) which has always maintained that the treaty only allows a single license, which is granted to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). This has created what is referred to as the “NIDA monopoly on cannabis,” which has stalled medical cannabis research for years.

Senator Gillibrand reacted to the State Department’s position, “For years, the DEA has cited this international treaty as the reason for limiting medical research. Now that the State Department has confirmed this treaty should not be a barrier to expanding research, the DEA should issue new licenses to supply medical researchers and stop letting antiquated ideology stand in the way of modern medical science.”

CO Passes Law Allowing Medical Marijuana in Schools

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, May, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

In an unanimous vote on Tuesday, the Colorado Senate approved “Jack’s Law,” a measure allowing children to use medical marijuana on school grounds. The law, which Governor John Hickenlooper supports, requires schools to establish policies for medical marijuana access, but does not require school administrators or nurses to administer it. Instead, it allows parents or caregivers to provide non-smokeable marijuana to students. 

“Jack’s Law” is named after Jack Splitt, a 15-year-old suffering from spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and dystonia, who requires around-the-clock support. Splitt’s mother Stacey Linn began fighting for access to medical marijuana in schools after administrators confiscated Jack’s cannabis-infused arm patch last February. A nurse who provides daily support for Jack was carrying marijuana oils that were also taken.

Smoking, high-potency pot outlawed in Ohio's medical marijuana bill: What you need to know

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, May, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Patients using marijuana could not smoke marijuana flowers nor use cannabis with high levels of THC under revisions expected to be made Wednesday to Ohio's proposed medical marijuana law. 

State lawmakers wrestled with the idea someone would "smoke their medicine" and had initially wanted an appointed commission to decide whether Ohio would allow smoking. But revisions planned for House Bill 523 specify marijuana could not be smoked or available in products attractive to children, such as gummy bears. It would allow patients to use a vaporizer, which heats marijuana to the point it releases chemicals but not smoke.
