Medical Marijuana for Autism Is Denied In Michigan

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, August, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

safer michigan marijuanaThese tired eyes, which were filled with hope four short weeks ago, are now closing in disgust. The state of Michigan has denied allowing doctors to recommend marijuana for the treatment of autism.

On July 31, a panel of mostly doctors voted to add autism to the list of conditions qualifying one to use medical marijuana in Michigan. They weighed the evidence compiled by the petitioner Lisa Smith’s team and evaluated the character of the testimony they heard from parents of sick children and medical professionals.

They read peer-reviewed studies. National tests. Pages and pages of clinical notes from doctors who are currently using marijuana-derived medicines to treat children with autism. The panel, whose sole job is to decide which illnesses to add and which to deny, said add autism.

One administrator without any medical degree has decided they are wrong. Autism Denied.

Sorry, kids.

In a statement that was neither letter nor memorandum, newly appointed Director of the state’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, Mike Zimmer, cited written concerns from medical doctors but ignored their actual vote. He cited specifics of the petition in his denial, like the use of the term “autism.”

Illinois doctor fights charges he misled patient about marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

Supporters of an Illinois doctor who's in trouble for a marijuana recommendation say his case could have a chilling effect on other doctors' participation in the state's medical cannabis pilot program.

Dr. Joseph Starkman, 36, faces possible suspension or revocation of his license or multiple violations of the Medical Practice Act. Starkman finished his testimony Friday, said Stephanie Wolfson, an attorney for Starkman who was at the hearing.

State regulators allege Starkman misled a 79-year-old patient by issuing a bogus medical marijuana certification for a $250 fee. They claim Starkman told the patient he qualified for marijuana after learning the man had a previous diagnosis of glaucoma, but that Starkman didn't perform an eye exam himself.

"The Department will investigate complaints of illegal or unprofessional behavior by physicians, including those involved in the Medical Cannabis Pilot Program, and, if the evidence clearly demonstrates non-compliant actions, intends to discipline violators," said Terry Horstman, a spokesman for the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.
