Peru: Medical Marijuana Bill Signed Into Law

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

Last week, Peru’s President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski signed a bill to legalize the use of cannabis products and derivatives to treat medical conditions such as cancer and epilepsy. PPK, as the president is popularly known, hailed the law as opening a new chapter in his country’s approach to the herb.

“Here we are breaking with a myth,” he said, referring to marijuana’s reputation as a dangerous drug. “Peru is turning several pages, moving toward modernity.”

He especially congratulated the congress members who pushed for the law, naming Alberto De Belaunde, Tania Pariona and Gloria Montenegro, who all attended the signing ceremony. Also in attendance were members of the collective Buscando Esperanza (Seeking Hope), made up of mothers who need medicinal cannabis for their ailing children.

Florida Man Sues Over State Ignoring Marijuana Law

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— A Florida man suffering from epilepsy is suing Gov. Rick Scott and the state of Florida due to the governor and his administration’s slower than molasses completion of Florida’s medical marijuana legislation. Medical marijuana was approved by voters in 2016.

Michael Bowen filed a lawsuit along with co-plaintiff Bill's Nursery, a medical marijuana farmer, on Tuesday. The suit requests the judge to order that licenses be granted by the Department of Health to treatment centers now. As of October 3, at least 10 licenses were supposed to be given but so far just 6 have been granted.

 

Bowen has severe grand mal seizures and other traditional treatments have failed him. He used to take up to 600 mg of barbiturates on a daily basis which left him clumsy and did not allow him to function. He says that with medical marijuana he can live a functional life. A spokeswoman for Florida’s Department of Health, Mara Gambineri, said that they are "diligently" working to implement the new law.
