Cannabis Infused Drinks Causing Seizures?

Dilmer Funes Lovos, a 32 year old man, is facing charges for inducing the consumption of a controlled substance by fraudulent means. This is a pretty rare charge and the circumstances of this situation are pretty odd. Lovos allegedly gave two of his coworkers a small amount of Dixie Elixir, a medical marijuana drink. The two men ingrested the drink, with some extremely unsettling consequences.
 
One of the men who had some of this drink went in to a seizure and was vomiting while the other man experienced similar issues. While being given any drug without knowing can be a terrifying situation, one doesn't usually suspect cannabis when such a severe reaction occurs. The man who experienced the worst of the symptoms had never ingested marijuana before and would have never taken a sip from his drink if he had known it contained cannabis.
 
Cannabis is used to prevent seizures, so it's very strange that this one particular man had one. While it is unfortunate that he suffered such a bad reaction, one has to question if there were other substances involved or at least other factors. It's also common knowledge that eating marijuana has different effects than smoking it, it's still highly suspicious that such a bad reaction occurred, although the possibility of an allergy does exist.
 
Lovos has been ordered to pay for both men's medical bills, which total out to around $3,000. He is also required to do 100 hours of community service. Lovos' attorney said that he didn't mean for anyone to get hurt. And usually, with cannabis, not many people do. Hopefully, everything works out for all of these men and an incident like this never happens again.

Marijuana limits behind the wheel

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
marijuana-dui-issuesBROOKFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - Medical marijuana is now legal in Massachusetts. Which means patients are allowed to drive with some marijuana in their system legally, but how much before they're considered impaired?
 
Massachusetts doesn't have a breathalyzer type device to determine how high someone is behind the wheel. The 22News I-Team went to the State Police barracks in Brookfield to see what steps police are taking to keep our roads safe from drivers under the influence of marijuana. 
 
“If you're asking if there will be limit like there is with blood alcohol, I don't know. It's up to the legislature.  Right now there is no limit on the books, it's whether or not a person is impaired when they are driving,” said State Police Trooper Matthew Simpson.
 
Trooper Simpson is a drug recognition expert. He said, “There's a program, it's an international program where we have 17 troopers trained in and we're planning to train an additional 20 in the next ten months or so in response to medical marijuana.”
 
The State Police are already amping up their efforts in response to the medical marijuana dispensaries. Attorney Richard Evans told the I-Team he expects that marijuana could be completely legalized and taxed in Massachusetts in the new few years.
 
“We often hear that we should slow down in reforming the marijuana laws because there's not a so called breathalyzer test for marijuana, I think that's a bogus argument I think that's just an excuse not to do anything,” said Evans.

Hershey 3-year-old's condition makes a case for medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, November, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
medical-mmj-caseIf Pennsylvania legislators would heed the plight of 3-year-old Hershey resident Garrett Brann, they would agree to take a more rational approach toward the medical use of marijuana.
 
Garrett has Dravet Syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy that starts in infancy. The disease wracks his body with seizures, as if random jolts of electricity are repeatedly shooting through him.
 
With his debilitating condition, Garrett frequently falls and can’t feed himself. His family has tried roughly 10 different types of anti-seizure drugs.
 
One treatment might help, but it is illegal in Pennsylvania.
 
“Charlotte’s Web” is an oil derived from marijuana plants. It comes from a benign strain of marijuana, one that has almost no THC, the chemical that gives users the euphoric “high.” Patients take the oil with food, not by smoking.
 
ther families whose children suffer serious seizures have used the oil extract, with good results. Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, documented how marijuana is helping treat a child with chronic seizures in Colorado, where medical marijuana is legal.
 
Garrett’s mother told WITF’s Radio SmartTalk Monday she didn’t know if the marijuana oil extract will help her son. But the family would like to give it a try and is considering a move to Colorado.
 
Garrett, his family and others facing similar medical challenges deserve to have every possible tool that might help them, right here in Pennsylvania.
