United Patients Group Conference Panel To Discuss Opiate Dependency, Brain Injuries, And How Cannabis Can Help

When someone gets hurt, chances are they are prescribed some type of painkiller or are directed to get an over the counter pain reliever to treat their injury/injuries. That was the case each time that I got hurt and had to see my doctor, usually for something that required x-rays. Every time they would try to push pills on me, and would scratch their heads when I said that I didn’t need any. ‘I’ll get it figured out,’ I would always tell my doctor, and he would always question what that meant. I would always smile and leave.


Cannabis is medicine. That’s a scientific fact. For many decades the medical properties of cannabis were kept secret, and the study of the plant’s ability to help mankind was prevented. Fortunately times are changing, and more and more is becoming known about the cannabis plant all the time. Using cannabis to treat injuries is effective, and doesn’t come with the laundry list of potential side effects that often accompany a pharmaceutical painkiller.

The United Patients Group is putting on a conference dedicated to science this weekend at Dominican University in San Rafael, California. Tomorrow is day two of the conference, and there will be a panel that includes former NFL player Brandon Haw from the Gridiron Cannabis Coalition, former NBA All Star Cliff Robinson from Uncle Spliffy Sports Cannabis, and Brian Keyner who is a former law enforcement officer that is also a brain injury patient. The panel will be discussing the topic of opiate dependency, brain injuries, and how cannabis can help.

DENVER — Marijuana users, researchers and investors are eager to hear whether federal officials will remove pot from the same drug classification as heroin, LSD and bath salts.

Federal drug officials say they are considering removing marijuana from what’s known as Schedule 1 classification, with a decision expected this summer.

The current classification makes it illegal to prescribe and declares that marijuana “has no currently accepted medical treatment use," although 24 states permit some form of medical marijuana use.

New Hampshire: Senate Punts Marijuana Decriminalization Bill To Hostile Conference Committee

Category: News | Posted on Sat, May, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

new hampshire medical marijuanaI received the following disappointing message out of New Hampshire late this week. No one should ever be arrested for cannabis:

Today, the New Hampshire Senate had a golden opportunity to reduce marijuana possession penalties, but they failed to seize it. Rather than passing SB 498, which had been amended by the House to decriminalize possession of one-quarter ounce or less of marijuana for first offenses, the Senate voted to send the bill to a conference committee. This committee will be comprised of three senators and four representatives, who will meet to discuss a possible compromise between the two chambers.

Sadly, the three senators Senate President Chuck Morse named to the committee have all opposed reducing marijuana possession penalties to a violation: Sen. Jeanie Forrester (R-Meredith), Sen. Sharon Carson (R-Londonderry), and Sen. Andrew Hosmer (D-Laconia). Since a conference committee must unanimously agree on a final bill or else it simply dies, there is little reason for optimism. However, it is still very important for senators to hear from supporters.

Please take a few minutes to find out how your senator voted on the previous decriminalization bill — then call your senator to say thanks or to express your displeasure.
