Minnesota Approves Medical Cannabis for PTSD

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, December, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

Minnesota’s Department of Health has announced that it’s expanding the state’s list of qualifying medical cannabis conditions to include post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Minnesota now joins New Jersey, Michigan, California, Illinois, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Arizona, Washington, Rhode Island and Oregon as states that allow those with PTSD to legally use medical cannabis. Among those New Jersey is the most recent to add PTSD as a qualifying condition, with Governor Chris Christie signing legislation in September following a petition garnering nearly 20,000 signatures in a few weeks.

The move to allow medical cannabis for PTSD is supported by a large amount of research, including, a government-funded study released in 2014 using human trials found that “the cannabinoid system may serve as a promising target for innovative intervention strategies (e.g. pharmacological enhancement of exposure-based therapy) in PTSD and other fear learning-related disorders.”

Recount Follies in Maine

Category: News | Posted on Wed, December, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

Marijuana legalization may soon have its very own version of the hanging chad—and, if things go poorly during the recount currently underway in Maine, its very own “Gore vs. Bush in Florida, circa 2000” situation to go along with it.

Maine appeared to have been one of the four states where voters approved adult-use marijuana legalization on Election Day. The victory for Question 1, which would legalize up to 2 and a half ounces of cannabis for adults 21 and over and set up a system of regulated and taxed retail sales, was easily the slimmest in the country—4,703 votes, or less than one percent of all votes cast, so slim that opponents could request a recount under state law.

That recount kicked off Monday, as election workers started to sort through the more than 750,000 ballots cast in the state. Counting all those votes could take more than a month and cost more than $500,000, according to the Portland Press-Herald. Already, some issues are arising.

Illinois Bank Throws Out Medical Marijuana Patient with MS

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

An Illinois bank is in the spotlight after tossing out a customer—just because he’s a medical marijuana patient.

According to a report from CBS affiliate KMOV in St, Louis, Darren Steven Miller was refused service at the Bank of Edwardsville in Granite City, Illinois, just across the Mississippi from St. Louis. The reason: He uses medicinal cannabis to treat his stage three multiple sclerosis and terminal lung cancer.

“When I walked in the bank, [the manager] pulled me aside and said because of my cannabis use that I could not have a signature card with their bank,” Miller told the station.

Since Illinois passed the “Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act” in 2013, there have been around 12,000 patients certified to use marijuana for medical purposes. And while federal law does create some murky waters when it comes to the cannabis industry doing business with financial institutions, there are no restrictions that could possibly make it risky for a bank to work with a medical marijuana patient.
