Feds warn Arizona over medical marijuana
Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 20th 2012 by THCFinder
Senators, Governors, Celebriies, Billionaires, well respected medical doctors and over half of the United States of America belives that Marijuana should be accetpable to use for Medical Marijuana Patients. So why does the Federal government continue to push against it? I thought our government was supposed to be run BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE. Well if all the F*cking people want something done about this then why aren't we being listened to? What is it going to take to get the federal government to step up and start doing things that make sense?
It's very clear what is going to happen if they shut down every single collective, dispensary, cooperative or any other mmj service. Street dealers business will just end up booming once again and that is something no government has or will ever be able to stop. Cannbis isn't going to ever dissapear, it's full of medicinal benefits and people's lives are changed by it's amazing effects daily. It's time to stop with the non sense and get with the program.
PHOENIX - The federal government reiterated to Arizona that it will prosecute state workers for implementing the medical-marijuana program.
In a Feb. 16 letter to Gov. Jan Brewer, Acting U.S. Attorney Ann Birmingham Scheel said her office will continue to "vigorously enforce" federal laws against those who operate and facilitate large marijuana production facilities and marijuana production facilities involved in the selling of marijuana for medical use.
Scheel said that state employees who participate in the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act "are not immune from liability" under the federal Controlled Substances Act.
However, Scheel wrote that seriously ill patients and caregivers who use pot as medically recommended treatment "will likely not be the focus of the (U.S. Attorney's Office's) limited prosecutorial resources."
Brewer spokesman Matt Benson told The Arizona Republic the governor will not change course and will allow the state's medical marijuana program to move forward.
"This doesn't change anything for us," Benson said, adding that the letter "leaves most of the governor's questions unanswered" partly because it doesn't address whether state employees face imminent prosecution for participating in the program.
Medical Marijuana Clubs Asked to Get Rid of Hash, Kief, and all concentrates

Marijuana-infused cookies, oils, and tinctures would be banned from San Francisco medical marijuana dispensaries along with concentrated forms of cannabis like hashish and kief under new rules proposed by the Department of Public Health.
In a memo released to several dispensaries under the heading "Medical Cannabis Edibles Advisory," DPH -- the city department which regulates San Francisco's 21 medical cannabis dispensaries -- recommends pot clubs "do not produce or dispense syrups, capsules, or other extracts that either required [sic] concentrating cannabis active ingredients or that requires a chemical production process."
There's no enforcement mechanism and is not a "ban," a DPH spokeswoman told SF Weekly. But it's nonetheless problematic -- for dispensaries which would need to remove many edible products from their shelves as well as hashes and kiefs in order to be playing by the rules. It would also be problematic for medical pot users, many of whom say concentrated cannabis is their preferred or only way to glean marijuana's health benefits.
For the uninitiated, marijuana can take many forms. The "buds" one sees are dried flowers; those flowers can be ground up and the plant material removed via several processes to create a concentrate like hash or kief. The dose is much stronger, and if smoked or vaporized, is arguably healthier because less plant material is combusted (a hit will be 50 percent active ingredients or more as opposed to closer to 10 to15 percent).
Some people can't smoke or vaporize due to lung issues, and instead sprinkle kief in hot cocoa, or eat cookies baked from hash, according to David Goldman, a patient advocate with Americans for Safe Access.
