Nearly 1,000 rally in Lansing to protest pushback on medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, September, 8th 2011 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana patients are dead serious when they are saying we need our medication. The sterotype of marijuana users and the dispensaries, collectives and cooperatives that allowing marijuana patients to obtain their medication needs to be stopped. These people have serious ailments and have the right to get their medication.

 

Studies have shown time after time that medical marijuana has siginifcant medicinal value and can help people around the world.

 

LANSING -- Nearly 1,000 people gathered on the steps and lawn of the state Capitol on Wednesday to decry attempts to change the law passed by voters in 2008 that allows for the use of medical marijuana.
 
With the distinct aroma of marijuana in the air and signs declaring, "Let My People Grow," and "Fight Criminals, not Sick People," the gathering was one part Hash Bash and one part protest rally.
 
Speaker after speaker decried a Court of Appeals ruling that said medical marijuana dispensaries are illegal and the subsequent raids on dispensaries. They lashed out at the Legislature and Attorney General Bill Schuette for bills that would make the law more restrictive. About 63% of voters approved the law.
 
Six legislators said last month they would introduce bills that would prohibit felons from becoming caregivers, clarify what is a debilitating condition, prohibit dispensaries within 500 feet of a church, school or day care center and require a full physician workup -- including medical histories -- before a doctor can certify someone as a medical marijuana user.
 
"If we can get enough letters sent, maybe we can stop some of those bills," said Corey Thomason, 62, of Three Rivers.

Charges dropped against rapper Wiz Khalifa

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Thu, September, 8th 2011 by THCFinder
Drug charges were dropped against a rapper who performed at East Carolina University because the charges were in error at the time of his arrest, the district attorney said Wednesday.
 
Rapper Cameron Jibril Thomaz, 22, who performs under the stage name Wiz Khalifa, was charged Nov. 8 with trafficking marijuana, maintaining a place for sale of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia after his arrest outside Wright Auditorium.
 
ECU police seized a quantity of marijuana from his tour bus following the performance. Nine others also were booked into the jail on related charges. Marijuana use is a central theme of Thomaz' performances.
 
District Attorney Clark Everett determined that the amount of marijuana seized on the bus did not exceed the 10-pound threshold for a trafficking charge.
 
The actual amount seized was about 58 grams, or slightly more than two ounces.
 
There were 10 people on Thomaz' tour bus, Everett said, and he paid a substantial premium fee to a bail bondsman for covering a $300,000 bond for himself and his people so they could leave immediately.
 
All charges against the rapper and six others with him were dismissed when three of the men admitted the marijuana was theirs and pleaded guilty during an Aug. 11 hearing to misdemeanor possession, Everett

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, September, 8th 2011 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana patients can now access a school in Seattle Washington that allows to be become up to date on growing, cooking and much more.

"Medical cannabis patients are being forced to grow their own medicine and we think they should learn how to do it properly," Semer said.
 
The school is small -- basically a classroom and an office. So far, 70 students have enrolled. They even have student ID cards, a bookstore in the works, a student union building down the street, and an entire curriculum.
 
They offer everything you'd want to know about medical cannabis, from growing and cooking -- there's even a law class.
 
"We don't actually teach Bong Hits 101," Semer said. "We teach people how to work within the confines of the law and to do it safely."

Linn State Technical College Begins Widespread Drug Tests

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 8th 2011 by THCFinder

Talk about crossing the line, a college located in Missouri has decided they have the right to test every single one of their students for a list of drugs.

LINN, Mo. — Textbooks? Check. School sweatshirt? Check. Urine specimen cup? Only if you want to stay in school.
 
A drug-free demand greeted new students Wednesday at Linn State Technical College, a two-year school in central Missouri that has enacted what may be the most far-reaching drug testing policy at a public college or university in the country.
 
Federal and state courts have consistently upheld more limited drug testing of public high schools students, such as those who play sports, as well as NCAA athletes and students at private colleges. But the move by Linn State to enact widespread drug tests of the general student body appears unprecedented – and no small point of pride for administrators at the state's only technical college.
 
"It does appear that our program is unique in its scope and breadth," said Kent Brown, a Jefferson City attorney who represents the 1,200-student school, which is located about 100 miles southwest of St. Louis. "But there aren't very many colleges as unique as ours."
 
School leaders say the tests, which they prefer to call drug screenings, are necessary to ensure student safety at a campus where the coursework includes aircraft maintenance, heavy engine repair, nuclear technology and other dangerous tasks. They surveyed hundreds of local employers, who overwhelmingly supported a requirement those same students will soon encounter in the job market, said Richard Pemberton, associate dean of student affairs.
 
"They're going to be faced with this as they go into the drug-free workplace," he said. "We want them to be prepared."
