Medical marijuana supporters stop ban in Kern County

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 9th 2011 by THCFinder

Supporters were able to come up with enough signatures to block the ban on medical marijuana shops in Kern county. Hopefully this will put an end to the bans on patients being able to legally obtain their medication.

 

Opponents of a Kern County ban on storefront medical marijuana collectives temporarily blocked the law from taking effect Friday morning.
 
Activists with the Kern Citizens For Patient Rights turned in 26,335 signatures to Kathleen Krause, the clerk of the Board of Supervisors, at about 4 p.m. Thursday -- an hour before they were due.
 
They needed to turn in at least 17,350 signatures to stop the ordinance.
 
By 5:15 p.m., elections workers had confirmed the number of signatures turned in and were preparing for the long task of verifying their validity -- work expected to stretch into next week.

Medical Marijuana Patient Groups Sue City

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 9th 2011 by THCFinder
A group of medical marijuana patient groups claim the city missed a legal step before implementing their pot ordinance. KABC's Jo Kwon says now they're suing. 
 
Pot Patients Challenge LA Ordinance on Environmental Grounds
 
A group devoted to the rights of medical marijuana patients announced Wednesday that it has filed a legal challenge to a Los Angeles ordinance regulating pot dispensaries on the grounds that an environmental impact report was not created.
 
"The City Attorney pushed an ordinance through the City Council in January 2010 that was so full of contradictions and legally questionable rules that a judge placed a hold on its implementation, and it has since then had to be frequently amended in an effort to survive 57 lawsuits, which should be decided by the end of this month," said James Shaw, director of the Union of Medical Marijuana Patients in a statement. "No one, however, has recognized that the ordinance cannot be implemented at all until an EIR is prepared, as required by the California
Environmental Quality Act, or CEQA, on the impact of reducing the number of medical cannabis locations from 400 to 100 and then forcing most of the 100 to move."

Seriously ill cancer patient may face jail time for medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 9th 2011 by THCFinder

Does it make any sense at all to come in and bust down the doors of someone dying from cancer who is simply trying to prolong their life? What harm are they causing trying to beat their ailment while following the guidelines of the law as closely as possible? What is it going to take to stop the government from coming in and harassing legal marijuana patients?

Bob Crouse has leukemia. He used to have medical marijuana. Then the police came to his house and took it away. Today, he faces felony charges for cultivating marijuana with the intent to distribute.
 
He has a medical marijuana card as well as a doctor’s recommendation to grow as many as 75 plants. He needs that much, he says, because smoking the occasional joint or eating the occasional brownie has never been known to cure cancer. What many proponents of medical marijuana believe does cure cancer–at least in some cases–is the oil that can be created by boiling a pound or more of bud at a time and reducing that pound to about one ounce of oil. Many in the medical marijuana field swear that ingesting about a gram a day of this oil–commonly known as phoenix tears–can have a profound effect on cancer and some other serious medical conditions.
 
“I was just trying to grow the quantity of medicine I needed to medicate myself. I never had any intent to distribute,” Crouse told the Colorado Independent. “They think I was part of an underground network, but I think I was within my rights. They thought I was a criminal. I tell you it was real intimidating when they showed up with eight or ten agents. I’m a sixty-three-year-old leukemia patient fighting for the right to fight for my life.”
 
Crouse says it wasn’t just his medicine the police took in May, it was also his therapy.
 
“You can lose yourself in a little garden. When I was in there working with my plants I would forget all about what was going on inside my body,” he recalls.
 
“I was beating it,” he says of the cancer. “The effect medical marijuana had on me, on my life, was huge. I felt like I was being healed. I could feel it working in my body.

Oaksterdam's Richard Lee: Marijuana Legalization Is "Dead" in California -- For Now

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, September, 9th 2011 by THCFinder

After spending over $1.5 million out of his own pocket, Richard Lee thinks 2012 has no chance of seeing Marijuana legalized for California. Without any investors backing with support it just won't happen. It costs a great deal of money to get something like Marijuana legalized and without more support he feels the chances are slim to none.

‚ÄčLast year's Proposition 19 was quite a wild ride, but marijuana legalization in California is over.  
 
That's according to Richard Lee, the Oaksterdam University founder and chief sponsor of Prop. 19, which won its place on Californians' November 2010 ballot only after Lee spent his $1.5 million life savings on the requisite signature drive. 
 
Following Prop 19's historic defeat -- the legalization ballot measure lost 54 percent to 46 percent, but won more votes than gubernatorial hopeful Meg Whitman did -- backers, including Lee, promised they'd be back in 2012 with a successor measure. But the fundraising just hasn't been there, Lee said Saturday at the International Cannabis and Hemp Expo in downtown Oakland, held a few blocks away from the Oaksterdam campus. 
 
That means the effort to legalize marijuana in California has stalled out.
 
"It's pretty much dead," Lee told SF Weekly, speaking of the efforts by the "new Prop. 19 committee," the Coalition for Cannabis Policy Reform, to put a successor initiative on the November 2012 ballot. "The funders didn't come through."
