Company gets patent on marijuana patch for pets, but are they safe?

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, August, 2nd 2011 by THCFinder
Advances in veterinary medicine parallel much of what is done where humans are concerned — and it's all pretty amazing.
 
Despite the differences in our physiology and the way that things are handled, pets can benefit from using many of the same principles that are applied to humans.
 
Addressing pain in both companion animals and humans has come a long way, as I have written in the past. The use of massage, new medications, acupuncture and hydrotherapy have gained popularity, and according to some pets owners, provided good results, just as they have with people.
 
With medical marijuana dispensaries gaining popularity across the country, it's probably no surprise that a there would be someone willing to market cannabis to be used for pets.
 
A businessman in Washington state is touting the potential benefits of his company's marijuana patch, called Tetracan, for addressing pets' medical problems, like pain.
 
Jim Alekson, along with partners Chester Soliz and Walter Cristobal — developer of the patch — hope to have it ready for marketing by the end of 2011. The three men formed their company, Medical Marijuana Delivery Systems, in 2010 and currently have a patent on the patch.
 
Is the patch safe? That remains unclear. Much of the information that can be found on marijuana and pets has more to do with poisoning and the like, and there's no word from professional veterinary organizations.

Councillor concern led to dispensary raid

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Tue, August, 2nd 2011 by THCFinder
The police raid that closed the Langley Medical Marijuana Dispensary came after Langley City Councillor Rudy Storteboom complained to Mayor Peter Fassbender.
 
Both men confirmed there was a discussion in which the councillor brought up the dispensary, which is located in a condo unit next to a suite that Storteboom owns and leases to a hairdresser.
 
“He [Storteboom] indicated there was some concern,” Fassbender said.
 
“There was a break-in [at the dispensary] right after it opened,” Storteboom said.
 
The mayor said he told the councillor that if the strata council that represents the owners believed illegal activities were being carried out, they should go to the police.
 
Storteboom told The Times that he relayed the mayor’s message to the strata council.
 
Langley RCMP raided the dispensary on July 19, saying it was in response to “numerous ongoing complaints from the community and area residents.”
 
The mayor also attended the annual general meeting of the building owners on Wednesday (July 27).
 
Fassbender said he was invited by the building manager and strata president (not Storteboom) to explain the city’s position.
 
“Marijuana dispensaries or compassion clubs are not legal operations under any Canadian law,” Fassbender said.
 
He advised the owners they could send a cease-and-desist order to dispensary owner Randy Caine.
 
Caine also attended the meeting.
 
“He [Fassbender] told them they could kick me out,” Caine said.
 
“This is ludicrous. This is a matter that hasn’t been decided by the Crown [the prosecutor’s office which decides whether to lay charges following a police raid].”
 
Caine said he has no plans to resume selling marijuana from the condo.
 
Both Fassbender and Storteboom said Ottawa needs to reform the current medical marijuana system by distributing medical pot through pharmacies like any other doctor-prescribed drug.
 
“I don’t understand why this place [the dispensary] is operating at all,” Storteboom said.

Feds: Arizona's medical marijuana lawsuit has no merit

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, August, 2nd 2011 by THCFinder
Federal attorneys asked a judge on Monday to throw out a lawsuit filed by Gov. Jan Brewer seeking a ruling about the legality of the state’s medical marijuana law.
Deputy U.S. Attorney Scott Risner said there is no legal basis for the lawsuit. Risner told U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton in legal papers filed in her court that, absent some actual threat of prosecution under federal drug laws by his office, the question is purely academic and therefore not a proper subject for litigation.
 
But state Attorney General Tom Horne, who filed the lawsuit in May on the governor’s behalf, said Risner is telling only part of the story.
The fight surrounds the decision by Arizona voters last year to set up a system allowing those with a doctor’s recommendation and a state-issued ID card to purchase marijuana from state-regulated dispensaries.
Since that time, several federal prosecutors, including Dennis Burke, the U.S. Attorney for Arizona, warned that possession and sale of the drug remains illegal under federal law. Brewer then directed Horne to ask a federal court whether Arizona could implement its program anyway.
 
In the interim, the state health department, at Brewer’s direction, decided not to license any dispensaries, though they have continued to certify patients as medical marijuana users.
Risner said the problem with Horne’s lawsuit is that no state employee involved in issuing licenses — those that Brewer said she was most concerned about — is facing prosecution.
But Horne said that’s not exactly true.
 
He pointed out that federal prosecutors, in their letters to state officials in Arizona and elsewhere, essentially said that medical marijuana users have nothing to fear. It’s what those letters did not say, Horne said, which amounts to a threat.
“They gave no assurance to state employees, they gave no assurance to dispensaries,’’ he said.
“And they said they were going to vigorously prosecute anyone who is involved in the distribution of marijuana,’’ Horne continued, a category that could include state workers. “What unbelievable hypocrites!’’

Suspect Arrested For Smoking Pot Outside Police Department

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 2nd 2011 by THCFinder
Ok this is exactly what you don't do... use your brain people common now. Or atleast don't get caught...
 
SOUTH HOUSTON, Texas - Police did not have to go far to arrest a drug possession suspect this week as he was found in their parking lot smoking marijuana on Monday.
 
Charles Powell, 33, has been arrested more than a half-dozen times over the years, but police said his latest bust happened right outside the police station.
 
According to police, Powell was standing by his car when he decided to relax with a marijuana cigarette and a beer -- across the street from the city of South Houston's police department on July 25.
 
A South Houston detective was on his way to lunch when Chief Herbert Gilbert said the detective smelled marijuana.
 
"The detective came out the rear entry," Gilbert said. According to the chief, Powell was in front of a sign clearly marked "police" smoking what appeared to be a cigar, but was actually a cigar filled with marijuana.
 
"He was here with a friend who was visiting someone in our jail," Gilbert said.
 
The detective confronted Powell. "In 21 years, this is a first. I've seen a lot of things, but never encountered someone smoking a marijuana cigarette in a police parking lot," Gilbert said.
 
Powell would not appear on camera, but said by phone that he wasn't smoking marijuana, just a cigarette.
 
He's facing a Class B misdemeanor for possession of marijuana and up to 180 days in jail if he's convicted.

UPDATED, AUG. 1, 1 P.M.: The Long Beach Police Department is offering $10,000 to anyone with information that leads to the arrest of whoever is responsible for the murder of Philip Victory Wiliamson. According to LBPost.com, the award was proposed by LA County Supervisor Don Knabe, and that investigators believe Williamson, who is believed to have been a marijuana deliveryman, might have had up to $500,000 in cash on him when he died.

Anyone with information should call Long Beach PD homicide detectives Scott Lasch or Donald Goodman at 562-570-7244. Anonymity guaranteed.
 
UPDATED, JULY 12, 1 P.M.: The Long Beach Police Department has now released surveillance footage from a local liquor store that they hope may lead them to a person of interest in the murder of Philip Victor Williamson, a former Chico resident police suspect may have been killed because of his role as a long-distance marijuana hauler. 
 
The footage shows a man in a black sweatshirt and black pants making a purchase inside the store. He left in the black 2002 Toyota 4Runner described below. More interestingly, the press release accompanying the new footage finally provides an indication as to why the cops want to find the mystery SUV driver: it turns out that the receipt from this man's purchase at the liquor store was found in Williamson's residence.
