PTSD SUFFERERS WANT RIGHT TO USE MEDICAL MARIJUANA

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, May, 9th 2012 by THCFinder
PHOENIX -- Arizonans who say they suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder are hoping to get the same medical options as those with glaucoma or seizures: the right to use marijuana for medical purposes.
 
Petitions have been filed asking state Health Director Will Humble to add PTSD to the list of medical conditions that voters approved two years ago for medical marijuana. Humble will conduct a hearing later this month and likely issue a ruling in August.
 
PTSD sufferers are not the only ones hoping to add marijuana to the list of conditions that can be treated with marijuana. Other petitions are seeking to make the drug an option to treat migraines, depression and general anxiety disorder.
 
But proponents could have an uphill fight.
 
Humble noted that some of the petitions contain first-person reports of how their conditions were improved with the illegal use of the drug. Others have various news and magazine articles attached.
 
What are in short supply, though, are full-blown double-blind peer-reviewed laboratory studies. And Humble told Capitol Media Services that, without these, he is powerless to expand the legal uses of marijuana.
 
The 2010 voter-approved initiative lists specific conditions that can be treated with marijuana, ranging from glaucoma and AIDS to chronic or debilitating conditions that lead to severe and chronic pain, severe nausea, seizures, or severe and persistent muscle spasms.
 
Would-be users must first get such a diagnosis from a doctor along with a recommendation that the drug would help. That allows the patient to get a state-issued card allow them to obtain up to 2 1/2 ounces of marijuana every two weeks.
 
There also are procedures to license about 125 dispensaries where medical marijuana cardholders can legally obtain the drug.
 
But the measure also entitles anyone to ask the health director to add to that list.
 
Some of the petitions are quite personal.

Colorado Feels the Wrath of the Federal Government

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, May, 8th 2012 by THCFinder

After their great success in states like Montana and California, the federal government is now targeting another large medical marijuana state: Colorado. As in CA, the letters were sent out, the threats made, and this past weekend saw 25 dispensaries in Colorado close. As we also saw in CA, this is just the beginning.

 

Even though Colorado has extensive regulations concerning medical cannabis and cities have their own rules concerning the proximity of dispensaries to schools, the feds have decreed that any dispensary within 1,000 feet of a school has to go.

 

Many rightly wonder what business the federal government has undermining Colorado’s medical marijuana laws. "I can see no legitimate basis in this judicial district to focus the resources of the United States government on the medical marijuana dispensaries that are otherwise compliant with Colorado law or local regulation," Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett recently told U.S. Attorney John Walsh in a letter. "The people of Boulder County do not need Washington, D.C., or the federal government dictating how far dispensaries should be from schools, or other fine points of local land use law.”

 

U.S. Attorney Walsh was likely unmoved by Garnett’s logic as the crackdown continues. So far 47 dispensaries have closed in Colorado during the Obama Administration’s sweep through the state.

 

And while California may be a foregone conclusion when it comes to this fall’s Presidential election, Colorado is certainly not. A large swing state, CO could be a determining factor in who is President in this country for the next 4 years.

 

Who in the President’s campaign thinks it’s a good idea to alienate large swaths of people in a swing state in an election year? Does Obama think he can win without Colorado? Or does he think that those who care about medical marijuana are so small in number that he can still win in Colorado while crippling functioning businesses in the state?
