Colorado to join other states asking feds to reclassify marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 8th 2011 by THCFinder
Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chaffee and Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire have petitioned the federal government to change the schedule of marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act, a move they claim will remove the conflict between federal and state drug laws, which will in turn allow for the establishment of medical marijuana dispensaries. Colorado will file its own request before the end of the year.
 
Shortly after filing the petition, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin signed on as well. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper apparently has no plans to sign the petition, but Colorado will file its own request to reclassify marijuana.
 
Currently, marijuana is listed as Schedule I by the Drug Enforcement Administration alongside heroin and LSD, which means that the federal government considers marijuana to have no accepted medical use.
 
“This is a good first step, in that it shows that politicians are catching up with the scientific consensus, which is that marijuana has medical value,” said Rob Kampia, executive director of the Marijuana Policy Project. “If it succeeds, federal law will finally acknowledge that fact. Rescheduling marijuana, however, will not change the federal penalties for possessing, cultivating, or distributing medical marijuana,” he said in a prepared statement. “That is the change we really need. These governors should be insisting that the federal government allow them to run their medical marijuana operations the ways they see fit, which should include selling medical marijuana through state-licensed dispensaries.”

California Marijuana Dispensary Trades Pot for Food to Feed the Hungry

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Thu, December, 8th 2011 by THCFinder
Medical marijuana users are accustomed to the munchies sending them on a hunt for food. Now they have a place where giving their food away can score them some pot.
 
For the second year in a row, one California medical marijuana dispensary is doing its part to feed the hungry by offering their patients a trade: one free joint for every six cans of donated food.
 
"We're in a really controversial industry, and we wanted to show that we're here for good," says Nancy Black, sales manager at the Granny Purps dispensary in Soquel, Calif.
 
The dispensary is running its unique food drive for the second year in a row, trading joints -- Black calls them "pre-rolls"-- for donated food.
 
There is no limit to the number of free joints a single customer can receive.
 
"We've given away 50, 60, pre-rolls at a time to one person for the amount of cans they've brought in," Black said.
 
The response has been huge. The dispensary collected more than 12,000 pounds of food last year and gave away about 2,000 joints. This year, they've collected nearly 5,000 pounds since early November.
 
The food-for-pot exchange not only helps feed the hungry, Black says. Patients also benefit by getting the marijuana they need without paying the usual $10 per joint.
 
"It helps feed tons of people and it helps people who sometimes can't get their medication on their own," Black says. "People have to pay out of pocket for all of their medicine."

Dad seeks medical marijuana solution for sick son on 'Weed Wars'

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, December, 7th 2011 by THCFinder
A severe and difficult to treat disorder leaves one desperate dad willing to try an unexpected solution for his 5-year-old son on the next episode of "Weed Wars."
 
Since Jaden was diagnosed with Dravet's Syndrome, which is father describes as "the most extreme, catastrophic form of epilepsy out there," there has been little relief for him. The child's first grand mal seizure hit him when he was just 4 months old, and it lasted a full hour. Traditional medical treatments have only offered minimal help.
 
"Lately, I've been reaching out to a lot of different parent groups," Jaden's dad explained. "I've heard there are other kids with epilepsy that tried medical cannabis, and they're doing much better. That's why I want to try it."
 
So he visited Harborside Health Center, a California-based wellness center that offers, among other things, medical marijuana. There he was directed to a tincture containing a high dose of a cannabinoid believed to relieve convulsions, but completely lacking THC, the psychoactive agent found in marijuana.
 
Jaden received his first dose of the treatment on-camera. His father insisted, "I'm not trying to get my son high. I'm trying to cure my son's seizures."
 
As a "Weed Wars" disclaimer warns, "while selling and using marijuana for medicinal purposes with a valid permit is legal under California law, it is a crime under Federal law and could result in jail time and other penalties."
Find out how the treatment worked out for Jaden when "Weed Wars" airs Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on Discovery.
