Two Marijuana Legalization Petitions Approved In Michigan

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 15th 2015 by THCFinder

michigan marijuana legalization milegalizeDueling proposals to legalize recreational marijuana use by adults have given the green light to begin collecting signatures on petitions by the Michigan Board of State Canvassers.

A third proposal has not yet finalized their language but may do so later this year.

Both the Michigan Comprehensive Cannabis Law Reform Committee (MILegalize) and the MCC aim to collect more than 250,000 signatures on petitions from registered voters in order to place their marijuana legalization proposal on the November 2016 ballot. The Board gave “approval as to form” for the two petitions, meaning the structure of the petitions meet state law. This was the final certification required before the groups could print petitions and begin the signature collection drives.

The MCC made a false start in this approval process by withdrawing their petition for consideration during an ongoing Board meeting. Their representative explained to the Board on the 11th that they changed just two words.

“We are the most formidable cannabis reform campaign ever formed in US history and no other group can match our expertise,” MILegalize Chair Jeffrey Hank told reporters after the Board of State Canvassers meeting on June 11.

The Board of Directors of MILegalize is composed of 13 established figures in state cannabis politics and business, including five lawyers, leaders from a half-dozen cannabis organizations and this journalist. The MCC refuses to divulge the identities of their leadership; their spokesman is an admitted paid representative whose company acts on the behalf of business and political interests in Oakland County, just north of Detroit. Oakland is commonly considered the wealthiest county, and the hardest on medical marijuana patients, in the state.

One-quarter of patients with multiple sclerosis report having used cannabis therapeutically and nearly one out of six (16 percent) currently use it to treat symptoms of the disease, according tosurvey data commissioned by the North American Research Committee on MS.

Over 5,600 MS patients participated in the survey, the results of which were presented last week at the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Center 2015 Annual Meeting.

Most subjects who had tried marijuana said it mitigated disease symptoms, such as spasticity or pain. Only five percent of patients surveyed said that cannabis said it did not provide some level of relief.

Those with more advanced symptoms of MS were more likely to report using cannabis therapeutically.

Of those surveyed, 82 percent said that they would consider cannabis therapy if it were a legal option in their state.

Clinical trials have previously reported that cannabis inhalation is superior to placebo in reducing pain and spasticity in patients with treatment-resistant MS. Other studies indicate that long-term use of cannabinoid therapy may potentially modify MS progression.

Previously survey data published in the journal Neurology reported that 14 percent of MS patients used cannabis for symptom management.

America now has a marijuana resort

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 15th 2015 by THCFinder

(NEWSER) – While $420 seems like a more appropriate price, starting at $395 per person per night, marijuana smokers can treat themselves to a cannabis-filled Colorado vacation. Dubbed "CannaCamp," the 170-acre resort in Durango does not hand out pot nor sell it on site but Time reports that its concierge will direct vacationers to area dispensaries; travelers can also bring their own. From there, guests can "experience the outdoors and cannabis in a safe, comfortable, and social environment," per the resort's site. That marijuana-filled environment doesn't include the cabins, though, which are smoke-free for safety reasons (porch smoking is allowed, notes the AP).

But pot permeates the rest of CannaCamp: There's a THC Fusion Cooking class, 4:20 Community Hour ("our version of Happy Hour"), cannabis yoga, cannabis-infused massages, cannabis pairing dinners ... and so on. And then there are the outdoors. AsMashable explains, most state and national parks prohibit toking, which makes CannaCamp's pot-friendly trails unusual. "We're bringing an element of luxury to that adventurous, exploratory vibe of childhood summer camp," is how Joel Schneider, CEO of the group behind the resort, frames it. CannaCamp opens July 1; reservations are being accepted now. (The world we live in now also includes marijuana K-cups.)
