Maryland House rejects effort to strengthen penalty for marijuana use

Category: Politics | Posted on Wed, February, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

The House of Delegates turned back a Republican-led effort Wednesday to stiffen a bill that would make it a criminal offense to smoke marijuana in a vehicle.

Following lively debate, the House voted 79-53 to reject an amendment that would make it a criminal misdemeanor to smoke marijuana on the Ocean City Boardwalk, in a state park or in other public spaces.

The original bill would have dealt with vehicles and public space issues, but the language on public space was stripped out by the House Judiciary Committee.

Virginia Senate Passes Medical Marijuana Program Improvement Bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

virginia medical marijuanaYesterday, the Virginia Senate by a vote of 37 to 2 passed SB 701, a bill that would allow the production and manufacturing of Cannabidiol (CBD) oil and THC-A oil in the state.  For the past several weeks patients, parents, and advocates from across the state worked tirelessly to persuade  members of the Senate to move forward on this issue which until last year seemed out of reach for Virginia’s  conservative legislature.

Last year’s passage of SB 1235 and HB 1445 gave intractable epilepsy patients and their caregivers an affirmative defense for possession of two marijuana oils, THCa and CBD used to treat seizures.  However, the law provides no way for patients to obtain the oils without breaking federal and state laws. To help rectify this situation Senator Marsden from Fairfax introduced SB701 which, if passed, will provide a mechanism for production of these oils for patients with intractable epilepsy in the state.

“Patients and their families undergo incredible daily stress managing uncontrolled seizures. Breaking laws to obtain this treatment, is an additional stressor these families do not need.  Yesterday’s vote is a just another small victory towards ensuring these patients have safe, reliable access to this treatment”, said Beth Collins, ASA director of communications and outreach. “The passage of SB701 would have a dramatic impact on the lives of patients by further expanding the medical cannabis program to allow access within the state of Virginia to low-THC extracts.”

Georgia Sheriffs Are Sabotaging Medical Marijuana Bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

Although there was some momentum in the state legislature this session to pass a marijuana bill that would allow a statewide cultivation and distribution system to be created for patients given permission to use cannabis oil, it seems that many Georgia lawmakers are now nervous about tendering their support for the measure because state law enforcement officials have convinced them that this move will lead to an uprising in drug addiction and crime.

Testifying during a recent committee hearing on behalf of the Georgia Sheriffs Association, Catoosa County Sheriff Gary Sisk said that people would employ the same underhanded tactics they use now to con physicians into feeding them painkillers to get their hands on medical marijuana if the state decides to engage in cultivation. The veteran officer suggested that this law would create a stoned legion of drug addicts that could pose a threat to communities all over the state.
