Dr. Sanjay Gupta Introduces Weed3

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

CNN Chief Medical Correspondent and internationally-know physician Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports that the upcoming network airing of the new Weed 3: The Marijuana Revolution will show Americans that the national mood on medical marijuana is changing. “Even the President is talking about it. It feels like there’s something happening, it feels like there’s real movement and momentum on medical marijuana,” Dr. Gupta told host Steve Greene of The Full Melt Radio Show during the April 16 broadcast.

Gupta's first Weed program was an international sensation and catapulted Dr. Gupta into the thick of the debate regarding the medical and societal value of cannabis. “The first documentary sort of looked at what had happened in the past, the second looked at the current state of affairs at the time, and the third one is sort of looking toward the future. What’s this medicinal marijuana revolution going to feel like, look like? What is happening here?” Gupta explained.

Some of the people featured in past episodes of Weed have become household names in much of the country, including Charlotte Figi, the child whose use of medical marijuana eased the seizure she suffered from Dravet syndrome. Weed 3 will feature a new cast of scientists, Senators and patients.

“Besides hearing from the senators who have now proposed the most audacious legislation, besides hearing from the President, you are also going to meet… the scientists that have been studying it. One of the patients profiled is a veteran and investment banker who suffers from PTSD," Gupta said.

He described a failed treatment program that almost cost him his life. “He nearly died trying to get better,” Gupta said “He turns to cannabis… He is a completely changed man."

He also spoke of a “stay-at-home mom with kids who also suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder -- a churchgoing, homeschooled gal who never thought about marijuana. She’s tried it for the first time in October of 2014, and you’re going to see the impact it’s made on her life.”

Georgia Gov. Deal signs medical marijuana bill into law

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, April, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

ATLANTA – An emotional Gov. Nathan Deal signed legislation Thursday that immediately legalizes the use of medical marijuana in Georgia to treat eight serious medical conditions.

Sponsored by state Rep. Allen Peake, a Republican from Macon, the new law makes it legal for people to possess up to 20 ounces of fluid cannabis oil. The cannabis oil can contain no more than 5% tetrahydrocannabinoil, or THC, the psychoactive agent.

With the stroke of a pen, Georgia became the 36th state, plus Washington, D.C., to legalize marijuana extracts to treat illnesses. Georgia’s law makes cannabis oil legal to treat people with epilepsy and other seizure disorders, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, cancer, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, mitochondrial disease, Parkinson’s disease and sickle cell anemia.

“For the families enduring separation and patients suffering pain, the wait is finally over,” said Deal, his voice cracking. “Now, Georgia children and their families may return home, while continuing to receive much-needed care. Patients such as Haleigh Cox, for whom this bill is named, and others suffering from debilitating conditions can now receive the treatment they need, in the place where they belong - Georgia.”

He hugged Haleigh, 5, who has intractable epilepsy, and her mother, Janea Cox, who have been living in Colorado for months while husband Brian, a Johns Creek firefighter, stayed in Georgia.

While possession of marijuana is illegal under federal law, the U.S. Justice Department has said it will not stand in the way of states that want to legalize marijuana as long as effective controls are in place. Joseph Moses, a special agent in Atlanta for the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, said the DEA will “hold to those guidelines” but added that marijuana remains illegal under federal law.

Kid Speaks Out Against D.A.R.E. At School, Is Detained, Removed From Home

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

dare schools marijuanaI was forced to participate in the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program in the late 80’s/early 90’s when I was in school. I didn’t know why I didn’t like it at the time, but realize now that it just seemed like a propaganda dog and pony show to me. The D.A.R.E. officer would come in and tell stories about fighting people that were high on angel dust, would tell us to stay away from marijuana because it will inevitably lead to us using needles almost overnight, and then would take us out to the parking lot to show off the ‘D.A.R.E. mobile.’

I vividly remember one of my friends speaking out during one of the program meetings, and he was sent to the Principal’s office. He didn’t get in too much trouble, but it was obvious that any question asking, and certainly any criticisms, would not be tolerated. Something like that happened recently in Kansas, where an eleven year old boy spoke out during a D.A.R.E. meeting, stating that what they were saying about marijuana was not accurate. The boy’s mother had successfully used medical marijuana to treat her Crohn’s Disease. Below is what happened next, via the Human Solution:

As Shona’s son listened to the misinformation given by authorities to his class during the drug education presentation, he courageously spoke up and informed them that the information they were relating was incorrect in regards to cannabis.  He was pulled from class and sent to the office for questioning by authorities without his mother present.

When he failed to return home from school, Banda contacted the school only to be told that her son had be detained by authorities.  She went to the station, where she was informed that she was not being detained, but that they were obtaining a search warrant on her home and that she would not be permitted to enter the residence until the search was executed.
