Parents Desperately Seek Medical Marijuana for Kids

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 29th 2014 by THCFinder
parents-seek-medical-cannabis-for-kidsCalifornia has the oldest and most liberal compassionate care law among the 23 states plus Washington, D.C. that allow the use of medical marijuana. So why are the state's youngest -- and arguably most needy --patients not getting it?
"Charlotte's Web" is a marijuana strain that won't get you high, but parents say it has had a profound effect on the lives of many children who suffer severe seizures.
 
At 8-months-old, Oceanside infant Connor Dalby began seizing 50 to 75 times a day.
 
“There was no joy. There was no smile. There was no laugh,” Connor’s father Randy Dalby said.
 
Near Chula Vista, the Benavides family was struggling with their son Robby. Robby’s multiple "drop attack" type seizures came without warning at a similar daily rate.
 
“He loses all muscle tone and just falls, falls hard to the ground. He’s had stitches on his eye, even bit off his tongue,” Robby’s mother Allison Benavides said.
 
Both families say they tried every mainstream medicine drug treatment and every combination available. Nothing worked.
 
Somehow, Charlotte's Web Oil, made from a marijuana strain of the same name, has changed their lives.
 
“My son is seizure free. He is four months seizure free today,” Benavides said.
 
Dalby recorded Connor sitting up on his own for the first time just a few months ago.
 
“We're watching a miracle. We have almost lost him a couple times,” Dalby said.
 
The Dalbys and Benavides get Charlotte's Web through the California Chapter of the "Realm of Caring."

Majority Support For Medical Marijuana In Australia

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 29th 2014 by THCFinder
mmj-support-in-australia
A new poll is out in Australia which shows that an overwhelming majority of Australians support medical marijuana. Per The Standard:
 
Almost two-thirds of Australians support the legalisation of cannabis for medicinal purposes, according to a new poll which coincides with a renewed push to relax the laws.
 
A ReachTel survey of more than 3400 Australians shows that the majority back medicinal marijuana, with support highest among 51 to 65-year-olds.
 
The survey was released the same week that NSW Premier Mike Baird indicated that he supports medical marijuana. To be fair, Mr. Baird also indicated some concerns about supply and regulation, but those are issues that can be easily worked out if the Premier is indeed open to the idea. Medical marijuana opponents in Australia are clinging to the ‘we need more research’ argument, which is one of my pet peeves. For starters, there’s overwhelming evidence and research already out there. And secondly, if opponents truly want more research, then they need to allow it, instead of acting like they want it, but then do everything they can to prevent it.

RIVERSIDE COUNTY: Ordinance would impose $10 to $1,000 fines for growing marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 29th 2014 by THCFinder
growing-marijuana-fine-in-riversideGrowers of indoor and outdoor marijuana crops in unincorporated parts of Riverside County could be fined $10 to $1,000 under an ordinance before the county Board of Supervisors Tuesday.
 
Those who cultivate 12 or more plants also would face up to six months in jail if the ordinance offered by Supervisor Kevin Jeffries passes as written. Supervisors this week could set a Sept. 9 public hearing on the ordinance, after which they could vote on the proposed law.
Jeffries, who represents a district stretching from Riverside to Lake Elsinore, is sponsoring the ordinance to crack down on for-profit marijuana fields. More than 200 marijuana grows are in the Mead Valley, Good Hope and Meadowbrook areas of Jeffries’ district, according to county officials.
 
Authorities say solicitors offer thousands of dollars a month to property owners and renters if they let their backyards be used for growing marijuana.
 
Permits posted near the crops state the marijuana is being grown for medicinal use. Jeffries said he fears drug cartels are involved, though sheriff’s officials say they have not received specific reports on such activity. The crops increase the risk of crime, create noxious odors and lead to illegal power and water hookups, according to a county staff report on the ordinance.
 
Jeffries has said he doesn’t want to go after legitimate medical marijuana patients with small crops. Medical marijuana is legal in California, although it remains against federal law and many cities and counties – Riverside County among them – have banned dispensaries.
Technically, the county already outlaws marijuana cultivation. Jeffries’ ordinance would spell that out more clearly and impose $10 fines for anyone found guilty of cultivating six or fewer plants.
 
Those who grow more than six but fewer than a dozen plants would be subject to a fine not to exceed $200. Anyone who cultivates 12 or more plants would be guilty of a misdemeanor could be fined up to $1,000, face a jail sentence of up to six months or both.
Lanny Swerdlow, a marijuana legalization advocate from Whitewater, said the ordinance is deeply flawed.
 
“It’s nice that they lowered the fines,” he said. “They claim it’s to stop large-scale grows ... but it stops little teeny (grows) by patients, indoor or outdoor.
