California Court: Concentrated Marijuana Qualifies As Medical Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder
concentrates-mmjTo most people, marijuana is marijuana, regardless if it’s flower, edibles, or concentrates. After all, it all contains marijuana, just in a different form and/or infused into other products such as brownies. However, public policy does not always reflect that fact. In a lot of states concentrates are treated differently than flower, carrying a separate penalty and/or fine than flower. There was a court case in California that was decided this week that determined the obvious – concentrated marijuana is in fact medical marijuana. Per SacBee:
A state appellate court in Sacramento has ruled that “concentrated cannabis” qualifies as marijuana for purposes of medical use.
A unanimous three-justice panel of the 3rd District Court of Appeal disagreed this week with an earlier ruling by El Dorado Superior Court Judge James R. Wagoner and reversed the judge’s decision that a medical marijuana patient violated probation by possessing concentrated cannabis.
While this decision seems very logical and inconsequential at first glance, it’s very significant. Concentrated marijuana is becoming more and more popular everyday in California. More and more people are no doubt being caught with it, and if law enforcement considers it to not to be protected under California’s medical marijuana law, it could result in a bad situation for the patient. Fortunately that’s not the case, as this court case will hopefully be followed by all California law enforcement.

Why Science Is Having Trouble Reclassifying Marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, December, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder
Most people these days are aware of the fact that marijuana is classified as a Schedule 1 substance. This means that the government deems it as dangerous as ecstasy, LSD, and heroin. The DEA says that these Schedule 1 substances have “a high potential for abuse and potentially severe psychological or physical dependance.” But while most people are only a danger to their refrigerators when stoned and can quit at any time, there’s still little evidence as to why the government says weed is so bad. Why hasn’t science disproved them?
The main reason is that since the government says cannabis is a Schedule 1 substance, only limited research can be done on the plant. From long term effects to what THC does to developing brains, science would love to cover what the cannabis plant does. But with the government throwing people in jail for simply possessing the plant, science doesn’t have the legal right to research this potentially life saving plant. 
Even though the research can’t really be done, many scientists believe that the DEA is wrong to classify the plant as such a hard drug. The DEA also continues to uphold the idea that marijuana doesn’t have any medicinal qualities but yet the plant has been shown to help to fight cancer, glaucoma, and other progressive diseases as well as more common afflictions such as anxiety and depression. The unfortunate part of this situation is that this is a never ending circle. Since science can’t research marijuana in depth, they cannot present data to reclassify the plant. The DEA won’t reclassify without rock hard proof. 
Another negative effect of the Schedule 1 is that any state that legalizes cannabis for any reason is technically violating the federal law. Even though the Department of Justice released the Cole memo in 2013, stating that the federal government would leave marijuana states alone to enforce their own policies, dispensaries and grow operations are still raided on a daily basis. Not only that but banks are able to refuse service to marijuana businesses because the federal law says that the money is illegal.


Feds Can No Longer Raid State Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

feds-can-no-longer-raid-mmj-dispensariesFederal agents will no longer be able to raid medical marijuana dispensaries in states where medical marijuana is legal under a provision included in the $1.1 trillion spending law President Obama signed December 16.
Enactment of the law changes a two-decade-long battle between the states and the federal government. Although 32 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana, the Drug Enforcement Administration still classifies it as a Schedule I drug, the same class as heroin, LSD, and ecstasy, which signifies it has no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.
Before this law, the Justice Department could shut down dispensaries that states legally opened, although under the Obama Administration the department had kept its distance. Under the measure, included in the 1603-page law, federal agents would be prohibited from such raids. The government also cannot interfere in implementation of states' medical marijuana laws, under the amendment cosponsored by Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher and Democrat Rep. Sam Farr, both of California.
"This is a victory for so many," Rohrabacher said in a statement, "including scores of our wounded veterans, who have found marijuana to be an important medicine for some of the ailments they suffer, such as PTSD, epilepsy, and [multiple sclerosis]."
The move is also a victory for medical marijuana advocates and dispensary owners and operators.
Pharmacist Joseph Friedman, RPh, in Lincolnshire, Illinois, has applied to open three dispensaries in Illinois. He told Medscape Medical News the move brings "a sigh of relief" and adds a layer of protection for owners and operators of dispensaries.
"Every day these dispensary owners open their doors, they had in the shadow the risk of the feds coming in and shutting them down for any number of reasons," he said. "That's not to say that the ones selling to children or that are close to schools or doing anything under the table don't deserve to get shut down.
"We had only heard up until this point that the federal government wouldn't fund any more raids on dispensaries, so this just makes it official," he said.

Sour Grapes - Hybrid

A hybrid of Grape Ape and the legendary Sour Diesel, this strain is gaining more and more popularity. The buds are medium-sized, light-green and astonishingly coated with sticky trichromes. The aroma from these near-perfect nugs is fragrantly similar to white wine, citrus and fruit, with undertones of sour dank. The buds are somewhat fluffy and noticeably soft.
