Pennsylvania Governor Signs Medical Marijuana Bill Into Law

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, April, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

pennsylvania medical marijuanaIn a ceremony crowded with patients and supporters at the State Capital on Sunday, Gov. Tom Wolf signed a bill into law that will provide seriously ill Pennsylvanians with legal access to medical marijuana. The passage of SB 3 makes Pennsylvania the 24th state to allow medical marijuana. More than half of Americans now live in states with effective medical marijuana laws.

SB 3 would allow patients with a qualifying condition and their doctors’ recommendation to use and safely access medical marijuana. Up to 25 Department of Health-permitted growers and processors would produce medical marijuana, which could be dispensed by up to 50 dispensaries, each of which could have up to three locations. The qualifying conditions include cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, PTSD, seizures, autism, sickle cell anemia, and intractable pain if conventional therapies or opiates are contraindicated or ineffective.

“Finally, Pennsylvania patients who could benefit from medical marijuana will no longer have to suffer needlessly or be treated like criminals,” said Latrisha Bentch of Harrisburg, whose daughter suffers from mesial temporal sclerosis, a condition marked by frequent seizures that could be treated with medical marijuana. She is a founding member of the Campaign for Compassion, a local organization of patients and families advocating for comprehensive medical marijuana legislation.

Orlando considers decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, April, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

ORLANDO — Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer earlier this week discussed a possible new civil citation process for misdemeanor violations that would decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana.

Dyer, along with Orlando Police Chief John Mina and Organize Now, talked about the issue at a news conference at City Hall.

The process, which also will be discussed at a City Council meeting Monday afternoon, would decriminalize possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, allowing officers to issue citations, rather than make arrests.

Zombie Legislation: Are Lansing’s Marijuana Bills Dead Yet?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, April, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

michigan capital marijuanaIn a really bad B-movie, sometimes the dead just keep on popping up to surprise the living- even after being stabbed, shot, burned and re-buried. Similarly, a pair of pro-marijuana bills that were (supposedly) killed by corporate greed have popped back up into relevance again, and were put down one more time on Wednesday, April 13.

The MIRS news service (“Meekhof: Senate A No-Go On Medical Marijuana Regulation For Now,” April 14) reports that Michigan’s Republican Senators caucused nearly all Wednesday morning on the subject of HBs 4209, 4210 and 4827, describing the proceedings with terms like “the outlook was not promising” and “concerns are broad” within the party caucus.

When asked after the caucus by media what the problems were with the bills, Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof (R-West Olive) said simply, “All of it.”

Another apparent death for the legislative package, which once represented the best hope for patient and business protections and are now hated by nearly everyone in Michigan’s cannabis community. But in a bizarre world where the rules are fluid and the ‘killed’ seem to have more lives that a Siamese cat, is any piece of legislation ever really dead?
