Pot brownies shut down prom in Boston suburb

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 5th 2011 by THCFinder
NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. - Marijuana brownies put a premature end to the junior prom at one Massachusetts high school.
The dance for students of North Andover High School was shut down early Friday night after four students were hospitalized because they ate the pot-laced brownies before attending the prom, according to CBS station WBZ.
As many as eleven students consumed the baked goods at the school before going to the prom itself. The brownies were handed out by another student, reports the North Andover Patch newspaper.
"In the course of the investigation, it was determined that 19 brownies had apparently been distributed by a student earlier in the day before arriving for the evening at the high school," North Andover Superintendent Chris Hottel said.
The prom was held at the Atkinson Country Club in southern New Hampshire.
All four of the students that went to the hospital were sent home. While they're doing fine, the school said they will face disciplinary action, WBZ reported.
North Andover police are investigating, too. 


Officials worry medical cannabis will go recreational

PHOENIX -- As Arizona's medical marijuana program moves toward a launching point, the challenge is to keep it "medical."
Dr. Will Humble, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services, said it would not take much to turn the legal program, approved by voters last November, into a recreational pot program.
"Thirty physicians who had really reckless care and writing certifications very quickly could turn this into a recreational program in probably a year," said Humble.
Despite the best efforts of the state, Humble said, "There will be recreational users that end up getting into the system... The evidence suggests that no state has been able to achieve a truly medical marijuana program."
He said the state will look for doctors writing lots of prescriptions for certain types of patients -- "people in their 20s and 30s in chronic pain, near universities."
Lisa Wynn is executive director of the Arizona Medical Board, which will review complaints about doctors who might have overstepped the law.
"I don't believe any physician needs to worry about getting in trouble if they're recommending marijuana for their patients as long as they're following the guidelines that are set up in the rules," said Wynn.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The rules have been released.  Now, many Arizonans are ready to operate their own medical marijuana businesses.
Monday, Tucsonans interested in starting up a grow operation or dispensary got a chance to see what's involved.
Now that Arizona has become the 15th state to enact a medical marijuana law.  People are wondering how the measure will impact them.
Monday, a few dozen people got their questions answered at a forum in Tucson hosted by the Arizona Medical Marijuana Association.
Just last week the Arizona department of health services released its rules for medical marijuana use and distribution.
Among the requirements, patients must get a recommendation from a doctor licensed in Arizona or one who has been treating them for years.
Also, applicants who want to operate a dispensary must put down $5,000 with a $1,000 annual renewal fee.
"About 92 pages worth of rules, but they look really good, they look like they've done their research as far as making sure everything gets structured right," said Heidi Kay.
Applicants will have to first find a location for their dispensary, then make sure it coincides with zoning rules, then fill out a business plan.
The medical marijuana association hopes the process is just the beginning of a growing acceptance.


Medical Cannabis Patients Worry About Impact Of Repeal in Montana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, April, 5th 2011 by THCFinder
Medical marijuana patients say they don't think fixes to the state's marijuana initiative ever had a chance.
Dennis Gulyas, a medical cannabis patient, says, "I would just like to tell those representatives out there that have decided to go ahead and go against the will of the people, the will of the people will come back to bite you."
Tayln Lang, head of the Missoula chapter of the Montana Medical Growers Association, says, "This is the very first voter-sponsored initiative repealed by the legislature. I feel that sets a very dangerous precedent."
House Bill 161 would end medical marijuana in Montana July 1. Gulyas says, "On that date I'm not going to be a happy person. I'm going to be a very sad person. Not for myself but for all those people that are even worse conditioned than me. Where are they going to go? What are they going to do? Are they going to be a criminal?"
Advocates like Lang say it will have a much broader impact on the state, especially on people who sunk money into starting a cannabis business.

At the scene, Roberts officer Leonard Griggs he had stolen the 2011 GMC box truck owned by Gulf Florida Doughnut Distributing in Tampa from a Walmart parking lot in Haines City.
Roberts told the officers he had gotten tired of walking and that his feet hurt.
