Medical marijuana restrictions to be enforced again

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, September, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-enforcement-san-diegoSAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego Police Department and the city's Neighborhood Code Compliance Office have been ordered to resume enforcing medical marijuana zoning restrictions, Interim Mayor Todd Gloria said Thursday.
 
In the first of what he promises to be weekly media briefings, Gloria said a draft medical marijuana ordinance will be publicly vetted this fall, and could go before the City Council early next year.
 
Without such a law, medical marijuana dispensaries are illegal within city limits.
 
Former Mayor Bob Filner, who resigned in disgrace at the end of last month, was a strong supporter of medical marijuana and refused to enforce the city's zoning ordinances.
 
While dozens of dispensaries were shut down under previous Mayor Jerry Sanders, many resumed doing business during Filner's nine months in office.
 
"The city of San Diego will not reward bad behavior," Gloria said.
 
He said he issued the order to resume enforcement last week, but was unaware of whether any cases had been referred to the City Attorney's Office.
 
"What I've identified as we've been working through our top-down review of city departments is that the previous administration didn't always follow the rules," Gloria said. "When we know that we don't actually have zoning regulations that allow for medical marijuana dispensaries, obviously the mayor had ceased enforcement, and was not providing the cases that Code Compliance would generate to the City Attorney's Office."
 
The city of San Diego went years without adopting rules that would allow dispensaries to operate legally under the Compassionate Use Act, passed by state voters in 1996.

Cannabis May Treat Brain Damage Caused By Heavy Alcohol Consumption

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-heal-brain-damageA new study published last week by the journal Pharmacology Biochemistry and Behavior has found that cannabis may reduce the brain damage associated with long-term, heavy alcohol consumption.
 
According to researchers, “the current study aimed to advance the preclinical development of transdermal delivery of cannabidiol (CBD) for the treatment of alcohol-induced neurodegeneration.”
 
For the study, rat models were treated with two forms of administered cannabidiol (a compound of cannabis), through a transdermal gel, and an intraperitoneal injection.
 
Researchers found that a gel which consisted of 5% cannabidiol “resulted in a 48.8% reduction in neurodegeneration in the entorhinal cortex”, which “trended to statistical significance.”
 
Researchers studied the results of a gel which contained 2.5% cannabidiol, and an injection, and found “similar magnitudes of neuroprotection following both routes of administration”.
 
Researchers conclude that; “These results demonstrate the feasibility of using CBD transdermal delivery systems for the treatment of alcohol-induced neurodegeneration.”
 
The study was conducted by researchers at the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences for the University of Kentucky, and the University of Maryland.

Colorado marijuana dispensary names pot strain for Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
peyton-manning-weedFans in Denver are a mile high thanks to Peyton Manning, and it has nothing to do with his seven touchdown performance in Week 1.
 
A medicinal marijuana dispensary in Colorado is selling Peyton Manning pot, renaming a common strain of weed after the Broncos quarterback.
 
“That happens all the time. You can grow anything and name it anything you want,” one dispensary employee who didn’t want to be named told the Daily News. “Dispensaries will have the same strain but name it different things.”
 
The Manning strain — Chem 91 SFV OG Kush — is described as offering “The best of both worlds, a Uplifting, Happy, Euphoric, thought provoking
Sativa,” designed to treat MS, anxiety, nausea and headaches. It also has a cartoon drawing of Manning, big head included.
 
A dispensary worker said that particular strain is common, but different dispensaries will name it different things to breed competition.
 
“We don’t like to mess with (celebrity) names too much,” another anonymous dispensary worker said. “Too many problems.”
