Medical marijuana bill unlikely to pass in Wisconsin

medical-mj-billNobody wants to be a criminal. That’s the thought that crosses John’s mind each night as he gets ready for bed. Part of his nightly routine involves breaking the law, but he isn’t losing any sleep over it. In fact, it’s exactly the opposite.
 
John (not his real name) uses medical marijuana to manage the chronic, neuropathic pain that he’s lived with for the past nine years. Surgery to correct a herniated disc left scar tissue that put pressure on a root nerve, causing unbearable pain in his leg and foot. During the day he could keep himself distracted enough to cope, but at night he would lie awake in agony — sometimes going as many as five nights without sleep.
 
“It’s like stepping on a nail,” he said.
 
His doctors at Gundersen Health System, unable to treat the source of his pain, tried to treat the symptoms. A long list of powerful opiates did little to dull the ache, and the side effects left him walking in a constant fog.
 
“My mind is what I am,” he said. “When I can’t think clearly, I’m crippled.”
 
He tried acupuncture, an inversion table, homemade pressure braces for his foot. He’s had anti-inflammatory medicine injected into the base of his spine. He’s seen four physical therapists, including one in the Twin Cities whom he took 15 round trips to see, paying for his visits out of pocket. A spinal specialist in Madison finally told him he was among the 1 percent of patients who would never get relief.
 
As a last resort, John turned to marijuana. In his younger years, he “used to smoke a little pot,” but now, in his 70s, he says he has no interest in getting high. Intrigued by the drug’s potential as a pain reliever and out of other options, he ate a pot brownie before bedtime. He slept through the night.
 
“This stuff has worked wonderfully for me when nothing else did,” he said. “I have friends with cancer and chronic pain — I know this could help them too. But if I were to offer them some, would I be a friend, or would I be a felon?”

Medical Marijuana Patients Rally To Stop Mayors Proposed Ban

mj-is-medicineCannabis Advocates Urge City Council to Form Working Group for Sensible Policy
 
On Monday, September 16th, 2013 Ventura City Council will reconvene after their break. Medical marijuana patients, providers and advocates will gather in front of city hall at 5pm for the third time in the hopes of stopping the blanket ban proposed by Mayor Mike Tracy in July. The proposed ordinance will affect patients by making it impossible for any professional medical marijuana dispensaries, delivery services or cooperative cultivation to take place within the city.
 
Members of the Americans for Safe Access Ventura Action Group and concerned community members are asking for sensible regulation and would like to form a working group with government and law enforcement to create compassionate policy while addressing the concerns of both sides of the issue.
 
Although California voters passed the Compassionate Use Act of 1996, the City of Ventura has made no effort to assure patients have safe access to marijuana for use in the treatment of serious and chronic conditions.
 
“There may be some medical quality there in the THC, but it seems to me there’d be a better way of dispensing it than a marijuana cigarette” stated Mayor Mike Tracy to KEYT News on July 8th. ASA member and medical marijuana patient Rachel Sedacca responds to the Mayor’s comments “This is exactly the point. Dispensaries are important because that’s where patients can go to get tinctures, edibles and topical salves. It’s clear that the mayor who’s proposing this ban knows little about the issue of marijuana as medicine. We’d like to work together for safe access in Ventura for patients that need it. Most people are familiar with the cannabinoid THC and its psychotropic qualities, but are less familiar with cannabidiol or CBD, which has been used with amazing results, effectively reducing or stopping devastating, relentless seizures for epileptics, crippling spasticity and pain in patients with Multiple Sclerosis, even showing it can shrink tissues of cancerous tumors. However marijuana high in CBD content is just not available on the street because it doesn’t get people “high.” Staffed by professionals, dispensaries offer safe access to patients, assuring quality, consistency and affordability not available on the black market, where patients will be forced to turn if the ban passes.”
