Raleigh NC Passes CBD Oil Bill

Epilepsy is a terrible affliction, especially for those who suffer and are children. The amount of seizures that a child can have a day can seriously stunt the growth of the brain and development, leaving young kids unable to hold up their own heads, eat on their own, walk, or function in any way. With harsh medicine and sometimes even animal tranquilizers, it's shocking that a natural medicine like cannabis would be looked over, simply because of some negative nonsense. The plant could help hundreds of thousands of people to cope with the sadness of dealing with epilepsy.
 
For those who follow my Instagram, you'll know that I'm currently writing from the city of Raleigh, located in North Carolina. So you can only imagine the goofy smile on my face when I stumbled across the article stating that Gov. Pat McCrory signed the bill, allowing epileptic patients to get CBD oil in order to treat the disorder. The North Carolina Senate unanimously voted on House Bill 1220. The bill states that hemp oil extract is now to be considered legal and regulated when a patient has tried three or more treatments and failed to respond. The oil that has been approved is derived from the Charlotte's Web strain, developed for this specific purpose of treating epilepsy in children. The strain is very low in THC but extremely high in CBD, the substance that cannabis contains that has been proven to decrease seizures to the point where the child can function normally and be almost seizure free.
 
The State Representative that suggested the bill, Pat McElraft, introduced the legislation (named "Hope 4 Haley and Friends") says that the bill isn't going to legalize medical marijuana. Instead, this bill is directed at the children who suffer. McElraft stated that, "This is only a medicine for these children so that they can develop motor skills." The Department of Health and Human Services has until October 1st to set up temporary rules regarding the registration cards for the use of the oil, as well as a database of registered caregivers, patients, and neurologists that recommend the treatment.

Dear Washington, Expect Shortages On July 7th

weed-shortage
Colorado has their legal weed model set up and already rolling. Washington kind of fell behind, putting off letting the plant take over legally. They said that they would release the cannabis this summer and thankfully, that day is almost here. However, Washington is beginning to expect problems with the release of the legal weed due to an extremely high demand and a very small supply.
 
Washington passed their legal weed law around the same time that Colorado did, granting residents only the option to purchase weed legally in the minuscule 15-20 shops that have been granted their licenses to sell marijuana recreationally. With such a small number of shops in the state, the demand is going to severely outweigh the supply, creating a problem with revenue for those who were planning on making a lot of money from opening day, much like Colorado. This small amount of shops really lucked out, being drawn out of a lottery of 334 shops requesting to open in the state of Washington on July 7th of this year.
 
The shop Cannabis City, which is located at Fourth Ave South and South Lander Street, is seriously worried about their supply. The shop will only have ten pounds of marijuana available when the doors open and with prices ranging from $15-$20, they're expecting to run out of products by the end of the day. Other stores are worrying the same thing, including the shops in Bellevue and Des Moines. So if you are in Washington state and are planning on purchasing legal weed on July 7th, it's definitely recommended that you arrive early in order to get your hands on some bud before it disappears.

Oregon Marijuana Legalization Campaign Launches First Commercial

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, July, 4th 2014 by THCFinder

The New Approach Oregon campaign to legalize and regulate marijuana is ramping up it’s efforts after turning in over 145,000 signatures to the Secretary of State’s office. If signature verification goes well, Oregon will be joining Alaska and hopefully Washington D.C. during the 2014 Election and giving voters the chance to legalize marijuana at the ballot box. Florida voters will have the chance to legalize medical marijuana, in addition to local marijuana legalization initiatives in Michigan. The New Approach Oregon campaign released its first campaign video.

Retired middle school teacher Margie Harris talks about why she believes it is time for Oregon to legalize, regulate and tax the adult use of marijuana. It will provide more protection for children, allow law enforcement to spend limited resources on real crime and provide funding for our schools, public safety and treatment.
