Doctors Testify In Federal Court That Marijuana Needs To Be Rescheduled

Category: Nugs | Posted on Wed, October, 29th 2014 by THCFinder
doctors-testify-mj-needs-to-be-rescheduledThe fact that marijuana is a Schedule 1 drug is slap in the face to science, compassion, and logic. For something to be Schedule 1, it has to have no medical value. Marijuana clearly has medical value. This is proven by the fact that the federal government grows and supplies medical marijuana to four federal medical marijuana patients, and has for decades. The federal government also has medical marijuana patents. It may be the most hypocritical policy in government to say that marijuana should remain Schedule 1, and that’s saying a lot because the government is full of hypocrisy.
 
Doctors were in federal court yesterday making those arguments. Per Smell the Truth:
 
Doctors Carl Hart, Associate Professor of Psychology at Columbia University, retired physician Phillip Denny, and Greg Carter, Medical Director of St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute in Spokane, Washington will testify Monday that marijuana — real name, “cannabis” — is not the demon drug the federal government makes it out to be. Accepted science does not justify the listing of cannabis as a dangerous “Schedule I” substance, many say.
 
“[I]t is my considered opinion that including marijuana in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act is counter to all the scientific evidence in a society that uses and values empirical evidence,” Dr. Hart declared. “After two decades of intense scientific inquiry in this area, it has become apparent the current scheduling of cannabis has no footing in the realities of science and neurobiology.”
 
This is an unprecedented hearing, writes cannabis law reform advocate Paul Armentano, deputy director of NORML.
 
“This is the first time in recent memory that a federal judge has granted an evidentiary hearing on a motion challenging the statute which classifies cannabis to be one of the most dangerous illicit substances in the nation.”
 
The testimonies will keep going. I’m hopeful that the judge will see the truth, but I won’t hold my breath that there will be any action on this area of public policy. If the Obama administration truly wanted to re-schedule marijuana, the administration would have already. Obama knows this and Eric Holder knows this, despite Eric Holder’s recent comments that he would be ‘open to the idea.’

Colorado Gov. Says Legalization Was "Reckless"

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, October, 29th 2014 by THCFinder
co-gov-says-mj-was-recklessThe whole entire point of democracy is that the people get to vote on ideas that some have proposed… Right? Politicians are supposed to be the voice of the people, not the voice of their own opinions. And while these days, all politicians just seem to be doing whatever they feel like doing, leaving us normal people in the dust, wondering how did these people get in to office?! We unfortunately elected them. The people who keep cannabis illegal? A lot of them are paid handsomely to back laws keeping the plant thriving on the black market. The worst is when a good law passes, say one that benefits the society as a whole, and politicians have to try to dampen the positivity. 
 
 
The Governor of Colorado is one of those Debbie Downer politicians that seems to be trying to back peddle on the cannabis legalization initiative that Colorado passed. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat that is seeking re-election for a second term, was asked in a debate what he would tell other states that are considering cannabis legalization. His response was, “I would view it as reckless before we see what the consequences are. I think for us to do that without having all the data, there is not enough data, and to a certain extent you could say it was reckless. I’m not saying it was reckless because I’ll get quoted everywhere but if it were up to me, I wouldn’t have done it, right? I opposed it from the very beginning. In matter of fact, all right what the hell, I’ll say it was reckless.”
 
 
Colorado’s latest estimate on tax revenue (released last month) suggests that the state will receive $50 million a year just in taxes on the cannabis sales. With that money, the roads would be perfect, kids would get free school lunches, buildings could be renovated, and the entire state would be better off. But still, Hickenlooper thinks that other states should wait. He stands by his idea that the legalization was reckless, even though the state hasn’t seen any negative feedback from the legalization of the plant. Tobacco use has fallen, there haven’t been any more traffic accidents, and the state has had a huge influx of tourism as it becomes the United States’ own version of Amsterdam.
 
 
Politicians need to watch what they say about the cannabis industry, especially if they’re attempting to run for office again. With the majority of Americans backing the legalization movement, saying that the decision of the voters was “reckless” isn’t the best way (IMO) to get re-elected. Colorado has a huge opportunity to be a leader in the marijuana movement, both with the model of business and the way that the cannabis indulgers act!

Animal Cookies - Hybrid

This extremely powerful and loved strain is a hybrid cross between the incredibly beloved Girl Scout Cookie strain and the Fire OG strain. The strain is a fast flowering plant, making it extremely popular among growers. It flower in about 9-10 weeks and grows as a dense plant. The strain is incredibly strong, not for the weak lunged smoker, and is highly recommended for patients that are suffering with pain or insomnia. Needless to say, Animal Cookies is a heavy indica strain that you're sure to love. The aroma of the flowers is sweet, with a tart sour bite. It smells earthy and strong, a strain that you don't want to be carrying if you're not going to be keeping it in a sealed container. The buds are a gorgeous hue of green, covered in frost, tipped in a dark purple that resembles the ripest of grapes. Trust me, you'll be in love with this strain just from smell along but once you smoke the smooth, gorgeous flowers, you'll be keeping Animal Cookies in your bong for a long time. For patients looking for a good medicine, Animal Cookies assists patients dealing with ADD and ADHD, as well as severe anxiety, asthma, gastrointestinal disorder, and the dreaded cancer. With so many positive benefits of the strain, it's a wonder that more people aren't talking about it. In addition the the illnesses listed above, this bud will also make the user feel euphoric and happy. This characteristic is especially important for people dealing with anxiety and depression. Many patients (as well as recreational smokers) should definitely be smoking on these buds.

Mom Jailed For Giving Son Cannabis Oil

Category: News | Posted on Tue, October, 28th 2014 by THCFinder
mom-jailed-for-giving-son-cannabisWhen a doctor suggests something to a parent with a sick child, the parent is probably going to take the doctors advice. As did Angela Brown of Madison, Minnesota, when she ran out of options for her son Trey Brown (age 15), who had been struck in the head by a line drive while playing baseball. The doctor that Brown was seeing suggested that the family turn to cannabis oil as a last resort, as Trey had started to harm himself and began to think about committing suicide. The Brown family took the doctor’s advice and the oil seemed to give the teen a break from the terrible effects of the accident.
 
 
“Trey would describe it as reducing the pressure in his head. He didn’t have the pressure anymore and his muscles would calm down,” Angela said. “Everything was great until I opened my mouth to the wrong person and I got turned in. And family services questioned my son at school, the cops came to my workplace.”
 
 
After examining the family and their situation, the county family services dropped the case against Brown but the Lac Qui Parle County attorney was gunning for criminal charges against the mother who was just trying to help her suffering son. Angela now faces two gross misdemeanors which includes child endangerment. Hard to believe since all she was trying to do was make her son’s life easier after experiencing the blow to the head that really effected the way that he was living.
 
 
Angela Brown has gained a great deal of support from the social media crowd. People have been urging the prosecutors to drop the case in forums as well as long petitions for the concerned mother. “He is worth every bit of struggle and any bit of time we have to spend in a courtroom,” David Brown, Trey’s father, told reporters in August when the charges were filed.
