D.C. government program to subsidize pot for poor patients

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
help-for-poor-cannabis-patientsA proposed first-in-the-nation government program would require medical marijuana dispensaries in the District to put aside 2 percent of their profits in order to subsidize pot purchases for poor patients.
 
Under the regulatory proposal, dispensaries would give at least a 20 percent discount on marijuana to low-income people at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level.
 
Clinics often offer lower prices to poor patients, and states that allow medical marijuana often encourage discounts for low-income patients. But Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, said no state has inserted this type of provision into regulations.
 
“This rule is totally unprecedented in the medical marijuana community,” he said.
 
Medical marijuana sales began in the District at the Capital City Care clinic last month. Prices for marijuana range from $380 to $440 per ounce, according to the clinic’s website.
 
The sliding scale program is intended to improve access for the poor, who potentially comprise a large percentage of medical marijuana consumers. Often, marijuana patients do not hold full-time jobs because of the nature of the illnesses that qualify them to use pot medically, analysts say. Medical marijuana cards issued to patients indicate whether they are low-income and eligible for discounts on the drug.

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, August, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder

 Stoner Ladies listen up. Marijuana and Weight Loss are now being put together in the same sentence! So go ahead ladies, take another hit off that beautiful bong!

A new research study on marijuana reports that regular use of marijuana consumption may in fact be a contributer in weight loss. This conclusion comes from a report published in the American Journal of Medicine. This is great news to all of us Stoner Men and Women out here in the cannabis community.

The study, conducted by researchers from the University of Nebraska, Harvard and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, examined 4,657 adults, 579 of whom regularly smoked reefer.

“We found significant associations between marijuana use and smaller waist circumferences,” the researchers report.

A significant amount of potheads had 16% lower levels of insulin than the non-smokers in the study. Awesome news, you got to love to hear this stoners. Thumbs up!

The hormone Insulin, regulates metabolism of fat and carbs. Maybe that’s why smokers of the miracle plant marijuana are less prone to diabetes. Good thing because I’m sure none of us cannabis users want to develop diabetes.

Well I may not be a doctor folks but all signs point to continuing to smoke the reefer goodness. Stoners pack up those bowls and make sure they’re filled to the top with that good kush. Smoke weed, be happy, and Stay Blazed!

Can Marijuana Improve Your Emotional State?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, August, 22nd 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-and-emotionsIt's no secret that marijuana can put a smile on many people's faces, but research suggests that the drug's positive effects go beyond just getting high. A 2012 study published in the peer-reviewed academic journal European Neuropsychopharmacology suggests that the brain's endocannabinoid system – which is activated by THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana – may play an important role in emotional processing, "an essential aspect of appropriate social interactions and interpersonal relationships."
 
Specifically, the study's authors found that participants given THC in a controlled experiment showed lower brain activity in response negative stimuli than did those given placebo.  A bias toward negative stimuli has been linked to mental illnesses like depression, and evidence that THC reduces this effect suggests that the endocannabinoid system could play an important, beneficial role in how humans experience emotions and mood.
 
Researchers measured test-specific effects of THC administration on about a dozen men who had used marijuana at least four times in the past year, but no more than once a week. Half of them were given THC, the other half placebo; the researchers then showed all the men images of faces with expressions that appeared either "fearful" or "happy." They found that participants given THC showed significantly decreased accuracy in matching facial expressions with negative emotion, but showed about the same accuracy for positive associations. Using brain imaging technology called fMRI, they were also able to watch the effects of THC on the parts of the participants' brains that process emotion – identifying a "network-wide shift from a bias for negative emotional content towards a bias for positive emotional content."
