Fla. faces campaign for medical marijuana

Oxycodone didn't work. Neither did hydrocodone nor any of the other narcotics sold to stop pain.
 
So an area woman did what many others do. She smoked marijuana to ease the pain she felt deep in her bones caused by treatment for breast cancer.
 
"I have a high tolerance for pain ... and I hated taking pills," the woman said. "But when I laid down to go to bed and my body started hurting and I couldn't sleep ... taking four or five tokes took the edge off so I could get to sleep."
 
A lot of people in the U.S. share the view that marijuana is medicine. Eighteen states plus the District of Columbia allow varying use of marijuana for medical use.
 
Washington state approved medical marijuana in 1998 and Colorado in 2000. Last year Colorado and Washington state went further — voters approved referendums to legalize marijuana for recreational use as well.
 
Florida allows neither recreational use of pot nor medicinal use. Several attempts have been made to get the Legislature to approve medical marijuana, but the bills never advanced far.
 
Now, however, a major push to take the question to voters is starting. Orlando attorney John Morgan of Orlando-based Morgan and Morgan law firm — known for its "For the People" advertising — is pledging $3 million to get a statewide referendum on the 2014 general election ballot.
 
The backers need the signatures of 788,000 Floridians by early next year to get it on the ballot.

Food Containing Marijuana THC Deemed Illegal by Michigan Court

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-edibles-illegal-miDespite being one of the earliest states to approve the use of medical marijuana, Michigan has been maintaining a strict direction towards the legal use of cannabis.
 
browniesA ruling was brought down by the state Court of Appeals July 12, in light of a 2011 case involving the arrest of Earl Cantrell Chambers over illegal possession of baked goods and other products laced with marijuana’s active ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While Michigan allows the use of medical marijuana, Chambers’ possession does not fall within the bounds of the law, according to a news release.
 
According to the state’s medical marijuana law, “usable marijuana” includes the marijuana plant’s flowers and leaves. Extracts or any form of THC is not included in the law provisions.
 
Chambers figured in a traffic stop last January 2011, when he was found to carry in his vehicle a lot of marijuana-based products, some of which included brownies with labels that specify the amount of medical cannabis in each pack. Despite presenting his medical marijuana card, Chambers was apprehended and slapped with a 33-day jail sentence and a probation for three years.
 
According to the Court of Appeals, the case is now turned over to a trial court so as to ascertain if Chambers can claim the medical marijuana law provision that allows him to bring any amount that ensures the availability of pot “for the purpose of treating or alleviating the patient’s serious or debilitating medical condition or symptoms.”

Legalize it!

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, July, 14th 2013 by THCFinder

Legalize-it

In the famous words of Peter Tosh, “legalize it, don’t criticize it, legalize it and I will advertise it.”

The marijuana industry is one that is becoming undeniably profitable and marketable. As activists and anti-prohibition legislatures have been doing their best to decriminalize our beloved cannabis plant, the war on drugs might be finally making some positive changes within the next decade, or so we hope. The many medical and industrial applications are enough to change the world. In 2006, a statement was released that marijuana is the number one cash crop above soybeans, hay and corn. The United States annual domestic cannabis revenue is $36,803,591,000.00. In addition to the amount of money cannabis rakes in every year, it is a plant that can be completely utilized, stalk, leaf, flower, and seed. The stalk is where the fibrous material of hemp is extracted and can be used for apparel, rope, canvas, paper, insulation, mulch and many other products. The leaves and flowers are where the majority of the THC is held and are generally used for consumption, recreationally and medicinally, through smoking, vaporizing, oils, and butter, just to name a few. The seed is probably one of the most diverse parts of the cannabis plant. Aside from the obvious function of procreation, the seeds can be used to produce animal feed and birdseed, soap, hair product, lotions, cosmetics, balms, varnishes, ink, fuel, solvents, lubricants, putty, cooking oils, vitamins and many other various types of helpful items.

In a statement issued in 2012, studies have shown that the United States is populated by almost 313 million people. Of that population, 10% or 32.7 million people, have been reported as using cannabis regularly. The true number is likely more than 10%. Every 36 seconds, a marijuana related arrest occurs in the United States and billions of dollars are wasted every year on these incarcerations as well as these arrests. With all of these statistics and figures being thrown at us almost daily from both sides of the war, it is not surprising that many just choose to remain apathetic and simply hope for the best. This approach has gotten us nowhere fast. If you are a cannabis user and believe in the magic of marijuana, then get up, stand up and don’t give up the fight.
