Ex-Addict Patrick Kennedy Campaigns to Stop Legal Marijuana

Former Democratic Rep. Patrick Kennedy has kicked off a national campaign to help prevent the legalization of marijuana.
 
"I cannot be silent, and I don't imagine anyone else could be silent if they knew the facts as I know the facts," Kennedy, son of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, told McClatchy Newspapers. 
 
"All I’m trying to do is get those facts to the broader public."
 
Kennedy's words come from experience. The 45-year-old ex-politician is a recovering drug addict who fell asleep behind the wheel of his car and crashed into Capitol Hill security barriers in 2006. In 2010, he announced he wouldn't run for re-election after eight terms in office representing Rhode Island.
 
Kennedy now is chairman of Project SAM — Smart Approaches to Marijuana — a nonprofit group he founded in January to promote policies that decrease marijuana use.
 
"I did try and experiment with marijuana, but I quickly migrated to other drugs and alcohol,” Kennedy told McClatchy.
 
He added that while he once approved of the use of medical marijuana, "I now stand corrected by the science."
 
Kennedy said he is not surprised that Washington and Colorado have voted to legalize marijuana.

Could Medical Marijuana be coming to FL?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, June, 25th 2013 by THCFinder
fl-medical-marijuanaPARRISH — Sitting at the kitchen table in her wheelchair, arms useless at her sides, Cathy Jordan begins another day with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Lou Gehrig's disease.
 
She turns expectantly to her husband, Robert, who fires up a pungent joint and holds it to her lips. Smoke curls through her blond hair as she inhales, holds and exhales.
 
Jordan is well into her third decade with a disease that often kills within five years. She credits marijuana with slowing progression of the condition that destroys nerve cells, ultimately leading to total paralysis and death.
 
"This is keeping me alive,'' she says. It also eases her symptoms such as muscle stiffening, drooling and chronic lung congestion. How does she know it's working? Whenever she is hospitalized and can't have pot, the symptoms come back.
 
Jordan, 63, is a medical anomaly for how long she has survived with ALS.
 
She is also a criminal, breaking the law with every puff.

Parents Of Epileptic 2-Year-Old Upset Over N.J. Medical Marijuana Delays

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, June, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
nj-mmj-childMeghan and Brian Wilson of Scotch Plains, N.J., have been waiting patiently for medical marijuana to become available for their 2-year-old daughter Vivian, “Vivie,” who suffers from a rare and severe form of epilepsy called Dravet syndrome.
 
Inquirer staff writer Jan Hefler recently reported on Vivie’s story.
 
Vivie has had 20 hospitalizations in all, and sometimes her convulsions can last up to an hour. In February, the state issued Vivie a wallet-size medical marijuana card.
 
Gov. Chris Christie inherited the medical marijuana law three years ago and promised strict regulations. When he was asked about Vivie’s case by reporters last month, he said he was “not inclined to allow” medical marijuana for kids.
 
As a minor, Vivie had to get consent from three doctors. Cannabis could alleviate her seizures, and unlike barbiturates, it will not kill brain cells. However, there is only one dispensary in the state, and it will not sell to the Wilsons. They will have to wait for a dispensary in central New Jersey to receive its permit to grow marijuana.
 
Vivie’s neurologist, Orrin Devinsky, supports her using marijuana “given the severity of her epilepsy.” Devinsky is the director of New York University Comprehensive Epilepsy Center and the St. Barnabas Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery in Livingston.
 
Her mother said doctors in the state’s marijuana program do not seem to understand there are kids who qualify for treatment. She said she called 20 doctors before one would certify Vivie as a patient.
 
The Wilsons, who also have a 4-year-old daughter, say they considered moving out of the state, but they are lifelong New Jerseyans.
