Medical Marijuana Patients Rally To Stop Mayors Proposed Ban

mj-is-medicineCannabis Advocates Urge City Council to Form Working Group for Sensible Policy
 
On Monday, September 16th, 2013 Ventura City Council will reconvene after their break. Medical marijuana patients, providers and advocates will gather in front of city hall at 5pm for the third time in the hopes of stopping the blanket ban proposed by Mayor Mike Tracy in July. The proposed ordinance will affect patients by making it impossible for any professional medical marijuana dispensaries, delivery services or cooperative cultivation to take place within the city.
 
Members of the Americans for Safe Access Ventura Action Group and concerned community members are asking for sensible regulation and would like to form a working group with government and law enforcement to create compassionate policy while addressing the concerns of both sides of the issue.
 
Although California voters passed the Compassionate Use Act of 1996, the City of Ventura has made no effort to assure patients have safe access to marijuana for use in the treatment of serious and chronic conditions.
 
“There may be some medical quality there in the THC, but it seems to me there’d be a better way of dispensing it than a marijuana cigarette” stated Mayor Mike Tracy to KEYT News on July 8th. ASA member and medical marijuana patient Rachel Sedacca responds to the Mayor’s comments “This is exactly the point. Dispensaries are important because that’s where patients can go to get tinctures, edibles and topical salves. It’s clear that the mayor who’s proposing this ban knows little about the issue of marijuana as medicine. We’d like to work together for safe access in Ventura for patients that need it. Most people are familiar with the cannabinoid THC and its psychotropic qualities, but are less familiar with cannabidiol or CBD, which has been used with amazing results, effectively reducing or stopping devastating, relentless seizures for epileptics, crippling spasticity and pain in patients with Multiple Sclerosis, even showing it can shrink tissues of cancerous tumors. However marijuana high in CBD content is just not available on the street because it doesn’t get people “high.” Staffed by professionals, dispensaries offer safe access to patients, assuring quality, consistency and affordability not available on the black market, where patients will be forced to turn if the ban passes.”

Federal marijuana decision clears way for Oregon hemp production

Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
hemp-production-oregonA historic federal decision not to challenge marijuana legalization in Colorado and Washington is also a green light for industrial hemp production in Oregon, advocates say.
 
Sen. Floyd Prozanski, D-Eugene, who co-sponsored a 2009 law legalizing hemp production that has since been on hold, said the new federal stance on marijuana should allow the state to start crafting rules on hemp.
 
"Sounds like we will be having a conversation with the Department of Agriculture and figuring out what the next steps are," said Prozanski.
 
And federal authorities appear unlikely to question Prozanski's interpretation of the Aug. 29 memo, written by the Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole, laying out the administration's new approach to state marijuana laws.
 
Amanda Marshall, the U.S. Attorney for Oregon and the state's highest ranking federal law enforcement official, told The Oregonian that her office would not interfere with hemp production in Oregon as long as the state creates "robust" regulatory controls and well-funded enforcement.
 
"Hemp is cannabis," Marshall said. "It's marijuana, and under federal law, it's exactly the same thing."

Man convinced marijuana oil will cure his cancer

Paul Morrissey has put off medical treatments for about a year as he tries frantically to source the oil, which he says he was sold on after watching a video by Rick Simpson of Maccan, N.S., called “Run from the Cure.”
 
The cancer is spreading to his back and lymph nodes, but Morrissey said that’s because he could only source a small amount of the oil in Toronto and hasn’t obtained enough to cure the disease.
 
“I put off treatment for a year and knew it would get worse if I didn’t get the oil,” said Morrissey, who was willing to take the chance.
 
“This cancer battle, to me, is a battle of faith.”
 
He said he was also admitted to hospital in July with renal failure and his next step is to try to go to British Columbia to source some oil.
 
In the video, Simpson claims the marijuana oil is nature’s miracle and that he gave it away to about 5,000 people for free until running into legal barriers.
 
Simpson asserts medical, legal and political authorities and the pharmaceutical industry are ignoring the cancer epidemic and the potential of the oil.
 
Morrissey, on his way to Toronto in�December, stopped off in Maccan and said he spent five hours with Simpson and some others featured in the video, which suggests marijuana oil as a fix not only for cancer but various types of pain and a range of diseases such as glaucoma and diabetes. The video also provides instructions for making the oil.
 
“Four people in that house had cancer,” Morrissey said. “They cured themselves.”
