Oregon Legalizes Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Thu, August, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
oregon-mmj-dispensariesOregon is legalizing medical marijuana dispensaries.
 
Gov. John Kitzhaber signed a bill on Wednesday giving the state authority to license, inspect and audit stores selling marijuana.
 
Medical marijuana patients currently are required to grow the drug themselves or designate someone to grow it for them.
 
Dozens of marijuana dispensaries exist already, but they are not explicitly allowed and operate in a legal gray area. Authorities have moved to shut them down in some areas.
 
Proponents say existing businesses should be brought under state scrutiny to protect patients. Critics say the dispensaries will make it easier for criminals to abuse the medical marijuana program.

Christie confronted over medical marijuana bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, August, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
christie-blows-off-mmj(CNN) – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told a desperate father Wednesday that he will decide by Friday whether or not to sign a medical marijuana bill that would make a version of the drug available to the man's epileptic daughter.
 
The bill, S2842, was passed by the state assembly June 24 with a large majority in the Democratically-controlled legislature, 55-13, but Christie has so far not said whether or not he will sign it. The measure would expand to children the medical marijuana access already in place for adults.
 
According to CNN affiliate WCBS-TV New York, Brian Wilson is the father of two year-old Vivian, who suffers a version of epilepsy called Dravet syndrome. Normal epilepsy medications have so far failed to work for Vivian and her family believes medical marijuana may be able to help.
 
Trying to get an answer on the bill but unable to get a meeting with the governor, Wilson and members of his family crashed a small Christie campaign stop at a local diner in Scotch Plains, New Jersey. They beseeched the governor to sign the bill and allow for a version of medical marijuana to be administered to Vivian and other children like her.
 
"I was wondering what the holdup was, it's been like two months now," Wilson said to Christie.
 
Christie responded that while the decision may be simple for Wilson, it's not as simple for the Republican governor. Christie is thought to be a major contender for his party's 2016 nomination for president.
 
"These are complicated issues," Christie told Wilson.
 
"I know you think it's simple and it's not."
 
Christie has in the past expressed trepidation about marijuana. "I am not going to turn New Jersey into Colorado and California. I'm not legalizing marijuana in New Jersey," he said in July.

Cannabis May Reverse Symptoms Of Parkinsons And Alzheimers

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, August, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-brain-damageA new study funded by the National Institute for Translational Medicine, and published in last month’s issue of the journal Molecular Neurobuology, has found that cannabis may treat, as well as reverse the symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parknson’s and Alzheimer’s.
 
According to researchers; “Our findings support the potential of cannabidiol in reversing cognitive decline and its clinical use in treating neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease.”
 
For the study, researchers dosed rats with cannabidiol – a compound found in cannabis – and concluded that:
 
CBD rescued iron-induced effects, bringing hippocampal DNM1L, caspase 3, and synaptophysin levels back to values comparable to the control group. Our results suggest that iron affects mitochondrial dynamics, possibly trigging synaptic loss and apoptotic cell death and indicate that CBD should be considered as a potential molecule with memory-rescuing and neuroprotective properties to be used in the treatment of cognitive deficits observed in neurodegenerative disorders.
 
The study was conducted by researchers at Pontifical Catholic University.
