Over 100,000 NYC Residents Could Benefit From Access To Medical Cannabis

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, August, 31st 2013 by THCFinder
nyc-medical-mj-patientsMore than 100,000 New York City residents suffering from serious medical conditions such as cancer and chronic pain could benefit from legal access to cannabis therapy, according to a report released today by the New York City Comptroller’s Office. The mission of the Comptroller’s Office is to ensure the financial health of New York City by advising the Mayor, the City Council, and the public of the City’s financial condition.
 
The report, entitled “100,000 Reasons: Medical Marijuana in the Big Apple,” finds that some 8 out of 10 New Yorkers endorse permitting patient access to medical cannabis, and estimates that at least 100,000 City residents would immediately benefit from its legalization.
 
“[W]e believe this is a conservative estimate,” authors of the report state, “because registration for medical marijuana programs in the various states falls short of the potential. Patients experience social stigma and related social sanctions for using medical marijuana, and many doctors are not familiar with its benefits. Moreover, the federal government has created unnecessary obstacles for academic and research institutions to study marijuana, thereby impeding research that could lead to a broader use of medical marijuana.”
 
The report endorses various legal and legislative efforts to amend state and federal marijuana laws. Locally, the report’s authors recommend that New York City establish a ‘Medical Cannabis Research Fund’ to engage in clinical study of the plant; they further proposes the establishment of cannabis grow operations at selected public hospitals. The report also recommends that health insurance providers be required cover some costs related to medical cannabis expenses.
 
“In the 1980s, New York State acknowledged marijuana’s medicinal value and supported research for chemotherapy patients,” the report concludes. “Even though the findings were impressive, the State stopped there. Thirty years later, New York still denies seriously ill patients access to this evidence-based treatment, even as 20 states and Washington D.C. have legalized it. … Today, at least 100,000 New York City residents with the same afflictions could benefit from the same relief. By following the recommendations outlined in this report, we can hit the ground running where we left off just 30 years ago and make a meaningful impact for New Yorkers suffering today and for years to come.”

5-Year-Old Boy to Become Arizona's 40th Medical-Marijuana Patient Under the Age of 18

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, August, 31st 2013 by THCFinder
arizona-mmj-patientA 5-year-old Mesa boy will be Arizona's 40th medical-marijuana patient under the age of 18.
 
Zander Welton has cortical dysplasia, a brain abnormality, which causes him to have seizures, which several medications, two brain surgeries, and an implant haven't solved, according to his parents.
 
According to a fundtraising website set up by Zander's parents, one medication he's on helps decrease the seizures, but causes behavioral issues. The other option presented to them is "another brain surgery that separated the halves of his brain, which would have a 50% chance of reducing seizures, while including side effects like paralysis, coma, or a vegetative state."
 
His parents are now willing to try medical marijuana for their son.
 
ABC 15 recently did a segment on Welton, and stated that his medical-marijuana application has been accepted.
 
Zander's parents have also set up a Facebook page that chronicles Zander's struggles, including videos of him suffering seizures:
 
In the ABC 15 report, Zander's parents say that they saw videos online of other kids with similar medical issues doing extraordinarily well with medical-marijuana treatments.
 
The boy's parents have also set up a fundraising website, hoping to raise enough money to pay for a year of medical-marijuana treatments, which have been recommended by a doctor.
 
State health department statistics indicate that one-tenth of one percent of medical-marijuana cardholders are under the age of 18.
