Illinois doctor fights charges he misled patient about marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

Supporters of an Illinois doctor who's in trouble for a marijuana recommendation say his case could have a chilling effect on other doctors' participation in the state's medical cannabis pilot program.

Dr. Joseph Starkman, 36, faces possible suspension or revocation of his license or multiple violations of the Medical Practice Act. Starkman finished his testimony Friday, said Stephanie Wolfson, an attorney for Starkman who was at the hearing.

State regulators allege Starkman misled a 79-year-old patient by issuing a bogus medical marijuana certification for a $250 fee. They claim Starkman told the patient he qualified for marijuana after learning the man had a previous diagnosis of glaucoma, but that Starkman didn't perform an eye exam himself.

"The Department will investigate complaints of illegal or unprofessional behavior by physicians, including those involved in the Medical Cannabis Pilot Program, and, if the evidence clearly demonstrates non-compliant actions, intends to discipline violators," said Terry Horstman, a spokesman for the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.

Does Drinking Coffee Improve Your High?

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

Coffee and cannabis are the peanut butter and jelly of the drug world; they complement each other so well it’s unreal. But what makes them a match made in drug heaven? Does smoking marijuana while drinking coffee actually improve your high? There seems to be a relation to places with premium coffee also demanding top quality cannabis like Seattle and Portland—or it might be the rain, who knows. However, turns out there may be some science surrounding your brain, marijuana and coffee and how they all interact when being consumed at the same time.

Caffeine is the world’s most used drug to encourage brain activity and keep you alert. Caffeine doesn’t give you energy, but it does block receptors in your brain from receiving adenosine which is the chemical compound that causes your brain to relax and get sleepy. Because the chemical compound of caffeine is so similar to adenosine, this switch is seamless, but after 6 hours the effectiveness of coffee decreases by 50 percent.

Unlike many other intoxicants available (like alcohol), cannabis contains cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the brain. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) also highly resembles anandamide, which is natural transmitter to the neurones in your brain. After a neuron fires, there is a break in the transmission of thought to not overwhelm the mind and keep you calm and controlled in thought. However, cannabis stops these breaks and allows the user to amplify their thoughts and imagination.

Marijuana TV Commercial Airs In Eugene And Medford After Portland Rejects It

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

oregon medical marijuana business conference ommbcI think that it is well known that Portland, Oregon is one of, if not the, most liberal city in America. Virtually everything is tolerated there, and in many ways Portland is a leader in marijuana culture and in the marijuana industry. The late great Jack Herer owned a headshop (which is still there and ran by his family) in Portland for a reason. With that being said, marijuana discrimination still occurs in Portland. Case in point is the refusal by a Portland media outlet to air a TV commercial for the upcoming Oregon Medical Marijuana Business Conference. Per Marijuana Politics:

Even after marijuana is legalized in a state, the fight for true equality continues. The fight can be personal, such as the unjust firing of a TV news anchor, or it can be on behalf of a business, or industry as a whole, like KATU in Portlandrefusing to air a commercial for the Oregon Medical Marijuana Business Conference (OMMBC). Portland is known as being one of the most cannabis-friendly cities in the world, so it comes as a great surprise to me that a marijuana commercial airs in Eugene and Medford after Portland TV rejects the ad. The OMMBC commercial is currently playing on KMTR in Eugene and KTVL in Medford, both network stations are playing the commercial during prime time, including the news.

A commercial for a cannabis vaporizer was supposed to air in Colorado, but was pulled at the last minute recently and some medical marijuana clinics, like Ashland Alternative Health, have advertised on television, but this is, I believe, the firstmarijuana business commercial to mention “recreational” marijuana on network television in Oregon, or anywhere in the country (if there are other “recreational” marijuana commercials airing on network television, please let me know in the comments). It is a shame that KATU, broadcasting in a progressive place like Portland, Oregon, would refuse to run the ad, especially when TV stations in Eugene and Medford were happy to air the commercial.
