New York To Legalize Medical Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, June, 20th 2014 by THCFinder
ny-legalizing-marijuanaAfter numerous attempts, and lots of negotiating, it appears that medical marijuana is going to be legalized in New York State. Medical marijuana has passed the New York Assembly numerous times, but always failed in the Senate. Last week it appeared that the Senate was set to vote and approve medical marijuana, until New York Governor Cuomo sprung a last minute list of demands in an attempt to kill the process. Thankfully, negotations were successful and New York will likely get a medical marijuana program after all. See a press release below from the Drug Policy Alliance, who was instrumental in getting the legislation passed:
 
Today, the Assembly, Senate and Governor Cuomo announced a deal to move forward on a limited medical marijuana program, which makes New York the 23rd state to adopt such a program. The new law will provide relief to thousands of New Yorkers suffering from debilitating illnesses such as cancer, AIDS, glaucoma and multiple sclerosis, as well as children struggling with seizure disorders.
 
Although the final bill language has not yet been released, advocates were pleased to hear that there had been a breakthrough in Albany.  As recently as yesterday, it was unclear that an agreement could be reached between the Governor and legislative leaders on behalf of thousands of patients and their caregivers who have demanded passage of the Compassionate Care Act, which recently passed the Assembly.
 
Information currently available about the bill suggests that it has some serious limitations and restrictions.  For example, the bill would prohibit smoking, restrict any access to the raw plant form of marijuana.  The number of producers and dispensaries is also reportedly extremely limited, raising questions about whether the system will be able to meet the needs of patients in New York.
 
Statement for Gabriel Sayegh of the Drug Policy Alliance:
 
“New York has finally done something significant for thousands of patients who are suffering and need relief now. They will benefit from this compromise.
 
“That said, this is not the bill we wanted. We are disappointed to learn that eligible conditions have been limited, and despite strong medical evidence about the benefits of smoked and raw cannabis, leaders decided to exclude this as an option for doctors and patients in New York.  We strongly believe that the decision about the mode of administration for any medication should be left up to doctor and their patients.  The cost of purchasing a vaporizer and the extract products will likely leave many low-income patients behind, and there is little research on the long-term health effects of using extracts. We know that overly restrictive programs, like New Jersey’s, can create enormous obstacles for suffering patients. We hope that the proposal being put forth today is both well regulated and flexible enough to ensure that patients who need medication get it – and get it in a timely fashion.  We look forward to seeing the details and to working ensure this is implemented as quickly as possible.

Laws Changing In LA

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 20th 2014 by THCFinder

Unfortunately for the marijuana community in Los Angeles, California, their easily obtainable concentrates and edibles are on thin ice. The production of concentrated cannabis products has been under tough scrutiny, following a massive outbreak of butane hash oil explosions. These explosions, due to uneducated people attempting to make butane hash oil, have been giving concentrates a bad name. Pair that with the unfortunate incident in Colorado where edibles were suspect in a young man's suicide.
 
There is still hope though, for the stoners of LA. There is a bill that is being proposed that will regular the medical marijuana business with a little more structure. As of right now, it's difficult for people to gauge things like edible strengths, as most edibles are completely different in the amount of THC that they contain. The new bill is quite a bit different then the original, which was attempting to prohibit the kinds of marijuana that could be recommended by doctors and also which doctors could actually prescribe them. Add the concentrate ban to that and people were seriously pissed. The new bill is even being backed by California Police Chiefs Association, an interesting fact since the group has never really said anything in regards to marijuana before this.
 
Thankfully, the new bill won't ban concentrates or edibles and you'll be able to still get them in the city of LA. Since there are many patients that can't smoke or need the added strength of concentrates to alleviate their pain, a ban on such products would leave some people without their meds. It's great that the new bill will still allow these people to medicate like normal. And it is definitely important to have cannabis products labeled with the correct dosage and amount of THC, in case there are novice users around who are attempting to build a tolerance. Let's also hope that the risk of BHO explosions goes does, as the negative effects from such actions could definitely lead to laws banning concentrates in the future.

Banana Kush - Indica

With genetics like Banana and the enormously legendary OG Kush, this strain is sure to be potent. With a THC content between 18% and 20%, Banana Kush not only packs a serious punch, but is arguably the best tasting California cannabis available. It is a favorite among dispensaries mostly in Southern California, but has recently expanded to be found in dispensaries throughout the state. This bud is one of those strains that tastes exactly how it smells, particularly when vaporized.

Medicated Avocado Shake
 
It's hot out. While most of us wish for summer during the colder times of the year, I think a lot of us forget how hot it actually gets once the chill leaves the air. Unfortunately, it's already been a scorching hot summer on the east coast but thankfully, there's this healthy, cooling recipe that includes avocados to help cool you down. This medicated shake is popular in Brazil, a place that is definitely hotter than the east coast... Or the west! So no matter where you are, you're sure to be able to chill out with this beverage!
 
What You'll Need;
3 tablespoons sugar (To taste! This amount can be changed if you don't want to add this much sugar!)
1 avocado, pitted and scooped out of peel
1 1/2 cups cannabis milk "Cannabis Milk Recipe"
1/2 cup ice
 
Put all of your ingredients together in to a blender and process them together until the texture is smooth and creamy. This recipe will give you two servings so be sure to stick two glasses in the freezer so that they're nice and cold once you get the consistency you want! When you're done with the blending, simply pour the mix in to the glasses. You can garnish them with a slice of avocado for an extra aesthetic value!
 
Cannabis is extremely beneficial to your health when ingested. In addition to the cannabis milk, you can also add hemp seeds to this recipe, which will give you an extra boost of omega acids and vitamins! Not to mention hemp seeds taste good! In addition to the cannabis working to make your body function better, avocado is incredibly good for your health, giving you a healthy dose of fiber and vitamins. The fruit also decreases a person's risk of diabetes as well as cancer. Not only will this shake cool you off, it'll keep you healthy!
