Doctor: Marijuana is a needed option

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, August, 25th 2013 by THCFinder
doctors-say-mj-option-neededNORWALK -- There was a personal reason why Dr. Gary Blick became one of the nearly 100 physicians in the state who are licensed to prescribe medical marijuana.
 
"I did this because my 91-year-old mother, who has glaucoma," he said. "Her glaucoma eye drops had failed to produce the desired results and she was facing surgery."
 
Glaucoma is a disease in which the eye typically has excessive internal pressure, damaging the nerve fibers of the retina, the delicate tissue at the back of the eye that's sensitive to light and color.
 
"She was needing surgery to repair her eyes," he said. "But after we started her on medical marijuana, her pressures dropped, and when she stopped smoking marijuana, the pressures went back up again."
 
He said her testimony in Hartford last year had the legislative committee considering the bill "in stitches," even though her testimony countered testimony of the president of the Connecticut Society of Eye Physicians, who said marijuana would not be helpful to glaucoma patients.
 
"So one of the senators said, `Are you aware of Gloria Blick's testimony?' To which he replied, `Well, I guess it would help some people.' To which the senator replied, `Isn't that what we're here for?' "
 
Blick sees medical marijuana as just one of the arsenal of options that physicians should have to ease pain and provide relief for various diseases.

Canada's police chiefs suggest tickets for marijuana possession in lieu of criminal charges

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
canada-wants-to-ticket-for-mj-possessionWINNIPEG — Police chiefs meeting in Winnipeg say handing out tickets for illegal possession of marijuana may be more efficient than laying criminal charges.
 
Delegates to the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police annual meeting have passed a resolution that says officers need more “enforcement options” to deal with people caught with pot.
 
Association president Jim Chu says in a release that criminal charges place a significant burden on police and court resources.
 
Chu, who is chief constable of the Vancouver Police Service, also points out that a conviction results in a criminal record that places barriers on future travel, employment and citizenship.
 
He says the association does not support legalization of marijuana.
 
The resolution was presented by the association’s drug abuse committee.
 
“The CACP is not in support of decriminalization or legalization of cannabis in Canada,” Chu said in a release Tuesday. “It must be recognized, however, that under the current legislation the only enforcement option for police, when confronted with simple possession of cannabis, is either to turn a blind eye or lay charges.
