Medical marijuana clinic Good Intentions opens in Chicago

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, August, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-eval-in-chicagoAugust 7, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A medical marijuana clinic opened Wednesday in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood, becoming the first of its kind in the state of Illinois.
 
Good Intentions is located at 1723 North Ashland Avenue and is managed by a medical practice. There is no large, flashy sign outside the clinic -- only a small one in a window that reads, "Medical marijuana may be right for you."
 
Good Intentions is privately owned by Tammi Jacobi, who said the clinic would open Wednesday for patient evaluations. Marijuana will not be distributed until the Illinois Compassionate Use Act Program Pilot goes into effect on January 1.
 
Jacobi operates a similar clinic in Michigan. The director of the Chicago clinic said there has been such an overwhelming response that the clinic will have an open registration.
 
Last week, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn signed a bill making it legal for doctors to prescribe as much as 2.5 ounces of medical marijuana every 14 days for people suffering from certain illnesses.
 
Illinois became the 20th state to legalize medical marijuana.
 
The clinic hours are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Marijuana stops child's severe seizures

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, August, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-helps-treat-seizures"The biggest misconception about treating a child like little Charlotte is most people think that we're getting her high, most people think she's getting stoned," Josh Stanley said, stressing his plant's low THC levels. "Charlotte is the most precious little girl in the world to me. I will do anything for her."
 
The brothers started the Realm of Caring Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides cannabis to adults and children suffering from a host of diseases, including epilepsy, cancer, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's, who cannot afford this treatment.
 
People have called them the Robin Hoods of marijuana. Josh Stanley said it's their calling. They use the money they make from medical marijuana patients and get donations from sponsors who believe in their cause. They only ask patients such as the Figis to donate what they can.
 
"We give (cannabis) away for next to free," Stanley said. "The state won't allow us to actually give it away, so we give it away for pennies really."
 
Charlotte gets a dose of the cannabis oil twice a day in her food.
 
Gedde found three to four milligrams of oil per pound of the girl's body weight stopped the seizures.
 
Today, Charlotte, 6, is thriving. Her seizures are down to just one a day, almost solely in her sleep. Not only is she walking, she can ride her bicycle. She feeds herself and is talking more and more each day.
 
"I literally see Charlotte's brain making connections that haven't been made in years," Matt said. "My thought now is, why were we the ones that had to go out and find this cure? This natural cure? How come a doctor didn't know about this? How come they didn't make me aware of this?"
 
The marijuana strain Charlotte and now 41 other patients use to ease painful symptoms of diseases such as epilepsy and cancer has been named after the little girl who is getting her life back one day at a time.

Uruguay To Sell Legal Marijuana At Low Price Of $2.5 Per Gram To Compete With Black Market

Category: News | Posted on Wed, August, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
selling-two-fifty-gramsGood news, Uruguayan potheads -- your weed habit is about to get a whole lot cheaper.
 
Uruguay's lower house passed an unprecedented bill last week that legalizes marijuana and regulates the production, distribution, and sale of weed for adult consumers. El Pais now reports via Univision that the bill fixes the price of marijuana around $2.50 per gram. The bill is up for vote in the Senate, where it is expected to be passed, and finally signed into law by President José Mujica, a longtime supporter of drug reform.
 
The debate surrounding the bill is nothing new: critics point to potential health and welfare consequences, while supporters hail the attempt to pragmatically address the widespread use of marijuana and the systemic failures of the global war on drugs. And as The Economist points out, countries like Portugal and the Netherlands have significantly decriminalized the possession and use of small amounts of pot.
 
What sets Uruguay's bill apart, however, is that it provides for government control over the entire marijuana industry, from cultivation to consumption. Individual citizens, cooperatives, and private companies can grow a specified amount of weed each month, though it may only be sold to consumers by state-run pharmacies. Purchasers will have to register with the state and will be limited to 40 grams per month.
 
Such regulations could deter Uruguay's 120,000 or so marijuana users from leaving the black market, which is where the price point comes into play. Foreign Policy's Park MacDougald notes that the government has two tools at its disposal to lure customers into the legal market it seeks to create: affordability and quality control. While InSight Crime reports that the current cost of pot varies by region and can reach up to about $5 per gram, Julio Calzada, Uruguay's drug czar, told El Pais that the proposed fixed price of $2.50 per gram is on par with the going underground rates, the hope being that the competitive pricing will attract users to the legal market without providing a profit incentive for resale in the black market.
