Medical marijuana use in Texas now up to the governor

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, May, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

Tens of thousands of Texans with a loved one suffering from epilepsy are now waiting to see what Governor Abbott will do. The legislature has sent to his desk a bill that would permit the medical use of marijuana oils to treat intractable epilepsy. The question is, will he sign it or veto it?

150,000 Texans suffer epileptic seizures, young and adult. There are families like Jim and Katie Graham. Their five year old son Eliot has them. They are supporting the Compassionate Use Act, to allow those patients to use cannabis oil. They’ve watched fourteen other states approve such a law. The cannabis oil has little THC content, the stuff that gives pot smokers their buzz. But it has been proven nearly 100% effective stopping seizures. The Grahams say Eliot’s seizures began when he was two.

Katie Graham, Eliot’s mother, recalls, “He was a typically developing two year old. Played, loved to be with his brother, very social and smiley. Then the seizures started. They are extremely debilitating. He was having them all day, clusters of ten a day, eight jerks in a cluster, 80 to 90 seizures in a day. We tried medication after medication, they did not work.”

The cannabis oil could only be used if a patient did not see results from at least two medications and has the approval of two physicians. Several doctors testified on behalf of the bill. The Grahams say other medications have side effects or simply do not work. Katie Graham says, “It’s a hard, sad moment when the doctor tells you well, it’s time to try the drugs you tried before, again. It’s a really hopeless moment. So we’re really hoping to have access to this high CBD oil. And give Eliot a chance.”

Texas is one of sixteen states where marijuana is illegal for medical and recreational use. Although some critics argued the law would open the barn door for other uses of marijuana, the Compassionate Use Act cleared both the House and Senate easily this session, now it is up to the governor.

Ganjapreneur Interviews Founder Of International Cannabis Association

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

international cannabis associationAs the cannabis legalization movement has gained momentum in Washington, Colorado, Oregon, Alaska, and other states, the cannabis industry has increasingly been referred to as a potential opportunity for legitimate start-ups and businesses. Dan Humiston, founder of the International Cannabis Association, recently discussed how his organization helps aspiring cannabis entrepreneurs in an interview with Ganjapreneur.com, a cannabis industry and business news website.

In the interview, Humiston discusses how he first became involved in the cannabis industry, and why he decided to leave a successful career as a business owner to do so. He explains, “In 1985 I opened my first tanning salon and over the next 30 years I grew my chain Tanning Bed Inc. to the largest chain in New York and one of the largest chains in the country. In the mid 2000’s, tanning industry sales started to fall and by the end of the decade it was apparent that I needed to find ways to reduce or re-purpose the space of my stores which were over 4,000 square feet. In 2012 I saw a 60 minute report about the cannabis industry and started trying to figure out how divide my tanning salons into tanning salons and dispensaries.”

Humiston describes what it was like trying to enter into an industry full of people who were inherently suspicious of outsiders due to the longstanding status of cannabis as an illegal substance. “Oddly enough,” he says, “the industry association would not provide information to non-industry companies because they said they were an industry association formed by industry companies, so why would they willingly provide information for future competitors?”

Rather than being deterred, however, Humiston decided to create an association that would be inclusive to anyone who wanted to learn about the industry. “Realizing that there are many other aspiring marijuana entrepreneurs that are looking for help, I decided to fill the void.”
