Marijuana amendment would cancel Florida 'bong ban,' advocate says

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 25th 2014 by THCFinder
bong-ban-in-fl-could-be-liftedTALLAHASSEE — Marijuana legalization advocates might have another reason to rejoice if Florida voters approve a proposed constitutional amendment allowing pot for medical use.
 
The initiative's passage also will pre-empt Florida's “bong ban,” which forbids the sale of pipes used to smoke the plant, said the head of the drive behind the amendment.
 
Ben Pollara, campaign manager of United for Care, pointed out that the amendment's definition of marijuana's “medical use” includes “related supplies.”
 
Anything now outlawed as drug paraphernalia, including “metal, wooden, acrylic, glass, stone, plastic, or ceramic pipes,” may be legally sold if used to smoke marijuana to treat a medical condition, Pollara told the Tribune/Scripps Capital Bureau.
 
That could even include a “2-liter-type soda bottle,” which state legislators have banned if used with a controlled substance.
 
Jon Mills, the former University of Florida Levin College of Law dean who drafted the amendment's language, didn't take issue with Pollara's interpretation.
 
“Pragmatically, though, I expect the Legislature will go back and further define what is and what is not (illegal) paraphernalia,” said Mills, who also served as speaker of the Florida House in 1987-88.
 
“But certainly, if you were arrested for having drug paraphernalia and were using marijuana medically, you'd make the argument your device was included” in the amendment's definition, he added.
 
Also in agreement is Sandy D'Alemberte, former Florida State University president and law school dean and past American Bar Association president.
 
“If devices that best administer medical marijuana are on the list” of drug paraphernalia, “then on the face of it, it sounds like you'd have a pretty good argument you weren't breaking the law,” he said.
 
“Ultimately, of course, a court would have to decide,” added D'Alemberte, who also chaired the Florida Constitution Revision Commission in 1977-78.

Doctors In Pennsylvania Are Ready For Legal Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, August, 25th 2014 by THCFinder
doctors-in-pennsylvania-are-ready-for-mmj-legalizationPennsylvania, like every other state in America, has people suffering from various ailments. Not all of these people can treat their conditions with pharmaceutical drugs, or don’t want to because pharmaceuticals drugs can be harmful. These people would benefit greatly if Pennsylvania legalized medical marijuana. It sounds like many doctors in Pennsylvania are on board with it. I just read an interesting article about medical marijuana in Pennsylvania. It included the following quote from a doctor named Jason Bundy, who works for the Center for Pain Control:
 
It is well known among pain management physicians that there are few good options to treat nerve dysfunction (neuropathic) pain….The relevant literature suggests that cannabis can prove more effective in treating neuropathic pain than using higher dose opioids – all while incrementally decreasing the risk posed to patients.  Therefore, I am cautiously optimistic that cannibinoid products may help a certain subset of appropriately selected chronic pain patients.
 
The fact that the federal drug enforcement agency (DEA) still lists cannabis as a schedule I substance (i.e. no accepted medical use / high abuse potential) troubles me though.  Assuming Pennsylvania Senate Bill 1182 passes, I plan to educate myself more on the subject, focus on best practice consensus guidelines and be guided by the anesthesiology adage… start low and go slow… in my practice and for each patient that may receive a cannabis prescription with my DEA number on it.
 
There are quotes from other doctors in the article, both for and against medical marijuana in Pennsylvania. I encourage you to check it out if you live in Pennsylvania. Some of the anti-medical marijuana doctors need to do some research. I’m hopeful that Pennsylvania’s Legislature passes a medical marijuana bill this next session. A real medical marijuana bill, which legalizes all forms of medical marijuana, not just CBD.

Cigarettes Proven to Be More Dangerous Than Marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, August, 25th 2014 by THCFinder
marijuana-vs-cigarettes
Cigarettes have been proven to be more dangerous than marijuana. Marijuana may also be an alleged safer substitute for cigarette smoking because effects of marijuana are slim in detrimental use versus smoking cigarettes states an influx of studies. Cigarettes contain 40,000 chemicals, 43 of the additive chemicals are proven to cause cancer, they are carcinogenics.
 
Formaldehyde, tar, the highly addictive nicotine and arsenic can be traced in one cigarette. Cigarettes are also inflammatory to the lungs, teeth, gums and heart. Gum disease anywhere from gingivitis to severe periodontal disease leading to tooth loss are correlated to prolonged cigarette use with or without moderation.
 
Marijuana, on the other hand, contains natural additives such as THC, assorted cannabanoids and 100 terpenoids found in other plants such as pine trees. Terpenoids are aromatic and  flavinoids are also a natural ingredient in various types of marijuana. Flavinoids have been linked to being antioxidant and anti inflammatory. Adverse chemicals to the body in marijuana have not yet been discovered.
 
Medical marijuana helps suppress glaucoma, may boost the immune system, eases epileptic seizures, hinders cancer cells and causes many other beneficial effects. Certain concentrations of the flavinoids, cannabinoids and THC exclusively in the plant can be beneficial given the disease at hand.
 
However downsides to marijuana have not yet been proven solid. Most of the downsides are implying association versus a definitive cause and a concrete correlation. Marijuana studies have suggested that gray matter density in the amygdala and  the nucleus accumbens  of the brain maybe a chain reaction to avid smokers. This means that the sensory in those areas creates a dependency on marijuana.
 
This was a subset study with only 20 users, aged 18 to 25 years, at different levels of usage and then non smokers within the same age range. The study may prevail due to MRI scanning the physical properties of the brain. Given such a tiny group, it is purely anecdotal.
 
Main stipulations of recreational marijuana is the perceptive effects. Hallucinations depending on the amount taken vary from person to person. Body weight can also determine the individuals’ adverse hallucinations.
 
Conclusive studies to the overall positive and negative effects of marijuana have yet to become beyond anecdotal. However, cigarettes tell a different tale of objective harm to the body. Proving that marijuana if legal in the state can be a better, less dangerous alternative to cigarettes.
 
Chances of lung cancer and cigarette smoking are in the 80 to 90 percent range for both men and women. Non smokers have a 20 to30 percent chance of getting lung cancer in their lifetime solely due to being around secondhand smokers. Almost 160,000 people die from smoking in a year.
 
Cigarette smoking can also lessen the chances of gum and bone loss repair surgeries and even preventive periodontal gum disease treatment. The chemicals in cigarettes serve as an inflammatory on gum tissue. Also, heart disease and the weakness of the lungs hinders efficient physical exercise.
