Push is on for medical marijuana in Florida

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, August, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-floriday-push-continuesThe push to legalize medical marijuana is gaining support in Florida and across the country.  
 
And one of the biggest legal names in Florida is among those leading the efforts. If well-known attorney John Morgan gets his way, Florida voters will get to decide whether to legalize medical marijuana.
Right now, medical marijuana users risk going to jail in Florida.
 
Bob Jordan, the husband of a marijuana user said, "We know it's an uphill battle, but it's a battle worth fighting."
 
Jordan said marijuana saved his wife Cathy's life. She has been battling ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's disease) since 1991.
 
Both she and her husband believe she has survived for more than two decades because she smokes marijuana.
 
"She has medical necessity. She has to use it," Bob Jordan said. "There's nothing else out there that works. We've proven that. So they're saying they agree with her on using it, but you can't buy it or grow it."
 
It's that Catch 22 that has lawyers like Morgan pushing legislators to put the legalization of medical marijuana on the November 2014 ballot. He takes his pot fight to a political forum in Tallahassee on Thursday, but he says it is an uphill battle.
 
"I mean you can't even get a hearing in Tallahassee," Morgan said. "They were having hearings on everything else, but not on this."
 
And although the Jordans support the idea, for Cathy, 2014 could be too late.
 
"I am very grateful that this is gonna happen," she said. "But I'm really hoping that the current House and Senate will work with us and get it done this year."

Quinn signs Illinois medical marijuana bill into law

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, August, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
illinois-gov-mmj-billGov. Pat Quinn today signed a bill legalizing the use of marijuana for medical purposes in Illinois that supporters say is the strictest in the nation.
 
Jim Champion, a military veteran from Somonauk who suffers from multiple sclerosis, joined the governor at a bill signing ceremony at the University of Chicago. He told of the relief he gets from marijuana, which his wife indicated allows him to more than cut in half the number of pills he takes. Champion said he is glad he'll soon no longer be violating the law to get pain relief.
 
The law takes effect Jan. 1, but state regulators are likely to need months to come up with the rules. That means it could be until next summer before those suffering from 42 illnesses including cancer, AIDS and multiple sclerosis can legally seek relief through marijuana.
 
Under the new law, a person could be prescribed no more than 2.5 ounces of marijuana over two weeks. That's enough to fill two small sandwich bags. In addition, the prescribing doctor must have a prior and ongoing medical relationship with the patient. And a doctor must find that the patient has one of a few dozen serious or chronic conditions for the marijuana to be prescribed.
 
Patients would have to buy the marijuana from one of 60 dispensing centers throughout the state and would not be allowed to legally grow their own. Workers at dispensing centers would undergo criminal background checks, the stores would be under round-the-clock camera surveillance and users would carry cards that indicate how much they had bought to prevent stockpiling.
 
Marijuana would be grown inside 22 cultivation centers registered with the state.
