Oregon Health Authority’s Marijuana Extract Policy Hurts Patients That Are Suffering The Most

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

dabs concentrates extracts bho shatterShock waves were sent throughout the Oregon medical marijuana world this week when the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) issued a directive to medical marijuana dispensary operators to no longer accept cannabis extracts. Cannabis extracts are defined by OHA as involving heat and pressure during the creation process. That means no BHO and no CO2 products. No more shatter. No more cartridges. At least not in the near future.

Only entities that have a license to produce extracts are considered legal by OHA. The problem of course being that there aren’t any licenses currently. In fact, the application process doesn’t even start until next month for OHA. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission will regulate recreational marijuana, which will eventually have its own licenses for extracts. But as of right now there are no licenses issued in the State of Oregon. So when will licenses be issued? Per Oregon Live:

The health authority plans to roll out a licensing process for commercial extract companies, but André Ourso, manager of the state’s medical marijuana program, said Tuesday that the application won’t be online until April 1.

Applying, he said, is just the beginning of a “long process” for getting registered. In all, he said the process could take “a few months.”

Pennsylvania Could Become the Next State to Legalize a Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, March, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

Pennsylvania may be well be on its way to becoming the next state to legalize a comprehensive medical marijuana program.

On Wednesday, following a nerve-racking few days debating additional amendments, the House of Representatives voted 149 to 43 in favor of Senate Bill 3, a measure aimed at legalizing a medicinal cannabis program for patients suffering from around 17 qualified conditions — a major move forward from the nature of the original proposal. 

The bill must now go before the Senate once again in hopes that the body will agree with the House and put its seal of approval on the changes made to the original language. Although the Senate voted 40 to 7 in favor of the measure in May of last year, there are some concerns that the recent amendments could be a deterrent to a majority vote. Nevertheless, reports indicate that the earliest the Senate would possibly deliberate the issue would be next Monday.

New technique could more accurately measure cannabinoid dosage in marijuana munchies

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

As more states decriminalize recreational use of marijuana and expand its medical applications, concern is growing about inconsistent and inaccurate dosage information listed on many products, including brownies and other edibles. But now scientists report that they have developed a technique that can more precisely measure cannabis compounds in gummy bears, chocolates and other foods made with marijuana. They say this new method could help ensure product safety in the rapidly expanding cannabis retail market.

The researchers present their work today at the 251st National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
