Mexico could legalize marijuana in five years

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, July, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
mexico-legalize-cannabisSAN CRISTOBAL, Mexico - Mexico could legalize marijuana within the next five years, stripping brutal drug cartels of a major source of income, former President Vicente Fox said on Friday.
 
Fox, who battled the powerful cartels while president between 2000 and 2006, has since become a staunch advocate of reforming Mexico's drug laws, arguing that prohibition has helped create the criminal market that sustains the gangs.
 
Under his successor, Felipe Calderon, Mexico launched a military offensive to crush the cartels, but the violence spiraled instead, and more than 70,000 people have been killed in drug-related bloodletting since the start of 2007.
 
Legalization was the best way of ending the "butchery" of the drug gangs, Fox said as he hosted a conference in support of the measure in his home state of Guanajuato in central Mexico.
 
President Enrique Pena Nieto, who took office in December, is opposed to legalization, but he has said that the decision by the US states of Washington and Colorado to legalize recreational marijuana use has given him a more open mind.
 
Asked by Reuters whether Mexico could legalize marijuana by the time Pena Nieto's term ends in 2018, Fox said:
 
"I think it's going to happen much sooner. Once California gets into this, Mexico is going to be obligated to speed up its decision process."
 
Previous bills to legalize marijuana in Mexico have failed to move forward and a majority of Mexicans oppose such a move.
 
California, which borders Mexico, rejected a 2010 measure to legalize cannabis, though medical marijuana is legal.
 
Plans are still underway to legalize recreational use of marijuana in California, and Tom Angell, a spokesman for Marijuana Majority, a US-based group in favour of cannabis reform, said the state was very likely to vote again by 2016.

Brandon Krenzler defends giving marijuana to ill 7-year-old daughter MyKayla

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
father-gives-child-marijuanaSHORTLY after MyKayla Comstock, 7, was diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia, her father Brandon Krenzler began administering marijuana to her.
 
The family live in Oregon, where medical marijuana is legal, however the use of it by children remains controversial.
 
"She was very sick, she was in a lot of pain ... she was basically experiencing everything you wouldn't want your daughter to experience," Mr Krenzler told the Huffington Post.
 
Doctors initially suspected lactose intolerance before discovering a mass in her chest and making the cancer diagnosis. Her parents sought approval from her oncologist for cannabis use ten days after her diagnosis.
 
"The doctor’s response was not very good at all," Mr Krenzler says. "She called us, basically, criminals."
 
The family sought a new oncologist. Mostly, however, he says the medical professionals the family deals with will not be drawn on the subject, some asking that he "refrain from discussing their opinions with the media or anyone else at all."
 
Writing on his CannaDad blog, Mr Krenzler describes some of MyKayla’s symptoms in the weeks leading up to her diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia: fevers and spotty rashes, constantly coughing, severe stomach pain, a lack of appetite and night sweats.

Can NH patients get medical marijuana in other states? Not really

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
nh-patientsWhile New Hampshire patients wait for marijuana dispensaries to be established in this state, a process that may take years, it’s easy to wonder whether they could just drive over the border and get their doctor’s order filled at dispensaries already up and running in neighboring states.
 
The answer? Not really.
 
The only possibility is Maine, whose medical marijuana law includes a “reciprocity clause” that allows out-of-state residents to get marijuana.
 
However, this is allowed only if you have a medical certificate from a physician or osteopath certified to practice in Maine. It’s not enough to have a certificate from your own doctor in New Hampshire; you’d have to establish a relationship with a Maine doctor, which at a minimum would include office visits.
 
That clause was designed “to allow people who summer in Maine, or college students, to get (marijuana),” said Marietta D’Agostino, director of the Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Program. “We’re certainly not looking to have people drive up for the day to get it.”
 
Heading west instead of east won’t help: While Vermont’s medical marijuana law allows certificates from New Hampshire doctors, it is limited to Vermont residents only.
 
Massachusetts may have dispensaries operating by next year, but it is also limited to state residents.
