Marijuana extract now legal, but can you get it?

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 19th 2015 by THCFinder

The cause of medicinal marijuana seemingly took a step forward in Tennessee this month when Gov. Bill Haslam signed a measure making an extract of marijuana legal for use in treating intractable epileptic seizures.

Initially, the legalization of non-intoxicating cannabidiol oil (CBD) was sought for child victims of particularly severe forms of epilepsy, but the final version of the bill has made CBD available for anyone suffering from debilitating seizures.

There is enough evidence of CBD’s effectiveness to convince former opponents like Dr. Sanjay Gupta and local leaders like physician state Sen. Mark Green.

However, many Tennessee families are still in the dark about whether CBD is available, what the procedures are for legally obtaining and using it, and how the process of determining eligibility is supposed to work.

Adding problems these families don’t need are questions as to whether CBD is still illegal under federal law and whether out-of-state providers are violating the law. The answers are important because CBD cannot be made in Tennessee.

Unfortunately, with the issue of medical marijuana in flux and subject to a confusing number of laws at different levels of government and at cross-purposes, the answers are far from clear.

Oregon Senate Committee Approves Harmful Medical Marijuana Bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, May, 19th 2015 by THCFinder

oregon medical marijuana senate bill 964The Oregon Senate Special Committee on Implementing Measure 91 voted tonight on Senate Bill 964. The bill was approved unanimously and sent to the Senate for a full vote. The bill will make huge changes to the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) if it becomes law. Among some of the scarier language in the bill:

  • Section 6 states that all medical marijuana growers have to submit a report monthly to the Oregon Health Authority which states the “number of mature and immature marijuana plants, the amount of marijuana leaves and flowers being dried, and the amount of usable marijuana, in the person’s possession” as well as ” the number of mature and mature marijuana plants, and the amount of usable marijuana, that the person transfers to each registry identification cardholder for whom the person produces marijuana.” The report also has to contain the ” amount of usable marijuana that the person transfers to each marijuana processing site: and…to each medical marijuana dispensary.”
  • Section 7 deals with new grow site limits. The section states that if a grow site is located within city limits, there is a cap of 12 mature plants maximum, regardless of how many patients have registered there. If the grow site was registered prior to January 1, 2015, it can be grandfathered in, but not to “exceed 24 mature marijuana plants.” The cap on new gardens that are located outside of city limits would be at 48 mature plants, regardless of the amount of patients registered at the address. If the grow site was registered prior to January 1, 2015, it can be grandfathered in, but not to “exceed 96 mature plants.”
  • Section 70 states, “the governing body of a city or county may adopt ordinances that prohibit the establishment of medical marijuana dispensaries or marijuana processing sites in the area subject to the jurisdiction of the city or county.”

The committee is supposed to be working on making rules related to Oregon Measure 91, but instead has spent most of its time trying to attack the OMMP. Oregon voters approved Oregon Measure 91 which stated no less than three times that the OMMP should remain the same, regardless of what rules were made for recreational marijuana. The fact that five Oregon politicians today voted to go against the will of the voters doesn’t sit well with Measure 91’s Chief Petitioner, Anthony Johnson. Per KOIN 6:

Texas Legislature Kills Marijuana Bills

Category: News | Posted on Tue, May, 19th 2015 by THCFinder

There has been a tremendous amount of enthusiasm for the reform of marijuana laws in the state of Texas over the past several weeks, but all hope has since been abandoned after the state legislaturetossed several pieces of legislation into the garbage.

Although the word on the street—as of last week—was that two bills aimed at decriminalizing and legalizing the leaf for recreational purposes were given the green light to appear this session before the House of Representatives, sources were unfamiliar with the cutthroat authority of the House Calendar Committee’s Todd Hunter. As the deadline approached, it became readily apparent that the legislative gatekeeper was simply refusing to submit the bills to the full House for their consideration—ultimately, killing both measures before they even got started.

The first bill to meet its unfortunate demise was House Bill 507, introduced by Representative Joe Moody, which would have eliminated the criminal penalties associated with petty pot possession and replaced them with a maximum fine of $250. Of course, the passing of this legislation would have had a significant impact on the way the state handles pot offenders, perhaps even laying the groundwork for fewer restrictions in the years to come. As it stands, anyone busted for possession of up to two ounces can spend six months in jail and receive a fine of as much as $2,000.

However, the biggest tragedy of the Lone Star State’s attempt at pot reform was the highly anticipated House Bill 2165, which would have put an end to the prohibition of marijuana across the state by allowing the cannabis plant to be regulated in a manner similar to tomatoes. This measure, which was proposed by Representative David Simpson, would have made Texas one of the next states to establish a fully legal cannabis industry, putting it in the same ranks as four other states where voters have made the decision to end the war on weed.
