Medical Marijuana patients in Michigan can't share

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, June, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
no-sharing-mmjTwo stories popped up today from the state of Michigan that remind me of the inevitable tragic absurdities we get by trying to separate patients from "criminals." Wrap your mind around these latest examples of legal bureaucracy facing sick people who just want to use marijuana under the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act (MMMA).
 
In Nashville, Michigan, there was this patient named Tony Allen Green.  Tony had a valid patient registry card.  Tony had less than 2.5 ounces of marijuana on him, as allowed by law.
 
Tony has a friend named Al Thornton.  Al was a patient who just applied for a valid patient registry card.  However, under Michigan law, after 20 days his application (along with his doctor's recommendation to use cannabis medically) becomes just as valid as a registry card.
 
Tony, a legal patient, gave some of his marijuana (less than 2.5 ounces) to Al, a legal patient.  Somehow, police become involved.  They do not arrest Al, for he is now holding less than 2.5 ounces of marijuana, but they do arrest Tony, for giving Al less than 2.5 ounces of marijuana.
 
Now, isn't that silly?  Tony can sit around puffing joint after joint of his 2.5 ounces.  Al could sit right next to him and do the same.  But if either of them pass a joint to the other, it's a crime?
 
The Barry County Circuit Judge agreed that was silly.  Section 4 of the MMMA clearly allows patients to have 2.5 ounces.  They were both legal patients. The judge dismissed the marijuana delivery charge against Tony.
 
Prosecutors appealed the dismissal.  As they read Section 4, they could only find protection for Tony's and Al's possession of marijuana.  They didn't see anything protecting the delivery of marijuana.  The Court of Appeals, however, upheld the Barry County judge's dismissal, writing, "the MMMA does not place any restrictions on the transfer or delivery of marijuana between adult patients, and we decline to read any such restriction into the act."

Marijuana: What happens to medical shops whose towns have banned recreational pot?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, June, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-shopsSo far, 24 Colorado cities have banned recreational marijuana sales since the passing of Amendment 64. This is not a surprise, since most already had an ordinance prohibiting medical marijuana stores. But what about those that have MMJ shops that now won't be able to switch to recreational -- like, for instance, Englewood, which briefly allowed dispensaries in 2009 but has since banned them. The three dispensaries that were grandfathered in have found it hard to stay open ever since.
"There is a strong push to get dispensaries out of the city," says Colby, manager for Mile High Dispensary; he asked that we not use his last name. "Basically, our plan right now is to open a recreational shop outside of the city, since you have to be a medical facility in Englewood."
 
Along with the ordinance banning recreational marijuana, which was passed last month, Colby says the city also doubled the distance marijuana operations must be from schools, from 1,000 feet to 2,000 feet.
 
This isn't an issue for the dispensary itself, but Mile High's cultivation facility is within the new limit -- and if it's forced to close, the business as a whole may be at risk. Colby says owners will be taking the city to court over the issue next month -- and the shop hopes to win the battle and remain open. To do so, though, it will have to remain a medical store, unlike Mile High Dispensary 2, a sister shop in Lakewood that hopes to open its doors to recreational as well as medical customers once it's legal to do so.

Marijuana fed pork becoming highly successful

Category: News | Posted on Fri, June, 21st 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-fed-pork-highSEATTLE, Washington (KING) – It’s a different kind of head shop found just down the stairs from the Pike Place market.
 
It’s the BB Ranch selling something that’s even better than bacon. It’s marijuana fed pork.
 
“The pig farmer has been feeding them marijuana for the last two and a half months of their life and they’ve been happy as hell,” said William Von Schneidau, owner of the butcher shop.
 
This is all thanks the voters of Washington who legalized marijuana in the last election. That’s when Von Schneidau saw the opportunity wasn’t just blowing smoke.
 
“And then all of a sudden marijuana, you know, became legal a few months ago and somehow, I don’t know how, I met the commercial growers and they needed to get rid of some of their stuff. So rather than going into the compost pile we said, ‘Lets try it out.’ So here we go,” said he said.
 
The pigs are raised in a farm about an hour outside of Seattle. In fact, these pigs are on the rock star diet. The mix contains drugs and alcohol, the booze coming by way of the spent grains from Woodinville’s Project V Vodka.
 
The pot pigs grow to be extra fat and really happy according to the farmer who wants to be anonymous.
 
Here’s the tough part of the story. The pigs love eating weed, and what gives me pleasure is BBQ pork.
 
So I brought some pot pork belly to my buddy Steve Freeman at Celtic Cowboy BBQ in Edmonds. And we decided to smoke it.
 
Steve rubbed the belly, which is basically the part that bacon comes from, with spices and tossed it into the smoker for about 45 minuets. He then seared it on a skillet.
 
Steve says the results are stunning.
