Puff puff, pass it: 52% of adults in the US want to legalize marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, June, 30th 2013 by THCFinder

It looks as if the supporters of marijuana legalization aren't just stoner college kids and your one uncle who lives in an Airstream. A historic 52 percent of adults in the U.S., according to a survey by the Pew Research Center, are in favor of legalizing marijuana, up 11 points since 2010.

Sixty percent think the feds have no business enforcing laws in the 18 states that have legalized marijuana use for medical purposes. Seventy-two percent of adults think the cost of pursuing and imprisoning marijuana users is more than it's worth, and the cops enforcing those laws agree. According to Rolling Stone, many officers are sick of busting teens for marijuana possession when they could be doing "real police work."

PTSD added to list of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana treatment

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, June, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
ptsd-issuesAUGUSTA, Maine — A bill adding post-traumatic stress disorder as a qualifying condition for the prescription of medical marijuana quietly became law on Wednesday without Gov. Paul LePage’s signature.
 
The bill, sponsored by Rep. Elizabeth Dickerson, D-Rockland, amends the Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Act to add post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), inflammatory bowel disease and other illnesses to the list of conditions for which a physician may prescribe medical marijuana.
 
The new law takes effect late September.
 
Dickerson said Friday that she sponsored the bill at the request of a number of veterans, one of whom told her he would rather use medical marijuana than something like Prozac.
 
Paul McCarrier, legislative liaison for Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine, said the change will help veterans and patients in Maine access “their medicine of choice” and will help physicians and others gather data about how medical marijuana can help veterans with PTSD.
 
The original bill received “quite a bit of pushback” from the Maine Medical Association, McCarrier said, because it contained language that would have added treatment of opioid or other pharmaceutical dependence, as well as “any other medical condition or its treatment as determined by a physician.”
 
Gordon Smith of the Maine Medical Association said that language was just one aspect of the bill that made many MMA member physicians uncomfortable.
 
“We had quite a fight with a few legislators who were very bothered by [our opposition] and asked, ‘Don’t we trust the doctors?’” Smith said. “I said, ‘No, not all 4,000 of them, no. We really feel there would be a weak link that would be utilized to just support the recreational use of marijuana.”

Taco Bell, Del Taco Unahppy About Names Being Used in Marijuana Expo Ad

Category: News | Posted on Sun, June, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
kushexpo-problemsDespite the fact that potheads love Taco Bell, Taco Bell is not cool with being associated with weed in advertisements. Neither a Taco Bell nor a Del Taco in Orange County, Calif. want their names associated with a marijuana expo set for next week in Anaheim. The Kush Expo will blow through the Anaheim Convention Center on Jul. 6 and Jul. 7, and both taco chains are mentioned in promos. They aren't having it.
 
Del Taco spokeswoman Barbara Caruso said "It's unacceptable for companies to use our logo without permission and they didn't have permission." Rob Poetsch, spokesman for Taco Bell, voiced similar frustrations. "We have a longstanding policy that prohibits other businesses from using our trademarks, and we did not give them permission to do this."
 
Poetsch added that Taco Bell was "in the process of contacting them to take down our trademarks from their website, but it appears that they have already taken them down." The Kush Expo is advertised as "the world's biggest medical marijuana mega show," with prizes, giveaways and even a "Hot Kush Girl" contest. That sounds like a stoner's paradise, but Taco Bell and Del Taco will have no official affiliation.
