Michigan medical marijuana panel to consider adding PTSD, autism, asthma, insomnia to law

LANSING, MI -- A reconstituted state panel on Tuesday is expected to consider petitions seeking to add autism, asthma, insomnia and post-traumatic stress disorder to a list of debilitating conditions suitable for treatment under Michigan's medical marijuana law.
Critics say chronic delays and mismanagement by the state has prevented earlier updates to the 2008 law -- changes they believe could have helped patients treat symptoms and ease pain.
The Michigan Medical Marihuana Act Review Panel, established under administrative rules in 2009, did not meet until 2012. Earlier this year, panel members voted to recommend adding Parkinson's disease and PTSD to a list of conditions that would allow an individual to qualify for a medical marijuana card.
But the panel was disbanded in late April -- and their recommendations denied -- because the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs determined it had not appointed members in accordance with the administrative rules.

Cannabis discovered growing in Newport council potted plants

A flower box in a public street in Wales has been found to have been growing weed among its flowers, sparking up an investigation by Newport Council to work out who planted them – and then harvested them before they could be removed by officials.
The BBC reports local businessman Dean Beddis spotted the illegal plants among begonias and petunias.
"I had never seen cannabis growing in the wild before so it was crazy to see it," Beddis told BBC.
"It's actually rather a beautiful plant and stood out wonderfully. But they have gone now. I don't know who took them."
Council officers are now scouring CCTV footage and getting the police involved.
While councillor Rhys Hutchings saw an amusing side.
"It's either kids or the Newport underworld community - I'm pretty sure it's not Alan Titchmarsh," he joked.
The Gwent Police admit they’ll struggle for a conviction now the plants are gone.
