Montana's Medical Marijuana Industry Goes Down

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, May, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — If American society's tolerance for marijuana is now growing, then what happened in Montana illustrates just what can happen when the government decides things have gone too far.
 
Pot advocates were running caravans, helping hundreds of residents in a day get medical marijuana user cards. Some doctors who conducted cursory exams on scores of people were fined. As the number of users quickly grew, so did a retail industry that led some to dub the state "Big High Country."
 
Today, thousands of medical pot providers have gone out of business, and a health department survey showed that the number of registered users have fallen to less than a quarter of their 2011 numbers.
 
The drop was driven in part by a tougher 2011 law on medical marijuana use and distribution. But more than anything, marijuana advocates say, the demise of the once-booming medical pot industry was the result of the largest federal drug-trafficking investigation in the state's industry.
 
The three-year investigation by the U.S. attorney's office, the Drug Enforcement Administration and other federal agencies wrapped up last week when the last of 33 convicted defendants was sentenced. That allowed its architect, U.S. Attorney Michael Cotter, to speak publicly for the first time on the crackdown.
 
"For a long time, we were hearing complaints from local law enforcement and from citizens ... that they were tired of marijuana and they were tired of it next to schools, to churches, people smoking it openly on the streets," Cotter said in an interview with The Associated Press.
 
"It was just something that had to be done," he said. "And the result of doing it the way that we did, it was a strong statement that marijuana wasn't going to be tolerated in Montana."

Medicinal Marijuana May Help Ease Pets' Pain!

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, May, 11th 2013 by THCFinder
Although pets don't often show it - a lot of pets can and do feel pain.
 
Which was definitely the case for veterinarian Dr. Doug Kramer after his precious pet dog was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
 
Wanting to make sure the dog lived the rest of its life happy - Kramer decided to give the dog medical marijuana which is legal in the state of California.
 
And although people may frown upon using medical marijuana on a pet dog, PETA actually is for using marijuana upon one's own pets as long as it for medicinal purposes. It is not medicine to just blow smoke in your dog's face which is definitely not cool!
Kramer is hoping to develop a type of medical marijuana for animals that is totally safe to use.
 
Here's what he said:
“My goal is to have a pain medication somewhere between aspirin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs without knocking your dog out."
 
Here's hoping to his success!
 
Marijuana can be a medicine even if not everyone uses it as such!

For those of you who are into the Bay Area rap scene, you%u2019ve likely already smoked some of this off-the-charts weed after hearing some of the songs by San Francisco rapper and collective owner, Berner.

Marijuana treated as a lost and found item on Seattle buses

Category: Odd | Posted on Sat, May, 11th 2013 by THCFinder
Metro bus drivers have been given new instructions for lost marijuana: turn it into the lost and found.
 
In Nov. 2012, a statewide ballot initiative approved adults age 21 and older to have up to one ounce of usable marijuana.
 
Even before that, Metro would occasionally find marijuana left on buses – typically small amounts in backpacks or film containers, sometimes with a pipe. That was turned over to police, and amounts over 1 ounce still will be, Metro spokesman Jeff Switzer said Friday.
 
“People can’t just come to lost and found and say, ‘I lost some pot,’” he said. “They will need to provide a lot more information before we reconnect them with that lost and found item.”
 
Metro has roughly 200 bus routes, and riders trying to reclaim their missing weed will have to say specifically the route and time when they lost it. No one has tried to pick up pot from Metro’s lost and found yet.
 
In an average year, Metro has about 40,000 lost and found items, with the most common being black umbrellas. But they also come across cell phones and laptops often, and sometimes even the more bizarre: dentures, personal items, and prosthetic limbs.
