Colorado Lawmakers Unanimously Approve Hemp Legalization
Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
Senate Bill 241, a measure which would enable the state’s Department of Agriculture to license farmers to cultivate hemp beginning this year, has passed out of the House Agriculture, Livestock & Natural Resources Committee, as well as the House Appropriations Committee, both unanimously. In addition, the measure was approved through its 2nd reading in the full House of Representatives. The bill now awaits one more House vote, where its expected passage will send it to the governor for final approval, given that it’s already passed the Senate with a 34-1 vote.
Under the proposal farmers would have the option of applying for a 10-acre plot in order to study the viability of various hemp varieties, or they could apply for a larger, full-scale hemp farm - one that wouldn’t be limited by the number of plants, but rather by the THC content in said plants.

Pot for pets? Vet offers unorthodox marijuana treatment for pups in pain

With medical marijuana legalized in California and several other states, one veterinarian is asking why a puff can't help ailing pooches.
Dr. Doug Kramer, who runs the Vet Guru animal center in Chatsworth, outside Los Angeles, believes that the active ingredient in pot, THC, could be the key to helping Fido feel better.
He said that was the case in treating his own dog, Nikita, saying the marijuana regimen increased her "quality of life."
Speaking with Vice magazine last month, Kramer said that a friend had first introduced the idea to him, saying that she used marijuana on her dog when other traditional medications were not working.
When his own Husky, Nikita, was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Dr. Kramer knew he had nothing to lose in the battle to help his pet deal with the pain. "When it became clear that she was nearing the end, that's when she had nothing to lose, as long as it didn't hurt her," he told the magazine.
According to Dogster.com, Kramer is the first vet in the country to offer pot as a treatment for canine pain.
Maryland has become the latest state to legalize the drug for medicinal use, the 19th state to have some law on the matter.
