Marijuana may help heal broken bones

Category: News | Posted on Sat, July, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

Israeli researchers have discovered that cannabis can be effectively used in healing broken bones and maybe other skeletal illnesses.

Scientists from the Tel Aviv University revealed that cannabis has a component which enhances the healing process of fractured bones. The study was published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research.

A curative component, called cannabidiol (CBD), sped up healing processes in the broken leg bones of trial rats with mid-femoral fractures. CBD is non-psychotropic and is also effective when isolated from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive component of cannabis.

 

“While there is still a lot of work to be done to develop appropriate therapies, it is clear that it is possible to detach a clinical therapy objective from the psychoactivity of cannabis. CBD, the principal agent in our study, is primarily anti-inflammatory and has no psychoactivity,” said Dr. Yankel Gabet of Tel Aviv’s Bone Research Laboratory, as cited by the Tel Aviv university website.
To illustrate these findings, scientists tested two different groups of rats - one was treated with both CBD and THC while the other one only with CBD.

“We found CBD alone to be sufficiently effective in enhancing fracture healing,” Gabet explained.

Ohio marijuana proposal in danger of falling short

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, July, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

CINCINNATI — The marijuana legalization effort in Ohio is in danger because it does not have enough signatures yet to put a measure on the Nov. 3 ballot.

“We’re coming in lower than we were expecting,” said Ian James, executive director of ResponsibleOhio, the private investor group that wants to legalize marijuana this year.

Ohio’s secretary of state is expected to announce as early as Monday whether ResponsibleOhio gathered enough valid signatures of registered Ohio voters to get the measure before voters in 2015. ResponsibleOhio needs 305,591 signatures to qualify. On June 30, the group turned in 695,273 signatures with the goal of ensuring it would have the right number, 50%, to qualify.

In four southwest Ohio counties, final counts show the petition campaign had a majority of valid signatures only in Warren County, at 53%. Hamilton County had a 33.74% validity rate. Butler and Clermont counties came in at 41%.

If the secretary of state finds that ResponsibleOhio did not get to 305,591, the group has 10 calendar days to send out its army of signature gatherers in hopes of hitting the target.

Washington Compliance Checks: 19 Of 157 Recreational Marijuana Stores Sell To Minors

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

selling marijuana to minorsIn May I wrote an article talking about how recreational marijuana stores that sell to minors hurt the entire industry, and the movement as a whole. The article came after four stores in Washington sold recreational marijuana to minors during compliance checks. Sadly, the last round of compliance checks in Washington resulted in significantly more failures. Every instance is a black eye on the industry and the movement. Below is more information, via a Washington State Liquor Control Board e-mail:

In the first complete round of compliance checks of retail marijuana retail stores, 19 Washington recreational retail marijuana businesses sold marijuana to an underage investigative aide. Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) enforcement officers working with underage investigative aides, checked each retail marijuana business for sales of marijuana to minors. The checks essentially represent an 88 percent no-sales-to-minors compliance rate.

“Our goal is 100 percent compliance,” said WSLB Board Chair Jane Rushford. “While perfect compliance is always a challenging goal, it is clearly in everyone’s interest that our licensees be vigilant about preventing underage sales.”

The 19 businesses will be cited for selling marijuana to minors. The individuals who sold the marijuana will be referred to their respective prosecuting attorney’s office for potential criminal prosecution.
