Should medical marijuana be legal in Illinois?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, April, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
A swing in public attitudes about marijuana could lead to passage this year of an Illinois law allowing medical use of the drug, according to proponents.
 
A vote in the Illinois House is expected this week on House Bill 1, a bill that would create a four-year pilot program through which patients suffering certain ailments could use marijuana. If approved, it then would go to the Senate, which approved such a measure once before.
 
The bill's opponents include the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police. The group's director, John H. Kennedy, said officers are concerned about users driving under the influence and the amount of marijuana people would be allowed to possess.
 
Nineteen states have legalized the medical use of marijuana.

States That Legalized Medical Marijuana Saw Fewer Traffic Deaths, Study Says

Category: News | Posted on Sun, April, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
A new study has revealed a link between states with legalized medical marijuana and a reduction in traffic-related fatalities. The study was conducted by D. Mark Anderson, a Montana State University economics professor, and Daniel Rees, a professor at the University of Colorado Denver.
 
In looking at state-level data from sources such as the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, Anderson and Rees discovered that states that had legalized medical marijuana saw an average of a 9 percent decrease in traffic deaths.
 
"We were pretty surprised that they went down," Rees told the Denver Post.
 
In an attempt to explain the results, Rees said that the passage of medical-marijuana laws likely resulted in young people consuming less alcohol in favor of using marijuana.
 
"The result that comes through again and again and again is [that] young adults ... drink less when marijuana is legalized and traffic fatalities go down," Rees told the Post.

Human Marijuana Trials Moving Forward To Determine Medical Benefits

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, April, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
Thousands of medical marijuana patients in the United States rely on the drug to alleviate a multitude of symptoms from cachexia to nerve pain; nevertheless, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) still considers it a Schedule I controlled substance that has no accepted medical use.
 
Despite this law-enforcement-agency-approved “analysis,” doctors are conducting their own research. In Israel, the Meir Medical Center is recruiting Crohn’s Disease sufferers for a study on the ability of marijuana to treat the inflammatory bowel disease, which affects 400,000-600,000 North Americans.
 
In San Francisco, for more than five years, doctors at California Pacific Medical Center have been studying the effects of the marijuana compound cannabidiol (CBD) on metastatic cancer cells (i.e., very aggressive tumor cells).  In their recently published large-scale animal trial, brain scans revealed the disruption of tumor cells after CBD was used to switch off a specific gene regulator.
