Medical Marijuana Patients Protest AG Holders UC Berkeley Speech

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
BERKELEY, CA — As U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder delivered a commencement speech Friday for UC Berkeley law school graduates, a plane flew overhead with a banner that read “Holder: End Rx Cannabis War. #Peace4Patients,” in protest against recent actions by the Justice Department (DOJ) in the Bay Area.
 
Outside the Hearst Greek Theater, where Holder gave his speech, medical marijuana advocates also handed out fake DOJ recruitment flyers, detailing how the Obama Administration is engaging in harmful tactics that are adversely affecting the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients in California.
 
“Patients will not stand idly by while Attorney General Holder’s Justice Department continues to attack our community and endanger the lives of Berkeley residents” said Caren Woodson, one of the leafletters outside the ceremony. “We’re here today to call attention to the misguided policies of the Obama Administration and to ensure that his ongoing campaign against medical marijuana is stopped in its tracks.” The protest today was organized by Americans for Safe Access and California NORML.
 
Holder’s speech comes only days after his Justice Department served an asset forfeiture lawsuit on the landlord of Berkeley Patients Group, one of the city’s oldest and most-respected medical marijuana dispensaries.
 
The lawsuit, which was filed on May 2nd, was strongly denounced at a press conference Wednesday by Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates and four City Council members.

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!
