9 of 10 Docs Unprepared to Prescribe Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, September, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

Although it's becoming more commonplace, medical marijuana is rarely discussed in U.S. medical schools, a new study shows.

"Medical education needs to catch up to marijuana legislation," said senior author Dr. Laura Jean Bierut, a professor of psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

"Physicians in training need to know the benefits and drawbacks associated with medical marijuana so they know when or if, and to whom, to prescribe the drug," she explained in a school news release.

Marijuana is now legal -- at least for medical purposes -- in more than half the states in the country, the researchers said.

Sri Lanka Says It Can Grow Better Weed Than the U.S.

Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 24th 2017 by THCFinder

Thanks to prohibition laws, the U.S. is a major buyer in the overseas trade in cannabis—especially hemp. Now, Sri Lanka has announced plans to begin producing high-quality medical cannabis that the country hopes to export to the U.S.

SRI LANKA PLANS TO ENTER THE GLOBAL CANNABIS MARKET

The U.S. is a key player in the global cannabis market. For example, many Chinese hemp farmers would be looking for other opportunities if it weren’t so hard to produce cannabis products here in the U.S.

This is what happens when farmers are prohibited from cultivating a crop that textile-makers, soap-makers and other legal enterprises need. And this is why the U.S. is the main destination for much of the industrial hemp grown in China.

Industrial hemp and medical or recreational marijuana are the same species of plant. They’re all classified as cannabis sativa. The distinction between the two, according to the 2014 Farm Bill approved by Congress, is THC content.

New Attempts to Outlaw Home Grows Are Stupid and Counterproductive

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

One of marijuana legalization’s original promises was the right to do it all yourself.

This cuts both ways. An integral part of the concept of “cannabis freedom” is the freedom to cultivate cannabis in your home. But at the same time, one of the very first excuses floated by authorities for opposing reasonable and sensible accommodations, like legal cannabis dispensaries, was that patients had the ability to cultivate a handful of plants at home.

This, they argued, meant that regulated retail sales were not necessary, which in turn opened the door for the idea that raiding dispensaries was a good use of time and resources.

This line of reasoning continues: Just because the voters approved medical marijuana for sick people doesn’t mean the voters approved a way for them to get any of it. Of course, this logic unravels at the slightest critical tug.
