Cannabis oil: Raided for helping their son

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
raided-for-helping-son-with-cannabis-oilCassie Batten and Rhett Wallace's home was raided just weeks after revealing on Sunday Night they treated their severely epileptic son with cannabis oil.
 
The Epping Sex Offences and Child Abuse Investigation team raided the family's Mernda home and seized all of the three-year-old's cannabis oil tincture, which he began receiving under doctor's supervision.
 
Cooper was born healthy, but contracted meningitis which left him suffering from hundreds of life-threatening seizures a day.
 
The family turned to the oil after Cooper did not respond to epilepsy medications and soon his seizures went from hundreds a day to two or three.
 
"Cooper uses his vision a lot more now than he ever has, he is more alert about his surroundings he's not crawling yet but he's close to it, he gets up on all fours"
 
"Without the cannabis oil we wouldn’t have our son today. We would be visiting him in a cemetery."
 
His father says without the cannabis oil he will deteriorate quickly.
 
"He will start having daily seizures anywhere from 30-40 a day and that will just increase as days go by," Rhett told Sunday Night.
 
Cassie and Rhett could face charges of possessing a drug of dependence and introducing a drug of dependence into the body of another.
 
They also fear they could have their son taken away.
 
The family was contacted by the Department of Human Services after the raid, requesting an urgent meeting to evaluate Cooper's care.
 
Heavily pregnant, Cassie was admitted to hospital with high blood pressure and acute stress.
 
"Child protection called to notify us they had received a report and demanded a meeting urgently," Cassie said.
 
They continued to call her on her mobile while she was in hospital.
 
The Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Ken Lay said the police were required to act on a complaint they had received.
 
"This isn’t easy, there is the balance to consider of a child and an illegal substance. When police are given information we have to act on it," he said.
 
Police did not seek any medical advice before removing Cooper's medicine and Mr Lay said they were unaware he had been under medical supervision while receiving the treatment.
 
"Other families have spoken out and haven’t had this happen. So we just feel a bit targeted you know," Cassie said.
 
Rhett told Sunday Night he didn’t regret speaking out about using cannabis oil.
 
"It needs to be in the public eye, it needs to be investigated more, tests, more formal tests need to be done, other than what’s been done in the states, and other countries."

Man In Malaysia Sentenced To Death For Selling Marijuana

man-in-malaysia-sentenced-to-death-for-selling-marijuana
In one of the most disgusting stories I’ve ever read, it appears that a 37 year old Nigerian man has been sentenced to death for selling marijuana in Malaysia. Not a fine. Not jail. Death. This man will face the death penalty for selling a substance that has never killed anyone in the history of mankind. Per New Straits Times:
 
A Nigerian college student gets death for trafficking 26.5kg of cannabis four years ago. High Court judge Datin Amelia Tee Hong Geok Abdullah today sentenced Uchechukwu Nelson Ohaechesi, 37, to be hanged for trafficking the drugs at the side of an overhead bridge stairwell at the Kajang-bound Taman Connought highway, Cheras here, around 7.45pm on Oct 17, 2010. Amelia ruled that Uchechukwu failed to raise reasonable doubt in the prosecution’s case and that his defense amounted to “an afterthought, pure fabrication and untrue”.
 
People are legally selling marijuana right now in Washington State and Colorado, and it has led to virtually no issues. Yet, in Malaysia, the court determined that selling marijuana was such a heinous act that it warrants the death penalty. This makes my heart heavy in a way that I don’t think I can ever accurately capture in words. No one should be penalized for marijuana, let alone lose their life by being hung from a noose.
 
Some people might brush this off and think of it as an example of a country with ultra harsh laws, and that it’s far removed from what is going on in the United States. To these people I would offer up this fact – a man is serving a life sentence in Missouri right now for marijuana-only offenses. Jeff Mizanskey hasn’t received the death penalty in Missouri, but he will never be let out of jail according to his sentence. His life has been taken from him, and his friends and family will never get to spend quality time with him, solely because he was arrested for marijuana.

Illinois Legalizes Medical Marijuana For Children With Seizures

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, July, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
illinois-legalizes-mmj-for-children-with-seizuresJuly 20 (Reuters) - Illinois children and adults with epilepsy will soon be allowed to use marijuana to ease their symptoms under a law signed on Sunday by Democratic Governor Pat Quinn, the latest in a series of measures loosening restrictions on cannabis by U.S. states.
 
The move to add epilepsy and other seizure disorders to the list of conditions legal to treat with marijuana or its extracts comes as numerous states have made medical use of the drug legal. Two states, Colorado and Washington, have legalized its recreational use.
 
"This new law will help alleviate the suffering of many adults and children across the state," Quinn said in statement. "Epilepsy is a debilitating condition, and this much-needed relief will help to reduce some of its symptoms for those who endure seizures."
 
The Illinois law, which takes effect in January, would allow children who experience seizures to be treated with non-smokable forms of cannabis, as long as they have permission from a parent.
 
"I have a 14-year-old constituent by the name of Hugh who lives with epilepsy," said Republican state lawmaker Jim Durkin, who co-sponsored the new law. "His parents, Bob and Kelly, want to provide their son with as much relief as possible. Unfortunately, traditional medications and methods have not worked."
 
The state is putting the final touches on a broader medical marijuana plan, a tightly regulated program whose regulations were finalized just last week.
 
Residents will be allowed to apply for permission to use the drug to treat medical conditions in September, and the full program is expected to be up and running early next year, Quinn spokeswoman Katie Hickey said on Sunday.
