Michigan Legislators Propose Pharmacy Marijuana Sales
Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
LANSING (AP) - Five years after Michigan voters legalized marijuana use for medical purposes, lawmakers say it’s time the drug is brought into the fold of the health care industry so patients can buy it at their corner pharmacy.
A bill approved last week by a Senate committee would pave the way for the production and sale of “pharmaceutical-grade” cannabis. The measure essentially would create a second medical pot system in the state, one that proponents say would not interfere with the existing law under which patients can grow their own pot or obtain it from caregivers.
“Marijuana, if it’s to be medical marijuana, should be held to the standard of medical safety, dosage predictability,” said Sen. Roger Kahn, a Saginaw Township Republican and cardiologist. “Our medical marijuana (law) does neither of those. Yet it uses the word the word `medical’ predominantly or prominently in its claims.”
Kahh is sponsoring legislation, now pending on the Senate floor, to move marijuana from a Schedule 1 drug in the same category as heroin and other drugs with no accepted medical use to a Schedule 2 drug like cocaine and morphine that are addictive but also used for medicinal purposes. The reclassification could not occur without federal approval.
Such a reclassification would lay the groundwork for pharmacies to dispense marijuana. The legislation would allow doctors to recommend that patients be issued “enhanced” pharmaceutical-grade cannabis cards differing from those now carried by 129,000 residents.
To get a card, the patient could not have been convicted of a drug offense, would have to surrender his or her ID card issued under the existing law and could not be under 18 years old. Suppliers and participating pharmacies would undergo annual inspections.

Cannabis Milk Recipe
Category: Recipes | Posted on Mon, November, 11th 2013 by THCFinder
Hey, it's an easy way to get stoned while eating cereal, Mac & Cheese, or maybe you're just keeping your bones strong. Whatever the case may be, milk can be better by adding a little bit of bud to it. It's suggested that you use chocolate syrup if you drink it straight though. It'll mask the cannabis taste if you're just drinking it straight.
What You'll Need;
1 cup of milk
1/8 chopped cannabis
This is an extremely easy recipe for people to make. Be sure that you have your handy coffee grinder ready because you need to get the cannabis ground as finely as possible. Put the milk in a pan and heat it up until it is simmering. When it begins to bubble slightly, lower the heat and slowly stir in the cannabis. Allow this mixture to simmer on the stove for about an hour Remember to stir it and be careful because milk can overflow a pot if there's too much heat.
After an hour has passed, strain the milk through cheese cloth after allowing it to cool. Make sure it's strained well. No one likes cannabis sediment in their milk, right? After you strain it, put it in an airtight container in the fridge. Remember the date that your milk expires too. Wasting cannabis milk is no good!
Will Tennessee Legalize Hemp?
Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, November, 11th 2013 by THCFinder
Tennessee might join other states that have removed hemp prohibition at the state level, at least that’s what one Tennessee Senator wants to see happen. Tennessee Senator Frank Niceley, a Republican from Strawberry Fields, says he is drafting a bill that legalize hemp production in Kentucky. Hemp is a crop that farmers nationwide would love to grow, especially in Tennessee. Hemp can be used to make plastics, insulation, paper, foods, clothes, and many, many other things.
The biggest hurdle facing hemp legalization in Tennessee is the fact that politicians don’t realize that hemp is not the same as marijuana.
“Their biggest fear is that, if they support hemp, people will think they support marijuana,” Niceley said, according to The Tennessean. “That’s a cousin of hemp, but cornbread is a cousin of moonshine.”
Hemp prohibition provides no benefit to anyone. A person can’t get high from hemp, so any money that is spent enforcing hemp prohibition is wasted. And even if one farmer can make one dollar from hemp production, considering it doesn’t harm anyone, they should be allowed to do so. To say otherwise would be bad public policy…Que the quote from reefer madness supporter Jon Lundberg, a Tennessee Representative from Bristol:
“On occasion, Sen. Niceley does things for political reasons more than for good policy,” Lundberg said, according to The Tennessean. Mr. Lundberg, can you please explain how supporting farmers who want to grow hemp is not ‘good policy?’ It’s pretty obvious who is doing things for political reasons.
