Iowa Senate Subcommittee Approves Medical Marijuana Bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, March, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
DES MOINES, IA – A bill that would legalize the medical use of marijuana in Iowa was approved by a Senate subcommittee Monday, but is unlikely to advance further this year.
Senator Joe Bolkcom, D-Iowa City, said that his bill, Senate File 79, lacks support in the full Human Resources Committee, where the bill has been assigned.
The bill was approved by a three person subcommittee on Monday following testimony from citizens suffering from multiple sclerosis and post-traumatic stress disorder,  who told the subcommittee that marijuana was a better alternative to synthetic prescription drugs.
Sen. Bolkom’s bill would exempt patients in Iowa suffering from cancer, HIV/AIDS, ALS, severe pain and nausea, and other ailments from arrest and prosecution for using marijuana under their physicians’ recommendations.
Patients or their caregivers would be able to grow their medicine or they could obtain it from a nonprofit dispensary.
Republican subcommittee member Sen. Joni Ernst opposed the bill, saying it would be difficult to ensure dispensaries wouldn’t sell marijuana to people without a recommendation.

Colorado veteran faces jail after using marijuana to treat PTSD

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
After returning from combat duty with post-traumatic stress disorder, a former US Navy Corpsman in Colorado now faces prison for using marijuana to cope. A court said it would violate his probation after a string of run-ins with the law.
Jeremy Usher uses marijuana medicinally to deal with insomnia, anxiety, depression, flashbacks and a speech impediment developed as a result of the disorder, the Greeley Tribune of Greeley, Colorado reports.
Colorado is one of two US states where residents can legally possess marijuana, the other being Washington.
But as Usher, 31, has been convicted three times of driving drunk, his use of marijuana is a probation violation, which means he could end up in jail as a result.
Usher served in both Iraq and Afghanistan, returning home in 2003, after being shot in the head while working as a medic. That injury caused brain damage that led to many of the symptoms he exhibits.

Former DEA Heads: Nullify Colorado, Washington Marijuana Laws

Category: News | Posted on Tue, March, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
CHICAGO — Eight former Drug Enforcement Administration chiefs said Tuesday that the federal government needs to act now or it might lose the chance to nullify Colorado and Washington's laws legalizing recreational marijuana use.
The statement came on the same day a United Nations-based drug agency urged the U. S. government to challenge those laws, saying they violate international drug treaties.
The onetime DEA heads issued joint statements saying the Obama administration has reacted too slowly and should immediately sue to force the states to rescind the legislation.
One of the former DEA administrators, Peter Bensinger, told The Associated Press the day before that the more time that goes by, the harder it'll be to stop the two states. Marijuana is illegal under federal law.
Bensinger, who lives in the Chicago area, said the government must immediately sue the states or risk creating "a domino effect" in which other states follow suit.
"My fear is that the Justice Department will do what they are doing now: do nothing and say nothing," said Bensinger. "If they don't act now, these laws will be fully implemented in a matter of months."
