Medical marijuana used for childs epilepsy

3yearold-given-medical-cannabisMARTINSBURG - Even though she's far from home, there's no mistaking the determination in Tara White's voice.
She talks via cellphone about how the use of medical marijuana could help her chronically ill, nearly 3-year-old son Brandon, who suffers from a rare type of epilepsy, why it means so much to his quality of life, and how much she's willing to do to help him feel better.
Local residents, the mother-son duo have been in Denver, Colo., for a month and have just achieved their medical marijuana goal, White said, adding that the final doctor's recommendation was given Wednesday.
Since being approved, the youngster - who will celebrate his third birthday Sept. 18 - received a brownish liquid that will hopefully meet his medical needs. It still contains the compound in marijuana - cannabiodiol (CBD) - that has positive medical effects, but lower levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (TCH) which is associated with the being "stoned," she said, adding that there's also some evidence that CBD can help counter the effects of TCH.
Although excited, White was also nervous about getting her son started on the medicine. She said the dosage will gradually increase as doctors evaluate his reaction - and, hopefully, progress.

Will Pennsylvania legalize marijuana?

pa-mmj-moving-forwardMillersville University students, in a recent survey, estimated that a whopping 93 percent of their college peers smoke marijuana.
An on-campus drug-abuse counselor, however, believes the real number is closer to the national statistics, which indicate that one-quarter of students use pot.
Counselor John Baltzer does believe the students' "false consensus" signifies a growing acceptance here of marijuana use that stretches beyond college campuses.
"In my time, (society) wouldn't serve, hire or respect 'long-haired, dope-smoking hippies,' " Baltzer said. "Now, weed use is accepted in a great deal of our society.
"Attitudes about pot and its use have changed a great deal over the last five years or so."
And locals can expect the pendulum to swing even further in that direction, Baltzer predicted.
"Even in a state like Pennsylvania," he said.
Feds pull back on enforcement
A recent memo from the U.S. Department of Justice is being called, by pot advocates, a major victory. In the memo, the DOJ outlines a limited pullback on federal enforcement of marijuana laws, saying it will not interfere with new state laws in Colorado and Washington that permit recreational use.
That could affect an estimated 23 other states that have reformed pot laws and several others that are considering doing so. Pennsylvania falls into the latter category, with a pair of current senate bills introduced in April by state Sen. Daylin Leach, a Democrat who represents parts of Montgomery and Delaware counties.
Senate Bill 528, or the "Regulate Marijuana Act," and Senate Bill 770, which would permit medicinal use, have yet to come up for votes.
And the federal memo won't automatically change that, as some pot advocates are expecting. Local lawmakers and law-enforcement officials certainly aren't convinced.
"I am not aware of — nor would I support — any serious efforts to overturn Pennsylvania's drug laws," state Sen. Lloyd Smucker, a West Lampeter Republican, said Wednesday.

Alaskans may get chance to 'just say yes' on marijuana ballot measure

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, September, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
For more than 30 years, Alaska's libertarian streak made it the only state in which it was legal, under some circumstances, to smoke marijuana just for the fun of it.
alaskans-mmj-voteThen along came voters in Colorado and Washington state. Last year, both states passed initiatives legalizing pot and setting up rules for production, sales and taxation.
Now backers of a similar initiative here say they are close to giving Alaskans the same opportunity to just say yes. They're nearly halfway to reaching their goal of getting 45,000 signatures by Dec. 1, about 15,000 more than the number needed to put the measure on the 2014 primary election ballot, according to Timothy Hinterberger, the measure's main sponsor.
The initiative would add a new seven-page chapter to Alaska's statute books, making it legal for adults at the age at which they may buy beer to also possess up to an ounce of pot anywhere, except where a property owner banned it. It would set up a state regulatory body to oversee cannabis farms, dealers and advertising, and ensure that products don't end up with juveniles or on the black market. The initiative would impose a $50-an-ounce excise tax that would be collected between the greenhouse and the store or factory.
Employers would still be able to ban smoking or possession at work and prevent employees from being high on the job. Driving under the influence would still be illegal, and local governments could outlaw pot growing and sales -- but not possession -- by local option. Police officers would have to stop their current practice of seizing small amounts of marijuana when they encounter it. The measure would authorize retail pot shops but not dope dens, parlors or bars.
