Czech president signs law to approve use of marijuana for medical treatment
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, February, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
Czech President Vaclav Klaus has signed into law legislation that makes it legal in the Czech Republic to use marijuana for medical treatment.
Klaus gave his approval on Friday, after the law had been approved by both houses of Parliament.
It allows marijuana to be imported and later grown locally by registered firms licensed for such activity, which is currently illegal.
Patients will need a prescription from a doctor to get the drug at pharmacies, and treatment will not be covered by health insurance. Patients wouldn't be allowed to grow marijuana at home.
Medical marijuana use is legal in a number of European countries and parts of the United States. The drug is commonly used to relieve conditions such as chronic pain and cancer.

Judge says no to HighTimes Medical Cannabis Cup convention
Category: Events | Posted on Fri, February, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge on Thursday granted a temporary restraining order to block a two-day medicinal marijuana convention from operating this weekend in Glendale.
Two days before the scheduled Medical Cannabis Cup — a trade show organized by High Times magazine that was expected to draw up to 3,000 people each day — was set to open at the sound and film production studio in the 1200 block of South Glendale Avenue, officials said event organizers still hadn't pulled permits to host the event.
City Atty. Michael Garcia said the city was pleased with the judge's decision to grant the order.
“Not only would the event have violated multiple code provisions, but we were also concerned that the facility could not handle an event of this magnitude,” he said. “The potential that this event could have had significant public safety and traffic impacts on the surrounding neighborhood was very real.”
Organizers initially tried to put on the event at the Los Angeles Center Studios in the 1200 block of West 5th Street, where they held it last year, officials said. But they were unable to acquire a “one-night dance permit” and were forced to abandon their plans, according to a Los Angeles County Court complaint for the injunction.
Organizers turned their sights to Glendale, and decided to host the event at Glendale Studios.
City attorneys alleged in their complaint that the only explanation for why organizers did not apply for permits is that they wanted to “fly under the radar” and go ahead with the event “at all costs, whether it was legal or not.”
The two-day convention was to showcase local dispensaries, hydroponic businesses, marijuana paraphernalia and clothing companies.
Rappers The Game and Redman were scheduled to perform Saturday, which raised issues with city officials because they said the venue was not zoned for concerts, only for broadcasts and recording.
