Lawmakers Call For Investigation Into DOJ's Continued Crackdown On Medical Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

Two congressmen behind a federal provision protecting state-legal medical marijuana operations are seeking an investigation into the Department of Justice's continued crackdown on medical marijuana patients and providers, saying the DOJ may be in violation of federal law.

"We request that you immediately investigate the Department's expenditure of funds to continue prosecuting these cases, which we believe are in direct violation of the prohibition on such expenditures established by Rohrabacher-Farr," reads the letter, addressed to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz from Reps. Sam Farr (D-Calif.) and Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.). 

Rohrabacher and Farr's amendment, which blocks the Justice Department from using funds to undermine state-legal medical marijuana programs, found support in Congress and ultimately made it into the final federal spending bill signed into law by President Barack Obama in December. As the marijuana provision is part of an annual funding bill that will expire, the lawmakers introduced an identical version again in June, which was reauthorized by the House of Representatives.

Nevada’s First Licensed Medical Marijuana Dispensary Opens Today

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, August, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

Nevada medical Marijuana dispensariesNevada has had a medical marijuana program in place for quite awhile. There have also been unlicensed medical marijuana dispensaries in Nevada for awhile too. But those dispensaries operated below the radar, and once they were ‘discovered’ they were usually closed down. That all changes today with the opening of Nevada’s first licensed medical marijuana dispensary. Per theReno Gazette-Journal:

Nevada’s very first medical marijuana dispensary, Silver State Relief, is set to open in Sparks this Friday.

Silver State Relief now possesses around 200 plants, brought in from all around Nevada, which they will use to grow future crops. Now that they have purchased the plants, they are not limited by how many they can grow in the future.

Because plants can take months to yield a crop, Swan said his dispensary’s initial offerings will be modest, with around 12-14 pounds of marijuana available on opening day. Patients are allowed to possess 2.5 ounces of marijuana per 14-day period, but given that the store will have a slim supply, the dispensary will be limiting purchases to a half-ounce per transaction.

NIDA Admits That Marijuana Has Medicinal Value

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

The United States government has surprisingly allowed one of its most prominent drug warriors to admit that, despite more than 40 years of pot propaganda, marijuana does actually possess medicinal qualities.

In a column published last week by the Huffington Post, Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, wrote that while many compounds of the cannabis plant are beginning to show evidence of a “range of uses in medicine,” cannabidiol, otherwise referred to as CBD, “appears to be a safe drug with no addictive side effects.” 

Dr. Volkow went on to say, “the preliminary data suggest that it may have therapeutic value for a number of medical conditions,” while THC’s primary purpose appears to be simply to get users high.

Although it is discouraging to see the cannabinoids THC and CBD essentially separated into categories of good and evil, the federal government’s latest admission is, ultimately, a giant leap forward in the realm of nationwide pot reform. Since the signing of the Controlled Substances Act in 1970, every single component of the cannabis plant has been considered a Schedule I dangerous drug with no medical value. This, of course, has stymied the scientific and medical community’s ability to research the herb for many decades, as well as prevented farmers across the nation from engaging in hemp production.
