New Hampshire is about to go live with their Medical Marijuana approval

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
newhampshire-medical-marijuana-program(Reuters) - New Hampshire is set to become the final state in New England to allow medical marijuana after negotiators from the Republican-controlled Senate and Democratic-controlled House agreed Tuesday on a bill backed by Governor Maggie Hassan.
 
The law would allow up to four marijuana dispensaries to open as soon as 2015. Patients with cancer, HIV, glaucoma and other diseases would be eligible to purchase the drug with state-issued identity cards from a physician or nurse practitioner certifying that they need it to soothe pain.
 
"Allowing doctors to provide relief to patients through the use of appropriately regulated and dispensed medical marijuana is the compassionate and right policy for the State of New Hampshire," Hassan, a Democrat, said in a statement.
 
The compromise "addresses the concerns that I have heard and expressed throughout this session, and provides the level of regulation needed for the use of medical marijuana," she added.
 
Both legislative bodies must vote on the compromise language in the coming weeks, though that is seen as a formality given Hassan's support.
 
A provision in a version of the bill passed by the New Hampshire House that would have allowed patients to cultivate their own marijuana was stripped from the compromise bill, said Matt Simon, a New Hampshire-based legislative analyst for the Marijuana Policy Project, which supported the bill.
 
The compromise bill also bars the use of medical marijuana for treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder, and limits most caregivers - who can get marijuana prescriptions filled on a patient's behalf - to treating five medical marijuana patients at any one time.
 
"It's very restrictive in limiting access to only four points of distribution," said Simon. "We may find that's not sufficient access, but it's at least a start"

Miley Cyrus says Alcohol is more Dangerous than Marijuana

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Wed, June, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
miley-cyrus-smoking-weedA few years ago, Miley Cyrus learned firsthand the perils of unguarded moments in the digital age when video surfaced of her using a bong, supposedly to smoke a legal substance called salvia -- an incident she later spoofed on "Saturday Night Live." While the pop singer doesn't exactly cop to smoking pot in a new interview with Rolling Stone's Rob Tannenbaum, she doesn't deny it, either.
 
"I did a song with Snoop Dogg called 'Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,' so people can put it together for themselves," Cyrus says. "I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana -- people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don't care. I've seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I've never seen that happen with weed."
 
Marijuana users tend to be more laid-back, Cyrus observes, noting, "As long as it isn't illegal, there are far more dangerous things. And it's legal in the state of California. So I'm happy to live in California, a place where you can be whoever you want to be."

Eric Holder Urged to leave states with recreational Marijuana alone

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
eric-holder-mmjSeven congressional Democrats from Washington have asked Attorney General Eric Holder for assurance the Justice Department won't punish those who sell and smoke marijuana under the state's new recreational pot law.
 
Last November, the voters in the Evergreen State approved legislation that legalizes possession of small amounts of marijuana by adults. But it is still illegal under the federal Controlled Substances Act.
 
In a letter released Tuesday, Sens. Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray, and Reps. Adam Smith, Jim McDermott, Suzan DelBene, Denny Heck, and Derek Kilmer, asked Holder to assure marijuana users and sellers that they won't be prosecuted, The Seattle Times reports. 
 
"We hope that you will exercise your significant discretionary authority by choosing not to . . . prosecute our residents and state employees acting in compliance with these laws," the letter states. 
 
Marijuana could be sold in stores in Washington as early as next year and will be supervised under the auspices of the state's Liquor Control Board.
 
The drug will be taxed with revenues going towards healthcare and programs for the prevention of substance abuse.
