Study Finds Marijuana Decreases Pediatric Seizures and Treats Chemo-Induced Nausea

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, October, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

A new study by the Massachusetts General Hospital has found that medical marijuana is an effective treatment for children who suffer from seizures or going through cancer related chemotherapy. The study was published Monday by the American Academy of Pediatrics Journal.

The researchers conducted 11 studies of medical marijuana on epilepsy and 6 on chemotherapy. The findings showed that cannabidiol (CBD) from the cannabis plant decreased seizures in young patients. Dr. Shane Shucheng Wong and Dr. Timothy Wilens, both psychiatrists at Massachusetts General Hospital, concluded that medical marijuana has two therapeutic uses for pediatrics; seizure reduction and nausea relief from chemotherapy, according to the Science Daily. The doctors also found that medical marijuana worked better on chemotherapy patients than anti-nausea drugs.

Jeff Sessions Testified About Medical Marijuana Research

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

On Wednesday, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified about medical marijuana research to a Senate Judiciary committee. He was speaking during an oversight hearing on the Justice Department on Capitol Hill in Washington. Sessions revealed his desire to limit the expansion of the MEDS Act, which would allow for more research on medical marijuana.

The MEDS Act

The MEDS Act was introduced by Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), who received most of his campaign funding from pharmaceutical companies. Since 2013, he’s taken $583,009 from pharmaceutical and health companies.

Hatch and Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA) were at the forefront of passing a bill that made it harder for the DEA to prevent the distribution of suspicious opioids.

Arizona Judge Rules Medical Cannabis Extracts Are Illegal

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 26th 2017 by THCFinder

We’ve gotten reports that an Arizona judge has ruled that medical cannabis extracts are illegal. We have also just learned that in Arizona, there is a legal difference between marijuana and cannabis. Even though they are literally the same plant.

Wait, what?

Cannabis vs. Marijuana

According to Arizona state law, there is a difference between marijuana and cannabis.

In 2010, when Arizona residents voted in favor of instating a medical marijuana program, the term “marijuana” referred to the medicine in flower form “and any mixture or preparation thereof.” Lawmakers wrote the definition of “cannabis,” however, in the criminal code before 1960.

Arizona law views cannabis as a narcotic derived from marijuana.
