Missouri’s Senate vote unanimously to approve House Bill 2238 Thursday, sending the measure to the governor. The proposal would legalize the possession and distribution of low-THC cannabis extracts.
 
If signed into law by Governor Jay Nixon, or allowed to become law without his signature, House Bill 2238 would authorize the state’s Department of Agriculture to produce, manufacture and distribute cannabis extract that’s low in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and high in CBD (cannabidiol). Those who receive a recommendation from a neurologist would be allowed to possess up to 20 ounces of the extracts.
 
The proposal also mandates the state to certify a college to cultivate cannabis for research purposes. Its passage in the Senate will send it to the state’s governor for consideration.

Obama Administration Puts in an Order for 1,430 Pounds of Marijuana

The Obama Administration needs hundreds and hundreds of pounds of marijuana this year, more than 30 times the amount of pot it originally ordered for 2014.
 
But don’t get any funny ideas. The pot is medicinal, and it’s needed for research purposes.

The Drug Enforcement Administration put out a rule on Monday that adjusts the annual production quota of medical marijuana for the U.S. government. That pot, produced by the University of Mississippi, is used by the National Institutes on Drug Abuse to conduct research on medical marijuana.
 
The NIDA’s research is in demand as states around the country consider legalizing medical marijuana, and as pressure is growing on the federal government to decriminalize it.
 
And that demand means the federal government needs a lot more pot than it thought it needed. The DEA had originally set out a production quota of 21 kilograms of pot for 2014.
 
But the new regulation bumped that quota up to 650 kilograms, or about 1,430 pounds.
 
The price for a kilogram of marijuana varies from state to state, but hovers around $1,000 in many states — using that price, that puts the street value of the government’s order at about $650,000.
 
The DEA rule says the production increase is needed to ensure NIDA has enough product on which to conduct its research.
 
“NIDA recently notified the DEA that it required additional supplies of marijuana to be manufactured in 2014 to provide for current and anticipated research efforts involving marijuana,” the rule stated. “The DEA was unaware of NIDA’s additional need at the time the initial aggregate production quote for marijuana was established in September 2013.
 
“The aggregate production quote for marijuana should be increased in order to provide a continuous and uninterrupted supply of marijuana in support of DEA-registered researchers who are approved by the Federal Government to utilize marijuana in their research protocols.”
 
The rule shows the government can get as much pot as it needs, something most Americans still cannot do given that marijuana is a controlled substance. Many Democrats have proposed legislation that would take medical marijuana off this list, and several Republicans are also on board with this policy change.

Iowa Legislature legalizes medical marijuana oil

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, May, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
mj-oilDES MOINES — Lawmakers legalized a limited form of medical marijuana early Thursday morning giving people who suffer from severe epileptic seizures another option for treatment.
 
The bill allows patients, or their guardians, to possess up to 32 ounces of cannabidiol. Sometimes called CBD, it’s an oil derived from cannabis that has medical applications but doesn’t have a high concentration of THC.
 
Only people who obtain a neurologist’s prescription would be able to obtain the state-issued card which gives them immunity from prosecution if found in possession of the drug.
 
They’ll also have to travel out-of-state to get the drug since it’s illegal to produce it here.
 
“I think it’s important that it’s very narrowly defined,” said Jarad Klein, R-Keota, the House floor manager. The bill passed in the House 77-20.
 
The Senate took up the bill at 4:28 a.m., about an hour after the House vote and passed the bill 38-8.
 
The legislation also requires the University of Iowa to gather research each year on cannabidiol for the General Assembly and Iowa Department of Public Health annually.
 
“What we’re offering today is hope for these families that they can finally get some access to something that can help them,” said Rep. Bob Kressig, D-Cedar Falls.
 
Legalization advocates pushed all year for a bill to loosen restrictions on cannabis, but it wasn’t until the final few weeks of session that real movement began.
 
Credit for pushing the issue is split among a group of mothers of epileptic children who individually lobbied lawmakers on the issue and West Des Moines Mayor Steve Gaer and his wife, Sally. The influential Republican couple, whose daughter, 24-year-old Margaret, suffers from seizures, made inroads with House and Senate GOP members.
