Medical marijuana firm Potbotics to launch 'virtual budtenders'

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 28th 2015 by THCFinder


Using cutting-edge technology, Potbotics wants to change how the medical marijuana industry treats patients.

A common criticism of the medical marijuana industry is that a large portion, if not the majority, of patients are just feigning illnesses so they can get stoned legally. Potboticsco-founder David Goldstein doesn’t deny that’s true of some users, but sees much larger problems at play within the industry.

“Right now doctors give a general cannabis recommendation. It’s just a card that says, ‘Cannabis may be beneficial to you.’ There is no followup, no background check into your medical history, there is no real education process. It leads to people abusing the system,” he says.

hash bash michigan marijuanaThe Ann Arbor News recently published text messages between Washtenaw County Judge Christopher Easthope and attorney Nadir Nassif indicating that the two of them smoked pot together had inappropriate conversations about ongoing cases. A Detroit News columnist called for Easthope to be removed from the bench, sparking a sharp rebuke from Michigan’s top judge, Chief Justice of the Michigan Supreme Court, Justice Robert Young, Jr.

Easthope originally tendered his resignation, effective December 31, 2015, due to unspecified family reasons. The Ann Arbor News released the text messages between judge and lawyer, prompting Easthope to change his tune, admitting that the comments he made in the texts were “deeply offensive” and that he was “betraying the trust you put in me to uphold the dignity of this office.”

Among the text revelations: Nassif and Easthope smoked marijuana together at least once, although when was not published; they drank together regularly; they engaged in what 2 legal consultants referred to as “disallowed ex parte communications,” per an MLive report; he heard cases involving his friends; Easthope helped Nassif boost his $200,000 contract with the city of Ann Arbor and approval of an additional $203,000 to cover his “overage.”

Illinois Passes Law Banning Inmates From Using Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

Citing concerns that local and state detention centers would be forced to distribute medical marijuana to arrestees and inmates, the state of Illinois has passed a law that gives corrections administrators the right to deny prisoners access to cannabis medicine.

Earlier last week, Governor Bruce Rauner put his signature on a bill aimed at eliminating a supposed loophole in the state’s medical marijuana program that some lawmakers worried would have given offenders with a recommendation for medical marijuana permission to use the herb inside the state’s jails and prisons. Of course, the concept of prisoners being allowed to smoke weed scared State Representative Barb Wheeler, the lawmaker responsible for the bill, who made it her mission to ensure “immunity to any law enforcement agency that refuses to give a federally illegal drug” to an inmate. 

Wheeler, who supported the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis pilot program, worried that as the list of qualified conditions swelled to include Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and migraines, there would be a surge in the state’s patient registry, some of which might eventually end up guests of the Illinois Department of Corrections.
