D.A.R.E. Dropping Marijuana From Kids' Ant-Drug Curriculum

Category: News | Posted on Mon, December, 3rd 2012 by THCFinder
As of this month, Drug Abuse Resistance Education, or D.A.R.E., the nation's largest anti-drug non-profit group, will no longer indoctrinate public school elementary kids against the evils of marijuana.
 
This is pretty major news, stoners, since D.A.R.E. has been preaching against the funky weed since the just-say-no days of the 1980s, and the use of marijuana by kids is the only victory that the group claims it's been able to deliver during that time. 
 
That self-congratulatory claim is itself dubious, however, since several studies and government audits over the years have argued that D.A.R.E. has actually been responsible for rising rates of pot smoking among adolescents, who might not have known anything about  ganja if it wasn't for being exposed to it by D.A.R.E. Indeed, this controversy is why D.A.R.E.'s funding in recent years has plummeted from more than $10 million per year to just third that amount, and why, hoping to reverse that trend, the group recently unveiled a new and hip anti-drug campaign called "Keeping It Real."

Harborside Health Center: Landlord Can't Evict Medical Marijuana Dispensary

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Mon, December, 3rd 2012 by THCFinder
California Court Upholds State Law; Federal Court Next on Dec. 20
 
Oakland's Harborside Health Center is in the business of selling medical marijuana. This is obvious to anyone -- and in particular the dispensary's landlord, who last week had her effort to evict the dispensary tossed by a judge.
 
The landlord, Ana Chretien, tried to evict her tenant in an effort to prevent the federal Justice Department from seizing 1840 Embarcadero, which has since 2006 housed the dispensary. U.S. Attorney for Northern California Melinda Haag filed a forfeiture proceeding in July, and Chretien filed an unlawful retainer lawsuit in August.
 
Chretien might have had success, had she not made one fatal error: including in the lease explicit permission for Harborside's operators to run a medical marijuana dispensary. That's protected under state law, ruled a judge, who added that federal law can't be used to evict or otherwise shut down a state-legal operation. 
 
This does not mean that Harborside's fight is won. Far from it. A federal judge is scheduled to hear Haag outline the government's case for taking Chretien's property -- a low-slung office building just a minute's drive from Interstate 880 -- on Dec. 20. The hearing has been postponed several times and may be postponed again.
 
But in the meantime, Judge Evelio Grillo's ruling is a victory for California medical cannabis providers, provided they were diligent when they signed their leases.

Doctor says marijuana reduced infant's brain tumor, should be used for children

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, December, 3rd 2012 by THCFinder
According to the Huffington Post on Dec. 1, a formerly skeptical doctor says medical marijuana should be a part of a pediatrician's arsenal to help children after he witnessed a remarkable reduction in a baby's brain tumor.
 
Dr. William Courtney, a former skeptic, has drastically changed his tune after he witnessed the effects of marijuana treatment on an 8-month-old patient. Dr. Courtney said that the baby had a "very massive centrally located inoperable brain tumor." The child's father wanted non-traditional treatment.
 
"They were putting cannabinoid oil on the baby's pacifier twice a day, increasing the dose... And within two months there was a dramatic reduction, enough that the pediatric oncologist allowed them to go ahead with not pursuing traditional therapy."
 
After eight months of treatment, the tumor was greatly reduced in size. Dr. Courtney says that because of the cannabis treatment and the excellent results, "This child is not going to have the long-term side effects that would come from a very high dose of chemotherapy or radiation."
 
The child is being called a miracle baby. Dr. Courtney further stated, "I would have to agree that this is the perfect response that we should be insisting is front line therapy for all children before they launch off on all medications that have horrific long term side effects."
