California Vet Doug Kramer Wants Medical Marijuana For Dogs
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, April, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
California veterinarian Doug Kramer has launched a campaign to legalize medical marijuana for dogs. Kramer believes THC in marijuana could help canines with conditions that are not responding to other treatments.
Kramer has a website focused on alternative medicine called “Vet Guru: Enlightened Therapeutics.” The About Us page reads:
Rather than relying solely on pharmaceutical medications alone, Dr. Kramer believes strongly in a more holistic and comprehensive approach.
Kramer told Harry Cheadle at VICE he got the idea for medical marijuana from a client. “A client first brought it to my attention.”
“She had a pet that was not responding well to any of the pain medications or the steroids that we were giving it, and she wanted to talk about getting medical marijuana,” Kramer said.
When asked how he would administer THC to dogs, Kramer suggested a glycerin cannabis tincture, which requires the patient take a drop of, usually tasty, THC on the tongue, rather than smoking or eating it.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Workers at a group of Maine medical marijuana dispensaries are protesting working conditions at the dispensaries.
About 25 people rallied Saturday in Portland in protest of Wellness Connection of Maine, the state's largest medical marijuana dispensary group with facilities in Portland, Brewer, Thomaston and Hallowell.
Protesters told the Maine Sunday Telegram (http://bit.ly/YCFVjS ) their employer is ignoring their concerns about working conditions and their effort to unionize. Unionized employees say Wellness Connection has refused to recognize the union, while others say unionized employees don't represent a majority.

Thousands rally for marijuana legalization at annual Hash Bash in Ann Arbor
Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, April, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
As speakers at Saturday’s 42nd annual Hash Bash at the University of Michigan Diag called for the legalization of marijuana, Ralph Worick’s green and white-striped flag fluttered in the blustery chill.
“I think we should decriminalize cannabis period,” Worick said as he steadied the white plastic piping that held the flag, which also had large and small marijuana leaf images similar to stars, high above the crowd. “My flag represents the United States of Euphoria.”
Worick, who lives in Portage near Kalamazoo, is 56 but has been smoking marijuana since he was 11. He said he has been in the pro-marijuana “movement” since 1975, and he’s brought some type of flag to the event every year since 2003, although he noted that last year’s Bob Marley “Freedom” flag just seemed to confuse people.
Worick’s long-term commitment to legalizing marijuana was reflected in the range of speakers at the event that drew an estimated 3,000 people, according to University of Michigan Police spokeswoman Diane Brown, who noted that there were a few calls for ambulances as well as some enforcement for marijuana possession and citations issued for illegal sales not necessarily affiliated with marijuana. Brown noted the potential for an eventful day because of the mixture of crowds attracted to the Hash Bash, those watching the Final Four game featuring the Wolverines men's basketball team and a large gathering of Native Americans in Ann Arbor.
