The Feeling Of Marijuana Freedom In Colorado

Category: News | Posted on Sun, June, 7th 2015 by THCFinder
 

colorado marijuana legalization denver daHaving just spent the last few days attending the annual NORML Aspen Legal Seminar, I wanted to share some observations about the experience of spending time in a state that no longer cares if I smoke marijuana or not. And as you might expect, it feels wonderful.

No longer must I deal with the fear of being arrested and jailed — treated like some dangerous or undesirable person who needs to be restrained to protect the good citizens who do not smoke. That, obviously, is the most important change.

Second, I no longer have to deal with the uncertainties and dangers of engaging with those who risk serious prison time to sell marijuana on the totally unregulated black market. Over the years most of us identify those “in the business” whom we like and can trust, and we do our best to nourish those “connections” and to extend them as long as possible. But we always know that should the police raid our connection at the time we are conducting our business, we too will likely end up being hauled off to jail; or should our connection be robbed by some thug looking for an easy score, or some peeved competitor looking to settle a score, while we are buying our weed, we too are in harms way.

And when those carefully nurtured relationships ultimately ended, because the connection decided to get out of the business, or moved away, or, God forbid, got busted, we would then have to start the process of identifying a good, reliable source of high quality marijuana all over again.

In Colorado their are hundreds of licensed dispensaries — six in the rather small town of Aspen — and they compete for our business, leaving us free to compare costs and quality and to purchase our favorite intoxicant in a professional setting that is comfortable and safe.

Louisiana Close to Legalizing Medical Marijuana, Better Legislation than Texas

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, June, 7th 2015 by THCFinder

Louisiana, which is, perhaps, the most infamous state in the nation for its strictness for all things pertaining to pot, is on the verge of resurrecting a medical marijuana program that has set idle for over two decades.  

On Thursday, the House of Representatives put their seal of approval on a bill that would allow patients suffering from specific, serious conditions to have access to the herb. The measure was pushed through in a vote of 70 to 29. It now heads back to the Senate for approval over an amendment that would make the bill functional once it is signed into law. 

Louisiana legalized medical marijuana 24 years ago, but it has since been a worthless law because the language only allows physicians to prescribe the herb rather than offer recommendations. As we learned earlier this week with the recent legalization of cannabis oil in Texas, physicians are forced to violate the Controlled Substances Act by writing “prescriptions” rather than provide certifications, meaning patients can not get their hands on the medicine once it is made available.

Hospitals Back Providers Applying for New York State Marijuana Licenses

Category: News | Posted on Sat, June, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

New York’s new medical marijuana program has drawn the interest of several major hospitals, which have formed alliances with aspiring growers to try to make the drug accessible to their patients.
 
Friday was the deadline for companies to apply to become one of up to five licensed medical marijuana producers and distributors in the state. The State Health Department said on Friday that it was not yet able to release the number or names of the companies that had applied.
 
But one hospital group, North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, with a heavy presence in and east of New York City, announced that it had applied for a license in partnership with Silverpeak Apothecary, a medical marijuana company based in Colorado, where marijuana has been legalized for medical and recreational use. A new company, Silverpeak NY, was created for the application.
 
Michael Dowling, chief executive of the North Shore-L.I.J. system, said in a statement that it had formed the partnership because it “recognizes the importance of our patients having access to every legal option to manage the symptoms of their illness, if there is clinical evidence to support marijuana’s use for the condition.”
