D.C. Bill Lets Doctors Decide Medical Marijuana Patient Needs

On Tuesday, Yvette Alexander, District of Columbia Council member for Ward 7, introduced the Medical Marijuana Expansion Amendment Act of 2014. The bill would amend the previous qualifying conditions list restricting D.C. patients’ access to medical marijuana. Currently, a doctor can only recommend medical marijuana for four conditions (HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, cancer, and multiple sclerosis).
 
Marijuana has been found to help treat a wide variety of conditions beyond those that qualify a patient for the D.C. program.  Alexander’s bill would strike out the qualifying conditions list altogether and permit the physician to make the decision as to whether or not medical marijuana would benefit a patient. This way, doctors wouldn’t have to be constrained by politics or wait for government officials to pass laws every time new benefits are discovered.
 
According to an NBC Washington report, all 13 Council members are in favor of this amendment. Even the Health Department Director, Joxel Gracia, testified that recommending medical marijuana should be up to doctors instead of government officials.
 
D.C.’s prohibitive medical marijuana laws have been largely ineffective, only protecting about 250 patients of the estimated 40,000 eligible patients living in the District since the current law went into effect in 2013. However, the bill would amend neither the rules governing the heavily regulated process by which a patient acquires a medical marijuana card, nor the rules controlling cultivation and distribution
 
Hearings on the new medical marijuana bill are likely to begin in early May of this year, with a vote following soon after.

Colorado Reveals Marijuana Vending Machines

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, April, 14th 2014 by THCFinder

There are more then a few memes that circulate the internet showing candy machines full of nugs. Usually the captions read something like "wishful thinking" or "someday", giving stoners everywhere the hope that one day, they'll be able to buy their buds out of a vending machine. Of course, with the legalization of cannabis in Colorado, hopes rose even further that weed would be available whenever, where ever. And recently, those dreams came true as Colorado unveiled the very first cannabis vending machine, a situation that most stoners only imagined that they would see.
 
The machine idea was released last Friday night in the town of Avon. The machines, called "ZaZZZ" will provide not just weed but edibles as well. American Green's chief operating officer, Stephen Shearing also said that the machines are great for "shy folks" who aren't really apt to walk in to a pot store and say "why yes, I'd like your finest cannabis please". Remember that there are still people who hide their pot smoking and not everyone is as open about it as others. While the machines will be convenient, it is said that they will only be able to be accessed by bud tenders, meaning that you will need the proper license and ID to use the ZaZZZ.
 
This idea is extremely soon, considering that weed has only be legal in Colorado for six months. But while the idea may seem forward, it will definitely benefit the patients who are seeking some secrecy, as well as others who know what they want and don't need to wait in line at dispensaries and shops. As of right now, the machines are being installed inside of the Avon medical marijuana dispensary and there are hopes that it will be operational by 4/20 this year. This is a great step for medical and recreational marijuana. We can only expect more innovative ideas such as this one as the cannabis industry continues to gain momentum.

Blackberry Kush - Indica

Blackberry Kush is a mostly Indica Kush with a strong blackberry smell and pink and red hairs. It truly lives up to its name, with a remarkably strong blackberry / piney / hashy smell. As a potent Indica, Blackberry Kush is couchlock weed, and so it is not recommended for high-activity moments.

Group Pushes To End Oklahoma's Ban On Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, April, 11th 2014 by THCFinder
end-mmj-banTULSA, Oklahoma - An Oklahoma group is taking a step toward legalizing medical marijuana in the state. Oklahomans for Health will file an application for petition with the Secretary of State Friday, hoping to put the legalization of medical marijuana up for a statewide vote.
"The time is right now in Oklahoma to really get this going," said Oklahomans for Health chairman, Chip Paul.
 
Paul said the non-profit group has made it easy for lawmakers, by drafting a proposal to legalize marijuana for medical purposes.
 
"We've done a lot of research in other states -- what worked, what didn't, what's the most effective way, from a state perspective, to manage this and we've put that language in this initiative, so it should be a very easy thing for the state of Oklahoma to manage," Paul said.
 
Oklahoma's current ban on medical marijuana for medical purposes has some families so desperate that they're leaving the state, like little Jaqie Angel Warrior and her family.
 
Jaqie's mom, Brittany Hardy, said her daughter has the name of fighter.
 
"For a very strong little baby, she's the strongest soul I've ever met in life," said Hardy.
 
Jaqie is living with a very rare and potentially deadly form of epilepsy. At 20 months old, she's already been hospitalized 25 times and has up to 150 seizures a day.
 
"Every day that she's able to wake up and live through these seizures is another miracle and I'm tired of gambling with her life here in this state," Hardy said.
 
Her mom said Jaqie has tried every anti-seizure drug allowed in Oklahoma, with no success and no relief.
 
"She deserves some peace, she deserves her suffering to end, Oklahoma will never provide her that, not right now anyway," said Hardy. "She doesn't deserve to have to suffer just because of her zip code."
 
Hardy said Jaqie's doctor agrees, the little girl's only hope is medical marijuana.
 
So on Saturday, Jaqie, along with her mom, dad and three sisters, are packing up and moving to Colorado, where medical marijuana is legal.
 
"As parents, we refuse to let seizures come in and steal our baby," Hardy said. "At this point, we have no other option."
 
Its stories, like Jaqie's, that have moved Oklahomans for Health to push the state to lift its ban on medical marijuana.
 
"Literally, you could go to the Oklahoma State Penitentiary for treating your cancer with marijuana and that's just wrong," Paul said.
 
He said doctors, not the government, should determine if patients use pot to treat their pain.
 
As of now, Paul said, patients who suffer from serious medical conditions are prescribed pharmaceutical drugs that are highly addictive and have serious side effects.
 
"They would be far better served with something that's non-addictive, that's an herbal remedy, versus and addictive prescription drug," said Paul.
 
Jaqie's parents say their little one takes two different narcotics.
 
"One of them she's physically addicted to, she's been addicted to it since she was 6 months old," Hardy said. "We would literally be arrested if we didn't give them to her."
 
Hardy said she calls and writes lawmakers nearly every day, begging for an amendment to the law. She, like Paul, believes Oklahoma voters have the right to decide whether the marijuana, for medical purposes, should be legalized in the state.
 
"It's a valid medicine and it needs be recognized as such, it could literally help hundreds of thousands of people," Paul said.
 
If the state gives Oklahomans for Health the green light on starting a petition, Paul said the plan would be to kick of the initiative June 1st. Then, they will have 90 days to gather 190,000 physical signatures.
