Colorado's pot-legalizing Amendment 64 moves a step forward to becoming law today

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, November, 26th 2012 by THCFinder
The marijuana-legalizing Amendment 64 moves a step closer to becoming Colorado law today.
 
County clerks from across the state by the end of today must have submitted their certified vote totals for the fall election.
 
State law sets out a timetable giving Secretary of State Scott Gessler until Dec. 6 to certify the totals. Then, Gov. John Hickenlooper has 30 days to formally sign off.
 
“We’ll review the canvass board reports from each of the counties and then tabulate all of the results from the counties and issue the certified results,” said Rich Coolidge, a spokesman for Gessler. “Most of them will come in today.”
 
Amendment 64, which legalizes small amounts of recreational pot for personal use, takes effect upon Hickenlooper’s signature. Under the law, anyone 21 and older may possess up to an ounce of pot, and can smoke it in a private place without violating state law.
 
The ballot measure also establishes a system of marijuana stores, regulation and potential taxation, but those portions phase in over the next several years.
 
The Boulder and Denver district attorneys have already ended simple marijuana-possession prosecutions, although Weld and Larimer prosecutors say they will consider each prosecution on a case-by-case basis.
 
Because marijuana remains illegal on the federal level, state officials are struggling to reconcile the conflicting laws. Hickenlooper and Attorney General John Suthers have both said they will support the state law because it passed with broad voter support, but have cautioned that implementing the law may be difficult.

Oregon girl, 7, is medical marijuana patient

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, November, 26th 2012 by THCFinder
PORTLAND, Ore. - A 7-year-old girl suffering from leukemia has become one of Oregon's youngest medical marijuana patients.
 
Mykayla Comstock's mother credits the drug with helping put the cancer into remission.
 
But her father, worried about the effects of the drug on her brain development, alerted child welfare officials to the treatment.
 
Mykayla was diagnosed with leukemia last spring and the marijuana eases the effects of chemotherapy, according to her mother. The girl takes a gram of cannabis oil daily, The Oregonian reported.
 
"First you get hungry," Mykayla told the paper. "Then you get really funny, and then you get tired."
 
Her mother, Erin Purchase, 25, administers Mykayla's cannabis with the help of her boyfriend.
 
Mykayla's mother credits the drug for the leukemia's remission.
 
"As a mother, I am going to try anything before she can potentially fall on the other side," said Erin Purchase, 25, who administers Mykayla's cannabis together with her boyfriend.
 
Mykayla's father, who is divorced from the girl's mother and lives in North Dakota, contacted child welfare officials, police and her oncologist.
 
Jesse Comstock said his concerns were prompted by a visit with Mykayla in August.
 
"She was stoned out of her mind," said Comstock, 26. "All she wanted to do was lay on the bed and play video games."
 
Comstock pays child support to Purchase and covers Mykayla's health insurance, the paper reported.
 
Oregon law requires no monitoring of a child's medical marijuana use by a pediatrician.
