Opioid use decreases in US states that legalize medical marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sun, September, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

New research shows a decline in the use of opioid painkillers in US states that allow people to treat pain with medical marijuana, affirming the fears of Big Pharma who have been vigorously seeking to frustrate efforts to legalize the herb.

Columbia University researchers examined data from 1999 to 2013 and found an association between a state legalizing medical marijuana and a reduction in testing positive for opioids after dying in a car accident, particularly among drivers aged 21 to 40.

Massachusetts Officials Move to Allow Nurses to Recommend Medical Cannabis, Other Changes

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, September, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

The Massachusetts Department of Health has presented to the Public Health Council new suggested rules that would overhaul the state’s medical cannabis law to make it easier for patients and those wanting to become patients. The new rules will go through a public comment period this fall before being voted on by the Public Health Council, which is an appointed board of physicians, consumer advocates and educational professionals.

Under the proposed rules, nurse practitioners would be legally qualified to recommend medical cannabis to patients, whereas under current law this authority is exclusive to physicians. If the change becomes official, Massachusetts would join Vermont, Maryland, Minnesota, Washington and New Hampshire as states that allow nurses to recommend medical cannabis.

Pot Matters: Pardon Tommy Chong

Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, September, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

It’s time to petition the White House to give a pardon to Tommy Chong.  Go on, click the link and do it now, then come back and read more about it.

Tommy Chong was arrested on federal charges in 2003 for selling bongs and served a nine-month prison sentence. In court, the prosecutor argued that he “used his public image to promote this crime” and that, in turn, marketed his products to children. The nine-month sentence was part of a plea agreement.

The White House has a web-feature for citizens to file petitions on subjects of interest. If they receive 100,000 signatures in 30 days, the White House will answer the petition. They won’t necessarily grant the required action, but they do take note when enough people sign the petition to get their attention. Chong’s petition raises an issue that deserves the attention of the White House and political leaders.
