WeedMD Is Now Supplying Medical Marijuana to Seniors In Canada

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

Why aren’t our retirement facilities providing medical marijuana to seniors like they do in Canada? All right, that was a rhetorical question, but it becomes much more relevant in light of new developments involving WeedMD. Apparently, the company is now supplying medical marijuana to seniors living in three large, long-term care and retirement facilities in Canada.

SUPPLYING MEDICAL MARIJUANA TO SENIORS

“Every day, seniors are taking a closer look at the benefits of cannabis to decrease the use of conventional drug therapies,” said WeedMD CEO Bruce Dawson-Scully. He added that the expanding senior market is “increasingly open to marijuana.”

Dawson-Scully got that exactly right. On this side of the border, middle-aged and senior citizens are smoking more weed than teenagers. Naturally, a few Canadian pols are complaining about the “vulnerable residents” being secondary to the interests of the suppliers. With that said, and unlike the U.S.’s pot-detesting government, they are not opposed to the concept of providing medical marijuana to seniors.

Current Trends in Cannabis Use in the United States

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

Current trends in cannabis use: Is the increase in use because of recent research about cannabinoids?

According to the UNODC’s World Drug Report 2016, Cannabis remains the most commonly used drug at the global level, with more than 180 million people having used it in 2015. With roughly 3.8 per cent of the global population consuming weed, its use has remained fairly stable over several years. In fact, there has been change in the social norms towards cannabis – predominantly in the west, cannabis use has climbed in parallel with higher acceptability towards the drug.

The rise in cannabis use appears to have been most pronounced in the United States. Estimates for the Americans show an increase from 37.6 million people (or 6.5 per cent of the population aged 15-64 years) who used cannabis in 2005 to nearly 50 million (or 7.5 per cent of the population aged 15-64 years) in 2015.

Decriminalization Passes Unanimously in Georgia

Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

Atlanta City Council members voted 15-0 to pass a proposed ordinance to decriminalize marijuana. Under current law, possession of weed within the city limits of Atlanta, Georgia is punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 and imprisonment for up to six months.

This new ordinance would eliminate prison for possession of less than an ounce and would reduce any potential fine to a maximum of $75.

Shortly after the vote, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed tweeted support for the initiative, which he has eight days to act on or it becomes law automatically. The mayor said he looked forward “to reviewing & signing this legislation.”

The decriminalization measure was sponsored by Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall, who is running for mayor this year.

“Today we stand with every parent of Atlanta who is fearful of or has seen their children’s lives destroyed, or careers ruined because of a racist policy that unjustly incarcerated minorities by more than 90 percent,” Hall said in a press release after the vote.
