Big Pharma Trying to Corner the MMJ Market

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, March, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

An infamous Arizona pharmaceutical company that spent a half million dollars fighting the state’s marijuana legalization efforts has just received approval from the DEA for its synthetic substitute for the natural plant.

Insys Therapeutics, Inc. is the producer of Syndros, an oral spray that contains THC. The drug is used to treat nausea and vomiting in cancer patients, as well as weight loss in those battling AIDS.

Syndros is a brand name for the company’s formulation of the generic drug dronabinol, which has been available since 1985 as a capsule under the brand name Marinol.

In 2016, Insys donated $500,000 to Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy, a group campaigning against Proposition 205, which would have legalized adult recreational use of marijuana in Arizona. The proposition failed to pass by a 52 percent-48 percent vote in last November’s election.

Cannabis and Comedy Converge at The Gateway Show

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, March, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

The Gateway Show is a comedy show based in Seattle and began a few years ago.  I had not heard about this comedy show until recently, and got to attend my first (of what I hope will be many) a few months ago and laughed so hard I cried!  This show is a fairly typical comedy show with a twist as the comedians perform after cannabis consumption.

The concept is simple: the comedians come in and each perform a set of comedy.  Then, they take an intermission and go off site and get dabbed out of their brains.  Rip City Remedies helps with the product and Hermetic Botanicals helps with the edibles and their other products.  After their sesh, the comedians return to the venue (the Funhouse Lounge is who hosts these shows in Portland) and each do a second set of comedy while under the influence.

University Drops Out of Pot for PTSD Study; Vets Demand Answers

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

Though cannabis is legal in the District of Columbia, there isn’t much medical marijuana access in the greater Washington, D.C. metro area. Virginia is still a no-go zone, and four years after lawmakers in Maryland approved medical marijuana, would-be patients in that state are still waiting for the first delivery.

Keep in mind that the area around the nation’s capital is full of military veterans. Post-traumatic stress disorder affects between 10 and 30 percent of vets, and PTSD is one of the conditions for which medical cannabis in Maryland is available—but until that state’s cannabis program becomes active later this summer, at the earliest, one of the only options for area combat vets to (legally) try cannabis for PTSD was through a study.

Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore was one of two research institutions in the U.S. to receive funding to see if smoked marijuana helped combat-related stress, as a growing body of anecdotal evidence suggests.
