Medical marijuana delays punish patients

Gov. Chris Christie plays politics in delaying the state’s medical marijuana program. He fights to keep children from being able to have edible forms of the medicine. He fights to restrict the kinds of medical cannabis permitted. He fights to restrict the number of distribution points and greatly restricts the licenses he grants to grow. More of our licensees are cronies or tied to the pharmaceutical industry than in any other state.
Medical cannabis patients don’t count these delays in months or years. They count them in seizures, unhealthy pounds dropped, PTSD suicides, days of vomiting, intractable pain and crippling spasms. They count them in addictions to legal painkillers and AIDS and cancer deaths.
 
Clearly, the governor does not understand this. The only way to consider delaying medical treatments is to deny the seriousness of medical cannabis patients’ illnesses and the efficacy of cannabis treatments. In insisting on this ill-informed view, he defaults on his responsibility. As governor, the Compassionate Medical Marijuana Use Act ostensibly binds him to respect both.

Medical Marijuana Patients Rally to Stop Mayor's Proposed Ban in Ventura

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
rally-for-mmj-patientsOn Monday, September 16th, 2013 Ventura City Council will reconvene after their break. Medical marijuana patients, providers and advocates will gather in front of city hall at 5 p.m. for the third time in the hopes of stopping the blanket ban proposed by Mayor Mike Tracy in July. The proposed ordinance will affect patients by making it impossible for any professional medical marijuana dispensaries, delivery services or cooperative cultivation to take place within the city.
 
Members of the Americans for Safe Access Ventura Action Group and concerned community members are asking for sensible regulation and would like to form a working group with government and law enforcement to create compassionate policy while addressing the concerns of both sides of the issue.
 
Although California voters passed the Compassionate Use Act of 1996, the City of Ventura has made no effort to assure patients have safe access to marijuana for use in the treatment of serious and chronic conditions.
 
"There may be some medical quality there in the THC, but it seems to me there'd be a better way of dispensing it than a marijuana cigarette" stated Mayor Mike Tracy to KEYT News on July 8th. ASA member and medical marijuana patient Rachel Sedacca responds to the Mayor's comments "This is exactly the point. Dispensaries are important because that's where patients can go to get tinctures, edibles and topical salves. It's clear that the mayor who's proposing this ban knows little about the issue of marijuana as medicine. We'd like to work together for safe access in Ventura for patients that need it. Most people are familiar with the cannabinoid THC and its psychotropic qualities, but are less familiar with cannabidiol or CBD, which has been used with amazing results, effectively reducing or stopping devastating, relentless seizures for epileptics, crippling spasticity and pain in patients with Multiple Sclerosis, even showing it can shrink tissues of cancerous tumors. However marijuana high in CBD content is just not available on the street because it doesn't get people "high." Staffed by professionals, dispensaries offer safe access to patients, assuring quality, consistency and affordability not available on the black market, where patients will be forced to turn if the ban passes."
