Missouri Will Start Accepting Hemp Production Applications

Category: News | Posted on Wed, October, 22nd 2014 by THCFinder
accepting-hemp-applicationsHemp can be used for all kinds of things. Articles that came out this year show that hemp can be used to make super efficient batters. Hemp can also be used for building materials that absorb pollutants and insulate better than petroleum products that are currently being used. Hemp can be used as a bio fuel, and of course, hemp can be used to make clothes and paper. The hemp plant is probably the most versatile plant on the entire planet. The State of Missouri is going to start accepting applications to grow it. Per STL Today:
Missouri officials announced Friday they will begin taking applications from people seeking to use hemp extract to treat severe seizures, although it could be awhile before the plant is distributed.
The state health and agriculture departments issued procedures and guidelines to begin enforcing a new state law that allows people with severe, persistent seizures to use an oil derived from cannabis plants as a medical treatment.
Residents seeking to use the oil can apply through the Missouri health department. In order to use the oil, a neurologist must certify that an applicant had already tried three other treatments.
But hemp production for the treatment is still a ways off. The Agriculture Department announced Friday it will begin taking applications from growers on Nov. 3. The application window will be open for 30 days after which the department expects to grant two licenses.
I look forward to a day when Missouri will allow more than two licenses. I also look forward to a day when Missouri legalizes all forms of medical marijuana so that all patients can use it if they want to. Eventually, Missouri will legalize recreational marijuana as well, which will help the show-me state considerably by saving tax payer dollars, and generating jobs and boosting the state’s economy.

King Kush - Indica

With its background of OG Kush and Grape Ape, King Kush contains flavors of citrus, pine and kush. With a gradual but powerful high, King Kush is famous for its potency and shiny trichromes during flowering. This strain comes across as sweet and sour with its powerful and tangy grape scent, and some hints of lavender.


No, marijuana use doesn't lower your IQ

marijuana-does-not-lower-your-iqA 2012 Duke University study made international headlines when it purported to find a link between heavy marijuana use and IQ decline among teenagers. Other researchers questioned the findings almost immediately: Columbia University's Carl Hart noted the very small sample of heavy users (38) in the study, leading him to question how generalizable the results were.
Then, a follow-up study published 6 months later in the same journal found that the Duke paper failed to account for a number of confounding factors: "Although it would be too strong to say that the results have been discredited, the methodology is flawed and the causal inference drawn from the results premature," it concluded.
Now, a new study out from the University College of London provides even stronger evidence that the Duke findings were flawed. The study draws on a considerably larger sample of adolescents than the Duke research - 2,612 children born in the Bristol area of the U.K. in 1991 and 1992. Researchers examined children's IQ scores at age 8 and again at age 15, and found "no relationship between cannabis use and lower IQ at age 15," when confounding factors - alcohol use, cigarette use, maternal education, and others - were taken into account. Even heavy marijuana use wasn't associated with IQ.
"In particular alcohol use was found to be strongly associated with IQ decline," the authors write. "No other factors were found to be predictive of IQ change."
The UK study does find evidence, however, of slightly impaired educational abilities among the very heaviest marijuana users. This group of students scored roughly 3% lower on school exams taken at age 16, even after adjusting for confounding factors.

50 Medical Marijuana Dispensaries In San Jose File For Permits

mj-dispensaries-file-for-permitsSAN JOSE (KCBS) — There was a filing frenzy by owners of medical marijuana dispensaries in San Jose as they sought to beat a registration deadline on Friday, but strict new requirements may make it nearly impossible for them to get a permit.
During the summer, San Jose voted to shut down about 90 medical marijuana businesses by Oct. 17 and allow some to reopen with an operating permit in 2015 but by time the smoke had cleared after 5 p.m. deadline on Friday, 50 of the 78 dispensaries had filed an application.
“They have to be in industrial locations. They can’t be near residential homes. They can’t be near schoolsor pre-schools. There is a number of conditions we will look at and then we’ll screen those out right away,” San Jose city spokesman, David Vossbrink said. “What we don’t know for sure yet is: of those 50, how many of them are actually complete and will meet the threshold for either location or for all the material they need for our operating requirements?”
Former dispensary owner Dave Hodges, who was forced to close up shop thinks the zoning and operational requirements are so onerous that less than ten will likely survive the screening process.
“The locations that are available, I’ve heard of outrageous numbers such as $30,000 to $50,000 a month for rent with large deposits and even obligations to buy the building,” he said.
