Florida mom fights for medical marijuana for ailing 2 year old girl

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, September, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
florida-mom-fights-for-mmj-for-daughterTAMPA - Dahlia is fighting brain cancer after surgery to remove part of an aggressive tumor at St. Joseph's Hospital. Now, her mother says she just wants to get her to her third birthday, with the help of a type of marijuana that's been shown to reduce cancerous tumors.
 
"Dalia's 2. She's almost 3 at the end of the month,” said mom Moriah Barnhart.
 
This Tampa mom knows there are no guarantees in life, not even third birthdays.
 
"They sedated Dahlia and took her in for an MRI,” she said in a YouTube video.
 
"I'm under the impression this was about as aggressive as it could be. It spread to her brain stem in the three weeks since her surgery to remove the portion of the tumor they could remove,” she told me via Skype.
 
Doctors diagnosed the cancerous tumor on May 5. Then Barnhart says she chose to take Dahlia to St. Jude's in Memphis, Tenn., where she's now being treated with chemotherapy and drugs.
 
But the treatment Barnhart is fighting for may take other parents off guard.
 
"To tell me that you would have given that to a 2 year old right before her diagnosis probably would have horrified me at this point I completely understand that it's safer and it's necessary."
 
Barnhart says medical marijuana, in liquid form, has been shown to reduce cancerous tumors.
 
"Generally, it’s an extract from the drug as morphine is. You extract it from the plant and you take it in liquid form," she said.
 
The Tampa mom is petitioning the Obama administration and telling her story on YouTube.

Mexico Backs Medical Marijuana, But Not Recreational

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, September, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
mexico-backs-marijuanaPoliticians who want to change Mexico’s marijuana policies must face an uncomfortable reality: An overwhelming majority of this country’s population opposes the legalization of weed.
 
A poll published this week, however, does offer some good news to those who would prefer a less prohibitionist stance towards the herb.
 
It suggests that 65 percent of Mexicans favor the legalization of marijuana for medical use. Only 29 percent of the country’s residents oppose medical marijuana, according to the poll, which was conducted in August by the Parametria research group.
 
The findings come as Mexican politicians discuss new approaches to marijuana policy. Current laws strictly prohibit the sale and production of the plant.
 
In Mexico City, the local legislature has held several hearings on marijuana policy this summer, with some officials backing plans to legalize cannabis clubs, where the herb could be grown and smoked, for recreational purposes.
 
Meanwhile in the Mexican Congress, a group of legislators has drafted a bill that would regulate the production and sale of marijuana. The bill would also allow Mexicans to buy weed at state-sanctioned distributors, or grow up to four plants at home.
 
Congressman Fernando Belaunzaran, who is leading efforts to get this bill approved, says that legalizing marijuana would reduce the incomes of violent drug cartels who currently traffic the drug, and are responsible for thousands of murders in Mexico.
 
“To take that market away from them, would be a big hit on their finances. They are only as strong as their resources,” Belaunzaran told local news site Animal Politico.
 
But Belaunzaran’s argument does not seem to fly too well with most Mexicans.
 
In polls conducted over recent years by different firms, at least 75 percent of Mexicans have said they oppose the legalization of weed, while support for legalization hovers between 10 to 20 percent of the population.

Medical marijuana restrictions to be enforced again

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, September, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-enforcement-san-diegoSAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego Police Department and the city's Neighborhood Code Compliance Office have been ordered to resume enforcing medical marijuana zoning restrictions, Interim Mayor Todd Gloria said Thursday.
 
In the first of what he promises to be weekly media briefings, Gloria said a draft medical marijuana ordinance will be publicly vetted this fall, and could go before the City Council early next year.
 
Without such a law, medical marijuana dispensaries are illegal within city limits.
 
Former Mayor Bob Filner, who resigned in disgrace at the end of last month, was a strong supporter of medical marijuana and refused to enforce the city's zoning ordinances.
 
While dozens of dispensaries were shut down under previous Mayor Jerry Sanders, many resumed doing business during Filner's nine months in office.
 
"The city of San Diego will not reward bad behavior," Gloria said.
 
He said he issued the order to resume enforcement last week, but was unaware of whether any cases had been referred to the City Attorney's Office.
 
"What I've identified as we've been working through our top-down review of city departments is that the previous administration didn't always follow the rules," Gloria said. "When we know that we don't actually have zoning regulations that allow for medical marijuana dispensaries, obviously the mayor had ceased enforcement, and was not providing the cases that Code Compliance would generate to the City Attorney's Office."
 
The city of San Diego went years without adopting rules that would allow dispensaries to operate legally under the Compassionate Use Act, passed by state voters in 1996.
