California Dems Say "No!" to Medical Marijuana Crackdown, Federal Interference in CO, WA

Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
no-crackdown-from-fedsSoCal activist Lanny Swerdlow recently notified us that the California Democratic Party passed two historic resolutions on the issue of marijuana at its Executive Board meeting in Costa Mesa on Sunday, July 21.
 
“The first resolution called on President Obama to (1) respect the voters of Colorado and Washington and to not allow any federal interference in the enactment of their marijuana legalization initiatives, (2) end the federal raids on patients and providers in medical marijuana states and (3) appoint a commission to look into the reform of our nation’s marijuana laws.
 
“The 2nd resolution calls on our state legislature to enact statewide guidelines for medical marijuana distribution that respects the rights of local municipalities to regulate and license but will also provide marijuana 'to all patients in all areas of California, rural as well as urban.'

“These are now official positions of the party and add another level of mainstream approval for medical marijuana and marijuana law reform - approval that will hold us in especially good stead when speaking with Democratic elected officials and candidates,” Swerdlow wrote.
US Attorney General Eric Holder has never said how the feds will respond to Colorado and Washington ending pot prohibition.

Best Treatment for Migraines? Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
migraines-fixed-cannabisMarijuana is the best treatment for migraines, writes the father of internal medicine, Dr. Sir William Osler in “The Principles and Practice of Medicine” first published in 1892.
 
“Cannabis indica is probably the most satisfactory remedy [for migraines],” Osler wrote, agreeing with Edward Constant Seguin – the president of the New York Neurological Society and Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons professor.
 
Such stunning endorsements for pot come courtesy of a new online medical cannabis study program initiated by TheAnswerPage.com, which is sponsored and accredited by the Massachusetts Medical Society – the oldest continuously-operating state medical society in the United States.
 
Founded in 1998, TheAnswerPage began offering Continuing Medical Education (CME) courses on medical marijuana July 9. While the information on TheAnswerPage is designed mainly for physicians and healthcare professionals, a daily Q&A on medical marijuana is written for the lay person.
 
For example, The Answer Page asks: “How many overdose deaths have occurred from cannabis?”
 
The answer? “Zero. Cannabis, even in concentrated forms, is incapable of causing overdose in humans.”

Recreational Marijuana Sales Banned In More Than Two Dozen Colorado Cities

Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
mj-banned-incoAlthough Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed several historic measures to implement marijuana legalization in the state, establishing Colorado as the world's first legal, regulated and taxed marijuana market for adults back in May, many of the Centennial State's cities are banning retail legal weed.
 
On Tuesday, Colorado Springs, the state's second largest city, is expected to vote to ban retail recreational marijuana stores, The Associated Press reports. Four of nine Colorado Springs City Council members have already said they will vote against retail weed stores. But even if legal marijuana sales are approved, Mayor Steve Bach has vowed to veto recreational pot shops in the city limits.
 
The City Council could just ban recreational marijuana sales altogether or allow marijuana sales but also pass a moratorium on opening pot shops until after Colorado voters weigh in on approving tax rates for recreational marijuana in the state this November. But according to the Gazette, Bach has said he'd even veto the moratorium option.
 
"This is so important to our community and in our best interest that I will respectfully need to veto anything short of opting out," Bach said in a Gazette report.
 
Recreational pot sales in Colorado cities that opt-in can begin on Jan. 1, 2014.
