Arizona: Medical Marijuana Activists Score A Big Victory By Getting Harmful Bill Withdrawn

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, January, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

arizona marijuanaYesterday I saw something really cool happen on social media. Early in the day I saw an action alert go out from Arizona in which it was requested that patients and supporters call State Representative Jay Lawrence (R-Fountain Hills) to tell him that HCR 2019 was harmful, and to withdraw it. Then later in the day I saw alerts go out that the bill had been withdrawn. Fantastic! Per the Phoenix New Times:

State Representative Jay Lawrence (R-Fountain Hills) has withdrawn his bill that could have destroyed Arizona’s medical-marijuana program.

Lawrence’s bill, HCR 2019, would have stripped naturopaths and homeopaths of the right to recommend medical marijuana, even though those doctors write nearly 90 percent of the recommendations. His plan also called for patients to renew their cards every six months instead of every year, paying double the annual fees.

“We received so many calls,” he tells New Times. “I had heard anecdotally that [the cards] are handed out wildly. I learned from the callers that there is a lot more care taken by naturopaths than I had originally been told.”

Georgia Lawmaker Admits Breaking the Law to Help Families Get Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, January, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

Known as the "Godfather of the Medical Marijuana Movement" in Georgia, State Rep. Allen Peake has been breaking the law to help families in the state get access to medical marijuana. 

Back in April 2015, Georgia passed a bill legalizing low-THC medical marijuana oil for people suffering from certain diseases; however, the bill made no provisions for in-state cultivation or sales, meaning that legal patients have to find other ways to obtain their medicine. 

Peake, who fought to pass the first law and has introduced a new bill this year that would allow for in-state growing, admitted this week to WSB-TV that he has been going to other states to get medical marijuana and bringing it back to Georgia for families in need.

19 tons of medical marijuana consumed in Arizona last year

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, January, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

PHOENIX — Arizona’s nearly 88,000 medical marijuana patients smoke, ate or otherwise consumed more than 19 tons of the drug last year.

That’s the equivalent of six Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine vans or, if you prefer, nearly 77,000 8-ounce bags of Cheetos. Looking at it another way, it translates to more than 40 million joints, assuming the High Times estimate that a typical one weighs about four-tenths of a gram.

And if the average price for marijuana from state-regulated dispensaries is $300 an ounce, it means medical users spent more than $184 million last year acquiring the drug legally.
