Initiative Campaign To Legalize Cannabis Launched In Wyoming

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
wyoming-medical-marijuanaThe newly-formed Wyoming chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) has launched an initiative drive aimed at legalizing cannabis in one of the most conservative states in the nation.
 
“We don’t like being told what to do by the federal government,” states Christine Christian, Executive Director of Wyoming NORML, “And Wyoming doesn’t like regulations and having our money go somewhere else.”
 
The group is hoping to put their initiative to a vote of the people in 2016, the next presidential election; they’ll be required to collect roughly 37,000 valid signatures to do so.
 
Under current Wyoming law, the possession of even a few grams of cannabis can result in a misdemeanor that carries with it up to a year in prison, something that Christian believes creates more harm than good; “There are way too many people in jail over possessing minor amounts of marijuana… All we are doing is sending them to jail and making them better criminals.”

Marijuana receptor key to possible anti-anxiety drug

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, August, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
mj-anxietyScientists at Vanderbilt University have developed a drug that may relieve anxiety by triggering the same molecules in the brain that respond to marijuana highs.
 
The drug, chemically modified inhibitors of COX-2 enzyme, has been shown to to work with mice, according to a paper to be posted online Sunday in the journal Nature Neuroscience. It relieves anxiety behaviors by activating natural “endocannabinoids” without gastrointestinal side effects.
 
These receptors are also found in the gastrointestinal system and elsewhere in the body, the scientists said, and there is evidence that they play a role in wide range of physiological and pathological processes. The Vanderbilt team hopes to begin clinical trials in humans in the next several years. They also see the potential of of activating endocannabinoids by substrate-selective COX-2 inhibition, including relieving pain, treating movement disorders, and possibly preventing colon cancer.
 
“The door is really wide open,” said Dr. Sachin Patel, assistant professor of psychiatry and of molecular physiology and biophysics. “We’ve just scratched the surface.”

weed-crutchThe Blurred Lines hitmaker revealed his expensive habit as he confessed he even gets medical marijuana from a friend of his.
 
‘I do smoke. I do everything I’m not supposed to do,’ the 36-year-old said.
 
‘Weed is my crutch, my muse, the lesser of all evil. I’ve spent a good $500,000 on pot. I’ve tried to quit smoking. I’ve quit everything once.
 
He told The Sun: ‘My buddy runs a store, I can get medical marijuana. When I’m at home, I’m a non-stop chimney.’
 
Thicke was detained by police last year after he was caught smoking a joint in his car in Manhattan, New York.
 
A police source said at the time that the singer was not driving and only a small amount of weed was found on him.
 
According to CBS News, he was given a desk appearance and released, but there was no comment on the situation from Thicke’s reps.
