Good Intentions Medical Marijuana Clinic In Chicago Readies For Wicker Park Opening

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, August, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
chicago-mmj-dispensariesThe ink on Illinois' newly-signed medical marijuana bill has barely dried and already, Chicago's first medical marijuana clinic is ready to roll.
 
Clinic president Tammy Jacobi told Crain's Chicago Business Good Intentions LLC at 1723 N. Ashland Ave. in Wicker Park will start accepting its first patients Aug. 7.
 
"We're very excited about it," Jacobi said. "We're already getting calls from people asking if they can invest.
 
Jacobi, a registered nurse who has run a similar clinic on the lakeshore town of Saugatuck, Mich. since 2011 said Good Intentions will not grow, sell or dispense marijuana. Rather, the clinic's role will be to help would-be users of medical marijuana develop a relationship before the Jan. 1 2014 effective date.
 
Jacobi is firing up the clinic now since the medical marijuana bill passed before June 1; under Illinois law, if the bill has no immediate effective date, it goes into effect Jan. 1 of the following year.
 
DNAinfo Chicago reports that while clinics like Good Intentions can't dispense marijuana, patients can get prescriptions for pot from a doctor there. 
 
State law stipulates there can only be 60 actual marijuana dispensaries throughout Illinois and the location of where they'll be distributed is still unknown.
 
The state's new law is among the strictest in the nation and stipulates doctors may only approve medical marijuana use for patients with whom they have an existing relationship.

Man gets life in prison for trafficking marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
prison-for-mmjA Gordon man received life in prison after he pleaded guilty to trafficking $300,000 worth of marijuana in Houston County.
 
District Attorney Doug Valeska said 41-year-old Steven Craig Hooven pleaded guilty to a felony trafficking marijuana charge in front of Circuit Court Judge Brad Mendheim.
 
Valeska said Hooven received an enhanced sentence, of life in prison, because of three prior felony convictions out of Tennessee.
 
Houston County Sheriff’s investigators arrested Hooven on Aug. 16, 2012, on the marijuana trafficking charge.
 
The charge stemmed from a patrol deputy making a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Hooven for speeding on State Line Road near Cottonwood and US 231 South.
 
The traffic stop led investigators with the Houston County Sheriff’s narcotics unit to get a search warrant for Hooven’s home where they discovered a large indoor marijuana growing operation.

Drunk Drivers Are 30 Times More Likely To Get In An Accident Than Cannabis Consumers

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
drunk-vs-stonedA new study published online by the journal Accident Analysis & Prevention has concluded what cannabis advocates have known for years; cannabis is the least dangerous “drug” to consume before driving; alcohol is the worst. In fact, the study found that those with a blood alcohol level of 0.12% were over 30 times more likely to get into a serious accident than someone who’s consumed any amount of cannabis.
 
Researchers conclude that; “The least risky drugs were cannabis and benzodiazepines and Z-drugs.”
 
For the study, researchers collected case samples from “severely injured drivers of passenger cars or vans in selected hospitals in various regions of the countries [Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Lithuania and the Netherlands]. Control samples (N = 15,832) were sampled in a uniform sampling scheme stratified according to country, time, road type and season. Relative risks were approximated by odds ratios and calculated by logistic regression. The estimates were adjusted for age, gender and country.”
 
This research helps to validate a number of past studies which have found that cannabis doesn’t decrease driver safety, and may in fact increase driving performance for certain people.
 
The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Copenhagen’s Department of Forensic Medicine, and the Technical University of Denmark’s Department of Transport.
