Pot brownies not 'usable' under Michigan's medical marijuana law, appeals court rules

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-browniesLANSING -- Baked goods and other food containing THC, marijuana's active ingredient, are not "usable marijuana" under Michigan's medical marijuana law unless they contain actual plant material, an appeals court has ruled.
 
However, registered medical marijuana patients who possess THC-laced foods may still be able to claim immunity from prosecution under a different section of the law.
 
The ruling comes in a case centering on a January 27, 2011 traffic stop in Oakland County. Police charged Earl Cantrell Chambers with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver after a search of his car revealed "marijuana found in various locations within the vehicle, including mason jars, plastic bags, and a binder of plastic pouches, as well as containers of brownies that were individually labeled to indicate the weight of the brownie and content of medical marijuana," according to the Michigan Court of Appeals opinion issued Thursday.
 
Chambers also had "packaging materials, including Glad zipper bags, labels, price labels, plastic portion cup lids, a vacuum sealer, and a grinder," the opinion states, and paperwork indicating sales had been made to a list of people.
 
When arrested, Chambers presented both a medical marijuana identification card, a caregiver certificate and applications for four patients. Chambers was tried and convicted of possession with intent to deliver and sentenced to 33 days in jail and three years of probation.
 
On appeal, Chambers argued he should have been allowed to claim immunity under Section 4 of the medical marijuana law, which protects patients from prosecution if they possess no more than 2.5 ounces of "usable marijuana" and protects caregivers if they possess that amount for each registered patient.

Joint Effort: Washington Brewers Release Hemp Beer to Celebrate Marijuana Legalization

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
hemp-beer-joint-effortSEATTLE, WA – Redhook Brewery, the Northwest’s original craft brew, announced today the release of  “Joint Effort,” a new hemp beer brewed in collaboration with Seattle’s Hilliard’s Beer that celebrates the legalization of marijuana in Washington State.
 
The relationship between the two breweries began with a Ballard bar-hopping trip down memory lane for Redhook’s brewing team. The area where it all started for Redhook in 1981 has since become known as the “Redhook District” and is a haven for beer lovers with a number of notable breweries opening and thriving. Among those is Hilliard’s Beer, founded in October 2011 by Ryan Hilliard and Adam Merkl.
 
“We have a real appreciation for the brewing energy in Ballard right now. Thirty years ago Redhook was exactly where guys like Hilliard’s, Reuben’s Brews and Populuxe are today,” said Karmen Olson, Redhook Brand Manager. “We’re stoked to be working with our friends at Hilliard’s and to raise a pint to our Emerald City heritage.”
 
Joint Effort is a session ale brewed with hemp seeds. Dry-hopped with Zeus, Cascade, Summit hops, Joint Effort has a dank, resinous hop aroma balanced by nutty, earthiness from hemp seeds. It’s the perfect brew for hanging with your buds, grabbing some munchies and enjoying a beer. ABV 5.6%, IBU 25.
 
“We’re really excited to release Joint Effort with Redhook because we have a lot of respect for how they helped shape craft beer in Washington,” said Hilliard’s Beer co-founder Ryan Hilliard. “It’s the first collaboration beer either of us has done with another brewery and it’s fitting they started in Ballard a few blocks from where we are. Voting to legalize marijuana use in Washington is another example of the pioneering spirit that makes this state so great.”

Marijuana May Make Us Thinner, Even with the Munchies

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
getting-thinnerIt sounds counter-intuitive, but marijuana may help people be thinner. The illegal drug known for causing the munchies was at the heart of a recent study (published in May's Journal of American Medicine) that examined its effect on metabolic processes. The results, though certainly not conclusive, show a correlation between smaller waist circumference and marijuana use. Not only were users thinner, but they also appeared to be healthier overall than those who have never used marijuana. 
 
 In the study, comprising of more than 4,600 people, 12 percent of participants said they were current marijuana users and 42 percent had used it in the past, but not in the last month. Scientists assessed waist circumference and other weight-related factors in all participants. Studies conducted before this one had shown that marijuana users had lower prevalence for diabetes and obesity. However, this was the first study to also test insulin and glucose levels and insulin resistance in regards to marijuana usage.
