Several Michigan Medical Marijuana Patients Surrender to Federal Authorities to Serve Lengthy Prison Sentences

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, May, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
Detroit, MI—(ENEWSPF)—May 27, 2013. Several Michigan medical marijuana patients and caregivers are being forced to surrender to federal authorities over the next few days to serve out lengthy prison terms, after being convicted in federal court without any opportunity to defend themselves on medical necessity or state law grounds. Some defendants went to trial while others pleaded guilty when they saw no opportunity to defend their actions under state law. Advocates are staging a press conference at the federal courthouse in Detroit on Tuesday at Noon at the Theodore Levin U.S. Courthouse, 231 W. Lafayette Blvd., to draw attention to the Obama Administration's ongoing imprisonment of state lawful medical marijuana patients and providers.
 
53-year-old Michigan medical marijuana patient Jerry Duval, a kidney-pancreas transplant patient with coronary artery disease and a strict medication regimen, was sentenced earlier this year to 10 years in prison and will be surrendering to FMC Devens in Ayer, Massachusetts on June 11th. Duval will be filing a Compassionate Release Request this week, urging the the Bureau of Prisons to consider his extraordinary and compelling circumstances. Three other Michigan cultivators, Dennis Forsberg, 59, his son Lance Forsberg, 32, and Ryan Basore, 36, who were sentenced to 3-4 years in prison will be self-surrendering to FCI Morgantown in West Virginia on May 30th.
 
"Jerry Duval and his 10-year sentence is emblematic of how the Obama Administration has been undermining state medical marijuana laws, while persecuting patients who are in no way violating state law," said Steph Sherer, Executive Director with Americans for Safe Access, which is hosting Tuesday's press conference. "President Obama and Attorney General Holder must start owning up to the unnecessary torment they're forcing not only cultivators, but thousands of patients, to endure."

Green Crack Cannabis

Category: Nugs | Posted on Mon, May, 27th 2013 by THCFinder

Green Crack - Sativa

Green Crack was originally bred in Athens, GA in the 1970s with the birth name of Cush. It was later renamed "Green Crack" by none other than Snoop Dogg because of its extreme potency and the crave to keep smoking it. Green Crack is extremely popular in Southern California with both medical marijuana patients for its strong sativa effects, and recreational users who love its sweet taste and happy high. Green Crack has a medium-green color punctuated with orange and bluish hairs. It has a tangy, fruity smell (thus the nickname "Mango") and the taste is sweet as well. There are two strains of Green Crack: one that is almost pure Sativa and one that is 75% Indica. The better known phenom is the sativa dominant strain, and the only sign of indica genetics being present are the tight nugs.

L.A.'s New Mayor Is OK With Legalizing Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, May, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
Los Angeles City Councilman Eric Garcetti, who was elected mayor last week on the same day that voters approved a cap on the number of medical marijuana dispensaries in L.A., says he would be OK with legalizing the plant for general use:
 
During a short interview with Univision's Jorge Ramos on Sunday, Garcetti was asked if he thought pot use should be legalized for  casual use....
 
Marijuana was important for medicinal use, he said. "But if in the future, California's voters want it for casual use, for me, it's not a problem."
 
He went on to suggest that enforcement of marijuana laws was diverting law enforcement from more important tasks.
 
"I want to use the police department's resources for more serious crimes, but they are usually tied up in these crimes that aren't as important," Garcetti said. "Still, it would need to be decided by a state-wide vote."

Medical marijuana helps senior sleep, contend with other problems of aging

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, May, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
Before Cherie Scott goes to sleep every night, the 86-year-old has a sweet bedtime snack: a marijuana cookie.
 
With her chic bob hairstyle and tweed blazer, Scott — who prefers to be addressed as “Mrs. Scott” — doesn’t exactly fit the stoner stereotype. Admittedly, before she tried it, she was totally against the drug.
 
“I thought the whole system, it was evil and addictive and you were a little cuckoo with it,” the Burnaby senior told The Province.
 
But when she found herself in a dire situation, unable to sleep after her husband died of lung cancer in 1980, Scott said she was desperate for relief. Fearing she would become addicted to sleeping pills, Scott’s son suggested she try marijuana.
 
Mitch D’Kugener, who has a doctor’s prescription, smoked pot to alleviate symptoms of his attention deficit disorder and arthritis pain, and he thought it might also help his mom.
 
“Now she’s having the best sleep that she’s had in the last 30 years,” he said. “Her quality of life has improved.”
