New York Health Officials Deny Additional Qualified Conditions for Failing Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, January, 12th 2016 by THCFinder

New York recently launched its ultra-restrictive medical marijuana program for patients suffering from “severe, debilitating, or life-threatening” conditions, but so far there are no signs that state officials are eager to expand the program to service a wider spectrum of patients.

On Monday, Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker announced that he would not allow patients with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Alzheimer’s disease, muscular dystrophy, dystonia, and rheumatoid arthritis to participate in the medical marijuana program because he does not believe there is enough scientific evidence to prove that cannabis can be an effective treatment for these conditions.

In accordance with state law, the New York Health Department was given a year and a half to consider the five proposed qualified conditions and make a determination as to whether patients with these ailments should be given access to medical marijuana. Officials reportedly pulled in a legion of health and science experts to examine several pieces of research pertaining to marijuana as a viable treatment option, but ultimately they concluded that more evidence was needed before they would be willing to move forward.

Oregon's new list of pesticides OK for marijuana means changes for some growers

Category: News | Posted on Mon, January, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

Oregon on Monday issued a list of more than 250 pesticides cannabis growers may be able to use on their crops.

The list represents the first clear guidance from Oregon agriculture officials on what chemicals the state's marijuana industry may use to defeat mites, mold, mildew and other common pests and problems. Top state agriculture officials made clear that the list is a "starting spot" for marijuana growers, who still have to follow pesticide labels.

Lauren Henderson, assistant director of the agency, said regulators combed through more than 12,000 pesticides registered with the state to see which had labels broad enough to include cannabis. Ultimately, the agency came up with about 250 products. The list will be reviewed quarterly, said Henderson.
