Marijuana usage won't disqualify U.S. vets for healthcare

Category: News | Posted on Fri, May, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
war-vets-and-cannabisDENVER — War veterans in Colorado seeking relief in the form of legal marijuana will not face any resistance from the Veterans Administration Eastern Colorado Healthcare System, a spokesperson confirmed on Wednesday.
 
“Use of state-approved marijuana does not disqualify a veteran for healthcare, and it will not result in any sort of retaliation or denial of services,” VA spokesperson Dan Warvi said in an interview with FOX31 Denver.
 
Warvi’s statement squashed long-running speculation that veteran’s might have their federal health plans revoked if any marijuana was found in their system, considering the drug is still illegal at a federal level.
 
Trying to dissuade those fears, Warvi urged vets that VA doctors in fact want them to disclose any marijuana usage, as some prescribed medications can react violently with THC, the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.
 
“We want to sit down with veterans and say, ‘Look, you told us you’re on this. What can we do for you now? We want to help you get better.’” Warvi said.
 
That was apparently big news for a growing number of veterans, who say marijuana can ease the pain of injuries and post traumatic stress disorder.
 
On Thursday, a day after Warvi’s interview with FOX31 Denver, Roger Martin said he got an avalanche of interest in his nonprofit, Grow4Vets, which offers free marijuana to veterans, along with equipment to grow marijuana plants.
 
Martin started Grow4Vets to offer a way to get around medical marijuana requirements that have restricted veterans in the past. He called Warvi’s statement on Wednesday a “watershed moment.”
 
“To have someone from the VA tell veterans in Colorado that they’re not going to lose their benefits if they use medical marijuana, it was huge,” Martin said. “We had over 300 veterans contact us by email and sign up online for our program after they heard your interview with the VA.”

Football Hall Of Famer Applies For Medical Marijuana Dispensary License

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Fri, May, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
hall-of-famer-applies-for-mj-dispensary-licenseJonathan Ogden, retired Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle, has applied for a medical marijuana dispensary license in Nevada, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. There are a limited number of licenses available in Nevada, so it is still unclear whether or not Ogden will own a dispensary.
 
One hundred and nine other companies have filed applications, and only 66 will be licensed this year, 40 of which will reside in Las Vegas (Clark county) where Ogden has applied. Applicants must also show they have $250,000 in liquid assets and have a licensed physician as the medical director to apply.
 
Hopefully, the NFL will feel the pressure of having Hall of Fame leaders like Ogden publicly support medical marijuana. The NFL’s stance on medical marijuana hasn’t evolved to the same extent as that of the nation at large, and the organization still imposes strict laws on players via steep fines and suspensions. However, with the NBA and NCAA rethinking their marijuana-use policies, perhaps, the NFL will move in the direction of acceptance.

South Jersey's sole marijuana dispensary finds patients scarce

Only six months after a grand opening, South Jersey's sole medical marijuana dispensary is struggling to survive.
 
This spring, Compassionate Care Foundation was planning to triple its production, using a $357,000 loan from the state Economic Development Authority. Simultaneously, the dispensary was preparing to convert cannabis leaves into liquid medicine, transdermal lotions, and lozenges, according to Bill Thomas, the nonprofit's CEO.
 
About 100 pounds of the leaves sit in brown grocery bags at the dispensary, waiting to be sent to a manufacturing plant in Pennsauken to be turned into the new products.
 
But where are the patients?
 
Located just outside Atlantic City, the dispensary has but 600, who currently can get only marijuana buds. The number is far short of what he needs to pay bills and support an expansion, Thomas said. For now, the $357,000 project to expand growing space is on hold.
 
When the nonprofit applied for one of six dispensary licenses offered three years ago by the state Department of Health, Compassionate Care projected it would have 5,000 patients upon opening and 10,000 in its second year. "Our cultivation facility has the capability of servicing up to 20,000 patients at two ounces per month," its bid said.
 
But so far, only 2,200 patients statewide have registered to buy cannabis.
 
Many patients complain that the application and doctor approval process takes three months, on average, and is too cumbersome for the program to succeed, Thomas said.
 
Patients also report they spend about $1,000 on doctor visits and registration "before they even get in the door" of the dispensary, he said.
 
Because of marijuana's uncertain status - it is still illegal under federal law - insurance does not cover the visits.
 
Nor does it cover the cost of the drug, about $400 an ounce.
