NFL Player DeAndre Levy Speaks Out In Support Of Medical Marijuana Reform

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, June, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

deandre levy marijuanaNFL player Eugene Monroe, who plays for the Baltimore Ravens, has been on a mission to change the NFL’s harmful policy on marijuana. I say it’s harmful because marijuana prohibition in the NFL is limiting the forms of treatment and medicines that players can use. Instead of being able to use medical marijuana, which is now legal in 25 states (many of which have an NFL team), players are pressured into using harmful painkillers that often lead to addiction, are harmful to a person’s body, and often times aren’t effective.

That’s not to say that if a player wants to avoid using medical marijuana, and prefers painkillers, that they can’t use them. I’m not advocating for allowing medical marijuana, but prohibiting other medicine in the process. What I’m saying, and what I hear Eugene Monroe saying, is that players should be able to choose for themselves. There should be no taboo when it comes to cannabis, and considering the promising research that is already out there, the NFL should be at the forefront of cannabis research to see how it can help players.

That message appears to resonate with at least one other current NFL player. DeAndre Levy, who plays for the Detroit Lions, had the following to say about medical marijuana research for NFL players, per Detroit Free Press:

Voter Suppression Under Investigation in Emerald Triangle

Category: News | Posted on Sat, June, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

The California Attorney General’s Office sent a team to the Emerald Triangle's Siskiyou County in the prelude to the June 7 primary election, following reports of armed men from the sheriff's department intimidating members of the county's Hmong community—including menacing some at gunpoint.

Sheriff Jon Lopey said the deputies were mobilized as part of an investigation into voter fraud, and had to be armed because of rifle-toting cannabis growers in the areas. But the investigation seems to have exclusively targeted Hmong residents—some of whom were falsely informed that it is illegal for them to vote.

Minnesota: Do You Or Does Someone You Know Suffer From PTSD?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, June, 10th 2016 by THCFinder

PTSD is a brutal thing to deal with. Those that suffer should be allowed to use medical marijuana if it works for them. If you live in Minnesota, do your part and contact your elected officials and urge them to push for adding PTSD to the list of conditions that qualify for Minnesota’s medical marijuana program. See the legislative alert that I received below:

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a life-threatening illness that can cause anguish and biochemical changes in the brain. Sufferers have found that medical marijuana can alleviate the effects of this disorder and help patients lead healthier lives, yet Minnesota’s medical marijuana program does not include PTSD on the list of approved disorders. Luckily, the law established the floor and not the ceiling for the program, which is why right now the Department of Health is accepting petitions for additional conditions as well as for new delivery methods.

MPP is partnering up with local allies to submit petitions to add PTSD as a qualifying condition and marijuana flowers as a delivery method. We need patients who suffer from the disorder to get in touch with us and join our petition. We are also seeking doctors who have experience with PTSD or who would like their patients to be able to use marijuana in its natural form. If this sounds like your physician — or if you are a supportive physician — please connect with us and get involved. Petitions must be in by the end of July, so the clock is ticking!
