Medical Marijuana For Kids: Why I Give Cannabis To My 7-Year-Old
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, July, 18th 2013 by THCFinder
With news stories and opinion pieces popping up daily about medical marijuana legalization, dad Brandon Krenzler and his 7-year-old daughter, MyKayla Comstock, appeared on HuffPost Live this week to discuss what happens when a minor needs the drug. MyKayla has Leukemia and started taking it shortly after she was diagnosed.
Currently, medical marijuana is legal in 18 states and in Washington D.C. However, as Valerie Vande Panne wrote in the Boston Globe, many parents are afraid to ask their children's doctors for the drug, despite support from lawmakers.
In a heartbreaking piece, HuffPost blogger Suzanne Leigh, a mother who lost her own child to cancer, spoke about some of the anxiety she felt around the issue. Ultimately, Leigh decided to buy marijuana for her 11-year-old, but she knew other moms and dads who would never consider using it to help their children with cancer.
In the clip above, Krenzler says that when MyKayla was first diagnosed, cancer affected her in ways that were "terrifying."
"She was very sick, she was in a lot of pain ... she was basically experiencing everything you wouldn't want your daughter to experience," he says.
MyKayla adds that she was "really tired" all of the time. But now, she feels better.

Rules change on Olympic marijuana testing
Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 18th 2013 by THCFinder
It's been 15 years since Ross Rebagliati won snowboarding's first Olympic gold medal at the 1998 Winter Games — and then nearly lost that medal after he tested positive for marijuana.
Since then, the drug has become an integral part of Rebagliati's life. Next month Rebagliati will open a medicinal marijuana dispensary in Whistler, British Columbia, called "Ross' Gold." The Canadian has also become a public face for pot-smoking athletes around the globe.
"Anytime somebody gets in trouble for weed I'm the guy the media calls," Rebagliati, who lives outside Whistler, told USA TODAY Sports. "I went on NBC to defend (Michael) Phelps for smoking responsibly. I told them, Hey, it's zero calories, zero fat!'"
Now 42, Rebagliati believes that changing attitudes toward marijuana — it's now legal for medicinal purposes in Canada and 14 U.S. states — justifies the drug's removal from the World Anti-Doping Agency's list of banned substances.
Like cocaine and heroin, cannabis is banned during competition by WADA, which oversees drug testing worldwide in Olympic sports.
WADA recently amended its rules on cannabis, raising the threshold for a positive test from 15 nanograms per milliliter to 150 ng/ml. In 1998 at the Nagano Games, Rebagliati recorded a level of 17.8 ng/ml, and argued the test resulted from second-hand smoke, which he still says. Ben Nichols, a spokesperson for WADA, said the raising of the threshold is meant to catch only athletes who smoke during the period of a competition. The drug isn't prohibited out of competition.
