D.C. Medical Marijuana Legalized, But Doctors Not Yet Authorized To Recommend Pot

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, June, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
WASHINGTON -- The owner of the Takoma Wellness Center, former Rabbi Jeffrey Kahn, told The Huffington Post in May that he hoped his D.C. medical marijuana dispensary would open to customers after Memorial Day weekend.
 
This after telling NBC4 Washington in April that he hoped to open late that month or in early May.
 
Nearby Capital City Care, meanwhile, once estimated an April debut.
 
These two medical marijuana dispensaries have been approved by the city and are ready to open. Three cultivation centers are also raring to go. But the opening for each has continually been pushed back.
 
The hitch? The D.C. Department of Health has yet to give D.C. doctors the authority to recommend medical marijuana to patients, according to the Washington Examiner.
 
District residents approved medical marijuana by referendum in 1998. Twelve years later, the D.C. Council approved medical marijuana, finally moving forward with regulations that would guide the city. But estimates for the opening of dispensaries has continually been pushed back.
 
Dan Riffle, a legislative analyst for the Marijuana Policy Project, told The Huffington Post in May 2012 that dispensaries would likely be open and patients able to purchase marijuana by the end of 2012.
 
So far, not a single door has been opened to patients.

Medical Uses of Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, June, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana has been a hot topic of discussion in recent years: let’s take a look at some of the most frequently asked questions about this alternative treatment

Mother Nature has many effective treatments in her medicine cabinet, but few herbal remedies have generated as much buzz in the media as medical marijuana;

Whilst apothecaries, physicians and medicine men across the ancient world regularly prescribed marijuana to treat their patients’ ailments, the modern medical community is still divided over the medicinal uses of cannabis;

Proponents of cannabis in modern medicine argue that this naturally-occurring substance (or elements derived from it, such as THC) should be openly accepted as a safer alternative to some pharmaceutical drugs.

Indeed, today many professionals practicing in territories where cannabis remains a controlled substance are calling for the legalisation of this herb and its derivatives for medical applications.

Those who oppose the use of medical marijuana often raise the spectre of some potentially harmful side-effects that have been linked to cannabis use.

With both of these viewpoints in mind, let’s take a look at some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this controversial crop:

What conditions is medical marijuana used to treat?

The herb cannabis has many wide-ranging effects which have been documented in antiquity, as well as extensively studied by the modern medical community: among other things, medical marijuana can be used to treat:

·         Chronic Pain: Various studies have shown that cannabis can make for a potent treatment which can help patients suffering from chronic pain to effectively manage their symptoms.

·         Multiple Sclerosis (MS): Trials into MS treatment using cannabinoids have focussed upon the relaxing, anti-spasmodic properties locked within marijuana, as well as its analgesic effects.

·         Glaucoma: Cannabis has been used in the treatment of patients with glaucoma, with some studies showing that even a small percentage of THC can reduce intra-ocular pressure by a significant amount (in some cases, by as much as ¼).

·         Alzheimer’s disease: Modern studies have shown that cannabinoids may be helpful in slowing down, or even preventing the onset of many symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s, with some of the properties inherent in THC helping the brain in a number of effective ways – in some cases, outperforming mainstream drug treatments.

·         Cancer: Modern research in the fight against cancer has shown that cannabis can be a useful tool in combatting breast and brain cancers, in some cases helping to prevent metastasis or even bringing about the death of cancer cells by making them essentially ‘cannibalise’ each other.

·         HIV: The pain-relieving and appetite-stimulating properties of cannabis have been shown to help HIV and AIDS patients to manage their symptoms, especially when the herb is combined with other treatments.

What are the beneficial properties of using marijuana as a treatment?

Aside from the wide range of conditions which cannabis has been shown to be effective in treating, the herb also provides a number of interesting health benefits:

·         Cannabis possesses effective analgesic properties, which can make it a potentially safer alternative to some opiate-based painkillers.

·         The relaxing effects of the herb can help to improve a person’s sleep.

·         It has been shown to slow down some of the effects of aging on the brain.

·         As an effective expectorant, cannabis can useful for treating certain respiratory conditions.

·         It can stimulate the appetite and reduce nausea.

Are there side effects of using marijuana to treat medical conditions?

When compared with commercially available pharmaceutical drugs, cannabis has been shown to be a relatively safe treatment: there are no published cases of any human fatalities as a result of cannabis poisoning, which, sadly, cannot be said about many legal drugs on the market;

Despite the positive effects of cannabis in treating medical conditions, the herb can lead to some potentially harmful side effects:

·         It can lead to increased heart rate, which can pose a risk to older patients, or those with heart conditions.

·         Much like alcohol, cannabis can impair a person’s ability to drive, meaning that users of medical marijuana shouldn’t get behind the wheel when under the influence of the herb.

·         A person’s mood can be affected: cannabis can produce anything from a pleasant calming sensation, to tense anxiety.

·         Respiratory conditions can be exasperated, especially when medical marijuana is consumed by smoking: such a delivery method can also pose similar risks to inhaling tobacco-smoke, including an increased risk of developing certain kinds of cancer. 

·         Whilst studies show that it not as addictive as tobacco or alcohol, long-term use of marijuana can lead to addiction.

The Starbucks of Pot

Category: News | Posted on Mon, June, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
Jamen Shively tore a page right out of the Starbucks handbook on Thursday. At a press conference, the former Microsoft manager announced plans to open chain stores offering a uniform, high-end product that satisfies America's craving for a mild buzz. Except not coffee--pot.
 
"Yes, we are Big Marijuana," Shively, 45, brazenly told reporters, outlining his intent to bring in $100 million in investments to establish "the most recognized brand in an industry that does not exist yet." Colorado and Washington, the two states that legalized marijuana for recreational use last fall, are slated to soon license pot growers, distributors, and retail outlets (and impose steep taxes and strict regulations). Shively says he and his partners plan about a dozen retail outlets in each state, followed by up to 100 in California, where sales of medical marijuana are legal according to state law.
 
Shively's plan will test how far entrepreneurs can push the new state laws legalizing pot before the Department of Justice charges them with federal crimes. Shively is shrugging off the risk. "People are saying, 'You are putting a target on your back,' but it's really not a big deal," he said.
 
Attorney General Eric Holder is the person who will prove Shively right or wrong. Holder said in February that the White House would make a decision "soon" about how to respond to the voter-approved pot laws. Since then, Holder told a House Appropriations subcommittee, "We are certainly going to enforce federal law," but stopped short of saying he would try to overturn state laws in court. Holder's Department of Justice could also prosecute marijuana sellers in Washington and Colorado, as DOJ has done to some medical-marijuana growers. Mostly, though, the Obama administration has so far targeted growers and sellers who are exceeding the limits of state laws.
