Medical Marijuana for Pets

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, April, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
Medical marijuana (also known as THC) for pets makes perfect sense to me. California veterinarian Dr. Doug Kramer is seeking to have medical marijuana legalized for pets.
 
As I understand it medical marijuana offers relief to pressure from glaucoma and helps people suffering from pain, lack of appetite and nausea related to cancers, and other illnesses - also to assist with end of life. Also, for people, one beneficial outcome of the weed is that it helps to relieve stress related to illness.  Our pets do feel pain as we feel pain, so therefore, pain relief is essential. And for pets, end of life can even be scheduled. And when ill, our pets do sometimes get very anxious.
 
There are problems with these ideas. First, not sure how to teach pets to smoke. And brownies are out of the questions, since chocolate is dangerous to pets (though carob brownies would do the trick!).
 
More seriously, though in theory I do believe it is a really good idea - there may be the same beneficial affect of medicinal marijuana  for pets, to my knowledge there have been no clinical trials. Many drugs have the absolute same affect for pets as people, however, some do not- and even prove dangerous. And what would the dosage be? Another concern is if THC was made available for say the dog in the family, who's to say the teenagers in the family - or for that matter adults - won't use it too.
 
Kramer, though argues that THC helped his own dog. Kramer is correct to say that not all pets respond to pain relief or appetite stimulants.

Bill outlawing marijuana pipes headed to Fla. Gov.

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida lawmakers have wrapped up work on legislation aimed at outlawing the sale of marijuana pipes known as "bongs."
 
The Senate passed the bill (HB 49) on a 31-2 vote Friday. The measure now goes to Gov. Rick Scott for his consideration.
 
State law currently allows certain retailers to sell the pipes. Any sale of marijuana pipes would be a first-degree misdemeanor if the bill becomes law. Second and subsequent violations would jump to a third-degree felony.
 
Supporters say the bill sends a message against illegal drug use by making the pipes inaccessible at stores that often are close to schools.
 
Sen. Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth, voted against the bill. He argued that marijuana isn't a dangerous drug and should be allowed under strict regulation.

Judge orders police to return mans Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, April, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
TACOMA, Wash. -- Police in Tacoma could soon be in real trouble over pot.
 
The department could be found in contempt if they continue to refuse to return a small amount of marijuana seized from a man after a traffic stop. Municipal Court Judge Jack Emery repeated an order to police Thursday to return the drug to Joseph L. Robertson within seven days or they could be found in contempt.
 
"Appeal or comply," Emery told assistant city attorney John Walker. "Or next week, show up, and I would advise you to bring counsel."
 
The judge first ordered police to return the drug on Feb. 28, but they have refused, The News Tribune reported Friday (http://bit.ly/10hwiD9).
 
It was seized in May of last year when an officer pulled over the Tacoma man for speeding. He was cited for driving without a license and misdemeanor marijuana possession. Prosecutors dismissed the drug charge in December, after state voters decided to legalize small amounts of the drug.
 
Robertson then asked for his pot back, and provided proof of medical marijuana authorization. The city refused, which led to Emery's Feb. 28 order. If the matter is not settled by the May 2 hearing, it could go to higher courts.
