Florida mom to treat child with medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, September, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
florida-mom-to-treat-child-with-medical-cannabisTAMPA – A Bay area mother will start treating her cancer-ravaged daughter with whole plant medical marijuana even though we are two months away from the amendment two vote.
 
10 Newstold you earlier this year how Moriah Barnhart sought legal counsel to somehow get her daughter access to use medical cannabis under Florida's medical necessity doctrine based on a 1991 ruling.
 
Barnhart said she had success while treating her daughter with cannabis in Colorado, but decided to move back to Florida to be closer to family and her support system.
 
In Jenks v. The State of Florida, the court ruled that patients suffering debilitating diseases have the right to consume, possess and cultivate marijuana, provided they can establish they have a legal medical necessity.
 
Recently, Barnhart and Christopher Ralph from Health Law Services in Jacksonville shows us the paperwork issued by a physician who evaluated Dahlia Barnhart and deemed medical marijuana a necessity.
 
"I'm not in any way shape or form uneasy about the law," said Barnhart. "The process for me is easy with regards to the paperwork."
 
According to Ralph, she will have to carry the paperwork with her at all times.
 
It includes information from the doctor, details on the Jenks v. State of Florida ruling and an identification number for law enforcement to verify its authenticity via a website.
 
"Our statutes allow for a physician to order the use of a schedule one controlled substance," said Ralph.
 
Earlier this year, state lawmakers legalized a non-euphoric strain of marijuana called Charlotte's Web.
 
Ralph says for that reason, he is not in full support of amendment two.
 
"Once amendment 2 passes, all we're going to have is low-THC cannabis run by 5 organizations throughout the state," he said. "Which was preempted by our current legislature… that's what they did because they didn't want amendment 2 to pass."

Lemon Kush - Hybrid

Lemon Kush is an amazing strain known for excellent flavors, especially when grown organically. The breeder remains mysterious, but there is nothing to be questioned about these dense, frosted buds that provide a long-lasting, lung-destroying high. This bud is a cross of Master Kush and Lemon Joy, providing a potent indica-dominant effect.

medical-mj-for-illinois-residents
EAST ALTON, Ill. - The state of Illinois is taking another big step in medical marijuana this week. Tuesday is the first day residents can apply for a medical marijuana card.
 
Noel Carter is a mother of a four-year-old boy and engaged to be married. She suffers from Fibromyalgia and depression and is hoping with medical marijuana she can give her son the childhood he deserves. Right now her life as a mom and fiancée is plagued with prescriptions.
 
"The Fibromyalgia, it makes it to where it's hard to function there's just a lot of pain and it makes you have exhaustion," Carter said.
 
She suffered from the painful disease for eight years along with depression and doesn't like to rely on medications to get her through, for fear of addiction.
 
"I have to kind of have that mom power and the adrenaline to keep up with my child to help keep going because I know he needs me to be the best mom I can be," she said.
 
Now, as a resident of Illinois, she will be able to apply for a medical marijuana.
 
Listed on the Illinois Department of Public Health's website is a list of conditions that make a patient eligible. Fibromyalgia is listed, but not depression.
 
"I'm definitely not the worst case out there, there's so many people suffering from cancer and HIV that this can be so beneficial and let them live their lives," she said.
 
The application is not yet posted on the state's website nor are the requirements necessary to apply. All of that will be up Tuesday morning for residents.
 
Carter says there may be red tape to go through but it's worth it.
 
"It's going to be a long process and you have to go through your different doctor and get different documentations and proof," says Carter.
 
If she's not approved, she says she will continue on with her life the way it is.
 
Tuesday September 2, 2014 residents with last names starting with letters A - L can apply. Then on November 1, 2014 all other residents last names M - Z can apply. It will take about 45 days to get your card or be denied, but don't forget dispensaries and cultivation centers still aren't open.

Legalized Pot May Lead to Fewer Drug Overdoses

Medical Marijuana may lead to fewer drug overdoses, according to a recent study.
 
Researchers found that after states that have legalized medical marijuana deaths associated with the use of opiate drugs decreased dramatically. They argue that states that have decriminalized medical marijuana saw nearly a 25 percent decline in overdose deaths from opiates and similar painkillers between 1999 and 2010, News-press.com reported.
 
Investigators believe people suffering from chronic pains tend to rely on medical marijuana when they have that option, which reduces the risk of addiction and overdose that accompanies use of prescription pain medication.
 
"We think that people with chronic pain may be choosing to treat their pain with marijuana rather than with prescription painkillers, in states where this is legal," Dr. Marcus Bachhuber, lead author of the study and a researcher with the Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion at the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center, told HealthDay.
 
For the study, researchers collected and analyzed data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to determine the narcotic medication overdose death rate for each state between 1999 and 2010, and then took into account whether and when each state had passed a medical marijuana law.
 
According to the CDC, overdose deaths from prescription painkillers have skyrocketed over the past two decades, increasing 118 percent between 1999 and 2011.
 
Although overdose deaths have risen in all states, researchers found that the annual average number of deaths caused by painkillers is nearly 25 percent less in states with medical marijuana laws.
 
"In absolute terms, states with a medical marijuana law had about 1,700 fewer opioid painkiller overdose deaths in 2010 than would be expected based on trends before the laws were passed," Bachhuber said.
 
Researchers said further investigation is required to determine how medical cannabis laws may interact with policies aimed at preventing opioid analgesic overdose.
