Michigan Authorizes Cannabis For PTSD

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, April, 1st 2014 by THCFinder


Post tramautic stress disorder effects far more people in the world then most people realize. These people have fought for our freedom and the emotional toll of that fight sometimes leaves them needing a powerful medication that not only alleviates their symptoms but also allows them to eat, sleep, and function normally. Although PTSD is recognized as a mental disorder that is treatable by medicine, the states in which medical marijuana has been passed vary on the allowance of PTSD sufferers using cannabis, considering that there is absolutely no doctor recommended medicine designed to treat PTSD. With about eight million Americans suffering from PTSD annually, these people absolutely deserve a medicine that will help them overcome this anxious disorder.

Michigan is taking a step towards allowing PTSD sufferers to ingest cannabis for the disorder. State regulators have agreed to authorize the plant as a recognized therapy for PTSD. Members of the Medical Marihuana Review Panel voted to expand the state's qualifying afflictions list to include post traumatic stress disorder. The inclusion of PTSD is the first time that Michigan has updated the list since the voters passed medical cannabis in 2008.

There are only six other states that recognize PTSD as an affiliation that merits the use of medical marijuana. Connecticut, Oregon, Delaware, Nevada, New Mexico, and Maine all have stated that cannabis is a recognized use in therapy treatments of those suffering from PTSD. In the last year, Nevada, Maine, and Oregon changed their laws to include post traumatic stress disorder. Other medical states haven/t progressed to this point yet, leaving patients with PTSD to deal with their problems illegally, purchasing cannabis from illegal street dealers instead of medical dispensaries.

Michigan's step towards making cannabis more widely available will hopefully lead the way for other states that are on the fence about this matter as well. PTSD can absolutely be helped with cannabis, as the relaxing, anxiety releasing effects of cannabis help sufferers to live more normal and healthy. Especially since this disorder has no medical treatment, other then a regimen of anti-depressants, anti-anxiety, and whatever else the doctors prescribe in order to attempt to "help"

Arizona Supreme Court: Police Must Return Marijuana To California Patient

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 1st 2014 by THCFinder
court-rules-against-policeIn a ruling handed down without comment, Arizona’s Supreme Court has refused to overturn prior court rulings stating that the Yuma County Sheriff must return cannabis that was seized from a California patient. Arizona’s medical cannabis law is one of the only in the country that legally recognizes patients from other states.
The ruling came as a response to a case where Valerie Okun, a qualified medical cannabis patient in California, had cannabis seized by a border patrol agent in Yuma County, in 2011. She was charged with cannabis possession, with the charges eventually being dropped when she provided proof of being a medical cannabis patient. However, police refused to return the seized cannabis, even after a court ruling ordered them to do so.
Now police will be forced to return the lady’s medicine, as the highest court in the state has made their ruling clear (it was Yuma County police that brought the issue to them on appeal).
This ruling will set immediate precedent throughout the state.

The Instabilities Of Drug Dogs

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, April, 1st 2014 by THCFinder
Most people are pretty afraid of the police lately. Even something as simple as a broken tail light is enough to make a driver's heart drop when a cop rolls up behind them at a stop light. Stoners especially are afraid of the red and blue, as not only will a busted blinker get you pulled over but let's be real; some cops are just jerks. They will do whatever they can to get you in trouble, up to and including the involvement of the drug sniffing dogs that some cops tote around with them in their cars. Being stopped for a traffic violation with weed in the car and getting sniffed out by a dog is a terrible experience but due to new information released in a study published on-line at Forensic Science International, it's been announced that the drug sniffing dogs may be much less dependable then previously thought.
The study was done by scientists from both the US as well as Poland and consisted of the drug sniffing dogs being put to the test of accurately locating amphetamines, marijuana, hash, cocaine, and heroin in different scenarios. The dogs were sent to locate the narcotics first in a private room The dogs seemed to do well in this environment, with a rate of correctness around 83% with only 10% being false alerts. Dogs that had previously been in the room seemed to also have a higher success rate then dogs who hadn't as well. The dogs were then put through a re-enactment of a traffic stop in which the car being questioned contained illegal substances.
But when the dogs inspected the vehicles, their success rate dropped drastically. Going from an 83% to a 64% rate of finding the substances hidden, the dogs were much less reliable when it came to traffic stops. When the dogs were lead around the outside of the cars, they only detected narcotics 64% of the time and at least 15% of the dogs didn't even recognize that the contraband was present in the vehicle. Not only that but 22% of the dogs showed that they had indeed found narcotics, when there were no narcotics in the car. This shows how unreliable a traffic stop dog search can be.
The study goes on to cover the dogs that were introduced to the interior of the car. Once inside, the dogs success rate dropped to 58% and the false alerts rose to 36%. So basically, the dogs become more than unreliable when they're put in to a traffic stop scenario. There have been other studies that have been done on the topic as well, such as one that was conducted in 2011 at the University of California that showed that drug sniffing dogs are SIGNIFICANTLY influenced by the feelings of their handler. So if the cop thinks that there are drugs in the car, chances are that the dog will pick up on that and point to the idea of narcotics being present, even when they're not.
In 2005, the United States Supreme Court ruled that if a drug dog alerts an officer of narcotics being present in the vehicle, the officer then has the right to search the interior of the car. But since the dogs are providing false alerts based on their handler's feelings. these searches could absolutely be argued against. But to be on the safe side, it is recommended that you don't drive with cannabis in your car. Just to be on the safe side. We all know that police can abuse their power and while not all officers are out to get us, it's just a better idea to play it safe.
