6 face charges following medical marijuana raids

Category: News | Posted on Wed, March, 19th 2014 by THCFinder
charges-mj-raidsSix people have been charged following raids last June on three medical marijuana dispensaries in southern Michigan that authorities said were operating illegally.
 
The Calhoun County prosecutor issued warrants Friday in the Springfield raids and Michigan State Police have begun to make arrests.
 
Chief Assistant Prosecutor Matt Smith told the Battle Creek Enquirer that the warrants were issued for employees and owners of The Karmacy and two other dispensaries. Charges include delivery of marijuana and possession with intent to deliver.
 
Bruce Leach, a lawyer representing Karmacy owner Kiel Howland, said his client surrendered on Monday and he’s confident that Howland will be exonerated. All three dispensaries were licensed by the city of Springfield and Leach said Karmacy earlier was inspected by law enforcement.
 
“Everything was completely legal,” Leach said. “This is a little ridiculous. They are not criminals but they are being turned into criminals.”
 
Michigan voters approved marijuana use for some chronic medical conditions in 2008, but the legality of dispensaries has been thrown into doubt by court rulings.
 
The charges follow the raids by the state police and the Southwest Enforcement Team on June 26 at the three dispensaries and homes of owners in Kalamazoo and Barry counties. If convicted, possible penalties range from maximums of four years to seven years behind bars.

Medical marijuana bill advances in Maryland

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, March, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
mmj-advances-in-marylandThe Maryland House of Delegates approved legislation Monday intended to make it possible for patients to use medical marijuana, which was legalized last year but remains unavailable in the state.
 
Delegates voted 127 to 9 to allow “certified physicians” to discuss the option of medical marijuana with patients and then recommend its use. Those patients or their caregivers could obtain a 30-day supply from a licensed grower. The legislation now heads to the Senate, where approval is expected.
 
The bill was one of dozens approved by the House on Monday during a marathon meeting ahead of a “crossover” deadline, after which legislation that has not been approved by either the House or the Senate has longer odds of being passed before the legislative session ends in early April.
 
Delegates also voted in favor of expanding pre-kindergarten classes to include more children, providing more oversight of the implementation of new education standards and “shielding” certain criminal records from the public record with the aim of making it easier for former convicts to get jobs.
 
The Senate convened Monday evening with its own full agenda that included bills that would boost annual tax credits given to movie and television companies that film in the state and require restaurants to urge patrons to alert their servers about any known food allergies the customers have before their orders are taken.

Inhaled Marijuana Mitigates Parkinsons Disease Symptoms

Inhaling whole-plant cannabis provides symptomatic relief in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD), according to observational trial data published in the March/April edition of the journal Clinical Neuropharmacology. Parkinson’s is a progressive disorder of the central nervous system that results in tremor, slowed movement, and muscle rigidity.
 
Investigators at Tel Aviv University, Department of Neurology evaluated Parkinson’s disease symptoms in 22 patients at baseline and 30-minutes after inhaling cannabis.
 
Researchers reported that inhaled cannabis was associated with “significant improvement after treatment in tremor, rigidity, and bradykinsea (slowness of movement). There was also significant improvement of sleep and pain scores. No significant adverse effects of the drug were observed.”
 
They concluded: “[T]his observational study is the first to report an amelioration of both motor and non-motor symptoms in patients with PD treated with cannabis. The study opens new venues for treatment strategies in PD especially in patients refractory to current medications.”
 
Israel has formally allowed for the licensed production and distribution of the substance for therapeutic purposes since 2011.
