In Utah, it's your marijuana prescription or your concealed gun

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, July, 25th 2013 by THCFinder
guns-n-weed-Medical marijuana and concealed firearms are gaining in popularity, but in Utah, they’re in conflict.
 
Utah, complying with the federal Gun Control Act, denies or revokes concealed-carry firearms permits for anyone with a prescription for marijuana. While Utah doesn’t allow marijuana to treat ailments, eight of the 31 states that recognize Utah’s concealed firearms permit do.
 
Jason Chapman, firearms supervisor for the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification, said he can only recall seeing one or two such conflicts, though he added that not every case comes across his desk. In those cases, Chapman said, BCI denied permits to applicants who sent their marijuana prescription card along with their other identification.
 
BCI does not keep records of how many applicants or holders are denied for medical marijuana. BCI, in its regular report on concealed-carry permit violations, lumps those cases into a category labeled "controlled substance."
 
But with Utah’s concealed firearms permit popular among non-Utahns because so many states honor it and medical marijuana gaining acceptance, the issue seems headed for more conflict.
 
There’s no database of people who have a marijuana license to check against and the concealed carry-permit application. But when law enforcement does learn about a marijuana prescription, it’s treated differently than prescription opiates.
 
Utahns with a prescription for other opiates, such as Oxycodone, are not barred from a concealed firearm permit unless they are suspected of abusing the drugs.
 
Salt Lake City defense attorney Chris Salcido, who represents defendants in drug cases, wrote in his firm’s blog earlier this year that marijuana prescriptions should be treated the same as other prescriptions. Salcido did not write specifically about concealed guns.

Should NFL care if Broncos star Von Miller smokes marijuana?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, July, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
nfl-suspension-for-marijuanaOK, call Broncos linebacker Von Miller a knucklehead. If he indeed is suspended four games for use of recreational drugs, Miller has let down his teammates and fans who pay hefty ticket prices to watch Denver play football. The Post has received documentation that Miller had multiple positive tests for marijuana dating back to his rookie season in 2011.
 
But nobody counts marijuana as a performance-enhancing drug. If the NFL has cared so little for so long about the long-term damage caused by concussions, why should the league care how Miller chooses to relax? So long as it doesn’t adversely affect Miller’s performance on the field, I don’t think it should be any of the NFL’s business. Peter Burns of Mile High Sports Radio isn’t so lenient. 
 
From the DUI arrest of front-office executive Matt Russell to Miller’s suspension, pending appeal, is this a serious football issue for the Broncos, or merely an image problem?

Suspensions and bans for athletes using pot should change, activist says

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, July, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
mj-policy-and-athletesBroncos all-pro Von Miller is appealing a four-game suspension, reportedly after testing positive for marijuana (and possibly Molly).
When it comes to pot use, however, a number of major sports organizations are amending their policies related to positive tests -- and Marijuana Policy Project spokesman and Amendment 64 proponent Mason Tvert believes the NFL and other leagues would be well-advised to do the same.
 
"As more and more agencies and officials begin to recognize that marijuana is objectively less harmful than alcohol, they are reconsidering how they treat athletes who use marijuana off the field," Tvert says.
"Obviously, we don't see professional athletes being punished simply for having a beer or a glass of wine on a weekend during the off-season," he continues. "So there's absolutely no reason they should be punished for using a less harmful substance."
 
This isn't a new issue for Tvert. In 2007, when the Miami Dolphins' Ricky Williams applied for reinstatement to the NFL after a marijuana-related suspension, the activist and founder of SAFER (Safer Alternative For Enjoyable Recreation) helped coordinate the placement of a billboard near Mile High Stadium encouraging the running back to sign with Denver.

Beverly Hills"marijuana moms" gather for high class dinner party

The women vaporize the marijuana, which they say gives them the benefits without the smoke. 
 
Parenting and pot may seem like a taboo combination, but a group of Beverly Hills moms swear it is the secret to their success.
 
The Beverly Hills Cannabis Club recently gathered at the home of founder Cheryl Shuman, the self-proclaimed "Martha Stewart of Marijuana," for a non-traditional "pot luck" dinner.
 
Cheryl Shuman, far right, said used cannabis therapy after she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer..
 
The menu included chicken and fettuccine topped with marinara sauce made with cannabis-infused olive oil, as well as garlic bread with cannabis-infused butter.
 
Many of the women who congregated at Shuman's said they used medical marijuana to help them battle chronic pain, cancer and anxiety. They said their goal isn't to get completely stoned, but rather to take the edge off.
 
The women told ABC News that they believe marijuana has made them better mothers.
 
"Cannabis not only made me a better mom. Cannabis made me a better human being," Shuman told ABC News' Elizabeth Vargas.
 
The 53-year-old said that 10 years ago she was desperate for an escape as her marriage fell apart. Taking Prozac in the morning and Xanax at night wasn't doing the job, so her therapist suggested she "smoke a joint."
 
The women dined on cannabis-infused cuisine.
 
"So I took a hit off of it I was smiling and happy and I was like, 'this is really great,'" she said in an interview with ABC News.
 
Shuman claimed she felt better after the puffs than she did from taking the pharmaceuticals. And her daughter said she certainly saw a difference.
 
"I felt like my mom was checked out on prescription pills. It was like living with a zombie. When she would smoke she was smiling. She was connecting with us. It felt like we had our mom back," her daughter, Aimee, said.
