Publix Heiress Donates $800K to Fight Medical Marijuana in Florida

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, July, 28th 2016 by THCFinder

In an effort to defeat Florida’s medical marijuana ballot initiative, the Drug Free Florida Committee has ramped up its fundraising, reportedly raising $805,000 between July 9 and July 15. The bulk of this money came from one contributor—the family that founded beloved supermarket chain Publix.

According to a recently filed financial disclosure, the Carol Jenkins Barnett Family Trust donated $800,000 to Drug Free Florida, a group opposed to Amendment 2, which would allow doctors to prescribe medicinal cannabis for certain debilitating illnesses.

CAPM is the official state specialty society for California physicians practicing in the fields of Preventive Medicine and Public Health.

“Proposition 64 is a thoughtful, comprehensive measure based on sound evidence-based science that will protect public health and fund vital health programs for California’s youth,” said Dr. Donald Lyman, Legislative Director for CAPM.

Bernie Sanders Supporters Walk A 51-Foot Joint Through Philadelphia

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, July, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

The Democratic National Convention started in Philadelphia on Monday, which drove many supporters and protesters to the city to advocate for their position while Democrats begin to layout their party platform over the next few days.

One such protest caught the eye of many in Philadelphia. Marijuana advocates from DCMJ.org brought out their now-famous inflatable joint that stitches more than 51-feet. Protesters marched the giant joint through the streets on a “jaywalk” towards the Wells Fargo Center, where the convention is taking place.

Florida: No Doctors to Prescribe Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, July, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

After spending two long years trying to figure out how to operate a restrictive medical marijuana program, one that allows only a handful of patients to gain access to low-THC strains of the herb, Florida officials announced last week that they were finally in the businesses of selling weed. However, while the news of this development may sound encouraging, some of the latest reports indicate that seriously ill patients are still struggling to get their hands of the state’s version of cannabis medicine because many doctors have simply refused to write recommendations.

In accordance with the Compassionate Cannabis Medical Act of 2014, patients suffering from cancer, epilepsy and a few other severe conditions can get a doctor to certify them to purchase a non-intoxicating brand of cannabis from any of the state’s licensed dispensaries. But, so far, the trick has been in locating a physician willing to sign off on this new therapy. A report from the Tallahassee Democrat indicates that there are currently only 25 doctors in the entire state of Florida that are authorized to make these recommendations. That is a substantial shortage of doctors, considering the state estimates 125,000 people will qualify for the program.

Big Weed Enters California’s Emerald Triangle

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Consisting of Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity counties, the area known as the Emerald Triangle holds a reputation for its ongoing history as a hub for cannabis cultivation. Now, nearly 20 years after California’s Medical Marijuana Program roll out, the region’s first licenses for commercial cannabis production have been issued.

Mendocino county approved licenses for two substantial grow operations – Honeydew farms LLC and Blessed Coast LLC – seen by some as the start of a new era for the cannabis industry.

Unsurprisingly voices of concern were raised, in particular those of some cannabis advocacy groups concerned the county is catering largely to big businesses.

New Research Shows Promise In Cannabis Fighting Dementia

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, July, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

Do you know someone suffering from dementia?  Chances are, you do (or have) because the sad statistic is that one in three seniors dies with dementia.  And the incidences are expected to triple in the near future.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia.  The most promising research for Alzheimer’s disease?  Marijuana, but sadly, cannabis is illegal in most places.

EVERYONE SUFFERS BECAUSE OF DEMENTIA (WELL ALMOST EVERYONE)

Dementia is expensive.  The US estimates that in 2016, dementia will cost the country $236 Billion.  That’s a “B”. Billion.  (*Sheesh. With that much money in play, I imagine someone is profiting, somewhere?)
