Medical Marijuana

Marijuana bill would allow growth, sale of pot for medical purposes in Utah

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 25th 2015 by THCFinder
mmj-in-utahNewly released legislation would establish a network of marijuana greenhouses and medical dispensaries, all licensed by the state — the first time such a plan has been proposed in Utah.
 
Under SB259, sponsored by Sen. Mark Madsen, R-Saratoga Springs, businesses could register with the Utah Tax Commission and apply for licenses to grow cannabis under the supervision of the state Division of Occupational Licensing.
 
Individuals with chronic illnesses could purchase and use small amounts ­— not more than 2 ounces at a time — of cannabis oils and edibles containing tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. There would be a $100 fee to obtain a registration card from the state.
 
The plants would have to be tracked electronically, from planting to consumption and tested by a certified, independent testing laboratory.
 
Applicants would have to pay a $5,000 fee to obtain a license to grow or sell marijuana. There may be one licensed facility for every 200,000 residents in a county — so as many as five could operate in Salt Lake County.
 
The bill is scheduled for a public hearing — in the Senate Judiciary Committee of which Madsen is Chairman — Thursday morning.
 
Twenty-three states — including Utah's neighbors in Nevada, Arizona and Colorado — and the District of Columbia have legal medical marijuana.
 
Madsen's bill will face an uphill battle, not solely because of Utah's conservative, anti-drug Legislature, but because of opposition from Gov. Gary Herbert, who has expressed concerns that legal marijuana for medical purposes would lead to a slippery slope to recreational use of the drug.
 
"I mean, it's a sham," Herbert said. "It's not just being used for medical uses, it's being used for recreational purposes."

Iowa Democrats push for bill to allow production, distribution of medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, February, 17th 2015 by THCFinder
iowa-democrats-pushing-for-mmjDES MOINES, Iowa —Iowa's medical marijuana law is barely a year old and some legislators are already looking to change it.
 
Under a proposed piece of legislation, certain Iowa businesses would be allowed to produce and distribute medical marijuana. 
 
Senate Democrats said they are doing this to expand the availability of the drug for Iowans who need it. They announced Monday that they will introduce the legislation this session.
 
This comes after a day when two Senate committees heard from a number of residents at the Statehouse who described their difficulties in trying to obtain medical marijuana in order to treat personal or family illnesses.
 
"Passing a medical cannabis bill or rescheduling it won't fix everything but it might just save some of those heroes,” Jon Custis said Monday at the Statehouse. Custis has been diagnosed with PTSD.
 
Last year, Gov. Terry Branstad signed a bill into law that allows for the possession and use of cannabis oil to treat chronic epilepsy.
 
But the law does not provide any way for residents to make or distribute the oil in Iowa. It also prohibits other forms of medical marijuana, which is a huge problem for Iowans who suffer from other illnesses.
 
"Iowans are talking, and I hope you're listening. We need this option now, not years from now. Patients are suffering every day that could be saved or at the very least have their pain and symptoms eased,” Brandon Brase said Monday. Brase has Crohn’s disease.
 
The proposed legislation would create a program that monitors the production and distribution or medical marijuana in Iowa.
 
Democrats said it is similar to legislation in other states.
 
During his weekly press conference on Monday, Branstad said he doesn't know if any additional medical marijuana legislation will pass this session. He did say that he is open to working with the state of Illinois to allow Iowans to travel there to access the drug.
 
Illinois recently passed legislation for a pilot-program that allows companies to manufacture and distribute medical marijuana in the state.
 
Before anything is done, Branstad wants to discuss the issue further with Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner.

Medical Marijuana Recalled In Canada For Being Too Potent

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, February, 12th 2015 by THCFinder
marijuana-recalled-for-being-too-potentThere is a medical marijuana recall in Canada. As far as I know, this is at least the second time there has been a recall issued. This recall is unique in that the reason the recall was issued is because the medical marijuana is too potent. Per the Health Canada:
 
Peace Naturals Project Inc. is voluntarily recalling product Nyce N’ EZ (Lot number: 12-NAE-003-14 and Lot Number: 12-NAE-003-14-A) of marijuana for medical purposes.
 
During the course of a regular inspection conducted under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations, Health Canada inspectors determined this product was labelled with delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) of 9.07% with a product specification of +/- 2% of THC. However, when retested from a third party laboratory, the product demonstrated that the content of THC may be as high as 13.7%.
 
While exposure to high levels of THC may be associated with increased risks of experiencing certain adverse effects, the level of THC in this product does not appear to have been high enough to trigger an increased risk to the health and safety of clients. The company has not received reports of any adverse events or complaints associated with the use of this product, nor has Health Canada received any reports of adverse reactions. Therefore, the impact of this mislabelling represents a low risk to the health and safety of clients.
 
Peace Naturals Project Inc. is instructing clients to immediately discontinue use of any marijuana from this batch. Clients should return the marijuana by contacting Peace Naturals Project Inc. to obtain appropriate packaging and postage paid shipping container. If clients wish to destroy the product at home, they should add water to the marijuana to render it unusable, mix it with cat litter to mask the odour and dispose of it with regular household waste.
 
Producers of marijuana for medical purposes are subject to compliance and enforcement measures similar to those in place for other producers of controlled substances. They must meet strict security, control and reporting requirements, and they are regularly inspected.
 
How many of you are out there like, ‘send me all of the recalled marijuana!’?

California cops, cities offer new medical marijuana bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 11th 2015 by THCFinder
cops-offer-new-marijuana-billWith one eye on a looming effort to legalize recreational marijuana in California, organizations representing the state's cities and police officers are pushing a Sacramento-area lawmaker’s bill to regulate medical cannabis.
 
Assembly Bill 266, by Assemblyman Ken Cooley, D-Rancho Cordova, would set up a statewide regulatory scheme, but local jurisdictions would continue to have the final word on licensing medical marijuana growers and dispensaries.
 
For years, as legislators offered bills to impose rules on California's teeming medical marijuana industry, law enforcement remained staunchly opposed. The aversion of cops to bills they saw as further legitimizing marijuana helped sway lawmakers to vote no.
 
That changed last year with a bill backed by the California Police Chiefs Association and the League of California Cities. The legislation failed, but now Cooley is carrying a followup bill he hopes will conclude what has become a perennial debate.
 
“We keep having groundhog day. We keep running these bills and we never get closure on them,” Cooley said in an interview. “I am depending on the cities and the police chiefs to be pursuing a community set of rules they feel works from a law enforcement and a community quality of life perspective.”
 
Both Cooley and the bill’s sponsors said it is preferable to create a framework for medical marijuana now rather than risk having the rules determined via a legalization measure on the ballot in 2016.
 
“There is a continuing need to try and enact a regulatory structure that protects local control,” said Tim Cromartie, a lobbyist for the League of California Cities, “as opposed to ‘let’s start from scratch and do our own thing.’”

Marijuana Legalization Bill Filed In Illinois

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, February, 6th 2015 by THCFinder
mj-bill-filed-in-illinoisLast year the State of Illinois passed a medical marijuana bill. However, Illinois’ medical marijuana program has yet to get off the ground due to many delays. Illinois’ new Governor, Bruce Rauner, announced winners of medical marijuana cultivation and distribution licenses so hopefully things finally get moving. In the meantime, there are two bills in Illinois’ Legislature that deal with marijuana reform. One bill would decriminalize marijuana possession, and another would fully legalize marijuana for all adults over 21 years old. Per The Joint Blog:
 
House Bill 218, filed by Representative Kelly Cassidy, would make the possession of up to 30 grams of cannabis a $100 ticket with no possibility of arrest or imprisonment. The proposal would also change the penalty for possession of over 30 grams, but under 500, making it a misdemeanor rather than a felony.
 
Senate Bill 753, filed by Senator Michael Noland, would legalize the possession of up to 30 grams of cannabis, as well as the personal cultivation of up to five cannabis for plants. Senator Noland’s proposal doesn’t authorize cannabis retail outlets.
 
It’s tough to say what the chances are of either of these bills passing. It was a very hard fought battle to get medical marijuana legalized in Illinois, and even then, Illinois’ version of medical marijuana is one of the most strict in the state. There is no provision for patients to grow marijuana themselves, so legalizing cultivation of up to five plants may be a long shot. However, I’m hopeful that people who are fed up with the delays with the medical marijuana program will push their legislators to do what’s right, and pass full legalization for all adults over 21 in Illinois.
