Science Finally Explains How Cannabis Kills Cancer Cells And It's Pretty Amazing

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

Only recently we had published an article explaining how scientists at the National Institute of Health (NIH) have found cannabis to be a potential killer of cancer cells. You can read the article here.

On that note, we're going to talk about a scientific explanation that supports the NIH claim: "cannabis and cannabinoids may have benefits in treating the symptoms of cancer or the side effects of cancer therapies."

A molecular biologist, Dr Christina Sanchez, at the Compultense University in Madrid (Spain) spells out the exact mechanism at work, wherein the THC - "the main psychoactive constitute of the cannabis plant" - completely destroys the cancer cells.

Cannabinoids is a group of compounds that comprise cannabinol and the active components of cannabis. These bring the cannabinoid receptors in our body alive. Dr Sanchez explains how our body itself produces endocannabinoids that activate various processes within, "creating a healthy environment". According to her, it's important to note that cannabis has the potential to kill anything cancerous, without giving birth to any psychoactive effects.Read More:http://www.indiatimes.com/news/world/science-finally-explains-how-cannabis-kills-cancer-cells-and-its-pretty-amazing-244847.html

Denver quarantines marijuana products at two businesses for pesticides

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, September, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

Denver health officials Tuesday began inspecting and quarantining hundreds of marijuana products because their labels listed pesticides not approved for use on cannabis.

The move comes about six months after the city quarantined 100,000 plants at 11 grow facilities over concerns about pesticides.

Although pesticides are widely used on crops, their use on cannabis remains problematic because no safety standards exist. Marijuana is illegal under federal law, so the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which regulates pesticides, has never established any limits.

The Colorado Department of Agriculture, however, has created a list of pesticides it says can be used.

The holds at Mountain High Suckers on South Lipan Street and MMJ America on Arapahoe Street come after Denver's Department of Environmental Health late Monday warned businesses that products with labels that reflect the use of unapproved pesticides should be removed from shelves and destroyed or returned to the manufacturer.

Salem City Council allows early recreational pot sales

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, September, 1st 2015 by THCFinder

SALEM, Ore. - The Salem City Council voted 8 to 1 Monday night, to allow "early sales" of recreational marijuana. Mayor Anna Peterson was the only member to vote no.

The decision will allow medical marijuana dispensaries to sell recreational pot to customers 21 years and older from October 1 through December 31.

At the city council meeting, some voters expressed frustration that the early sales period was even up for debate. Others were angry that council only gave the public two days notice that it would be on Monday's agenda.


"You guys are like the Amazon Prime of Marijuana policy making," said blogger, Brian Hines, during  public testimony.

Soon Oregon Will Not Allow Out Of State Medical Marijuana Patients Or Growers

For awhile now Oregon’s Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) has had a distinction that no other state’s medical marijuana program has – it allows non-Oregon residents to become a patient or grower in the program. There are multiple states that recognize out of state medical marijuana cards, but Oregon will allow you to become a patient in Oregon (but has never recognized out of state medical marijuana cards). There are not a lot of out of state patients in the OMMP, but there are some nonetheless. Per Oregon Live:

Beginning Jan. 1, the Oregon Health Authority will stop issuing cards to patients without Oregon addresses. The rule is a response to a law passed this year by the Legislature requiring in-state residency.

Medical marijuana growers, who supply the dispensary market as well as individual patients, will also fall under new residency requirements. Starting July 1, new medical marijuana growers have had to demonstrate that they’ve lived in Oregon for two years.

According to the latest Oregon Health Authority data, about 71,000 people are registered as patients; about 1,900 have addresses outside of Oregon. The bulk of patients living outside of Oregon come from California, Idaho and Washington, according to state statistics. The list includes, famously, the singer Willie Nelson.

Medical Marijuana for Autism Is Denied In Michigan

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, August, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

safer michigan marijuanaThese tired eyes, which were filled with hope four short weeks ago, are now closing in disgust. The state of Michigan has denied allowing doctors to recommend marijuana for the treatment of autism.

On July 31, a panel of mostly doctors voted to add autism to the list of conditions qualifying one to use medical marijuana in Michigan. They weighed the evidence compiled by the petitioner Lisa Smith’s team and evaluated the character of the testimony they heard from parents of sick children and medical professionals.

They read peer-reviewed studies. National tests. Pages and pages of clinical notes from doctors who are currently using marijuana-derived medicines to treat children with autism. The panel, whose sole job is to decide which illnesses to add and which to deny, said add autism.

One administrator without any medical degree has decided they are wrong. Autism Denied.

Sorry, kids.

In a statement that was neither letter nor memorandum, newly appointed Director of the state’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, Mike Zimmer, cited written concerns from medical doctors but ignored their actual vote. He cited specifics of the petition in his denial, like the use of the term “autism.”

Pioneer Pot States Have Collected More Than $200 Million In Marijuana Taxes

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, August, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

The first two states to legalize recreational marijuana have collectively raked in at least $200 million in marijuana tax revenue, according to the latest tax data -- and they're putting those dollars to good use.

In Colorado, after about a year and a half of legal recreational marijuana sales, the state has collected more than $117 million in excise taxes from both the recreational and medical marijuana markets, according to the most recent data from the Colorado Department of Revenue. 

Washington state got a slower start. Its retail shops didn't begin selling recreational marijuana until July of last year, but they are keeping pace with Colorado's. About $83 million in excise taxes have already been collected in the year since sales first began, according to the most recent tax data from the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board.
