Overwhelming Majority Of New Yorkers Support Allowing Medical Marijuana For Patients In Need

Patients, Doctors and Nurses Gather in Albany for Press Conference and Rally to Demand NY Senate Pass Medical Marijuana Bill Immediately
Albany — Yesterday, dozens of patients living with cancer, multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis, and other serious, debilitating medical conditions travelled from around the state to demand that the New York State Senate pass the Compassionate Care Act (S.4406/Savino) immediately. The bill, which would create one of the nation’s most tightly regulated medical marijuana programs, would allow seriously ill patients access to a small amount of marijuana under the supervision of their healthcare provider.
Last week, the Assembly passed the bill with bipartisan vote of 99-41, the widest margin of the four times the bill has been passed in that chamber.
“From Delaware to Maine, almost every state allows medical use of marijuana,” said Assembly Health Committee Chair Richard N. Gottfried, noting that 18 states and the District of Columbia currently have medical marijuana laws.  ”If the patient and physician agree that a severe debilitating or life-threatening condition should be treated with medical marijuana, the government should not stand in the way. This is sensible, strict, and humane legislation,” Gottfried added.
A recent Siena Poll found that an overwhelming 82% of New York voters support medical marijuana, including 81% of both Republicans and Democrats.  Despite this broad support, the Senate has never let the bill come to the floor for a vote.
“I have suffered from excruciating nausea and pain from the many chemotherapy treatments I have undergone,” said Nancy Rivera,Troy resident and survivor of two bouts of breast cancer, colon cancer and throat cancer. “During a series of chemo and radiation treatments, I lost 40 pounds in 3 months. I have never used medical marijuana since it is not legal; however, I think all cancer patients should have the legal option of trying medical marijuana if their provider recommends it.”
“As someone who has lived with HIV/AIDS for 20 years, I know that medical marijuana can help with the side effects of HIV medications,” said Dawn Carney of Mount Vernon. “It is simply wrong that New Yorkers living with serious and life-threatening conditions have to break the law just to use a medication that can relieve their symptoms.  Patients have suffered long enough!  It’s time for the Senate to pass this bill,” she said.


District residents can now apply for marijuana cards

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, June, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
D.C.'s Department of Health has released the patient application form for medical marijuana cards, WTOP reported.
Qualified applicants who also have a doctor's recommendation can then legally go to the soon-to-open dispensaries in the city.
"D.C.'s medical marijuana program is for people with serious illnesses," says Scott Morgan, a spokesman for Capital City Care, the District's first licensed dispensary. "This opportunity means a great deal to them. It's not like we're opening a new café down the street."


RIVERSIDE: City goes after medical marijuana delivery services

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, June, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
Arranging home delivery of medical marijuana may have been as easy as phoning for pizza up to now, but Riverside officials want to put a stop to those special deliveries.
Last month the California Supreme Court upheld cities’ rights to ban storefront marijuana dispensaries, and last week Riverside officials announced that all dispensaries they knew of had shut their doors.
But the ban in the city zoning code didn’t address mobile dispensaries, and that’s where Riverside attorneys say operators of some now-closed brick and mortar locations have put their efforts following the court ruling.
“The studies have shown that the increase (in delivery services) has been found to coincide with successful enforcement actions” against storefronts, Riverside Deputy City Attorney Neil Okazaki told council members Tuesday, June 11, shortly before they approved an emergency ban on mobile marijuana dispensaries.
One attorney who represents about 40 Inland-area marijuana collectives can attest to that shift. James De Aguilera said Wednesday that among his clients, “I think everybody’s either gone mobile or is in the process of going mobile” since the court upheld Riverside’s ban.
However, he added, there’s “not a word about mobile dispensing” in the recent Supreme Court decision, and he doesn’t believe Riverside can ban it.

Medical marijuana all but halts Colorado 6-year-olds chronic seizures

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — For most of her life, 6-year-old Charlotte Figi has suffered from 20 to 60 seizures a day due to an incurable genetic disorder called Dravet Syndrome. After the use of medical marijuana, Charlotte has shown dramatic improvement.
A lengthy feature in an edition of this week’s Colorado Springs Gazette chronicles the youngster’s difficult journey.
Charlotte’s parents, Paige and Matt Figi, said the daily seizures made it impossible for Charlotte to have any kind of normal existence. The family had tried a number of remedies, like a special diet and dozens of prescribed medications, to combat the seizures. But each treatment exhibited negative side effects.
While the diet appeared to ameliorate the seizures at first, the strict food restrictions prompted bone loss, plunging Charlotte into a preliminary stage of osteoporosis. She also suffered from respiratory, ear and bladder infections. The drugs put stress on her organs and some of the medications caused her to stop breathing.
Paige and Matt said they had reached a stage of desperation. When the suggestion came to try a less conventional approach to their daughter’s disease, both were willing to overlook the controversial implications of a 6-year-old using medicinal marijuana.

Even More Science Suggesting That Cannabinoids May Halt Diabetes

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
By Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director
Preclinical study data published online in the scientific journal Nutrition & Diabetes reports that tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) — a naturally occurring analogue of THC — possesses positive metabolic effects in animal models of obesity.
British researchers assessed the effects of THCV administration on dietary-induced and genetically modified obese mice. Authors reported that although THCV administration did not significantly affect food intake or body weight gain in any of the models, it did produce several metabolically beneficial effects, including reduced glucose intolerance, improved glucose tolerance, improved liver triglyceride levels, and increased insulin sensitivity.
Researchers concluded: “Based on these data, it can be suggested that THCV may be useful for the treatment of the metabolic syndrome and/or type 2 diabetes (adult onset diabetes), either alone or in combination with existing treatments. Given the reported benefits of another non-THC cannabinoid, CBD in type 1 diabetes, a CBD/THCV combination may be beneficial for different types of diabetes mellitus.”
