OK May Finally OK Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, February, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

Oklahoma may finally OK medical marijuana and patients may have access a year or so earlier than expected, if Representative Eric Proctor (D-Tulsa) gets his bill passed before voters get to decide on State Question 788.

The big difference is the breadth of ailments covered – critics of the new bill complain that the scope is too narrow, covering only a handful of ailments.

Rep. Proctor says his bill comes on the heels of some of his constituents became medical marijuana refugees, to other cannabis-legal states, in order to get the medicine they needed. Meanwhile, Oklahomans for Health, which OKNews reports is backed a petition drive to get the measure on the ballot, is suing Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt over his rewrite of the ballot title.

Medical Cannabis Finally Given Green Light in South Africa

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, February, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

The move was hailed as a major victory by the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) and a tribute to one of its Members of Parliament, the late Mario Oriani-Ambrosini, who fought for the legalization of cannabis oil, known in South Africa as “dagga” oil.

Italian-born South African MP Oriani-Ambrosini started the debate over medical cannabis when he stood up in the South African National Assembly in 2014 and made a direct, impassioned plea to South African President Jacob Zuma to decriminalize dagga oil for medical use.

Six months later, MP Oriani-Ambrosini died of stage 4 lung cancer.

Advocates Push for a 2017 Texas Medical Marijuana Bill in Austin

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, February, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

Advocates push for a 2017 Texas medical marijuana bill during a Constituent Advocacy Day that brought a few hundred cannabis supporters to the state capitol, in Austin.

The effort to galvanize support for cannabis in the southern state was organized by a coalition of groups including chapters of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), and Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) under the umbrella of Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy.

The Texas Cannabis Report says the event was the first real push for marijuana reform in the new year. There was a glimmer of hope back in 2015, when two bills passed out of committee, but they were never heard by the full House of Representatives.

CBD: The Cinderella Molecule

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, February, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

“This changes everything!”

That was the immediate reaction of Bay Area journalist Fred Gardner as he stood in the office of Steep Hill Laboratory in Oakland and eyed a chromatogram showing the unusual cannabinoid content of a hitherto unknown marijuana strain. The year was 2009, and the strain of interest, an oddity called Soma A-Plus, didn’t top the charts for THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), a.k.a. the high-causer, unlike the several thousand other bud samples that Steep Hill had previously tested for California’s medical marijuana dispensaries and growers.

Soma A-Plus was the first of a handful of soon-to-be-discovered strains imbued with a significant amount of cannabidiol (CBD), a compound with intriguing medical properties. One of these strains, Women’s Collective Stinky Purple, tipped the scales at over 10 percent CBD by dry weight, with little THC. This genetic anomaly wasn’t hemp—it was a drug plant, a high-resin, CBD-rich marijuana strain brimming with medicated goo. But anyone who smoked it or consumed it as an edible wouldn’t get high, because CBD isn’t psychoactive. In fact, CBD can actually lessen or neutralize the THC high, depending on how much of each compound is in a given strain or product.

New Zealand Patients Now Have Easier Access to Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, February, 13th 2017 by THCFinder

Access to medical marijuana is now easier for New Zealand patients as a top minister deferred the duty of who can get the plant to the Ministry of Health.

The change in the approval process means the Associate Health Minister Peter Dunne will no longer sign off on each individual request for pharmaceutical grade medicinal cannabis products.

“When applications first began to be received it was my view that the final decision appropriately lay at ministerial level, rather than exposing officials to risk, given the complicated and contentious nature of the issue – that is to say the buck stopped with me”, wrote Mr Dunne in a statement.

US Veterans Enroll in First Trial of Marijuana for Chronic PTSD

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, February, 10th 2017 by THCFinder

I received a press release from one of my favorite organizations, Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). I was excited to learn that U.S. Veterans have a chance to enroll in the first trial of marijuana for chronic PTSD (post traumatic stress syndrome).

In my time as an activist I have heard from hundreds of veterans expressing their desire to have safe access to medical marijuana to help treat an array of health issues. It seems to me that the number one issue veterans want access to medical marijuana is to treat PTSD, and I wholeheartedly support that. Depriving Veterans from access to marijuana and forcing them to use harmful prescription drugs is an atrocity, I am glad to hear that this trial is taking place.
