Patient benefits from marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, October, 3rd 2011 by THCFinder
More and more medical marijuana pateitns are turning to Rick Simpsons cure to help them with their cancer treatment and people are coming out about their results. 
 
FERNDALE — When his cancer came back for a fifth time, Michael McShane was desperate for treatment outside of traditional medicine.
 
The last time squamous cell carcinoma left lumpy tumors around his mouth, doctors cut it away and reconstructed his bottom lip by turning out a portion of its inner layer.
 
“You can only do most facial tricks once,” McShane, 51, said. “I needed another option.”
 
As a qualifying medical marijuana patient, he tried “Simpson oil” derived from cannabis plants by a Canadian named Rick Simpson. McShane bought some from an Oak Park dispensary that has since closed and puts a few drops every day on his face. Over the course of about 10 weeks, the tumors faded and then seemed to disappear.
 
His dermatologist, Dr. Ali Moiin, has said McShane isn’t cured but his cancer cells have decreased by about 60 percent.
 
“You still have some residual ones, but the size has definitely decreased,” Moiin told a WWJ-AM (950) reporter in late August, adding he thinks the results merit further scientific study.
 
Moiin didn’t return phone calls for an interview for this story. He isn’t the doctor who signed the physician certification form for McShane, who has another qualifying medical problem.

Could medical marijuana provide tax dollars for cities?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, October, 3rd 2011 by THCFinder

With such a large amount of registered medical marijuana users, the state could be providing large amounts of new revenue by simply taxing and regulating medical marijuana dispensaries that patients have the right to.

Medical marijuana has spawned a burgeoning industry in the United States, creating commerce and generating millions of dollars in tax revenues for states and cities across the country.
 
But here in Michigan, where it has been legal for nearly three years, the potential economic benefits of pot commerce remain a distant afterthought for state and local policymakers who just want to see some clarity in the law.
 
Passed as a ballot initiative in November 2008 with a 63 percent margin, the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act has given way to a steadily increasing stream of patients seeking marijuana as a way to ease chronic suffering.
 
The Michigan Department of Community Health in April 2009 began publishing the number of patients it has registered, a figure that has seen an exponential jump recently. In the first year of patient tallying, the MDCH reported more than 14,000 Michigan citizens were granted certifications for medically recommended marijuana. To date - about a year and a half since then - there are now more than 100,000 medical marijuana patients in the state.

4 Americans get pot from US government

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, September, 29th 2011 by THCFinder

Thats right, for those who aren't aware there are still 4people left in the original federal program that gave medical marijuana to patients with serious ailements. That alone shows you proof that Marijuana has medicinal value and the Federal government is well aware of that.

Sometime after midnight on a moonlit rural Oregon highway, a state trooper checking a car he had just pulled over found less than an ounce of pot on one passenger: A chatty 72-year-old woman blind in one eye.
 
She insisted the weed was legal and was approved by the U.S. government.
 
The trooper and his supervisor were doubtful. But after a series of calls to the U.S. Attorney's Office, the Drug Enforcement Agency and her physician, the troopers handed her back the card -- and her pot.

Medical marijuana patients hold protest

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, September, 28th 2011 by THCFinder
Rhode Island needs help with getting access to their medical marijuana. As it stands right now the government won't help at all with moving forward on any plans for medical marijuana patients.
 
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) - Rhode Island medical marijuana patients and advocates are calling on Gov. Lincoln Chafee to open three pot dispensaries.
 
Last Spring, Gov. Chafee suspended plans to open three compassion centers under the state's medical marijuana law.
 
The decision came after officials learned the facilities could face prosecution for violating federal drug laws.
 
On Tuesday, protestors gathered at the Rhode Island State House, demanding that Gov. Chafee follow the Rhode Island law and license the compassion centers.
