Medical marijuana ruling due Monday

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, May, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
The California Supreme Court will rule Monday, May 6 on a Riverside case that will decide whether local governments can ban storefront medical marijuana dispensaries.
 
The ruling will decide whether cities and counties that have banned medical marijuana clinics through zoning ordinances are on solid legal ground, or whether they have overreached by blocking a way to purchase marijuana for use that is permitted by state law.
 
There are an estimated 200 local bans statewide on medical marijuana stores.
 
Inland governments that prohibit medical marijuana dispensaries include Riverside and San Bernardino counties and the cities of Riverside, San Bernardino, Hemet, Redlands, San Jacinto, Corona, Norco, Murrieta, Temecula and Moreno Valley.
 
The Supreme Court's review of the case followed conflicting opinions in lower courts.

Pot for pets? Vet offers unorthodox marijuana treatment for pups in pain

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, May, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
With medical marijuana legalized in California and several other states, one veterinarian is asking why a puff can't help ailing pooches.
 
Dr. Doug Kramer, who runs the Vet Guru animal center in Chatsworth, outside Los Angeles, believes that the active ingredient in pot, THC, could be the key to helping Fido feel better.
 
He said that was the case in treating his own dog, Nikita, saying the marijuana regimen increased her "quality of life."
 
Speaking with Vice magazine last month, Kramer said that a friend had first introduced the idea to him, saying that she used marijuana on her dog when other traditional medications were not working.
 
When his own Husky, Nikita, was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Dr. Kramer knew he had nothing to lose in the battle to help his pet deal with the pain. "When it became clear that she was nearing the end, that's when she had nothing to lose, as long as it didn't hurt her," he told the magazine.
 
According to Dogster.com, Kramer is the first vet in the country to offer pot as a treatment for canine pain.
 
Maryland has become the latest state to legalize the drug for medicinal use, the 19th state to have some law on the matter.

Councilman Credits Marijuana For Helping Put His Cancer In Remission

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, May, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com)  — Los Angeles Councilman Bill Rosendahl announced Thursday his cancer is in remission.
 
The 67-year-old Rosendahl gave major credit to medical marijuana for his recovery.
 
Rosendahl told reporters last July he was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer of the ureter, located between his kidney and bladder.
 
“Frankly I was given a death sentence,” he said. Doctors told him he would not live to see last November’s election and prompted his decision not to seek a third term.
 
“I went though five months of hell,” Rosendahl said.
 
Marijuana allowed him to get a full and painless night’s sleep and he said he started feeling stronger about two months ago.
 
“I hope to live another 30 years,” Rosehdahl said, “I’m very optimistic.”

Medical marijuana in Illinois will be wildly different

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, May, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
The proposed Illinois medical marijuana program is not what you think it is. Lawmakers, policy experts, patients and advocates joined together to create legislation, although restrictive, that allows residents safe and legal access to medical marijuana. The four-year Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program will be self-sustained - not generating any revenue.
 
“We want the best marijuana program in the nation,” said Mike Graham, an Illinois resident who uses medicinal marijuana to treat severe pain caused by a degenerative disc disorder. “The way the bill is set up, we want a clear black and white picture of what the program is.”
 
Graham said that marijuana, which is still illegal in Illinois, gave him a better quality of life and while he advocates its use, he wants a tightly controlled program so the drug doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.
 
“We don’t want this getting to kids on the playground,” said Graham. “We just want to sick people to have safe afford access to a product that improves quality of life.”
