‘Uncle Spliffy’ Seeks To Change Negative Perceptions About Cannabis And Sports

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, March, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

uncle spliffy cliff robinsonLate last year I bumped into former NBA player Cliff Robinson at the airport in Portland, Oregon. Jay and I were on our way to Vegas to attend the Marijuana Business Conference there, and Cliff Robinson was on our flight. Jay actually talked to Cliff for a little bit prior to boarding. While we were taking off, Jay and I joked about how cool it would be if Cliff was going to the conference at The Rio. Cliff is a legend to all Portland Trailblazer fans, which is a very big chunk of the State of Oregon from what I can tell.

Little did we know at the time that Cliff was indeed flying to Vegas to attend the event, and was at that time in the process of finalizing the details on an announcement that went viral very fast. That announcement was for ‘Uncle Spliffy‘ Cliff’s new brand. Uncle Spliffy is a ‘sports cannabis brand’ that is about more than just selling products, but also about changing minds. Medical marijuana can do some amazing things for those that suffer from injuries, and injuries are very common in sports.

Most doctors prescribe harmful painkillers to athletes in order to help them alleviate their suffering, which is a temporary fix at best, or the start down a path towards harmful addiction at worst. Either way, the painkillers are often not as effective as a treatment regimen that involves medical cannabis. Cannabis can help those that are suffering from injuries, as well as help people get off of painkillers and battle their addiction. Addiction is something that many, many athletes face, and medical marijuana can help, which is a principle that is at the very core of the Uncle Spliffy brand.

Arkansans For Compassionate Care Have Gathered Over 60K Signatures

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, March, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

Arkansas medical marijuanaI received the following uplifting campaign update from Arkansans for Compassionate Care, which is an organization that is trying to legalize medical marijuana in Arkansas:

Last Tuesday at the polls our team of volunteers collected over 4,000 medical cannabis signatures in one day! It was an amazing day of action that helped take our campaign to the next level. Arkansans for Compassionate Care had dozens of volunteers working in cities like Little Rock, Fayetteville, Rogers, El Dorado, Fort Smith, Jonesboro and more!

The next few months are critical to us making the ballot, but we need YOUR help to make that happen. Can you make a donation today to help us keep our momentum going?

2016 is the year that we will pass medical cannabis and finally protect sick and dying patients from arrest and prosecution. Since we now have 61,107 signatures we’re much closer to reaching our goal of more than 100,000. We need 68,000 valid signatures to qualify for the ballot, but since many signatures will be invalidated we need to overshoot our goal. In the next 4 months we’re going to be working hard to collect another 40,000 signatures. We can do this, but we’ll need YOUR help!

Can you donate today?

It takes resources and money to make this happen and that’s why we’re counting on YOU to help us with a contribution today and ask a friend to donate too! Any amount helps! Please share on Facebook too!

Ohioans For Medical Marijuana Submit Initiative Petition To State A.G.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, March, 3rd 2016 by THCFinder

ohioans for medical marijuana mppBackers of a proposed 2016 ballot measure to establish a comprehensive medical marijuana program in Ohio submitted their initiative petition to the Ohio Attorney General on Thursday with more than 2,000 signatures.

The office has 10 days to examine the official summary of the initiative and confirm the petition contains at least 1,000 valid signatures of Ohio voters. The petition will then be sent to the Ohio Ballot Board, which will have 10 days to review the measure and confirm it complies with Ohio initiative laws. Initiative backers will then need to collect an additional 305,591 valid signatures of Ohio voters by early July in order to qualify for the November ballot.

Ohioans for Medical Marijuana, a campaign committee formed by the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), posted the full initiative text, the official initiative summary, and a Q&A with MPP Executive Director Rob Kampia on its website earlier this week at https://www.ohioansformmj.org/initiative.

“This initiative was drafted to ensure seriously ill Ohioans have safe and legal access to medical marijuana if their doctors believe it will alleviate their pain and suffering,” said MPP communications director Mason Tvert. “The one benefit of not already having a medical marijuana law is that we were able to incorporate the best practices and lessons learned from the 23 states that do have one.”

Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Bill Back In Action

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, February, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

Although Pennsylvania lawmakers have been sandbagging a restrictive medical marijuana bill for the past several months, mostly in fear that pushing through any measure would lead to someone, somewhere getting stoned, it seems the proposal has been resurrected by the state legislature and is scheduled for a House vote later next month.

"I have heard the House leadership has promised the people desperate for medicine that there will be a vote the week of March 14,” Senator Daylin Leach, a co-sponsor of the bill, said in a statement. “I believe and assume that the House leadership are men of their word. Unless SB3 passes identically to what the Senate passes, it will have to come back to the Senate. We will evaluate it carefully at that time."

Canadians just won the right to grow medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, February, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Canadian medical marijuana patients have won the right to grow their own bud in a landmark court ruling released Wednesday.

Federal Judge Michael Phelan has ruled in favor of four British Columbia residents, declaring the country's medical marijuana regime, known as the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR), unconstitutional.

This means that the federal law passed by the former Conservative government of Stephen Harper has no force and effect.
