Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, July, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

Voters in Arkansas will get the opportunity this November to decide, once again, whether the state should legalize a medical marijuana program for the severely sick and terminally ill.

On Thursday, the Secretary of State’s office announced that a proposed ballot measure brought forth by Arkansans for Compassionate Care qualified enough signatures to go before the voting community in the upcoming election. The group recently submitted over 117,000 signatures in hopes that at least 67,887 would be verified by the state.

Case to Get Medical Marijuana for PTSD Heads to Court in Colorado

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

Denver, CO –  The law firm, Hoban & Feola’s Denver team filed a historic case in the Colorado Court of Appeals on behalf of Plaintiffs who wish to obtain medical cannabis recommendations for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD is not currently recognized as a qualifying condition for which medical cannabis can be prescribed in Colorado. The firm is set to bring national attention with this case, similar to the 2009 Centennial case which led to creation of the commercial cannabis market in Colorado and beyond. Similarly, the ruling in this current PTSD case could set a national precedent, affecting the entire industry.

Founded in 2008, Hoban & Feola is the fastest growing national law firm specializing in cannabis and hemp law and policy. Headquartered in Denver, the firm has expanded from 12 to 15 states with the recent onboard of Nevada, Massachusetts and Maine. Additionally, the firm offers expert legal counsel in Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Central America and Uruguay.

Medicare Prescription Costs Drop in Wake of Legalized MMJ

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

While it has been rumored for years that the legalization of medical marijuana in the United States would begin to empty the pockets of the big pharmaceutical companies by making profitable prescription drugs obsolete, a new report indicates that this scenario may not be too far fetched.

In states that have legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes, some of the latest research shows that Medicare claims for prescription medications are on the decline. A study published this week in Health Affairs finds that expenditures for Medicare Part D – the portion of the program that covers prescription costs – are down in medical marijuana states for drugs used to treat conditions ranging from anxiety to chronic pain because patients seem to be gravitating towards the herb as alternative to popping pills.

VA Hospitals Will Continue to Reject Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, July, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

Although Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner recently signed a bill into law allowing patients suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to participate in the state’s medical marijuana program, reports indicate that the brass overseeing Veterans Affairs Hospitals throughout the state will not allow any of its physicians to discuss the herb with patients suffering from this disorder.

Last week, just days after a Cook County Judge ordered the state to include PTSD as a qualified condition under the state’s medical marijuana program, Governor Rauner swooped in and put his signature on a bill, which received overwhelming support this year in the General Assembly, expanding the Illinois medical marijuana pilot program to allow patients with PTSD and terminal illnesses to purchase cannabis from their friendly neighborhood dispensary. Rauner’s signature also guarantees the program will continue to function until at least 2020.

When Traditional Pain Killers Are Not Effective – Managing Pain with Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

Did you know that marijuana has been used to treat pain since prehistoric times? As the debate about medical marijuana gets heated, one would think this is a modern ideology. On the contrary, an ancient Chinese surgeon Hua Tuo (c. 140-208) is the earliest person recorded to have administered cannabis as anesthesia during surgery. Hemp was also among the herbs used for food, specifically a source of fiber, in Taiwan during those early days.

Today, medical researchers have profound proof that marijuana is among the valuable drugs that could be utilized for treating different ailments. In fact, the current debates and massive legalization of medical marijuana in various states in the US could be attributed to such scientific findings.

Moreover, it is noteworthy that the recent decisions are not based on a superficial short-term research. On the contrary, renowned medical institutions have been undertaking intensive studies on the subject of medical marijuana for the past 20 years. The research had been ongoing even after its ban as a prescription medicine in the US in 1937.
