How Oregon Growers Are Putting Patients First

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, July, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

As more states pass medical cannabis laws and place this plant into regulated programs, it is essential that those involved remember that this legal industry was first born out of compassion for patients. Several growers in Oregon are making sure that continues to be the case.

It is widely known in the cannabis community, and is now even stated on Web MD, that “your body already makes [cannabis]-like chemicals that affect pain, inflammation, and many other processes. [Cannabis] can sometimes help those natural chemicals work better.”

Many growers are deeply committed to patient care and several throughout Oregon are making sure the medical patients are put first as they cultivate specific strains for them on their farms.

Congress Blocks Veterans Equal Access Amendment Despite House And Senate Approval

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

congress medical marijuanaOn Thursday, news broke that the Veterans Equal Access Amendment had been stripped from the House Conference Report of the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs (MilCon-VA) and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017. The provision was removed from the conference version of the bill, despite passing in the Senate Appropriations Committee 20-9, and on the House floor 233-189. The removal of an amendment to an appropriations bill that has been approved in both chambers is unprecedented and defies explanation.

“Blocking this amendment at the conference committee stage is an assault on democracy and those Americans who risked their lives and health to defend it,” said Michael Liszewski, Government Affairs Director of Americans for Safe Access (ASA). “It’s shocking that House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers would allow a veterans health care provision that won by wide margins in a Senate committee and on the House floor to be stripped from the bill behind closed doors.”

Starbuds loses license for Denver marijuana grow in first decision of its kind

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, June, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

Neighborhood push-back against a northeast Denver marijuana grow operation culminated Thursday in the city’s first-ever denial of a routine cultivation license renewal.

Starbuds, a marijuana chain that grows plants on the second floor of its recreational shop at 4690 Brighton Blvd., plans to appeal the decision by Stacie Loucks, the executive director of the Denver Department of Excise and Licenses. In her decision, Loucks agrees with a hearing officer’s earlier findings that the grow operation’s odors and other effects conflict with a new aspirational neighborhood plan for working-class Elyria-Swansea.

Government Employee Gets Job Back After Being Fired for MMJ Use

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, June, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

A senior programmer and systems analyst in Lane County, Oregon is getting his job back after being fired for his medical marijuana use.

An arbitrator ruled in favor of 60-year-old Michael Hirsch, who used medical cannabis to manage the negative effects of cancer treatment, reports the Register Guard. He'll be reinstated at his job next week and has received $21,550 in back pay.

This type of ruling is rare—employees who are fired over medical cannabis use usually have no recourse due to federal prohibition. In June 2015, a medical marijuana patient in Colorado lost his case against the Dish Network after he was fired for his off-duty medical cannabis use. The Colorado Supreme Court decided that federal law applied in this case, even though the patient was following the state's medical marijuana laws.
