In a groundbreaking exhibition rich with opportunities for public input and dialogue about the uses and evolving attitudes about marijuana, the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) will open Altered State: Marijuana in California, the first-ever museum exhibition to focus on the topic, April 16, 2016, in its Great Hall. Set against the backdrop of a likely California ballot measure in 2016 to legalize marijuana’s recreational use, the exhibition features artwork, political documents and posters, scientific displays, and interactive and multimedia exhibits all meant to provoke questions and conversations about the provocative plant.

Designed as a catalyst for conversation and reflection, the exhibition explores the many ways that people consider marijuana, including historical, social, and political perspectives, scientific data, and opinions of a diverse range of community members and groups. Organized into ten different areas of focus—Cannabis Science, Medical Marijuana, Profitable Pot, Sacred Ganja, Criminal Dope, Creative Grass, Evil Weed, Politically Loaded, Youth and Weed, and Recreational Reefer—Altered State will provide the opportunity for Museum visitors to add their voices to the evolving conversation.

“We have designed an open and participatory experience to engage anyone who has an opinion or wants to learn more about the complex issues and information about this topic, which is relevant to all Californians,” says Associate Curator of Natural Sciences

Australia Legalizes Medical Marijuana

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

 

After listening to some powerful testimony by lawmakers and members of a national marijuana advocacy group, the Australian Parliament voted on Wednesday in favor of legalizing a nationwide program that will allow cannabis to be grown across the country for medicinal and scientific purposes.

According to a report by The Sydney Morning Herald, Senate lawmakers have officially put their seal of approval on amendments to the Narcotic Drugs Act, which, in turn, will lead to the creation of an authority to oversee the licensing of cannabis farms and the nationwide distribution of medical marijuana products.

Detroit Mayor Duggan’s Anti-Marijuana Bit Reveals City Bias

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan delivered his State of the City speech on Tuesday, February 23; in it he delivered a controversial accolade for a medical marijuana dispensary foe and received multiple rebukes from protesters representing the Black Lives Matter organization.

Detroit will begin the licensing process for medical marijuana distribution centers, or dispensaries, on March 1. In advance of that licensing process the city’s distribution centers report raids and intimidation by the Detroit Police Department. The pair of ordinances controlling the licensing and zoning rules were initiated by Detroit’s church and civic groups, and are strongly opposed by the medical marijuana community.

You know where Mayor Duggan stands on the issue when you know where he stood to deliver his State of the City speech on Tuesday: the Second Ebenezer Church in Detroit.

The Mayor later introduced the pastor of Second Ebeneezer Church as a member of the independent Police Commission, a Board whose duties had been suspended by the Emergency Financial Manager (EMF) and restored by Council in December.

Pot Cultivation Replaces Prison Economy in California Town

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

Adelanto, a poor city in San Bernardino County, was traditionally known for its fruit orchards and cider before it got into the mass incarceration business over two decades ago, when it welcomed the building of four prisons on its relatively small land area.

For the town’s 32,000 inhabitants—one-third living below federal poverty levels—prison jobs sounded good.

Today, however, another industry is tapping on the entrance of this semi-arid Mojave Desert town with an even better offer.

Last November, Adelanto, which means progress in Spanish, became the second city in Southern California to permit commercial cultivation of medical marijuana.

Stanton Municipal Medical Cannabis Ballot Measure Campaign Announcement

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

stanton california marijuanaFor those who want verification aside from the word document, I believe one can do a public records check with the city clerk for the documents if one wishes.

On December 22, 2015 the Stanton City Clerk returned the Stanton City Attorney’s Title and Summary of Stanton Patients Access PAC’s initiative. Next week we will be publishing a legal notice of the title and summary & notice of intent filed with the city clerk to comply with the Elections Code and should begin collecting the signatures in early March.

Speaking about the municipal ballot initiative launch, campaign strategist Jason Aula said:

“Currently the City has a ban on medical cannabis, and since the City of Stanton has dropped the ball on the MMJ policy so much, this is a prime chance for Stanton to lead the way on this policy and set municipal precedent across the state. This measure will set unprecedented municipal regulation in CA aside from the policy the City of Berkeley has in place. The history of Stanton is commercial rooted in the principles of capitalism. The green rush has come to Orange County, considering Stanton is a red city we want to show conservative cities support medical cannabis too!.

‘With our campaign “dream team” mobilized we have Stanton resident Rubi Arellano as the proponent, prominent medical cannabis attorney Matthew Pappas, and Jason Aula as the campaigns political consultant.

Long-Term Marijuana Use Associated With Improved Pain Relief, Reduced Opioid Use

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, February, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

The long-term, daily use of cannabis is associated with improved analgesia and reduced opioid use in patients with treatment-resistant chronic pain conditions, according to clinical trial data reported online ahead of print in The Clinical Journal of Pain.

Investigators with Hebrew University in Israel evaluated the use of cannabis on pain in a cohort of 176 patients, each of whom had been previously unresponsive to all conventional pain medications. Subjects inhaled THC-dominant cannabis daily (up to 20 grams per month) for a period of at least six months.

A majority of participants (66 percent) experienced improvement in their pain symptom scores after cannabis therapy, and most reported “robust” improvements in their quality of life. Subjects’ overall consumption of opioid drugs declined 44 percent by the end of the trial, and a significant percentage of participants discontinued opioid therapy altogether over the course of the study.
