New Medical Cannabis Law Submitted in Missouri

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, January, 7th 2017 by THCFinder

A bill has been filed in Missouri to allow access medical cannabis through out the state. House Bill 437 was introduced by Republican Jim Neely yesterday. The initiative would add marijuana to a list of experimental drugs, products and devices that can be prescribed to eligible terminally ill patients under the “Right to Try Act.”

“Missourians fighting for their lives don’t have time to wait for the FDA to approve investigational treatments that contain cannabis,” said Neely, a Republican Representative and physician who lost his daughter to stage four cancer in 2015.

Not only would bill grant a new level of access to cannabis products for those who qualify, but it also includes text to remove some restrictions on cannabis growers.

Missouri attempted to put medical marijuana on the ballot in November 2016. However, the initiative, backed by New Approach Missouri, fell short by 23 signatures needed to make its way to the public for voting.

Study: Marijuana Not Associated With Risk of Stroke

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, January, 6th 2017 by THCFinder

Most doctors will tell you: Heavy alcohol use is bad, and heavy tobacco use is even worse.

If you smoke a considerable amount of cigarettes, your risk for a bevy of health issues, including heart disease, cancer and stroke, is considerably increased.

But marijuana? Hardly a concern at all—at least when it comes to stroke.

According to a study involving almost 50,000 people in Sweden, published in the journal of the American Heart Association, marijuana use is not associated with any additional risk of stroke.

We found no evident association between cannabis use in young adulthood and stroke, including strokes before 45 years of age,” study authors wrote in their conclusion, published last week.

California's Gigantic Medical-Marijuana Industry Could Be Devastated by an Unlikely Source

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, January, 2nd 2017 by THCFinder

If you support the legalization of marijuana, 2016 didn't give you much to complain about. Last year, residents in four states approved recreational-marijuana ballot initiatives, doubling the total from the end of 2015, while five new states put medical-cannabis laws on their books. By year's end, 28 states and Washington, D.C., had legalized medical pot.

And there's more where that came from. We saw two battleground states -- Pennsylvania and Ohio -- introduce and pass medical-marijuana legislation without sending it to a public vote. We also saw a continued softening in the public's opinion toward marijuana, which remains an illegal drug at the federal level. Gallup's 2016 poll found that 60% of Americans now want to see the substance legalized nationwide, up from just 25% when California passed the first compassionate-use law in 1996. Legal weed sales have also soared. Cannabis research firm ArcView sees sales reaching nearly $22 billion by the end of the decade, while investment firm Cowen & Co. projects a better-than-23% annualized growth rate leading to $50 billion in legal sales by 2026.
