Former NFL QB Jim McMahon wants marijuana off banned substances list

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, June, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

A group of former NFL players is backing up the campaign that formerBaltimore Ravens lineman Eugene Monroe started to get medical marijuana removed from the league's banned substances list.

At last week's Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo, former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon advocated for marijuana as a medicinal alternative for pain management.

McMahon told the audience that marijuana "is not only an effective painkiller, but it is also far safer than the opioid painkillers that have destroyed thousands of American families," according to the New York Daily News.

U.S. Gov't Will Legalize Marijuana on August 1

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, June, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration will reclassify marijuana as a "Schedule Two" drug on August 1, 2016, essentially legalizing medicinal cannabis in all 50 states with a doctor's prescription, said a DEA lawyer with knowledge of the matter.

The DEA Lawyer had told the lawyer representing a DEA informant of the DEA's plan to legalize medicinal cannibis nationwide on August 1, 2016. When questioned by our reporter, the DEA lawyer felt compelled to admit the truth to him as well.

"Whatever the law may be in California, Arizona or Utah or any other State, because of Federal preemption this will have the effect of making THC products legal with a prescription, in all 50 states," the DEA attorney told the Observer. Federal Preemption is a legal doctrine that where the US Government regulates a particular field, State and local laws are overridden and of no effect.

Medical marijuana clinics open across Minnesota

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, June, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana is legal in Minnesota, but for many outstate patients, it’s been out of reach.

For most of the program’s first year, there were only three places in the entire state where patients could pick up a prescription: Minneapolis, Eagan and Rochester. That left vast stretches of the state hours from the nearest clinic.

That’s about to change. By the first of July, there will be more than twice as many medical cannabis clinics in the state than there were on the first of June.

(via Wikipedia.com)

Early this morning the Care By Design (CBD Guild) production facilities in Santa Rosa, California and Sonoma County were searched and temporarily closed by local law enforcement and the DEA (Federal Drug Enforcement Administration). Law enforcement seized equipment, computers, product, payroll, and financial paperwork.

Care By Design produces an array of medical marijuana products for thousands of patients in California, including patients suffering from cancer, epilepsy, chronic pain, PTSD and other intractable medical conditions.

Care By Design products are CBD-centric. CBD is therapeutically beneficial compound that does not get people high, and can counteract the intoxicating effects of THC. Care By Design products are available in non-smokable, medically appropriate formulations such as gel caps and oral sprays, and available in a variety of CBD:THC ratios so that patients can manage the psychoactive effects of medical marijuana.

Contrary to initial press reports, none of the Care By Design facilities are involved in the production of hash; nor is butane used in the company’s extraction process. Care By Design utilizes a non-volatile supercritical CO2 extraction method, and does not produce any hash, rosin, wax, shatter or similar products that are popular amongst recreational users.

NY’s Medical Marijuana Program Leading to a Nation of ‘No Smoke, No Grow’ Laws

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

It has been said, “As goes New York, so goes the nation,” a phrase which, in the grand scheme of nationwide efforts to reform marijuana laws, could indicate that cut-rate medicinal cannabis programs are destined to continue surfacing across the country—making a natural medicine too expensive for the average patient to afford.

Since New York officially launched its medical marijuana program six months ago, there has been a lot of concern that the state’s vision for marijuana medicine has made it next to impossible for almost everyone involved to reap any benefit. A recent report from the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) has found that the majority of those currently enrolled in the program are confronted with too many barriers to even participate.

Ohio Veterans Consider Lawsuit For Medical Marijuana Discrimination

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, June, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

ptsd second amendment military veteran cannabis marijuanaGov. John Kasich signed, House Bill 523- a plan to legalize medical cannabis, into law making Ohio the 25th state to approve its use.

Veterans across the state of Ohio are optimistic their state is well along their way to full cannabis legalization and the creation of a robust medical program, but there is more work to be done to ensure everyone has equal access under the law.

“The direct effect of passing this legislation is that thousands of Ohio veterans and disabled citizens still do not qualify for the required certification under the bill’s stringent medical condition process,” said Jake Cabrera Chief Organizer of Ohioans to End Prohibition (OTEP/Legalize2016) and the president of Central Ohio NORML,

“Many Ohioans feel like they are in a ‘hollow place,’ but recognize the war is not close to being over with the passage of this bill,” added Cabrera, who rallied thousands of veterans across Ohio to collect signatures for the bill.

As a result of the whirlwind, petition, approval & passage of the Ohio legislation, the medical cannabis community still has work to do to prevent looming medical ethics violations. Not included within Ohio’s newest legislation are true protections for medical patients, such as veterans, who consume cannabis. Employers, including the Ohio government, can drug test & fire cannabis patients removing their ability to qualify for unemployment compensation.
