Montana - A plea from a user of medical marijuana
People across the country are having serious issues everyday and cannot obtain medical marijuana like those who are forutnate enough to do so. But now we are at a point where local governments are trying to take away what the people have voted for. Stand up and do your part to help keep medical marijuana strong and alive for those with serious ailments who count on it daily to ease their pain and let them live their lives.
Feds want to ban medical pot references at trial
Delawares medical marijuana laws slowly to a crawl...
The delay could last until 2013 before Delaware see's it's medical marijuana program take effect. Hopefully the stall doesn't last another 18 months and things move foward for medical marijuana patients in need of their medication.
Patient: Closing medical marijuana dispensary would be a 'disaster'
Is Californias new pot law good or bad for the industry?
Organizations are leaning on NO after this bill was just recently signed by Jerry Brown. With the passage of AB 1300, Cities and Counties are now allowed to completely ban and get rid of Dispensaries and cooperatives if they deem it necessary which many have already begun doing.
This goes against what California voters wanted when they passed prop 215 in 1996. If cities have the right to ban dispensaries and collectives then they are simply forcing medical patients to go to the streets to obtain their medication. We have never seen a city or county ban a CVS or Albertsons or any other place that people can go to pick up their medication so why are they pushing to close dispensaries that do the exact same thing?
Is it as simple as Marijuana is not in pill form so the masses still see it as this hardcore drug that it really is not? If instead of smoking marijuana we could take a pill that actually worked properly, would the people and cities and our governments feel the same way? At this point we don't know but what we do know is that this is getting out of hand and ridiculous.
Anyone who is sick has the right to obtain their medication regardless of what it is, people take Vicodin, Morphin pills, and much much stronger medication that has extremely harmful side effects and countless amounts of people dying every year from over the counter drugs. Our government needs to step up to the plate and start helping the sick people who's only option to get better is Marijuana.
arlier this summer, medical marijuana advocates sounded the legislative alarm over a bill penned by a Southern California assemblyman that gives local governments the right to ban medical cannabis dispensaries, as many a Bay Area burgh from Danville to Daly City has already done.
Both Americans for Safe Access and California NORML, which lobby for patients' rights and outright legalization, respectively, opposed AB 1300, authored by valley dude Assemblyman Bob Blumenfeld of Van Nuys, and begged Governor Jerry Brown not to sign it -- as Brown did yesterday.
So is this latest development a loss or a win; an abrogation of rights guaranteed to Californians under state medical marijuana law, or a recognition that medical marijuana distribution is a valid concept?
Depends on who you ask.
For folks on the ground, Blumenfield's bill actually does very little: The cities and counties that have banned medical marijuana dispensaries can continue to do so. Likewise, the places -- like San Francisco -- that have permitted them are unchanged, and the same with the municipalities that have punted the issue. Heads in the sand stay in the sand, et cetera
