Medical Marijuana

Ravens lineman pushing marijuana on the NFL

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, June, 6th 2016 by THCFinder

 Eugene Monroe made up his mind, his conviction steeled by obsessive research. He would advocate publicly for medical marijuana use in the NFL. He knew he would raise eyebrows inside a powerful, conservative institution. He understood it might jeopardize his career as a Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman.

And the first skeptic he faced was his wife, Nureya.

When Monroe first shared his self-appointed mission in December, Nureya was confused. She had understood marijuana as illegal and dangerous since childhood, and ever since they met at the University of Virginia, she’d known her husband as a heath-shake-chugging, gluten-free, dairy-free, pescatarian athlete who didn’t use marijuana.

Even if medical marijuana is legalized in Ohio, your boss could fire you for using it

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, June, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

Even if Ohio Gov. John Kasich signs into law a bill legalizing medical marijuana, some patients could be stopped from treatment by their employers.

The bill passed by the state legislature last month would allow individuals to use, but not smoke, marijuana with a physician's permission. However, the bill also allows employers to keep drug-free workplace policies. That means as long as employers express the policy upfront, they have the right to fire, or choose not to hire, an individual based on marijuana use, even if that employee has permission to use the drug.

Marijuana, unlike prescription painkillers, is still considered a Schedule 1 drug at a federal level, said Rep. Stephen Huffman, R-Tipp City, who sponsored the bill. Although there are regulations in place protecting an individual's right to take legally prescribed drugs, those do not apply to marijuana.

FDA Looking to Canada to Learn More About Regulating Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, June, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

While the United States government continues to try to convince the average citizen that marijuana is one of the most dangerous substances in the world, a smoke signal has been seen rising up over the horizon from Washington D.C. that could be an indication that Uncle Sam’s longtime opposition to cannabis may be on the verge of change.

It seems the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is looking to Canada in hopes of learning more about how to regulate a nationwide medical marijuana market. A recent report fromMarijuana.com indicates the health agency has assigned a panel that will dissect the current marijuana policies in the northern nation later this month in order to get firm grip on the “regulatory framework for the regulation of marijuana for medicinal purposes,” including “information on the licensing process, compliance and enforcement and market statistics.”

California: SB 987 Would Impose A 15% Medical Marijuana Tax

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, June, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

cannabis marijuana tax taxpayer cost prohibitionA funny thing occurs in the world of politics when it comes to marijuana taxes. The word ‘tax’ is a trigger word in politics, and is not a popular thing, which is why politicians try to avoid using the word. In California, new taxes come with some serious hurdles to jump, which is why some politicians are trying to get crafty when it comes to creating a new medical marijuana tax for patients purchasing medicine. See the legislative alert that I received below out of California:

Desperate members of the California Senate are now trying to side-step constitutional protections in an effort to stick medical marijuana patients with a tax. The state constitution requires tax bills to pass with a two-thirds vote, but lawmakers are making a shameful attempt to get around that requirement to raise revenue off the backs of the sick by simply replacing the word “tax” with “user fee.”

Click here right now to tell your senator you won’t stand for it.

SB 987 would impose a 15% tax for the sale of medical marijuana to patients. Ever since the bill was introduced back in February, the purpose of the bill was clear — it meant to tax sick people who rely on medical marijuana. Measures like this are particularly harmful for patients who often have limited incomes and who face serious illnesses. And no insurance company currently covers the cost of medical marijuana.

Ohio Medical Marijuana Group Accused of Striking Deal With State Legislature

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, June, 2nd 2016 by THCFinder

Despite rumors suggesting that the Ohio legislature pressured marijuana advocates to back down from their efforts to put a medical marijuana initiative on the November ballot, organizers with Ohioans for Medical Marijuana say the decision to abandon the campaign was not the result of any strong-arm tactics or political promises—the group simply could not compete with the cutthroat tenacity of state lawmakers. 

On Saturday, cannabis advocates across the United States were shocked to learn that the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), the national advocacy group backing the Ohio ballot measure, had pulled the plug on its fight to bring a comprehensive medical marijuana program to the Buckeye State. The news of the suspended campaign came just days after the state legislature managed to push through a medical marijuana measure (House Bill 523) of its own—making good on its promise to get the proposal to the desk of Governor John Kasich before the end of the month.

New York’s Cannabis Growers Lobby for More Medical Patients

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

New York’s medical marijuana program is considered one of the most restrictive in the nation, a ragtag system currently providing fewer than 4,000 patients across the entire state with access to cannabis products. However, in an attempt to prevent the newfound industry from sinking into the depths of impoverishment, the five companies selected by the state to cultivate and distribute this alternative treatment option to people suffering from serious or life threatening conditions have banded together in an effort to persuade lawmakers to support upgrades to the Compassionate Care Act.

Since the program was launched at the beginning of the year, the 20 medical marijuana dispensaries responsible for servicing patients throughout the state have listened to crickets predicting bankruptcy if adjustments are not made, and soon, to provide more people with the freedom to choose weed over the pharmaceutical circus. It is for this reason that, for the sake of longevity, the five companies that make up the market have formed the Medicinal Cannabis Industry Association – a lobby group hoping to convince more members of the NY General Assembly to expand the program before it chokes on its own conservative leash.
