Komorn Law Secures Release Of Child From CPS In Marijuana Custody Case

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, March, 27th 2016 by THCFinder

Max Lorincz marijuana cps michiganMax Lorincz and his wife will have custody of their six-year old son returned to them by court order in a Michigan case that made national headlines over a dispute with the State Police Crime Lab over marijuana testing.

Dante, the Lorincz’s son, was removed from his Spring Lake home after investigators charged Max with possession of synthetic marijuana- a felony in Michigan. Lorincz is a registered medical marijuana patient and has always claimed that the substance found by police during a search of his home- a “smear” of substance, so small it’s weight could not be quantified- was medicinal and derived from a natural plant source.

The case began not from an investigation into Lorincz, but with a 911 call from Max to get medical help for a family emergency not related to marijuana. While assisting with the emergency, police accidentally discovered the smear of suspicious substance and began criminal proceedings.

Marijuana Program Inspector- Detroit Job Listing

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, March, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

trichomes marijuana25 people so far have posted resumes in answer to a new job opening in the metro Detroit area: Medical Marijuana Program Inspector.

“Under direct supervision, incumbents perform the range of duties following specified protocols during the inspection of Medical Marijuana dispensaries. Inspection and investigative work is reviewed on an ongoing basis,” per the job listing. The posting also lists “Exposure to the odor and/or the handling of marijuana, marijuana products, and products used to cultivate marijuana” as a special requirement of the Inspector’s position.

Also listed: the need to “work effectively with frequent interruptions and distractions in locations such as dispensaries, and processing facilities.” This phrase stands out as odd: the City of Detroit did not authorize medical marijuana processing facilities in their Caregiver Center ordinance, and the Detroit ordinance is the only new one under which any new distribution centers are being licensed.

The advertisement was posted by the Southeastern Michigan Health Association, whose Executive Director is Gary Petroni and Deputy Director is Jeremy Andrews. Their website describes the organization as “a tax exempt nonprofit corporation, 501(c)(3), dedicated to improving community health by providing grant management, fiduciary, research, planning and other services.”

Owner Of The Baltimore Ravens Supports Eugene Monroe As He Calls For Medical Marijuana Research

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, March, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

Steve Bisciotti baltimore ravens marijuanaWhether you are a fan of sports or not, you should be a fan of Eugene Monroe. Eugene Monroe currently plays for the Baltimore Ravens in the National Football League (NFL), and has made a lot of headlines lately due to not only his calls for more research on how medical cannabis can help players, but he also put up a $10,000 donation towards researches while challenging other members of the NFL to do the same. Eugene Monroe talks the talk, and walks the walk.

I have said it many times since Eugene started advocating for cannabis research to the media – I absolutely admire his courage. There are a lot of retired athletes that are calling for marijuana reform in sports, but they have the benefit of not having to deal with the backlash while still having to go compete. I don’t want to take away from retired players, because their message is absolutely vital to reform in sports and in society too. Retired athletes like former NBA All Star Cliff Robinsonare changing a lot of minds and helping breakdown the stigma surrounding cannabis, and not just in sports. As I’ve said before, a lot of my grandma’s most conservative friends are now on the right side of history entirely because of Cliff’s advocacy. That’s powerful stuff.

Eugene Monroe’s advocacy is just as vital, because he’s looking forward. I’d imagine he’s looking forward and envisioning what the rest of his career is going to be like, and for that matter, what the rest of his life is going to be like. Eugene Monroe has taken a beating on the field many, many times. He has been injured and has had to have surgery on his knee. As with all NFL players, head injuries are a constant concern I’m sure. So when he says that there needs to be research done to see how medical cannabis can help players who are dealing with injuries, I absolutely respect where he’s coming from.

Oregon Health Authority To Offer Provisional Registration To Marijuana Extract Makers

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, March, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

dabs concentrates extracts bho shatterEarlier this week the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) issued a directive that no medical marijuana dispensaries were allowed to take in new marijuana extract inventory until licenses are issued to extract processors. There are currently no licenses, and the process to apply for a license doesn’t even open until the beginning of next month. The OHA directive literally put people out of business overnight. My Facebook feed was completely full of sad stories about companies laying off employees and people scrambling to figure out what they were going to do.

I’m very happy to say that OHA has announced that it will allow provisional registration to Oregon extract companies that submit complete applications starting April 1. So extract companies can’t start processing again today, but at least there is only a short wait. Below is an explanation of the change via the Oregon Cannabis Association:

The Oregon Health Authority has announced that beginning April 1, cannabis processors who submit completed applications for licensing through the OHA will be given a provisional registration that allows them to operate under OMMA rules until their licenses are approved. This means that extractors who follow the OHA’s rules and submit completed applications on April 1 will be able to resume operations, and that dispensaries will be allowed to accept transfers of extracts from registered processors.

Help Lobby Congress For Medical Marijuana Reform Today

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, March, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

congress medical marijuanaI received the following alert from Americans for Safe Access:

Hundreds of medical cannabis patients, researchers, advocates and other stakeholders are visiting lawmakers in Washington, DC, this morning to support the first comprehensive bipartisan federal medical cannabis reform bill ever introduced in the US Congress.

Participants in ASA’s National Medical Cannabis Unity Conference are on Capitol Hill to support the CARERS Act right now. Can you make three phone calls to help get that bill passed this year?

The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States (CARERS) Act is the most comprehensive piece of federal medical cannabis legislation that has ever been introduced in both the U.S. House and Senate. This bipartisan legislation would remedy the state/federal conflict over medical cannabis laws.

We are asking members nationwide to call their US Senators and US Representative and ask him or her to support the bill today. The timing matters. Hundreds of advocates are visiting offices right now. Your calls will be part of a powerful message about medical cannabis in Congress today.

Click here to find the telephone numbers for your federal representatives and a sample script for your phone call. It’s fast, easy, and makes a real difference!

Which State Has The Most Expensive Medical Marijuana?

There are many states in America that have legalized medical marijuana in some form. On one of the spectrum you have states like Oregon where home cultivation is allowed (albeit with lower limits than in the past) and there are dispensaries and a lot of qualifying conditions. On the other end of the spectrum you have states that have legalized CBD-only medical marijuana, with no place to purchase it or grow it. And of course there are many states that fall somewhere in between.

New Jersey is not all the way on the CBD-only end of the spectrum, but it’s definitely a state that has a very limited medical marijuana program. There are not a lot of patients because the list of qualifying conditions is small compared to many other states, and there’s even less outlets for medical marijuana. Patients are not allowed to grow their own medical marijuana, so literally the only legal way to obtain medical marijuana is from one of the handful of licensed outlets. Supply shortages are common I’m told from readers, and prices are through the roof. The prices are so high in New Jersey that it sounds like New Jersey’s own officials have stated that the prices are the highest in the nation. Per Marijuana Business Daily:

New Jersey’s five operating medical cannabis dispensaries may have the highest MMJ prices of any market in the country, according to the state’s own officials
