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.

Harmful Medical Marijuana Tax Bills Advance In California

(via dailyfinance.com)

Marijuana taxes are a two edged sword. On one hand, the tax revenues that the marijuana industry generates (or can generate) are very popular with the public and elected officials. But on the other hand, if taxes are too high, it can really hurt the cannabis consumers that rely on safe access the most. Marijuana can absolutely be taxed too much, and unfortunately that’s exactly how some politicians in California would have it. See the troubling alert that I received below:

Two bills that would impose new taxes on medical marijuana patients advanced out of committee on Friday, and will soon face floor votes — one in the Senate and one in the Assembly. Either bill alone would place a new financial burden on patients. Together, they are a one-two punch that could create a huge, out-of-pocket cost for medicine.

SB 987 would add a 15% tax for patients in addition to the sales tax they already pay. AB 2243 layers in additional taxes that businesses would pay. Both types of taxes would come out of the purses and wallets of patients, who often have limited incomes. No insurance company currently helps offset the costs of medical marijuana.

What Would It Take To Reform Marijuana Rules In Professional Sports?

Major League Baseball (MLB) and the National Basketball Association (NBA) both randomly drug test players for the presence of marijuana. The National Football League (NFL) does as well. All three professional sports leagues consider marijuana to be a ‘substance of abuse.’ The National Hockey League (NHL) on the other hand only tests for ‘performance enhancing substances,’ of which marijuana is not included.

You don’t hear as many stories about baseball players getting overly harsh penalties for failing drug tests for marijuana, but the NBA and NFL are full of horror stories. The NFL and NBA are particularly harsh when it comes to penalties for marijuana use. The league policies are harmful to the health of players, who are allowed to consume pharmaceutical painkillers and alcohol virtually unchecked. By pushing players away from cannabis and towards more harmful substances, the league is really putting players’ health in jeopardy.

Professional sports leagues’ drug testing policies are ruining lives. Josh Gordon, a wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns (NFL team), is a good example of that. Josh Gordon has failed the leagues’ drug test multiple times because of marijuana use, with a bigger penalty being handed down each time. Josh Gordon was suspended for an entire season because he had traces of marijuana in his system. The first test was below the threshold. The second test was barelyabove the limit. The traces were so low that they could literally have been from second hand cannabis smoke. Josh Gordon is currently on indefinite suspension from the NFL for his most recent drug test failure.

State House passes changes to medical marijuana pilot program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, May, 30th 2016 by THCFinder

Medical marijuana advocates in Illinois won a big victory in the waning hours of the legislature's spring session.

The Illinois House passed a measure on Monday that would change the program's expiration date to 2020, expand the number of qualifying conditions and make it easier for patients to access medical marijuana.

In a rare display of bipartisanship, Republicans Gov. Bruce Rauner and House Minority Leader Jim Durkin reached an agreement with Democratic state Rep. Lou Lang to extend the medical marijuana pilot program.

Last week the Toronto Police Department raided dozens of medical marijuana dispensaries as part of ‘Project Claudia.’ The raids were a huge waste of money. I saw one activist post that it cost as much as 2.5 million dollars to carry out the raids. This of course coming at a time when support for medical marijuana in Canada is overwhelming, and the country is in discussions to legalize cannabis for adults for all uses. Below is the official press release from the Toronto Police Department which lists the exact locations raided.
