Arkansas Will Be Voting On Medical Marijuana This November

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

This week, the Secretary of State’s office confirmed that the measure, Arkansans for Compassionate Care, had submitted enough signatures from voters in the state to qualify the measure for the November ballot.

The measure would allow for medical cannabis to be produced, tested, and distributed to patients diagnosed by a physician. Qualifications for accessing a medical marijuana card is specified as a patient having one of over 50 qualifying conditions that can be bought at one of the 38 licensed nonprofit care centers. In order for patients to grow their own marijuana, they must receive a ‘hardship certificate’ that states they do not live a reasonable distance from one of the care centers.

Law Enforcement Group Endorses California’s Proposal for Legalization

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 15th 2016 by THCFinder

CALIFORNIA – The group, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) recently announced their endorsement of California’s Adult Use of Marijuana Act.

The initiative will be on the ballot this November under Prop 64, and is set to legalize and regulate recreational marijuana for adults. Additionally, Prop 64 would increase privacy protections for medical marijuana patients who have required medical marijuana identification cards, allow courts to re-sentence many prisoners serving time for marijuana offenses, and re-designate or dismiss many marijuana offenses from the criminal records of those who have already served out their sentences. Tax revenue from marijuana sales would be allocated for bolstering communities that have been disparately impacted by the War on Drugs, most notably communities of color. Tax revenues would also be given to law enforcement agencies to improve detection of impaired drivers.

Fed Up with Federal Barriers, American Researchers Take Action

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, July, 13th 2016 by THCFinder

A couple of researchers from the University of New Mexico wrote a letter in Science magazine, of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), about the ridiculous hurdles medical researchers face when it comes to studying cannabis.

“Our report was just a short (but much overdue) opinion piece designed to inform the general medical and scientific communities as to some major problems with our research system here in the U.S.,” wrote one of the authors, Jacob Miguel Vigil, PhD in an email.

Vigil has been trying to conduct traditional clinical trials using the plant for a few years. He sees strong local support, but is frustrated with what he calls, “the reality of the federal constraints” on marijuana studies.

Case to Get Medical Marijuana for PTSD Heads to Court in Colorado

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

Denver, CO –  The law firm, Hoban & Feola’s Denver team filed a historic case in the Colorado Court of Appeals on behalf of Plaintiffs who wish to obtain medical cannabis recommendations for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The firm is set to bring national attention with this case, similar to the 2009 Centennial case which led to creation of the commercial cannabis market in Colorado and beyond. Similarly, the ruling in this current PTSD case could set a national precedent, affecting the entire industry.

Founded in 2008, Hoban & Feola is the fastest growing national law firm specializing in cannabis and hemp law and policy.

Medicare Prescription Costs Drop in Wake of Legalized MMJ

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

While it has been rumored for years that the legalization of medical marijuana in the United States would begin to empty the pockets of the big pharmaceutical companies by making profitable prescription drugs obsolete, a new report indicates that this scenario may not be too far fetched.

In states that have legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes, some of the latest research shows that Medicare claims for prescription medications are on the decline. A study published this week in Health Affairs finds that expenditures for Medicare Part D – the portion of the program that covers prescription costs – are down in medical marijuana states for drugs used to treat conditions ranging from anxiety to chronic pain because patients seem to be gravitating towards the herb as alternative to popping pills.
