Start-Up Slow for Louisiana’s Medical Marijuana Program

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, October, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — No purses or briefcases allowed. Only transparent trash bags can be used. Randomized routes and delivery times demanded for the product, moved in unmarked vehicles. Constant surveillance expected.

Piecing together a medical marijuana program in a conservative Southern state like Louisiana involves reams of regulations, tightly-controlled growing operations and a slow selection process for the primary players.

Patients eligible for the drug under a law passed more than two years ago remain an estimated eight to 10 months away from having therapeutic marijuana in hand, with growing facilities still to be renovated and dispensing pharmacies still to be chosen.

The facilities will face intense scrutiny — and the whole program faces a legislative review after it gets up and running to determine if it will exist beyond Jan. 1, 2020.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, October, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

According to reports, Florida will not meet the deadline for medical marijuana licenses. In light of this news, residents are becoming increasingly frustrated. Considering the constant delays and limitations of their state’s medical marijuana program, their feelings are justified.

After months of waiting, officials have announced that new medical marijuana growers will not be receiving their state-issued licenses to cultivate their crop. And therefore, they will not be able to sell it on time. 

MEDICAL MARIJUANA IN FLORIDA

As outlined in an amendment passed earlier this summer, Florida health officials were supposed to distribute 10 medical marijuana licenses by Tuesday, October 3 to growers.

Is This a New Surprising Side-Effect of Medical Marijuana?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, October, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

A recent report claims that an unintentional, surprising side-effect of medical marijuana has emerged: the likeliness that more people will make Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims. But while the study, which was conducted by researchers at Temple University, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Cincinnati, posits their theory on figures provided by data from the 1990 to 2013 Current Population Survey by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, are the reasons behind this correlation as definitive?

MMJ AND SSDI: FACTS AND FIGURES

According to the report—which is categorized as a “working paper,” or one in its preliminary stages—states where MMJ is legalized experienced a 9.9 percent increase in SSDI claims, as well as a 2.6 percent increase in SSDI benefits.

Philippines House Committee Green Lights Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, September, 30th 2017 by THCFinder

Despite the fact that the Philippines has become the murder capital of the world when it comes to dealing with its drug offenders, the nation’s legislative forces are giving serious consideration to a proposal that could lead to the legalization of marijuana for medicinal use. The Philippines house committee has so far been particularly open to the idea.

EARLY APPROVAL BY PHILIPPINES HOUSE COMMITTEE

According to a report from CNN, a House committee recently put its stamp of approval on a bill called the “Philippine Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act,” which would allow patients suffering from a variety of conditions to have access to cannabis products.

The measure, which was brought to the table by Isabela First District Representative Rodolfo Albano, is similar to some of the medical marijuana laws that have been passed recently in the United States.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, September, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

According to researchers, a new study finds that 25 percent of all cancer patients use medical marijuana. “All cancer patients” in this case refers to the over 900 cancer patients who participated in the research. The other findings of this study confirm two things: cancer patients may find relief from medical cannabis. And they want to get more information about it.

THE STUDY

Cancer researchers based in Seattle, Washington conducted this study by surveying 926 cancer patients. All of the patients lived in Washington, where cannabis is legal for both medicinal and recreational purposes. The ages of the patients involved in the study ranged from 46 to 66 years old, although the median age of the participants was 58. The purpose of the study was to get an idea of how many cancer patients use cannabis.
