Petition: Tell Chris Christie to Sign Bill Adding PTSD as Medical Cannabis Condition

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, August, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

On August 1st New Jersey’s full legislature gave approval to Assembly Bill 457 which would add post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a qualifying medical cannabis condition. The vote in the Senate was 29 to 9; the vote in the Assembly was 56 to 13.

Now, the measure sits on the desk of Governor Chris Christie, who has the option of signing it into law, allowing it to become law without his signature, or vetoing it.

In response to this, a petition has been started calling on Governor Christie to quickly sign the measure into law, which would allow those with PTSD to use a medicine that research has continued to show is beneficial.

Appeals Court Bars Feds From Prosecuting Medical Marijuana Cases

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, August, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

A federal appeals court told the U.S. Department of Justice this week that it can no longer prosecute cases against medical marijuana businesses where the defendants are compliant with relevant state laws.

The ruling on Tuesday by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco comes despite the fact that marijuana remains illegal in any form on the federal level. Last week, DOJ agency the Drug Enforcement Administration declined to change marijuana’s classification as a Schedule 1 drug—the category reserved for the most dangerous drugs, such as heroin, that the federal government claims have no known medical application.

U.S. prosecutors dealt setback in medical marijuana cases

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, August, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

The U.S. Department of Justice cannot spend money to prosecute federal marijuana cases if the defendants comply with state guidelines that permit the drug's sale for medical purposes, a federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday.

The ruling, from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, comes as voters in nine more states will consider allowing the recreational or medical use of marijuana this November.

Texas Lawmakers and Activists Vow to Expand State’s Marijuana Laws in 2017

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, August, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

After the DEA’s decision last week not to reschedule cannabis, marijuana reform activists and state lawmakers in Texas say that they’re focused on changing state pot policy in the next legislative session.

According to the San Antonio Current, Heather Fazio, the Texas political director for the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), said that starting January 2017, activists have two main goals—expanding Texas’ limited and ineffective medical marijuana program and lowering criminal penalties for simple possession.

How To Get Your Medical Marijuana Card in New Jersey

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, August, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

STEP 1:  IF YOU QUALIFY, GATHER YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS PROVING THAT YOU HAVE A QUALIFYING CONDITION.

Read this article to find out who qualifies for medical marijuana in NJ.

STEP 2:  FIND A NEW JERSEY MARIJUANA DOCTOR.

In NJ, only specially registered physicians are able to write prescriptions for marijuana.  Go to the NJ MMP website and schedule an appointment with a doctor on the list.

YOU’LL FIND TWO TYPES OF DOCTORS:

Clinics that openly accept new patients.  It generally takes 3-months of visits before they can write the prescription for medical marijuana, this means you have to go to see them each month, three times in a row and on the third visit they can write a prescription.  This is how they legally establish a “bona fide” doctor-patient relationship as required by NJ state law.  (Morphine, however, a doctor can prescribe during the first visit with no limits).

New Medical Marijuana Policy Is a Catch-22, Researchers Say

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, August, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

Medical research on marijuanaprobably won't get any easier, experts say, despite a new government policy aimed at boosting the supply of the drug for medical studies.

That means the types of studies that are needed to address the safety and effectiveness of the drug as a medicine could still be a long way off.

Marijuana's legal status as a "Schedule I" drug, which makes it an illegal drug on the federal level, "severely constrains the access and the number and type of people who can do research with cannabis," said Ryan Vandrey, an associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine who studies marijuana. "The unfortunate result of that is that we're now in a situation where you have literally millions of people using a drug for which we don't have established safety or efficacy data," Vandrey said.
