Medical marijuana delays punish patients

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-delays-hurt-patients
Gov. Chris Christie plays politics in delaying the state’s medical marijuana program. He fights to keep children from being able to have edible forms of the medicine. He fights to restrict the kinds of medical cannabis permitted. He fights to restrict the number of distribution points and greatly restricts the licenses he grants to grow. More of our licensees are cronies or tied to the pharmaceutical industry than in any other state.
Medical cannabis patients don’t count these delays in months or years. They count them in seizures, unhealthy pounds dropped, PTSD suicides, days of vomiting, intractable pain and crippling spasms. They count them in addictions to legal painkillers and AIDS and cancer deaths.
 
Clearly, the governor does not understand this. The only way to consider delaying medical treatments is to deny the seriousness of medical cannabis patients’ illnesses and the efficacy of cannabis treatments. In insisting on this ill-informed view, he defaults on his responsibility. As governor, the Compassionate Medical Marijuana Use Act ostensibly binds him to respect both.

Oklahoma: Majority Of Voters Endorse Marijuana Law Reform

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
ok-mmj-legalization-pushOklahoma, City, OK: A majority of likely Oklahoma voters back legalizing the use of medical marijuana and also support depenalizing pot possession penalties for recreational users, according to survey data released by SoonerPoll.com and commissioned by the Oklahoma state affiliate of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML).
 
Seventy-one percent of respondents said that they support amending state law to allow for physician-authorized patients to consume cannabis for therapeutic purposes. Twenty states and Washington, DC, have enacted similar policies since 1996.
 
Oklahoma citizens also strongly backed amending state criminal laws that presently outlaw the plant’s social use. Fifty-seven percent of respondents said that they preferred treating minor marijuana violations as a non-criminal, fine-only offense. Violators of such a policy would not be subject to arrest, face jail time, or receive a criminal record. Sixteen states already impose similar ‘depenalization’ policies. Two states, Colorado and Washington, have eliminated all criminal and civil penalties surrounding the possession of small quantities of marijuana by adults.
 
Finally, over 81 percent of Oklahoma respondents agreed that state lawmakers, not the federal government, ought to be the final arbiters to decide whether “[state] laws regarding whether the use of marijuana [are] legal or not.”

Medical marijuana registry numbers on the rise despite confidentiality breaches

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, September, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-registration-numbers-risingThe Colorado medical marijuana patient registry saw the largest increase in active patient numbers in months this summer, growing by 2,475 patients to 109,292 people from June to July.
The Department of Revenue received a total of 3,514 applications during that time period and hasn't reported any denials. That means as many as 1,039 additional new patients were added to the registry, although that number could be offset by people dropping off or not renewing.
 
The passage of Amendment 64, which legalized the possession, sale and cultivation of cannabis in limited amounts, was predicted to reduce the number of patients on the registry, but the growing figures some nine months after A64's passage seem to tell a different story.
 
Part of that could be because the next chapter -- recreational marijuana sales -- has yet to begin. But it could also indicate that medical marijuana patients who purchase pot at dispensaries will keep their cards in order to avoid paying a 30-40 percent tax rate (and possibly even more) for recreational cannabis.
 
Voters are being asked this November to approve a 25 percent tax on cannabis at the state level, with an excise tax applied to wholesale transactions. The handful of municipalities allowing recreational sales also plan to tack on special taxes, with proposals running from 3.5 percent (Denver) up to 15 percent on top of regular city and state sales taxes.
 
Put another way, a $100 half-ounce could require as much as $21 in sales tax. And that $100 could also be inflated: Some suggest that the additional 15 percent state excise tax will be passed on to consumers through higher retail prices.

New Study Finds Cannabis May Have Neuroprotective Effects

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, September, 18th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-may-have-neuroprotective-effectsA new study, published in the August edition of Neuropharmacology, has found that cannabis may serve as a neuroprotectant.
 
Researchers from the University Hospital Puerta de Hierro Majadahonda, in Madrid, Spain, examined the effect of CBD when applied to a hypoxic-ischemic (HI) brain injury model (most common in instances such as cardiac arrest, when blood flow stops or slows, and oxygen can’t effectively reach the brain). The scientists interrupted carotid blood flow and reduced oxygen intake levels to 10% in animal subjects for 30 minutes. The damage of the HI injury was immense:
 
HI decreased the number of viable neurons and affected the amplitude-integrated EEG background activity as well as different prognostic proton-magnetic-resonance-spectroscopy (H(±)-MRS)-detectable biomarkers (lactate/N-acetylaspartate and N-acetylaspartate/choline ratios). HI brain damage was also associated with increases in excitotoxicity (increased glutamate/N-acetylaspartate ratio), oxidative stress (decreased glutathione/creatine ratio and increased protein carbonylation) and inflammation (increased brain IL-1 levels).
 
However, upon administering CBD to the affected animals 30 minutes later, the scientists found incredible results: “CBD administration after HI prevented all these alterations”.
 
“In conclusion, our findings demonstrate that CBD exerts robust neuroprotective effects”, by “modulating excitotoxicity, oxidative stress and inflammation”.
