Michigan House Unveils Brand-New Medical Marijuana Provisioning Centers Act

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, August, 15th 2015 by THCFinder

michigan marijuanaA yer and a half ago the Michigan House of Representatives passed the Provisioning Centers Act and the associated Smoking Alternatives Bills by near-unanimous consent. They were not voted on before the 2013-14 session expired and were reintroduced this year. On Tuesday a new version of those bills will be presented to the House Judiciary Committee that look almost nothing like the proposals that had the support of the medical marijuana community.

Although there exists no public copies of the newest drafts of HB 4209 and HB 4210, some things are known. These bills will not allow caregivers to sell their overages to a dispensary. Any cannabis sold to any dispensary, called Provisioning Centers, will have to be intentionally created for commercial distribution in licensed commercial grow operations of from 500 – 1,500 plants, the rumors say, with the exception of a caregiver selling to their five patients and ONLY their five patients.

Some of these issues were discussed on the Planet Green Trees Radio Show, on an episode featuring Robin Schneider of the National Patients Rights Association. The NPRA has been moderating the decline of the bills as best they can, but newcomers in the game of lobbying legislators have diverted the intent from being a patient-friendly bill to one that unzips the pants of big business.

“This could be the end of the caregiver system as we know it,” Jim Powers noted on that episode of the Planet Green Trees Radio Show. Powers has haunted the House and Senate chambers for two years, pushing the lawmakers to enact legislation to protect the non-smoked forms of cannabis used by his son Ryan and other pediatric cannabis patients across the state. That bill – HB 4210- is tied to the fate of the Provisioning Centers Act.

As it grows, marijuana business becomes more tech savvy

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, August, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

When he first began buying medical marijuana to treat his multiple sclerosis, Mark Manasse was forced to visit a dispensary every time he needed to get fresh buds.

But thanks to a host of new apps like Quil, he can order the marijuana from his home in California and wait for the delivery to arrive in less than an hour - much like you would a pizza.

"I like that they show me the expected delivery time so I can figure out, OK, I had better finish cooking dinner then, so I can be ready for when the delivery arrives," Manasse told CNET.com's Lexy Savvides.

The delivery apps are part of a growing push by the cannabis industry to bring technology to bear on everything from growing and testing to selling and delivering their product. And with the medical marijuana sector legal in 23 states and Washington, D.C. and becoming big business in places like California, where sales reached $1.1 billion last year, there is no shortage of entrepreneurs and investors interested in getting in on the action.

Backers of Denver initiative allowing marijuana in bars deliver petitions, await ballot certification

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, August, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

Whether Denver voters in November will face a choice about allowing patrons to use marijuana in bars and some other businesses wasn’t in dispute Monday, though ballot certification still could be weeks away.

Instead, the city attorney’s office and the initiative’s backers, who said they turned in more 10,700 petition signatures — more than twice as many as needed — continued to air a longstanding debate. It centers on state law’s prohibition on using marijuana “openly and publicly”and if that law would trump any local decision to allow vaping or edibles inside privately owned (but publicly accessible) bars or other establishments.

The adoption of the initiated ordinance in Denver will create a serious conflict with state law, and may prompt the General Assembly to address the subject of public consumption of marijuana on a statewide basis as early as the 2016 session,” assistant city attorney  wrote in a new memo sent to the City Council on Monday.

Maryland native dubbed 'marijuana mogul' in Colorado

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, August, 9th 2015 by THCFinder

The first time Brian Rogers took a bong hit at a party with his Havre de Grace High School friends, he said marijuana had no effect on him.
 
Now Rogers co-owns a multimillion-dollar marijuana company in Colorado at the center of the CNN docu-series, "High Profits," and he's no longer ambivalent.
 
"It's changed my life," the 34-year-old Harford County native said.
 
While recreational marijuana is illegal in 46 states — including Maryland — Colorado has been at the forefront of the legalization movement. And Rogers has been at the forefront of capitalizing on it.
 
Rogers and his girlfriend, 25-year-old Caitlin McGuire, opened the Breckenridge Cannabis Club in 2010 when marijuana was legal for medicinal purposes exclusively. Since then Colorado has legalized cannabis for recreational purposes, and Rogers has expanded his operation, becoming known as a "marijuana mogul" on cable TV.

Drones Now Delivering Medical Marijuana In California

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, August, 8th 2015 by THCFinder

A company near San Francisco has come up with a novel way to deliver bitcoin-purchased marijuana, via drone.

Trees, which claims to sell the “highest quality” medicinal cannabis to people holding a medical recommendation, accepts payments in bitcoin alongside traditional payment methods such as cash, online bank transfer and credit cards.

A spokesperson for the company confirmed that drone deliveries were not currently available, due to local regulations. The drone delivery option, the spokesperson said, would be rolled-out in the future if and when the regulation around the flying devices settled. Currently users will get their packages delivered by “old fashioned in-house drivers”.

For now, users are required to provide their Californian driving license and medical cannabis recommendation when ordering online. To get medical approval, consumers must have a short evaluation with a doctor, either online or at a clinic.

Users must give the medical reason for their use of cannabis, declare any pre-existing health conditions, confirm whether they’ve used cannabis before and state their preferred method of ingestion.

Arizona Youngster First to Use Cannabis Oil at Summer Camp

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, August, 7th 2015 by THCFinder

An 11-year-old epilepsy patient from Mesa, Arizona is reportedly the first youngster to openly use cannabis oil at Camp Candlelight – a special summer getaway for children who suffer from this debilitating seizure disorder. 

According to a report in the Arizona Republic, Mercedes Gonzales, who was first diagnosed with epilepsy at the tender age of three, is attending the summer camp for the first time this year, all with the help of a high-CBD strain of medical marijuana to help calm the frequency of her seizures. 

To ensure Mercedes is well enough to take full advantage of activities such as: “rock climbing, high ropes course, s’mores around the campfire, paintball, and swimming,” the camp has enlisted the help of a volunteer from a nearby dispensary to provide her with the appropriate dosages.
Family members say Mercedes was dreadfully unsuccessful with 23 different epilepsy drugs before making a triumphant recovery with cannabis oil. In addition to not effectively managing the young girl’s 30 seizures per month, the pharmaceuticals were ripping the life right out her, forcing her to live in a constant state of catatonic despair.
