Colorado legislators working to draft marijuana DUI bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, July, 25th 2015 by THCFinder

DENVER - Driving high and driving drunk carry the same charge in Colorado, and that's a problem for those who want to track the impact, if any, of legalized marijuana on the safety of the state's roads and highways.

It's impossible to break out state-wide statistics about the number of convictions for driving under the influence of marijuana or other drugs. The charges and convictions are all lumped together under the same impaired driving statute.

That's a problem, says Rep. Jon Keyser, R-Morrison, who will propose a bill in the 2016 legislative session to enable marijuana-related driving offenses to be tracked.


"The motivation is really to be able to have a real discussion with real numbers and real data," Keyser said. "If this is a problem we definitely need to address it, but right now we can't even say if it's a problem."

Bay Area Pot Company Sends Doctor To Your House

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, July, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

A Bay Area medical marijuana company is hoping to turn the industry on its head, by sending the doctor and the pot right to your doorstep.

"Meadow is medical marijuana on demand," said David Hua. His website,, is a one-stop shop for legal cannabis.

In 1996, California voters passed Proposition 215, making the Golden State the first to allow medical use of marijuana. Since then, 22 more states, the District of Columbia and Guam have passed similar laws.

In August of 2013, the federal government relaxed drug enforcement in states where marijuana is regulated. The move opened the door for businesses like Meadow to operate legally.

Meadow's newest program is called Cannabis MD. They send a medical doctor to your door to talk about cannabis.

"Typically, I'll come in, introduce myself to the patient, we'll sit down and I'll talk to them quite a bit about what they are looking for relief from," said Dr. Dan Price.

How ‘Medical’ Is Marijuana?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, July, 20th 2015 by THCFinder

It is becoming easier to get marijuana, legally. In the last 20 years or so, 23 states, as well as the District of Columbia, have passed laws that make it legal to use marijuana for medical treatments. So have some countries, like Austria, Canada, Finland, Germany, Israel and Spain.
Advocates believe that this has allowed many with intractable medical problems to receive a safe and effective therapy. Opponents argue that these benefits are overblown, and that advocates ignore the harms of marijuana. Mostly, opponents say that the real objective of medical marijuana is to make it easier for people to obtain it for recreational purposes.
Both sides have a point. Research exists, however, that can help clarify what we do and don’t know about medical marijuana.
A recent systematic review published in The Journal of the American Medical Association looked at all randomized controlled trials of cannabis or cannabinoids to treat medical conditions. They found 79 trials involving more than 6,400 participants. A lot of the trials did show some improvements in symptoms, but most of those did not achieve statistical significance. Some did, however.


Hawaii To License Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

Fifteen years after Hawaii legalized medical marijuana, Governor David Ige signed the state’s medical marijuana dispensary bill into law, which will allow eight dispensaries to begin selling medical marijuana by November 2016. 

Until now, Hawaii’s 13,000 licensed patients had to grow their own pot or buy it on the black market.

Gov. David Ige also signed an accompanying bill that bans discrimination against medical marijuana patients. 

The new law prohibits counties from enacting zoning regulations that discriminate against licensed dispensaries and production centers. It also allows for the legal transport of medical marijuana in any public place, under certain conditions by qualified patients, primary caregivers or owners/employees of medical marijuana production centers and dispensaries.

“I support the establishment of dispensaries to ensure that qualified patients can legally and safely access medical marijuana,” said Governor Ige, as reported in MauiNow.

“The bill sets a timeline,” Ige said in a statement. “We will make a good-faith effort to create a fair process that will help the people most in need.”

Colorado rejects medical marijuana use for PTSD

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, July, 15th 2015 by THCFinder

Citing scant research, Colorado health officials voted Wednesday against adding post-traumatic stress disorder to the list of ailments eligible for treatment with medical marijuana.

The 6-2 vote came despite a recommendation from the Colorado Chief Medical Officer and a panel of physicians to make PTSD the first condition added to Colorado's medical pot eligibility list in 15 years. Board members said they weren't swayed by the recommendation because studies on using pot for PTSD are lacking.

"We can't have physicians counseling people in favor of it because we don't have data to show it's correct," said Jill Hunsaker-Ryan, one of the board members who voted no.

The vote was the third time the board has rejected petitions to add PTSD to the list. About five dozen PTSD sufferers attended the hearing, some loudly jeering. A few were asked to leave.

"They just told every patient here, 'We don't care about you,'" said patient advocate Teri Robnett after the vote.

Colorado allows adults over 21 to buy recreational pot, with no doctor's recommendation needed. But medical pot is taxed at 2.9 percent, compared to at least 19 percent for recreational pot.

child protective services cps medical marijuana kids children parentsA staggering 85% of respondents in an impartial MLive online poll said they want Michigan’s sick children to have access to medical marijuana.

The poll was conducted on July 6 with 2,295 people participating. A followup article detailed the results and included some comments from readers. 85.77% of respondents said ‘YES’ and 14.23% said ‘NO’ to the following question:

“Do you think minors should use medical marijuana?”

MLive is a huge media source in Michigan, an umbrella that includes the print and online versions of many newspapers across the state.

The poll was conducted after the release of a story by reporter Jiquanda Johnson featuring Grand Blanc Township mother Ida Chinonis and her 6-year old daughter Bella, who suffers from renal failure, a genetic disorder and holes in her heart. Bella’s treatment: cannabis oil. She now stands on her own, interacts with others and loves the movie ‘Frozen,’ all things she wasn’t able to do before the oil became part of her life.

“As of April 2015, there were 150 patients under the age of 18 registered with the state of Michigan to use medical marijuana,” per the article. In 2012, only 44 children were registered.
