Stanton Municipal Medical Cannabis Ballot Measure Campaign Announcement

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

stanton california marijuanaFor those who want verification aside from the word document, I believe one can do a public records check with the city clerk for the documents if one wishes.

On December 22, 2015 the Stanton City Clerk returned the Stanton City Attorney’s Title and Summary of Stanton Patients Access PAC’s initiative. Next week we will be publishing a legal notice of the title and summary & notice of intent filed with the city clerk to comply with the Elections Code and should begin collecting the signatures in early March.

Speaking about the municipal ballot initiative launch, campaign strategist Jason Aula said:

“Currently the City has a ban on medical cannabis, and since the City of Stanton has dropped the ball on the MMJ policy so much, this is a prime chance for Stanton to lead the way on this policy and set municipal precedent across the state. This measure will set unprecedented municipal regulation in CA aside from the policy the City of Berkeley has in place. The history of Stanton is commercial rooted in the principles of capitalism. The green rush has come to Orange County, considering Stanton is a red city we want to show conservative cities support medical cannabis too!.

‘With our campaign “dream team” mobilized we have Stanton resident Rubi Arellano as the proponent, prominent medical cannabis attorney Matthew Pappas, and Jason Aula as the campaigns political consultant.

Pot Cultivation Replaces Prison Economy in California Town

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, February, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

Adelanto, a poor city in San Bernardino County, was traditionally known for its fruit orchards and cider before it got into the mass incarceration business over two decades ago, when it welcomed the building of four prisons on its relatively small land area.

For the town’s 32,000 inhabitants—one-third living below federal poverty levels—prison jobs sounded good.

Today, however, another industry is tapping on the entrance of this semi-arid Mojave Desert town with an even better offer.

Last November, Adelanto, which means progress in Spanish, became the second city in Southern California to permit commercial cultivation of medical marijuana.

Long-Term Marijuana Use Associated With Improved Pain Relief, Reduced Opioid Use

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, February, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

pharmacy medical marijuana michiganBy Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director

The long-term, daily use of cannabis is associated with improved analgesia and reduced opioid use in patients with treatment-resistant chronic pain conditions, according to clinical trial data reported online ahead of print in The Clinical Journal of Pain.

Investigators with Hebrew University in Israel evaluated the use of cannabis on pain in a cohort of 176 patients, each of whom had been previously unresponsive to all conventional pain medications. Subjects inhaled THC-dominant cannabis daily (up to 20 grams per month) for a period of at least six months.

A majority of participants (66 percent) experienced improvement in their pain symptom scores after cannabis therapy, and most reported “robust” improvements in their quality of life. Subjects’ overall consumption of opioid drugs declined 44 percent by the end of the trial, and a significant percentage of participants discontinued opioid therapy altogether over the course of the study.

Marijuana for Your Migraine

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, February, 22nd 2016 by THCFinder

From chronic anxiety to seizures, there's a laundry list of ailments medical marijuana is suspected to alleviate. You can add migraine headaches to that list. A new study from the University of Colorado found that marijuana had a significant impact in either preventing or getting rid of migraines in 121 migraine patients at two Colorado dispensaries studied over a four-year period.

The patients, who smoked, used vaporizers, or ate marijuana edibles reported that their migraines decreased from 10.4 to 4.6 per month. In all, 103 said they experienced fewer migraines — that is, 85 percent of the participants. Nearly 40 percent said they experienced positive results by preventing migraines altogether or nipping them in the bud when they started. Inhaled forms were most effective in treating acute migraine symptoms, and edibles resulted in the most side effects, including drowsiness, subjects said. People who used edibles also reported that they had trouble controlling the intensity and timing of effects, as edibles kick in more slowly than other forms.

State Senate Passes Marijuana Reform Law, Allows Oil for Epileptics

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, February, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

RICHMOND, Va (WVIR) -

The Virginia Senate passed a bill that will allow the production and manufacturing of two different marijuana oils for patients with epilepsy. It's called the Medical Marijuana Program Improvement bill.    

Last year, two bills gave epilepsy patients a defense if found in possession of cannabis oils. But, the law provided no way for patients to actually obtain the oils without breaking federal and state laws.

That's where this latest bill would change things.

"People suffer everyday because they don't have the proper medication or what they do have makes them more sick, and research has shown that cannabis oil can really improve their conditions and bring them on the road to recovery,” Jes Bossems, director of Jefferson Area National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), said.

CBD Medicines Face New National Challenges

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, February, 20th 2016 by THCFinder

cbdThe Cannabis Benchmarks Weekly Report tells us that a half-dozen companies who market CBD-laden medicines and foods were sent letters this month from the FDA warning them against making claims of health benefits.

CBD is the shortened name of cannabidiol, a phytocannabinoid chemical prevalent in cannabis, especially when plants are specifically bred by master growers to express this characteristic. CBD medicines are currently available to patients in 23 licensed medical marijuana states, the District of Columbia, and 15 additional states where CBD-based treatments are the only form of medical marijuana legally available to citizens.

Six American companies that market and sell CBD products received letters from the FDA this month, warning them about language used on their websites. New Cannabis Ventures, the Benchmarks publisher, claims it is “the FDA’s opinion that even marketing CBD products as a dietary supplement is at this time against the law.”

They cite this passage from one of the letters authored by the Food and Drug Administration:

“If a substance (such as CBD) has been authorized for investigation as a new drug for which substantial clinical investigations have been instituted and for which the existence of such investigations has been made public, then products containing that substance are outside the definition of a dietary supplement. There is an exception if the substance was “marketed as” a dietary supplement or a conventional food before the new drug investigations were authorized; however, based on available evidence, FDA has concluded that this is not the case for CBD.”
