Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Law: Here’s What You Should Know

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, September, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

Although Ohio’s newfound medical marijuana law will officially hit the books on Thursday, this means very little for patients needing immediate, legal access to the herb. In fact, no cultivation sites or dispensaries are expected to get down to business for another two years, which, unfortunately, puts those residents who are interested in participating in the program in a tough position: Do we wait out the system, or engage in the dangerous practice of smuggling in marijuana from a legal state?

When Governor John Kasich put his signature on House Bill 523 earlier this year, making Ohio the 26th state in the nation to legalize a comprehensive medical marijuana program, it came with a provision that allows the would-be-patients of the Buckeye State to obtain cannabis products from legal states—like neighboring Michigan. But the language of the law has confused many of the state’s residents (at least those without a law degree), which could potentially lead to some people catching some heat from the federal government.

The American Legion Wants Marijuana Reclassified to Help Treat PTSD

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, September, 7th 2016 by THCFinder

These aren't your filthy hippies and stoners looking for an excuse to toke (not that there's anything wrong with that!): The American Legion is calling for the federal government to reclassify marijuana to acknowledge its potential benefits as a medical treatment.

As Jacob Sullum previously noted, The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is stubbornly refusing to change the federal classification of marijuana as a drug that has no "accepted medical use" until science proves them wrong. Fortunately they're easing off on the Catch-22 situation that has resulted in this classification making it extremely difficult for researchers to perform the very scientific testing that could determine marijuana's medical value.

Study: Cannabis May Treat Vascular Dementia

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, September, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

According to a new study published in the journal Current Neurovascular Research, and e-published by the National Institute of Health, has found that activation of the CB2 receptors – something done naturally by cannabis – may treat vascular dementia.

According to the study’s researchers; “Vascular dementia is the highly devastating neurodegenerative disorder after Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and mainly found in aged people but the effectual therapeutic target is still not there.” In addition; “Chronic cerebral hypoperfusion (CCH) has been broadly found in vascular dementia (VaD) patients.” CCH is thought to “link with neurodegenerative disorders and their subsequent cognitive deteriorate on.”

For the study, researchers examined “the role of a selective agonist of cannabinoid receptor type 2(CB2); 1-phenylisatin in CCH induced VaD [using rat models].”

“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″, states the petition. “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.”

The Challenge Medical Marijuana Patients Probably Didn't See Coming

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, September, 5th 2016 by THCFinder

While the United States government refuses to admit the cannabis plant has any real medicinal benefit, its position has not prevented federal health agencies, over the years, from approving synthetic versions of the herb’s psychoactive component to be used by Big Pharma in the treatment of serious conditions.

In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), one of the primary barriers in the grand scheme of nationwide legalization, recently approved a liquid variety of synthetic tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC) that will be sold to people suffering from AIDS and cancer.
