Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, August, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

The U.S. Department of Justice cannot spend money to prosecute federal marijuana cases if the defendants comply with state guidelines that permit the drug's sale for medical purposes, a federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday.

The ruling, from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, comes as voters in nine more states will consider allowing the recreational or medical use of marijuana this November.

How To Get Your Medical Marijuana Card in New Jersey

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, August, 17th 2016 by THCFinder

STEP 1:  IF YOU QUALIFY, GATHER YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS PROVING THAT YOU HAVE A QUALIFYING CONDITION.

Read this article to find out who qualifies for medical marijuana in NJ.

STEP 2:  FIND A NEW JERSEY MARIJUANA DOCTOR.

In NJ, only specially registered physicians are able to write prescriptions for marijuana.  Go to the NJ MMP website and schedule an appointment with a doctor on the list.

New Medical Marijuana Policy Is a Catch-22, Researchers Say

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, August, 16th 2016 by THCFinder

Medical research on marijuanaprobably won't get any easier, experts say, despite a new government policy aimed at boosting the supply of the drug for medical studies.

That means the types of studies that are needed to address the safety and effectiveness of the drug as a medicine could still be a long way off.

Marijuana's legal status as a "Schedule I" drug, which makes it an illegal drug on the federal level, "severely constrains the access and the number and type of people who can do research with cannabis," said Ryan Vandrey, an associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine who studies marijuana. "The unfortunate result of that is that we're now in a situation where you have literally millions of people using a drug for which we don't have established safety or efficacy data," Vandrey said.
