States high on high tech to track medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, July, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
mass-mj-trackingMedical marijuana is about to become a high-tech endeavor in Massachusetts, with the state exploring the acquisition of what is likely to be a multimillion-dollar IT program to monitor the so-called seed-to-sale production, transport and handling of what will continue to be a controlled substance.
 
The state is soliciting for consultants to advise regulators of the state’s new medical marijuana industry on how long it would take, and how much work would be required, to build a computer software system to handle “the Medical Marijuana Systems Project,” according to a state Executive Office of Health and Human Services request for information.
 
The state’s RFI lands nine months after Bay State voters agreed to let qualified sick people use marijuana.
 
Though marijuana is still banned under federal law, Massachusetts is among more than a dozen states that have legalized it for medicinal reasons.
 
One company that produced medical marijuana tracking software, MJ Freeway of Colorado, has already hired local lobbyists, the Herald reported last month, as part of a broader story on the big business behind medical marijuana.
 
The Department of Public Health’s medical marijuana rules call for the creation of “a single electronic system” that would “capture everything that happens to an individual marijuana plant, from seed and cultivation” to final sale, adding that the “system shall chronicle every step, ingredient, activity, transaction, and dispensary agent, registered qualifying patient, or personal caregiver who handles, obtains, or possesses the product. This system shall utilize a unique plant identification and unique batch identification.”

MARIJUANA GROW HOUSES: How many plants are too many?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
mj-grow-houseHopefully you will remember the story The Press-Enterprise wrote about the houses in Eastvale that had been converted into marijuana grow-houses.
 
We also wrote about the Special Enforcement Team deputies who uproot these operations.
 
Well, the other day we received an email from an anonymous person who mentioned these Eastvale farming operations and correctly pointed out that there is no limit to the number of plants you can grow for medicinal-marijuana use. Good enough.
 
I ran this person’s letter past a law-enforcement officer I know, and he pointed out something that the letter-writer left out: Why, if these people who are growing marijuana in Eastvale are doing so for legitimate medicinal purposes, did they illegally bypass the electrical system? And why did they damage the property they were renting by making wholesale changes to the house?
 
Anyway, here is the letter from the marijuana advocate, word for word. These are his opinions, not ours.
 
“City to pass anti-pot growing ordinance soon. The City needs to be very careful in doing it so they don’t trash the rights of qualified patients who grow their own lawful medicine. One size does not fit all. Not everyone who uses med marijuana is a pot head, a drug addict, or to ‘get high’.
 
“Take caution and Note that Prop 215 does not establish any limits on where or the amount of med marijuana qualified patients can cultivate for themselves; none whatsoever. The Legislature tried to limit how many plants can be grown by a qualified patient, and the state Supreme Court ruled that was an “unconstitutional amendment of Prop 215″ because the voters did not vote on any such numerical limits; People v. Kelley.

Medical marijuana dispensaries a signature away from legal in Ore.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
mmj-in-oregonSALEM, Ore. (AP) — Medical marijuana dispensaries are a signature away from being legal in Oregon.
 
The state House of Representatives approved a bill Saturday to establish a licensing system for medical marijuana outlets. The bill, which passed 32-27, now goes to Gov. John Kitzhaber to sign.
 
Current law requires medical marijuana cardholders to grow the weed themselves or find someone to grow it for them. The bill would enable cardholders to purchase the drug from state-licensed medicinal pot shops.
 
Supporters say legalizing dispensaries will make it easier for the state's nearly 55,000 medical pot users to get their medicine and harder for the black market to get its hands on Oregon weed.
 
Some opponents argue the bill doesn't have enough teeth to go after people who abuse the state's medical marijuana program.

What is THC CBD and CBN

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, July, 6th 2013 by THCFinder

What is THC CBD and CBN

thc-cbd-cbn

To be one with Cannabis Sativa means that you know her inside and out, you know how she makes you feel and just how she goes about doing it.

MJ is filled with wonderful little things inside of it that make it the wonderful super plant that it is. Without these special ingredients people from all over the world may not even know her name. THC, CBD, AND CBN are just three of these ingredients that  work together as brothers in this marijuana thing. They use teamwork to strategically get smokers and high and happy through a series of checks and balances. Depending on the percentages of these three things, determines how your high will be felt, how long, and how strong it will feel.

THC

thc-1

THC is the main psychoactive active ingredient in Cannabis Sativa. THC or tetrahydrocannibinol is what gets you high, the higher amount of THC your bud has, the higher you'll be.  This snazzy little ingredient is all of our best friend, and without her there would be no rocketships to the moon.

CBD

cbd-1

Cannabidiol or CBD acts like a booster for the THC, it can increase it's effects but can also work to decrease them as well, all depending on the percentages in the ganja. A high THC content mixed with low CBD levels is a winning combination for a strong and potent high that'll have you loving your trip to the sky. CBD is a psychoactive ingredient meaning that it has a wide range of medicinal issues that it works great for, including schizophrenia, other persoanality disorders, and epilepsy. CBD is also said to increase your reaction time and alertness, without this little guy things in Mary's life would be a lot more boring.

CBN

cbn-1

Cannabinol aka CBN is what is produced when the THC begins to break down and become older. This is all part of the oxidation process, when this is happening the user often feels "sluggish" or stuck as the high is coming down. Couch lock isn't just another reason to be lazy, but actually  the active ingredients inside MJ doing their thing and pretty much making you glue your buns to the seat and eat all those donuts....it's science!

Difference Between Indica Sativa Hybrid

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 5th 2013 by THCFinder

Difference Between Indica Sativa Hybrid

class-1

Mary Jane is a beautiful and indepth lady that comes in three main clasifications, Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid.

Depending on which one of these you have the pleasure of feasting on determines what kind of high ride you'll experience. Some strains make you feel more upbeat while others slow you down a bit, this all has to do with it's indica, sativa, or hybrid classification.

Indica

class-2

Indica strains have a very mellow feel to them. They have the potential to chill out the vibe of the entire room, most often felt in the form of a nice body buzz. Muscles begin to relax and stress completely leaves the equation as an option. Medical marijuana patients that have issues with insomnia will often be prescribed heavy indica strains to help them get to sleep and stay sleep, it's really no match for the chill vibes that this bud brings to the table. Arthritis patients and people suffering from other muscle ailments benefit from indicas as well, that body buzz isn't just making you feel insanely good for no reason, but it's also pain relieving as well. When you're in the mood to do nothing but let the smooth THC tides wash over you, inhale deep because that's what's to follow.

Sativa

class-3

Sativa is the kind of tree you want if you're looking for a jump start kind of high, these strains are good for any kinds of outdoor activites, or any instance where you'd want to be more active or alert. Saitva's are known for taking your toasty-ness straight to the brain and giving you a very intense head high. These rides are often paried with a face numbing "mask" like feeling that likes to start at your eyes and work its way through all the canals of your brain....and gut busting giggles. The climax of a sativa high will have you more on the hyped up side, wanting to do nothing more than love the world and be free.

Hybrid

class-4

The best of both worlds is what you'll get with a hybrid. These are strains that are both Indica and Sativa. Hybrids can either be indica or sativa domianat, meaning that one percentage is higher than the other. Some hybrids are so well bred together that the percentages can be pretty close to equal. The advantage to this is that you get to feel both kinds of exciting highs with just one bowl. What you usually end up with is a unique high special to both parents where you'll experience a head high accompalnied by a smooth body vibe as well. With tons upon tons of Mary Jane to smoke the hybridds list is pretty long, and just waiting for you to explore her.

Now that you've got the 411 on what you've been smoking, it's time to get to the 420 and feel what all the talk is about.

Decision Looming On Marijuana Legalization In Illinois

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
illinois-mmj-programCHICAGO (CBS) — Chronically-ill patients may be able to legally light up in less than two weeks. That’s when supporters of the medical marijuana bill are hoping the Governor will sign a bill legalizing the drug for medical use.
 
But as CBS 2′s Dorothy Tucker reports, opponents continue to point to problems in other states and worry Illinois might face similar issues.
 
Julie Falco says that she was, “ready to commit suicide,” to escape the debilitating effects of MS. What did she find? Cookies made with marijuana.
 
“Not only did it help with my muscle spasticity, leg spasticity, my numbness and tingling, the pain… it saved my life,” said Falco.
 
Improving the lives of the chronically ill is how supporters convinced lawmakers to pass medical marijuana in Illinois. Opponents, like Riverside Police Chief Tom Weitzel has a list of objections. The biggest, is marijuana patients who drive.
 
“Their reactions are slow. It could either just cause erratic driving or in some cases they may be involved in auto accidents,” said Wietzel.
 
There are no studies to confirm Weitzel’s fears about patients who may drive under the influence. In fact, a study looking at 16 states where medical marijuana is legal found traffic deaths dropped nine percent. Those same researchers also looked at the impact on teenagers and saw that eleven states saw fewer teens smoking pot.
 
Patients in Illinois will need an ID to buy pot. 2.5 ounces will be the limit, which is enough to stuff two small sandwich bags. Up to 60 shops could get permission to sell it.
 
“I don’t think it would attract the right types of crowds that most communities would want,” said Weitzel.
