Cannabis Career Institute offering medical marijuana school

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, April, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A Senate panel unanimously approved a bill earlier this week that will pave the way for medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of Nevada.
 
And now, for the first time ever, a medical marijuana school is teaching the A-B-C's of starting your own budding business.
 
The Cannabis Career Institute announced Friday the first Nevada school to teach all things medical marijuana.
 
They say that dispensaries are a growth industry and feel confident this will be a big hit in Nevada.
 
The CCI began about five years ago and they operate in five states across the nation.
 
According to them, 1,500 students have learned how to be "budding" entrepreneurs and enrollment for the Nevada school will begin Saturday.
 
Attorney Michael Becker has defended several medical marijuana users and he sees this as a win-win.

House bill would bar Feds from acting against legalized marijuana in states

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, April, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
WASHINGTON — Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., on Friday introduced “Respect State Marijuana Laws Act of 2013,” which would prevent the federal government from prosecuting residents who are acting in accordance with their state’s marijuana laws.
 
The bill, H.R. 1523, would legalize marijuana at the federal level to the extent it is legal at the state level.
 
“This bipartisan bill represents a common-sense approach that establishes federal government respect for all states’ marijuana laws,” Rohrabacher said in a statement.  “It does so by keeping the federal government out of the business of criminalizing marijuana activities in states that don’t want it to be criminal.”
 
So far, 18 states, as well as the District of Columbia, have legalized the use of marijuana to some extent, mostly for medical reasons, and Washington and Colorado have legalized its recreational use.
 
Those co-sponsoring the bill are Reps. Justin Amash, R-Mich., Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., Jared Polis, D-Colo., and Don Young, R-Alaska

Feds force Oregon to surrender medical marijuana patient records

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, April, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
Federal agents have forced the Oregon Public Health Division to turn over an untold number of patients’ medical marijuana records, according to court records recently uncovered by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
 
Department of Justice Special Agent Michael Gutensohn applied for a warrant to seize the records that was executed in November as part of an investigation into medical marijuana growers who were suspected of selling goods illegally.
 
“I have probable cause to believe that records from the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program will contain evidence and instrumentalities of marijuana manufacturing and trafficking and conspiracy to commit marijuana manufacturing and trafficking offenses,” he wrote.

Nevada Senate committee passes medical marijuana bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, April, 11th 2013 by THCFinder
A Senate panel has unanimously approved a bill paving the way for for-profit medical marijuana dispensaries in Nevada.
 
The vote Thursday in the Senate Judiciary Committee means the bill now heads to the full Senate for a vote.
 
The bill sets the framework for the establishment and regulation of dispensaries in the Silver State. The facilities would be allowed to package marijuana into edible items, such as brownies.
 
Only registered medical marijuana patients or their caregivers would be able to purchase the drug. The bill says forging a medical marijuana registration card is punishable by up to four years in prison.
 
Republicans on the committee say that while they disagreed with the decision to make medical marijuana legal in 2000, they have to enforce a law established by the people.

Using marijuana to break a narcotic dependency

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, April, 10th 2013 by THCFinder
Bill had six back surgeries by the time he was 31 years old. The first was during the ninth grade after he injured his back getting tackled on the football field, rupturing a disc in his lower back. The surgery followed a few months later, resulting in his missing most of that academic year
 
“I tried the basic narcotics, Neurotonin, Alyrica, the list is a mile long,” he says. “I was taking OxyContin, stuff like that, time release Codeine. That started out in relatively small doses. Over the next 10 years I fell into a downward spiral. Pain medication allowed me some semi-functionality but I became a dependent. Your tolerance level goes up over time [and] was all supervised by my pain management doctor. There was no recreational use.”
 
Bill and his wife had a daughter right before his back went out at 29. He was divorced about two years later and all those surgeries kept him out of work. As his life swirled down the toilet, he moved in his parents’ basement. His weight soared up near 400 pounds; he was diagnosed with Type-2 Diabetes. Blood flow in his legs became so constricted he was developing ulcers in his lower legs.
 
“I was getting to the point where something had to happen,” says Bill.
 
What happened was that, in 2008, voters approved Michigan’s Medical Marihuana law. A friend of Bill’s dad suggested trying marijuana instead of painkillers. While Bill had smoked pot when he was younger, he had stopped in the early 1990s. He didn’t know where to get it. His pain doctor didn’t know anything about it and wouldn’t sign his state recommendation to get certified for medical use. Then he met a medical marijuana activist and found a doctor who would sign his recommendation.
 
“I started eating and smoking copious amounts of marijuana,” says Bill. “At the same time. I was tapering off my narcotic use and, after eight months, I was off narcotics 100 percent. That was the beginning of the change in my life. I lost 175 lbs., everything changed. It alleviates some of the nerve pain, but doesn’t take it away. Still I was able to use that to get off narcotics completely.”
