Alabama Bill to Legalize and Regulate Marijuana Dies in Committee

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, May, 10th 2013 by THCFinder
MONTGOMERY, AL — A bill that sought to legalize and regulate the adult use of marijuana in Alabama has been killed by a committee in the House.
 
House Bill 550  was tabled by the House Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security and will not be voted on, or even receive a hearing, this year.
 
House Bill 550, the Alabama Cannabis and Hemp Reform Act of 2013,  was introduced in April by Birmingham Democrat Rep. Patricia Todd, who has unsuccessfully lobbied her colleagues at the Alabama state house to legalize medical marijuana, including two medical marijuana bills introduced this year.
 
The bill would have also authorized the medical use of marijuana in Alabama and the cultivation of industrial hemp.
 
Rep. Todd is expected to re-introduce the legislation next year.

California Medical Marijuana Crackdown Ramps Up

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, May, 9th 2013 by THCFinder
SAN FRANCISCO -- Several dozen protesters gathered in downtown Berkeley Wednesday afternoon to fight federal action against one of California's oldest medical marijuana dispensaries, targeted for closure by the Justice Department.
 
"The Obama administration's ongoing war against patients is despicable and has to stop," Steph Sherer, executive director of Americans for Safe Access, told the crowd. "This is a mean, vindictive move aimed at shutting down one of the oldest and well-respected dispensaries in the country."
 
U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag on Friday served pot shop Berkeley Patients Group with a lawsuit that attempts to seize the property and ultimately shut the business. Berkeley officials say the dispensary provides significant benefits to the community.
 
"BPG has served as a national model of the not-for-profit, services-based medical cannabis dispensary," Berkeley City Council member Darryl Moore said in a resolution opposing the lawsuit. "They have improved the lives and assisted the end-of-life transitions of thousands of patients; been significant donors to dozens of other organizations in our city; [and] shaped local, state and national policies around medical cannabis."
 
Berkeley Patients Group received a letter from Haag last year, claiming its location within 1,000 feet of a school broke state law. The operation later relocated, and the lawsuit makes no mention of its proximity to schools or violation of specific laws.

Cannabis-based Medicine approved in Italy

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, May, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
Cambridge medical technology business, GW Pharmaceuticals, has earned a key European approval for its cannabis-based prescription medicine Sativex® in Italy – and a €250k windfall in the process.
 
Full marketing authorisation has been granted by the authorities in Italy for the treatment of moderate to severe spasticity in Multiple Sclerosis patients who have not responded adequately to other anti-spasticity medications.
 
Regulatory, pricing and reimbursement approvals are now in place for an expected commercial launch in September by GW’s partner, Almirall S.A. The breakthrough triggers a €250,000 milestone payment from Almirall to GW.
 
Justin Gover, CEO of GW, said: “The approval in Italy brings the total to 21 countries that have approved Sativex® for use in the treatment of MS spasticity.
 
“In granting reimbursement approval for Sativex®, we appreciate the foresight of the Italian authorities in recognising the value of a medicine that treats a particularly debilitating symptom of MS that is not adequately treated with currently available medications.
 
“We now look forward to working with our partners Almirall towards commercial launch in this important market in a few months’ time.”

Cannabis Oil Cures Terminal Illness

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, May, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
In the cold and sometimes inhospitable environment of Nova Scotia, those suffering from life-threatening terminal illnesses such as cancer were suddenly finding relief. They can thank Rick Simpson and his miracle marijuana oil.
 
Located in one of Canada’s smallest provinces, everybody knew Rick Simpson in the town of McCann. Some knew Rick because he has shared his secret to life with them, others because they believe him to be a crackpot; little more than a geriatric pot peddler.
 
Stating the most basic of facts, Rick points out ”you can’t deny your own eyes, now can you? Here’s someone that was dying of cancer… and they’re not dying anymore.”
 
As dozens of major scientific studies have recently demonstrated, Rick was right. In both the lab tests and tests performed on animals, the active cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant are nothing short of a miracle drug.

Marijuana Kills Brain Cancer Cells

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, May, 7th 2013 by THCFinder

Marijuana supporters have long known that marijuana has amazing medicinal properties. It seems like the rest of the world is just now catching up to reality. I saw a news segment on my local news describing how marijuana kills brain cancer cells, based off of a study that was conducted in Spain. The tip of the iceberg is just now being discovered by most of America, and as the truth about medical marijuana spreads, so will acceptance and reform spread with it. Below is the footage of the news segment.

Medical marijuana ruling due Monday

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, May, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
The California Supreme Court will rule Monday, May 6 on a Riverside case that will decide whether local governments can ban storefront medical marijuana dispensaries.
 
The ruling will decide whether cities and counties that have banned medical marijuana clinics through zoning ordinances are on solid legal ground, or whether they have overreached by blocking a way to purchase marijuana for use that is permitted by state law.
 
There are an estimated 200 local bans statewide on medical marijuana stores.
 
Inland governments that prohibit medical marijuana dispensaries include Riverside and San Bernardino counties and the cities of Riverside, San Bernardino, Hemet, Redlands, San Jacinto, Corona, Norco, Murrieta, Temecula and Moreno Valley.
 
The Supreme Court's review of the case followed conflicting opinions in lower courts.
