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.”

Marijuana may bring jobs to Arizona

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, April, 9th 2013 by THCFinder
As strange as it sounds, marijuana could actually make a huge impact on Arizona's economy.
 
Based on an economic analysis, The Phoenix Business Journal reported that an increase in marijuana dispensaries could lead to an additional $34 million in spending and $2 million in revenue for state and local governments in Arizona.
 
Along with the additional revenue, more activity in the industry could create 460 new jobs and make a new, innovative impact on Arizona's economy.
 
Currently there are 11 approved dispensary locations, one of the newest being Jamestown Center, which opened March 28 in Eloy.

Researchers hope to test cancer fighting pot compound

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, April, 9th 2013 by THCFinder
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Medical marijuana and its psychoactive ingredient THC already provide relief, and often an accompanying buzz, for thousands of patients fighting cancer.
 
But more than five years ago, researchers at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco began focusing their attention on a far tamer compound in the marijuana plant, an ingredient called cannabidiol.
 
"Cannabidiol is a non-toxic agent from cannabis that is not psychoactive," says Sean McAllister, Ph.D., a lead researcher in the group's recent study.
 
McAllister and colleague Pierre Desprez, Ph.D., now believe they are ready for human trials, using the compound to treat metastatic cancer. The pair has produced a synthetic version of cannabidiol, also known as CBD, which they say targets a specific gene in the body related to the spread of cancer.
 
"We found this one compound, CBD, had a specific effect on metastatic cancer cells, very aggressive tumor cells. The bad cancer cells, the ones that spread throughout the body," said Desprez.
 
In their recently published study the team documented that effect on brain cancer in a large scale animal trial. They say brain scans revealed the disruption of the tumor cells after the cannabidiol was used to switch off a specific gene regulator.
