Czech pharmacies begin selling medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, April, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
Medical marijuana legally went on sale Tuesday in pharmacies across the Czech Republic for patients suffering from cancer, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis or psoriasis.
 
The new law does not foresee health insurance coverage for marijuana, touted by some as a medical miracle drug.
 
The prescription-only drug formally became legal on Monday, but was virtually unavailable as most pharmacies across the ex-communist European Union state of 10.5 million were closed over to the Easter long weekend.
 
Prague will first import the drug for about a year, reportedly from Israel or the Netherlands, until the State Institute for Drug Control starts issuing licences to local growers for a maximum of five years.
 
The institute will also determine the crop area and organise tenders for marijuana purchases from farmers.

Hearing Tomorrow on Oregon Marijuana Legalization Bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, April, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
SALEM, OR — April showers could bring legal cannabis flowers to Oregon if bill that would legalize marijuana possession and create a state-regulated system of legal marijuana commerce passes the State Legislature.
 
House Bill 3371, also known as the Control, Regulation and Taxation of Cannabis Act, was introduced in March by the House Committee on Revenue and has been scheduled for a hearing April 2 at 1:00 pm by the House Judiciary Committee.
 
The bill would legalize the possession of up to six plants and 24 ounces of marijuana “on the premises” of non-commercial home grows, the same amounts allowed under the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act, for adults 21 or older. The bill does not otherwise set possession limits, but leaves them to the Oregon Health Authority to regulate.
 
House Bill 3371 would not prevent employers from prohibiting the manufacture, delivery, possession or use of marijuana in the workplace.
 
The bill would also legalize industrial hemp.

Changes to Michigan's medical-marijuana law kick in Monday

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, March, 31st 2013 by THCFinder
LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Some of the first significant changes to Michigan's medical-marijuana law kick in Monday, including extending the one-year registry cards to two years and setting rules for the doctor-patient relationship for medical-marijuana users.
 
Voters endorsed the use of medical marijuana in 2008 to alleviate side effects of certain illnesses, such as cancer or chronic pain. But lawmakers said the law left too much open to interpretation and pushed through bipartisan measures at the end of last session designed to clarify the act. One of the biggest changes defines the type of doctor-patient relationship needed before medical marijuana use can be certified.
 
Democratic Rep. Phil Cavanagh of Redford Township in Wayne County, who sponsored one of the bills, said lawmakers had concerns that the certificates were given out too liberally, like over the phone or Internet.
 
But starting Monday, doctors must complete face-to-face medical evaluations of patients, review their relevant medical records, and assess their medical condition and history. The amendments also require follow-up with patients after providing the certification to see whether the use of medical marijuana to treat the illness is working.

Man grew cannabis plantation to cure his mother's cancer

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, March, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
A MAN who believed radiation and chemotherapy treatment killed three loved ones started growing cannabis because it was a "major benefit" to the immune system and "cured" his mother of cancer.
 
Michael Bede Dooley, 59, was given a six-month fully suspended jail sentence in the NT Supreme Court for cultivating 81 cannabis plants, The Northern Territory News reports.
 
The service station owner of Batchelor, south of Darwin, had been growing the crops for up to seven months when police raided his property in May last year.
 
The court was told that Dooley was growing the plants because he believed cannabinoids were beneficial to the human immune system and could cure his sick mother.
 
Justice Peter Barr was told his belief stemmed from the loss of his wife, grandmother and friend who were all undergoing radiation or chemotherapy when they died.
 
Justice Barr said: "This case is a most unusual one."

Doctors and patients could decide who gets medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, March, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
Draft rules for medical use of marijuana in Massachusetts, issued Friday by the state Department of Public Health, largely leave it up to doctors to decide which patients will qualify for treatment with the drug.
 
Patients must have a debilitating condition -- defined as causing weakness, wasting syndrome, intractable pain or nausea, or impairing strength or ability and limiting major life activities -- and the regulations list qualifying conditions, including cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, and ALS. But the rules also would allow doctors and their patients to decide what other conditions would qualify patients for treatment.
 
The 45 pages of rules also would require applicants wishing to open a medical marijuana treatment center, known as a dispensary, to be a nonprofit and to operate their own cultivation and dispensing facilities. No wholesale distribution of marijuana products would be allowed, the department said in a news release.
 
“This allows for uniform seed-to-sale control and maximized security,” the release said.
 
Voters in November approved a ballot referendum that legalized marijuana for medical use, but the measure left it to the health department to issue regulations that would implement the law
