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.

Pot for pets? Vet offers unorthodox marijuana treatment for pups in pain

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, May, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
With medical marijuana legalized in California and several other states, one veterinarian is asking why a puff can't help ailing pooches.
 
Dr. Doug Kramer, who runs the Vet Guru animal center in Chatsworth, outside Los Angeles, believes that the active ingredient in pot, THC, could be the key to helping Fido feel better.
 
He said that was the case in treating his own dog, Nikita, saying the marijuana regimen increased her "quality of life."
 
Speaking with Vice magazine last month, Kramer said that a friend had first introduced the idea to him, saying that she used marijuana on her dog when other traditional medications were not working.
 
When his own Husky, Nikita, was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Dr. Kramer knew he had nothing to lose in the battle to help his pet deal with the pain. "When it became clear that she was nearing the end, that's when she had nothing to lose, as long as it didn't hurt her," he told the magazine.
 
According to Dogster.com, Kramer is the first vet in the country to offer pot as a treatment for canine pain.
 
Maryland has become the latest state to legalize the drug for medicinal use, the 19th state to have some law on the matter.

Councilman Credits Marijuana For Helping Put His Cancer In Remission

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, May, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com)  — Los Angeles Councilman Bill Rosendahl announced Thursday his cancer is in remission.
 
The 67-year-old Rosendahl gave major credit to medical marijuana for his recovery.
 
Rosendahl told reporters last July he was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer of the ureter, located between his kidney and bladder.
 
“Frankly I was given a death sentence,” he said. Doctors told him he would not live to see last November’s election and prompted his decision not to seek a third term.
 
“I went though five months of hell,” Rosendahl said.
 
Marijuana allowed him to get a full and painless night’s sleep and he said he started feeling stronger about two months ago.
 
“I hope to live another 30 years,” Rosehdahl said, “I’m very optimistic.”
