First misuse of medical marijuana heading to court

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

HARTFORD — In the first case of its kind since the state’s medical-marijuana program was approved by lawmakers five years ago, a North Branford man who owns the cannabis growing facility in Eastern Connecticut is facing charges of illegally diverting and distributing it in the company parking lot.

Andrew M. Bozzuto, 54, who is listed in state incorporation documents as the principal owner of Connecticut Pharmaceutical Solutions in Portland, has a court date Dec. 5 in Middlesex Superior Court on a variety of drug-related charges.

The judicial file is under seal, a routine procedure in cases of first-time offenders seeking pretrial diversion.

The case dates back to June 29, when the state Department of Consumer Protection, which runs and regulates the medical-cannabis program, received an anonymous tip that Bozzuto had taken marijuana from the facility — where thousands of plants are grown to maturity and harvested, dried and prepared for market — and given a quantity to another employee in the parking lot of the Portland operation, across the Connecticut River from Middletown.

Doctor Retracts Claim That Baby Died Of First Marijuana Overdose

Category: News | Posted on Thu, November, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

The words of two poison control doctors seem to have been taken out of context. As a result, people thought that a doctor had declared the first marijuana overdose of all time. In fact, media outlets began reporting on the first marijuana overdose as if it were true. After already sparking the controversy, the doctors are stepping up to clarify that they did not say a child overdosed on marijuana. Here’s what actually went down.

The Original Report

Thomas M. Nappe, DO and Christopher O. Hoyte, MD are the co-authors of the case report. Both doctors work at the Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center, based in Denver, Colorado.

The first two lines of the case report state “since marijuana legalization, pediatric exposures to cannabis have increased. To date, pediatric deaths from cannabis exposure have not been reported.”

A Look At Canada’s Marijuana Plans

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 22nd 2017 by THCFinder

When full adult-use cannabis legalization goes into effect on July 1, 2018, it won’t be the equitable, community-oriented legislation many legal weed advocates in Canada had hoped for. It won’t grant amnesty to any of the 22,000 people the country arrests for weed every year. The law won’t even legalize edibles. But what it will do is give a massive advantage to the major corporate entities already dominating Canada’s medical marijuana system. And the rest is up to the country’s individual provincial governments. Yet a quick survey of Canada’s marijuana plans suggests most provinces don’t have a solid plan at all.

Is The Law Throwing A Wrench In Canada’s Marijuana Plans?

From the looks of it, Canada has quite a lot of work to do if the country is to get things together by the time legalization goes into effect in July.
