California Woman Denied Essential Heart Transplant Because She Uses MMJ

Category: News | Posted on Sun, February, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

This is a sad story that will infuriate you.

Summer Waltman, 23, was born with fetal alcohol syndrome and has suffered heart complications for most of her life.

She is in severe need of a heart transplant and is generally a good candidate. However, she has been denied.

She is also a good candidate for a medical pump that could extend her life from days to years. But she was also denied this option.

Why? Because Summer Waltman uses medical marijuana for pain management and comfort.

“It seems to me like they’re just sending her just to die,” Waltman’s cousin Andrew Babcock told a local CBS station in Sacramento, California.

Arizona to Give Marijuana Legalization Another Try

Category: News | Posted on Sun, February, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

Marijuana legalization came within 70,000 votes in Arizona of having a perfect record on Election Day. Of the five states with adult-use cannabis legalization measures on the ballot, Arizona’s Prop. 205 was the only one to fail in November, thanks largely to the best-funded opposition effort in the country—and at 51.32 percent opposed to 48.68 percent in favor, the lone setback was a narrow loss.

Barring unprecedented intervention from Donald Trump’s Justice Department, marijuana legalization’s record great success seems to all but guarantee that Arizona voters will consider the question again in 2018.

One citizen-led effort is already afoot—and if Safer Arizona has its way, the state will have some of the most permissive marijuana laws in the country.

Colorado Warms to Pot Clubs, Despite Federal Uncertainty

Category: News | Posted on Sat, February, 18th 2017 by THCFinder

ENVER (AP) — At risk of raising the ire of the White House, Colorado is on the brink of becoming the first state with licensed pot clubs. But the details of how these clubs will operate are as hazy as the underground clubs operating already.

Denver officials are working on regulations to open a one-year pilot of bring-your-own marijuana clubs, while state lawmakers are expected to consider measures to allow either marijuana “tasting rooms” run by marijuana dispensaries, or smoke-friendly clubs akin to cigar bars.

Alaska regulators, spooked by how the Trump administration might view marijuana, recently decided not to move forward with rules for use of marijuana at authorized stores, though the issue there isn’t dead.

New Study Shows Pot Can Help Kick Tobacco and Other Habits

Category: News | Posted on Fri, February, 17th 2017 by THCFinder

Canada recently concluded a study on the benefits of medical marijuana and found that it was not only effective in pain management but that it also helped overcome addiction to more harmful vices.

The study, published in the International Journal of Drug Policy, found that marijuana use can diminish a user’s dependency on tobacco, alcohol and, in some cases, painkillers.

The researchers said this study was the first comprehensive survey of patients enrolled in Canada’s MMJ program.

The study, which involved 271 participants, is also viewed as one of the first major studies to make the connection between cannabis and substance addiction.

New Coalition Wants to Protect Workers From Being Fired Over Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 16th 2017 by THCFinder

Over half the nation has now legalized the leaf for medicinal and/or recreational purposes, putting millions of working class citizens in a position to consume the herb without any legal repercussions. However, many of these people are still at risk of catching some unwanted heat from inside the walls of the great American workforce because some companies still consider a positive test for marijuana to be grounds for termination.

It is for that reason there is now a push in legal marijuana states to pass protections for employees that feel threatened by no-tolerance drug policies. The national marijuana legalization advocacy group NORML is said to be spearheading these efforts in a number of jurisdictions, which it hopes will pave the way to new laws that prevent workers from being sent to the unemployment line for simply using a substance that has been deemed legal in the eyes of the state.
