Recent Study Shows That Cannabis Fights Osteoarthritis Related Cartilage Breakdown

Category: News | Posted on Mon, April, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

osteoarthritis cartilidge breakdownOne of my favorite things to do in life is play basketball. I’m not the best at it, and definitely don’t possess the genetics and talent that I wish I had in order to have pursued my dreams as a basketball player growing up, but it’s something that I’ve always enjoyed. It was the only form of exercise that I could do that came naturally. Running around a track gets boring. Trying to make it rain at noon ball open gym was always much funner.

I have played in a lot of city basketball leagues, and play in a basketball tournament every summer, and have for over a decade. It’s something that I look forward to every summer, and I’ve actually over achieved at the tournament quite a bit. But after this last summer, I noticed that there was something wrong with my foot. I went to the doctor, and it turned out that I have osteoarthritis in my foot, including cartilage breakdown. I went from knowing nothing about a metatarsophalangeal joint to knowing quite a bit more in just a handful of months. It’s something that will never fully go away for the rest of my life, which is something that I’m still learning to deal with.

There are various ways to treat it, almost all of which involve pain meds that I don’t want to take. One treatment is to get steroid shots into the joint. Um, no thanks. Instead, I use various forms of cannabis, especially topical rubs. A good topical rub will do wonders to make my foot feel better. Ingesting cannabis helps the pain too, which is particularly hardcore some days. A recent study found that the use of synthetic cannabinoids reduced cartilage breakdown related to osteoarthritis. Per the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health:

D.C. Council Votes To Permanently Ban Private Marijuana-Smoking Clubs

In November 2014, Washington D.C. voters approved a marijuana legalization initiative by an overwhelming margin (71%). Following the vote, the question came up whether or not private marijuana clubs were allowed. Marijuana sales are still illegal in DC. The D.C. Council put in place a temporary ban on such entities. Today, the Council voted to make that ban permanent. Per The Washington Times:

The D.C. Council voted Tuesday to impose a permanent ban on private marijuana-smoking clubs, ending months of political hand-wringing over where to allow residents to consume pot.

In a 7-to-6 vote, the council made permanent a 90-day ban on pot clubs in the nation’s capital, where marijuana possession is legal though still a federal offense.

61% of DC residents that participated in a poll earlier this year supported private marijuana clubs. That, combined with the overwhelming victory on Election Day, has led many to question why the DC Council would make such a move. Especially since there is a public meeting tonight, and a task force is still looking into the issue. According to a tweet from the DC campaign that went out today, it sounds like activists are already planning on a referendum effort:

Fewer Coloradans seek treatment for pot use, but heavier use seen

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

Colorado's treatment centers have seen a trend toward heavier marijuana use among patients in the years after the state legalized the drug, according to a new report from the state Department of Public Safety.

The 143-page report released Monday is the state's first comprehensive attempt at measuring and tracking the consequences of legalization.

In 2014, more than a third of patients in treatment reported near-daily use of marijuana, according to the report. In 2007, less than a quarter of patients reported such frequency of use.

United States Supreme Court Rejects Case Involving Life Sentence For Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

Supreme Court marijuanaNo one should ever be locked in a cage because of marijuana. Not one day, and sure as hell not a life sentence. Yet, sadly, that is what is happening to people at this very moment. Marijuana opponents are always quick to say, ‘Yes, there are people in prison for marijuana, but they are a very small percentage of people that get caught with marijuana.’ As if that’s an OK stance to have. They might as well say, ‘Nevermind those poor souls seeing their lives wasted in prison, there aren’t that many of them, so they don’t count.’

I am an avid cannabis consumer, and I couldn’t fathom getting sentenced to life in prison for a plant that has been proven to be 114 times safer than alcohol. Lee Carroll Brooker is serving a life sentence in prison. He appealed his case all the way up to the Alabama Supreme Court, which upheld his conviction. Mr. Brooker then appealed his case to the United States Supreme Court. Sadly, the Court decided to pass on his case today. Per ABC:

The Supreme Court on Monday turned away an appeal from a 76-year-old Alabama man who was sentenced to life in prison without parole for possessing less than three pounds of marijuana that he said he grew for personal use.

Students To Rally Outside United Nations Meeting On Global Drug War

Category: News | Posted on Mon, April, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

students for sensible drug policyAbout 200 students and youth allies will demonstrate outside of a high-level United Nations meeting on the global war on drugs in New York this Monday. They are distressed that youth and other anti-prohibition voices have been ignored by world leaders, many of whom seem set on continuing the same criminalization-based approaches that have failed for decades.

The activists will stage performance art pieces, including slam poetry readings. Visual art depicting the harms of drug prohibition, from as far away as Afghanistan and Eastern Europe, will be displayed, and students will give short soapbox speeches to make their voices heard.

The United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on drugs is the highest-level gathering on the topic in nearly two decades. There, heads of state and diplomats will have the opportunity to discuss revising international drug control treaties that threaten to stand in the way of humane, evidence-based drug law reforms like marijuana legalization and access to harm reduction services as a growing number of U.S. states and other countries move toward ending prohibition.
