We are Job Creators Cannabis Entrepreneurs Tell Incoming Trump Administration


icon  06 Dec, 2016  /  icon  1        Author: Jack

The conflict on cannabis between states and the federal government will continue for some time, especially now because the stand taken by the Trump administration is uncertain. There have been mixed signals coming from the President-elect himself. During his campaigns, he expressed support for the cannabis reforms going on at the state level. However, his actions continue to worry cannabis entrepreneurs from different cannabis-friendly states. Trump’s choice of Senator Jefferson Sessions for the post of attorney general has send shockwaves to the cannabis industry. Trumps pledge to support states is a complete contrast to the position held by Sessions concerning cannabis. Senator Sessions has always been against cannabis and entrepreneurs fear that he may ask the Department of Justice to arrest those in the cannabis industry. In an effort to counteract any probable action of this nature, cannabis entrepreneurs are asking officials in Trump’s administration to leave them alone because they are creating jobs for the masses.

Cannabis businesses have continued to evolve over the years and weed users can now buy cannabis  for both medical and recreational purposes in different states across America. However, the future of cannabis will be fully known when president-elect, Trump assumes office. The disparity in opinion between the incumbent and incoming administration is bleak. On his part, President Obama is convinced that cannabis should be treated the same way as alcohol in terms of how it is regulated. According to Sessions, Obama’s stand on cannabis use is a great failure.  Trump on the other hand wants to create jobs and this looks like a strong point for cannabis entrepreneurs. The cannabis business is huge and hundreds of thousands in each weed-friendly state are benefiting from opportunities coming up in the industry. Marc Ross, a lecturer professor at the Hofstra School of Law believes that the cannabis industry is a growing multi-billion dollar industry in America. Ross, a “Business and Law of Cannabis ” lecturer leads the cannabis business practice at his own corporate law firm. With this in mind, entrepreneurs hope that the creation of jobs and collection of tax revenue will be factors that a president focused on building the economy would support. If not, then it would be best for a president of Trump’s caliber to just leave the cannabis business alone.

The economic significance of cannabis  businesses

GreenWave Advisors, LLC led by their managing partner, Matt Karnes estimates that there will be tax revenues of about $777 million accruing from cannabis sales proceeds in California in 2018. This is believed to boost the economy with the state realizing the first gains on the sale of recreational cannabis.  The only fear that may prevent this is Senator Sessions’ position should he try to prevent California from executing the legal recreational use of cannabis that was approved by voters. cannabis delivery services could thus be affected and hamper the much anticipated gains.  Losing tax revenue is merely one of the probable negative impacts that reversing these laws could have as put forward by entrepreneurs in the weed industry.

The marketing and communications vice president of Db3 Corporation in Seattle, Mr. Patrick Devlin believes that any move to repeal the growing legal weed industry will give strength to the black market. Most importantly, the crime that will result from such a retrogressive effort will run out of control, according to Devlin from this organization trading cannabis-infused edibles such as tinctures, lozenges and so on. Apparently, the different states have shown that they can regulate the marijuana industry effectively. Therefore, the federal government should not have a problem with that. The COO at Medicine Man Technologies dealing with cannabis business consultancy in Denver, Mr. Brett Roper believes that the biggest risk to marijuana is the increasing uncertainty at the federal level especially from a perspective of policy. Some of the immediate challenges include the inability to address the banking issue, matters of safety that have emerged from an industry operated purely on cash terms and the inability to subtract business overheads from the federal taxes. These have been a major impediment to further development of weed businesses.

As it stands, the legal cannabis industry is already composed of small businesses that don’t have money or political power to voice out their concerns.  There is also another worry from well-established pharmaceutical organizations that can influence DEA and FDA actions towards the weed industry only to bring confusion to the legal marijuana market. Those who are already trading medical cannabis anticipate that policy decisions will be founded on science instead of emotional prejudices. Ideally, procedures and guidelines in the future should be based on long-term scientific research that is assessed independently despite the administration in office. Marijuana reforms have come a long way and 2016 was really a defining moment for the herb. Will President-elect Trump overlook the many job opportunities coming up in the marijuana industry when he assumes office?

Cannabis and Wine Dealers Scramble for Supremacy in the California Economy


icon  04 Dec, 2016  /  icon  2        Author: Anne Fred

The wine industry in California now competes with the marijuana business on grounds of financial gains coming to the state’s economy.  The wine industry has reportedly provided 325,000 jobs in California. On another end, Bill Swindell of Press Democrat says that the marijuana business in California is estimated to offer 300,000 jobs. According to Swindell, the weed industry offers one of the biggest business opportunities for labor unions.  The United Food and Commercial Works (UFCW) organization has started to organize farm workers in states that have legalized cannabis and in Washington D.C. too.  Even though medical marijuana sales tax in California is reduced at least for now in what appears to be an oversight made during the passing of Proposition 64, the impact of the marijuana business is felt across the state. All the same, sales growth of the medical marijuana industry will be greatly impacted. The marijuana industry might also profit with as much as 350,000 field employees joining it. This is worrisome for the wine industry in California, particularly in the Emerald Triangle region that covers Trinity, Mendocino and Humboldt counties where grapes and marijuana seem to fight for the same resources.

The competition experienced in Northern California is the scramble for harvest labor. When the harvest for grape in Mendocino County started in August 2016, one of the companies in the region, Vineyard Logistics had 22 pickers. In a matter of six weeks, the number reduced to eight.  Harvesting weed is a lot easier compared to harvesting grapes. Most importantly, harvesting marijuana pays better compared to grapes. Also, workers are making preference to marijuana because it mostly pays in cash due to legal restrictions on marijuana businesses to participate in the national financial banking system. The success on marijuana is realized amidst state-federal conflicts. Even after decriminalization in various states and in Washington, DC, marijuana cultivation and distribution has federally been illegalized. As it stands now, weed is classified as a Schedule 1 drug defined through the Controlled Substances Act. Due to this, it is not easy for weed farmers to establish the means of handling their business operations on financial grounds. They must pay taxes but cannot deduct expenses. They should also pay out wages but still have issues with making proper payroll tax records among other issues. Additionally, despite getting organized through the UFCW, weed farm workers cannot have collective bargaining rights since the Federal Labor Relations Act does not cover them. The only hope for cannabis farm workers is the California Agricultural Labor Relations Act. With an expected increase in the number of cannabis growers, harvest labor for vineyards continues to be a big issue in California.

Grape growers have no alternatives to labor shortages other than going for a mechanized harvesting. This is especially in situations where pickers vanish to cannabis farms only to show up later on when it is too late. This puts the wine industry in danger as the quality of the grapes can be compromised. Definitely cannabis is a big threat to California’s wine industries. Forecasts on the building threat started way before California legalized the recreational use of marijuana. In 2010, California’s marijuana was valued at 7 times the quantity of grapes grown as at that time. Now, the reality has hit following the passing of Proposition 64 where an increased number of persons who can buy marijuana is certain.  Currently, the threat for wine industries is even bigger.

Cannabis industry in California is rapidly growing and is gaining support from other auxiliary services in IT, construction and marketing. Looking at the increasing demand for weed each day, many dealers have continued to provide cannabis for sale online. This way, many more jobs are coming up through tech innovations to make weed easily accessible to those who are legalized to use it.  The emerging cannabis trade is continuously having a positive impact on the economy and the state government is turning its attention to the billions of dollars circulating in the business. It is no doubt that many parts in California continue to depend on cannabis cultivation to fill the gap left by other industries. In the process, others like the wine manufacturers are getting affected with the shift of resources towards the weed industry.  Mendocino County’s economy is a good example of what has been happening in California in the marijuana businesses. Both weed and wine are great products and important for California’s economy. However, the combination of these two might see one highly esteemed than the other, in this case, the marijuana industry. The grape farmers never saw this coming. In any case, these are two completely different industries in the market. However, the scramble for resources needed for their establishment creates some similarities between them. The only competition expected would have been for customers and not for workers. All the same, this is the state of affairs in the California economy and a very defining moment for the cannabis industry to take over!

Medical Marijuana Los Angeles


icon  17 May, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Demo Editor

Medical marijuana is very popular in Los Angeles with a lot of products and paraphernalia being sold. Due to the legalization of medical marijuana in California, it is very easy to purchase at your local dispensary or three other dispensaries down the street.

The state of California has become very reputable in terms of sales and quality of marijuana products and paraphernalia. People who require the products have easier access to it thanks to the decriminalization of marijuana and the establishments of dispensaries. But when people talk about marijuana and dispensaries, they are often referring to a broad range in the state of California. People within the local cities or even the major cities might not know where to go purchase or how to go about buying it.

Medical marijuana in Los Angeles is not as accessible as the other parts of California. Actually in 2015, there were laws put in place trying to prohibit the dispensaries in the city. In Los Angeles, it is set up in such a way where dispensaries located in the area would have to obtain a local license to operate, and would also need to renew said state license; which is contingent upon the continued compliance with the local ordinances. Furthermore, the people of Los Angeles are trying to implement a bill – Proposition D, which could bring about the closure of every marijuana dispensary in the Los Angeles area.

Due to this proposition, dispensaries in the Los Angeles area have noticeably reduced to about 135 stores in the past couple of years. So when it comes to buying medical marijuana, one’s options are very slim. There are still dispensaries such as the Grace Medical Marijuana Pharmacy on Pico Boulevard; or you could always find a doctor in the Los Angeles are who will refer you to a specialist in your area. There is also the option of having Pot Valet deliver your marijuana right to your doorsteps.

What Is A Cannabis Dispensary?


icon  14 May, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Demo Editor

Often times, people do not know what to expect when they hear the words ‘cannabis dispensary”, or when they have to deal with one. A cannabis dispensary is a legalized specially designated location where medical marijuana is sold. If you do proper research it is very possible to find one in your area and understand how it works, as these dispensaries vary in operations based on locations. Some dispensaries only sell for medical uses, while others in the United States are licensed to sell for medical as well as recreational use, as a means of the government regulating the use and dispersion of marijuana.

Cannabis dispensaries operate just like any other business operates. Think about when you enter a liquor store to purchase alcohol, you get carded to show that you are of the legal age. Same thing in a cannabis dispensary, you need to present your ID to show that you are over 21, if you’re entering a recreational dispensary, or for those going to a medical dispensary, you need to show your medical marijuana health card – a form of personal identification from your doctor with the government’s approval to show that you are qualified to use marijuana for medicinal purposes. In the dispensaries, since products and practices vary by location, there are often people in there that assist with the products as well as verify the authenticity of your ID; that is if you are purchasing from a medical dispensary.

In the United States, cannabis dispensaries are becoming more of regularity for recreational purposes, with Washington and Seattle passing voter initiatives fully legalizing marijuana for recreational purposes. You can expect the rest of the states to follow suit soon, and the result will lead to more cannabis dispensaries for recreational uses popping up, not just selling marijuana, but marijuana infused products as well.

Medical Marijuana for Treating Bipolar Disorder

Medical Marijuana for Treating Bipolar Disorder
Marijuana for Treating Bipolar Disorder

 

Medical Marijuana for Treating Bipolar Disorder

Medical marijuana is often used to address high levels of pain in different kinds of illnesses and for patients with serious problems like cancer and other such problems. However, recent evidence suggests that medical marijuana can be used to treat neurological disorders as well. Research conducted by several institutions has shown that medical marijuana has a positive effect on patients suffering from depression, anxiety disorders and other problems. It can also be used to treat bipolar disorders.

What is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder is when you alternate between extreme depressive phases and elation without warning. It affects your energy levels, mood, and your activity levels to an extent that day-to-day tasks can become very difficult. This disorder shouldn’t be taken lightly. In many cases, people just dismiss it as being moody and don’t take steps to treat it. That can harm your health and well-being, personal life, and your professional life as well.

What is Bipolar Disorder

Does Medical Marijuana Help?

 

There’s considerable debate about this, but there has been enough positive response from research participants to consider medical marijuana a valid option for treatment. This plant influences the body’s endocannabinoid system. This particular system is present in all mammals and is involved in processes like pain sensation, mood, appetite, and memory. It also mediates the effect of cannabis like marijuana.

Does Medical Marijuana help

According to researchers, the THC and CBD cannabinoids found in medical marijuana can stabilize your mood and address the symptoms of bipolar disorder. THC can, under the right dosage and circumstances, have an antidepressant and anti-anxiety effect on patients. CBD has similar effects as well. There is potential here and researchers are busy trying to understand how to utilize it safely.

RSO and CO2 Extractions For Dabbing


icon  27 Jan, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: Support Pot Valet

 

RSO and CO2 Extractions For Dabbing

Dabbing is a method through which people medicate themselves with cannabis concentrates. PotValet is committed to offer only the safest and cleanest concentrates. The oils for dabbing are obtained through numerous extraction methods, giving the dabs different names such as BHO (butane hash oil), rosin, CO2 oil, budder and wax. All of these products are powerful medicines for those dealing with chronic pain and nausea.

RSO and CO2 Extractions For Dabbing

You have probably heard some concerns regarding dabbing. While the process itself is not at all dangerous, some extraction methods may carry the potential to harm the consumer. For example, chemical contaminants like butane may have some hazardous consequences. PotValet offers the best concentrates, which are only RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) and CO2 based. Let’s see what each of these extraction methods has to offer.

The RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) Extraction

The RSO extraction method is preferred to the one of water or alcohol. It involves the use of naphthalene and it is prepared with the intent of delivering high amounts of 100% bioavailable THC that will fight cancers and other severe illnesses. This is why the RSO extraction is preferred amongst those who suffer from serious diseases. It should be noted that traditional RSO is a high THC product.

The RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) Extraction

The CO2 Extraction Method

This method used carbon dioxide under extreme pressure. The result is the separation of cannabinoids from the plant. More than this, the CO2 extraction decarboxylates the cannabis completely, meaning that anything obtained is 100% bioavailable and can be consumed in any way – eaten, smoked or vaped. It doesn’t matter how you consume this concentrated, it will be super effective.
The RSO and CO2 extractions are preferred by PotValet because they offer better results than the water or alcohol extractions. As said earlier, the THC obtained after such extractions is more effective and more bioavailable than the one obtained through other methods.

How Does Dabbing Work?


icon  23 Jan, 2016  /  icon  1        Author: Support Pot Valet

How Does Dabbing Work?

In case you are somehow involved with cannabis, whether medically, recreationally or from a business point of view, then you have probably heard about “dabbing”. It’s been over a decade since this method of consumption has been around, but the onset of more progressive extraction methods has brought on more cannabis concentrates, making dabbing more popular than ever.

Medical Benefits of Dabbing

A dab is a dose of cannabis concentrate. The dabbing method involves heating the concentrate on a hot surface and then inhaling it through a dab ring. The dabs are obtained by extracting cannabinoids, including THC, with a solvent, which is usually butane or carbon dioxide. The final result is a sticky oil that is commonly known as shatter, wax, budder or BHO (butane hash oil). The good news for some is that there is the possibility of extracting only the THC, which is the really medicine in marijuana.

The Medical Benefits of Dabbing

Concentrates are so beneficial because they give the patient a powerful dose of the medicine. Those who suffer from chronic pain or nausea have reported that dabbing gave them immediate relief. The quantity of flowers to be smoked in order to get the same results would not be possible in patients who really need the medicine.

Medical Benefits of Dabbing

Are There Any Dangers?

The answer to this question is yes. Making extracts can be very dangerous if not controlled in a professional environment. Professional extractors shy away from the precarious “open” extraction method that can be conducted at home. They opt for the “closed” extraction method, which is safer, done in professional environments, with sophisticated equipment. More than this, there are many other extraction methods available. For example, the CO2 or the ice-water extraction; these are much safer and reduce the possibility of an explosion.

Medical Benefits of Dabbing

While dabbing may be in an awkward phase at the moment, there are many advantages associated with this method. All in all, cannabis concentrates have a lot to offer patients and cannabis consumers. Dabbing is just one ingenious method amongst others.

The Top 3 Most Popular Uses For Medical Marijuana


icon  20 Jan, 2016  /  icon  2        Author: Support Pot Valet

The Top 3 Most Popular Uses For Medical Marijuana

At this point, only 6% of medical studies about marijuana are analyzing its medicinal properties. It seems there are at least 2 active chemicals with medicinal applications in this plant. These chemicals are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While CBD impacts the brain without the high, the THC provides the high and pain relief, plus other properties. With that being said, let’s have a look at the top 3 most popular uses for medical marijuana.

Uses For Medical Marijuana

Marijuana Can Be Used to Treat Glaucoma

The eye disease known as glaucoma causes the pressure in the eyeball to increase. This damages the optic nerve and ends up in loss of vision. Marijuana can be used to treat and prevent glaucoma, as it decreases the pressure in the eye, according to the National Eye Institute. The effects of marijuana slow down the way the disease is progressing, and in the end, it may prevent blindness.

Uses For Medical Marijuana

Marijuana Helps Control Epileptic Seizures

A study conducted in 2013 shows that marijuana can prevent the seizures epilepsy is causing. Robert J. DeLorenzo from the Virginia Commonwealth University experienced with marijuana on epileptic rats. The results of the study showed that marijuana can rid the rats of seizures for about 10 hours. Like THC, other active chemicals in marijuana, bind to the brain cells that control excitability and regulate relaxation.

Uses For Medical Marijuana

Marijuana Stops Cancer From Spreading

The researchers at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco informed in 2007 that CBD prevent cancers from spreading. The study was published in the Molecular Cancer Therapeutics journal, and explained how cannabidiol turns off a gene known as Id-1. Cancer is triggered by the fact that cancer cells make more copies of this gene than of non-cancerous cells, and this way the cancerous cells spread through the entire body. The scientists studied breast cancer cells in the lab, which after being treated with cannabidiol, had lower Id-1 expression and were less aggressive spreaders.

Is Smoking Marijuana Bad for Your Lungs


icon  18 Jan, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: Support Pot Valet

Is Smoking Marijuana Bad for Your Lungs?

In spite of all the health benefits medical marijuana has to offer us, scientists and medical professionals have always wondered if smoking marijuana will damage our lungs. After all, we know for sure that smoking in general (cigarettes or tobacco) can have a negative impact over the lungs; so perhaps the smoke of marijuana also does. However, according to a study conducted at Emory University, this may not be the case.

Marijuana

A NHANES (National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys) cross sectional-analysis discovered that adults between 18 and 59 years old, who smoked one joint (a marijuana cigarette) a day, were able to exhale the same FEV1 (forced expiratory volume, also known as the expiratory volume of air), in one second. Spirometry, which measures a person’s ability to exhale, is the method through which doctors diagnose respiratory illnesses that impair lung function. It was the method applied to the subjects involved in the NHANES study.

Marijuana smokers who smoked more than one joint a day were more likely to develop minor symptoms that were similar to those of bronchitis. These symptoms were a cough and a sore throat. These symptoms seemed to be from very minimal to non-existent, and appeared less often, in subjects who used vaporizers instead of joints.

Marijuana

Vaporizers are used by many marijuana smokers. They heat the plant up just enough for it to release the active chemicals. This means the plant doesn’t need to be combusted. This means it wasn’t the marijuana causing the minor symptoms, but more so the papers used by the subjects to roll their joints.

The current studies confirm what previous studies have proven. In a study performed in 2012, scientists identified that persons who smoked weed each day, for 7 years, experienced absolutely no adverse effects in their pulmonary function. Another study from 2013, conducted by Donald P. Tashkin from the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA found out that habitual use of marijuana doesn’t lead to abnormalities in lung function.

Marijuana

More studies will continue as marijuana and medical marijuana are becoming ever so increasingly popular. If you have any questions about getting access to medical marijuana, contact our team for help today.

3 Big Marijuana Myths Busted


icon  16 Jan, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: Support Pot Valet

Cannabis opponents have, for decades, controlled the message around this popular plant, and have spread a few lies about its actual effects. This caused the use of marijuana to be a stigmata, a cause with effects that haven’t still worn off. The failed and expensive US war on drugs continues, and it seems the criminalization of cannabis users and distributors is a main priority in this war. Some of the governmental agencies continue to stubbornly classify marijuana as dangerous and with no medical value, in spite of the stacks of evidence that prove the contrary.

cannabis

While many know the truth about cannabis (that it is more effective than some prescription drugs in treating some illnesses and that it is healthier than alcohol) and while more than half of Americans want it legalized, the marijuana myths are still around in some mainstream circles. Those who oppose legalization are determined to ignore the evidence.

Here are 3 of the marijuana myths that persist to some degree today, and the facts that debunk them:

cannabis

Myth 1 – Marijuana Causes Brain Damage

This myth surfaced only of late, and it is only based on one study in France. The study examined the brains of 20 heavy cannabis users and 20 non-smokers. There were differences in their brains, in the areas of cognitive and emotional processing. The media took these results to the open public, saying that marijuana reorganizes your brain, while the authors of the study clearly explained the results do not show this.

Cannabis

Myth 2 – Marijuana is Addictive

9% is the number of cannabis users who become addicted, according to a study from the 1990s. This still puts marijuana dependence risk below alcohol, which is 14% and tobacco, which is 24%, according to the same study.

Myth 3 – Marijuana is Worse than Tobacco for Your Lungs

Some argue that, because it is smoked without a filter, marijuana can cause damage to the lungs. A 2012 study on marijuana’s effects over the lungs came up with the conclusion that the marijuana use is not associated with adverse effects on pulmonary function. On top of that, cannabis can be ingested and not smoked. You can inhale it as a vapor, take it in tablet or food form, or rub it on your skin as a lotion or an oil.

The Latest Science Behind Medical Marijuana


icon  14 Jan, 2016  /  icon  1        Author: Support Pot Valet

The Latest Science Behind Medical Marijuana

Until now, almost half of the states in America have legalized medical marijuana. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not regulated it since the drugs remain at the federal level. This forces medical users to search for treatment by themselves.

There are thousands of years since humans have used cannabis, yet only in the past few decades have science professionals begun to really have a grasp on how the wide range of chemicals in cannabis function for the human health.

Medical Marijuana

Ingredients in Medical Marijuana

Among other ingredients, in marijuana there are at least 104 active cannabinoids.  These mimic the action of the brain’s signaling chemicals, which are known as endocannabinoids. These dock with some of the receptors that are situated on the surface of cells. For example, some of the cannabinoids dock with the receptors of adrenaline and serotonin. The most famous chemical in marijuana is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, substance that is mainly responsible with cannabis’s intoxicating side effects.

Medical Marijuana

Each and every one of these chemicals has a different reaction with different receptors in the brain. As an example, let’s take THCV. This substance blocks the mind-altering effects of THC while in the same time it combats inflammation in the body. These effects may help relieving the Parkinson’s disease’s symptoms and in the same time protect against liver damage. More than this, the same substance changes how the receptor for serotonin acts during psychosis episodes, thus making it a potential treatment for schizophrenia.

In the meantime, the unique activity of CBG at adrenaline and serotonin receptors makes medical marijuana a main candidate for dealing with pain. On the other hand, CBD and CBDA  are great candidates at dealing with nausea. Other possible uses of the cannabinoids in the plant include dealing with epilepsy, PTSD, stroke and even drug addiction.

Medical Marijuana

Besides the ingredients mentioned here, cannabis also contains 400 other compounds. Amongst these ones, some of them are flavonoids, limonenes and terpenes. These can also be found in herbs like oregano, and they have aromatic purposes, giving different marijuana strains their scents, tastes and distinctive colors.

More and more medical circles are accepting the use of medical marijuana, as scientific evidence shows that marijuana helps in the treatment of some illnesses. After cannabis has been legalized in some areas of the country, more and more people are starting to view this plan differently. The health benefits medical marijuana has to offer are more evident than ever. Many remarkable medical professionals have come to support the use of the plant as a treatment helper for many conditions.

Medical Marijuana Slows Down Alzheimer’s Progression

Studies revealed there has been an increase in the number of people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. This has determined a renewed interest in studies that search for medical solutions against the illness. The legalization of cannabis is seen by many as a new ray of hope for those showing early signs of Alzheimer’s. Marijuana has the ability to block the enzyme responsible with the progression of the disease. More than this, it helps with the prevention of protein clumps, which affect cognition and memory.

Medical Marijuana Stops HIV From Spreading Throughout the Body

Those who are HIV positive can also see benefits from medical marijuana.  Research performed on monkeys has revealed how the active ingredient in cannabis is instrumental in preventing the HI-Virus from spreading. This active ingredient is THC, which when received in daily dosages, leads to healthier cells in the body. Besides, marijuana also helps to improve the appetite, which is good news for those suffering from HIV.

Medical Marijuana Slows Down the Spread of Aggressive Cancer Cells

Medical Marijuana in Santa Barbara

Medical Marijuana in Santa Barbara


icon  31 Dec, 2015  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

Since August 2015, the Medical Marijuana Santa Barbara Program has benefited from one approved Medical Marijuana Dispensary, located in the Outer State Street area. More than this, Santa Barbara has two more pending applications: one in the Upper De la Vina region, another in the Milpas region.

The city of Santa Barbara needs to take action before March 1, 2016 if it really wants to manage its dispensaries. Governor Jerry Brown signed 3 laws in October that have to do with the cultivation, transport and also the selling of medical marijuana in Santa Barbara. They would not substitute for local laws that municipalities make before the deadline.

As the suggested ordinance is created at this point, Santa Barbara will permit as much as 3 dispensaries yet no commercial farming. Just citizens with a doctor’s notice can cultivate medical marijuana at home. There are as much as 25, 000 medical marijuana patients in the South County, Howe stated, however it is going to be important to not grow very rapidly.

The Architectural Board of Review has recently approved the proposal for the Milpas region, and the application for 2609 De la Vina St. continues to be criticized.

Medical Marijuana Santa Barbara Greenland’s services are available online, offering medical marijuana to patients who live in Santa Barbara, Goleta, Carpinteria, Montecito and Isla Vista. Santa Barbara Greenland is a non-profit association that functions in strict compliance with the California law.

Medical Marijuana for Migraines


icon  24 Dec, 2015  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

Medical Marijuana for Migraines

Before knowing all about medical marijuana for migraines, it is essential to first identify what a migraine is. The chronic headache that is most likely caused by the spasm and narrowing of blood vessels carrying blood to the brain is known as a migraine. The headache is so intense and can happen from once a year to as often as a few times a week. Besides the pain, other symptoms of a migraine may include nausea, sensitivity and vomiting. The identified factors of a migraine may be stress, caffeine, anger, hormonal imbalances or nicotine.

Finding a solution to cure the pains from migraines is essential. Medical marijuana has been one of these solutions that has helped migraine sufferers release some of the tension and relieve some of the pain from these painful headaches.

Why Use Medical Marijuana for Migraines?

There is scientific proof medical marijuana is an effective treatment for migraines. The main component in marijuana, which is THC, is known to have neuroprotective and analgesic effects that relieve the pain brought on by migraine attacks. With marijuana’s history of being illegal, this surely has not been advertised much as a highly effective treatment for migraines.

More than this, people have also been a little bit scared of using medical marijuana for migraines, thinking the only way to use medical marijuana is by smoking it. This is the wrong idea as there are many other delivery methods that can be used: vaporization, putting cannabis in your foods, or taking it sublingually (in the form of tinctures).

Medical Marijuana for Migraines Being Made Legal

Medical marijuana being made legal should be a welcomed development to those who suffer from migraines and avoid taking prescription drugs because they don’t want the side effects these drugs have. The most common side effects of the medicine for migraines are: sleepiness, fatigue, nausea, racing heartbeat, having difficulties thinking and also numbness. Not to mention some patients become addicted to their painkillers.

Medical marijuana is an alternative treatment for migraines, which doesn’t present any known side effects and it is proven to not develop addiction.

Marijuana and Cancer Treatment

Marijuana and Cancer Treatment

Those interested in marijuana cancer treatment should have a look over the next few paragraphs, and see what this miraculous plant can do.

Marijuana has been used as an herbal remedy for centuries. Scientists have discovered cannabinoids, the biologically active components in marijuana, to be biologically active and effective in treating some diseases, including cancer. At present, the US Drug Enforcement Administration has listed marijuana and the cannabinoids under the Schedule I controlled substances, which means is only legal to treat some of the medical conditions in many states.

Marijuana and Cancer Treatment Studies

Marijuana and Cancer

 

Several scientific studies of smoked marijuana discovered that it could be useful in dealing with vomiting and nausea from the cancer treatment of chemotherapy.

A number of reports have discovered that inhaled (used to smoke or perhaps vaporized) marijuana could possibly help in the therapy of neuropathic pain (aches brought on by damaged nerves).

Testing has also proved that smoked marijuana has also helped improve the diet in HIV sufferers. Research has long demonstrated that individuals who used marijuana extract in medical testing tended to require much less pain medication.

Cannabinoids in Marijuana Cancer Treatment

Marijuana and cancer

 

Recently, researchers disclosed that THC along with other cannabinoids like CBD cause slow development and/or trigger death in some forms of cancer cells growing in a laboratory. A few animal scientific studies also suggest that particular cannabinoids can slow growth and also decrease spread of some types of cancer.

There have been a few early medical tests of cannabinoids in the treatment of cancer in human beings and more scientific studies are planned. As the tests to date demonstrate that cannabinoids could be safe in dealing with cancer although, they cannot prove that they assist control or treat the disease.

As of yet, counting on marijuana for cancer treatment as your only means for therapy while staying away from or postponing conventional medical care for cancer could have severe health implications.

Marijuana Can Fight The Fight Against Glaucoma


icon  19 Dec, 2015  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

Can Marijuana Help Treat Glaucoma?

It is estimated, according to World Health Organization, that glaucoma is the second cause of blindness and about half of Americans with glaucoma are not even aware of it. Studies reveal that glaucoma could be genetic, yet science continues to be uncertain on what causes glaucoma to build and worsen. It’s been debatable over the last several years whether or not marijuana can help treat glaucoma, let’s look at some facts below and  put this discussion to rest.

Medical Marijuana

How Does Marijuana Impact Glaucoma?

What has been discovered is that, together with other treatments, marijuana has significantly diminished vision loss caused by glaucoma. Usually, what causes glaucoma is pressure in the eye. Studies have shown some chemicals in marijuana have the positive effects of reducing the intra-ocular pressure, also known as IOP, by as much as 25%.

Some would say this is an insignificant gain when you are thinking of the side effects of marijuana, but that conclusion doesn’t hold any weight. While marijuana is known to cause some elevated heart risk to some aged patients, the majority of users report little to no side effects when it comes to regular, medicinal use of the plant.

Medical Marijuana

Is Marijuana a Treatment for Glaucoma?

Marijuana is not an all-in-one magical treatment for glaucoma. There are other medicines and remedies such as drops that reduce the pressure in the eye by diluting and other processes. However and unfortunately, these other methods may not be as effective as they are still in the research process. Since there are no other treatments or cures for glaucoma, alternative treatments such as treating glaucoma with marijuana, is not only to be preferred, but may be absolutely necessary at this point.

Medical Marijuana

The research and testing will continue but the next steps are to find a solution so that a new delivery system gets put in place for glaucoma sufferers, which will let them benefit and treat their glaucoma with medical marijuana without the need to smoke it.

Relaxed Cannabis Drug Laws benefit Tourism in Colorado

Relaxed Cannabis Drug Laws Bring Tourism To Colorado

 

cannabis drug

Business owners in Colorado have claimed for a while now that legalization of the cannabis drug has improved tourism in the area, but now there is proof.

It has been found in a recent study by the Colorado Tourism Office that many tourists are drawn to Colorado due to its relaxed weed laws and due to the easy accessibility to the substance. For a long time, it had been suggested that the increase in visitors was due to the marketing campaigns put in place, but the study shows that contrary to this belief, the increased marketing spending has not caused the tourism industry to succeed.

 

Ad Campaign And Marijuana Dispensaries Responsible For Tourism Rise

 

Cannabis drug

More than 48% of the time, it was found that tourists cited that Colorado’s relaxed laws on cannabis were the main attraction although the ad campaign has been relatively successful.

Al White, the former boss of the Colorado Tourism office says that the relaxed laws are certainly a significant influence on tourism, although he said that it would be interested to know if the influence was a positive or negative one. Only 8% of those who took the survey said that they had obtained marijuana from a marijuana dispensary.

After having spent $5.3 million to launch their ad campaign, which resulted in 11.1 million households across America seeing the ad, Colorado received around 2.1 million visitors. These leisure tourists brought an estimated $2.6 billion. This is some proof that the advert also helped the tourism trade.

The ad however does not mention marijuana once, although 48% of those who took the survey said that marijuana was influential to a degree.

The legalization of the sale of recreational marijuana was passed on January 1st 2014 and in the first year the same survey was carried out. In that year, 64% of those asked claimed that marijuana had nothing to do with their decision to vacation there. Even those who had traveled due to the relaxed laws in 2014 did not seem to be entirely drawn to Colorado due to the laws. This year, 20% said that they would be more likely to return to Colorado due to the relaxed laws.

 

Future Looks Promising For Colorado’s Tourism

Cannabis drug

The increased tourism to Colorado has done wonders for the economy. By increasing the sales of marijuana, the substance continues to pour taxes into the economy. Colorado businesses also benefit from the increased income brought by the additional tourists. It is also evident that the relaxed laws on marijuana have not caused any increase in crime rates. If anything, crime in Colorado has seen a marked improvement. It remains to be seen however, how the increased tourism trade could affect Colorado’s crime levels in the longer term.

Interesting Facts About Marijuana That You Should Know

Some Interesting Facts About Marijuana That You Should Know

There Is No Evidence That Young People Will Be Affected By Relaxing Marijuana Laws

Medical Marijuana

Many people who oppose the legalization of recreational or even medical marijuana often try to make the claim that adolescents and young people will suffer as a result of the slacker laws. It has actually been proven however in the states where marijuana has already been legalized that this simply isn’t the case. If anything, there has been a decrease in marijuana abuse amongst younger adults in those states. This is probably because of the legalization taking away the glamor and taboo from the substance and greater availability via legitimate means such as marijuana dispensaries. The decriminalization of marijuana in these states has also seen a decline in the numbers of marijuana related crimes committed by adults.

Marijuana Is Certainly Not A Gateway Drug

Medical Marijuana

Most people who have used marijuana for recreational or medicinal use have never used any other drug apart from those medically prescribed to them. It is the most easily accessible illegal drug however across America, so it is not at all surprising that people who have taken dangerous drugs such as heroin, cocaine and LSD may have used marijuana at some point or another. Trying to say that everyone who uses harder drugs also used marijuana at some point however is like trying to say that everyone who develops a life threatening illness drinks coffee. It means absolutely nothing and certainly doesn’t mean that those who use recreational or medical marijuana will eventually move onto stronger substances.

Marijuana Can Have Effects On Driving

Medical Marijuana

Even though the effects of marijuana on driving are quite slight, marijuana can impair a driver’s sense of awareness and alertness. Whilst it is not as bad as driving under the influence of alcohol, driving whilst smoking marijuana is something that should be avoided. The problem however is that it is very difficult to tell how much of the cannabis drug a driver has used and how recently as marijuana chemicals stay in a user’s system for a long time, even after the effects of the drug has worn off. It is therefore important that users understand the implications of driving within a short time of using marijuana. Even with the mild danger that can be posed due to using marijuana shortly before driving however, there are not many driving offenses that have been recorded as a result of the driver being under the influence of marijuana and those that have been are generally under the influence of another substance such as alcohol at the time.

Cannabis Drug Not Likely Cause For Traffic Accidents


icon  11 Nov, 2015  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

Cannabis Drug Is Not Likely A Cause For Traffic Accidents

 

Colorado made the decision to legalize the cannabis drug for its
residents in 2012. The opposition to the vote predicted an increase in those driving under the influence of marijuana, and in turn an increase in traffic accidents whilst under the influence of the drug. Some claim that the substance can cause response times to suffer and that the user’s judgment may become impaired when under the influence.

According to statistics published when cannabis was first legalized in Colorado in 2001, there was a spike in traffic accidents involving drivers who had tested positive for marijuana, which campaigners attribute to the relaxed laws. Pot supporters however, argue that before marijuana was legalized, a third of drivers involved in accidents tested positive for marijuana anyway.

Medical Marijuana Detectable For Weeks After Side Effects Wear Off

 

Cannabis DrugEven though statistics do exist, it is actually next to impossible to get realistic statistics from testing. Whilst it is possible to accurately detect how much alcohol a driver still has in their system, when it comes to pot, things are very different. The test for recreational or medical marijuana simply tests for metabolites in the body, which can actually linger for days and sometimes even weeks after marijuana has been used. If a driver tests positive for marijuana, all this tells the police is that they have used marijuana at some point over the past few days. Side effects from using marijuana wear off after a few hours so the driver may actually be perfectly safe to drive.

Legalizing The Cannabis Dispensary Gives Explanation For Surge In Cannabis Users

 

Explaining the statistics of the 2001 statistics for road traffic
accidents becomes simple considering the public’s response to legalization. As marijuana became legally available, it was only to be expected that more drivers would be likely to have used the drug within the days or weeks before their accidents. Of course, the increase in numbers of drivers with pot in their system also means that other groups of people at the time would have had a similar increase in the use of the drug. These statistics do not mean that marijuana is a contributing factor in accidents or fatalities on the roads.

Proving that a driver is ‘stoned’ or not continues to be a difficult case to prove. If highway officers want to pursue any punishments for using marijuana bought legally from a cannabis dispensary and then driving under the influence, then congress will need to have many more debates before they can come to a decision that is fair for the driver. A zero tolerance policy would clearly be unfair, as it is difficult to ensure that your body is completely free from cannabis before driving, especially if you take the drug for medicinal purposes on a regular basis. This would mean that people would not be able to drive for weeks after using the drug.

Medical Marijuana and the 2016 Presidential Election


icon  20 Oct, 2015  /  icon  2        Author: Support Pot Valet

Looming Election Could Mean Disaster For Marijuana In 2016

The upcoming 2016 presidential elections are looming, Medical Marijuanaand with them come many questions about what this could mean for Americans. Supporters of marijuana legalization are wondering just where the current candidates stand when it comes to the subject of the cannabis drug reform. Is it likely that they are going to support the use of medicinal marijuana or even marijuana legalization for recreation use?

 

Why Are Supporters Of The Cannabis Collective So Concerned?

 

The debate about marijuana has more to do with simply support or opposition to the drug. It is important for candidates to make themselves clear about what will happen when it comes to federal and state legislation. The current laws allow states to make their own rules when it comes to state-wide marijuana legislation, whilst the federal government has its own guidelines too. It is important for voters to know each candidates views so that they can make an informed decision about which candidate best supports their views.

 

Which Candidates Are In Favor Of Legalization?

 

Bernie Sanders and Lincoln Chafee are both democratic candidates. They have both made it clear that they are in supMedical Marijuanaport of allowing citizens to use and carry small quantities of pot without penalty. They also support medicinal use of marijuana. These candidates have even expressed an interest in creating federal decriminalization of cannabis, which would be a huge step for the future of marijuana in America. Other democratic candidates, Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley have shown an interest in legalizing the drug.

The republican camp however still shows resistance against the drug as far as federal legalization goes, but they largely are in support of states having the right to create their own laws. There are some candidates however that are fully opposed to the legalization of cannabis such as Mike Huckabee, and who don’t want to see legalization for either federal or state legislation.

 

What’s In Store For The Future?

 

It is a worrying thought for supporters that there could be a huge Medical Marijuanaimpact on medical marijuana reform if the wrong candidate is chosen. There have been many slow but steady changes in accepting the benefits of cannabis with the current president, but if a new candidate is chosen, all of that progress could become undone. The future is uncertain for those businesses that rely on marijuana trade, whilst state economies that have improved since marijuana legalization could also suffer.

Marijuana reform remains an important subject for cannabis collective supporters. It is hoped that the best candidate will be chosen so that those whose health relies on it can have access to this useful substance. So far, it looks like there’s a 50/50 chance that a president will be elected that supports cannabis legalization for America.

Just How Medical Is Medical Marijuana?


icon  04 Aug, 2015  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

How Medical Is Medical Marijuana?

Medical Marijuana is becoming more readily available to those who live in states that are lifting the Medical Marijuanalaws on the substance. Whilst the federal government are sticking stubbornly to their guns that weed is dangerous, many states have now taken advantage of their rights to decide independently on the matter so even if marijuana isn’t legalized across the board, more and more Americans are finding that if they have the correct paperwork, they can legally access prescription cannabis from a marijuana dispensary or buy medical marijuana online.

Whilst some argue that giving medical access to marijuana simply leaves the market open to abuse from those who want to use it for recreational use, there is plenty of research to show that it has many useful medical properties.

Should People Be Allowed To Buy Medical Marijuana Online With These Medical Benefits?

Medical MarijuanaImpressive research statistics show that medical marijuana can effectively remove the nausea and vomiting side effects from chemotherapy treatments.  There is also evidence to show that pain that is experienced whilst undergoing treatment can also be dramatically relieved with this use of cannabis.  Although there are many findings that show that marijuana is effective in dealing with pain, medical professionals still stress that the drug should only be used as a last resort when other medication has been found to be unsuitable or ineffective.

Marijuana has also been shown to improve the sleep routines of users and to significantly reduce the feelings of anxiety in those who suffer from mental health conditions.  It has been so effective in doing this that marijuana is frequently prescribed for those who suffer from PTSD.

Overuse Of The Cannabis Drug Can Lead To Misuse

Even though there are some important benefits to being able to buy medical marijuana online, it isMedical Marijuana still important to treat it with some caution and to ensure that it is regulated to some extent. Marijuana also has many side effects that can be experienced when using it, either for the first time or over prolonged amounts of time. These side effects extend to dizziness, dry mouth, dizziness and fatigue, along with the possibility of addition and abuse. As well as considering allowing those who need the drug to have access to it, the government have recently started to think about how they could possibly reach out and help those who have become dependent on the drug.

As more studies are carried out, many of which are funded by the federal government, it is expected that results will show that marijuana has even more benefits that we are not yet aware of, or that claims will be backed up. Supporters are hoping that new research will help sway the federal government’s minds and encourage them to downgrade the dangerous status of the cannabis drug.

Breakthrough For Marijuana Cannabis Users on Oregon Flights

Breakthrough For Marijuana Cannabis Users on Oregon Flights

On July 1st 2015, a new law was passed in Oregon, making it one of the few states to allow the use of 29894895_Stillmarijuana as a recreational drug, not just for medicinal purposes. This cannabis news means a dramatic change in culture for Oregon and airport security is beginning to see some changes too. Those who are traveling via plane through Oregon will no longer be subjected to penalties if they are caught carrying marijuana cannabis onto planes.

Security More Important Than Passengers Who Buy Marijuana Online

marijuanaPortland International airport is Oregon’s largest, and it has now declared that officials will not be on the look out for passengers carrying small amounts of pot anymore. In the past, passengers traveling through the airport who were caught in possession of even the smallest amounts of pot were criminalized and faced severe consequences. Now, the Transportation Security Administration have explained that they want to place their focuses on the biggest threats to the safety of aviation, and that a passenger will not face any penalties as long as they are following the rules and keeping the amount of marijuana on their person to under one ounce. If you are an Oregon resident, you should be aware that you can purchase up to an ounce when you buy marijuana online when you want to travel.

This new move will see a change in the way that marijuana is handled within the airport. The new procedure that will be followed by officials is for security staff to contact airport police, who will then verify that the passenger in possession of the marijuana has less than one ounce with them and that they are of the legal age for ownership. As long as this checks out, they will be permitted to continue with their travels without further incident.

Warning For Those Traveling To States Who Have Not Legalized The Cannabis Dispensary20131107122201-Marijuana-States-of-America-2011-05-Full

It should be noted that even though Oregon allows the recreational use of the drug, passengers should remember to leave their pot at home if they will be traveling to any other state, as not many states have approved the drug for full recreational use. If you want to simply fly to another airport within Oregon however, then keeping the marijuana with you will be fine.

New Cannabis News Not Pleasing Everyone

The legalization of marijuana for recreational purposes within the state of Oregon was celebrated in Portland on July 3rd with a ‘Weed the People’ rally, however the new guidelines for traveling with the substance on planes, which is usually purchased from an online cannabis dispensary, has not pleased everyone. Whilst passengers haven’t complained about the right to carry pot on board, they have been drawing attention to the seemingly ridiculous rules that although marijuana cannabis is permitted, a canister of hairspray or a bottle of shampoo is still not allowed on flights.

NBA Players want Medical Marijuana For Pain Relief


icon  15 Jul, 2015  /  icon  2        Author: Support Pot Valet

NBA Players Call for Permission to Use Medical Marijuana For Pain Relief

Medical Marijuana

The federal government is currently taking one, pretty stubborn stance on marijuana, whilst some states are locally legalizing marijuana either for regulated medicinal use or even for full recreational use. This is making the whole subject of marijuana quite complicated.

Whilst there are state relaxations on marijuana, the National Basketball Association, like the feds, are maintaining a full ban on the use of the substance. At present, those players found to be using marijuana, by means of testing or otherwise face suspension amongst a range of other penalties. The question now arises – should the NBA continue it’s blanket ban on the substance for medicinal use now that 23 states and counting have legalized Medical Marijuana For Pain Relief or for other medicinal purposes?

Players Unanimously Agree They Should Be Allowed Access to Medical Marijuana Benefits

10 NBA players have spoken anonymously to express their desires to have the NBA reassess their views medical-marijuana-pain-managementon Marijuana.   Ultimately, the players wish to have marijuana removed from the NBA’s list of banned substances, if for nothing else, for the Medical Marijuana Benefits for those players who have a valid medical prescription for the drug.

The players have a valid point. If a person has a prescription for any drug, then why shouldn’t they be allowed to take it? Medical treatments are given for a reason and the ethics should be questioned when an organization chooses to bar a person from taking something that has been prescribed by a medical profession. Whilst players agree that the NBA shouldn’t necessarily shout about allowing marijuana use amongst players, they believe that players should have the right to access medical marijuana without penalties from the Association.

Changes Wont Come Overnight For Those Who Want To See Medical Marijuana Allowed in the NBA

Medical MarijuanaWhilst the players seem to unanimously agree that the NBA should relax their attitude towards medical marijuana, they understand that the changes won’t come quickly. The NBA works on a bargaining session system, the next of which wont be until 2017. This will be the next possible time that the NBA Players’ Association will be able to discuss the matter of marijuana and its future within the NBA. Whilst this seems a long way off, it does give the Players’ Association, which has the players’ rights as their highest priority, the time they need to put a case together for the safe use of medicinal marijuana in the NBA.

Although there is still a long way to go, and a lot of time in the way, it does seem that there is the possibility for players in the NBA to have the right to use medical marijuana without punishment from the organization. As it seems that players feel strongly about having the right to use medicinal marijuana, it is hoped that when the panel does meet, it will vote in favor of the player’s requests.

New research finds Cannabis Drug to be safer than alcohol


icon  13 Jul, 2015  /  icon  2        Author: Support Pot Valet

New research finds the Cannabis Drug to be safer than alcohol

Contrary to federal government beliefs, it would seem that the cannabis drug could be even less cannabis-vs-alcoholdangerous than previously thought. The substance remains on the federal government’s list of dangerous drugs, classed as a schedule 1 substance although there have been no recorded cases of any deaths being directly attributed to the use of marijuana. In comparison to other drugs, including legal alcoholic beverages, it looks like marijuana by a long shot is the safest.

Interesting Cannabis News for Supporters of Legalization

In one research study carried out earlier this year, it was found that the risk of death associated with any known drug could be quantified with the use of charts. The effects were quite startling. Alcohol seems to be the leader as the most deadly abused substance, with heroin following closely behind. Tobacco falls somewhere in the middle, but by a long shot, marijuana is a very low risk substance, according to the study,

imrs.phpWeed has been found to be around 114 times less likely to cause death than alcohol. This is the result considering the lethal dose required for death in comparison to the actual amount that a user of any given substance may actually use. Marijuana was in fact the only substance tested that gave almost no risk of death at all.

Considering the many bills and debates centered around the legalization of marijuana at the moment, this Cannabis News comes at a good time, although it’s by no means new news. Around a decade ago, a similar experiment was carried out, which used very slightly different calculations. The findings of that experiment yielded almost identical results to this most recent test. This research, along with other research of a similar caliber could be what the government and lawmakers need to make their decisions regarding the drug.

Hope for the People to Legally Buy Medical Marijuana

Whilst the findings show that marijuana is safer than alcohol, this does not mean that it is perfectly safe,illegal-marijuana-deaths-compared and it is important that the government comes up with ways to ensure that it is being used safely and produced lawfully. Legalizing marijuana could assist with this as marijuana dispensaries and legal retailers of the cannabis drug could give users safe and regulated means to use the drug and Buy Medical Marijuana.

It is interesting to consider the red tape that still blocks people from using marijuana throughout some parts of America, given its low risk status, whilst alcohol and nicotine remain to be regulated but legal. Supporters of legalization hope that in the very near future there will be a universal understanding of the drug, to not only allow people to Buy Medical Marijuana, but that the criminalization associated with it will soon be a thing of the past.

$3 Million Boost For Marijuana Cannabis Drug Addiction

$3 million boost for Marijuana Cannabis drug addiction research as Obama supports legalisation

It has been announced that the National Institute of Health is pledging a huge $3 million to help find Marijuana Cannabis drug addictiontreatments for those who suffer from Marijuana Cannabis addiction.  It is estimated that over 4 million Americans are addicted to the substance and as president Obama helps fight with more states to legalise marijuana across the board, the assistance for those who want to get over their addiction shows a greater understanding from the government.

The proposal for the grant outlines the concern to the public’s health, suggesting that this is an issue that demands attention.  Marijuana is a popular drug and users rely on it for a number of reasons, from Medical Marijuana For Pain Relief to treating health problems and because of this, it is becoming increasingly important to find a way to safely provide marijuana to the public.

A better understanding to help those who are addicted

Marijuana Cannabis drug addictionThe $3 million proposal will assist three planned projects that are focussed on controlling marijuana dependency.  To date, no medication has been approved to assist with those who are addicted to the drug.  It was noted that marijuana is the drug that is most likely to be used amongst Americans, with the highest probability that this will be the substance of choice for abuse or dependency amongst those who illegally Buy Marijuana Online.

The president was recorded in March to have stated that he believed marijuana to be no more dangerous than alcohol and has admitted to having used it himself in his younger years.  Since Obama came to power, the Department of Justice has pledged to not enforce any laws in specific States, and to instead allow the states themselves to decide what action they wish to take when it comes to the handling of marijuana use and sale.  So far, 23 states have allowed marijuana for medicinal use, whilst 4 states, and the District of Columbia have fully legalised marijuana for recreational use as well as for medicinal use and Medical Marijuana For Pain Relief.  This latest move toward the acceptance of marijuana amongst US citizens has removed bans on applications for research into the substance.

Bad Vibes From the Media Considering The Government’s Reluctance to Allow the Public to Buy Marijuana OMarijuana Cannabis drug addictionnline

The proposal to plunge $3 million of taxpayer’s money into marijuana developments however hasn’t exactly proven a hit with the media though.  A waste of money, fraud and hypocrisy have been just some of accusations made by the media with flames of disgust being aimed directly at the federal government and it’s barres to prevent the public from being able to Buy Marijuana Online.  Even so, the government is striving to move forwards, insisting that as well as the benefits of marijuana, people need to accept that there are problems too and that it is possible to help tackle these problems with the right research and knowledge.

Effects Of Medical Cannabis On Cancer

Research Continues Into The Effects Of Medical Cannabis On Cancer

 

Whilst most of America debates the advantages and disadvantages of  Medical Cannabis use, more benefits of the substances are beginning to resurface, and none more so than it’s ability to actually reduce the likelihood ofa patient developing lung cancer.

Medical Cannabis

 

Buy Marijuana Online To Protect Against Lung Cancer

 

Whilst some may feel that marijuana use in treating lung cancer is counter productive, since there is so much evidence to suggest that smoking tobacco can cause cancer itself, more research is emerging that dispels these old beliefs.  It is becoming more and more apparent that being able to Buy Marijuana Online could help people reduce their risk of developing lung cancer.

 

Medical Cannabis Fights Multiple Myeloma

 

Medical CannabisNew research also shows that marijuana can be instrumental in fighting multiple myeloma.  This is a cancer that attacks the bone marrow and is found in one per cent of those who suffer from cancer around the world.  It also claims the lives of 2% of those who die from cancer each year.

Studies into the cancerous cells in bone marrow have been positive so far.  If the research company that is studying it at the moment, One World, is successful, it will be able to look into the effects of different strengths of CBD and THC to help treat the cancer and even help reduce it’s effects.

 

New Medical Marijuana Delivery Service Options

 

The research company, One World, is also looking at a new Medical Marijuana Delivery Service that would help doctors to safely prescribe marijuana for medicinal use.  A tablet form looks to be one of the best options to do this, as it allows doctors and medical professionals to control the dosage and frequency of the substance that is taken by the patient.

 

FDA Barricade To The Healing Benefits Of Marijuana

 

Whilst there are many pharmaceutical companies trying to investigate the effects that marijuana has on not only cancer but also many other life threatening illnesses.  A major barricade to research however is the federal government, who still has marijuana listed as a Schedule 1 drug.  Ironically, despite its healing abilities, it’s position on the dangerous drugs register, marijuana lies beside the likes of heroin and cocaine, with the feds claiming that it has no medical benefit.  For this reason, it looks like many medical breakthroughs that have been made so far will never be able to be of use to the general public.

 

Whilst there is still some way to go, almost half the states of America have now legalized marijuana for Medical Cannabisat least medicinal use, and it can be used by those suffering from certain medical conditions in these states, providing that they have the relevant paperwork.  2 states have even gone as far as completely legalizing marijuana for recreational use, with added benefits such as reduced drug related crimes and better economy for these states.  There is light at the end of the tunnel however, as many states that still impose criminal labels on those who Buy Marijuana Online are actually considering new bills that would lift current bans if they are fully approved.

5 Benefits for Cancer Patients Using Medical Cannabis


icon  26 Jun, 2015  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

5 Benefits for Cancer Patients Considering Using Medical Cannabis

Whilst lawmakers and scientists struggle to agree on the validity of any claims that Medical Cannabis is a miracle cure for cancer, it is evident that those who are already undergoing medical treatment for cancer can benefit from taking the substance. Chemotherapy is a long and traumatic procedure for anyone to have to go through, and the side effects that this can bring are debilitating.

Having Access to Medical Marijuana Delivery Service Can Help Ease Nausea

Chemotherapy can cause nausea and vomiting in patients but using marijuana during chemo treatment can ease this symptom. The FDA have even accepted that marijuana can assist in easing nausea and vomiting and have approved a tablet form of THC that can be used by patients. This has been available through Medical Marijuana Delivery Services since 1985.

Medical Cannabis

Medicinal Marijuana Can Control Mental Health Problems

Chemotherapy treatments can often cause depression as one of its many side effects. Marijuana is known for its ability to lift the user’s mood, and studies show that it is effective in alleviating the symptoms of anxiety and depression in users.

Marijuana can Help Sufferers Get More Sleep

There are many issues that cancer patients can suffer from when it comes to sleeping, including struggling to fall asleep, stay asleep and feeling as though they have not had a good night’s sleep even if they do manage to fall asleep. The THC in marijuana can improve the user’s ability to sleep and can be used by those undergoing chemotherapy treatments who are struggling to sleep as a result.

Marijuana is Great for Pain Relief

Cancer and chemotherapy can produce high levels of pain for a patient, and sufferers often find that prescribed medications to help give pain relief do little to help with the pain without causing further side effects. Marijuana can help block the pain receptors in the body, so if cancer sufferers use the substance, they can find that they receive the pain relief that they need.

Buy Medical Marijuana to Help Fight Cancer

Whilst the jury is still out on this one, there have been plenty of scientific studies that show that weed is effective in attacking cancerous cells and for some forms of cancer it would appear that marijuana can slow, reverse and even prevent cancerous cells from forming. Even if a patient finds that they do have cancer before they’ve even ever tried toBuy Medical Marijuana for any reason, they can find that using the substance can limit the disease and stop it from spreading.

These are just 5 of the many benefits that using marijuana can offer to those suffering from cancer. To limit, control, treat and even prevent cancer in patients, the FDA and the scientists should continue to research the drug to discover more ways that it may be used to help those who are living with the disease.

Louisiana Close to Seeing Medical Marijuana Legalized

Louisiana Close to Seeing Medical Marijuana Legalized

2015 has been a great year for supporters of medical marijuana legalization in the state of Louisiana. So far, a new bill that proposes access to medicinal marijuana for all those who need it has made it’s way a long way through the ranks of local governmental approval. Now, the fate of this new legislation lies in the hands of Governor bobby Jindal. If the bill is passed, it would make Louisiana the 24th state in America to allow it’s citizens to legally access the substance.

The next step of the approval process looks positive for citizens of Louisiana. Jindal has already outwardly confirmed that he is in support of legalizing marijuana for the good health of those who would benefit from it. He has even gone so far as to admit that he was already had a chance to look at the bill and that if he had the chance to approve it, he would.

Medical Marijuana

How Would Louisiana’s Cannabis Dispensary System Work?

The bill would only allow medical marijuana in a form that it could not be smoked in. That means that it would need to be made into a pill or oils. There would then be 10 Cannabis Dispensaries at various locations around Louisiana where citizens could Buy Medical Marijuana. There would only be one authorized area for growing the marijuana for this purpose.

It is likely that the Louisiana State University is going to be the location that would have the highest chance of obtaining the license to cultivate the drug, along with the Southern University. If neither of these locations are interested in the project, then other companies would be able to enter a bidding process to try to find a suitable location.

Who Could Access Marijuana in the State?

There would only be a number of conditions covered under the new bill. These include Glaucoma, quadriplegia and those undergoing treatment for cancer. This would not remain the case forever though, as the University of Louisiana would be given the power to give their own recommendations for further conditions or diseases such as epilepsy, that could potentially be added to the list.

10 Marijuana Dispensaries Could be Chosen Where Citizens Could Buy Medical Marijuana

The locations for the 10 authorized cannabis dispensaries around the state would be existing pharmacies. Each pharmacy would be subjected to a review and the staff would need additional training and medicinal marijuana would be given under prescription to those patients who have been prescribed the drug by their doctor. All sales of the substance would be tracked to protect the safe distribution of the drug and to ensure that the only people who access the drug would be those authorised to Buy Medical Marijuana.

The bill would expire after 5 years, which would force Louisiana to assess the system and how successfully it performs. This would determine whether the state chooses to maintain the legislation or to ban the drug again.

Marijuana Delivery for Veterans Could Help PTSD


icon  30 May, 2015  /  icon  5        Author: Support Pot Valet

How The Feds Are Learning That Marijuana Delivery for Veterans Could Help PTSD

Whilst 23 states and counting have locally legalized the use of marijuana delivery services to some extent, with more following suit, it seems strange that the federal government are still having a hard time believing that there is any truth behind research about medicinal marijuana. Whilst studies have shown that marijuana has helped veterans who are suffering from PTSD, it has not been enough for the federal government to accept the truth, until now. Finally, the feds have approved a study, and if the results prove to be positive, this could see a move towards Marijuana Delivery being approved as a viable treatment for the strains of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Colorado Backs PTSD Study In Step Towards Vets Being Allowed To Buy Medical Marijuana

Recently, members of congress actually voted out the possibility of veterans discussing the possibility of being offered a Medical Marijuana Delivery Service to help them with their PTSD, but hopes are high now that the new study that has been commissioned by the government will change the minds of those who previously voted ‘no’.The study has been backed by the state of Colorado, who is one of the only states in America to have fully legalized marijuana for recreational use. Colorado raised the $2million to get the study off the ground.

In addition to the years it has taken to reach this breakthrough, the process has not been without its setbacks. The research team have already been challenged by congress about the reliability of the samples when they Buy Medical Marijuana that they will be testing. The team admitted that the quality of the cannabis that they had planned on using for the study couldn’t be determined. Instead, the study has had to go on hold whilst a special order of cannabis is grown in a controlled environment by the University of Mississippi.

Step Towards Legalization of A PTSD Medical Marijuana Delivery Service

The study,however, is now almost ready. There will be 76 subjects, all veterans suffering from PTSD, who, over 6 weeks will be given 4 different varieties of cannabis, each with varying levels of THC and cannabinoids to see which elements of the substance work the most effectively with PTSD.

Whilst veterans are the subjects of this study for now, there is nothing to say that if successful, the scope for treating PTSD would not be extended to the wider population.

It is not likely that the federal government will change their mind completely on their stance when it comes to marijuana, but hopefully, this study will be another step in the right direction in breaking down the defences that the feds have built up, blocking invaluable research into marijuana and its many benefits.

Legalizing Marijuana Delivery Service in Louisiana


icon  28 May, 2015  /  icon  3        Author: Support Pot Valet

Legislation Points Louisiana in the Right Direction for Legalizing a Marijuana Delivery Service

Whilst Louisiana has been known to have overly strict policies on marijuana related offenses, new laws that are being taken into consideration would drastically reduce the effect of the penalties imposed on marijuana related arrests. New legislation was approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee in Louisiana just last week, which focuses on re-evaluating the current laws in the state that are inflicted on those offenders who have offended in the past. The next step for the bill is to go to the full senate for consideration. Whilst citizens would still not be able to use a Marijuana Delivery Service legally, it is possible that they could experience lesser penalties.

Marijuana delivery

Lower Sentences for Those Who Order Medical Marijuana Online

It was only last year that a bill that had been proposed by Senator J.P. Morrell that had similarities to the current proposition. That bill didn’t get too far, so this most recent approval is certainly a step in the right direction. It’s hoped that this sudden change in attitude towards such bills is due to the shift in opinion of law enforcement groups who so far are not interjecting with the approval of the bill.

This bill, if it goes all the way to being fully approved, will mean that there will be some significant changes to the way that minor pot offenses are handled. One-time offenders would no longer face prosecution and instead would be given a warning. So long as they didn’t commit another minor offense for just 2 years, they would have the offense removed from their criminal record.

8 Years Max for Those Who Order Marijuana Online

Even those who have offended in the past would see more relaxed punishments. Previous offenders may still face jail time, however the time that they are expected to be incarcerated for would be much less than they would at present. For example, at the moment, a person who was on their third offense could expect to get up to 20 years in jail. In addition to this, up to $5000 in fines could be imposed too. This is quite excessive and a strain on the prison system. The new bill, HB149 would see the maximum jail term for repeat offenders reduced to just 8 years at the most.

Whilst the new bill does not promise complete relaxation in the laws regarding marijuana, the approval of the bill would see Louisiana begin to leave behind it’s negative and old fashioned outlook on marijuana. Non-violent offenders would spend less time in prison, giving a better criminal system where those who do commit violent offenses could be pursued without worrying about these minor offenders. Whilst it may not be advisable to Order Marijuana Online, the penalties if caught would be much less.

Many believe that the state’s lack of compassion and understanding of the benefits of marijuana are detrimental to it’s citizens and hope that this bill may bring a change in feeling towards the substance, paving the way for legalization to orderMedical Marijuana Onlineand maybe one day, full legalization across the state.

Bob Marley’s Important Argument For Medical Marijuana


icon  23 May, 2015  /  icon  3        Author: Support Pot Valet

Bob Marley’s Important Argument For Medical Marijuana

One of the world’s most iconic musicians, and leading advocate for medical marijuana legalization would have been 70 years old this past February. Bob Marley, who was well known for composing and singing numerous memorable hits in the reggae style was remembered earlier this year to mark the occasion. In his home country of Jamaica, citizens celebrated by holding reggae jam sessions and his family commissioned a video in his name too to remember his ideals for making the world a better place.

Medical Marijuana

Herbs From Nature, The Planet’s Natural Medical Dispensary

One of the most memorable traits of Marley was how he publicly spoke out about Medical Marijuana and how much he believed in its many healing benefits. Bob Marley fiercely believed that there are spiritual, healing and meditational benefits to using the pant and defiantly opposed those who would try to use marijuana to incite fear and negativity amongst the public for political gain.

Bob’s Argument For The Legalization Of The Cannabis Drug

Marley would refer the Cannabis Drug as an herb and as an herb is a plant, he argued that herbs are good for everything and that something that is naturally occurring can’t possibly be as bad as politicians tried to make out. He made the point that politicians should have the public’s best interest and health as their highest priority, and by blocking the use of marijuana, even those who safely purchase it from a Medical Dispensary, this gives a very different message about their motives.

Whilst some may believe that Bob Marley’s message was simply to spread love and peace by getting high, his son believes differently. Ziggy Marley says that his father was a revolutionary. He explains that Bob was searching for social justice and acceptance. He wanted to encourage people to stand up for everything that they believed in, not just using marijuana. People should be entitled to basic human rights, and this was what Bob supported most of all. His message is just as relevant today as it was all those years ago.

A Chance For A Global Marijuana Delivery Service

Now, it is Bob Marley’s family who is working hard on his behalf to continue his efforts with marijuana legalization. They joined with a private company in 2014 to create a global Marijuana Delivery Service, using Marley as the mascot. The move, whilst intended to help everyone around the world to have access to marijuana if they require it, has also helped reawaken the memory of Marley for his family. His daughter remembers how her father used to feel that his mind opened whenever he used the drug, allowing his creativity to flow. He considered marijuana to be a gift.

Medical Cannabis Use For Kids


icon  21 May, 2015  /  icon  3        Author: Support Pot Valet

How Science Is Strengthening The Case For Medical Cannabis Use For Kids

Whilst it has been the argument of those who oppose the use of medicinal marijuana that children could be put in danger, new evidence suggests that this couldn’t be further from the truth. Studies show that the use of Medical Cannabis could actually help treat some illnesses for sick children.

 

How Can The Cannabis Drug Help Sick Children?

Two particularly life altering conditions, Dravet Syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, are childhood epilepsy forms , which although rare still affects thousands of children across America. These illnesses can cause the sufferer to have hundreds of seizures a day, often with dangerous levels of severity. To date, all prescribed medications for the condition have been inadequate in treating the illness. Allowing parents to Buy Medical Marijuana Online however may be the answer.

Thankfully however, it would seem that the FDA are opening their minds to a new kind of treatment for sufferers of these conditions as they have approved a clinical trial for a Medical Cannabis based drug. Epidiolex is a new drug that is uses one of the 85 cannabinoids that are found in marijuana, namely cannabidiol or CBD, which is the drug’s main active ingredient. The FDA approved the trials last year and results so far have been positive. 54% of the patients in the trial had reported that they had had far fewer seizures after just 12 weeks of usage, whilst a further 9% actually said that their seizures had stopped altogether. The success of this study has left the path open for the second stage of the trials, which involves placebo-based methods of testing.

Strengthening The Case For Allowing People ToBuy Medical Marijuana Online

As well as the studies for Epidiolex, research in laboratories is quickly evolving in an effort to unlock the science behind CBD. THC is another of the various cannaboids of weed and has also been used in medicines although, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. One of the industries greatest breakthroughs as a result of research and discovery is the way in which cannaboids are perceived. These days, people are beginning to recognise that cannabinoids are separate entities and that each one has different properties that can be harnessed for different benefits.

Research has now clarified that the cannabidiol cannabinoid is the sole ingredient of cannabis that can provide the best relief for seizure sufferers. The great news is that because this is known, with careful cultivation, special strains of the cannabis drug can be grown to produce higher quantities of CBD, meaning a better effectiveness of the cannabinoid a greater yield. Careful cultivation can mean better safety and piece of mind for those who Buy Medical Marijuana Online

Facts You Didn’t Know About The Cannabis Drug

10 Facts You Didn’t Know About The Cannabis Drug

With so many US states legalizing cannabis in one form or another, it’s becoming much more socially acceptable to talk about the cannabis drug. If you find yourself discussing marijuana frequently with your friends and colleagues, then have a look at these uncommonly known facts about marijuana, so you have something interesting to chat about, next time the subject arises.

Cannabis Drug

1. Cannabis Has Been in Space

A weather balloon holding 95 seeds, a cloned plant and a joint were sent 19 miles up into the air, and there are even stories of NASA spacemen throwing cannabis seeds out into space during a mission.

2. Word Up!

There are estimated to be around 2000 different words that can be used instead of the word ‘cannabis’. Ganja, marijuana, weed and pot are just a handful.

3. Decriminalizing Marijuana Delivery Doesn’t Mean No Arrests

Although marijuana has been decriminalized in many states, there are still many arrests made for cannabis related crimes, with an estimated arrest every 42 seconds. It would appear that despite all the legislation that has been passed, little has actually changed when it comes to the police’s view on the drug.

4. Medical Marijuana No New Invention

It’s quite surprising to know that marijuana has actually been in use since around 2737 BC, with the Emperor of China, Shennong recommending marijuana use to manage a variety of ailments.

5. Modern Medical Marijuana

In 2003, Canada became the first modern country to legalize medical cannabis, with cannabis dispensaries offering the drug to patients with qualifying health complaints.

6. US Cannabis Dispensaries Not New Either

Until 1942, American cannabis dispensaries offered the drug to treat conditions such as rheumatism, nausea and labor pains.

7. Probability of Overdose Very Low

1500 pounds of weed would need to be consumed within just a quarter of an hour to actually overdose on the drug, making it completely safe and impossible to create any fatalities from it’s consumption alone.

8. Even Presidents Have Had a Toke

Rather ironically, presidents have actually admitted or implied that they have used pot for themselves in the past. George W. Bush commented that he wouldn’t answer the questions about cannabis, because he didn’t want youngsters making the mistakes that he did. Obama, has openly admitted that he used cannabis recreationally throughout his youth too.

9. Cannabis Smoothies, Anyone?

In India, a yogurt and cannabis blend of smoothie is sold. Whilst it is reported to taste quite awful, it has some wonderful effects.

10 Beer Hops and Marijuana

Did you know that hops that make beer and cannabis come from the same plant family and people have even tried making marijuana beer due to the similarities with the two plants.

Cannabis Drug Advert Set for Screens

Cannabis Drug Advert Set for Screens

In the month of May, decision-making panels in Texas have been assessing the viability of a new bill that has been proposed to decriminalize marijuana, giving more lenient treatment to those in possession of the drug. To go hand in hand with this, an advert is due to appear on the television sets of thousands of Texans across the state, telling residents just what decriminalization of marijuana would mean for Texas. A marijuana support group who are broadcasting the clip on major channels until the decision is made on bill HB 507 backs the advert. This bill proposes that those carrying less than one ounce of the substance will receive a reduced penalty. Currently, if you are caught in possession of less than two ounces of the cannabis drug, you could face up to a $2000 fine and a jail term of up to 6 months.

Cannabis Drug

New Rules for Recreational Use and Not Just Medical Marijuana

To date, Texas has the second highest arrests for marijuana related crimes, and according to statistics, white people are half as likely to be arrested for possession of cannabis as black people are. The proposed bill was approved last week by the Texas House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence and was initially put forward by state representative Joe Moody. The new bill would apply to those who use Medical Marijuana as well as those who use it for recreational use only.

Russell Jones, who was once a police officer for the State of Texas and a detective for narcotics, narrates the advert, comparing the dangers of alcohol to those of marijuana. This is a common comparison that is drawn when discussing the prospect of legalizing marijuana, which is an interesting debate, as it is a well-known fact that alcohol is attributed to many more violent crimes and accidents than cannabis ever has.

In his narrative, Jones explains “I know of no instance in my entire career where someone was acting out under the influence of marijuana.” He goes on to say that “People under the influence of alcohol are much more problematic. Law enforcement officials have more important things to do with their time than arrest people for marijuana possession.”

Of the 11 bills concerning marijuana that Texas officials have been considering, HB 507 is the one that has made it past the most hurdles so far. Supporters of the legalization of the cannabis drug are excited that Texas lawmakers are finally taking marijuana more seriously and having more of an open mind when it comes to the drug.

New Bill Could Legalize Pot Delivery for Texans

With the outlook on the bill looks promising so far, there is more hope for the bill, as it was only last week that another bill was approved, that would permit the sale and distribution for pot delivery across the state. The bill was approved by a bipartisan House committee, which, if that bill goes further, could mean Texas would be a step towards being the fifth state to allow the recreational use of cannabis.

Promising Cannabis News For Pennsylvania

Promising Cannabis News For Pennsylvania

There has been some great Cannabis news in Pennsylvania this week for the supporters of legalizing marijuana for medicinal use. Senator Mike Folmer submitted Bill 3, which calls to legalize the use of marijuana in the state for medicinal uses. The state senate passed the bill, which would mean legal access to medicinal marijuana services for many citizens who suffer from a multitude of severe health problems. This is an attractive prospect to many who feel that this naturally occurring medication has a bad public image that it doesn’t deserve.

Cannabis news

Enabling Patients to Use A Medical Marijuana Delivery Service

The proposed bill would ultimately ensure that the use of cannabis for medical use is safely and fully regulated. Not everyone would be able to access a medical marijuana delivery service, but instead, the legal use of the drug would be restricted to those who have a valid medical condition that is on the list of approved conditions for use of the drug. The bill would also ensure that the State Board of Medical Cannabis Licensing under the Department of State would be able to oversee the safe use of the drug and appropriately license it.

When the bill was passed on April 21st, the panel voted it in unanimously. It was amended slightly however, with detailed rules that medical cards permitting the use of the drug should be kept up to date to the minute. Those businesses licensed to grow, process and sell the drug for medicinal purposes should also be tracked carefully to ensure that no additional marijuana products could be illegally released from these outlets. Whilst no edible cannabis may be produced, it would be possible for medical cardholders to mix their cannabis into their food or to turn the cannabis into an inhalable steam to make using the drug more manageable for the individual. In addition, the list of allowed medical conditions was amended to add AIDs, HIV and the painful eye condition, glaucoma.

Medical Marijuana Benefits Finally Being Recognized

Senator Folmer expressed his relief following the acceptance of the bill by his colleagues. “This bill has had many individuals working hard to help the broadest group of people we possibly can without further delay,” said Folmer. He was happy that the amendments have been made in favour of the use of the drug and that the list had been expanded to provide relief to a wider group of patients.

The use of marijuana has been legalized, decriminalized or is partially allowed for medicinal use across just under half the number of States in America. Bill 3, which has been brought forward a little more is a step in the right direction to give Pennsylvanians the chance to use medicinal marijuana to treat their various health problems. Finally, it looks as though America is waking up and realising the many medical marijuana benefits that can be provided by the drug.

Medical Marijuana Should be Legalized


icon  11 May, 2015  /  icon  5        Author: Support Pot Valet

77 year old a-list actor Morgan Freeman has expressed his desire to see cannabis legalized ‘across the board’. The actor doesn’t hide the fact that he uses medical marijuana for his own use and has done for a good few years.

Recent moves by some states to partially or fully legalize marijuana have been praised by Freeman who says that he uses the drug for his own personal pain control and acknowledged that he feels that it has many other uses.

Marijuana is beginning to have more understanding in not only the public eye, but also in the medical world too. It’s also a well established fact that alcohol is far more dangerous than marijuana, causing thousands of fatalities each year, whereas marijuana is not known to have ever caused a single fatality.

 

Medical Marijuana Should be Legalized

Not Just Medical Marijuana Benefits Says Freeman

Morgan Freeman suffers from the pain-inducing medical condition, fibromyalgia. There is no known cure for this health ailment, and it causes pain and joint swelling amongst several other symptoms for sufferers, many of whom are prescribed harsh pain medications that can cause further side-effects even though it deals with the pain. Fibromyalgia sufferers like Freeman however can take medicinal Marijuana Pain Relief without the harsh side effects of extreme pain medication.

Even though he has been prescribed many medications, Morgan Freeman claims that Medical Marijuana is the only thing that has ever helped ease the symptoms of his fibromyalgia. He suffers the most pain in his arm and this is Morgan Freeman’s main reasoning behind using the drug. He strongly supports those who believe in legalizing cannabis, although he does not believe it should end at using the drug forthe medical marijuana benefits only. There are many other benefits of marijuana, including the fact that it is safer to use than it’s legal recreational alternative, alcohol.

Marijuana Pain Relief a Clear and Possible Alternative

Marijuana has proven itself in trials on children who have seizure, and studies show that the drug can actually minimise the severity of seizures so that the children do not need to suffer and as such can enjoy being children and live a happier life. The drug has also been successful on multiple occasions in relieving previously untreatable pain in other conditions, showing that Marijuana Pain Relief may be the way forward.

Even though Marijuana has been legalized for medicinal use in California for around 19 years now, industry regulations for it’s safe use have been barred by some governmental groups who won’t back down on their statements that there are no such thing as medical marijuana benefits as such, the federal government still keeps marijuana on the list of schedule 1 dangerous drugs. Whilst Californians can access medical marijuana in Los Angeles for example, elsewhere in America, there are still states that have severe legal implications for those who use the drug for any purpose and we are the best online store dealing in Medical Marijuana Santa Barbara.

Marijuana Laws Removing the Cannabis Dispensary


icon  27 Apr, 2015  /  icon  5        Author: Support Pot Valet

On April 24th, Washington Governor Jay Inslee signed a bill to reform the rules for the use of marijuana, and specifically the cannabis dispensary in a move that is sure to improve the way in which marijuana is regulated across the state.  The proposed bill featured seven aspects that the governor ruled out as he signed the bill, although the majority was kept as it had been originally proposed.

The governor’s decision to sign the bill was not made lightly, however he acknowledged that legalization is the way forward in order to create a more regulated system that is safer for the public and users of the drug, especially those who currently rely on visiting marijuana dispensaries for their health problems.

What Does the Bill Mean For the Cannabis Dispensary?

Rather than using the regular marijuana dispensaries, the bill will mean that from next summer, the sale of medical marijuana will be facilitated via the recreational pot stores that began to be used over the past year.   Some changes will need to be made by the stores if they wish to sell medicinal marijuana, such as stocking certain products and ensuring that staff members are sufficiently trained to be able to advise and sell marijuana for medicinal purposes.

How Can Patients Use Recreational Stores Now Instead of A Marijuana Dispensary?

By joining a patient registry, those who have a doctor’s recommendation to use marijuana to access a marijuana dispensary will be able to purchase more marijuana than they would be able to for recreational use, whilst not needing to pay tax on the product either.  It is hoped that changing the law for both recreational and medicinal uses of marijuana will ensure that the current medical system will finally be regulated better than cannabis dispensaries are at present, bringing it more in line with the current and so far successful implementation of laws for recreational use.

The new bill states that it is up to the medical practitioner as to how much and in what dose marijuana is prescribed to the patient.  Whilst this could mean that patients can now have access to as much treatment as may be necessary for their condition or illness, it would have an alternative consequence, as doctor’s are still regulated by federal laws as well as state laws, and prescribing a substance that is not legal across the country could lead to a doctor losing their license to practice medicine.  To overcome this issue, the governor allowed for small cultivation of the drug by patients for their own use, rather than having crops killed when they are discovered, as was part of the proposed bill.

What Was Omitted From The New Cannabis Dispensary Bill?

Amongst the parts of the bill that the governor decided to rule out of the final bill that he signed was removing the ability for medical centers to prevent their staff from advising for cannabis dispensaries to be used.  It was argued that if all medical professionals are allowed to advise without regulation about the usage of marijuana, then this could lead to the overuse and unnecessary use of the substance, and that the theory behind the suggestion wasn’t exactly well researched at the time of proposition.

Obama backs the use of the Cannabis Drug

4/20 is the unofficial celebration day for the cannabis collective to unite and hold protests to legalize marijuana across the globe.  The evening before, on April 19th 2015, President Obama appeared on a report for CNN news claiming to back the use of medicinal marijuana in support of the controlled usage of it rather than criminalizing all who use the cannabis drug.

Support for the Cannabis Collective

Whilst Obama didn’t quite state that he was behind the complete legalization of the drug, he seemed to be very supportive of backing the bill to legalize it for its medicinal use.

Obama believes that the science behind medicinal marijuana is too strong to ignore and that if patients are professionally and carefully prescribed the use of medicinal marijuana to help with their health issues, then this could be a viable option for at least partially legalizing the cannabis drug.  He said that he believes strongly that it is time that the public and officials stopped looking at marijuana from a criminal perspective, and looked instead at how marijuana could benefit the health and lifestyle of those who live with health problems that marijuana could help to treat.

Although he is a little shy about the subject, this is not the first time that the president has addressed his views on the use of marijuana.  In his youth, Obama has claimed to have used marijuana, and has admitted that he does not believe that it is any more dangerous than alcohol.

Policy Similar to That for Tobacco Could be Used For the Cannabis Drug

Just as guidelines for the safe and responsible use of tobacco, with warnings and public service announcements have helped spread the message of the dangers of the prolonged use of tobacco, Obama suggested that a similar tactic could be used for allowing members of the public to use marijuana safely.  Presently, if someone has an addiction to tobacco and cigarettes, then the government has options for them to help fight the addiction and offer help and support.  Rather than looking at the overuse of the cannabis drug as a criminal matter, offering help and support if it is required to the cannabis collective could be a better option.

The Stance on the Cannabis Drug in America

At present, Colorado has seen a huge financial benefit from the legalization of cannabis, with crime statistics being unaffected, and the taxes coming into the state due to legal cannabis drug sales giving a real boost to the economy.  The District of Columbia, Oregon and the State of Washington have also seen the legalization of the recreational use of the cannabis drug with no adverse problems.

Objection to the Use of the Cannabis Drug Still a Problem

Despite the present success of legalization across parts of America, and the statistics that the use of the drug amongst the cannabis collective is much less deadly than the abuse of alcohol, just this past week, a Californian judge has ruled not to take it off the list of federally recognized dangerous drugs.

People with arthritis can buy marijuana online


icon  20 Apr, 2015  /  icon  6        Author: Support Pot Valet

Arthritis is among those  that people try to cure or at least relieve with marijuana. And given the fact that it affects namely the bones and joints, the option to buy marijuana online seems adequate and applicable.

Why bother visiting a dispensary when you can order marijuana online?

It’s like this – this disease is already too hard to handle let alone going out and visiting a dispensary just to buy what’s necessary to relieve the pain. Many scientific studies have proven and confirmed the pain-relieving effects that cannabis has. The case with Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis is no different.

These are the two most common diseases that affect the musculoskeletal system. They consist in bone deformations that cause quite unpleasant pain to the patients and distort their everyday activities. Simple things like shopping become a rather obnoxious activity and patients with arthritis prefer to limit all sort of movement.

Cannabis is an effective and reliable treatment so expansion of the market is no surprise for anyone: welcome the marijuana online business.

The wave of legalization is literally flooding the world – US States as well as developing countries are discussing the liberalization of either medical marijuana or cannabinoid-based medications. But for the patients the decision is simple – they’ll do whatever is necessary to relieve their pain. In this particular case authorities must consider the financial influx from taxes from dispensaries and also from buying marijuana online. It’s harsh to admit that for some people the health and life of others is measured in bills and coins.

The risk of arthritis is higher for obese people, yet 30% risk while maintaining a healthy weight is just too much.

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 19 million Americans “report limitations because of arthritis”. This number sounds more than disturbing – 19 million only in the USA is just too many people suffering this awful pain. That’s why it’s a bit surprising when you think about marijuana online.

To order marijuana online may sound ridiculous to some just because of the fact that arthritis is closely related to unhealthy weight and sedentary lifestyle. Unfortunately the problem with the skeletal deformations and diseases is that they can’t be cured, just relieved. This briefly means that if it’s already too late to reason “To eat or not to eat that pizza?”, then getting rid of the pain is more than welcome.

To order marijuana online is not only easy but a reliable way to provide the necessary treatment.

We buy food online; we buy clothes and shoes online; why not buy marijuana online then? Once we escape from the social stereotypes of what’s “good” and “bad” for us and go for “what makes us feel better” , only then we can really affirm that health is a top priority for humanity.
