The Promising CA Medical Marijuana Market to Receive Expertise from Israelis


icon  19 Dec, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Anne Fred

California continues to make preparations for a time of legal cannabis use and trade. Meanwhile, Israel is notably emerging as a prospective overseas partner in upcoming marijuana-related businesses. Well, it is not the first time California is establishing its laws on marijuana use. The initial measure that allowed the use of medical weed in the state was passed in 1996. Through this bill, medical marijuana patients started to buy marijuana to treat their conditions under the supervision of a licensed medical practitioner. During the 2016 elections, California passed proposition 64 that made recreational marijuana legal. As a result of this victory for marijuana supporters, there seemingly are many partners coming from different parts of the world to help this industry thrive by all means. One of the newest entrants to this weed industry in California is Israel. According to the New York Times, Israel is a known leader in medical studies especially researching into the health benefits of cannabis.

Presently, Israel was reportedly doing a number of clinical trials more than the United States of America. According to one of the Israeli experts, this was a ridiculous thing. As California along with other state jurisdictions, decriminalizing cannabis growing, Israel is going further to expand these efforts overseas. Ideally, there are over 25 states in the U.S. that have legalized weed for medical purposes. Several others have passed laws that allow the recreational growing, processing, transportation, distribution and sale of marijuana. In California, cannabis dispensaries provide marijuana for sale online to licensed medical marijuana patients. Despite these developments, that are 20 years old now since the inception in California, the United States still regards the substance as illegal. Under the federal laws, marijuana is classified as a Schedule 1 substance and this has limited further research on the drug. This is something that shocked the Israelis who were determined to market marijuana at all costs. America has had first-hand experiences of list people who have benefited from medical marijuana. However, the nation is still not relaxed with marijuana laws at the federal level.

The new expansion by Israel is paradoxically being led by the ultra-Orthodox health minister of Israel who is currently lifting any restrictions that had pegged the number of marijuana growers at a minimum of eight throughout the country. Together with the increased awareness of the advantages of the substance, revenue collections by the government are creating some interest to expand medical cannabis growing.  Weed is still illegal in Israel except for anyone who wants it for medical purposes. In that case, medical marijuana delivery services have been stocking cannabis products to sell to those in need of treating chronic health conditions.  All the same, the country is making considerations to use this study edge to market the marijuana product for medical use internationally. Still, there are a number of concerns raised concerning these Israelis: some of their more conventional medical organizations and firms are still reluctant to being part of the party. This was worrisome for marijuana supporters who defined the situation as a lack of knowledge. The police keep worrying about leakage into the black market for recreational weed. On the other hand, some Israelis’ concern revolve around exports should they be allowed, which they say would stigmatize the nation as one that dealt fundamentally in drugs and arms.  All the same, other Israelis are also excited about the potential of the drug as an alternative medicine to many ailing patients.

In California, there is a lot of significant input to agriculture coming from the Israelis. The concept of drip irrigation technologies started by Israel is now being applied in drought-affected areas round the state. At the same time, Israeli entrepreneurs are also taking part in direct farming, specifically of such produce as pistachios that Israelis take in large amounts per capita compared to any other country. The technology from Israel is also being applied in desalination, particularly in a new plant in Carlsbad, which may be the first of many other plants of this kind in the Golden State. Basically, there is a lot of hope for the weed industry in California, seeing that there is a lot of support coming from even outside the borders.

Cannabis need to know: There are over 50 approved Cannabis Permits in Adelanto!


icon  27 Nov, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: Jack

There is high activity on marijuana, currently being experienced in the city Adelanto, in San Bernardino County. These developments form part of the much anticipated reforms that have been taking place in California. For some time now, medical marijuana has been available in various marijuana delivery services. However, each city has had different experiences based on the laws and regulations set. This has led to different growth patterns for the marijuana industry hence affecting patients’ ability to buy marijuana within their regions. The statistics as of now show that Adelanto has already approved 42 permits for medical marijuana alongside 14 cannabis manufacturing permits. The city received a lot of applications and some are awaiting approval while others have either been rejected or withdrawn by those who made the applications. This information was available from documents that were offered by the senior planner of Adelanto.

The 42 approved permits for marijuana cultivation happen to be the first activity by the city of Adelanto for its gradually growing medical marijuana industry. One of the applicants was given a permit along Beaver Road and sought to be given a 5,000 square foot facility. There was yet another on the same location but within the industrial park seeking a 30,000 square feet. There were even others seeking as big as 300,000 square feet according to the city’s documents provided by the city planner.  The permit activity being witnessed in Adelanto supports the narrative that there is a continued interest in the marijuana industry shown through entrepreneurs. Most of them have continued to provide marijuana for sale online whereas others provide cannabis products from local dispensaries within the region. Actually, the city permitted the hiring of a contract planning organization to address the backlog linked with the continued submission of paperwork for the application of marijuana business permits. Adelteo is a prime example of what might happen to the rest of California. With this trend, there will be much improved access to marijuana.

Cannabis Permits Activity in Adelanto
About 50% of the approved permits on marijuana cultivation were given towards the end of 2015. During this time, the ordinance permitting such an activity was very new. Later on, three more applications got approved during the spring. Others were green lit in the period between August and October 2016. The next thing that was authorized by the city council was manufacturing of marijuana products and with this, patients could easily locate a marijuana delivery service providing the same round the city. These permits were granted in between August and September 2016. Most of these entrepreneurs in Adelanto made applications and had been awarded licenses for both manufacturing and cultivation purposes. The cannabis industry in Adelanto was largely boosted by the passage of Measure R, which is a marijuana excise tax of 5% imposed by the city along with Proposition 64 that saw the recreational use of cannabis become legal in California.

Marijuana delivery in California is becoming more and more pronounced and cities like Adelanto are taking the lead in this. Throughout the state of California, buyers have enjoyed the ability to order marijuana online and the reforms don’t seem to end any time soon. More is being unveiled with the dawn of every day. The pace at which Adelanto is growing in its marijuana industry is a sign of what developments are expected in the coming years. Both the entrepreneurs and customers have something to be happy about. This will of course be guided by city’s regulations set to safeguard the interests of all parties in the business. The marijuana industry is a promising sector in Adelanto and has held a lot of hope for the resurgence of the city’s economy. There is evidence at least in the short-term that there will be a return to a well-balanced budget for Adelanto following a long struggle that has been experienced in the past years. The 56 joint permits granted so far are also a representative of a major start from the maiden plans that were initiated in 2015 at a time when the maximum number of proposed permits was limited to five.  This limit was later increased to six before the city officials consequently settled on just giving permits based on the available space in Adelanto’s industrial parks. In that case, the zoning where the cannabis activity was to be conducted, would then determine the number of permits that can be allowed.

In September 2016, the first cultivation and production facility was started by Genex Trading who broke grounds within the limits set by the city. Looking at the manner in which these marijuana permits are issued, there is a lot of optimism for consumers when seeking for help from a marijuana delivery service. Adelanto city will certainly benefit a lot from construction and creating these important structures before making any approvals for marijuana permits. Ideally, marijuana reforms are slowly taking shape in California and Adelanto seems to be among the many cities to watch.

Majority Said Yes to Medical Cannabis in Ohio but the Benefits Are Yet to be Enjoyed


icon  27 Oct, 2016  /  icon  1        Author: Paul

Despite having successfully passed the medical marijuana bill that would see the availability of marijuana for sale to patients, residents in Troy, Ohio are yet to celebrate the win. The matter has been put under a city hearing. However, as it stands today, medical marijuana is now authorized in Ohio. The only opposition is coming from a number of local cities that are appealing towards the decision that was uninanimously passed by the majority of people in the land. The public hearing on medical weed is now taking place at the city of Troy. On October 17, 2016, residents from either side of the issue came out to express their opinions concerning the matter. One of the women in the protests said that weed is a gateway herb and it should be banned in Troy. However, the drug gained support from two other women who believed that marijuana is a necessity.

What Supporters Said
The proponents of the passing of medical marijuana for sale to patients believe that the drug will play a big role in treating some of the conditions they have. On resident of Troy, Aimee Shannon said that life had been difficult for her right from getting out of the bed and having a shower. She believes that marijuana will help her improve on the quality of life she has at present. At 45 years of age now, Shannon has been struggling with physical pain from a tender age of 7 and despite using Vicodin, Oxycontin and a Fentanyl patch, she has never felt good using them. She has been through so many prescriptions, of which she cannot remember some of them and yet the pain has persisted all these years. In order to get the solution that will suffice, she proposed making available, marijuana for sale to patients like her. She alleged that there are quite a number of people suffering and that medical cannabis would help the situation.

In her support for availing marijuana for sale to patients, Shannon said that she doesn’t have a desire to use it for recreational purposes and if that was the case, she would go for the 14 Vicodin prescribed to her. Additionally, she said she is also not interested in being lazy despite having the right to do so due to her condition. The motive behind her pursuit for medical cannabis is to get healed of her condition.

Sentiments from Opponents
Despite all this evidence by Shannon, one Mary Louise Boss turned the motion. Boss was of the opinions that weed will only create a lot more issues and can only be termed as a gateway drug. She believed that for Troy to be safe city, health and full of healing and hope, residents need to stay off the drug. While addressing the council members, her assertions were based on the notion that marijuana was not yet scientifically proven of its medical capabilities. Her biggest worry was the message that will be sent to children on seeing marijuana for sale in dispensaries and how this will influence the rate of crime. At the end, she believed that leaders in the city had a big responsibility to take considering the impact that will come through marijuana.

The Only Hope – The State Passed the Motion
People in problems like Shannon are happy that the State passed it but Troy was interfering with the only hope that they have. She is waiting to get news of marijuana for sale in Troy medical dispensaries. More of the support is coming from reports that show marijuana having been effective in the treatment of various diseases and disorders across America and several other places. Ideally, it has been helpful in the treatment of nausea and pain conditions in the human body. Now that the state has passed marijuana for sale to ailing people, the only remaining bit is for Troy to assent to this decision that has already been made.

Business in the USA gets Tougher with Medical Marijuana: Here is why?


icon  18 Oct, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: David

The fact that 26 states allow the sale of cannabis does not change things for those in the medical marijuana business. This is because the federal law does not in itself allow the sale of marijuana. Even though it does not prosecute those that are licensed by the state, some lawyers, investors and accountants still cannot act against the federal law. This leaves the whole situation even more complicated and tricky. One Pete Kadens, a partner based in Chicago recorded the difficulties that they face when making simple financial transactions. He states that even the most straightforward transactions suddenly become very complicated where medical marijuana is involved. Mr. Kadens is a partner with the Green Thumb Industries which operates two dispensaries and two cannabis cultivation sites in Illinois. He also claimed that it took them four months to open a bank account which normally takes a day.

These complaints have been raised by several dealers and the number is an adequate sample to represent those involved in medical marijuana business. Mr. Tim McGraw who is the founder and president of Downers Grove-based Revolution Enterprises also has his side of the story. He said that all their transactions however minor must be audited by the bank. It is now close to impossible to get a traditional mortgage from a bank. Taxes have become another thorn in the flesh for those doing the weed business. Even though the Federal government has put anti-marijuana laws in place, it has written tax rules to govern those who still sell it. These laws cover all other prohibited drugs. Anyone dealing in such drugs cannot make usual business deductions and this means that taxes go over 50%. Lawyer Hilary Bricken says that the tax situation is not expected to change any time soon.

The medical law in Illinois has been noted to be one of the most restrictive. This is because only forty conditions have been approved for medical marijuana treatment. The main issue is that chronic pain is not among those conditions and this is definitely a big blow. A great percentage of patient bases are made up of those with chronic pains. Consequently, if one doesn’t offer treatment for chronic pain then their client base suffers a great deal. One judge has however ordered that the state should include migraines in the list. Due to lifestyle changes, most people suffer migraines almost daily. Convectional medication has not been very effective in treating this condition. Medical marijuana could be the solution that has been sought for long. Even though Mr. Bricken is practicing towards the cannabis law, his hopes on the situation are not very high.

As at 30th September, the state had only approved 11000 patients to purchase marijuana for medication. This figure was way below the anticipations of the growers and distributers. As it stands, the state seemingly gets more benefits from the medical marijuana business than the growers and distributers. From the growers, the state collects 7% fee and 1% sales tax from the retailers. When businesses apply for cultivation licenses, they each pay a certain amount as application fee. Then out of all the applicants, those who win are again required to pay a permit fee that has to be renewed every year. Those seeking dispensary licenses also go through the same. However, Jack Campbell seems to have a positive view of the situation all together. Being the one who oversees medical marijuana program in Illinois, he says that there is progress. He has urged all to be patient since this is a new program that must take time to be established.

My Funniest Marijuana Delivery Story


icon  20 Aug, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Paul

Delivering marijuana isn’t exactly a job that many people have across America.  With the federal government still keeping strict laws on the use of marijuana, many people, even those in states where marijuana is legal, do not feel that they should order it in case people think badly of them or in case they end up breaking a law.  Because of that, you don’t really see many funny pot delivery stories, so here, I’ll share a funny moment or two with you.

Bush Baby
There was the time I took a pot delivery to a client quite late at night. I didn’t think much of the late night order, after all, I deliver until midnight every day that I work.  This time however, I was not prepared for what happened.

As I approached the address and thought to myself what a nice home it was, I heard a noise from the bushes beside the garden path.  I looked over and to my amazement, there was a man there.  He motioned to me to come over so I did – with some caution.

“Put it over there” he hissed in a loud whisper like he was trying not to draw attention to himself.  I looked over to where he was pointing and I saw a drain chute that was just the right size for the parcel I was holding to fit.  I did as instructed and then he signaled to me to come back.

I went over to him so that he could sign for the delivery and as he was signing, he quietly explained that he was staying over at his mothers, who didn’t approve of marijuana use.  The guy was a frequent visitor at his mother’s home and would stay there for a few days at a time, so when he’d run out of his marijuana edibles, he’d order some more late at night after she’d gone to sleep and wait in the bushes for the delivery so that his mother would never find out.

I was amazed.  Now that was pretty funny.  But it wasn’t the funniest story.  I’m just getting you warmed up.

Don’t Order Pot When You’re Drunk
Whilst many medical marijuana users are sensible about making their orders, we do have the odd one or two that make their order when they’re really drunk, late at night.  There was one time, where one particular customer must have drank the entire liquor store before he ordered with us.

I turned up at his door, around 30 minutes after his order had come through and I confirmed that he was the customer.  He was so drunk he could barely stand.  He looked at me out of one eye, and slurred, “are you the delivery guy?  Where’s my pizza?”

I explained that I wasn’t there with pizza and that I was delivering his marijuana order.

At this point a woman came to the door and apologized for her husband’s state.  She explained that he’d had a little to drink to try to unwind after work and had had a few too many.

That’s when the guy handed me 70 bucks!

I was in shock.  I told him to take the money back and that he’d already paid for his order.  He was quite insistent that I keep my $5 tip.  He kept saying over and over “No, I always tip the delivery guy.  That’s your $5”.

I told him he’d made a mistake and he got a little louder.  He started to explain his math.

“$20 and $20 that’s 2 plus 0 plus 2 plus 0, so $4….” Dramatically grabbing the notes back out of my hand again and waving them in the air.

“$10, $10, $10….” Grabbing the 3 remaining $10 bills out of my hand”

“So this is three.”

“I put these with those, and you’ve got 5 bills there.  So $5.”

Until this point, the guy’s wife had stood there looking a little perplexed and she suddenly looked at me and said, “He’s not going to let you go without taking it.  He thinks he’s some kind of wizard.  Just take the tip and have a good evening”.

To which the guy stuffed the money back into my hand and got pulled back indoors by his wife who had taken the parcel off me whilst her husband was doing his sums.

That was funny.  And it meant that I made the biggest tip that I think I’ve ever made in my life.

Marijuana Legalized States In 2016


icon  01 Aug, 2016  /  icon  3        Author: Paul

Already in 2016, there have been plenty of missions around the country in the fight against legalization of marijuana. So far, there have been over 50 initiatives in place around the United States in an effort to legalize or at least decriminalize the substance for either medical or recreational purposes.

So far, cannabis is legal for both recreational and medical use in Washington State, Oregon, Colorado and Alaska. In Washington DC, it is legal to use for recreational and medical use too but it is not available to purchase.

There are a further 20 states who have opted to legalize marijuana for medical purposes too. These states are:
• Arizona
• California
• Connecticut
• Delaware
• Hawaii
• Illinois
• Maine
• Maryland
• Massachusetts
• Michigan
• Minnesota
• Montana
• Nevada
• New Hampshire
• New Jersey
• New Mexico
• New York
• Pennsylvania
• Rhode Island
• Vermont

Despite so many states choosing to legalize the substance to some degree, these decisions have done nothing to alter the viewpoint of the Federal Government who maintains that using marijuana for any purpose is still a federal offense.

It looks like, over the remainder of the year, an additional 10 states could see pot legalized for recreational use as well as medicinal purposes. This would be a major breakthrough for supporters. There were an additional 7 states that had been in talks about the legalization for recreational use of the drug, but unfortunately, those states missed the deadline or they didn’t make it past the consideration stage. It’s thought that medical marijuana could be allowed in Louisiana, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Tennessee before 2016 is out.

There are big hopes that 2016 will be a successful year for marijuana legalization, especially as it is an election year. According to the Marijuana Policy Project, a group backing six of the states aiming to legalize marijuana, presidential election years encourage more young people to get involved. With more young people thinking about politics and learning more about legislation and other issues, 2016 is likely to be a good year for marijuana legalization.

In addition to the states considering legalizing medical or recreational marijuana, there are also 15 states that have considered decriminalizing marijuana this year. Although 6 of these states have missed their deadlines to put forward a change in this law, this could still mean benefits for those states. It would mean that although the states may not have laws in place for citizens being allowed to use marijuana, people would not be prosecuted for possessing small amounts of the substance or using it. It should be noted however, that although there are 15 states considering decriminalizing marijuana, this does not mean that those states are any closer to legalizing it and are more than likely not even considering it. This makes the possibility of legalization for either medical or recreational purposes a little less hopeful for citizens of those states.

Despite some believing that decriminalization will do very little for those states considering it, some believe that both decriminalization and legalization are both highly advantageous to the state’s economy. Even President Barack Obama has identified the costs that would be saved by the United States if fewer people were incarcerated due to minor cannabis related offenses. Even if marijuana isn’t legalized at all in certain states, simply decriminalizing it could still be enough to make big savings across the US.

In recent months, it’s not only been Liberal Democrats who have been seeing the economical and ethical reasons why prohibiting marijuana isn’t a sensible idea. Even some from the Republican Party have admitted that it is expensive to incarcerate individuals. With more people in the government understanding the cost implications that criminalization has on the country. This could mean a shift in focus from complete prohibition to at least decriminalization.

Although there have been significant changes in the opinions of members of the US government when it comes to marijuana, the marijuana movement has still lost one of it’s main supporters. The chairman of Progressive Insurance, Peter Lewis has donated over $40 million to multiple marijuana campaigns over the years since the 1980s passed away in 2013. Whilst there are still several generous investors stepping forward to try to fill his place, we still don’t yet know if they will be able to offer enough to keep the motion moving forward towards success. Despite three of the main marijuana project groups and 6 deep-pocketed individuals donating as much as possible towards the cause, there still doesn’t seem to be nearly enough money available to fight the federal government.

It would seem that the only thing to do now is to wait for the result of the Presidential Election to find out what the future holds for cannabis within America.

What You Need to Know about Marijuana Delivery Services


icon  30 May, 2016  /  icon  0        Author: Demo Editor

A lot of people do not know this, but yes, it is very possible for you to have your marijuana delivered to your door, just as you would if you ordered a pizza. For people who do not want to leave their homes, or for those who would require marijuana but not need it right away, marijuana delivery services are the perfect solution. It is legal and it is a great alternative to acquiring marijuana, without visiting a dispensary.

There are a lot of questionable people out here that claim that they operate a marijuana delivery service, but one needs to exercise caution when it comes to such things. If you live in an area where marijuana is legal but for medicinal and recreational purposes, then it will be easier to find a delivery service. Next to living in a state where the operation is legal, you need to be of legal age to use the services. If you are using it for medical reasons, you also need to show proof of a doctor’s prescription. Most dispensaries deliver to their registered members so if you are a first time buyer, the process might include you showing a form of photo identification, in addition to the card from your doctor.

Once all of that is setup, you just call up and make a choice from the menu and give them your address and delivery times. There are some delivery services that make same day deliveries based on the time you order, while other do overnight deliveries if you do not have a need for the product immediately. On arrival with the product, be ready to pay either with cash – the preferred form of payment; or a debit card. With the DEA banning credit cards for pot purchases here in the city of California, cash and debit are the only form of acceptable payments.

Once you have gone through the order process for the first time, it becomes easier to use the delivery services over and again as you are in their database and the more times you purchase, the easier it is to just call up and have it delivered right to your doorsteps.

Things to Know About Cannabis Delivery


icon  28 May, 2016  /  icon  2        Author: Demo Editor

Most people are often skeptical when it comes to cannabis delivery. Questions like; when will they deliver it, how much will it cost, are the services reliable and where do I begin are just some of the thoughts that run through people’s minds when contemplating on choosing the cannabis delivery route. One thing to keep in mind though, is that just like any other delivery service you would use if you were ordering pizza or any other food for delivery, cannabis delivery services are fully licensed if they operate in your city, where cannabis for medical purposes is legal.

In order to have a smooth and easy cannabis delivery experience, it is better to use the same delivery service every time you place an order. On the first try, it might be a little bit hectic, because as a new customer, there are a lot of rules to follow, such as; information to fill out, proof of medical marijuana card and payment methods and verification. But once all that information is in the database, it becomes easier over the next couple orders and deliveries.

The cannabis delivery process is easy – place an order ahead of time, be it online or over the phone based on whatever delivery service you’re buying with, and make them aware of when you need it by. The delivery services work to deliver within your estimated delivery time. For some people, they place orders ahead of time so there is no urgency in on-time delivery. Others place last minute and the delivery service work to deliver to them as quickly as possible. On delivery, the driver verifies your credentials and delivers your product to you. At that time the payment is received via cash or debit transaction. For efficiency, cash is usually the suggested method of payment.

It is a very easy process and the more you order from the same delivery service, the easier the transaction is each time.

How to Buy Legal Marijuana Online


icon  27 May, 2016  /  icon  2        Author: Demo Editor

So you’ve made the decision to venture into the medical marijuana scene. Congratulations, it’s a big decision. A decision that requires a lot of research in order to determine what your best options are. When it comes to medical marijuana there are plenty of dispensaries at your disposal. But did you know that you can order your marijuana products and have them delivered to your residence in an hour? Yep, that’s totally possible. And legal.

The Process of Buying Marijuana Online

  1. Like we mentioned before, research is key. Some sites claiming to sell legal cannabis can actually be scamming you. Weedmaps is a great tool to use when looking for a reliable delivery service. The site offers information the many services that offer delivery, as well as ratings from people who have used the service before. Take a look a few to compare their products, service areas, and prices before deciding.
  1. Once you’re done deciding most sites as you to register. Be sure to have your doctor’s recommendation on hand because you’re going to have to upload it to the site in order to complete your order, along with your state-issued ID. As soon as you’re verified the registration process is complete, meaning you are free to order at any given time between the operating hours.
  1. Deciding what to order can be a bit overwhelming. Some sites over popup chats with Budtenders who can answer any questions you may have. If you pick a service that doesn’t have a chat available read through each of the products thoroughly. Know the difference between different strains- sativa, indica, and hybrids. Product selection varies by service but spend time viewing the edibles, concentrates, topicals and prerolls to decide if any of those options appeal to you.
  1. Once you’ve filled your cart you simply enter your number and address and wait for your product to arrive. Most dispensaries operate on a cash only basis because of the struggles to obtain access to a banking system. Some sites offer you location updates while you wait. Others provide you a timeline for when you can expect delivery. Most companies advertise delivery in an hour while others can be expected to arrive as soon as 10 minutes after ordering. You’ll have to show the delivery person your ID for verification, then you’re off with your purchase.

The Future of the Cannabis Industry

Nationwide, pot delivery services have nearly tripled in three years, from 877 to 2,617, according to Weedmaps. It’s easy to see why. Weed on wheels allows patients the advantage of not needing to get out of their homes to obtain medication. Thus, avoiding the stress and, discomfort of manually going into a dispensary. The act of delivery services isvery smooth and can be completed within a matter of a few clicks of a mouse. Marijuana delivery is the future of the cannabis industry, are you ready to leap into the future?

In the Los Angeles area, it is very easy to have weed delivered to you. For starters, the city of Los Angeles and its surrounding areas alone have one of the highest rates of marijuana dispensaries. Most times, these deliveries offer delivery services, so one is very accessible to the services of weed delivery. And with its growing popularity, receiving a weed delivery in Los Angeles is like ordering a pizza and having it delivered within the hour. Even at that, majority of marijuana patients do not know that weed delivery is actually a thing in the city.

Nationwide, pot delivery services have nearly tripled in three years, from 877 to 2,617, according to Weedmaps, which is a Yelp-like online directory for pot businesses.

For example, someone who has never visited a dispensary before does not have to feel uncomfortable visiting a “sketchy” location as it can now be delivered to their front doors.

Also, people who need weed delivered to them and cannot cope with the dispensaries’ hours of operation can also enjoy the 24 hour weed delivery services in Los Angeles. When it comes to weed delivery, it is a hassle-free way of enjoying your products without the stress of finding a dispensary.

Where to Purchase Your Medical Marijuana

Where to Purchase Your Medical Marijuana?


icon  18 May, 2016  /  icon  1        Author: Demo Editor

It is no secret that marijuana as a whole has become increasingly more accepted by the general public, as well as by the courts, in the United States over the past few decades. In fact, in many cases, states all across America have begun to legalize the use of marijuana, if not for recreational purposes, then at least for medical, with the number of states which have legalized the substance in some form or anther reaching 24.

With that said, the more readily available marijuana becomes, the more consumer demand for being able to buy legal marijuana online increases as well. Therefore, various medical marijuana delivery services have begun to crop up all over the nation, offering customers the benefit of being able to buy and consume marijuana, without ever needing to leave the comfort of their homes.

How to Get Medical Marijuana Online

The question then arises however, where can I get medical marijuana and how can I get medical marijuana, including online? The answer to these is fairly simple. First, one needs to be at least eighteen years of age and see a doctor who is licensed to give out “red cards” (i.e. prescriptions which prove the user is afflicted with an illness and/or injury that is treated via medical marijuana).

Then one would need to find a dispensary to buy from — there are plenty of physical dispensaries all over as well as sites (such as WeedMaps), which specifically map out where top rated dispensaries are. However, if one wishes to purchase their marijuana online they will need to do an online search. Also it is important to note that if one does opt for delivery services, they need to make sure it is legal within their city as well as within their state, as various cities prohibit the delivery of cannabis products, regardless of whether it is for medical or recreational use. Lastly, one would need to choose and order the product they desire, then present their red card and ID upon the product’s arrival.

Overall, this really is a relatively easy process to go through, weather you are planning to purchase your marijuana in a dispensary or have it delivered to you via online services. Furthermore, if you are interested in finding out which illnesses/injuries qualify for legal medical marijuana purchase and consumption, there are numerous sites that make this information available to the general public. So if you find yourself in pain and believe marijuana may help you, find a local doctor who will be able to examine you and determine if this is indeed the case, get your red card, and become a part of the cannabis movement today.

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.

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

Research has shown that a substance contained in cannabis can hinder cellular metastasis in a few types of cancer. Related research has as well proven reductions in cellular viability if there is an existence of leukemia cells. The reductions take place at different cellular sequence stages, which signifies that individuals at different phases of the illness may rip off the health benefits. Based on certain records, scientists have utilized substances present in marijuana to exterminate the cancer cellular material, offering relief for leukemia sufferers.

Medical Marijuana in Santa Barbara

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.

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

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

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

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.

$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


icon  02 Jul, 2015  /  icon  0        Author: Support Pot Valet

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

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

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.

Obama backs the use of the Cannabis Drug


icon  22 Apr, 2015  /  icon  9        Author: Support Pot Valet

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.

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.

Marijuana delivery – salvation for two hundred Delawareans


icon  15 Apr, 2015  /  icon  5        Author: Support Pot Valet

Another major hit on the medical marijuana accessibility in Delaware – the opening of First State Compassion Center has been rescheduled for June. This is the second delay that disturbs the treatment of approximately two hundred patients and a reasonable solution might be the marijuana delivery.

Constant troubles for the sick Delawareans since the medical cannabis law was passed in 2011 but marijuana delivery may save the day.

It was first the Governor – Jack Markell who hampered the implementation of the new law under the threat of possible federal intervention. For four years patients were forced to seek alternative sources to relieve their condition. Quite more often than we’d like, these sources were not only illegal, but unreliable and hide many dangers.

Marijuana delivery

Marijuana delivery seems like a good choice since it was announced that Delaware’s first medical dispensary will open doors later than expected. The initially scheduled start was for April, but as a result of electrical issues and seed-growing related difficulties, this date has been changed. Now the 200 registered patients of the state will have to wait until June to purchase their first and legal, Delaware medical marijuana.

Marijuana delivery is not only quicker but also a safe way to provide the patients with treatment.

Since the beginning of the cannabis legalization wave, the number of registered patients in Delaware has tripled. Yet, these people don’t have the necessary access to relief their suffering. Marijuana delivery was a disputable option that raised many questions (mainly concerning regulation) but so far it turns out it works quite well for many patients in other states. While cross-state delivery is forbidden, Delawarean authorities might consider the fact of a temporary solution to the dispensary delay problem.

Many have expressed their concerns about a potential shortage of the medical cannabis. The governor’s spokesman affirmed that supply-related issues won’t occur. Unfortunately, after so many troubles that accompanied the Delawarean medical marijuana legalization, patients just can’t be patient anymore.

According to Health Officials, the current number of people in possess of medical cannabis ID cards is 200. At the same time about 170 more are waiting in line for their applications to be approved. Considering the state law regulations, allowing the cultivation of not more than 150 plants and a reserve of 1,500 ounces, the total number of people who’ll need weed will exceed the ability of supplying.

Despite the relentless efforts of medical cannabis communities, even a marijuana delivery service won’t fix the problems permanently and entirely. More efforts and even more devotion are needed from the authorities in order to meet the needs of patients whose last chance of treatment was delayed again.

Cannabis News: Marijuana for 2016 Election


icon  13 Apr, 2015  /  icon  11        Author: Support Pot Valet

Latest cannabis news shows that the politicians have been discussing marijuana policy. And the marijuana policy will most likely be addressed in the 2016 election, as it is a very hot topic. This means that whether it’s Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton or Scott Walker, marijuana policy will be up for debate. In other cannabis news, both the republicans and democrats have reasons to address marijuana cannabis issues.

Cannabis news: Republicans Talk Marijuana

Marijuana policy gives republicans a chance to distinguish themselves. It is an issue that they need to take a stand on. They have to speak about it. Cannabis is too popular for any politician to avoid. It also helps candidates to make a link with the younger and more liberal voters. While some republicans accept and openly address marijuana policy, some don’t. For some republicans they “just say no.”

Cannabis news: Democrats Talk Marijuana

Democrats find it far less difficult and seamless to talk marijuana policy. Again, like with the republicans, it helps in connecting to the younger audience, the younger voters. It also helps democrats to lead into a discussion about health and family. After all, most cannabis news tell us that cannabis drugs have several medical benefits. This topic also provides another lead in that benefits the democrats. It provides a lead in to criminal justice reform, economic disparities, discrimination and the job implications of marijuana arrests.

Why Cannabis News will Increase

Many states have come on board to legalize marijuana. This list includes states like Washington and Colorado. And they have already started gaining quite a few benefits. In Colorado, the governor’s budget office estimate they will collect $184 million in the first 18-months of recreational pot sales. In the first year alone Colorado earned $53 million in marijuana sales tax revenue. And, more recent reports state that Colorado has made $2.35 million for schools from marijuana sales.

Scientists have learnt that medical marijuana benefits for treatment of various medical issues. And as more states legalize marijuana more research will be done to uncover new uses. Cannabis news talk about some illnesses that marijuana is used to treat, illnesses such as marijuana cancer treatment, marijuana for migraines, marijuana for glaucoma and many more. The benefits of marijuana are quite many. Scientists also say marijuana users are smarter and more open minded. It has also been said that marijuana is less toxic than alcohol and tobacco.

So not only will cannabis drugs help to raise tax incomes in each state, but it will also help persons who need the herb for treatment. Medical marijuana is used for a number of illnesses and diseases. Legalizing marijuana will mean a boost in business for medical marijuana delivery service suppliers and a host of medical advantages that many persons will benefit from.

Marijuana dispensary, Marijuana taken to the federal level as Bill awaits decision in House


icon  10 Apr, 2015  /  icon  18        Author: Support Pot Valet

Marijuana has been the centre of attention recently. And, the federal government has gotten more involved. The positive thing about this effort is that it is bipartisan. It means that both sides are pushing for the law to be passed. This will improve the odds of the bill being passed. This may also affect how long it takes.

The bill is also very likely to be passed because of public opinion. Currently, polls say that 86 per cent of Americans are pro medical marijuana. This is a big advantage for the bill. This will open the doors for the marijuana dispensary businesses and other suppliers in the industry.

The Reason for Support for Medical Marijuana

Medical marijuana benefits are quite a few. Aside from its recreational use, marijuana cannabis has a number of medical advantages. It is used for insomnia, pain relief, asthma, anxiety and many others. There is marijuana cancer treatment, marijuana multiple sclerosis, marijuana AIDs and marijuana HIV treatments. The marijuana dispensary and medical marijuana dispensary industry will increase when legalization is set at a federal level.  They will make it more convenient and accessible for persons who need medical marijuana to treat their illnesses or disease.

Marijuana move from Schedule I to II

Marijuana is currently under the Schedule I category under federal government. Under this category drugs are not recognized for having any medical benefit. However, clearly, this is not the case with cannabis drugs. It has a variety of medical benefits. And, as more research is conducted the current list of benefits may well increase. Being under Schedule II will mean that the medical qualities of marijuana will be officially recognized. Representative Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee and Don Young, R-Alaska, introduced the bill recently that proposes reclassifying marijuana to Schedule II.

The New Bill will Free up Medical Marijuana

Currently, medical marijuana is legal in 23 states. Moving marijuana to Schedule II at the federal level would then allow each state to set the law with regards to medical marijuana. The new bill will also allow a marijuana dispensary, for medical treatment, to use the traditional banking system. This bill will also allow doctors at the Department of Veterans Affairs to recommend medical marijuana to veterans. Cohen spoke fervently about this issue, he said, ” VA Doctors should not be muzzled,” he said. “The idea that veterans who go to war and see life squashed out can’t talk to doctors about marijuana is absurd. It’s crazy.”

The marijuana industry will turn around, but it may take some time. The marijuana dispensary and medical marijuana dispensary business will be opened up for persons to acquire marijuana for medical treatment. And political affiliates will come together to get marijuana mainstreamed.

Irish healthcare Firm Discusses Cannabis Collective for Multiple Sclerosis Patients


icon  08 Apr, 2015  /  icon  11        Author: Support Pot Valet

Like other countries worldwide marijuana cannabis is being legalized in many European Union countries. Unfortunately Ireland is lagging in this regard. Dr. James Linden, the managing director of a Dublin-based research firm called GreenLight Health has been examining the medical marijuana benefits and particularly as it relates to multiple sclerosis patients. 176 years ago Irish Doctor William Brooke O’Shaughnessy lead the initiative in researching the medical benefits of cannabis drugs. Now, Dr. Linden is reigniting this research to help thousands of patients who suffer from multiple sclerosis. A cannabis collective, a place that provides medical marijuana to those who don’t grow or have their own supply, will be a source for multiple sclerosis patients.

Regulations against Pot in Ireland

Unfortunately, cannabis collective facilities are not yet readily available for patients in Ireland. Using marijuana in Ireland could mean a criminal record. Persons could also be required to pay a fine of 2,700 Euros and possible a prison sentence of up to 12 months. Other countries such as United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Austria and France have legalized marijuana cannabis for medical purposes. They have allowed cannabinoid type treatments to be used in their health system. On the other hand, in Ireland, legalization was to have been drafted in 2013 to allow for the selling of medical cannabis, however, it has not gone any further. According to Dr. Linden, it is a grey area on whether he would need a change in the law to produce cannabis medicine in Ireland. He can get a license to grow marijuana for research. However, a cannabis collective and selling it would make that grey area somewhat darker.

Cannabis Collective for Multiple Sclerosis Patients

Though research is continuing to uncover the how medical cannabis can help treat multiple sclerosis patients, according to Dr. Linden “cannabis gives relief from some of the symptoms of MS which are muscle plasticity which helps prevent inflammation and it helps the joints from stiffening.” Dr. Linden also says that cannabis could do more for MS patients, this can only be uncovered through more extensive research. The laws and regulations against marijuana would have to change to make way for this research to take place without any limiting restrictions.

As more research takes place, the benefits marijuana cannabis will more likely increase. Medically we are still only in the early stages of discovering the many medical marijuana benefits. Marijuana treatment is used for other illnesses and diseases such as diabetes, anti-aging, anxiety and there’s even marijuana cancer treatment. Medical dispensary, online medical dispensary and cannabis collective businesses will make cannabis medical treatment more easily available to patients. First the laws will have to make way for cannabis, but in time it will no longer pose a problem.

New Jersey's Christie Admin Scolded for Marijuana Delivery Criticism


icon  06 Apr, 2015  /  icon  6        Author: Support Pot Valet

The New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie, has made some comments about the medical marijuana program in the state that hasn’t been well received. This has displeased lawmakers so much so that they took their sentiments a step further. The lawmakers endorsed a resolution that said the Health Department, under Governor Christie’, put “arbitrary and unnecessary” limitations on the medical marijuana program. The marijuana trade is changing; marijuana delivery, other suppliers and stakeholders are looking forward to the legalization of Pot

Christie Calls it ‘Blood Money’

The lawmakers made that resolution, named the ACR224 a day after Christie’s comment. The Governor condemned the legalization of marijuana that would gain tax revenue; he called it ‘blood money.’ That may be Christie’s opinion, however, tax revenue from marijuana delivery and sales can be used for good in the state. Colorado legalized the cannabis drug for over a year now. The benefits have been quite good for the state. The state gained $53 million in tax revenue from marijuana sales. Also, the governor’s budget office estimate that Colorado will collect $184 million in the first 18-months of pot sales. $40 million to public school construction, $85 million on youth prevention and substance abuse treatment, $12.4 million on public health, $3 million on law enforcement and public safety and almost $2 million on industry oversight, according to money.cnn.com. This just shows how growing the marijuana industry can provide much needed benefits. More recent reports show that Colorado also generated $2.35 million for schools from marijuana sales.

marijuana delivery

More importantly the medical marijuana benefits are plenty. Pot is used to relieve a wide number of illnesses and diseases. There’s marijuana cancer treatment, medical marijuana for migraines and a host of other medical marijuana benefits.

Marijuana Delivery Status in New Jersey

The resolution now says that there are regulations that were passed by the Department of Health that are in opposition to that legislature that was enacted in 2009, this was the Compassionate Use of Medical Marijuana Act of 2009. This was also before Governor Christie took office. That legislature said that marijuana delivery by doctors who prescribed medical marijuana be part of a public database. It also stated that edible marijuana cannabis was prohibited and it could not be delivered to homes. Christie won’t have the chance to refute this resolution because it is not like other resolutions. It is a concurrent resolution. This means that if the Assembly and Senate pass it then the Department of Health will have to abide by what is stated.

With policies like this being pushed from the top marijuana legalization will happen in New Jersey, with any luck it will be sooner than later. Decriminalizing marijuana will only open up the industry to more possibilities.
