Medical Cannabis and Its Ties to Suicide Prevention

In the immediate aftermath of Robin Williams’ death in August, many people asked why a person so successful and who brought happiness to so many would take his own life. Revelations that he was struggling with Parkinson’s partially answered some of those questions, while also highlighting how much a difference appropriate treatment may make. Medical cannabis may not have averted Robin William’s death, but increasing access to medical cannabis and enhanced understanding of the breadth of its potential efficacy as a treatment for numerous diseases or conditions – including Parkinson’s – has helped many people carry on who might otherwise have done…

Michigan: Medical Marijuana Patients Can Collect Unemployment

Michigan workers who use medical marijuana are eligible for unemployment benefits in the event they are fired for failing a drug test, according to a recent verdict by a state court of appeals. Last Friday, a panel of judges upheld the decisions of three separate cases in which workers were terminated from their positions solely because they violated workplace drug polices with the use of medical marijuana. The court found that the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act superseded the Michigan Employment Security Act, and therefore protects working medical marijuana patients from being withheld unemployment benefits. “The plain language of the MMMA’s immunity clause states that…

Marijuana and Ebola

We know marijuana is an effective treatment for a number of serious conditions, including cancer and epilepsy, but does the medicinal herb have the power to cure the latest threat to the America population: the Ebola virus? A number of news stories went viral last week persuading the average citizen into believing thatsmoking weed has the capacity to snuff out the nasty little bug that some US health officials believe could cause a full-blown pandemic. Unfortunately, despite optimistic suggestions by former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, who recently told Fox News that his company, Cannabis Sativa Inc., believes that marijuana could be effective in treating…

AA Founder Believed LSD Could Cure Alcoholism

The majority of the alcoholics who attend AA meetings associate every inebriating substance with their alcoholism, and the fear that their effects may trigger a relapse. What most of them do not realize is that the program’s co-founder, Bill Wilson, credited the psychedelic drug LSD for alleviating his alcoholism, and believed the drug could be used to treat others as well. This interesting trip begins just about two decades after Wilson established Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935, according Don Lattin, author of the new book Distilled Spirits. It was then that Wilson began preaching his belief in the use of LSD to assist…

Study: Medical Marijuana Works for 92 Percent of Patients

There are naysayers who believe the concept of medical marijuana is really just an elaborate scheme intended to move cannabis into the American mainstream, with people like former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg calling it “one of the greatest hoaxes of all time.” However, a new survey released this week by the Public Health Institute finds the majority of medical marijuana patients in California — 92 percent — agree that the herb has been beneficial in calming the symptoms of their suffering from conditions like cancer, chronic pain and migraine headaches. The latest statistics, which were produced under the thumb of the…

Colorado Releases New Cannabis Regulations for Both Medical and Retail

On September 24, the Colorado state Marijuana Enforcement Division, or MED, released a set of 30 new rules for both medical dispensaries and retail stores. The rules cover everything from licensing fees, edibles, cultivation, and employee training (including hand washing – good call!). We recently reported on a proposed stipulation that would have placed a production cap on greenhouse grows, which caused an uproar and many an impassioned protest among smaller, less commercialized grow operations. The new rules do not make such a production cap,allowing the same number of plants (3,600) for warehouse and indoor or greenhouse grows. The new rules establish “responsible vendor training” as well as safety precautions when…

Angela Brown Treats Son’s Head Injury With Cannabis Oil: ‘He Was In So Much Pain’


A mom desperate to ease the constant pain her son suffers because of a traumatic brain injury, faces criminal charges for treating him with medical cannabis oil. Angela Brown, 38, of Madison, Minnesota, has been charged with possession of a controlled illegal substance and child endangerment. A conviction on both counts could result in up to two years in prison and a $6,000 fine. Authorities say Brown was administering cannabis oil to her 15-year-old son, Trey Brown. The teenager suffers from an injury he sustained in April 2011, when he was struck in the head with a line drive while…

New Mexico: Medical Marijuana OK’d for Workers’ Comp

Physician prescribed medical marijuana for pain relief is covered under the bylaws of workers’ compensation, according to the latest ruling from the New Mexico Court of Appeals.  Although cannabis is still considered an illegal substance by the powers of the federal government, the court handed down a verdict earlier this week mandating that Gregory Vialpando, who recently sustained a devastating back injury while at work, should be reimbursed for the medical marijuana he used for pain following a botched spinal surgery. The ruling finds that Vialpando’s use of medical marijuana under the recommendation of a physician qualifies as reasonable and…

OC Man’s Pot Sale Conviction Overturned In Groundbreaking Court Ruling

The California Court of Appeal appears to have just handed a major victory to medical marijuana dispensaries that follow state law. Until now, dispensary operators targeted by police have faced the prospect of trying to defend themselves in court without being allowed to argue a so-called affirmative defense citing protection under California’s medical marijuana law. Now, thanks an appeals court ruling that involves a Newport Beach marijuana collective operator convicted of possessing pot with the intent to sell, prosecutors might have a much harder time winning convictions in cases where collectives have followed state law. The case in question involves…
