Danforth clinic plans to be first marijuana storefront dispensary

Toronto’s Danforth neighbourhood has it all: restaurants, grocery stores, culture, and soon, a marijuana dispensary — if Sam Mellace has his way. The medical marijuana user and activist is opening the New Age Medical Clinic near Danforth and Pape Aves. on Wednesday with an eye toward a Health Canada policy change that would allow him to sell the pot he grows directly to medical marijuana consumers. His move comes at a time when the country is reconsidering how it supplies marijuana. A new policy is in the final stages of development, and Health Canada plans to begin rolling it out…

Medical Marijuana Is Safe for Children

                    The courage and fortitude of parents who have chosen cannabis compounds to treat their children facing life-threatening illness have raised eyebrows. Some live in terror that their government will take their child away, since medical marijuana is only legal in some states. However, there are numerous cases demonstrating the benefits of clinical cannabis, which happen to threaten a very profitable healthcare industry that relies on conventional drugs, as well as political agendas. The cannabinoid acids in cannabis have been found to have anti-proliferative, anti-neoplastic, anti-inflammatory, anti-epileptic, anti-ischemic, anti-diabetic, anti-psychotic, anti-nausea,…

Marijuana-Flavored Mayonnaise: Coming Soon To A Dutch Fast Food Chain Near You

                      A chain of Dutch fast-food restaurants is about to roll out a new condiment that is certain to appeal to stoned college students everywhere: Cannabis-flavored mayonnaise. As Americans know from that famous scene in Pulp Fiction, mayonnaise is the condiment of choice to accompany french fries in parts of Europe, and Manneken Pis — a chain of eateries named after a famous resident of Belgium — is one of Amsterdam’s most popular spots for friet. But before eager backpackers hear “Amsterdam” and “marijuana” together in the same sentence and jump to conclusions, be warned that the recipe…

Celebrating Marijuana In The Open

Today, April 20, is “420: International Marijuana Day.” Festivals and marches are planned around the world. The number 420 reflects the date, but it also represents the term’s clandestine origin in the 1970s, brought about by laws that still plague cannabis consumers today. In 1971, a group of high school friends, the “Waldos,” invented 420 as a code word for smoking pot. Referring to 4:20 p.m. after school, the friends from San Rafael, California, would meet to smoke marijuana in their secret spot next to a wall — the origin of their nickname. In the 40 years since, 420 has…

Thousands of marijuana smokers celebrate first legal ‘420’ in Colorado

UPDATE 7:07 pm CT: In the minutes after the shooting, three individuals were shot by an unknown assailant. None of the injuries were described as life-threatening. Approximately seven gunshots were heard shortly before 5pm, less than an hour after the rally’s keynote address completed. It was initially reported that two people had been shot, along with one of the individual’s pet dog. However, the Denver Police Department tweeted that a third individual, a juvenile, was grazed by a bullet and escorted themselves to nearby hospital. ***** DENVER, CO. – Ten years ago, Ken Gorman, the founder of Denver’s annual “420 Rally,” stood inside…

Moderate Marijuana Use Does Not Impair Lung Function, Study Finds

                    A large new government study has found that smoking marijuana on a regular basis, even over several years, does not impair lung function. Marijuana, the country’s most widely used illicit drug, has become increasingly popular and less stigmatized in recent years, particularly among young adults. One government report released in December found that one out of 15 high school students now smokes marijuana nearly every day, a growth fueled in part by the spread of medicinal marijuana, which is legal in 16 states. With its use rising, questions about the…

Marijuana goes legal in Washington state amid mixed messages

                      Hundreds of marijuana enthusiasts huddled near Seattle’s famed Space Needle tower on Thursday night with pipes, bongs and hand-rolled joints to celebrate Washington’s new status as the first state in the nation to legalize pot for adult recreational use. The public gathering at the downtown Seattle Center, like a smaller turnout at a nearby spot hours earlier, defied a key provision of the state’s landmark marijuana law, which allows possession of small amounts of cannabis but forbids users from lighting up outside the privacy of their homes. Police kept…

Maryland Medical Marijuana Bill One Step Closer to Becoming Law

On Monday, the Maryland House of Representatives passed a bill to legalize medically approved marijuana use in the state by a margin of 108 votes to 28. It will now proceed to the Senate where it will be debated and voted on, possibly as soon as this week. If passed, House Bill 1101, sponsored by delegate Dan K. Morhaim among others, would establish a medical marijuana commission in the state through which academic and medical research centers could submit applications to operate medical marijuana dispensaries. It was proposed on February 8. The bill would not take affect until fiscal year…

Group Of Illinois Doctors Backs Medical Marijuana Legislation

CHICAGO (CBS) – Illinois lawmakers could vote on legislation to legalize medical marijuana this week, and a group of 250 doctors has urged them to support the measure. WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports the physicians have signed on as members of the “Marijuana Policy Project.” Dr. Burak Emin Gezen, of Chicago, was among the doctors who have signed on to support medical marijuana legislation that would establish a pilot program to legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes by patients with serious illnesses. “They can be effective for pain. For some patients the … adjuncts that we have…

The Advantages of Legalizing Marijuana

The issue of legalizing marijuana is a hot topic these days, mainly because of the noise being created by the lobbyists who are clamoring for legislation that will decriminalize the possession and the use of the substance. Not everyone, however, is aware as to why there is a need for such legislation. That is because for many of us, marijuana is nothing more than a weed – a dangerous weed that gets people high, inhibits their ability to think clearly, messes up with their psycho motor functions, and generally gets them into harm’s way. The harm that marijuana poses has…
