Carly Fiorina Shortchanges Marijuana Research

In questioning the value of medicinal marijuana, Carly Fiorina said “we don’t understand how it interacts with other drugs.” In fact, there is information about marijuana’s interactions with other medications, although major clinical trials using marijuana have been limited by its legal status. Fiorina spoke with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, who asked her about the legal status of marijuana in Colorado (it also has been legalized in Washington). She said she believes in states’ rights but that legalizing marijuana is a “bad idea” (at the 30:20 mark): Fiorina, June 25: I remember when I had cancer, my doctor asked me if…

Obama Commutes 2 Marijuana Sentences And 44 Other Drug Offenders

President Obama commuted the sentences of 46 non-violent drug offenders on Monday, two of which were for marijuana. The president said the 46 prisoners had served sentences disproportionate to their crimes. “These men and women were not hardened criminals, but the overwhelming majority had been sentenced to at least 20 years,” he said. “I believe that at its heart, America is a nation of second chances. And I believe these folks deserve their second chance.” According to the Washington Post, Monday’s commutations mark the most in a single day since the administration of President Lyndon B. Johnson. Obama now has…

Marijuana is legal in Oregon — to possess and grow, but not to buy

As of today, if you are 21 or older, you can legally possess and grow cannabis in Oregon. That’s right, a pretty historic day. » Hundreds celebrate marijuana’s new legal status in Oregon If you want to mark the day by buying some pot to consume, you’re out of luck. For now, people can only share or give away marijuana and starter plants so you’ll have to hit up a generous friend, though a bill allowing recreational marijuana sales at dispensaries in the fall is making its way through the Oregon Legislature. Medical marijuana patients, meanwhile, can continue to purchase cannabis at…

The Actual Benefit of Medical Marijuana: What Does the Research Indicate?

Earlier this week the Obama administration reduced some severe restrictions on cannabis research, allowing for much more freedom to study the extent of marijuana’s medicinal benefits. This news comes at a crucial time in our country where more states are exploring the possibility of legalizing access to medical marijuana but are unsure of how much relief medicinal cannabis can bring to patients. Researchers have been trying to determine for decades which diseases, symptoms, and conditions can cannabis help alleviate, and while more studies will more definitively answer that question, past research is suggesting that medical marijuana can help with some conditions…

Maine Could Legalize Children’s Use of Medical Marijuana in Schools

A remarkable breakthrough for medical marijuana patient rights just passed a hurdle in Maine, a state with one of the most progressive medical marijuana programs in the country. Their latest move comes in the form of an unprecedented bill that has not been introduced in any other state yet. Legislative Document 557 is a bill to allow children to take prescribed medical marijuana on school grounds if a parent or guardian comes to the school to administer the medication. This approach will allow children to attend school who otherwise might be too ill. It also removes liability from school nurses and…

Lawmakers in Maine See Marijuana Legalization as Inevitable

In 1999, the voters in Maine approved the state’s first medical marijuana bill with a lopsided 61% approval. A decade later, the law was improved upon to allow for storefront dispensaries and to broaden the list of acceptable medical conditions that marijuana could be recommended for. In 2011, the law was built upon once again, protecting patients’ rights by making many registration processes optional. In November of 2013 Portland, Oregon became the first city on the east coast to legalize recreational marijuana use for adults over the age of 21. In November of this year, the city of South Portland became…

How Much Does Colorado vs. Washington Recreational Marijuana Cost These Days?

Good news for the cannabis enthusiast: no matter the state, retail marijuana prices are expected to drop in Washington and Colorado throughout the rest of the year. While the black market still poses imminent competition barriers, the wake of 4/20 emphasized the importance of competitive pricing for all recreational stores. Both Colorado and Washington’s recreational markets have shown significant price drops since the opening of the country’s first legal pot-stores – a simple story of supply and demand. As expected, more retail stores spike competition in the market and force store owners to scale pricing. But what does retail marijuana actually cost…

Alaska Sets Up New Marijuana Board

The Alaska Legislature has decided to assign the difficult job of writing new regulations for recreational marijuana to a newly created supervisory board. In February, Gov. Bill Walker asked lawmakers to set up a Marijuana Control Board to oversee the recreational cannabis industry, and this past weekend the state House and Senate obliged. Both chambers concurred on Walker’s requested bill, allocating $1.5 million to fund the new board, according to KTOO Public Media. The governing board will have five members, including representatives from the industry as well as from the public health and safety sectors and rural Alaska. Board members…
