Marijuana Dispensary Sues Justice Department, DEA

Posted on  November 01, 2012 by  News Admin

 No Grey Sky, a medical marijuana dispensary in California, has sued the United States Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Administration, claiming that the federal crackdown is an illegal crusade that threatens to prevent thousands of patients from having safe access. The collective and its members are seeking an injunction agains the DoJ, Attorney General Eric Holder, and the DEA, whose agents raided its downtown storefront this month,j reports Matt Reynolds at Courthouse News. No Grey Sky said it has been licensed by the state of California to dispense medicinal cannabis, and that Atty. Gen. Holder is acting "in excess of the government's authority granted by the Controlled Substances Act" by threatening to shut it down. According to No Grey Sky, continuing its business is "vital to the safe and affordable distribution of medical cannabis to patients suffering from chronic and acute pain, life-threatening and severe illnesses, diseases, and injuries." The dispensary said it has complied with all state laws concerning distribution of medical marijuana. No Grey Sky maintains that medical marijuana dispensaries have operated lawfully and "transparently" to offer relief to thousands of patients after voters approved Proposition 215 in 1996, and that Los Angeles established an ordinance to allow providers to distribute medicinal cannabis, according to the federal complaint. The dispensary further avers that marijuana collectives have provided "billions of dollars in revenues." The complaint points out candidate Barack Obama's 2007 promise that dispensaries following state medical marijuana laws would be left alone. But in 2010 L.A....

  Faith leaders call on all Arkansans to support compassionate measure Arkansans for Compassionate Care, the committee behind Issue 5, the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Act, on Tuesday announced a dozen clergy leaders from across the state and from a broad range of denominations have endorsed the measure. The religious coalition was announced at a press conference in Fayetteville, featuring medical professionals and Emily Williams, who used medical marijuana to cope with the side effects of chemotherapy.   "I am proud to be among the faith leaders who have endorsed the use of medical marijuana by seriously ill patients," said Reverend Howard Gordon, minister emeritus at the First Presbyterian Church in Little Rock. "We are compassionate people by nature and Issue 5, at its core, is about compassion. "Arkansans must look beyond the scare tactics used by opponents of the measure and appreciate that there are less fortunate members of society who truly need marijuana to alleviate their suffering," Rev. Gordon said. "One can be opposed to the use of marijuana generally, while accepting that its use by patients, in accordance with a doctor's recommendation, is acceptable," Rev. Gordon said. "I know I do. And I hope the voters of this state will demonstrate their own sense of compassion when they vote."   The endorsing faith leaders listed below signed statements of support containing the following language:  As faith leaders, our position on medical marijuana is driven by compassion. Seriously ill people should not be subject to criminal sanctions for using...

Cannabis Cures Cancer: Look At Me, I'm Cancer Free!

Posted on  October 29, 2012 by  News Admin

  After just a few weeks of ingesting raw cannabis and taking Nternal oil at night, the spider-web-like mass found in my left breast during both a mammogram and subsequent ultra-sound, was nowhere to be found during the first scheduled biopsy.  While there was still a target point for a biopsy, and the oncologist wanted to proceed, I made a deal and bought another month of time. I continued to ingest a green drink made with cannabis in a blender daily, and began ingesting RSO (Rick Simpson Oil), also known as Phoenix Tears, nightly. During the second scheduled biopsy one month later, the "target point" was gone, with the attending physician declaring, "No biopsy needed." Technical Error The attending ultrasound technician (also attending during the first scheduled biopsy) wrote it off as a "technical error" on the part of both the initial mammogram technician and the ultra-sound technician prior. The thing is, as written in the two previous essays, I too saw the spider-web-like mass with my own eyes, peering over both technicians shoulders. I remember saying to the mammogram technician, "Wow, that looks like a spider-web," not having done the research yet, and being unaware of what Lobular Carcinoma looked like.  Sadly, the medical community's hands are tied when it comes to acknowledging cannabis as a cure for cancer. As long as our federal government has it scheduled with heroin, including it in its miserably failed "War On Drugs," how can they?  60 Grams In 90 Days Just after...
