It’s Medicinal – Man!

By Staff Reporters

Did you know that in January 2010, New Jersey became the 14th state in the nation to legalize marijuana use for certain chronic illnesses?

Other states where the use of medical marijuana is permitted include Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington; around a dozen more states are weighing pending bills.

Jersey is Toughest State

The New Jersey law is the most restrictive in the nation and authorizes prescribed marijuana for only a handful of chronic illnesses, such as multiple sclerosis, cancer, glaucoma, epilepsy, Crohn’s disease, AIDS, muscular dystrophy and Lou Gehrig’s disease. Unlike other states, physicians in New Jersey will not be able to prescribe medical marijuana for anxiety, headaches, or chronic pain.

Dispensaries

According to reports, the state of New Jersey plans to authorize six dispensaries, and patients will receive identification cards authorizing them to purchase the drug. They will not be able to grow their own marijuana or use it in public, however. And, individuals without a prescription will still be subject to criminal prosecution if caught in possession of marijuana.

Assessment

Do you support the use of medical marijuana? If you are a doctor that lives in a state where medical marijuana is legalized, have you prescribed it to any patients? If you live in a state where medical marijuana is not legalized, do you want it to be? What about you patients, out there?

    PS: Wasn’t pot just decriminalized in Washington DC for medicinal purposes? Any thoughts?

    According to the New York Tines, the Department of Veterans Affairs will formally allow patients treated at its hospitals and clinics to use medical marijuana in states where it is legal, a policy clarification that veterans have sought for several years.

  7. California Pot Stores Must Go!

    Dillon and CC: Federal prosecutors have just launched a crackdown on pot dispensaries in California, warning the stores that they must shut down in 45 days or face criminal charges and confiscation of their property even if they are operating legally under the state’s 15-year-old medical marijuana law.
