Sick Children Finding Relief with Marijuana

children marijuana

It’s been an eventful week for marijuana updates.  We already discovered another new study that highlights ale cannabis to battle cancer cells. There are also updates on child patients looking for medicinal marijuana.

In Arizona, you will find no age limitations in being approved for legal medicinal marijuana use.  However, you will find strict rules regarding the meaning of cannabis.  Under Arizona law, any combination of created using dried marijuana flowers is suitable.  Jacob and Jennifer Welton’s boy needs medical cannabis.  The boy’s parents crush marijuana into applesauce for him to consume.  Regrettably, after nuclear physics this past year, his capability to eat has bee reduced.  Consequently, the Welton’s are trying to find marijuana extract, which may be given far simpler, sometimes in droplet form.  However, extracts are illegal and Maricopa County attorney, Bill Montgomery has formerly stated patients could be criminally punished for implementing extracts as they do not satisfy the strict meaning of “cannabis” in Arizona.  The Welton’s don’t want to go to the underground community to be able to obtain relief for his or her boy.  “We’re not crooks,” Ms. Welton lately stated.  “We simply want what’s perfect for our boy.”  They are attempting to bring awareness for their situation to be able to alter the strict meaning of marijuana in Arizona.


The Welton’s might find inspiration in the Wilson family in Nj.  Following a lengthy and public fight, which incorporated a plea from John Wilson to Governor Christie in a diner to make certain his daughter didn’t die,  New Jersey congress removed the majority of the obstacles stopping children from being able to access medicinal marijuana. The Wilson’s daughter, Vivian, is affected with an uncommon and debilitating from of epilepsy known as dravet syndrome.  Her seizures are intense and many traditional medications have produced virtually no results.  Limits around the strains allowed available were removed, and today the Wilson’s can buy strains which are effective against epilepsy.  However, food items continue to be unavailable at shops, so Vivian’s parents need to prepare the cannabis and infuse it into food.  Now the Wilson’s were finally in a position to legally buy the medicinal marijuana they require from Compassionate Care Foundation.

The thought of children medicating was but still is taboo in lots of circles.  However, the thought of watching children suffer when treatments can be found has become the growing taboo.  Epilepsy can devastate a child’s quality of existence, and it’s important to supply kids with every opportunity to live a proper and normal existence.

McCain’s Change on Marijuana Helps Him Cope With Otherwise Difficult Town Hall Meeting

Mccain town hall

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) established fact for a lot of reasons.  Besides his service throughout Vietnam and winning the Republican nomination for leader in 2008, town hall conferences will also be famous.  The very long time Senator continues to have conversations using the people directly.  This readiness to have interaction with voters inside a more intimate setting saved a presidential campaign which was basically dead and out if money in early stages from the 2008 election.

A current town hall session made more than ever before head lines.  Senator McCain received an earful from many attending for his support of military action on Syria.  The majority if People in america are against military action with Arizona citizens being exactly the same.  In the event, Mr. McCain guaranteed there’d be not a  “single American boot on the floor.”  Some attending strongly voiced their opinion the promise wasn’t enough to aid military action in Syria.  Senator McCain might have pleased individuals with his take on another problem.  While talking about marijuana he transformed his past tune and individuals in the town hall that “maybe marijuana needs to be legalized.”  Also, he continued to state he respects “the will of those.Inches

Arizona already supervises a medicinal marijuana program.  Despite efforts by Governor Jan Maker to obstruct and halt the Arizona medicinal marijuana program, citizens have supported a contemporary method of marijuana for several years.  Fortunately Senator McCain’s alternation in tone on marijuana might have assisted him pacify some.  The situation highlights how American’s sights have transformed significantly within the last couple of years.   Supporting marijuana legalisation appeared is the positive story from news reviews from the town hall.  The planet is really a different place when supporting marijuana legalisation may have the ability to have an chosen official off the new chair.

Megan McCain, daughter from the Senator has accepted smoking previously and it has voiced support for legalisation.  Perhaps Mr. McCain has gotten some insight from his daughter.  He happens to be referred to as a family guy.  It will likely be interesting to ascertain if the longtime Senator’s change of heart encourages more competitors to complete exactly the same.

Arizona Authorities Lose Another Challenge to State Medical Marijuana Program


Arizona authorities such as Sheriff Joe and Governor Jan Brewer find themselves under the spotlight frequently, though not always in the way they would like.  Arizona is developing quite the reputation for creating divisive law (banning ethnic study classes, requiring police officers to use profiling to seek out illegal immigrants).  Fighting progress tends to be a losing battle

They have also been challenging the will of the people regularly.  In the case of the state’s medical marijuana program, many high profile lawmakers, including Governor Brewer, have tried hard to reverse a law that was passed by a majority of Arizona residents.  The most recent attempt made its way to the Arizona courts.

Last week, Judge Michael Gordon of Maricopa County Superior Court ruled in favor of Arizona’s medical marijuana law.  The case evolved from a dispensary zoning issue into a larger debate of whether or not Arizona’s medical marijuana law is defeated by federal law.  In his decision, Judge Gordon said “This court will not rule that Arizona, having sided with the ever-growing minority of states and having limited it to medical use, has violated public policy.”  He also went on to say “No one can argue that the federal government’s ability to enforce the (Controlled Substances Act) is impaired to the slightest degree.”

To no surprise Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne and Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery have vowed to appeal the ruling.  It seems that certain Arizona lawmakers may not quick learners.  Only days after the decision to uphold the Arizona medical marijuana law, the state’s first dispensary opened in Glendale.  It appears progress is winning.
