Florida Progress

In the very near future, Floridians will get the opportunity to decide on a proposed constitutional amendment seeking to permit the physician-authorized use and distribution of cannabis for therapeutic purposes in their state. The aforementioned ballot measure, entitled the “Use of Marijuana for Debilitating Conditions,” will appear before Florida voters as Amendment 2 this November.

Proponents of the measure, United for Care, were able to collect 709,359 as of February 1st 2016. This figure trumps the required number of 683,000 signatures to position the measure on the November ballot, the Florida Division of Elections has confirmed.

The passage of this amendment would permit qualified patients to possess and obtain cannabis from state-licensed facilities. According to a November poll, 62 percent of Florida voters say that they support the passage of the amendment; although according to Florida law, 60 percent of voters must approve a constitutional amendment in order for it to become law.

This thin margin of approval lingers on the horizon, while the previous November 2014 ballot saw Floridians narrowly reject a similar amendment; receiving 57.6 percent of the necessary 60 percent vote. Only time will tell, but our fingers are crossed for the approval of safe access to cannabis for Floridians in 2016!

Veterans need MMJ Access

Written by: Kayleigh Dinsdale

Marijuana prohibition is coming to an end as medical and recreational legalization takes over the country. However some patients have been repeatedly overlooked for far too long: our nation’s veterans. No one denies these citizens should have access to medicine to aid their illnesses developed before or after their service. Every state has a different list for qualifying conditions, some accepting mental and physical illnesses. Many organizations relentlessly urge Health Boards and lawmakers to acknowledge the benefits. Some studies have even shown a few marijuana strains have been shown to reduce many symptoms that are common for PTSD and many like disorders. It’s time to get veterans their deserved medicine.

The Department of Veterans Affairs proposed the Veterans Equal Access Act to Congress on November 19. The passing of this bill would permit the Department of Veterans Affairs doctors to write their patients a recommendation for medical marijuana use for qualifying conditions. This would apply to all states with legal medical marijuana, hopefully adding to the ten states that offer cannabis for mental health issues.

Dr. Sue Sisley was recently fired from the University of Arizona this summer who was unjustifiably fired from her position, which she believes was a political move. After her studies abruptly stopped upon losing her position, in response the Colorado health department was one of a few organizations who granted Dr. Sisley a total of $7.6 million to continue her research on benefits marijuana had to treat PTSD. Out of the troops who make it home, around 30 percent have PTSD, with many suicides linked to lack of acknowledging the issue and not seeking help.

Veterans come home and deal with a myriad of varying health issues including depression, traumatic brain injury, painful flashbacks, nightmares, emotional distance, memory problems and sleep apnea. While the use of medical marijuana is not easily accessible, patients find other coping mechanisms, one of which is substance abuse. The cannabis plant has been shown to cure up to 75 percent of PTSD symptoms, making life enjoyable again for patients.

Of the long list of medical cannabis strains, a few have been singled out as the most effective. Pot of Gold, the Pure OG and LA Confidential are all strains that specifically treat symptoms like appetite loss, stress, pain and depression, completely relaxing the patient.

This industry is still growing as more conditions qualify for the use of medical marijuana, leaving some niches hardly touched. Those who need medicine–yet lack an influential voice to fight for it–need the voices of other people in the industry to support them. Conventions, marketing and rallying all play a huge part in the end of prohibition.  Our veterans have been overlooked for far too long; it’s time to popularize the medicine needed to heal our veterans.

Baltimore Sun Attends CCI’s Baltimore Class

Doug Porter’s cannabis-motif shirt is a dead giveaway, as are the terms he uses in his business lecture, such as weed and buzz.

On Saturday, Porter helped lead a how-to session for launching a marijuana business. The California-based Cannabis Career Institute offered the daylong seminar at a BWI Marshall Airport hotel less than a week after D.C. residents voted to legalize marijuana.

Maryland lawmakers earlier this year decriminalized possessing small amounts of marijuana and previously approved its medical use.

CCI officials say the measures mean that an industry growing nationwide could mushroom in the Baltimore-Washington area in years to come. Porter, 52, implored the class of a dozen people to use a model not unlike that of any other small business.

Offering a blueprint that included a business plan, an action team and a demographic analysis, Porter demonstrated how to launch a medical marijuana dispensary, marijuana plantation and delivery services.

Led by Doug Porter, the seminar offers a business model similar to one needed for any other small business that includes a business plan, an action team and a demographic analysis. His courses demonstrate how to launch a medical marijuana dispensary, marijuana plantation and delivery services.

“This business is coming out of the dark and into the light,” Porter tells the Baltimore Sun. “It is really an opportunity for anybody from all walks of life. Besides what we know about dispensary owners, the delivery service drivers and the growers, there are a lot of ancillary jobs that come as a result of this.
