NORML Partners With The Family Law And Cannabis Alliance

By Sabrina Fendrick, Director of Women’s Outreach It’s no secret that there has been a proliferation government agencies across the country removing minors and infants from their home, based solely on the fact that a parent is a cannabis consumer, and the false presumption that the presence of marijuana poses a danger.  This even occurs in states with a legal medical marijuana program, or where marijuana possession is no longer a criminal offense.  Some of these experiences can be incredibly traumatic to the child, as well as the parents, as officers have [...]

Police Dog Bites Fifth Grader During Mock Classroom Drug Raid

I just read a very disturbing story out of Indiana. It appears that a fifth grade boy was bitten by a police dog while the police were conducting a mock classroom drug raid. Does anyone else find it ridiculous that fifth graders were used to show how a K-9 officer can find drugs? Even if a kid didn’t get bitten, this is ridiculous. The fact that an innocent kid was bitten in the process is just sad. According to the Brazil Times: According to the report, the officer and his K-9 [...]

What Is The Best Medical Marijuana Clinic In Oregon?

I was a medical marijuana patient in the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) for five years, but had to let my enrollment lapse once the fees were doubled. Being a medical marijuana patient in Oregon isn’t cheap. First there are costs to visit a primary doctor. Then there are costs associated with the medical marijuana clinic (assuming your primary doctor won’t sign the forms). Then there are fees for applying to the OMMP. When all is said and done it costs hundreds of dollars. Choosing the right medical marijuana clinic [...]

Doctors Should Determine Medical Marijuana Eligibility, Not Politicians

Per the Florida medical marijuana campaign, United for Care: Florida AG Pam Bondi doesn’t think doctors should decide what a “debilitating disease” is. Then who should? In her filing to the state Supreme Court, Bondi actually complains that it will be a physician that will make the determination that someone has a debilitating condition.  She also seems to believe that the state – not your doctor – should define what diseases or conditions are debilitating, and what are not. Does that make any sense whatsoever? It seems pretty clear that physicians are [...]
