Pharmacy Group Announces Formation Of Medical Marijuana Task Force


pharmacy group task force medical marijuanaIt looks like a nightmare for many medical marijuana advocates is coming true. A pharmacy group apparently wants to explore the pharmaceutical management of medical marijuana. According to the National Association of Specialty Pharmacy:

NASP’s Professional Practice Committee will oversee a group of volunteers, representing all major stakeholder areas, to discuss the issue and provide a framework for future educational content, practice parameters or other standards of care, that serve the goal of improving patient care and equipping specialty pharmacists with the knowledge needed.

Once formed, the taskforce will develop a project framework and determine key areas of integration with current specialty prescription therapy for patients with chronic diseases.

“Essentially patients receive treatment from dispensaries, outside of their pharmaceutical regiment management, and we believe that a drug with such a broad scope should be managed effectively through the Specialty Pharmacist to ensure patient education and proper dispensing,” Cohen said.

I think all of us knew this day would come. I personally don’t want to see the pharmaceutical industry have anything to do with medical marijuana. Most people use medical marijuana to replace pharmaceutical drugs, and there’s a good reason for that. Chemists and profiteers don’t care about side effects and other negative things that go along with their pharmaceutical drugs. I’m also not a fan of corporate America, and big pharma will no doubt try to monopolize the medical marijuana industry, which isn’t good for anyone. How do you feel about this? I look forward to reading your comments.

    Keep their greedy, frankenstein making(hybrids), filthy corporate hands off of a natural remedy, like marijuana. We dont need them to ruin and regulate our medicines. The prices would absolutely double as soon as they gained control of the market for inferior product. It grows free, let us grow our own. We will lose that right if the corporate pigs gain control.

    Thanks for that, but what I meant was a picture of mold and bugs on the plant… :)

  • painkills2

    Maybe post a picture of what I’m looking for?

  • Charles Waller

    If smoking is an issue, get the vap first and a good magnifying glass. Use in bright light.

  • painkills2

    What should I buy first, a vaporizer (on my wish list) or a magnifier (a potential wish-list item)?

  • painkills2

    Sativex will be competing with all other “oral” cannabis and it will only be successful in very niche markets (as medical cannabis tinctures are now). I assume the product will also be competing against ALL other cannabis products on the black market (you know, until legalization).

  • Charles Waller

    Buy a lighted magnifier, 35X power at least, to check for mold & contaminants.

    Until the unalienable human right to cultivate any plant on private property for personal use is acknowledged prohibition continues to violate those rights which are guaranteed by the Constitution & the Bill of Rights. GW Pharma has already demonstrated the course of “Big Pharma” in regards to cannabis, by adding alcohol and propylene glycol to extract oil in order to market Sativex in an oral spray form and guarantee shelf life. Contamination is counterindicated in medicinal formulation.

    Thanks Johnny for the post. I have my doubts about this group but I know very little about them. Looks like all they want is a piece of the action. I too am no fan of big pharma or big corporations invading the MMJ business. Only thing is if I want to help as many as possible with a collective, I would have to incorporate. Fucked If I do, real fucked if I don’t. The barriers are huge, but with enough money possible. For instance, $250.000 as min. capital and $20k for the license per NV’s new statues. That just start up costs. Inventory, rent, rent for the grow (70% must be grown by the collective), and everything else that goes into a new business. We need help from big money so they will have get their cut unfortunately. Here in CA the barriers are less but you have a risk that the feds will come for you. thanks again!

    You pathetic loser. How many email addresses are you going to burn with this scam. I count 2 so far. From what I can see your scam is going to end very soon.

  • painkills2

    Yeah, but how do we do that?

  • katewhite

    I use marijuana medically because I became addicted to BIG PHARM’S opiate pain killers and it basically destroyed my entire life. My children were taken, I was institutionalized, I lost three years of my life. Marijuana has been like a gift from god for the seven hard years I’ve stayed sober. I’ve had five surgeries all without any opiate or narcotic pain meds, my most recent was two days ago I had my gallbladder removed band some repair work done to my intestines. I’ve only needed to use my marijuana for the little pain relief that was needed. Plz keep Big Pharm out of the medical marijuana collectives!!


    FUCK OFF AND DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
