Medical Marijuana in Ohio

As September begins, Ohio’s newly formed medical marijuana program continues to be plagued by various delays and failures. As a direct result, our state’s patients, who are in dire need of the treatment cannabis provides, will have to wait even longer for the legal relief they require. On July 31, Buckeye Relief in Eastlake planted the first legal seeds, a momentous day only made possible because the cultivating facility finally received its certificate of operation from the state four days before. The state’s department of commerce can only give up to 12 of these certifications before the September 8 deadline, with potentially more on the way. Buckeye Relief is one of only three growers in the state that has been given the go ahead to start planting, with five more supposedly being allowed to start soon. 

Eventually, only 26 licensed growers will be allowed to operate in the entire state. In addition to this already restrictive situation, the state had as many as 104 applications for processing center licenses, which again are necessary for transforming the crops into consumable products, but only 13 have been approved so far – and the state only intends on approving 40. On top of all of this, only 222 doctors have been given the authority to prescribe the drug, which requires a certain amount of training, and even then, there are only 21 medical conditions for which the state allows the drug to be prescribed. Bob Bridges, who sits on the state’s Medical Marijuana Advisory Committee as an advocate for patients, says the registry should be live now, because it would give growers and processors a better estimate of how many patients are looking to consume products. While many of the failed applicants in the various realms of Ohio’s faulty medical marijuana program have chances to re-apply later on down the line, it’s no mystery as to why some of the cannabis entrepreneurs here in the Buckeye State are even contemplating legal action. 

The federal government has recognized up to 150 qualifying medical conditions for which cannabis can be at least researched, and those scientific studies have since found that marijuana can be used to treat up to 400 various medical conditions. At the end of the day, with so many different people understanding the various benefits of unrestricted medical marijuana utilization – from patients to scientists to journalists – it’s high time that Ohio’s state officials do the same.

How the Legal Marijuana Industry Is Helping Grow []

Comedians like Doug Benson and Stephen Colbert have been getting a lot of joke-mileage out of Colorado’s legalization of marijuana last January. The name is derived from Khalatbari’s chain of pizza restaurants, Sexy Pizza, one of which hosted the first Sexpot Comedy show early last year. The show has since grown and splintered into several regular events, hosted at different comedy clubs and music venues around town under the Sexpot banner. For years Denver has been a known destination for touring comics; the thirty-year-old Comedy Works has been proclaimed by performers like Dave Chappelle and Dave Attell as their favorite comedy club. Last summer, Juett and comedian Adam Cayton-Holland produced Denver’s first large-scale comedy festival, The High Plains Comedy Festival, which was headlined by Reggie Watts and ended up being a sold-out success. 

It was Kayvan Khalatbari’s marijuana dispensary, Denver Relief, that initially sponsored several different comedy shows and podcasts around town, back when Sexpot was just a witty pun being tossed around. While this continues in some arenas, the Sexpot Comedy shows have been gaining a lucrative momentum of their own, in part thanks to Juett’s utilization of the local comedy radio station for marketing, as well as the throbbing enthusiasm coming from Colorado’s energized marijuana scene. There’s no getting around the fact that some cannabis consumption goes on at Sexpot shows, whether through edibles, vaporizers or straight-up smoldering joints. While some Denver comedians don’t care for a stoned audience Andy Juett – who himself has acted in many sketch videos and recently began performing standup – says that there are upsides to playing for a red-eyed crowd. Khalatbari shares Juett’s feeling that marijuana shouldn’t come to dominate the identity of Sexpot Comedy. 

He’s derisive of the Cannabis Cup and 420 Festival culture that has become an unfortunate media focus of Colorado marijuana scene; and says that he is equally sick of the endless cosmos-and-munchies jokes that every hack comedian rolls out when performing in Denver. Josiah Hesse is an entertainment and pop culture journalist in Denver, Colorado whose work has appeared in Westword, Out Front Colorado, and comedy blogs LaughSpin, Splitsider and The Spit Take.

SPOILER ALERT. So if you don’t want to know what the movie was about don’t read this. They say a woman whose husband has done her wrong… OK, it might be morose on my part but I sort of want to know more about that, but he is dead already, and she does or doesn’t know much about what he did or didn’t do to her…except that she had to keep mailing letters to an address. She just hangs up on creditors, and throws the mail in the trash and goes around the village like normal…though the neighbors know all about it. 

Her gardener, a man that seems to never have held a steady job, has no money, no property; but who is shacking up with a pretty woman who works as a fisherman; is trying to grow pot under other people’s bushes. The plants aren’t doing well, and because this woman, Grace, grows orchids he decides she is a wiz with plants and asks her for help. So they go out in the dead of night, and crawl under bushes and she brings one back, saying she knows they are pot. They harvest it, somewhere in it an ex-fling of her husband keeps showing her face and Grace decides to make friends and THEN gets angry and throws her out when she finds out that her husband had sex and enjoyed it with her. She can’t so now she decides for sure the ex-girlfriend will know a dealer and goes there expecting help. 

IF the husband spent any money on this woman, and it would make sense he did; it was never even hinted at in this movie. A dealer comes to the adulterer’s house, he is not big enough, so they get him to take them to a dealer big enough…and it is a pitiful attempt to make the BIG drug dealer look menacing, and totally fails. I can’t really tell how much money it is, or if it will cover Grace’s money needs…all we are given is Grace’s face looking happy and excited. Grace already knew this while she was getting him to help her do this.

State officials: Ohio’s medicinal marijuana program won’t be ready by deadline

Delays in inspections and licenses for growers mean Ohio won’t make a Sept. 8 deadline for implementation of the 2016 law legalizing medicinal marijuana, state officials say. Officials with the Ohio Department of Commerce today admitted that the state will not be ready to roll out its medicinal marijuana program by a previously-stated Sept. 8 deadline. After lawmakers passed a law legalizing medicinal marijuana in 2016, Ohio officials last November licensed 25 growers across the state to cultivate marijuana for medicinal use. None have begun planting crops yet because they haven’t received the necessary state certifications to do so. Only one – Pure Ohio Wellness LLC – has received a required state inspection. 

That leaves little time to begin the planting, processing and packaging needed so that medicinal weed will be available at dispensaries by the deadline. License holders for those dispensaries were named yesterday. The state says that three smaller growers are set for inspections this month and that five larger growers and one additional small grower will be inspected in July, clearing the way to issue certificates of operation that will allow growers to plant their crops. Department of Commerce officials blame the delay on weather and construction setbacks. The delay also comes after a variety of controversies, scoring errors and legal challenges around the way the state awarded medicinal marijuana licenses.

Marijuana is a term used to describe the dried flowers, leaves, stems, and seeds from the Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica plant. Marijuana is the most commonly used illegal drug in the United States. Societal changes including greater acceptance of marijuana use have led to its legalization for medicinal or adult recreational use. More than half the states in the U.S. have some sort of medical marijuana law. 

The medical marijuana movement’s first big victory came in 1996, with the legalization for medicinal use by California voters. Polls show support for medical marijuana ranging from 60 to more than 80 percent. A 2009 roundup of clinical evidence for the efficacy of medical marijuana was published as a landmark article in the Journal of Opioid Management. Notably absent from medical marijuana patients in the published trials, in contrast to opiate drugs, are withdrawal symptoms and other signs of addiction. Given the scientific and medical evidence available, it seems that much of the corporate resistance to medical marijuana may spring from Big Pharma concerns over lost profits instead of from safety concerns. 

Archaeologists sifting through the contents of bronze urns from Scythian culture have found marijuana seeds. Marijuana is still illegal for recreational use in 42 U.S. states. Twenty-two states haven’t even gotten around to passing compassionate medical marijuana laws.

Cannabis Society & Culture Website

There are hundreds of marijuana related magazines that are currently being published. If you have any suggestions of magazines we might of over looked please feel free to leave us a comment at the bottom of the article. High Times magazine defaults to number one on the list because they are the oldest known marijuana magazine. The first time I ever saw what dank bud looks like was in a picture in High times Magazine. Cloud Magazine is Kind of like Hightimes meets MAXIM Magazine. 

All the girls in Cloud Magazine are Ganja Girls From HTGB. Cloud Magazine focuses on the entertainment side of marijuana and tries to stay away from the politics. Skunk Magazine is a pretty high quality magazine that focuses on entertainment and a celebrity’s in marijuana plus maybe a little bit of politics. Its a pretty hefty magazine that uses good quality paper. Kush magazine is probably the most high quality magazine on this list as it has the most pages and really high quality pictures as well as being book bound. 

Kush magazine is owned and operated by dailybuds.com and features articles about politics and celebrity’s in the marijuana movement. 420 Magazine is a pretty decent magazine featuring celebrity interviews and politics surrounding marijuana. The reasons why this magazine is worth mentioning is because it has main stream quality as far as the printing goes and i also respect that they got 7-ll to distribute them.

Heavy marijuana users showing up at the ER ‘scromiting’

Chronic cannabis users are at risk of experiencing a horrifying new condition that is being reported at hospitals across the country. ‘Scromiting,’ doctors say, is becoming an all-too-familiar site at emergency rooms, with patients ‘screaming and vomiting’ as they turn up for help. The condition, called Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome, is not properly understood but medical experts believe the symptoms appear from individuals using or consuming heavy amounts of marijuana over a long period of time. Dr Aimee Moulin, an emergency room physician at UC-Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, said she has seen a rise in cases since California legalized recreational marijuana last November. Little research has been conducted on the topic, but one study found that for scromiting to occur, cannabis users would have to consume marijuana three to five times per day to develop CHS.’In one study the average duration of cannabis use prior to onset of recurrent vomiting was… 3.4 years,’ the National Center for Biotechnology Information report added. ‘The syndrome was first described in 2004 by Allen and colleagues and is characterized by chronic cannabis use, cyclic episodes of nausea and vomiting, and the learned behavior of hot bathing,’ doctors wrote. Medical experts note that the condition could stem from the body being over saturated by cannabinoids – chemical compounds that acts on cannabinoid receptors located in the brain. 

The build up the cannabinoids, doctors believe, affect the function of the hypothalamus, which regulates digestion and body temperature. In Colorado, Dr. Kennon Heard, an emergency physician at the University of Colorado in Aurora said they are diagnosing more cases however he doesn’t believe cases increased after recreational use was legalized in 2012, because chronic users probably already had medical marijuana cards. According to the NCBI: ‘Often mistakenly called Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome, Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome is a rare form of cannabinoid toxicity that develops in chronic smokers. ‘It’s characterized by cyclic episodes of debilitating nausea and vomiting. People who suffer from the syndrome often find that hot showers relieve their symptoms, and will compulsively bathe during episodes of nausea and vomiting.

Ohio won’t hit Sept. 8 deadline for medical marijuana

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio said Tuesday that it will not have medical marijuana available by the September deadline, even as a key backer of recreational marijuana legalization said he’s using a combination of strategies to continue expanding access to safe cannabis. Several cultivators who were close to ramping up operations experienced inspection delays that now make it impossible to meet the date set by Ohio’s 2016 medical marijuana law, Department of Commerce policy adviser Mark Hamlin said. Hamlin contended that the state is not technically out of compliance with the law, because it called for the program itself – not the marijuana – to be ready on the implementation date. Ohio has licensed 25 large and small growers and on Monday awarded 56 dispensary licenses. Ian James, who ran the unsuccessful ballot campaign to legalize both recreational and medical marijuana in 2015, likened a series of missteps with the program – including a convicted felon placed on an application screening committee, shared passwords and missed deadlines – to a classic satirical comedy. 

James, founder and president of Green Light Acquisitions LLC, outlined a well-funded, multi-pronged approach for how his various business and political interests are pushing forward on $250 million of related projects. James said his business has developed a line of therapeutic lotions, soaps and sprays using cannabidiol that he’s marketing to large national retailers, including Urban Outfitters and Sephora. The firm also is moving into insurance, pet products and beverages, he said. James said his plans to pursue another constitutional amendment legalizing marijuana for personal use, which would likely appear on the 2020 ballot, haven’t been dampened by a competing proposal. If lawmakers don’t act, he said his campaign organization would push it to the ballot as an initiated statute. 

Another bill he’s advocating would open Ohio to hemp cultivation that’s now legal in many surrounding states, a proposal James said is backed by the American Farm Bureau. Green Light attorney Ted Bibart said creating good cannabis policy is key to advocates’ ultimate goal.

Comedian Don Richardson – “Legalize Marijuana”

You’re Ganja Love It: Five of Our Favorite Marijuana-Themed Indies

As marijuana laws have shifted over the years-from outright prohibition, to limited medicinal usage, to tightly regulated recreational use within certain states-marijuana themed movies have likewise evolved. Once upon a time, the only movies that even touched the subject of pot were hysterical propaganda pieces like Reefer Madness. In recent years stoner movies have gotten more thoughtful, nuanced and even, yes, serious-especially as it’s started to become big business, with even bigger stakes. So regardless of whether you’re completely toasted or a total teetotaler, here are five indies we love-including a few comedies-about marijuana and marijuana lovers. Why We Love It: The directorial debut of Rodarte fashion label founders Kate and Laura Mulleavy, Woodshock is the dreamlike tale of Kirsten Dunst’s grief-stricken Theresa, an employee at a northern California cannabis dispensary who, as the film begins, uses a joint laced with rare poison to help her terminally-ill mother commit suicide. 

More than any other film on this list, Woodshock conjures the sensation of actually being high-not that we would know, Mom. Why We Love It: Premiering at the 2016 LA Film Festival where it won the Audience Award, writer/director Ryon Baxter’s debut feature is a semi-autobiographical family drama set amid northern California’s booming cannabis cultivation industry. Baxter himself plays Cameron, a temperamental young worker at a massive growing operation who’s suddenly put in charge of caring for his 13-year-old sibling, Mason-played by Baxter’s real-life sibling, Jimmy Baxter. Why We Love It: At first glance, this 2004 cult hit might seem like just another dumb stoner comedy. Why We Love It: Despite its title, venerable LA comedian Doug Benson’s feature-length Super Size Me riff isn’t really a parody of the hit 2004 Morgan Spurlock fast food exposé. 

Along the way Benson interviews fellow potheads, doctors, dispensary operators, politicians, law enforcement and medical marijuana patients, putting together a fascinating portrait of the quasi-legal no-man’s land of mid-‘aughts cannabis consumption. Why We Love It: Winner of the Robert Altman Award at the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards, Paul Thomas Anderson’s shaggy-dog LA neo-noir detective fable stars Joaquin Phoenix as Doc Sportello-an underemployed South Bay private dick and champion pothead-who stumbles into a labyrinthine murder conspiracy involving well, it’s sort of hard to explain.

REVISED MARIJUANA BYLAW CLEANS UP ZONING

SHIRLEY – The Planning Board rolled out a revised version of the new marijuana bylaw passed at Special Town Meeting last month and voted unanimously last week to present it at the May 14 Annual Town Meeting. Amendments to the new bylaw – hammered out at a previous workshop and approved at the recent session – are aimed at resolving a sticking point some STM voters objected to in the original. Specifically, a required 500-foot buffer between the driveway of a marijuana facility and that of a school, day care center, church, or residence, among others. In effect, the restriction would make the town’s few commercial and industrial-zoned areas off limits for recreational marijuana businesses, even non-retail establishments such as farms, factories, or labs. The board, which had worked on the first bylaw for months, said that was not its intent and agreed to work on a re-do after it passed, with input from residents, including John Rounds, who provided an outline for the board to work from. 

Amend Section 4.18.7.a.7 by renumbering as 4.18.7.a.6. Amend Section 11 by adding a definition for Non-Retail Marijuana Business. Authorize the Town Clerk to make several corrections to typos.

LEGALIZE, TAX, AND REGULATE MARIJUANA!

We support the legalization, taxation and regulation of marijuana in our state and around the country! These laws must change. This is a huge time for the country to show everyone that we have had enough of these unjust laws. Too many people are being arrested at gun point for something that grows freely from the ground. We here at Legalize Ohio are determined to bring sensible reform to this state. 

Colorado and Washington voters have just shocked the world by legalizing marijuana for recreational use by adults 21 years of age and older. Marijuana is not the drug that it has been made out to be. In the coming months it will be amazing to see the results of this legalization and we are interested to see what is going to happen. We must take this momentum and run with it here in Ohio. Getting this movement to the main stream is all dependant on your support, as well as the support of our sponsors like Thickassglass.com, and we are glad we have it! 

Lets Legalize Ohio.
