Our first medical dispensaries opened today (a whole four of em) here in Ohio after a 33 month wait since the legislation was passed.  Of course they did not open on time because our state legislature passed the laws unlike most other states where the voters did it on ballots.

IIRC, Ohio was the last state to legalize gaming casinos ... sigh ...

Is CBD a Miracle Cure or a Marketing Scam? (Both.)

Cannabidiol is caught between two worlds.

from the February 2019 issue - view article in the Digital Edition
Jennifer Aniston uses it for anxiety. Podcast host Joe Rogan applies it for elbow pain. You can buy dog treats infused with it, as well as facial scrubs and hand lotions, tinctures, and vaporizer cartridges. It's used as an ingredient in cocktails, beer, and gummy worms. It's sold at Amish markets and at fancy boutiques and at prepper depots. In October, it received the ultimate blessing for a trendy new cure-all: It was the subject of a multipart special on daytime basic cable hosted by Dr. Oz.

"It" is cannabidiol, or CBD, a compound contained mostly in the flowers of the female marijuana plant but also in the burlier hemp plant—both strains of Cannabis sativa. Like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD attaches to receptors throughout the body. But unlike THC, it doesn't alter perception or sharpen the appetite. Instead, people who use pure CBD report feeling calmed and relaxed. As Aniston recently told Us Weekly, "CBD helps with pain, stress, and anxiety. It has all the benefits of marijuana without the high."

But alongside all the celebrity buzz and bright marketing claims, there is another, more inspiring type of story about CBD: Children wracked by dozens of severe epileptic seizures a day who are suddenly well, their desperate parents weeping in relief. Although there is a near-complete absence of data concerning casual, low-dose use in lollipops or scented skin creams, a growing body of scientific evidence shows the efficacy of large doses of pure CBD for treating certain dire medical conditions.

The growing universe of CBD products—powerful cures and spa-day fun alike—is threatened by overzealous regulators, some of whom insist that CBD be classed among the most dangerous drugs. That means the people who stand to benefit most—the sickest and most desperate CBD users—remain at grave risk.

CBD, then, is caught between two worlds: the medical reality of its effectiveness in large doses on the one hand, and the popular image of a tasty, calming, faddish cure-all on the other.

The Return of Reefer Madness
Nationwide, marijuana legalization is becoming more normal. Colorado’s dispensaries are hailed as an economic success story, and other states are following suit—New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has indicated he’ll support legalization after New York City’s choice to gradually decriminalize the drug. The trend is global: Canada recently joined Uruguay in fully legalizing cannabis, and Lebanon is also mulling legalization.

Marijuana legalization has always had its opponents—including the alcohol lobby, which wants to protect its monopoly on legal intoxicants, and the prison/industrial complex, which fears a decrease in the number of nonviolent drug offenders who keep jail cells full. Now the reactionaries have another champion athwart history: former New York Times journalist Alex Berenson. (...)

Sisters of the Valley is a CBD product company that is entirely owned and operated by women, and they do it all while wearing full habits. They operate from a rural ranch in Merced, California, where they’re surrounded by almond farms and cow pastures for miles.

The women come from all walks of life, from all over the world, united in their shared belief in the cannabis plant. Together, they hand-make CBD-infused salves, tinctures, soaps and oils. (CBD is cannabidiol, the trendy component of the marijuana plant that is a hemp-derived extract, but it’s not the part of the plant that gets you high.)

If This Bill Passes, Possessing Pot in Texas Will Be Treated Less Harshly Than Distributing Straws in San Francisco

 

A new bill in the Texas legislature would decriminalize the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis.

Rep. Joe Moody (D–El Paso) today introduced HB 63. If it becomes law, possessing up to an ounce of marijuana would be a civil infraction, punishable by a maximum $250 fine. Currently, possession of any marijuana is a Class B misdemeanor and can earn you up to $2,000 in penalties and six months in jail.

Some 41,000 people were convicted of marijuana possession in Texas between August 2017 and August 2018, according to the state Department of Public Safety.

 

Moody's bill would also bar police officers from arresting someone solely for possessing an ounce or less of marijuana.

"Civil penalty legislation is the first thing I've filed on the first day of filing for the 86th Session. There's been an incredible swell of bipartisan support since last session," says Moody in a press release. "I'm optimistic that this will be the session we finally see smarter, fairer marijuana laws in Texas."

I'm looking forward to a trip to Michigan soon to find out what the rules are there.  In California, the wife was not allowed to buy any because she lived in a state where it is still illegal, Ohio.  Colorado has no such restrictions.

And as far as Ohio is concerned, our state legislature is what passed medical use.  And just as could be expected because it was a government body, it's not working.  Deadlines for progress on the infrastructure and mechanisms have come and gone and not been accomplished.  Dispensaries should be open and running by now.  They're still trying to work out the cultivation part ...  futher muckers ...

I'm actually a little surprised that that evil little elf Session and his orange boss haven't sent an army of US Marshals - or even the army - to enforce federal marijuana laws in the states that have legalized the stuff.

Yeah.... I wonder what the narcissistic position politics should be on receiving uneducated, unskilled migrant from Mexico and Central America.   After all, you can look really generous giving away something that you do not own but share with large numbers of other people.  It seems that most progressives always feel entitled to the commons.   And feel entitled to make decisions for others.

Besides America is a great country.  One can be a 'progressive' AND support ethnic-cleansing terrorism.    The War on Terror is ample evidence that most Americans including progressives were born with FASD and/or sniffed glue during the formative years. 

Weed smokers come in all shapes and sizes.  Some are incredibly active and productive; some use the drug as a pretext to move through life very, very slowly.    As immigrants, who would you want?  Folks that reduce the average material standard of living and reduce the ability of the welfare state to redistribute income?   Or the ones that are active and productive?
