Look, we all know that 4/20 is something of a silly holiday. Weed Day is essentially an excuse for your classic stoner-types to toke up (more than usual) and chill on the couch. But over the years, 420 has become something of a day to reflect on how far the cannabis industry has come. It is a day of defiance and a day of freedom — freedom from law enforcement and freedom to medicate with cannabis however you see fit. With that in mind, we’ve collected five films that are worth watching this 420 that encapsulate what it’s like to be a marijuana user throughout the ages.
Missouri will officially launch their “420 drugged-driving enforcement campaign” this coming weekend in an effort to crack down on those driving under the influence of drugs. This means that police will be patrolling the state (April 20, 2019) seeking to bust those specifically using drugs.
Missouri residents have been waiting for medical marijuana in their state for over half a year. One of the biggest hurdles that the industry faces is when the Missouri medical marijuana registration will open and what exactly will happen for patients when it does. We break down the entire process.
Ever since Missouri passed their medical marijuana law, many have been wondering just how many potential patients the state will eventually have once the program is fully operational. The Kansas City Star is now reporting that the state hired a team at the University of Missouri to determine the Missouri medical marijuana patient projection numbers. However, their research confusingly suggests a mere 26,000 medical marijuana patients will exist in Missouri by the end of 2022.
Medical marijuana (also known as cannabis) is an effective treatment for literally dozens of qualifying medical conditions. In this article, we will explore what Fibromyalgia is exactly and how it affects the body. We’ll also take a look at the research that’s been conducted showing how medical marijuana may be able to help, especially for fibromyalgia patients who have exhausted other treatment options.
Medical marijuana has long been used to treat a number of medical conditions, many of which manifest physical symptoms that marijuana (also known as cannabis) can address. Cannabis is not only beneficial to the body, but also the mind. We will take a look at how cannabis can help with PTSD and other psychological disorders, like anxiety and depression.
Research has shown that medical marijuana can be used to treat a variety of ailments. One of the most common conditions we see at Green Health Docs is pain. Though the term varies by which state you may live in, pain is generally defined as chronic, intractable or severe. And medical marijuana for pain is usually the number one condition noted in every single state with an implemented medical marijuana program. This makes pain the most common qualifying condition for literally millions of patients.
Last week, state senators passed Ohio Senate Bill 57, a measure that paves the way for Ohio hemp legalization. The bipartisan effort originated from two Republican Senators, Dayton’s Steve Huffman and Zaneville’s Brian Hill. Co-sponsors on the bill include Nickie Antonio, a Lakewood Democratic Senator, and John Eklund, a Munson Township Republican.
North Dakota has been trying to figure out all the logistics of their fairly new medical marijuana law since its inception. For those unaware, the law went into effect during the summer of 2018. Advocates and patients have been pushing for the state to add medical marijuana edibles to their list of approved forms of cannabis since that time. Alas, the measure has fallen short of the necessary votes in order to be approved. This leaves both advocates and patients angry, wondering what will happen next.
