old minutes, random stuff found while googling:

 

There are three new marihuana entities associated with the distribution of medical

marihuana that have opened up in the Mid-Michigan area. The department has no

authority to regulate these entities. An investigator can go into the business and

complete a fact-finding visit, but has no authority to conduct a formal investigation. The

department is meeting with the Attorney General’s office to discuss physicians who are

signing certifications without having a bona fide relationship with the patients.

It was also noted that there is a bill in the Senate that includes two proposed changes:

1) changing medical marihuana from a schedule 1 controlled substance to a schedule 2

which would allow marihuana to be prescribed by a physician and dispensed by a

pharmacy; and 2) allows 10 regulated growing facilities in the state of Michigan.

 

The review panel for the Medical Marihuana Program consists of seven ACPSM

members, physicians, advocacy groups or physicians who support the use of

marihuana for the treatment of pain. Dr. Greg Holzman, Chief Medical Executive for the

Michigan Department of Community Health, will be the Chairperson, and Rae Ramsdell

will staff the panel.

I would recommend being organized, thorough, scientific, information packed and extensively documented.

 

People shouldn;t just haphazard these petitions.

 

Contact me if you want to put together small groups to specialize in specific conditions and pool research and resources to submit the most top notch petitions.

 

This must be done.

I have about 1200 cannabinoid/endocannaboid peer-reviewed journal articles archived. Tell me the condition and I will come back with a list of articles/url links. I've basically been creating the archive for this very purpose or in case someone I know with a condition ended up in court. I rarely login as I am very very busy so I prefer to work through this thread or another more specific thread if you choose, and will keep my posts to a minimum by editing condition-specific posts with addendum material instead of generating new posts.

Thanks for all the work you have done for us all

IMHO adding new conditions has been on my list and the MMMA for a long time

We just think that it's putting the cart be for the horse

Because you still can't use any thing in Court

so whats the plan ?

 

submit a petition for every known ailment that can be helped by marijuana?

otherwise they wont add new ailments because 'they didnt get a petition for that ailment' ?

 

start with other states allowed ailments? start with ptsd? anxiety? insomnia?

anxiety I think that would cover the hole State

and then you could ask for more plants because if you get raided and like us completely Legal you may have a good case as to why you had over 12

california allows medical marijuana for anything that marijuana alleviates.

 

maybe we should just focus on that?

 

why add one or two or three or three dozen stupidly specific diseases when it would be simpler to add a catch-all?

i'd hate to focus attention on ptsd, anxiety, insomnia etc when theres some oddly specific medical condition that we forgot or overlooked , thus depriving those patients relief.

 

Definitions:

a (3) Any other medical condition or its treatment approved by the department, as provided for in section 5(a).

sec 5a:

the department shall consider the addition of medical conditions or treatments to the list of debilitating medical conditions set forth in section 3(a) of this act.

 

would also save time, money and resources for LARA and petition process, hearing process, court challenges, etc.

T-pain, this may come as a surprise to you but this is Michigan, not California. Their law has less than zero to do with ours. Savvy.

I am sure they will see a lot of our scrubbed and shining faces. Credentials will carry weight. Wearing a lab coat to these pow wows; not so much, but priceless anyhow.

michael did a video talk about marijuana back in 2010

you can view it here, Medical Marijuana: A Joint Discussion of Legal & Clinical Issues:

http://www.med.wayne...al_Medicine.asp

 

wow, watching that video now. michael was a member of the panel since 2009/2010.

the panel was created within 60 days like the law says. i think.

at 14:00 minutes into the video, he says:

 

the panel had recieved these petitions:

depression

bi-polar disorder

other mental illness

all hospital admissions

all patients in hospice

tourettes

 

the petitions were returned to the petitioners with a request to resubmit with evidence of efficacy.

none returned yet (as of the video in 2010)

no new conditions approved.

 

so please when creating your petitions, give evidence of efficacy.

obviously , the form they have created adresses these issues, but its worth repeating.
