LANSING, MI - It was chilly on the morning of Dec. 15., but Michigan State Police stood outside a state office building. They were there for safety, ready, as the Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation opened its doors, for some applicants to show up with the $6,000 application fee in cash.
Michigan lawmakers authorized a new medical marijuana industry in 2016, and the state began accepting applications to be a part of it on Dec. 15, 2017. But businesses seeking inclusion
Attorney General Jeff Sessions January 4th memo regarding marijuana enforcement is historic... and it should promptly be consigned to the dustbin of history. Mr. Session’s very name is a history lesson. Like his father and grandfather, he was named after Jefferson Davis, the first and only president of the Confederacy and P.G.T. Beauregard, the first prominent general of the Confederate Army. These were the men who lead the people of Alabama in their desire and purpose to join the “slave-holding

Senator Calls Out Big Pharma For Opposing Legal Marijuana
A prominent Democratic U.S. senator is slamming pharmaceutical companies for opposing marijuana legalization.
"To them it's competition for chronic pain, and that's outrageous because we don't have the crisis in people who take marijuana for chronic pain having overdose issues," Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York said. "It's not the same thing. It's not as highly addictive as o
As this news hit in the last throes of 2017, it seems appropriate to take a step back and understand why exactly marijuana was banned all of those years ago. Please continue reading to find the answers on this long and weird journey through time.

Pat Robertson began publicly criticizing the drug war in December 2010, and he has become more vocal since. Unlike the vague critiques often heard from prominent figures—even Barack Obama has called the drug war a failure—Robertson’s insights have been precise, and consistent, and deeply-r
Hello all, just came across this article on the web, thought I would share it with everyone.
Reported by: Amanda Stevenson
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) said that he believes states should decide on the legalization of medicinal marijuana Friday.
Could Kentucky be one of them?
Sen. Perry Clark (D-Louisville) believes so--he's filed a bill, the Gatewood Galbraith Medical Marijuana Memorial Act, to be considered in the 2013 legislative session.

Hello to all members of the MMMA.
I would like to introduce myself.
In 2004 I injured my lower back in an accident. After meeting with several doctors, surgery wasn't an option for me. The only thing the doctor's could do for me, was to prescribe narcotics for me. I started out with vicodine, after upping my dose for several months, I was switched to the Fentyl patch, which i have been told is synthetic morphine. After a year of that my body started going through with drawls after 48 hou

Ryan says medical cannabis should be left to the states but his prior vote on this issue says otherwise.
Attached is the rohrabacher-hinchey-mcclintock-farr amendment to h.r. 5326 that would have left medical marijuana to the states and was voted on back in May. Here is the roll call vote( Rep. Dan Benishek(MI-1) DID vote yes):

I'm looking for any donations of some simpson oil for terinally ill cancer patient, so far it's the only thing it's keeping him alive. He's got Mesotheloima Cancer and he has survived longer than they expected. But it's the simpson oil that's keeping him alive. And we have a shortage of it right now. It would be great if anyone could or be willing to donate some Simpson Oil.

Marijuana as a Gateway Drug: The Myth That Will Not Die
If all the arguments that have been used to demonize marijuana, few have been more powerful than that of the “gateway effect”: the notion that while marijuana itself may not be especially dangerous, it ineluctably leads to harder drugs like heroin and cocaine. Even Nick Kristof — in a column favoring marijuana legalization — alluded to it this week in the New York Times. In what is known as the “to be sure” paragraph, where op-ed w

We hope that this new platform will better aid us in reaching out to our members and friends.

Ok where do I begin? What's the dealio? Why is everyone in such a state over clones? *ducks* Sorry I was sure the gawds were going to strike me dead! Who knows they still might. Being I was politely told that posting such adverts about clones was not allowed I moved on. Well not really, I posted a little diddy that was nothing more than a little rhyme that was so general it was silly. It was quietly removed ( cause I can't find it NO MOE! ).

Simple as 1,2,3 - Will be the new policy for the MMMA forums
So much ado has been made at our attempt to provide a reasonable policy for posting on the forums. Much debate has been had amongst the moderator staff and on the forums amongst our members. As is often the case and even more so on the Internet, communication and semantics are critical when trying to develop a consistent but clear policy regarding the Act that can be enforced easily and without issue. The unambiguous policy to date
Today is Independent’s Day; the day set aside by Congress to celebrate freedom. When this day was first established, it was to tout the colonies freedom from British oppressors. What freedoms are we celebrating today?
Some people in this country will celebrate the Federal Supreme Court deciding that we may have possible freedom from bankruptcy caused by ever increasing medical bills. Granted, we may end up fined for lacking medical insurance.

Being that not all patients smoke; I think of the transfer of cannabis, I think of the foods and topicals that are exchanged for cost.

Yes I agree its wise to just not medicate in your vehicle. If they smell burnt product your getting a DWI. Here in Grand Rapids we still don't have legal access for meds. Just proves once this state gets their hands on things its been total chaos & corruption & a huge shortage on tested meds.
Right off the bat you fudged up by calling it RICK SIMPSON. It's CANNABIS OIL.
Get several opinions before you get the radiation treatment.

Well not sure if it's ok if I post here because I'm from Florida, But any how I'm 60 yrs old and back on December 17 2017 I found out I had cancer on my tongue Verrucous squamous cell carcinoma is the type of cancer a very slow growing so i had a pet scan to see if it had spread and found out that it did not and that is was very condensed to that spot on the front of my tongue so my ear nose and throat specialists cut out about 2"x 1 1/2" of my tongue out and there was a pathologist right there
He's been standing on the shoulders of all the folks who have come before him that actually did something. He, Rick Simpson, just made a sloppy mess of an extraction and pretended he invented something. Then to most of the real folks dismay, he put his name on it and it stuck. Ego maniac in the medical marijuana closet, I'll give him that.
