  1. Thanks for the updates. Been glued to the news outlets at work when I couldn't check in here.
  2. This is craziness. I'm amazed at the lengths they went through to justify this. Sounds like certification docs need to start issuing dosage and frequency letters with their recommendations to protect patients and caregivers. It really goes to show how much outright legalization is needed, otherwise we'll keep having to deal with nonsense like this.
  3. "Drooping Issue" Yeah, my wife has that problem too. (Sorry, had to. It was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the thread title.)
  4. http://www.freep.com/article/20131230/NEWS03/312300016/Novi-District-Judge-Brian-MacKenzie Novi judge denies conflict over ties to testing firms Novi District Judge Brian MacKenzie is known for his get-tough brand of justice, ordering those who appear before him to undergo months of daily drug and alcohol testing and use interlock devices on their cars. His court offers the thousands of defendants who pass through annually a list of suggested local testing facilities and interlock vendors, which are privately owned businesses. Among the recommended facilities: ones his family members have or had financial ties to, a Free Press review of records found. The judge’s wife is the paid executive director of the Michigan Association of Drug Court Professionals, a nonprofit organization that receives thousands of dollars annually from the drug- and alcohol-testing companies. MacKenzie is that group’s president, an unpaid position. And his son worked for 16 months at Jail Alternative for Michigan Services, known as JAMS, the largest drug- and alcohol-testing company in metro Detroit. MacKenzie denies any conflict of interest, saying he receives no financial benefit from any facility and has been ordering testing for years.... Remainder of article at link.

  6. Hey everyone, It has been a very long time since I've posted here, But for those who don't know me, I've been around since pretty much the beginning and have seen the developments of and attacks on the medical marihuana act since its inception in 2008. One of these attacks was HB 4856, which forces marijuana patients to transport any medicine in a locked box or locked in the trunk of their vehicles, regulations not in place for users of other drugs which pose a far greater risk of impairment when driving. One of the sponsors of this bill was Rep. Ben Glardon ® of Michigan's 85th House District. The 85th district stretches from Perry, MI North to portions of Saginaw County. It encompasses the cities of Owosso, Corunna and Durand as well as numerous villages and townships. Next year, Rep. Glardon is up for re-election. Let's send him a message loud and clear that we will not tolerate targeting of marijuana patients for discriminatory legislation like his marijuana transport bill. Let's get him un-elected. I am on the campaign team for a democratic candidate in the 85th district for 2014. I'm not releasing his name as he has not yet made an official announcement, but he has filed the paperwork and started building his campaign team. I am honored to be a part of that. I'm wondering if there is anyone else on these boards that might be from the 85th district that might be interested in learning more, contributing or volunteering for the campaign. The candidate feels strongly about decriminalizing marijuana and believes that the legislature needs to respect the law the people voted in, rather than trying to undermine it. Anyway, just putting out some feelers. If there is anyone who would like to learn more or be kept abreast as the campaign develops, pleases shoot me a message at lansingareacaregiver@yahoo.com. Thanks!
  7. Just got my micro-vaped in the mail last night and tried it with a little earwax. Initial impressions are great! Really quick heat up. Nice big vapor clouds. Unit feels heavy/sturdy for its size. Can't comment on longevity as I just got it last night. So far, so good. http://www.ruvaped.com/
  8. The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated. I'll be back when the time is right... .
  9. Roseville patient has found a new caregiver thanks to this site. Lansing is still looking.
  10. Right on, but in the meantime I can't meet my patients' needs and I'm not about to string them along. Plus having added 2 little ones to my family and new time consuming day job, and I simply don't have the time to dedicate to my grow to provide the level of service my patients deserve, so I'm stepping out, hopefully just for awhile. In the meantime, I'm doing what I can to try and get my patients set up with new caregivers. My life is a LOT different than it was when I was the single, unattached, relatively responsibility-free guy I was when I got into caregiving. I just keep telling myself I can come back to it, but you have to realize when the time just isn't right.
  11. Good morning, Due to changing family and work situations, along with yet another invasion by the BORG, I've been forced out of the caregiving scene. Sucks, because this was my dream. Anyway, I've got 2 patients I'm trying to help find a new caregiver. These are both my patients, and I feel absolutely terrible for not being able to continue to serve them. The Roseville patient needs approximatey 1 ounce per month. The patient in Lansing goes through approximately 4 ounces / month. Both prefer indicas. Both have had an experience with a very professional caregiver (me,) so they will be looking for a caregiver who knows what he/she is doing. and can supply consistency and quality at a fair price. Please let me know if you are interested in taking on either of these patients. Shoot me a PM or email letting me know how to get a hold of you and I'll forward this on to my patients. FYI, the Roseville patient does not use email/internet so I'll need a phone number if you want to chat with her. Thanks!
  12. Might I be able to join y'all? Putting faces to the anonymity might be just what I need to reenergize. Been feeling a bit beat down what with the new regulations, the court cases, etc.
  13. This study was linked to on FARK a few weeks ago. Their headline said it all (paraphrasing a bit here) Study: Marijuana doubles your risk of stroke. Study: All but one of the test subjects who tested positive for marijuana also smoked cigarettes. Fark: Cigarettes smokers have 4 times the risk of stroke. Math FTW (For the win): Marijuana use cuts stroke risk in half.
  14. Not saying the guy wasn't doing anything illegal. I'm just questioning how two weeks have gone by and nobody (even the guy's defense attorney) seems to have verified whether or not he was a licensed patient and caregiver. It takes 1 phone call. How has it gotten this far without anyone even bothering to check?
  15. This is outrageous. Guy's house got broken into. His girl bagged and tagged the ripper. And now HE is up on felony charges with a sizeable bail. Two weeks have gone by since the incident and NOBODY has verified whether he is a patient and caregiver as he claims or not! TWO WEEKS! Apparently even his defense attorney hasn't checked! http://www.mlive.com/lansing-news/index.ssf/2013/03/delhi_township_home_invasion_v.html#comments MASON, MI — Nearly two weeks after an intruder barged into his home, a Delhi Township man faces a pair of felony gun charges and one felony drug charge. Jason Terrill, 31, was arrested Monday, March 4, according to Ingham County Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth. Terrill is charged with delivering/manufacturing 5 to 45 kilograms of marijuana, possession of a firearm by a felon and felony firearm. A 20-year-old Lansing man wielding a handgun entered Terrill's home at 4216 W. Holt Road in Delhi Township through an unlocked back door about midnight Feb. 21, according to police. A woman who lives with Terrill shot the intruder in the abdomen. She has not been charged with a crime. Sheriff's deputies later found 57 marijuana plants of various sizes in Terrill's house. They also seized seven guns, six of them belonging to the homeowners. Of those six, one was an assault rifle and another was a Romanian AK-47 replica. The plants and firearms were seized after deputies obtained a search warrant. Wriggelsworth said Terrill claims he is a licensed medical marijuana caregiver and also is licensed as a patient to possess the drug. Magistrate James Pahl arraigned Terrill in Ingham County District Court on Tuesday. He set Terrill's bond at $35,000, stipulating he may not consume alcohol or drugs. Terrill posted bond and had been released by Wednesday, March 6. Pahl scheduled Terrill for a pretrial conference on March 12 and preliminary examination on March 14. Both hearings are set to be held before Ingham District Judge Donald Allen.
