Is this person a Dr?  She's saying high THC causes seisures... 

And Naptha needs to be outlawed?  She's using Fear and conjecture to pursue her own agenda...  She's trying to commercialize and make it so only large companies can afford to grow.  I don't use or condone naptha, but I also would like to see her lab tests showing traces left over.  And who does she know that's died from it?  No one.

 

Seriously, who is this woman?  She needs to be removed from hearings.

Cannabis Patients United opposes the bill as written, and will testify...

 

Becca Hollingsworth gave this testimony back in late May, I was in attendance.  Personally I did not care for her testimony and have to wonder if she is not being paid by forces that would like to come into Michigan if 4271 passes.

 

Our main objection to the bill is allowing dispensaries to cultivate.  We consider this a slippery slope that could lead to caregivers being banned.

It just goes to show us things go on behind the scenes that we don't know about $$$ money does that IMHO

The title of this thread is very misleading. 

 

The hearing, or non-hearing as described by the head of the Judiciary Committee of the State Reps, was held back in May as Hayduke said.    I was there.  It was standing room only and from what I could tell there was someone there from nearly every activist group in the State plus MPP

exactly right, Semi...

 

And Rep Cotter the chair of the House Judiciary made clear this was NOT a hearing on HB 4271 but rather a discussion of distribution.... 

 

so I agree the title of this thread is factually incorrect...

 

though only dispensary proponents and testing groups were given time in the morning to testify...

in one of the testimonies (joe cain?) he cuts the speaker off and says how the speaker cant just attack the bill, or else nothing will get done. 

 

or something like that.

the speaker had a valid point but i think was not voicing it with the right words.

 

but yeah i thought this was a new video, not from may :)

Yes that was Joe Cain they cut off along with others that were not given time.

Thank you for the clarification on the meeting. 

 

I know CPU is opposed to 4271 as it is now written.  We are lucky to have them attempting to fight some of the language.  Unfortunately, I could never afford the dues to be part of CPU.  I suppose I should clarify and ask if their are effective ways "common folk" can help oppose the language in the bill.   I was approached by another activist in the community with the same questions.  How can people help and show their opposition without hindering overall?

The Medical Marihuana Review Panel is currently taking comments in support of adding Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a qualifying condition for Michigan’s medical marijuana program. Please make your voice heard and support the addition of this devastating condition!The panel will also conduct a public hearing on September 5. The deadline for written comments is 5:00 p.m. on October 5. 

According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, PTSD will affect 7-8% of Americans at some point in their lives. In Michigan, that’s about three quarters of a million people. PTSD can be debilitating in all areas of a person’s life, impacting sleep, school, work, and personal relationships.

Many find relief through the use of medical marijuana, particularlyveterans, and victims of trauma should not be considered criminals for seeking a safer alternative to many pharmaceutical medications.

Please consider attending the public hearing in support, particularly if you are a patient with PTSD or a medical professional:

What: Public hearing to add PTSD

Where: G. Mennen Williams Building, Williams Auditorium – 1st Floor, 525 West Ottawa, Lansing, MI 48933

When: Thursday, September 5, 2013 at 1:00 p.m.

She is Cannalytics at the RC Randall memorial wellness center in Lansing.

 

This is standard fare from what I hear from most testing facilities and proponents in public, private and governmentally.  Thus my years long annoyance with testing purveyors.

 

 They work with these groups/businesses and in my opinion, should be boycotted for working with such a business who is so clueless and wrong on so many levels.

I assume she's from Cannalytics.

 

I'm not familiar with this bill, but in terms of her testimony in this video, she seemed relatively accurate. it did seem as though she may have jumbled some issues (like pesticides and nutes). I assume she meant that there are dangers associated with caregivers using pesticides, as well as some nutrients (like Gravity).

 

THC can exacerbate spasms/seizures in some conditions.   

 

Concentrates should not contain carcinogens. I was told that there has never been a BHO sample tested at Cannalytics that didn't test positive for petroleum residues. That's simply irresponsible imo.

I should add that I recognize the need for home grows to remain a legal option for cannabis patients. I assume that's the foremost concern with those opposed to her testimony. I simply feel that the argument for home grows should take a higher ground than simply claiming that opponents are ignorant.

Okeefe the writer of Michigan Medical Marijuana Act gives her view. This meeting was never placed on the agenda, yet it covered a highly controversial topic in the State of Michigan. Patients and Caregivers rights, and the distribution of medical marijuana. However, the only view points that were given during this testimony was supportive of HB 4271. Patients and Caregivers do not support HB 4271 but we were not given a chance to attend, or voice our concerns.

The problem is the bad information.

 

CBD is not proven to be the main anticonvulsant used in cannabis and actually has shown in one study that it helped 1/4 of the subjects, did nothing to 1/4, and increased seizures in 50%.

 

I can say from personal experience, CBD does absolutely nothing for me but give me a headache.  I guess I am part of the second 25%.

 

For them to make such ridiculous and broad statements is just dumb and deserves ridicule.  They simply are doing it to promote their business and beg for their state license when and if testing becomes legal and regulated.

 

What they do is dangerous and misinforms the legislators.

I agree. She was using lots of qualifiers and weasel wording to promote fear and uncertainty. I know from personal experience that THC rich meds can and do prevent seizures.

 

Sure wish Zach Jarou still owned Cannalytics.

I mean, the problem we know well(epilepsy sufferers) is that much data is generalized and not type specific. There are many different kinds of "Epilepsy" with many different causes.

 

Types of Epilepsy

Temporal Lobe Epilepsy
Frontal Lobe Epilepsy
Parietal Lobe Epilepsy
Occipital Lobe Epilepsy
Primary Generalized Epilepsy
Idiopathic Partial Epilepsy
Symptomatic Generalized Epilepsy
Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy
Reflex Epilepsy
Febrile Seizures
Benign Rolandic Epilepsy
Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy
Infantile Spasms
Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome
Childhood Absence Epilepsy
Benign Occipital Epilepsy
Mitochondrial Disorders
Landau-Kleffner Syndrome
Rasmussen Syndrome
Hypothalamic Hamartoma & Epilepsy

 

 

 To generalize about so many different inflictions that "CBD is the best because it doesn't get you high" is naïve and dangerous to the patients themselves.  Honesty of the vagueness of research is paramount to patients.  Education is important for these people.  Many forget,... Epilepsy kills.  Broad irresponsible statements that merely exist to promote ones business model are unhelpfull and sometimes damaging.

 

They seek legitimacy by lying. Plain and simple in my eyes and view.  Others may feel different and I accept that; but I will say something about it. :-)
