Utah Doctors Endorse Medical Marijuana Tinctures


This week, three Utah physicians wrote a letter to the state Controlled Substances Advisory Committee to endorse the use of medical marijuana for patients, including the use of marijuana tinctures for children suffering from debilitating illnesses, such as epilepsy.


The letter was written by pediatric neurologist Dr. Francis Filloux.  Filloux and his colleagues join a recent push by a Utah mother to change the state law to allow the use of cannabis oil extract.


“The substance is not psychoactive or hallucinogenic,” Filloux said in his letter, which was co-signed by two other university doctors. “It has absolutely no abuse potential.”


By not allowing the cannabis oil in Utah, “we would be making the decision to limit access of our children to a potentially life-improving therapy,” Filloux wrote.


The Controlled Substances Advisory Committee, which is comprised of physicians, pharmacists, and law enforcement, does not have the power to simply allow any form of medical marijuana. 


However, they can provide recommendations about legislation to the state legislature.


Utah Representative Gage Froerer has already announced that he plans to introduce a bill in January that would allow hemp products, including marijuana tinctures. 


Tinctures can be considered a hemp product due to their extremely low THC content.

      My child suffers from childhood nephrotic syndrome, I’ve been trying to find alternative treatments/medicines as the medicines she is currently on are quite toxic. I’ve come across a few news articles in regards to a child being treated for this same condition with cannabis oil. Her condition has been kept the same and not improved and I’m hoping cannabis oil can help with that. My question is what strain or mixture of cannabis oil would be best for this ? How do you dose a 7 year old? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

      Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Hemp is the health, wealth and security of this country”. During World War II, the U.S. Department of Agriculture had a “hemp for victory” campaign to encourage farmers to grow the plant. Yet illogical fears about the dangers of marijuana led to the passage of laws such as the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937 and the Controlled Substance Act of 1970 that severely discouraged farmers from growing hemp. On this episode of Let’s Be Blunt, Montel talks with Matthew Harmon, the author of “Marijuana Hater’s Guide to Making a Billion Dollars From Hemp”. Matthew is a seasoned real estate executive with a sharp eye for viable commercial and retail business ventures. When California decriminalized cannabis, business opportunities increased as prospective tenants took advantage of its new status. Researching the new industry, he was shocked to learn that hemp was classified as a Schedule One controlled substance at that time, despite the fact that it contains minimal amounts of the psychotropic ingredient in cannabis and cannot be used to get high. He educated himself on industrial hemp’s historical significance, its thousands of commercial uses, and the plant’s potential to support or replace current diminishing resources, and concluded that hemp seemed a far more impactful and sustainable business investment than cannabis. That set him on a mission to expose why industrial hemp had been criminalized for decades, and to lift the illogical and arbitrary laws that left the United States with a $78 million hemp trade deficit.

      I posted this in another thread but I feel this is an important victory that has been a battle for 13 years.
      Thank You Komorn Law - for the Court of Appeals win for Medical Marijuana patients on probation to use their medicine.  Now here come the other attorneys to ruin the MRTMA law stating that it's wording is the same.  I got $100 riding that some politician is being influenced right this second to modify the law to benefit no one but the state.  There will probably be attempts to modify the MMMA Act too.  The medical I assume will be phased out soon.
      I know your law firm has been fighting for the right's of patients and caregivers since the fight to get it passed began.  I know several people you have helped secure their freedom and have recommended you guys several times. 
      Keep up the good fight.  There are those that are going to try to manipulate the MMMP and MRTMA laws for their own personal greed and fear of competition.  I know you probably get caught in the middle. Press on but don't forget about the common person who always ends up getting ripped off.

      Medical marijuana patients have had their doctor recommended use of cannabis while on probation in limbo for a long time.
      Lead trial attorney and advocate for marijuana law reform Michael Komorn and his dedicated team of attorneys (specifically Ally McCormick) secured a victory in the Michigan Court of Appeals for Medical Marijuana Patients
      As many battles for marijuana patients, caregivers and business clients represented by the Komorn Law Firm loom in the background – a decision has been made to set the tone for future cases involving those on probation.
      “The prosecution argued that the district court had the ability to place restrictions on a defendant’s medication. The district court denied defendant’s motion to modify the terms of his probation, holding that it was bound by the “Circuit Court’s decision on this issue,”
