Weed on Wheels is Sign of Acceptance

San Jose, Calif. -- David Goldman has a chronic headache, but help is on the way. A driver arrives at his apartment, checks Goldman's ID card, then hands over a small bag of marijuana."It's really nice to have the convenience of delivery," said Goldman, a retired teacher who orders medicinal marijuana about once a week from The Green Cross, a medical marijuana delivery service. "I trust their product, and their prices are competitive."
As Californians consider legalizing marijuana, The Green Cross in San Francisco is a signal of just how mainstream pot has become. In some ways, the medical marijuana dispensary is just like any other retail business: It takes credit cards, it's reviewed on Yelp and it promises delivery within an hour -- there's even a $10 discount if the pot is late.Since 1996, when California voters passed Proposition 215, medical marijuana has moved steadily toward mainstream acceptance.Thirteen states, including Maine, Michigan, Montana and New Mexico, have passed laws allowing seriously ill patients access to it.The Green Cross operates out of founder Kevin Reed's apartment. Here, 19 employees bake brownies and other "edibles" and assemble orders from a changing menu of more than 40 strains of marijuana (an ounce is $310)."Delivery is key because some of our patients literally cannot get out of their beds," Reed said. "It's like hot pizza to me: Once an order is in, you've got to get it out the door in 20 minutes."Source: Chicago Tribune (IL)Author: Dana Hull, McClatchy - Tribune News Published: July 9, 2009Copyright: 2009 Chicago Tribune CompanyContact: ctc-TribLetter Tribune.comWebsite: http://www.chicagotribune.com/URL: http://drugsense.org/url/9XT4ahCRCannabisNews Medical Marijuana Archiveshttp://cannabisnews.com/news/list/medical.shtml

Lynch
I figured he would veto it. Got to give the legislature credit. They bent over backwards trying to please Lynch. Lynch is a hopeless case, determined to block progress in the area of even medical use. I hope this is Lynch's last term so they can eventually get some relief up there.

comment 15
Mingled in with other videos at the Today site are two more I found interesting. One was done on July 8. It was that Dr. Nancy interviewing a Dr. Carter from Seattle, that believes medical cannabis is helpful in treating ALS, another Doctor/Professor that is an addiction specialist and Barry McCaffrey. Dr. Nancy gets on McCaffrey's wrong side. That Dr. Carter is a realistic, compassionate, caring doctor.There is another video about a drugstore giving away candy in prescription bottles! Wow! They thought it was a good promotional idea.I had to watch the video with MPP's Aaron Houston several times. He was so well spoken. Marvelously so. Thank you, Mr. Houston. Thank you MPP.

NH: Gov. Lynch vetoes med mj compromise bill
http://www.nashuatelegraph.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20090710/NEWSBLOG/907109853/-1/XML15`I understand and empathize with the advocates for allowing medical marijuana use in New Hampshire. However, the fact remains that marijuana use for any purpose remains illegal under federal law. Therefore, if we are to allow its use in New Hampshire for medical purposes, we must ensure that we are implementing the right policy, Lynch said in his veto statement.

An enlightening article by Paul Armentano
http://www.cannabisculture.com/v2/content/study-debunks-claim-pot-smoking-causes-mental-illnessand it's about this...http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19560900Hmmm. Didn't get so much "Trumpeting" by the MSM that the first and apparently wrong study did that got all up in the air about a causative connection between cannabis and schizophrenia.Hmmm.

You heard what she said at the end...
This discussion is 'just starting' or this discussion 'is not over'...Interesting.Sounds good to me.I hope this sees a lot of play. It's good.A. Barthwell obviously didn't work with or, perhaps, spurned constructive conversation with Dr. Russo at that company they both worked for ... maybe. I wonder if she's ever looked closely at any of his research?Anyway... She looks well. She's very blessed in that.I hope Dr. Russo is well.

We were beautifully represented.That MSNBC doctor sounded pretty unbiased until she compared the smoke of a burning house to the smoke of burning marijuana.Oh my gosh...DUH!!!Burning plastics, fiberglass and God knows what?

What is so strange to me is I expect them to listen now. I don't think they really want to ignore us anymore. We are a part of a special culture. We span many years and have different beliefs but they know we are intelligent, serious and yes like to laugh and be generally kind to others. We aren't as threatening to them. It is a good feeling.

I thought it was interesting how the cannabis ads were deemed a news item and broadcast nationally on the Today show.

What is state smoking?
What is state smoking?http://www.denverpost.com/headlines/ci_12789940On good days, Jason Young walks with a cane or uses a wheelchair. On bad ones, he can't get out of bed. "The pain overwhelms me without something to take care of it," says the 33-year-old multiple sclerosis patient from Denver. At first, he treated his muscle spasms with prescribed Percocet, which made him drool. Then he switched to Vicodin, which made him dumb. Finally, Young turned to a different treatment  daily fixes of high-grade marijuana. Now he's having more good days than bad. "The law works," he says. "The state is trying to fix a policy that isn't broken." CONT.

Comment 9, Runruff...
Not sure what you were saying... but I thought for a second you were describing yourself. And I thought "What?" After having said, "I'm right beside you" about a comment you made (I woke up feeling the "War" and "Battle" and "Bros. at arms" feeling)... maybe I ought to step away to the side a step or two.:0)I am assuming you are referring to the Governator... but I'm not completely sure what you're saying. You're not THAT predictable!

Welcome to C-News, by the way. I went to bed angry the night before and woke up in a foul mood yesterday morning, so at your first appearance, when you figuratively walked through the figurative door, I wasn't very polite. I apologize... and welcome.Your input is appreciated.

No that isn't political. That's a concern. The world is getting angry and we should be aware. I feel something could break loose at any time and I wouldn't be surprised unfortunately.

May I say something that many

Gov. Schwarzenegger: Marijuana Question
Transcript of Gov. Schwarzenegger Discussing CalWORKs Program Reform ProposalJuly 9, 2009QUESTION: Governor, on the budget itself, as you know, the marijuana -- sorry. The Marijuana Policy Project is running TV ads up and down the state, essentially saying if we were to legalize and tax marijuana it would be at least a partial solution. I know you've said in the past it's worth talking about but does the idea itself have merit? What's your view?GOVERNOR: I'm a strong believer, when it comes to marijuana, that the current laws ought to stay in place. But I also said that I'm always interested in having dialogue about new ideas. And so that's where I am still today. I think that we must protect the current laws and I don't think that we ought to go and, because we could make a few dollars, that we ought to change the law just because of financial reasons.Complete Transcript: http://newsblaze.com/story/20090709054701zzzz.nb/topstory.html

If you aren't familiar with DrugSense you can read a little about them. Without DrugSense and Matt Elrod and Observer this web site wouldn't be here. I respect their position and appreciate their help. When there is a problem Matt works quickly to fix it and that is why we have a good and stable forum.http://www.drugsense.org/mission.htm

User Guidelines
I apologize if I overstepped the guidelines of this website. I was unaware that this was a non-political website, even though the reform of cannabis laws is clearly a political issue. Perhaps making this clear in the Registration Guidelines would have prevented my intrusive comments. 
Please forgive this trespass.
