Medical Marijuana for ADD? State Considers It

Seattle WA -- State officials will consider a request to allow medical marijuana for people with ADD and OCD, nearly two years after denying the drug to depressed and bipolar patients. The petition is the latest attempt to add a mental illness to Washington's list of qualifying conditions for medical cannabis. Three other petitions, for depression and other mental health disorders, have been denied.
Passed by voters in 1998, Washington's law allows patients with terminal or debilitating conditions to use marijuana. Qualifying conditions include cancer, HIV, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma and "intractable pain." It also includes anorexia, as a disease that results in nausea, vomiting and wasting away. The latest request involves an Edmonds man who petitioned authorities in September to include attention deficit disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder, conditions he said he has suffered from for years. The man said he had seen a psychologist regularly with little relief. He said various medications -- stimulants, depressants, anti-psychotics, anti-depressants and anti-convulsants -- have not helped. "At this point, my psychiatrist ... has recommended that I write a letter asking for an opinion on medical marijuana, as other options have been exhausted," the man wrote. The Medical Quality Assurance Commission and the Board of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery will consider the man's petition at a hearing on Jan. 11. "What they're looking for is some clinical and scientific basis for adopting it," Blake Maresh, the osteopathic board's executive director, said Tuesday.SnippedComplete Article: Seattle Post-Intelligencer (WA)Author: Vanessa Ho, StaffPublished: Tuesday, December 20, 2011 Copyright: 2011 Seattle Post-IntelligencerContact: editpage seattlepi.comWebsite: Medical Marijuana Archives

Thank you. Sassy has been here since 2002. She is a remarkable dog. She is healthy and what a wonderful disposition she has. Here is a pic of the pups at 6 weeks old. I hope your Black Shepherd (I can't remember her breed) is doing fine.

It's hard. Patience is so difficult and we've been relatively patient for a very long time. I'm chomping at the bit... and I know you are. Stay alive, strong, and healthy.This next year is probably going to be very interesting and more than a bit of a struggle. We better all buckle up. I hope we're in for a ride, slow and treacherous though it may be, to our goals.

In the Spring sounds great. The dogs will be good. The weather is rainy and starting to get cold. We are waiting until spring to pour the apron. It's just too cold. I hope we all don't have a bad winter like we did a couple of years ago.

Mrs. Green and I would love to come to visit you. We've been planning on it since you first invited us. Maybe this Spring will finally be the time?I'm happy that you and Stick are doing well. We can't wait to see your new garage. In fact, your dogs may prefer that we stay outside with the cats so that might be where we sleep. LOLBud

Oleg the Tumor #16 & #22 + Merry Christmas All ! 
Great list of well-deserved Christmas gifts for our oppressors."The for-profit corporation as we know it today, acts on society the same way a cancer cell acts in the body – relentless, mindless expansion unchecked."I've been thinking and saying the same metaphor since 1967.I had a great Christmas day: At church -
"The Word became flesh and pitched his tent among us (from a Hebrew word meaning pitch a tent)." Gospel of John. It brings a new depth to Emmanuel (God is with us). We had a great family feast and good talk and old-time Christmas music in the afternoon. Everyone seemed to have a good time, enjoyed their gifts and each other's company. We also had phone-ins from relatives at a distance. Once back home, I turned on the video and recorded Doctor Who Christmas specials all night.

Merry Christmas To the OWS Movement
Many corporations did not opt to fund an " across the board bonus" this Christmas because they need the capital to expand their operations in the southeast US, where "wage levels remain attractive", as they say.
The phrase "across the board" refers to the fact that not all of workers in the company sacrifice equally for the benefit of the corporation as a whole – if you are for example, a lawyer working for a financial services firm – you'll get a bonus.
If you are one of the administrative support staff – you do not. 
That's what "no across the board” bonus means.
The same holds true for raises and benefits.If it's not across the board it does not apply to all, by definition.People have asked for a long time now what the point of the OWS movement is.Most protests have a central focus, a specific understanding of something that they have taken specific exception to.When corporate expansion is financed at the expense of the lowest paid employees, what incentive is there to finance an education simply to join that hapless group?Self absorbed and focused on a mathematical formula to deny death, the Corporation seeks to externalize all of its costs and all of its risk.The for-profit corporation as we know it today, acts on society the same way a cancer cell acts in the body – relentless, mindless expansion unchecked. This is perhaps the point of the OWS movement. And a good one it is, I might add.(And a Merry Christmas to you too, Mr. Rockefeller)

Thank you and Merry Christmas! I appreciate this Christmas more then ever. We had a family gathering last night and my nephew who has advanced Muscular Dystrophy was able to be brought over for a few hours from the nursing home. I did a lot of video since he probably won't ever be able to do this again. Miracles happen in our lives.I believe change will happen very rapidly soon. It's another calm before the storm. I believe in miracles in all things.

Merry Christmas all.....
Hi all - just thought I would have a little word here...great list/post Oleg. Spot on with everyone. FoM that new garage you built is awesome! More like a warehouse though -- nice. Looks like you could get a lot of cars in there, or tractors etc. Very cool, congrats. I'm really looking forward to 2012 and the ballot initiatives in Michigan and California. I think maybe '12 could be the year at least one state drops this disastrous prohibition of hemp. Like the Colorado Rep said - the JOB CREATION is there and they have seen it. Washington are you listening? Still no word on the White House petition to legalize at least non-narcotic industrial hemp. More stall tactics. Man, we can't wait any longer for those new jobs. Real, new jobs. If ever a Christmas miracle for this country, it's that. Have a great 2012 coming up all and a nice Christmas today. Let's hope a new sanity reigns in America in 2012 because if the truth about this plant gets to enough people, it's an inevitability at least one rational state will stand up to this lying, hypocritical US Federal goverment. Much peace - ~gloovins~

              A Christmas Presents
"Humanity has unquestionably one really effective weapon—laughter. 
Power, money, persuasion, supplication, persecution—these can lift at a colossal humbug—push it a little—weaken it a little, century by century; but only laughter can blow it to rags and atoms at a blast. Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand." 
Mark Twain, The Mysterious Stranger, chapter 10 (1916)For all of my friends that Cannabis News: Be of good cheer and enjoy the funny things that Christmas offers up each year!There is no shortage of gifts this year because America has enough coal for hundreds of years, right?So let's dish it out!.In no particular disorder of unimportance:Dr. Goran Klintmalm, Chief of the Baylor Regional Transplant Institute and an expert in liver transplantation – a framed copy of the full Hippocratic oath - apparently he's been using the Readers' Digest Condensed version.Dr. Jeffrey Crippin, former president of the American Society of Transplantation and medical director at Washington University in St. Louis. – A lovely set of former presidential credentials, emeritus emblems and the "bedside manner" version of "Death of a Salesman". That, and a hobby. Hint – St. Louis? How about Beer History 101!Cedars-Sinai spokeswoman Sally Stuart – a Junior medical license. DAYLIGHT USE ONLY. Must be accompanied by a real doctor after local sunset. That and a flashlight.Jose Huizar, Los Angeles City Councilman –a full body condom to keep from coming into contact with – anything..
Washington state Gov. Christine Gregoire – Vermont Gov. Pete Shumlin Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chaffee –the "Mary Jane Leaf on the Red Cross" pin, for courage in the year ahead. Their dignity and self-respect is intact. A few short years ago, these people would have been shouted down and given bad seats at all of the rubber chicken dinners they're expected to show up at..John McKay, former federal prosecutor from Seattle –this fine man deserves the prize job of "interviewing" Fed strongman Ben S. Bernanke to find out where the hell all of our money went.
They can have the conversation down at the new Water Board Ride being set up in Lafayette Park, across from the White House..For Mercer Island Police Chief Ed "You Don't Smoke It with Your Burger" Holmes, – A copy of – "The Smoker You Drink – the Player You Get", by Joe Walsh. 
That and a 5 gallon Jerry can of mouthwash.For R. Gil Kerlikowske – The Federal Drug Czar, Agent Sabet, and all the rest of their gargoyles –Eight weeks of chemo therapy, Dutch Treat, (just to know what it's like) and to show that there's no hard feelings, they also get the King Crimson classic, "Thela Hun Gingeet" as a ring tone for all their cell phones.  A perfect gift for the "on the go G-man"! (He held a gun in his hand… It was a dangerous place…)Michigan Atty. Gen. Bill Schuette, who advised police officers, "don't be a pusher, don't give them their pot back". – A huge "Bad Cop – No Donut" sticker for his bulletproof SUV.Michele M. Leonhart, head of the DEA –she'll be getting plenty of time to write her memoir, "Mandamus Ignoramus (or Beyond the Event Horizon in a Comfy Chair)" now that she's outlived her usefulness and is apparently the last one to know. She receives the "Spiro Agnew Award" for "Best traveling salesman and mouthpiece in place of a clueless administration". This year the award consists of a set of Mickey Mouse ears for a Mickey Mouse job well done.Eric Holder, US Atty. Gen. – A copy of that old country-western classic, "I'd Rather Be a Drunken Cowboy in the Laredo City Jail than King, Queen and Jack of the whole D – O – J Ranch" also a framed copy of the Logan Act, for reasons that remain obvious."The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write – but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn." – Alvin TofflerBarack Obama, President of the United States –a full-color calendar and Necrology from "Patients Out of Time", complete with pictures of all those people who have passed on since Mr. Obama's election. He also gets a master carton of Double Stuffed Oreos and his own copy of the film "A Perfect Storm", (so he can eventually figure out what happened to his Presidency) also an empty bottle of "Plan B". If Kentucky native George Clooney can't make it over that wave, what chance does a city slicker who works from the poop deck have?Speaking of The State of Kentucky – they deserve their Hemp industry back. Over 100 years of proud service to the US Navy went up in smoke when the hemp industry was destroyed in the 1930s to keep America addicted to Dollar denominated petroleum, and only Rockefellers pharmaceuticals.
If GM and Ford can receive millions in compensation for factories destroyed by allied bombing in World War II as late as the 1960s, then the state of Kentucky and (a fancy pants lawyer might point out) the heirs to those who suffered losses when the hemp industry was destroyed should be able to claim compensation for their losses during the "War on Drugs".Carmen Trutanich, LA city attorney, who doesn't say so, but apparently has no problem with a pharmacy within 600 feet of a school – though pharmaceuticals continue to be the most abused substances in America, she gets –The Gilded Pill – Big Pharma's Industry Award for those who really understand substance-abuse.Asha Greenberg, LA assistant city attorney, "… there could be others that are within 600 feet of schools" – a 600 foot hempen whip to defend her old school…Benjamin B Wagner, US attorney in Sacramento – ("a lot of the medical marijuana stores that claim to be nonprofit are making lots of money" 11/23) –He gets a full list of the nonprofit organizations that work with various think tanks, "industry groups", political associations, etc. along with pictures of their rides (they say "Bay-Em-Vay", and they get out of the way)Nora “Bad Indicator” Volkow, Dir. Nat. Inst. On Drug Abuse – a badly – needed night of carpet – tearing, wallpaper – ripping, bed – breaking sex with her husband or somebody, anybody – just to reset that bad indicator. AND A SPECIAL PLACE HAS BEEN SET UP UNDER THE TREE FOR ALL THE AMERICAN BILDERBERGERS!Seen at one or more of their "Monopoly Championships and Peasant Roast" held each year:TEXAS GOVERNOR AND PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE RICK PERRY, – He gets a classic James Earl Jones-caliber “BWOOAAAHAA!” voice over, whenever they mention his name – just until he stands down. That and a DVD of "The Dead Zone". – So he can study how Martin Sheen plays the role…FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON & HILLARY CLINTON – SECRETARY OF STATE – These two get the "Bonnie and Clyde" award for being a "happily married couple" within the New World Order. (Hey, Family Values still have a part in the NWO, you know!) 
This year the award consists of two pieces of cake from the "Marie Antoinette Collection."But wait there's more! We cannot forget a kind Christmas mention to the following hard-working and highly paid Civil Servants:TIMOTHY GEITHNER – TREASURY SECRETARYPAUL VOLCKER – ECONOMIC RECOVERY ADVISORY BOARDLAWRENCE SUMMERS – NATIONAL ECONOMIC COUNCILJOSEPH BIDEN – VICE PRESIDENTBILL RICHARDSON – COMMERCE SECRETARYROBERT GATES – DEFENSE SECRETARYTOM DASCHLE – HEALTH SECRETARYGEN. JAMES L. JONES – NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOREach of the above named prominent people deserve a full spread of color eight by tens, 5 x 7's and enough wallet sizes for all of their children and grandchildren – documenting their attendance at the various Bilderberg Company Picnics over the years. That along with a framed copy of the Logan Act to flaunt at the American Taxpayer ought to do it.
Personally, I would like to come to terms with these people. Terms of about 25 to 40 years each sounds about right."However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results." – Sir Winston Churchill
British politician (1874 - 1965)And how about the Bush family? They may not be happy with their recent purchase, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, and might be looking for a refund. 
Sorry, no refunds without a receipt! No exceptions. But the Bush family will not go ignored this Christmas, it just wouldn't be right.In memory of Prescott Bush – Two copies of that wonderful picture of Himself with Adolf Hitler, appropriately matted and framed, for the presidential libraries of both his son, George the H and grandson, George the W. Very tasteful.
The Bush family will not actually receive what they really deserve this Christmas.
But every child should have a toy at Christmas time, so for George W, we have a fine copy of the Thyssen–Dutch Shell game to keep the boy busy through the winter.
It's an asset transfer guessing game that the Bush family has traditionally played for years and proudly passes on from father to son. This edition features shells made of ivory studded with "King Leopold" blood diamonds!For Rep. Ron Paul, – all this man deserves is a meeting –
– with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court on a freezing cold day in January, 2013, in front of God and everybody, to take the oath of office as the next President of the United States. Merry Christmas Dr.! America needs a new can of whupass!.And for you, all of my friends at Cannabis News: A CALL TO YOUR WITS! Satire and humor is our most effective weapon. May your wits be sharpened, your words pointed for the battle ahead.As Alex Jones says in his documentary “Endgame":, – through a bullhorn at all the Bilderbergers in Ottawa Canada:
	"The answer to 1984 is 1776!"To that I add my own barbaric yawp: "The answer to the Bilderberg Bismarck is The US Constitution which still stands ready to trade broadsides with any other Ship of State, legitimate or otherwise, when attacked! Old Ironsides can still speak for itself"But it is our language that is our greatest offensive weapon.(Anyone who has ever made a fool of himself knows this)And there is none other like English – for it, like our culture, has been created by drawing from all the rest.Therefore we have a perspective, an edge, not available to the others. English language satirists have a tradition of holding the Fools feet to the fire. Inspired by the likes of Jonathan Swift, Charles Dickens, Henry David Thoreau, Mark Twain, Edgar Allen Poe, Samuel Coleridge, Thomas Paine, Lucille Ball, Lewis Carol, Thomas Nast, Phyllis Diller, Ambrose Bierce, Oscar Wilde, Winston Churchill, Soupy Sales, Redd Foxx, Carol Burnett, Upton Sinclair, Carol Channing, George Burns, Gracie Allen, Henny Youngman , Shelley Berman, Rob Reiner, Carl Reiner, O Henry, WC Fields, Carol Channing, Bing Crosby, Steve Allen, Jim Neighbors, Jack Parr, The Marx Brothers, Will Rogers, Jack Benny, HL Mencken, PG Wodehouse, Cheech and Chong, Dorothy Parker, Kurt Vonnegut, Bob Hope, Phil Silvers, Sally Field, Milton Berle, Douglas Adams, Peter Sellers, Chaucer (English 1.0 maybe, but it's still English), Ralph Waldo Emerson, Satchel Paige, Flip Wilson, Jon Stuart, The Firesign Theater (Papoon for President – He's Not Insane!), The Martian Space Party, Mel Brooks, Mike Nichols and Elaine May, Andy Rooney, Cleveland Amory , Yogi Berra, Alan Arkin, Bette Midler, Hal Roach, Mae West, Lenny Bruce, Joseph Heller, Will Ferrell, Richard Pryor, Stanley Kubrick, Tom Lehrer, Muhammad Ali, Dick Cavett, Paul Lynde, Casey Stengel, (whose congressional testimony in the 1950s remains a landmark in the history of rhetoric and should be required high school reading ) Mickey Mantle (who batted right after the old professor at the same hearings and knocked one into the upper deck simply by saying "my views are the same as Mr. Stengel's") Martin Luther King Jr., Diane Keaton, Edward R Murrow, Monty Python, The Improv, Pat Paulsen (who probably could've beaten Adlai Stephenson or Harold Stassen head-on head), Tom Wolfe, Johnny Carson, Hunter S Thompson, Art Buchwald, Woody Allen, Dick Gregory, The Smothers Brothers, Dan Rowan, Dick Martin and the cast of Laugh-in, SNL, Mad Magazine, Weird Al Yankovic, The Blues Brothers, Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, George Carlin (the modern Paul Revere), Stephen Colbert, Trey Parker, Matt Stone, Lewis Black and so many others it isn't even funny. A pretty formidable bunch, all in all. I do not mention the deity out of respect. 
Except to say "Happy Birthday"! He did not cause the present problems facing America.
His time is His own. He sees the end from the beginning and does all things well.Our language and what it allows us to invent is our legacy. It is, to be sure, an imperfect culture we draw from, yet it is sufficient for our purpose as no one has come up with anything better by way of governance. We are, after all, like the bumper sticker says, "spiritual creatures having a physical experience" not the other away around.Then let them have it, all of it, the whole 9 yards of your First Amendment Rights!The Election Season Is Now Officially Open!Don't fire until you see the black and white of their lies!No limit.  Bag ‘em as you see 'em.Don't forget to share this with someone, it's Christmas!
Happy hunting to all, and to all a good night!

Merry Christmas BGreen and Everyone
On this Christmas Day I am reminded of the value of all that is part of our lives. The world out there is crazy and full of people that would use us and then discard us but those we love always are there to stand by our side and that is the most precious gift of all. This Christmas my husband got his life long dream of having his own garage and it has been wonderful watching him see his dream be built. Here are the pictures we took of the construction. We only have 2 more things to do. One is to pour the apron and the other is bring more gravel in by the garage. The last part of 2011 has been the best time of our 38 years being together. Miracles do happen.

Merry Christmas Everybody!
My life has been a roller coaster lately. I've been screwed over by so many people, some I thought were close friends, but my wife stands by my side so I'm doing well. I've spent two years and hundreds of hours I'll never get back just to be pretty much in the same spot I was when I started. Once again, when everything looked like it was going great it all came screeching to a stop.However, how many people can say they've struggled through three decades of "almost" reaching their dreams with one mate standing by them the whole journey, who believes in them more today than ever? Mrs. Green has seen how others have screwed me over. She knows it's not me. She knows what happened to me over the past two years is just a continuation of the previous 28. She's not stupid, delusional or desperate so if we both believe and see the same things I know we're right.I have finally decided that we can't rely on anybody else to make our music dream happen. The only way for us to be successful is to make music as a duet.I have one beautiful person I can depend on and that has to be enough. That is enough.I'm sorry I've ignored you all so much. I've wasted so much time trying to hire musicians (yet communicating with the dregs of society off of Craigslist) that I began to hate people. Most musicians are impostors. They may play an instrument to some extent but most musicians are lazy, lying, money whores. They demand to be paid yet want to fake their way through your show and I'd rather quit than fake anything or pay some loser to fake anything.I need to spend more time on CNews where I actually like my friends. :)The Reverend Bud Green

About the liver transplant patient- 
It becomes very ironic that they are denying him the transplant in light of this recent study- Targeting cannabinoid receptors as a novel approach in the treatment of graft-versus-host disease: Evidence from an experimental murine model. (full – 2011) = Graft Versus Host Disease, the rejection of implanted organs)"In summary, the data presented here demonstrate that THC may be an effective drug in the prevention and treatment of GVHD. Our studies open up new avenues to explore cannabinoid receptor targeting as a novel therapeutic approach to treat GVHD".To put it simply, THC helps prevent rejection of transplanted organs!

Aussies are great dogs. If I didn't have rottweilers that would be a breed I would like to have. The mud is really bad. I just got done cleaning and it's dust from the dogs that is really bad. A deep freeze should be starting soon here and I am sure in Montana. We built a mud room where the dogs stay until they are dry and can come in the house. We soon will have 3 rotties. We already named her. We named her Sunny. We also have a very old sweet husky type dog that is a doll. Here's a picture of Sunny at 4 weeks old taken a few days ago by the breeder. We will pick her up when she is 8 weeks old.

Thanks FoM!!! I hope you and yours the BEST this holiday season! The winter solstice is over and the days are getting longer. I never paid much attention to the days, unless it was in the summer as a kid, until I lived here in Montana!

["Medical marijuana adds crimp to liver transplant eligibility,", Dec. 17.] The rejection was based on his use of approved medical marijuana. It might help everyone to know that evidence seems to show that hepatitis C patients progress three to four times as rapidly to cirrhosis, and then to liver cancer, when smoking marijuana.
