As a result of using cannabis therapeutically, my health has benefited immensely. Not only the opiate medications tend to keep me, during the winter months, kind of bed ridden.
Really the reasons my life has improved are multifaceted. Some of the main areas are my health and diet has increased as the result of my therapeutic use of cannabis. Because of the research associated with cannabis, and I felt the research was right or else I would not have continued in my advocacy and activism. It has proven to be more and more true as the research continues to come out like this Patients out of time Conference.
State Senator Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) introduced legislation Thursday that would prevent California employers from discriminating against medical marijuana patients. Senate Bill 129 would not change current law, which prohibits employees from using medical marijuana at the workplace.
In the rush to regulate Colorado’s burgeoning medical marijuana distribution system, it is the privacy rights of patients in particular that have so far been either ignored or disregarded. While there are many issues that the Department of Revenue must deal with, patient privacy should be at the forefront.
An organic gardener and lifelong student of the healing properties of natural herbs, it was while working with cancer and AIDS patients that Joe first began to realize the extraordinary healing properties of cannabis. The catalyst that finally spurred Grumbine and partner Joe Byron to open a medical marijuana collective back in 2008 was the death of a close friend to brain cancer. “I saw how a few drops of cannabis tincture under his tongue provided relief where morphine failed,” says Grumbine, “and I knew others who could also benefit from this incredible healing plant.”

Then, imagine researching and realizing that there was a safer, non-addictive, non-lethal treatment that has been documented to provide dramatic results in EVERY case where it has been used.

This January, seniors from Laguna Woods, a gated retirement community in Orange County, California, were delighted to learn their local private community would be hosting a medical cannabis conference. Although the elderly were among the majority of those in attendance, the one-day medical marijuana seminar, also known as the CBD Conference, featured Dr. William Courtney and Dr. Donald Abrams, among many other prominent figures in the fight to provide accurate and relevant information to millions of Americans who would otherwise find themselves either taking prescriptions their bodies are rejecting or not taking any form of medicine because of their lack of access and insight into one of the most beneficial botanical plants on the planet.

I can actually confirm that this pot – pot holder works. I received one for Christmas and it not only works great as a pot holder, but has made sure that my Ethan Allen dining room table is free from scorches. I believe it was purchased at Urban Outfitters, although the do not have a picture of the actual “pot” holder. I tried to find other sources online to purchase, but didn’t see others. I thought I would pass along a proven product that exemplifies what we are all about!
The review states:
Long after the novelty of this aptly-named product wears off, you’ll be enjoying its quality construction and convenience.
Made of 100% Silicone. Dishwasher safe. Safe for temps up to 500°F/260°C.

At $10-$15 a bottle, the drinks don’t come cheap. Another potential issue: SB 258, a bill in Congress dubbed the “Brownie Law,” which would take aim at marijuana-related “candy” products with increased fines. Whether or not Canna Cola and its brethren would fall under the law remains to be seen. But in the meantime, pot soda is making its way here. What do you think, Brand Xers? Does Canna Cola sound like the real thing?
