A Supervisor Jeff Stone who attended the fourth Annual National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics gave very positive views on the medical value of marijuana. But then he attended presentations by doctors and gave a very thorough consideration to the academic researches and changed his mind.
He also had a conversation with some of the patients. A pharmacist, who had first opposed giving license to dispensaries, now was in total favor to allow them. According to Jeff, cannabis has medical value. He wants medical marijuana to be legitimated.
Observing this change in stones views was impressive for some of the advocates who fight for legitimating medical marijuana. These advocates believe that stone being a scientist is thinking like a scientist. He is considering the facts and is going to apply them to more people. His new views regarding the issue have been a great help in allowing marijuana dispensaries. Long beach medical cinnabis are now working as a model for other cities fighting with the same issue.
In California, patients were allowed to use medical marijuana only on the prescription of a doctor. In 2003, this law was implemented. According to the law the countries should issue identification cards to patients that will allow the patients who of course are recognized by the identification card at the pharmacy stores to buy marijuana containing medicines. But by federal law, it is still illegal. These regulations state the non profit organizations. Collectives are still illegal under the federal law. But dispensaries would not be raided. Managers and dispensary owners are in favor of these regulations. No action in the city causes more problems than the teens taking marijuana for getting high in parties or at homes. Regulations make collectives legitimate.
Medical marijuana’s been observed to ease the pain for people suffering from HIV/AIDS, cancer, lupus, glaucoma, and rheumatoid arthritis. People have taken permissions to smoke marijuana for medical purposes. They can also cultivate marijuana plants. Even the caregivers have been approved to give marijuana and treat their patients. However, their use should be very carefully considered. There are strict laws to check its use or misuse. Some people have even been charged against use of this cannabis. Some of these people don’t realize unless they are under certain offences. It is only after they are offended under law, they realize that were into an illegal act of taking marijuana without seeking Doctor’s recommendation.
