Medical Marijuana

SALT LAKE - Utah advocates for medicinal marijuana now have a major name to go along with a major fight. Sitting down with Fox 13's Bob Evans during a 3 Questions segment, Jon Huntsman Sr. didn't hold back his support.

"I'm a very strong advocate for medical marijuana," Huntsman Sr. said. "I think some folks have it terribly confused with smoking marijuana."

Huntsman said his support comes from his own needs. For the past 10 years, Huntsman has suffered from Polymyalgia Rheumatica, a disorder that can cause severe shoulder and hip-joint pain.

He's also a four-time cancer survivor.

"I won't take the opioids, I'll take the pain," Huntsman said of the current treatments.

He said the constipation, and the possibility of kidney or bladder failure, turned him away from opioids entirely.

"It's really severe pain," he said. "Sometimes you just want to scream out at night because of joints not working and things just breaking down on you."

The Utah Patients Coalition is currently pushing for a ballot initiative that would get medicinal marijuana on the 2018 Election ballot. It's an effort that would require 115,000 signatures.

Many believe The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints could weigh heavy on Utah voters' minds when that time comes. In the past, the LDS Church has supported bills to launch studies into medicinal marijuana, but when it comes to legalizing it, they've shied away from an endorsement, instead saying they will wait for FDA approval.

Asked outright if he has tried medicinal marijuana, Hunstman replied, "No, I haven't."

A follow-up question asked if Huntsman would like to try it. He replied, "Sure, I'd love to. I've had such severe pain at times and the opioids haven't done the job."

Many banks won't have anything to do with legal pot business

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Billions of dollars are expected to flow through California's legitimate marijuana industry next year when recreational pot becomes legal, but most of those businesses won't be able to use banks.

The reason: Many banks don't want anything to do with pot money for fear it could expose them to legal trouble from the federal government, which still lists marijuana as illegal - and regulates the banking industry. There is particular uncertainty over how the Trump administration will react.

Because of those fears, pot dispensary operators in the 29 states where the drug is legal, either for medical or recreational purposes, often find themselves nervously handling obscene amounts of cash.

Cannabis beats “incurable” brain tumor after chemo fails

(Natural News) A Scottish woman given just months to live back in 2013 claims that she has cannabis oil to thank for the fact that she has been in remission for nearly four years. After being diagnosed with an incurable brain tumor, Lynn Cameron was subjected to the usual assault of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments, but to no avail – scans revealed no change, and doctors gave her between six and 18 months to live.

In desperation, Lynn eliminated sugar and processed foods from her diet (which was the best thing she could have done), and started researching alternative treatments. Initially skeptical about the healing powers of cannabis oil but feeling that she had nothing to lose, Lynn decided to give it a shot. Her results were nothing short of miraculous.

The Daily Mail recently reported that after suffering a sudden seizure in November 2013, Lynn was rushed to Glasgow’s Southern General Hospital, where it was determined that she had a brain tumor; she was scheduled for surgery on December 16. The surgery was not a success, however, and doctors informed her that they had been unable to get the tumor out in its entirety, that her cancer was at stage 4, and that she was terminal. (Related: Learn more about cancer prevention and treatment and all the latest medical breakthroughs at Oncology.news.)

Though she initially tried conventional treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation, when nothing else worked, Lynn overcame her earlier skepticism and decided to try cannabis oil.

Lynn ensured that the cannabis oil quickly and effectively entered her bloodstream by placing the drops directly under her tongue.

One way the New World Order people and so called progressives intend to eliminate God from our lives is to make His creations illegal. While man does not have the authority to make God's creations illegal, they do it anyway.

It wasn't until the "pot heads" of the 1960s became the age group in power around the world that some of the lies about cannabis began to unravel. With the full knowledge that the government was simply a liar and a thief enabling Big Pharma to kill us and get rich doing it, the truth began to come out about the amazing properties of cannabis. As more states began legalizing God's plants, research that was banned for decades revealed that cannabis is actually one of God's best efforts.

It pisses cops off that have devoted their entire lives to fighting against God. God created cannabis for our benefit.

There are literally thousands of stories where cannabis has helped and even saved lives. Satanists do not want cannabis legalized across the board because they feel that if people are allowed to use God's plants for health purposes that next people may want to improve the rest of their lives by following the Constitution that was inspired by God.

Here is a short video that like hundreds of thousands of others should be recognized as truth.

Recreational Marijuana

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... rolls-ahead

California grows 13.5 million pounds of marijuana annually; less than 20 percent of it is consumed there. Growers may have to downsize as new rules ban out-of-state exports. If California’s markets open in January and many existing growers are left out, tax revenue could fall short, and a robust black market will persist. To become legal, marijuana businesses have to secure building permits and water rights and establish record-keeping protocols unfamiliar to an industry that’s long operated in the shadows.

Early difficulties are common for recreational marijuana. Nevada faced product shortages when its markets opened in July 2017. Alaska’s first year brought in $1.2 million in tax revenue, short of a projected $2 million. Colorado and Washington both took in less tax revenue than expected in their first year, but revenue has grown every year since and now exceeds projections. Colorado’s effective tax rate is around 30 percent, and Washington has a flat rate of 37 percent. Joseph Bishop-Henchman of the Tax Foundation says these relatively high taxes have allowed a significant black market to persist by making legal pot expensive. States that have legalized more recently have set the rate lower. In Oregon, it’s 17 percent. Maine and Massachusetts have proposed rates of about 20 percent, while California is planning for a 15 percent levy. There isn’t enough data to measure the impact of lower taxes, but Maine state Senator Teresa Pierce believes that Maine will “hit a sweet spot” and be able to undercut black market prices.
