    SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - April 15, 2016) - Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC PINK: MJNA) recognizes and applauds the significant accomplishment of Pennsylvania as the 24th U.S. state or district that is set to allow access to medical cannabis (marijuana). News reports indicate that the Governor will sign the bill on Sunday. Including U.S. territories Puerto Rico and Guam as well as the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania's milestone achievement translates to more than 50% of all U.S. locations and 51.26% of the U.S. population with full-spectrum medical cannabis laws enacted.

    U.S. States & District of Columbia Population 321,418,820

    Puerto Rico 3,474,182

    Guam 169,861

    Total U.S. states, district, territories population 325,062,863

    Total U.S. population with medical marijuana laws 166,632,385

    Percent U.S. population with medical marijuana access 51.26%

    (Statistics from: U.S. Census 2015 Population, ProCon.org)

    In addition, there are 16 U.S. states with limited medical cannabis access laws enacted. This brings the total of all U.S. states, district or territories with some form of cannabis law to 32.

    "It is clear that cannabis has reached the tipping point in the minds of the U.S. population," states Dr. Stuart Titus, Chief Executive Officer of MJNA. "With the re-introduction of cannabis as a wellness option, residents of Pennsylvania will soon have the ability to choose from natural products, pharmaceuticals or a combination of both."

    The Center for Disease Control (CDC) website states, "At least half of all opioid overdose deaths involve a prescription opioid." Data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) also states, "Prescription drug abuse in the U.S. is the fastest-growing drug problem."
    In contrast, a NORML article explains that in a study published online in The American Journal on Addictions, investigators at the Farber Institute for Neurosciences at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia assessed the use of cannabis in 91 opiate-dependent subjects undergoing methadone maintenance treatment. Researchers found that subjects seeking methadone treatment who acknowledged a history of cannabis use reported "significantly less daily expenditure on acquisition of opiates."

    Titus continues, "The power to choose is critical. With prescription opioid abuse and deaths on the rise and now listed as the country's No. 1 epidemic, research proves that, in states with legalized medical cannabis access, there are 25 percent fewer deaths from prescription drug overdoses."

    "Also noteworthy in many medical-marijuana-legal states is that we are now seeing an expansion of the number of potential allowable indications for doctors to recommend medicinal cannabis to patients. In Pennsylvania, as many as 18 medical conditions are slated to be allowed under this progressive program, potentially allowing access for a significant number of Pennsylvania state residents," concludes Titus.

    Pennsylvania's SB3 explains qualified medical conditions as: "Patients could qualify for medical cannabis if they have a terminal illness or if they suffer from cancer, HIV/AIDS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, inflammatory bowel disease, neuropathies, Huntington's disease, Crohn's disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, intractable seizures, glaucoma, autism, sickle cell anemia, damage to the nervous tissue of the spinal cord with objective neurological indication of intractable spasticity, and severe chronic or intractable pain of neuropathic origin, or if conventional therapeutic intervention and opiate therapy is contraindicated or ineffective."

    The 24 MMJ states and DC hold 51.26% of our nations population. When will our government realize just how ridiculous they will look when over half the states, and well over half the population, have legal medical use, while the government steadfastly denies that cannabis has medical uses! And doing it while holding a patent on medical uses -

    AND our government also runs a decades-old FEDERAL MEDICAL MARIJUANA PROGRAM while claiming cannabis has no medical uses! Talk about utter hypocrisy! <_<

    How about joining me in being an activist? Comment in a few news articles, maybe even mail an abstract or two to your doctor (anonymously?). It's time to end cannabis prohibition! :cop:

  2. Hey Granny I used to use gc years ago ,forgot my login. I remember you back from 2006, you been an activist for years now, what do I gotta do to actually make change.I'm in NJ and am fed up with the lack of protest or activism.
  3. MPP just reported the governor signed the bill into law.

    25 farmers

    50 dispensary operators allowing three separate dispensing locations each.

    oils, pills, vaping, no smoking.

    Qualifying conditions limited, but hey, it's a step.

  5. Not much more to say. Mmj is a scam Imo... If you're going to have mmj or the only way to legally get pot is going to be through mmj and not legalization than we need to make any condition acceptable... Growing.... Which ever method of using your meds should be allowed. Yes PA MMJ is a "victory" but not really. NJ has MMJ, it's ducking broken. Allow citizens access, allow growing. Bob the plumber can brew his own beer to in his garage to get drunk but I can't grow MMJ that gives me a significantly higher standard o lliving. Means I can hold a job, no worrying about unemployment or disability. I'd have $ to throw into the economy.... But hey. That doesn't matter because someone like me, who can receive Government Assistance would make the government more money if I was imprisoned than them paying me forms of GA to live. Tell me the war on drugs isn't really just the throw poor people in jail who would be more valuable as an inmate behind bars than a citizen on government assistance
