PA Medical marijuana

Discussion in 'Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications' started by neve72, Apr 30, 2009.

  1. Has Pennsylvania had any activity with MMJ ? I mean PA seems to be very strict with marijuana. If anybody has any info please let me know.
  2. definitely check out the norml website. PA in fact is trying right now for medical.
  3. nice.. I have depression and i hear that is definitely a good reason to get a mmj card ?

  4. Thats mostly in the more liberal states, like California. Right now, I think the concentration is more about getting it medically legal for more debilitaing illnesses like AIDS, cancer, chrons, and chronic injuries to get the movement off the ground.
  5. That is correct.
  6. PA is a commonwealth.

    A bit more socialist than other states.

    And totally against marijuana, mmj or otherwise.

    Unless there is a change on a federal level ,do not expect much to come out of Pennsylvania regarding relaxing it's political/medical view of marijuana.

    I know Pitt and Penn State both teach totally incorrect information regarding marijuana. They pretty much teach a DARE view of drugs in general.:(
  7. wow. That sucks also i remember i was watching busted on mtv and a guy got caught eating weed to hide it and mtv said at the end that eating marijuana is a bigger risk of having an overdose.... I stared at the screen in aww for about 20 min. what bullshit.
  8. i saw that same exact episode and stared in disbelief as well hahaha.
  9. Dont know if its already happened but State Rep. Mark Cohen is going to push a bill for the legalization of medical MJ for the state that would be modeled after the New Jersey law. Its suppose to be put up sometime this month so keep your fingers crossed

  10. They introduced the bill on Wednesday!

    cancer, glaucoma, positive status for human
    immunodeficiency virus, acquired immune deficiency syndrome
    or the treatment of these conditions;
    a chronic or debilitating disease or medical
    condition or its treatment that produces one or more of the
    following: cachexia or wasting syndrome; severe or chronic
    pain; severe nausea; seizures, including, but not limited to,
    those characteristic of epilepsy; severe and persistent
    muscle spasms, including, but not limited to, those
    characteristic of multiple sclerosis or Crohn's disease; or
    any other weakening medical condition or its
    treatment that is recognized by licensed medical authorities
    as being treatable with marijuana in a manner that is
    superior to treatment without marijuana.

    Regular Session 2009-2010 House Bill 1393 P.N. 1714

  11. i agree, i've been following this bill very closely. god bless mark cohen for having the good sense to give at least the pennsylvanian economy a boost.
  12. What do you mean about giving a DARE view of drugs? It's not like the university has much say in personal lives. I know three kids that got caught dealing there and only got cited for disorderly, they're pretty cool with it.
  13. "Pennsylvania: Finally, NORML is thrilled to announce that Rep. Mark Cohen (D-Philadelphia), along with six co-sponsors, introduced legislation today to make Pennsylvania the fourteenth state to legalize the physician-supervised use of cannabis. As introduced - House Bill 1393, The Barry Busch Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act of 2009 - would allow state-authorized patients to possess and cultivate cannabis for therapeutic purposes. The measure also seeks to allow for the state-licensed distribution and sale of medical marijuana by authorized ‘compassion centers. For several months, Philly NORML has worked behind the scenes with Rep. Cohen's staff to draft this important legislation, which you can read about here. If you live in Pennsylvania, you can support this effort by going here."

  14. The bottom of house bill 1393 states:

    This act shall take effect in 90 days.

    Read the text of the bill at LINK
  15. We shall see, also what needs to be taken into consideration is that mmj would only be available for pretty serious diseases.
