cannabisnews.com: Med. Marijuana Law Expanded to Add Crohn's Disease (Article) * The list of qualifying illnesses will now be expanded to include Crohn's Disease. ... In the first test of a key provision in the new Washington State Medical Marijuana law, the Medical Quality Assurance Commission has voted to add "Crohn's Disease" to the list of qualifying illnesses allowed to use medical marijuana.

In November 1998, Washington State Voters approved Initiative 692, allowing patients with certain terminal or debilitating illnesses, under the direction of their doctor, to use marijuana to ease their suffering. The measure allowed for the addition of qualifying illnesses through petition to the Commission. Dr. Rob Killian, the primary sponsor of the initiative, was also behind this petition. "Crohn's Disease is a particularly debilitating illness, and patients have long espoused the use of marijuana to ease some its more severe symptoms," states Killian. "By adding this illness to the list, we are further safeguarding a group of patients who need protection from criminal prosecution for using a medicine that works."

The disease of the digestive tract afflicts 400,000 - 600,000 people in North America alone causing abdominal pain, diarrhea (which can be bloody), severe vomiting, weight loss, as well as secondary skin rashes, arthritis, inflammation of the eye, tiredness, and lack of concentration. Smoking pot caused a "complete remission" of Crohn's disease compared to placebo in half the patients who lit up for eight weeks, according to clinical trial data to be published the journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology."

" Study: Inhaled Cannabis Reduces Crohn’s Symptoms by Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director - May 13, 2013 | Inhaling cannabis reduces symptoms of Crohn’s disease compared to placebo in patients non-responsive to traditional therapies, according to clinical trial data published online ahead of print in the journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology. Researchers at the Meir Medical Center, Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology in Israel assessed the safety and efficacy of inhaled cannabis versus placebo in 21 subjects with Crohn’s disease who were nonresponsive to conventional treatments. Eleven participants smoked standardized cannabis cigarettes containing 23 percent THC and 0.5 percent CBD (cannabidiol) twice daily over a period of eight weeks. The other ten subjects smoked placebo cigarettes containing no active cannabinoids. Investigators reported, “Our data show that 8-weeks treatment with THC-rich cannabis, but not placebo, was associated with a significant decrease of 100 points in CDAI (Crohn’s Disease and activity index) scores.” (The CDIA is a research tool used to quantify the symptoms of Crohn’s disease patients.) Five of the eleven patients in the study group also reported achieving disease remission (defined as a reduction in patient CDAI score by more than 150 points). Researchers also reported that “no significant side effects” were associated with cannabis inhalation. Subjects in the study group reported improvements in appetite and sleep compared to those in the placebo group. Cannabis inhalation was also associated with “significantly less pain” among the participants. The study is the first placebo-controlled clinical trial to assess the consumption of cannabis for the treatment of Crohn’s. Israeli researchers had previously published observational trial data reporting that Crohn’s patients require fewer disease-related surgeries following their use of cannabis. According to survey data published in 2011 in the European Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, some one-half of Crohn’s disease patients acknowledge having used cannabis to mitigate their disease symptoms. - http://blog.norml.org/2013/05/13/study-inhaled-cannabis-reduces-crohns-symptoms/ "

" Subject: Awareness-Pending felony charges for medical marijuana

To Whom It May Concern:

I have a potentially serious problem at hand. My Domestic Partner and I recently relocated on a temporary basis from California. In the state of California, my boyfriend has been a medical marijuana patient for nearly two years for treatment of the conditions stated below. Though TN laws differ from those of CA, he has continued to follow the medical advice of his physician to protect his health by way of what we deem 'medically necessary' use of medical grade marijuana. Though he was cultivating and possessing a minimal amount of marijuana for personal and medical use only, he is pending 2 felony charges as of October 14, 2010.

He has previously been diagnosed with GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) which is a condition in which stomach contents leak backwards from the stomach into the esophagus. Due to the severity of his condition, he has also experienced pain and discomfort associated with a hiatal hernia which is where the stomach protrudes upward into the chest through the diaphragm. His symptoms are far from mild and interfere with the ability to perform simple daily functions as well as maintain a healthy diet when left untreated. His symptoms are advanced and cause nearly immediate regurgitation of food and beverage once consumed. The pain associated with this also causes shaking, sweating, fever, nausea for extended periods of time, loss of appetite, and shortness of breath.

Additionally, he has had multiple maxillofacial surgeries over the past few years, which were rather invasive, to remove a recurring cyst in his right nasal cavity. This recurring cyst is incurable and the only options available are to treat symptoms and ultimately remove it once the opening in the nasal cavity is restricted due to the space inhabited by the cyst. The cyst causes intermittent pain as a result of the surrounding tissue becoming inflamed and irritated. This results in severe sinus pressure, headaches, pain in the eye socket and drainage of fluid.

Before exploring medical Marijuana as a alternative treatment option, he has unsuccessfully and repeatedly attempted to treat these conditions with standard prescribed medications. He has been prescribed a wide variety of medications for the stomach complications which seem to worsen the symptoms rather than alleviate them. He is also unable to take pain medications and anti- inflammatory drugs to treat symptoms associated with the cyst as they induce vomiting shortly after ingestion due the severity of his GERD. His weight and health conditions fluctuate drastically, and the pain has also interfered with his attendance at work on numerous occasions.

Since becoming a medical marijuana patient, he has been able to reduce the frequency in which he suffers from GERD symptoms and it enables him to maintain a healthy diet. When using medical marijuana, the stomach irritation is nearly non- existent and it eliminates the need for multiple, ineffective, chemically manufactured pharmaceutical drugs that in turn pose a risk for additional side effects and complications. It also minimizes pain and swelling in the nasal cavity resulting from the cyst, without further irritating his stomach condition. Medicating with marijuana has improved his quality of life and has allowed him to function as a normal, seemingly healthy individual.

We are flabbergasted to say the least, that he is facing criminal charges in one state for something that is medically recommended in another. He has obeyed the law to the best of his ability without putting his health at risk. He has no intention of illegally distributing marijuana that is cultivated in our residence, nor has he persuaded any other member of society to use marijuana for medical or recreational purposes. The cultivation and possession was not intended for use or distribution to anyone other than himself for medicinal purposes only.

I am trying to have this story heard in hopes of raising awareness and helping TN and other states consider allowing physicians to recommend the use of marijuana for treatment of debilitating illnesses. These respectable, working members of the community should not be incarcerated or prosecuted for preserving and controlling their own bodies.

Thank you for your careful consideration of this matter.

Kind Regards,
