  The Law, LEGAL Resources  

Brazil - status Legal and medical status of cannabis From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Brazil (South America) Illegal | Possession: Illegal (Depenalized for personal consumption); Sale, Transport: Illegal; Cultivation: Illegal (Depenalized for personal consumption); The possession of any drug in Brazil, for personal consumption, entails a warning, community service and education on the effects of drug use. The same applies for the planting and/or preparation of small amounts of any drug. Selling and transportation of any drugs, as well as the possession or cultivation of larger amounts thereof, caracterize the crime of drug trafficking, punished with 5 to 15 years in prison and a significant fine. Brazil doesn't punish personal drug use, but trafficking or transporting small amounts of controlled substances is a criminal offense, punishable by drug abuse education or community service. Some advocates worry the law isn't clear about how much constitutes personal possession, and that can leave it up to a judge's discretion about whether someone should be punished. In November, former Brazilian President Fernando Henrique Cardoso joined former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan in calling for the decriminalization of all drugs and allowing countries to experiment with drug regulation. >> source - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legality_of_cannabis_by_country

Brazil - Resource, Org; local Erowid Cannabis Vault : Legal Status - by Erowid | U.S. FEDERAL LEGAL SUMMARY Cannabis REGULATED Yes STATUS Scheduled SCHEDULE Schedule I CLASSIFICATION Hallucinogen Both Cannabis and Tetrahydrocannabinols, the active chemicals contained in Cannabis plants, are Schedule I in the United States. This means they are federally illegal to cultivate, buy, possess, or distribute (sell, trade or give) in all forms (cannabis plants, extracts, hash, hash oil, thc, etc) except synthetic THC (Marinol) which is Schedule III.

Practically, simple possession of small amounts is almost never prosecuted federally. The federal scheduling of Cannabis was disputed in 1988 by Judge Francis Young, an administrative law judge for the DEA, who recommended that marijuana be reclassified as schedule II on the grounds that if a respectable minority of doctors endorse it, then it has a "currently accepted medical use". [Full text of Judge Young's ruling].

Brazil | Cannabis sativa is listed as a controlled substance, making the plant and all of its parts illegal to cultivate, distribute, or possess. Other cannabis species do not appear to be listed, though THC is separately scheduled. Presumably any THC-containing plant is illegal by extension. We have been told that as of 2007 cannabis prohibition is not vigorously enforced. (thanks P) ... Visit: http://www.erowid.org/plants/cannabis/cannabis_law.shtml#brazil

People Events Videos Photos ... Destination: City of God June 28, 2008 Leaving Rome was rough. Our flight was at 5:30 a.m. and we were out the night before drinking the city dry of authentic Roman Pinot Noir until the wee hours. Stuffing the last bits into our suitcase we did the mad dash to the airport and practically cried when we saw that the check in line for our flight was 300 people deep and moving like molasses. Some how, some way we made it on the plane, barely catching our flight. The duration of flight time from Rome, Italy to Rio de Janeiro was 13 hours and boy it wasn’t easy. With our first connection in Lisbon, Portugal taking three hours to get off the ground it felt as if we would never get to Brasil but we did.

When we landed, (a whole day after we departed) it was already almost midnight and customs was a breeze. The airport officials handed out a few seriously alarming pamphlets about who not to associate with (everyone) because everyone is trying to rip you... ... Our taxi driver was sweet but couldn’t speak a stitch of English and unfortunately Mikes Spanish was not cutting it. Portugese is a hard language to decipher, so in order to convey the simpliest question it takes a lot of work and thought processing.

Finally, we come to realize the term maconha (ma-quena-wa) means marijuana and our taxi driver Raul says “oooooh maconha!! Si Si… oh no no no”. Si, Si, no, no, no? Is it yes… or is it no? Can you get the damn weed or not Raul!? Raul says no. He doesn’t know anyone who can help us out either- yeah right. As soon as he delivers the bad news, we arrive at our hotel. Convenient- now we cant kill him! ... Visit: http://www.marijuana.net/index.php?gwloc=37

Brazil - Resource, Org; local WeBeHigh.org - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - marijuana prices, and where to buy weed in Brazil | Where to Buy Marijuana in Rio de Janeiro: Weed is not legal in Brazil but you can buy ... Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 2 - Legislation: Import, export, send, make, buy, sell, expose to sell, offer, prescript, keep [...] or deal drugs, even if for free: 5 to 15 years of jail and R$ 500 to R$ 1500 fine. Although pro-Marijuana campaigns are ongoing in Brazil, Marijuana is illegal in all Brazil, and so is any related action: smoking, cultivating, purchasing, etc. However, there is substituting mandatory rehabilitation for users. another reporter added: “illegal- but everyone smokes on the beach, and many hawkers are offering varying qualities of brick. mostly brown and shit- as well as cocaine and xtc..”

Law Enforcement: Police are intolerant, but can be persuaded with a good incentive…. or, as our Brazilian reporter said:” always watch for the police. They’ll want to find you doing something to get some money out of you!”. So, to sum things up – the police are quite eager to put their hands on you and lock you up, but it is nothing a few American dollars cant fix. another reporter added: “all over and looking for gringos smoking”

Where to Buy Marijuana in Rio de Janeiro : Weed is not legal in Brazil but you can buy it almost anywhere. You should also visit the “favelas” – once inside a “favela” you can find weed in almost any street or “viela”. But that’s not a safe place at all to buy or consume, although you’ll see a lot of people doing it…). A safer way to purchase would be asking other tourists who have already been in Brazil for a while. There a few places much cooler to go and enjoy yourself (and even score some good weed) like Santa Teresa and Lapa. another reporter added: “friendly brazilian smokers is best… but everywhere on the beach is available from venders and hippies selling jewelry…..”

Rio de Janeiro Marijuana Prices: Marijuana is very cheap in Brazil, and Rio Marijuana prices reflect it. Weed prices range from USD 0.50 ( in the favelas; low quality weed ), USD 4.00 ( medium quality; not bad; from dealers ), to USD 15.00 ( very good quality; few dealers). another reporter added: “2-5 R$ per gram 1R$= 2 US$”

Brands: Brazilian Marijuana is usually of poor quality and low potency. Finding high quality weed is rare, and costs much more. The hash is plentiful. The best ones come from Colombia and Paraguay. Brazilian weed is in fact of lower quality, although one can find some good surprises now and then. brick-compressed brown to green depending on how lucky you are ...

International law

Marijuana is in Schedule IV of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, making it subject to special restrictions. Article 2 provides for the following, in reference to Schedule IV drugs:

    A Party shall, if in its opinion the prevailing conditions in its country render it the most appropriate means of protecting the public health and welfare, prohibit the production, manufacture, export and import of, trade in, possession or use of any such drug except for amounts which may be necessary for medical and scientific research only, including clinical trials therewith to be conducted under or subject to the direct supervision and control of the Party.

This provision, while apparently providing for the limitation of marijuana to research purposes only, also seems to allow some latitude for nations to make their own judgments. The official Commentary on the Single Convention indicates that Parties are expected to make that judgment in good faith.

Quem enche a cara de álcool todo dia, ou quase todo dia, é tão drogado quanto quem faz isso com maconha. Ou até mais! Por que maconha não faz o usuário passar vexame, nem ficar falando besteira. O brasileiro tem o vergonhoso costume de achar que álcool não é droga. Sim, o brasileiro. Pois em grande parte do mundo afora é proibido até mesmo beber na rua. Nem mesmo na calçada de casa é permitido. E a ciência já reconhece que os efeitos da maconha são muito mais leves e fáceis de controlar que os da bebida alcoólica. Inclusive os malefícios que ela causa mesmo se consumida em excesso, são muito menores que os do álcool e do tabaco. Não sou eu que digo isso, mas grupos cada vez maiores de médicos.

Medical Marijuana History Plants have always been used as a source of medicine, so why not use medical marijuana to help patients? If we are honest, most of us think of marijuana or weed, ganja, chillums, cannabis, pot, skunk, and any number of alternative names (see marijuana slang) as a drug that induces feelings of happy tranquillity. The truth is that the most active constituent of marijuana, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), has some very useful medicinal effects.

For instance, its ability to inhibit vomiting makes it extremely useful for treating patients receiving chemotherapy, while its tendency to increase appetite bestows great potential in the treatment of eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa. Although cannabis was a medicinal plant for thousands of years, its medical use was suppressed and banned throughout most of the 20th century in the US. During this time, major scientific breakthroughs were made in Israel, Spain, Italy and Brazil. These breakthroughs are propelling the natural plant compounds called cannabinoids into the "wonder drugs of the 21st century". ...

Cannabis was once valued for its medicinal qualities and as a useful source of food and fibre. But in the 21 st century preconceptions and misconceptions about the drug abound. So what is cannabis? The drug, thought to originate from India , comes from a plant (related to nettles and hops) which grows wild in many parts of the world. The first written account of cannabis usage can be found in Chinese records dating back to 2800BC. ... The UN estimates that at the start of the millennium around 3.5% of the world's population aged 15 and over were using cannabis - a staggering 147 million people.

National clinical conferences on the medicinal use of cannabis have been held in the United States in 2000 and 2002 and are scheduled to continue on a biennial basis. Most importantly, data on the number of physicians currently recommending therapeutic marijuana use to their patients demonstrate its acceptance by the medical community in the United States.

Senate approves medical marijuana bill - Monday, December 15, 2008 | TRENTON BUREAU: A Senate committee today cleared a measure that would allow medical use of marijuana in New Jersey. The Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee voted to approve the long-stalled bill by a 6 to 1 margin; two senators abstained. The bill calls for creating “alternative treatment centers” where people with chronic and terminal diseases would be allowed access to marijuana. Supporters say marijuana is a viable treatment option to alleviate pain in many cases.

“It is the definition of basic human decency that we do whatever we can to ease the pain and suffering of people living with severe chronic and terminal diseases,” said bill sponsor Sen. Nicholas Scutari, D-Union. “When all other avenues of currently-approved pain relief have been exhausted, we need to give doctors the freedom to prescribe medical marijuana to give their patients a measure of comfort and dignity in the face of their debilitating diseases. This bill is about the most humane, compassionate option for those state residents who have nowhere else to turn in managing their illnesses.”

If ultimately approved by the full Legislature and signed by Governor Corzine, New Jersey would be the 14th state to allow medical use of marijuana.   ...   Visit - https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=106356.

The study, which was conducted over a two year period and included 775 patients from the USA, Africa, and Puerto Rico, assessed the use of cannabis as a symptom management approach for anxiety, depression, fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, and peripheral neuropathy.  27% of survey participants reported using cannabis for medicinal purposes.

Researchers wrote that cannabis use “was rated slightly more effective than antidepressants for anxiety and depression, Imodium for diarrhea, [over the counter] (OTC) medications for fatigue, and anti-epileptics and OTC medications for neuropathy” while cannabis was rated “slightly less effective for nausea than either prescribed or OTC medications.”   Authors concluded that cannabis “is perceived by users as at least as effective as prescribed medications in symptom management.”   ...   Visit - http://safeaccessnow.org/blog/?cat=22.

These events reveal the country still has a long way to go to consolidate itself as an effectively democratic nation.

The Marijuana March that was expected to happen in 14 cities was forbidden in Belo Horizonte, Brasília, Cuiabá, Curitiba, Fortaleza, João Pessoa, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, São Paulo and Santos. In these cities hundreds of people attended the manifestation, many not knowing the March had being prohibited. More than 50 protesters were arrested and charged with "crime apology", including some who were victims of police violence. The event took place only in Recife, Porto Alegre, Vitória and Florianópolis, where thousands of people manifested peacefully and the announced "apologetic behavior" did not come about. Still today some activists are being investigated in Rio de Janeiro and Salvador, accused with practicing "crime apology", including researchers that are know nationally and internationally, such as Sergio Vidal and Edward MacRae. Both are at risk of being criminally charged with "inducing, stimulating or motivating drug abuse", article 33 of the new drug law that was passed on August 2006. ...

Brazil - Resource, Org; local For immediate release – 15 May 2008 BRAZIL: Marijuana March prohibited, demonstrators detained in clear violation of freedom of expression | ARTICLE 19 strongly condemns a series of judicial decisions prohibiting a march for the legalisation of marijuana in nine Brazilian capitals. The marches were scheduled to take place on 4 May 2008 in ten different cities, but state courts issued preliminary injunctions prohibiting the marches in nine of them. ARTICLE 19 is also appalled by the detention of around 20 demonstrators who attended the marches.

The Marijuana March is a global movement for the legalisation of marijuana, with demonstrations carried out in more than 20 countries. In Brazil, a series of judicial decisions prohibited the marches with the argument that they had the intention of disseminating and stimulating drug use – which supposedly configures “apology and instigation to crime”, according to the decisions. In at least four cities, police detained demonstrators or forced protestors to disburse. The decisions prohibiting the marches are based on article 287 of the Brazilian Penal Code, which defines as a crime the act of “publicly making an apology for a criminal act or for the author of a crime”, and article 33 of Law 11.343, which establishes the crime of “inducing, instigating or helping someone to use drugs”. ...

Brazil - Resource, Org; local Mérida Interview: Luiz Paulo Guanabara, ... There are virtually no people seeking treatment for marijuana in Brazil, and the few who are in treatment for marijuana are usually young people sent by ... Mérida Interview: Luiz Paulo Guanabara, Brazil, Executive Director of Psico-Tropicus 2/21/03 Luiz Paulo Guanabara is the founder and director of Psico-Tropicus, a Brazilian harm reduction and anti-prohibitionist organization. A practicing psychologist, Guanabara is a Brazilian pioneer in integrating the principles of harm reduction with psychotherapy for drug users. For Guanabara, unifying the two disciplines implies being non-judgmental with clients and working with drug users who are not ready to seek abstinence. His career as a harm reductionist began in 1996 in Rio de Janeiro, when he was invited to participate in the city's first needle exchange program. DRCNet spoke with Guanabara in Mérida the evening the conference ended.

Week Online: What is Psico-Tropicus and what does it seek to accomplish? Luiz Paulo Guanabara: Psico-Tropicus is an independent agency that is anti-prohibitionist and interested in harm reduction. As a matter of policy, Brazilian harm reduction projects are funded by the federal government, mainly because of the AIDS epidemic. Psico-Tropicus has very few funds rights now, but we have a good chance this year of gaining funding from an American foundation. We are also looking for funds from some Brazilian nonprofit organizations. The group is still being formed and is composed already of academics and professionals in the health field, and we will probably have Federal Deputy Fernando Gabeira as our man in Congress.

Our main objective is to participate in the formulation of a new Brazilian drug policy. We want to take harm reduction and anti-prohibitionism into the meetings with government officials and civil society and to draw attention to the huge damage that drug prohibition causes to Brazilian society and the Brazilian people. Psico-Tropicus only came to life because we have a new government that we believe will be more open to new perspectives on drug policy. The violence associated with prohibition is unbearable, and we think the people are tired of all this violence. We will be like an independent agency that will strive to insinuate itself into the fabric of the new Brazilian drug policy that is now being planned. ...

Brazil - Resource, Org; local Ex-presidents of Latin America urge legal marijuana - February 11, 2009 | RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (CNN) -- Former presidents of Mexico, Colombia and Brazil called Wednesday for the decriminalization of marijuana for personal use and a change in tactics on the war on drugs, a Spanish news agency said. People march in support of legalized marijuana in late January in Belem, northern Brazil. Ex-presidents Ernesto Zedillo of Mexico, Cesar Gaviria of Colombia and Fernando Henrique Cardoso of Brazil made their announcement at a meeting in Brazil of the Latin American Commission on Drugs and Democracy, the EFE news agency said. "The problem is that current policies are based on prejudices and fears and not on results," Gaviria said at a news conference in which the commission's recommendations were presented. The 17-member panel worked on the report for a year and will forward it to all Latin American governments as well as the United States and the European Union, EFE said. Gaviria said the time is right to start a debate on the subject, particularly with the pragmatic openings provided by the election of President Barack Obama in the United States. "In many states in the United States, as is the case in California, they have begun to change federal policies with regard to tolerating marijuana for therapeutic purposes. And in Washington there's some consensus that the current policy is failing," EFE quotes Gaviria as saying. ... Visit: http://us.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/americas/02/11/brazil.marijuana/index.html

Brazil - Resource, Org; local Brazil - Brazzil Mag -- Trying to understand Brazil since 1989., Law prevents arrest of drug user. - In Brazil Cocaine and Marijuana Won't Land You in Jail Anymore - Written by José Wilson Miranda, Sunday, 27 August 2006 | The use of marijuana, cocaine and Ecstasy is quite widespread in Brazil mainly in the larger cities where there is plenty of the product coming from the favelas (shantytowns). Thanks to a new law, however, drug users, differently from drug traffickers, will not be sent to jail anymore. The new legislation specify that, although still illegal, Brazilians can "acquire, keep, store, transport or carry drugs for personal consumption," without the fear of being arrested for that. The law establishes that individuals are allowed to carry "small quantities" of drug, but leaves to the discretion of the judge or policeman how much is small. Anyone found by police with drugs for personal use will not be detained only having to sign a paper where he agrees to report for sentencing in a future date. At the same time the law, which was signed by Brazilian President, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, increases from three to five years the minimum prison term for people caught selling drugs. ...

Brazil - Resource, Org; local Brazil - Brazzil Mag -- Trying to understand Brazil since 1989: Marijuana Marchers Stopped and Arrested in Brazil Written by Newsroom Thursday, 15 May 2008 | ã A series of judicial decisions prevented Brazilians from marching for the legalization of marijuana in nine capitals of Brazil's states. The marches were scheduled to take place on May 4, 2008 in ten different cities, but state courts issued preliminary injunctions prohibiting the marches in nine of them. The judges' actions have been condemned by several organizations including the London-based freedom of expression group Article 19, which said it was appalled by the detention of around 20 demonstrators who attended the marches.

The Marijuana March is a global movement for the legalization of marijuana, with demonstrations carried out in more than 20 countries. In Brazil, a series of judicial decisions prohibited the marches with the argument that they had the intention of disseminating and stimulating drug use. The marchers' actions supposedly configure "apology and instigation to crime," according to the decisions. In at least four cities, police detained demonstrators or forced protestors to disperse. ...

Brazil - Resource, Org; local Newsbrief: Ohio Man Deported for Minor Marijuana Conviction Found Murdered in Brazil 5/28/04 Joao Herbert, adopted by a Wadworth, Ohio, couple from a Brazilian orphanage when he was eight, then deported back to a land he barely remembered after being arrested for a small-time marijuana sale, was found shot to death Tuesday in his native country, the Akron Beacon Journal reported. Herbert's body was found in the slums of Campinas, north of Sao Paulo, where he scraped by teaching English. His adopted mother, Nancy Saunders, told the Beacon Journal she had received reports her son was killed by police.

Herbert was deported after being convicted of selling marijuana to an undercover agent two months after he graduated from high school in 1997. Although he received only a probation sentence from the local court, he was ordered deported under a 1996 amendment to the immigration laws that made all but the most trivial crimes deportable offenses. And while Herbert had been adopted into an American family, US citizenship was not automatic, and he never obtained it. Saunders and her ex-husband Jim Herbert, Joao's adoptive father, spent two years trying to block their son's deportation, ultimately winning a unanimous recommendation for clemency from the Ohio Parole Board. Republican Gov. Bob Taft denied that recommendation, and Herbert was deported in November 2000. ... Visit: http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle-old/339/joaoherbert.shtml

Brazil - Resource, Org; local BRAZZIL - News from Brazil - Drugs (mari... Brazil has become the world's largest corridor for cocaine. ... They are those working in the marijuana fields in the Northeast and the dozens ... Just Saying Yes ... They are those working in the marijuana fields in the Northeast and the dozens of thousands selling drugs in the streets of the big cities. ... Costa's problem with drugs is not that uncommon anymore. The use of cocaine and crack once limited to street kids is now widespread throughout Brazil. In 1995, 12 tons of marijuana were seized in the whole country, while the same amount was reached in July in 1996, according to the Federal Police. In 1995 the police have also seized 5.3 tons of cocaine, 25 lbs. of crack, 15 lbs. of hashish, a half ton of coca paste and destroyed 2.5 million marijuana plants.

A HUGE EMPLOYER Drugs guarantee jobs to at least a quarter of a million people. Around 100,000 workers are employed by the marijuana plantations in Pernambuco in the Brazilian Northeast and another 150,000 sell marijuana, crack and cocaine in the streets of Rio and São Paulo. It's the drug trade that makes the Fourth-World poor and drought-stricken Polígono das Secas (Drought Polygon) in the Brazilian Northeast an island of prosperity encircled by abject poverty. The area comprising some 30 municipalities spreads over 256 small islands in the São Francisco river and includes towns such as Orocó, Ibó, and Cabrobó, which was once known as the Brazilian onion capital, but has now become the cannabis capital of Brazil.

Poverty hasn't disappeared in the area and 50 percent of the active population has no jobs, but there is no mendicancy in the streets and those who received a monthly $50 government check to work in the so-called frentes de combate à seca (drought fighting fronts) can now make $30 for a day's work in a marijuana plantation. For similar work at an onion field he can't make more than $3 a day. For the land owner — even though many pot fields are on government land — the pot culture is also much more lucrative. While he gets $30 for a kg. of marijuana, he can't charge more than 50 cents for a kg. of beans. João Freire, mayor of Cabrobó, says that he understands the problem. Talking to weekly newsmagazine Isto É, he noted: "The government doesn't finance the production of food, neither guarantees a minimum price for the crops. The rural land owner has no choice but to plant marijuana."

The president of Cabrobó's Rural Workers' Union, João Neném, agrees with the mayor: "We are against it, but we cannot deny that marijuana has helped to solve social problems in the region. People here end up working in the maconhais (marijuana fields). The alternative would be to steal so they can feed their families. " Cabrobó's military police seem resigned to their role of passive onlooker. To be able to do anything they would need a helicopter, a powerful boat and personnel. They have nothing of the sort. The little boat they got, has a broken engine and there's no prediction for when it will be fixed. Even with a powerful boat the MP soldiers wouldn't go out in the treacherous São Francisco water. Most of the two dozen soldiers don't know how to swim.

Many of the workers in the plantations live in a regime of semi-slavery, during the five months they spend working the cannabis fields. These men have a silence code and are armed, acting as their own security guard. According to Aécio Francisco Coelho, Cabrobós' police commissioner, every month a worker is murdered after leaving the The Maconha Polygon should produce 1.5 million tons of marijuana in 1996. The Federal Police says that the production will be less than 1 million tons since they have destroyed 2.7 million cannabis plants in recent months. Inspired by the Paraguayan marijuana producers, Pernambuco has been pressing its pot before shipping it. Police has already apprehended 100 pound marijuana "bricks", but normally these packages don't weight more than eight lb. The marijuana leaves the fields for $50 the kg and increases more than 30 times in price when it gets to the final consumer, who pays $1,600 for a kg of the product. ...

Brazil - Resource, Org; local U.S.-Funded "Expert" Brings Reefer Madness to Brazil; São Paulo Newspaper Claims that Marijuana Causes "Insomnia, Nausea, Muscular Pain," and "Loss of Appetite", By Al Giordano - Special to The Narco News Bulletin | MAY 16, 2003; RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL: As the country of Brazil moves closer to more humane and democratic drug policy, the vested interests – led by the “drug treatment” lobby – are trying desperately to pull it back to the Stone Age. The spear used by these Neanderthals of drug policy comes in the form of knowingly false statements about marijuana users and efforts to corral them into “treatment.” Even as hundreds of drug war critics met in Rio de Janeiro at the event co-sponsored by Narco News last Friday, a U.S. government-funded advocate of “marijuana treatment” had arrived in São Paulo to promote his fledgling industry: “Treatment” for marijuana smokers. Among the demonstrably false claims made the sponsors of the forum titled “Advances in the Treatment of Marijuana Users” at the Federal University of São Paulo (Unifesp) were, according to the daily O Estado of São Paulo, that the use of marijuana causes “insomnia, nausea, muscular pain, anxiety, nervousness, sweat, diarrhea, loss of appetite and intense desire to use the drug.”

These bizarre claims about marijuana already don’t fly in the United States, where they were made for years by the snake-oil salesmen of prohibition and later discarded after being thoroughly disproved by medical journals and professionals. In fact, the claims made in Brazil this week of insomnia, loss of appetite, and muscular pain, supposedly caused by marijuana use, are directly opposite to the consensus of doctors, investigators, and public health professionals in the U.S. and elsewhere who prescribe marijuana as an effective medicine to provide relief for those ailments.

The true facts – and the brazenness with which the Drug Treatment Lobby is lying about them in Brazil – makes the presence of professor Robert Stephens of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute as the special invitee of the São Paulo forum (he’s with a group that calls itself the “Marijuana Treatment Project”) a matter that should be scrutinized by U.S. taxpayers and Brazilian Civil Society alike. ...

Russia - Resources US Government Says It Will Stop Interfering with Medical Marijuana | According to this article, US Attorney General Eric Holder has said that states will be allowed to make their own rules about medical marijuana, and that the US federal government will stop raiding medical marijuana dispensaries in California. (See article “Can Marijuana Help Rescue California’s Economy?”at this link) In the 1990s, several US states passed referendums which allowed marijuana to be used legally for medical purposes. In a referendum, the registered voters vote directly on the proposed law, as opposed to the law being passed by the state legislature. Thus, when these states passed these referendums, it meant that the citizens of these states really wanted medical marijuana to be made legal.

However, in a blatant disregard for democracy and the people’s will, under the Bush administration, the national government refused to accept this law, and carried out raids of the medical marijuana dispensaries.   ...   Click > here < for more.

Medical Cannabis, History - Letter: Medical Marijuana Informational Guide on Medical Cannabis | If you have ever heard of the song, “Lets Go Get Stoned,” as sung by Ray Charles or Joe Cocker, you know the lyrics were referring to getting high or using cannabis aka marijuana. This mind altering drug goes by other names as well; names such as weed, pot, joint, blunt, hash and mary jane are quite common among users. Cannabis is a plant that contains a chemical called cannabinoids or cannabinolidic acids. Another substance that is found in cannabis is THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the users that “high” sensation. When speaking of marijuana, the actual substance used in creating the high feeling comes from the leaves and flowering tops of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is considered to be a schedule 1 controlled substance today, because of the THC, which can be highly potent, depending upon the concentration factor of the THC.

Medical Cannabis - Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine by Ian Williams Goddard | In reaction to medical cannabis access referendums on the ballots in Arizona and California, former presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George Bush signed a letter stating that they "categorically oppose'' access to cannabis for its many proven therapeutic uses such as the prevention of blindness and epileptic seizures. Their chief concern was that legal medical access would send the message that cannabis is safe. The presidents can, however, lay their safety concerns to rest because the scientific literature overwhelmingly confirms that cannabis is both an effective and safe medicine. The Cannabis Safety Profile. The journal PHARMACOLOGICAL REVIEWS reports that decades of research prove that, "Compared with legal drugs...marijuana does not pose greater risks." Yet based upon mortality statistics, we can safely conclude that cannabis is one of the safest medical drugs known, for, while prescription drugs, defined as safe by the FDA, kill up to 27,000 and aspirin up to 1,000 Americans per year, cannabis kills 0 per year.
