Marijuana grow-op found in special care home for seniors - RCMP alerted after firefighters responded to a fire in the building

Canada - News: Marijuana grow-op found in special care home for seniors Police in central New Brunswick are investigating a marijuana grow operation discovered at a special care home for seniors by emergency crews responding to a fire. Firefighters, who were called to the Forever Young facility on Shore Road in Clarks Corner at about 11 a.m. local time Thursday, noticed what appeared to be a grow-op in the basement and alerted police. RCMP obtained a search warrant and seized 550 plants - enough to produce up to 275,000 joints, growing equipment and a large quantity of marijuana, Cpl. Brian Villers said in a release. Investigators believe the fire is related to the grow-op, said Villers. All residents of the home got out safely, he said. Forever Young Special Care Home has six beds and provides Level 1 and Level 2 care, according to the New Brunswick Special Care Home Association Inc. website. * Source >> Marijuana grow-op found in special care home for seniors, CBC News <<


Canada’s new Medical Marijuana rules cut Homegrowers, Pharmacists Out

Canada - News: Canada’s new Medical Marijuana rules cut Homegrowers, Pharmacists Out After two years of study and discussion, the federal government has finalized new rules for medical marijuana and granted a reprieve to pharmacists who opposed the rules in their draft form. Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq rolled out the regulations today for formal publication in the Canada Gazette on Wednesday. Under the new regime, the government will no longer produce or distribute medical pot and medical marijuana users will no longer be allowed to grow the product at home. Health Canada said since the medical marijuana program was introduced in 2001, it has expanded to 30,000 people from the original 500 authorized to use the product. * Read >> more >>


So Trudeau Smoked Pot. at Least He’s Honest

Canada - News: So Trudeau Smoked Pot. at Least He’s Honest That Justin Trudeau has dabbled with pot likely surprised few in Canada. However, his recent admission that he took his last puff just three years ago is provocative. We’re used to politicians saying they tried marijuana in their carefree youth. And used to them drastically playing down the amount they smoked – that is, if they actually inhaled at all. But these types of political confessions stopped being news a long time ago. What’s different about Mr. Trudeau’s divulgence is his acknowledgment he did it just a few years ago, while an MP. And, not insignificantly, while the possession of marijuana was still a criminal offence in this country – and remains so. That is either politically brave or stupid. It is without question refreshingly honest. * Read >> more >>

Status of Medical Marijuana (Cannabis) in Canada.

  Info on Canada and Medical Cannabis 

Canada has a MEDICAL MARIJUANA (cannabis) LAW.

Canada - status Canada, Yes | In 2002, Canada's federal government made several findings in favor of cannabis legalization and medical use approval. Although the status of medical cannabis is still in flux (sep 2002), the Canadian government has several times voiced its intention to support full medical use. However, Busts in Canada continue, especially of larger growing and distribution operations. In Hitzig v. Canada (2003), a court again declared Canada's Marijuana Medical Access Regulations unconstitutional "in not allowing seriously ill Canadians to use marijuana because there is no legal source of supply of the drug." In effect, this means that Canadians cannot be prosecuted for using marijuana medically because the Marijuana Medical Access Regulations gives patients the right to do so, but does not set up any legal apparatus for obtaining cannabis.

Back in July 2000, in the "Parker" (epileptic Terry Parker) decision, another judge had made a declaration of invalidity of Canada's drug laws as they relate to the "simple possession" of marijuana due to the lack of a reasonable exemption from the law for medicinal use. The Canadian government was given one year (a suspension of the declaration of invalidity) to remedy the situation, and created the Marijuana Medical Access Regulations. These regulations have been repeatedly deemed unconstitutional in a series of court decisions including "Hitzig." In a similar case based upon these decisions, lawyer Brian McAllister argued on behalf of a sixteen-year-old that because the Canadian government, after setting up the MMAR, never reenacted the relevant section of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, Canada effectively has no prosecutable laws prohibiting the "simple possession" of any amount of cannabis.

Representatives of the United States federal government have claimed that decriminalizing cannabis in Canada may disrupt border trade and relations between the two countries; many Canadians believe that this remains the primary obstacle to decriminalization in Canada. Canada produces about 400 kg of medical cannabis annually. From 2002 until 2009 the marijuana was produced in an abandoned mine in Flin Flon, Manitoba. On April 19, 2005, the Canadian government additionally licensed the prescription sale of a natural marijuana extract - effectively liquid marijuana - called Sativex.

The federal department Health Canada now provides detailed advice (for its own citizens), including not only the medical information needed to make an informed choice, but the law enforcement aspects, and how to apply for authorization to possess marijuana for medical purposes. There is also information that may be of help to the patient's health professional.

Canada - Resource, Org; local, News: How To Access Canada's New Medical Marijuana Program - Part 1 | CANNABIS CULTURE - Health Canada will stop accepting its burdensome, barely-constitutional application for Canada's former Marihuana Medical Access Regulations (MMAR) on September 30, 2013. This system will be replaced with the new Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR). Other than designing a difficult-to-navigate webpage, the government agency hasn't done much to inform doctors or the public about how to access their new medical marijuana program. This is strange given the feds have high projections for the numbers of Canadians who will be purchasing from licensed producers.

Once again, Health Canada has done little to market medical marihuana access. Almost two billion is spent annually on marketing pharmaceuticals. Without some kind of marketing, Canadians won't know how to access legal medical cannabis. Instead, Canadians will continue to turn to Facebook or Google for information on how to obtain medical marijuana and find advocates or articles. While Health Canada has failed Canadians, Canadians have taken it upon themselves to make medical marijuana work. How To Access Canada's New MMPR Medical Marijuana Program

1. You need only one doctor, regardless of illness. Gone are the specialists and categories of illness in MMAR. The MMPR is wide-open to ensure, regardless of illness, that if you want to medicate with marijuana and have a doctor's (or in the future, a nurse practitioner's) support, you're going to gain access to legal cannabis.

2. You don't apply to the government for medical marijuana. The burdensome application is not only gone, but so is government involvement. Many believe it's the feds that frightened-off doctors. It could be true.

3. Health Canada has a one-page PDF sample form. The sample medical document is kind of amazing in its simplicity. It's not an application, but a form. You can print it off take it your doctor. Download it here.

4. The document looks innocuous, but the third line is the deal-sealer or deal-breaker. "Daily quantity of dried marihuana to be used by the patient" is where all the action is. Convince a doctor to put a number here and you may buy legal cannabis.

5. The rest of the information on the sample form is basic medical office information.

6. Doctor's signature. Most importantly, the doctor is signing that the information on the form is correct – you intend to use cannabis daily. No endorsement. No recommendation. No obligation. Doctors may still balk at being involved in medical marijuana or they may embrace it. At the moment we still aren't sure about all the possible barriers to access.

7. Nurse practitioner's signature. New under the MMPR is the possibility of nurse practitioners signing for medical marijuana. Health Canada will never admit my court case R v. Mernagh forced this option, but Team Mernagh is going to take credit. Currently provincial legislation in every province prevents Nurse Practitioners from actually doing this.

8. Sample Medical Document. Remember, it's only a sample form and Health Canada notes another document may be used as long as the information is identical. Alternatively (and possibly the best method) would be to use a doctor's letterhead, because all the medical business information is already on it. A prescription pad note is also doable if it contains all the required information. Any alternative documents must have all the doctor's information on it and your's too.

Canada - status Cannabis legalization in Canada - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | The legal status of marijuana in Canada is under dispute. Superior and appellate courts in Ontario have repeatedly declared Canada's marijuana laws to be of no force and effect. However, challenges to marijuana laws at the federal level have not resulted in the deletion of the appropriate articles from the Criminal Code of Canada and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Police and prosecution services in other Canadian jurisdictions still pursue criminal charges for marijuana possession.[1][2]

The cultivation of cannabis is currently illegal in Canada, with exceptions only for medical usage. However, the use of cannabis by the general public is broadly tolerated,[3] and a vigorous campaign to legalize cannabis is underway nation-wide. Several polls since 2003 have found that a majority of Canadians agreed with the statement, "The use of marijuana should be legalized", the latest being the 2009 Angus Reid poll.[4] The recent development after the last election is however the opposite, a much more restrictive law with higher minimum penalties for drug crimes and a national anti-drug strategy including prevention and treatment.[5] ... source - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabis_legalization_in_Canada

Police and prosecution services in other Canadian jurisdictions still pursue criminal charges for cannabis possession. The cultivation of the hemp plant of the genus Cannabis (family Cannabaceae) is currently legal in Canada for seed, grain and fiber production only under licenses issued by Health Canada. Several polls since 2003 have found that a majority of Canadians agreed with the statement, "The use of marijuana should be decriminalized".

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.

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.

Canada - Resource, Org; local How Do I Apply for Medical Marijuana in Canada? - 420 MAGAZINE ® | Medical Marijuana. Medical Cannabis News; MMJ Facts & Information; MMJ Strain Reviews; MMJ Scientific Data; ... How Do I Apply for Medical Marijuana in Canada? How Do I Apply for Medical Marijuana in Canada? In July 2001, Her Excellency the Governor General in Council, on the recommendation of the Minister of Health, pursuant to subsection 55(1) of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, hereby makes the annexed Marihuana Medical Access Regulations To begin with, you will need to obtain the forms required to apply for access to medical marijuana. You can get the forms online at (link) in .pdf format, and print them, or you can call the Office of Cannabis Medical Access (OCMA) at 1-866-337-7705 and ask them to mail you the forms (it's free!).

There are two types of applications:

(1) Authorization to possess marijuana. Requires one form to be filled out by the applicant, and one form by their doctor.

(2) Authorization to grow your own marijuana, or to have someone else grow it for you. This will be a little bit more work, requiring a few more forms.

Your doctor will have to recommend a daily dosage of marijuana. A form of administration. The duration is 12 months unless otherwise specified.

Application conditions:

There are three categories of medical conditions which are eligible for medical marijuana. Category three is quite general however, and almost every condition could be classified there.

* There is a section to fill out what symptoms you suffer from, and what other treatments you have tried. I would recommend extensively researching the side effects and downsides of all the popular treatments, and claim to suffer from all of them.

* There is a section to choose whether you will grow your own, or designate another person to grow for you. If you will not be growing, you will need to provide the address of the person who will, whether they own the property, and if the marijuana will be stored at that location. If the property is rented, the owners permission will be required, and a form is provided for that purpose as well.

* You will also need to disclose whether the marijuana will be grown indoors, outdoors, or a combination.

* If there will be any marijuana grown outdoors, you must indicate that the property is not adjacent to any schools, play grounds, day cares, or other places frequented by persons under the age of 18.

* You must confirm that the marijuana will be stored indoors, and you must provide details about security of the production site.

* One of the last steps will be to inform the local authorities that you have obtained a license to either possess and/or grow marijuana for medical purposes.

Formulas for maximum possession / production:

Possession: For personal possession, once you have been granted a license, the formula for maximum possession is as follows: A * 30

Where; A = the maximum daily dosage as prescribed in your application. (So basically, you can carry up to 30 days worth of your prescribed supply at once)

Production: For production, plant numbers are calculated based on whether the plants will be grown fully indoors, fully outdoors, or a combination.

For production fully indoors, the maximum allowed number of plants is calculated as follows: D = [(A × 365) ÷ (B × 3C)] × 1.2

Where; D is the maximum number of plants, A is the maximum daily dosage as prescribed in your application, B is equal to 30 grams, the expected yield per plant, and C is a constant 1, representing the number of possible crops per year).

So for example, if your prescription is for (5 grams daily, multiply by 365) to get 1825 grams per year. This will be divided by (30 grams times 3 crops, which is 90) so 1825 divided by 90 equals 20, which is finally multiplied by 1.2, to equal 24.

So a prescription of 5 grams daily will mean you can grow 24 plants at once.

For production fully outside, the maximum number of plants is calculated as follows:

D = [(A × 365) ÷ (B × C)] × 1.3

(so taking into account 1 crop per year, instead of 3, you are allowed 3 times more plants. The multiplier changes from 1.2 to 1.3, so thats a few more plants for margin of error, being outside.

And for a indoor/outdoor production combination, the formula is:

For the indoor period, D = [(A × 182.5) ÷ (B × 2C)] × 1.2 For the outdoor period, D = [(A × 182.5) ÷ (B × C)] × 1.3

Storage: And finally, for storage of dried marijuana at a production site, the following formulas apply:

E = D × B × 1.5

Where; E = the maximum amount of dried marijuana, D is the maximum number of allowed plants, and B is equal to 30 grams. In other words, you are allowed to store your 1.5 times your crop's yield.

Assuming a prescription of 5 grams daily (the maximum amount without filling out an extra section declaring that your doctors believe the benefits will outway the harm), the allowed numbers of plants are quite generous. >> Visit: http://www.420magazine.com/forums/how-grow-marijuana/72229-how-do-i-apply-medical-marijuana-canada.html

Canada - Resource, Org; local, News: CAMCD: Canada's Medical Marijuana Dispensaries are Indispensable | Canada - Resource, Org; local: The Canadian Association of Medical Cannabis Dispensaries (CAMCD) CANNABIS CULTURE - The Canadian Association of Medical Cannabis Dispensaries (CAMCD), a newly-formed advocacy group for med-pot providers, is asking patients who use marijuana as medicine to tell Health Canada that "dispensaries are indispensable". The CAMCD is asking medical marijuana users to join their national campaign "to have medical cannabis dispensaries recognized as legal providers of medical cannabis" by signing an endorsement online or at their local dispensary.

"We started the 'Dispensaries are Indispensable' national endorsement campaign to try to make it as clear as possible that the services patients are getting from dispensaries are valued," CAMCD Director Jeet-Kei Leung told Cannabis Culture. "We are asking that dispensaries be included in the Canadian Marihuana Medical Access Regulations (MMAR) as an option for patients to access their medicine." The campaign was designed to help medical marijuana users, whether certified by Health Canada or not certified, express their support for dispensaries as safe sources of cannabis and request that Health Canada recognized them as legal providers. >> Visit: www.cannabisculture.com/content/2011/07/22/CAMCD-Canadas-Medical-Marijuana-Dispensaries-are-Indispensable

Canada - Resource, Org; local, News: Canada Rolls Out a ‘$1 Billion’ MMJ Industry Medical Marijuana Canada » Cannabis Activist Network > Canada Rolls Out a ‘$1 Billion’ MMJ Industry | Canada - Resource, Org; local: Cannabis Action Network (CAN) Marijuana was Canada’s newest mail-order product Tuesday, the inaugural day of a controlled medical marijuana industry that is expected to grow to more than $1 billion dollars within 10 years. But even as the new system privatizes distribution, critics fear regulation under the conservative-led government will make it harder for patients to get access to the drug. In Canada, medical marijuana has been legal but highly regulated for more than a decade. Patients with doctor approval could grow or have someone else grow small quantities or request limited amounts from Health Canada, the national healthcare department.

But the conservative-led government voted earlier this year to effectively scrap that system in favor of a private—but also strictly regulated—system, targeting the flow of legal marijuana into the black market and shedding Health Canada’s role in marijuana production. Health Canada will phase out the current system, under which it sells registered users marijuana grown by Prairie Plant Systems, by the end of March. Instead, starting Tuesday, medical marijuana users, or aspiring users, can send in an application directly to sanctioned corporate producers, along with a doctor’s note (or in some cases, a nurse’s note). If approved, they can place an order, pay the market price (the black market price is about $10 a gram; officials say the medical marijuana price will drop below that within a year), and wait for the secure courier to deliver their weed. >> Visit: cannabisactivistnetwork.com/category/medical-marijuana-canada/

He will still have to stand trial on charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking and unlawful possession of marijuana. In a huge victory for Canada's medical marijuana patients, people authorized to use medicinal cannabis can use it in infused edibles and drink it in tea -- not just smoke the dried flowers -- the B.C. Supreme Court ruled on Friday. Justice Robert Johnston said the restriction to dried cannabis only in Health Canada's Medical Access Regulations is unconstitutional, violating Section 7 of the Charter of Rights, reports Louise Dickinson at The Victoria Times Colonist. "The remedy for this breach is to remove the word 'dried' where it appears in the Marijuana Medical Access Regulations and I so order," Justice Johnston said.

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.

Canada - Resource, Org; local Government to Sell Medical Marijuana - Canada Online Archives (July 10, 2003) | TORONTO, July 9 — The Canadian government announced an interim plan today that will provide marijuana on a regular basis to several hundred people who are authorized to use the drug for medical reasons. In the nick of time to meet a deadline set by an Ontario Court, Health Canada has announced it will reluctantly sell marijuana to Canadians licensed to use marijuana for medical purposes. The Canadian health minister announced an interim policy in which marijuana seeds or dried marijuana will be sold to patients who qualify under the Canadian medical marijuana regulations.

The health minister made it clear this new policy may be suspended or changed. The government is appealing the Ontario court ruling that said the medical marijuana access program is unconstitutional unless the government provides a distribution plan for patients to get access to marijuana legally. Coming six weeks after the federal government introduced a bill decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana and only days after it approved a trial "safe injection site" in Vancouver for intravenous drug users, the marijuana plan was one more sign that Ottawa is moving in a very different direction on drug policy from the Bush administration. ...

"Basically, what I do is, I cause trouble. That's my function. If you cause enough trouble eventually you effect change."

Meet Alan Young. Last summer the Osgoode Hall law professor launched a constitutional challenge against marijuana laws on behalf of Chris Clay, owner of a London, Ont., store called Hemp Nation. Clay, whose merchandise included marijuana plants, was charged with trafficking and cultivating a narcotic. While Young's client was found guilty, Ontario Court Justice John McCart was tolerant, handing Clay a relatively modest $750 fine and three years probation. In his judgement, McCart said, "as it is commonly used, occasionally, cannabis presents only minor.or subtle risks to the health of the individual." This spring Young will represent Lynn Harichy, a multiple sclerosis patient charged with possession after lighting a marijuana joint in front of a London police station. ...

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.

"greetings from canada - Well a non controversial trip to BC for a redo of part of a honeymoon journey had a very interesting beginning today. Of a ferry with a full of 100 cars, ours was the only one selected for special attention. After a brief encounter with a pleasant person in a booth we were asked to park just so and wait. Shortly two personable women canadian customs officials engaged us in a short conversation about where and what we were doing and then walked off with our passports.

A bit later they returned, separated us and asked me if I used marijuana (gee! how did they know! damn that google!) which I said yes to and no I did not have any and yes I did have my pipe which was in my pants pocket in my suitcase. So they said , we have to look at your car and go stand over there. NOT THERE! over there!

So they opened and prodded and peered and did indeed find my pipe where I said it was and spent about 1/2 hour seeking the truth of it all. So finding the pipe, they said well, this has residue and is not clean. you can smoke cannabis here but you can not bring it in. ok, so now I have proof that canadian customs values cannabis at $6.00 CN / .3 grams per the receipt they gave me for confiscated goods (they assigned NO value to the pipe!). and I have no longer the pipe my machinist stepbrother made, but I am writing this from an hotel and not Victoria jail or whatever they do here.

During the search she asked if I had any sharp knives on board and I said yes, there are two sharp knives here in this plastic storage box of kitchen stuff. So as it went, she started to open the plastic box and for some reason waved her hand at it as if to dismiss it and went on. So when it was all over and we checked into our evening's lodging I was able to retrieve my coffee cannister from that box of kitchen stuff, dump out its contents onto a newspaper, retrieve my ounce of medicine and with they help of locally procured papers, put sufficent distance between then and now that it's ok.
