It has been a long time coming, and it is news that a lot of people will have been waiting for – medical cannabis has been “legally” brought into the UK for consumption. It is a great day for the UK and possibly a turning point in how they handle medical cannabis. A member of the UK based cannabis campaigning group “Clear” has successfully returned from the Netherlands with 90g of medical grade cannabis that had been prescribed by his UK based GP.

This seizure-free anniversary is particularly monumental. After taking 300mg of CBD-rich cannabis oil every day, Zaki is celebrating his first year without seizures. Zaki, who is 10 years old now, had seizures ever since he was only 4 months old - and he experienced thousands per day. Zaki suffers from Doose syndrome, a form of epilepsy found early in childhood. The cause is yet unknown and the conventional pharmaceutical medications are no remedy. The little boy underwent 17 different pharmaceutical treatments — and none caused any relief. When he was 5 years old, an electroencephalography reading revealed that he had more than 200 seizures per hour. Read more about No Seizures Anymore for 10 Year Old Boy
Uruguay is about to make an amazing move toward defunding the organized drug trafficking cartels - the country wants to sell marijuana at a price the cartels won't be able to undercut: $1 per GRAM! Now, THAT would really combat illegal drug trafficking - and would put an end to the violence evolving around it. Earlier this year, in July, the lower house of congress, after a lengthy debate, had approved the bill to legalize marijuana. The legislators in Montevideo had voted 50 to 46 in favor of it. Now it is time to push it through the Senate. Read more about Cannabis for 1 Dollar per Gram in Uruguay

A new scheme has been set up in the Netherlands in an attempt to crack down on illegal marijuana cultivation. Although only a pilot scheme right now, the government is planning to roll out scratch and sniff cards that smell of weed to all of its citizens. The idea behind this plan is to allow the citizens of the Netherlands to become acquainted with the smell, in hopes that they will be able to recognize the illegal plantations around them – allowing them to do their “patriotic” duty and report it to the police. The card itself reads “Scratch, sniff and help. With this cannabis-scented card you will recognize the smell of marijuana cultivation.” Read more about Scratch and Sniff Cards for Dutch Citizens
Sorry, but not on federal level! That pretty much is the baseline of the decision the US Supreme Court made on Monday, October 7th, when it declined to hear an appeal from medical marijuana advocacy groups. This was the third attempt of a medical marijuana advocacy group to change the status of cannabis as a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act. For more than four decades now, medical marijuana advocacy groups try to have cannabis reclassified, but as long as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not recognize the medical uses for the drug, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) sticks to marijuana's status as a Schedule I drug.

Romania enacts a new drug law that allows the use of marijuana derivatives including "resins or plant fragments" for medical purposes. This makes Romania the 10th country in Europe permitting cannabis products for medical purposes. Prior to the amendment any product containing cannabis or any of its derivatives was completely unlawful. Fortunately the legislators in Bucharest recognized the undeniable efficacy of cannabis in treating chronic pain and in reducing seizures in diseases including epilepsy, cancer, multiple sclerosis and certain other conditions. Studies in Romania are currently underway to determine the efficacy of using cannabis for Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and Tourette syndrome.

Quote of the Day
“Marijuana is the finest anti-nausea medication known to science, and our leaders have lied about this consistently. Arresting people for medical marijuana is the most hideous example of government interference in the private lives of individuals.
