A judge has dismissed the criminal case against a doctor charged with felony drug distribution after undercover police officers alleged he wrote them shoddy medical-marijuana recommendations. Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour tossed the case against Dr. Manuel Aquino-Villaman following a hearing on Friday. Samour said Aquino-Villaman's actions were lawful under the Colorado constitution and also protected by the First Amendment, according to a court summary of the hearing. He also said the charges should be dropped because prosecutors failed to preserve evidence. Aquino-Villaman had been charged with felony conspiracy to distribute marijuana, in addition to forgery and attempt to influence a public servant.

Joe Byron and Joe Grumbine , who operated a pair of Long Beach cannabis clubs as well as Garden Grove 's Unit D collective until they were raided and arrested along with all of their employees two years ago this month, were found guilty by a jury today of selling marijuana, tax evasion, and electricity theft. The verdict is sure to have wide ramifications throughout California , as it suggests that police and prosecutors can hand-pick cases against cannabis collectives, and assuming a judge allows them to keep juries from hearing the entirety of state law allowing the medicinal use of marijuana, they can win convictions.

The National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) released the results of its 2011 Monitoring the Future Survey of teen drug use, and guess what: Teens are using cigarettes and alcohol less, but they are smoking more marijuana. What's more, they're smoking more weed because they do not perceive it to be as harmful as did teens in the past. Teens' level of "associated risk" with marijuana use has gone done over time, and marijuana is, indeed, less harmful than alcohol and cigarettes: This could be an argument for more honest drug education in schools. These findings are important, as alcohol and cigarettes are more deadly and addictive than pot. The report acknowledged that decreases in associated risk may play a factor in the increases in marijuana use.
Professor Roger Pertwee, an internationally recognised cannabinoid scientist of the University’s School of Medical Sciences, is the 19th recipient of the Wellcome Gold Medal, presented every two years by the British Pharmacological Society.

Roger Pertwee, Professor of Neuropharmacology, said: “I feel delighted and very honoured to have been given this medal by such a prestigious society, especially because it relates to pharmacological achievements, in my case mainly in the area of cannabinoid pharmacology. “My research group is currently focusing on the greatly understudied pharmacology of some of the many unique and fascinating compounds called phytocannabinoids that are produced by cannabis.
Sweden legalizes and regulates cannabis Stockholm, December 19 - The Swedish Parliament has approved a law which will regulate the growing, usage and trade of cannabis. This is according to the Health and Social Services of Sweden, Jonas Grönhög, who was quoted, "We don't want to make the same mistakes which the USA has done, we do not want to be prohibitionists because the war on drugs has been lost long ago. It is better to prevent marginalization of young people than jail them for soft drugs usage which are comparatively harmless. If we allow the sale of alcohol, there is no reason to ban the soft drugs no longer."
(NaturalNews) (NaturalNews )The research indicates that cannabinoids hold the secret to helping heal many of the chronic diseases we are facing. From cancer to diabetes, and from autism to Alzheimer's, medical marijuana helps, and sometimes dramatically so. Cannabinoid medicine holds a great power to alleviate human suffering. There are no words to describe how important this substance is for our race in terms of sanity, compassion and highly rational medicine. Although medical marijuana is nontoxic, smoking it can be hazardous over the long term because toxic compounds are created in the combustion process.

We all agree that we need to generate tax dollars and pump money into the economy. Here is an idea as old as America itself. It should strongly appeal to local agricultural interests, those who wish to promote economic growth, and people who support made-in-America products. It follows the logic of a recent News-Press editorial urging increased local oil production.
Gary Johnson, "In 1997, Newt Gingrich proposed the death penalty for marijuana" Alex Witt (another media clone) is a twit to push that Newt Gingrich's flip flopping on cannabis is not an important issue, when there are 100 million plus Americans who think otherwise. "I would love to have a discussion with him (Gingrich) on the fact that he smoked pot, and under the wrong set of circumstances, he proposed the death penalty for something, potentially, that he had committed?”, Gary Johnson. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
