Medical marijuana users may face pot shortage

Medical marijuana users in B.C. are worried there soon could be a shortage of legal weed.

In just 62 days, all medical marijuana must be purchased from a federally approved supplier, but so far only five producers are licensed to grow and sell cannabis — the nearest one to B.C. is in Saskatchwan.

Medical marijuana supplier Jean Chiasson of MediJean says his lab is currently only licensed to research which strains of cannabis treat pain, seizures and a host of other ailments.

"We're looking for not the holy grail, but many holy grails," said Chiasson.

"Through research and development, we can find out what it does, we can find out the potential of this great herb, this great plant ... and service a lot of patients."

The problem is they still don't have a permit and Chiasson points out, it takes time to grow the plant that needs to be bottled and shipped to patients.

"We're hoping to be able to gene sequence, we're hoping to be able to patent what we do do, and if we do come up with certain strains and Health Canada allows us we can disseminate our product around Canada," said Chiasson.

MediJean has applied to produce 15 thousand kilograms of marijuana a year.
Few companies licensed to produce and sell

Last year, Canada's 38 thousand pot patients were approved to consume 190 thousand kilograms of cannabis.

On April 1, however,  the dispensaries and patients who now grow their own marijuana are expected to chop down their plants and start buying online for as much as seven times the price.

So far only five companies have been licensed to produce and sell marijuana under the new regime — four in Ontario and one in Saskatchewan — but several hopefuls are already advertising online. Three companies are licensed to produce, but not sell. Continue Reading...

Three Marijuana Stocks Positioned To Win

 The expanding legalization of medical marijuana has triggered a myriad of new companies going public trying to get their piece of the action.

Here are three companies that appear to be well positioned to make their move if the medical-marijuana industry takes off.

Hollywood, Calif.-based Medbox, Inc. (OTCPINK Markets: MDBX), a maker of patented, self-service, identity-verifying medicine dispensers, believes it is perfectly positioned to cash in on the burgeoning medical marijuana market.

"Legal marijuana is one of the most rapidly expanding medical markets in the U.S., projected to exceed $3 billion in 2014," said Dr. Bruce Bedrick, chief executive officer, Medbox, Inc., in a written statement. "This rapid growth is creating significant opportunities and Medbox is positioned as the first mover and clear industry leader in this burgeoning sector. Our offerings include sophisticated and comprehensive consulting services for dispensary permit applicants and cultivators, as well as offering dispensing technologies and vaporizers. The breadth and depth of our offerings position us to strengthen our leadership role and we felt it was an appropriate time to retain proven IR counsel to help us raise our visibility in the investment community, communicate our investment thesis and broaden our shareholder base," he added.

Medbox's dispensers even have the precaution of requiring a finger print check for identity. The company hopes to ultimately place these dispensers in the thousands of clinics and approved facilities that it hopes one day will dispense medical marijuana.

MDBX share price closed at $37.65 cents on Jan. 28, down $39.45 cent from its closing price of 38 cents the previous day.

Secure Delivery Service

On Jan. 28, Marijuana Inc. (OTC PINK: MJNA) share volume shot through the stratosphere, with 117,547,625 shares changing hands, 6.5 times its 3-month average of 18,007,320 shares.

The sudden volume was triggered by a Jan. 28th announcement made by the San Diego holding company that one of its newly-formed subsidiaries would be providing armored transport services for companies in the cannabis industry.

Marijuana Inc.'s subsidiary, Wellness Managed Services, has gained this capability by purchasing a 50% stake in MPS International.

Cannabis Security Issue

In a written statement, MPS International’s CEO Mike Roberts outlined some specifics about the new armored marijuana transport service.

"Large amounts of product will be moved from grow to wholesaler, warehouse, testing facilities, bakeries, infusion laboratories and finally to retail locations," Roberts said. "Post transaction, and especially right now with federal regulations prohibiting FDIC insured banks from offering financial services to cannabis industry businesses, large amounts of cash will need to be transported between parties securely as this creates an easy target for predators and competing businesses," he added.

Potentially Lucrative Opportunity

In the release, Roberts went on to outline the potential opportunity that existed for providing armor transportation for currently legal cannabis businesses. He pointed out that there are now about 448 dispensaries in Colorado alone, while in California there are an estimated 2,700 dispensaries, co-operatives, wellness clinics, and taxi delivery services.

"Using an average of one armed security officer working 10 hour shifts, 7 days per week billing at the industry standard of $25/hour armed, 52 weeks per year, annual gross revenue created by just 11 locations is more than $1,000,000 for just static physical security," Roberts explained.

Once the company establishes this footprint, it says it will evaluate other cannabis markets such as those in Canada.

MJNA share price closed at 39 cents, down 1 cent from its closing price of 38 cents the previous day. Find out what could be the best investor's move when it comes to MJNA by getting the complete report here, or by cutting and pasting the following link in your Web browser:

Weedadillas

Weddadilla Ingredients:

  • Tortillas
  • Marshmallows
  • Strawberry Syrup
  • Chocolate Syrup
  • Peanut Butter
  • Hershey’s Chocolate
  • 1/4 – 1/2 gram of ground up weed or your preferred serving size of cannabutter.

How To Make Weedadillas

  1. Take your tortilla and smear cannabutter on it if you have some, otherwise you can skip this step.
  2. Stir your ground up weed into your peanut butter in a microwavable safe bowl and microwave for one minute. This will soften the peanut butter and extract the THC from the weed into the peanutbutter.
  3. Add your marshmallows and Hershey’s Chocolate to your tortilla along with your peanut butter. You can layer it however you see fit.
  4. Roll up your tortilla and place it back in the microwave for another 10 to 15 seconds to ensure the chocolate and marshmellows are softened.
  5. Enjoy and get baked!
Using this basic marijuana recipe for Weedadillas you can come up with some pretty great recipes, maybe kind of marijuana smores with tortillas replacing the graham crackers.

Marijuana Omelette


Ingredients:

3 tablespoons cannabis milk
3 eggs
Cheese (optional)
Other toppings (optional)
Bubble hash (not required)

Directions:

Get a frying pan on the stove at medium heat. Beat the egg in a small bowl to break the yolks and mix them all together. Add the cannabis milk in to the bowl and continue to mix. If you decide to use the hash, add in as much of it in powdered form as you would like. Stir everything together in the bowl and the pour it in the the frying pan. When the omelette is flat like this, you can add in any of the topping that you were craving. This includes green peppers, cheese, sausage, ham, or anything else you’ve thought to put in there. Once you see that the omelette edges are turning solid, use a spatula to fold it in half. Let it cook on that side for about two minutes and then flip it over to the other side. When the egg turns a nice golden/yellow, you know you’ve cooked it enough.

If you’re unfamiliar with omelets, they go extremely well with hash browns and toast! The perfect diner breakfast, easily made at home. Plus it’ll be healthier than diner food AND it’s medicated. You really can’t go wrong with this recipe.

Ad agencies prepare for the legal marijuana market

The slogan, “This Bud's for You” may already be claimed, but that isn't stopping advertising executives from dreaming about getting in on the burgeoning sales of legal medical and recreational marijuana – an industry estimated to already be generating revenues in the billions of dollars.

With medical marijuana sales legal in 20 states and the District of Columbia, and with Colorado and Washington legalizing recreational cannabis use for adults as of this year, many advertisers and marketers are honing their skills and preparing for a universally legal pot market.

Indeed, some industry observers say “stoner”-focused advertising is already here. Fast-food chain Taco Bell, a division of restaurant giant Yum! Brands (YUM), advertises its “fourth meal”menu to young consumers with the slogan, “you're out, you're hungry.” It also has a jingle that sings the praises of tending to your “late night munchies.”

Some marijuana entrepreneurs, like former Microsoft (MSFT) executive Jamen Shively are even establishing their own brands of cannabis in hopes of cashing on the growing business.

Mass-culture advertising of cannabis products “is going to happen quicker than you think,” said Greg Wagner, a former long-time ad executive who is now a lecturer and internship director in the marketing department at the University of Denver's Daniels College of Business.

Wagner believes the ad agencies are already working on how to counter the negative “Reefer Madness” and “Cheech & Chong” stereotypes of cannabis and its users.

“There is baggage there,” he said. “But if you think about it, there was probably baggage back in the Prohibition days, when [alcohol] became legal again.” Continue Reading....

Colorado mile marker 420 now 419.99

Colorado officials have remarked some mile markers off by fractions in an attempt to stop the theft of certain road signs.

Officials put their foot down to stop the theft of mile marker 420 once and for all. The Colorado Department of Transportation reported that the "MILE 420" sign along Interstate 70 is being replaced with a new sign, "MILE 419.99."

Amy Ford from the Colorado Department of Transportation says it's the only "420" sign to be replaced since Colorado legalized recreational marijuana. She says the sign was stolen for the last time, according to the Associated Press.

People have already left status updates sad to see it go. Many are calling it a tradition to nab the "Mile 420" sign, but apparently all things do come to an end.

You may have to ask if spending an extra buck fifty on marijuana purchases is worth paying to keep
Mile 420?

Happy 419.99

Homemade Medicated Krispy Kreme Doughnuts


Doughnut Ingredients:
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 3 Tablespoons boiling water
  • 1 teaspoons dry active yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour (you might need up to 2 cups of flour. depending on where you live) see note above
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 Tablespoon Butter, cold to room temperature (do not melt)
  • Dash of salt
  • Enough oil to cover the bottom few inches of a pan, wok, or a deep fryer

Glaze Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup Cannabis Butter AKA Weed Butter
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 Tablespoons hot water or as needed
Directions
 
1. In a large measuring bowl, combine the milk and boiling water. Add a teaspoon of the sugar and the yeast. Stir it gently, then leave it in a warm place for the yeast to activate. It will look foamy
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, the rest of the sugar, and the salt. Cut in the butter using your fingers or a pastry blender, until it resembles crumbs.
3. Add the egg and yeast mixture to the flour mix, and mix into a smooth dough. This usually takes about 5 minutes of mixing.
4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly-floured counter and knead for about 5 to 10 minutes—it should feel springy and little bubbles should form under the surface. Place it back in the bowl, cover with a cloth or plastic wrap, and let rise for about an hour until double in size.
5. Once risen, place the dough onto the counter and cut it into 4 pieces. One piece at a time, stretch it into a long rope about an inch to an inch and a half wide. Cut strips about an inch long, ball em up with your hands, and place them on a baking tray or wire rack to wait.Cover the donut holes with a cloth to rise. Cover the donut holes with a cloth to rise
6. Heat the oil to 375F. Place the donuts into the oil and fry until golden brown on each side, about 2 minutes. Only cook a few at a time so they don’t overcrowd and stick together.
7. Drain on a paper towel or wire rack over a cloth, before glazing them.
8. Combine ingredients for glaze. Dunk cooked donuts in warm glaze and place on paper towel or wire rack to dry. Reheat glaze if it cools too much. It needs to be warm while dunking donuts to get that yummy Krisp Kreme affect.

Medical marijuana purity under a microscope

usatoday.com

PHOENIX — Hunched over a microscope, Steve Cottrell peered at a bud from a plant that is increasingly used as medicine in Arizona and across the nation.

He pointed at a computer screen that glowed with a magnified image of the marijuana bud. The sample, the size of a quarter, was covered with powdery white bumps — a mold that was invisible to the naked eye.

Increasingly, medical-marijuana dispensaries and patients are turning to laboratories to evaluate medical-marijuana plants, identify potentially harmful substances and pinpoint the potency of plants and cannabis-infused products, from caramels and "cherry roll" candies to butter.

Cottrell, 42, and his company, AZ Med Testing, is one of a number of labs in the state that cater to the burgeoning medical-marijuana industry. The lab, located in a small office complex in north-central Phoenix, works with about a third of the state's 70-plus dispensaries, he says.

Many dispensaries market organically grown marijuana, an important selling point for patients with weak immune systems that can be further compromised if noxious elements are inhaled. Using high-tech instruments, Cottrell looks for mold, bacteria and fungus, which can weaken patients' respiratory systems. He also tests for pesticides that can degrade the nervous system. And he tests the medicine to determine the amount of active cannabinoids — including CBDs, CBG, THC and THCA — the chemicals responsible for many of the physical and psychological effects of marijuana.

Patients should know what is in their medicine, Cottrell said, just as they can with medicine bought at pharmacies and grocery stores. That, he says, is fundamental to helping patients choose the proper strain and dosage of marijuana to treat them.

"Patients with a compromised immune system, this can further their ailment and make it more dangerous for them to consume the medicine," he said. "So that's why we need to make sure all of the samples that we're testing are free of mold and microtoxins" that patients can't see unless "they have a microscope and they know what they're looking for."

When he discovers mold or pesticides, Cottrell informs his clients, who can decide to distribute the pot or destroy it.

"I'm either the most hated man in the industry, or the most loved," depending on testing outcomes, he said with a laugh.

Arizona does not require dispensaries to test for pesticides or fertilizers, although it does mandate they list chemicals used on plants. The state health director who oversees the medical-marijuana program said the public urged officials during the rule-making process to not require testing under the notion that it could increase medicine prices.

Asked if testing should be required in Arizona, Department of Health Services Director Will Humble said through a spokeswoman that it is up to consumers to decide if they want to buy cannabis from dispensaries that test.

Twenty-one states have passed medical-marijuana laws, plus Washington, D.C. While most states don't require testing, one national expert said she expects other states to follow the path of those like Massachusetts and Illinois, which require testing.

Betty Aldworth of the National Cannabis Industry Association said "even if it's not required, it tends to be sort of a standard."

Pharmacists can explain to patients the ingredients in painkillers, Aldworth points out, saying, "Why is medical marijuana any different?" Continue Reading...

NY set to allow limited use of medical marijuana

ALBANY, New York (AP):

New York would become the 21st state to allow medical use of marijuana under an initiative Governor Andrew Cuomo will unveil this week.

Cuomo plans to use administrative powers rather than legislative action to allow a limited number of hospitals to dispense marijuana for certain ailments. He will formally announce his plans in his state of the state speech Wednesday.

more restrictive

The New York Times first reported Cuomo's plan Saturday. It represents an about-face by Cuomo, who had previously opposed medical marijuana. Administration officials told the newspaper the medical marijuana policy will be more restrictive than in states like Colorado and California and subject to New York Health Department standards.

Arizona marijuana advocates likely to aim for 2016 ballot

Associated Press | havasunews.com

PHOENIX — Advocates for legalizing marijuana for recreational use aren’t likely to get a legalization proposal on Arizona’s ballot for voters to decide this year.

The Arizona Republic reports that the advocates are more likely to aim for the ballot in 2016, when an influential advocacy group is expected to fund an initiative.

Supporters of a measure that was intended for the November ballot have gathered just 10,000 of the 259,200 valid signatures needed by July 3 to qualify for the ballot.

The effort has no major financial backing to fund signature gathering.

Voters in Arizona have approved the use of marijuana to treat certain medical conditions such as chronic pain, cancer and muscle spasms.

The state says about 40,000 people have obtained pot cards since the start of the program.

Pot Prices Double as Colorado Begins Recreational Sales

At Medicine Man Denver, a shop that began selling marijuana for recreational use last week, people waited in line to get their first taste of legal weed. Some shouted “Freedom!” to the cheering crowd as they walked out with bags of dope. They also paid about double the cost of medical marijuana.

Customers were charged $45 for an eighth of an ounce of recreational pot, compared with $25 for an identical amount that he sells for medical purposes, said Andy Williams, the president and chief executive officer.

“They’re not used to coming into a facility and paying $25 an eighth, so when they come in, it’s just whatever the price is,” Williams, 45, said by telephone. “Having the ability to buy safe, reliable, quality marijuana in an environment that’s fun and exciting sure beats going in a back alley and saying, ‘Hey buddy, you got a bag?’”

The retail price of marijuana in Colorado has doubled since Jan. 1, when the state became the first to legalize sales to anyone 21 and older. Pot for recreational use sells for an average of $400 an ounce, compared with $200 an ounce that Colorado retailers collect for medical marijuana, said Aaron Smith, executive director of the National Cannabis Industry Association, a Washington-based trade group.

“That’s just supply and demand,” Smith said. “As more businesses open and the businesses get a sense of what the demand is and are able to meet it, the prices will go back down.”

Taxes Charged

About 21 percent in state and local taxes is charged on the sale of recreational dope, said Amber Miller, a spokeswoman for the City and County of Denver.

Colorado voters approved a ballot measure in November 2012 to decriminalize the drug in defiance of federal law, which still classifies marijuana as an illegal substance. A similar measure was approved in Washington state, where shops are set to open later this year.

The changes come as marijuana use is being redefined in the U.S. Twenty states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana use, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is planning to revive a 1980 law to allow some hospitals to make use of the drug for patients with cancer, glaucoma and other illnesses.

Shop owners in the Denver area say they’ve raised prices in response to the high demand as consumers formed lines around the block to buy the drug legally.

Bud Med, a shop in the Denver suburb of Edgewater, rolled out a green carpet for consumers waiting in the snow on the first day of sales, said Brooke Gehring, 33, owner of Patients Choice of Colorado, which has four shops including Bud Med. Customers asked for their receipts with the Jan. 1, 2014, date to keep as a memento, she said.  Continue Reading...

Legalizing marijuana in U.S. gets an unlikely supporter

The growing campaign for legalizing marijuana has a new, unlikely supporter: the National Review.
The conservative magazine published an editorial on Monday applauding Colorado for becoming the first state to make the "prudent choice" of legalizing recreational marijuana, "thus dispensing with the charade of medical restrictions and recognizing the fact that, while some people smoke marijuana to counter the effects of chemotherapy, most people smoke marijuana to get high.

The prohibition of marijuana, its editors argue, has led to "billions in enforcement costs, and hundreds of thousands of arrests each year, in a fruitless attempt to control a mostly benign drug."
"We make a lot of criminals while preventing very little crime," the National Review writes, "and do a great deal of harm in the course of trying to prevent an activity that presents little if any harm in and of itself."

The editorial comes less than a week after the world's first legal recreational marijuana sales began in Colorado, with pot stores seeing long lines and retailers reporting supply shortages, pushing prices as high as $400 an ounce. Continue Reading...

Green Bean Weed Casserole



Ingredients:
2 medium onions
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup bread crumbs
3 tablespoons marijuana butter
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup half and half
1 pound fresh green beans

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Cut onions into the thinnest slices possible. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the onions until they are deep brown and caramelized. Toss caramelized onions with bread crumbs.

Heat the marijuana butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic, pepper, and nutmeg and cook, stirring, for another minute. Sprinkle the flour over the pan and cook, stirring for another couple minutes. Mix in chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Stir in half and half. Cook, stirring often, until mixture thickens. Remove skillet from heat and stir in one-fourth of the onion/bread crumb mixture along with the green beans. Spray a 1 1/2 quart baking dish with cooking spray and fill three-fourths full with the bean mixture. Spread remaining onion/bread crumb mixture over the top of the pan. Bake, uncovered, for about 45 minutes or until mixture is bubbly and the top has browned.
