Medical-marijuana Group Wants To Expand Ohio House Bill | The Columbus Dispatch

Our efforts are strictly limited to providing Ohios medical patients with access to medicine that will help cure their conditions, or at least ease their pain. We urge every Ohioan with compassion for the suffering of others to join us in this vital effort, Bridge said in a statement. Ohio Patients Cann would like to see its proposal merged into House Bill 33 medical-marijuana legislation sponsored by a bipartisan group of legislators that would legalize cannabis-derived medicines for those with seizure disorders. Rep. John M. Rogers, D-Mentor-on-the-Lake, one of the bills sponsors, said he met with Ohio Patients Cann but has not agreed to expand the proposal. My immediate concern is the kids who have severe epilepsy, Rogers said, noting that he was motivated to co-sponsor the bill because of the medical problems of a neighbors 11-year-old daughter. Theres about 250 children in Ohio that have similar symptoms or maladies, he said.

For the Dashners…if these bills don’t pass, they’re planning on going back to Colorado. “After seeing what it did to her, I mean I don’t know how many Epilepsy patients are out there but I’ve seen suffering. And this would just…I think it would change the whole world. It changed our world,” Dashner said. The response on the MyFoxAustin Facebook page was been overwhelmingly in favor of medical Marijuana. But several viewers just simply said “no” without much explanation as to why they felt that way. Joe Roysdon says “The problem with legalizing it is controlling it, keeping it out of the hands of children and determining who should get it.

Political Support For Medical Marijuana Begins To Waft Away – Daily Pilot

Suggested changes to Monahan’s earlier draft, some of which came from Councilwoman Katrina Foley, included an annual business license fee as high as $10,000, charging $10 monthly for each square foot within a dispensary and taxing 15% of its gross receipts. Monahan called those add-ons a “joke.” “I cannot agree with that in any way, shape or form,” he said. Other suggestions were prohibiting home delivery of marijuana supplies and implementing a cost-recovery system to City Hall, should dispensaries attract so-called “excessive” amounts of police attention. Monahan contended that prohibiting delivery hurts the neediest of patients. “The sickest of the sick need it delivered,” he said. “And that’s who we’re talking about.” Councilwoman Sandy Genis said she feared delivery drivers would be susceptible to theft of their supplies or money. Foley said marijuana dispensaries in Costa Mesa would attract the undue influence of cartels selling drugs for profit, not their possible medical benefits. “To me, this is a money grab,” she said. “It’s not a money grab by the City Council. It’s a money grab by what I see as loads and loads of cash that are going to be streaming through our city with no controls whatsoever.” Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer agreed. “It’s millions and millions of dollars,” he said.
