3 MMJ Updates

Let’s see what’s new in the medical marijuana file.


Cannabis Use & Diabetes: A history of cannabis use is inversely correlated with diabetes mellitus, according to an epidemiological review published online ahead of print in the journal Epidemiology.

Investigators at Michigan State University, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics performed a meta-analytic study assessing cannabis use and diabetes in the general population.

“Recently active cannabis smoking and diabetes mellitus are inversely associated,” they determined. Authors estimated that subjects with a history of cannabis use were about 30 percent less likely to have diabetes compared to non-using subjects.

From Colorado — cannabis use while on probation / parole: Democrat Gov. John Hickenlooper has signed legislation into law permitting qualified patients to access medical cannabis use while on probation or parole.

House Bill 1267 states: “The possession or use of medical marijuana … shall not be considered another offense such that its use constitutes a violation of the terms of probation. … [T]his act is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, and safety.”

And in Hawaii, mmj is getting closer to being a reality: House and Senate lawmakers have approved legislation to establish a system of medical dispensaries for the state’s estimated 13,000 medical marijuana patients. The measure, House Bill 321, now awaits action from Democrat Gov. David Ige.

The measure permits the state “to issue eight dispensary licenses statewide; provided that three dispensary licenses shall be issued for the city and county of Honolulu, two dispensary licenses each shall be issued for the county of Hawaii and the county of Maui, and one dispensary license shall be issued for the county of Kauai.” Qualified patients will be permitted to obtain up to four ounces of marijuana or marijuana-infused products over a 15-day period.
