I contatti con il ministero della Salute continuano ....

Oggi ho letto la corrispondenza ricevuta dal Ministero della Salute in merito alla richiesta avanzata per la richiesta di autorizzazione sulla cannabis.

E' passato ormai quasi un anno e mezzo dalla richiesta. E' bello vedere come il Ministero si curi delle relazioni con attori esterni e mantenga vivo il dialogo. E' un peccato la chiusura del Ministro Lorenzin al dialogo.

Gli annunci contro la "cannabis legalizzata" ormai sono solo spot elettorali per cercare di conquistare consensi. Si vedano le elezioni Romane. Dove con triste caparbietà i due esponenti di una destra illiberale, hanno fatto una fine scontata.

Con questo post lancio una richiesta al Ministro Lorenzin per un incontro. Sicuro di non farLe cambiare idea, almeno vorrei provarLe come un confronto nel merito, come richiesto dall'intergruppo parlamentare, sia oggi più che mai una necessità della democrazia. 

E' ancora una maggiore necessità, la capacità che la politica possa affrontare, in maniera matura, il cambiamento che la società richiede.

Per questo, caro Ministro Lorenzin, sarei felice di poterLa  incontrare. La necessità di cambiamento, rende indispensabile la capacità di individuare interlocutori seri ed affidabili. Il cambiamento richiede coraggio ed è il momento di dimostrare il buon senso di averlo.

Cara Ministro, sarei felice di poter ricevere la Vostra autorizzazione e poter collaborare per il rilancio della coltivazione di cannabis, E' possibile cambiare l'Italia e numerose realtà del mondo antiproibizionista sarebbero felici di convincerVi a combattere insieme la diffusione di stupefacenti piuttosto che scontrarsi in un dibattito dove, il rischio di dimostrare una forte mancanza di competenze, è un rischio istituzionale che, i Ministeri, oggi non possono permettersi, per la serietà e professionalità delle figure che li compongono.

Medical Marijuana Stocks Are Set to Skyrocket in 2016


Medical Marijuana Stocks Are Set to Skyrocket in 2016


Medical marijuana stocks are smashing the broader market by a huge margin in 2016. Companies like Cannabis Science Inc. (OTCMKTS: CBIS) and CannaGrow Holdings Inc. (OTCMKTS: CGRW) have seen shares soar 14.8% and 37% this year, respectively.
And we expect this to continue for five important reasons…

Bullish Reason for Medical Marijuana Stocks No. 5: Surging U.S. Sales

medical marijuana stocks
Sales of cannabis in the United States are projected to increase a hefty 25% this year to $6.7 billion. Driving this explosive growth will be the widespread acceptance of medical marijuana…
According to ArcView Market Research, marijuana use for medicinal purposes alone will bring in more than $10 billion in sales by 2020. That's up from less than $5 billion in 2015.
This massive rise in revenue will also increase the overall value of the market. Bank of America Merrill Lynch reported the U.S. marijuana industry could be worth roughly $30 billion annually by 2020. That's three times bigger than the National Football League's annual revenue of $10 billion.

Bullish Reason for Medical Marijuana Stocks No. 4: Growing List of Applications

Cannabis is used to treat a number of ailments and diseases. The list continues to expand as research continues to grow and bring new findings.

Medical marijuana has been known to treat the following diseases…
  • AIDS, Alzheimer's disease, arthritis, asthma, cancer, gastrointestinal disorders, epilepsy, glaucoma, migraines, multiple sclerosis, and various psychological conditions
Marijuana advocates hope new medical cannabis research will generate even more research and uses for cannabis. That will increase marijuana's credibility among medical professionals.

Bullish Reason for Medical Marijuana Stocks No. 3: Widespread Legalization

Marijuana legalization has become a huge movement across the United States, and it's not slowing down anytime soon.
Currently, there are 25 states – and Washington, D.C. – that allow medical marijuana use. The list of states includes…
  • Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington
That list will increase this fall once more than 20 states vote on cannabis legalization in November.

Bullish Reason for Medical Marijuana Stocks No. 2: Growing Number of Dispensaries

As more states get on board with marijuana legalization, more dispensaries and other pot retailers will open up shop.
In fact, one state is making headlines this week as it prepares to open its first dispensary location…
Yesterday (Wednesday, July 20), the Florida Department of Health granted dispensary organization Trulieve permission to open a location in Tallahassee. It will be the state's first cannabis dispensary and will start delivering marijuana throughout the state. Trulieve is set to open in Tallahassee on Tuesday, July 26.

While Trulieve will only sell to a narrow range of patients, medical marijuana could soon be available for a wider range of conditions. Florida is one of the states set to hit the polls in November to vote on legalization.
More and more officials are starting to realize the benefits of medical marijuana to patients and states. In fact, 2016 could be a breakout year for medical marijuana.
This last reason shows why one of the most controversial topics of 2016 will be bullish for pot stocks in 2016…

Bullish Reason for Medical Marijuana Stocks No. 1: U.S. Politics

Both the Democratic and Republican stances on medical marijuana will fuel research and boost cannabis stocks in 2016.
On July 10 at the Democratic National Committee's 2016 National Platform, Democrats voted on an amendment to legalize marijuana in the United States. The pro-legalization camp won by a narrow margin, with the vote coming in at 81 to 80.
Democrats claimed they will support policies allowing more cannabis research to be done. They will also support changing laws to allow dispensaries to operate without being shuttered or prosecuted by the law.
Meanwhile, the Republican Party will be pressured to act on marijuana legislation at the federal level. It's leaning toward legalizing cannabis as fresh research expands on its effectiveness and revenue-generating possibilities.
Money Morning will continue to cover the cannabis market in 2016. Later this summer, we'll also share a carefully curated list of the best U.S. marijuana stocks to buy. So make sure you check back soon.

Il 25 luglio ... la ricorrenza del vero giorno del vaffanculo

Cari affezionati lettori, il 25 luglio non solo si discuterà della legalizzazione della cannabis, ma sarà anche una occasione di commemorazione di una delle più inutili operazioni proibizioniste italiane, di cui pochi, sfortunatamente, hanno memoria, ma che tutti dovrebbero ricordare.

Il 25 luglio infatti sarà la ricorrenza dell' Operazione Foglia, l'operazione con cui venne chiuso il portale marijuana.it.

Una operazione che coinvolse 60 perquisizioni in tutta italia, con risultati tragicomici. I risultati delle perquisizioni furono sequestri di pc di persone che tra loro neppure si conoscevano, libri sulla cucina della cannabis e poco altro. Oltre ad avere rovinato la vita di 60 persone e 60 famiglie.


BASTA DISCRIMINARE!

Ecco, il 25 luglio si dovranno ricordare tutte le persone ingiustamente incriminate per una abitudine che ha creato più danni perchè considerata illegale, che per avere relmente leso la vita delle persone.

E' proprio quanto ho portato, assieme all'associazione ASCIA, in parlamento nell'audizione tenutasi prima della bocciatura costituzionale della Fini giovanardi, una legge nata proprio dopo l'operazione foglia e che ha decretato il totale non senso, il totale fallimento di una vera caccia alle streghe, che come nel medioevo, ha portato sulla graticola persone innocenti, solo per il tornaconto di pochi.

Ricordate il 25 luglio, ricordate il giorno del vaffanculo, ricordate che questa guerra ha mietuto vittime tra innocenti e dato modo di perseguitare persone normali. Ricordate che i danni causati da questa legge sono stati di gran lunga più dannosi della cannabis stessa.

Il vero danno del proibizionismo è la capacità di condannare un comportamento sulla base di un pregiudizio. I danni della guerra alla droga devono finire e una nuova legge deve essere approvata. e se questo governo, questi parlamentari, non hanno capito che e' finito il tempo di creare inutili allarmismi sulla cannabis (si vedano i miseri risultati dei candidati sindaci di Roma, che hanno perso proprio per la loro anacronistica caccia al drogato), alle prossime elezioni assisteremo ad una ondata che li travolgerà tutti. 

Se non sarà questo governo o questo parlamento a legalizzarla, sarà sicuramente il prossimo, dove i sederi che occupano quelle poltrone, saranno democraticamente rimossi alle prossime elezioni.

Medical Marijuana, Inc. Receives 22 More Permits to Export Into Estimated $10-12 Billion Market in Mexico

Demand for CBD Hemp Oil in Mexico Increases as Mexico's Health Agency COFEPRIS Approves 22 Additional Import Permits for RSHO-X(TM)


SAN DIEGO, CA --(Marketwired - June 28, 2016) - Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC PINK: MJNA)announced today that Mexico's government has approved 22 additional import permits for Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X™ (RSHO-X™), expanding the Company's foothold into a market projected to eventually reach $10-12 billion annually.
On February 2, 2016, history was made when the government of Mexico issued two of the country's first permits to import Medical Marijuana, Inc.'s cannabidiol (CBD) product RSHO-X™ into the country to help two children suffering from severe forms of epilepsy. Since the first import permits were issued, the Mexico government has granted 22 additional permits to treat mostly adolescents in the country suffering from epilepsy.
"With its more than 120 million residents, Mexico represents a potentially vast market for Medical Marijuana, Inc.," the Company's CEO Dr. Stuart Titus said. "Our company's goal is 'access for all' and we have already made great strides in Mexico to get our products to the people there suffering with debilitating medical conditions. As the word continues to spread about the positive results families are experiencing from our products, we expect demand to continue to increase throughout the country."
HempMeds® Mexico, the distributor of Medical Marijuana, Inc.'s RSHO-X product in Mexico, has worked closely with RSHO-X advocate Raul Elizalde and his Por Grace Foundation, which was established to ensure families receive the right to health care and access to CBD hemp oil -- and to lobby for medical marijuana legalization in Mexico. The partners' combined efforts have led to major changes in Mexico's marijuana policy, as Mexico President Pena Nieto announced on April 21, 2016, his intent to move the country away from marijuana prohibition and towards prevention and regulation, including medicinal use.
President Nieto's marijuana reform bill, which authorizes the use and importation of all medicine made with marijuana, was approved by the Mexican Senate on June 15, 2016, but is now postponed for a new vote until September 2016 after Mexico legislators made changes to the original bill.
"The roadblocks medical marijuana legalization in Mexico is currently undergoing as President Nieto's reform bill works its way through the lawmaking process are expected with such major reform initiatives," said Dr. Titus. "Despite the pause on a definitive agreement from Mexico legislators, Medical Marijuana, Inc. and our partners in Mexico, including Raul Elizalde and his Por Grace Foundation, will continue to fight for Mexican families to expand and ensure legal access to medical marijuana for all those in need of it. In the meantime, RSHO-X continues to be available via a doctor's prescription as the first legal cannabis-based product within Mexico."
"We are optimistic that lawmakers in Mexico will be able to work together in putting together a complete marijuana reform bill that will benefit their citizens and continue their country's compassionate position on health," concluded Titus.
