Medical Cannabis Activist Wants To Import ‘Ganja Oil’ Into Bermuda

BERMUDA:  Medical ganja activist Alan Gordon, in an open letter to Jamaica’s Health Minister copied to The Jamaica Gleaner, asked for a permit to export enough medical ganja oil extract for over 300 Bermuda cancer patients to have 18,000 large doses over a 2-3 month period.

Gordon says that Bermuda’s Cabinet has previously approved import permits from elsewhere on a per-patient basis, but were experiencing trouble with availability, price and quality which Jamaica seems well suited to alleviate.  Gordon also claims people medical tourists have already been quietly coming to Jamaica for illicit cancer treatments with cannabis oil, because it has shown great promise as a tumour-shrinking anti-cancer drug in hundreds of lab and live animal studies, and thousands of humans in the US, Canada, England, Australia, and elsewhere.  Gordon expressed his concern that many patients are too sick to come to Jamaica, and should not be denied access.

Gordon has also specified that the oil must be grown organically by Rastafarians, as a matter of social justice and “fair trade” principles.  Gordon says he is not a Rastafarian but says that after the gravely ill patients, first consideration must be given to Rastafarians as a way of expressing society’s remorse for oppression of Rastafarians under the old laws.


Would Rick Scott Sign A Medical Marijuana Bill?

FLORIDA:  Florida’s sudden rush to legalize marijuana for the sick or dying is heading toward a potentially important speed bump: Gov. Rick Scott.

While Republican and Democratic lawmakers are rushing to advance bills legalizing some forms of marijuana for medicinal use, the governor has refused to say whether he would sign a bill – even one favored by GOP lawmakers which would only legalize a non-euphoric version nicknamed “Charlotte’s Web.”

The effort has drawn parents like Holley and Peyton Moseley, a Gulf Breeze couple who adopted a child RayAnn with severe epilepsy. They have become well-known advocates for legalizing Charlotte’s Web after visiting Colorado where the new medicine was developed.
