U.S.: Medical Cannabis Institute Launches Website For Healthcare Pros, Caregivers, and Patients


Site closes an education gap since the science of medical cannabis is generally not part of today's medical training

Scitent, Inc., a provider of eLearning business solutions for healthcare organizations, nonprofits, and associations, on Monday launched The Medical Cannabis Institute, a website featuring continuing medical education (CME) on medical cannabis topics.

The site is designed to help educate a growing global community of healthcare professionals, caregivers, and patients who want and need to learn about the science behind and clinical application of medical cannabis, according to Scitent.

The Medical Cannabis Institute's charter group of content providers includes Patients Out of Time, the Society of Cannabis Clinicians, and Healthy Choices Unlimited, and comprises distinguished faculty and healthcare professionals who are experts in medical cannabis.

As of September 1, 23 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana and three states have pending legislation. As the legalization of medical cannabis advances across the United States, The Medical Cannabis Institute brings together content from experts in the field to close the education gap.

Global Campaign: Cannabis For Therapeutic Purposes Is A Human Right


An international consortium of medical cannabis organizations is demanding that humans, regardless of state or allegiance and without qualification, be able to use cannabis therapeutically. In a joint declaration, the organizations from Europe and North America refer to Article 3 of the Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations in 1948. The declaration is the beginning of a worldwide campaign on the use of cannabis for therapeutic purposes.

The declaration was published in six languages on a dedicated Web site, and it states: “Every medical doctor has the right to treat his or her patients with cannabinoids and cannabis products according to the rules of good medical care” and “every patient has the right to access cannabis and cannabinoids for medical treatment supervised by a medical doctor, regardless of social status, standard of living or financial means.”

“The declaration is based on overwhelming scientific evidence. It takes a strong stance against the prejudices and untruthfulness of lawmakers, other political players and ‘experts’ with limited medical knowledge on the issue,” says Franjo Grotenhermen, MD, executive director of the International Association for Cannabinoid Medicines (Germany).

Oregon: National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics Set For May 8-10 In Portland

The eighth annual National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics, sponsored by the nonprofit Patients Out of Time (POT) in conjunction with the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine, is set for May 8-10 in Portland, Oregon.

The conference, entitled "The Endocannabinoid System and Age Related Illness," is accredited to provide continuing education credits for healthcare providers.

This Patients Out of Time clinical cannabis educational series began back in 2000. Through its conferences and ongoing educational initiatives, the organization has led the way in the field of medical cannabis education, helping patients and medical professionals understand why marijuana use continues to be a viable medical option for multiple conditions and diseases.

The upcoming conference will be held at the Portland University Place Hotel and Natural College of Natural Medicine beginning on May 8. It has in past years attracted top experts in the medical cannabis field, from the arenas of both research and clinical use.

Topics will be wide-ranging, but will focus on the human endocannabinoid system and the role that cannabis and/or cannabinoids may play in age-related illnesses, since the Baby Boomers are reaching retirement age.

Patients Out of Time is "a compassionate, science-based education forum for the restoration of medical cannabis knowledge." It is made up entirely of volunteers: patients, clinicians and scientists who are involved in the medical cannabis field.

U.S.: Military Veterans Needed For Medical Cannabis Study


U.S. military veterans of all time frames are needed to join a medical marijuana study, "One More Mission."

Ten thousand Vets are to be part of a minimum one year study/commitment to accumulate data on the use of cannabis by Vets who have a primary or secondary diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms, according to Al Byrne (US Navy, Ret.), cofounder and director of the group Patients Out of Time.

Vets must be in the 21 states and DC that have positive medical cannabis laws and have met their states requirements as a cannabis patient. Privacy is guaranteed, according to Byrne.

"Please circulate the website far and wide," Byrne said.

"Vets are not treated equally in the U.S. - they receive "medical treatment by geography," Byrne said. "Vets in states without a medical cannabis regulation are not treated in VA facilities if they use medicinal cannabis."

"In 21 states and DC the VA treats them with care," Byrne said. "In the other states they are escorted from VA property."

"Medical treatment by geography is unethical, illogical, immoral and a disgrace to the U.S.," Byrne said.

Byrne invites everyone to call your federal Senator and Representative and demand equal treatment of all our Vets.

"It's the least you can do and I encourage you all to do more, Veteran or citizen," Byrne said. "When your country is wrong - change it."
