U.S.: New Global Energy Signs Deal With CanaCard For Medical Marijuana Compliance

New Global Energy, Inc. on Tuesday announced that it has signed an exclusive 20- year agreement with Alternate Health Group's CanaCard, a regulatory and compliance software system that will enable all U.S. states with legal medical marijuana laws in place to utilize and monitor the physician prescribed protocol.

According to CanaCard, its proprietary, patented platforms provide a private and secure system for HIPAA compliant interactions and monitoring. A unique patient identification code allows users to access a database designed to securely store personal data, transactional volume, research data and patient management tools.

The database is accessible only by the patient, certified doctors and licensed nutraceutical providers. The patient receives an actual card that monitors the prescription and tracks the balance so the patient knows how much medical marijuana is available on a daily basis and physicians can control the patient's access and limit consumption.

An important benefit to the U.S. states, according to the company, is CanaCard's ability to calculate and track tax revenue that is due based on each individual state's tax code.

"We are also ICD10 compliant in that CanaCard requires a code that corresponds with the disease in order to satisfy Drug Enforcement Agency requirements," said Howard W. Mann, CEO and president of Alternate Health (www.alternatehealth.ca), and a member of the New Global Energy Advisory Board. "We are currently the only one with this patented technology, which will be required by law as of September, 2015."

U.S.: Marijuana Conviction On Your Record? Criminals Wanted For Scholarship

You might think that criminal record of yours limits your opportunities. But now there's a $1,000 law school scholarship available where applicants must prove they've already been in trouble with the law.

The Appelman Law Firm, LLC, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, says the idea is designed to reward those who've made better choices after a conviction -- "those who have managed to turn their lives around and intend to pursue a career in criminal defense."

"There's a real need for passionate attorneys in criminal defense," said Avery Appelman, the firm's founder. "Nothing instills a great passion for justice quite like having suffered through the process yourself."

That's where the Appelman Law Firm Criminal Defense Scholarship comes in, and Appelman isn't alone in thinking a criminal record shouldn't be a barrier to making a better life.

"There are just too many ways to run afoul of the law for anyoen to think they are immune," Appelman said. "A mistake can easily lead to an arrest or jail."

Attempts to determine just how many criminal statutes exist have failed, because there are so many. An estimate from the government in the 1980s put it at about 3,000 in the federal system alone. Shortly afterward, another study from the American Bar Association said that was too low a figure, but couldn't come up with a better number.

Adding in state crimes only makes the situation worse. For many, avoiding a criminal record has become more a matter of luck than of being a good citizen.
