UPDATE Judge’s Ruling on SB-423 Injunction June 30, 2011 PDF UPDATE

Go to the Department of Health and Human Services DPHHS July 1

!!!NEW!! DPHHS NEW Provider/Marijuana Infused Products Provider Form!!NEWS!! UPDATE From the Department of Health and Human Services!!

The judge’s opinion regarding the injunction against SB 423 preserves the right for patients to obtain their cannabis from professional growers rather than having to grow it themselves or find someone who will grow it for them for free.

However, there’s a glitch. A part of the law that goes into effect tomorrow requires that if you are providing medical marijuana to patients YOU MUST BE A REGISTERED PROVIDER WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES (DPHHS). At midnight tonight, there is no such thing as a caregiver. Your registration as a “caregiver” means nothing. YOU MUST BECOME A PROVIDER IMMEDIATELY.

So cancel your plans and get in your car and GET YOURSELF LEGAL AND PROTECTED IMMEDIATELY.

To what degree this will work is uncertain, but a show of intention to be legal and in compliance can encourage the fast development of a process to keep the system moving smoothly.

DPHHS, 2401 Colonial Drive, Helena. Ask to register as a provider. Check their website for the form, and if it appears, as the website claims, fill it out and get it in immediately.

Changes to Medical Marijuana Law

Important Information about the New Medical Marijuana Registry Forms and Application Requirements

New Forms

New forms are now available for the medical marijuana registry (below). The forms include the new requirements for SB423. The last day the department will accept the old forms is June 20, 2011. Any applications received after June 20 must be on the new forms.

Provider and Marijuana Infused Products Provider (MIPP) applications are not available on the website because they will be sent to provider/MIPP applicants. See Provider/MIPP Forms and Application Requirements below for more information about the provider/MIPP application process.

Applications Materials

At the top of each application there is a checklist which tells the applicant the materials that need to be sent with the application. Review the checklist before sending application materials to the department. All applications now require a photocopy of a valid Montana driver’s license or state issued ID, to prove Montana residency.

Fees

New and renewal registry application fees have not changed. They are $25 for a new application and $10 for a renewal application. Provider applications now require a $50 application fee. All fees are for the application processing and will not be refunded if the application is denied or the card is revoked.

Registered Cardholder (Patient) Application Packets

Registered cardholder (patient) applicants require an application form and a physician’s statement. There are two application forms, one for minors and one for all other applicants. There are three physician forms, one for minors, one for applicants who have only a chronic pain diagnosis and one for applicants with a debilitating medical condition other than chronic pain. New conditions have been added to the list of debilitating medical conditions for which physicians can recommend medical marijuana.

Provider/MIPP Forms and Application Requirements

Provider/MIPP applicants must be named by a registered cardholder (patient) applicant, in order to become a provider/MIPP. Provider/MIPP applicants will be sent an application when they are named by a registered cardholder applicant.

Provider/MIPP applicants are not required to submit fingerprints with their application at this time. However, provider/MIPP applicants must submit fingerprints to the department by October 1, 2011. Instructions on how to submit fingerprints to the department and fingerprint cards will be sent to all registered providers/MIPPs when they are available. Providers/MIPPs who do not submit fingerprints to the department by October 1 will be revoked from the registry.

Change Request Forms

There is a new Registered Cardholder (Patient) Change Request Form available.  Currently registered cardholders who wish to add a provider, or make changes to their personal information should use this form to notify the department.  The new PROVIDER CHANGE REQUEST FORM will be posted by July 1, 2011.  Providers can use this form to notify the department of changes to their personal information.  Registered cardholders and providers who do not notify the department of address changes within 10 days of the change, may be revoked from the registry.

All forms must be signed and cannot be submitted electronically at this time.

until the judge issues his decision on Thursday June 30th — just in time.

We don’t know what the judge will do, but we’re all hoping he enjoins
(delays) the entirety of SB 423, which will allow I-148 to prevail for a
while longer.

The legal expenses are higher than we expected. Funds are urgently
needed to pay these costs. Donate online at http://mtcia.org as soon as

Additionally here is a booklet from the Secretary of State’s office with Montana’s signature gathering guidelines.

http://sos.mt.gov/Elections/Archives/2010s/2012/Info/2012_Ballot_Issue_and_Signature_Gatherer_Guidelines.pdf

(It’s a 28 page pdf) but it’s full of great, easy to read information.

You’ll be way ahead in signature gatherer training, if you read this booklet.

This booklet also has copies of the petition gatherer affidavit that you must sign for the notary every time you turn in a petition.

It also has a copy of the signature gathering complaint form; I expect our opponents will be filling these out: http://sos.mt.gov/Elections/Officials/Forms/Petition_Forms/Ballot_Issue_Signature_Gathering_Complaint_Form.pdf

However, we will also send our volunteers out with an ‘incident report’ form for you to document any interactions you may have with someone harassing you or interfering with your signature gathering.

Here also is the training that the Secretary of State supplies for all petition signature gatherers:

http://sos.mt.gov/Elections/Archives/2010s/2012/Info/2012_Rights_and_Responsibilities_of_Signature_Gatherers.pdf

(It’s a 27 page pdf)

Just for fun,

Here is a link to the voter registration form.  Please print as many of these as you can for your signature gathering efforts. (you only need to print page 1). We are still conducting this petition completely as a volunteer effort, so any printing you can do at home will help us out financially.  Consider it a donation.

Repeal Montana Senate Bill 423, Medical Marijuana / Cannabis Act Reform Petition Signature Gathering Statistics Initiative Referendum 124: ALL of Montana

Repeal Montana Senate Bill 423, Medical Marijuana / Cannabis Act Reform Petition Signature Gathering Statistics Initiative Referendum 124: ALL of Montana

HELENA, August 1, 2011 – In just over two weeks, hundreds of volunteers throughout the state have collected more than 11,000 signatures for Initiative Referendum 124, the effort to place Senate Bill 423 on the November 2012 ballot, according to the petition sponsors.

“Our petition effort is succeeding because we have unbelievably dedicated volunteers and because so many people agree that any changes to our medical marijuana law should go to the voters first,” said Sarah Baugh, spokesperson for Patients for Reform – Not Repeal, which is organizing the referendum campaign. “Voters passed this law, and we should all have a say in what happens to it.”

Baugh continued, “Collecting signatures is hard work, and we are pleased with our progress to date. It will be a heroic effort by our volunteers to qualify this measure for the ballot. We might even be able to suspend the new law until Montanans can vote on it. We have momentum.”

In addition to crossing the threshold of 11,000 signatures as of July 31st, the petition campaign has begun turning in petitions to county officials for signature validation. So far, 2,500 signatures have been sent in. Within weeks, the campaign will have data on how many signatures are valid, and in which state house districts the measure is proceeding in. To qualify for the 2012 ballot, the petition needs at least 24,337 valid signatures from 34 different house districts.

According to Rose Habib, volunteer coordinator for Patients for Reform – Not Repeal, over 400 volunteers have been trained and are collecting signatures throughout Montana.

“Our volunteers have been fantastic,” said Habib, “they are dedicating their free time, time away from their families, to talk to thousands of Montanans about this petition. We are pleased with the voter support we are getting. We have 60 days, until September 30th, to gather another 60 to 70 thousand signatures from at least 50 plus house districts to suspend this awful law. This is a monumental effort that has only been done one time before in Montana, at a time when the rules and restrictions on petitioning were not as strict as those that are in place today.”

Montana’s laws on petitioning are rigorous, and organizers are taking precautions in training all volunteers to be sure they follow the law and don’t wind up wasting their own efforts by failing to complete necessary paperwork.

Baugh, the spokesperson for Patients for Reform – Not Repeal, said, “We can all agree that Montana needs effective regulation of medical marijuana, but SB 423 completely repeals what voters did, and replaces it with a new policy that won’t work at all, especially not for the state’s most severely ill patients. Ultimately, we believe voters will reject SB 423 and tell the Legislature to develop a better solution, one that will work for patients as well as for law enforcement and communities.”

UPDATE from the MTCIA June, 23rd 7:30 AM

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2011 From a Helena, Montana Courtroom: Final Day

The feeling in the air is that the severability issue will come into play with this court decision. Some provisions of SB 423 will be allowed to go into effect, some won’t. But it’s just a feeling in the air.

This morning, Mark Long, Narcotics Bureau Chief, will return to the stand. The state will continue its questioning of the witness and then MTCIA attorneys will cross-examine. Then, the state will call Sue O’Connell. Ms. O’Connell works for legislative services. During the 2011 session, everybody talked to Sue. She was the bill drafter for medical marijuana legislation. She’s been the one answering questions since the interim committee last summer. How will she serve the state’s case? Not sure.

Tuesday, June 21th, 2011 From a Helena, Montana Courtroom: Defense

Quick overview of Tuesday‘s courtroom volley… The plaintiffs sat their witnesses, today we get to hear from the defense! Kate Cholewa will be Tweeting again, LIVE!! Follow on Twitter!


Dr. Stowers continued testimony today with the MTCIA lawyer Mr. Devlin asking questions. Dr. Stowers continued in some of the same vein as Dr.Geci. The cross examining was Mr. Molloy for the defense. Mr. Molloy continued the questioning along the lines that patient DO have a primary physician, Dr. Stowers concedes, yes, but most primary physicians do not write medical cannabis recommendations. When asked if the doctor thinks if chronic pain is a condition medical marijuana is recommended too often for, his reply was emphatically NO!!!!

The next witness to the stand was Roy Kemp. Roy administers the medical cannabis program at the Department of Health and Human Services (DPHHS). Mr. Goetz asked Mr. Kemp if he sees unintended but unambigouos consequences of SB423. Roy agreed, and went further and said the provisions are without logical reason. Mr. Goetz then asks if a same sex partner was excluded from providing cannabis to their loved one. Unfortunately Mr.Kemp HAD to respond, yes.

Monday, June 20th, 2011 From a Helena, Montana Courtroom: Prosecution

Lester Grinspoon took the stand in a courtroom in Helena, Montana via Skype in defense of medical cannabis!! Cross examination started at ~11am. Keep here for the fastest blog in Montana!!

Molloy, the defense for the state, is trying to push the point of medical marijuana‘s illegality on the federal level. This is a shady move to say least!!!

MTCIA‘s lawyer, Mr. Goetz,  began again after the lunch recess to put witnesses on the stand. This first day of testimony, June 20, is for the plaintiffs, in this case MTCIA and clients. Tomorrow, June 21, we will  hear from the defense, the state! Keep UPDATED here at MontanaBiotech’s blog!

The first witness on the stand for MTCIA was,  Wendy Gwimmer Oncology, social worker for four years, and a counselor since 1996. She spoke about sick patients having a tough time growing cannabis for themselves, DUH! The next witness to the stand for the plaintiffs was Mr. Hatfield. A patient, Mr. Hatfield, confessed a lack of ability with concern to horticulture and concedes SB 423 would leave him without access to his needed cannabis!

Mr. Goetz then called 79 year old, Mr. Hamp. Mr. Hamp currently caregivers for his wife who is suffering complications from her cancer diagnosis. He states that he currently acquires cannabis for his wife through commercial grow operations.

Mr. Molloy, a lawyer for the defense, tried to attest that his, Mr. Hamp‘s, family will provide for them. Mr.Hamp put forth that he in noway wants to put his family or friends in harms way by signing them up to be his wife’s caregiver.

Dr. Geci was next called to the stand. He is asked, is cannabis recognized as medicine, he responded in the affirmative. Why is it that no one under oath mentions the patent the Gov. has on cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotestants, I think that proves a medicinal efficacy of ALL cannabinoids!! Dr. Geci explained the endocannabinoid system and the effect of CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that contains plenty of therapeutic qualities on its own.

On cross examination Mr. Seacreast peppers Dr. Geci with incendiary, leading questions, has he been denied a license or had a license revoked in another state and how many patients has he personally sighed up for the current system. To these, Dr. Gecic answers a short no to the first series, and 800-1000 to the latter.

The last plaintiff of the day was Dr. John Stowers. He further characterized the clinic process for the court.

Dear Friends,

First,

Many thanks to the many of you who have signed up to gather signatures, sign the petition or be a captain in your area.

If you have not done so, please do it here: http://www.mtcia.org/referendum .  We want to be able to contact you as quickly as possible to sign the petition and /or gather signatures.  If you have awesome organizational  and leadership skills, please volunteer to be a captain.  You can feel free to choose what level of involvement you want.

Second,

I’d like to give a general update of the Repeal SB423 petition status as it is currently.

  • The petition is in its final stage of approval at the Attorney General’s office.  The AG cannot DENY the petition, he can only modify the language of the petition.  It is our constitutional right to use this petition process.   He MAY however, legally take 30 days to approve the petition format.  It appears as though he is going to do that.  However, the petition COULD be approved as soon as next week.  30 days is up on July 5th.
  • Currently your county and district captains are meeting several times a week to set up the support network we will need to handle and organize all the signatures and all the volunteer signature gatherers.  We are working hard, working together, and making it happen.
  • If you have signed up as a gatherer, we have probably not contacted you yet.  Relax, when we’re ready for you, you’ll hear from us.  We are waiting for the petition to be released back to us before we train the gatherers.  As soon as we get the petition back from its final approval, we will schedule training and hit the ground running.  I hope to have all of you our collecting signatures within a few days of getting the petition back from the AG’s office.  We want to use the finalized format of the petition after all its approvals to train the volunteers so there is less confusion.
  • There is a CHANCE we could get professional help with our signature gathering campaign.  IF that happens, we will STILL need all of you to gather signatures.  Professional help will probably only be in the administrative part of the petition: pre-validating signatures, tracking the number of signatures collected per district and county, organizing and prioritizing our volunteer base.  This will be WELCOME help from folks who have done this sort of thing before and are experts at it.
  • We still need help in the more rural areas.  If you live somewhere else besides the Missoula, Billings, Bozeman, Butte, Kalispell, Helena,  and Great Falls areas, WE NEED you to sign up, collect signatures, be a captain.  If you live in the NE section of the state, WE NEED YOU.

Third,

I am continually stunned by the number of folks who have NOT signed up for the E-List : http://www.mtcia.org/e-list

And the number of people who are intimately connected to cannabis use and production who have NOT signed up to help with the petition.  If you are one of those, sign up NOW : http://www.mtcia.org/referendum .  After you sign up, start nagging all your friends.  This is the MOST critical time in the history of cannabis activism in Montana and in the US.  We now wield political power, we are a force to be reckoned with, but NOT if you stay on the sidelines.  It is most important that you stay current on the legal and political cannabis related events.  Hear it here first, don’t count on rumors.

If you are a caregiver or dispensary owner, PLEASE ask your patients permission to sign them up.  It may be nearly impossible to find everyone after July 1st and we are counting on them, literally counting, to sign this petition.

Please make sure you are registered to vote AT your current address.  If not, please re-register immediately.  Here is a form to fill out and bring or mail to your local elections office. http://sos.mt.gov/elections/forms/voters/register.pdf . Print off several copies and make sure your friends are registered to vote.  They don’t have to vote, but they MUST be registered to sign the petition.  Please turn in the forms to your local elections office (listed on page 2 of the form) as soon as possible.

Please follow the www.mtcia.org website; it is updated often with current events, petition and lawsuit news, and easy ways you can help.

Sincerely,

Rose Habib

MTCIA volunteer coordinator

Here’s What!!

TLC, UNODC (United Nations Office on Drug and Crime)

TLC was the method of choice for this study as it provides a means of rapidly and visually analysing a number of samples simultaneously. Unlike the comparison of two samples in order to assess whether they are the same (or different), when quantitative analysis is essential, assessment of origin is qualitative, since the sample under study and the reference samples are, in fact, different. There is thus little point in using more powerful techniques such as high-performance liquid chromatography as the quantitative information provided is likely to confuse the picture. The TLC system was designed to give information on the cannabivarins in addition to the more commonly studied cannabinoids. The principal cannabinoids observed using this system are given in table 2. Sample preparation and detection were as previously described [ 47] [ 48] . The solvent system used was a mixture of chloroform (ethanol-free) and l,l-dichloroethane (15:10) with simple ascending TLC on 10 x 20 cm silica gel pre-coated plates with a layer thickness of 0.25 mm (E. Merck, Darmstadt, G.F.R., Art. No. 5729) [ 46] . Each extract was analysed within one hour of preparation. Twenty different samples of herbal cannabis and cannabis resin from several different countries were subjected to hot-solvent extraction to simulate the illicit preparation of liquid cannabis. The resulting chromatograms were compared with those of the starting material.

Grow Buddy™ created by Montana Biotech

Montana Biotech is proud to introduce an at home THC testing kit to the cannabis consuming public. Grow Buddy™ is a THC testing kit a person could use at home to analyze their own medical marijuana for the comparative presence of cannabinoids! Cannabis is a plant that has been used for thousands of years for its medicinal properties. Now you can test for those cannabinoids at home!

Grow Buddy™ is designed to give maximum results with the minimum of effort. The Grow Buddy™ system is a comparative test made to facilitate the grower, patient, caregiver, or connoisseur to be able to test for cannabinoids at home! Grow Buddy™ was created around a T.L.C. method to help ensure ease of use for ALL ability levels.

The control in this test was ~17% THC by volume… You can tell the size of the dots for Connie Chung (A) and (B) are larger. You can draw you own conclusions!

Connie Chung (A) THC Levels

Connie Chung (B) THC Levels


If you are a patient, you now how hard it is to nail down exactly what strains are best for what, or how to even find the information you need to make those educated decisions. Find a variety/strain YOU like for YOUR condition, test it at home, if it is not already tested, and know what to look for in YOUR medication. Green Crack means very little to a patient who has not used cannabis in their adult lives, but Grow Buddy™ can help that patient know why they like Green Crack for what ails them.

Find/discover varieties or strains that have novel combinations of cannabinoids! Compare relative levels of THC, CBD, CBN, CBC in varieties or strains you know and trust!

Grow Buddy™ will provide an individual the opportunity to select amongst their strains “THE ONE” best suited for further analytical testing by a lab you know and trust. Keep the accuracy of the ever increasing number of potency analysis labs in check! Have an idea of what you have before you spend the TIME and MONEY to get it tested in a lab.

Grow Buddy™ is backed by a potency testing lab with experience in the field of cannabis quality testing. Montana Biotech’s Grow Buddy™ is intended for anyone ready to take their medicine to the next level!

The Grow Buddy™ at home THC testing kit is just $100.00 plus $3.50 for shipping and handling. Order yours today!

UPDATE Montana NORML, Repeal SB423 Referendum Hearing, Lawsuit, Petition News June 20-21 UPDATE

UPDATE Judge’s Ruling on SB-423 Injunction June 30, 2011 PDF UPDATE

UPDATE Montana NORML, Repeal SB423 Referendum June 20-21 UPDATEWe Have IT!! The Repeal / STOP SB 423 Medical Marijuana / Cannabis Reform Petition!! START Gathering Signature!!

Friends,

I put together a free and anonymous one-question survey for caregiver businesses. Click the link to answer, it takes 30 seconds or less.

These have been the most intense weeks of drug policy reform in my 13 year career as a volunteer for Montana NORML. There’s a lot going on, and a lot to cover, so scan the major headings below and read what’s of interest.

Lawsuit News

The MTCIA‘s historic lawsuit (I’m the secretary & treasurer) will be heard in Helena on Monday and Tuesday of next week.   Our side is feeling good about our arguments and I’m optimistic we’ll get some sort of a favorable outcome.  My fellow MTCIA board member Kate penned this overview of what’s happening and what you can do (and not do).

What’s next? The lawsuit could result in one of the following outcomes by the end of the month:

  1. The judge could rule against us, and SB 423 becomes law on July 1st. If MTCIA has the funds available (donate today, please), we’d appeal.
  2. The judge rules totally in our favor, and SB 423 is struck down in its entirety. The state (we presume) would appeal such a decision.
  3. The judge could strike portions of SB 423 as unconstitutional, but allow the rest to become law on July 1st. Depending on the details, either or both sides could appeal.
  4. The judge could conclude that irreparable harm would occur if the law goes into effect, and also that the constitutional issues are important but complicated, and so order a delay of implementation of SB 423 for weeks or months.

We don’t know what will happen, but my personal opinion is that #4 is most likely. We’ll see. Cross your fingers.

Petition News

The Montana Attorney General’s office contacted Montana NORML today to let us know that they’d made some adjustments to the proposed petition language. This is an important step in the process, and we’re hopeful we could have the petition approved in its final format before the end of the month. We’ll see — they are allowed by law to take their time until July 5th.

In the meantime, a network of hundreds of volunteers statewide has been developing the systems required to gather the maximum number of valid signatures in all the right places, as quickly as possible. It’s a thing of beauty, watching a large group organize around a shared goal, pouring in their passions, talents, and free time.

If you’d like to get involved, go here: http://www.mtcia.org/referendum/

Currently, we particularly need volunteers and leaders in the Missoula area. So, get to it, and spread the word.

Email our Volunteer Coordinator Rose at petition@mtcia.org with any questions.

I received a comment on my blog recently mentioning the comparison of Alpha Nova’s Cannalytics™ cannabinoid thin layer chromatography testing system and Montana Biotech’s Grow Buddy™ T.L.C. test kit. Thin layer chromatography is a method for testing different compounds using a solvent and glass plates coated with silica gel and a dye for visualizing the results. The method is OLD, and nobody has the patent on it! According to the UNODC, T.L.C is not used for quantification, but THC,CBD, CBN, qualification. The thin layer chromatography method must be used with a standard to be quantitative in any capacity.
