Sanford Village officials met with Village Attorney Matt Kuschel Friday morning via Zoom at Jerome Township Hall to iron out the next step in possibly licensing marijuana businesses in Sanford.

The start of the meeting was open to public comment. Sanford resident Robert McManus attended but said he had no comment; he just came for information.

Sanford Village President Dolores Porte received a belated letter from former council member Marlene Glinski thanking the council for considering the matter. She said supplying marijuana would increase the village’s tax base and generate additional revenue.


Porte said the closed session was to seek advice on proper marijuana regulation and determine the village’s next step. The session would also cover zoning changes.

There were comments on social media claiming that the meeting had not been published in accordance with Michigan’s open meeting law, which requires notice of a special meeting to be published 18 hours before it is to be held. does not take place. The meeting was properly posted at least 21 hours before at Jerome Town Hall and on the village’s Facebook page.

Kuschel, of the village law firm Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes, also attended the December 13 council meeting, where residents filled the boardroom, with most backing the village to go forward with membership.

The problem started when resident Sue LaBonville offered to open a micro business. According to the Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency, a microenterprise license allows the holder to grow up to 150 marijuana plants, process them on site, and sell products directly to the recreational marijuana user. She encouraged the village to agree to allow marijuana, which sparked the discussions.

Michigan marijuana sales produced $135,039,178 for December in recreational sales and $32,928,546 in medical marijuana sales, according to the Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency. For all of 2021, Michigan marijuana sales were $1,311,951,737 for recreational/adult use, and medical marijuana sales were $481,225,540. It was unclear what the state’s tax revenue was on those amounts.

Council is expected to discuss the matter in more detail at the next council meeting at 7 p.m. on February 24 at Jerome Town Hall.

A chemical found in live cannabis plants may help protect human cells against coronavirus infections, research has found.

A study by scientists from Oregon State University (OSU) and Oregon Health and Science University found that two acids found in hemp, a type of cannabis plant widely used in fabric, paper and as medicine, were able to block the gears of the virus. which causes Covid-19

The researchers said both compounds can bind to the spike protein of the SARS-Cov-2 virus, which it uses to invade and commandeer human cells and which gives the coronavirus family its name.

However, the compounds probably cannot be consumed by any of the traditional methods of consuming cannabis as a drug, meaning they would have to be harvested separately to make a specific drug.

“These cannabinoid acids are abundant in hemp and in many hemp extracts,” said main author Richard van Breemen of OSU’s Global Hemp Innovation Center.

“They are not controlled substances like THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, and they have a good safety profile in humans. And our research showed that hemp compounds were equally effective against SARS-Cov-2 variants. “

The study, published Monday in the peer-reviewed Journal of Natural Products, screened numerous plant extracts such as red clover, wild yam, hops, and licorice for potential affinity with the spike protein Covid.

The spike protein is a microscopic structure protruding from the body of the virus, featuring chemical receptor sites that have evolved to bind to the outer parts of human cells. If another chemical binds to these receptors, it can block them, rendering them useless.

The two compounds that worked the best were cannabigerolic acid, known as CBG-A, and cannabidiolic acid, known as CBD-A, both of which are precursors to the most well-known chemicals in high-dose drugs. cannabis base.

The former only exists during the growth of the cannabis plant, while the latter is converted into CBD, one of the key ingredients in recreational and medicinal cannabis, through combustion, vaping or cooking.

The chemicals worked well against alpha and beta variants of the coronavirus, suggesting they might also work against Omicron and other mutations.

“Our data shows that both CBDA and CBGA are effective against the two variants we examined, and we hope this trend will extend to other existing and future variants,” van Breemen said.

Maine gardener: Sixty-three plant species could be banned for sale under new state proposal https://remedii.net/maine-gardener-sixty-three-plant-species-could-be-banned-for-sale-under-new-state-proposal/ Sun, 09 Jan 2022 09:00:03 +0000 https://remedii.net/maine-gardener-sixty-three-plant-species-could-be-banned-for-sale-under-new-state-proposal/ Under a proposed list of plant species that could become illegal to import or sell in the state, the Mainers would lose some popular landscape plants – but that’s probably a good thing.

Under a proposed list of plant species that could become illegal to import or sell in the state, the Mainers would lose some popular landscape plants – but that’s probably a good thing.

Several very popular trees, shrubs and perennials feature on this list of 63 species. Many others, however, I had never heard of before.

The stakeholder committee tasked with proposing which plants to ban plans to finalize its list on Jan. 18, according to state horticulturalist Gary Fish. The new list will be added to the 33 forbidden plants about five years ago. The state prohibits the sale and import of plants that spread quickly and supplant native plants, which over millennia have co-evolved with native wildlife to provide essential food and shelter.

Apparently, vinca, or common periwinkle, is invasive. The state plans to ban its import or sale. Photo by Peggy Grodinsky

The Rugosa rose, the fragrant beach rose widespread all along the coast and very popular in gardens in Maine, is included. The other species on the list as it stands are wisteria, vinca (aka periwinkle), Japanese lilac, Callery or ‘Bradford’ pear, Buddleia davidii (aka butterfly bush), hardy kiwi and Spirea japonica; the latter includes the popular cultivar “Magic Carpet”.

When I interviewed Fish last summer, shortly after the committee – which is made up of professionals from the landscape industry – began its work, he predicted that the rugosa rose would not make the list. I wondered what had changed.

“I think it’s because a few new (scientific) papers have been published on rugosa roses appearing on islands off the coast of the Netherlands,” Fish said.

The Rosa rugosa are native to Asia. They were introduced to America in the mid-19th century, during the Civil War era. As it turns out, rose hips – the orange-red fruit that contains the plant‘s seeds – fell into the ocean and floated long distances to form colonies on islands. Botanists along the coast of Maine and in Canada have also reported such a spread.

And Fish noted that the Maine Natural Areas Program, a state conservation program that the committee relies on for its list of prohibited plants, has long considered the rugosa rose to be a highly invasive plant.

The fish have designated Japanese lilac as another plant on the proposed list that is a regular seller at local nurseries. The arboreal lilac is related to but different from the common lilac found in the gardens of many people, which is native to Europe and is not affected by the ban.

Buddleia also sells well in Maine, but don’t be confused by its common name, butterfly bush. Buddleia is not related to Asclepias tuberosa, the butterfly weed, native to Maine and host to monarch butterflies, whose numbers are in sharp decline.

I was surprised to find periwinkle, or vinca minor, on the list. Decades ago, my wife Nancy and I planted the white and purple flowering versions of the ground cover and have even recommended it in this column as a good ground cover. We had to cut it on occasion to keep it from spreading over our lawn, but we haven’t seen it sow long distances from where we planted it. But, as I’ve learned about unrelated topics over the past couple of years, we have to trust the science.

Another point: the rules for the 33 original plants and the 63 additional species proposed only prohibit the sale or import of the plants. Homeowners who already grow them in their gardens are not required to dispose of them. That said, the withdrawal might be something to consider.

Early on, the stakeholder committee made the decision to exclude “hitchhiker plants” from the list, Fish said. If it had included them, the list would have expanded to 30 more species. Nurseries do not intentionally sell so-called hitchhiking plants; on the contrary, they appear in the ground with the plants that customers intend to buy.

After the committee votes on Jan. 18 on a final list, the proposal will be made public and the 30-day public comment period will begin. The list will then go to the commissioner of the Ministry of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry and the Attorney General’s office, so that they can approve the language.

The new regulations, once finalized, provide for a transition period of one or two years so that nurseries can sell any newly banned plants they have. To enforce the bans, state horticultural assistants visit all commercial outlets selling plants during a year. Enforcement of the existing law has not been problematic, Fish said. A few chain stores sold euonymus (burning bush) and honeysuckle, but the plants were removed.

I’ve gone through the entire list of plants that would be banned under the new proposal, and I don’t think gardeners in Maine will suffer from not being able to use them. Many gardeners turn to native plants anyway. And there are many non-natives without harmful side effects.

LAS CRUCES, New Mexico – The Las Cruces city council room was packed with about 75 people, with 80 more watching via a Zoom conference call.

State officials spoke to residents and those interested in the marijuana industry.

Speakers answered questions on all types of marijuana-related topics, including water permits, safety, and even whether plant cloning is legal.

Robert Sachs, with New Mexico licenses and regulations specific to cannabis, explained transporting the plant, saying, “It will have to be grown in New Mexico, made in New Mexico, sold in New Mexico, and it cannot be moved. This also applies to consumers. They cannot buy cannabis and move it across state lines. “

Potential producer Christopher Baca told ABC-7, “There are a few unanswered questions, gray areas if you will, which we have tried to get questions and solidify the answers to.

Fighting veteran Victor Corral is concerned his involvement in the cannabis industry could affect his VA status, as marijuana is still illegal in the eyes of the federal government.

Corral said: “Of course I am, but we have to change the laws so that we can contribute to the industry.”

Prosecutions for possession of cannabis for personal use in Ireland have almost halved over the past year, according to figures from An Garda Síochána.

he number of people charged or summoned for simple possession of cannabis until mid-December 2021 has decreased significantly from the previous year, largely due to offenders being given a warning instead of a warning. appearance in court.

The numbers show that Ireland is on a global shift towards drug decriminalization.

Malta made history in mid-December when it became the first country in Europe to allow limited cultivation and possession of cannabis for personal use, following a vote in parliament.

It should be followed by a wave of similar plans across Europe, with Luxembourg due to give the green light to a comparable measure.

Several other countries, including Germany and the Netherlands, are also on the verge of adopting a more lenient approach to cannabis possession.

Garda figures show 11,127 prosecutions in Ireland for possession of cannabis in 2020, but the figure had fallen to 5,957 for 2021 through the week ending December 14.

Gardaí attributes the main reason for the reduction in prosecution to the addition of possession of cannabis and cannabis resin for personal use to the adult warning program at the end of 2020.

Caution is administered in a guard station where there is evidence of the commission of an intended criminal offense and prosecution of the offense is not required in the public interest.

New figures also reveal number of prosecutions for cultivation of cannabis plants or opium poppy in Ireland fell from 197 in 2019 to 310 in 2020. Prosecutions for the sale and supply of cannabis in Ireland fell from 1,968 cases in 2020 to 1,283 in mid-December 2021.

Prosecutions for importing or exporting cannabis in Ireland peaked at 16 in 2020, while there were less than 10 incidents relating to 2021.

Uruguay was the first country in the world to legalize the production and sale of marijuana, while it is legal for recreational use in many states in the United States.

Cannabis is the most widely used illicit drug in Europe and the world, according to the European Monitoring Center for Drugs and Drug Addiction.

In its most recent report this year, the European Union agency said regulatory responses are also becoming more variable and complicated, as several countries allow the availability of cannabis products under certain circumstances for therapeutic purposes. , and some suggest the tolerance of certain forms of recreational consumption. .

“While most health and social issues remain focused on illicit cannabis use, it becomes a more complex area in terms of definition and response,” he said.

The report states that cannabis use can lead to or worsen a range of physical and mental health, social and economic problems. He said cannabis use is highest among young adults and the age of first cannabis use is lower than most other illicit drugs.

It is estimated that around 16 million young Europeans between the ages of 15 and 34, or around 15% of this age group, have used cannabis in the past year, with the figure rising to around 20% in the age group. ages 15 to 24.

He pointed out that cannabis use is often experimental, usually lasting only a short period in early adulthood.

But the report added that a minority of people develop more persistent and problematic consumption patterns, with these problems associated with regular, long-term, high-dose cannabis use.

These issues can include poor physical health, such as chronic respiratory symptoms, and mental health issues such as cannabis addiction and psychotic symptoms.

Social and economic problems were also mentioned due to poor school performance, failure to complete education, decreased performance at work or involvement in the criminal justice system.

Whole-plant cannabis linked to significant reduction in seizures in children with severe resistance to treatment epilepsy, suggest the first research.

In a small series of cases, children with severe treatment-resistant epilepsy treated with a range of cannabis-based medicinal products (CBMP) made from whole plant extracts reported an 86% reduction in monthly seizures.

All participants had no improvement with the traditional antiepileptic drugs (DEA).

The study adds to a small but growing body of research looking at whole herbal cannabis medicines containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in pediatric epilepsies.


Rayyan raja zafar

“Although we have previously noted The superior efficacy of whole-plant medical cannabis is a previous group of children, to find that the treatment effect resulted in an average 86% reduction in seizures is remarkable and testifies to the clear clinical value of this intervention ”, lead author Rayyan Raja Zafar, doctoral student at the Center for Psychedelic Research and Neuropsychopharmacology, Imperial College London, UK, said Medscape Medical News.

The discoveries were published online December 14 to BMJ Paediatrics Open.

Superior to CBD?

The retrospective case series included 10 children under the age of 18 who were recruited by MedCann Support and End Our Pain, charities that represent children who use medical cannabis to treat incurable epilepsies. The data was collected from the parents or caregivers of the patients between January and May 2021.

Patients had a range of epilepsy etiologies and reported a mean of 7 (± 4.58) AED before the onset of CBMP. Two patients had no improvement in symptoms after taking Epidyolex, a cannabidiol (CBD) approved by the European Commission in 2019 for the treatment of rare forms of epilepsy. The formulation was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration in 2018 as Epidiolex.

All participants received CBMPs including Bedrolite (<1% THC and 9% CBD), Bedica (14% THC and <1% CBD), Celixir 20 (<1% THC and 20% CBD), Sweet Pink CBD (<1% THC and 10.6% CBD) and Althea 100 (<1% THC and 10% CBD). The drugs were prescribed to patients by clinicians at the National Health Service or by private medical offices.

Patients consumed an average of 5.15 (± 6.8) mg of THC per day and an average of 171.8 (± 153.3) mg of CBD per day.

All patients reported fewer seizures, ranging from a decrease in monthly seizure activity from 62.5% to 100%. The average drop was 86%.

“It appears that whole plant cannabis is superior to CBD alone, and the reasons are speculative,” Zafar said.

“We know that THC has independent antiepileptic activity; however, much less is known about the role that other cannabinoids and minor terpenes play in the cannabis plant, ”Zafar added.

“There have been preclinical tests to suggest that they also have anti-epileptic activity, and therefore the combined effects of the whole plant products appear to work better than a single isolate.”

Selection bias?

Commenting on the findings of Medscape Medical News, Tyler Allison, MD, associate professor of pediatrics at Children’s Mercy Kansas City, Missouri, noted that researchers chose patients based on their long-standing use of whole herbal medicinal cannabis oils, introducing a bias in selection.

“The answer is always interesting, and I think it needs to be investigated further with better parameters in place to reduce bias, but I don’t think it is fair to assess the magnitude of the decrease in seizure frequency when the study population consisted only of patients who responded to treatment, ”said Allison, who was not involved in the research.

“How many patients have tried whole plant cannabis oil and found it not to be effective or at least more effective than their other anti-epileptic drugs?” ” He asked. “This information is missing and could have a significant impact on the importance of the study.”

Selection bias and the small study group also make it difficult to compare the results with previous studies of isolated CBD involving larger patient populations, Allison added.

An intention-to-treat randomized study comparing a control group treated with one form of isolated CBD product and a second group given whole plant cannabis oils would eliminate this bias, he noted. “Then they could analyze seizure frequency the same way they did and compare between groups to see if whole plant cannabis oil shows a reduction in seizure frequency compared to a drug. similar, ”he said.

It’s a design that Zafar noted that he and his colleagues are interested in pursuing.

“We are starting research to better understand the role of cannabinoids and minor terpenes in the treatment of this disease because we want to better understand why we are seeing a superior clinical effect in whole herbal medicines,” he said. declared.

He added that they also plan to partner with academic and business collaborators for additional retrospective and forward-looking studies on these issues.

The study was not funded. Zafar did not report any relevant financial relationships. Disclosures for other authors are listed in the original article. Allison does not report any relevant conflict of interest.

Police came across a cannabis factory at a Coventry address after discovering that the electricity supply had been bypassed during a raid on another property.

And following the accidental discovery in the Glover Street house, Cheylesmore, they arrested Flamur Shera.

Homeless Shera, 45, was jailed for 12 months after pleading guilty at Warwick Crown Court to being involved in the production of cannabis.

David Jackson, prosecuting, said: “This offense was brought to light by accident.”

He explained that on October 13, police were executing a warrant at a house in the area when they were alerted that the power supply to another property had been bypassed.

They traced the bypassed supply to a house on Glover Street where they looked through the mailbox and saw there was a cannabis farm inside.

Officers also saw Shera exit the back door, and he was arrested and detained.



Warwick Crown Court

Inside the property, they discovered that the loft was full of cannabis plants and had been fitted with fans, transformers, and an irrigation system.

The front chamber had similar equipment and a large number of smaller plants, while the master chamber contained fully mature plants and evidence of a previous harvest.

The back chamber served as a drying room, with harvested cannabis plants hanging on strings to dry, and there were also three large bags of harvested and dried cannabis buds.

Mr Jackson said there was no evidence of an appraisal, but there were a total of 257 plants in the house.

Came to the country as a tourist

When interviewed Shera, an Albanian national, said he came to the UK as a tourist in July and a Romanian gave her a loan of £ 1,000 as an advance on the salary he would receive when he accepted a job in the construction industry. .

But the job didn’t materialize, and he was taken home and assigned to tend the plants to pay off the debt.

Defending Derek Johashen said: “He came to this country mainly as a tourist, and while he was here he met a Romanian who told him he could apply for a work permit to work. here and send money to his family.

‘He applied for a work permit but was unsuccessful but before it was refused this man had loaned him £ 1,000 to send to his family. He has a wife and two children, and all three have health problems.

Mr Johashen said Shera was then taken home to tend the cannabis plants, adding: “He fully accepts his responsibility, but he saw no other way to get out of debt.”

Imprisoning Shera, Judge Peter Cooke told her, “I accept your case as one where you had a lesser role, but it was a lesser role on a large commercial cannabis farm.

“Although I accept that everything was in place some time before your recruitment, this business was relatively sophisticated, there was a high volume of plant material in cultivation and there were rolling crops.

“You were doing what you were doing with the expectation of a financial reward. For you, the £ 1,000 offer was enough to give you the temptation.

“Without a doubt, there was an element of you being exploited, but it was a smoother, less coercive way of what the court often sees, and you had the keys to the premises which gave you free movement.”

Many people undergoing chemotherapy will experience oral problems that affect the mouth, salivary glands, and lips. Various lip balms are available that can help soothe dry, chapped lips resulting from chemotherapy.

People undergoing chemotherapy experience a range of side effects from the treatment. Some people will have dry mouths and lips, which can be painful and uncomfortable.

In this article, we take a closer look at which lip balms are suitable for people undergoing chemotherapy. We provide a list of specific products to try and suggest alternative treatments.

In addition to killing cancer cells, chemotherapy damages healthy cells. For this reason, it can cause a variety of side effects throughout the body.

Side effects that affect the mouth can include mouth sores, salivary gland problems, and a dry mouth.

During chemotherapy, a person’s lips can become dry and chapped. They can try using a moisturizing lip balm to relieve this side effect.

A person should apply lip balm several times a day for the best results.

A person should consider a few factors before purchasing a lip balm. These include:

  • Fragrance: A fragrance-free lip balm is usually preferable, as scents can cause irritation and skin reactions. They can also cause additional dryness of the lips.
  • Ingredients: People may wish to look for soothing and moisturizing ingredients, such as petroleum, beeswax, or ceramides. In one study 2020, the researchers applied a natural lip balm – comprising beeswax, almond oil, virgin coconut oil, honey and distilled water – to a blade of glass and have it tested for safety and irritation. They discovered that these natural ingredients can be safely applied to the skin of the lips.
  • Small packaging: A person may wish to purchase a product the size of a handbag so that they can easily carry it with them.

A wide variety of lip balms are available for purchase online. Below, we take a look at 10 of the best products for those undergoing chemotherapy.

Please note that the author of this article has not tried these products. All information is based on research and correct at the time of posting.

Burt’s Bees Lip Balm

Burt’s Bees Lip Balm uses beeswax, vitamin E, and a dash of peppermint oil, with each tube containing 0.15 ounces (oz). This product nourishes, softens and hydrates dry lips.

The company uses all-natural ingredients and manufactures naturally flavored products that are cruelty-free. However, this lip balm is not vegan due to its use of beeswax as an ingredient.

The product has 4.9 out of 5 stars from over 35,000 user reviews on Amazon.

Vaseline Lip Therapy Stick

Each of these sticks contains 0.16 oz of lip balm. It is available in four types:

The main ingredient is pure petroleum jelly, which helps soothe and hydrate dry lips. The pink lip product also provides a light tint to the lips.

Vaseline is made from oil, so it may not be suitable for people on a vegan diet. The product also may not be cruelty-free.

The product has 4.5 out of 5 stars from over 2,500 reviews on Amazon.

Eco Lips Bee Free Plant Pod Flavorless Vegan Lip Balm

This environmentally friendly product is suitable for people on a vegan diet. It is unscented which is good for sensitive and dry skin. However, the company also offers lemon-lime, superfruit, and sweet mint variants of this product.

The company claims to manufacture its products using renewable energies.

Susan’s CBD Hemp Lip Balm

This product contains 100 milligrams of hemp CBD isolate per 0.15 oz tube of lip balm. Hemp comes from the cannabis plant but does not cause a “high”.

The product also contains beeswax, vitamin E, and various essential oils, such as coconut, sweet almond, and avocado. While these ingredients help soothe chapped lips, CBD has anti-inflammatory properties that can aid healing.

However, the product is not suitable for vegans.

Defiant Beauty Lip Balm

This fragrance-free product contains almond oil, beeswax and cocoa butter for dry lips.

The company recommends that people apply it every half hour while undergoing cancer treatment.

This coconut lip balm also has an SPF of 15 to protect lips from UV exposure.

The main ingredients are coconut oil, Tahitian monoi and sweet almond oil.

These ingredients nourish and rehydrate the lips.

The ingredients are plant-based, raw and natural, so the product is suitable for vegans.

Badger Balm Classic Lip Balm

Badger Balm products are available in different flavors. However, people undergoing chemotherapy can become sensitive to chemicals, including perfumes, so flavorless balm may be the best option.

This lip balm contains organic extra virgin olive oil, beeswax and rosemary to hydrate dry lips.

It has a light texture and a glossy hue, and it is rich in antioxidants.

The product is organic but not suitable for vegans.

Original Booda Butter Lip Balm
