Trumpnomics is Happening – Comparing Candidate Trump To President Trump on Economic Policy

Almost a year ago we outlined a predictable approach President Trump would take toward domestic economic policy if he were to win the 2016 election.

Local veterans push for medical marijuana access

More and more veterans are openly supporting medical use of marijuana and individual rights to choose to use cannabis if they want………….

“INDIANA — A former Marine says access to medical marijuana means life or death for many veterans across Indiana.

Jeff Staker is the founder of Hoosier Veterans for Medical Cannabis.

The Kokomo veteran hopes pressure from the state’s American Legion next week will push lawmakers to create a statewide medical cannabis program.

Already, members of Post 6 in Kokomo unanimously approved the resolution. The only holdout was the commander, who refused to sign the resolution. Instead, he forwarded it along to District 5, which represents 10 north central Indiana counties.

District 5 approved it too, so now it heads to the state American Legion department, in an attempt to move the effort forward more quickly.

For years, medical marijuana bill proposals have come and gone for at the state house.

This year though, Staker is convinced that the voice of veterans will be too loud for legislators to ignore.

His organization put out this 15-second ad across television stations ahead of the legislative session starting.”

The Medical Minute: Israeli Study Finds Anti-Cancer Potential in Cannabis

Exciting news for medical research for the cure and/or treatment of cancer………

“Scientists at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa recently released the preliminary results of a cancer study that examined the effects of 50 varieties of cannabis with 200 different cancer cells. While it’s still far too soon to draw any conclusions, their findings are cause for optimistic curiosity.

The researchers noticed that cannabinoids have the ability to slow tumor growth and even selectively promote cancer cell death in a process known as “apoptosis.” These findings replicate those uncovered in a Spanish study from 2013, which specifically looked at THC as a potential anti-cancer agent. Now scientists in Israel wonder how different combinations of cannabis derivatives, and their dose and delivery method, affect different types of cancer cells.”

Hemp, Inc. on What’s Next in 2017 for the Industrial Hemp Industry

Lots of positive changes ahead for industrial hemp in the U.S.

 

SPRING HOPE, NC–(Marketwired – Jan 4, 2017) – As festive gatherings and yuletide celebrations come to an end, Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) executives are looking forward to 2017, especially since there were transformative strides made within the industrial hemp industry in 2016. And what better way for the industrial hemp industry to ring in the New Year than with Rhode Island’s “Hemp Growth Act”? The “game changing” Act went into effect on January 1, 2017. Laws governing industrial hemp have now evolved in a total of 33 states (Alabama, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia).

Rhode Island’s Hemp Growth Act, which took effect January 1, 2017, was originally written so that members of the Narragansett Indian Tribe could grow hemp. However, lawmakers later broadened the language to allow any licensed grower. Under the “Hemp Growth Act” individuals will be allowed to obtain a state license to cultivate hemp for things such as clothing, food or other commercial products. With the newly implemented Act, hemp is now treated as “an agricultural product that may be legally produced, possessed, distributed and commercially traded. The Department of Business Regulation will be responsible for establishing rules and regulations for the licensing and regulation of hemp growers and processors. The Department is also authorized to certify any higher educational institution in Rhode Island to grow or handle or assist in growing or handling industrial hemp for the purpose of agricultural or academic research.” (Source: normal.org)
