But What About Medicinal Marijuana?

first_imgA number of supporters have said that while they are in total agreement with us about opposing the legalisation of marijuana for recreational use, they are wanting to know our position on medicinal marijuana.WHAT GROUPS LIKE THE GREENS, NORML AND THE DRUG FOUNDATION ACTUALLY WANTBy negotiating a referendum on marijuana, the Green party have done us all a favour by declaring the true intention of many marijuana campaigners – full legalisation for personal use. Groups like NORML and the Drug Foundation have used medicinal marijuana and decriminalisation as a smokescreen.And our MPs will soon be voting on a private members bill from Green MP Julie Anne Genter (shown above). While disguised as ‘medicinal marijuana’, it is effectively a subtle legalisation of marijuana – a grow-your-own-dope bill with very little control or safeguards. Even the media has labelled it that! An individual can become a dope grower/dealer for a relative or friend. And the qualifying medical condition criteria is very wide and subjective.WHAT DOES THE RESEARCH ACTUALLY SHOW?Two research reviews just published find only low-quality evidence that cannabis may help nerve pain and this wasn’t for smoking pot –  it was for oral mixtures sprayed into the mouth. No other realm of medicine considers “smoking” therapeutic. For example, we don’t smoke opium to get the benefits of morphine.Another recent report which reviewed findings from 79 different studies concluded that there was low-quality evidence suggesting that cannabinoids were associated with improvements in nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy, weight gain in HIV infection, sleep disorders, and Tourette syndrome. There was moderate-quality evidence to support the use of cannabinoids for the treatment of chronic pain and spasticity. But cannabinoids were associated with an increased risk of short-term adverse events.In an editorial accompanying this study, Dr. Deepak Cyril D’Souza, a psychiatrist with Yale University’s School of Medicine, says that legalising marijuana for medical use may be jumping the gun before good quality evidence is in, and that if a pharmaceutical company, for example, wanted to get a drug approved for a medical condition and they only submitted anecdotal data, there’s absolutely no chance that that drug would be approved. And the big question, he says, is how routine daily use – the way one might use marijuana to treat a medical condition – affects the body and the brain over the long term. Concerns have been raised about memory loss, panic, paranoia and other severe disorders.Professor John Whitehall is Foundation Chair and Professor of Paediatrics and Child Health at the University of Western Sydney, and Associate Professor in the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine at James Cook University. He spoke at our Forum on the Family this year.He warns (in this superb article):Can marijuana prevent fits? Despite the rare but exciting anecdotes, no one knows, because no reliable trials have been published anywhere in the world, according to the reputable Cochrane system of review. The drug has been available for medical purposes, including epilepsy, in California for almost twenty years and is now available in twenty-two US states, but there is nothing to report! Despite repeated claims of “potential” for the drug, there is silence, though all humanity is crying out for better anti-epileptic drugs. This silence could mean there is no convincing effect, or that the doctors who prescribe it have no idea of what is happening to their so-called patients. If it were a miracle drug, it could be expected that the purveyors of marijuana would trumpet statistical success.”Dr Whitehall argues that “anecdotes should not be the basis for medical policy” and says that a similar Queensland bill “subordinates medical standards to an anecdote-wielding lobby.”WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MEDICINAL MARIJUANA IS ALLOWED?A just-released study in the US published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry found that marijuana use and marijuana use disorders – in which people use the drug in unhealthy or abusive ways – increased at a “significantly greater rate” in states with medical marijuana laws than in states without the laws. The lead researcher from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health said that these laws seem to send a message that use of this drug is safe and acceptable in some way. They said that possible adverse consequences of illicit cannabis use due to more permissive state cannabis laws should receive consideration by voters, legislators, and policy and health care professionals.Dr Gregory Pike is a Bioethicist and the Director of the Adelaide Centre for Bioethics and Culture (ACBC) who spoke at our Forum on the Family in 2015. He is the Chairman of the Board of the Australian Drug Treatment and Rehabilitation Programme, and a member of The Institute on Global Drug Policy.He warns that:“changing the image of cannabis by promoting it as medicine is powerful.  There doesn’t need to be much nuance in the idea that medicines are good and abstracted from that nasty business of “illicit drugs”.  The latter wreck lives whereas the former heal people. The image change gets into the collective consciousness and people start to think differently, gradually allowing a medical paradigm to overtake even strong contrary evidence of harm.”SO WHERE SHOULD WE GO FROM HERE?Family First is supporting further quality research into the components of the marijuana plant for delivery via non-smoked forms, and the establishment of a programme that allows seriously ill patients to obtain other non-smoked components of marijuana approved and listed by the Ministry of Health via their doctor.We support the NZ government’s cautious and researched approach around this issue, and we also support a compassionate response to those in real need.But the Green’s private members bill fails the test in terms of public health, public safety, and protecting our young people.Here’s our official policy….The rapid expansion of research into the components of the marijuana plant for delivery via non-smoked forms. (Supported by NZMA)The establishment of an emergency or research program that allows seriously ill patients to obtain non-smoked components of marijuana before final Ministry of Health approval, and at appropriate / realistic pricing.the Government instruct the Ministry of Health to update the prescribing guidelines for pharmaceutically based THC derivative medicines to include Sativex (and Elixinol) as a medicine under the Medicines Act 1981 and to continue to make pharmaceutically based THC derivative medicines available to treat serious medical conditions when traditional methods have failed.Prevent “designated agents” and so-called “dispensaries” that are fronts for marijuana stores and do not follow appropriate standards of medical care e.g. CaliforniaSAY NOPE TO DOPEBut we definitely oppose the legalisation of marijuana for recreational use. Hopes and lives go up in (marijuana) smoke.The grass is not always greener!We hope this clarifies the issue. Please consider signing our petition opposing any liberalisation of our drug laws.last_img read more

Reminders about dicamba

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Mark Loux, Ohio State University Extension herbicide specialistThis is the time of year when we received our first call about dicamba problems in soybeans in 2017. We can probably expect any problems to become evident soon, based on the timing of postemergence applications and timeline for development of symptoms.Off-target issues have already developed in states farther west and south, and we would expect at least some to occur here, unless we’re really lucky. The symptoms of dicamba injury show in new soybean growth within approximately 7 to 21 days after exposure, and most of our soybeans receive postemergence applications from early June on.It’s been a challenging year to properly steward postemergence applications. We still face some challenges in finding appropriate weather to catch weeds before they become too large, and before soybeans are too advanced in growth stage. There are a number of weather, application and adjacent crop factors to consider when applying dicamba, and applicators should review labels as frequently as needed to ensure legal application.We have two requests relative to reporting of off-target dicamba issues. First, we ask that if at all possible, they be reported to the Ohio Department of Agriculture. It is important for ODA to have a record of these, in order to be able to make sound decisions on mitigating risk from dicamba as we move forward, or decide that no additional mitigation is necessary. Reporting to ODA allows them to be able to investigate the cause of off-target issues, and develop first-hand knowledge that can aid in making these decisions.As we ask this, know that we are fully aware of the reasons why off-target injury issues are not reported to ODA. The companies involved are once again at least talking a good game about investigating dicamba issues that are reported to them, and we would certainly encourage reporting any incidents to them also.Experience in 2017 would indicate that for at least one company, on-site investigations occurred only if reported by the party who purchased and applied the dicamba product. Reporting only by the affected party did not warrant the same level of investigation. Maybe this has changed.The second request concerns how OSU Extension staff and clientele communicate anything pertaining to off-target dicamba problems to OSU Weed Science, including Mark Loux. Due to litigation on dicamba occurring somewhere besides Ohio, OSU has been subject to an open records request asking us to provide files we have related to our experience with dicamba — off-target investigations, research, etc. This is the first time in my career this has occurred. In addition to the time we will have to put in to deal with this, there’s just the general hassle of it all.There is also another aspect to this as well — we cannot necessarily protect the confidentiality of anyone sending emails to us. My specific request is this: from this point on please do not send anything in written or electronic form to us about dicamba, including emails, photos, etc. Should you need to contact us about a dicamba issue, please feel free to call. We still want to provide information and service on this issue, and are certainly not trying to shut off communication. Moving forward, we are just trying to avoid maintaining any type of records that could be asked for in this type of request — fun times to be an Extension weed specialist.last_img read more

FCC Looks To Modernize 911 With Text Messaging

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… The Federal Communications Commission has opened a Notice of Inquiry, seeking public comment on how best to update the nation’s 911 services. The FCC wants to expand 911 beyond the phone call for help, bringing advanced communication technologies to the decades old emergency program.According to the FCC, there are more than 650,000 911 calls made daily, and nearly 70% of those come from mobile devices. However, “right now you can’t text 9-1-1,” said FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, noting that during the Virginia Tech school shootings in 2007, some witnesses tried to text 911 but the texts simply never went through and the messages weren’t received by dispatchers.The FCC isn’t simply interested in incorporating text messaging into 911 service. It’s also keen to explore how other data can be collected by the 911 system, including location information, photos, and videos. Furthermore, Genachowski says the “Next Generation 9-1-1” will also allow emergency calls to be placed by devices, as well as humans – “devices like environmental sensors capable of detecting chemicals, or highway cameras, security cameras, alarms, personal medical devices, and consumer electronics in automobiles.” Updating the emergency response system will be quite a substantial undertaking, in terms of technology and training. The FCC’s move to address 911 is part of the agency’s National Broadband Plan, and as Genachowski noted in his remarks, there are still many 911 call centers (and communities) that do not have broadband Internet. The FCC’s announcement came yesterday, alongside its vote to adopt new Net Neutrality rules. center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Government#web audrey watterslast_img read more

How hard is it to bring precision analytics to agtech?

first_imgCate Lawrence On first thought, agtech seems something of a contradiction. Agriculture involves growing crops. There’s no real world shortcut or fast track in that plants require planting in appropriate seasons with access to sun, water and soil nutrients and time to grow. By comparison, tech is about speed, rapid prototyping and timely deployment.But agtech is actually an evolving nexus between the two practices of agriculture and next-generation connected tech.See also: Platagon partners with Dubai university to create urban agriculture centerAgriculture is an industry that, while rooted firmly in traditions passed down through generations of farmers, is responding to technical advances in machines, robotics, analytics and software. One of the companies at the forefront of this revolution is Arable Labs. Headed by CEO Dr Adam Wolf, their team includes product engineers, biologists, and mathematicians and they work to solve the critical issue of accurate forecasting in the food supply chain.I spoke to Dr. Wolf to learn more about their progress over the last year. The company had the evening before, come runner-up at a competition by water innovation accelerator, Imagine H20. Arable have previously worked with the Met service for Zambia, to facilitate weather monitoring as well as the New York City Parks Service for assistance with weather tracking for storm management so they are well placed to apply their technology to water technology.But their biggest success of late is a $4.25 million Series A round of funding led by Middleland Capital’s agriculture technology fund and S2G Ventures. With the new funds, the company will support the expansion of data science and analytics for the food and ag supply chain, fuelled by mass production of the Arable Mark IoT device (formerly known as PulsePod) later this year.“We have really outstanding investors who understand the space. They are well connected, they know people who are either out ahead in growing, processing or retailing. When you’re in food and agriculture it’s a real secret world that is far enough from most people’s lived experience that it’s hard to really discern what the pain points are who gets what margin,” explained Wolf.“It’s important for us to be really focused on supply chain risk, which is the relationship between the producer and the processor and from the processor to the retailer. To understand how those contracts between those parties are structured and what’s the risk of failure. For example, what happens when a restaurant chain asks for so much cilantro and but then the farmer delivers half as much as they promised. This happens all the time. And so for someone to be able to get the people in the room and go, ok let’s get some conversation going. Well, that is very powerful. That’s where we’re fortunate to have these investors.”The Arable Mark delivers a level of plant health data that is unmatched in the industry. The Mark measures more dimensions of physical meteorology, at greater spatial density than any weather model or station network, and more plant attributes, at a greater frequency than any satellite or aircraft. By measuring over 40 individual environmental data streams, the Mark is the most data-rich device available in IoT.The Mark’s launch coincides with the all-new cloud-based Arable Insights software platform for crop consultants, farmers, large-scale producers, and food processors in the agricultural supply chain. Insights enable each stakeholder to communicate with trusted business partners based on real-time field-level data for the first time ever. It is now possible for managers to benchmark crop performance and seasonal progress across hundreds of fields, while also being able to drill down and understand the details of growth or weather events.  The data synthesis of weather and crop growth enables Arable to predict timing, quality perishability, and yield.“When we think of our business model as hardware-enabled software as a service where the data from the hardware enables an array of different services. What we’ve learned is that data from the field is like a well from which many people can drink” notes Wolf. Tags:#Agtech#AI#Arable#Connected Devices#Internet of Things#IoT#predictive analytics#weather Kickstarting a Stagnant Company Related Posts WordPress for Enterprise – How This Open-… How to Make the Most of Your Software Developer… How big is automation in farming?The general public tends to have a highly romantic image of farmers as salt of the earth folk who eschew the conveniences of modern technology for the simple life. But the reality is that farmers are hacking their tractors, drones are being deployed for crop surveying, and a farmer is more likely to consult a data platform than an almanac before sowing crops. Wolf explained that one of the values their company promoted was customer service:“The initial vision that we had was to treat the farmers with more respect, with good design and price, and it will reward us later.”A 2012 Agriculture Census revealed that during the past 30 years the average age of U.S. farmers has grown by nearly eight years, from 50.5 years to 58.3 years. Does this mean that people will be replaced by robots? Wolf counters this with the comment:“Someone who is growing 35,000 acres of leafy greens to deliver it to restaurants, you want that person to be really good and consistent at it. They really have figured out how to grow it at scale and deliver safe affordable food on time.But young people don’t want to go into low-paid jobs. In places with year-round production, there’s a lot of families, but the children of the Latino workers are going to college, they’re studying software engineering, they don’t want to work in the fields. So the farms have real concerns about maintaining the workforce that they already have and capturing the institutional knowledge of older generations. There is a tendency towards consolidation. So then that team is stuck with managing an ever more sprawling field.We’re definitely not displacing people in what we do, we’re empowering people with productivity. By being able to automate data collection, people get better jobs. People can prioritize and plan where to put their focus.”The company will begin shipping the Mark this spring and make it more widely available through distributors later this year.

Moto G7 Plus leaked again, this time revealing 27W fast charging support, red colour option

first_imgThere have been so many leaks and reports on the Moto G7 series that almost nothing is left to the imagination. Earlier this week, some hands-on images of the Moto G7 Plus leaked out that showed off the waterdrop display and dual cameras. Now, we have yet another set of leaked images that give us a few more key details about the upcoming phone. It seems the G7 Plus will come with a 27W TurboPower fast charging support, which is quite interesting.A 27W fast charging support would be a major jump compared to current Moto phones that support TurboPower charging. This info is mentioned on the sticker on the Moto G7 Plus taken out of the retail box, leaked by TudoCelular. The box and unit shown in the live images seem pretty legit, but these are still leaks and they should be taken with a pinch of salt. The live images once again show off the Moto G7 Plus’ waterdrop display on the front, which sees thinner bezels all around and a droplet notch. The glass back panel is shown in a deep red colour, which could be one of the colour options. The rear panel once again gives us a good look at the dual camera system and the fingerprint sensor embedded in the Moto batwing logo.The retail box also mentions that the 16MP main camera on the back will get OIS support, which is always nice to hear. This along with a “faster” fast charging support sound like interesting upgrades to the Moto G line. There is no information yet on whether the same features can be expected on the regular Moto G7 as well.advertisementThe Moto G7 Plus is said to sport a 6.2-inch display with a FHD+ resolution. It will be powered by a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 636 chipset with up to 6GB of RAM. The retail box mentions 4GB of RAM, which is likely the base mode. A 16MP + 5MP dual camera system is expected on the back, while the front will see an 8MP camera, as per past reports. Rumours say the Moto G7 Plus will come with a 3,000mAh battery, which seems unlikely for a Plus-sized model. A capacity between 3,500mAh to 4,000mAh sounds more plausible.Motorola is set to announce the Moto G7 Plus along with the Moto G7, G7 Play and G7 Power on February 7 at an event in Brazil. The phones should make their way to India soon after.ALSO READ | New Moto G7 Plus live images show off waterdrop display, dual camerasALSO READ | Moto G7, G7 Plus, G7 Play and G7 Power full specs and design revealed on Motorola’s websitelast_img read more
