MJ Biz Report: Cannabis Dispensaries Being Targeted Countrywide

The report reveals that San Francisco dispensaries are being hit hard during the protests and it is becoming increasingly obvious it isn’t looters but rather organised criminal gangs taking advantage of the current chaos.

MJ Biz write…

Several business owners told Marijuana Business Daily they believe the damage was done by professional criminals rather than the protesters themselves.

According to media reports and social media chatter, dozens of cannabis shops in California, Illinois and Oregon were damaged or looted since the protests began Friday night in response to Floyd’s death while in police custody in Minneapolis.

Some of the cannabis retailers reportedly looted in California included Blum, Cookies, Harborside and MedMen, with San Francisco Bay Area shops being particularly hard-hit.“Every dispensary in Chicago is closed indefinitely” to prevent further looting and to allow the businesses to clean up, the Chicago Tribune reported.

It’s not yet clear whether insurance will cover the losses – likely in the tens of thousands of dollars, if not more – sustained by cannabis retailers.

The Farmacy Berkeley, which opened for business in early 2020, was broken into three times over the weekend, owner Sue Taylor said.

“They were armed robbers,” she said, recounting that several cars pulled up outside her shop after midnight Saturday.

According to Taylor, the vehicles carried roughly 30 individuals who overwhelmed her security guards and broke into the shop.

Police arrived only minutes later, however, and prevented further losses, she said.

“They busted through the front door and did a grab-and-snatch. They took five, six minutes, and the police were there within six minutes,” Taylor said.

The James Burton Story- Medical Cannabis in the Netherlands – Volteface

1968 – A group of young American boys are sitting around a campfire, talking, laughing and telling stories. You would almost forget that they are here to fight a war. One of them is James Burton, only 19 years old. It feels good to forget about the horrors of war they witness on a daily basis, whether that be with alcohol, cigarettes, marijuana or heroin. A few nights before, someone was killed in their bed in the middle of the night. So although they might not say it out loud, everyone is scared to go to sleep at the risk of not waking up again. It’s better to go to sleep at seven o’clock in the morning, than seven o’clock at night. Everyone is stressed and most of all exhausted, the danger being that when you are stressed out, you make mistakes and  making mistakes in the jungle of Vietnam comes at a high price. The group around the campfire is passing around a shotgun with marijuana in it. They blow and the smoke from the pipe goes in the barrel, while being…

GP’s concerns over easy access to pill, medical marijuana

A Coast GP has raised concerns about legislative changes making access to the pill and medicinal cannabis easier, warning convenience should not trump consultations with doctors.

Medwell Clinic Caloundra Dr Kiran Varma welcomed changes to prescription rules but said visits to family GPs remained important.

“While convenience and increased access to medications are considered positive outcomes, I worry about the potential lack of depth of clinical reasoning in a pharmacy dispensing interaction that normally underpins a medical consultation with the patient’s family doctor,” he said.

The call came after the State Government passed new laws allowing women access to oral contraceptive pills which are not on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme from pharmacies without a valid repeat prescription.

Provisions used to only included those listed on the PBS when Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced in March she would make changes to allow women more access to the pill without renewing their prescription.

Pharmaceutical Society of Australia Queensland branch president Shane MacDonald said the move was important to allow for continued treatment.

The laws are expected to come into effect in late 2020.
