    How do you make oil from a marijuana plant, anyone know? I'm worried smoking pot may be causing me migraines? But I'm not sure, I've been smoking for twenty years now. And I've had them all my life, off and on. I heard someone say something about starting when your brain isn't all the way developed, and I was 14. Just wondering if anybody has been through this, or knows anything about that. Cause someone said instead of smoking, I should get the oil?

    I'm brand new as everyone else is that has migrated to this point. I'm so happy to have found this forum. I have so many questions and I'm wondering when I should bring up some of these topics. Is there anyone that's new that is willing to explain the ropes to me as far as this web site is concerned. It kinda reminds me of my Green Bay Packer web gang. So help me out so I don't ruin my rep in one day

Bill To Offer Legal Protection To Medical Marijuana Patients Introduced In Florida

Florida lawmakers have introduced a joint resolution that seeks to enact legal protections for patients who use cannabis under the advice of their physician.
House Joint Resolution (HJR) 1407 seeks to authorize the legislature to establish regulations regarding the physician-supervised use of marijuana, and to mandate an affirmative defense from criminal prosecution to select patients. If passed, HJR 1407 would place the issue on the 2012 ballot, where voters would decide 'yes' or 'no' on the proposal.

You can watch archived video of a recent press conference in support of the measure here.

According to a recent statewide poll, 57 percent of Floridians support allowing authorized patients legal access to marijuana as a medicine.

HJR 1407 has been referred to two legislative committees: the Judiciary Committee, Criminal Justice Subcommittee, and the Health and Human Services Committee.

Full text of the measure is available here.

Further information is available from NORML of South Florida at: normlsfla@gmail.com. Other Florida NORML affiliates may be contacted here.
