Low-THC Cannabis vs. Medical Cannabis

Low-THC Cannabis: Patients with cancer or a condition that causes chronic seizures or muscle spasms may qualify to receive low-THC cannabis. Low-THC cannabis has very low amounts of the psychoactive ingredient THC and does not usually produce the “high” commonly associated with cannabis.

  1. Schedule a face-to-face consultation with a qualified physician who has undergone the training required to order cannabis for patients. Physicians may only order low-THC cannabis for a patient if he or she has treated that patient during the immediate preceding three months.
  2. The physician must determine that the risks of ordering low-THC cannabis are reasonable in light of the potential benefit for that patient. If a patient is younger than 18 years of age, a second physician must concur with this determination, and such determination must be documented in the patient’s medical record.
  3. The physician must obtain voluntary, informed consent in writing from the patient, or the patient’s legal guardian, to treatment with low-THC cannabis after su iciently explaining the current state of knowledge in the medical community of the e ectiveness of treatment of the patient’s condition with low-THC cannabis, the medically acceptable alternatives, and the potential risks and side e ects.
  4. An ordering physician must enter an order of low-THC cannabis for the named patient into the Compassionate Use Registry, and update the registry to reflect the contents of the order. The physician must deactivate the patient’s registration when treatment is discontinued.
  5. The ordering physician must maintain a patient treatment plan that includes the dose, route of administration, planned duration, and monitoring of the patient’s symptoms and other indicators of tolerance or reaction to the order for low-THC cannabis. The physician submits the patient treatment plan quarterly to the University of Florida, College Of Pharmacy, for research on the safety and e icacy of low-THC cannabis on patients.
  6. Finally, a patient may fill their order at a qualified dispensing organization. The dispensing organization will verify the identity of the patient or legal representative, as well as the existence of an order in the Compassionate Use Registry. A dispensing organization may not dispense more than a 45-day supply of low-THC cannabis.
  7. The medical use of low-THC cannabis does NOT include the following:
  • The possession, use or administration of low-THC cannabis by smoking.
  • The transfer of low-THC cannabis to a person other than the qualified patient for whom it was ordered.
  • The use of low-THC cannabis on any form of public transportation, in any public place, in a qualified patient’s place of employment, if restricted by his or her employer, in a state correctional institution, on the grounds of a preschool, primary school, or secondary school or any school bus or vehicle.

Medical Cannabis: If a patient is suffering from a condition that has been determined to be terminal by two physicians, he or she may qualify for medical cannabis. This product can contain sufficient levels of the psychoactive ingredient THC to produce the “high” commonly associated with cannabis.

  1. First, patients must schedule a face-to-face consultation with a qualified physician who has undergone the training required to order cannabis for patients. You can find a complete list of qualified physicians here. Physicians may only order cannabis for a patient if he or she has treated them for the immediately preceding three months.
  2. To qualify for medical cannabis, a patient must be diagnosed with a terminal condition that is attested to by his or her physician. That diagnosis must be confirmed by a second independent evaluation from a board-certified physician in an appropriate specialty for that condition. Finally, patients must have considered all other treatment options for the terminal condition currently approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration.
  3. The physician must obtain written informed consent of the patient or the patient’s legal guardian to treat with medical cannabis that includes:
    1. An explanation of the currently approved products and treatments for the patient’s terminal condition.
    2. An attestation that the patient concurs with his or her physician in believing that all currently approved products and treatments are unlikely to prolong the patient’s life.
    3. Identification of the specific investigational drug, biological product, or device that the patient is seeking to use.
    4. A realistic description of the most likely outcomes of using the investigational drug, biological product, or device. The description shall include the possibility that new, unanticipated, di erent, or worse symptoms might result and death could be hastened by the proposed treatment. The description shall be based on the physician’s knowledge of the proposed treatment for the patient’s terminal condition.
    5. A statement that the patient’s health plan or third-party administrator and physician are not obligated to pay for care or treatment consequent to the use of the investigational drug, biological product, or device unless required to do so by law or contract.
    6. A statement that the patient’s eligibility for hospice care may be withdrawn if the patient begins treatment with the investigational drug, biological product, or device and that hospice care may be reinstated if the treatment ends and the patient meets hospice eligibility requirements.
    7. A statement that the patient understands he or she is liable for all expenses consequent to the use of the investigational drug, biological product, or device and that liability extends to the patient’s estate, unless a contract between the patient and the manufacturer of the investigational drug, biological product, or device states otherwise.
  4. The physician enters the order of medical cannabis for the named patient in the Compassionate Use Registry and updates the registry to reflect the contents of the order. The physician must deactivate the patient’s registration when treatment is discontinued.
  5. The physician maintains a patient treatment plan that includes the dose, route of administration, planned duration, and monitoring of the patient’s symptoms and other indicators of tolerance or reaction to the medical cannabis. The physician submits the patient treatment plan quarterly to the University of Florida College of Pharmacy for research on the safety and e icacy of medical cannabis on patients.
  6. Finally, a patient may fill their order at a qualified dispensing organization. The dispensing organization will verify the identity of the patient or legal representative, as well as the order in the Compassionate Use Registry. A dispensing organization may not dispense more than a 45 day supply.
  7. The use of medical cannabis does NOT include the following:
  • The possession, use or administration of medical cannabis by smoking.
  • The transfer of medical cannabis to a person other than the qualified patient for whom it was ordered.
  • The use of medical cannabis on any form of public transportation, in any public place, in a qualified patient’s place of employment, if restricted by his or her employer, in a state correctional institution, on the grounds of a preschool, primary school, or secondary school or any school bus or vehicle.

Do you recognize this man??? He was found with more than 350,000 images of child porn on his church laptop!

HERNANDO, Fla. — A former music director at a Florida church has been charged with multiple child sex charges after a coworker trying to prank him stumbled upon more than 350,000 images of child pornography on the man’s laptop, police said. Chad Everett Robison, 36, of Hernando, is charged with three counts of video voyeurism, three counts of lewd and lascivious exhibition and one count of promoting the sexual performance of a child, according to the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office. He remained in the Citrus County Jail on Monday in lieu of $26,000 bond. “I want to emphasize that this is a textbook case of an online sexual predator,” Sheriff Mike Prendergast said during a Thursday afternoon news conference, which was streamed live on Facebook. “It will not be tolerated in Citrus County, and we’re going to vigorously pursue people who commit crimes like this.” Prendergast detailed some of what investigators found on Robison’s laptop. “We have videos of Robison having virtual sex with an underage female who is not local, as well as trying to coerce young girls to show him their breasts while he masturbated on camera with them,” Prendergast said. “In addition, the defendant was secretly videoing and recording females in his restroom at his home over the course of the time that he gathered up these digital images and videos. We have yet to identify those victims, so additional charges may be forthcoming as we continue to press through the evidence that we’ve gathered.”

 

Prendergast said in a news release last week that the investigation thus far has “just scratched the surface,” and that investigators anticipated finding additional suspects as the probe continues. Capt. Brian Spiddle, with the Sheriff’s Office’s Major Crimes Unit, said some of Robison’s victims could be local, but that others have already been identified out-of-state and in Canada. Investigators have contacted the law enforcement agencies in those jurisdictions. “It’s going to be a very difficult and long process to find those who have been victimized by this man,” Spiddle said in the news release. >> Read more trending news Robison was arrested Thursday following a two-month investigation that began when a coworker at Seven Rivers Presbyterian Church in Lecanto found the inappropriate images on his laptop, which Robison had left behind at work, Prendergast said. Church officials contacted the Sheriff’s Office immediately, and Robison was fired. Investigators analyzing Robison’s laptop found the tens of thousands of photographs, along with more than 3,000 videos, the sheriff said. The videos go back several years, though some were as recent as a few months ago. Robison served at the church from 2011 to his firing in May. Church officials released a statement following Robison’s arrest, according to WFTS in Tampa. “On Thursday, May 11, we received allegations about material found on the personal computer of our music director, Chad Robison,” the statement read. “Prior to May 11, we had no knowledge or suspicion of improper conduct by Mr. Robison. We investigated these allegations and dismissed Mr. Robison from employment at Seven Rivers Presbyterian Church on Monday, May 15, and banned him from our campus. Simultaneously, we informed the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office of what we had discovered. It should be noted that Mr. Robison was an employee of our church and not of our school. Seven Rivers Presbyterian Church remains committed to full cooperation with the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office in this matter.”

This is not the first time a snake has caused an outage.

In July 2014, a snake got into a transformer and caused a brief power outage at the St Johns Town Center.

Then in September 2015, a snake crawled into a transformer in Clay Electric’s Double Branch substation and caused an outage that left 5,000 customers in the dark for an hour.

Two weeks later, another snake caused a power outage that affected thousands of customers in the northern part of Clay County.

Action News Jax asked JEA if anything is being done to prevent this from happening again.

Officials said animal guards and fiberglass brackets are being installed on distribution lines to help prevent contact between animals and energized equipment.

They also say the company is also working to prevent bird nests in substations because eggs attract hungry snakes.

JEA said on average, animals cause one outage once every two or three years inside a substation.
