NMDOH Proposes Medical Cannabis Rule Changes

first_imgNMDOH News:The New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) recently announced details of proposed rule changes for its Medical Cannabis Program (MCP) that, if adopted, will implement several important policy changes, including a new maximum limit of 1,750 plants for licensed non-profit producers (LNPPs) of medical cannabis.The new plant limit replaces NMAC Rule Change – 2019 – MCP – Emergency Amendment enacted in March that adopted an emergency plant count rule of 2,500 plants for LNPPs while the NMDOH worked to obtain data for a permanent rule.  The proposed provisions would strengthen oversight of licensed cannabis operators and their inventory, as well as assure proper disposal of product where necessary.  A formal hearing will be at 9 a.m. July 12. in the auditorium of the Harold Runnels Building, located at 1190 St. Francis Drive in Santa Fe.The Department of Health carefully developed the new plant limit to balance concerns about available medical cannabis supply while limiting the risk of the over-production that has disrupted regulated systems in other states. NMDOH commissioned surveys and used data from cannabis producers and national industry averages were also analyzed to determine an appropriate plant limit.The proposed rule change also allows plant limits to grow with the size of the market through a provision beginning in June of 2021. It will allow licensed producers to request an increase of up to 500 permitted plants if they are nearing their capacity to supply their patients’ demand.LNPPs will be able exclude cannabis seedlings from their plant limit. This change in policy will allow licensed producers to experiment with cultivating a wider variety of plant strains and is designed to increase the available supply of plants high in alternative cannabinoids like CBD, which is used for serious conditions like epilepsy.In addition, the MCP is preparing for another round of rulemaking  to comply with statutory mandates enacted by the Legislature earlier this year in Senate Bill 406.last_img read more

Marseille address security concerns of Ayew brothers

first_imgFrench giants Olympique Marseille have responded to security concerns raised by Ghana star Andre Ayew by promising first class security to all players of the club.Andre, 21, together with his brother, Jordan Ayew suffered two robbery attacks in six months.Ayew, who was voted Marseille of player of the year last season admitted he was pondering a move away from the Stade Velodrome after the latest robbery incident which occurred in last May.But Marseille officials have announced that they have arranged for tight security for their playing squad this season after another Marseille player Vitorino Hilton suffered a robbery attack.A club statement read: “OM has decided to “take bull by the horns ” and has already taken several steps. Alongside the director of security and organization, Guy Cazadamont, sporting director Jose Anigo. As of Wednesday evening, security guards will be outside the homes of players.Vehicles of a security company in contact with the police will turn all night outside the homes of all players and staff according to residential areas defined in advance and more sensitive sectors will be developed later with the continued presence of vigilantes. “It’s absurd to get there” regretted Jose Anigo who also said that the club had advised the players living in isolated houses to move to apartments, and that the principle of housing stock was in the study even if it is “difficult to accommodate everyone in one place.”Andre linked with moves to Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Manchester United has returned to pre-season with the team in France.Source: Ghanasoccernet.comlast_img read more

10-year-old says do chores to help world

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’“We know there’s an imagination in there trying to get out,” Kevin told me that night 11 years ago. “We’re hoping that when Matt sees the person signing at story time, he’ll understand and let that imagination run free.” Matt’s 16 now. And that year he spent at weekly sign-language story times did help his parents find that key, the Moores say today. “It definitely helped Matt start to connect the dots and get that imagination out,” Kevin said. Kevin and Pat were talking about that long-ago experience after dinner a few months ago while 10-year-old Madison played nearby with her brother. Madison listened to every word as her parents went on to talk about the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation, which works to find the myriad causes of severe birth defects, and which is holding its biennial conference in Los Angeles next year. There were just the three of them in 1995 – Kevin and Pat Moore, with 5-year-old Matt – sitting in the children’s section of Northridge Library and waiting for story time to begin. Madison hadn’t been born yet, but Pat could feel the baby inside kicking – again. Their daughter was going to be a real fighter, she joked to Kevin. It was the first night the Los Angeles Public Library system was offering a story time in sign language so kids like Matt, who was born deaf and was learning to sign, could be included. The night was important for the Moores. They were looking for a key to help unlock some of the mysteries inside their young son’s mind. Dozens of renowned doctors and experts will be there sharing their research and findings. It was too bad, the Moores said, that so many parents from around the country would be unable to attend because they couldn’t afford the trip. Even with the best medical insurance, the Moores knew, families with children suffering from severe birth defects often live hand to mouth. “I want to help,” Madison interrupted. “I’ll open a lemonade stand or have a carwash for them.” Her parents smiled. That’s nice, honey, they told her. You keep at it. The $10 or $20 she could make at that lemonade stand would help. But the little girl with the big imagination did the math and figured it out for herself: 20 bucks doesn’t go very far. A few days later, she walked into the kitchen and hit her parents with a brainstorm. “When I’m home, you let me earn extra money doing chores,” Madison said. “What if hundreds or even thousands of kids did chores for their parents and neighbors for charity?” The little ones could help set the table, clear the dishes and get the mail. The older ones could take care of pets, wash the car, vacuum or mow the neighbor’s lawn. You get enough kids doing enough chores, and who knows how many families you could fly to L.A. or help in some other charity? “Kevin and I just looked at each other, smiled and nodded,” Pat said. “She was right. It could work.” So, that’s what Madison and her mom were doing last Saturday at the Granada Hills street fair – standing in front of the Rotary Club of Granada Hills booth, handing out fliers and talking to parents and kids about a great idea. It made a lot of sense to dozens of parents who stopped to talk. It also made sense to Cleveland and Miller High in Reseda, where Matt is a student, to sign on to Chores-4-Charity as a service learning project. It made sense to several local churches and charities, and to dozens of people who have already checked out Madison’s Web site – www.chores-4-charity.com. And, finally, it made sense to the Los Angeles Public Library system, which has invited the Moores to distribute and post their fliers at all branches citywide. It turns out that Pat Moore was right 11 years ago while she sat with her husband and son in the children’s section of Northridge Library and waited for story time to begin in sign language. Her daughter was going to be a real fighter.

What It Will Take For Alabama’s Nick Saban To Get A Twitter Account

(Photo by Scott Cunningham/Getty Images)Nick Saban does not have a personal Twitter account. If I had to bet on it, I’d guess the Alabama head coach will never have one. The five-time national champion said today he’d consider getting one, though. During an appearance on The Paul Finebaum Show, Saban said he’d get a personal Twitter account if “someone can prove to me there’s an advantage.” Nick Saban on @twitter“If someone can prove to me there’s an advantage in it I’ll certainly do it” pic.twitter.com/t0vAjoDRLF— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) May 6, 2016Most college football coaches do have Twitter accounts.Jim Harbaugh’s is probably the most-popular and he has 417K followers.

OSU field hockey team focused on Final Four matchup with No 1

The No. 7-ranked Ohio State field hockey team (18-4) will be making its first NCAA Tournament semifinals appearance in program history. On Friday, the Buckeyes face No. 1-ranked University of Maryland (21-1), six-time NCAA Tournament champions. “Maryland’s a big opponent, traditionally a highly ranked team, winners almost every year of the national championship,” senior forward Jena Cacciatore said. The Buckeyes are the underdog heading into Friday’s game but are using it to their advantage. “I think it’s an advantage for us. Maryland might not see us as something that they have to worry about, but I think that we are going to give them a game for sure,” Cacciatore said. This isn’t OSU’s first daunting task during its tournament run. OSU beat Albany 2-1 in overtime in the first round. Freshman forward Paula Pastor-Pitarque scored a goal with just 1:30 remaining in regulation. Ten minutes into the overtime period, Pastor-Pitarque scored again for the OSU victory. The second-round game against Syracuse ended in similar fashion for the Buckeyes. OSU trailed Syracuse 2-1 in the second half when junior midfielder Aisling Coyle tied the game for the Buckeyes, scoring off an assist from Pastor-Pitarque with 12:26 left in regulation. The game went into overtime, when Coyle scored the game-winning goal off a penalty shot. “Going into overtime both games to get to the Final Four, from behind, shows a lot about (the players’) character and commitment, and I couldn’t be more proud of this team,” OSU coach Anne Wilkinson said. Even though it will be OSU’s first visit to the Final Four, Coyle said the experience the team has gained from the first two tournament games gives it confidence against Maryland. “We are relaxed about it. The girls that were playing the past weekend in the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight had never even got to that stage before, so we have a lot of confidence and have fun when we play,” Coyle said. “We know that we can do this. We aren’t too worried about Maryland. They should be more worried about us even though we are the underdog.” OSU plays Maryland at 4:30 p.m. Friday in College Park, Md. read more

Gordon plans to remain calm despite losing starting berth

first_imgScotland international goalkeeper Craig Gordon has revealed he won’t throw any tantrums should he fail to regain his place as the country’s first choice goalkeeping optionThe Celtic shot-stopper was in goal for Scotland’s opening game in the UEFA Nations League, which they lost scandalously to Belgium, but he soon found himself on the bench after head coach Alex McLeish opted for Allan McGregor in goal for the second group game.The Rangers Football Club goalkeeper who replaced Gordon kept a clean sheet as Scotland defeated Albania 2-0. However, despite being dropped, Gordon insists he will not be tempted to consider his international future.“I’d love to go to a tournament and I like to think we have a good chance of getting to the Euros,” said the 35-year-old, according to Evening Times.“So I definitely not going to say I don’t want to be involved – I want to be the first choice but I’d be happy to go along as back-up if need be.”Rangers is still behind Celtic: John Hartson Manuel R. Medina – September 3, 2019 According to the former Celtic player, there’s still a massive gap between his ex-club and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.“I won’t be chucking the toys out of the pram because I want to do the best I can for my country. If the decision is taken out of my hands then fair enough but at some point we are going to have to bring young goalies through. It’s a balancing act between being selfish and giving others an opportunity a couple of years down the line.”“I want to play as many times for Scotland as I can. But if there comes a time when it’s more beneficial for the country to bring in some younger ‘keepers to give them a taste of it then it may become the case [that I quit].”“If they came to me or Allan at some point in the future and say that’s what they want to do then that will be the time for us to step aside but right now I want to win as many caps as possible. So I’ll continue to play until I’m no longer asked to.”Gordon insists he will now turn his attentions to Celtic, as they look to defend their Scottish Premiership crown whilst also making a good appearance in this season’s UEFA Europa League.last_img read more
