Elections matter

Members of Congress are lining up to introduce bills that never saw the light of day when Republicans ran the show.

Two bills have already been filed: a re-introduction of the CARERS Act by Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) and Don Young (R-Alaska), which would expand marijuana research, allow VA doctors to discuss it with veteran patients; and prevent the federal government from meddling with state-legal programs without removing marijuana from the schedules created by the Controlled Substances Act of 1970; and H.R. 420, the “Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act” by Blumenauer, which would remove marijuana from the list of most dangerous drugs, “de-scheduling it” in Congress-speak, and shift regulatory authority to the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms.

O’Shaughnessy was also able to stop the infant convulsions (febrile seizures) that a 40-day old infant was suffering from. This led O’Shaughnessy to declare that “the profession has gained an anti-convulsive remedy of the greatest value”.

O’Shaughnessy’s impact on cannabis research is evident by the fact that between 1840 and 1900 over 100 articles appeared in scientific journals describing the medical properties of cannabis. A stark contrast to the period before that. As noted by Dr. Tod Mikuriya in his 1969 article ‘Marijuana in Medicine’ there was a “paucity of references to hemp’s intoxicating properties in the lay and medical literature of Europe before the 1800s”.

O'Shaughnessy was born at Limerick in 1809 to Daniel O'Shaughnessy and Sarah Boswell. Many in the family were clergymen, an uncle was the Dean of Ennis and a great uncle the Roman Catholic Bishop of Killaloe. He validated folk uses of cannabis in India, discovered new applications, and ultimately recommended cannabis for a great variety of therapeutic purposes. O'Shaughnessy established his reputation by successfully relieving the pain of rheumatism and stilling the convulsions of an infant with cannabis. When O’Shaughnessy published The Bengal Pharmacopoeia in 1844 the section on cannabis extended to 25 pages. This work has been described by James Mills in the Cannabis Britannica as “the most comprehensive assessment of the properties of cannabis” undertaken at the time.

In 2016, Ankara issued a regulation on controlled hemp production, granting permits to 19 provinces in Turkey. Still, annual hemp production, which was between 3,000 and 6,000 tonnes in the 1990s, was just seven tonnes in 2017, according to the Turkish Statistical Institute.
“It's a plant that can be grown with no irrigation in the Black Sea region where the rainfall is more than 700 centimeters and with little irrigation in other regions with high relative humidity.”
