Rigorous standards urged for medicinal cannabis

September 27, 2020 | mfhfzdun | No Comments

first_imgOtago Daily Times 3 May 2019Family First Comment: “Patients were vulnerable and often immune compromised, so active ingredients in any medicine prescribed to them needed to be controlled and carefully labelled….. The quality control rigours for classification as a medicine . . . are safeguards that should not be compromised or redefined without a careful consideration of the consequences, many of which could be unintended.”Exactly what we’ve been saying. www.saynopetodope.org.nz/medicinalWhen the government finalises its medicinal cannabis scheme it needs to clearly define what “medicinal” cannabis is, University of Otago academics say.The Misuse of Drugs (Medicinal Cannabis) Amendment Bill, passed by Parliament in December, introduced an exception and a statutory defence for terminally ill people to possess and use illicit cannabis.It also gave the Government a year to draft regulations for a medicinal cannabis scheme.In the latest edition of the New Zealand Medical Journal, Otago academics Prof Michelle Glass and Associate Prof John Ashton, of  the departments of pharmacology and toxicology, have argued for cannabis-based medicines to be subject to the same rigorous standards as other medicines.“Cannabis is not a single entity but a diverse range of related substances and products all referred to as ‘cannabis’ in popular usage,” they said.“Which of these may be considered a medicine depends on precisely how the product is constituted.”Medicines worked by delivering precisely measured combinations of chemicals to produce a therapeutic effect, the authors said.Cannabis, on the other hand, could be one of several plant species and the amount of its active ingredients cannabidiol (CB) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) could vary widely.“Uniformity is a central feature of medicines, but concentrations of CB and THC in cannabis plants vary widely.READ MORE: https://www.odt.co.nz/news/dunedin/health/rigorous-standards-urged-medicinal-cannabisKeep up with family issues in NZ.

Syracuse quidditch team growing by the year

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 25, 2017 at 10:59 pm Contact Adam: [email protected] | @_adamhillman Josh Hintz sprinted down the grassy field outside of the Women’s Building. He kept an eye on his surroundings and, despite it being a practice, the head captain of the Syracuse club quidditch team ensured his team functioned as though it were a game.While the sport was only created in 2005, it has grown across the nation. Within seven years, quidditch has expanded to more than 110 teams, according to a 2012 NPR article. Though it isn’t recognized as a Division I sport, quidditch allows students to participate in an activity modeled after the Harry Potter film series.At Syracuse, the club sport was created in 2008 and has since grown in popularity. There are currently between 30 to 40 players in the program, but only 21 travel to tournaments.“(Quidditch) is really intense,” Hintz, a senior, said. “It’s a fast-paced game and is more physically draining than some sports.”Quidditch is a six-on-six match played with a deflated volleyball, called a quaffle. Each main player on the field, either a chaser or keeper, holds a broom between his or her legs while running around the field. Ten points is awarded to whichever team throws the quaffle through the opposing hoops. The game ends after the snitch, a 30-point award, is caught by a specialized player called the seeker. Then all points are tallied and the victor, decided.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDuring the game, players can impede the opposition using bludgers, which are dodgeballs. If a player is hit by the bludger, they must dismount off their broom and touch one of their hoops before rejoining play.Though quidditch has grown in popularity, there are struggles when it comes to recruiting new members. Benjamin Stonish, vice president of the quidditch program, has tried addressing the ongoing concern by spreading the word about the sport.Courtesy of Josh HintzHintz said the club tries to dispel its “nerdy” appearance when recruiting new possible athletes. They point toward the growth nationally and athleticism required to play the sport.Outside of recruiting new members, the team also must address the gender rule, which requires a maximum of four of the same sex on the field at once. Women make up about one-third of the team and, Hintz said, adapt to the differences in size and strength.“What happened in certain games was teams started putting out a female seeker with little practice, mostly to serve as place holder,” Hintz said, “(Then) they put another larger, more athletic male in at either the chaser or beater position to give them a different on-field advantage.”As the sport continues to grow on college campuses across the United States, Stonish’s goal is to dispel the notion that quidditch is just for Harry Potter lovers. It is a physical sport, Stonish said, that requires both athleticism and stamina.“I prepare for it both physically by training, as well as watching film and drawing up plays,” Stonish said. “I try to pull the sport away from the absurd fandom that surrounds it, while still maintaining those absurd elements that makes the sport unique.”As more teams are added, and as the annual Quidditch World Cup becomes more competitive, it flashes a larger signal to those in Syracuse.“The sport is growing,” Hintz said. “It’s exciting.” Commentslast_img read more
