The state of California now allows for adults over the age of 21 to possess up to 1 oz of marijuana for personal consumption. Each household (not person) may contain up to 6 plants. However, the rules of growing are likely to differ between cities. As a general rule, plants are to be grown indoors, and they should not be visible to others outside your household. Smoking in public is prohibited under the ballot measure of Prop 64 unless allowed by a local ordinance – in other words, don’t smoke it just anywhere, fines may occur.
With the shift in federal policy, some investors are skirting the cannabis industry by either choosing to wait out the storm or by leaving it altogether for fear of increased marijuana prosecutions. However, members of Congress – both Democrats and Republicans – are pushing back with the claim that the turnover not only violates states’ rights but it is also destructive and backward.

The guys didn’t want to go work for “the man.” Patti, who is a pretty intimidating and awesome lady, told them to “build a computer program” for what she was doing in a circulated Word document and they did. They won a couple of business plan competitions and decide to take it out to the world. It took a lot of years and a lot of bootstrapping, but off we went.

Baumgartner’s relationship with cannabis started in her teens, around the same time she was diagnosed with anxiety. Refusing to take pills to deal with her nerves, she took on a move natural approach that included surfing and smoking weed. “My Italian-Catholic mother was horrified,” Baumgartner joked, but clearly her system worked. Now, at age 49, she’s staying ahead of her anxiety in a similar way, with smoking, surfing, meditation and eating right, she’s able to live a successful and productive life.
Besides EDIE, Collective now has other software it licenses to payers and accountable care organizations, but it does not charge post-acute operators, ambulatory providers and others who don't have risk. “Our model is that we license our software to those who could see economic benefit through improving coordination of their members, which makes sense,” he says. “Others may not benefit economically, so we don’t charge them.”
As each city is in different stages of deciding how they’ll handle commercial marijuana, recreational dispensaries may not yet be either approved or available to consumers. Although adult use is now legal, finding a recreational dispensary will be difficult for Central Valley residents as many cities have moved to ban recreational operations, Fresno, Clovis, and Visalia among them.
Meanwhile, Dr. Whitfill said, “At the same time, people are realizing that coming up with the algorithm is one piece, but that there are surprising complications. So you develop an algorithm on Siemens equipment, but when you to Fuji, the algorithm fails—it no longer reliably identifies pathology, because it turns out you have to train the algorithm not just on examples form just one manufacturer, but form lots of manufacturers. We continue to find that these algorithms are not as consistent as identifying yourself on Facebook, for example. It’s turning out that radiology is way more complex. We take images on lots of different machines. So huge strides are being made,” he said. “But it’s very clear that human and machine learning together will create the breakthroughs. We talk about physician burnout, and even physicians leaving. I think that machine learning offers a good chance of removing a lot of the drudgery in healthcare. If we can automate some processes, then it will free up our time for quality judgment, and also to spend time talking to patients, not just staring at the screen.”
The premise of our business is that bad people don’t go into healthcare. That’s true even with the big, bad health plans that sometimes get painted into a corner. I’m not suggesting that there aren’t disagreements or even mistrust in healthcare and I’m sure there can be tense moments during contract negotiations between a health plan and a health system. But our job is to find the opportunities where there’s an alignment of incentives. When good people are reminded of why they joined up in healthcare and what their true purpose is, those instincts of competition or mistrust that might lead them to not want to share data fall away. When you give them a cause or a reason to collaborate, people will rally.

The fast-growing pot industry not only raked in $2.7 billion in sales this last year, it’s also produced quite a few ganja-based startups. It’s legal to light up a bowl for recreation or medical reasons in 23 of these 50 United States now and soon as there’s a growing industry, there are technological innovations to support it. We’ve counted at least 8 on-demand delivery apps out there that will bring medicinal grade weed varietals right to your door.
The idea started with Miss Bliss, a very successful edible line in the Bay Area. She just had a baby and was going through some depression. Her edible line was doing really well, but she felt a disconnect from the cannabis community and what she was going through as a mother. A lot of women hold stigma and shame around cannabis use, so she wanted to build a community around that. Miss Bliss connected with an administrator at Oaksterdam. They reached out and asked me to not only attend a Ganja Goddess retreat, but also speak on a panel. I arrived to the most beautiful property. It’s like summer camp — a girls’ summer camp with weed! Women from all over the world have started to see this. We’re calling this medicine but we’re still afraid to pull out a vape pen in front of our kids instead of a cocktail. Let’s change that.
En ce qui concerne l’industrie pharmaceutique, les entreprises de fabrication de médicaments et de produits pharmaceutiques sont concernées par la convention collective nationale de l’industrie pharmaceutique, alors que les sociétés spécialisées dans la fabrication et le commerce de produits parapharmaceutiques et vétérinaires sont soumises à la convention collective nationale de la fabrication et du commerce des produits à usage pharmaceutique, parapharmaceutique et vétérinaire.

Collective Medical is a Salt Lake City-based developer of collaboration software. I started working on the company with two of my best friends from Boise, Idaho. We grew up together and we all went to Brigham Young University together. Two of us studied computer science and I was the token business guy. I went off to Bain & Company and then Bain Capital for roughly a decade.
“In 2013, President Barack Obama’s attorney general advised prosecutors not to waste money targeting pot growers and sellers that were abiding by state laws but to go after flagrant violations such as trafficking across state lines or selling to minors. Under this policy, several states legalized recreational pot, growers and sellers had begun to drop their guard over fears of a federal crackdown and the business blossomed into a sophisticated, multimillion-dollar industry feeding state government programs with tax dollars.”

Les hôpitaux publics ne sont pas soumis à une convention collective, au contraire des établissements privés. En effet, la convention collective des établissements privés d’hospitalisation, de soins, de cure et de garde à but non lucratif doit être appliquée dans les établissements privés d’hospitalisation, de consultations et soins, de radiothérapie, de collecte de sang, etc. Les établissements privés de diagnostic, de services hospitaliers, d’hébergement médicalisé et social pour personnes âgées, sont concernés quant à eux par la convention collective de l’hospitalisation privée.
Unfortunately, that's not the only message this raid sent. Thanks to decades of demonization, much of it fueled by alcohol and tobacco interests, marijuana still carries a stigma. Police actions like this only reinforce that stigma. That people who get their medicine from dispensaries instead of pharmacists are druggies, and the employees of such establishments can still get their mugs displayed like drug dealers.
