If you are Sick, You Can’t afford it. Florida Medical Marijuana


Attorney General Jeff Sessions rolled back an Obama-era policy that allowed legal marijuana to thrive without federal intervention.

The move effectively unleashes federal prosecutors to consider bringing marijuana cases, while stopping short of ordering them to do so.

The Obama administration back in 2013 announced via a memo from then-Deputy Attorney General James Cole that it would not obstruct states that legalized marijuana, on the condition the drug was regulated so as not to hinder key federal enforcement priorities. This included preventing the drug from being distributed to minors, preventing its movement to other states, and preventing it from being used as a cover for the trafficking of other drugs.

The Department of Justice announced that it had rescinded that memo, as well as related guidance from 2009.

After looking into the cost of medical marijuana for people who qualify and would benefit from it, the thought that runs through our head is: “If you’re sick, you can’t afford it.” Here’s what we found out about the whole 9-yards.

Buying medical marijuana is strictly a cash business. No insurance company will cover the cost and they don’t have to because cannabis is still prohibited at a Federal level. The cost is very high (no pun intended) to obtain a medical marijuana card, or MMJ card.

Here’s how it basically works:

You obtain an appointment to see a doctor who can make a recommendation for you to get a MMJ card. The Average Cost to visit a Certified Prescribing Doctor is $175-$299 for the initial visit and $100-$250 for the follow up visit. Under Florida law patients must be seen at minimum of once every 210 days, or at least once every 30 weeks. But a doctor can shorten the life of you’re card. Which means you see them more times a year.

If the doctor agrees that you qualify for a MMJ card, then you apply at the Compassionate Use Registry. All applications must be submitted to the Office of Compassionate Use and must include a full-face, passport-type color photograph taken within 90 day, and a registration fee of $75. Compassionate Use Registry identification cards remain active for one year.

Are You Losing Your Obamacare Insurance

Here’s an article written by Breitbart that shows what most likely will happen to Obamacare in 2018. Now you know the reason why the President is pushing to repeal it and the Senate said “no.”

It has been reported that 1,332 counties in America will only have one health insurer on the Obamacare exchanges, according to a new study from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The CMS also reported that 40 counties do not have any health insurers on the Obamacare exchanges. 

The CMS reported, “The map currently shows that nationwide 40 counties are projected to have no issurers, meaning that Americans in these counties could be without coverage on the Exchanges in 2018. It’s also projected that 1,332 counties—over 40 percent of counties nationwide—could only have one issuer in 2018.”

“This could represent more than 2.3 million Exchange participants that will only have one choice and may not be able to receive the coverage they need,” the agency added.

At least 27,660 Americans live in counties that the CMS projected will not have any health coverage on the Obamacare marketplaces next year.

The CMS estimated that average Obamacare marketplace insurance premiums increased by 21.6 percent between 2016 and 2017. The agency also suggested that the health insurer participation dropped by more than a third since its peak in 2015, two years after the Obamacare exchanges opened.

After Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) voted to keep Obamacare last week, President Donald Trump suggested that he should let Obamacare implode to force Democrats and Republicans to compromise on repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Defunding Planned Parenthood for Dummies

We simplified the argument on why people want Planned Parenthood defunded. We covered the most common questions of the argument.

If you want to learn more about the issue, read the thousands of different reports on the web alone.

Who supports Planned Parenthood:

  • Democratic party
  • Socialist-Liberal politicians
  • People who are considered leaning to the left

Who is against Planned Parenthood:

  • Christian religion
  • Republican party
  • Conservative politicians
  • People who are considered leaning to the right

Does Planned Parenthood perform abortions?

Yes they do. Their own website omits to this. Planned Parenthood Website

But other places perform abortion too. What about them?

This is very true. Most other places don’t receive government funding to operate or perform abortions.

Planned Parenthood performs medical services for women at a low cost if not free.

Very true. So does every county health department across the country. To say Planned Parenthood is the only place to get free medical services for women is a false statement.

How much money does Planned Parenthood get from the Federal Government?

To find the exact number has been hard for us to find mainly because the funding they receive comes in different forms and federal avenues. Meaning they get funding for public health programs like Medicaid and Title X for their preventive and primary care.

Planned Parenthood claims it receives $310 million over tens years time period. Web Link

Other reports claim they receive yearly revenues of nearly $1.3 billion in its latest annual report for 2014-15. Web Link.

Planned Parenthood does receive funding from many different private corporations.

Why does the Republican Party and the Democratic Party fight over them so much?

Mainly for two different reasons, the first is because of their own base supporters urgings. Meaning the people who vote for them want their candidates to champion their beliefs.

The other is mainly because Planned Parenthood has many political Super Pac. (501c) Meaning they give money to political parties for candidates that support them. Planned Parenthood supports only liberal-Democratic politicians.

Open Secrets report on Planned Parenthood Super Pac

In the open Secrets report planned parenthood gave a Grand Total Spent on 2016 Federal Elections: $14,359,024. Not counting the funds they gave in local elections.

Why do these companies give money to a Super Pac?

Mainly for political favors. Give money to a super pac, meet the candidate or politician and ask for favors to help your company. Many liberal politicians get the majority of their funding for their campaign from super pacs like Planned Parenthood.

Paris Climate Agreement For Dummies

The President pulled out of the agreement and here’s why: We gave money to other countries because they needed it to spent it on what they wanted. The agreement had nothing to do with a better world, it was to help European countries that couldn’t control their own spending.

“The United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord,” Trump said in the Rose Garden Thursday, announcing his pulling out of the Paris agreement, which the Obama administration joined in 2016.

“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” Trump said.

Trump made good on his campaign promise to withdraw from the Paris agreement after months of internal struggle within the White House. Trump said Paris puts the U.S. at an economic disadvantage and is being pushed by economic competitors.

So what does this mean? For the U.S. We saved a boat load of money that we gave away to European countries so they would like us.

European countries: now will have to figure out how to make up the money they lost that the U.S. gave them, each year.

That’s about all that will happen. Anything else the media is saying, is pure B.S.
