NZ Medical Association not supporting medicinal cannabis

first_imgNewsTalk ZB 11 April 2018A group that supports doctors says it cannot support a bill to allow the use of medicinal cannabis because it isn’t a medicine.The New Zealand Medical Association has given it’s submission to a select committee this morning, putting forward its case against the legalisation of the illegal drug.Chair of the Association Kate Baddock, says there’s concern the Government put in a compassionate clause for the use of medicinal cannabis.“People who are within the end of life within 12 months would be able to use cannabis but would not be able to buy it because it is illegal to sell it, but it would be okay if they had it and it would not be criminally convicted.”She says understanding this can be very difficult to ascertainLISTEN TO KATE BADDOCK TALK WITH GREG BOYED   http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/on-air/larry-williams-drive/audio/kate-baddock-medicinal-cannabis-bill-hard-to-understand/Keep up with family issues in NZ.

Angels’ Tyler Skaggs adds more good memories of pitching in Kansas City

first_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros INJURY UPDATESMike Trout was at DH for the sixth straight game because of a sprained right index finger that affects his throwing. Trout said he’s going to try to throw on Tuesday in Boston, but Scioscia said it might take longer for him to be ready to play outfield in a game.“He’s not going to play center field tomorrow,” Scioscia said. “We’ll see how it progresses when he starts to throw.”Garrett Richards (hamstring) was scheduled to throw off a mound for the first time since going on the disabled list on Monday. Scioscia said it’s just a light bullpen session, so he will need at least one more before he can be ready to make a rehab assignment.Zack Cozart (shoulder) has begun baseball activities, but the Angels “don’t have any idea yet when he’s going to be able to take the next step,” Scioscia said.ALSOBecause Monday’s game was originally scheduled for April 15, which is Jackie Robinson Day, the players for both teams all wore No. 42, as they would have in April. …David Fletcher has now played outfield three times in the majors, even though he hadn’t played it at all in the minors. Trout’s temporary inability to play center has created some difficult roster situations for the Angels, resulting in Fletcher playing right field. “He’s athletic, he’s got good foot speed,” Scioscia said. “We figured he could handle it for an inning or two in a dire situation.”UP NEXTAngels (John Lamb, 0-0, 5.40) at Red Sox (David Price, 8-5, 3.81), Tuesday, 4 p.m., Fox Sports West, KLAA (830 AM)Related Articles KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It took nearly two years for Tyler Skaggs to make it back to the majors after undergoing Tommy John surgery. When he finally did, his return was at Kauffman Stadium.Skaggs pitched seven scoreless innings that night in July 2016, and since then he’s continued adding to his positive highlight reel from this ballpark.“This place has good memories for me, coming back from Tommy John,” Skaggs said after another solid game on Monday. “I love pitching here.”Skaggs had a scoreless seven-inning outing in Kansas City in 2017. On Monday he gave up one run in seven innings. Add it up, and he’s allowed one run in 21 innings in three starts at Kaufmann Stadium. Mike Trout, with bat and glove, helps Angels end losing streak Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Clippers, Mavericks brace for the unknown in Game 4 This one didn’t have the drama of a comeback from a two-year battle with elbow and shoulder problems, but there were some questions after he’d had his previous scheduled turn pushed back because of hamstring tightness.Skaggs said he now feels “100 percent,” adding that he is “happy I took the extra few days.”With 10 days off since his previous start, he said he was a little ragged at the beginning of the game, but he settled into a groove and got through 110 pitches.The Royals had seven hits against Skaggs, including four to lead off innings, so he was pitching under pressure most of the afternoon. He escaped with the help of a double play and three baserunners being erased. Skaggs picked one off, and catcher Martín Maldonado picked off two and caught one stealing.“I thought Tyler was on his game,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “He pitched a great game. He used all his pitches.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
