Questions and Answers about Acupuncture

In April 2003,Guest Posting I was interviewed by Anupam Sharma, a journalist with the magazine from India, Fourth Dimension, which reaches 171,000 readers monthly both there and abroad. I thought you’d like to read it, because I answered a lot of the commonly asked questions about acupuncture that I haven’t written about on the Pulse of Oriental Medicine (PulseMed.org), and because you probably won’t be able to get that magazine.

Anupam Sharma (AS): Dr. Brian Carter, Thank you for the prompt reply and agreeing to do this interview. Tell me, doctor, how does Acupuncture work? Please explain the science behind this traditional method of healing

Brian B. Carter (BBC): Acupuncture is based on Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine (CM) has its own system of diagnosis and treatment, and acupuncture is only one therapy within that medicine. Those who have developed CM since before 2500 B.C. (when our first literary work, the Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine, was written) used both symptoms and signs to diagnose disease before treating it. They developed a unique form of diagnosis called ‘pattern differentiation.’ Patterns are sets of specific symptoms and signs. For us, finding the signs includes the feeling the pulse and looking at the tongue.

For acupuncture specifically, there is also diagnosis according to the channels. It’s actually a very complicated system of theories… not as simple as it first seems. That complexity allows for a sophisticated flexibility in diagnosis and treatment that can adapt to most clinical situations. According to modern science, acupuncture works via the immune and nervous systems. It has local peripheral nervous system and central nervous system effects. Professor and physicist Zang-hee Cho has begun to use PET scans to map the brain loci affected by specific acupuncture points. Acupuncture affects neurons, electrolytes, neuro-transmitters, and neuropeptides. But even once all that data is in, the traditional system of channels and pattern differentiation will still be the clearest map of how acupuncture works. The biomedical view of physical phenomena is not always well-integrated.

Marijuana Laws in Utah Regarding Medicinal Use

April 1st, 2022 by admin No comments »

Marijuana laws throughout the country are being reformed, and some states have even voted to allow the use of cannabis for medical reasons. In Utah, marijuana laws have become even more complex as the state continues to outlaw the drug, but makes certain exceptions for its partial use.

Currently in Utah, parents of children who suffer from severe epilepsy are allowed to legally obtain a marijuana extract that is said the help ease the seizures associated with epilepsy. However, because the production of marijuana and its extract are not legal in Utah, parents have to travel to neighboring states.

Colorado, Nevada and Arizona all have some sort of medical marijuana law in place that allows patients to obtain the substance for various reasons. Under Utah law, the few residents who are able to legally purchase marijuana extract could do so within one of these states. Transporting the cannabis-based medicines back to Utah, however, is an issue.

Marijuana, no matter its use or consistency, still is considered a Schedule I substance under federal law. This means when a parent or caregiver is transporting the substance back into Utah, he or she could be charged with a federal drug trafficking offense. This could carry harsh penalties, including lengthy prison sentences.

Utah Sen. Mark B. Madsen introduced Senate Bill 259 at the beginning of the 2015 legislative session. The bill, which eventually failed by one vote, would have implemented a new medical marijuana plan in the state, allowing patients suffering from AIDS, PTSD, cancer, glaucoma and other disorders to have legal access to medical marijuana.

Even if the bill would have been approved, patients would not have been allowed to smoke or vaporize whole plant cannabis. However, they would have been able to legally access edible medical marijuana products, tinctures and oils for the first time. Now, marijuana remains an entirely illegal substance in Utah.

Marijuana still is considered a controlled substance in Utah, and it is classified under Schedule I. This is on the same level as codeine, morphine, LSD and peyote. Because of this classification, there are various criminal offenses associated with marijuana under state statute 58-37-8.

If a person is in possession of marijuana, no matter if it is considered medicinal in another state, Utah law considers it a crime. The penalties associated with the offense would be determined by the amount of the substance in possession. Generally, possession of less than one pound would be considered a misdemeanor and more than that would be a felony.
