1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    10,398 seek Michigan medical marijuana permits

    LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan medical marijuana regulators say they've been deluged with applications from patients and caregivers and face a five-week backlog in processing them.

    State voters approved medical marijuana use a year ago.

    The state Department of Community Health said Thursday it's received 10,398 applications since starting April 6.

    It's issued 5,873 patient registrations and 2,440 caregiver registrations while denying 1,867, mainly because of missing information.

    An average of 66 applications arrive daily. The department says it reviews applications within 15 days but workers are behind in issuing cards.

    Officials say staffers now are processing applications from late September and hope to speed the process by year's end.
