mibrains Posted September 12, 2011 Report Share Posted September 12, 2011 so it is my contention that there are three roles associated with the medical use of cannabis as it relates to our law. 1) Patient- a sick person who has seen a doctor and has a certificate and all supporting paperwork to be in legal compliance. this person may or may not have possession of their plants, but they hired a caregiver to take care of them. 2) Caregiver- a person who cares for the plants, well-being, and safety of a patient. this person may or may not have possession of the plants but has been hired to tend to them. this person solely as a caregiver may not use cannabis for their own personal use. 3) Patient-Caregiver- a person who takes care of their own plants, provides for their own service and has all their own responsibility to attain the genetics and cannabis they need to meet their own consumption for relief. it is my contention that #3 is the most protected class, whether you are a caregiver for yourself, or for another patient you are protected the most by the act if you are both a patient, and a caregiver. Patients are authorized to use cannabis Caregivers are allowed to tend the cannabis. if you are going to grow 12 plants, and be authorized to carry 2.5 oz, for a patient then you MUST be registered to each other through the state. if you are a caregiver you are authorized to help any caregiver or patient who has a card because they also belong to the registry. we are not only authorized to protect any patient, we are morally bound to help any sick people aren't we? if i see someone suffering and i can help them... i will.... every time... patients aren't allowed to provide cannabis to other patients they are supposed to be using that medicine not providing it, caregivers are supposed to be the ones dealing with the supply of medicine. by extension then a patient/caregiver combined has the protections of both categories and is the most protected under the definitions of the act.
