 Pot Shots Fired: Recreational vs. Medicinal

Washington State -- As Washington begins to accept applications for the state’s first regulated recreational pot shops, cries of protest about its plans for medical marijuana are coming from unexpected quarters: the left. A year after voters put their state on track to become one of the only places in the world where marijuana can be legally owned and sold for purely recreational use, the state legislature still has to decide what to do with its rickety, fifteen-year-old medical-marijuana system. With the Department of Justice’s hawkish eyes trained on the state—determined to ensure that the drug, which is still illegal under federal law—remains under strict control, some bureaucrats and lawmakers are afraid that Washington’s unregulated medical-marijuana system could doom the whole experiment.

Its conclusion: The state should nix the collective gardens, make it harder to get a medical marijuana card by making patients with intractable pain ineligible, create a mandatory patient registry, and disallow patients from growing marijuana at home.

 

There seems to be a pattern emerging.

Right?

 

Seems like every article I read lately has the same end game..

 

I didn't mind either way before about dispensaries, I've used them before.. possibly will in the future if need be, but it sure seems like they have really taken apart our law one unneeded arrest at a time.

 

People pushing the limits to make a buck.

I am getting the impression that the prohibitionists think that the general public still does not understand the "dangers" of marijuana. They seem to think that the public's desire to legalize pot is misguided due to ignorance. It is looking like their plan is to keep opposing marijuana in hopes that the public will eventually come around to their view. This game could go on for quite some time.

 

Their other tactic is to tax it out of existence like they have been doing with tobacco.

 

Too many people still do not understand cannabis. The author of this article states that one big fear still is the threat of teenagers becoming addicted to pot. Latest statistics show that only 9% of chronic users become dependent - much less than coffee, tobacco, and alcohol. And so what if someone becomes "dependent" on pot? If they are still a functioning member of society, why the helll do you care? They are restricting tobacco use because it has been proven to cause disease. Pot, like coffee, shows no signs that it is detrimental to ones health.

      I posted this in another thread but I feel this is an important victory that has been a battle for 13 years.
      Thank You Komorn Law - for the Court of Appeals win for Medical Marijuana patients on probation to use their medicine.  Now here come the other attorneys to ruin the MRTMA law stating that it's wording is the same.  I got $100 riding that some politician is being influenced right this second to modify the law to benefit no one but the state.  There will probably be attempts to modify the MMMA Act too.  The medical I assume will be phased out soon.
      I know your law firm has been fighting for the right's of patients and caregivers since the fight to get it passed began.  I know several people you have helped secure their freedom and have recommended you guys several times. 
      Keep up the good fight.  There are those that are going to try to manipulate the MMMP and MRTMA laws for their own personal greed and fear of competition.  I know you probably get caught in the middle. Press on but don't forget about the common person who always ends up getting ripped off.

      Medical marijuana patients have had their doctor recommended use of cannabis while on probation in limbo for a long time.
      Lead trial attorney and advocate for marijuana law reform Michael Komorn and his dedicated team of attorneys (specifically Ally McCormick) secured a victory in the Michigan Court of Appeals for Medical Marijuana Patients
      As many battles for marijuana patients, caregivers and business clients represented by the Komorn Law Firm loom in the background – a decision has been made to set the tone for future cases involving those on probation.
       
      HERE ARE THE KEY FACTORS FROM THE RULING AS TO WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE THE PROTECTIONS OF BEING A MEDICAL MARIJUANA PATIENT.
      THE PROSECUTION ARGUED
      “The prosecution argued that the district court had the ability to place restrictions on a defendant’s medication. The district court denied defendant’s motion to modify the terms of his probation, holding that it was bound by the “Circuit Court’s decision on this issue,”

      Hello,
      I have patient openings for 4 people in the U.P. 
      I have flower, wax, edibles, and cartridges. 
      In rotation right now, I have white widow, jock horror, northern lights, lemon OG haze, and chemdawg OG. All from a reputable breeder in the Netherlands. 
      I gurantee quality and clean medicine. I grow in a clean and sterile environment with HIDs. I don't use any chemicals or pesticides and none of my medicine will have mold.

      LARA is holding another public hearing, hoping to break the 3-3 tie that was set on the 5-4-2018 meeting to hear new petitions to add qualifying conditions to the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act. 
      Please show up if you can and help support the new conditions for the patients and parents who could not be there themselves. Just showing up makes a difference!
