Look At The Comments Under Dawn's Post

My friend Dawn Darington posted a link to a news article on


her Facebook page recently. The news article described the way in which businesses were penalized for spraying pesticides on the recreational marijuana they were trying to sell.

She tagged several people, trying to get their attention and feedback. The people she tagged are all important when it comes to discussing marijuana in Washington state.
I encourage everyone who cares about marijuana in Washington state to go over to this post on Dawn's Facebook page and read the comments section

Thank you.

John Novak Watches WA Lawmakers Fuck Up Medical Marijuana

John Novak shared info from emails regarding what officials in Washington state plan to do about Marijuana Specialty Clinics for folks looking 


to get a medical marijuana authorization.

Considering representatives, with help from the Liquor Control Board, recently dropped the amount of plants patients are allowed to grow for themselves from 15 to 4, I'm sure many who used to get medical marijuana authorizations are wondering if it is even worth it anymore. Add in that medical marijuana farmers markets are no longer allowed, safe access points (dispensaries) are being forced to shut down, and patients are being encouraged to get the cannabis they need from Recreational Marijuana stores and you understand that government forces are being used to enrich businessmen who bribe politicians.

Here is what John shared:

Subject: Marijuana Specialty Clinic Report Submitted to Governor and Legislature

During the 2015 legislative session, Second Substitute Senate Bill 5052 (SB 5052) was passed by the legislature. It was signed by Governor Inslee on April 24, 2015. Section 41 of the Cannabis Patient Protection Act (2SSB 5052) requires the Department of Health to “develop recommendations on establishing medical marijuana specialty clinics that would allow for the authorization and dispensing of marijuana to patients of health care professionals who work on-site of the clinic and who are certified by the department in the medical use of marijuana.”

Recommendation:

The department does not support establishing medical marijuana specialty clinics in Washington at this time.

Rationale:

• Healthcare practitioners cannot legally prescribe or dispense schedule I controlled substances and would potentially risk criminal prosecution, as well as civil and financial liability.

• Injured patients may be left without an adequate remedy if malpractice does occur.

• Further research using accepted scientific protocols is needed.

• Significant changes to existing licensing laws for commercial marijuana would be needed. Without such changes, practitioners at specialty clinics would not be able to access the marijuana they would later dispense to patients, which could present issues with supply.

Instead, the department recommends that individual practitioners become, to the extent possible given limited scientific research, educated and knowledgeable about the risks and benefits of the medical use of marijuana so they can provide their patients with accurate information and safe, competent care.

Public Health – Always Working for a Safer and Healthier Washington




Please send John Novak a thank you note for always watching representatives and other officials who make changes to medical marijuana in Washington state without consideration for what voters actually want. 
John Novak fights for medical marijuana patients in Washington state

Please contact representatives and tell them that we want more rights, we want to be allowed to grow more plants, and we want more doctors to be able to talk to their patients about marijuana.

Thank you

Graciela In Mexico, Cannabis And Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome

Grace is a little girl in Mexico living with Lennox Gestaut syndrome, a type of epilepsy that
comes with different types of seizures, including tonic (stiffening) and atonic (drop) seizures.

I spoke with Amy Case King, a marijuana activist who attended an event with Por Grace Por Todo in Mexico recently.

She had this to say:

Hi Jared. your shirt was a big hit yesterday at the event PorGrace PorTodos in Mexico City.

Por Grace is a foundation started by Graciela's parents to bring attention to the possibilities of cannabis to provide a better quality of life to children who have found no relief from traditional medications used for epilepsy

Amy Case King continued:

their next step besides holding the public education events is to help other families obtain the necessary permits from the regulating authority known as COFEPRIS for the importation of CBD hemp products

I can't thank Amy enough for wearing her safer shirt to the event, I hope to get some safer shirts to other folks who volunteer with Por Grace Por Todos in the near future!

Thank you Amy, and all the people fighting for Grace, and others who benefit from Cannabis Therapy!
