The THIRD Medical Marijuana Bill in Washington State
The THIRD Medical Marijuana Bill in Washington State.
First it was SB 5073
Then it was SB 5955
Now we have H-2827 Read this new bill: http://xcannabis.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/1305325969-thirdtimeacharm.pdf
It is obvious the legislature wants to destroy cannabis laws in Washington by corrupting them with regulation that has never been there in the past.
I have had some bitter arguments with people about this because so many people think that we need to follow whatever the legislature does without complain in hopes that they are gracious to us. I think it is weak-minded to NOT offer objection to laws that we KNOW are bad for us.
It is also a topic coming to the table now that many groups including several police associations and several marijuana advocacy groups want to reschedule cannabis as a Schedule II or a Schedule III. Which I have been saying for a very long time is a BAD idea. What ma and pa businesses are currently involved in the pharmaceutical industry? How many pharmacies are still owned by families rather than large corporate conglomerates? How many small guys are in the business of producing pharmaceutical medication? Drugs like oxycontin, lortab, prozac are schedule II drugs.
I think anyone who supports rescheduling cannabis as opposed to removing cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act are going to screw up cannabis and cannabis laws for a very long time! Once big pharma get their money behind prohibition, the government will have more resources to enforce prohibition. Who wants that? Big pharma does. The police do. Anyone else? Well it appears that the CDC (Cannabis Defense Coalition) and the WCA (Washington Cannabis Association) do.
See my post on how we can end prohibition against marijuana on a national level. http://slu2.com/6qh
I truly believe our country is in trouble because of the free reign our federal government has. We need more checks and balances!
