MedPot, Unresolved in NZ, Sorted in Washington
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- After meeting with law enforcement leaders, Washington's Health Department has cut its suggested two-month supply of medical marijuana by nearly a third - a change that riled patients' advocates and sparked threats of a lawsuit.
On Tuesday, the state Health Department laid out its suggestion for a 60-day supply of medical marijuana at 24 ounces of usable pot, along with six mature plants and 18 immature plants. That mirrors the limits used in Oregon, and is a significant drop from the 35 ounces and 100 square feet of growing area the agency was considering after gathering volumes of comment from people around the state.
If only New Zealand had this dilemma!
Despite the woeful ignorance of many politicians who believe the crap Police dole out to them when they mockingly have declared "there is no one in jail for cannabis!", Medicinal use remains unresolved. A bill before the 'house of representatives' has been languishing for years under the legislative tables.
The worst offenders are not those who use medpot, rather they are the gaumless and morally illiterate politicians who pander to ignorance AND dishonor the parliamentary prayer everyday.
Not one of these people should be re-elected ever.
