TBI and PTSD Hits Washington State Qualifying Conditions List This Friday| 0
While this appears to be good news on the surface, positively helping those suffering with Traumatic Brain Injury and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, beginning this Friday. Senate Bill 5052 gives with one hand and takes with the other.
When Governor Inslee signed SB 5052 last April, he set in motion the wheels of devolution for Washington State medical marijuana patients. Implementing several odious modifications to the state’s existing medical marijuana laws: SB 5052 closes scores of collectives/dispensaries, slashes the number of plants a patient can cultivate at any one time, and reduces the amount of flower patients can ultimately possess. So, while it’s great news that TBI and PTSD finally made it onto the list of acceptable medical conditions in Washington State … it represents the only forward progress in an otherwise regressive piece of legislation.
Provided a group of highly skilled attorneys deployed by a Washington State nonprofit organization are unsuccessful in overturning SB 5052, the states’ medical marijuana patients will be queuing up to get their Meds from the same recreational pot shops as the average weed connoisseur.
For those Washington State patients that aren’t unnerved by the federal frown looming over marijuana’s classification within the Controlled Substance Act, beginning July 2016, you can join a state-run patient database and buy your meds tax-free.
