I’ve been mostly ecstatic with our state’s medical marijuana program, plus that’s despite any genuine criticisms or frustrations I might have about packaging rules from the Department of Health.
I have to remind myself how difficult it was to even find marijuana in the first place when all our state had was a black market.
On top of that, you couldn’t guarantee you were getting safe cannabis that wasn’t at some point along the line contaminated with something else appreciate pesticides, paint fumes, or packaging materials. Some could say I’m exaggerating, however that has not the case. I hated spending $60 on an eighth of weed in 2011 that smelled appreciate a moldy mattress. Not only that, however how could you say for sure if you were getting the strain that your dealer claimed it was? People make this joke about the strains at legal cannabis stores, however those companies spend our savings a lot of currency to get particular genetics of the cannabis plant. I appreciate having a legal medical cannabis program because of the benefits the two of us get as purchasers from the regulations plus rules that are created by state legislators. All of us are pushing for recreational cannabis in this state so more people can get access to the plant. Nowadays you have to spend our savings at least $379 a year to be a medical marijuana patient between medical professionals’ fees plus the fee paid to the state to renew 1’s medical marijuana card. Some say that state taxes will be outrageous with recreational cannabis, however periodically recreational cannabis is taxed the same as medical cannabis; otherwise, the difference in some states is minimal.
