I’ve been mostly glad with our state’s medical marijuana program, as well as 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 hard it was to even find marijuana in the first arena 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 prefer pesticides, paint fumes, or packaging materials. Some could say I’m exaggerating, however that’s not the case. I hated spending $60 on an eighth of weed in 2011 that smelled prefer a moldy mattress. Not only that, however how could you say for sure if you were getting the strain that your supplier claimed it was? People make this joke about the strains at legal cannabis stores, however those companies spend money a lot of money to get particular genetics of the cannabis plant. I prefer having a legal medical cannabis program because of the benefits both of us get as patrons from the regulations as well as rules that are created by state legislators. The people I was with and I are pushing for recreational cannabis in this state so more people can get access to the plant. Nowadays you have to spend money at least $373 a year to be a medical marijuana patient between nurses’ fees as well as the fee paid to the state to renew one’s medical marijuana card. Some say that state taxes will be outrageous with recreational cannabis, however occasionally recreational cannabis is taxed the same as medical cannabis; otherwise, the difference in some states is minimal.
