Retail marijuana sales in Washington face regulatory delays

Category: News | Posted on Tue, April, 8th 2014 by THCFinder

SEATTLE — Drive down virtually any thoroughfare in Seattle and you are likely to pass several medical marijuana dispensaries. On Rainier Avenue, in southeast Seattle, the Northwest Cannabis Market sits between a fish store and an Italian bakery. A mile or so down the road, another dispensary occupies an old drive-in burger stand. There are about half as many medical marijuana dispensaries in Seattle — about 200 — as Starbucks locations.
 
But unlike in Colorado, where retail sales of marijuana for recreational uses began on New Year’s Day, a year after voters passed a ballot initiative legalizing the drug, Washington state regulators have taken months to craft new rules, and to comb through the thousands of applications for growing and retail licenses. More than 16 months after voters approved legalization, anyone hoping to score some dope in Seattle still has to have a medical prescription.
 
The state Liquor Control Board, tasked with overseeing marijuana sales, estimates the first of what will ultimately be 334 stores that receive licenses will be open by July.
 
The delay is a product of ambiguously-worded 15-year-old legislation and strict structures in which marijuana growers will have to operate; it has served to heighten pre-existing tensions between the state’s thriving medical marijuana industry and retail sellers eager to turn a profit. And the delay is costing businesses eager to begin selling, and the state hungry for tax revenue, millions of dollars.
 
“There’s people that are spending money and taking risk” to set up retail stores, said John Davis, CEO of the Northwest Patient Resource Center, a Seattle dispensary. “The Liquor Control Board being all over the place, this could very easily turn into a lawsuit.”
 
Part of the blame for the delay rests with the authors of a 1998 ballot initiative that legalized marijuana for medical use. That law allowed patients to possess up to a 60-day supply of marijuana, though what constituted a 60-day supply was never defined. The state legislature passed a bill that would have imposed regulations on the medical marijuana industry in 2011, but then-Gov. Christine Gregoire (D), worried that those regulations would put state officials at risk of arrest by federal agents, vetoed it.

How medical marijuana is helping California children with epilepsy

After 25 failed epilepsy medications, Nazy Nouri had two treatment choices for her 9-year-old daughter: cutting out part of the little girl’s brain or marijuana.
 
“I really felt like we had nothing to lose; this was the last resort,” Nouri said. “If it doesn’t work, then we were going to maybe go with brain surgery.”
 
Her daughter Kiana started using an oil extract from cannabis in December. The oil comes from Realm of Caring California, a group trying to find a permanent home in the Southland after the city of Los Angeles shuttered its North Hills facility.
 
“After 10 days, I saw immediate results, she was more coherent, her speech was coming out,” Nouri said. “I’ve had her in speech therapy since she was 24 months old. All of a sudden she was speaking in sentences.”
 
Nouri never wanted to give her child marijuana.
 
“I was concerned, but you have to weigh what your options are,” she said.
 
Doctors planned to remove part of Kiana’s brain without a guarantee the drastic measure would work, Nouri said.
 
Her daughter’s first seizure happened at 4 months old, they increased in frequency and intensity as she aged. The constant convulsions left Kiana developmentally stunted.
 
The Northridge family tried everything as Kiana’s seizures worsened. The neurologist would add one medication, then another.
 
“We were on a combination of three medications at one point,” Nouri said. “She was all drugged up, still having seizures.”
 
As the family prepared for surgery, Nouri heard the first stories about Charlotte Figi in Colorado.
 
Last year, 5-year-old Charlotte became the poster-child for an oil extracted from cannabis that treats seizures and cancer for adolescents and adults. Charlotte’s Web, the strain of sativa named for its first patient, produces high amounts of cannabidiol, or CBD, but low amounts of the psychoactive compound tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.
 
A person taking CBD gets the medicinal effects of cannabis without the intoxication, some doctors claim. The medication is extracted from the marijuana plant using a rotary evaporator, mixed with olive oil, then ingested.

Maryland House Votes To Decriminalize Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, April, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
maryland-votes-to-decrim-weedA measure to decriminalize cannabis possession has passed through the Maryland House of Representatives in a decisive vote. The proposal would remove criminal penalties for the possession of up to 10 grams of cannabis.
 
Earlier this month Maryland’s Senate voted to approve the same measure, though the measure will go back to the Senate for one final vote given it was amended in the House Judiciary Committee. The House version, as with the Senate version, would make the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis a $100 ticket. However, the House version would make a second offense $250, and subsequent offenses $500; it would also call for drug rehab for those under 21.
 
Floor amendments were introduced to retain a misdemeanor conviction for those consuming in public, to reduce the possession limit to 5 grams, to double the fines and to retain criminal penalties for minors; all four were rejected.
 
Once approve by the Senate – which is expected Monday – the measure will go to Maryland’s governor for consideration.
