Washington D.C. Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Discounting Meds For Poor People

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, September, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
wa-dc-to-give-discounts-to-poor-peopleA proposed law would make medical marijuana dispensaries in Washington, D.C. give 2% of their profits to a program to provide cannabis to the poor.
 
The Washington Times reports that, in addition to the profit tithe, “Under the regulatory proposal, dispensaries would give at least a 20 percent discount on marijuana to low-income people at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level.” Cards issued to D.C.’s registered patients already indicate if their income level qualifies them for the discounted rate.
 
The goal is to make access to cannabis easier for those economically disadvantaged persons. Although safe access centers in other states may have individual policies regarding discounts for the poor, “This rule is totally unprecedented in the medical marijuana community,” said Alan St. Pierre, Executive Director for national NORML.
 
The District’s first dispensary, Capital City Care, charges from $380 – $440 per ounce of marijuana, according to the report. “Marijuana is overpriced because it’s overregulated, so a program for the poor is necessary,” Dan Riffle of the Marijuana Policy Project told the Times. “There’s this outdated hysteria surrounding marijuana, but it’s much safer than many other medications.”
 
The discount program is still in development and there are issues regarding reporting and collecting that have not been settled.

State would allow up to six marijuana stores in Bellingham

Category: News | Posted on Thu, September, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
more-mj-shops-being-allowed-in-bellinghamFifteen stores in Whatcom County would be allowed to sell marijuana for recreational use beginning next year, under new rules approved Wednesday, Sept. 4 by the Washington Liquor Control Board.
 
The Liquor Control Board also requires a warning label for each baggie sold: "Warning: This product has intoxicating effects and can be habit forming."
 
Retail stores would be allocated by 2010 population data. According to the revised rules, seven stores would be allowed in Whatcom County, six in Bellingham and one each in Lynden and Ferndale. Seattle would get the most with 21 stores; King County would get 61 stores. Skagit County will be allowed 10 stores.
 
The revised rules also define where the stores can be located and - in an apparent bid to limit pot franchises or large-scale enterprises - won't allow anyone to have more than three licenses in each of the producer, processor and retail categories.
