2 medical marijuana dispensaries open in Vt.

vt-dispensaries-openBURLINGTON (AP) -- Two medical marijuana dispensaries have opened in Vermont after the Legislature passed a law allowing the drug to be dispensed to patients with chronic illness or intractable pain.
 
Champlain Valley Dispensary opened Monday in Burlington and the Vermont Patients Alliance opened a similar dispensary in Montpelier days before.
 
A third facility is planned in Brandon.
 
"This is a groundbreaking. It's important and exciting to be doing this in Burlington," said Shayne Lynn, proprietor of the Burlington dispensary.
 
Two years ago the Legislature passed a law permitting medical marijuana to be dispensed under strict rules.
 
They are required to grow their own marijuana in a secure environment. Customers must be qualified to buy the drug and show proof of that from the state. They then make an appointment to pick up the drug.
 
The dispensary also must consider what marijuana is selling for on the black market when it sets a price.
 
"We have to be concerned about the black market price. We can't undercut that price, because that might cause someone to resell it," he said.
 
The Burlington dispensary does offer a sliding scale to patients who can't pay the full price, he said.
 
The dispensary provides two strains of marijuana in three different potencies.
 
The drug goes for $225 to $450 an ounce, depending on its quality but most patients get smaller amounts. The dispensary serves 12-15 patients.
 
Lynn said he plans to pull back on his commercial photography business to dedicate himself to the dispensary.
 
"I totally believe in the plant and the science behind it. I had a very close friend who was a patient; I could see the relief he was getting from using cannabis. It was the one thing that got him through chemotherapy," he said.

Oregon House votes to legalize medical marijuana dispensaries

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
oregon-medical-dispensariesSALEM, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon House took a step toward legalizing medical marijuana dispensaries on Monday as lawmakers narrowly approved a bill that would license and regulate retail outlets that connect marijuana cardholders with the drug.
 
Under existing law, the state's nearly 55,000 medical marijuana cardholders must grow the pot themselves or find a person to grow it for them. The bill would give cardholders another option: purchasing their medicine from state-regulated medical marijuana retail outlets.
 
House Bill 3460, which passed 31-27, would require dispensaries to register with the state medical marijuana program and meet certain quality standards. The bill next goes to the Senate, which could vote on it later this week.
 
The bill sparked a hearty debate among lawmakers Monday.
 
Critics said it doesn't do enough to stop what they see as abuses of the state's medical marijuana program.
 
Rep. Andy Olson, an Albany Republican and former Oregon State Police lieutenant, said the bill lacks teeth to crack down on facilities that don't comply with the new regulations.
 
"I'm a major advocate for those who are in need of marijuana as a medicine," he said. "I am opposed to the abuse."
 
Olson said he wanted to craft a new bill for the 2014 Legislature to consider that would address his concerns.
 
Rep. Peter Buckley, an Ashland Democrat and a chief sponsor of the bill, acknowledged that the state's medical marijuana program has problems, but said the bill was never meant to be a panacea.
 
"This bill focuses on one thing: safe access to medical marijuana for people who are legally qualified to access medical marijuana," Buckley said.
 
Emphasizing this point, Rep. Mitch Greenlick, D-Portland, told lawmakers: "This bill does not fight Mexican cartels. The bill doesn't solve hunger in Oregon. The bill doesn't help the Blazers win the championship. The bill does a simple thing."
 
Greenlick said the bill is intended to create an easy, safe way for users to obtain the drug from dispensaries.
