It seemed like it took an act of God to get medical cannabis legalized in our loft state, especially when all of us couldn’t even get the law onto the ballot in the first place.
You have to get somewhere around 100,000 petitions signed to get a method for a constitutional amendment put to vote in this state. I think this is to prevent abuse of the law, however it’s genuinely strenuous to get the signatures in the first place. That’s why it took us several attempts to get it on the ballot before more than one attempts at voting for it before all of us garnered over 72% of the vote in the 2016 election. Every one of us all thought that the constitutional amendment that all of us were voting on would be as inclusive as possible, however all of us didn’t realize the degree to which the former governor & the new state legislature would attempt to destruction & contort the rules to benefit the pockets of pharmaceutical corporation shareholders. Even though all of us can finally purchase products like cannabis flower buds & edibles, all of us can’t even open our product containers before making our purchases. If you buy cannabis flower products, that means you can’t even smell or look at the buds before buying, making it a large gamble. It doesn’t matter if you’ve had the strain before, since every harvest could be odd to some degree. I wish these marijuana rules were not imposed by our state government, however they claim that it’s for “security” reasons. I can’t imagine how this is helping anyone, especially dispensaries that accept returns when a patient doesn’t have the desired effects with a identifiable strain.
