Cannabis Patients United Two Lobby Days at the Capitol - 8:00 am
State of Washington Capital, Olympia, WA
Help to save medical cannabis from total state control. The LCB has drafted proposed rules that would: 1. Remove a patient’s right to grow their own medication, 2. Abolish collective gardens, 3. Create a registry, 4. Not allow any new conditions to be added to the qualifying conditions, 5. Redefine what conditions do qualify. Bring your red shirts and help show strength in numbers as we will be making in person visits to meet up with legislators & demand the state preserve the rights of cannabis patients using humanitarian compassion as the guide, not corruption, profits and tax revenue. It is also about open government and accountability. Info:
