The most open and UNRESTRICTIVE medical marijuana law this side of California.

Question 3 presents us with the most open and UNRESTRICTIVE medical marijuana law this side of California. 

Compared to other New England states, this law presents a wide open system of marijuana production and distribution that is rife with loopholes and open to abuse.  If you take 3 minutes to understand this 6 page law, you will find that:  Question 3 has:

  • NO strict definition of debilitation medical condition.
    The “other conditions” category is what opens marijuana use up to the other 95% of marijuana card holders in California and Colorado who do not have the severe conditions listed in Question 3, but who regularly purchase and  use marijuana anyway.
  • NO minimum age limits on marijuana card holders. 
  • NO parental consent required.
  • NO limits on an amount prescribed – simply and undefined 60-day supply.  In Washington State a 60-day supply was recently defined as 24 ounces, or about 800 joints.
  • NO ban on smoking in the presence of children.
  • NO limit on the number of users a grower can grow marijuana for.
  • NO expiration date on a marijuana card.
    Until our beleaguered Department of Public Health scrambles to write an set of regulations for an entirely new system of production and distribution of a drug outside our regular pharmacy system, growers and users can proceed on January 1, 2013, with a signature from one willing physician and a certified letter sent to DHP – with no regulation at all.
  • NO tax revenue to support an inspection and enforcement program to root out drug diversion. The stores will be non-profit.
  • NO licensed pharmacists in the marijuana stores.
    These “treatment centers” will require no medical staff whatsoever — only sales staff 21 or over with no record of a felony drug offense. 
  • NO requirement for marijuana store license renewal.
  • NO limits on where marijuana stores can be sited.
  • NO requirement to track pot purchases through the prescription drug monitoring program, so multiple store purchases cannot be tracked.  

There has to be a better way to help the truly suffering.
