Medical Cannabis – Democracy Derailed Is Democracy Denied

From: axisoflovesf – January 1, 1970

Greetings Good morning I agree with Ms.Coutee on several issuesstated bellow . Here is what all to often is left off the table as in this started with ab2312 patients access to affordable medical cannabis free if need be. As I stated in my opposition to ab266 before the senate health comittee the most impactful ban statewide is on patients who due to failing health cannot afford market rate cannabis. The state does not have to reinvent the wheel Washington D.C. has a law provides for the patients who are living in poverty as do bay area cities. When we spoke with Assembly member Bonta office we clarified that the verbiage “primary caregiver” needed to be amended to patient provider. When we reveiwed the first draft from Governor Brown it read “caregiver” or primary caregiver that was good middle ground. I am saddened by the cloak of secrecy of the newest draft. The entire community is in a state of uproar. If we are indeed faced with a cut off date for compliance that has come and gone This will help the greedy among us corner the market and push numerous now law abiding collectives to the illicit market to benefit the few with no benefit for our states medical cannabis patients but fewer choices and higher prices. I sincerely hope that in the 11th hour this did not all go south for the very people these laws were written for us the patients.
