The 2015 Washington State legislative session rewrote the existing medical cannabis law. Misnamed the Patient Protection Act but for the most part it seems to protect I502 business and those in the business of patients. Less rights, less freedom, greater bureacracy and more personal invasion. The new law fully goes into effect by July 1, 2016.
Decarboxylate Your Medical Cannabis
Green Buddha is amazed most cannabis users don't know to decarboxylate their cannabis for the best results. All patients need to get the most out of their medicine, particularly if they are attentive to cost (and who isn't?). So be sure to decarboxylate your cannabis so all the THC and other cannabinoids are available.
Our mission is to promote and support medical cannabis, by providing Washington State medical cannabis patients and the interested public, with clear and accurate medical cannabis and cannabis science resources. We have extensive experience in the efficiacy of medical cannabis and use this experience and knowledge to filter what we deem the most relevant information. But do not let this inhibit you from examining all with a critical eye.
Green Buddha is a proud supporter of I502 - which legalized an ounce of cannabis for all adult 21 and older, not only patients. We have also embraced regulation. However, we have been disappointed with the slow implementation of I502 and the lack of attention to health and safety concerns.
Paramount for patients is the fact that currently all I502 cannabis has been grown with any number of 300 pesticidal compounds. Furthermoe, the state is not testing nor otherwise verifying that the final cannabis consumables are free of pesticidal residues. Currently patients would do well to avoid I502 products uintil this is corrected, perhaps July 1, 2016.
