Weed Island: Is Washington's Vashon the Proving Ground for Legal, Local Pot?

Society & Culture  (tags: Washington State, marijuana, agriculture, society, news, interesting )

- 2061 days ago -
As Wash. State moves to allow the sales of recreational marijuana, Vashon is facing some big changes. Since the passage of ballot measure I-502 last November, Washington is following Colorado as the second state to allow pot sales without a medical card.

What a very beautiful place to live. The growing of pot has it's pros and cons in my opinion, they would need strict regulations in regards to the buying up of properties. If the idea is used correctly that farmers growing food could help to pay some of their bills and keep on farming the food I would be in favor.
Thanks Carrie.

Noted. Thanks for the info, Carrie.
We have MMJ here in AZ, and I think it's been a bit of a financial burden for some--you have to pay for the card, and pay for a doctor, then pay quite high prices for the merchandise. Since cannabis is still on Schedule 1, I think that has been a big obstruction that needs to go as well. It needs to come off Schedule 1, and then "co-ops" should be abundant, where people share the labor and the product. I have a strong belief that cancer patients should be given cannabis at no charge whatsoever. Those with other medical conditions that are severe and would have great relief from using cannabis should also not be charged. It's just the right thing to do.

Anyone with Crohns disease, it works really well. Our Government keeps it at schedule 1 because of the money but really what costs the taxpayers more is the care yearly for the inmates. The prison system needs rejuvenation badly. Marijuana is good herb. We feed sick people morphine which is heroin and many other strong pain killers. And then we have molly and other drugs on the street. Where is the justice? My fear is Monsanto and big farms taking over and adding all kinds of junk and charging you an arm and a leg. The war on drugs needs to end.
