Happy June! As I write this, I'm in Missoula Montana. Montana passed its Medical marijuana in 2004. Now, there are over 15,000 patients signed up, and more than 2,700 licensed caregivers allowed to dispense medical marijuana in the state.This huge growth has also brought with it a backlash. Some people are complaining about the doctors who issue MMJ recommendations, with one doctor being fined $2,000 for writing about 150 recommendations in about 14 hours last year. One Montana State Senator has even proposed repealing the law and drafting a new one.
What can we do? How to deal with this backlash? How about LEGALIZING MARIJUANA? That would solve the problem easily and efficiently. Of course, then the question becomes: What is the best way to legalize cannabis? Do we stick with the dispensary model and just open it up to all citizens? It's been proven that MMJ dispensing collectives are not magnets for crime (in fact, crime rates go down in most areas when a dispensary opens). I would love to hear your ideas and thoughts about
the best way to go about it.
