So Clark County Washington has decided to extend the current moratorium on “cannabis collective gardens,” as are afforded by Washington law. I mean, the gardens are allowed. The current moratoriums in this state are bullshit.
My local paper, The Columbian, believes the moratoriums are a good idea. Oh, they don’t state the kiddies nor little kittens would be at risk. They’ve concern for county employees.
‘Scuse me? How the heck did county employees get mixed into this mess? Maybe because no one, not even news paper staff, bother to READ THE DAMNED LAW! oops sorry…
Here’s a link to The Columbian editorial:
What are you talking about?
Here’s my reply:
In response to The Columbian’s editorial column titled, Follow Federal Law: Know that cannabis will be a schedule I drug under the CSA just as long as those corporations that stand to lose millions (billions?), should it be rescheduled, have millions to spend to see that it isn’t.
Know that section RCW69.51A.140 of state law does not speak to “collective gardens,” but to dispensing and dispensaries. Under the law there is no requirement for a collective garden to be registered, licensed or zoned. Don’t let the current moratoriums fool you. They have no teeth. The municipalities are taking actions beyond their legal purview.
That being written then, there is no concern for county employees being prosecuted by the Department of Justice. The subject is moot.
What municipalities should be doing is making it clear they will enforce the current state law as is written. RCW69.51A.085 is quite clear on the definition of a garden. A store front or any other “commercial” interest obviously is not its intent.
Won’t somebody please, oh please, do some research (read the law?!) and mine this mountain back down to a mole hill?
The Columbian has disappointed — being led by the nose…
Man, I really and truly don’t get it.
Cannabis is not the Monster Frankenstein. That propaganda died with Harry Anslinger. Refer Madness is not a documentary. Stop it!
Stop the madness.
