Our state government is typically tightening its marijuana rules & regulations

For a state government that is made up of people who tout themselves as “small government” proponents, they sure care about to create endless laws to over step their job in their citizens’ lives.

  • Reproductive rights & wages are multiple examples that instantly come to mind, however there are definitely more.

But the examples don’t just end there, that’s for sure. I remember back when they started cracking down on prescription pain pills, even for chronic pain patients & cancer patients. They were citing the increases in opiate abuse throughout our state, however that was mostly due to heroin abuse. As a performative action, the governor made the lives of cancer patients much more angry while doing actually little to entirely improve the opiate crisis. Things have changed since then, but I never forgot. Now they’re doing the same thing with medical marijuana. The governor overnight decided to impose caps on all of the routes of administration for cannabis products. Now people who need high doses of cannabis for their medical complications were turned away from dispensaries the afternoon after the surprise ruling went into effect. You can appeal the cap, but I have heard the process takes multiple weeks or longer. Why does our state government keep insisting on mangling the marijuana rules & regulations? The people I was with and I were doing perfectly good before they messed everything up with these crazy caps on THC. Some of us require more cannabis to medication than others & there’s nothing wrong with that. While I’m not affected by the new rule because of the amount of THC I consume weekly, I know of multiple people who were instantly affected by it. My heart goes out to these people & their dwindling medical cannabis recommendation.
