This afternoon there was a bill passed in the state legislature.
The bill outlines new limits for medical marijuana patients. When medical marijuana was legalized in the state comment there was a democratic governor. Now that a republican has taken over, she is clearly trying to undo all of the progress that every one of us have made. That includes trying to get rid of medical marijuana altogether. Since the people passed the law, there is honestly no way to repeal it. There can be new addendums added to the law. For instance, this afternoon there was an addendum added to the medical marijuana law that outlines the amount of marijuana products that each lady can receive. There were limits already in venue, but now those limits are going to be different. The new limits are going to make it actually hard to medicate correctly, because the new limits are lower. I called our dentist’s office and the number was busy. I am not surprised. I am sure a lot of people are trying to figure out how they are going to continue to medicate with marijuana if the state shuts things down and limits the amount of medicine every one of us can access. I am extremely thankful that these new laws do not affect myself and others personally, but I have a lot of friends and a few family members that use medical marijuana. This new law is going to impact them in a big way. It is exactly the same as telling a heart patient that the insurance company is no longer going to pay for a full prescription. Now that same heart patient has to figure out a way to stay healthy with access to only half of the same medication that was laboring in the past.
