@9 I-502's regulations do not apply to medical access points, collective gardens etc. The regulations apply only to the retail stores I-502 sets up which sell to people over 21 regardless of medical status.

CowardX you haven't read the bill. There are no "State run stores" under I-502. Recreational marijuana stores will be run by individuals subject to regulation by the liquor control board. And it does legalize... up to an ounce of usable marijuana, 16 ounces of solid food, and 72 ounces for production, sale, and possession for anyone over the age of 21. No criminal, no civil penalty. The governor can not veto a citizen's initiative like she could the senate bill. Your concerns are easily addressed if you would just take the time to check.

Don't listen to fascists like Sarich. I was just banned from the Cannacare messageboard for posting the following. I'm glad I saved it. Sarich and his minions obviously don't want those they are manipulating to hear the truth :

"You've been reading, and appear to be peddling misinformation and propoganda. I-502 does nothing to hurt pot patients and it's rather shameful that you would make such a claim. Wake up and start doing what you can to pass I-502 and make Washington the first place in the world to have LEGAL marijuana. Do it while you still have time or you'll have to live with the shame of having actively opposed our best chance to make this happen. "Minor improvement" my ass. I-502 will make it legal for adults over the age of 21 to possess up to ounce of usable bud, 16oz of dry food, and 72 oz of liquid infused products. It is not just "decrim". It actually alters the code so a cop will not have anything to even charge you with. There is no evidence whatsoever that the initiative will increase the price of marijuana. The price is artifically high right now because of prohibition. I-502 does not "trade away the driving rights of many patients". If you get arrested for DUI under current law and test positive for even latent THC in your blood you will be prosecuted. The current policy is zero tolerance, and there is NO EXCEPTION for patients. I-502 will be one of (if not the first) law to actually make a distinction between active THC and carboxy THC that sits in your fat cells. You are being manipulated by those that are profiting off of the current system. Don't believe it. Stop fearmongering, and have the intellectual and moral courage to do the right thing and VOTE YES. Ten thousand people are arrested every year for simple possession. They suffer, their children suffer, their communities suffer. WE PAY to put them in jail, and in some cases to put their kids into foster care. They have a hard time getting jobs, housing, or financial aid when they get out. The current policy is a huge disaster, and you are working to maintain the status quo. Shame on you while you do this. Ten thousand people will be arrested every year in Washington if your fatuous campaign is successful. It won't be forgotten."
