Why Patients DO NOT WANT 5052 and the Cody Striker!
The version that passed should be on the leg website by tomorrow afternoon. Yes, the Cody Striker passed along with 5 amendments (none of them fix it). The only good amendment adds traumatic brain injury to the qualifying conditions.
Denied access to stores w/ medical endorsements/products.
Section 21 (1)(d) allows federal agents and prosecutors to access patient database without a warrant
4 plants and one ounce for non-registered patients is completely unworkable
Section 18 would let the DOH obtain the names of patients not in the database if the physician writes more than 30 authorizations in less than a month…. Specifically, section 18(5)
Section 26 (2) has a no valid reason for existing. Why penalize a patient because they live within a mile of an I-502 store? What public policy does this serve?
Section 26 (4)(d) requires all patients to “provide non-monetary resources and labor in order to participate”. So this excludes people who are physically unable to do labor from being able to be in a cooperative.
Section 26 (2) seems to place favor toward one group of businesses and/or entities vs. another. Doesn’t the State Constitution forbid such lawless tyranny?
Section 26 forces patients to use a patient’s home for cooperative gardening and is subject to inspections and mandatory registering.
Section 26 forces cooperatives of 4 patients to maintain a “seed to sale” tracking program similar to the commercial model, yet gives no way to legally do that without breaking the law. For instance, under I-502, when producers are first given a license, there is a 15 day window where the WSLCB “looks the other way” while the licensee obtains their plants and seeds from the Black or Medical markets.
Section 27 (1) appears to remove the ability of a patient to also be a designated provider to someone in the same home. If more than one patient lives there, they must submit to being a cooperative and be registered.

This gives the state the ability to say my personal strains that I have cultivated and bred over time will not likely meet their criteria as “medicine” since it is only strains used for products and usable marijuana sold in I-502 stores.
They are giving legal protection of saying THEIR pot is not schedule one, but my is.
