Rep. Luis Moscoso, helps unveil bipartisan medical cannabis bill Feb 11, 2015 at 11:58AM
Representatives Luis Moscoso (D-Mountlake Terrace) and Maureen Walsh (R-Walla Walla) have introduced legislation to create a recognizable system of licensing and regulation for medical cannabis. Moscoso represents Bothell and north Kirkland from the 1st Legislative District. House Bill 2058 is identical to legislation that passed both the House and Senate in 2011, before being largely vetoed due to concerns about federal intervention.
“With the legalization of recreational marijuana and subsequent changes in federal law and enforcement, we have a real opportunity to create a better medical marijuana system for Washington,” Moscoso said. “It’s time we established clear and consistent regulations that preserve patient rights.”
