    Living here in Washington State, I much prefer our current rules for Medical Marijuana than what our recreational pot laws allow. Not the least of the differences is that our medical laws allow you to grow your own, while the recreational laws do not allow home grows. Tied with that, our medical laws allow one to possess amounts consistent with supplying one's needs from crop to crop. Most seriously, due to the recreational law not being intended to replace the medical system, many of the concentrates that are used medicinally are not currently allowed under the recreational rules. Oh, and medical and recreational pot have different taxes and license fees. Keeping the two systems is what was intended when we legalized recreational pot, but there are now a number of groups, including recreational pot enterprises that are trying to get the WSLCB to merge medical users into the commercial pot system, and get rid of our communal gardens and home growers.

    Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your shackles. It is by the picket line and direct action that true freedom will be won, not by electing people who promise to screw us less than the other guy.
