Back in June, I wrote about Change – a medical marijuana dispensary operating in Spokane. Last week they were busted and the dispensary was shut down. A group called the Spokane Regional Dispensary Coalition is planning a protest at the Spokane County Courthouse this morning.
The situation in Spokane is just another exhibit in the case of how our legislature dropped the ball when they had a chance to put together a set of regulations that allowed for qualifying patients to obtain medical marijuana. Patients in Spokane once again have to rely on street dealers.
The dispensary owners are challenging the part of the law that states that a caregiver can only have one patient at a time. I don’t see them succeeding on this point in court. It’s the law that needs to change.
