Now the state government is approving a similar rolling recommendation for all other routes of administration, but this time on a 70-day rolling limit
I wish that my state government didn’t have such a combative position on cannabis users like they do. We all banded together with the rest of the state to pass a new constitutional amendment to legalized medical marijuana, garnering over 70% of the vote. But despite the state’s wide approval of marijuana, the government here is always imposing new rules to limit usage for most patients. This is really frustrating for us all because we voted to approve a law where we expected similar rights as medical cannabis patients are guaranteed in other states with existing medical marijuana laws. In some states you can get up to an ounce of cannabis flower products in the course of a day. In our state it’s limited to 2.5 ounces in a 35 day period. And there is a rolling recommendation that limits your purchases each time you make one. So if you bought an ounce today, you’ll be limited for the following 35 days for up to 1.5 ounces. When this order went into effect, it retroactively applied it to all previous purchases going back 35 days from the current day. That meant a lot of people were barred from getting cannabis again for 35 days when this rule took effect. Now the state government is approving a similar rolling recommendation for all other routes of administration, but this time on a 70-day rolling limit. I had to get my medical cannabis doctor to increase my recommendation because the rule affected me retroactively when it took effect. It’s frustrating, but what are you supposed to do?
