Back in 2012, people of Washington State voted for the legalization of Marijuana. They were successful in putting the bill that prohibits the use, sale, and possession of marijuana, to its grave. After the legalization of pot, its sale sky-rocketed and it became easily accessible. The legal adult sale of marijuana in the state of Washington began in 2014. In December 2016, monthly sales of marijuana, in the state of Washington were recorded to be 112 million!
So this means that the marijuana industry is booming and it looks like it has a great future ahead. Hey hey… wait a minute. Things are not as rosy as it may seem. Representative Brad Klippert is trying his best to bring the dead back to life. What does that mean? Well, the representative has introduced a bill in the Washington state, which if passed, would repeal the current marijuana legalization bill. The argument of Representative Klippert is that the bill hasn’t helped the medical community rather marijuana legalization bill has only has encouraged adults to use marijuana for recreational purposes.
The critics of Brad Klippert do believe that the Washington marijuana bill was not flawless but instead of repealing and declaring marijuana illegal again, the bill should be beefed-up to help the medical community. If the bill legalizing marijuana is repealed again, then the possession, sale and the consumption of marijuana would become illegal again.
In our humble opinion, what is needed here is that the Washington should make the bill more stringent so that the patients suffering from diseases like cancer, epilepsy, PTSD etc. could use marijuana to reduce their pain and the number of people smoking marijuana just for the recreational purpose could decline. Repealing the legalization bill and making marijuana illegal again would not do any good rather it would encourage people to cultivate cannabis in their backyards.
There is an uncertainty looming about whether the bill would be passed or will it die again. No matter what the result be, but the fact is that the Trump administration has given power to the long-time drug warriors by appointing them in his administration, which increases the chances of the bill being passed. If you are opposing this bill, then you should immediately contact your representative and inform him about your feelings about the repealing of the bill that was passed unanimously in the Washington state in 2012.
