The bill was a disaster for patients.
IT MAY BE QUIET INSIDE CURED COLLECTIVE MEDICAL MARIJUANA
SHOP TODAY -- BUT ON THE INSIDE THEY'RE CELEBRATING.
SO ELATED -- THAT SENATE BILL 5887 FAILED -- THEY'RE
HAVING A SALE -28 percent off.
JOSEPH CORCORAN, CURED COLLECTIVE @ 9
It's 5 plus 8 plus 8 plus 7, it's 28.
THE BILL WOULD HAVE LIMITED THE AMOUNT OF WEED PATIENTS
CAN POSSESS -- RAISE TAXES -- AND FINALLY HAVE SOME
OVERSIGHT ON THIS UNREGULATED INUSTRY.
OWNER JOSEPH CORCORAN PUT A COMPUTER UP IN THE SHOP
-- FOR PATIENTS TO EMAIL LAWMAKERS -- SHOWING OPPOSITION
TO THE BILL.
JOSEPH CORCORAN, CURED COLLECTIVE @ 10
Actually become part of the political system and its
kind of cool.
REPRESENTATIVE KEVIN PARKER SAYS DIFFERENCES BETWEEN
LEGISLATORS ON HOW TO SPLIT TAX REVENUE -- KILLED
KEVIN PARKER, R 6TH LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT @ 11
There's a lot of ways in which people are proposing
that money get spent, but Olympia also has a habit
of spending money it doesn't yet have.
THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE WAS LIKELY WATCHING A KEY
PART OF THE BILL -- THAT DEALS WITH REGULATION.
THE D-O-J SAID IN AUGUST IT WOULDN'T INTERVENE IF
THE STATE FOLLOWED EIGHT GUIDELINES.
MEDICAL POT REGULATION WAS ONE OF THEM.
A FAILED BILL MEANS ONE MORE YEAR WITHOUT IT.
YOU MAY REMEMBER IN 2009, THE U-S ATTORNEY SHUT DOWN
MEDICAL MARIJUANA IN SPOKANE.
SHOP OWNERS ACCUSED TURNING BIG PROFITS ON THE DRUG
SOME WORRY UPSETTING THE D-O-J MAY RESULT IN RAIDS
CORCORAN HOPES THEY'LL BE SYMPATHETIC.
JOSEPH CORCORAN, CURED COLLECTIVE @ 12
It's a distinct possibility but again I would hope
they would have some compassion for our patients and
not buy into the hype that many of our patients don't
need this medicine.
I CALLED U-S ATTORNEY MIKE ORMSBY -- BUT HE WAS TRAVELING
AND NOT AVAILABLE TO COMMENT TODAY.
HIS OFFICE HOWEVER TOLD ME THEY PLAN TO FOLLOW THE
I ASKED FOR CLARIFICATION TO SEE IF THEY'LL SHUT DOWN
THE DISPENSARIES OR ALLOW THEM TO STAY OPEN -- THEY
JUST SAID THEY'RE FOLLOWING THE GUIDELINES.
