Rally to save medical cannabis | Seattle editorial photographer

About 150 medical Cannabis patients and supporters crowded the sundial at the Washington state capitol in Olympia Wednesday June 19. Their message was simple: patients should not be taxed on their medicine, and the Washington state Liquor Control Board has no business regulating medicine. Voters this year passed Initiative 502 legalizing, taxing and regulating the recreational use of marijuana by those over 21. The board was tasked with creating the regulatory framework for a legal marijuana market from seed to store. Some patients worry the board’s financial interest in taxing recreational marijuana will mean the end of storefront access to medicinal marijuana, which is not currently taxed.
