Here are are the list of people from the community that signed in to support Senator Rivers bill 5887 to end medical cannabis in Washington. Thanks to them, Rivers’ bill has now moved out of the Healthcare Committee and on to the Commerce & Labor committee. From there it goes to the Senate floor for a vote.
What do all these people (except Ryan Day) have in common?
Most if not all have applied for 502 Producer licenses.
Ezra Eickmeyer (Washington Cannabis Association)
Alex Cooley (Solstice)
Dawn Darrington (Choice Wellness)
Patrick Seifert (Rainier Express)
Tammy Ramsay (Bicknell)
Cat Jeter (Independent Cannabis Producers)
Phil Dawdy (Washington Cannabis Association)
Jake Lamont (Associated with Phil & Ezra)
Michael Paxhia (Herbal Healing)
Jeff Gilmore (Tenino)
They added their support to these fine folks:
Kristi Weeks – DOH
Don Pierce – Washington Association of Sheriffs’ and Police Chiefs
Candice Bock – Association of Washington Cities
Brian Enslow – Wash. Association of Counties
Rick Garza – Liquor Control Board
If you don’t believe me, here’s the official sign-in sheet from the Committee Staff. If medical dies this year, you’ll know who to thank.
Please contact the Senate Commerce & Labor Committee Members below and tell them no changes to RCW 69.51a in 2014! No registry, no taxation, NO LCB!
