A few years ago, Washington state lawmakers debated a bill that would require all businesses to provide the public with access to medical marijuana.
They couldn’t agree on what that means for a variety of reasons.
At the time, the state was a hotbed of marijuana legalization, with dispensaries and growers popping up all over the state.
The bill was backed by medical marijuana advocacy groups and was opposed by drug enforcement groups, which argued it would undermine their efforts to keep marijuana out of the hands of minors.
The marijuana advocates eventually dropped their opposition.
But in the intervening years, the issue has taken on new meaning for some.
In a series of recent articles, I’ve taken a closer look at how the cannabis industry is evolving to accommodate medical marijuana access.
In this first installment, I’ll describe the ways the industry is changing to accommodate the growing number of medical marijuana dispensaries.
Marijuana dispensaries are a part of Washington state’s thriving marijuana industry.
But the growing popularity of the industry has spawned a new set of challenges for the state’s medical marijuana providers.
What’s the difference?
A dispensary’s business model varies from state to state, with some offering marijuana to patients at a lower cost, others offering it at a higher price, and still others offering both.
The Washington State Medical Marijuana Commission has proposed regulating the industry differently, but in the end, it’s going to need to look at each state’s model and make some kind of adjustment in how it treats medical marijuana patients.
That’s the first step.
Next, I’m going to take a look at the business model of the marijuana dispensaries in Washington state.
But first, a few key points about marijuana dispensaries There are roughly 300 dispensaries operating in Washington.
That means there are more than 300 medical marijuana businesses that provide marijuana to Washington residents.
Of those, more than half are located in the city of Spokane, and most of those are located on the Eastside of Seattle, in the suburb of West Seattle.
All told, more residents live in the East Seattle neighborhood than in the entire state of Washington.
The number of dispensaries has increased steadily in recent years.
According to the latest data from the Department of Business and Economic Development, the number of recreational marijuana dispensaries has more than doubled in just the past decade.
According on its website, Washington State Dispensaries has more licensed dispensaries than any other state in the nation, with more than 15,000 licensed dispensaries operating across the state at the time of this writing.
There are also more dispensaries in the Seattle area than any state in America, with nearly 2,000 locations.
These numbers make it clear that the demand for medical marijuana is on the rise in Washington, and many of the states that have approved recreational marijuana sales are seeing an uptick in demand for marijuana.
What does that mean for the Washington State Department of Health?
The Washington Department of Public Health has said that the increase in demand is driven by medical use, which it says is the most important factor in the legalization of marijuana.
It says the majority of patients in the state are able to access marijuana through their primary care physician, and the Department also says that more than 80 percent of medical cannabis patients use medical marijuana to treat their chronic pain, as opposed to recreational use.
And the department says the growing demand for medicinal marijuana is helping to address the chronic pain of many of its patients.
So, does that make it a viable option for Washington?
There’s no evidence to support that claim.
While there are a few studies that look at marijuana use and marijuana use disorders in the context of marijuana use disorder diagnoses, those studies are mostly conducted in patients who already have some form of a medical condition, such as HIV or cancer.
As such, their results can’t really be generalized to generalize to other populations.
And even in those studies, they often use terms like “marijuana use disorder,” which isn’t really a term to use in the way that the Department uses it.
It’s more of a clinical label, which is also not really helpful for people who don’t have a chronic medical condition or use cannabis in a medically appropriate way.
So it’s not a clear-cut case of “marihuana for medicinal use disorder” or “marijuanas use disorder.”
What does the Department say?
The Department of Medical Marijuana and Drug Abuse Prevention, or DMDAAP, says that it’s important for patients to understand that the majority or all of medical patients in Washington will still be able to use marijuana for therapeutic purposes.
That is the reality.
The DMDAap also says the state is not targeting a specific demographic group to be denied access to marijuana, but that marijuana can be an option for any person in need of help.
The Department says that patients should understand that their marijuana is still a Schedule 1 substance, and that the state will continue to take all steps to ensure that all people with medical needs are able, and have access to, medical marijuana, regardless of the specific
