Medical Marijuana Dispensaries: Closing Shop
With marijuana growing in popularity, are there “too many” medical marijuana dispensaries? Many legal states are beginning to crack down on the number of dispensaries allowed to operate in the area. Many citizens don’t approve of medical marijuana being so readily available. Tacoma has announced that within 60 days they will deliver messages to close shop. The shops then have the opportunity to contest and appear in court within 3 days. The rules in place to protect medical marijuana dispensaries are vague, and causing over 48 businesses to vacate.
The people in charge of these regulations are the Liquor and Cannabis Board (previously the Liquor Board). Why is it that the Liquor Board is defaulted to have this responsibility? Why isn’t there a Cannabis Board that is separate? This organization isn’t necessarily prepared to handle making important decisions, effecting legal business owners that pay taxes. There should be some sort of medical marijuana dispensaries enforcement department to help guide and regulate this industry.
Medical marijuana dispensaries are important, as many cater to different medical users. The beauty of medical marijuana is that it treats a variety of ailments. Therefore some dispensaries cater to smokers, while others may cater to edibles, and such. Each location gives you a unique experience. If we begin limiting the number of medical marijuana dispensaries, then we should be limiting the amount of liquor stores. There are just as many of them, if not more. Support your local medical marijuana dispensaries while you can!
Dabs have become increasingly more popular recently, and will continue to grow to be more accepted. Dabbing is taking the marijuana industry to an all-new level, creating controversy on a variety of levels. The image of the marijuana industry is changing, and concentrates are playing an even bigger role. Both sides of the argument have valid concerns and there need to be better-educated regulations on the production to provide the purest medicine possible.
What are dabs? They go by a variety of names: wax, shatter, budder, hash oil, etc. They are essentially the same product, but refer to the different stages of production. Process shatter more, and it will become budder and so on. The most common extraction process involves Butane, which has created a major controversy.
There are a lot of dangers involved in the traditional dab setting. First you are heating a nail with a torch to very high temperatures, and all the dangers that follow. There is a level of carefulness involved in dabbing. Secondly the dabbing process looks odd to outsiders, which has potential to create a bad image of the marijuana scene. Because there is little to no regulation with concentrates, there are a lot of inferior products on the market. As dabs increase in fame, more “dirty oils” will flood the market with amateurs trying to create their own concentrates. Butane has a lot of negative health effects, which negates the purpose of using a non-opiate painkiller. Cleaner alternatives are beginning to surface, such as CO2 and ice water. However the cost to produce these cleaner alternatives is higher. What is the price of your health?
The benefits of dabs are clear. They provide an instant surge of cannabinoids producing instant relief. Dabs are a great treatment of chronic pain, without creating opiate dependency. As technology progresses, and we better understand THC extraction processes, clean and pure dabs will be more readily available. Check out all the Dabtech products HERE!
