On the Federal level, the government has already given us a glimpse of the future of medical marijuana. They give it names like Sativex, or Epidiolex.
While we understand people’s reluctance to step up and help to educate others during the darker days or prohibition, there is no denying that the hoarding of tech (technique and technology) definitely led to more than one home hash lab explosion or cultivation catastrophe that could have potentially been avoided.
Imagine that you applied for a driver’s license with your state but in order to do so, you had to employ lawyers or consultants to help you through the application and then submit a fee of thousands (or tens of thousands) of dollars to your state along with that application. Now imagine that your temporary license has been expired for two years and even though you have provided everything that the state has asked for, including that hefty application fee, they continue to insist that they are just too busy to issue you, or anyone else, a permanent driver’s license.
What is happening with these temporary licenses is a travesty. Sen. McGuire calls SB 67 a Band-Aid, but this problem is a self-inflicted bullet wound to the foot and we’re not sure that the industry will be able to limp away unscathed this time.
