The U.S. government is looking to regulate recreational marijuana, but the state of Washington, home to the nation’s first legal marijuana dispensary, is also eyeing a different way to regulate it.
As a result, the state has launched a medical marijuana initiative aimed at treating people with chronic pain and other ailments.
Washington state and Colorado, the other two states that have legalized marijuana for medical use, have had a rocky relationship for a long time.
The two states have clashed over a variety of issues, including a ban on marijuana in schools and public parks, as well as the use of medical marijuana by some patients.
The U.N. human rights body’s Office for the Coordination of Human Rights has also expressed concern about the marijuana legalization, which could mean that some of the most vulnerable populations, including women and the mentally ill, may be affected.
The medical marijuana bill was passed by the state legislature earlier this month.
It aims to establish a system for medical marijuana patients to obtain a state-issued medical marijuana card, and it will set up an oversight board to oversee the program.
The initiative also aims to protect the health and safety of patients by establishing a system to track the use and safety records of marijuana dispensaries and doctors.
The Washington state Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Board has approved the initiative.
