Cannabis Patient Protection (CPP) is an advocate for protecting the rights of cannabis patients, designated providers, health care professionals and the Washington State Medical Cannabis Law (RCW 69.51A) that was approved by voters November 3, 1998. In this state authorizations are given for the "medical use of cannabis", this constitutes medicine just like other things that people take for what ails them and is protected under HIPAA. With the approval of social cannabis for the recreational user on November 6, 2012, some people continue to think that they can combine the two. This is not possible. There are 2 distinct and separate cannabis markets: (1) Medical Cannabis for qualifying patients, and (2) the Social Cannabis for the recreational use. This organization will fight to keep these 2 separate, as well as work towards educating the public, and preserving Medical Cannabis in the state of Washington.
