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 recreational use 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. The fight to keep these 2 separate, as well as work towards educating the public, and preserving Medical Cannabis in the state of Washington is the mission.
"If you continue to think what you've always thought,
you continue to get what you've always gotten."
"To believe what has not occurred in history
will not occur at all is to argue disbelief in the dignity of man."
"Honesty is more than just not telling lies.
Honesty is about being sincere and direct in a way that produces a positive result."
