As of now in Washington, marijuana is available for recreational and medical consumption. However, the medical side has not been fully stabilized through legislation, leaving some patients worried their shop of choice for medicine might close. One mother is worried for her son who has Mowat Wilson Syndrome, causing him to have hundreds of seizures a day. Since legalization she found that using CBD oil capsules in his food twice a day leaves the seizures "...all but gone" she says.
Right now, medical marijuana is largely unregulated in Washington state. Recreational stores complain that medical retail shops aren't required to pay taxes or jump through the same administrative hoops. Without legal clarity, medical marijuana stores face the threat of being shut down.
