Demand Governor Inslee Veto Tax on Patients
| Geoffrey Marshall
The Washington State Legislature has passed HB 2136, which revises the tax system for the I-502 adult use marijuana system, but in doing so, imposes a 37% excise tax on medical cannabis patients in the state. This is unnecessary and forces a harsh financial burden on patients. Because health insurance does not cover medical cannabis, and patients often face additional financial hardships, patients advocates need to raise their voice before Governor Inslee signs the bill on Wednesday, July 1st.
