Unfortunately, I believe that Washington government has equated the 
"gangland attitude" of profiteering shown by so many so-called 
medical cannabis "stores" with all of us, i.e., legitimate medical 
patients and activists.

I know that most patients, me and others, care so much more about the 
value of cannabis as medicine rather than profits, but it appears 
that those who are not following the true spirit of medical cannabis 
laws have made so many waves, and so much money, that legitimate 
patients and activists are being ignored once again.

I know many legitimate patients are ignored by those so-called 
medical cannabis stores unless we can "show them the money." So sad, but true.
