In your Jan. 13. editorial you wrote “The Legislature should have brought the free-wheeling, nudge-nudge-wink-wink medical marijuana market under control last year while approving the state Liquor Control Board’s competent implementation of Initiative 502.” While you are not clear as to what you mean with the “nudge-nudge” comment I will assume you seem to think that some portion of those using medical marijuana are not exactly honest.
If that is the case then maybe the Medical Quality Assurance Commission, and not the Liquor Control Board, should be the one doing the controlling since they regulate the doctors who hand out the authorizations. The people who are pushing this argument need to come up with some verifiable studies to support their claim and so far I have not read of any.
As for the LCB’s being competent – from what I have read and seen, that is far from the case. The LCB seems to have little appreciation for the open meetings act and has been more interested in expanding their turf and protecting their jobs.
