"SMMA is a not for profit small grow co-op of legal Washington State Medical Marijuana patients and providers. Our goal is to create a safe and legal resource for patients and providers."
Seattle Medical Marijuana Association is a small grow co-op consisting of qualified marijuana patients linked together by their mutual need to produce the highest quality organic medicine for personal use. It is explicitly designed to conform with Washington State laws protecting qualified patients from prosecution for possession of medical marijuana. We strive to provide a safe place for patients that is a model of compassion and legal integrity. The SMMA operates in strict compliance with the letter and the spirit of Washington's medical marijuana laws.
As distribution of cannabis remains illegal, cultivation is the only method by which cannabis may be obtained under state law. While not specifically sanctioned under RCW: 69.51A, collective cultivation is also not denied. Due to the costly high-tech equipment and resources required for indoor cultivation of medical cannabis, the majority of patients are unable to grow their own medicine. Thus, collective cultivation has become the only viable legal option for most patients. We provide a comfortable location with safe access to a wide variety of medication including dried marijuana, edibles, extracts, and concentrates.

Washington Action: Support HB 2058 TODAY to protect patients!
The 2015 legislative session is well underway in Olympia, and our state lawmakers are taking votes on legislation that will affect patients for generations to come. The language in Senate Bill 5052, which passed on the Senate floor Friday, creates a number of serious concerns for patients. Washington can do better. We must have a smarter, patient-focused conversation on medical cannabis regulation.
That’s why Americans for Safe Access (ASA) is thrilled to announce that legislators have teamed up to introduce bipartisan House Bill 2058. This proposal revives language from Senate Bill 5073, first passed by the 2011 Legislature. It would have fully regulated the medical cannabis industry in Washington, while ensuring affordable access and protecting patients from discrimination. Unfortunately, SB 5073 was almost entirely vetoed by then-Governor Christine Gregoire, primarily due to concerns about federal intervention.
We now have another opportunity to approve and fully restore the vetoed provisions from the original 2011 bill. Send a message to your legislators TODAY, requesting support for this bill.
HB 2058 would simply reinstate the vetoed provisions of the bill first introduced by Senator Jeanne Kohl-Welles in 2011. The legislation was drafted with broad input from Alison Holcomb, author of Initiative 502. In fact, the regulatory framework was intended to serve as a model for legal distribution under I-502. If the 2011 bill had not been vetoed, Washington’s roll-out of legalization would look similar to Colorado, where existing dispensaries provide a knowledge base for the developing adult-use market.
Medical Marijauna advocates gather in Olympia for ASA Lobby Day.
With the recent change in federal law that prohibits Department of Justice interference in state-legal medical marijuana programs and a green light from D.C. to move forward with I-502, concerns about the legal liability of state employees are no longer valid. Governor Inslee has also shown his commitment to upholding the will of voters on this subject. There is no time like the present to revive this simplified solution for regulating medical cannabis.
Click here to take action NOW to support this common-sense solution.
As written, HB 2058 would:
- Create a dedicated framework for licensing and oversight of medical cannabis dispensaries, producers and processors.
- Exempt medical cannabis products from unwarranted taxes applied to marijuana sold in retail outlets that serve the adult-use market.
- Maintain the 60-day supply as currently defined.
- Allow for limited operation of patient cooperatives (now known as collective gardens gardens).
- Preserve the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship.
- Enshrine vital discrimination protections, on par with prescription drugs.
- Provide definitive arrest protection for patients and care providers who obtain a verification card from the Department of Health (DOH).
- Maintain valid documentation from health care professionals as a mechanism for asserting affirmative defenses in court, for those who do not wish to register with DOH.
CLICK HERE to email your lawmakers today and urge them to support HB 2058, a common-sense solution for regulating medical cannabis from a data-driven policy perspective.
