Purpose and intent. RCW 69.51A.005
"THE SPIRIT OF THE LAW WOULD RECOGNIZE THE NECESSITY OF HAVING SMALL COOPERATIVE VENTURES," DAN SATTERBERG, DISTRICT ATTORNEY IN KING COUNTY
Seattle Medical Marijuana's goal is to respectfully serve the Washington State Medical Marijuana community. As a responsible medical marijuana patient, it is your obligation to be familiar with the laws. Below is the stated purpose and intent of RCW 69.51a, which Seattle Medical Marijuana is in compliance with and will not deviate from under any circumstances. We appreciate your understanding.
"The people of Washington state find that some patients with terminal or debilitating illnesses, under their physician's care, may benefit from the medical use of marijuana. Some of the illnesses for which marijuana appears to be beneficial include chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting in cancer patients; AIDS wasting syndrome; severe muscle spasms associated with multiple sclerosis and other spasticity disorders; epilepsy; acute or chronic glaucoma; and some forms of intractable pain.
The people find that humanitarian compassion necessitates that the decision to authorize the medical use of marijuana by patients with terminal or debilitating illnesses is a personal, individual decision, based upon their physician's professional medical judgment and discretion.
Therefore, the people of the state of Washington intend that:
Qualifying patients with terminal or debilitating illnesses who, in the judgment of their physicians, may benefit from the medical use of marijuana, shall not be found guilty of a crime under state law for their possession and limited use of marijuana;
Persons who act as designated providers to such patients shall also not be found guilty of a crime under state law for assisting with the medical use of marijuana; and
Physicians also be excepted from liability and prosecution for the authorization of marijuana use to qualifying patients for whom, in the physician's professional judgment, medical marijuana may prove beneficial."
