John Davis

John Davis is at the heart of the burgeoning cannabis industry in the United States. He is the chairman of Seattle Hempfest’s board of directors and the CEO of the Northwest Patient Resource Center (NWPRC), a Seattle-based provider of high-quality medicinal cannabis and cannabis products. He is also the chairman for the Coalition For Cannabis Standard of Ethics and the National Cannabis Industry Association. Earlier this year, Diego Pellicer acquired NWPRC and plans to roll out dozens of legal marijuana stores in Washington and Colorado. As the reality of marijuana legalization takes root in the U.S., John Davis joins us to outline the issues facing the development of the industry, including zoning and permitting, federal law, meeting public demand, and to discuss the fine points of the role he and his industry colleagues have taken as stewards of a massive drug policy change in the United States.

I would like you to consider the proposed changes to the medical cannabis programs and how it will affect Veterans and the sick and dying.
Washington’s Veterans for Compassionate Care is a program driven health care delivery model that provides CBD Whole Plant Botanical Cannabis therapy to the Warfighter community.
After careful review of the proposed amendments to the medical cannabis program of Washington State, we have concluded that the proposed changes by the advisory group to the LCBD to merge the medical cannabis program into I-502 regulations is harmful and unacceptable to the disabilities community.
This would effectively end the ability of Washington Veteran medical cannabis patients to have whole plant botanical cannabis substance access.

Our Veteran medical cannabis patients use cannabis therapy to help relieve the effects of PTSD,
CTE , amputations, shrapnel fragments and physical injuries sustained in their service to this nation. Like many of their fellow citizens, they are living under difficult economic stressors.
But unlike other state citizens, the Veteran community is increasingly vulnerable to conditions not prone to occur in the general population and because of unique conditions, require different and often difficult living situations that expose them to additional issues of health and well being.
The Veterans simply cannot afford to lose the ability to have whole plant botanical cannabis access under their own ability or the collective models that have worked so well to provide the needed raw plant material.

Because of their unique situations, many of our Veterans who provide their own whole plant botanical cannabis material do so knowing the unique characteristics of the plants they sow and the direct relief they receive as a result. They are able to absolve their own pains and often times the process of tilling the soil and growing their own makes for an enduring recipe of balance and wellness not achievable via pharmaceuticals.
As well, the existing cannabis regulations of 15 plants per patient, with the dried flower amounts currently within the law, and the collective garden model, are necessary for those sick and injured who are not able to garden for themselves. This is a new model that has had its share of growing pains, not least of which is having to operate in a vacuum, without the proper infrastructure other mainstream businesses are able to leverage. Yet, this new model has overcome a great deal of resistance and is working fairly well, with some accompanying problems, which continue to find solutions because of the urgent need in the community.

What would be an advancement to this model, would be a regulatory system for the safe access
points…insuring that they are providing to those in the Cannabis Civilization who are using the medicinal applications of the cannabis plant to replace large levels of highly toxic prescription medications that cause serve side effects, thus providing the safe access points protection and regulation under Washington law.

We the citizens of the state of Washington voted via initiative 692 to allow for a medical cannabis
program for approved patients to access Whole Plant Botanical Cannabis in raw form in November of
1998. I-502 w
as an initiative crafted to allow for the development of a commercial Cannabis industry to evolve and was it voted into law by the citizens of the state of Washington in 2012.
The state was given a mandate via this initiative to craft a set of rules and regulations to develop an infrastructure complete with proper operating protocols for a setting up this new industry.

Thanks for this show, Kim. And it’s so good to hear people like you (the formerly “brainwashed”, as you’ve stated) becoming so educated on the cannabis plant, and our endo-cannabinoid system, and all the rest. I’ve seen this oil cure cancer, and it’s a miraculous thing. The Chinese were using it to cure leprosy a thousand years before Jesus was doing it with his “holy anointing oil” (Kanah-Bosum, in the old Hebrew bible, mixed with Olive Oil and other herbs). Thanks again for sharing the facts!

My Mother was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer about a one year ago, she has had an extremely difficult journey. She has had two rounds of chemotherapy, one round or Y90 Radiation and now is experiencing liver failure. Jaundice, a weak appetite and depression are a few of her symptoms. I’m wondered what other treatment options she has (such as a liver transplant or a clinical trial) and also how long she has to live. My mother is my best friend and hero, she endures so much as your loved ones do too.but a cousin of mine came to our rescue by ordering this hemp oil from a foundation in UK,and so far the medication has proved effective.now my mother can do things she never could do before,i am so happy so i decided to use this medium to alert all cancer patient that with a good hemp oil,you can definitely beat cancer.if you happen to be in need of this medication,you can contact the foundation with this email:(ricksimpsonoil02@gmail.com) for more information and the delivery process.

A great testimony I must share to all cancer patients in the world. My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 primary liver cancer in
March 2013. The doctor told us there was not much to be done since the tumor was 7 inches covering his lower lobe and also had
spread to his lymph nodes. We decided to go home and called hospice which gave us morphine for pain. Ed hated the morphine which
made him vomit and also affected his mind. After one week at home we decided to do what we have done for many years, rely on
ourselves.We were only in Hospital for 3 days with severe Pain. The cancer had blocked his bile duct, after that we choose a
Naturopath doctor and have not had conventional treatments. one day i came across the use of cannabis oil for treatment of cancer
and i saw a post on how a cancer patient was cured with cannabis oil. I urgently needed help and i contacted the email :(Ricksimpsoncannaoilservice@gmail.com) to get the cannabis oil, i was given instructional guide on how to use it. After taking a gram
of oil per day. Within a couple of weeks his pain and swollen stomach disappeared and with it came hope and a good quality of
life. We never saw an ocologist and only have done a blood test after the first diagnose CT scan. His tumor marker went from over
6000 to normal and he is feeling well. We don’t know how this is going to play out, but enjoy every day and give thanks. As i am
writing this post, my husband is free from liver cancer and the doctor confirmed that the cancer was cured permanently. For
immediate assistance on every medical issue you and your family may be experiencing, contact Dr Rick via email: (Ricksimpsoncannaoilservice@gmail.com) for more information and the delivery process.

Hi, what a great forum. I’d like to request a prayer for Rick Simpson and to Dr. David who have cured my Husband of his lung cancer. He was diagnosed about 3 year ago, beat it once and then a few months later it came back in his brain. We have been doing everything possibly, medication wise, and the cancer seems to be immune to chemotherapy and radiation. The doctor talks about this being his last year of life, so I feel like he has lost hope but i didn’t. after several online search, I found Cannabis oil so i decided to give it a try and i ordered for it from ( ricksimpsonmedicalcenter@ outlook. com ), things got better as my Husband started using the oil treatment and to God be the glory I didn’t lose my lovely husband to lungs cancer anymore. So i’m here to share this testimony to the world at large as my Husband has been saved by the Cannabis Oil. I’m so glad!.
