Our state government is making crazy changes to our medical cannabis allotments

I hate it when the people use the democratic process to make changes to state or federal laws, only for those wishes to be squashed by legislators trying to exert the will of their financial donors.

My state has a constitution that allows for voters to create amendments if they can get over 60% approval in the election.

Lawmakers are supposed to abide by these constitutional amendments because they are the direct will of the people, but I keep seeing the opposite take place here as we have overly conservative politicians who are too reticent towards change. At the very least, allow a discourse to take place where we have the right to discuss the sheer possibility of change, if you’re going to insist that we need to slow down for one reason or another. Now they’re using whatever power they can to make it harder for medical marijuana patients to get the medicine that they desperately need. We didn’t have rules on allotments before regarding the amount of milligrams of THC that you’re allowed to purchase in a 70 day period. Now the conservative “small government” regime wants to make it so marijuana doctors have to limit the amount of marijuana that they can prescribe to their patients. It’s absurd when you think about a “small government” party becoming a party of anti-democratic autocracy. I just want them to get their hands off my medical marijuana products. I respect their values if they stop pretending to know better than my doctor about things that they’re not trained to understand. It’s an insult and an outrage.
