Yesterday, the Washington state Department of Health wrapped up the second of four workshops to determine what constitutes a 60-day supply of medical marijuana.
The workshops have gone well so far, with many people pointing out issues and submitting their thoughts on what they believe should constitute a 60-day supply of medicine.
