That’s fine, as far as it goes — but “Muraco” also says “I believe the successful implementation of I-502 will require shutting down the illicit market that is medical cannabis,” as revealed by a public records request, reports 420 Leaks.
Wait, what? “Illicit market”? There are a lot of very ill medical marijuana patients who count on that so-called “illicit market” for a supply of the strains, concentrates, tinctures and topicals that make life livable. So where the actual fuck does “Muraco” get off characterizing that entire community as “illicit” and in need of “shutting down”?
Who the hell, in short, died and left her queen?
“Muraco,” 55, has clearly shown she has no problem throwing medical marijuana patients under the bus, as long as she can “triple her profits.” Ugly? Yes. Tawdry? Definitely. Capitalistic to the point of sociopathic? You make the call.
‘Muraco’ Keeps Saying Stupid Shit
In any event, “Muraco” keeps saying really stupid shit to the press; shit like this: “Since ‘naturopathic’ doctors were allowed to authorize the use of marijuana, any dude with a bad foot can now get a note from his doctor.” (Source)“Green Buddha (within blocks of Roosevelt High School) had assistance from our medical community to get going in 2009, and Muraco has now shown her true intentions,” states a press release from Kirk Ludden of the group Cannabis Patient Protection.
“She has exhibited atrocious behavior towards patients, growers, medical staff and other members of the medical cannabis community,” Ludden said. “For example, getting no contact/restraining orders, terrorizing lawyers and other collective owners while cyber bullying/hacking their websites.”
“She has used questionable PhD credentials on a public medical cannabis dosing review paper,” Ludden averred. “Over the years she has gone by several different names, one being Holly B. McClintock. So does anybody really know her in this community?”
Incidentally, falsely claiming to hold credentials such as PhD is a gross misdemeanor in Washington.
Protest Set For July 20 at Green Buddha
A “Profits Before Patients” protest is scheduled for this Saturday, July 20, at 11 a.m., in front of Green Buddha collective, 2253 NE 65th Street, Seattle, WA 98115.
Patients who believe that the medical marijuana system is not an “illicit market” and that it fills an important — and in many cases life-saving — function by providing safe access to seriously ill people, are encouraged to attend.
Perceptions of an ‘Illicit Market’? Would That Be Your Doing?
Medical cannabis is not an “illicit market;” there are legitimate collectives supplying legitimate patients every day. Those who are two-faced and have, for years, been making a living off medicinal cannabis patients, but are now turning their backs and calling their own businesses an “illicit market,” are turncoats within the medical marijuana community.But it’s especially ironic, since “Muraco” insists upon characterizing the medical marijuana market as “illicit,” that her very own actions and business practices are probably a big part of any existing perception in that regard.
“People and organizations like this make our medical market appear illicit,” Ludden said. “It is time for them to get out. They need to pay back taxes from the day I-502 passed, since they were in it for profit from the beginning.”
That shouldn’t be a problem for “Muraco,” since she boasted to Businessweek that she’s “undeterred by taxes” on the cannabis she sells. In fact, “Muraco” predicted that she’ll earn from $70,000 to $100,000 a year, compared to the $24,000 she made last year.
It’s nice to know the shiny imagined profit “Muraco” had in her head when she sold out the medical marijuana community in Washington state.
There you have it, folks — dangle $100K in front of “Muraco Kyashna-tocha,” I mean Holly B. McClintock, and she’s your girl.
