US Virgin Islands: The Next Medical Cannabis Destination

WASHINGTON:  This week lawmakers from around the country are in Seattle for the National Conference of State Legislatures. While here, Senator Terrance ‘Positive’ Nelson was back for a second visit in recent months on a fact finding mission as he writes medical marijuana laws for the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Acting as a tour guide, Mike West of Green Lion Farms led Senator Nelson and a group of legislators onto The Herban Safari Pot Tour Bus in Seattle and visited several cannabis businesses of interest to the visitors.

While being given a full history of medical cannabis in Washington the visitors were able to see a medical cannabis dispensary (Northwest Patient Resource Center), a processing facility (Green Lion Farms), a testing lab (Analytical 360), and a retail cannabis shop (Seattle Cannabis Company).

While the tour only lasted a few hours, lawmakers were able to get a feel of what is working in Washington and what challenges they may be looking at as they plan to legalize medical marijuana later this year.
