Date:9/20/2010

WASHINGTON, Sept. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The District of Columbia Patients' Cooperative (DCPC), a non-profit, medical cannabis organization registered in the District of Columbia, has submitted comments to the Office of the DC Attorney General addressing numerous issues on proposed regulations announced 45 days ago.  

DCPC's comments may be viewed online at http://www.dcpatients.org/DCPC_comments.pdf along with the comments of cannabis advocacy groups including Americans for Safe Access and the Marijuana Policy Project.

  4. Best practices used in other states are being ignored pertaining to caregivers.
  5. Police potentially have access to patient records at dispensaries.

  11. Proposed regulations do not address re-imbursement for medicine provided to low income patients.

The District Council has until October 19, 2010 to approve or disapprove the p
