Bellevue, WA, Washington
Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3
Legislation: A majority of Washington citizens voted in favor of medical marijuana in November 1998. “Fifty-nine percent of voters approved Measure 692 on November 3, 1998. The law took effect on that day. It removes state-level criminal penalties on the use, possession and cultivation of marijuana by patients who possess “valid documentation” from their physician affirming that he or she suffers from a debilitating condition and that the “potential benefits of the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the health risks.” Patients diagnosed with the following illnesses are afforded legal protection under this act: cachexia; cancer; HIV or AIDS; epilepsy; glaucoma; intractable pain (defined as pain unrelieved by standard treatment or medications); and multiple sclerosis. Other conditions are subject to approval by the Washington Board of Health. Patients (or their primary caregivers) may legally possess or cultivate no more than a 60-day supply of marijuan
a. The law does not establish a state-run patient registry.
Senate Bill 6032, which takes effect on July 22, 2007, mandates the Department of Health to “adopt rules defining the quantity of marijuana that could reasonably be presumed to be a sixty-day supply for qualifying patients.” The Department is instructed to report its findings to the legislature by July 1, 2008.
Patients who possess larger quantities of cannabis than those approved by the Department will continue to receive legal protection under the law if they present evidence indicating that they require such amounts to adequately treat their qualifying medical condition.
Senate Bill 6032 also affirms changes previously recommended by the state’s Medical Quality Assurance Commission to expand the state’s list of qualifying conditions to include Crohn’s disease, hepatitis c, and any “diseases, including anorexia, which results in nausea, vomiting, wasting, appetite loss, cramping, seizures, muscle spasms, and/or spasticity, when these symptoms are unrelieved by standard treatments or medications.”
The new law also limits the ability of police to seize medicinal cannabis that is “determined … [to be] possessed lawfully [by an authorized patients] under the … law.” Source: http://www.norml.com/index.cfm?Group_ID=4571&wtm_view=medical
Law Enforcement: In Bellevue cops are big concern. Bellevue is a very wealthy community, and cops never have anything better to do then hunt down pot heads and vandals. At night you can easily see 3-4 cop cars within 3 blocks of eachother. When buying, and using, choose your locations carefully.
Where to Buy Marijuana in Bellevue: Downtown in the big park (you’ll know what i’m talking about. if you ask anyone where the big park is, they’ll direct you.) After dark there are always people hanging around smoking and slanging. Lake Hills is also a good place. it’s where all the poor people are, so it’s kinda the ghetto of bellevue, but not so ghetto that you gotta be hella afraid.
another reporter added: “In Bellevue you won’t find street dealers. I’ve only once been offered weed in bellevue on the street, and trying to find someone on the street to hook you up is an impossibility. My recomandation would be to go to Bellevue Mall and find any skater, or scruffy looking person. The only way to get weed here is to get a reliable dealer.”
Bellevue Marijuana Prices: all depends on the dealer and how well you know him. it’s best to find a reliable dealer and stick to him. his sacks will quickly grow fatter. prices can range from $10 for .5g to $10 for 2g. you’ll find some good prices.
another reporter added: “These are the prices that I’ve paid for weed in Bellevue
$120-150-1/2 (depending on quality)
$180-260-Oz (depending on quality, I’ve heard higher for really great shit but have never paid more then 260 which still gets you really great shit)”
Brands: dogshit (super powerful pacific northwest ganja) UW purps and blueberry, almost all home grown. maybe 90% home grown.
Another reporter added: “Most the time you don’t hear names but I have bought the following strains:Trainwreck(fuckin da bomb), Purple Haze, and grapefruit weed (It doesn’t have a name(but it was refered to as grapefruit weed) but it was some really great shit that circulated for a while, extremely fruity)”
