Marc Emery’s Application to Help Grow Washington’s Legal Pot

Please consider my bid, or rather, application for consideration, to be a consultant in one of the four fields of marijuana expertise required by the WSLCB:

2) Product Quality Standards & Testing
3) Product Usage and Consumption Validation
4) Product Regulation

I do expect to be released from this inconvenient situation and repatriated back to Canada in December of this year. Perhaps you can use my resume as back-up if one of the other applicants turns to be unsuitable when you can see their capabilities (or lack thereof) at close range. Continue reading
