Washington Regulators Seek Public Comment on Legalizing Home Cultivation for All Adults
The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) is seeking written public comment and will hold a public hearing on Wed. Oct. 4, 2017 on whether the State should allow home grows of recreational marijuana.
Legislation enacted in 2017 directs the WSLCB to “conduct a study of regulatory options for the legalization of marijuana plant possession and cultivation by recreational marijuana users.” The study must take into account the “Cole Memo,” issued by the United State Department of Justice in 2013, which outlines the federal government’s enforcement priorities in states where medical or recreational marijuana has been legalized or decriminalized. The study and recommendations are due to the Legislature on Dec. 1, 2017
“The agency is actively engaging other states, the public, the industry and stakeholders. We know there are many perspectives to this issue and we want to ensure they are captured for our report and recommendations,” said agency director Rick Garza.
