Washington: Liquor Control Board Calls for Cannabis Cultivation Limit to be Quadrupled

Washington State Liquor Control Board Spokesman Brian Smith announcedcannabud Friday that the group is proposing that the state more than quadruple its legal limit for cannabis cultivation. The Board is calling for the amount of cannabis allowed to be grown throughout the state from 2 million square feet to 8.5 million.

The proposed change is in response to legal cannabis shops in the state not being able to meet demand because of the limited amount of producers. Some producers, looking to take advantage of the situation, have been charging exorbitant prices, sometimes $25 or $30 a gram. The hope is that such a large increase in allowable cannabis being cultivated will increase the competitive marketing, subsequently driving down prices for shop owners and consumers.

The Liquor Control Board has received over 2,800 applications for those wanting to cultivate cannabis, and only 290 of those have been approved for license, indicating that the state could quickly fill the space if it is increased.

  3. This is great news for us. I own the largest marijuana marketing and advertising company in the nation and some our best clients are producers and processors. We work with almost every 502 store in the state of Washington and a good amount of 502 producer/processors as well. Because we work with so many cannabis business, we see first hand what’s missing and what’s needed in most areas where retail, producers and processors do not. Again this would be great to see LCB offer more 502 licenses. You’ve got my vote! If you’re interested in what we do and how we can help check us out. OnlineMarijuanaDesign.com
