The Washington State Liquor Control Board (Board) today approved the proposed rules that, if ultimately enacted, will help govern Washington State’s system of producing, processing and retailing recreational marijuana. The 42-page, single-spaced rules detail the requirements for participating in Washington’s system.
“Public safety is our top priority,” said Board Chair Sharon Foster.
The Board will host public hearings about the proposed rules in Ellensburg, Olympia, the Seattle area, and Spokane August 6-8 and final rules will be adopted August 14. While the rules will be adopted by the end of this summer, they are not un-changeable. Like alcohol rules, marijuana rules are expected to change as this new commercial system matures.
