State board issues new marijuana business rules; retail license application schedule

Sep 23, 2015

The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) on Wednesday adopted emergency rules and issued new draft rules to begin the public process of aligning the medical marijuana market with the existing recreational market.

The board’s actions are the result of 2015 legislation, the Cannabis Patient Protection Act, which established a priority system for licensing existing medical marijuana outlets, according to a WSLCB media release. The emergency rules, which are effective immediately, allow the WSLCB to begin the process of licensing new retail outlets that may sell both medical and recreational marijuana. Existing recreational stores may also apply for an endorsement to sell both.
