Washington pot growers seek right-to-farm protection

Washington marijuana growers want to take another step toward joining mainstream agriculture, though their presence may raise questions about taxes and labor law.

Cannabis advocates are championing legislation to insert marijuana into the state’s right-to-farm law.

The law bars new neighbors from claiming dust, odors and noise from an existing farm’s lawful operations are a nuisance.

Outdoor marijuana farms in particular need protection from disgruntled neighbors, the advocates say.
