Washington’s Legislature Is Close to Passing Major Pot Enforcement Reform

Washington’s Legislature Is Close to Passing Major Pot Enforcement Reform

Lester Black | Apr 11, 2019

Lawmakers in Olympia may soon force the state’s weed regulator to loosen penalties on pot farmers and retailers, metaphorically forcing the Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) to take a huge bong hit and chill out. After years of Washington’s weed industry complaining that they face a punitive enforcement climate, the state Legislature is now close to passing a proposed law that would dramatically reform the state’s pot regulatory enforcement rules.

If passed, the law would reduce penalties for the majority of regulatory violations, with some penalties changing, from a canceled license after the first infraction under the old rules to just a written warning under the proposed new rules.
