New Washington rule opens marijuana industry to people with criminal records

New Washington rule opens marijuana industry to people with criminal records

KING 5 Staff | October 2, 2021

A new rule takes effect Saturday in Washington that removes more barriers for people with a criminal history to enter the legal marijuana industry.

Starting Oct. 2, people who have felony convictions on their criminal records will be able to apply for a license to grow, process, or sell marijuana. Up until now, a single felony prevented someone from being considered.

The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board will now review those applications and conduct a more in-depth review if a certain criteria is met.
