A Bill to Decriminalize Growing Pot at Home Just Died, but Its Sponsor Isn’t Giving up Yet

The state of Washington will continue to sniff around your garden for at least another year, now that a proposal to decriminalize growing up to six cannabis plants at home has died.

House Bill 1019 seemed like an easy slam-dunk — virtually every other state that has legalized pot has also allowed people to grow small amounts of weed — but it looks like the bill has fizzled in a committee for the year with no vote scheduled.

“I think it is fair to say that we were all caught of guard by the lack of a vote,” says John Kingsbury, who has been trying for years to get the state to relax penalties for growing your own plants.
