Opinion requested on LEOFF 1 coverage of medical marijuana

The Attorney General’s Office has received a request for a formal published opinion on the ability of a LEOFF 1 disability board to cover the costs of medical marijuana for a LEOFF 1 retiree.

The actual question was posed by the Yakima County Prosecutor and reads as follows: “Does state law allow or require a county disability board to reimburse a member of the Law Enforcement and Fire Fighters Plan 1 (LEOFF 1) for medical marijuana, given considerations of federal law including potential effects on federal funding received by the county?” (Opinion Docket No. 17-04-04).

Those interested in providing comment to the Attorney General’s Office on this opinion request should notify Jeff Even, Deputy Solicitor General, jeff.even@atg.wa.gov, by May 24, 2017.
