Marijuana legalization update and FAQ

December 6, 2012, marks the first day that I-502 decriminalizes certain amounts of marijuana possession and use. Washington citizens and government officials are all discussing the potential impacts of the legalization of marijuana, but there still aren’t concrete answers to some very big questions.

AWC addressed many of these major issues concerning legalization in a webinar at the end of November. The recorded webinar can be found here, along with the PowerPoint presentations. Speakers discussed the impacts on employers, public safety and the Liquor Control Board (LCB) licensing procedure.

AWC also prepared an FAQ – found here – that we hope will answer some of the questions raised in the webinar.
