Legislature passes medical marijuana reform bill

On Tuesday, April 14, the Legislature passed medical marijuana reform legislation, SB 5052, Sen. Ann Rivers (La Center).

Also known as The Cannabis Patient Protection Act, SB 5052 has been a high priority for AWC. Since voter’s legalized recreational marijuana in 2012, cities and the Legislature have grappled with how to deal with the unregulated medical marijuana industry. Under SB 5052 the Liquor Control Board is charged with issuing licenses, oversight and enforcement. For a detailed description of the law click here.

SB 5052 now moves to Governor Inslee’s desk for signature.
