Attorney General Bob Ferguson today sent a letter to the Liquor Control Board sharing his recommendations about the board’s proposed permanent rules on recreational marijuana. Ferguson highlighted his concern that rules be crafted to address all marijuana products that have the potential to appeal to children.
“As our state implements voter-approved recreational marijuana, it’s crucial that the rules governing it take every measure possible to protect children,” Ferguson said. “That’s why I am calling upon the LCB to regulate not just marijuana-infused products that can appeal to kids, but also flavored usable marijuana and concentrates with the same potential.”
The current administrative rules were initially implemented as a temporary, emergency measure last year. The LCB is now working to establish permanent rules.
