The Great State of Washington has announced rules for the soon-to-arrive re-legalized future. Take a look:
In addition to limiting the amount of space that can be allocated to growing recreational pot, the new draft rules in Washington state also cap how much non-medical marijuana can be grown statewide at 40 metric tons, and would limit recreational-use pot growers to a footprint of up to 30,000 square feet per facility.
In a departure from earlier draft rules, state pot regulators also sought to keep big business from dominating the recreational pot industry by barring anyone from holding a stake in more than three stores or three growing and processing facilities.
. . .
The first retail stores will likely open next June, said Sharon Foster, chairwoman of the three-member Liquor Control Board. The board said it plans to allow a total of 334 stores in the state, parceled out by county. To spread the stores out more evenly, some cities will have separate caps. Seattle, for instance, will be limited to 21 pot stores.
Among other proposed rules, regulators would close a loophole that would have allowed pot candy and other goodies to be packaged in wrappers designed to appeal to children. Marijuana in solid forms would have to be sold in child-resistant packaging.
