Recreational Marijuana

 

Washington visitors interested in using marijuana products should be aware of the details of the law regarding purchase, possession, and consumption. There are still significant restrictions for pot possession and use, as well as many practical details to be worked out about how the law will actually be implemented. Washington’s weed tourism services are still being developed.

Washington State’s Initiative 502 (I-502), which decriminalizes recreational marijuana, was voted into law in November 2012. The new law allows the creation of a licensed and regulated system of marijuana production and distribution, similar to the state’s liquor controls.
