Washington will be Issuing New Retail Cannabis Licenses

The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Control Board (WSLCB) released new draft rules and regulations for the process of aligning Washington’s medical marijuana market with the established recreational market.

The WSLCB will begin accepting new retail cannabis license applications on October 12, 2015. There are three tiers of criteria for those who will be first in line to receive licenses:
