Liquor Control Board seeks comments about draft marijuana market rules

Produced in Washington logo
The Liquor Control Board (LCB) released the initial draft rules for I-502 implementation. These rules reflect the Board’s stated goal of developing a tightly regulated and controlled market, and also demonstrate the agency’s initial thinking on what Washington’s system of growing, processing and retailing will look like. The Board is concerned with out-of-state diversion of product, traceability of products, responsible business practices, youth access and other public and consumer safety issues.

Initial draft rules may be downloaded at:

By releasing these initial draft rules before filing the formal draft rules the LCB is soliciting public comment before starting the official draft rule process in mid-June. Vetting these rules with stakeholders allows the LCB to adapt and improve them. These draft rules will benefit from community input, alternatives and adjustments so please review closely and send suggestions to the below contact points no later than June 10, 2013.
