As California Moves to Ban Dabs, Washington Wants to Legalize

March 26, 2014 | Andy Cush

Last week, we learned that a bill in California’s state legislature could ban dispensaries from legally selling high-THC cannabis concentrates, and now, it appears Washington is taking the opposite tack. The state’s House and Senate voted to approve House Bill 2304, which calls to legalize retail sale of dabs. NORML explains more:

As passed, the measure amends state law to allow for licensed cannabis retailers to produce and sell cannabis concentrates, which are defined as extract products possessing a THC concentration of greater than 60 percent.

Under the state’s 2012 I-502 initiative, retailers are permitted to sell to those over the age of 21 up to one ounce of marijuana, and/or 16 ounces of marijuana-infused product in solid form, and/or up to 72 ounces of marijuana-infused product in liquid form. House Bill 2304 allows retailers to additionally sell up to seven grams of marijuana concentrates to a customer at one time.

The bill is awaiting a signature or veto from Washington Governor Jay Inslee.
