Washington State Bill To Allow Interstate Marijuana Commerce Is Officially Heading To Governor’s Desk
The bill would still require a federal policy change
A bill to allow interstate marijuana commerce in Washington State is officially heading to the governor’s desk.
The House approved the Senate-passed legislation from Sen. Ann Rivers (R) on Wednesday, but members adopted a minor amendment that required concurrence from the opposite chamber.
That happened on Friday, meaning the bill is now on its way to Gov. Jay Inslee (D) for his signature.
The measure would allow the governor to enter into agreement with other legal cannabis states, pending a federal policy change “to allow for the interstate transfer of cannabis” or a federal Justice Department opinion “allowing or tolerating” marijuana commerce across state lines.
