The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Washington

In 2015, the Washington Legislature passed SB 5052, the Cannabis Patients Protection Act (CPPA), establishing official state regulations for the production, possession, sale and use of medical marijuana. Medical cannabis patients are allowed to purchase up to three times the current limits for recreational adult-use marijuana. Only cannabis patients in the authorization database, who have medical marijuana ID cards can purchase products free of sales and use taxes. Medical cards expire each year for adults, six months for minors, but some authorizing healthcare providers may specify an earlier expiration date.
