Marijuana Cultivation in Washington State

Initiative Measure 502 (I-502) was passed in November 2012, and changed the law concerning personal marijuana use. It went into effect December 6, 2012. It is now legal to possess an ounce of marijuana for personal use but it is not legal to grow marijuana for your own personal use. This new law did not change medical marijuana laws concerning cultivation. It is still legal to cultivate up to 15 plants for medical marijuana use.

Regulations governing how licenses will be distributed for growers and retail outlets are currently being developed. Legislators have until December 1, 2013 to complete regulations that will create a system for selling, producing and processing marijuana.
