Washington State Releases Draft Rules For Legal Pot

Posted: Updated:
Seattle -

(AP) Officials in Washington state are taking their first stab at setting rules for the state's new legal weed industry.

Among the preliminary draft regulations released Thursday: They want to track marijuana plants from "seed to store," and while they're putting a cap on the number of retail stores in each county, they're not planning to limit the number of licensed pot growers or processors.

Voters last November made Washington and Colorado the first states to legalize the sale of taxed marijuana to adults over 21 at state-licensed stores. Washington's Liquor Control Board has spent nearly the past eight months developing rules for the industry.
