Minors Present on Premises to Support Families Impacted by School Closures
Re-Activated Allowance through Dec. 31, 2022
Applies to: Cannabis Producers and Processors
Due to the related COVID – 19 impacts, the LCB is temporarily relaxing enforcement of WAC 314-55-015 involving the prohibition of minors being present on premises of licensed cannabis producers/processors in limited circumstances. This temporary allowance is to accommodate families that have been impacted by school closures. Effective immediately the LCB will not enforce the provisions of WAC 314-55-015 for families who have children under the age of 16 on the licensed premises, so long as the following conditions are met:
- The person under 16 years of age is a child or grandchild of the licensee,
- The person under 16 years of age is not engaging in any work or act of employment for the licensed business,
- The person under 16 years of age does not possess any products associated with the production, processing, or sales of cannabis,
This advisement covers only the licensed cannabis facility for producers and processor, and does not include or cover retail locations or transportation vehicles.
