House Bill 5052 requires the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) and the Department of Health to expand the retail marijuana market to include medical marijuana. Every licensed marijuana retailer has the opportunity to add a medical endorsement, if you meet the Department of Health’s requirements. The Medical Marijuana Endorsement is free. If you are interested in adding a Medical Marijuana Endorsement to your Retailer license, please follow the steps below:
- Complete the application on the WSLCB’s website titled “Application for Added Medical Marijuana Endorsement.”
- Email the application attention to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put your tradename and license number in the subject line, so we can easily identify you.
- WSLCB will add the endorsement to your existing license and send you an approval letter.
The endorsement is not effective until July 1, 2016. For more information about the Department of Health requirements, please visit their website.
