WA Governor - Bill Action
(March 11, 2022) - HB 1210

Geordi Laforge - Marijuana vs. Cannabis

The governor acknowledged the racist legacy of using the term ‘marijuana’ in reference to the plant before signing a law to use the word ‘cannabis’ in state statute and rules instead.

Here are some observations from the Friday March 11th Washington State Office of the Governor (WA Governor) Bill Action.

My top 3 takeaways:

  • At publication time, only a few steps were left before the law became effective, and WSLCB staff weren’t obligated to wait before opening rulemaking to change references in rule to ‘cannabis.’
